REPORTS RESULTS FOR SECOND QUARTER OF 2019
BILOXI, MS (July 24, 2019)—Peoples Financial Corporation (OTCQX Best Market: PFBX), parent of The Peoples Bank, announced results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2019.
The company reported a net loss of $328,000 for the second quarter of 2019 compared to net income of $63,000 for the second quarter of 2018. The company reported net income of $77,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to net income of $355,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018.
Favorably impacting first quarter of 2019 results was the payoff of a $1.5 million nonaccrual loan which resulted in the recovery of $135,000 of interest income. Results for the second quarter of 2019 included non-recurring expenses relating to the settlement of a lawsuit as well as increased write-downs in the fair value of other real estate.

Swetman, chairman and chief executive officer of the holding company and the bank. He added, “Unfortunately, the non-recurring expenses materially impacted our overall results.”
The company’s capital position continues to be excellent with the primary capital ratio increasing to 15.66% at June 30, 2019, compared to 14.05% at June 30, 2018. The company’s book value per share was $18.79 and $17.09 as of June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.
