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.

Software AG helps organizations transform into Digital Enterprises, so they can differentiate from competitors and better engage customers, partners and employees. Using the Software AG Suite, companies can close the gap between business and IT to create digital systems of differentiation that drive front-line agility. We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
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. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
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, will discuss 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 to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
