SP Bancorp, Inc. Announces Financial Results For The Third Quarter Of 2010

PLANO, Texas, Nov. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SP Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:SPBC) (the "Company"), the holding company for SharePlus Federal Bank (the "Bank"), announced today the Bank's financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. Continued growth in both assets and core earnings, coupled with improving asset quality, highlighted the Company's results this quarter. Detailed results for the quarter will be available in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which is expected to be filed today and posted on the Company's website, www.shareplus.com .

"We are very pleased that in our last full quarter as a mutual savings bank, SharePlus continued to show growth in both loans and deposits, while asset quality continues to improve," said Jeff Weaver, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our mortgage production was excellent in the quarter and our commercial lending unit continued to make steady progress in growing that portfolio. We are excited about the conversion and the Company's initial public offering, which closed on October 29, 2010 and marked a new chapter in the 52-year history of our company."
