Bay Commercial Bank Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., July 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bay Commercial Bank (OTCBB:BCML) (the “Bank”) today announced its second quarter 2016 operating results.

The Bank reported total assets as of June 30, 2016 of $641.8 million including loans outstanding of $505.0 million compared to June 30, 2015 total assets of $606.0 million and total loans outstanding of $400.2 million. At June 30, 2016, total deposits were $535.7 million compared to total deposits of $524.3 million at June 30, 2015. The Bank’s net income for the second quarter 2016 was $1,455,000 or basic income per share of $0.27 compared to net operating income for the same period in 2015 of $1,888,000, or $0.34 per basic share. At June 30, 2016 and 2015, our book value per share was $13.71 and $13.23, respectively.

Net income in the second quarter of 2015 was higher than the same period in 2016 primarily due to merger related revenue. Excluding merger related revenue from 2015 results, net operating income in 2016 is higher than in 2015 by $0.09 per share. This increase is primarily due to higher net interest income and lower operating expenses.

For the first six months of 2016, the Bank’s net income decreased by $4.5 million as compared to the same period in 2015 primarily due to the recognition of a total bargain purchase gain of $7.4 million in 2015 as compared to none in 2016. This decrease is offset by higher net interest income of $2.4 million for the first six months of 2016 when compared to the same period in 2015 as a result of an increase in earning assets. In addition, operating expenses (excluding nonrecurring merger related expenses recorded in 2015) declined by $355,000. The effective tax rate and therefore tax expense was lower in 2015 as certain merger related revenues and expenses are not subject to tax.

George J. Guarini, Chief Executive Officer of the Bank, stated, “Our performance in 2016 shows that our organic platform is effective. Our organic growth to date indicates that we know how to build market share in the new markets gained as a result of mergers in 2014 and 2015. In the coming quarters, we plan to increase our investment in resources to expand our reach in Agricultural and SBA lending. Expanding these business lines will add diversification to our revenue stream and enhance our management of loan concentration risks.”

Guarini continued, “With our strong capital position and growing earnings we are in an excellent position to expand both organically and through mergers.”
