Response of the Office of Chief Counsel
Division of Corporation Finance


Greer Bancshares, Incorporated
Incoming letter dated March 3, 2015

Based on the facts presented, the Division will not object if Greer Bancshares stops filing periodic and current reports under the Exchange Act, including its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. In reaching this position, we note that Greer Bancshares has filed post-effective amendments removing from registration unsold securities under its effective registration statements on Form S-8, and such post-effective amendments are effective. We assume that, consistent with the representations made in your letter, Greer Bancshares will file a certification on Form 15 making an appropriate claim under Exchange Act Rule 12h-3 on or before the due date of its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014.

This position is based on the representations made to the Division in your letter. Any different facts or conditions might require the Division to reach a different conclusion. Further, this response expresses the Division's position on enforcement action only and does not express any legal conclusion on the question presented.
