CHICO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Golden Valley Bank (OTC Markets: GVYB), headquartered in Chico, California today reported third quarter 2020 net profit of $965,834, and year to date net profit of $3,112,03, compared to $1,697,177 and $3,188,137, respectively for the same periods in 2019. The quarter over quarter variance is from the gain on the sale of securities in the third quarter of 2019.

Third Quarter 2020 financial highlights compared to the third quarter of 2019 include:

  • Assets up $69.3 million to $413.3 million, or 20.2%
  • Loans up $106.4 million to $277.6 million, or 62.1%
  • Deposits up $60.4 million to $365 million, or 19.8%

“The year over year increases are primarily due to funding over $95 million in Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Plan loans to assist businesses through the shutdown,” said Mark Francis, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Helping our communities is what community banking is all about. Sadly, neighboring towns have once again been devastated by wildfires. Through our Foundation, we are supporting local nonprofits that are able to provide immediate needs to the survivors. In addition, with a $250,000 grant from the Bank to the Foundation, we are helping several local nonprofit organizations that are struggling to meet their fundraising goals due to COVID-19,” added Francis.

Asset quality continues to be excellent as only .03% of total assets are considered to be non-performing. By comparison, the average was .85% of total assets for the Bank’s national peer group, based on data provided as of June 30, 2020 (the most recent data available). The company has set aside $3.3 million in loan loss reserves to protect it from future economic uncertainties. Golden Valley continues to be a well-capitalized bank and far exceeds minimum regulatory requirements. More complete financial information can be viewed on the Bank’s website.
