South Atlantic Bank Reports First Quarter Earnings

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C., April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- South Atlantic Bancshares, Inc., parent of South Atlantic Bank, today reported net income of $374,663 or $0.12 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2014, an increase of 1.5% when compared to the $369,175 or $0.12 per diluted share reported for the same period a year ago. The bank's performance in the first quarter continued its string of consecutive quarterly profits that began with the first quarter of 2011.

"The year is off to a good start," said K. Wayne Wicker, South Atlantic Bank chairman and chief executive officer. "We maintained profitability while managing the expenses associated with our expansion efforts of late last year. During the fourth quarter 2013, we added locations in Georgetown and Mount Pleasant, and doubled the size of our mortgage department. We are seeing early signs of success from these new endeavors and we continue to leverage these investments to produce earnings.

"Plans are proceeding well for our new office in Pawleys Island to be located at the corner of Ocean Highway and Lachicotte Road. We expect to move from our existing office in Waverly Place to the new quarters in the fall of this year," Wicker said.

Double digit growth was reported in the balance sheet. Total loans grew 17.3% during the first quarter, from $198.0 million at March 31, 2013 to $232.1 million at March 31, 2014. Total deposits grew 10.6%, from $269.7 million at March 31, 2013 to $298.4 million at March 31, 2014.

South Atlantic Bank's credit quality remains strong with no net charge-offs for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Total assets grew 11.9%, from $295.6 million at March 31, 2013, to $330.7 million at March 31, 2014. The bank's capital ratios continue to exceed regulatory requirements.
