STATESBORO, Ga. - Feb. 10, 2014 - PRLog -- AgSouth Farm Credit CEO Bill Spigener recently announced that the customer-owned cooperative had record net earnings of $49.9 million during 2013, an increase of $7.6 million over the Association’s $42.4 million in earnings from 2012. Spigener attributes the increase in earnings to a one-time special distribution of patronage from AgFirst Farm Credit Bank. “The 2013 special distribution exceeded our expectation, and these funds along with fee-based income, made 2013 earnings a record.”

At the January meeting of the Board of Directors, Chairman Charles C. Rucks of Spalding County, Georgia, stated that, “2013 ended on a high note with increased earnings and loan growth. We are grateful to our stockholders and customer base who help make this cooperative so successful. We look forward to providing a strong patronage distribution in the spring of 2014 due to these favorable financial results.”

According to CFO Alisa D. Gunter, “The Association remains financially strong, and credit is available for farmers, agribusiness, landowners and other qualified borrowers. AgSouth is dedicated to becoming the lender of choice for eligible borrowers in our territory, and we’re extremely proud of our patronage program. AgSouth has continuously paid a significant return to its member/borrowers since 1991.”
