Oak Valley Community Bank Reports 2nd Quarter Results

OAKDALE, CA--(Marketwire - July 18, 2007) - Oak Valley Community Bank, traded as (OTCBB: OVYB) on the bulletin board, reported net income of $1,003,000 or $0.14 per diluted share, for the second quarter ending June 30, 2007; a 19.5% increase in net income from the $840,000, for the same period last year. For the six month period ending June 30, 2007 net income was $2,005,000 compared to last year's $1,679,000; an increase of 19.4%. Total assets grew to over $441.3 million at June 30, 2007, an increase of $32.2 million, or 7.9%, over June 30, 2006. Gross loans increased by $35.0 million, to $376.7 million as of June 30, 2007, an increase of 10.2% over June 30, 2006. The Bank's total deposits were $364.2 million on June 30, 2007, which is a decrease of $0.8 million, or 0.2% below June 30, 2006.

"Second quarter marked another solid performance for Oak Valley Community Bank. Net income continues to increase as a result of our ongoing focus on relationship banking with strong year over year loan volume and a continually improving deposit mix. Competition for deposits while strong, has been offset to some degree by the bank's rebalancing its deposits to reward full deposit relationships and a reflection of our willingness to allow some higher cost transaction deposits to run-off," stated Ron Martin, CEO. "As we approach the remaining half of the year, we will stay true to our commitment to old-fashioned service and relationship banking which we know are vital to our long-term success," he concluded.

Established in 1991, Oak Valley Community Bank offers a variety of loan and deposit products dedicated to serving the needs of individuals and small businesses. The Bank currently operates through 12 conveniently located branches: Oakdale, Escalon, Sonora, Turlock, Stockton, Patterson, Ripon, two branches in Modesto, and three branches in their Eastern Sierra Division, which include Bridgeport, Mammoth Lakes and Bishop.
