River City Bank analysis shows growth in health care, ag industries

From page A6 | September 9, 2011 |

Health care and agricultural industries grew by 11 percent while the area’s overall economy remains in a decline, according to the River City Bank Business Index, which studied the performance of 100 locally based businesses over the past three years.

The findings were released Wednesday by River City Bank, the largest locally owned bank in the Sacramento region.

“Earlier this year, experts had been reporting that there was some recovery at the national level,” said River City Bank President and CEO Steve Fleming in a news release. “Despite those reports, we knew that our region was still in a decline, so River City Bank sought to get more of a grasp on the actual figures.”

Through an analysis of 100 local businesses with revenue ranging from $2.5 million to $175 million, River City Bank found that overall revenues for the group fell by 6 percent in 2009 and another 12 percent in 2010. Operating profits for the group fell dramatically by more than 75 percent over the past two years. Specifically, revenues for the construction industry have fallen by 35 percent since 2008.

The River City Bank Business Index 100 encompasses data from various industries, including health care, construction, manufacturing and the nonprofit sector.

“Clearly, industries such as building and nonprofit remain in a decline, but health care and agribusiness are experiencing revenue growth,” Fleming said. “I think it’s also important to consider that industries that are more reliant on sales outside of the Sacramento area, particularly internationally, will do better than others right now.”

Full results from the River City Bank Business Index 100 are available on the bank’s website at www.rivercitybank.com.

Founded in 1973, River City Bank has branches in El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Yolo counties. For more information about River City Bank, visit its website or call (916) 567-2600.
