LETTER TO SHAREHOLDERS
Dear Shareholder: Whew!—we’re glad 2008 is over. It was certainly an interesting and tumultuous year to be bankers. Nevertheless, we are grateful that Town and Country Financial Corporation is a safe and strong banking organization and that we were still profitable in a year where so many economic factors were beyond our control. Many community banks like ours had nothing to do with the practices and excesses that caused some of our industry’s problems. Yet, we bore more than our fair share of the fallout. Misguided “mark-to-market” accounting rules and the federal government’s conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had a significant impact on banks like Town & Country even though we were never involved in subprime lending. With this as the backdrop, our recorded net income was $113 thousand in 2008. However, when excluding certain nonrecurring items such as mark-to-market and other accounting adjustments, our core net income was actually $936 thousand. This compares to the core net income of $951 thousand that we reported to you last year. The 5-year summary on the Net Interest Margin previous page illustrates our financial results on a pro-forma 3.25% basis so that you can see the year over year comparisons exclusive of certain non-recurring items. 3.00%
Despite the difficult economic environment, we were able to 2.75% move our company forward on several fronts during 2008. Most importantly, after some years of flat or declining revenue, 2.50% we were able to grow our net revenue in 2008 by $0.9 million, or 6.9%, over 2007 levels. We have improved our net interest 2.25% margin—which represents our primary revenue source—from 04 05 06 a low of 2.74% in 2006 to 2.88% in 2007 and 3.00% in 2008. We also increased our mortgage income from $687 thousand in 2007 to over $1 million in 2008. This 52% increase was driven by better pricing practices in addition to a 44% increase in volume – accomplished despite a difficult home purchase market. We are also happy to report that our balance sheet and capital position remain strong. Our consolidated risk-based capital ratio was 15.4% at the end of 2008 and each of our banks is designated as “well-capitalized” according to regulatory standards. We did not participate in any subprime lending programs nor do we hold subprime mortgage assets on our balance sheet. Our allowance for loan losses was 1.39% of total loans, excluding loans held for sale, at December 31, 2008 as compared to 1.34% at the prior year-end. Net charge-offs were 0.14% for 2008 as compared to 0.06% for 2007. Our asset quality metrics are generally better than national and local peer banks. Total assets at December 31, 2008 were $374.6 million compared to $367.2 million at the end of 2007. Total loans excluding held for sale decreased 4.9% to $220.1 million from $231.5 million as a result of weak loan demand. Total deposits increased 3% to $300.1 million, with non-time “core” deposits increasing over $15 million or 10.8%. Total stockholders’ equity ended the year at $28.6 million, down 13.1% mostly due to changes in unrealized gains and mark-to-market accounting. During 2008, we also accomplished several other initiatives: we opened a commercial loan production office in Decatur and originated nearly $9 million in new credit relationships; we completed a major remodel of our MacArthur Boulevard location in Springfield; we launched several new products and raised over $11 million in new core deposits through our High Yield Investment Account; we implemented a more effective retail sales process and significantly deepened existing retail relationships and products per household; we discontinued our third party insurance agency to reduce net overhead in the future; and we made additional investments and improvements to our operations department and compliance program. 4
LETTER TO SHAREHOLDERS
As you can see from our financial results, our non-interest expenses were higher in 2008 as a result of significant investments made in people and infrastructure to improve our Company’s long-term growth prospects. However, we tempered these investments during the second half when it became apparent that the economic environment might get worse before it gets better. Going forward, our goal is to produce revenue growth at twice the pace of expense growth in order to increase net profits to an acceptable level. We are not satisfied with the profitability of our Company, and we are working diligently to improve our long-term revenue while also controlling the growth in our expenses. The business atmosphere in 2009 will continue to be a challenge. We are forecasting significant increases in FDIC insurance assessments, as healthy institutions like Town & Country are asked to pay more into the deposit insurance fund. We are also guarded in our management of asset quality both in loans and certain types of investments that are more vulnerable in this economic environment.
We believe community banks like ours are now uniquely positioned to take advantage of new growth opportunities.
There is a silver lining in all of the bad news about the impacts to our industry and our Company from the economic and real estate crises: we believe community banks like ours are now uniquely positioned to take advantage of new growth opportunities. For instance, many of the crazy lending practices have collapsed and traditional bank lending products are gaining market share. There is virtually no market for subprime lending so a resurgence in FHA and VA lending products is taking place. We have added resources to take advantage of the new market realities for prudent mortgage lending. Also, larger regional and money center banks are becoming more difficult to deal with by imposing “one size fits all” rules. We are increasingly able to attract creditworthy businesses and consumers away from larger institutions simply by providing competitive products delivered with good service by capable banking professionals.
We want to thank you—our valued shareholders—for your continued confidence and investment in our Company. We also want to thank our customers for their confidence in our products and services and the high-touch way in which we deliver them. We encourage you to tell your friends the Town & Country story—that they too can feel confident banking with professionals who live in their neighborhoods and who keep their best interests at the forefront. We would especially like to thank our employees for their hard work and dedication. Significant efforts have been made to improve our Company and we are very optimistic about our long-term growth Thank you for your support, prospects based on the team of professionals assembled at Town and Country Financial Corporation. We are glad to be a community bank.

Town and Country Financial Corporation Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements December 31, 2008 and 2007 Note 1: Nature of Operations and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Securities (continued)
Nature of Operations Town and Country Financial Corporation (“Company”) is a multi-bank holding company which through its subsidiaries provides a full range of banking and financial services to individual and corporate customers in Central Illinois. The Company is subject to competition from other financial institutions. The Company and its bank subsidiaries are subject to the regulation of certain federal and state agencies and undergoes periodic examinations by those regulatory authorities.
Held-to-maturity securities, which include any security for which the Company has the positive intent and ability to hold until maturity, are carried at historical cost adjusted for amortization of premiums and accretion of discounts. Amortization of premiums and accretion of discounts are recorded as interest income from securities. Realized gains and losses are recorded as net security gains (losses). Gains and losses on sales of securities are determined on the specific-identification method.
Principles of Consolidation The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Town & Country Bank of Springfield and its wholly-owned subsidiary Town & Country Banc Mortgage Services, Inc., Logan County Bank, Town & Country Bank, Haley, LLC, and Town & Country Insurance Services, LLC. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Loans Held for Sale Mortgage loans originated and intended for sale in the secondary market are carried at the lower of cost or fair value in the aggregate. Net unrealized losses, if any, are recognized through a valuation allowance by charges to income. Loans
Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Loans that management has the intent and ability to hold for the foreseeable future or until maturity or payoff are reported at their outstanding principal balances adjusted for any charge-offs, the allowance for loan losses, any deferred fees or costs on originated loans and unamortized premiums or discounts on purchased loans. Interest income is reported on the interest method and includes amortization of net deferred loan fees and costs over the loan term. Generally, loans are placed on non-accrual status at ninety days past due and interest is considered a loss, unless the loan is well-secured and in the process of collection.
Material estimates that are particularly susceptible to significant change relate to the determination of the allowance for loan losses, other-than-temporary impairment of investments, valuation of mortgage servicing rights, and Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) stock impairment. In connection with the determination of the allowance for loan losses, management obtains independent appraisals for significant properties. In connection with the determination of other-than-temporary impairment of investments, management obtains financial information of the issuer and performs an analysis, as assisted by an independent consultant, of the abilities of the issuer to meet the obligations. In connection with mortgage servicing rights, management obtains an independent appraisal of the fair value of the servicing rights. In connection with the determination of FHLB stock impairment, management performs an analysis based on the FHLB’s current activities.
Allowance for Loan Losses The allowance for loan losses is established as losses are estimated to have occurred through a provision for loan losses charged to income. Loan losses are charged against the allowance when management believes the uncollectibility of a loan balance is confirmed. Subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance. The allowance for loan losses is evaluated on a regular basis by management and is based upon management’s periodic review of the collectibility of the loans in light of historical experience, the nature and volume of the loan portfolio, adverse situations that may affect the borrower’s ability to repay, estimated value of any underlying collateral and prevailing economic conditions. This evaluation is inherently subjective as it requires estimates that are susceptible to significant revision as more information becomes available.
Cash Equivalents The Company considers all liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents. At December 31, 2008 and 2007, cash equivalents consisted primarily of noninterest bearing deposits, interest bearing deposits and federal funds sold.
A loan is considered impaired when, based on current information and events, it is probable that the Company will be unable to collect the scheduled payments of principal or interest when due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement. Factors considered by management in determining impairment include payment status, collateral value and the probability of collecting scheduled principal and interest payments when due. Loans that experience insignificant payment delays and payment shortfalls generally are not classified as impaired. Management determines the significance of payment delays and payment shortfalls on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration all of the circumstances surrounding the loan and the borrower, including the length of the delay, the reasons for the delay, the borrower’s prior payment record and the amount of the shortfall in relation to the principal and interest owed. Impairment is measured on a loan-by-loan basis for commercial and construction loans by either the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the loan’s effective interest rate, the loan’s obtainable market price or the fair value of the collateral if the loan is collateral dependent.
The financial institutions holding the Company’s cash accounts are participating in the FDIC’s Transaction Account Guarantee Program. Under that program, through December 31, 2009, all noninterest-bearing transaction accounts are fully guaranteed by the FDIC for the entire amount in the account. Effective October 3, 2008, the FDIC’s insurance limits increased to $250,000. The increase in federally insured limits is currently set to expire December 31, 2009. At December 31, 2008, the Company’s interest-bearing cash accounts exceeded federally insured limits by approximately $338,590. Securities Available-for-sale securities, which include any security for which the Company has no immediate plan to sell but which may be sold in the future, are carried at fair value. Unrealized gains and losses are recorded, net of related income tax effects, in other comprehensive income. 16
Town and Country Financial Corporation Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements December 31, 2008 and 2007 Note 1: Nature of Operations and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued) Treasury Stock
Allowance for Loan Losses (continued)
Treasury stock is stated at cost. Cost is determined by the first-in, first-out method.
Groups of loans with similar risk characteristics, including individually evaluated loans not determined to be impaired, are collectively evaluated for impairment based on the groupâ€™s historical loss experience adjusted for changes in trends, conditions and other relevant factors that affect repayment of the loans.
Trust Assets and Fees
Premises and Equipment
Assets held in fiduciary or agency capacities are not included in the consolidated balance sheet, since such items are not assets of the Company.
Depreciable assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is charged to expense using the straight-line and accelerated depreciation methods over the estimated useful lives of the assets.
Fees from trust activities are recorded on the cash basis, for the period in which the service is provided. Fees are a function of the market value of assets managed and administered, the volume of transactions and fees for other services rendered, as set forth in the underlying trust agreements.
Federal Reserve and Federal Home Loan Bank Stock
Federal Reserve and Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) stock are required investments for institutions that are members of the Federal Reserve and FHLB systems. The required investment in the common stock is based on a predetermined formula, carried at cost and evaluated for impairment.
Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the tax effects of differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities. A valuation allowance is established to reduce deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that a deferred tax asset will not be realized. The Company files consolidated income tax returns with its subsidiaries.
The Company owns $1,828,406 of Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) stock as of December 31, 2008. During the third quarter of 2007, the FHLB of Chicago received a Cease and Desist Order from their regulator, the Federal Housing Finance Board. The order prohibits capital stock repurchases and redemptions until a time to be determined by the Federal Housing Finance Board. The FHLB will continue to provide liquidity and funding through advances and purchase loans through the MPF program. With regard to dividends, the FHLB will continue to assess their dividend capacity each quarter and make appropriate request for approval. The FHLB did not pay a dividend during 2008, and the stock is considered a non-earning asset as of December 31, 2008 and 2007. Management performed an analysis and deemed the investment in FHLB stock was not other than temporarily impaired.
In accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Staff Position No. FIN 48-3, the Company has elected to defer the effective date of FASB Interpretation No. 48 (FIN 48), Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes, until its fiscal year ending December 31, 2009. The Company has continued to account for any uncertain tax positions in accordance with literature that was authoritative immediately prior to the effective date of FIN 48, such as FASB Statement No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes, and FASB Statement No. 5, Accounting for Contingencies.
Foreclosed Assets Held for Sale
Earnings Per Share
Assets acquired through, or in lieu of, loan foreclosure are held for sale and are initially recorded at fair value less cost to sell at the date of foreclosure, establishing a new cost basis. Subsequent to foreclosure, valuations are periodically performed by management and the assets are carried at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell. Revenue and expenses from operations and changes in the valuation allowance are included in net income or expense from foreclosed assets.
Earnings per share have been computed based upon the weighted-average common shares outstanding during each year. Reclassifications Certain reclassifications have been made to the 2007 financial statements to conform to the 2008 financial statement presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on net income.
Intangible Assets Intangible assets are being amortized on the straight-line basis over a period of 15 years. Such assets are periodically evaluated as to the recoverability of their carrying value.
Note 2: Restriction on Cash and Due From Banks The Company is required to maintain reserve funds in cash and/or on deposit with the Federal Reserve Bank and MoneyGram. The reserve required at December 31, 2008 and 2007, was $480,566 and $3,234,000, respectively.
Mortgage Servicing Rights Mortgage servicing rights on originated loans that have been sold are initially recorded at fair value. Capitalized servicing rights are amortized in proportion to and over the period of estimated servicing revenues. Impairment of mortgage-servicing rights is assessed based on the fair value of those rights. Fair values are estimated using discounted cash flows based on a current market interest rate. For purposes of measuring impairment, the rights are stratified based on the predominant risk characteristics of the underlying loans. The predominant characteristic currently used for stratification is type of loan. The amount of impairment recognized is the amount by which the capitalized mortgage servicing rights for a stratum exceed their fair value.

Town and Country Financial Corporation Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements December 31, 2008 and 2007 Note 3: Securities (continued) Certain investments in debt and marketable equity securities are reported in the financial statements at an amount less than their historical cost. Total fair value of these investments at December 31, 2008 and 2007, was $12,196,205 and $30,148,719, which is approximately 11% and 32%, respectively, of the Company’s available-for-sale and held-to-maturity investment portfolio. These declines primarily resulted from recent changes in market interest rates and failure of certain investments to maintain consistent credit quality ratings. Based on evaluation of available evidence, including recent changes in market interest rates, credit rating information and information obtained from regulatory filings, management believes the declines in fair value for these securities are temporary. Should the impairment of any of these securities become other-than-temporary, the cost basis of the investment will be reduced and the resulting loss recognized in net income in the period the other-than-temporary impairment is identified. Other-than-temporary impairment was recorded during 2008 and 2007 and totaled $1,874,691 and $50,000, respectively as previously described. The following table shows the Company’s investments’ gross unrealized losses and fair value, aggregated by investment category and length of time that individual securities have been in a continuous unrealized loss position at December 31, 2008 and 2007: December 31, 2008 12 Months or More Unrealized Fair Value Losses

Note 13: Regulatory Matters
The tax effects of temporary differences related to deferred taxes shown on the consolidated balance sheets were:
The Company and Banks are subject to various regulatory capital requirements administered by the federal banking agencies. Failure to meet minimum capital requirements can initiate certain mandatory and possibly additional discretionary actions by regulators that, if undertaken, could have a direct material effect on the Company’s financial statements. Under capital adequacy guidelines and the regulatory framework for prompt corrective action, the Company and Banks must meet specific capital guidelines that involve quantitative measures of assets, liabilities and certain off-balance-sheet items as calculated under regulatory accounting practices. The capital amounts and classification are also subject to qualitative judgments by the regulators about components, risk weightings and other factors.

Quantitative measures established by regulation to ensure capital adequacy require the Company and Banks to maintain minimum amounts and ratios (set forth in the table below). As of December 31, 2008 and 2007, the Company and Banks meet all capital adequacy requirements to which they are subject. As of December 31, 2008, the most recent notification from the Company’s and Banks’ regulators categorized the Banks as well capitalized under the regulatory framework for prompt corrective action. To be categorized as well capitalized, the Banks must maintain minimum total risk-based, Tier I risk-based and Tier I leverage ratios as set forth in the table. There are no conditions or events since that notification that management believes have changed the Company’s or Banks’ category.

Note 14: Related Party Transactions At December 31, 2008 and 2007, the Company had loans outstanding to executive officers, directors, significant stockholders and their affiliates (related parties), in the amount of $3,182,577 and $2,908,000, respectively. In management’s opinion, such loans and other extensions of credit and deposits were made in the ordinary course of business and were made on substantially the same terms (including interest rates and collateral) as those prevailing at the time for comparable transactions with other persons. Further, in management’s opinion, these loans did not involve more than normal risk of collectibility or present other unfavorable features.
Town and Country Financial Corporation Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements December 31, 2008 and 2007 Note 15: Employee Benefits
Note 17: Disclosures About Fair Value of Assets and Liabilities
The Company has an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) to provide retirement benefits for substantially all employees. All full time employees who meet certain age and length of service requirements are eligible to participate in the ESOP. Dividends on allocated shares of common stock are allocated directly to the participant’s account. All shares held by the ESOP have been allocated to the Plan participants and are included in the computation of weighted average common shares outstanding.
Effective January 1, 2008, the Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 157, Fair Value Measurements (FAS 157). FAS 157 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. FAS 157 has been applied prospectively as of the beginning of the year. FAS 157 defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. FAS 157 also establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The standard describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:
The Plan owned 95,605 and 89,855 shares of the Company’s common stock as of December 31, 2008 and 2007, respectively. The fair market value of those shares totaled $717,038 and $1,257,970 as of December 31, 2008 and 2007, respectively. In the event a terminated Plan participant desires to sell his or her shares of the Company’s stock, the Company would be required to purchase the shares from the participant at their fair market value as determined by an independent appraiser.

The Bank’s expense for the Plan was approximately $5,000 for each of the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007. The Company makes contributions to a savings investment plan established for the benefit of substantially all of the Company’s employees. A portion of the Company’s contribution is based upon the employees’ contributions and another portion of the Company’s contribution is at the discretion of the Board of Directors. Contributions by the Company to the plan were $155,549 and $142,458 for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, respectively.
Level 3 Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities Following is a description of the valuation methodologies used for assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis and recognized in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets, as well as the general classification of such assets and liabilities pursuant to the valuation hierarchy.
Also, the Company has a non-qualified executive incentive retirement plan (Plan) that covers select members of management. Contributions to the Plan are based upon the Company meeting certain financial performance measures and are deferred until the employee reaches the normal retirement age of 65. Retirement benefits are paid out of the general assets of the Company. The retirement benefit is paid out in monthly installments for a 13 year period and equals the deferral account balance. The liability recorded was $329,633 and $394,683 at December 31, 2008 and 2007, respectively. The Company’s expense for the plan was $7,610 and $14,034 for 2008 and 2007, respectively.
Available-for-sale Securities Where quoted market prices are available in an active market, securities are classified within Level 1 of the valuation hierarchy. Level 1 securities include SLMA stock, FNMA and FHLMC preferred stock and corporate stock. If quoted market prices are not available, then fair values are estimated by using pricing models, quoted prices of securities with similar characteristics or discounted cash flows. Level 2 securities include U.S. government agencies, mortgage-backed securities and municipal securities. In certain cases where Level 1 or Level 2 inputs are not available, securities are classified within Level 3 of the hierarchy and include investments in pooled trust preferred securities (PreTSLs).
Note 16: Leases The Company has several noncancellable operating leases, primarily for branch offices, that expire through 2015. These leases generally contain renewal options for periods ranging from 2 to 5 years and require the Company to pay all executory costs such as taxes, maintenance and insurance. Rental expense for these leases was $92,127 and $83,895 for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, respectively.

The carrying amount approximates fair value. Securities Fair values equal quoted market prices, if available. If quoted market prices are not available, fair value is estimated based on quoted market prices of similar securities.
Following is a description of the valuation methodologies used for assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis and recognized in the accompanying balance sheets, as well as the general classification of such assets and liabilities pursuant to the valuation hierarchy.
Loans Held for Sale
For homogeneous categories of loans, such as mortgage loans held for sale, fair value is estimated using the quoted market prices for securities backed by similar loans, adjusted for differences in loan characteristics.
Loans for which it is probable that the Company will not collect all principal and interest due according to contractual terms are measured for impairment in accordance with the provisions of Financial Accounting Standard No. 114 (FAS 114), Accounting by Creditors for Impairment of a Loan. Allowable methods for estimating fair value include using the fair value of the collateral for collateral dependent loans or, where a loan is determined not to be collateral dependent, using the discounted cash flow method.
Loans The fair value of loans is estimated by discounting the future cash flows using the current rates at which similar loans would be made to borrowers with similar credit ratings and for the same remaining maturities. Loans with similar characteristics were aggregated for purposes of the calculations. The carrying amount of accrued interest approximates its fair value.
If the impaired loan is identified as collateral dependent, then the fair value method of measuring the amount of impairment is utilized. This method requires obtaining a current independent appraisal of the collateral and applying a discount factor to the value.
If the impaired loan is determined not to be collateral dependent, then the discounted cash flow method is used. This method requires the impaired loan to be recorded at the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the loan’s effective interest rate. The effective interest rate of a loan is the contractual interest rate adjusted for any net deferred loan fees or costs, premiums or discount existing at origination or acquisition of the loan.
Deposits include demand deposits, savings accounts, NOW accounts and certain money market deposits. The carrying amount approximates fair value. The fair value of fixed-maturity time deposits is estimated using a discounted cash flow calculation that applies the rates currently offered for deposits of similar remaining maturities.
Impaired loans are classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. 25
Town and Country Financial Corporation Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements December 31, 2008 and 2007 Note 17: Disclosures About Fair Value of Assets and Liabilities (continued) Long-term Debt Rates currently available to the Company for debt with similar terms and remaining maturities are used to estimate the fair value of existing debt. Commitments to Originate Loans, Letters of Credit and Lines of Credit The fair value of commitments to originate loans is estimated using the fees currently charged to enter into similar agreements, taking into account the remaining terms of the agreements and the present creditworthiness of the counterparties. For fixed-rate loan commitments, fair value also considers the difference between current levels of interest rates and the committed rates. The fair values of letters of credit and lines of credit are based on fees currently charged for similar agreements or on the estimated cost to terminate or otherwise settle the obligations with the counterparties at the reporting date.

Note 18: Significant Estimates and Concentrations Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America require disclosure of certain significant estimates and current vulnerabilities due to certain concentrations. Estimates related to the allowance for loan losses are reflected in the footnote regarding loans. Current vulnerabilities due to certain concentrations of credit risk are discussed in the footnote on commitments and credit risk. Estimates related to other-than-temporary impairment of securities, FHLB stock impairment and valuation of mortgage servicing rights are described in Note 1. Other significant estimates and concentrations not discussed in those footnotes include: Current Economic Conditions The current economic environment presents financial institutions with unprecedented circumstances and challenges which in some cases have resulted in large declines in the fair values of investments and other assets, constraints on liquidity and significant credit quality problems, including severe volatility in the valuation of real estate and other collateral supporting loans. The financial statements have been prepared using values and information currently available to the Company. Given the volatility of current economic conditions, the value of assets and liabilities recorded in the financial statements could change rapidly, resulting in material future adjustments in asset values, the allowance for loan losses, capital that could negatively impact the Companyâ€™s ability to meet regulatory capital requirements and maintain sufficient liquidity.
Town and Country Financial Corporation Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements December 31, 2008 and 2007 Note 19: Commitments and Credit Risk
Lines of Credit
The Company grants commercial, mortgage and consumer loans and receives deposits from customers primarily located within Central Illinois. The Company’s loans are generally secured by specific items of collateral including real property, consumer assets and business assets. Although the Company has a diversified loan portfolio, a substantial portion of its debtors ability to honor their contracts is dependent upon the economic conditions within Central Illinois.
Lines of credit are agreements to lend to a customer as long as there is no violation of any condition established in the contract. Lines of credit generally have fixed expiration dates. Since a portion of the line may expire without being drawn upon, the total unused lines do not necessarily represent future cash requirements. Each customer’s creditworthiness is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The amount of collateral obtained, if deemed necessary, is based on management’s credit evaluation of the counterparty. Collateral held varies but may include accounts receivable, inventory, property, plant and equipment, commercial real estate and residential real estate. Management uses the same credit policies in granting lines of credit as it does for on-balance-sheet instruments.
Commitments to Originate Loans Commitments to originate loans are agreements to lend to a customer as long as there is no violation of any condition established in the contract. Commitments generally have fixed expiration dates or other termination clauses and may require payment of a fee. Since a portion of the commitments may expire without being drawn upon, the total commitment amounts do not necessarily represent future cash requirements. Each customer’s creditworthiness is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The amount of collateral obtained, if deemed necessary, is based on management’s credit evaluation of the counterparty. Collateral held varies, but may include accounts receivable, inventory, property, plant and equipment, commercial real estate and residential real estate.
At December 31, 2008, the Company had granted unused lines of credit to borrowers aggregating approximately $28,831,646 and $18,011,760 for commercial lines and open-end consumer lines, respectively. At December 31, 2007, unused lines of credit to borrowers aggregated approximately $23,677,340 for commercial lines and $17,017,667 for open-end consumer lines.
Note 20: FDIC Assessment On February 27, 2009, the FDIC announced it had adopted an interim rule to impose a 20 basis point emergency special assessment on June 30, 2009 which will be collected on September 30, 2009. The interim rule also provides that an additional emergency assessment of up to 10 basis points may be imposed if the reserve ratio of the Deposit Insurance Fund is estimated to fall to a level that the Board believes would adversely affect public confidence or to a level which shall be close to zero or negative at the end of a calendar quarter. The 20 basis point assessment is based on the institution’s assessment base which is total deposits. If the June 30, 2009 assessment base is consistent with December 31, 2008, the assessment would approximate $600,000.
At December 31, 2008 and 2007, the Company had outstanding commitments to originate loans aggregating approximately $764,000 and $788,000, respectively. The commitments extended over varying periods of time with the majority being disbursed within a one-year period. Loan commitments at fixed rates of interest amounted to $414,000 and $417,000 at December 31, 2008 and 2007, respectively, with the remainder at floating market rates. Standby Letters of Credit Standby letters of credit are irrevocable conditional commitments issued by the Company to guarantee the performance of a customer to a third party. Financial standby letters of credit are primarily issued to support public and private borrowing arrangements, including commercial paper, bond financing and similar transactions. Performance standby letters of credit are issued to guarantee performance of certain customers under non-financial contractual obligations. The credit risk involved in issuing standby letters of credit is essentially the same as that involved in extending loans to customers. Should the Company be obligated to perform under the standby letters of credit, the Company may seek recourse from the customer for reimbursement of amounts paid. The Company had total outstanding standby letters of credit amounting to $1,223,929 and $1,969,785, at December 31, 2008 and 2007, respectively, with terms ranging from 1 day to 25 months. At December 31, 2008 and 2007, the Company’s deferred revenue under standby letter of credit agreements was nominal.
