The week started off with a number of companies coming into focus for a variety of reasons, and one of those was the Malaga Bank FSB parent company, Malaga Financial Corporation (OTC:MLGF).

That worked out to a rise of 2% from the net income of $5,875,000 that had been generated in the prior-year period.

Malaga Financial Corporation did not have any foreclosed real estate or delinquent loans in its books in the first quarter, and the allowances for credit losses stood at $388,1000, or 0.31% of all loans, as of March 31, 2024. The net interest income earned by the company came in at $11,173,000, but that reflected a drop of $600,000, or 5%, from the net interest income in the first quarter of 2023. The operating expenses for the first quarter went up by 2% to reach $3,540,000. In the prior-year period, the operating expenses had been $3,487,000.

The President and Chief Executive Officer of the company, Randy C. Bowers, spoke about the development as well.
