Southern Missouri Bancorp Reports Preliminary Fiscal 2013 Second Quarter And Year-to-date Results, Declares Dividend Of $0.15 Per Common Share, Schedules Conference Call To Discuss Results For January 29 At 3:30pm CST

·         The Company posted loan growth of $36.0 million, or 6.2%, during the first six months of fiscal 2013; deposits increased $21.6 million, or 3.7%.  Investment balances were up slightly, and cash balances decreased. 

·         Non-performing assets and non-performing loans increased in the first six months of fiscal 2013, but were down from totals reported for at September 30, 2012, as the Company worked through the resolution process of several previously classified credits.

Southern Missouri Bancorp, Inc. ("Company") (NASDAQ: SMBC), the parent corporation of Southern Bank ("Bank"), today announced preliminary net income available to common shareholders for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 of $2.4 million, a decrease of $122,000, or 4.8%, as compared to $2.6 million in net income available to common shareholders earned during the same period of the prior fiscal year.  The decrease was attributable primarily to an increase in noninterest expense and an increase in provision for loan losses, partially offset by decreases in provisions for income taxes and increases in noninterest income and net interest income.  Preliminary net income available to common shareholders was $.72 per fully diluted common share for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, a decrease of 24.2%, as compared to the $.95 per fully diluted common share earned during the same period of the prior fiscal year. The decrease was primarily the result of higher average fully diluted common shares outstanding following the common stock offering completed in November 2011.  Before the dividend on preferred shares of $50,000, preliminary net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $2.5 million, a decrease of $194,000, or 7.2%, as compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year.
