PLANO, Texas, Aug. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SP Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:SPBC) (the "Company"), the holding company for SharePlus Federal Bank (the "Bank"), today announced financial results for the Company's second quarter ended June 30, 2012. Net income was $235,000, or 15 cents per share, for the second quarter of 2012. "We are again pleased with the continued growth in our core earnings as well as the strong mortgage and commercial loan volumes in the second quarter," said President and CEO Jeff Weaver. "Our net income increased 7.8% and earnings per share increased 15.4%, compared to the same period in 2011. This included increases in net interest income and revenue from the sales of mortgage loans, which were partially offset by credit costs as reflected in both provision for loan losses and other noninterest expense. We continue to produce increased shareholder returns, while working through a few problem assets and simultaneously increasing our reserves." PERFORMANCE HIGHLIGHTS
