"A deteriorating economy and related challenges in our loan portfolio led to this agreement," said bank President and CEO Richard Loupe.
"We have a good working relationship with the regulators and are moving forward proactively with implementing the agreement. Our customers are continuing to receive the one-on-one service, local decision making and innovative financial solutions that they expect and deserve."
All Valley Community Bank depositors remain insured up to the $250,000 by the FDIC, with non-interest-bearing accounts presently having unlimited coverage. In addition to its Pleasanton office, the bank has offices in Livermore and San Jose, with a loan production office in Santa Cruz.
"Our executive team already has a plan in place to address most of the matters listed in the agreement," said Phillip Boyce, chairman of the bank's board of directors.
"A special committee of the board will work with management on this plan and other matters addressed in the agreement."
"We are well capitalized by regulatory standards, and our net interest margin remains very strong," Loupe continued. "The bank is sound by several other key measures such as core deposit growth and assets per employee. We will execute our plan and move forward, with every intention and expectation of thriving as conditions improve."
Loupe added that banks nationwide have been impacted by an economy that has been particularly hard on commercial and residential real estate values. Hundreds of banks have been subject to agreements with the OCC, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or state banking departments.
