Net interest income of $6.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 is an increase of $1.0 million or 20.9% from the six months ended June 30, 2018.  Net interest income of $3.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 is an increase of $440,000 or 16.7% from the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and an increase of $111,000 or 3.8% (15.0% annualized) from the quarter ended March 31, 2019.  As a function of the Bank’s loan growth, a provision expense of $55,000 was realized during the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

CFO Michael Finn commented, “During the second quarter, events in fixed income markets presented management with an opportunity to sell and replace selected investment securities while reducing risk in the portfolio, generating a higher weighted average yield, and realizing approximately $528,000 in net gains in the process, which contributed to our strong earnings for the quarter.  The Bank is also experiencing improving efficiency ratios, as income generated at new branch locations added in 2018 is growing and helping to offset the costs of those locations.”

CEO John M. Jelavich stated, “I am very pleased with the direction of the Bank and the results we have achieved to date.  Our loan growth has been strong, and our credit quality remains good.  We are seeing the positive diversification impact that Auburn and Grass Valley bring to our deposit base, which is early validation of our game plan.  Our Auburn office, which opened last fall, continues to maintain solid momentum and is working closer to achieving its stand-alone profitability.” 

“From a macro perspective, during the second quarter, there was a significant decline in long term interest rates and a flattening of the yield curve, which to the degree this environment persists, could put pressure on margins for our Bank and our industry going forward.  That said, we believe our Bank is well positioned for rate cycles as they may occur.  We are fortunate to have a professional and engaged team who continue to deliver the local banking experience our customers desire, which is instrumental in generating long term value for our shareholders,”  Jelavich concluded.
