Successful Acquisition Drives Higher-than-Expected Earnings

October 23, 2013 — Puget Sound Bank (OTCQB: PUGB) today reported net income of $601,533 or $.20 per share for the third quarter ending September 30, 2013 as compared to $529,649 or $.21 per share in the third quarter of 2012. Net income for the current quarter would have been approximately $733,000 or $0.24 per share before one-time costs resulting from Puget Sound Bank’s acquisition of Core Business Bank, completed June 14, 2013.

Net income for the first nine months of 2013 increased to $1.611 million from $1.573 million in the year-earlier period. Without one-time acquisition costs net income for the current nine-months would have been $2.0 million.

“This quarter – the first full quarter with Core Business Bank contributing to our operations – has been particularly strong for the Bank, said Jim Mitchell, Puget Sound Bank chief executive officer and president. “Our credit quality and performance ratios have exceeded our expectations to support our long-term strategy.”
