Fourth Quarter 2020 Highlights

  • Net income of $11.1 million, or $ 0.56 diluted earnings per share, increased $2.6 million, or 30.8%, from the prior quarter and increased $474,000, or 4.4%, from the fourth quarter of 2019

“Royal Business Bank finished 2020 with strong fourth quarter results, concluding a challenging year that demonstrated the resilience of our differentiated business model,” said Mr. Alan Thian, Chairman, President and CEO of RBB Bancorp. “Fourth quarter earnings benefitted from an increase in our net interest margin and gains on loan sales. Higher than anticipated loan payoffs resulted in a modest reduction in our loan portfolio following the strong growth we saw in the third quarter. We anticipate returning to loan growth in the first quarter. Our asset quality remains solid and we remain well capitalized with ample access to liquidity. Loans modified under the CARES Act outstanding continue to decrease and now represent 1.8% of gross loans outstanding.”

"Our board of directors approved a quarterly dividend of $0.12 per share, as clarity on our future performance improved," Mr. Thian concluded.
