  • 2015년 6월 29일 한미은행, 새로운 브랜드 로고 공개

    한미은행, 새로운 브랜드 로고 공개



    한미은행(행장 금종국)이 오늘 오전 10시, 1982년 은행 설립시 본점이었던 올림픽-크렌셔 지점에서 현판식 및 새로고 공개 행사를 가졌다. 행사에는Herb J. Wesson 로스엔젤레스 시의장, 제임스 안 한인회장, 로렌스 한 상공회의소 회장 등 단체장과 한인언론, 한미은행 고객과 은행 관계자 등 약70여명이 참석하여 새로운 로고의 탄생을 축하하였다.

    한미은행의 금종국 행장은 “33년전 한인 동포들의 순수 한인자본으로 창립된 한미은행은 그동안 미국으로 이주한 한인 이민자들이 경제적 성공을 통해 아메리칸 드림을 이룰 수 있도록  많은 노력을 아끼지 않았다. 한미의 새 로고는 그러한 한미의 창립 이념과 고객들의 염원을 바탕으로 고안되었다. 새로운 로고는 한미가 미국 전역의 한인동포 뿐만 아니라, 더욱 다양한 인종 및 가주를 넘어서 전미주 고객들과 소통하는 데에 큰 가교역할을 할 것이다.”라고 새로고 제작의 의의를 전했다.

    한미은행의 기존 로고가 한미의 첫글자인 “ㅎ (히읗)”에 기초한 것이었다면, 새로운 로고는 영어 알파벳의 “H”를 바탕으로 한 것으로 좀 더 넓은 고객층에게 어필할 것으로 기대된다. 한미은행의 새 로고는 첫째로 두 개의 대륙을 잇는 다리에서 착안한 것으로 고객의 현재와 성공한 미래를 ‘연결(Connect)’한다는 의미를 갖으며, 둘째로 높은 산으로 형상화된 더 높은 공동의 목표를 향해 서로 손을 잡고 ‘협력(Partnership)’하는 것을 상징한다. 마지막으로 새로고는 나날이 높이 솟은 한미은행 고객들의 경제적 ‘발전(Growth)’을 의미한다.

    한미은행은 이미 캘리포니아에 위치한 모든 지점에 임시 간판 설치를 완료하고 오늘 새 로고를 기념하는 의미에서 가주 모든 지점에서 떡과 음료, 다양한 사은품 등을 준비해 지점을 방문한 고객들에게 제공하였다.

    한미은행은 또한 새로운 로고를 기념하는 광고 캠페인을 7월부터 전 지역에 걸쳐 런칭하고, 미주 전지역 지점에 정식 간판 설치를 시작할 계획이다.

    Hanmi Reports 2014 Full-Year Financial Results





    Full-Year Net Income of $49.8 Million, Up 24.8% Year-Over-Year
    Loan Portfolio Increases to $2.74 Billion, Up 25.7% Year-Over-Year
    Integration of Central Bancorp, Inc. Remains On Track

    LOS ANGELES – February 5, 2015 – Hanmi Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: HAFC, or “Hanmi”), the holding company for Hanmi Bank (the “Bank”), today reported solid growth in 2014.  For the full year 2014, net income increased 24.8% to $49.8 million, or $1.56 per diluted share, compared to $39.9 million, or $1.26 per diluted share a year ago.  In 2014, pretax income from continuing operations grew 16.1% to $72.6 million from $62.5 million in 2013.

    Hanmi’s acquisition of Central Bancorp, Inc. (“CBI”), the parent company of United Central Bank, was completed on August 31, 2014. The combined companies began operating as Hanmi Financial Corporation and Hanmi Bank, respectively, with banking operations conducted under the Hanmi Bank brand effective as of September 1, 2014. The 2014 financial results reflect eight months of stand-alone operations of Hanmi and four months of combined operations.  Hanmi’s accounting for this business combination is incomplete and has been recorded based on provisional amounts.  The accounting is updated during the measurement period to reflect new information obtained about facts and circumstances that existed at the acquisition date.  Adjustments to the provisional amounts during the measurement period are recognized as retrospective adjustments as of the date of the acquisition.  During the fourth quarter Hanmi identified a retrospective adjustment of $8.0 million to the bargain purchase gain that was provisionally reported for the third quarter of 2014.  This retrospective adjustment revises the reported third quarter net income to $21.2 million from $13.3 million as previously reported.

    Fourth quarter 2014 net income totaled $6.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared $21.2 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014 and $9.9 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter a year ago.

    Full year financial results reflect the impact of the following significant items recorded in conjunction with the CBI acquisition:
    • $14.6 million provisional bargain purchase gain recorded in 2014
    • $6.6 million in merger and integration related expenses in 2014
    • $7.6 million in professional fees for the year, which included significant costs to strengthen our infrastructure and to meet heightened control standards

    Mr. C. G. Kum, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “2014 was a transformative year for Hanmi highlighted by the acquisition of CBI, strong loan growth and solid credit quality to help continue the growth trajectory across our enterprise. Full year profitability increased sharply with net income of $49.8 million, up 24.8% from 2013.  Strong organic loan production from the legacy Hanmi team helped expand our loan portfolio by 25.7% to $2.74 billion at year end.  Credit quality improved throughout the year with classified loans, excluding PCI loans, declining 42.0% during the year to $47.7 million, or 1.71% of gross loans at year end. Importantly, our activities to integrate the acquisition of CBI into Hanmi are proceeding as planned.”
