Chairman’s Statement

Commenting on the Company’s financial results, Chairman Gary L. Nalbandian stated “our continued focus on community banking in this difficult economy produced an 11% increase in total deposits over the previous twelve months to $1.93 billion. Especially noteworthy was our continued growth in core demand deposits of $203.0 million, or 17%, over the same period. Our third quarter was negatively impacted by an increase in our loan loss reserve and by charge-offs of nonperforming loans necessary to strengthen our future operations” said Nalbandian. “We are encouraged by the stabilization in the asset quality of our loan portfolio and believe our efforts this quarter to reduce our nonperforming assets should allow us to return to a more normalized level of loan loss provisions and therefore improved profitability in future quarters.”
