Friendly Hills Bancorp Reports Financial Results for the First Quarter of 2022

Whittier, California – Friendly Hills Bancorp (the “Company”) (OTC Pink: FHLB), the holding company for Friendly Hills Bank (the “Bank”), today reported consolidated results for the first quarter of 2022.  The comparability of consolidated financial information for the first quarter of 2022 to the same period of 2021 is affected by the acquisition of three branch offices from Bank of Southern California with $82 million in deposits effective September 24, 2021, after which the related operating results are also reflected in these consolidated financials.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights:

  • Total assets ended the quarter at $282 million, down $11 million from the prior quarter as a result of paying off higher cost FHLB Advances. 
  • Total loans increased 12% to $100 million as of March 31, 2022, from $89 million as of December 31, 2021.
  • Total deposits ended the quarter at $258 million, up slightly from the prior quarter, and noninterest-bearing deposits continue to reflect strong, relationship-based deposit sources at 51% of total deposits.
  • Total risk-based capital ratio was 14.7% and considered “well-capitalized”, the highest regulatory capital category.
  • Formed a specialty lending group dedicated to providing financing solutions for commercial trucks and vehicles.

For the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, the Company reported a net loss of $130,000 compared to net income of $240,000 for the comparable three months ended March 31, 2021.  “During the first quarter of 2022, we established the framework for the Company, by executing upon our strategic plan to achieve faster growth in the loan portfolio and expansion into the San Diego market to better position the company for long-term growth and success. This included the addition of a new executive leadership team, the formation of a specialty lending group, and the hiring of key positions,” said Nathan Rogge, President and Chief Executive Officer of Friendly Hills Bank.

“Looking back on the first quarter of 2022, the Company delivered solid loan growth. Our lending portfolio grew from $89 million as of December 31, 2021, to $100 million as of March 31, 2022.  The loan portfolio remains diversified with $37 million in Commercial Loans (including $26.5 million in Owner Occupied Commercial Real Estate Loans), $36.7 million in Other Commercial Real Estate Loans, and $25.9 million in Residential Real Estate Loans.
