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.”
