“As an industry, we are all struggling to find quality loans. Our management group and lending team continue to maintain a very disciplined approach. In addition, many of our construction lending customers have completed and sold existing projects; however, they are waiting to start new projects,” reported Allen R. Christenson, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer. Continuing, Mr. Christenson stated, “We believe it is best to remain patient while the economy struggles to improve. While continuing to look for appropriate lending opportunities, we have focused our efforts on building core deposit relationships, as evidenced by the 27.4% year-to-date increase in deposits.” Regarding the opening of the bank’s new branch in the Inland Empire Region of Southern California, Mr. Christenson reported “As expected with a startup operation, the new branch is currently operating at a loss. Excluding the operating losses of the new branch, the Company’s net income for the three and six month periods ending June 30, 2011 total $150,000 and $263,000, respectively.”
