United Security Bancshares, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Results

United Security Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: USBI) today reported its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011. Net loss attributable to USBI was $1.3 million, or $(0.22) per diluted share, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011, compared with net income of $351,000, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the same period of 2010.

United Security reported an increase in net interest income, non-interest income and net interest margin in the third quarter of 2011 compared with the prior year’s third quarter; however, higher costs related to the provision for loan losses and expenses associated with other real estate owned (OREO) were the primary factors in the loss for the third quarter. The provision for loan losses rose to $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2011, compared with $1.4 million in the third quarter of 2010. Impairment charges for OREO rose to $3.0 million in the third quarter of 2011, compared with $2.0 million in the third quarter of 2010.

United Security remains focused on reducing the level of non-performing loans and OREO as key drivers to improving future profitability. OREO declined to $23.0 million at the end of the third quarter 2011 due to real estate sales and write-downs that more than offset new additions to OREO. This was the third consecutive quarterly decrease in OREO. Loans 90-days past due declined to $3.1 million in the third quarter of 2011, compared with $5.0 million in the third quarter of 2010. In addition, non-accrual loans declined to $19.9 million at the end of the third quarter, compared with $28.9 million at the end of the second quarter of 2011. United Security remains focused on moving non-performing loans through the collection or foreclosure process to minimize potential losses and to protect its capital base.

United Security expects near-term earnings to be affected by the continued weakness in its real estate loan portfolio related to a slowdown in real estate sales and lower real estate values that affect loan demand and collateral values.
