Surrey Bancorp Reports First Quarter Net Income of $676,400


April 22, 2014 - Mount Airy, NC

Surrey Bancorp (the "Company") (PINKSHEETS: SRYB), the holding company for Surrey Bank & Trust (the "Bank"), today reported earnings for the first quarter of 2014.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, net income totaled $676,400 or $0.16 per fully diluted common share, compared with $651,776 or $0.16 per fully diluted common share earned during the first quarter of 2013.

The increase in net income results from a reduction in the provision for loan losses. The provision for loan losses decreased from $42,394 in the first quarter of 2013 to a recapture of $62,362 in 2014. The recapture of reserve is partially due to a reduction in gross loans in the first quarter of 2014, while gross loans increased in the first quarter of 2013. Gross loans decreased $898,998 from December 31, 2013 to March 31, 2014. During the same period in 2013 gross loans increased $4,212,276. In addition the Bank experienced net charge off recoveries in the first quarter of 2014. Net recoveries amounted to $51,067 in 2014 compared to net charge offs of $103,457 in the first quarter of 2013, a $154,524 difference. Asset yields decreased from 4.93 percent to 4.74 percent from 2013 to 2014 partially due to the change in average earning asset mix from higher yielding loans to lower yielding deposits in other banks. Loan yields also decreased from 5.93 percent in the first quarter of 2013 to 5.75 percent in the first quarter of 2014. Loan yields fell due to the prolonged low rate environment and competition. A reduction in the cost of deposits from the first quarter of 2013 to 2014 was unable to offset the tightening asset yields. The cost of funds decreased from 0.78 percent in the first quarter of 2013 to 0.68 percent in the first quarter of 2014.

The allowance for loan loss reserves was $3,364,054 or 1.85 percent of total loans as of March 31, 2014. Non-performing assets were 1.68 percent of total assets at March 31, 2014, compared to 1.74 percent on that date in 2013. At March 31, 2014, the allowance equals 86 percent of impaired and non-performing assets, net of government guarantees.

Noninterest income decreased from $658,376 in the first quarter 2013 to $581,928 in 2014. The decrease results from a reduction in service charges on deposit accounts and a reduction in contingency bonus revenue from the Bank's insurance subsidiary. Noninterest expenses increased slightly from $1,841,826 in the first quarter of 2013, to $1,867,387 in 2014. Salaries and employee benefits accounted for most of the change increasing from $961,121 in 2013 to $1,009,500 in 2014. This increase was due to normal salary adjustments. The increase in payroll cost was partially offset by a reduction in expenses associated with foreclosed assets which decreased from $42,335 in 2013 to a gain of $894 in 2014.

Total assets as of March 31, 2014, were $250,389,844, an increase of 3.8 percent from $241,131,017 reported as of March 31, 2013. Total deposits were $205,115,560 at quarter-end 2014, a 5.6 percent increase from the $194,175,405 reported at the end of the first quarter of 2013. Net loans increased to $179,027,735 at the end of the first quarter of 2014, compared to $177,964,603, as of March 31, 2013.
