SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/13 -- FNB Bancorp (OTCQB: FNBG), parent company of First National Bank of Northern California (the "Bank"), today announced net earnings available to common shareholders for the fourth quarter of 2012 of $1,189,000 or $0.33 per diluted share, compared to net earnings available to common shareholders of $1,085,000 or $0.31 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2011. Dividend payments on the preferred shares outstanding were made as required by the Treasury Department's Small Business Lending Program during the fourth quarter of 2012. Total assets as of December 31, 2012 were $875,340,000 compared to $715,641,000 as of December 31, 2011. Our net loan totals increased by $97,842,000 or 22% during the twelve months of this year, and our deposits increased $146,574,000 or 24% during the same time period. The Company's liquidity position remains strong with $234,945,000 in available for sale securities and $41,077,000 in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2012.
On September 15, 2011, Preferred Stock was issued by FNB Bancorp to the U. S. Treasury as part of the U. S. Treasury's Small Business Lending Fund ("SBLF"). The initial dividend rate is 5%. Depending on the volume of our small business lending, it can decrease to as low as one percent. If our small business lending does not increase in the first two years, the rate will increase to seven percent. After 4.5 years, the dividend rate will increase to nine percent if the Company has not repaid the SBLF funding. The proceeds of this Preferred Stock investment were used to pay off the Preferred Stock Series A and B that were issued by the U. S. Treasury under the TARP program in 2009.

"The fourth quarter of 2012 was our first full quarter of operations following the acquisition of Oceanic Holding, Inc. and Oceanic Bank. The integration of the two operations went smoothly, and thanks to the dedication and hard work of our employees, key customer relationships have been retained and new business relationships have been introduced into the Company. This acquisition was extremely profitable to the Company, not only due to the initial bargain purchase gain of $3.7 million dollars recorded at inception, but also for the future business opportunities it provides. As additional business acquisition opportunities become available, we welcome the opportunity to explore them. We are also looking to grow the Bank from within, and during 2012 we opened our first loan center in Sunnyvale, CA. This marks our first physical presence in the county of Santa Clara," stated Tom McGraw, Chief Executive Officer.
"Fourth quarter earnings were strong and full year earnings available to common shareholders were the highest in the history of the Company. Our net interest margin continues to be above peer average and asset quality is improving. Fourth quarter nonperforming assets were lower than third quarter levels. During the fourth quarter, we also continued to grow our allowance for loan and lease losses. Noninterest income in the fourth quarter declined from year ago levels primarily due to the fact that the Bank reduced the volume of investment portfolio security sales in the current quarter compared to prior periods. Sales that did occur during the fourth quarter were primarily related to repositioning the investment portfolio as a result of the Oceanic Bank acquisition and no gain or loss was recorded on the transaction," continued Tom McGraw.
"Looking forward to 2013, we hope that you will join us at our annual shareholders' meeting and help us celebrate our 50th anniversary. This milestone event has been accompanied by a rebranding effort and new logo that has been adopted by the Company. You may see the new signage on our buildings already. We want everyone to know that First National Bank of Northern California is looking forward to the future, as we continue our efforts to be the community bank of choice in San Francisco and San Mateo counties," stated Tom McGraw.
