Greer Bancshares Incorporated, the parent company of Greer State Bank, today reported a third quarter net profit of $955,000 before TARP related expenses of $178,000 resulting in net income attributable to common shareholders of $777,000 or $0.31 per diluted common share. This performance is a significant improvement over the prior year third quarter net loss of $643,000 before TARP related expenses of $163,000, resulting in a net loss to common shareholders of $806,000 or $0.32 per diluted common share. This marks the fourth straight profitable quarter for the Bank.

For the first nine months of 2012, Greer Bancshares reported a net profit of $4,105, 000 before TARP related expenses of $542,000 resulting in net income attributable to common shareholders of $3,563, 000 or $1.43 per diluted common share. The results also represent significant improvement over the loss for the first nine months of 2011 of $2,424, 000 before TARP related expenses of $488,000, which resulted in a net loss to common shareholders of $2,912, 000 or $1.17 per diluted common share.

“A net gain on an investment transaction enhanced our 2012 third quarter net profit,” stated R. Dennis Hennett, CEO. “Net operating income for the Company would have been $577,000 without the investment transaction. We also did not require any loan loss provision expense in the third quarter of 2012.”

As of September 30, 2012:

• total assets were $364 million, a decrease of 5.0% from December 31, 2011;
• total loans outstanding were $200 million, down 11.9% from year end 2011; and
• total deposits were $267 million, down 5.0% from year end 2011.

Non-accrual loans decreased from $10.4 million at December 31, 2011, to $6.9 million at September 30, 2012. Delinquent loans over thirty days (excluding non-accrual loans) decreased from $5.3 million at December 31, 2011, to $2.0 million at September 30, 2012.
