SCVBank Announces Cash Dividend

Santa Paula, CA.  January 8, 2009- Santa Clara Valley Bank (SCVBank; OTC BB: SCVE.OB) today announced a cash dividend of $.10 per share payable January 20, 2009 to shareholders of record as of December 26, 2008.  This is SCVBank’s first dividend declaration.

Chairman Guy Cole remarked, “We are very proud to be able to announce a dividend at this time.  The dividend represents the board’s gratitude to our shareholders for their loyalty and commitment and reaffirms the strength of the Bank’s capital position.  While so many other financial institutions have either failed, or cut back their dividends, the approval of a new dividend reflects SCVBank's long-term strategy of providing conservative, relationship- based credit.”

Michael D. Hause, President and CEO stated, “The dividend goes hand-in-hand with our Five- Star “Superior” performing bank rating by BauerFinancial, Inc.  At year-end 2008, the Bank’s assets were $121.0 million”.
