San Diego Private Bank Reports Increased Fourth Quarter Earnings

CORONADO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 31, 2014) - San Diego Private Bank (OTCQB: SDPB) today announced the bank's condition and results of operations for the fourth quarter and full year 2013. This is the third quarterly report of the combined Coronado First Bank and San Diego Private Bank since the merger was completed on April 2, 2013.

Based on unaudited financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013, San Diego Private Bank reported net profit of $3,125,000, which included the effects of a fourth-quarter adjustment for one-time increase in recognition of release of deferred tax reserve and resultant increase in bargain purchase gain in an amount of $1,132,000. Without this gain, net income for the year would have been $1,993,000. Fourth quarter net profit was $2,093,000. Fourth quarter profit with the bargain purchase gain adjustment and an associated tax accrual adjustment would have been $814,000, up 79% from $456,000 for the third quarter. 

As of December 31, 2013 total assets were $324,412,000. Net loans after allowance for loan losses grew 8.6% during the fourth quarter to $229,729,000. Total deposits were $261,651,000 and Shareholder Equity grew to $48,611,000. The bank maintained very strong capital ratios, finishing the quarter with a Tier 1 Leverage Capital Ratio of 14.15% and a Total Risk Weighted Capital Ratio of 18.57%. Loan quality remained strong with a Texas Ratio of 1.64%.

Maria P. Kunac, President and Chief Executive Officer of San Diego Private Bank, stated, "We are pleased with our progress during the quarter. The growth in loans increased net interest income, we were able to grow core deposit and lower the overall cost of funds, non-interest income increased and operating expenses declined. We expect to maintain this momentum into next year."

"During the quarter all departments of the bank grew. The core banking and real estate businesses expanded, the Newport Private Bank office continued its growth and the Export/Import division established earlier in 2013 showed strength. In addition, the SBA division became the third largest SBA 7(a) loan provider in San Diego County with its Preferred Lender status."
