Avidbank Holdings, Inc. Announces Record Total Assets for the Third Quarter of 2013 Business Wire PALO ALTO, Calif. -- November 1, 2013 Avidbank Holdings, Inc. (“the Company”) (OTCBB: AVBH), sole owner of Avidbank (“the Bank”), an independent full-service commercial bank serving businesses and consumers in Northern California, announced total assets of $483 million at the end of the third quarter of 2013, compared to $415 million one year earlier. 3^rd Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights *Net income was $1,873,000 for the first nine months of 2013, compared to $2,080,000 for the first nine months of 2012. *Diluted earnings per common share were $0.52 for the first nine months of 2013, compared to $0.65 for the first nine months of 2012. *Net income was $436,000 for the third quarter of 2013, compared to $656,000 for the third quarter of 2012. *Diluted earnings per common share were $0.09 for the third quarter of 2013, compared to $0.20 for the third quarter of 2012. *Total assets grew by 16% over the past twelve months, ending the third quarter at $483 million. *Total loans outstanding grew by 5%, ending the third quarter at $245 million. *Total deposits grew by 16% over the past twelve months, ending the third quarter at $434 million and non-interest bearing deposits as a percent of total deposits grew to 37% at September 2013 compared to 32% at September 2012. *Other assets increased by 66% from twelve months ago to $19 million as a result of our investment in bank owned life insurance policies on our management team of which the Bank is the sole beneficiary. *The bank continues to be well capitalized with a Tier 1 Leverage Ratio of 10.2% and a Total Risk Based Capital Ratio of 14.0%. Mark D. Mordell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "One of our main objectives for 2013 has been to grow our market footprint and our franchise value, and we are pleased that in the third quarter we recorded the highest asset level since the Bank was founded. A continuing high level of payoffs due to the robust economy has caused our loans outstanding to contract slightly in the quarter. We look forward to the additional results that will be generated from the investments we have made in our lending infra-structure in Corporate Banking, Corporate Finance and Commercial Real Estate." For the three months ended September 30, 2013, net interest income before provision for loan losses was $3.8 million, an increase of more than $90,000 or 2% compared to the third quarter of 2012. The growth in net interest income was primarily the result of a reduction in interest rates paid on deposits. Average earning assets were $429 million in the third quarter of 2013, an 11% increase over the third quarter of the prior year. The net interest margin was 3.60% for the third quarter, compared to 3.87% for the third quarter of 2012. The decline in net interest margin was primarily caused by the decline in loan yields due to the current interest rate environment and a change in the mix of earning assets whereby the growth in lower yielding fed funds comprised a greater percentage of total earning assets. This was partially offset by continued declines in our cost of funds. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 the Bank’s average cost of interest bearing liabilities was 0.42% and 0.44%, respectively, compared to 0.72% and 0.80% for the comparative 2012 periods. A loan loss provision of $245,000 was made in the third quarter of 2013 while no loan loss provision was made in the third quarter of 2012. For the first nine months of 2013 net interest income before provision was $11.5 million, a $0.3 million increase over the prior year. The growth in net interest income was the result of growth in earning assets partially offset by a decrease in net interest margin. Average earning assets grew by $54 million or 15% over 2012. The net interest margin decreased from 4.23% in 2012 to 3.79% in 2013, primarily as a result of a drop in loan yields partially offset by a decrease in the Bank's cost of funds. A loan loss provision of $245,000 has been recorded to date in 2013, while a $100,000 loan loss provision was recognized in the first nine months of 2012. We have experienced net recoveries of $29,000 for the first nine months of 2013 compared to net charge-offs of $186,000 for the first nine months of 2012. Non-accrual loans totaled $685,000 on September 30, 2013 compared to $975,000 for the end of the previous year. "Our high underwriting standards continue to serve us well as we prepare for growth in the coming quarters," stated Mr. Mordell. Non-interest expense grew by $435,000 in the third quarter of 2013 to $3.1 million compared to $2.7 million for the third quarter of 2012. This growth is due to investments in loan production personnel and facilities as we continue to expand our footprint and grow our loan portfolio. Non-interest expense grew by $1.4 million for the first nine months of 2013 to $9.3 million compared to $7.8 million for the first nine months of 2012. This growth is due to the previously mentioned investments in loan production personnel and facilities. The number of full time equivalent employees increased to 52 in September 2013 compared to 47 in September 2012. Non-interest income excluding gains on sale of investment securities was $174,000 in the third quarter of 2013, an increase of $49,000 or 39% over the third quarter of 2012. For the first nine months of 2013, non-interest income excluding gains on sales of securities was $458,000, an increase of $113,000 or 33% over the comparable period in 2012.
