Severn Bancorp, Inc. Announces First Quarter Earnings

ANNAPOLIS, Md., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Severn Bancorp, Inc., (Nasdaq: SVBI) parent company of Severn Savings Bank, FSB ("Severn"), today announced net income of $867,000 or $.03 per share for the first quarter of 2014, an increase of approximately 40% compared to net income of $621,000 or $.03 per share for first quarter of 2013. Results reported also represent a significant increase in earnings compared to a net loss of $5,470,000 or $(.58) per share for the fourth quarter of 2013. Earnings per share is calculated using net income available for common shareholders, which is net income less preferred stock dividends.

"We are encouraged to be able to report a profit for this first quarter after successfully concluding almost $50 million of problem asset sales in late 2013," stated Alan J. Hyatt, president and chief executive officer. Mr. Hyatt continued, "Severn made decisions to position the bank for success as one of the few remaining local community banks, and this is a first step in the right direction. We are now dedicated to expanding technology and service offerings rather than dealing with problems. Severn is proud to continue the tradition of offering the personal service that residents and business owners in Anne Arundel County have come to expect from a community bank."
