Oak Valley Bancorp Reports 4th Quarter Results

OAKDALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/22/14 -- Oak Valley Bancorp (NASDAQ: OVLY), the bank holding company for Oak Valley Community Bank and Eastern Sierra Community Bank, recently reported consolidated financial results. For the three months ended December 31, 2013, consolidated net income available to common shareholders was a record $1.7 million, or $0.22 per diluted share. This compared to consolidated net income available to common shareholders of $1.4 million, or $0.18 per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and represented a 21.5% increase over the prior year.

Net income for 2013 totaled $5.9 million compared to $5.8 million for 2012. After adjustment for preferred stock dividends and accretion, consolidated net income available to common shareholders was $5.8 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, compared to consolidated net income of $5.3 million, or $0.69 per diluted common share, in 2012. This represents a 9.2% increase in consolidated net income available to common shareholders and marks a new annual earnings record for Oak Valley Bancorp.

Total assets grew to $672.1 million as of December 31, 2013, which was an increase of $11.5 million, or 1.7% over the prior year. Deposits increased to $602.6 million, which was an increase of $15.6 million, or 2.7% over the prior year. Gross loans at year end totaled $419.4 million, reflecting an increase of $28.5 million, or 7.3%, over December 31, 2012.

"We are pleased to report another year of solid earnings. Our commitment to customer care and relationship building is unwavering and the cornerstone of our success," stated Chris Courtney, President and CEO of the Company and the Bank. "Our results are a reflection of emerging consumer confidence and economic expansion in the communities we serve."

Non-performing assets were $3.3 million, or 0.48% of total assets at December 31, 2013. This is down from $6.9 million, or 1.05% at December 31, 2012. There are currently six properties remaining with the non-performing classification; five of which remain as loans, along with one property taken into OREO.

The allowance for loan losses totaled 1.83% of gross loans at December 31, 2013 compared to 2.04% at December 31, 2012. The annual provision for loan losses of $300,000 in 2013 was down from $1.2 million in 2012. Given the high quality of the loan portfolio, limited provisioning was required to support the growth of the portfolio.

Net interest income of $24.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, decreased by $570,000, or 2.3%, from the prior year. The year began with margin compression, corresponding to low loan pricing and high cash balances. The margin stabilized in the second half of the year, as cash was deployed into new loans. The Company's net interest margin was 4.13% for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to 4.53% for the year ended December 31, 2012. Net interest margin for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was 4.19%, compared to 4.15% for the three months ended December 31, 2012.

Non-interest income was $3.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to $3.1 million the prior year. The increase is partially attributable to additional fee income related to deposit growth and commissions corresponding to growth in Oak Valley Investments.

Non-interest expense was $18.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to $18.2 million for the prior year, an increase of $411,000, or 2.3%. This increase consists primarily of costs associated with servicing deposit growth across all branches.

The Company currently operates through 14 branches in Oakdale, Sonora, Turlock, Stockton, Patterson, Ripon, Escalon, Manteca, three branches in Modesto, and three branches in their Eastern Sierra Division, which includes Bridgeport, Mammoth Lakes, and Bishop.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data.
