About Presidio Bank

Founded in the summer of 2006, Presidio Bank (OTCBB:PDOB) was the first new locally owned and managed commercial bank in San Francisco in over 20 years. With initial equity capital of $40 million, it was also the largest initial capitalization of a new bank in California history. Presidio Bank offers successful small and medium-sized Bay Area businesses a comprehensive array of commercial banking products and professional services. And because Presidio Bank is small, it can provide clients with the kind of highly individualized professional service normally attributed to community banks. And because Presidio Bank has the capital base of a larger bank, it can serve the credit and financial needs of businesses ordinarily too large for a newly established community bank. Presidio Bank services the financial needs of a variety of commercial customers, including non-profit organizations, real estate investors and developers, professional service firms, and their owners, partners, executives, and others.

Presidio Bank has its headquarters at One Montgomery Street, Suite 2300, San Francisco, California 94104; telephone: 415.229.8400, or visit us on the web at www.presidiobank.com.
