CFO Michael Finn commented, “The Bank continues to improve its top line net interest income through general balance sheet growth as well as improvements in the mix of assets and liabilities.  Efficiency ratios continue to improve, as new branch locations added in 2018 become more profitable.  The Bank experienced a significant increase in its book value per share during 2019, primarily attributable to year-to-date net income of $3.2 million and year-to-date increases in the after-tax net unrealized gains from the investment securities portfolio totaling $5.2 million.”

CEO John M. Jelavich stated, “We are pleased with our third quarter and year to-date results.  The investment we made over the past year in new facilities and staff strengthens our ability to deliver our community banking services within our expanded footprint, which include Yuba, Sutter, Nevada, Placer and adjacent counties.  Our Auburn office, which opened last September, is off to a strong start, and we now expect it to reach its stand-alone profitability early next year.  Our relocated Grass Valley office continues to grow and add to the Bank’s profitability.  We are tracking to achieve record results for the year and are well positioned to create longer-term value for our shareholders.  We are fortunate to have a professional banking team that shares a passion for community banking and satisfaction in serving our customers, which has and will continue to enable our Bank’s growth.”
