CHINO, Calif., April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of Chino Commercial Bancorp (OTC BB: CCBC), the parent company of Chino Commercial Bank, N.A., announced the results of operations for the Bank and the consolidated holding company for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014 with net earnings of $224,422, or an increase of 31.5% compared with net income of $170,640 for the same quarter last year. Net income per basic share for the first quarter of 2014 was $0.27 as compared $0.21 for the same quarter last year.

Dann H. Bowman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are very pleased with the performance of the Bank during the first quarter.  In addition to very strong net earnings, the Bank also had no delinquent loans and suffered no credit losses during the first quarter.

Economic conditions appear to be rapidly improving in the Inland Empire, and many of our small business customers are reporting better than expected operating results.  We continue to remain optimistic about the economy, and are eager to lend to the businesses and consumers in our community."

Separately, the Bank recently reported that it had received recognition from the Findley Reports on Financial Institutions by again receiving their highest rating of Super Premier Performing.

Financial Condition

At March 31, 2014, total assets were $123.9 million, an increase of $0.8 million or 0.6% over $123.1 million at December 31, 2013. The increase is a direct result of growth in the Bank's deposits which increased by 0.6% to $110.2 million at March 31, 2014, or an increase from $109.6 million at December 31, 2013. At March 31, 2014, the Company's core deposits represent 96.5% of the total deposits.

Gross loans increased by 1.4% or $0.9 million during the first quarter to $65.2 million as compared with $64.3 million as of December 31, 2013.  The Bank's loan quality also improved during the first quarter as the level of nonperforming assets to total loans and OREO decreased from 0.17% at December 31, 2013 to 0.16% at March 31, 2014.

Earnings

The Company posted net interest income of $937,047 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 as compared to $990,365 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. Although average earning assets increased, the yield on earning assets decreased by 0.36% to 3.82%.  Average interest-earning assets were $106.9 million with average interest-bearing liabilities of $55.6 million, yielding a net interest margin of 3.56% for the first quarter of 2014; as compared to the average interest-earning assets of $104.0 million with average interest-bearing liabilities of $58.0 million, yielding a net interest margin of 3.86% for the first quarter of 2013.

Non-interest income totaled $439,560 for the first quarter of 2014, or an increase of 41.0% as compared with $311,783 earned during the first quarter last year. Service charges on deposit accounts increased 25.5% to $351,376 due to increased income from returned items and overdraft charges. Other miscellaneous income increased to $48,052 for the first quarter of 2014, compared to $10,736 for the same quarter in 2013, due to reimbursement of Fees in 2014 for a failed software solution; and income from leased premises received in 2014. Due to the purchase of additional BOLI, income from bank-owned life insurance increased from $16,313 in the first quarter of 2013 to $25,815 in the first quarter of 2014.

General and administrative expenses were $1,019,711 for the three months ended March 31, 2014, as compared to $1,028,012 for the first quarter of 2013. The largest component of general and administrative expenses was salary and benefits expense of $587,396 for the first quarter of 2014, as compared to $571,023 for the same quarter last year.  Regulatory assessments decreased by $29.547 or 51.1% to $28,221 in the first quarter of 2014 compared to $57,768 in the first quarter of 2013 due to the termination of the Formal Agreement with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency; in addition to a more favorable rating received from regulators in the fourth quarter of 2013. Advertising and marketing expenses increased 76.0% to $23,743 in the first quarter of 2014 from $13,489 for the same period last year.

"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
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 @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
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) i...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
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. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
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 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. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. 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...
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 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. 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.

An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
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 Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines...
