Founders Community Bank Announces Second Quarter Earnings

Founders Community Bank Announces Second Quarter Earnings

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., July 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Founders Community Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Founders Bancorp (OTCBB: FBCP) today reported net income of $282 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, up 73.0 percent from $163 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Year to date earnings were also up to $498 thousand from $352 thousand in 2012, an increase of 41.4 percent.

"Founders Community Bank's impressive performance during the second quarter of 2013 was due to continued focus on our core business customers.  While other banks have seen reductions in their customer base, we continue to thrive and expand.  In a one year period of June 30, 2012 to June 30, 2013, the Bank's assets grew $27.6 million or 21.7 percent.  This growth was not at the cost of quality as the Bank attracted several well-known San Luis Obispo County customers and ended the quarter on a strong lending note - with no loan charge offs, no non-accruals and no loans 30 days or more past due," said Chief Executive Officer Thomas J. Sherman

"We believe that San Luis Obispo County is poised for positive and sustainable economic growth.  The Bank, its Board of Directors and employees are here to assist members of the community during this time of growth."
