GILROY, Calif., Oct. 29, 2020 /PRESSDAILY.COM/ — Pinnacle Bank (OTCQX:PBNK), headquartered in Gilroy, California, announced today unaudited net income for the three months ended September 30, 2020 of $1,348,000 compared to $1,340,000 in the same period in 2019. 

As of September 30, 2020, total assets were $624.9 million, a 56% increase from the $399.3 million at September 30, 2019.

Gross loans were $502.1 million at September 30, 2020, an increase of $173.1 million (53%) from the September 30, 2019 balance of $329.1 million.  Gross Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans at September 30, 2020 were $125.6 million.  Excluding the PPP loans, gross loans increased $47.5 million or 14%. The allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2020 was $5.885 million or 1.19% of loans (1.60% of loans excluding the PPP loans), compared to $3.900 million or 1.21% of loans at September 30, 2019.  Nonperforming assets totaled $50,000 (0.01% of assets) at September 30, 2020 compared to $56,000 at June 30, 2020 and $886,000 at September 30, 2019. 

Total deposits at September 30, 2020 increased to $548.8 million from $341.5 million at September 30, 2019, a 61% increase. Contributing to the growth in deposits were the proceeds from PPP loans, new clients and existing clients increasing deposit account balances.

Public health orders to limit the pandemic have caused significant changes in economic conditions that may affect our borrowers’ ability to repay their loans. The provisions for loan losses in the three quarters of 2020 incorporate estimates of the changes in macro-economic conditions.  Certain traditional measures of credit risk do not yet show weakened loan performance as delinquent and classified loans at September 30, 2020 were both below September 30, 2019 levels. As of September 30, 2020, payment deferrals, generally for three months, were in place for 14 loans totaling $24.5 million compared to 94 loans totaling $114 million at June 30, 2020.

“Businesses in our communities continue to see growth opportunities during the pandemic.  Loan growth excluding PPP loans of $47.5 million or 14% in the last year, including $18.2 million during the third quarter, reflects the region’s economic strength and resiliency and the success of our relationship-based approach combined with our experienced bankers,” stated Jeffrey Payne, President and CEO. “Our Silicon Valley office is expected to open in Q4 and we look forward to serving new clients from that location,” stated Mr. Payne. “We are honored to contribute to the success of our communities by providing premier business banking from Salinas Valley to Silicon Valley.  I sincerely appreciate the continued efforts and contributions of our outstanding team of professional bankers, our committed directors and advisors and our many loyal clients.”

The Bank’s capital position remains above regulatory guidelines for well capitalized banks. At September 30, 2020, the Bank had a total capital ratio of 14.76%.  Book value per share at September 30, 2020 was $10.81.  Net interest margin in the third quarter of 2020 was 3.42% compared to 5.42% for the same period in 2019.
