FPBN Finalizes 2008 Results

SAN DIEGO, March 26, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 1st Pacific Bancorp (Nasdaq:FPBN), the holding company for 1st Pacific Bank of California ("1st Pacific"), today announced a change to its previously reported preliminary financial results. The 2008 preliminary financial results were initially reported in a press release dated January 30, 2009, and attached as an exhibit to 1st Pacific's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities Exchange Commission on the same date. The resulting adjusted net loss for the year ended December 31, 2008, was $21,859,985 or $4.41 per share. As previously announced, included in the net loss for the year was the non-cash write down of goodwill in the amount of $10,364,000. The write down of goodwill did not impact 1st Pacific's regulatory capital ratios or tangible capital.

The change to the previously reported preliminary results increased the provision for loan losses by $6,950,000 and no tax benefit was recorded related to this increased provision. The increased provision accounted for an increase in loan charge-offs of $6,977,078 due to recent recognition that one loan had deteriorated significantly and no longer appears to be collectible in an acceptable time frame.

"At the time of the original release of our 2008 financial results, management did consider this loan collectible," said President and Chairman of the Board Ron Carlson. "In light of current economic conditions, an independent third party loan review has been conducted during the last few weeks to validate the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses," Carlson added.

1st Pacific Bank of California is classified as "adequately capitalized" according to regulatory standards. Further information about 1st Pacific's year-end results will be available on the Form 10-K.
