Savannah Bancorp Reports 5.9 Percent Second Quarter EPS Increase and Declares Regular Quarterly Dividend
SAVANNAH, Ga., July 18, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- The Savannah Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:SAVB) reported net income for the second quarter 2006 of $2,538,000, up 16 percent from $2,184,000 in the second quarter 2005. Net income per diluted share was $0.54 compared to $0.51 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2005, an increase of 5.9 percent. Earnings growth moderated in the second quarter due to higher than anticipated startup costs in Harbourside Community Bank and a slight net interest margin decline from the first quarter 2006. The margin decline resulted from faster deposit repricing in a very competitive market and slower loan growth than anticipated.
