SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 16, 2019 / Seacoast Commerce Banc Holdings (OTCPK:SCBH) ("Company"), the holding company of Seacoast Commerce Bank ("Bank"), today reported unaudited consolidated net income for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019, of $3.7 million versus 2018 third quarter unaudited consolidated net income of $3.5 million, a 6.1% increase. On a per share basis, net income increased 5.3% to $0.38 per share versus $0.35 per share in 2018. Additionally, the Company reported third quarter return on average tangible common equity (ROATCE) of 16.17% and return on average assets (ROAA) of 1.33%, compared to 17.81% and 1.46% for the third quarter of 2018 respectively.

Richard M. Sanborn, President & Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The third quarter of 2019 was a continuation of our past consistent results with strong financial metrics across all our business lines. Our 2019 plan called for the expansion of our SBA loan production team and our specialty deposit team, with branch expansion into Nevada, which is all well underway. So far this year we have added one deposit and three SBA business development offices, and our Las Vegas branch is fully licensed to operate with an expected mid-November opening date. As previously mentioned, we had a significant inflow of 1031 deposits at the end of the second quarter, which we expected to run off in the third quarter. As a result, third quarter 1031 deposits decreased $137.8 million, which was offset by growth in other specialty deposits of $56.6 million. This transition goes along with our plan of focusing on property-management company deposits, which characteristically are more stable and lower cost. Our unique banking model of focusing on specialty lending and deposit platforms continues to be strong financially, and a compelling model that is allowing us to continually post superior financial results."

Allan W. Arendsee, Chairman of the Board, stated, "The Board of Directors is pleased with the Company's third quarter performance and our expectations for the remainder of the year. While we realize there are headwinds in the economy, we believe in our plan, which provides tremendous operating flexibility. Our balance sheet is strong as is our capital position and our income producing capabilities. As always, the Board of Directors believes that the right plan is in place to continue providing shareholders with an exceptional return on their investment over the long-term."
