Edgemond and Clarke remain Directors and Mr. Clarke remains Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Jadlos agreed to expand his outside Director role in light of time availability following the sale of his own business, his increased ownership position, and interest in cultivating and shaping strategic opportunities that serve shareholder value.

The decrease in earnings is primarily due to a decrease in income generated from the mortgage banking segment as a result of a 42% decline in year over year origination volume. Net income from the banking segment totaled approximately $5.5 million, up 96% from the prior year.

For the calendar year 2010, SBA reported volume of $35 million for the company compared to $11 million for the second highest volume bank lender.
