Broadway Financial Corporation Sells $13.1 Million Of Non-Performing Loans

Broadway Financial Corporation (the “Company”) (NASDAQ Capital Market: BYFC) today reported that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Broadway Federal Bank, f.s.b. (the “Bank”), recently completed the sale of approximately $16 million principal amount of loans, including $13.1 million of non-performing loans. The non-performing loans represented approximately 31% of the Bank’s estimated non-performing loans receivable and non-performing loans held for sale as of December 31, 2012.

The sales were made in cash transactions with two different buyers: a sale of approximately $14.1 million of single family residential loans, including approximately $11.8 million of non-performing single family residential loans representing substantially all of the Bank’s non-performing single family residential loans, and a separate sale of five church loans with an aggregate principal balance of approximately $1.8 million, including four non-performing church loans with an aggregate principal balance of $1.3 million.

The Company does not expect to take any material charge against net income because of the sale of these loans.

Chief Executive Officer, Wayne-Kent Bradshaw, stated, “These sales represent a substantial reduction in our non-performing loans, which will significantly reduce the time and resources that we devote to managing and monitoring non-performing loans. Furthermore, the sales will allow us to re-focus our efforts on improving operations, pursuing growth as permitted under our Cease and Desist Orders, and completing our previously announced Recapitalization. In addition, we believe that these sales represent a major step in addressing regulatory requirements for materially reducing our non-performing loans. With the sales completed, our non-performing loans have been reduced to approximately $23 million, or 6.4% of total estimated assets, after adjusting for the sales, as of December 31, 2012.”

Additional information regarding the loan sales will be made available in the Company’s Form 10-K for 2012, which the Company expects to file in late March.
