U.S. Bank in Western Idaho Named ``SBA 504 Lender of the Year;'' Recognized by Capital Matrix As Largest Bank Partner for 2003

BOISE, Idaho, Oct 28, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- U.S. Bank in Western Idaho has been named the Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 Lender of the Year by Capital Matrix, the regional certified development company serving southwestern Idaho and eastern Oregon. The award singles out the group of professional bankers who are consistently among the top SBA 504 producers in the Boise market from Sept. 1, 2002 through Aug. 31, 2003.

"This is quite an honor for U.S. Bank and speaks volumes about our commitment to bringing more businesses into the community," said Ridgley Denning, vice president and senior relationship manager at U.S. Bank. "We're very proud to have been recognized by Capital Matrix as a leader in the small business administration loan market."

Established by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the SBA 504 loan program offers small businesses long-term financing at affordable fixed interest rates. Small business owners can use the 504 loan option to purchase land, buildings or equipment as well as make building improvements. Under the program, a bank or financial institution will lend up to 50 percent of the project cost, Capital Matrix will lend up to 40 percent and the business owner provides a minimum of 10 percent toward the project's cost.

U.S Bank was recognized by Capital Matrix for financing ten projects through the SBA 504 program valued at more than $9.5 million. The bank was also nominated for their outstanding customer service in recognizing how the SBA 504 benefits customers and when the loan can make a difference in financing commercial real estate projects.
