FRESNO, Calif., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dennis R. Woods, President and Chief Executive Officer of United Security Bancshares http://www.unitedsecuritybank.com/ (Nasdaq: UBFO) reported today unaudited results for the quarter and year-to-date periods ended September 30, 2010. Consolidated net income was $410,000, or $0.03 per basic and diluted common share for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, compared to $693,000, or $0.05 per basic and diluted common share for the quarter ended September 30, 2009. Net income was $515,000 or $0.04 per basic and diluted common share for the previous quarter ended June 30, 2010.
Net income was $1,368,000, or $0.11 per basic and diluted common share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, compared to a loss of $4,112,000, or $0.32 per basic and diluted common share for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.
Annualized return on average equity (ROE) for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 was 2.07%, compared to 3.63% for the same period in 2009, and 2.65% for the previous quarter ended June 30, 2010. Annualized return on average assets (ROA) was 0.23% for quarter ended September 30, 2010 compared to 0.38% for the same period in 2009, and 0.29% for the previous quarter ended June 30, 2010.
The Board of Directors of United Security Bancshares declared a 4th quarter 2010 stock dividend of one percent (1%). The stock dividend replaces the quarterly cash dividend. The stock dividend was payable to shareholders of record on October 8, 2010, and the shares will be issued on October 20, 2010.
Woods added, "Improvements in the housing sector seen in the first half of year dissipated in the 3rd quarter with the loss of the home buyer tax credit program. The now-expired credits may have encouraged buyers to purchase homes sooner than they would have otherwise and created a market lull once they expired. Other factors like weak job growth and high unemployment play a significant factor in home purchase decisions. For most people out home shopping now, there are ultra-low mortgage rates and this may spur home sales in time."
"We continue to see improvements in the Company's capital ratios, liquidity, problem asset levels, and earnings continue to show improvement over the year-ago period as reflected in net income of $1,368,000 reported for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 as compared to a net loss of $4,112,000 reported for the nine months ended September 2009. Reengineering ourselves along with a lot of hard work continues to pay-off and that is very rewarding."
Shareholders' equity at September 30, 2010 was $78,654,000 and Shareholders' equity at September 30, 2009 was $76,698,000.
Net interest income before provision for credit loss for the 3rd quarter 2010 was $6,820,000, down from $7,159,000 reported during the 3rd quarter of 2009. The net interest margin was 4.38% in the 3rd quarter of 2010 and 4.61% in the 3rd quarter of 2009. For the previous quarter ended June 30, 2010, net interest income was $7,376,000 and the net interest margin was 4.87%. The net interest margin was 4.66% for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 4.46% for the same period in 2009.
Noninterest income for the 3rd quarter of 2010 was $1,470,000, up $451,000 from $1,019,000 in the 3rd quarter of 2009 for an increase of 44.2%. The net losses on other real estate owned through foreclosure (OREO) sales were $11,000 in the 3rd quarter of 2010 compared with net losses of $611,000 in the 3rd quarter of 2009, and this is the primary component accounting for the change in noninterest income.

The increase resulted primarily from the gain from the fair value adjustment to the carrying amount of Trust Preferred Securities that was up $555,000, gains on the sale of OREO up $853,000 and gains on the sale of loans up $508,000 as compared with nine-months ended September 30, 2009.

This news release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended and the Company intends such statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are based on management's knowledge and belief as of today and include information concerning the Company's possible or assumed future financial condition, and its results of operations, business and earnings outlook. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties. A number of factors, some of which are beyond the Company's ability to control or predict, could cause future results to differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements. These factors include (1) changes in interest rates, (2) significant changes in banking laws or regulations, (3) increased competition in the company's market, (4) other-than-expected credit losses, (5) earthquake or other natural disasters impacting the condition of real estate collateral, (6) the effect of acquisitions and integration of acquired businesses, (7) the impact of proposed and/or recently adopted changes in laws, and regulations on the Company and its business, including California tax legislation and the subsequent Dec. 31, 2003, announcement by the Franchise Tax Board regarding the taxation of REITs and RICs; (8) changing bank regulatory conditions, policies, whether arising as new legislation or regulatory initiatives or changes in our regulatory classifications, that could lead to restrictions on activities of banks generally or as to the Bank, including specifically the formal order between the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and the Company and the Bank, and (9) unknown economic impacts caused by the State of California's budget issues. Management cannot predict at this time the severity or duration of the effects of the recent business slowdown on our specific business activities and profitability. Weaker or a further decline in capital and consumer spending, and related recessionary trends could adversely affect our performance in a number of ways including decreased demand for our products and services and increased credit losses. Likewise, changes in interest rates, among other things, could slow the rate of growth or put pressure on current deposit levels and affect the ability of borrowers to repay loans.
