(the “Bank”), announced unaudited net income available to common shareholders of $91,000, or $.07 per diluted shared, for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to a net loss of ($454,000), or ($.35) per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2011.

The Company reported net income available to common shareholders of $405,000, or $.31 per diluted shared, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to a net loss attributable to common shareholders of ($34,000), or ($.03) per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, net interest income was $7.3 million, compared to $7.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. Noninterest income increased to $1.9 million for the period ended September 30, 2012, compared to $1.0 million for the same period ended September 30, 2011. The increase in noninterest income is primarily attributable to a $433,000 gain on the sale of investments, compared to a loss of ($78,000) for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. Additionally, fees from presold mortgages increased $393,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Noninterest expenses increased $769,000 to $8.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $7.8 million at September 30, 2011. The increase in expenses is primarily due to the costs associated with foreclosed real estate.

The Company’s unaudited consolidated total assets decreased $11.3 million to $311.6 million at September 30, 2012, compared to $322.9 million at December 31, 2011. The decrease in the balance sheet is primarily due to a reduction in borrowings and brokered deposits. Total borrowings decreased $6.7 million from $50.1 million at December 31, 2011, to $43.4 million at September 30, 2012. Total deposits have decreased $6.0 million to $240.5 million at September 30, 2012, compared to $246.5 million at December 31, 2011. The decrease in deposits includes an $8.1 million decrease in brokered deposits.

Net charge offs for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $218,000, compared to net charge offs of $1.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2012 totaled $3.4 million, or 1.73% of all outstanding loans.

The Company’s profitability, capital levels and asset quality are factors that are considered in determining whether to resume dividend payments.
