TACOMA, WA/ACCESSWIRE/August 5, 2022/ Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQX: CBWA) reported quarterly net income of $1.1 million, or $0.27 earnings per share, for the quarter ending June 30, 2022, compared with a loss of $62,000. dollars for the second quarter of 2021, which was the result of a large provision for loan and lease losses (ALLL). Total assets were $552 million as of June 30, 2022, compared to $562 million, including $60 million in PPP loans, a year earlier.

The asset mix improved in the second quarter as excess overnight funds were deployed to support loan growth of $44 million. Loan growth in the second quarter was 13% over the first quarter. 1% PPP loan forgiveness was more than $59 million from a year ago and more than $4 million from the first quarter. The loan portfolio remained well diversified at 73% commercial real estate, 23% commercial and 4% consumer and other.

Quarter-end deposit balances were consistent; however, the mix has improved, favoring relationship deposits and a reduction in more expensive term deposits. Demand deposits increased by 9% compared to the previous year, while term deposits decreased by 46%. Total deposits remained stable at $500 million compared to the first quarter of 2022.

Other comprehensive income, a component of shareholders’ equity, was affected by the rise in interest rates affecting the market value of securities. No reduction in value exists within the securities portfolio. The share buyback program implemented in November 2021 was finalized in the second quarter and another was announced on June 15, 2022; the third plan issued globally for the bank holding company.

Interest rate hikes implemented by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), primarily in the second quarter, had a positive impact on interest income. Interest expense decreased due to an improvement in the balance of term deposits on transactional accounts. The ALLL remained adequate at 1.21%; therefore, no provision charge was recorded in the first half of 2022. Continued loan growth will impact the level of the provision.

Non-performing assets to total assets were 0.72%, and the Bank’s Texas ratio, a measure of problem loans and bank-owned properties to capital, ended at 4.7. %. Capital levels remained above regulatory capital requirements.

“The Bank was well positioned for the interest rate increases implemented by the FOMC, and we continue to closely monitor the deposit rate environment. Thanks to the hard work of our bankers, we achieved substantial growth lending during the quarter while improving our deposit rate. Both of these factors contributed to an improved net interest margin as we redeployed our excess cash from overnight funds into higher yielding loans.” , said John Manolides, President and CEO..
