Surrey Bancorp’s earnings rise in 2007

February 23rd, 2008 · No Comments

Mount Airy-based Surrey Bancorp earned $2.79 million, or $0.78 per fully diluted share, for the year that ended Dec. 31, 2007 — a 5.1 percent increase in profitability from year-end 2006.

For the fourth quarter of 2007, the company reported earnings of $566,706 or $.16 per fully diluted share, down 9.7 percent from the fourth quarter of 2006.

The 2007 increase in annual earnings primarily resulted from overall growth and increases in non-interest income. The decrease in the fourth-quarter earnings was a result of a tightening net interest margin, brought about by a general decrease in interest rates and increases in the provision for loan losses due to loan growth.

Total assets were $211 million at year’s end, an increase of 12.7 percent from the $187 million reported on Dec. 31, 2006. Net loans increased 8.2 percent to $166,456,800, compared to $153,852,006 at the end of the 2006. Asset quality remained strong with delinquency levels and charge-offs in line with industry averages. Loan loss reserves were $2.78 million or 1.64 percent of total loans as of Dec. 31. Total deposits increased 13.3 percent to $171 million, compared to the end of 2006.
