Total assets were $624.6 million at March 31, 2011, compared to $452.4 million at March 31, 2010. Net loans increased by 28.6% to $492.6 million as of March 31, 2011, compared to $383.0 million as of March 31, 2010. Total deposits increased 37.3% to $529.8 million as of March 31, 2011, compared to $385.9 million as of March 31, 2010.

On November 16, 2010, Bancorp acquired Atlantic BancGroup, Inc. ("ABI") pursuant to an agreement and plan of merger that provided for the merger of ABI with and into Bancorp.  The ABI merger increased our branch locations from five full-service branches to eight full-service branches as well as expanded our geographic footprint into the Jacksonville beaches market.  Also on November 16, 2010, and immediately following the ABI merger, Bancorp completed the sale of 3,888,889 shares of its common stock to four accredited investors at a purchase price of $9.00 per share pursuant to a stock purchase agreement.  This financing was led by CapGen Capital Group IV LP ("CapGen") and resulted in total gross proceeds of $35.0 million to Bancorp.  The net proceeds from the sale after offering expenses were $34.7 million and were used to fund the merger and integration of ABI and Oceanside Bank into the Company.

On February 11th, as a result of the Company's strategy to strengthen its balance sheet by lowering the amount of substandard assets, the Bank sold 40 substandard loans for $13.9 million through a bulk sale.  These loans were classified as held-for-sale on the Company's consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2010 and through the date of the sale at their fair value.

The Bank continued to exceed regulatory standards of being "well capitalized" with total risk-based capital, Tier 1 risk-based capital and Tier 1 leverage capital at 10.7%, 9.4% and 7.8%, respectively, at March 31, 2011.

Price Schwenck, CEO of the Company and Executive Chairman of the Bank, made these comments:  "The first full quarter following the merger has been dynamic.  I am grateful for the support of our shareholders, customers and employees who have all played a critical role in the successful integration of the two companies.  There is no doubt that we are today a company with a much stronger balance sheet and well positioned for continued success."

As of March 31, 2011, nonperforming assets were $40.6 million, or 6.5% of total assets, compared to $11.1 million, or 2.5% of total assets a year ago. During the first quarter, the Bank recorded $1.9 million in provision for loan losses, increasing the loan loss reserve to 2.25% from 1.95% a year earlier.  The increase in nonperforming assets from the first quarter of 2010 to the first quarter of 2011 is due to significant increases throughout the remaining quarters of 2010 primarily as a result of the challenging current economic environment in which the Company operates.  For the quarter ending December 31, 2010, the acquisition of ABI increased nonperforming loans by $5.5 million.  The first quarter of 2011 indicates a slight stabilization of our nonperforming assets.

The following table presents unaudited pro forma information for the first three quarters of 2010 as if the acquisition of ABI had occurred at the beginning of 2010.  The pro forma financial information is not necessarily indicative of the results that would have occurred for the period had the transaction been effected on the assumed date.

The increase in loans past due 30-89 days still accruing interest is being driven by loan absorption as a result of the merger with ABI as well as the prolonged weakened economic conditions.

The Company had net loan charge-offs of $3.7 million during the quarter, compared to $1.6 million during the same period in the prior year.  The increase in net loan charge-offs is primarily attributable to the continued soft real estate market in the geographic environment in which the Company operates.

Net income for the first quarter of 2011 increased to $439 thousand, compared to the loss of $988 thousand incurred in the first quarter of 2010. The increase in net income is primarily driven by the acquisition of ABI (including the net accretion of purchase accounting adjustments).  Net income also increased due to a decrease in the provision for loan losses.  Pre-provision, pre-OREO and pre-tax earnings were $2.3 million for the quarter ending March 31, 2011, compared to $1.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 and $685 thousand for the quarter ended December 31, 2010.  The increase in pre-provision, pre-OREO expenses and income, and pre-tax earnings from the previous quarters is due to the acquisition of ABI.

Interest income increased by $1.9 million when compared to the first quarter of 2010.  This was due to interest income on the loans acquired in the merger with ABI that was above the contractual rate of interest as a result of purchase accounting adjustments and was approximately $632 thousand.  This additional interest income is also driving the increase in net interest margin from 3.40% in the first quarter of 2010, to 4.06% in the first quarter of 2011.  The impact of the additional income adds approximately 43 basis points to the net interest margin for the period ending March 31, 2011.  Compared to the prior year quarter, interest expense for the first quarter of 2011 declined by $356 thousand as a result of the continued low interest rate environment.

Noninterest income increased to $396 thousand compared to $248 thousand in the first quarter of 2010.  The increase is driven largely by the increased volume of transactions as a result of the merger with ABI.

Noninterest expense increased $1.2 million, or 37.7%, for the quarter ended March 31, 2011, compared to the same period in 2010.  The increase in expense is attributable to additional costs absorbed as a result of the merger with ABI as our branch locations increased from five locations as of March 31, 2010 to eight locations as of March 31, 2011.

Gilbert J. Pomar, III, President of the Company stated, "We are pleased that we have been able to fully integrate ABI into our Company which has provided greater customer convenience and further supports our strategic focus on core deposit generation and increased market share in the Northeast Florida market."

Jacksonville Bancorp, Inc., a bank holding company, is the parent of The Jacksonville Bank, a Florida state-chartered bank focusing on the Northeast Florida market with approximately $625 million in assets and eight full-service branches in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida, as well as our virtual branch. The Jacksonville Bank opened for business on May 28, 1999 and provides a variety of community banking services to businesses and individuals in Jacksonville, Florida.

This press release contains non-GAAP financial disclosures for pre-provision, pre-OREO and pre-tax earnings.  The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operational performance and to enhance investors' overall understanding of such financial performance.  As analysts and investors view pre-provision, pre-OREO and pre-tax earnings as an indicator of the Company's ability to absorb credit losses, we disclose this amount in addition to net earnings.  Please refer to the table at the end of this release for a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the GAAP financial measures.
