First Keystone Corporation Announces First Quarter Goodwill Impairment and Second Quarter Dividend

First Keystone Corporation (the “Corporation”) (OTC PINK: FKYS), parent company of First Keystone Community Bank, announces a non-cash goodwill impairment as of March 31, 2024 and declared a $0.28 per share quarterly cash dividend to shareholders of record as of June 13, 2024, payable June 28, 2024.

The Corporation is required to do periodic testing of goodwill impairment at certain times and if certain events occur or circumstances change which are considered to be triggering events that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of its goodwill below the carrying value of the reporting unit, First Keystone Community Bank. The Corporation performed a quantitative impairment test as of March 31, 2024, due primarily to the decrease in the Corporation’s stock price during the first quarter of 2024 as a triggering event, and based on the results of the test, the Board of Directors determined on May 29, 2024, that the Corporation will record a first quarter non-cash goodwill impairment charge of approximately $19,133,000. The goodwill is related to the acquisition of the Pocono Community Bank in November 2007 and of certain fixed and operating assets acquired and deposit liabilities assumed of the branch of another financial institution in Danville, Pennsylvania, in January 2004. The goodwill impairment has no impact on regulatory capital ratios, liquidity and the Corporation's cash balances.

The Corporation filed its Form 10-K on March 29, 2024, and intends to file the Q1 2024 Form 10-Q as promptly as possible.

Cash dividends amounted to $0.28 per share for the second quarter of 2024, the same amount paid in the second quarter of 2023.

Management considers subsequent events occurring after the balance sheet date for matters which may require adjustment to, or disclosure in, the consolidated financial statements. The review period for subsequent events extends up to and including the filing date of a public company’s consolidated financial statements when filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, the financial information in this announcement is subject to change.
