Dennis S. Hudson, III, Chairman and CEO of the Company, stated "Seacoast was pleased to have raised the capital in the April offering, and with the continued support of the investors in that offering, including CapGen Financial.  The registration of shares sold in private placements is a customary requirement that enables various of our institutional shareholders to meet their legal and policy limits on the amounts of 'restricted securities' they may hold at any time.  This recent offering and the completion of these registration statements demonstrates the Company's ability to effectively execute capital markets transactions quickly and effectively."

Robert Goldstein, a director of Seacoast and a principal of CapGen, which is the Company's largest shareholder, commented:  "We are delighted with our investment in the Company and bought additional shares in the April offering."

Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida has approximately $2.2 billion in assets. It is one of the largest independent commercial banking organizations domiciled in Florida, and is headquartered on Florida's Treasure Coast.
