Fort Lauderdale, FL., Dec. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OptimumBank Holdings, Inc. (OPHC-NASDAQ)

Summary of Results:

OPHC is pleased to announce the Bank’s third quarter net income of $345,000, which excludes an Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (“ALLL”) provision expense of $523,000, as the Bank has been very successful raising core deposits and reducing higher cost time deposits. The loan portfolio has increased by approximately $41.6 million so far this year. In addition, the Bank achieved greater small business loan penetration via the Small Business Administrations’ Payroll Protection Program (PPP loans).

Chairman Moishe Gubin commented, “Growth in income continues to increase as planned; and total assets now exceed $200 million. A significant increase in the size and number of commercial bank accounts has contributed to the bank’s fee income, more than quadrupling over the year due to wire and ACH fees.”

CEO Tim Terry commented, “The Bank is well received in our local area lending market for our Payroll Protection Program (PPP) lending efforts to keep small business operating in the current Covid-19 economy. Many have now made us their bank of choice.”

Multiple capital contributions have assisted this year with an increased lending activity to existing customers. Additionally, the Bank has a greater ability to engage in lending and marketing its services to many new businesses with larger borrowing requirements, as well as those seeking “Advanced Cash Management” services.
