share.The decrease of $107,000 in net operating income for the first quarter
2014 compared to the same period in 2013 was comprised primarily of the higher
loan loss provision and higher operating expenses partially offset by higher
net interest margin partially.Loan loss provision and operating expenses were
higher primarily due organic loan and deposit growth.

implement organic growth initiatives has been demonstrated in an increasing
trend in both loan and deposit balances. We will continue to execute on these
organic initiatives as we continue to look for growth opportunities through
mergers and external growth."

Bank of San Joaquin and the opportunity to serve the San Joaquin community."
