Heritage Financial Group, Inc.

The Company sold a total of 6,591,756 shares of common stock in the subscription, community and syndicated offerings, including 327,677 shares to the Heritage Financial Group employee stock ownership plan.

The Company also announced that the prior holding companies for the Bank, Heritage MHC and Heritage Financial Group ("Old Heritage") have ceased to exist and that all outstanding shares of Old Heritage common stock (other than those owned by Heritage MHC) have been converted into the right to receive 0.8377 shares of Company common stock. In this stock exchange, cash in lieu of fractional shares will be paid at a rate of $10.00 per share. As a result of the conversion, offering and exchange, the Company will have approximately 8,710,640 shares outstanding and a market capitalization of approximately $87.1 million, based on the public offering price of $10.00 per share.

Thereafter, the trading symbol will be HBOS. Stock certificates for shares purchased in the subscription offering and community offering are expected to be mailed to subscribers on or about November 30, 2010. Syndicated offering subscribers and Old Heritage shareholders that hold their shares in street name or in book-entry form will have shares of the Company deposited directly to their accounts.
