This release may contain forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties which may cause actual results to differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors including but not limited to our ability to pay cash dividends in the future, continue the strong performance of the Company, whether the economy continues to stabilize and our ability to expand our lending opportunities and further reduce our NPAs or to originate new loans and, therefore, readers should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements.
