PHOENIX, October 14, 2021 / PRNewswire / – MPB BHC, INC. (OTCPink: MPHX), the holding company of Metro Phoenix Bank (“Bank”), announced quarterly net earnings September 30, 2021 from $ 1,927,000, or $ 0.51 per diluted share $ 1,703,000, or $ 0.45 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2021. Net income rose 18.88% from $ 1,621,000 in the third quarter of 2020. Metro Phoenix Bank’s third quarter results reflect the positive effects of fully funded loan and leasing loss provisions (ALLL) and strong SBA lending activity.

Stephen P. Haggard, President and Chief Executive Officer of the bank said, “While net loan growth was flat in the quarter, the lending team did a very good job protecting our base income levels while our commercial loan refinancing frenzy is going on in our market. We will be on some of these win and lose some, but for now we are maintaining our pricing discipline to keep our year-to-date cumulative net interest margin above 4.00% margin compression as we have deep vertical expertise in SBA credit and Outdoor Media credit, both of which are related Lending is more inelastic on interest rate sensitivity, both of which are exposed to aggressive price competition.

“The remaining PPP loans are essentially not a factor in the bank’s loan portfolio and income statement at this point in time. We currently have less than $ 11 million on the books and we expect our PPP portfolio to be discontinued by the end of the year.

“The quality of the assets remains unchanged and the bank operates with an ALLL that has a surplus or an unallocated balance in reserves. The portfolio appears to be doing well given the recent disruptions caused by the COVID-19 delta variant, the delta surge is the fact that Arizona has remained essentially open to business during this pandemic, which has resulted in robust economic growth for most well-run and well-funded small and medium-sized businesses and commercial real estate projects; Human resource and supply chain issues appear to be the two common denominator threats affecting future operations.

“In summary, our credit pipeline is still healthy, but production needs to accommodate the growth of new credit and replace the payouts that come from interest refinancing activities and underlying home loan collateral being sold in a very cheap market for capitalization rates . Nonetheless, credit options remain plentiful as MPB is focused on the continued growth of high quality credit. ”
