Bank of South Carolina Corporation Announces First Quarter Earnings

CHARLESTON, S.C., April 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bank of South Carolina Corporation (Nasdaq: BKSC) announced unaudited earnings of $1,588,779 or $0.29 and $0.28 basic and diluted earnings per share, respectively, for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 – an increase of 8.52% over earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 of $1,464,106, or $0.26 basic and diluted earnings per share. Annualized returns on average assets and average equity for the three months ended March 31, 2023 were 1.00% and 15.73%, respectively, compared with March 31, 2022 annualized returns on average assets and average equity of 0.89% and 11.40%, respectively.

Fleetwood S. Hassell, President of the Bank of South Carolina, stated, "Although we are ahead of 2022 first quarter results, we are behind in our profit plan for the first three months of this year. This outcome is the result of precipitous increases in our deposit costs to meet the intense competition amongst banks, brokerages, and the U.S. Treasury. Although loan interest income has increased, our margins remain thin.  The potential for further rate increases by the Federal Reserve is uncertain. Nonetheless, our business model and asset quality remain sound as we continue to meet the banking needs of our clients in the South Carolina Lowcountry – most notably with the opening of our sixth office later this quarter on James Island."
