PCB Bancorp is Eligible to Participate in the Emergency Capital Investment Program

December 16, 2021 GMT


On December 14, 2021, the U.S. Department of Treasury (the “Treasury”) informed PCB Bancorp, a California corporation (the “Company”), the holding company of Pacific City Bank (the “Bank”), that the Treasury has reviewed the Company’s application to receive a capital investment from the Treasury under the Emergency Capital Investment Program (“ECIP”), and that the Company would be eligible to receive an ECIP investment in an amount up to $69,141,000 in the form of in non-dilutive Tier 1 senior perpetual preferred capital. The Company has not yet determined whether it will accept the offer to receive the ECIP investment.

If the Company moves forward with pursuing the ECIP investment from the Treasury, the Company would be required to fulfill certain conditions established by the Treasury and would be subject to certain restrictions following its acceptance of the investment.


Established by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, the ECIP was created to encourage low- and moderate-income community financial institutions and minority depository institutions such as the Bank to augment their efforts to support small businesses and consumers in their communities.
