FPB Financial Corp. Announces 2006 Second Quarter Earnings and Declares Dividends

HAMMOND, LA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 20, 2006 -- Fritz W. Anderson II, Chairman of FPB Financial Corp. (PINKSHEETS: FPBF), the holding company for Florida Parishes Bank, announced earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2006.

Net income per share for the three months ended June 30, 2006 was $224,000 ($0.85 per common share) down 15.8% from $266,000 ($1.03 per common share) for the 2005 comparable period. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2006, was $409,000 ($1.56 per common share) up 6.5% from $384,000 ($1.49 per common share) for the 2005 comparable period. Earnings for the three and six months ended June 30, 2005 were positively affected by a before tax gain on the sale of investments of $329,000. Earnings for the 2006 second quarter increased by 406.9% compared to the 2005 period, if profit on sale of investments are eliminated.

Earnings for the three and six months ended June 30, 2006 were positively affected by a $531,000 or 85.9% increase in net interest income for the quarter and an $867,000 or 70.0% increase for the six month period. Non-interest income excluding profit on sale of investments increased by 122.0% to $322,000 for the quarter and by 114.0% to $588,000 for the six month period compared to the 2005 results. The increased non-interest income for the quarter and six months were primarily due to $134,000 and $255,000 respectively of mortgage banking revenue. Earnings were affected by a 60.3% increase for the quarter and a 58.1% increase for the six months in non-interest expenses, primarily compensation expense, other expenses, and a 100% and 144.4% increase respectively in provisions for loan losses.
