Forward-looking statements are preceded by terms such as "expects," "believes," "anticipates," "intends" and similar expressions.

Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. Numerous risks and uncertainties could cause or contribute to the Company's actual results, performance and achievements being materially different from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause or contribute to these differences include, without limitation, general economic conditions, including changes in market interest rates and changes in monetary and fiscal policies of the federal government; legislative and regulatory changes; the quality and composition of the loan and investment securities portfolio; loan demand; deposit flows; competition; and changes in accounting principles and guidelines. Additional factors that may affect our results are discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 under "Item 1A. Risk Factors." These factors should be considered in evaluating the forward-looking statements and undue reliance should not be placed on such statements. Except as required by applicable law or regulation, the Company assumes no obligation and disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements.

Critical Accounting Policies

During the three-month period ended March 31, 2013, there was no significant change in the Company's critical accounting policies or the application of critical accounting policies as disclosed in the Company's audited consolidated financial statements and related footnotes for the year ended December 31, 2012 included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012.

Comparison of Financial Condition at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012

Assets.Total assets increased from $291.6 million at December 31, 2012 to $295.5 million at March 31, 2013.

Cash and Cash Equivalents. Total cash and cash equivalents increased $9.8 million, or 48.7%, from $20.3 million at December 31, 2012 to $30.1 million at March 31, 2013. This is due primarily to a $6.5 million increase in deposits, a $4.3 million decrease in securities, and a $2.0 million decrease in loans, partially offset by repurchases of Company common stock in the amount of $2.5 million. Other activities resulted in a net cash outflow of approximately $500,000.

Loans. Net loans receivable decreased $2.0 million, or 0.9% from $217.3 million at December 31, 2012 to $215.3 million at March 31, 2013, primarily as a result of $1.6 million, $900,000, and $400,000 decreases in commercial real estate loans, consumer and equity lines of credit, and commercial loans, respectively.
These decreases were partially offset by an increase in construction and land loans of $900,000. The decrease in commercial real estate loans was primarily due to the payoff of a $1.6 million loan secured by manufacturing facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The decreases in consumer and equity lines of credit and commercial loans were due to an increase in pay downs of existing loans period over period. The increase in construction and land loans was due primarily to draws on a construction line of credit secured by a hotel in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Securities. Total securities decreased $4.3 million, or 13.1% from $32.2 million at December 31, 2012 to $27.9 million at March 31, 2013, primarily as a result of $4.0 million in calls of agency securities and $800,000 of principal payments on mortgage-backed securities. The decrease was partially offset by purchases of taxable municipal securities of $800,000. The purchases were funded from available cash. The remaining change in securities was due to amortization.

Deposits. Total deposits increased $6.5 million, or 2.8% from $234.2 million at December 31, 2012 to $240.7 million at March 31, 2013. The primary reason for the increase in deposits was a $5.5 million increase in demand and NOW accounts, primarily due to an increase in non-personal NOW accounts relating to two public


entities, an overall increase in the number of accounts, and an increase in the average balance of accounts due predominately to tax refunds. Other significant increases were in money market accounts and savings deposit accounts of $1.4 million and $1.3 million, respectively. These increases were partially offset by a $1.7 million decrease in time deposits due to the continued low rate environment.

Borrowings. Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings remained unchanged at $3.0 million from December 31, 2012 to March 31, 2013.

Stockholders' Equity. Stockholders' equity decreased $2.0 million or 4.1% from December 31, 2012 to March 31, 2013. The primary reasons for the decrease include $2.5 million in repurchased and retired common stock, $107,000 in dividends declared and paid on outstanding shares (other than unallocated ESOP shares), and an unrealized loss on securities held for sale (net of taxes) of $53,000. These decreases were partially offset by net income for the first three months of $556,000 and an $88,000 increase in additional paid-in capital related to stock compensation expense for the period on grants of options and restricted stock.

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2013 and 2012

Overview. The Company reported net income of $556,000, or $0.27 basic earnings per share, for the three-month period ended March 31, 2013, compared to a net income of $542,000, or $0.22 basic earnings per share, for the same period in 2012.

Net Interest Income. Net interest income after provision for loan losses decreased $17,000 or 0.60% for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012, primarily as a result of increases in provision for loan losses and decreases in interest income on loans and securities.

Total interest income decreased $99,000, or 2.74%, from the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2013. The decrease was primarily the result of a $64,000 decrease in interest on securities and interest-bearing deposits in other banks and a $33,000 decrease in interest income from loans. The decrease in interest income on securities and interest- bearing deposits in other banks was due primarily to decreases in average balances and decreases in market interest rates. The decrease in interest on loans was due primarily to a decrease in market interest rates.

Total interest expense decreased $132,000 or 18.87% from $700,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $568,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The decrease was primarily a result of a $131,000 decrease in interest on deposits. The primary reason for the decrease in interest on deposits was a reduction in market interest rates.

Provision for Loan Losses. The provision for loan losses was $135,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $86,000 for the same period in 2012. The increase in provision for loan losses was primarily due to an increase in non-performing loans.

Non-performing loans increased $573,000 from $3.2 million at March 31, 2012 to $3.8 million at March 31, 2013. Non-performing residential mortgage loans increased $898,000. Non-performing construction and land, consumer and other, and commercial loans decreased $250,000, $41,000, and $34,000, respectively. The increase in non-performing mortgage loans was primarily due to a mortgage loan in the amount of $1.7 million being placed on nonaccrual status during the third quarter of 2012. The balance of non-performing loans at March 31, 2013 includes nonaccrual loans of $3.8 million. There were no residential mortgage loans that were over 90 days past due but still accruing interest at March 31, 2013. The balance of nonaccrual loans at March 31, 2013 consists of $2.2 million in residential mortgage loans, $1.5 million in construction and land loans and $86,000 in consumer loans.

Net charge-offs were $61,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $184,000 for the same period in 2012. Charge-offs totaling $227,000 were recorded during the quarter ended March 31, 2013 in connection with residential mortgage loans ($71,000), construction and land loans ($98,000) and consumer loans ($58,000).

The allowance for loan losses was $4.6 million at March 31, 2013. Management has deemed this amount as adequate at that date based on its best estimate of probable known and inherent loan losses at that date.


Non-interest Income. Non-interest income increased $75,000, or 6.4%, to $1.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012, primarily due to increases in debit card usage income, income related to investment sales commissions, income from Valley Title Services, LLC, fees related to consumer and commercial loan servicing and origination, and income related to the origination, sale and servicing of mortgage loans on the secondary market of $39,000, $34,000, $27,000, $11,000, and $10,000, respectively. These increases were partially offset by a $53,000 decrease in income related to non-sufficient funds charges on deposit accounts. All other non-interest income increased $7,000, net.

Income related to debit card usage increased primarily due to efforts put forth to encourage customers to use debit cards as opposed to checks combined with an increase in the number of these accounts. Income from investment sales commissions increased primarily due to increased sales of investment products resulting from a partial recovery of investment markets and customers seeking higher yielding investment alternatives in the continued low rate environment.
Income from Valley Title Services, LLC increased primarily due to an increase in the volume of mortgage loan originations during the quarter ended March 31, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012. Consumer and commercial loan origination and servicing fees increased primarily due to increased fee income on consumer loans generated by the Bank and Southland Finance, Inc. The increase in consumer loan fees is attributable to increased volume of consumer loans period over period. Income related to the origination, sale and servicing of mortgage loans on the secondary market increased primarily due to increased volume of these loans during the three months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012. The increased volume is primarily a result of a decrease in market rates period over period.

The decrease in income related to non-sufficient funds charges on deposit accounts is primarily due to Bank policy changes implemented during 2012 that limit the number of daily non-sufficient funds charges. The Bank has also broadened its efforts to discontinue overdraft privileges for accounts with a history of excessive usage.

Non-interest Expense. Non-interest expense increased $324,000, or 11.1%, to $3.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. The primary factors effecting the change were increases in expenses related to salary and employee benefits, data processing, advertising and other expenses, and occupancy and equipment of $128,000, $89,000, $82,000, and $25,000, respectively. Salary and benefits expenses rose primarily because of an increase in the total number of employees. The primary reason for the increase in data processing expense was due to increased charges related to electronic banking services. Advertising and other expenses increased primarily due to an offsetting gain on the sale of foreclosed real-estate during the first quarter of 2012, which was not repeated in the first quarter of 2013. The primary reason for the increase in occupancy and equipment expense was due to increased technology maintenance costs as well as additional depreciation expense on computer hardware due to purchases.

Income Tax Expense. The Company had income tax expense of $278,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2013 as compared to $558,000 for the same period in 2012, due to lower pre-tax income in the 2013 period.

Total Comprehensive Income. Total comprehensive income for the periods presented consists of net income and the change in unrealized gains (losses) on securities available for sale, net of tax. Total comprehensive income was $504,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2013 compared to total comprehensive income of $426,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2012. The increase was primarily a result of a $63,000 decrease in unrealized losses on securities available for sale, net of tax.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Liquidity Management. Liquidity is the ability to meet current and future financial obligations of a short-term nature. The Bank's primary sources of funds consist of deposit inflows, loan repayments, maturities and sales of investment securities and borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati. While maturities and scheduled amortization of loans and securities are predictable sources of funds, deposit flows and mortgage prepayments are greatly influenced by general interest rates, economic conditions and competition.

The Bank regularly adjusts its investments in liquid assets based upon an assessment of (i) expected loan demand, (ii) expected deposit flows, (iii) yields available on interest-earning deposits and securities and (iv) the objectives of its asset/liability management policy.


The Bank's most liquid assets are cash and cash equivalents and interest-bearing time deposits. The level of these assets depends on the Bank's operating, financing, lending and investing activities during any given period. At March 31, 2013, cash and cash equivalents totaled $30.1 million.

At March 31, 2013, securities classified as available-for-sale, which amounted to $27.9 million, and interest-bearing time deposits in banks of $249,000, provide additional sources of liquidity. In addition, at March 31, 2013, the Bank had the ability to borrow a total of approximately $33.1 million from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati. At March 31, 2013, the Bank had $3.0 million in Federal Home Loan Bank advances outstanding and $11.8 million in letters of credit to secure public funds deposits.

The Bank must maintain an adequate level of liquidity to ensure the availability of sufficient funds to support loan growth and deposit withdrawals, to satisfy financial commitments and to take advantage of investment opportunities.
Historically, the Bank has been able to retain a significant amount of its deposits as they mature.

The Company is a separate legal entity from the Bank and must provide for its own liquidity. In addition to its operating expenses, the Company, on a stand-alone basis, is responsible for paying any dividends declared to its shareholders. The Company's primary source of income is dividends received from the Bank. The amount of dividends that the Bank may declare and pay to the Company in any calendar year, without the receipt of prior approval from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency but with prior notice to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, cannot exceed net income for that year to date plus retained net income (as defined) for the preceding two calendar years. On a stand-alone basis, the Company had liquid assets of $3.5 million at March 31, 2013.

Capital Management. The Bank is required to maintain specific amounts of capital pursuant to federal regulatory requirements. As of March 31, 2013, the Bank was in compliance with all regulatory capital requirements, which were effective as of such date, with tangible, core and risk-based capital ratios of 13.5%, 13.5% and 22.0%, respectively. The regulatory requirements at that date were 1.5%, 4.0% and 8.0%, respectively. At March 31, 2013, the Bank was considered "well-capitalized" under applicable regulatory guidelines.

Dividends. The Board of Directors of the Company declared and paid dividends on the Company's common stock of $107,000 in the aggregate during the three months ended March 31, 2013. The dividend payout ratio for the first three months of 2013, representing dividends per share divided by diluted earnings per share, was 19.2%. The dividend payout is continually reviewed by management and the Board of Directors.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

In the normal course of operations, the Company engages in a variety of financial transactions that, in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles are not recorded in our financial statements. These transactions involve, to varying degrees, elements of credit, interest rate and liquidity risk. Such transactions are used primarily to manage customers' requests for funding and take the form of loan commitments, unused lines of credit and letters of credit.

For the three months ended March 31, 2013, the Company did not engage in any off-balance sheet transactions reasonably likely to have a material effect on the Company's financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.
