The Company's results continue to be positively impacted by asset quality improvements and the extinguishment of long-term Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advances in the third quarter of 2013, as discussed in greater detail below.  The prepayment of these advances has significantly improved the Company's financial position and net interest margin for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2013. 

In announcing these results, Joe A. Shearin, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "I am pleased with our Company's results for the second quarter of 2014 and the continued focus and execution of our strategic plan.  For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 we are reporting a 145.9% and a 108.3% increase in net income compared to the same periods of the prior year.  Much of our improvement continues to be driven by our asset quality improvements and the strengthening of our balance sheet through the execution of our previously disclosed strategic initiatives.  Lower asset yields and margin compression continues to be a challenge in the historically low rate environment which has been compounded by competitive pressures.  Although organic loan growth has been slower than we anticipated, I am very encouraged by the pockets of growth we are seeing in our markets that began late in the second quarter."  Shearin further commented, "During the second quarter we hired two commercial and industrial lenders and opened a loan production office in Chesterfield County, Virginia.  This will allow us to capitalize on an attractive, economically growing market that is under served, diversify risk in our loan portfolio and provide our customers with lending expertise they require." 

Shearin concluded, "The first half of 2014 was a very exciting time for our Company.  We have accomplished a number of the objectives identified in our strategic plan.  After withstanding the last several years in a difficult economy, I am extremely proud of our employees and their continued focus on growing our franchise and increasing the long-term value of our Company.  Among our many accomplishments, perhaps the most exciting is the pending acquisition of Virginia Company Bank.  EVB and Virginia Company Bank are two great organizations which share similar dedication to their customers, shareholders and the communities they serve.  We are very excited about the future prospects of our combined organization and the expansion of our branch network into the attractive and growing markets of the Virginia Peninsula." 

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, the following were significant factors in the Company's reported results:

  • Increase in net interest income of $962 thousand from the same period in 2013, principally due to a $1.4 million decrease in interest expense;
  • Net interest margin (tax equivalent basis) increased 61 basis points to 3.82% during the second quarter of 2014 as compared to 3.21% for the same period in 2013;
  • No provision for loan losses during the second quarter of 2014 compared to $600 thousand for the same period in 2013, reflecting the Company's conservative approach to provisioning for the allowance for loan losses in prior periods and a reduction in net charge-offs to $288 thousand for the second quarter of 2014 from $2.3 million in the same period of 2013;
  • Increase in nonperforming assets of $1.6 million from March 31, 2014 to June 30, 2014 due primarily to the Company placing three loans on nonaccrual status as a result of the continued deteriorating financial condition of the borrowers in the second quarter of 2014;
  • Expenses related to FDIC insurance premiums declined to $305 thousand, compared to $596 thousand for the same period in 2013, as the Company faced lower FDIC insurance assessment rates following termination of its written agreement with its federal and state banking regulators (the "Written Agreement");
  • Other operating expenses increased $261 thousand during the second quarter of 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013 and was driven primarily by higher legal and professional fees; and
  • Increase in the effective dividend on preferred stock of $165 thousand from the same period in 2013 due primarily to the dividend rate of the Company's Series A Preferred Stock increasing from 5% to 9% in the first quarter of 2014.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the following were significant factors in the Company's reported results:

  • Increase in net interest income of $2.2 million from the same period in 2013, principally due to a $2.8 million decrease in interest expense;
  • Net interest margin (tax equivalent basis) increased 66 basis points to 3.88% for the six months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to 3.22% for the same period in 2013;
  • Provision for loan losses of $250 thousand compared to $1.2 million for the same period in 2013, reflecting a reduction in net charge-offs to $399 thousand for the six months ended June 30, 2014, from $3.7 million in the same period of 2013;
  • Decrease in nonperforming assets of $1.4 million during the first six months of 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013 due to the Company's continued focus on credit quality initiatives to improve its asset quality and resolve nonperforming assets;
  • Expenses related to FDIC insurance premiums of $637 thousand, compared to $1.2 million for the same period in 2013;
  • Other operating expenses increased $352 thousand during the first six months of 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013 and was driven primarily by higher legal and professional fees; and
  • Increase in the effective dividend on preferred stock of $307 thousand from the same period in 2013 due primarily to the dividend rate of the Company's Series A Preferred Stock increasing from 5% to 9% in the first quarter of 2014.

Interest Income and Expense

Net interest income

Net interest income in the second quarter of 2014 increased $962 thousand, or 11.8%, when compared to the second quarter of 2013.  Net interest income in the six months ended June 30, 2014 increased $2.2 million, or 13.5%, when compared to the same period in 2013. The most significant factors impacting net interest income during these periods were as follows:

Positive Impacts:

  • Extinguishment of higher-rate long-term FHLB advances during the third quarter of 2013, which drove declines in the Company's interest expense and rate paid on average interest-bearing liabilities;
  • Decreases in the average balances of and average rates paid on total interest-bearing deposits;
  • Increasing yields on the investment securities portfolio driven by increases in interest rates over the comparable periods and rebalancing efforts during late 2013 and the first half of 2014, which largely consisted of accelerated prepayments on lower yield Agency mortgage-backed and Agency CMO securities and a greater allocation of the portfolio to SBA Pool securities and higher yielding, longer duration municipal securities; and
  • Increasing average loan balances.

Negative Impacts:

  • Decreasing yields on the Company's loan portfolio; and
  • Decreasing average short-term investment balances.

Total interest income

Total interest income decreased 4.1% and 3.0% for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014, as compared to the same periods in 2013, respectively.  These declines in total interest income were driven primarily by declines in the yield on the loan portfolio and a decrease in average investment securities.  These declines were partially offset by higher yields on investment securities and higher average loan balances.

Loans

Average loan balances increased for both the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014, as compared to the same periods in 2013, due primarily to the purchase of $27.2 million in performing one-to-four family residential mortgage loans in the first quarter of 2014 and the origination of a line of credit to fund loan originations through Southern Trust Mortgage, LLC (balance of $11.6 million as of June 30, 2014) in the second quarter of 2014, and partially offset by weak loan demand in the Company's markets as a result of the continuing challenging economic conditions.  In addition, due to the historically low interest rate environment, loans were originated during the second quarter and first six months of 2014 at much lower yields than seasoned loans in the Company's loan portfolio, which has contributed significantly to lower yields on the loan portfolio and lower interest income.  Total average loans were 71.1% of total average interest-earning assets for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to 66.0% for the three months ended June 30, 2013.  Total average loans were 70.7% of total average interest-earning assets for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to 66.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Investment securities

Average investment securities balances declined for both the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014, as compared to the same periods in 2013, due to the Company's efforts to rebalance the securities portfolio, while the yields increased on investment securities.  Increasing yields on the investment securities portfolio were driven by increases in interest rates over the comparable periods and rebalancing efforts during late 2013 and the first half of 2014, which largely consisted of accelerated prepayments on lower yield Agency mortgage-backed and Agency CMO securities and a greater allocation of the portfolio to SBA Pool securities and higher yielding, longer duration municipal securities.

Interest bearing deposits in other banks

Average interest bearing deposits in other banks decreased significantly for both the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014, as compared to the same periods in 2013, due to the overall decrease in our average total deposits, the purchase of $27.2 million in performing one-to-four family mortgage loans in the first quarter of 2014 and declines in average total borrowings that were largely due to extinguishing the Company's long-term FHLB advances during the third quarter of 2013.

Interest-bearing deposits

Average total interest-bearing deposit balances and related rates paid decreased for both the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014, as compared to the same periods in 2013, contributing to the reductions in interest expense in the second quarter and first six months of 2014.  Retail deposits continued to shift from higher priced certificates of deposit and money market savings accounts to lower priced checking (or "NOW") accounts. 

Borrowings

Average total borrowings and related rates paid decreased for both the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014, as compared to the same periods in 2013, significantly driving the reduction in interest expense in the second quarter and first half of 2014.  Average total borrowings and related rates paid decreased primarily due to the extinguishment of higher rate long-term FHLB advances during the third quarter of 2013.  The long-term FHLB advances were replaced with short-term FHLB advances at a significantly lower rate and lower principal balance.

 Key changes in the components of noninterest income for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, as compared to the same periods in 2013, are discussed below:

  • Service charges and fees on deposit accounts increased due to increases in service charge income on checking accounts;
  • Gain on sale of available for sale securities, net increased for the second quarter of 2014 compared to the same period of 2013 and was primarily the result of the Company adjusting the composition of the investment portfolio as part of the Company's overall asset/liability management strategy. The Company generated gains during the first six months of 2014 by selling a portion of its previously impaired agency preferred securities (FNMA & FHLMC) to remove classified assets from the Company's balance sheet and to fund purchases of taxable securities to increase the Company's sources of taxable income. The Company will continue to strategically evaluate opportunities to further adjust the composition of its investment portfolio through the balance of 2014;
  • Gain on sale of bank premises and equipment decreased as disposal gains on company vehicles were recognized in the prior year with no such gain being recognized in the second quarter of 2014; and
  • Other operating income increased for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, as compared to the same periods in 2013, primarily due to higher earnings from bank owned life insurance policies during 2014, and with respect to the three months ended June 30, 2014, higher earnings from the Bank's subsidiaries compared to the second quarter of 2013.

In addition, debit/credit card fees declined during the first six months of 2014, as compared to 2013, primarily due to lower debit card income.

Key changes in the components of noninterest expense for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, as compared to the same periods in 2013, are discussed below:

  • Salaries and employee benefits increased for the three and six month periods due to annual merit increases, lower deferred compensation on loan originations and higher group term insurance costs;
  • FDIC insurance expense decreased for the three and six month periods due to lower base assessment rates resulting from the improvement in the Bank's overall composite rating in connection with the termination of the Written Agreement in July 2013, and corresponding decreases in FDIC insurance assessment rates during 2014;
  • Collection, repossession and other real estate owned expenses decreased for the three and six month periods due to declines in carrying balances of OREO and classified assets;
  • Loss on the sale of other real estate owned declined for the three and six month periods and were driven by lower OREO balances and stabilization of real estate prices in our markets;
  • Impairment losses on other real estate owned have decreased as OREO balances have continued to decline and real estate prices in our markets have continued to stabilize; and
  • Other operating expenses increased for the three and six month periods primarily due to higher legal and professional services primarily related to the Company's investment in Southern Trust Mortgage, LLC, increased customer check and coupon incentives and additional consulting charges related to compliance and loan operations. These increases in other operating expenses were partially offset by lower telephone expense as a result of changing vendors which generated cost savings. Additionally, for the three month period, marketing and advertising expense was elevated due to increased expenditures on television, radio and newspaper advertising. However, for the six month period, marketing and advertising expense declined due to lower expenditures on television, radio and newspaper advertising that were partially offset by new branch opening expenses in the same period of 2013.
