PRESS RELEASE - AUGUST 1, 2005                     FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

1st STATE BANCORP, INC.                            FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT:
                                                         JAMES C. McGILL
                                                         (336) 227-8861

              1st STATE BANCORP, INC. ANNOUNCES QUARTERLY EARNINGS

BURLINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA       1st STATE BANCORP, INC.          (NASDAQ: FSBC)



1st State Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq: FSBC), the holding company for 1st State Bank,
has reported earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2005 of $738,000, down
$235,000, or 24.2% from the same period of the previous year. The decrease in
earnings during the three month period ending June 30, 2005 was due in part to
the Company's recorded loan loss provision of $500,000 compared to $60,000 for
the same period last year. The Company reported basic and diluted earnings per
share of $0.27 and $0.25, respectively, for the quarter ended June 30, 2005
compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.35 and $0.33,
respectively, for the quarter ended June 30, 2004.


Net income for the nine months ended June 30, 2005 decreased $36,000 to
$2,474,000, from net income of $2,510,000 earned in the same period of the
previous year. Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.88 and $0.84 per
share, respectively, for the nine months ended June 30, 2005, compared with
$0.89 and $0.85 per share, respectively, in the same period of the previous
year. The decrease in earnings resulted from increased provision for loan losses
and decreased non-interest income which were offset somewhat by increased net
interest income.


Net interest income increased $240,000, or 8.2%, to $3.2 million for the quarter
ended June 30, 2005 from the $2.9 million recorded in the quarter ended June 30,
2004. The net interest income as a percentage of average interest earning assets
increased 33 basis points to 3.62% for the quarter ended June 30, 2005 from the
3.29% reported for the quarter ended June 30, 2004. Net interest income
increased $784,000, or 9.2% to $9.3 million for the nine months ended June 30,
2005 from the prior year's net interest income of $8.5 million. This improvement
results primarily from increased interest income from the recent rise in short
term rates by the Federal Reserve Board.


Nonperforming assets totaled $3,101,000 at June 30, 2005 compared with
$3,979,000 at September 30, 2004 and $4,033,000 at June 30, 2004. At quarter
end, the allowance for loan losses was $4,191,000, amounting to 1.76% of loans
held for investment compared to 1.68% and 1.67% at September 30, 2004 and June
30, 2004, respectively. The increase in the provision for loan losses took into
account, among other factors, this year's chargeoffs of $655,000 and the
creation of a specific reserve of $794,000 at June 30, 2005 on a credit that has
been identified as a potential loan problem.
