CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bank of Commerce (OTC Bulletin Board: BONC) posted net income available to common shareholders of $22,000 for the quarter ending September 30, 2010, compared to net loss available to common shareholders of $1,326,000 for the same period last year. Total assets have grown from $173.4 million at December 31, 2009 to $178.4 million as of September 30, 2010.

"Our Bank remains a well capitalized institution despite the still difficult economic environment. It appears that the overall economy is stabilizing in Charlotte, but we are still seeing some deterioration in real estate values. Many of our clients' loans are collateralized by real estate, so we are continuing to increase our loan loss reserve. Even with this expense we are able to generate a profit," said Wes Sturges, President & CEO.
