OAKDALE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 17, 2013) - Oak Valley Bancorp (
Total assets were $648.4 million at March 31, 2013, an increase of $54.9 million, or 9.3%, from March 31, 2012. Gross loans decreased by $2.6 million, to $390.0 million as of March 31, 2013, a decrease of 0.7% from March 31, 2012. The Bank's total deposits were $580.2 million as of March 31, 2013, an increase of $61.5 million, or 11.9% over March 31, 2012.
Net interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $5.8 million, decreasing by $415,000, or 6.6% from $6.3 million for the same period last year. The net interest margin for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was 4.05%, compared to 4.15% for the three months prior and 4.67% for the same period last year.
"Margin compression will continue to play a considerable role in banking sector profitability this year, however, we remain encouraged by signs of strengthening commercial loan demand," stated Ron Martin, CEO. "After experiencing early loan paydowns in January, commercial borrowing activity gained momentum and we replaced the majority of those loan balances by quarter-end," Martin concluded
Non-interest expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 totaled $4.6 million, essentially flat compared to the same period the previous year. While full time equivalent staffing rose to 134 from 126 for the same period a year ago, total non-interest expense remained stable as strong loan production led to an increase in deferred cost which helped offset salary expense.
The provision for loan losses during the three months ended March 31, 2013, was $100,000, compared to $300,000 during the same quarter of last year. The ratio of loan loss reserves to gross loans for the quarter was 1.99%, compared to 2.04% for the three months prior and 1.98% for the same period last year. As of March 31, 2013 non-performing assets were $6.4 million or 0.99% of total assets, compared to $6.7 million or 1.12% of total assets as of March 31, 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.
