Corporation today announced that, in connection with the preparation and
review of its financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30,
2009, it recorded a larger second quarter 2009 dividend and accretion on
preferred stock than it originally announced in its press release issued on
August 6, 2009. As reflected in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q
filed on August 14, 2009, dividend and accretion on preferred stock was
$99,000 for both the three- and six-months periods as compared to $55,000 as
previously announced. These changes resulted in the Company's consolidated
results of operations reflecting after tax losses available to common
shareholders for the quarter and year-to-date period ended June 30, 2009, of
$1,578,000 and $2,233,000, respectively, as compared with the previously
announced net loss available to common shareholders of $1,534,000 for the
quarter and $2,189,000 for the year-to-date. Basic and diluted loss per common
share for the three- and six-months periods were $0.41 and $0.57,
respectively, as compared with the previously announced amounts of $0.38 and
$0.55, respectively. Also, as a result of these changes ROA and ROE changed
from (.73)% and (9.14)% to (.74)% and (9.33)%, respectively. This revision
relates only to the Company's operating results for the three and six months
ended June 30, 2009, and does not affect any financial statements previously
filed by the Company with the SEC for any period.
