Mission Valley Earnings Mission Valley Bancorp announced earnings for the first half of 2018 of $2.17 million, a slight decrease from the $2.21 million posted last year. Chief Executive Tamara Gurney said the Sun Valley bank “deemed it prudent” last year to move some of its capital to lower-interest private debt instruments, accounting for the decrease in net income. Also, gains from the sale of SBA loans in the secondary market dipped slightly during the first half of the year. “Mission Valley is a relationship driven, community-based business bank dedicated to maintaining our high touch, personal service culture,” Gurney said in a statement. “The combination of a sound, diversified balance sheet, solid capital base and strong team continue to steer our course of steady and controlled growth throughout the remainder 2018 and beyond.” IPayment Layoffs Credit card payment service provider iPayment Holdings Inc. will lay off 30 employees from its Westlake Village headquarters in September, according to the company and the state Employment Development Department. The company filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notice with the state on July 18, just a month after Paysafe Group, in London, finalized its acquisition of iPayment. Kate Aldridge, vice president of corporate communications for Paysafe, said in an email to the Business Journal that the company does not take lightly the decision to cut staff. “We are now working hard to support those affected by providing wide-ranging assistance, both in terms of the severance packages we are offering as well as the job-seeking support we are organizing,” Aldridge said in the email. IPayment provides payment and processing solutions for small and medium-sized businesses. Last year, the company generated processing volumes of more than $25 billion from more than 137,000 merchant customers across the United States. Intuit Shrinks Footprint Financial software developer Intuit Inc. is cutting back on its leased space in Woodland Hills as it relocates this fall. Intuit, headquartered in Mountain View, currently occupies about 170,000 square feet in an office complex at 21215 Burbank Blvd. After the lease expires in September, it will relocate to 53,000 square feet in the Warner Center Towers at 21650 Oxnard St., according to CoStar Group Inc. The real estate database and news website reported that Chris Glennon, vice president of global real estate and workplace for Intuit, said the company had been looking since last year at the options of either renovating its space or relocating. “We knew we wanted to change to a different type of space – more open, collaborative with updated furnishings and technology,” Glennon said in a statement to CoStar Group. “So, we opted to move instead of remodel in the current site. We are excited about the move; it’s the right size and space for our future work needs.” Intuit has about 300 employees in its Woodland Hills office, all of whom will make the move to the new offices, Glennon told CoStar.
