Broadway Financial in Los Angeles to Raise $9.7 Million
Broadway Financial, parent company of Broadway Federal Bank in Los Angeles, plans to raise nearly $10 million through a private placement. The company said it intends to sell about 8.9 million shares of common stock, including 1.9 million voting shares. "Upon consummation of these transactions, we will have completed the restructuring of the company's balance sheet, enhanced the liquidity of the company and positioned the bank for growth," CEO Wayne Bradshaw said. The announcement comes a year after Broadway shed roughly $25 million in troubled loans in an effort to boost its asset quality.
