Surrey Bancorp Reports Third Quarter Net Income of $714,688

MOUNT AIRY, NC--(Marketwired - Oct 24, 2014) - Surrey Bancorp (the "Company") (PINKSHEETS: SRYB), the holding company for Surrey Bank & Trust, today reported earnings for the third quarter of 2014.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2014, net income totaled $714,688 or $0.17 per fully diluted share, compared with $735,883 or $0.18 per fully diluted common share earned during the third quarter of 2013. 

Earnings for the three months ended September 30, 2014, are 2.9 percent lower compared to the same period in 2013. The reduction results from an increase in the provision for loan losses. The provision for loan losses increased from $12,317 in the third quarter of 2013 to $139,527 in 2014. This increase is due to loan growth in the quarter ended September 30, 2014, compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2013. In the third quarter of 2014, gross loans increased $8,262,792 compared to a decrease of $2,061,965 in 2013. The majority of loan growth during the quarter was in non-guaranteed loans, requiring larger reserves. Net interest income was $2,381,095 in the third quarter of 2014, compared to $2,246,952 in 2013. This increase is due to loan growth. Loan yields increased from 5.61 percent in the third quarter of 2013 to 5.80 percent in the third quarter of 2014. A reduction in the cost of deposits from the third quarter of 2013 to 2014 also contributed to the increase in the net interest margin. The cost of funds decreased from 0.73 percent in the third quarter of 2013 to 0.66 percent in the third quarter of 2014. Noninterest income increased from $613,162 in the third quarter of 2013 to $628,771 in 2014. This is due to an increase in other service charges and fees and other operating income. Other service charges and fees increased from $150,787 in 2013 to $177,806 in 2014 as a result of an increase in the Bank's fee structure. Other operating income increased from $174,483 in 2013 to $200,066 in 2014 due to increased revenue from the Bank's investment and insurance subsidiary, Surrey Investment Services, Inc. Noninterest expenses increased 4.5 percent from $1,677,977 in the third quarter of 2013, to $1,753,022 in 2014. This is primarily attributable to increased data processing expenses and professional fees. Data processing fees increased 30.1 percent from $99,878 in 2013 to $130,002 in 2014, primarily due to increased communication costs and growth. Increases in professional fees result from higher legal and internal audit fees. 

Loan loss reserves were $3,653,226 or 1.90 percent of total loans as of September 30, 2014. Non-performing assets were 1.39 percent of total assets at September 30, 2014, compared to 1.66 percent on that date in 2013. At September 30, 2014, the allowance for loan loss reserves equaled 119 percent of impaired and non-performing assets, net of government guarantees. 

Total assets were $252,875,436 as of September 30, 2014, an increase of 5.7 percent from $239,343,856 reported as of September 30, 2013. Total deposits were $204,720,550 at quarter-end 2014, a 5.7 percent increase from the $193,695,070 reported at the end of the third quarter of 2013. Net loans increased 5.8 percent to $188,813,973, compared to $178,519,116 at September 30, 2013.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, was $2,158,867 or $0.52 per diluted share, compared to $2,188,502 or $0.52 per diluted share, for the same period in 2013.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This report refers to the overhead efficiency ratio, which is computed by dividing non-interest expense by the sum of net interest income and non-interest income. This is a non-GAAP financial measure that we believe provides investors with important information regarding our operational efficiency. Comparison of our efficiency ratio with those of other companies may not be possible, because other companies may calculate the efficiency ratio differently. Such information is not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) and should not be construed as such. Management believes such financial information is meaningful to the reader in understanding operating performance, but cautions that such information not be viewed as a substitute for GAAP. Surrey Bancorp, in referring to its net income, is referring to income under GAAP.
