First Advantage Q4 dips

Fourth-quarter profits at First Advantage Bancorp in Clarksville came in at $438,000. That's down 17 percent from a year ago — full-year results were up 26 percent — but CEO Earl Bradley is upbeat about his team's prospects.

"We feel this initiative complements our existing business and helped us to attract and retain some significant talent, adding to our earning potential by expanding our market area and will help leverage our capital. Combined with continued strong asset quality and diligence in managing our balance sheet, this controlled growth will continue to create shareholder value for the long term."
