SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/11/14 -- Bridge Capital Holdings (NASDAQ: BBNK), whose subsidiary is Bridge Bank, a full-service professional business bank headquartered in Silicon Valley and with offices located nationwide, announced today that it has been designated a "Super Premier" performing bank by The Findley Reports for the seventh time. The Findley Reports, a highly regarded consulting and reporting firm for the financial industry, has been recognizing the performance of California banking institutions for over 40 years.
Every year, The Findley Reports recognizes certain high performing banks as "Super Premier", "Premier", and "Commendable" based upon their operating results. Out of 129 banks recognized in 2013, Bridge Bank is one of only 60 performers to be recognized as "Super Premier." Banks are rated on four basic components: growth, return on beginning equity, net operating income as a percentage of average assets, and loan losses as a percentage of gross loans.
"We're pleased to recognize Bridge Bank for their "Super Premier" performance for 2013," said Gary Steven Findley, editor of The Findley Reports. "This achievement, in addition to their recognition as one of 11 "Exceptional" banks we recognized in 2013, further validates the consistency we have seen in their strong performance," he added.
"To be recognized as a "Super Premier" performing bank by The Findley Reports for the seventh time is yet another indication of our collective ability to execute on our strategic plan, and in a variety of economic circumstances," said Daniel P. Myers, president and chief executive officer of Bridge Bank and Bridge Capital Holdings. "We continually strive to add value to our clients' businesses by offering them the solutions they need to thrive in today's ever changing business environment, and owe our success to the personal investment of our bankers in that mission," he added.
