Bay Commercial Bank Reports Third Quarter 2014 Results

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Oct. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bay Commercial Bank (OTCQB:BCML) (the "Bank") today announced its third quarter 2014 operating results.

The Bank reported total assets as of September 30, 2014 of $503.5 million including loans outstanding of $339.4 million compared to September 30, 2013 total assets of $327.2 million and total loans outstanding of $252.7 million. At September 30, 2014, total deposits were $414.2 million compared to total deposits of $268.3 million at September 30, 2013. The Bank's net operating income for the third quarter 2014 was $1,556,000 or $0.33 per share compared to net income for the same period in 2013 of $634,000, or $0.13 per share. The increase in net operating income for the third quarter 2014 compared to the same period in 2013 was related to higher net interest income partially offset by higher operating costs, and higher non-interest revenue as a result of the recognition of additional bargain purchase gain related to the merger that closed in the second quarter 2014.

For the first nine months of 2014, the Bank reported net income of $3,900,000 compared to net income of $1,901,000 for the same period in 2013. For the most recent nine month period, the net income to shareholders was $0.82 per share, compared to $0.39 per share for the same period of 2013. The increase in operating income for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 compared to the same period in 2013 was primarily the result of higher net interest income partially offset by higher operating expenses, higher non-interest revenue as a result of the recognition of the bargain purchase gain, and higher loss provisions in 2014 to cover higher charge-offs as compared to 2013.

George J. Guarini, Chief Executive Officer of the Bank, stated, "While we are very pleased with our operating results, we place great emphasis on achieving economies of scale. To that end, we continue to see organic and strategic growth opportunities ahead. We are confident we are well positioned to take advantage of those opportunities. Having fully integrated our third acquisition, we believe in the combination of organic and strategic emphasis, while maintaining a vigilant eye toward asset quality."
