Dean Withers, President and CEO, commented, "We're pleased with our year to date net income which increased 18.68% or $358 thousand compared to the prior year. This increase was driven by our improved net interest income which increase $327 thousand compared to 2011. The increase versus 2011 was also in spite of a reduction in securities gains of $288 thousand. While credit quality and the resulting funding of the Allowance for Loan Losses continue to place a damper on net income, we are very happy with our core operating results as evidenced by our net interest income and year to date net profit. On July 19, 2012, our Board of Directors declared a second quarter dividend of $0.16 per share. The dividend will be paid on August 10, 2012, to shareholders of record as of July 31, 2012." Highlights of the company's financial performance are included below.
