American Business Bank Announces Its Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30th 2008, Including Loan Growth of 20%, Deposit Growth of 14% and $1,447,000 in Earnings, an Increase of 7% over the Same Period in 2007

LOS ANGELES, Oct 07, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- AMERICAN BUSINESS BANK (Bank) (OTCBB:AMBZ) today reported net income of $1,447,000 for the third quarter 2008, a 7% increase from the $1,348,000 earned in the third quarter of 2007, and 9% higher than the results reported for the second quarter this year. Earnings per share (EPS) in the third quarter 2008 were $0.41 remaining at the same level as the third quarter of 2007. Shares outstanding at the end of the quarter averaged 3,573,881.
"Even though the economy is going through a painful deleveraging process, our bank remains focused on maintaining its strong balance sheet. We continue to build on a loan portfolio that has zero past due thirty day loans, no net charge offs and no REO. More than sixty percent of our bond portfolio consists of U.S. government full faith and credit securities with the remainder of bonds primarily invested in high grade municipal securities," said Robert Schack, Chairman of the Bank.

Don Johnson, President and CEO, added, "In spite of the current credit crisis, our loans grew by twenty percent in the third quarter and our deposits were up fourteen percent, primarily due to new business development results. We continue to be successful in attracting excellent middle market customers to our bank and to provide the service that they expect and deserve, including when it involves new credit facilities."

Assets and Liabilities

Total assets increased 19% or $114 million to $702 million at September 30, 2008, as compared to $588 million at September 30, 2007. Net Loans increased 20% or $52 million to $312 million. Funding the asset growth was a 14%, or $75 million, increase in deposits.

Interest Income

During the third quarter, Net Interest Income increased $483,000 due to a larger asset base overcoming some margin compression as the yield on earning assets was affected by the reduction in general interest rates.

Non-interest Income

Non-interest Income in the third quarter of 2008 increased to $571,000 from $250,000 in the third quarter of 2007. The difference between the two periods was mainly due to gains taken on securities sold.

Credit Quality

Asset quality at quarter-end remains excellent, with zero non-performing loans, no REO and no charge offs. At quarter-end, the allowance for loan losses stood at $3,999,000 or 1.26% of loans, a level that is higher than our peer group average.
