LA JOLLA, Calif., Feb. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Silvergate Capital Corporation ("Silvergate"), the holding company for Silvergate Bank, a California chartered commercial bank (the "Bank"), today announced it completed a private placement of 9.5 million shares of Silvergate common stock, generating gross proceeds of $114 million.  Proceeds from this placement will support further growth in the Bank's nationwide fintech deposit initiative and its business banking and residential lending activities, as well as funding a one-time stock repurchase of approximately $11.4 million.  The Bank's special focus on deposits and cash management services for emerging financial technology companies was a major factor in its 770% growth in noninterest bearing demand deposits in 2017, to $1.5 billion, or 82.5% of total deposits.  The Bank also recently announced that 2017 was its twentieth consecutive profitable year, and the highest net income year in its history, with earnings of $8.7 million.

"We are very pleased with the outcome of our private placement, which generated broad based support from both traditional bank investors and other strategic investors," said Alan Lane, Silvergate's president and chief executive officer.  "Our greatly increased capital base will support our growth and enable us to continue making investments in technology and people that will improve efficiency and productivity, and expand the products and services offered to our business customers."

"Our recent private placement is a major milestone in the history of Silvergate, increasing our equity capital by over 120%," said Dennis Frank, Silvergate's chairman.  "The strong reception for this placement is a testament to our employees' sustained efforts in pursuing our strategies and the prospects that we believe lie before us."

Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, A Stifel Company and Compass Point Research & Trading, LLC acted as placement agents in the offering.  Holland and Knight acted as counsel to Silvergate, and Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP acted as counsel to the placement agents.
