July 31, 2018

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 30, 2018--CalWest Bancorp (OTCBB: CALW), the holding company for CalWest Bank (formerly known as South County Bank), today announced the consolidated financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Significant items for the period include:

Net Income was $499,000 for the quarter, a sequential 15% increase; YTD Net Income was $933,000, a 37% year-over-year increase Net Interest Income was $1.72 million for the quarter, a sequential 12% improvement; YTD Net Interest Income was $3.26 million, a 26% year-over-year increase Total Deposits decreased $9.3 million during the quarter, however YTD Deposits have increased $7.3 million and year-over-year Deposits have increased $3.1 million 42% of Deposits are non-interest bearingCost-of Funds steady at 0.50% Total Loans increased $5.0 million during the quarter and $20.9 million year-over-year Non-performing Assets fell to $29,398 and all are paying-as-agreedAllowance for Loan Losses to Gross Loans ratio at 1.86%

“Although loan growth picked up in May and June, loan pay-offs, predominantly of non-performing loans, resulted in a YTD increase of only 1.2%,” noted Glenn Gray, President and CEO of CalWest Bancorp and CalWest Bank. “With recent additions to our front-line staff, and fewer projected pay-offs, we expect net loan growth for the second half of the year to put us back on-track.”

“The composition of our Deposits has purposely been in transition. Year-over-year, ‘core’ deposits have increased by $15 million while institutional and brokered deposits have been reduced by $12 million. This improved composition has allowed us to maintain our cost-of deposits at 0.50%. We anticipate the new staff we recently added, and the relocation of our Irvine Branch, will generate incremental core deposits.”

The Bank serves the business community through its four branches located in Rancho Santa Margarita, Irvine, Huntington Beach and Redlands.
