Focus Business Bank Announces Unaudited Financial Results for the Quarter and Year Ended December 31, 2012

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- Focus Business Bank (OTCQB: FCSB) announced unaudited financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012. Net income was $391,000, or $0.14 per share, and $3,458,000, or $1.24 per share, for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively. These results included an income tax benefit of $2,174,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012 resulting from the reversal of the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets. Reversal of the valuation allowance was based on the Bank's assessment that after eleven consecutive quarters of pre-tax net income it was likely that the benefits from the deferred tax assets would be realized.

President and Chief Executive Officer Richard L. Conniff remarked, "We are proud of the continuing success of Focus Business Bank. The three months ending December 31, 2012 marked the Bank's best quarter of pre-tax income, driven by growth in loans and deposits, both of which are at all time high levels. The Bank has remained disciplined in its control of operating expenses and the management of asset quality. We believe we are ideally positioned to assist and support our target customers, closely-held businesses in our market."

Assets and Liabilities
The balance sheet of the Bank experienced solid growth in 2012:

  • Deposits increased 28% from $145.2 million at December 31, 2011 to $186.4 million at December 31, 2012. During 2012, the fastest growing deposit segment was interest-bearing demand, which grew 144% from $28.1 million to $68.8 million. Interest bearing demand is primarily composed of the Bank's specialty deposit businesses including condominium homeowner associations and non-profit corporations where it has significantly grown its local market share. The Bank considers these specialty businesses to be core deposits.

  • Loans increased 23% from $97.4 million at December 31, 2011 to $119.4 million at December 31, 2012. Growth in loans in 2012 was balanced between commercial and industrial, which grew 21% and commercial real estate, primarily first mortgages on commercial properties in Santa Clara County, which grew 24%.

  • The Bank also experienced growth in investment securities and interest bearing deposits with other banks. Investment securities and interest bearing deposits provide funds for day to day operations and secondary liquidity to manage balance sheet fluctuations. The growth in these asset classes was funded primarily by growth in deposits, partially offset by growth in loans.

Net Interest Income
Net interest income for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012 was $1,646,000 and $6,089,000, up 21% and 26%, respectively, compared to the same periods ending December 31, 2011. The increase in net interest income is attributable to the growth in interest earning assets, partially offset by a decrease in net interest margin. Net interest margin was 3.35% for the three months ended December 31, 2012 compared to 3.47% for the same three-month period in 2011. The decrease in net interest margin is attributable primarily to declines in market rates of interest and a change in the Bank's mix of earning assets as the loan to deposit ratio was 64% at December 31, 2012 compared to 67% at December 31, 2011.

Non-interest Income
Non-interest income was $421,000 and $1,159,000 for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively, compared to $137,000 and $1,027,000 for the same periods in 2011. Gains on the sale of SBA loans originated by the Bank and sold in the secondary market remain the largest component of non-interest income. The remaining balance of non-interest income is primarily related to loan servicing fees, deposit activities and changes in the cash surrender value of bank owned life insurance.

Non-Interest Expense
Non-interest expense was $1,692,000 and $5,964,000 for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively, compared to $1,268,000 and $5,211,000 for the comparable periods in 2011. The increase in non-interest expense is a result of the Bank's increase in infrastructure costs required to support our existing and planned growth in assets. The largest component of non-interest expense is related to compensation of the Bank's employees. The Bank had 27 full-time employees at December 31, 2012 compared to 24 full-time employees at December 31, 2011.

Asset Quality
The Bank made no provision for loan losses in the quarter or year ended December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011. The allowance for loan losses was 2.13% of total loans at December 31, 2012, as compared to 2.61% at December 31, 2011. There were no loan charge-offs for the quarter or year ended December 31, 2012. At December 31, 2012, the Bank had no non-performing loans and the Bank has never had other real estate owned.

Capital
Focus Business Bank has capital ratios substantially in excess of the minimum regulatory requirements for a bank to be considered well capitalized. At December 31, 2012, the total risk-based capital ratio was 18.07%. The Bank has not participated in any government sponsored capital programs, including the Troubled Asset Relief Program ("TARP") or the Small Business Lending Fund ("SBLF").

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course).

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
