Pacific Alliance Bank Announces Expansion in SBA Lending.

ROSEMEAD, Calif. -- Pacific Alliance Bank (OTC Bulletin Board: PFBN) announced today expansion of its SBA lending, to work with the SBA policy changes to stimulate new loans to small businesses in Southern California. The Small Business Administration (SBA) recently announced that borrower fees have been dramatically reduced, guarantees to the lenders have been increased, and the definition of a small business has been expanded to allow more businesses to meet the definition of what qualifies under the SBA lending programs.

PAB has hired SVP Gary Youmans, a 30-year veteran of SBA lending, to head up this expansion. Mr. Youmans has an extensive background in the industry, both as a lender and advocate. He is a founder and board member of the National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders (NAGGL), the industry's trade organization, and was the 2001 winner of the SBA National Financial Advocate of the Year in ceremonies held in Washington DC. Other additions include VP Chris Spivey who's been a leading SBA lender for over 20 years, and VP Shawn Macdonald, experienced in both underwriting and business development. Further additions to be announced.

"We are very fortunate to bring on such a team to lead our SBA Department," said Rob Oehler, CEO of Pacific Alliance. "We feel that the time is right to make this expansion, to help the small businesses increase their access to capital. Having the right people in place will make it work for both the borrowers and the Bank."

Pacific Alliance Bank was formed to achieve its mission of delivering business value in its market, serving small to mid-size businesses, owners, and key employees who seek a personal bank ready to meet their banking needs with customized financial services.

PAB is a full-service FDIC insured community bank, headquartered at 8400 E. Valley Blvd., Rosemead, California 91770. For more information, contact Ms. Trish Lomeli-Sproles (626) 773-8897 or and visit
