Arlington, VA (November 10, 2010) —Today, NCB,FSB, a federally chartered savings bank committed to serving cooperatives nationwide, reported year-to-date net income of $9 million through September 30, 2010 and strong loan volume to its core cooperative customers.
As a result of the first nine months of the year’s activities, the Bank’s total risk based capital is 14.67%, solidly in excess of the 10.0% requirement for financial institutions to be considered well capitalized. Cash and investments reached $239 million.

The Bank provided more than $369 million to housing cooperatives, to help finance major capital improvements and lower existing debt obligations on the properties. In addition, NCB, FSB originated $109 million for 611 residential co-op unit owners nationwide.
As part of the Bank’s commitment to meeting the needs of underserved communities, its mission banking volume, which includes direct lending, investments and the facilitation of creative transactions, reached $242 million for the period. Capital provided supports retail small business cooperatives and its members as well as community health centers and charter schools.
