"We are pleased with the Bank's progress in 2012. We have taken important steps in assuring that the Bank has a solid foundation from which to continue its growth. During the past year the Bank added thirteen new members to our team and increased net staffing by seven. We relocated our Danville office to a new full service location, closed on the sale of our Oakland headquarters building, and most importantly, we added a significant number of new clients to our portfolio as evidenced by loan and deposit growth of 12.2% and 24.4% respectively.

"We are especially gratified to have been recognized for the twelfth time with a Bank Enterprise Award ("BEA") from the Community Development Financial Institution Fund of the US Treasury. Moreover, this is the third year in a row where the Fund has granted the Bank the maximum Award available based on its active participation in the marketplace. This Award is a clear indication that the Bank is making a real difference in the communities we serve.

"As we look to 2013 we expect to benefit from the increased earning asset base and anticipated cost savings from our new Oakland headquarters while we continue to make investments in personnel, especially in the important San Jose and Mid-Peninsula market areas," stated William S. Keller, President and Chief Executive Officer.
