Manufacturers Bank Reports 2021 First Half Earnings

September 1, 2021 GMT

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 1, 2021--

Manufacturers Bank (the Bank) is a Los Angeles based commercial bank with total assets of $3.78 billion as of June 30, 2021. The Bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SMBC Americas Holdings, Inc. (SMBCAH), a United States (U.S.) bank holding company, who in turn is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC).

The Bank reported net income for the six months ended June 30, 2021 of $4.5 million, a decrease of $6.9 million, or 60.3%, compared to $11.4 million for the same period in 2020. The Bank’s asset sensitive balance sheet continued to be impacted by the persistent low interest rate environment.

During the first half of 2021, as the economy started to emerge from the economic lockdown brought on by the pandemic in conjunction with business customers benefitting from the second round of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the Bank maintained sound credit quality. Credit quality is reflected in the percentage of non-accrual loans to total loans at 0.08% as of June 30, 2021. The allowance for credit loss ratio was solid at 1.83% as of June 30, 2021.
