Oak Valley Bancorp Reports 3rd Quarter Results

Oak Valley Bancorp Reports 3rd Quarter Results 
OAKDALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/22/13 --  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 September
30, 2013, consolidated net income available to common shareholders
was a record $1,505,000, or $0.19 per diluted common share. This
compared to consolidated net income available to common shareholders
of $1,395,000, or $0.18 per diluted common share for the same period
a year ago.  
Year-to-date results for the nine months ended September 30, 2013,
include consolidated net income available to common shareholders of
$4,111,000, representing a 4.7% increase over the $3,925,000 recorded
during the same period last year.  
Total assets were $659.2 million at September 30, 2013, an increase
of $31.4 million, or 5.0%, from September 30, 2012. Total deposits
were $591.6 million as of September 30, 2013, an increase of $38.3
million, or 6.9% over September 30, 2012. Gross loans increased to
$413.9 million at September 30, 2013, an increase of $25.1 million,
or 6.5%, from September 30, 2012.  
"We've remained deliberately focused on building solid relationships,
knowing our financial performance is driven by the strength of our
customers and the depth of our relationships with them," stated Chris
Courtney, President and CEO of the Company and the Bank. "We are
extremely pleased to report another quarter of solid earnings. We've
been cautiously anticipating a return of borrowing confidence from
the local business community and we think we have seen a glimpse of
that in recent months. We remain hopeful that the trend continues
through the year and beyond."  
Net interest income reflected a decrease of $224,000 or 3.6% to $6.0
million for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to
$6.3 million for the same period last year. Loan and investment
yields continue to be tempered by pressures on interest rates, but
the growth in loan volume has helped mitigate the decrease in net
interest income. The Company's net interest margin for the three
months ended September 30, 2013 was 4.12%, compared 4.57% for the
same period last year. 
Non-interest expense for the quarter and nine month period ended
September 30, 2013 totaled $4.6 million and $14.0 million,
respectively, and $4.5 million and $13.7 million, respectively, for
the comparable periods in 2012. The year-to-date increase corresponds
primarily to growth in full time equivalent staff from 123 to 135.
Data processing costs associated with increased deposit account
activity have also been a factor.  
Non-performing assets as of September 30, 2013 were $4.5 million, or
0.68% of total assets. This is down from $6.6 million, or 1.05% at
September 30, 2012. The decrease reflects the continued management of
the portfolio.  
The provision for loan losses during the three months ended September
30, 2013, was $100,000, compared to $300,000 for the same period the
previous year. The ratio of loan loss reserves to gross loans
decreased to 1.85% at September 30, 2013, compared to 2.05% at
September 30, 2012. 
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.
