Heritage Commerce Corp Reports Net Income For Third Quarter 2010

Credit Quality Improves with a Reduction in Net Charge-offs and Loan Loss Provision

Bank Reports Strong Capital and Liquidity to Support Future Growth

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heritage Commerce Corp (Nasdaq:HTBK), the holding company ("the Company") for Heritage Bank of Commerce ("the Bank"), today reported third quarter 2010 net income of $651,000, compared to a net loss of $2.1 million in the third quarter a year ago, and a net loss of $54.1 million in the preceding quarter. For the third quarter of 2010, a $2.1 million provision for loan losses, a $1.1 million write-down of loans held-for-sale, and an $887,000 loss on the sale of other loans, was partially offset by a $1.5 million gain on sale of securities. After accrued dividends on preferred stock, the Company reported net income allocable to common shareholders of $458,000, or $0.01 per average diluted common share, for the third quarter of 2010. In the third quarter of 2009, the net loss allocable to common shareholders was $2.7 million, or ($0.23) per average diluted common share. For the nine months ended September 30, 2010, the net loss allocable to common shareholders was $58.9 million, or ($4.67) per average diluted common share, which included a $43.2 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge in the second quarter of 2010. For the nine months ended September 30, 2009, the net loss allocable to common shareholders was $13.2 million, or ($1.12) per average diluted common share.  The weighted average diluted common shares for the third quarter of 2010 and first nine months of 2010 were 31,830,372 and 12,623,743, respectively. 

"Our return to profitability in the third quarter of 2010 reflects the hard work of our team to address the difficulties encountered due to the challenging economic environment of the past two years and the slow economic recovery now underway," said Walter Kaczmarek, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our $75 million capital raise in the second quarter of 2010 and aggressive management of problem assets has resulted in strong capital and liquidity ratios, positioning us for future growth."
