Stocks in this article: HBKS

NORFOLK, Va., July 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Heritage Bankshares, Inc. ("Heritage") (OTCBB: HBKS), parent of Heritage Bank, today announced that it has received preliminary approval from the U.S. Treasury for a $7.8 million investment under the Small Business Lending Fund program (the "SBLF Program").  The SBLF Program was authorized under the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, and established a $30 billion fund from which the Treasury can make capital investments in eligible institutions; the capital investments, in turn, are designed to increase the availability of credit for small businesses and promote economic growth nationwide.  

Heritage's participation in the SBLF Program is subject to the Treasury's due diligence review and other customary closing conditions, including execution and delivery of applicable investment documents, as well as approval and authorization by the Board of Directors of Heritage.  If Heritage receives all necessary final approvals for participation in the SBLF Program, it expects that the investment transaction would close within thirty (30) days, and Heritage would use the investment proceeds to repay in full its outstanding investment under the TARP Capital Purchase Program.
