As a result of the charitable contribution, the Company had a net loss of ($197,000) for the three months ended for the three months ended March 31, 2011, compared to net income at the Association of $660,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2010. The Company’s total assets increased to $377 million at March 31, 2011 from $333.5 million at June 30, 2010, and loans, net of allowance, increased to $265.7 million at March 31, 2011 from $264.3 million at June 30, 2010.

T. Rhett Evatt, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are very pleased with our financial performance during our first quarter as a public company, which has generally continued to improve despite the current economic conditions nationwide and in our community.” Regarding the net loss for the quarter, Mr. Evatt stated, “Our net loss of $197,000 was the direct result of our $1.7 million contribution to the Oconee Federal Charitable Foundation which we formed to support our local community. Although this contribution was booked entirely in the quarter ended March 31, 2011, we view this as a long-term investment in the communities we serve.” Mr. Evatt continued, “We believe our results, especially the increase in our assets, are generally indicative of our continued commitment to our core business, and we feel that the recent dividend of $0.10 per share indicates our confidence in our financial performance and our commitment to providing value to shareholders. We look forward to our second fiscal quarter as a public company and to continuing to serve the lending and savings needs of our community.”
