Non-Reliance on Previous Financials, Audits or Interim Review

Item 4.02. Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.

On November 21, 2011, management of United Security Bancshares ("Bancshares"), and subsequently, its Audit Committee , determined that its financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, as included in Bancshares's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2011, should no longer be relied upon due to an expected approximately $5.6 million increase in the provision for loan losses and related changes to the allowance for loan losses to correct an error in accounting for our allowance for loan losses discovered as a result of an interim joint examination of United Security Bank (the "Bank"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bancshares, by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (the "FRB") and the California Department of Financial Institutions (the "CDFI"). Consequently, Bancshares intends to file an amendment to its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2011, as soon as reasonably practicable, to give effect to the expected increase in the provision and allowance for loan losses.

As of the date of this filing and based on Bancshares's initial estimates, the following changes to the previously reported financial results are anticipated:

? Bancshares' net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2011, is expected to increase from $3.0 million to approximately $6.3 million. Fully-diluted earnings per share ("EPS") for the three months ended June 30, 2011, originally reported to be a loss of $0.23, are expected to change to a loss of approximately $0.48. Due to the adjustments in the second quarter of 2011 financial results, Bancshares's net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2011, is expected to increase from $2.7 million to $6.0 million, and EPS for the six months ended June 30, 2011, originally reported at a loss of $0.20, is now projected to be a loss of approximately $0.45;

? The provision for loan losses for the six months ended June 30, 2011 is expected to increase from $4.4 million to approximately $10.0 million. As a result of the increased provision for loan losses net of charge-offs, the allowance for loan losses as of June 30, 2011 is expected to decrease slightly to approximately $13.9 million, or 3.28% of loans, compared to the originally reported amount of $14.3 million, or 3.33% of gross loans;

? Impaired loans, net of specific reserves, will decrease from $36.6 million to approximately $34.6 million, as of June 30, 2011. The reduction is due to charge-offs of $6.06 million against specific reserves for loss of $4.1 million;

? Net charge-offs for the second quarter of 2011, will increase from $6.6 million to approximately $12.7 million;

? Loans, net of unearned income and the allowance for loan losses, will decline to approximately $409.5 million from the previously reported level of $415.2 million and total assets will decline to $655 million from the previously reported level of $659 million.

The adjustments described above are expected to result in a decrease in total shareholders' equity at June 30, 2011 of approximately $3.3 million to approximately $66.8million from the previously reported amount of $70.1 million. On a preliminary basis, Bancshares estimates that the Bank's leverage ratio, tier 1 risk-based capital ratio and total risk-based capital ratio will not be lower than 9.32%, 11.89% and 13.15%, respectively, at June 30, 2011 and remain in compliance with the consent order.

In addition, the consent orders (Written Agreement and Final Order), issued to the Bank by the FRB and CDFI, dated March 23, 2010 and May 20, 2010 respectively, (the "Consent Orders"), requires the Bank to maintain an adequate allowance for loan and lease losses that is consistent with generally accepted accounting principles and supervisory guidance. Pursuant to the changes to the allowance for loan losses summarized above, the Bank is in compliance with the conent orders.

The consolidated financial statements of the Corporation as of and for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2011 were, and as restated will be, prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future.
As previously reported in Bancshares' Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2011, management has concluded that the Corporation's disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting were not effective as of June 30, 2011, as a result of a material weakness in the Corporation's internal controls.

Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2011 and Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2011 will contain a discussion of such material weakness and steps that will be taken to address them.

4.02(b) Management was advised by its independent accountant, Moss Adams LLP, action should be taken to prevent future reliance on previously issued financial financials statements.

(1) Moss Adam LLP advised management on November 14, 2011;

(2) The 10-Q for the period ending June 30, 2011 should no longer be relied upon;

(3) Moss Adams LLP informed management it concluded that the 10-Q for June 30, 2011 should be amended;

(4) The audit committee discussed with the independent accountant the matters disclosed in the filing pursuant to this Item 4.02(b) on November 21, 2011.
