President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Salisbury stated, "While the quarter just ended reflects a net profit of $415,000, the earnings include two unusual items. First, the Bank issued a special press release on May 1, 2013 announcing the release of Deferred Tax Assets in the amount of $700,000. This resulted in an increase in net income for the quarter just ended of an additional $700,000, which represents an income tax benefit resulting from a deferred tax asset valuation allowance reversal. The total amount of deferred tax asset valuation allowance is $2.6MM at December 31, 2012, but the Bank has concluded to release only $700,000 of the $2.6MM in order to be conservative and to be certain that future earnings will continue to justify the release of the remaining $1.9MM. The remaining $1.9MM is available to be recognized as an income tax benefit in future periods as additional taxable earnings are anticipated. The Bank has reported profitability for ten consecutive quarters, asset quality has improved, net interest margins remain strong, cost of funds are decreasing and the Bank believes that the allowance for loan loss reserve is adequately funded. This, along with a reasonable expectation of continued profitability has prompted management to determine that those tax assets would more likely than not be recovered through future taxable income and that maintaining the entire valuation allowance was no longer necessary. Second, the Bank incurred an additional $350,000 provision for OREO write down. The OREO is related to vacant repossessed lots in a prestigious resort. The lots have not sold for some time and the market for them remains weak. Another financial institution that also owns vacant lots in the subdivision recently reduced their sales price substantially, therefore forcing the Bank to adjust the carrying value of the lots due to the lack of reasonable market data for those properties.
