Results Place California Republic Bank as one of the strongest banks in California based on its Capital, Liquidity, and Credit Quality.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., July 15, 2010 – California Republic Bank (OTCBB: CRPB) announced its results for the quarter ending June 30, 2010, reporting strong growth in assets and quarterly and year to date net profits that further underscore the successful track record of this regional Southern California based bank.

“Our asset quality and capital ratios consistently demonstrate our belief that we are one of the safest banks in California,” said Jon Wilcox, President. “Our increase in interest income this quarter validates the continued evolution of our business plan.”

Bank officials attribute the strong results to California Republic Bank’s impressive and growing roster of prestigious Southern California clients. Vice Chairman John DeCero stated, “We continue to attract very successful companies because our clients look for a bank that offers responsiveness, a relationship with senior executives, and the capacity to be opportunistic in today’s environment.”

- Total assets of $321.7 million
- Total deposits of $273.0 million
- Total loan commitments of $234.8 million and loan outstandings of $162.2 million
- Net income of $1.9 million
- Excluding non-capital charges of $137.4 thousand, the Bank added $2.1 million to capital
- No non-performing, past due or charged off loans.

2nd Quarter 2010 details

For June 30, 2010, California Republic Bank reported total assets of $321.7 million, an increase of $135.6 million, or 73% above total assets as of June 30, 2009. The year-over-year growth in total assets reflects continued core deposit growth with total deposits at $273.0 million, a $134.2 million or 97% increase from the 2nd quarter of 2009. Non-interest-bearing demand deposit accounts grew to $77.5 million, compared to $36.3 million at the end of the 2nd quarter of 2009, an increase of $41.2 million or 113%. Core interest-bearing deposits grew to $195.5 million compared to $102.6 million, or 91% growth over the same period a year ago. Total loan commitments were reported at $234.8 million as of June 30, 2010, with loan outstandings at $162.2 million, representing a $90.6 million increase or 63% from the 2nd quarter of 2009. The Bank continues to demonstrate a steady increase each quarter in its net interest income. Total net income for the 2nd quarter of 2010 was $1.9 million, which included a $2.3 million interest income gain related to a loan purchased at a discount, which was paid in full, and a $266 thousand non-capital charge plus a $270 thousand contribution to the loan loss reserve. Because California Republic Bank continues to report strong credit quality, with zero non-performing loans, no past due loans and no charged-off loans, management believes that the Bank’s allowance for loan and lease losses is more than adequate. The Bank reported a Tier 1 leverage capital ratio of 17.41%, a Tier 1 risk based capital ratio of 25.34% and a total risk based capital ratio of 26.59%, well in excess of the 5%, 6% and 10%, respectively, needed to be considered “well-capitalized” by the FDIC.
