Bank of South Carolina Corporation Announces Annual and Fourth Quarter Earnings

01/13/2022 | 08:01am

CHARLESTON, S.C., Jan. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bank of South Carolina Corporation (Nasdaq: BKSC) announced unaudited earnings of $6,744,866 or $1.22 and $1.19 basic and diluted per share, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2021 – an increase of $284,235 or 4.40% from earnings for the year ended December 31, 2020 of $6,460,631 or $1.17 and $1.14 basic and diluted per share, respectively. Earnings for the three months ended December 31, 2021 decreased $196,036 or 11.30% to $1,539,170 compared to $1,735,206 for the three months ended December 31, 2020. Returns on average assets and average equity for the year ended December 31, 2021 were 1.14% and 12.30%, respectively, compared with 2020 returns on average assets and average equity of 1.28% and 11.93%, respectively.

Fleetwood S. Hassell, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "This year, we will celebrate our 35th anniversary as the oldest bank headquartered in Charleston. Despite lower fourth quarter earnings, 2021 was another successful year as we were able to meet and exceed our profit plan, resulting in the third most profitable year in our history. Fees realized from PPP and mortgage originations greatly helped to offset reduced interest income generated from this exceptionally low interest rate environment. We are prepared to meet the challenges of 2022: razor-thin margins, suitable investments of our resources, diminished fee income, and a tight labor market. Anticipated Federal Reserve rate increases will help to mitigate some of this; however, an expanded mortgage department and increased loan volume will be the keys to driving more revenue for the bank. Nonetheless, our employees remain our greatest asset and, once again, will see us through another successful year of relationship banking with unparalleled service, responsiveness, and attention to detail."
