Dann H.

Financial Condition
Non-interest bearing deposits increased 15.9% to $56.6 million at December 31, 2013 from $48.8 million at December 31, 2012. Total deposits at December 31, 2013 totaled $109.6 million, an increase of 7.3% from $102.2 million at December 31, 2012. Core deposits increased 10.3%, to $101.2 million at December 31, 2013 from $91.7 million at December 31, 2012. The Bank's core deposits to total deposits increased to a very favorable 92.3% of total deposits at December 31, 2013 from 89.8% at December 31, 2012.

At December 31, 2013, total assets were $123.1 million, an increase of $8.5 million or 7.4% from 114.6 million at December 31, 2012.

Gross loans increased to $64.4 million at December 31, 2013 from $62.0 million at December 31, 2012, or an increase of 3.9%, and total investments and Federal funds sold increased to $45.4 million from $41.4 million at December 31, 2012, a 9.5% increase.

The level of "non-performing" loans decreased during the year to one loan at $207,942 at December 31, 2013, from six loans totaling $1.2 million at December 31, 2012 or an 82.9% decrease.

Net loan loss (recovery) as a percent of gross loans was (0.09%) and 0.35% for years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. It is important to note, however, that the charge-offs taken in 2013 of $79,503 and in 2012 of $287,366, were charge-offs against loans that were paying as agreed.

The Company posted net interest income of $4,092,972 for the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to $3,654,006 for the year ended December 31, 2012. Average interest-earning assets were $105.3 million with average interest-bearing liabilities of $53.4 million yielding a net interest margin of 3.89% for the year ended December 31, 2013; as compared to average interest-earning assets of $98.2 million with average interest-bearing liabilities of $53.9 million, yielding a net interest margin of 3.73% for the year ended December 31, 2012.

The Bank posted net interest income of $1,084,011 for the three months ended December 31, 2013 as compared to $956,008 for the three months ended December 31, 2012.

Non-interest income totaled $1,497,094, or an increase of 16.5% from $1,436,537, earned in the year ended December 31, 2012. Service charges on deposit accounts increased $148,465 or 12.9% to $1,299,094 in 2013 due the reversal of $21,943 of collected income from customers with loans on non-accrual status. Gain on sale of foreclosed assets was $61,151 for the year ended December 31, 2012 while in 2013, the Bank had no foreclosed assets and therefore no gain.

Non-interest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 totaled $390,854 or a 16.5% increase from the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase is due mainly to the recognition in income from customers with loans on non-accrual, while in 2012 no income was recognized.

General and administrative expenses were $4,082,038 for the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to $4,045,169 for the year ended December 31, 2012.
