San Diego Private Bank Reports Third Quarter Earnings up 80%

CORONADO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 31, 2013) -  San Diego Private Bank (OTCQB: SDPB) today announced the bank's condition and results of operations for the third quarter 2013. This is the second 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 quarter ended September 30, 2013, San Diego Private Bank reported net income of $456,000 for the quarter, up 80% from $254,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Net interest margin for the quarter was 4.03%.

As of September 30, 2013, total assets were $325.3 million, an increase of 3.8% over the prior quarter. Total deposits were up 4.8% to $263.6 million and shareholders' equity was $46.4 million. The bank maintained very strong capital ratios, finishing the quarter with a Tier 1 Leverage Capital Ratio of 13.16% and a Total Risk Weighted Capital Ratio of 19.29%.

Maria P. Kunac, President and Chief Executive Officer of San Diego Private Bank, stated, "We experienced solid growth in loans and deposits during the quarter which, with the improved integration efficiencies of the two banks, resulted in a significant improvement in quarterly earnings. We expect to maintain this momentum through the fourth quarter."

"Checking and money market accounts have grown by 23% since the merger and the average cost of deposits declined to 0.36% in September 2013," Ms. Kunac added. "Our new loan volume has been significant and more than offset the interest rate driven refinancings we experienced.

During the quarter, the Newport Private Bank office continued its growth and the SBA division expanded its presence as a Preferred Lender. Construction lending increased, reflecting the rejuvenation of the Southern California market."
