            Jefferson Security Bank (OTCBB: JFWV) reported net income of $314,258 or $1.09 per share, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.  Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $666,588, or $2.31 per share.

            Commenting on the results, K. Stephen Morris, President and CEO, said:  “Our results for both the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012 reflect the continuing sluggish economy in our markets. Loan demand continues to be negligible yet we have increased profitability by reducing rates on certain deposits and reducing noninterest expense. The Board of Directors continues to follow a cautious and conservative approach as we wait to see how the economic and political situation unfolds.”

As of September 30, 2012, total assets of the Bank were $289.3 million, loans, net of reserve, were $133.9 million and deposits were $265.2 million.  The annualized return on average assets was 0.31%, and the annualized return on average equity was 4.40% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.  At September 30, 2012, net loans to deposits was 50.52% and book value per share was $72.50.  Additional financial data is provided below.
