For the three months ended December 31, 2011, net income totaled $1.4 million compared to $1.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. After dividends and accretion on preferred stock, the Company reported net income available to common shareholders of $714,000, or $0.04 per diluted share for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. For the prior year fourth quarter, net income available to common shareholders totaled $391,000, or $0.02 per diluted share.

Pressley A. Ridgill, President and Chief Executive Officer of NewBridge Bancorp, commented: “Our operating results for the December quarter and year were excellent considering the difficult economic environment. The credit trends continued to improve, our efficiency initiatives were effective and our net interest margin climbed to a robust 4.25%. We have been profitable for nine consecutive quarters, and for the second consecutive year. Our operating results closely tracked our profit plan, both before and after credit related costs. Excluding credit costs and securities gains, pre-tax operating income totaled $28.0 million, which is $138,000 higher than prior year results, even though average earning assets fell $170.6 million from the prior year. Our return on average assets before tax and credit costs climbed from 1.64% in 2010 to 1.71% in 2011. For the December quarter, our income before tax, securities gains and credit costs was $8.0 million, or a 1.85% annualized return on average assets.”
