“Our plan is to grow and thrive in Sonoma County for many years to come. This is our community and our strategy is to continue to focus on our existing relationships to create a strong word of mouth reference referral system to attract new deposit and loan customers. Our employees contribute in so many ways and are the key to our success,” said Jim Brush, President and CEO.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, Summit State Bank had net income available for common stockholders of $1,254,000, or diluted earnings per share of $0.26 compared to $1,712,000 in net income available for common stockholders, or $0.35 diluted earnings per share, for the same quarter in 2015. The six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 had net income available for common stockholders of $2,582,000 and $3,399,000, or diluted earnings per share of $0.53 and $0.70, respectively.

The second quarter of 2016 included net securities gains of $555,000 which were realized when bonds in the Bank’s portfolio received early calls and employee severance expenses related to the former President and other employees of $538,000. The second quarter of 2015 benefited from a reversal of the allowance for loan losses of $800,000.

The six months ended June 30, 2016, benefited from $688,000 in net securities gains from early calls and was reduced by $538,000 in employee severance expense. The six months ended June 30, 2015 benefited from the gain on sale of foreclosed property of $1,125,000 and the reversal of $800,000 in the allowance for loan losses.

Annualized return on average assets for the second quarter of 2016 was 0.98% and annualized return on average common equity was 8.54%. The Bank’s efficiency ratio was 68.9% and the net interest margin was 3.78% during the second quarter of 2016. The six months ended June 30, 2016, had an annualized return on average assets of 1.00% and return on average common equity of 8.84%. The six-month period efficiency ratio was 63.4% and net interest margin was 3.73%. The annualized return on average assets for the second quarter and six months of 2015, which included the benefits of $1,125,000 in gain on sale of foreclosed property and $800,000 in allowance for loan losses reversal, was 1.47% and 1.49%, respectively. The return on average common equity for the two periods of 2015 was 12.28% and 12.45%. The net interest margin and efficiency ratio for the second quarter 2015 was 3.73% and 54.5% and for the first six months of 2015 were 3.74% and 51.3%.

Net interest income increased 9.3% between the quarters to $4,756,000 in 2016 compared to $4,351,000 in the second quarter of 2015. The increase was primarily due to higher volume of loans and a slight increase in the net interest margin. Net loans increased to $368 million at June 30, 2016 compared to $317 million at June 30, 2015.

Non-interest expense increased for the second quarter and first six months of 2016 compared to same periods in 2015 primarily due to the employee severance expense, lower deferred costs from loans originated during the period, and higher expenses related to data processing and marketing. A donation of $100,000 was made to the Saralee and Richard Kunde Barn at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds.

“The Bank had some onetime expenses, in particular the change in executive management which raised expenses for the quarter,” said Dennis Kelley, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President.

Deposits increased 10% between June 30, 2016 and 2015, with the increase primarily in demand deposit accounts which increased 25% at June 30, 2016 over June 30, 2015.

Nonperforming assets declined to $2,325,000 and represented 0.45% of assets at June 30, 2016 compared to $2,690,000 at March 31, 2016, but represented an increase compared to $1,440,000 at June 30, 2015.

Total assets at June 30, 2016 were $518 million, a 5.2% increase over the $492 million on June 30, 2015.
