REDDING, Calif., Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Patrick J. Moty, President &
Chief Executive Officer of Bank of Commerce Holdings (NASDAQ:BOCH), a $956.6
million bank holding company, and parent company of Redding Bank of Commerce™,
announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized the purchase of up
to 1,000,000 or 7% of its outstanding shares over a twelve-month period.

"The newly authorized stock repurchase plan, the third in the last eighteen
months, continues to provide us with an opportunistic and efficient tool to
enhance shareholder value. Current valuations and the Board's confidence in
the long-term financial outlook of the company provide management an
additional opportunity to buy back BOCH stock at attractive prices," said
Patrick J. Moty, President and Chief Executive Officer.

The stock repurchase plan is effective immediately and authorizes the Company
to conduct open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions from
time to time when, at management's discretion, it is determined that market
conditions and other factors warrant such purchases. There is no guarantee as
to the exact number of shares to be purchased, and the stock repurchase plan
may be modified, suspended, or terminated without prior notice. The stock
repurchase will be funded from existing cash balances.
