  • Proactively deferred $133.0 million in loans as of June 30, 2020 in response to COVID-19

  • Loan loss provisions through the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $1.6 million, up from $185,000 for the same period in 2019, most of the 2020 loan loss provisions are related to the potential adverse economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic

  • Nonperforming assets of $3.6 million, down 7.7% from December 31, 2019

  • On April 27, 2020, the Bank became a member bank of the Federal Reserve System through the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond

  • Named to American Banker magazine’s Top 200 Publicly Traded Community Banks and Thrifts. The ranking is based on a company’s three-year average return on average equity (ROAE) through December 31, 2019. The Company came in at #90, up 20 spots from last year. This is the fourth consecutive year the Company has been named to the prestigious list.

Tom Wayne, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, reported, “In the midst of the unprecedented challenges presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I am extremely pleased with our financial performance thus far in 2020, and very proud of our bank’s support of the local community through our participation in the PPP program and our loan deferral program which is structured to assist borrowers that have been impacted by COVID-19. Since the pandemic began, we have followed local, state, and national guidelines, and have adapted our sales and service processes to seamlessly service our clients and new clients while keeping our teams safe. While it is difficult to accurately predict the next few quarters and the impact of COVID-19 on our local and national economy, I am thankful to have our experienced team of bankers and a supportive board of directors as we address future challenges and opportunities.”

The Company announced that its board of directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share of common stock. The dividend is payable on September 4, 2020 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 21, 2020. “We are pleased to announce our quarterly cash dividend to our stockholders,” said Tom Wayne. “Paying stockholders a portion of our earnings reflects our continuing commitment to enhance stockholder value.”

The Bank’s capital ratios remain strong and exceeded all regulatory requirements at June 30, 2020. As of June 30, 2020, the Company’s stockholders’ equity was 7.7% of total assets, down from 8.5% as of December 31, 2019.

With respect to the consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2020, net interest income was $4.4 million, which was an increase from $4.1 million during the same period in 2019. For the three months ended June 30, 2020, the net interest margin was 3.60% compared to 3.72% for the same period in 2019, a decrease of 12 basis points. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, net interest income was $8.4 million, compared to $8.1 million during the same period in 2019. The net interest margin was 3.58% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 3.72% for the same period in 2019, a decrease of 14 basis points.

The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $489,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared with a provision of $225,000 for the same period in 2019. For the six months ended June 30, 2020 the Company recorded a provision of $1.6 million compared with a provision of $185,000 for the same period in 2019. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans was 1.00% at June 30, 2020 compared to 0.90% at December 31, 2019. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans not including PPP loans was 1.11% at June 30, 2020. The increase in the allowance for loan losses in 2020 was largely the result of the Company increasing the qualitative factors in its allowance for loan loss model due to the deteriorating economic outlook related to COVID-19. Nonperforming assets represented 0.65% of total assets at June 30, 2020, compared to 0.82% at December 31, 2019.

Noninterest income totaled $946,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared with $847,000 for the same period in 2019, an increase of $99,000 or 11.7%. The biggest contributor to the increase was a gain on sale of SBA loans (not PPP loans) of $261,000 in the second quarter of 2020 and no such gains in the comparable period in 2019. A $164,000 gain on sale of securities for the three months ended June 30, 2019, and no such gain in 2020 partially offset the increase in gain on sale of SBA loans. Noninterest income totaled $1.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared with $1.4 million for the same period in 2019, an increase of $170,000 or 11.7%. The biggest contributor to the increase was a gain on sale of SBA loans (not PPP loans) of $261,000 in the second quarter of 2020 and no such gains in the comparable period in 2019. A $164,000 gain on sale of securities for the three months ended June 30, 2019, and no such gain in 2020 partially offset the increase in gain on sale of SBA loans.

Noninterest expense totaled $3.4 million in the three months ended June 30, 2020, a decrease of $144,000, or 4.1%, from the same period in 2019. A decrease in salaries, primarily due to credits in payroll taxes as a result of provisions in the CARES Act, was responsible for most of this decrease. Noninterest expense totaled $6.7 million in the six months ended June 30, 2020, a decrease of $174,000, or 2.5%, from 2019. A decrease in salaries, primarily due to credits in payroll taxes as a result of provisions in the CARES Act as well as lower incentive payments in 2020 compared to 2019, was responsible for most of this decrease.
