LOS ANGELES, July 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wilshire Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:WIBC) (the "Company"), the holding company for Wilshire Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $15.6 million, or $0.20 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. This compares to net income of $14.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted common share, for the same period of the prior year, and net income of $18.6 million, or $0.24 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2015.

Jae Whan (J.W.) Yoo, President and CEO of Wilshire Bancorp, said, "We continued to generate a high level of profitability by focusing on our core competencies, delivering outstanding service to our customers, and maintaining stable credit quality. Our profitability enabled us to increase our quarterly cash dividend paid on July 15, 2015 by 20% to $0.06 per share while still maintaining sufficient capital to support organic and external growth strategies.

"We are making good progress in integrating and ramping-up our expanded residential mortgage lending group, which generated $90 million in loan production during the second quarter. We had a solid quarter of loan production across our other major lending areas and continue to maintain a healthy pipeline of quality lending opportunities," said Mr. Yoo.

STATEMENT OF OPERATIONS

Net interest income before provision for losses on loans and loan commitments totaled $37.5 million for the second quarter of 2015, an increase of 3.7% from $36.1 million for the second quarter of 2014, and an increase of 2.7% from $36.5 million for the first quarter of 2015. The increase in net interest income for the second quarter of 2015 compared to the prior quarters is primarily attributable to an increase in average total loans.

Net interest margin was 3.59% for the second quarter of 2015, compared to 3.69% for the first quarter of 2015, and 4.35% for the second quarter of 2014. The decline in net interest margin from the prior quarter was primarily attributable to an increase in average cash and cash equivalents. During the second quarter of 2015, growth in total deposits resulted in an increase in cash held at the Federal Reserve Bank yielding 25 basis points. A portion of the resulting excess liquidity was utilized to purchase investment securities during the second quarter and to payoff overnight FHLB borrowings.

Loan yields were 4.78% for the second quarter of 2015, unchanged from the first quarter of 2015 and down from 5.20% for the second quarter of 2014.

The total cost of deposits was 0.61% for the second quarter of 2015, compared to 0.58% for the first quarter of 2015, and 0.48% for the second quarter of 2014. Compared to the first quarter of 2015, the increase in the cost of deposits for the second quarter of 2015 was primarily due to an increase in rates paid on time deposit accounts.

Non-Interest Income

Total non-interest income was $11.3 million for the second quarter of 2015, compared to $15.3 million for the first quarter of 2015, and $10.7 million for the second quarter of 2014.

The Company recognized $4.2 million in net gain on sales of loans during the second quarter of 2015, compared to $6.8 million for the first quarter of 2015, and $4.7 million for the second quarter of 2014. The decline in net gain on sale of loans for the second quarter of 2015, compared to the previous quarter was due to a decline in gains from the sale of non-performing loans.

Other non-interest income totaled $4.0 million for the second quarter of 2015, compared to $5.4 million for the first quarter of 2015, and $2.9 million for the second quarter of 2014. The decrease from the first to second quarter of 2015 was primarily due to a decline in income from the change in value of servicing assets from $1.6 million for the first quarter of 2015 to $108,000 for the second quarter of 2015.

Non-Interest Expense

Total non-interest expense was $24.7 million for the second quarter of 2015, compared with $22.9 million for the first quarter of 2015, and $24.6 million for the second quarter of 2014. The increase in non-interest expense from the prior quarter was primarily due to an increase in salaries and benefits and other non-interest expenses.

Total salaries and employee benefits expense was $14.2 million for the second quarter of 2015, compared with $12.7 million for the first quarter of 2015, and $12.5 million for the second quarter of 2014. The increase in salaries and employee benefits for the second quarter of 2015 compared to the first quarter of 2015 was largely due to the full quarter impact of the addition of former Bank of Manhattan Mortgage Division employees.

Other non-interest expense for the second quarter of 2015 totaled $6.2 million, compared to $5.8 million for the first quarter of 2015, and $7.1 million for the second quarter of 2014. The increase in other non-interest expense from the first quarter of 2015 was attributable to an increase in other loan expenses and OREO-related expenses.

The Company's operating efficiency ratio was 50.56% for the second quarter of 2015, compared with 44.26% for the first quarter of 2015, and 52.38% for the second quarter of 2014.

BALANCE SHEET

Total loans receivable (net of deferred fees and costs) were $3.52 billion at June 30, 2015, compared to $3.51 billion at March 31, 2015. The increase in loans during the second quarter of 2015 was primarily driven by growth in residential real estate loans.

* Warehouse lines of credit are reported as commercial and industrial loans on the consolidated balance sheet.

Originations for the second quarter of 2015 totaled $292.9 million, compared to $397.7 million for the first quarter of 2015, and $282.0 million for the second quarter of 2014. The decline in loan origination for the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015, was due to a decrease in warehouse lending originations offset by an increase in residential mortgage loan originations.

Total SBA loans held-for-sale at the end of the second quarter of 2015 were $5.9 million, compared to $7.7 million at the end of the previous quarter. The decision to retain or sell SBA loans is made on a quarter-to-quarter basis, depending on prevailing pricing in the secondary market and the Company's liquidity needs.

Total deposits were $3.90 billion at June 30, 2015, compared with $3.64 billion at March 31, 2015. The increase in total deposits was attributable to growth in all deposits categories except for savings and interest checking deposits.

CREDIT QUALITY

The allowance for loan losses totaled $48.8 million, or 1.38% of gross loans (excluding loans held-for-sale), at June 30, 2015, compared to $48.2 million, or 1.37% of gross loans (excluding loans held-for-sale), at March 31, 2015.
