BRITTON & KOONTZ CAPITAL REPORTS 2006 YEAR END RESULTS

Natchez, Mississippi - The Board of Directors of Britton & Koontz Capital Corporation (Nasdaq: BKBK, "B&K Capital" or "the Company") today reported net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2006, of $854 thousand, or $.40 per basic and diluted share, compared to $660 thousand, or $.31 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2005. Net income for 2006 was $3.6 million, or $1.69 per basic and diluted share, compared to $3.2 million, or $1.53 and $1.52 per basic and diluted share, respectively, for 2005. Annualized return on average assets and equity for the year ended December 31, 2006, increased to .95% and 11.10%, respectively, compared to .83% and 10.30% for 2005.

Net interest income decreased 3% during the fourth quarter of 2006, compared to the fourth quarter of 2005, while tax-equivalent net interest margin increased to 4.02% in the fourth quarter of 2006, as compared to 3.93% in the fourth quarter of 2005. Net interest income fell 0.5% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2006, to $13.5 million compared to the same period in 2005 with tax-equivalent net interest margin increasing from 3.89% to 4.01% year over year. Cash flows from both the investment portfolio and the residential mortgage portfolio were directed into new commercial loans in the amount of $19 million and the reduction of Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) borrowings by a similar amount. The flat to inverted yield curve experienced throughout 2006 afforded limited opportunity to reinvest cash flows from securities into additional securities. Cash flows that funded increases in commercial loans were mostly used in the Baton Rouge market. The commercial loan growth and the pay downs in the residential loan portfolio combined to keep the aggregate dollar amount of the entire loan portfolio relatively unchanged for the year with additional cash flows used to reduce wholesale borrowings. This strategy also had the effect of lowering the bank’s total assets while simultaneously improving net interest margins.

Non-interest income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2006, was $639 thousand and $2.5 million, respectively, compared to $581 thousand and $2.4 million for the same periods in 2005. The increase for the quarter ended December 31, 2006, is primarily related to higher service charges on deposit accounts and gains on sales of mortgage originations sold in the secondary market, offset by lower revenues from sales in the bank’s investment department.

Non-interest expense for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2006, was $2.6 and $10.7 million, respectively, compared to $3.1 and $11.6 million for the same periods in 2005. The fourth quarter reduction of $550 thousand was due primarily to lower personnel costs in 2006 and expenses related to the Company’s 2005 offer of a voluntary separation package to employees with certain years of service. The reduction in force resulted in an additional $425 thousand added to personnel expense in the fourth quarter of 2005.

Annualized net loan charge-offs as a per cent of average loans for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2006, were .83% and .30%, respectively, compared to .14% and .07%, respectively, during the same periods in 2005. The increase in the fourth quarter of 2006 in the net charge-off percentages was due primarily to one commercial credit. The Company added a $175 thousand provision for loan losses in the fourth quarter of 2006 to maintain the overall adequacy of the Allowance for Loan Losses, which ended 2005 and 2006 at .97% and .96% of loans. Non-performing loans as a percent of total loans were .59% in 2006 compared to .51% in 2005.
 
Since year end 2005, total assets decreased 5%, or $19.9 million, to $369.3 million reflecting the Company’s redirection of investment cash flows and residential pay-downs into higher yielding loans and reduction of FHLB borrowings. From December 31, 2005, to December 31, 2006, investment securities decreased 12%, or $14.4 million, to $107.4 million while loans held for investment, net of unearned interest and allowance for loan losses, decreased slightly by .6%, or $1.3 million, to $241 million. Demand deposits were $50.3 million as of December 31, 2006, compared to $51.5 million as of December 31, 2005.
