First National Bank of Northern California Reports Fourth Quarter 2012 Earnings of $0.33 per Diluted Share

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.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
