“Our first quarter 2014 performance continues to build upon the achievements of 2013 and reflects additional growth in our loan and deposit portfolios in our local markets. The gradual and uneven improvement in local market conditions can be seen in recovering real estate values and other economic measures. We believe our markets continue to bear opportunities for organic growth with high quality loan demand and core deposits,” stated Susan K. Black, President and CEO. “The 44% year-over-year growth in non-interest bearing deposits highlights the solid local core business banking relationships we have added in the last year,” added Ms. Black. “Our commitment to Monterey County, as evidenced by our new director Paul Bruno and the new Salinas location which opened in the second quarter of 2013, has never been stronger. We are building a solid franchise and remain optimistic about future opportunities.”

The bank’s capital position remains above regulatory guidelines for well capitalized banks. At March 31, 2014, the Bank had a total risk based capital ratio of 11.32%. Book value per share at March 31, 2014 was $7.04. Net interest margin in the first quarter of 2014 was 4.77%.
