Heritage Financial Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: HBOS), the holding company for HeritageBank of the South, today announced unaudited financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012. Highlights of the Company's results for the year ended 2012 include:
  • Net income of $6.8 million or $0.85 per diluted share, up 77% from net income of $3.8 million or $0.47 per diluted share for the year ended 2011;
  • Excluding special items for each year, net income was $5.4 million or $0.67 per diluted share for 2012 versus net income of $1.6 million or $0.19 per diluted share for 2011 (see reconciliation of non-GAAP items);
  • Loan growth for the year, excluding loans acquired through FDIC-assisted acquisitions, of $151.3 million or 35% from 2011;
  • A decrease in loans acquired through FDIC-assisted acquisitions for the year of $41.9 million or 33% from 2011;
  • A decrease in provision for loan losses, excluding FDIC-acquired loans, of $395,000 to $2.5 million for the year compared with $2.9 million for 2011;
  • Provision for loan losses of $3.4 million for FDIC-acquired loans with approximately 80% of the losses reimbursable by the FDIC versus no provision expense on such loans for 2011; and
  • A decrease in net charge-offs to 0.19% for the year compared with 0.82% for 2011.

Commenting on the results, Leonard Dorminey, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "During 2012, our team worked hard to explore new opportunities for growth, effectively assimilate our recent acquisitions to capitalize on the benefits of that expansion, and optimize our operations at every level of our organization. Those efforts paid off handsomely in 2012 with significantly increased earnings, robust organic loan growth, and strong contributions from our mortgage banking and brokerage departments. Moreover, during 2012, we implemented several expense management initiatives that are anticipated to reduce costs by approximately $1.2 million in 2013.
