Severn Bancorp, Inc. Announces Adjustment to Reported Results for Second Quarter 2014

ANNAPOLIS, Md., Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Severn Bancorp, Inc., (Nasdaq: SVBI) ("Company") parent company of Severn Savings Bank, FSB ("Severn"), today announced an adjustment to the earnings reported in a July 15, 2014 earnings release. The adjustment is for a $1.4 million reserve being placed on certain standby letters of credit held by Severn, not previously reflected in the earnings statement.

The adjustment results in a change from net income of $824,000 or $.02 per share for the second quarter 2014, to a net loss of $576,000 or ($.12) per share.  This reserve is due to management's decision, based on consultation with its regulators, to place a reserve on certain unsecured standby letters of credit on the books as of June 30, 2014.  Standby letters of credit are conditional commitments issued by Severn guaranteeing performance by a customer to various municipalities.

Severn determined that a reserve against certain standby letters of credit was prudent due to insufficient collateral supporting these letters of credit as of June 30, 2014.  Severn is working on a resolution of this matter and it is anticipated that adequate collateral will be obtained to warrant the reversal of a majority of the reserve in the near future.

The revised Selected Financial Data table is attached to this press release.
