Opus Bank (“Opus”) (Nasdaq: OPB) is announcing a $1 billion commitment to provide capital funding to those qualified businesses that want to expand their operations, revenues, and employees in the State of California, thereby driving increased economic expansion and job growth.

Stephen H. Gordon, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Opus Bank, stated, “I believe the California business environment has floundered for too long and substantial growth has to come from the bottom up. A recent CEO Magazine report ranked California 50th out of 50 in terms of states with the best business climate. The challenges California businesses face are significant and businesses need to know that capital funding from a pro-business, strategic financial partner is available.” Gordon added, “California is the world’s eighth largest economy, yet it leads the nation in the number of businesses that have chosen to leave the state. We instead must create an environment where businesses feel confident and emboldened to expand and grow in California.”

Opus’ $1 Billion Initiative makes capital available immediately to qualified emerging businesses with revenues of $1-$10 million and burgeoning commercial enterprises with revenues of $10-$100 million.

Gordon concluded, “I look forward to Opus’ financial commitment having a direct positive impact on metropolitan communities throughout California.”
