Bank of Santa Clarita (BSCA) today announced that for the fourth quarter and full year of 2019, Bank earnings continue at sound levels, as net earnings for the quarter totaled $658,000, moreover, net after-tax earnings for 2019 totaled $3,217,000, reflecting a slight 1% increase over the net earnings recorded in 2018.

In reviewing operating results for 2019, the Bank reported $9,251,000 of net interest income, representing a slight 2.4% decrease from 2018. Considering the continued drop in prime interest rates over the last year this slight decrease was fully anticipated. The Bank’s continued significant overhead efficiencies led to a drop in year over year non-interest expenses of $116,000, while non-interest income increased $127,000 for 2019. Both these factors promoted the Bank’s slight improvement in net annual earnings despite the changing market conditions.

The Bank reported total net loans of $232.9 million at December 31, 2019, an increase of 1.5% over the total reported at the end of 2018.

“We are happy to report continued record year-over-year earnings growth, including a return on beginning-of-the-year equity of 9.7%,” said Frank Di Tomaso, the Bank’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are equally pleased with our asset quality, which is always a focus, and the Bank’s very strong capital position. As we move in to the new year we are just as excited about the prospect of further building upon these results. We are also grateful for the customer loyalty, diligent employee efforts and shareholder support that has allowed us to better position the Bank for sustainable future growth.”

At December 31, 2019, shareholders’ equity totaled $36.9 million and the Bank’s total capital ratio was 15.56%, significantly 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.
