Severn Bancorp Announces Fourth Quarter Results and Significant Reduction in Non-Performing Assets

ANNAPOLIS, Md., Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Severn Bancorp, Inc., (Nasdaq: SVBI) ("Company") parent company of Severn Savings Bank, FSB ("Severn"), today announced that non-performing assets, comprised of other real estate owned and non-accrual loans, have been reduced to $20,007,000, or 2.5% of total assets, as of December 31, 2013 compared to $48,936,000, or 5.7% of total assets, as of December 31, 2012.

"Our organization has been focused on cleaning up our balance sheet with the goal being to start 2014 with a clean and strong financial position," said Alan J. Hyatt, president and chief executive officer.  Mr. Hyatt continued, "Severn sold over $48 million in underperforming loans and $9 million in real estate acquired through foreclosure in 2013, with several million dollars' worth of real estate pending sale as of 2013 year end."

As a result of these transactions and conservatively calculating reserves and charge offs, the Company incurred a net loss of $5,470,000 or $(.58) per share for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to net income of $1,274,000 or $.09 per share for the fourth quarter of 2012.  Net loss was $25,165,000, or $(2.64) per share for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to net income of $3,728,000, or $.22 per share for the year ended December 31, 2012.  Earnings per share is calculated using net income available for common shareholders, which is net income less preferred stock dividends.

"We are fortunate that our organization has been well capitalized making it able to withstand the balance sheet cleanup and the resulting losses," said Mr. Hyatt.  Mr. Hyatt continued, "Severn now looks forward to progress and growth as its balance sheet and the overall economic conditions have continued to improve. Severn remains one of the area's few community banks and continues to offer exceptional service that some businesses and individuals prefer over the larger out-of-town based banks."
