BayCom Corp (NASDAQ:BCML), and its wholly owned subsidiary United Business Bank (the “Bank”), a Western Regional bank, today confirmed its capital and liquidity positions remain strong.
The Bank has access to approximately $1.1 billion in liquidity from numerous sources including its borrowing capacity at Federal Home Loan Bank. In addition, the Bank is eligible to receive funds under the new Bank Term Funding Program announced by the Federal Reserve today.
Founder and President, George Guarini stated, “The cornerstone of the United Business Bank’s business model is diversification: diversification of the markets we serve, diversification of the loan products we offer, diversification in our investment portfolio, diversification of the client profiles we bank and diversification of our revenue sources. BayCom employs a community bank strategy by way of gathering in-market deposits and lending to local clients and businesses in a conservative manner.”
Guarini continued, “Our total deposits have increased since year end, and our more recent deposit activities appear to be within the normal course of business.”
“The Bank's capital remains well above the regulatory threshold for well-capitalized banks, and its liquidity position remains strong. The Bank continues to process transactions and loan fundings to fully serve the needs of our clients,” concluded Guarini.
