Pacific Continental Corporation Increases Cash Dividend For Second Consecutive Quarter

EUGENE, Ore., Nov. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Continental Corporation (Nasdaq: PCBK), the holding company of Pacific Continental Bank, today announced the board of directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share payable December 15, 2011, to shareholders of record on December 5, 2011. The $0.05 per share dividend is an increase of $0.02 per share over the company's September 2011 cash dividend payment.

Hal Brown, Pacific Continental's chief executive officer, commented, "The consecutive increase in our quarterly cash dividend reflects the company's improving profitability and continued strong capital position."

As with all of Pacific Continental's dividends, the board reviews a broad range of balance sheet and other performance metrics, including recent and prospective operating performance, the level of accumulated retained earnings, payout ratios, loan concentrations and other company-wide risks, and competitive yield assessments.  

Pacific Continental's board will continue to review dividend considerations so that cash dividends, when and if declared, will typically be paid in March, June, September and December of each year.
