CHULA VISTA, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--First PacTrust Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: BANC), the
holding company for Pacific Trust Bank , today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash
dividend of $0.12 per share on its outstanding common stock. The dividend, which was increased from $0.115 per
share, will be payable on January 3, 2012 to shareholders of record as of December 16, 2011.

Gregory Mitchell, president and CEO, said: “Following completion of a review of our capital position, balance sheet,
earnings forecasts and long-term growth projections, the board of directors elected to increase the quarterly cash
dividend from $0.115 to $0.12 per share. Based upon the mid-day trading price of $10.90 on December 1, 2011,
this increased dividend rate results in an annualized dividend yield of 4.4 percent.”

from the applicable market price.
