This transaction will almost triple our Nevada deposit base and will complement our current branch network nicely. Plumas Bank has had significant success serving the financial needs of small businesses in the Reno area and we anticipate that the addition of a Carson City location will allow us to attract new clients and grow our market share. We look forward to continuing to develop our presence throughout the northern Nevada region in the years ahead.”
