Press Release

Presidio Bank Reports Loan Growth of 26% for 2015

Company Release - 2/2/2016 9:00 AM ET

Fourth Quarter Highlighted by $48 Million Loan Growth, $45 Million Deposit Growth

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Presidio Bank (OTCBB:PDOB), a Bay Area business bank, today reported unaudited results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2015 with loan growth for the year of $108 million, up 26% from 2014. The fourth quarter was highlighted by $48 million in loan growth and $45 million in deposit growth resulting in record levels in both categories. Total assets increased $40 million for the quarter and $112 million for the year. Net Income for the year totaled $2.6 million versus $3.1 million earned in 2014. The year over year comparison was adversely impacted by $600 thousand in additional interest on the Bank’s subordinated debt issued in September 2014 and by $828 thousand in additional loan loss provision expense related to the high level of loan growth in 2015.

“We are pleased to have capped a solid year with strong loan and deposit growth in the fourth quarter,” said Presidio Bank President and CEO Steve Heitel. “With a record level of earning assets, strong credit quality metrics and five established offices in key business centers in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Bank is well-positioned for 2016 and beyond.”

Financial Highlights

  • Total Loans outstanding increased by $48 million or 10.1% over the quarter ended September 30, 2015 and increased $108 million or 26.0% for the full year.
  • Total Deposits increased by $45 million or 8.4% from the quarter ended September 30, 2015 and increased by $98 million or 20.3% for 2015. As has occurred in the fourth quarter in some prior years, a number of Bank depositors were holding balances that are temporarily inflated. We expect these balances to decline to more normal levels in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Net interest income of $5.4 million in the fourth quarter was up 6% over the third quarter of 2015 as a result of loan growth. Net Interest Income was up 6.5% for the year. This growth was somewhat tempered by the previously mentioned increase in interest expense on the Bank’s Subordinated Notes that were only outstanding for one quarter in 2014. Net Interest Margin decreased year over year from 3.88% in 2014 to 3.48% in 2015. This decrease was due primarily to higher levels of lower yielding liquid assets maintained by the Bank in 2015 and the higher interest expense from the Subordinated Notes. Yield on loans decreased from 4.83% to 4.69% while cost of deposits declined from 0.18% to 0.16%. Net Interest Margin for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased to 3.48% from 3.45% in the third quarter of 2015 due to higher loan balances.
  • Operating Expenses increased 11.5% for the year primarily due to the full year impact of the San Mateo team hired in 2014, other growth related staff additions during 2015, and the full year impact of the lease expense for the San Mateo office, which commenced in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Net Income applicable to common shareholders was $2,138 thousand for the year, a decrease of 21.7% over 2014.
  • Credit quality remains strong with a classified loan to capital ratio of 6.3%. The Bank added $707 thousand to the Allowance for Loan Losses during the fourth quarter due primarily to growth in the loan portfolio. The Allowance for Loans Losses stood at 1.2% of total loans at December 31, 2015. The Allowance for Loan Losses of $6.3 million covers non-performing loans by over five times. At year end, the Bank had two Non-Performing Loans totaling an aggregate of $1.2 million.
  • Diluted earnings per common share were $0.13 for the quarter compared to $0.09 in the Third quarter of 2015 and $0.14 in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Book value per share increased to $10.51 per share as of December 31, 2015 from $10.37 per share at September 30, 2015 and $9.74 per share at December 31, 2014.

“In addition to strong loan and deposit growth in 2015, the Bank successfully raised $12 million in Common Equity, redeemed its remaining Perpetual Preferred Stock and maintained its strong asset quality,” said Presidio Bank Chairman and Founder, Jim Woolwine. “We are pleased to be celebrating our tenth year of serving Bay Area businesses, real estate professionals, not-for-profit organizations and financially sophisticated individuals.”
