Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On November 4, 2010, Allegheny Bancshares, Inc. issued a press release announcing results for the quarter ended September 30, 20010. A copy of the press release is being furnished as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.





Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.

Exhibit 99.1
ALLEGHENY BANCSHARES, INC. ANNOUNCES THIRD QUARTER 2010 FINANCIAL RESULTS
Allegheny Bancshares, Inc., the parent company of Pendleton Community Bank, is pleased to announce third quarter 2010 net income of $693,000 or $0.80 per share. This compares with third quarter 2009 income of $658,000 or $0.76 per share. This $35,000 increase in income and the $0.04 increase in earnings per share represent a 5.3% increase over the same period a year ago.
For the first nine months of 2010, Allegheny had net income of $1,766,000, which is a 51.8% increase from the net income of $1,163,000 earned the same period in 2009. Earnings per share increased from $1.34 in the first nine months of 2009 to $2.04 for the same period in 2010. Return on Average Assets (ROAA) for the first nine months was 0.96% and the Return on Average Equity (ROAE) was 8.27%. This compares to a ROAA of 0.70% and a ROAE of 5.60% for the same period of 2009.
The earnings in 2009 were low compared to 2010 due to a non-cash impairment charge of $604,000 pre-tax, equivalent to $559,000 after tax or $0.64 per share. This impairment charge related to certain restricted equity securities that were completely written off in the first quarter of 2009.
Assets increased 4.5% from December 31, 2009 to September 30, 2010 and on that date, totaled $253,908,000. Shareholders’ Equity at September 30, 2010 totaled $29,617,000.
W.A. (Bill) Loving, President and CEO, indicated he was extremely pleased with the first nine month’s performance. According to Loving, "The soft economy and current banking environment continues to be extremely challenging for all financial institutions. We are no exception. Although the US economy, and by extension our local economy, is technically out of a recession, we continue to see remnants, both on a national and local level, of this historic downturn. A common result of all downturns is the slowing of business activity and weaker loan demand. Such is the case in the markets we serve; however, while not at historic levels, we have enjoyed a 3.0% asset growth during the 3rd quarter of 2010 and 4.5% year-to-date. Another impact of the current economy is higher levels of unemployment. This condition, along with a slowing in business activity, has created higher levels of delinquencies and charge-offs. While 2010 losses are less than many of our peers, they exceed our historic levels. Accordingly we have continued to set aside higher levels of loan loss reserves in 2010. We believe this to be a prudent decision, given the continued uncertainty in our economy and higher delinquency levels.
Today’s interest rate environment has its own set of challenges. Our continued focus on this integral component of net income has resulted in a higher net interest margin. Margin improvement, coupled with increased non-interest income, has provided the additional earnings to support the higher level of reserve allocation and increased profitability in 3rd quarter 2010 in comparison with 3rd quarter 2009. Today’s performance and results could not be achieved without the dedication of our employees and the continued support of our customers. To each I extend a thank you and appreciation.
