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.
