Additionally, on an operating basis we have restructured to achieve maximum efficiencies. This includes reducing excess staff and the amount of space needed in our corporate office. Our shareholders and customers can take comfort in the knowledge that the bank far exceeds what is considered “well capitalized” according to the FDIC,” said Jeffrey Pollard, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. At September 30, 2010, the Bank’s Total Risk Based Capital Ratio was 17.84%, Tier 1 Risk Based Capital Ratio was 16.58%, and Tier 1 Leverage Ratio was 14.47%. Additionally, the Bank is pleased to announce the hiring of Larry McCurley as its Chief Credit Officer. Larry brings many years of solid lending ability and is a great addition to lead the Bank’s growth in the lending area. Excitement is also building over the highly anticipated opening of our new Downey branch. Construction should start immediately and our expectation is to be open by the end of the year.
