For the full year ended December 31, 2011 the company posted a consolidated net income of $589,766, an increase of 33.6% over net income of $441,401 for the year end 2011. Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 decreased 35.8% to $107,796 from $167,928 for quarter ended December 31, 2011. Net income per basic share and fully diluted share was $0.72 for the year ended December 31, 2012 a 22.0% increase over $0.59 per share for the year ended December 31, 2011. Earnings basic share and diluted share for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012 were $0.13, as compared to $0.22 for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Dann H. Bowman, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, "We are very pleased to report that the Company had an excellent year, with net earnings increasing 33% over last year and loan quality improving.  At year-end the Bank had only one delinquent loan; and though economic conditions have not fully recovered, we are becoming increasingly optimistic regarding the economy and the Inland Empire Region in general. Many of our borrowers are reporting higher earnings and improved business conditions.  During the year the Bank's deposits increased 4.1% and loans increased 9.1%. Though the economy is not out of the woods yet, we believe the Bank is well positioned to benefit from the improved economic and business conditions."

Financial Condition

Non-interest bearing deposits increased 3.5% to $48.8 million at December 31, 2012 from $47.2 million at December 31, 2011. Total deposits at December 31, 2012 totaled $102.2 million, an increase of 4.1% from $98.1 million at December 31, 2011. Core deposits decreased 0.8%, to $85.9 million at December 31, 2011 from $86.6 million at December 31, 2010. The Bank's core deposits to total deposits increased to a very favorable 89.8% of total deposits at December 31, 2012 from 89.6% at December 31, 2011.

At December 31, 2012, total assets were $114.6 million, an increase of $4.9 million or 4.5% from 109.7 million at December 31, 2011.

Gross loans increased to $62.0 million at December 31, 2012 from $56.8 million at December 31, 2011, or an increase of 9.1%, and total investments and Federal funds sold increased slightly to $41.4 million from $40.1 million at December 31, 2011, a 3.2% decrease.

The level of "non-performing" loans decreased during the year to $1.2 million at December 31, 2012 from $3.6 million at December 31, 2011 or a 66.3% decrease. Many of these loans have been graded as non-performing based on information contained in the borrower's income tax returns. At year-end all of the non-performing loans except one, were current on their scheduled payments. At year-end the Bank had only one loan which was more than 30 days delinquent for $517,916.

The level of net loan charge-offs increased during the year to $219,428 in 2012 from $185,909 in 2011, or an increase of $33,529. Net loan loss as a percent of gross loans was 0.35% and 0.33% for years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. It is important to note, however, that of the charge-offs taken in 2012 of $82,744 and in 2011 of $127,035 were charge-offs against loans that were paying as agreed. In many cases these charge-offs were taken to reflect reduced real estate collateral values.

Gain on sale of foreclosed assets increased to $93,871 in 2012 from $61,151 for the year ended December 31, 2011 due to gain on sale OREO.
