FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION

IN RE: New Century Bank
Southfield, Michigan
Application for Federal Deposit Insurance

STATEMENT

Pursuant to the provisions of section 5 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1815), an application for federal deposit insurance has been filed on behalf of New Century Bank, Southfield, Michigan, a proposed new state chartered stock bank to be located at 23155 Northwestern Highway, Southfield, Michigan. New Century Bank will be a member of the Federal Reserve.

New Century Bank will be organized as a commercial bank specializing in equipment leasing. Initial capitalization is adequate, and operating profits are projected within a reasonable period of time. The factors relating to general character and fitness of management and risk to the deposit insurance fund have been resolved as favorable. A review of the applicant's statements and other available information revealed no inconsistencies with the purpose of the Community Reinvestment Act.

The primary area to be served by this institution is all of Oakland County, Michigan. New Century Bancorp, Southfield, Michigan, a proposed one-bank holding company, will be the sole shareholder of this institution. No formal objections to this proposal were filed, and granting of deposit insurance to this institution would have no substantive effect on the competitive environment. The proposed investment in fixed assets is reasonable, and future earnings prospects are favorable.

Accordingly, based on careful evaluation of all available relevant facts and information, the Associate Director, pursuant to delegated authority, has concluded that approval of the application is warranted.
