Oak Valley Bancorp Reports 4th Quarter Results

OAKDALE, Calif., Jan. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oak Valley Bancorp (NASDAQ: OVLY) (the a??Companya??), the bank holding company for Oak Valley Community Bank and their Eastern Sierra Community Bank division, recently reported unaudited consolidated financial results. For the three months ended December 31, 2018, consolidated net income was $2,979,000 or $0.37 per diluted share (EPS), as compared to $3,165,000, or $0.39 EPS, for the prior quarter and $1,589,000, or $0.20 EPS for the same period a year ago. Consolidated net income for the year ended December 31, 2018 totaled $11,537,000, or $1.42 EPS, representing an increase of 26.9% compared to $9,094,000 or $1.13 EPS for 2017. AThe decrease from the prior quarter is the result of loan loss provisions recorded during the quarter corresponding to loan growth. The 2018 net income increases over the comparable periods of 2017 were mainly driven by strong earning asset growth and corresponding increases to net interest income.A Additionally, the Company realized a reduction in income tax provision in 2018 due to the lower federal income tax rate of 21%, following the passing of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which also resulted in a $983,000 charge to federal income tax provision in the fourth quarter of 2017, due to the revaluation of net deferred tax assets.AA

Net interest income was $10,179,000 and $38,567,000 for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively, compared to $9,944,000 during the prior quarter, $9,023,000 for the fourth quarter of 2017 and $34,180,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017. ANet interest margin increased to 3.96% and 3.89% for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively, as compared to 3.86% and 3.77% for the same periods of 2017. The net interest income and net interest margin increases in 2018 over the comparable prior periods were the result of strong growth of our loan and investment portfolios and the positive impact that rising interest rates have had on our variable rate earning assets. ANon-interest income for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2018 totaled $1,232,000 and $4,712,000, respectively, compared to $1,137,000 during the prior quarter, $1,193,000 for the fourth quarter of 2017, and $5,976,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017. AThe moderate increase in the fourth quarter was mainly due to FHLB dividend income and steady increases in service charges and fee income from our growing customer base.A The year-over-year decrease is mainly due to the $938,000 merger-related settlement payments recorded in the second quarter of 2017.Non-interest expense for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2018 totaled $6,921,000 and $27,378,000, respectively, compared to $6,820,000 during the prior quarter, $6,222,000 for the fourth quarter of 2017 and $24,565,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017. The increase compared to prior periods corresponds to staffing increases, partially related to the expansion into the new Sacramento Branch during the third quarter, and general operating costs related to servicing the growing loan and deposit portfolios.Total assets were $1.09 billion at December 31, 2018, an increase of $19.1 million over September 30, 2018 and $60.1 million over December 31, 2017. Gross loans were $711.9 million as of December 31, 2018, an increase of $48.7 million over September 30, 2018, and an increase of $49.4 million over December 31, 2017. The Companya??s total deposits were $986.5 million as of December 31, 2018, an increase of $12.1 million over September 30, 2018, and an increase of $47.6 million over December 31, 2017.a??Steady core deposit growth combined with third and fourth quarter loan growth have again helped push Company earnings to record level. We are very pleased with our year-end results for 2018,a?? stated Chris Courtney, President and CEO of the Company and the Bank. a??We are enthusiastic about our recent expansion into Sacramento and look forward to growth opportunities in the greater Sacramento region. As we expand our Northern California presence to better serve our clients, we naturally garner increased awareness of the Oak Valley brand, which enables us to introduce more Central Valley families and businesses to our premier style of community banking,a?? Courtney concluded.Non-performing assets as of December 31, 2018 were $920,000, or 0.08% of total assets, compared to $920,000, or 0.09% of total assets, as of September 30, 2018, and $1,564,000, or 0.15% at December 31, 2017.A The decrease in non-performing assets during 2018 is the result of payments on non-performing loans and an OREO property sale during the first quarter of 2018. AThe Company recorded provision for loan losses of $555,000 during the fourth quarter corresponding to strong fourth quarter loan growth. At the same time, credit quality improved slightly, which allowed for a decrease in the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of gross loans to 1.22% at December 31, 2018, compared to 1.23% at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017.Oak Valley Bancorp operates Oak Valley Community Bank & their Eastern Sierra Community Bank division, through which it offers a variety of loan and deposit products to individuals and small businesses.
