                               Carrollton Bancorp Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End Results

COLUMBIA, Md., Feb. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carrollton Bancorp, (Nasdaq:CRRB) the parent company of Carrollton Bank,
announced a net loss of $109,318 and $104,666 for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2012, compared to net income of
$568,551 and $546,728 for the comparable quarter and twelve month period in 2011. Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three
month period ended December 31, 2012 was $246,397 ($0.10 per diluted share) compared to net income available to common stockholders of
$431,471 ($0.17 per diluted share) during the comparable period in 2011. Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $652,982 ($0.25
loss per diluted share) and $1,587 ($0.00 loss per diluted share) for the twelve month periods ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

The $677,869 decline in operating results for the quarter, as compared to the same period in 2011, is a result of a combination of factors
including a $352,968 decrease in net interest income resulting from lower margins and lower average asset levels and a $884,836 increase in
noninterest expenses resulting primarily from legal, investment banking and consulting fees associated with the planned merger with Jefferson
Bancorp, Inc. In addition, the Company's OREO expense was $2.2 million, partially reducing OREO balances at year end to $2.030 million
from $4.822 million as of December 31, 2011. These negative factors were partially offset by a $540,528 increase in noninterest income
resulting from strong growth in mortgage banking fees and electronic banking fees as well as a decline in securities write downs. Similar
factors impacted year to date results where improvements in noninterest income and the provision for loan losses were offset by lower net
interest income and higher OREO expenses and merger related expenses.

Nonperforming assets (nonaccrual loans and foreclosed real estate) decreased by 31.39% from $8.8 million at December 31, 2011 to $6.0
million at December 31, 2012. The allowance for loan losses represented 1.95% of outstanding loans at December 31, 2012 compared to 1.81%
at December 31, 2011. The Company experienced net charge-offs of $157,126 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 as compared to $5,979
for the same period in 2011.

The Company's strategy of aggressively managing the size and composition of the balance sheet continued to result in improved capital ratios.
We believe that the planned merger with Jefferson Bancorp will, upon completion, create a larger and better capitalized bank which will
enhance opportunities to grow organically and through additional acquisitions.

President and Chief Executive Officer Bob Altieri stated "Merger related expenses as well as OREO write downs adversely affected our
profitability in 2012. That being said, the trends are positive. We do see improvement in asset quality and expect OREO related expenses to
reflect that in 2013. On the merger side, the regulatory approval process has been much slower than anticipated, but, we expect to finalize the
merger within the first quarter of 2013."

Total assets at December 31, 2012 compared to December 31, 2011 reflects a $55 thousand increase to $365.4 million. Gross loans, including
loans held for sale, increased 3.2%, or $9.6 million, from $298.4 million at December 31, 2011 to $307.9 million at December 31, 2012.
Investment securities decreased 32.1%, or $9.8 million, to $20.7 million at December 31, 2012 from $30.5 million as of December 31, 2011.
This decrease is a result of management's decision to use cash flow from investments to shrink the balance sheet by reducing high cost
borrowings.

Total deposits at December 31, 2012 increased 3.22%, or $10.2 million, to $325.1 million while borrowings decreased $9.3 million from
balances at December 31, 2011. The increase in deposits was comprised of a $20 million increase in non-interest bearing deposits, a $10.8
million increase in interest bearing transaction accounts and a $20.8 million decrease in certificates of deposit. The decrease in high cost
funding sources is consistent with our strategy of reducing our cost of funds while concentrating on core deposit growth.

Mr. Altieri continued and stated, "Our employees continue to do an excellent job in executing our strategic initiative to increase non-interest
bearing accounts. As of December 31, 2012, the company's non-interest bearing accounts total approximately $95 million, which is a 26%
increase over December 31, 2011 and is a historic high for the Bank."
