News Highlights

PALOS VERDES ESTATES, Calif., April 16, 2021 (News) — Malaga Financial Corporation “Company” (OTCPink:MLGF), the parent company of Malaga Bank FSB, today reported that net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $4,716,000 ($0.61 basic and fully diluted earnings per share), an increase of $532,000 or 13% from net income of $4,184,000 ($0.54 basic and fully diluted earnings per share) for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. For the first quarter of 2021, the Company’s annualized return on average equity was 11.90% and the annualized return on average assets was 1.43%, as compared to 11.39% and 1.34%, respectively, for the same period in 2020.

The Company did not have any delinquent loans or foreclosed real estate owned at March 31, 2021. The Company’s allowance for loan losses was $3,686,000, or 0.31% of total loans, at March 31, 2021.

Net interest income totaled $9,604,000 in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of $789,000 or 9% from the first quarter of 2020. This increase was due primarily to an increase in excess interest-earning assets over interest-bearing liabilities of $13 million, and an increase of 0.12% in the interest rate spread to 2.90%. The increase in the interest rate spread is primarily attributable to a decrease of 0.42% in the average cost of funds offset by a 0.30% decrease in the yield on average interest-earning assets.

In the first quarter of 2021, operating expenses increased 3% to $3,132,000 from $3,034,000 in the first quarter of 2020. The increase is primarily attributed to increases in compensation of $68,000 and data processing of $21,000.

Randy C. Bowers, Chairman, President and CEO, commented, “The dedicated efforts of our staff in serving our clients under extremely challenging circumstances continues to produce excellent financial results. We are pleased to report a significant increase in earnings for the 1st Quarter 2021 compared with the same period in the prior year. We look forward to continued improvement in the economy and the results of efforts to reduce the effect of the pandemic over the remainder of 2021. We are optimistic about the future and look forward to better days ahead.”

Malaga’s total assets increased by 6% to $1.332 billion at March 31, 2021 compared to $1.251 billion at March 31, 2020. The loan portfolio at March 31, 2021 was $1.202 billion, an increase of $44 million or 4% from March 31, 2020. Malaga originates loans principally for its own portfolio and not for sale.

Malaga funds its assets with a mix of retail deposits, wholesale deposits and FHLB borrowings. Retail deposits totaled $746 million as of March 31, 2021, a $94 million increase from $652 million at March 31, 2020. Wholesale deposits, comprised mainly of State of California certificates of deposit and brokered deposits, totaled $127 million as of March 31, 2021, a $12 million decrease from $139 million at March 31, 2020.
