Sierra Vista Bank Reports Earnings in 4Q12

FOLSOM, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- Sierra Vista Bank (OTCQB: SVBA) today reported earnings of $38,000, for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $64,000 for fourth quarter 2011. Sierra Vista Bank has now been profitable for nine consecutive months, including the second, third and fourth quarter of 2012. The Bank showed a net loss of $485,000 for the year ending December 31, 2012 due to a large loan loss provision and a specific reserve in the first quarter. All financial results are preliminary and unaudited.

The Bank continued to show a strong net interest margin of 5.07% for the fourth quarter 2012 and 4.92% for the year, fueled by a yield on earning assets of 5.29% and a cost of funds of 0.24%. "We are finding opportunity as our market area continues to experience slow but steady economic improvement," stated Gregory Patton, President & CEO.

In the third quarter of 2012 the Bank completed a Public Offering increasing capital by over $2 million with an additional $235,000 contributed during the fourth quarter of the year from an Accredited Investor whom the Bank has entered in to an agreement with for an additional $1.4 million subject to regulatory approval. The capital received has substantially strengthened the Bank's balance sheet and increased the capital level on December 31, 2012 to $10 million creating a leverage ratio of 12.48%. This compares to a leverage ratio of 9.02% on March 31, 2012 and 10.01% on December 31, 2011.

Financial Highlights (at or for the quarter ended December 31, 2012)

  • The net interest margin was 5.07% for the fourth quarter and 4.92% for the year.
  • Non-interest bearing deposits represented 31.7% of total deposits at December 31, 2012.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
