Diamond Hill Capital Comments on State Bank Financial Corp

We took advantage of an opportunity to purchase shares in the heavily capitalized Georgia bank State Bank Financial Corp. (STBZ) as the depressed stock price reflected investors’ lack of patience with a slower than expected pace of capital deployment. We like State Bank’s management team led by Georgia banker Joe Evans. This management team has experience successfully building and selling other Georgia banks.
