Heritage Bankshares, Inc. Announces Record First Quarter Net Income; Declares Dividends

NORFOLK, Va., April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Heritage Bankshares, Inc. ("Heritage"; the "Company") (OTCBB: HBKS), the parent of Heritage Bank (the "Bank"), today announced unaudited financial results for the first quarter of 2011.

The Company's net income for the first quarter of 2011 was $560,000, compared to net income of $361,000 for the first quarter of 2010, an increase of $199,000, or 55.1%.  This result represents record earnings for Heritage for the first quarter of a year.

After the impact of dividends on our outstanding TARP preferred stock and accelerated accretion of a portion of the discount on our outstanding TARP preferred stock resulting from the partial TARP redemption previously announced, earnings per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 were $0.16, compared to $0.09 for the quarter ended March 31, 2010, an increase of 77.8%.  

Michael S. Ives, President and CEO of the Company and the Bank, commented:

"Once more, Heritage demonstrates the effectiveness of its business model of concentrating on business lending and core deposits.  Comparing the first quarter of 2011 with the first quarter of 2010, our net interest income increased markedly, our noninterest expense decreased, and our asset quality remained excellent.  Overall, our first quarter net income increased 55.1% from 2010 to 2011."

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2011 and 2010

Overview.   The Company's pretax income was $833,000 for the first quarter of 2011, compared to pretax income of $563,000 for the first quarter of 2010, an increase of $270,000.  This increase resulted from a $366,000 increase in net interest income combined with a $174,000 decrease in noninterest expense, partially offset by a decrease in noninterest income of $270,000.

Net Interest Income.  The Company's net interest income before provision for loan losses increased by $366,000 to $2.72 million in the first quarter of 2011, compared to $2.36 million in the first quarter of 2010.  Interest income in the first quarter of 2011 grew significantly, primarily due to a $36.2 million increase in our average loan portfolio compared to the first quarter of 2010.  Our interest rate spread increased 50 basis points from 3.47% in the first quarter of 2010 to 3.97% in the first quarter of 2011, and our net interest margin increased 48 basis points from 3.85% in the first quarter of 2010 to 4.33% in the first quarter of 2011.

Provision for Loan Losses.  No provision for loan losses was recorded for the first quarter of either 2011 or 2010.

Noninterest Income.  Total noninterest income decreased by $270,000, from $454,000 in the first quarter of 2010 to $184,000 in the first quarter of 2011.  The Company recognized a  $254,000 gain on the sale of investment securities in the first quarter of 2010, but did not sell any securities in the first quarter of 2011, largely accounting for the decrease.

Noninterest Expense.  Total noninterest expense decreased by $174,000 from $2.25 million in the first quarter of 2010 to $2.07 million in the first quarter of 2011.  Compensation expense decreased by $145,000, from $1.23 million in the first quarter of 2010 to $1.08 million in the first quarter of 2011, primarily attributable to various compensation accruals in 2010 that did not recur in 2011.

Income Taxes.  The Company's income tax expense for the first quarter of 2011 was $273,000, reflecting an effective tax rate of 32.8%, compared to income tax expense of $202,000 for the first quarter of 2010, reflecting an effective tax rate of 35.9%.  This reduction is primarily attributable to an increase in tax-exempt interest income from certain loans.

Net Income Available to Common Stockholders.  After the impact of dividends and accelerated accretion of the discount on our outstanding TARP preferred stock, net income available to common stockholders was $361,000 for the first quarter of 2011, compared to $215,000 for the first quarter of 2010.  The Company repaid $2.6 million, or 25%, of its outstanding TARP preferred stock in March 2011, with a resulting decrease in net income available to common shareholders of $57,000 from the accelerated accretion of a portion of the discount on our outstanding TARP preferred stock.

Financial Condition of the Company

Total Assets.  The Company's total assets increased by $3.5 million, or 1.3%, from $268.1 million at March 31, 2010 to $271.6 million at March 31, 2011.  The increase in assets resulted primarily from a $36.1 million, or 20.2%, increase in loans held for investment, net, offset by $32.6 million, or 44.7%, decrease in securities and cash held at other banks.  

Investments.  Investment securities available for sale were $17.9 million at March 31, 2011 compared to $33.9 million at March 31, 2010, a decrease of $16.0 million, or 47.2%.  Certificates of deposit and interest-bearing deposits in other banks and federal funds sold decreased by a total of $16.6 million, or 47.4%, from $35.0 million at March 31, 2010 to $18.4 million at March 31, 2011.  The proceeds from these decreases in investment securities, bank deposits, and federal funds sold were primarily used to fund new loans.  

Loans.  Loans held for investment, net, were $214.5 million at March 31, 2011, an increase of $36.1 million, or 20.2%, from the loan balance of $178.5 million at March 31, 2010.  

Asset Quality.  Nonperforming assets were $263,000, or 0.10% of assets, at March 31, 2011, compared to $310,000, or 0.12% of assets, at March 31, 2010.  The Company's sole nonperforming asset as of March 31, 2011 consisted of a bank branch site that we no longer plan to utilize.

Deposits.  The Company achieved a net increase in total deposits of $7.3 million, or 3.3%, from $219.1 million at March 31, 2010 to $226.4 million at March 31, 2011.  Core deposits, which are comprised of noninterest-bearing, money market, NOW and savings deposits, increased by $10.5 million, or 6.2%, from $167.7 million at March 31, 2010 to $178.2 million at March 31, 2011.

Average total deposits increased by $10.5 million, or 4.8%, from $217.3 million during the three months ended March 31, 2010 compared to $227.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011.  Average core deposits increased by $9.6 million over the comparable three-month periods.  In addition, the mix of average noninterest-bearing deposits to average total deposits increased from 32.7% in the first three months of 2010 to 36.5% in the first three months of 2011, further contributing to the improvement in our net interest margin.

Borrowed Funds.  Borrowed funds decreased by $2.4 million, from $10.4 million at March 31, 2010 to $8.0 million at March 31, 2011.  This reduction related to a decrease of $4.4 million in securities sold under agreements to repurchase partially offset by a $2.0 million increase in Federal Home Loan Bank advances and other borrowings.

Capital.  Stockholders' equity decreased by $1.6 million, or 4.4%, from $36.8 million at March 31, 2010 to $35.2 million at March 31, 2011.  In March 2011, consistent with our strategic plan and with the approval of the U.S. Treasury, the Company redeemed 2,606 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, resulting in a decrease of $2.6 million in the outstanding balance of our TARP preferred stock.  This decrease in stockholders' equity was partially offset by an increase in retained earnings of $1.1 million between March 31, 2010 and March 31, 2011.

Certain reclassifications have been made to prior period financial statements to conform them to the current period presentation.

The tables attached to and incorporated within this release present in greater detail certain of the unaudited financial information described above.

Dividend

On April 27, 2011, our Board of Directors declared a $0.06 per share dividend on our common stock.  The dividend will be paid on May 20, 2011 to shareholders of record on May 9, 2011.

The same day, the Board of Directors also declared quarterly dividends on the preferred stock issued by the Company in connection with our participation in the TARP Capital Purchase Program.  Specifically, the Board declared (a) a cash dividend in the aggregate amount of $93,712.50 on the outstanding shares of our Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A, and (b) a cash dividend in the aggregate amount of $6,817.50 on the outstanding shares of our Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series B (collectively, the "Preferred Dividends").  The Preferred Dividends are payable on May 16, 2011 to the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the sole holder of record of such preferred stock.
