“Our continued focus on community banking in this difficult economy produced a 7% increase in total deposits over the past twelve months to $2.1 billion and a 3% increase in total net loans over the same period,” said Gary L. Nalbandian, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our third quarter was negatively impacted by an increase in our loan loss reserve and by charge-offs necessary as a result of updated appraisals of collateral and financial information during the period associated with seven loan relationships. Each of the loans in these relationships were originated in the years 2004 through 2008."
