The Q1 2023 consolidated financial statements showed steady growth in the company’s operations

With net interest income reaching $24.89 million, a remarkable increase from $17.79 million in Q1 2022. This boost can be attributed to various factors, including adjustments in interest rates and the successful management of the company’s loan portfolio.

In terms of assets, Southern California Bancorp reported a total of $2.29 billion as of March 31, 2023, an increase from the $2.28 billion reported as of December 31, 2022.

The net loans held for investment also experienced a slight decrease from $1.88 billion to $1.89 billion.

Deposits experienced impressive growth

With total deposits increasing from $1.93 billion to $1.99 billion, primarily driven by the increase in noninterest-bearing demand deposits and interest-bearing NOW accounts. This growth in deposits reflects the bank’s ongoing efforts to expand its customer base and cater to the financial needs of individuals and businesses in Southern California.

One of the company’s noteworthy achievements in Q1 2023 is its ability to manage credit risks effectively

The reports also showcase the bank’s focus on expanding its non-interest income streams, such as service charges on deposit accounts, interchange and ATM income, and gains on the sales of loans, among others. In Q1 2023, the company reported total non-interest income of $1.57 million, slightly lower than the $1.6 million reported in Q1 2022. However, this demonstrates a diversified approach to revenue generation, ensuring the company’s resilience in various market conditions.

Which have expanded its banking services across the region.
