Based on the bank's performance, the Board of Directors of Potomac Bancshares at its October 8, 2013 meeting declared a 4 cent per share dividend for all shareholders of record on October 22, 2013. This cash dividend will be payable on November 1, 2013.

The bank also opened a new loan production office in Middleburg, Virginia earlier this year. Baronner said, "The Middleburg location thus far has exceeded our expectations for loan production during its first six months of operation. We expect this office and the new Hagerstown location will make significant contributions to our growth in 2014."
