Friday, 21. February 2020 20:53

CLINTON, N.J., Feb. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Unity Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNTY), parent company of Unity Bank, is issuing this corrected press release to revise the Common Equity Tier 1 Ratio (CET1), Tier 1 Risk Based Capital Ratio and Total Risk Based Capital ratios previously published in its year-end earnings release issued on January 21, 2020.

Subsequent to filing the original press release and following discussions with the Company's in-house legal counsel and external auditors, the Company determined our previous categorization of several loan products reported as unconditionally cancelable were no longer supported by the current language in our loan representative notes.  This determination resulted in a change in accounting estimate and the loan products were converted to their balance sheet values and risk weighted accordingly.  As a result of the conversion, the Company’s Common Equity Tier 1 ratio (CET1), Tier 1 Risk Based Capital ratio and Total Risk Based Capital ratio decreased 38bps, 41bps and 43bps to 11.59%, 12.32% and 13.06%, respectively.  The Leverage Ratio remained unchanged at 10.59%.  The ratios remain in excess of the ratios required to be deemed “well-capitalized.”
