SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / July 16, 2020 /Seacoast Commerce Banc Holdings (OTC PINK:SCBH) ("Company"), the holding company of Seacoast Commerce Bank ("Bank"), today reported unaudited consolidated net income for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020, of $3.7 million, versus 2019 second quarter unaudited consolidated net income of $3.6 million, a 3.2% increase. On a per share basis, net income increased 2.5% to $0.38 per share versus $0.37 per share. Additionally, the Company reported second quarter return on average tangible common equity (ROATCE) and return on average assets (ROAA) of 15.09% and 1.21% respectively, compared to 16.41% and 1.30% for the second quarter of 2019.

Richard M. Sanborn, President & Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The whole Seacoast team feels very good about our second quarter results given the unprecedented impact on businesses as a result of the worldwide pandemic. The Covid-19 crisis caused many significant challenges which severely disrupted our normal business operations, with the significant national shut down of businesses, the work from home mandates, coupled with the Federal Reserve Bank's rate cut of 150 basis points and rapid launch of the SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan program. With most everyone's lives on hold, virtually all lending stopped at the end of March. With the Federal Reserve Bank's rate cut, the interest income we receive on our variable rate loan portfolio dropped by over $800 thousand a month. With the launch of the PPP loan program, we ceased our traditional SBA lending to focus our whole team on PPP loans. Collectively, these actions could have been devastating to our financial results; however, our whole team rallied and found important ways to contribute. While traditional lending stopped in April, we funded $92.5 million in PPP loans. Remarkably, with the re-start of our normal lending in May, we funded $61.8 million in SBA loans in two months, vs $68.8 million in three months in 2019. The commercial lending side had similar results with $39.0 million in new commercial loans funded in just two months of the second quarter of 2020, vs $7.2 million in commercial loans funded over three months in 2019. On the income and expense side, while we did lose over $2.0 million in expected interest income due to the interest rate cut, we were successful in reducing our funding costs by $727 thousand, and reduced our non-interest expenses by over $1 million, versus the second quarter of 2019. This full team effort allowed us to still earn over a 15% ROATCE, with less than budgeted loans sales, while increasing our reserves for potential loan losses by $325 thousand. All things considered; this was a remarkable quarter."

Allan W. Arendsee, Chairman of the Board, stated, "The board of directors recognize the unimaginable events that have transpired over the last few months, and the incredible effort put forth by the whole Seacoast Team to ensure our clients received much needed loan deferrals and PPP loans to give them time to recover during the pandemic, while also ensuring our clients, our employees, and our community were safe. These last few months have shown the resolve of our staff, and the financial benefits of our business model, as everyone continues to focus on doing what is right, what is safe, and what is sound."
