First Republic’s Deposits Drop

First Republic Bank (NYSE: FRC) plummeted by 22.13% in Monday’s after-hours trading due to poor financials stemming from the banking crisis.

Financials: First Republic Bank reported earnings of $1.23 per share in the past quarter and revenue of $1.21 billion; both were better than expected.

Details: Deposits dropped by 35.5%, down to $104.5 billion in the quarter. The bank said that deposits were $173.5 billion on March 9 before dropping to that level.

Powering the Story: First Republic’s deposits were hit due to the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and stability issues at other regional banks. On March 16, First Republic got a $30 billion rescue package from 11 major U.S. banks. This helped stabilize the business during what CFO Neal Holland called “unprecedented deposit outflows.”

Also: First Republic also said that it will reduce executive officer compensation, condense its office space, and reduce its workforce by 20%-25% in order to cut expenses.

Stock Price: Shares of First Republic are down 86% in 2023.

Final Thoughts: It is a miracle that First Republic Bank is still in business. What impact will these bad earnings have on other regional banks?
