FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Cornerstone Bancshares, Inc. (“Cornerstone”) may from time to time make written or oral statements, including statements contained in this report which constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). Forward-looking statements are those not based on historical information, but rather related to future operations, strategies, financial results or other developments.  Generally, the words “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “consider,” “plan,” “believe,” “seek,” “should,” “estimate,” and similar expressions may be used to identify such forward-looking statements, but other statements may constitute forward-looking statements. These statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties. Such forward-looking statements are made based upon management’s belief as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, management and speak only as of the date made.  Cornerstone’s actual results may differ materially from the results anticipated in forward-looking statements due to a variety of factors. Such factors include, without limitation, those specifically described in Item 1A of Part II of this report and in Cornerstone’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008, as well as the following:  (i) unanticipated deterioration in the financial condition of borrowers resulting in significant increases in loan losses and provisions for those losses, (ii) increased competition with other financial institutions, (iii) lack of sustained growth in the economy in the Chattanooga, Tennessee area, (iv) rapid fluctuations or unanticipated changes in interest rates, (v) the inability of our bank subsidiary, Cornerstone Community Bank, to satisfy regulatory requirements for its expansion plans, (vi) the inability of Cornerstone to achieve its targeted expansion goals in the Dalton, Georgia  market, (vii) the inability of Cornerstone to grow its loan portfolio at historic or planned rates and (viii) changes in the legislative and regulatory environment, including compliance with the various provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Many of such factors are beyond Cornerstone’s ability to control or predict, and readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Cornerstone does not intend to update or reissue any forward-looking statements contained in this report as a result of new information or other circumstances that may become known to Cornerstone.

CORNERSTONE BANCSHARES, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

Note 1. Presentation of Financial Information

Nature of Business-Cornerstone Bancshares, Inc. (“Cornerstone”) is a bank holding company whose primary business is performed by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Cornerstone Community Bank (“Bank”).  The Bank provides a full range of banking services to the Chattanooga, Tennessee market.  The Bank has also established a loan production office (“LPO”) in Dalton, Georgia to further enhance the Bank’s lending markets.  The Bank specializes in asset based lending, commercial lending and payment processing.   The Bank has a wholly-owned subsidiary, Eagle Financial, Inc. (“Eagle”), which specializes in finance and accounts receivable factoring.

      Interim Financial Information (Unaudited)-The financial information in this report for September 30, 2009 and September 30, 2008 has not been audited. The information included herein should be read in conjunction with the annual consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the 2008 Annual Report to Shareholders which was furnished to each shareholder of Cornerstone in March of 2009. The consolidated financial statements presented herein conform to generally accepted accounting principles and to general industry practices.  In the opinion of Cornerstone’s management, the accompanying interim financial statements contain all material adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the financial condition, the results of operations, and cash flows for the interim period. Results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for a full year.

      Use of Estimates-The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities as of the balance sheet date and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Material estimates that are particularly susceptible to significant change in the near term include the determination of the allowance for loan losses.

      Consolidation-The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Cornerstone and its wholly-owned subsidiary Bank.  Substantially all intercompany transactions, profits and balances have been eliminated.

       Reclassification-Certain amounts in the prior consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.  The reclassifications had no effect on net income or stockholder’s equity as previously reported.

    Accounting Policies-During interim periods, Cornerstone follows the accounting policies set forth in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Since December 31, 2008, there have been no significant changes in any accounting principles or practices, or in the method of applying any such principles or practices other than those indicated below.

In April 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued FSP No. FAS 157-4, Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for the Asset or Liability have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly (“FSP 157-4”) (ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures). FSP 157-4 provides that if an entity determines that either the volume and/or level of activity for an asset or liability has significantly decreased (from normal conditions for that asset or liability) or price quotations or observable inputs are not associated with orderly transactions, increased analysis and management judgment will be required to estimate fair value. FSP 157-4 is effective for interim and annual periods ending after June 15, 2009, with early adoption permitted. FSP 157-4 must be applied prospectively. The provisions of FSP 157-4 became effective for Cornerstone's fiscal quarter ending on June 30, 2009, and its adoption did not have a significant impact on the consolidated financial statements.

In April 2009, the FASB issued FSP No. 107-1 and APB 28-1, Interim Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments (“FSP 107-1 and APB 28-1”) (ASC 825, Financial Instruments).   FSP 107-1 and APB 28-1 amends SFAS 107 to require disclosures about fair value of financial instruments for interim reporting periods of publicly traded companies as well as in annual financial statements. This FSP also amends APB 28, Interim Financial Reporting, to require those disclosures in summarized financial information at interim reporting periods. The provisions of FSP 107-1 and APB 28-1 became effective for the Bank's interim period ending on June 30, 2009 and resulted in the applicable fair value disclosures being included in the June 30, 2009 and September 30, 2009 periods.

In April 2009, the FASB issued FSP No. FAS 115-2 and FAS 124-2, Recognition and Presentation of Other-Than-Temporary Impairments (“FSP 115-2 and 124-2”) (ASC 320, Investment – Debt and Equity Securities). FSP 115-2 and 124-2 clarifies the interaction of the factors that should be considered when determining whether a debt security is other-than-temporarily impaired. For debt securities, management must assess whether (a) it has the intent to sell the security and (b) it is more likely than not that it will be required to sell the security prior to its anticipated recovery. These steps are done before assessing whether the entity will recover the cost basis of the investment. This change does not affect the need to forecast recovery of the value of the security through either cash flows or market price. In instances when a determination is made that an other-than-temporary impairment exists but the investor does not intend to sell the debt security and it is not more likely than not that it will be required to sell the debt security prior to its anticipated recovery, FSP 115-2 and 124-2 changes the presentation and amount of the other-than-temporary impairment recognized in the income statement. The other-than-temporary impairment is separated into (a) the amount of the total other-than-temporary impairment related to a decrease in cash flows expected to be collected from the debt security (the credit loss) and (b) the amount of the total other-than-temporary impairment related to all other factors. The amount of the total other-than-temporary impairment related to the credit loss is recognized in earnings. The amount of the total other-than-temporary impairment related to all other factors is recognized in other comprehensive income. FSP 115-2 and 124-2 also requires substantial additional disclosures. The provisions of FSP 115-2 and 124-2 became effective for Cornerstone’s fiscal quarter ended period ending on June 30, 2009, and there was no impact from the adoption on Cornerstone’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.  The expanded disclosures related to FSP 115-2 and 124-2 are included in Note 4.

 On May 28, 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 165, Subsequent Events (ASC 855, Subsequent Events).  Under SFAS 165, companies are required to evaluate events and transactions that occur after the balance sheet date but before the date the financial statements are issued, or available to be issued in the case of non-public entities.  SFAS 165 requires entities to recognize in the financial statements the effect of all events or transactions that provide additional evidence of conditions that existed at the balance sheet date, including the estimates inherent in the financial preparation process.  Entities shall not recognize the impact of events or transactions that provide evidence about conditions that did not exist at the balance sheet date but arose after that date.  SFAS 165 also requires entities to disclose the date through which subsequent events have been evaluated.  SFAS 165 was effective for interim and annual reporting periods ending after June 15, 2009.  Cornerstone adopted the provisions of SFAS 165 for the quarter ended June 30, 2009, as required, and adoption did not have a material impact on the financial statements taken as a whole.  Management has evaluated subsequent events through November 13, 2009, the date these statements were available for release.
 
On June 30, 2009 the FASB issued SFAS No. 168, The FASB Accounting Standards Codification and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles — a Replacement of FASB Statement No. 162 (the “FASB Codification”). The purpose of the FASB Codification was to reorganize all existing U.S. accounting and reporting standards issued by the FASB and other related private-sector standard setters into one authoritative body of literature, which will ease research of accounting literature and reduce the risk of noncompliance. Going forward, all revisions will be made in real time to the FASB Codification. The FASB Codification is effective for all financial statements issued for interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009. As a result of the adoption of the FASB Codification, all references in public company financial statements and related notes will be to the classification system set forth in the FASB Codification, rather than to the applicable previously existing literature. Conforming changes will also need to be made throughout a company’s disclosure documents, with changes most likely arising in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and, most particularly, in the discussion of critical accounting policies usually contained in that discussion.
 
On August 18, 2009 the Securities and Exchange Commission published interpretive guidance titled Commission Guidance Regarding the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Accounting Standards Codification. In its guidance, the SEC stated that concurrent with the Effective Date, references in the SEC’s rules and SEC staff guidance to specific standards under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles should be understood to mean the corresponding reference in the FASB Codification. The SEC also stated that the FASB Codification does not supersede any SEC rules or regulations, is not the authoritative source for SEC rules or SEC staff guidance, and the inclusion of any SEC rules or SEC staff guidance in the FASB Codification will not affect how such items may be updated in the future by the SEC.

In August 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2009-05 (ASU 2009-05), Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (ASC 820, Measuring Liabilities at Fair Value).  ASU 2009-05 amends subtopic 820-10, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures – Overall, and provides clarification for the fair value measurement of liabilities.  ASU 2009-05 is effective for the first reporting period including interim period beginning after issuance.  Cornerstone  does not expect the adoption of ASU 2009-05 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

     Earnings per Common Share- Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing income available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period (denominator). Diluted EPS is computed by dividing income available to common shareholders (numerator) by the adjusted weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator). The adjusted weighted average number of shares outstanding reflects the potential dilution occurring if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock resulting in the issuance of common stock that share in the earnings of the entity.

 
The following is a summary of the basic and diluted earnings per share for the three month periods ended September 30, 2009 and 2008.

As of September 30, 2009, Cornerstone had paid a stock dividend totaling 0.8421 percent per share with a record date of June 12, 2009 and a payment date of July 3, 2009.  The average number of common shares outstanding and the effect of dilutive stock options for 2008 have been retroactively adjusted to reflect these transactions.

Note 2. Stock Based Compensation

   Accounting Policies- Cornerstone, as required by the FASB, applies the fair value recognition provisions of ASC 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation.  As a result, for the nine month period ended September 30, 2009, the compensation cost charged to earnings related to the vested incentive stock options was approximately $164,000, which reduced basic earnings per share by $0.03 per share.

   Officer and Employee Plans-Cornerstone has two stock option plans under which officers and employees can be granted incentive stock options or non-qualified stock options to purchase a total of up to 1,420,000 shares of Cornerstone’s common stock.  The option price for incentive stock options shall be not less than 100 percent of the fair market value of the common stock on the date of the grant.  The exercise price of the non-qualified stock options may be equal to or more or less than the fair market value of the common stock on the date of the grant.  The stock options vest at 30 percent on the second and third anniversaries of the grant date and 40 percent on the fourth anniversary.  The options expire ten years from the grant date.  At September 30, 2009, the total remaining compensation cost to be recognized on non-vested options was approximately $547,000.  A summary of the status of these stock option plans is presented in the following table:

Management performs periodic reviews for impairment in accordance with ASC 320, Investment-Debt and Equity Securities.

At September 30, 2009, the 16 (unaudited) securities with unrealized losses have depreciated 0.81 percent (unaudited) from the Bank’s amortized cost basis.  Most of these securities are guaranteed by either U.S. government corporations or agencies or had investment grade ratings upon purchase. Further, the issuers of these securities have not established any cause for default.  The unrealized losses associated with these investment securities are primarily driven by changes in interest rates and are not due to the credit quality of the securities.  These securities will continue to be monitored as a part of Cornerstone’s ongoing impairment analysis, but are expected to perform even if the rating agencies reduce the credit rating of the bond insurers.  Management evaluates the financial performance of each issuer on a quarterly basis to determine if it is probable that the issuers can make all contractual principal and interest payments.

ASC 320 requires an entity to assess whether the entity has the intent to sell the debt security or more likely than not will be required to sell the debt security before its anticipated recovery.  The Bank does not intend to sell these securities and it is not more likely than not that it will be required to sell the investments before the recovery of its amortized cost bases. In making this determination, management has considered cash flow and liquidity requirements, capital requirements, economic factors, and contractual or regulatory obligations for indication that these securities will be required to be sold before a forecasted recovery occurs.  Therefore, in management’s opinion, all securities that have been in a continuous unrealized loss position for the past 12 months or longer as of September 30, 2009 are not other-than-temporarily impaired, and therefore, no impairment charges at September 30, 2009 are warranted.

Note 6. Commitments and Contingent Liabilities

In the normal course of business, the Bank has entered into off-balance sheet financial instruments which include commitments to extend credit (i.e., including unfunded lines of credit) and standby letters of credit. Commitments to extend credit are usually the result of lines of credit granted to existing borrowers under agreements that the total outstanding indebtedness will not exceed a specific amount during the term of the indebtedness. Typical borrowers are commercial concerns that use lines of credit to supplement their treasury management functions, thus their total outstanding indebtedness may fluctuate during any time period based on the seasonality of their business and the resultant timing of their cash flows. Other typical lines of credit are related to home equity loans granted to consumers. Commitments to extend credit generally have fixed expiration dates or other termination clauses and may require payment of a fee.

Standby letters of credit are generally issued on behalf of an applicant (our customer) to a specifically named beneficiary and are the result of a particular business arrangement that exists between the applicant and the beneficiary. Standby letters of credit have fixed expiration dates and are usually for terms of two years or less unless terminated beforehand due to criteria specified in the standby letter of credit. A typical arrangement involves the applicant routinely being indebted to the beneficiary for such items as inventory purchases, insurance, utilities, lease guarantees or other third party commercial transactions. The standby letter of credit would permit the beneficiary to obtain payment from the  Bank under certain prescribed circumstances. Subsequently, the Bank would then seek reimbursement from the applicant pursuant to the terms of the standby letter of credit.
     
  The Bank follows the same credit policies and underwriting practices when making these commitments as it does for on-balance sheet instruments. Each customer’s creditworthiness is evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and the amount of collateral obtained, if any, is based on management’s credit evaluation of the customer. Collateral held varies but may include cash, real estate and improvements, marketable securities, accounts receivable, inventory, equipment, and personal property.

The contractual amounts of these commitments are not reflected in the consolidated financial statements and would only be reflected if drawn upon. Since many of the commitments are expected to expire without being drawn upon, the contractual amounts do not necessarily represent future cash requirements. However, should the commitments be drawn upon and should our customers default on their resulting obligation to us, the Bank’s maximum exposure to credit loss, without consideration of collateral, is represented by the contractual amount of those instruments.

A summary of the Bank’s total contractual amount for all off-balance sheet commitments at September 30, 2009 is as follows:

Commitments to extend credit
$ 41.0 million
Standby letters of credit
$ 3.5 million

Various legal claims also arise from time to time in the normal course of business. In the opinion of management, the resolution of claims outstanding at September 30, 2009 will not have a material effect on Cornerstone’s consolidated financial statements.

Note 7. Fair Value Disclosures

Fair Value Measurements:

ASC 820, Fair Measurements and Disclosures, defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 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.

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) or identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the entity has the ability to access as of the measurement date.

Level 2: Significant other observable inputs other than Level 1 prices, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, and other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.

Level 3: Significant unobservable inputs that reflect a company’s own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability.

Cornerstone utilizes fair value measurements to record fair value adjustments to certain assets and determine fair value disclosures.  Accordingly, securities available for sale are recorded at fair value on a recurring basis. Additionally, from time to time, Cornerstone may be required to record other assets at fair value on a nonrecurring basis, such as loans held for sale, and impaired loans.  These nonrecurring fair value adjustments typically involve application of lower of cost or market accounting or write-downs of individual assets.

Following is a description of valuation methodologies used for assets and liabilities recorded at fair value.

Securities available for sale-Investment securities available for sale are recorded at fair value on a recurring basis. Fair value measurement is based upon quoted prices, if available. If quoted prices are not available, fair values are measured using independent pricing models or other model-based valuation techniques such as the present value of future cash flows, adjusted for the security’s credit rating, prepayment assumptions and other factors such as credit loss assumptions. Level 1 securities include those traded on an active exchange, such as the New York Stock Exchange, U.S. Treasury securities that are traded by dealers or brokers in active over-the-counter markets and money market funds. Level 2 securities include mortgage-backed securities, U.S. Government securities and municipal bonds.

Impaired loans-Cornerstone does not record loans at fair value on a recurring basis. However, from time to time, a loan is considered impaired and an allowance for loan losses is established. Loans for which it is probable that payment of interest and principal will not be made in accordance with the contractual terms of the loan agreement are considered impaired. Once a loan is identified as individually impaired, management measures impairment in accordance with  ASC 310, Receivables. The fair value of impaired loans is estimated using one of several methods, including collateral value, liquidation value and discounted cash flows. Those impaired loans not requiring an allowance represent loans for which the fair value of the expected repayments or collateral exceed the recorded investments in such loans. In accordance with ASC 820, impaired loans where an allowance is established based on the fair value of collateral require classification in the fair value hierarchy. When the fair value of the collateral is based on an observable market price or a current appraised value, we record the impaired loan as nonrecurring Level 2. When an appraised value is not available or management determines the fair value of the collateral is further impaired below the appraised value and there is no observable market price, we record the impaired loan as nonrecurring Level 3.

Impaired loans, which are measured for impairment using the fair value of the collateral for collateral-dependent loans, had a carrying amount of approximately $24,821,000, with a valuation allowance of approximately $3,459,000 at September 30, 2009.  Losses derived from Level 2 inputs were calculated primarily by models utilizing estimated collateral value or the discounted present value of expected cash flows.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments:

Fair value estimates are made at a specific point in time, based on relevant market information about the financial instrument.  These estimates do not reflect any premium or discount that could result from offering for sale at one time Cornerstone's entire holdings of a particular financial instrument.  Because no market exists for a significant portion of Cornerstone’s financial instruments, fair value estimates are based on judgments regarding future expected loss experience, current economic conditions, risk characteristics of various financial instruments, and other factors.  These estimates are subjective in nature; involve uncertainties and matters of judgment; and, therefore, cannot be determined with precision.  Changes in assumptions could significantly affect the estimates.

Fair value estimates are based on existing financial instruments without attempting to estimate the value of anticipated future business and the value of assets and liabilities that are not considered financial instruments.  The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instruments:

Cash and cash equivalents:

For cash and cash equivalents, the carrying amount is a reasonable estimate of fair value.

Securities:

The fair value of securities is estimated based on bid prices published in financial newspapers or bid quotations received from securities dealers.

Federal Home Loan Bank stock:

The carrying amount of Federal Home Loan Bank stock approximates fair value based on the stock redemption provisions of the Federal Home Loan Bank.

Loans, net:

The fair value of loans is calculated by discounting scheduled cash flows through the estimated maturity using estimated market discount rates, adjusted for credit risk and servicing costs.  The estimate of maturity is based on historical experience with repayments for each loan classification, modified, as required, by an estimate of the effect of current economic and lending conditions.

Deposits:

The fair value of deposits with no stated maturity, such as demand deposits, money market accounts, and savings deposits, is equal to the amount payable on demand.  The fair value of time deposits is based on the discounted value of contractual cash flows.  The discount rate is estimated using the rates currently offered for deposits of similar remaining maturities.

Federal funds purchased and securities sold under agreements to repurchase:

The fair value of these liabilities, which are extremely short term, approximates their carrying value.

Federal Home Loan Bank advances and line of credit:

The carrying amounts of the FHLB advances and the line of credit approximate their fair value.

Commitments to extend credit:

The fair value of commitments 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.
