Vito S. Pantilione, President and Chief Executive Officer of Parke Bancorp and Parke Bank, provided the following statement:

"We are pleased with the double digit increase in earnings for our third quarter 2013 comparison to the third quarter of 2012, and the increase in 2013 year-to-date earnings as compared to the same period in 2012. Our net interest margin remains strong, even though interest rates have remained very low. Our metrics are improving, including our nonperforming loans and our 30 to 89 day delinquencies. Although we have a way to go we believe we are heading in the right direction. We continue to be very diligent in reflecting changes in the nonperforming asset values on our balance sheet, while continuing to work very hard on liquidating these nonperforming loans. Our loan growth has improved in 2013, which helps provide additional interest income and fees. Parke Bancorp's capital continues to grow, up 4.9% since yearend, providing additional strength to our balance sheet, which helps to position us to be able to take advantage of opportunities when they arise. We continue to work hard to control expenses, enhancing shareholder value."
