Community Bank of the Bay Announces Second Quarter 2015 Results

OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2015) - Community Bank of the Bay (OTCBB: CBYAA), a San Francisco Bay Area commercial bank with full service offices in Oakland and Danville, and two business offices in the Silicon Valley, reported unaudited earnings results for its quarter ending June 30, 2015.

2015 Second Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Pre-tax operating income for the quarter ending June 30, 2015 totaled $571.4 thousand, an increase of $221.8 thousand, or 63.4 percent, from $349.6 thousand reported in the same period a year ago. Net profit after tax totaled $340.2 thousand, or $0.08 earnings per common share, compared to $278.7 thousand, or $0.06 earnings per common share in 2014. This 22.1 percent increase in after tax profit occurred despite a $160.3 thousand increase in tax expenses as the Bank is now estimating its all in tax rate at 40 percent. 

  • Total assets at June 30, 2015 were $253.2 million, an increase of $61.8 million, or 32.3 percent from $191.4 million at June 30, 2014. Average earning assets for the second quarter of 2015 reached $229.9 million, an increase of $49.2 million, or 27.2 percent, compared with $180.7 million for the same period in 2014. 

  • Deposits increased $13.9 million, or 6.5 percent to $226.8 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $212.9 million at March 31, 2015. Deposits increased $57.4 million or 33.8 percent from the second quarter of 2014. 

  • Loans increased $2.5 million, or 1.4 percent to $179.5 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $177 million at March 31, 2015. Loans increased $34.1 million or 23.5 percent from the second quarter of 2014. 

  • Non-performing assets increased $212.4 thousand to $2.3 million compared to the prior quarter, and decreased by $1.1 million from $3.4 million from the same quarter a year ago. Non-performing assets now represent 1.3 percent of total loans. 

  • Net interest margin for the second quarter decreased 11 basis point to 4.29 percent compared with 4.40 percent for the prior quarter and increased 24 basis points from 4.05 percent for the second quarter of 2014.

  • Capital levels remain well above FDIC "Well Capitalized" standards. June 30, 2015 Equity of $21.9 million increased 10.1 percent from the prior year and resulted in Tier 1 Leverage of 9.03 percent, and Tier 1 Capital and Total Capital ratios of 10.88 percent and 12.13 percent respectively.

"The Bank continued to report a number of positive trends in the second quarter. Pre-tax income growth of almost 64% from a year ago has allowed us to make a number of important investments in personnel and those have in turn continued to drive growth, especially in core deposits. Year to date deposit growth of 14% included over 40% growth in key non-interest bearing DDA balances. These impressive increases in deposits demonstrate the value of our relationship-oriented banking philosophy, and position the bank nicely for both additional loan growth and a potentially rising interest rate environment," said William S. Keller, President and Chief Executive Officer. "With Assets, Deposits and Loans all at record highs, the bank is looking forward to a strong second half of 2015."
