- Sep. 12, 2013 - GREER, S.C. --
Greer Bancshares Incorporated (the “Company”), the parent company of Greer State Bank, revised its previously reported second quarter net income attributable to common shareholders from $7,761,000 or $3.12 per diluted common share to $6,285,000 or $2.53 per diluted common share. The revision was due to a re-evaluation of the intra-period tax allocation made on the non-cash reversal of the deferred tax asset valuation which resulted in the recognition of tax expense for 2013. The valuation allowance reversal was recorded as $5,386,000 and has been revised to be $3,910,000. Greer State Bank remains well capitalized with tier one leverage capital of 10.52% after the revision, which was previously reported as 10.57%. The Company filed a Form 8-K and a revised Form 10-Q/A with the Securities Exchange Commission and both filings are also available via Greer State Bank’s website.
