"Xenith made decisive and measurable progress advancing our strategic growth initiatives during the first three quarters of 2011," said T. Gaylon Layfield, III, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We completed two acquisitions that enabled us to strengthen our market position, add to our already strong capital position, continue to build and expand our staff capabilities, and continue to improve our financial performance. Our strong capital position, solid asset quality, and experienced team position Xenith to respond quickly and effectively to appropriate growth opportunities available within our target markets. Our primary focus for the remainder of 2011 and for 2012 will be organic growth within our target markets in order to build the scale necessary to attain consistent profitability."
Interest income grew by 94% in the third quarter of 2011, to $5.6 million, reflecting a $175.2 million increase in average interest-earning assets compared to the prior year quarter. Interest expense for the third quarter of 2011 increased by $0.2 million, or 39%, compared to the third quarter of 2010, reflecting a $133.1 million increase in average interest-bearing deposit balances, partially offset by a 27 basis point decline in the average rate paid on these deposits. Net interest income was $4.8 million for the third quarter of 2011, an increase of $2.5 million, or 108%, compared to the prior year quarter. Interest income grew by 63% for the first nine months of 2011 to $12.3 million compared to $7.5 million in the prior year period. Interest expense for the first nine months of 2011 increased by $0.2 million, or 12%, compared to the prior year period. Net interest income for the first nine months of 2011 was $10.5 million, an increase of $6.8 million, or 190%, compared to the prior year period.
Net interest margin for third quarter 2011 was 5.01%, up 59 basis points compared to 4.42% for third quarter 2010. The increase in net interest margin reflects the Company's disciplined asset and liability pricing efforts as well as accretion of loan purchase discounts. Net interest margin for the first nine months of 2011 was 4.76%, 62 basis points higher than the prior year period, again reflecting disciplined asset and liability pricing as well as accretion of loan purchase discounts.
Third quarter 2011 non-interest expense was $4.9 million, an increase of $1.6 million compared to the prior year quarter. The increase was primarily a result of the Company's acquisition of the Richmond branch of Paragon Commercial Bank and the subsequent hiring of the Paragon branch employees. In addition, the Company hired a number of personnel and incurred costs associated with problem assets that resulted from the Virginia Business Bank transaction. Non-interest expense for the first nine months of 2011 was $11.8 million, an increase of $1.8 million compared to the prior year period. The increase was primarily related to the increased compensation and benefits expense and transaction and related costs discussed above.
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 approximately $56.5 million of performing loans, and Xenith assumed approximately $76.6 million of deposits. The Virginia Business Bank transaction added approximately $56.9 million in loans, and Xenith assumed approximately $77.5 million in deposits. The Virginia Business Bank acquisition resulted in a pre-tax bargain purchase gain of $8.7 million.
During the third quarter of 2011, the Company received a capital investment of $8.4 million from the United States Department of the Treasury, through the Small Business Lending Fund (SBLF), in return for a newly-authorized class of preferred stock. The SBLF is a $30 billion voluntary program 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. The Company's initial dividend rate is 1%.
