Banc of California, Inc. (the “Company”) is delaying the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2016 (the “Quarterly Report”) at this time to allow for completion of a review into certain purported improper relationships and related party transactions and related matters.  The review includes an investigation by independent legal counsel having no prior relationship with the Company or its officers and directors under the direction of a Special Committee of Independent Directors, which was established by the Board of Directors on October 27, 2016.  Although the Company is unable to predict the outcome of the investigation, these matters are not currently expected to impact the Company’s reported financial condition or results of operations. The Company intends to file the Quarterly Report as soon as practicable.
The Company’s statements herein and in documents referenced herein are forward-looking statements as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and actual events may differ from those contemplated by these statements.  These statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, including the results of the Special Committee’s ongoing review and the Company’s inability to complete the work required to file the Quarterly Report in the time frame that is currently anticipated.

Total assets were $11.22 billion at September 30, 2016, an increase of $2.98 billion, or 36.2 percent, compared to $8.24 billion at December 31, 2015.
