First National Bank of Northern California Reports First Quarter 2014 Earnings of $0.40 per Diluted Share

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- FNB Bancorp (OTCQB: FNBG), parent company of First National Bank of Northern California (the "Bank"), today announced net earnings available to common shareholders for the first quarter of 2014 of $1,664,000 or $0.40 per diluted share, compared to net earnings available to common shareholders of $772,000 or $0.19 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2013. During the first quarter of 2014, FNB Bancorp redeemed all the outstanding preferred shares held by the Treasury Department as part of their Small Business Lending (SBLF) Program. To partially fund this redemption, FNB Bancorp obtained a $6,000,000 loan that is secured by FNB Bancorp's ownership interest in First National Bank of Northern California. A cash dividend payment from the Bank along with existing cash balances at FNB Bancorp funded the remainder of the redemption. During the first quarter of 2014, net loans increased by $14,518,000.

"During the first quarter of 2014, the Bank experienced strong loan demand and was able to grow our net loans outstanding. At the same time, higher rate brokered time deposits acquired in our Oceanic Bank acquisition have continued to mature. Overall, our deposit portfolio has performed well, with the decrease in total deposits in line with management's projections. During the first quarter of 2014, there was an increase of $10,000,000 in the outstanding wholesale borrowings obtained from the Federal Home Loan Bank, which totaled $25,000,000 as of March 31, 2014. The Bank intends to slowly reduce the amount of our outstanding borrowings during 2014 by utilizing funds derived from principal repayments that occur within our investment portfolio and the slow and steady acquisition of additional deposit accounts and dollars. During the first quarter of 2014, we also redeemed all the outstanding preferred stock held by the U.S. Treasury. The dividend rate increased from 5% to 9% effective January 1, 2014, so it no longer made sense to keep this source of capital. In order to keep the Bank funded at a high level of common equity, during the first quarter of 2014, FNB Bancorp obtained a $6,000,000 holding company loan. The proceeds from this loan were contributed to the Bank as an additional capital contribution," stated Tom McGraw, Chief Executive Officer.

"During the first quarter, the Bank's problem assets continued to decrease. Borrowers are making additional investments in our service area, in particular in real estate investments. The skyline in San Francisco is filled with cranes building large residential housing towers. Loans are up for the quarter and overall, our assets grew by approximately 1.1% during the quarter. The Bank's Tier 1 leverage capital increased during the first quarter by $309,000 despite the redemption of the preferred stock by FNB Bancorp during the quarter. At March 31, 2014, the Bank's leverage capital stood at 9.96%. We remain 'well capitalized' by regulatory definitions in all our regulatory capital requirements. The Oceanic Bank purchase has been fully integrated into the operations of the Company and our capital is growing in line with our growth in assets. Steps taken by management to prudently reduce our future noninterest expenses are currently underway. To be successful in our current environment, we understand that we must meet or exceed our customers' expectations in their interaction with the Bank. For over 50 years, we have built our organization around the idea that we must continually earn our customer's business," continued CEO Tom McGraw.
