First National Bank of Northern California Reports Second Quarter 2015 Earnings of $0.47 per Diluted Share

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2015) - FNB Bancorp (OTCQB: FNBG), parent company of First National Bank of Northern California (the "Bank"), today announced net earnings available to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2015 of $2,071,000 or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to net earnings available to common shareholders of $1,629,000 or $0.37 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2014. During the second quarter of 2015, total assets of FNB Bancorp surpassed the one billion dollar threshold. Deposits increased more than eighty-eight million dollars during this time period.

"The second quarter of 2015 was a quarter of significant growth for the Bank. About $18.5 million of the DDA account balance increase during the quarter is related to a single customer relationship that is expected to disburse these same dollars out of the Bank early in the third quarter. The increase of more than $50 million in our Savings and Money Market account balances during the quarter is related to a single customer relationship that is not expected to keep these additional funds with the Bank long term. The majority of the increase in the deposit base is reflected in the more than $61 million increase in our cash and cash equivalents during the quarter. The remainder of the deposit increase has been invested in available for sale securities during the quarter. Loan production was strong during the second quarter, but pay downs and pay offs within the loan portfolio caused our loan portfolio to decline in overall size during the quarter and for the first six months of 2015," stated Tom McGraw, CEO.

"Net interest margins declined during the second quarter of 2015 primarily due to new loan production originated at interest rates that were lower than existing rates on paid off loans and a decline in the proportion of interest earning assets that were deployed within our loan portfolio. Management continues to pursue loan growth thoughtfully in a prudent and conservative fashion. The quality of our loan portfolio and our earnings stream are evidence of this commitment. During the second quarter of 2015, our earnings stream also benefited from an increase in noninterest income that was primarily the result of a significant Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco dividend indirectly related to a $459 million dollar legal settlement entered into by the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco with certain lenders involved in $19.1 billion dollars of mortgage related investment securities purchased by the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco from mid-2004 to 2008. Noninterest expenses declined during the quarter due primarily to continued reductions in legal and loan collection related costs," continued Tom McGraw.

"Our previously announced purchase of America California Bank is on schedule to close late in the third quarter of 2015. By combining the talents and resources of America California Bank with and into First National Bank of Northern California, we strive to position ourselves to service the combined customer base of both institutions in the San Francisco financial district from our existing Battery Street branch location and to increase the scale of our operations. We continue to focus our efforts on growing our Company through a combination of strategic acquisitions and organic growth in San Francisco and on the San Francisco peninsula," stated Tom McGraw.
