Jefferson Security Bank (OTCBB: JFWV) reported net income of $224,528 or $0.78 per share, for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2010 was $449,553, or $1.56 per share.
Based on these results, the Board of Directors declared a semiannual dividend in the amount of $0.50 per share, payable July 15, 2010 to shareholders of record on June 30, 2010. This dividend represents an increase of $0.20 from the $0.30 per share dividend paid in January 2010. Total dividends declared for 2009 were $1.30 per share.
Commenting on the results, K. Stephen Morris, President and CEO, said: “Our results for both the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010 reflect the continuing sluggish economy in our markets. We have not seen any substantive signs of an improving economy. Accordingly, we continue to focus on and implement changes to reduce noninterest expense. The dividend of $0.50 per share reflects the continued caution and conservatism of the Board of Directors who understand the importance of maintaining a strong liquidity position and remaining well capitalized.”
As of June 30, 2010, total assets of the Bank were $255.5 million, loans, net of reserve, were $143.6 million and deposits were $233.4 million. The annualized return on average assets was 0.35%, and the annualized return on average equity was 4.65% for the six months ended June 30, 2010.
