NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

HCSB Financial Corporation (the "Company," which may be referred to as "we," "us," or "our") was incorporated on June 10, 1999 to become a holding company for Horry County State Bank (the "Bank"). The Bank is a state chartered bank which commenced operations on January 4, 1988. From our 11 branch locations, we offer a full range of deposit services, including checking accounts, savings accounts, certificates of deposit, money market accounts, and IRAs, as well as a broad range of non-deposit investment services.

HCSB Financial Trust I (the "Trust") is a special purpose subsidiary organized for the sole purpose of issuing trust preferred securities. The operations of the Trust have not been consolidated in these financial statements.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements for interim financial statements and, accordingly, they are condensed and omit disclosures, which would substantially duplicate those contained in the most recent annual report to shareholders. The financial statements as of September 30, 2012 and for the interim periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 are unaudited and, in our opinion, include all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation. Operating results for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2012. The financial information as of December 31, 2011 has been derived from the audited financial statements as of that date. For further information, refer to the financial statements and the notes included in HCSB Financial Corporation's 2011 Annual Report which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on March 23, 2012.

On March 6, 2009, as part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (the "TARP") Capital Purchase Program (the "CPP") established by the U.S. Department of the Treasury (the "U.S. Treasury") under the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2009 (the "EESA"), the Company issued and sold to the U.S. Treasury (i) 12,895 shares of its Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series T, having a liquidation preference of $1,000 per share (the "Series T Preferred Stock"), and (ii) a ten-year warrant to purchase up to 91,714 shares of its common stock at an initial exercise price of $21.09 per share (the "CPP Warrant"), for an aggregate purchase price of $12,895,000 in cash. Refer to the accompanying Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and results of Operations for additional information.

As of February 2011, the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, the Company's primary federal regulator, has required the Company to defer dividend payments on the 12,895 shares of the Series T Preferred Stock issued to the U.S. Treasury in March 2009 pursuant to the CPP and interest payments on the $6,000,000 of trust preferred securities issued in December 2004. Therefore, for each quarterly period beginning in February 2011, the Company notified the U.S. Treasury of its deferral of quarterly dividend payments on the 12,895 shares of Series T Preferred Stock and also informed the Trustee of the $6,000,000 of trust preferred securities of its deferral of the quarterly interest payments. The amount of each of the Company's quarterly interest payments was approximately $161,000 and, as of September 30, 2012, the Company had $1,128,000 of deferred dividend payments due on the Series T Preferred Stock issued to the U.S. Treasury. Because the Company has deferred these seven payments, the Company is prohibited from paying any dividends on its common stock until all deferred payments have been made in full. In addition, whenever dividends payable on the shares of the Series T Preferred Stock have been deferred for an aggregate of six or more quarterly dividend periods, the holders of the preferred stock have the right to elect two directors to fill newly created directorships at the Company's next annual meeting of the shareholders. As a result of the Company's deferral of dividend payments on the Series T Preferred Stock, the U.S. Treasury, the current holder of all 12,895 shares of the Series T Preferred Stock, requested the Company's non-objection to appoint a representative to observe monthly meetings of the Company's Board of Directors. The Company granted the Treasury's request and a representative of Treasury has attended the Company's monthly board meetings in June and July 2012. As of the date of this report, Treasury has not notified the Company whether it intends to elect two directors to fill newly created directorships at the Company's 2013 annual meeting of the shareholders. The Company has never paid a cash dividend, but as a result of the Company's financial condition and these restrictions on the Company, including the restrictions on the Bank's ability to pay dividends to the Company, the Company has not been permitted to pay a dividend on its common stock since 2009.

NOTE 2 – REGULATORY MATTERS AND GOING CONCERN CONSIDERATIONS

Consent Order with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and South Carolina Board of Financial Institutions

On February 10, 2011, the Bank entered into a Consent Order (the "Consent Order") with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the "FDIC") and the South Carolina Board of Financial Institutions (the "State Board").

The Consent Order conveys specific actions needed to address the Bank's current financial condition, primarily related to capital planning, liquidity/funds management, policy and planning issues, management oversight, loan concentrations and classifications, and non-performing loans. A summary of the requirements of the Consent Order and the Bank's status on complying with the Consent Order is as follows:

Requirements of the Consent Order

Bank's Compliance Status

Achieve and maintain, by July 10, 2011, Total Risk Based capital at least equal to 10% of risk-weighted assets and Tier 1 capital at least equal to 8% of total assets.

The Bank did not meet the capital ratios as specified in the Consent Order and, as a result, submitted a revised capital restoration plan to the FDIC on July 15, 2011. The revised capital restoration plan was determined by the FDIC to be insufficient and, as a result, we submitted a further revised capital restoration plan to the FDIC on September 30, 2011. We received the FDIC's non- objection to the further revised capital restoration plan on December 6, 2011.

The Bank is working diligently to increase its capital ratios in order to strengthen its balance sheet and satisfy the commitments required under the Consent Order. The Bank has engaged independent third parties to assist the Bank in its efforts to increase its capital ratios. In addition to continuing to search for additional capital, the Bank is also searching for a potential merger partner. Although the Bank is pursuing both of these approaches simultaneously, given the lack of a market for bank mergers, particularly in the Southeast, as a result of the current economic and regulatory climate, and the lack of success the Company has had to date in attempting to raise capital, there can be no assurances the Company will either raise additional capital or find a merger partner.

Submit, by April 11, 2011, a written capital plan to the supervisory authorities.

We believe we have complied with this provision of the Consent Order.

Establish, by March 12, 2011, a plan to monitor compliance with the Consent Order, which shall be monitored by the Bank's Directors' Committee.

We believe we have complied with this provision of the Consent Order. The Directors' Committee meets monthly and each meeting includes reviews and discussions of all areas required in the Consent Order.

Develop, by May 11, 2011, a written analysis and assessment of the Bank's management and staffing needs.

We believe we have complied with this provision of the Consent Order. In 2011, the Bank engaged an independent third party to perform an assessment of the Bank's staffing needs to ensure the Bank has an appropriate organizational structure with qualified management in place. The Board of Directors has reviewed all recommendations regarding the Bank's organizational structure.

Notify the supervisory authorities in writing of the
resignation or termination of any of the Bank's directors
or senior executive officers.
We believe we have complied with this provision of the
Consent Order.
Eliminate, by March 12, 2011, by charge-off or
collection, all assets or portions of assets classified
"Loss" and 50% of those assets classified "Doubtful."
We believe we have complied with this provision of the
Consent Order.
Review and update, by April 11, 2011, its policy to
ensure the adequacy of the Bank's allowance for loan
and lease losses, which must provide for a review of the
Bank's allowance for loan and lease losses at least once
each calendar quarter.
We believe we have complied with this provision of the
Consent Order.
Submit, by April 11, 2011, a written plan to the
supervisory authorities to reduce classified assets, which
shall include, among other things, a reduction of the
Bank's risk exposure in relationships with assets in
excess of $750,000 which are criticized as

In 2011, the Bank engaged an independent third party to assist management in its development of a strategic plan that achieves all requirements of the Consent Order. The Board of Directors has reviewed and adopted the Bank's strategic plan.

 

There can be no assurance that the Bank will be able to comply fully with the provisions of the Consent Order, and the determination of the Bank's compliance will be made by the FDIC and the State Board. However, we believe we are currently in substantial compliance with the Consent Order except for the requirements to achieve and maintain, by July 10, 2011, Total Risk Based capital at least equal to 10% of risk-weighted assets and Tier 1 capital at least equal to 8% of total assets. Should we fail to comply with the capital requirements in the Consent Order, or suffer a continued deterioration in our financial condition, the Bank may be placed into a federal conservatorship or receivership by the FDIC, with the FDIC appointed as conservator or receiver. In addition, the supervisory authorities may amend the Consent Order based on the results of their ongoing examinations.

As of September 30, 2012, the Company was categorized as "critically undercapitalized" and the Bank was categorized as "significantly undercapitalized." Our losses during 2010, 2011, and the first nine months of 2012 have materially adversely impacted our capital. As a result, we have been pursuing a plan through which to achieve the capital requirements set forth under the Consent Order which includes, among other things, the sale of assets, reduction in total assets, and reduction of overhead expenses, as well as raising additional capital at either the Bank or the holding company level and attempting to find a merger partner for the Company or the Bank.

We anticipate that we will need to raise a material amount of capital to return the Bank to an adequate level of capitalization and have been exploring a number of potential sources of capital. We have not had any success to date in raising this capital, and there are no assurances that we will be able to raise this capital on a timely basis or at all.

We are also working to improve asset quality and to reduce the Bank's investment in commercial real estate loans as a percentage of Tier 1 capital. The Company is reducing its reliance on brokered deposits and is committed to improving the Bank's capital position.

Written Agreement

On May 9, 2011, the Company entered into the Written Agreement with the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. The Written Agreement is designed to enhance the Company's ability to act as a source of strength to the Bank.

The Written Agreement contains provisions similar to those in the Bank's Consent Order. Specifically, pursuant to the Written Agreement, the Company agreed, among other things, to seek the prior written approval of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond before undertaking any of the following activities:

declaring or paying any dividends,

  • directly or indirectly taking dividends or any other form of payment representing a reduction in capital from the Bank,

  • making any distributions of interest, principal or other sums on subordinated debentures or trust preferred securities,

  • directly or indirectly, incurring, increasing or guarantying any debt, and

  • directly or indirectly, purchasing or redeeming any shares of its stock.

The Company also agreed to comply with certain notice provisions set forth in the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and regulations of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the "Federal Reserve") in appointing any new director or senior executive officer, or changing the responsibilities of any senior executive officer so that the officer would assume a different senior executive officer position. The Company is also required to comply with certain restrictions on indemnification and severance payments pursuant to the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and FDIC regulations.

We believe we are currently in substantial compliance with the Written Agreement.

Going Concern Considerations

The going concern assumption is a fundamental principle in the preparation of financial statements. It is the responsibility of management to assess the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. In assessing this assumption, the Company has taken into account all available information about the future, which is at least, but is not limited to, twelve months from the balance sheet date of September 30, 2012. The Company had a history of profitable operations and sufficient sources of liquidity to meet its short-term and long-term funding needs. However, the Bank's financial condition has suffered during 2010, 2011 and the first nine months of 2012 from the extraordinary effects of what may ultimately be the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.

The effects of the current economic environment are being felt across many industries, with financial services and residential real estate being particularly hard hit. The Bank, with a loan portfolio consisting of a concentration in commercial real estate loans, has seen a decline in the value of the collateral securing its portfolio as well as rapid deterioration in its borrowers' cash flow and ability to repay their outstanding loans to the Bank. As a result, the Bank's level of nonperforming assets increased substantially during 2010 and 2011. However, the Bank's nonperforming assets began to stabilize during the first nine months of 2012, as the Bank's nonperforming assets equaled $52,547,000, or 10.19% of assets, as of September 30, 2012 as compared to $60,423,000, or 11.28% of assets, as of December 31, 2011. Nevertheless, given the current economic climate, management recognizes the possibility of further deterioration in the loan portfolio for the remainder of 2012. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we recorded net loan charge-offs of $7,321,000, or 2.12% of average loans, as compared to net loan charge-offs of $14,989,000, or 3.57% of average loans, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

The Company and the Bank operate in a highly regulated industry and must plan for the liquidity needs of each entity separately. A variety of sources of liquidity have historically been available to the Bank to meet its short-term and long-term funding needs. Although a number of these sources have been limited following execution of the Consent Order, management has prepared forecasts of these sources of funds and the Bank's projected uses of funds during 2012 in an effort to ensure that the sources available are sufficient to meet the Bank's projected liquidity needs for this period.

Prior to the economic downturn, the Company, if needed, would have relied on dividends from the Bank as its primary source of liquidity. Currently, however, the Company has no available sources of liquidity. The Company is a legal entity separate and distinct from the Bank. Various legal limitations restrict the Bank from lending or otherwise supplying funds to the Company to meet its obligations, including paying dividends. In addition, the terms of the Consent Order described below further limits the Bank's ability to pay dividends to the Company to satisfy its funding needs. Unless the Company is able to raise capital, it will have no means of satisfying its funding needs.

Management believes the Bank's liquidity sources are adequate to meet its needs for at least the next 12 months, but if the Bank is unable to meet its liquidity needs, then the Bank may be placed into a federal conservatorship or receivership by the FDIC, with the FDIC appointed conservator or receiver.

The Company will also need to raise substantial additional capital to increase the Bank's capital levels to meet the standards set forth by the FDIC. As a result of the recent downturn in the financial markets and the financial condition of the Company and the Bank, the availability of capital has become significantly restricted or has become increasingly costly as compared to the prevailing market rates prior to the volatility. Management cannot predict when or if the capital markets will return to more favorable conditions. Management is actively evaluating a number of capital sources, asset reductions and other balance sheet management strategies to ensure that the Bank's projected level of regulatory capital can support its balance sheet. Receivership by the FDIC is based on the Bank's capital ratios rather than those of the Company. As of September 30, 2012, the Bank is categorized as significantly undercapitalized.

There can be no assurances that the Company or the Bank will be able to raise additional capital. An equity financing transaction by the Company would result in substantial dilution to the Company's current shareholders and could adversely affect the market price of the Company's common stock. Likewise, an equity financing transaction by the Bank would result in substantial dilution to the Company's ownership interest in the Bank. It is difficult to predict if these efforts will be successful, either on a short-term or long-term basis. Should these efforts be unsuccessful, the Company would be unable to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business.

As a result of management's assessment of the Company's ability to continue as a going concern, the accompanying consolidated financial statements for the Company have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future, and does not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability or classification of assets. There is substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

Schedule Of Compliance With Consent Order

Requirements of the Consent Order

Bank's Compliance Status

Achieve and maintain, by July 10, 2011, Total Risk Based capital at least equal to 10% of risk-weighted assets and Tier 1 capital at least equal to 8% of total assets.

The Bank did not meet the capital ratios as specified in the Consent Order and, as a result, submitted a revised capital restoration plan to the FDIC on July 15, 2011. The revised capital restoration plan was determined by the FDIC to be insufficient and, as a result, we submitted a further revised capital restoration plan to the FDIC on September 30, 2011. We received the FDIC's non- objection to the further revised capital restoration plan on December 6, 2011.

The Bank is working diligently to increase its capital ratios in order to strengthen its balance sheet and satisfy the commitments required under the Consent Order. The Bank has engaged independent third parties to assist the Bank in its efforts to increase its capital ratios. In addition to continuing to search for additional capital, the Bank is also searching for a potential merger partner. Although the Bank is pursuing both of these approaches simultaneously, given the lack of a market for bank mergers, particularly in the Southeast, as a result of the current economic and regulatory climate, and the lack of success the Company has had to date in attempting to raise capital, there can be no assurances the Company will either raise additional capital or find a merger partner.

Summary Of Significant Accounting Policies

NOTE 3 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Management's Estimates - In preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the balance sheet date and income and expenses for the period. Actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.

Material estimates that are particularly susceptible to significant change relate to the determination of the allowance for loan losses, including valuation allowances for impaired loans, and the carrying amount of real estate acquired in connection with foreclosures or in satisfaction of loans. Management must also make estimates in determining the estimated useful lives and methods for depreciating premises and equipment.

While management uses available information to recognize losses on loans and foreclosed real estate, future additions to the allowance may be necessary based on changes in local economic conditions. In addition, regulatory agencies, as an integral part of their examination process, periodically review the Company's allowances for losses on loans and foreclosed real estate. Such agencies may require the Company to recognize additions to the allowances based on their judgments about information available to them at the time of their examination. Because of these factors, it is reasonably possible that the allowances for losses on loans and foreclosed real estate may change materially in the near term.

Investment Securities - Investment securities available-for-sale by the Company are carried at amortized cost and adjusted to their estimated fair value for reporting purposes. The unrealized gain or loss is recorded in shareholders' equity net of the deferred tax effects. Management does not actively trade securities classified as available-for-sale, but intends to hold these securities for an indefinite period of time and may sell them prior to maturity to achieve certain objectives. Reductions in fair value considered by management to be other than temporary are reported as a realized loss and a reduction in the cost basis in the security. The adjusted cost basis of securities available-for-sale is determined by specific identification and is used in computing the realized gain or loss from a sales transaction.

Concentrations of Credit Risk - Financial instruments, which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk, consist principally of loans receivable, investment securities, federal funds sold and amounts due from banks.

The Company makes loans to individuals and small businesses for various personal and commercial purposes primarily throughout Horry County in South Carolina and Columbus and Brunswick counties in North Carolina. The Company's loan portfolio is not concentrated in loans to any single borrower or a relatively small number of borrowers. However, the loan portfolio does include a concentration in loans secured by residential and commercial real estate and commercial and industrial non-real estate loans. These loans are especially susceptible to being adversely effected by the current economic downturn. The current downturn in the real estate market has resulted in an increase in loan delinquencies, defaults and foreclosures, and these trends may continue, especially in the Myrtle Beach area. In some cases, this downturn has resulted in a significant impairment to the value of our collateral and our ability to sell the collateral upon foreclosure, and there is a risk that this trend will continue. The commercial real estate collateral in each case provides an alternate source of repayment in the event of default by the borrower and may deteriorate in value during the time the credit is extended. If real estate values in our market areas continue to decline, it is also more likely that we would be required to increase our allowance for loan losses.

In addition to monitoring potential concentrations of loans to particular borrowers or groups of borrowers, industries and geographic regions, management monitors exposure to credit risk from concentrations of lending products and practices such as loans that subject borrowers to substantial payment increases (e.g. principal deferral periods, loans with initial interest-only periods, etc.), and loans with high loan-to-value ratios. Additionally, there are industry practices that could subject the Company to increased credit risk should economic conditions change over the course of a loan's life. For example, the Company makes variable rate loans and fixed rate principal-amortizing loans with maturities prior to the loan being fully paid (i.e. balloon payment loans). These loans are underwritten and monitored to manage the associated risks.

Therefore, management believes that these particular practices do not subject the Company to unusual credit risk.

The Company's investment portfolio consists principally of obligations of the United States, its agencies or its corporations and general obligation municipal securities. In the opinion of management, there is no concentration of credit risk in its investment portfolio. The Company places its deposits and correspondent accounts with and sells its federal funds to high quality institutions. Management believes credit risk associated with correspondent accounts is not significant.

Allowance for Loan Losses - The allowance for loan losses is established as losses are estimated to have occurred through a provision for loan losses charged to earnings. Loan losses are charged against the allowance when management believes the uncollectability of a loan balance is confirmed. Subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance. The allowance for loan losses is evaluated on a regular basis by management and is based upon management's periodic review of the collectability of the loans in light of historical experiences, the nature and volume of the loan portfolio, adverse situations that may affect the borrower's ability to repay, estimated value of any underlying collateral and prevailing economic conditions. This evaluation is inherently subjective as it requires estimates that are susceptible to significant revision as more information becomes available. Management's judgments about the adequacy of the allowance are based on numerous assumptions about current events, which management believes to be reasonable, but which may or may not prove to be accurate. Thus, there can be no assurance that loan losses in future periods will not exceed the current allowance amount or that future increases in the allowance will not be required. No assurance can be given that management's ongoing evaluation of the loan portfolio in light of changing economic conditions and other relevant circumstances will not require significant future additions to the allowance, thus adversely affecting the operating results of the Company.

The allowance is subject to examination by regulatory agencies, which may consider such factors as the methodology used to determine adequacy and the size of the allowance relative to that of peer institutions, and other adequacy tests. In addition, such regulatory agencies could require the Company to adjust its allowance based on information available to them at their examination.

The methodology used to determine the reserve for unfunded lending commitments, which is included in other liabilities, is inherently similar to that used to determine the allowance for loan losses adjusted for factors specific to binding commitments, including the probability of funding and historical loss ratio.

Premises, Furniture and Equipment - Premises, furniture and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. The provision for depreciation is computed by the straight-line method. Rates of depreciation are generally based on the following estimated useful lives: buildings - 40 years; furniture and equipment - three to 25 years. The cost of assets sold or otherwise disposed of and the related accumulated depreciation is eliminated from the accounts, and the resulting gains or losses are reflected in the income statement.

Maintenance and repairs are charged to current expense as incurred, and the costs of major renewals and improvements are capitalized.

Other Real Estate Owned - Other real estate owned includes real estate acquired through foreclosure. Other real estate owned is initially recorded at the lower of cost (principal balance of the former loan plus costs of improvements) or fair value, less estimated costs to sell.

Any write-downs at the dates of acquisition are charged to the allowance for loan losses. Expenses to maintain such assets, subsequent write-downs, and gains and losses on disposal are included in other expenses.

 

Income and Expense Recognition - The accrual method of accounting is used for all significant categories of income and expense. Immaterial amounts of insurance commissions and other miscellaneous fees are reported when received.

Income Taxes - Amounts provided for income taxes are based on income reported for financial statement purposes. Deferred income taxes are provided for the temporary differences between the financial reporting basis and the tax basis of the Company's assets and liabilities. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. As of September 30, 2012, our gross deferred tax asset was $16,655,397. However, as of September 30, 2012, due to the Company's recent financial results, the uncertainty involved in projecting near-term profitability, and evaluation of appropriate tax planning strategies, management has provided a 100% valuation allowance for our deferred tax asset in the amount of $16,655,397. This valuation allowance reflects management's estimate that the deferred tax asset is not more-likely-than-not to be realized.

The Company believes that its income tax filing positions taken or expected to be taken in its tax returns will more likely than not be sustained upon audit by the taxing authorities and does not anticipate any adjustments that will result in a material adverse impact on the Company's financial condition, results of operations, or cash flow. Therefore, no reserves for uncertain income tax positions have been recorded.

Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share - Basic loss per common share is calculated by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of shares outstanding during the year. Diluted net loss per share is calculated in the same manner as basic loss per share as potential common share equivalents would dilute the loss. Retroactive recognition has been given for the effects of all stock dividends and splits in computing the weighted-average number of shares. The only potential common share equivalents are those related to stock options and the warrant which were excluded from the calculation since they are anti-dilutive.

Comprehensive Income (Loss) - Accounting principles generally require recognized income, expenses, gains, and losses to be included in net income. Although certain changes in assets and liabilities, such as unrealized gains and losses on available-for-sale securities, are reported as a separate component of the equity section of the balance sheet, such items, along with net income, are components of comprehensive income.

Statements of Cash Flows - For purposes of reporting cash flows, the Company considers certain highly liquid debt instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents include amounts due from banks, federal funds sold, and time deposits with other banks with maturities of three months or less.

Off-Balance-Sheet Financial Instruments - In the ordinary course of business, the Company enters into off-balance-sheet financial instruments consisting of commitments to extend credit and letters of credit. These financial instruments are recorded in the financial statements when they become payable by the customer.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements – The following is a summary of recent authoritative pronouncements that could impact the accounting, reporting, and / or disclosure of financial information by the Company.

In April 2011, the criteria used to determine effective control of transferred assets in the Transfers and Servicing topic of the ASC was amended by ASU 2011-03. The requirement for the transferor to have the ability to repurchase or redeem the financial assets on substantially the agreed terms and the collateral maintenance implementation guidance related to that criterion were removed from the assessment of effective control. The other criteria to assess effective control were not changed. The amendments were effective for the Company on January 1, 2012 and had no effect on the financial statements.

ASU 2011-04 was issued in May 2011 to amend the Fair Value Measurement topic of the ASC by clarifying the application of existing fair value measurement and disclosure requirements and by changing particular principles or requirements for measuring fair value or for disclosing information about fair value measurements. The amendments were effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2012 and had no effect on the financial statements.

The Comprehensive Income topic of the ASC was amended in September 2011. The amendment requires consecutive presentation of the statement of net income and other comprehensive income and requires an entity to present reclassification adjustments from other comprehensive income to net income on the face of the financial statements. The amendments were applicable to the Company on January 1, 2012 and have been applied retrospectively. In December 2011, the topic was further amended to defer the effective date of presenting reclassification adjustments from other comprehensive income to net income on the face of the financial statements. Companies should continue to report reclassifications out of accumulated other comprehensive income consistent with the presentation requirements in effect prior to the amendments while FASB redeliberates future requirements.

ASU 2012-03 was released in August 2012 to reflect technical changes in accordance with the SEC's release No. 33-9250, Technical Amendments to Commission Rules and Forms Related to the FASB's Accounting Standards Codification, which was issued to match its regulations with GAAP. The changes were considered relatively minor and will not have a material impact on the Company's financial statements.

In October 2012, ASU 2012-04 was issued to make technical corrections and improvements to the ASC. The corrections are considered narrow and are not expected to have an impact on the financial statements.

Other accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by the FASB or other standards-setting bodies are not expected to have a material impact on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Risks and Uncertainties - In the normal course of its business, the Company encounters two significant types of risks: economic and regulatory. There are three main components of economic risk: interest rate risk, credit risk and market risk. The Company is subject to interest rate risk to the degree that its interest-bearing liabilities mature or reprice at different speeds, or on different basis, than its interest-earning assets. Credit risk is the risk of default on the Company's loan portfolio that results from borrower's inability or unwillingness to make contractually required payments. Market risk reflects changes in the value of collateral underlying loans receivable and the valuation of real estate held by the Company.

The Company is subject to the regulations of various governmental agencies. These regulations can and do change significantly from period to period. The Company also undergoes periodic examinations by the regulatory agencies, which may subject it to further changes with respect to asset valuations, amounts of required loss allowances and operating restrictions from the regulators' judgments based on information available to them at the time of their examination.

Additionally, the Company is subject to certain regulations due to our participation in the U.S. Treasury's CPP. Pursuant to the terms of the CPP Purchase Agreement between us and the Treasury, we adopted certain standards for executive compensation and corporate governance for the period during which the Treasury holds the equity issued pursuant to the CPP Purchase Agreement, including the common stock which may be issued pursuant to the CPP Warrant. These standards generally apply to our named executive officers. The standards include (1) ensuring that incentive compensation for senior executives does not encourage unnecessary and excessive risks that threaten the value of the financial institution; (2) required clawback of any bonus or incentive compensation paid to a senior executive based on statements of earnings, gains or other criteria that are later proven to be materially inaccurate; (3) prohibition on making golden parachute payments to senior executives; (4) prohibition on providing tax gross-up provisions; and (5) agreement not to deduct for tax purposes executive compensation in excess of $500,000 for each senior executive. In particular, the change to the deductibility limit on executive compensation will likely increase the overall cost of our compensation programs in future periods and may make it more difficult to attract suitable candidates to serve as executive officers.

Legislation that has been adopted after we closed on our sale of Series T Preferred Stock and the CPP Warrant to the U.S. Treasury for $12.9 million pursuant to the CPP on March 6, 2009, or any legislation or regulations that may be implemented in the future, may have a material impact on the terms of our CPP transaction with the Treasury.

Summary Of Significant Accounting Policies [Abstract]  
Management's Estimates

Management's Estimates - In preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the balance sheet date and income and expenses for the period. Actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.

Material estimates that are particularly susceptible to significant change relate to the determination of the allowance for loan losses, including valuation allowances for impaired loans, and the carrying amount of real estate acquired in connection with foreclosures or in satisfaction of loans. Management must also make estimates in determining the estimated useful lives and methods for depreciating premises and equipment.

While management uses available information to recognize losses on loans and foreclosed real estate, future additions to the allowance may be necessary based on changes in local economic conditions. In addition, regulatory agencies, as an integral part of their examination process, periodically review the Company's allowances for losses on loans and foreclosed real estate. Such agencies may require the Company to recognize additions to the allowances based on their judgments about information available to them at the time of their examination. Because of these factors, it is reasonably possible that the allowances for losses on loans and foreclosed real estate may change materially in the near term.

Investment Securities

Investment Securities - Investment securities available-for-sale by the Company are carried at amortized cost and adjusted to their estimated fair value for reporting purposes. The unrealized gain or loss is recorded in shareholders' equity net of the deferred tax effects. Management does not actively trade securities classified as available-for-sale, but intends to hold these securities for an indefinite period of time and may sell them prior to maturity to achieve certain objectives. Reductions in fair value considered by management to be other than temporary are reported as a realized loss and a reduction in the cost basis in the security. The adjusted cost basis of securities available-for-sale is determined by specific identification and is used in computing the realized gain or loss from a sales transaction.

Nonmarketable Equity Securities
Loans Receivable
Concentrations Of Credit Risk

Concentrations of Credit Risk - Financial instruments, which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk, consist principally of loans receivable, investment securities, federal funds sold and amounts due from banks.

The Company makes loans to individuals and small businesses for various personal and commercial purposes primarily throughout Horry County in South Carolina and Columbus and Brunswick counties in North Carolina. The Company's loan portfolio is not concentrated in loans to any single borrower or a relatively small number of borrowers. However, the loan portfolio does include a concentration in loans secured by residential and commercial real estate and commercial and industrial non-real estate loans. These loans are especially susceptible to being adversely effected by the current economic downturn. The current downturn in the real estate market has resulted in an increase in loan delinquencies, defaults and foreclosures, and these trends may continue, especially in the Myrtle Beach area. In some cases, this downturn has resulted in a significant impairment to the value of our collateral and our ability to sell the collateral upon foreclosure, and there is a risk that this trend will continue. The commercial real estate collateral in each case provides an alternate source of repayment in the event of default by the borrower and may deteriorate in value during the time the credit is extended. If real estate values in our market areas continue to decline, it is also more likely that we would be required to increase our allowance for loan losses.

In addition to monitoring potential concentrations of loans to particular borrowers or groups of borrowers, industries and geographic regions, management monitors exposure to credit risk from concentrations of lending products and practices such as loans that subject borrowers to substantial payment increases (e.g. principal deferral periods, loans with initial interest-only periods, etc.), and loans with high loan-to-value ratios. Additionally, there are industry practices that could subject the Company to increased credit risk should economic conditions change over the course of a loan's life. For example, the Company makes variable rate loans and fixed rate principal-amortizing loans with maturities prior to the loan being fully paid (i.e. balloon payment loans). These loans are underwritten and monitored to manage the associated risks.

Therefore, management believes that these particular practices do not subject the Company to unusual credit risk.

The Company's investment portfolio consists principally of obligations of the United States, its agencies or its corporations and general obligation municipal securities. In the opinion of management, there is no concentration of credit risk in its investment portfolio. The Company places its deposits and correspondent accounts with and sells its federal funds to high quality institutions. Management believes credit risk associated with correspondent accounts is not significant.

Allowance For Loan Losses

Allowance for Loan Losses - The allowance for loan losses is established as losses are estimated to have occurred through a provision for loan losses charged to earnings. Loan losses are charged against the allowance when management believes the uncollectability of a loan balance is confirmed. Subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance. The allowance for loan losses is evaluated on a regular basis by management and is based upon management's periodic review of the collectability of the loans in light of historical experiences, the nature and volume of the loan portfolio, adverse situations that may affect the borrower's ability to repay, estimated value of any underlying collateral and prevailing economic conditions. This evaluation is inherently subjective as it requires estimates that are susceptible to significant revision as more information becomes available. Management's judgments about the adequacy of the allowance are based on numerous assumptions about current events, which management believes to be reasonable, but which may or may not prove to be accurate. Thus, there can be no assurance that loan losses in future periods will not exceed the current allowance amount or that future increases in the allowance will not be required. No assurance can be given that management's ongoing evaluation of the loan portfolio in light of changing economic conditions and other relevant circumstances will not require significant future additions to the allowance, thus adversely affecting the operating results of the Company.

The allowance is subject to examination by regulatory agencies, which may consider such factors as the methodology used to determine adequacy and the size of the allowance relative to that of peer institutions, and other adequacy tests. In addition, such regulatory agencies could require the Company to adjust its allowance based on information available to them at their examination.

The methodology used to determine the reserve for unfunded lending commitments, which is included in other liabilities, is inherently similar to that used to determine the allowance for loan losses adjusted for factors specific to binding commitments, including the probability of funding and historical loss ratio.

Premises, Furniture And Equipment

Premises, Furniture and Equipment - Premises, furniture and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. The provision for depreciation is computed by the straight-line method. Rates of depreciation are generally based on the following estimated useful lives: buildings - 40 years; furniture and equipment - three to 25 years. The cost of assets sold or otherwise disposed of and the related accumulated depreciation is eliminated from the accounts, and the resulting gains or losses are reflected in the income statement.

Maintenance and repairs are charged to current expense as incurred, and the costs of major renewals and improvements are capitalized.

Other Real Estate Owned

Other Real Estate Owned - Other real estate owned includes real estate acquired through foreclosure. Other real estate owned is initially recorded at the lower of cost (principal balance of the former loan plus costs of improvements) or fair value, less estimated costs to sell.

Any write-downs at the dates of acquisition are charged to the allowance for loan losses. Expenses to maintain such assets, subsequent write-downs, and gains and losses on disposal are included in other expenses.

Income And Expense Recognition

Income and Expense Recognition - The accrual method of accounting is used for all significant categories of income and expense. Immaterial amounts of insurance commissions and other miscellaneous fees are reported when received.

Income Taxes

Income Taxes - Amounts provided for income taxes are based on income reported for financial statement purposes. Deferred income taxes are provided for the temporary differences between the financial reporting basis and the tax basis of the Company's assets and liabilities. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. As of September 30, 2012, our gross deferred tax asset was $16,655,397. However, as of September 30, 2012, due to the Company's recent financial results, the uncertainty involved in projecting near-term profitability, and evaluation of appropriate tax planning strategies, management has provided a 100% valuation allowance for our deferred tax asset in the amount of $16,655,397. This valuation allowance reflects management's estimate that the deferred tax asset is not more-likely-than-not to be realized.

The Company believes that its income tax filing positions taken or expected to be taken in its tax returns will more likely than not be sustained upon audit by the taxing authorities and does not anticipate any adjustments that will result in a material adverse impact on the Company's financial condition, results of operations, or cash flow. Therefore, no reserves for uncertain income tax positions have been recorded.

Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share

Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share - Basic loss per common share is calculated by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of shares outstanding during the year. Diluted net loss per share is calculated in the same manner as basic loss per share as potential common share equivalents would dilute the loss. Retroactive recognition has been given for the effects of all stock dividends and splits in computing the weighted-average number of shares. The only potential common share equivalents are those related to stock options and the warrant which were excluded from the calculation since they are anti-dilutive.

Although certain changes in assets and liabilities, such as unrealized gains and losses on available-for-sale securities, are reported as a separate component of the equity section of the balance sheet, such items, along with net income, are components of comprehensive income.

Cash equivalents include amounts due from banks, federal funds sold, and time deposits with other banks with maturities of three months or less.

These financial instruments are recorded in the financial statements when they become payable by the customer.
