WARRENTON, Va., Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Fauquier Bankshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: FBSS) parent company of The Fauquier Bank (TFB) reported net income of $1.05 million for the second quarter of 2015 compared with $1.24 million for the second quarter of 2014. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2015 were $0.28 compared with earnings per share of $0.33 in the second quarter 2014. Net income for the first six months of 2015 was $1.79 million compared with $2.23 million for the same period of 2014. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the first six months of 2015 were $0.48 compared with $0.60 for the first six months of 2014.

Randy Ferrell, President and CEO stated, "We have seen numerous positive trends continue this quarter. We have seen net loans increase, transaction deposits continue to grow, and nonperforming assets continue to decline. We continue to work on increasing our profitability through additional loan and transaction deposit growth."

Return on average assets (ROAA) was 0.70% and return on average equity (ROAE) was 7.51% for the second quarter of 2015, compared with 0.83% and 9.35%, respectively, for the second quarter of 2014. For the six month period ended June 30, 2015, Fauquier Bankshares' return on average assets was 0.60% and return on average equity was 6.47%, compared with 0.75% and 8.57% respectively, for the six month period ended June 30, 2014.

Net interest margin was 3.62% in the second quarter of 2015 compared with 3.55% for the same period in 2014. Net interest income for the second quarter of 2015 increased $87,000 to $4.91 million when compared with $4.82 million for the same period in 2014. The average yield on earning assets decreased 2 basis points while cost of funds declined 12 basis points from the second quarter of 2014. Net interest margin was 3.61% in the first half of 2015 compared with 3.59% for the first half of 2014. Net interest income for the first six months of 2015 increased $43,000 to $9.72 million when compared with $9.68 million for the same period in 2014.

Total assets were $597.8 million on June 30, 2015 compared with $600.8 million on June 30, 2014. Net loans increased 2.5% to $447.3 million on June 30, 2015 compared with $436.6 million on June 30, 2014. Total deposits were $516.2 million on June 30, 2015 compared with $522.8 million on June 30, 2014. Transaction deposits (Demand and interest checking accounts) grew $14.0 million or 4.66% to $315.3 million compared with $301.3 million in the second quarter of 2014, now representing 61.1% of total deposits.  

"Recognizing that checking and debit card accounts need to be secure as well as convenient, we are going to provide the Bank's customers with improved technology for debit and credit cards transactions," Ferrell said. "Chip-and-PIN technology creates a more secure payment experience which greatly reduces fraud for "card-present" transactions. We will begin production of Chip-and-PIN cards for our customers beginning the fourth quarter of this year."

Nonperforming assets decreased $2.1 million to $2.7 million, or 0.46% of total assets, on June 30, 2015, compared with $4.8 million, or 0.81% of total assets, on June 30, 2014. Included in nonperforming assets on June 30, 2015 were $876,000 of nonperforming loans and $1.87 million of other real estate owned. The decrease is attributable to a $1.3 million decrease in nonperforming loans and a $1.2 million decrease in nonperforming corporate bonds, partially offset by a $465,000 increase in other real estate owned.

"Nonperforming loans are the lowest they have been in years and are approximately 60% lower than they were at this time last year. While we had a slight increase in other real estate owned this quarter, it was more than offset by the substantial decrease in nonperforming loans and the elimination of nonperforming corporate bonds," Ferrell said.

Net loan charge-offs in the second quarter of 2015 were $802,000 compared with net loan recoveries of $122,000 in the second quarter of 2014. The ratio of net loan charge-offs to average loans outstanding for the second quarter of 2015 was 0.18% compared with net loan recoveries of 0.03% for 2014. Net loan charge-offs for the first six months of 2015 were $808,000 compared with net loan recoveries of $86,000 for the same period in 2014. The ratio of net loan charge-offs to average loans outstanding was 0.18% for the six month period ended June, 30 2015, compared with net loan recoveries of 0.02% for the same period in 2014.

Provision for loan losses was $100,000 for the second quarter and first six months of 2015 compared with no provision for loan losses for the same periods in 2014. Allowance for loan losses was $4.68 million or 1.04% of total loans on June 30, 2015 compared with $6.75 million or 1.52% on June 30, 2014. The allowance for loan losses coverage ratio was 5.35 times nonperforming loans on June 30, 2015 compared with 3.06 times for the same period in 2014.

Noninterest income remained the same at $1.70 million in the second quarter 2015 compared with in the same quarter in 2014. Noninterest income decreased $149,000 to $2.97 million during the first six months of 2015 compared with $3.12 million during the same period in 2014. Wealth management revenue increased $62,000 or 6.0% from the first six months of 2014. This favorable variance was offset by a decrease of $211,000 to service charges and other income totaling $1.87 million for the first six months of 2015 compared with $2.08 million for the first six months of 2014. The decrease in the first half of 2015 is primarily due to the recognition of passive losses within community development tax credit investments. These passive losses will be more than offset in future periods by federal tax credits related to low/moderate income housing and/or buildings of historical significance.

Noninterest expense for the second quarter 2015 increased $299,000 or 6.1%, to $5.15 million compared with $4.85 million for the second quarter 2014. The largest component of noninterest expense, salaries and benefits, increased by $105,000 for the quarter. The increase in salaries and benefits is partially attributable to an increase in staffing. Additionally, consulting and legal expenses increased due to management succession and other real estate owned activities. Noninterest expense for the first six months of 2015 increased $531,000 or 5.4% to $10.36 million compared with $9.83 million for the same period in 2014.

Shareholders' equity increased $2.6 million to $56.1 million on June 30, 2015 compared with $53.5 million on June 30, 2014. The book value per common share increased 4.5% to $14.98 on June 30, 2015 compared with $14.34 on June 30, 2014. Fauquier Bankshares' stock price closed at $15.38 per share on August 3, 2015.

On January 1, 2015, new minimum capital requirements became effective as part of the Basel III regulatory capital reforms. On June 30, 2015, the Bank's leverage ratio was 9.75% and the Bank's common equity tier 1 capital ratio was 12.01%. The Bank's tier 1 and total risk-based ratios were 12.01% and 12.98%, respectively, on June 30, 2015. The Bank exceeds all fully phased-in capital requirements of Basel III (effective January 1, 2015 with the fully phased-in requirements effective January 1, 2019) on June 30, 2015.
