Heritage Commerce Corp (Nasdaq:HTBK), the holding company (“the Company” or “HCC”) for Heritage Bank of Commerce (“the Bank” or “HBC”), today reported net income increased 28% to $2.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $2.1 million for the second quarter of 2011. Loan and deposit growth and continued improvements in asset quality contributed to solid profitability in the second quarter and in the first six months of 2012.

Following the redemption of its Series A Preferred Stock in the first quarter of 2012, the Company does not have any preferred dividends and discount accretion on preferred stock in the second quarter of 2012. Net income available to common shareholders was $2.7 million, or $0.08 per average diluted common share, for the second quarter of 2012. After accrued dividends and discount accretion on preferred stock of $604,000, net income available to common shareholders was $1.5 million, or $0.05 per average diluted common share, for the second quarter a year ago. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, net income available to common shareholders was $3.5 million, or $0.11 per average diluted common share, up from $2.5 million, or $0.08 per average diluted common share, for the same period a year ago. All results are unaudited.

“The Company experienced significant loan growth and continued deposit growth during the second quarter of 2012,” said Walter Kaczmarek, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The growth we experienced was due to hard work performed in previous quarters by our lending staff that finally closed and funded. Our second quarter income marks our eighth consecutive quarter of profitability. Despite our strong second quarter success, we continue to be concerned about the potentially negative effects of the weak national and international economies.”
