Broadway Financial Corp. (BYFC) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2009-12-31.
Highlight of Business Operations:
As a result of the continuing recession experienced in the national economy, including the communities we serve, throughout most of 2008 and 2009, we experienced substantial increases in loan delinquencies and defaults and increased our provision for loan losses by $18.2 million during 2009 from $1.4 million for 2008 to $19.6 million for 2009. Primarily for this reason, we had a net loss of ($6.5 million) for the year 2009 compared to net earnings of $2.3 million for the year 2008. In the course of a regularly scheduled comprehensive examination of Broadway Federal by the OTS and the FDIC, which commenced in January 2010, the OTS informed us that it considers the Company and the Bank to be in troubled condition and has imposed limitations on various aspects of our operations, including among others, limitations on our growth and ability to pay dividends and on our ability to use brokered deposits to fund our operations. For the purposes of both addressing concerns raised by the OTS and providing a support for future growth in our business, we are engaged in efforts to increase our capital and improve our capital ratios, which efforts may include sales of additional common stock or other equity securities in one or more private or public transactions. Further discussions of these subjects and other important aspects of our operations and financial condition are contained in Part II, Item 7 Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
