First National Bank of Northern California Reports Entering Into a Memorandum of Mutual Agreement to Amend Certain Salary Continuation Agreements

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2015) - FNB Bancorp (OTCQB: FNBG), parent company of First National Bank of Northern California (the "Bank"), today announced the signing of a "Memorandum of Mutual Agreement to Amend Certain Salary Continuation Agreements." This agreement will affect certain Amendments that are currently being drafted into the existing Salary Continuation Agreements for the Bank's President, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and Chief Lending Officer.

"The signing of the Memorandum of Mutual Agreement to Amend Certain Salary Continuation Agreements for four executive officers of the Bank was completed in order to: (1) insure the Salary Continuation agreements are tax compliant with all tax regulations, including IRS code section 409A and 280g; (2) provide a better matching of benefit vesting to the service provided to the Bank by the four named executives; (3) provide the Bank with services of the four named executives for a time certain into the future; and (4) insure the actual benefits stated in the existing Salary Continuation Agreements for the four named executives did not change. These changes provide additional incentives to the executives to maintain their employment with the Bank during the revised vesting period which will allow the Bank to continue to grow organically and through thoughtful acquisitions. We look forward with anticipation to the upcoming 2016 calendar year," stated Tom McGraw, CEO.
