Min Kim, President and Chief Executive Officer:
“We are pleased to report record earnings of $9.1 million, or $0.59 per diluted common share in the fourth quarter. Our loans and deposits grew 25% and 28%, respectively, from a year ago. The loan growth has come from all our loan categories. During the fourth quarter, we have added a new Specialty Deposit Center, which focuses on servicing escrow and trust clients. The growth in our noninterest-bearing deposits during the fourth quarter, which reached a record level at 51% of total deposits, was largely attributable to the Specialty Deposit Center. Our efficiency was also significantly improved as we focused on managing expenses while growing our revenue-generating activities. The economy seems poised for continued growth over the next several quarters despite headwinds related to the Omicron variant, inflation, and supply chain bottlenecks. We remain optimistic about the future and will continue to focus on executing our strategic goals while maintaining appropriate risk and control environment.”
