Pinnacle Bank Orange City Florida

Take a look at the new site

These jokers lost $5,500,000 in Q4 2011, wiping out 63% of the remaining equity

Wow, these fat cats took $4.4MM of your money, which they haven’t even bothered to pay interest on since 5/10

It is good that they have time to play golf on the tax payers money

That cat on the left isn’t missing any meals thanks to TAARP, that stomach is all bought and paid for thanks to  the tax payer

These boys are down in the trenches or maybe bunkers

Using tax payer money to sponsor golf tournaments, who is better than these bankers, and they are bankrupt.

Do you think that clown in the middle has done any hazardous commercial real estate lending?

These boys are on the problem bank list and living large.

This is David Bridgeman, David stole $4,400,00 of the tax payers money

David has not even paid interest on your money since 5/10

This fat cat bankster is on the problem bank list for hazardous commercial lending

This clown is going bald but he can grown pubic hair on his face.

Pinnacle Bank Orange City Florida was founded in 1999.  The company took $4.4MM in tax payer funded bailout money, which they won’t pay back.  Then again, they haven’t even paid interest on it since 5/10.  They are also on the problem bank list for hazardous commercial real estate lending. The Texas ratio is 73%.

Assets are $205MM and supposed equity is $13MM.

The actual equity is $8.6MM, as the $4.4MM in taxpayer funding they stole, is debt not preferred stock.

The problem loan portfolio is $17MM.

With $17MM in problem loans and $8.6MM in equity, this place is bankrupt.

How are they going to pay the tax payer back the $4.4MM?  They can’t even pay the interest.

David Bridgeman owes you $4,000,000, he won’t even pay you interest

David does have time to play golf

David Bridgeman is the CEO.

This guy stole tax payer money, can’t pay it back and ran this place into the ground. Pinnacle?

Check out the website, here is a quote from David Bridgeman, “they wanted somebody who’s a real banker, down in the trenches, who has recently been examined by the FDIC”.

David, the FDIC examined you and put you on the problem bank list.

David, where is the $4.4MM you owe the tax payer, how about at least paying the interest.

Do you have money in this debacle.

They are the Pinnacle, of making bad loans.

Mr. Bridgeman (local community banker) goes to Washington
David Bridgeman doesn’t need to watch television or read reports to understand the devastation the recession is causing on Main Street.The Orange City community banker witnesses those effects daily —sometimes even in his own office.The CEO of Pinnacle Bank recalls a local small business owner recently breaking down in tears in front of him while explaining how his company’s financial situation hadbecome so dire he was forced to lay off several longtime employees.It’s a story that Bridgeman has beenhearing from far too many area businesses these days. Several have closed in recent months, including the West Volusia Chamber of Commerce.The increasing need to provide loans to small businesses prompted Pinnacle last year to become the first community bank based in the Volusia-Flagler area to receive Troubled Asset Relief Program funds from the federal government.The nearly $4.4 million Pinnacle received from the TARP Capital Purchase Program should not be confused with the bailouts thefeds have been doling out to the so-called too-big-to-fail Wall Street firms and national banks.To qualify for TARP funds, community banks, unlike the banking giants, must prove they are financially sound.

Pinnacle, in both November and December, was ranked by the U.S. Small Business Administration as the No. 2 SBA lender in the North Florida district, which includes Volusia and Flagler counties, in terms of dollar amount.But “unduly harsh” restrictions placed by federal regulators, including requiring community banks to have higher than reasonable or necessary risk-weighted capital ratios, are making it increasingly difficult, if not impossible, for banks to continue issuing loans to small businesses, says Bridgeman.
If President Obama and Congress are serious about wanting to encourage banks to give Main Street businesses a helping hand, they need to ease restrictions on community banks, says Bridgeman. Making federal funds available to community banks is good and fine, but of no use if those funds come with too many strings attached, he says.On Feb. 11,  (February 26th at 10:00 a.m) Bridgeman will get a chance to tell members of Congress.Thanks to a recommendation from Congressman John Mica (R-Winter Park), Bridgeman recently received an invitation from the office of U.S. Rep. Barney Frank to testify before a joint-meeting of the House financial services and small business committees in Washington, D.C.“They wanted somebody who is a real banker down in the trenches that’s been recently examined by the FDIC … someone in banking where the rubber meets the road,” Bridgeman explains.They certainly found a person who fits that bill in Bridgeman.
 Wonder if Conressman John Mica plays golf?Mica: Florida Community Banker Makes Plea to CongressWashington, Feb 26 -Washington, .C. — At the request of Congressman John L. Mica (FL-07), community bank President David Bridgeman of Pinnacle Bank in Orange City testified before a joint Congressional Panel on the plight of local banks.  Bridgeman is the only witness in a three panel Congressional hearing not representing a major financial or banking trade association.  Congressman Mica was instrumental in both calling for the hearing and making certain that Florida community bankers that have been hard hit by Federal Regulators had a voice in their attempts to restart lending.  This joint hearing held by the House Committee on Financial Services and House Committee on Small Business addressed the difficulties faced by community banks as they have been stymied by federal regulators.

In David Bridgeman’s testimony he spoke on “[T]he challenges impacting small and commercial real estate credit availability.”  Bridgeman went on to say, “Community banks are the life blood for small business in America…Although community banks hold around 11% of total industry assets, community banks originate 38% of all small business and farm loans.”

Bridgeman stated that, “Pinnacle [Bank] did not make the subprime or exotic risky mortgages nor did we invest in complex derivative securities that led to the current crisis…Pinnacle Bank was the second largest SBA lender in North Florida.”

“We ended 2009 in a strong capital position,” Bridgeman continued, “Despite the bank’s strong capital position…the FDIC field examination…is recommending that our capital status be downgraded to ‘Adequately Capitalized’…This type of heavy handedness from the regulators is ultimately obstructing the economic recovery.”

Bridgeman mentioned the challenges of “Viable businesses with good credit histories and reasonable equity cannot obtain loans because their income and liquidity to support debt repayment are not sufficient for banks to make a loan using prudent underwriting standards.”

To summarize Bridgeman stated that, “The current regulatory environment is having a debilitative affect on local lending.”

Congressman Mica was encouraged to have our community represented at this hearing and went on to say, “We need to make sure that capital is available for job creation. Jobs are a top priority.”
