U & I Financial Corp. (Washington)

LYNNWOOD, WA / ACCESSWIRE / July 29, 2021 / U & I Financial Corp. (OTCQX:UNIF), the holding company for UniBank, today reported record quarterly earnings of $2.2 million or $0.41 per share in the second quarter, as compared to $1.5 million or $0.26 per share for the same quarter of 2020, increasing by $787 thousand or 54.1%, primarily due to higher gain on sale of government guaranteed loans.

As of June 30, 2021, total assets reached a record, $417.1 million, increasing by $36.7 million or 9.6% from the year earlier period of $380.4 million. Net loans ended at $274.5 million, decreasing by $7.0 million or 2.5% from the year earlier period of $281.5 million, primarily due to the SBA PPP Loan forgiveness activities. However, loans held for sale increased by $12.7 million from last year, outweighing the net loans decrease. Finally, total deposits grew by $34.4 million or 11.0% to a record, $347.8 million, from the year earlier period of $313.4 million.

As of June 30, 2021, the SBA PPP loans totaled $19.1 million. During the year, a total of $34.7 million PPP loans was forgiven, of which $24.2 million was in the second quarter. New PPP loans during 2021 totaled $15.9 million, all in the first quarter.

"Despite the continued economic uncertainties, we have been fortunate to perform well," said Peter Park, President and CEO. He added that, "Net loans decreased from the prior quarter, but this is mainly due to the timing of PPP loans and our focus on originating government guaranteed loans, which are reflected in the increase in loans held for sale. With a robust pipeline, we expect the core loan portfolio to continue to grow in the near future. Furthermore, as the worst of COVID-19 appears to be behind us, we are pleased that the vast majority of our business customers have found their footings. We thank our shareholders and customers for their continued support during these uncertain times."
