SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Board of Directors of American River Bankshares (NASDAQ:AMRB), announced the re-election of all eight Director nominees at its Annual Meeting held Thursday, May 18 in Rancho Cordova, California.

Shareholders re-elected Kimberly A. Box, Charles D. Fite, Jeffery Owensby, William A. Robotham, David T. Taber, Stephen H. Waks, Philip A. Wright and Michael A. Ziegler as Directors, each of whose current term expired at the 2017 Annual Meeting and their new term will expire in 2018.

The shareholders also approved the advisory vote concerning named executive officer compensation and the frequency of future votes for executive officer compensation. In addition, the selection of Crowe Horwath LLP as independent registered public accountants for American River Bankshares was ratified by a majority of votes cast.

In his annual address to shareholders, David Taber, President and CEO of American River Bankshares, reviewed the Company’s performance in 2016 and vision for the coming year.

“American River Bank had a strong year,” said Taber.  “We are pleased to report ongoing profitable growth resulting from increases in both loans and deposits, diligent management of overhead and successful efforts in loan recoveries.”

Taber continued, “This year we reinstated our cash dividend following a 43% appreciation in our shares last year. The leaders and team of American River Bank are our greatest asset. We celebrate their accomplishments and recognize that sustained growth requires continued pursuit of increased client satisfaction, drive for growth and focus on profitability.”

He noted that as of December 31, 2016, success indicators included 12% growth in our loan portfolio and an increase of $16 million in core deposits.  $1.3 million in loan recoveries allowed the same number as a reduction to our provision for loan losses and overhead was reduced modestly in 2016 but was a full million dollars lower than just two years ago. These were the key contributing factors in 2016 to the Company’s 34% increase in EPS.
