FOLSOM, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 28, 2013) - Sierra Vista Bank (
The Bank continued to show a strong net interest margin of 5.07% for the fourth quarter 2012 and 4.92% for the year, fueled by a yield on earning assets of 5.29% and a cost of funds of 0.24%. "We are finding opportunity as our market area continues to experience slow but steady economic improvement," stated Gregory Patton, President & CEO.
In the third quarter of 2012 the Bank completed a Public Offering increasing capital by over $2 million with an additional $235,000 contributed during the fourth quarter of the year from an Accredited Investor whom the Bank has entered in to an agreement with for an additional $1.4 million subject to regulatory approval. The capital received has substantially strengthened the Bank's balance sheet and increased the capital level on December 31, 2012 to $10 million creating a leverage ratio of 12.48%. This compares to a leverage ratio of 9.02% on March 31, 2012 and 10.01% on December 31, 2011.
