HAMMOND, LA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) - FPB Financial Corp. (OTCQB: FPBF), the holding company for Florida Parishes Bank, announced today that its Board of Directors has declared a three-for-one stock split with respect to the Company's common stock. The stock split will be paid on September 27, 2013 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on September 11, 2013. Each stockholder of the Company will be entitled to receive two additional shares of common stock for each one share of common stock held as of the close of business on the record date.

Fritz W. Anderson, II, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "I am pleased to announce this stock split, which reflects our strong financial condition."

The Company previously announced that the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.18 per share on the Company's common stock, which will be paid on September 25, 2013 to stockholders of record at the close of business on September 10, 2013.
