Bank of Santa Clarita logoBank of Santa Clarita has achieved a record level of earnings during the first half of 2017, reporting net earnings of $909,000, an improvement of more than 40 percent over the bank’s earnings during the first half of 2016, and the largest first-half net earnings in the bank’s history.

The bank reported that total loans grew to $215.2 million during the first half of 2017, and continues to have excellent credit quality in its loan portfolio, as it had no nonaccrual loans at June 30, 2017. In reviewing first half 2017 earnings, the bank reported a year over year growth in net interest income of 4%, as well as improvements in both noninterest income and noninterest expenses.

“At the mid-point of 2017, our results demonstrate an upward trend of loan growth, improved operating efficiency and strong earnings. Additionally, the Bank’s asset quality metrics continue to be strong, as evidenced by the bank having no nonaccrual loans at quarter end,” said Frank D. Di Tomaso, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “What is particularly notable about this year’s operating performance is our earnings, which are up 40% from the same period last year.”

At June 30, 2017, shareholders’ equity totaled $28.2 million and the Bank’s total capital ratio was 12.77%, exceeding the “well capitalized” level prescribed in the applicable capital regulations. The bank also continues to maintain substantial liquidity positions, retaining significant balances of liquidity on its balance sheet as well as readily available collateralized borrowings and other potential sources of liquidity.

Founded in October 2004, Bank of Santa Clarita is the only full-service commercial bank headquartered in the Santa Clarita Valley and is focused on the needs of the community and its businesses.
