Washington Banking Company Reports Profitable Second Quarter

Earns $2.8 million, or $0.18 per Diluted Share

OAK HARBOR, WA – July 26, 2012 – Washington Banking Company (NASDAQ: WBCO)

, the holding company for Whidbey Island Bank, today reported earnings in the second quarter of 2012 were $2.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared to $4.8 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2012, and $4.0 million, or $0.26 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2011. The Company experienced better than anticipated performance in its collection of the covered loan portfolio resulting in an additional $1.1 million FDIC-clawback liability expense. Coupled with a $400,000 Provision for Covered Loan Losses, pre-tax results were impacted by approximately $1.5 million, or $0.07 per share net of tax. In the first half of 2012, Washington Banking’s net income totaled $7.6 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, compared to $7.0 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, which included its last $1.1 million preferred dividend payment in the first half a year ago.

“In addition to the gains we recorded at the time of the two FDIC transactions in 2010, we also benefit from the strong contribution to our margin that these covered loans produce,” said Jack Wagner, President and Chief Executive Officer. “However, since our forecasted losses on this portfolio continue to decline, we recorded an increase to the clawback liability this quarter.”

“The low interest rate environment is fueling the mortgage loan pipeline to higher and higher levels,” said Bryan McDonald, Whidbey Island Bank’s President and CEO. “And our calling activities and high quality staff are showing good results in a very competitive market place. We are generating a consistently strong number of new accounts, and believe we are becoming the primary bank for more and more of our customers. This is providing higher transaction volumes and generating strong quarter-over-quarter gains in electronic banking income.”
