LOS ANGELES, April 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pacific Western Bank (the

The Notes are intended to qualify as Tier 2 capital for regulatory purposes.
The offering is expected to close on April 30, 2021, subject to the
satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The Bank intends to use the net
proceeds of the offering for general corporate purposes, including to provide
capital to support growth and the capital adequacy of the Bank. The Bank may
redeem the Notes in whole or in part, beginning on May 1, 2026, and on every
interest payment date thereafter, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the

of their face amount.
