Surrey Bancorp Reports Third Quarter Net Income of $798,587

MOUNT AIRY, NC--(Marketwired - October 28, 2015) - Surrey Bancorp (the "Company") (OTC PINK: SRYB), the holding company for Surrey Bank & Trust, today reported earnings for the third quarter of 2015.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, net income totaled $798,587 or $0.19 per fully diluted share, compared with $714,688 or $0.17 per fully diluted common share earned during the third quarter of 2014.

Earnings for the three months ended September 30, 2015, are 11.7 percent higher compared to the same period in 2014. The increase in earnings results from an increase in net interest income. Net interest income increased from $2,381,095 in the third quarter of 2014 to $2,513,442 in 2015. Most of this increase is due to loan growth. Average loans outstanding increased 3.8 percent, or approximately $7,125,000, between the third quarter of 2014 and the third quarter of 2015. The net interest margin decreased from 4.15 percent to 4.00 percent from the third quarter of 2014 to the third quarter of 2015 due to a change in the average asset mix. Higher yielding loans averaged 80.7 percent of total interest earning assets in the third quarter of 2014 but only averaged 78.2 percent in the third quarter of 2015. As a result overall asset yields dropped from 4.75 percent in 2014 to 4.44 percent in 2015. The cost of funds decreased from 0.66 percent in the third quarter of 2014 to 0.49 percent in the third quarter of 2015 but was not enough to offset the reduction in asset yields. The provision for loan loss reserves decreased from $139,527 in the third quarter of 2014 to a provision of $129,213 in 2015. The decrease in the provision is partially due to a decrease in specific reserves on impaired loans. Noninterest income increased from $628,771 in the third quarter of 2014 to $667,364 for the same period in 2015, a 6.1 percent increase. Noninterest expenses increased from $1,753,022 in the third quarter of 2014 to $1,799,660 in 2015, a 2.7 percent increase.

Loan loss reserves were $3,567,517 or 1.80 percent of total loans as of September 30, 2015. Non-performing assets were 0.67 percent of total assets at September 30, 2015, compared to 1.39 percent on that date in 2014. At September 30, 2015, the allowance for loan loss reserves equaled 97 percent of impaired and non-performing assets, net of government guarantees.

Total assets were $276,915,968 as of September 30, 2015, an increase of 10.7 percent from the $250,056,330 reported as of September 30, 2014. Total deposits were $229,949,498 at quarter-end 2015, a 12.3 percent increase from the $204,720,550 reported at the end of the third quarter of 2014. Net loans increased 3.4 percent to $195,175,423, compared to $188,813,973 at September 30, 2014.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, was $2,266,957 or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to $2,158,867 or $0.52 per diluted share, for the same period in 2014.

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.
