"Xenith made significant operational and performance strides during 2011," said T. Gaylon Layfield, III, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We completed two acquisitions that elevated our market position, we bolstered an already strong capital position, we strengthened and expanded our staff capabilities, and we realized solid and measureable improvement in our financial performance. Our ability to grow our revenue well in excess of our core expenses in 2011 created value for our bank and demonstrated progress in meeting our goal of generating sustained profitability. Excluding what we purchased in our two acquisitions, core organic loan growth was 38% and core deposit growth was 26% for 2011. With a strong capital position, solid asset quality and a seasoned management team, Xenith is well positioned to respond to appropriate growth opportunities."
For the year ended December 31, 2011, interest income was $18.9 million, up 76% from $10.8 million in 2010. Interest expense was $2.6 million in 2011, up 22% from $2.2 million in 2010. For the year ended December 31, 2011, net interest income was $16.2 million compared to $8.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2010. Increased net interest income was primarily due to a $133.5 million increase in total average interest-earning assets and a $102.9 million increase in total average interest-bearing liabilities.
Net interest margin for the year ended December 31, 2011 increased 55 basis points to 4.94%, up from 4.39% for the year ended December 31, 2010. Xenith's yield on average total interest-earning assets was 5.74% for year ended December 31, 2011, up 24 basis points from 5.50% for the year ended December 31, 2010. Xenith's cost on average total interest-bearing liabilities was 1.03%, down 37 basis points from 1.40% for the year ended December 31, 2010. Also contributing to higher net interest income was the accretion of fair value adjustments related to acquired loans and deposits.
Noninterest expense in 2011 was $16.7 million, an increase of $3.7 million, or 29%, compared to the prior year. The increase was primarily a result of Xenith's acquisition of the Richmond branch of Paragon Commercial Bank and the subsequent hiring of the Paragon branch employees. The increase also reflected increased staffing costs and expenses related to managing the loan portfolio that was acquired in the Virginia Business Bank transaction. Other factors affecting noninterest expense included increased technology costs and professional fees related to the Paragon and VBB transactions.
2011 Acquisition Activity
Xenith completed two transactions during the third quarter of 2011. The company acquired the Richmond branch of Paragon Commercial Bank, and acquired substantially all of the assets and liabilities of Virginia Business Bank in an agreement with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). The Paragon acquisition added $56.5 million of performing loans, and Xenith assumed $76.6 million of deposits. The Virginia Business Bank transaction added $56.9 million in loans, and Xenith assumed $77.5 million in deposits. The Virginia Business Bank acquisition resulted in a pre-tax bargain purchase gain of $8.7 million. Xenith has no loss sharing arrangement agreement with the FDIC.
Strong Capital Position
In April, 2011, Xenith completed the issuance and sale of 4,000,000 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $4.25 per share pursuant to an effective registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Xenith also completed the issuance and sale of an additional 600,000 shares of common stock in connection with the over-allotment option granted to the underwriters of the offering. Net proceeds, after the underwriters' discount and expenses, were $17.7 million.
In September, 2011, Xenith also received a capital investment of $8.4 million from the U. S. Department of the Treasury, through the Small Business Lending Fund (SBLF), in return for a newly-authorized class of preferred stock. The SBLF was established under the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, which was created to encourage lending to small businesses by providing additional capital to qualified banks at favorable dividend rates. Xenith's initial dividend rate in 2011 was 1%.
At December 31, 2011, Xenith had a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 13.42%, Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 17.86%, and a total risk-based capital ratio of 19.08%. Under current regulatory standards, the Bank is considered well-capitalized.
