United Security Bancshares - Third Quarter Profits: $1.9 million PR Newswire FRESNO, Calif., Oct. 17, 2013 FRESNO, Calif., Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- United Security Bancshares (http://www.unitedsecuritybank.com/) (Nasdaq Global Select: UBFO) reported today unaudited consolidated net income of $1,852,000 or $0.13 per basic and diluted common share for the quarter ended September30, 2013 and $4,323,000 or $0.30 per basic and diluted common share for the nine months ended September30, 2013, as compared to $1,366,000 or $0.09 per basic and diluted common shares for the quarter ended September30, 2012 and $4,591,000 or $0.32 per basic and diluted shares for the nine months ended September30, 2012. Annualized return on average equity (ROAE) for the quarter ended September30, 2013 was 10.14%, compared to 8.25% for the same period in 2012, and was 8.10% for the nine months ended September30, 2013, compared to 9.43% for the nine months ended September30, 2012. Annualized return on average assets (ROAA) was 1.14% for the three months ended September30, 2013, compared to 0.87% for the same period in 2012, and was 0.90% for the nine months ended September30, 2013 compared to 0.99% for the nine months ended September30, 2012. Change in net income on a quarter-to-quarter comparative basis between the third quarters of 2013 and 2012 is largely the result of a negative provision for credit losses of $1,150,000 during the quarter ended September30, 2013, compared to a $4,000 provision during the same period ended September30, 2012. Partially offsetting the negative provision during the quarter ended September30, 2013, compared to the same period ended September30, 2012, was a decrease of $339,000 in interest income and an increase of $507,000 in non-interest expense. On a nine month comparative basis, changes in income were the result of a $2,130,000 decrease in provision for credit losses and a $1,274,000 decrease in net cost of operation on OREO, offset by a decrease of $1,807,000 on gains realized on the sale of other investments and a $1,943,000 decrease in total interest income. The Board of Directors of United Security Bancshares declared a third quarter 2013 stock dividend of one percent (1%) on September 24, 2013. The stock dividend was payable to shareholders of record on October 11, 2013, and the shares will be issued on October 23, 2013. Dennis R. Woods, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, states, "We are continuing to see reductions in problem assets, increases in capital, and positive net earnings. We continue to see improvements in both the local and the national economy and look forward to continued success during the fourth quarter of 2013." Shareholders' equity at September30, 2013 was $73,499,000, up $4,058,000 from shareholders' equity of $69,441,000 at December31, 2012. Net interest income before provision for credit losses for the quarter ended September30, 2013 totaled $5,427,000 and $16,029,000 for the nine months ended September30, 2013, a decrease of $195,000 from $5,622,000 reported for the quarter ended September30, 2012 and a decrease of $1,640,000 from the $17,669,000 reported for the nine months ended September30, 2012, respectively. The net interest margin was 3.83% for the quarter ended September30, 2013, and 3.90% for the nine months ended September30, 2013, as compared to 4.25% for the quarter ended September30, 2012 and 4.53% for the nine months ended September30, 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 September30, 2013 totaled $1,413,000, reflecting an increase of $440,000 from $973,000 in noninterest income reported for the quarter ended September30, 2012. Noninterest income for the nine months ended September30, 2013 totaled $3,038,000, reflecting a decrease of $1,917,000 from $4,955,000 in noninterest income reported for the nine months ended September30, 2012. Customer service fees continue to provide the majority of the Company's noninterest income, totaling $873,000 for the quarter ended September30, 2013, as compared to $902,000 for the quarter ended September30, 2012, and $2,554,000 and $2,700,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Changes in noninterest income on a quarter-to-quarter comparative basis between the third quarters of 2013 and 2012 are largely the result of an increase of $312,000 on gains on fair value option of financial assets during the quarter ended September30, 2013. The Company recorded a $113,000 impairment loss on investments during the quarter ended September30, 2012, compared to no loss for the same period ended September30, 2013. On a nine-month comparative basis, non-interest income decreased primarily due to a $1,807,000 gain on sale of investment during the nine months ended September30, 2012, compared to no gain for the same period ended September30, 2013. Noninterest expense totaled $4,954,000 for the quarter ended September30, 2013, an increase of $507,000 as compared to $4,447,000 reported for the quarter ended September30, 2012. For the nine months ended September30, 2013, noninterest expense totaled $13,181,000, a decrease of $1,152,000 as compared to $14,333,000 for the nine months ended September30, 2012. Between the third quarters of 2013 and 2012, net operating cost on other real estate owned and salaries expenses increased $273,000 and $132,000, respectively, partially offset by decreases in occupancy expenses and professional fees. On a nine month comparative basis, noninterest expense decreased primarily due to a $1,036,000 net gain on OREO during the nine months ended September30, 2013, compared to a net cost on OREO of $238,000 for the same period ended September30, 2012. The Company had a negative provision for loan loss of $1,150,000 for the quarter ended September30, 2013 and $1,120,000 for the nine months ended September30, 2013, compared to a provision of $4,000 for the quarter ended September30, 2012 and $1,010,000 for the nine months ended September30, 2012. Net loan recoveries totaled $545,000 for the quarter ended September30, 2013 and net loan charge-offs totaled $112,000 for the nine months ended September30, 2013 as compared to net charge-offs of $453,000 for the quarter ended September30, 2012, and $3,498,000 for the nine months ended September30, 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 2.75% of total loans at September30, 2013 compared to 2.95% of total loans at December31, 2012 and 2.97% at September30, 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 September30, 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 $8,344,000 between December31, 2012 and September30, 2013. Additionally, nonperforming assets as a percentage of total assets decreased from 7.25% at December31, 2012 to 5.85% at September30, 2013. Nonaccrual loans decreased $1,500,000 between December31, 2012 and September30, 2013, while OREO, decreased $6,807,000 during the same period. Impaired loans totaled $21,698,000 at September30, 2013, a decrease of $233,000 from the balance of $21,931,000 at December31, 2012.
