Surrey Bancorp Reports Second Quarter Net Income of $767,779

MOUNT AIRY, N.C. -- Surrey Bancorp (the "Company"), (PINKSHEETS: SRYB), the holding company for Surrey Bank & Trust, today reported earnings for the second quarter of 2014. For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, net income totaled $767,779 or $0.18 per fully diluted share, compared with totaled $800,843 or $0.19 per fully diluted common share earned during the second quarter of 2013.


Earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2014 are approximately 4.4 percent lower than for the same period in 2013. The decrease is the result of a reduction in noninterest income and an increase in noninterest expenses. Noninterest income decreased from $796,643 in the second quarter of 2013 to $731,886 in 2014. The gain on the sale of government guaranteed loans dropped from $229,130 in the quarter ended June 30, 2013 to $127,362 in 2014. Noninterest expenses increased 7.1 percent from $1,678,757 in the second quarter of 2013, to $1,797,745 in 2014, primarily due to increases in personnel-related expenses and costs associated with foreclosed assets. Other expenses increased 12.8 percent from $336,965 in 2013 to $380,235 in 2014 due to cost associated with software license, consulting, and electronic banking expenses. The provision for loan losses decreased from $93,402 in the second quarter of 2013 to $55,787 in 2014. This decrease is partially due to net charge off recoveries in the second quarter of 2014 compared to 2013. Net recoveries amounted to $103,450 in June 2014, compared to net charge offs of $4,064 in the second quarter of 2013. At June 30, 2014, the percentage of loans receiving pass credit risk grades was 98.1 percent, compared to 97.3 percent at December 31, 2013 and 98.3 percent at June 30, 2013. Credit quality continues to be enhanced by government guarantees. At June 30, 2014, the guaranteed portion of loans equaled 25.2 percent of total loans compared to 26.1 percent at December 31, 2013 and 25.1 percent at June 30, 2013. Net interest income increased from $2,251,138 in the second quarter of 2013 to $2,335,307 in 2014. This increase is due to loan growth. Asset yields decreased from 4.83 percent to 4.69 percent from the quarters ended June 2013 to June 2014, partially due to the change in average earning asset mix from higher yielding loans to lower yielding deposits in other banks. However, loan yields increased from 5.71 percent in the second quarter of 2013 to 5.82 percent in the second quarter of 2014, but the increase was not enough to offset the change in the earning asset mix.

Loan loss reserves were $3,523,464 or 1.91 percent of total loans as of June 30, 2014. Non-performing assets were 1.28 percent of total assets at June 30, 2014, compared to 1.55 percent on that date in 2013. At June 30, 2014, the allowance for loan loss reserves equals 124 percent of impaired and non-performing assets, net of government guarantees.

Total assets were $250,056,330 as of June 30, 2014, an increase of 6.6 percent from $234,574,115 reported as of June 30, 2013. Total deposits were $203,356,899 at quarter-end 2014, a 6.9 percent increase from the $190,147,848 reported at the end of the second quarter of 2013. Net loans increased to $180,910,373, or 0.3 percent, compared to $180,450,435, at June 30, 2013.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014, was $1,444,179 or $0.35 per diluted share, compared to $1,452,619 or $0.35 per diluted share, for the same period in 2013.
