The bank continues to reflect quarterly profitability and we are confident our progress will continue despite the current economic challenges. The bank's loan portfolio continues to perform satisfactorily, which reflects management's conservative underwriting.

Bank of Santa Clarita has not been involved in originating single family mortgages and as such has not been impacted by the turmoil in the related credit markets."
