Community Capital Bancshares Announces Third Quarter Results of Operations

/PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Community Capital Bancshares Inc. (Other OTC: ALBY) today announced a loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 of $5,325,000 or $1.74 per basic share. This compares with income of $35,000 or $0.01 per basic share for the nine months ended September 30, 2007. For the three months ended September 30, 2008, the Company incurred a loss of $3,059,000 or $0.99 per basic share, in comparison to the loss of $447,000 or $ 0.15 per basic share made during the same period of 2007.

Net income for the year has been negatively impacted by loan loss provisions of $4,380,000 necessary to provide for potential losses in the loan portfolio. For the nine months ended there have been $1,102,000 of losses and write downs of foreclosed property as compared to $90,000 in 2007. During the third quarter of 2008, the company recognized a loss of $936,000 due to other than temporary impairment on FNMA stock held in its investment portfolio.

Total assets as of September 30, 2008 were $198,933,000 as compared to $248,840,000 as of September 30, 2007. The decreased level of assets is the result of loan reductions and the efforts by the subsidiary Banks to remain compliant with the capital provisions of the Formal Agreements with the OCC.

John H. Monk Jr., President and CEO commented, "We continue to aggressively pursue the collection of our troubled loans. The current market conditions pose additional problems for the valuation and marketing of our troubled assets. We will continue to identify and dispose of these assets. We feel that we have sufficient capital levels to weather this storm. Our Tier 1 risk based capital ratio is over 17.5% at September 30, 2008. During the fourth quarter we will engage an independent valuation firm to test our Goodwill for possible impairment." John Monk continued, "We appreciate the continued support of our customers and look forward to continuing to serve them in the coming years."
