"The growth in the loan portfolio this quarter was enhanced by the opening of the Bank's Morro Bay branch, our third full-service branch.  In addition the Bank opened a Loan Production Office in Atascadero last November.  These two opportunities have allowed the Bank to provide services to an extended market with San Luis Obispo County.  In addition to the loan growth, the Bank experienced growth in non-interest bearing deposits in the last 12 months of $7.4 million, going from $44.5 million at September 30, 2011 to $51.9 million at September 30, 2012, an increase of 17 percent.  Non-interest bearing deposits now represent 46 percent of the Bank's total deposits.  As a result, net interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $4.4 million versus $3.7 million for the same period in 2011, an increase of $666 thousand."

"The Bank also continued to enhance its strong credit quality this quarter with no loans past due more than 30 days and no loans on non-accrual.  Additionally, Other Real Estate Owned totaled $754 thousand at September 30, 2012, down $256 thousand from $1.0 million at September 30, 2011," said Sherman.
