United Security Bancshares - Fourth Quarter Profits: $2.9 million

FRESNO, Calif., Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- United Security Bancshares (http://www.unitedsecuritybank.com/) (Nasdaq Global Select: UBFO) reported today unaudited consolidated net income of $2,945,000 or $0.20 per basic and diluted common share for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 and $7,269,000 or $0.49 per basic and diluted common share for the year ended December 31, 2013, as compared to $1,479,000 or $0.09 per basic and diluted common shares for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 and $6,069,000 or $0.41 per basic and diluted shares for the year ended December 31, 2012.

Annualized return on average equity (ROAE) for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was 15.8%, compared to 8.56% for the same period in 2012, and was 10.09% for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to 9.20% for the year ended December 31, 2012. Annualized return on average assets (ROAA) was 1.79% for the three months ended December 31, 2013, compared to 0.93% for the same period in 2012, and was 1.13% for the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to 0.97% for the year ended December 31, 2012.

Change in net income on a quarter-to-quarter comparative basis between the fourth quarters of 2013 and 2012 is largely the result of a $2,686,000 reversal of valuation allowance on deferred tax during the quarter ended December 31, 2013.  Partially offsetting the reversal of valuation allowance during the quarter ended December 31, 2013, compared to the same period ended December 31, 2012, was a decrease of $209,000 in interest income.  On a twelve month comparative basis, changes in income were the result of a $2,117,000 decrease in provision for credit losses, a $2,686,000 reversal on valuation allowance on deferred tax, and a $663,000 decrease in net cost of operation on OREO, offset by a decrease of $1,739,000 on gains realized on the sale of other investments and a $2,149,000 decrease in total interest income.

The Board of Directors of United Security Bancshares declared a fourth quarter 2013 stock dividend of one percent (1%) on December 17, 2013. The stock dividend was payable to shareholders of record on January 10, 2014, and the shares will be issued on January 22, 2014.

Dennis R. Woods, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, states, "2013 provided a great deal of positive momentum for the Bank with reductions in non-performing assets and stronger net income. The reversal of all $2.7 million of the allowance for deferred taxes is a further indication that the dynamics of the Company are improving. We continue to see improvements in both the local and the national economy and look forward to continued success in 2014."  Shareholders' equity at December 31, 2013 was $76,543,000, up $7,102,000 from shareholders' equity of $69,441,000 at December 31, 2012. 

Net interest income before provision for credit losses for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 totaled $5,362,000 and $21,391,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of $62,000 from $5,424,000 reported for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 and a decrease of $1,699,000 from the $23,090,000 reported for the year ended December 31, 2012, respectively. The net interest margin was 3.72% for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, and 3.87% for the year ended December 31, 2013, as compared to 4.03% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 and 4.40% for the year ended December 31, 2012. The Company continues to experience a decline in net interest margin due to decreases in loan and investment income.

Noninterest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 totaled $929,000, reflecting an increase of $478,000 from $451,000 in noninterest income reported for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. Noninterest income for the year ended December 31, 2013 totaled $3,968,000, reflecting a decrease of $1,508,000 from $5,476,000 in noninterest income reported for the year ended December 31, 2012. Customer service fees continue to provide the majority of the Company's noninterest income, totaling $902,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, as compared to $883,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, and $3,456,000 and $3,583,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Changes in noninterest income on a quarter-to-quarter comparative basis between the fourth quarters of 2013 and 2012 are largely the result of $233,000 in reduction in losses on fair value option of financial assets during the quarter ended December 31, 2013. The Company recorded a $68,000 impairment loss on investments during the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to no loss for the same period ended December 31, 2013.   On a year over year comparative basis, non-interest income decreased primarily due to a $1,739,000 gain on sale of investment during the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to no gain for the same period ended December 31, 2013.

Noninterest expense totaled $5,902,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, a increase of $358,000 as compared to $5,544,000 reported for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. For the year ended December 31, 2013, noninterest expense totaled $19,083,000, a decrease of $862,000 as compared to $19,945,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012. Between the fourth quarters of 2013 and 2012, professional fees and regulatory assessments decreased $476,000 and $233,000, respectively, partially offset by increases in salaries expense and loss on tax credit partnership.  On a twelve month comparative basis, noninterest expense decreased primarily due to a $271,000 net cost on OREO during the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to a net cost on OREO of $934,000 for the same period ended December 31, 2012.

The Company had a provision for loan loss of $22,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 and a negative provision for loan loss of $1,098,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to a provision of $9,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 and $1,019,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012. Net loan recoveries totaled $414,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 and $302,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013, as compared to net recoveries of $615,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, and net charge-offs of $2,883,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012. With a modest recovery in the economy and real estate markets within our service area, we have maintained an adequate allowance for loan losses which totaled 2.78% of total loans at December 31, 2013 compared to 2.95% of total loans at December 31, 2012. In determining the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses, Management's judgment is the primary determining factor for establishing the amount of the provision for loan losses and management considers the allowance for loan and lease losses at December 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 due and still accruing interest, decreased approximately $15,026,000 between December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2013. Additionally, nonperforming assets as a percentage of total assets decreased from 7.25% at December 31, 2012 to 5.04% at December 31, 2013. Nonaccrual loans decreased $1,084,000 between December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2013, while OREO, decreased $9,986,000 during the same period. Impaired loans totaled $18,132,000 at December 31, 2013, a decrease of $3,799,000 from the balance of $21,931,000 at December 31, 2012.

Forward-looking statements are based on management's knowledge and belief as of today and include information concerning the Company's possible or assumed future financial condition, and its results of operations, business and earnings outlook. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties.
