Highlight of Business Operations:

Net income for the second quarter of 2009 was $200,707 compared with $2,177,998 for the second quarter of 2008. This decrease of $1,977,291 is the result of the increase in the provision for the allowance for losses on loans of $1,454,000 and an increase in FDIC and state banking assessments of $496,393 during the second quarter of 2009. In addition to recurring, quarterly FDIC assessments which are based on deposits, a special assessment of 5 basis points on the sum of total assets less Tier 1 capital was imposed by the FDIC as of June 30, 2009 in order to improve the balance in the Bank Insurance Fund. This special assessment amounted to $420,000 for the Company.

Net income for the first six months 2009 was $1,903,674 compared with $4,267,398 for the first six months of 2008. This decrease of $2,363,724 is the result of the increase in the provision for the allowance for losses on loans of $1,756,000 and an increase in FDIC assessments of $420,000 for the special assessment discussed previously.

Total assets increased to $946,324,090 at June 30, 2009 from $896,407,501 at December 31, 2008. This increase was primarily attributable to the net increase in available for sale securities of $40,452,903 during the first half of 2009, which was funded through increased deposits of $7,818,027 and increased borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank of $35,919,449.

Total non-interest income decreased $464,339 for the second quarter of 2009 as compared with the second quarter of 2008. Contributing to this decrease is the reduction in trust department income and fees of $108,275 as a result of the decrease in market value, on which fees are based, of personal trust accounts. Total non-interest income also was impacted by the decrease in other income of $301,152 for the second quarter of 2009 as compared with the second quarter of 2008. A loss of $149,517 on the Company’s investment in preferred stock of an unaffiliated bank holding company was recognized as the FDIC closed that company’s bank subsidiary during the second quarter. Results for the second quarter of 2008 included a gain from the sale of bank premises of $142,607, while there were no such sales during 2009.

Income taxes decreased $1,134,000 for the second quarter of 2009 as compared with the second quarter of 2008, and decreased $1,883,000 for the first half of 2009 as compared with the first half of 2008. Approximately $1,058,000 and $1,444,000 of these decreases were the result of the overall decrease in taxable earnings for the first quarter of 2009 as compared with the first quarter of 2009 and the first half of 2009 as compared with the first half of 2008, respectively. The remaining decrease was primarily attributable to an increase in non-taxable income as a component of total income, the overall over accrual of taxes during the first quarter and first half of 2008 and the effect of tax credits in 2009.

Total deposits increased $7,818,027 at June 30, 2009, as compared with December 31, 2008. Typically, significant increases or decreases in total deposits and/or significant fluctuations among the different types of deposits from quarter to quarter are anticipated by Management as customers in the casino industry and county and municipal entities reallocate their resources periodically. During the first half of 2009, time deposits with a balance of $100,000 or more increased $50,751,747 as a result of the acquisition of $20,000,000 in brokered deposits and an increase in public fund time deposits of $24,126,226.
