Surrey Bancorp Reports Third Quarter Net Income of $774,843

MOUNT AIRY, NC--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) -  Surrey Bancorp (the "Company") (PINKSHEETS: SRYB), the holding company for Surrey Bank & Trust, today reported earnings for the third quarter of 2012.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, net income totaled $774,843 or $0.19 per fully diluted share, compared with $561,713 or $0.13 per fully diluted common share earned during the third quarter of 2011. 

Earnings for the three months ended September 30, 2012, are 37.9 percent higher compared to the same period in 2011. The increase results from a reduction in the provision for loan losses. The provision for loan losses decreased from $188,118 in the third quarter of 2011 to a provision of $41,384 in 2012. This decrease is due to a reduction in specific reserves associated with impaired loans during the third quarter of 2012 compared to the same quarter of 2011. Specific reserves on impaired loans decreased from $1,881,314 at September 30, 2011, to $528,682 at September 30, 2012. Much of the decrease is a result of charging off these impaired loans. The charge off of these problem assets resulted in an overall increase in the credit quality of the loan portfolio. The reserve was further impacted by an increase in loans carrying government guarantees. At September 30, 2012, the guaranteed portion of loans equaled 22.3 percent of total loans compared to 20.7 percent at September 30, 2011. Net interest income increased from $2,263,325 in the third quarter of 2011 to $2,347,448 in 2012. A reduction in the cost of deposits from the third quarter of 2011 to 2012 contributed to the margin improvement. Asset yields increased from 5.09 percent to 5.32 percent from 2011 to 2012 due to the change in earning asset mix from lower yielding deposits in other banks to higher yielding loans. The cost of funds continued to decrease from 1.05 percent in the third quarter of 2011 to 0.85 percent in the third quarter of 2012. Noninterest income decreased 2.6 percent in 2012, primarily due to a reduction in service charges on deposit accounts. Noninterest expenses decreased 6.7 percent from $1,773,472 in the third quarter of 2011, to $1,654,467 in 2012. This decrease is primarily attributable to a $130,000 litigation settlement the Company paid in the third quarter of 2011 compared to no expense in 2012. 

Loan loss reserves were $3,733,177 or 2.0 percent of total loans as of September 30, 2012. Non-performing assets were 1.95 percent of total assets at September 30, 2012, compared to 3.17 percent on that date in 2011. At September 30, 2012, the allowance for loan loss reserves equals 90 percent of impaired and non-performing assets, net of government guarantees. 

Total assets were $226,231,381 as of September 30, 2012, a decrease of 1.21 percent from $229,007,209 reported as of September 30, 2011. Total deposits were $183,465,913 at quarter-end 2012, a 2.57 percent decrease from the $188,299,291 reported at the end of the third quarter of 2011. Net loans increased 4.04 percent to $183,238,489, compared to $176,116,287 at September 30, 2011.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, was $1,806,481or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to $1,825,081, or $0.48 per diluted share, for the same period in 2011.

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.
