Net income per fully diluted share for fiscal year 2010 was $0.42 a 12.5% decrease from $0.48 per diluted share for fiscal year 2009. Similarly, earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010 were $0.07, as compared to $0.08 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2009.

Dann H. Bowman, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, "2010 was an exciting year for the Bank, with the opening of a new branch office in Rancho Cucamonga, and the purchased of a new headquarters building in Chino. Net earnings remained relatively strong during the year, with the Bank posting positive earnings each quarter. Recently, a number of loans were downgraded; however, at year-end the Bank had only one delinquent loan."

Financial Condition

Total deposits increased by 11.6% to $103.0 million at December 31, 2010 a substantial increase from $92.3 million at December 31, 2009. Core deposits increased 15.9%, from $74.7 million at December 31, 2009 to $86.6 million at December 31, 2010. The Bank's core deposits to total deposits remains at a very favorable 84.1%.

At December 31, 2010, total assets were $113.9 million, an increase of $10.4 million or 10.0% from December 31, 2009.

Gross loans declined slightly to $60.5 million at December 31, 2010 from $61.4 million at December 31, 2009, or a decrease of 1.4%, while total investments increased to $40.8 million from $33.3 million at December 31, 2009, a 22.7% increase.

The level of "non-performing" loans increased during the year from $1,493,919 to $4,167,573 or 6.86% of ending loans. 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 $440,723.

The level of loan charge-offs increased during the year from $205,387 in 2009 to $616,842 in 2010, or an increase of $411,455. It is important to note however, that of the charge-offs taken in 2010 $444,656 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.

The Company posted net interest income of $3,892,775 for the year ended December 31, 2010 as compared to $3,725,014 for the year ended December 31, 2009.

The Bank posted net interest income of $957,354 for the three months ended December 31, 2010 as compared to $992,405 for the three months ended December 31, 2009.

Non-interest income totaled $1,450,738, or an increase of 34.6% from $1, 077,558 earned during the year ended December 31, 2009. Service charges on deposit accounts increased $181,353, or 18.4% to $1,166,555 due to higher volume of returned items activity. Other miscellaneous income increased from $15,537 in 2009 to $207,499 for the year ended December 31, 2010 due to gain on sale of foreclosed equipment totaling $127,840 and a gain on sale of OREO netting at $51,700 for the year ended December 31, 2010

Non-interest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 totaled $412,987 or a 36.7% increase from the fourth quarter of 2009. Service charges on deposit accounts similarly increased 8.4% to $304,249 due to increase in the volume of overdraft and return item charges.
