Hanmi Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:HAFC) (“Hanmi”), the holding company for Hanmi Bank (the “Bank”), today announced that the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (the “FRB”) has informed Hanmi and the Bank that the Written Agreement entered into between Hanmi, the Bank and the FRB on November 2, 2009 (the “Written Agreement”) has been terminated, effective December 4, 2012.
