This information set forth under “Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition,” including Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
On January 19, 2012, Hanmi Financial Corporation (“Hanmi Financial”) issued a press release announcing its financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2011. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K.
This form contains forward-looking statements, which are included in accordance with the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “expects,” “plans,” “intends,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” or “continue,” or the negative of such terms and other comparable terminology. Although Hanmi believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, it cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause Hanmi’s actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to differ from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statement. These factors include the following: failure to maintain adequate levels of capital and liquidity to support Hanmi’s operations; the effect of regulatory orders Hanmi or the Bank has entered into and potential future supervisory action against Hanmi or the Bank; general economic and business conditions internationally, nationally and in those areas in which the Bank operates; volatility and deterioration in the credit and equity markets; changes in consumer spending, borrowing and savings habits; availability of capital from private and government sources; demographic changes; competition for loans and deposits and failure to attract or retain loans and deposits; fluctuations in interest rates and a decline in the level of the Bank’s interest rate spread; risks of natural disasters related to the Bank’s real estate portfolio; risks associated with Small Business Administration loans; failure to attract or retain key employees; changes in governmental regulation, including, but not limited to, any increase in FDIC insurance premiums; ability to receive regulatory approval for the Bank to declare dividends to Hanmi; adequacy of the Bank’s allowance for loan losses, credit quality and the effect of credit quality on the Bank’s provision for credit losses and allowance for loan losses; changes in the financial performance and/or condition of the Bank’s borrowers and the ability of the Bank’s borrowers to perform under the terms of their loans and other terms of credit agreements; Hanmi’s ability to successfully integrate acquisitions it may make; Hanmi’s ability to control expenses; and changes in securities markets. In addition, Hanmi sets forth certain risks in its reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Hanmi’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 and current and periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission thereafter, which could cause actual results to differ from those projected. You should understand that it is not possible to predict or identify all such risks. Consequently, you should not consider such disclosures to be a complete discussion of all potential risks or uncertainties. Hanmi undertakes no obligation to update such forward-looking statements except as required by law.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
