GLENDALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Americas United Bank (OTCQB: AUNB) today announced its unaudited results of operations for the first quarter and three-month period ended March 31, 2013. For the quarter, Americas United Bank earned $56,000, or $0.02 per share, compared to net income of $129,000, or $0.04 per share for 2012.
Total assets were $111.8 million at quarter end, down slightly from $114.6 million at year-end and up from $104.5 million at March 31, 2012. Total loans were $71.9 million at quarter-end, up from $70.6 million at year-end 2012, and up from $69.1 million at March 31, 2012.

"We had modest core earnings this quarter and are focused on building our balance sheet with quality earning assets. We also paid back a large advance from the Federal Home Loan Bank that caused a slight reduction in our total assets at quarter-end. When comparing our earnings to the prior year quarter, there was some early loan prepayment activity that impacted the results both in loans outstanding and interest income. We are however, building the loan portfolio and adding to the business development team to grow the Bank. The positive earnings are the results of the collective efforts of our team and we look forward to our continued success going forward," said Adriana M. Boeka, President and Chief Executive Officer.
