FAYETTEVILLE, Ga., Oct. 27, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- SouthCrest Financial Group, Inc. (OTCCBB:SCSG) reported net income of $1,513,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 compared to $888,000 for the same quarter a year ago.

Most of the increase in net income for both the quarter and year-to-date compared to the prior year was the result of the Company's merger with First Polk Bankshares, Inc. on September 30, 2004. Assets and liabilities, and results of operations for First Polk are only included in the balance sheets and income statements of the Company from the date of merger going forward. On a per share basis, results were $0.42 per share for the current quarter compared to $0.40 for the same period a year ago, and $1.03 per share for the current year-to-date period compared to $1.23 for the same period in 2004. Reductions in earnings per share are mostly due to dilution resulting from increased number of shares resulting from the merger with First Polk.
