Endeavor Bank Announces 2021 Third Quarter Financial Results
Healthy Profitability and Core (non-PPP) Loan and Deposit Growth
SAN DIEGO, Nov. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The bank continues to record healthy earnings, as well as core (non-PPP) loan and deposit growth. Forgiveness of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans and repayment of associated PPPLF borrowings over the third quarter resulted in lower total assets compared to June 30, 2021, as expected. As of September 30, 2021, the Bank's total assets equaled almost $440 million, a decline of $24 million from the $464 million reported at June 30, 2021. Total loans equaled nearly $347 million as of September 30, 2021, reflecting a decline of $17 million from the $364 million reported as of June 30, 2021. The quarterly decline in loan balances includes reductions in PPP loan balances of almost $52 million from PPP forgiveness, coupled with core (non-PPP) loan growth of $34 million during the quarter. During the same period, total deposits increased nearly $31 million from the $269 million reported at June 30, 2021, to end the third quarter at just under $300 million.
Pretax net income for the third quarter totaled $2.1 million, a $123 thousand decrease from second quarter earnings, mainly from a $360 million increase in provisions to the allowance for loan and lease losses from Q2 to Q3, prompted by robust core loan growth experienced during the quarter.

Dan Yates, CEO, said, "The amount of PPP loans Endeavor Bank made from the inception of the PPP program in April of 2020 to the end of the program in June of 2021 totaled over $304 million. So far, through the end of the third quarter of this year, $195 million of total PPP loans have been forgiven and repaid since the program began, leaving almost $109 million remaining PPP loans outstanding." Yates added, "More important to Bank earnings is the fee income the Bank recognizes upon PPP loan forgiveness. Once all loans are forgiven or repaid, participation in the PPP program will have yielded net fee income of over $10 million, a non-recurring yet permanent boost to capital."
Steve Sefton, President, stated, "As proud as the Endeavor team is of the hard work we did to extend more than 1600 PPP loans, and the assistance this provided to the San Diego business community, we are even prouder of our continued focus on our Core Mission of serving local business owner clients to drive loan and deposit growth. Masked in the balance sheet beneath the noise created by PPP, was core bank loan and deposit growth and resultant earnings. While PPP loan balances initially increased, and then contracted, core loans have steadily grown. In fact, core loan growth exceeded $111M compared to last year same quarter, an increase of 86%."
Scott Parker, Chief Credit Officer, commented, "Credit quality continues as we focus on core loan and deposit growth. Endeavor has no material loan delinquencies, no non-accrual loans, and no loan charge-offs."
