United Security Bancshares - First Quarter Profits: $1.1 Million

FRESNO, Calif., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- United Security Bancshares (http://www.unitedsecuritybank.com/) (Nasdaq Global Select: UBFO) reported today unaudited consolidated net income of $1.1 million or $0.07 per basic and diluted common share for both the three months ended March 31, 2013 and March 31, 2012.

Annualized return on average equity (ROAE) for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was 6.20%, compared to 6.69% for the same period in 2012. Annualized return on average assets (ROAA) was 0.68% for the three moths ended March 31, 2013 compared to 0.67% for the same three-month period in 2012.

The Board of Directors of United Security Bancshares declared a first quarter 2013 stock dividend of one percent (1%) on March 26, 2013. The stock dividend was payable to shareholders of record on April 12, 2013, and the shares will be issued on April 24, 2013.

Dennis R. Woods, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, states, "The first quarter has been positive for the Company with continued reductions in problem assets and OREO, increases in capital, and positive net earnings. We continue to see improvements in the local economy and look forward to continued success during the remainder of 2013."  Shareholders' equity at March 31, 2013 was $70.5 million, up $1.0 million from shareholders' equity of $69.4 million at December 31, 2012.  

Net interest income before provision for credit losses totaled $5.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, down $819,000 from $6.1 million reported for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The net interest margin was 3.94% for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to 4.63% for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 totaled $1.5 million, reflecting an increase of $648,000 from the $896,000 in noninterest income reported for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The increase between the two periods is due, in large part, to gains recorded during the first quarter of 2013 of more than $1.0 million from sales of other real estate owned through foreclosure. Customer service fees continue to provide the majority of the Company's noninterest income from operations, totaling $779,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to $903,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012. Reductions in customer service fees between the two three-month periods is the result of decreases in several fee categories including overdraft fees and account analysis fees, which may fluctuate between periods.

Noninterest expense totaled $5.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, down $390,000 from the $5.5 million reported for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The primary component of the decline in noninterest expense between the three-month periods is a decrease of $476,000 in impairment losses and other expenses related to OREO.

The Company recorded a negative provision for credit losses of $9,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to a provision of $2,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The Company realized net credit charge-offs totaling $371,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to net charge-offs totaling $600,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012. As a result of provisions and net charge-offs, the allowance for credit losses totaled 2.86% of total loans at March 31, 2013 compared to 2.95% of total loans at December 31, 2012. In determining the adequacy of the allowance for credit losses, Management's judgment is the primary determining factor for establishing the amount of the provision for credit losses and management considers the allowance for credit losses March 31, 2013 to be adequate.

Non-performing assets, comprised of nonaccrual loans, troubled debt restructures (TDR), other real estate owned through foreclosure (OREO), and loans more than 90 days past days and still accruing interest, decreased approximately $3.2 million between December 31, 2012 and March 31, 2013. Additionally, nonperforming assets as a percentage of total assets decreased from 7.25% at December 31, 2012 to 6.89% at March 31, 2013. Nonaccrual loans decreased $1.9 million between December 31, 2012 and March 31, 2013, while OREO, decreased $2.0 million during the same period. Impaired loans totaled $20.0 million at March 31, 2013, down $1.9 million from the balance of $21.9 million at December 31, 2012.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. Learn about IoT, Big Data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
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. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
