Regulation FD Disclosure

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

The Chief Executive Officer of Southcoast Financial Corporation is scheduled to make a presentation at the FIG Partners 9th Annual Bank CEO Forum on September 17, 2013, and discuss results of operations through June 30, 2013. The discussion is planned to cover, or be derived from, information previously disclosed in Southcoast's filings with the SEC and public filings with federal financial institution regulators, as well as publicly available information about the demographics of Southcoast's market areas, which indicate improving unemployment, increasing real estate activity, announcements of new business and expansions, and significant population and income growth.

In addition, he plans briefly to discuss Southcoast's strategy and vision for growth, including as key elements, managing asset quality, enhancing the balance sheet, and enhancing income and improving margins. The discussion will cover plans to (1) grow the balance sheet by taking advantage of market disruption from mergers and acquisitions, strategically hiring lending officers and evaluating possible branch opportunities, and continuing to focus on transaction deposit growth by targeting small businesses; (2) increase noninterest income by offering wealth management services, pursuing deposit service charge strategies, and selling new treasury management services and products; (3) continue to focus on asset quality and preservation of capital by continuing to strengthen risk management through improved underwriting and credit administration support, selectively replacing non-performing assets with high quality loans targeted at small businesses, and aggressively managing early stage delinquencies; and
(4) invest in brand and customer experience by increasing awareness through an integrated marketing program, improving technology to align with customer needs, and implementing enhanced culture training.
