Commenting on the first quarter results, Earl W. Worley, Jr., President and CEO of the Company, stated, "At March 31, 2024, the Bank is on target with our projections for 2024. The first quarter results show a quarter of solid earnings and balance sheet growth due to the good work of all our team members across our foot print. While we experienced an increase of nearly $45.0 million in assets during the quarter, this growth was primarily attributable to transitory deposits from several of the Bank's larger customers. If you discount the large deposits, the Bank still maintained solid asset growth. In addition, while interest rates do not appear to be moderating in the near term, we believe based on our projections that we are poised to continue to achieve positive results for our stakeholders."

Worley continued by stating, "KS Bank is proud that throughout the year of 2024 we are celebrating our 100th anniversary in business, a milestone few other businesses have reached. Our longevity is a testament to the trust and loyalty of our Customers, Board of Directors and our Shareholders. We're excited for the future of KS Bank and are committed to continuing to offer superior service and support for the next 100 years."

In addition, the Company announced today that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.26 per share for stockholders of record as of April 29, 2024 with payment to be made on May 9, 2024. This is an increase of approximately 30.0% from the dividend paid in the first quarter of 2023 and a 4.0% increase from the dividend paid for the fourth quarter of 2023.

KS Bank continues to be well capitalized according to regulatory standards with a Community Bank Leverage Ratio of 9.63%, compared to 9.67% at December 31, 2023.
