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, 2013. Highlights of the Company's results for the year ended 2013 include:

  • Net income of $11.3 million or $1.50 per diluted share, up 67% from net income of $6.8 million or $0.85 per diluted share for the year ended 2012;
  • Excluding special items for each year, net income of $10.6 million or $1.42 per diluted share, up 86% from $5.7 million or $0.71 per diluted share for the year ended 2012 (see reconciliation of non-GAAP items);
  • Loan growth, excluding loans acquired through FDIC-assisted acquisitions, of $98.8 million or 17% from 2012;
  • A decline in the provision for loan losses, excluding FDIC-acquired loans, to $1.7 million, down 34% from $2.5 million for 2012;

Commenting on the results, Leonard Dorminey, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased to announce solid financial results for the fourth quarter and for all of 2013. Our team has been focused on several strategic initiatives, and we are excited to report that those efforts came to fruition in our financial results this past quarter. Contributing to our results were organic loan growth from commercial banking, fee income and improved efficiency from our branch network, fee income and growth in assets under management from our brokerage division, continued growth in mortgage banking, and significant gains on resolutions from our FDIC-acquired special asset team. We enter 2014 well positioned on all strategic fronts."

Dorminey also noted that the Company's Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.07 per share, resuming regular payments after a special dividend was paid in December 2012 in lieu of dividends for 2013. The new dividend will be paid on February 28, 2014, to stockholders of record as of February 14, 2014.
