PNB Financial Group Reports $64,000 Profit

December 05, 1985|JAMES S. GRANELLI

PNB Financial Group, holding company for Pacific National Bank in Newport Beach, reported a third quarter profit of $64,000, compared with a $450,000 loss last year. Consolidated earnings for PNB for the first nine months were $87,000, compared with a $360,000 loss for the first three quarters of last year.

The bank, PNB's sole asset, posted earnings that were higher than the consolidated figure because of costs PNB incurred in raising $1.1 million in additional capital in a private offering.

On its own, the bank, which opened in January, 1982, earned $125,000 during the quarter, compared with last year's quarterly loss of $441,000. The bank's profits for the first nine months were $179,000, compared with a $360,000 loss for the same period last year.

Donald L. Solsby, bank president and chief executive officer, said a shake-up in management two years ago and a change in lending philosophy and a reduction in costs since then have helped return the bank to profitability.

Total assets as of Sept. 30 for the bank and its parent were $46.4 million, a 28.3% increase over a year-earlier figure of nearly $36.2 million. The bank's ratio of capital and reserves to assets, which federal regulators use to gauge a bank's soundness, was 7.7% on Sept. 30 and has since increased to about 9%, Solsby said. Regulators require that banks maintain a 7% ratio.

Total loans on Sept. 30 were $35.7 million, a 41.2% increase over $25.3 million a year earlier, and total deposits were $42.3 million, a 30.4% increase over the year-earlier figure of nearly $32.5 million.
