Jefferson Security Bank (OTCBB: JFWV) reported net income of $161,591 or $0.56 per share, for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.  Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $352,331, or $1.22 per share.

            Commenting on the results, K. Stephen Morris, President and CEO, said:  “Our results continue to be impacted by the economic conditions in our markets.  Loan demand remains low and historically low interest rates have reduced the interest earned on our loan and investment portfolios.  We have recognized savings in interest and noninterest expenses and continue to pursue a very conservative approach to managing the Bank”.

As of June 30, 2012, total assets of the Bank were $283.5 million, loans, net of reserve, were $134.6 million and deposits were $258.7 million.  The annualized return on average assets was 0.25%, and the annualized return on average equity was 3.53% for the six months ended June 30, 2012.  At June 30, 2012, net loans to deposits was 52.05% and book value per share was $69.54.  Additional financial data is provided below.
