Jefferson Security Bank Announces Record Earnings for 2006
February 20, 2007 - Shepherdstown, West Virginia; January 25, 2007
President and CEO of Jefferson Security Bank (OTCBB: JFWV), K. Stephen Morris said, “We are proud of the results for 2006, which reflect the third consecutive year of record earnings, dividends, and increases in book value per share since the new senior management team and Board of Directors began to work together in October 2003. As I commented in the October 2006 press release, we have invested in the Bank’s future by opening two new offices in 2006. The expenses incurred for salaries and occupancy for these facilities resulted in a decline in net income for the fourth quarter of 2006 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2005. We are working aggressively to manage all costs but believe that the long-term interests of shareholders will be enhanced as a result of these two new offices.”
