Porter Bancorp, Inc. Holds Annual Meeting

Porter Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: PBIB), parent company of PBI Bank, announced today that shareholders elected seven directors and approved a non-binding advisory vote on the compensation of the company’s executives at its annual meeting of shareholders.

In comments at the meeting, Maria L. Bouvette, President and CEO of Porter Bancorp, Inc., said, “Porter Bancorp’s core business remains solid and is backed by a strong capital base; however, we expect our earnings will be challenged by our high level of non-performing assets and the continued softness in real estate markets, including lower market values and soft demand for residential and commercial real estate. Our primary focus for 2011 is to reduce the level of non-performing assets and to preserve our strong capital base. We expect these measures to contribute to improved profitability in the future.”

At the meeting, shareholders elected the following as directors to serve for a one-year term:
  • Maria L. Bouvette – President and Chief Executive Officer of Porter Bancorp, Inc.
  • David L. Hawkins – CPA, Farmer and Private Investor
  • W. Glenn Hogan – Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hogan Real Estate
  • Sidney L. Monroe – Retired Certified Public Accountant
  • J. Chester Porter – Chairman of the Board and General Counsel of Porter Bancorp, Inc.
  • Stephen A. Williams – President and Chief Executive Officer of Norton Healthcare
  • W. Kirk Wycoff – Managing Member of Patriot Financial Partners, L.P.

Shareholders also approved a non-binding advisory vote on the compensation of the company’s executives.
