Access National Reports 91% Increase in Fourth Quarter Earnings, Dividend Increased
RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--January 22, 2013--Access National Corporation (NASDAQ: ANCX), parent company for Access National Bank, reported record fourth quarter net income of $6.3 million, a $3.0 million increase over the $3.3 million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2011. This represents the company’s 7th consecutive record quarterly earnings and its 50th consecutive quarterly profit over its 13 year history. Net income per diluted common share was $0.60, an increase of 87.5% over the $0.32 reported in the fourth quarter of 2011.
Based on record earnings, strong capital and favorable outlook, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.09 per share for holders of record as of February 11, 2013 and payable on February 25, 2013. This dividend is in addition to the $0.70 non-routine dividend paid in the fourth quarter of 2012 and represents a 1 cent increase from the prior quarter and an 8 cent cumulative increase over the past 2 years.
The $3.0 million increase in net income between the fourth quarter of 2012 and 2011 is mainly attributable to activity in our mortgage division. Net income increased 55.6% for the year ended December 31, 2012 totaling $17.7 million compared to $11.4 million for the year 2011. Net interest margin was 3.94% for 2012 compared to 3.82% for 2011. Diluted earnings per share were $1.71 compared to $1.10 in 2011.
Annualized return on average assets was 2.97% for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 1.61% for the same quarter of 2011. Annualized return on average equity was 26.80% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to 15.87% for last year.
Total assets amounted to $863.9 million compared to $809.8 million at December 31, 2011. The increase in assets is mainly attributable to a $46.8 million or 8% growth in net loans held for investment as well as a $16.4 million or 17% growth in loans held for sale. The growth in loans held for investment was driven by a 13.3% growth in commercial and industrial loans to the bank’s target market. The asset growth was funded by a 4% growth in total deposits as well as short-term borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank.
Total deposits at December 31, 2012 increased $26.5 million from December 31, 2011. As a result of management’s continued focus on expanding business banking relationships, noninterest-bearing deposits increased $50.3 million or 44.1% from December 31, 2011, and comprised 24.5% of the deposit portfolio, up from 17.66% at December 31, 2011.
Non-performing assets (NPAs) decreased to $2.7 million or 0.32% of total assets at December 31, 2012, down from $3.6 million or 0.43% of assets at September 30, 2012. The Corporation did not have other real estate owned at December 31, 2012. The allowance for loan losses totaled $12.5 million or 2.03% of total loans held for investment as of December 31, 2012.
Net of the $0.95 in dividends paid during the year, book value per common share increased 8.9% at December 31, 2012 to $8.85, compared to $8.13 at December 31, 2011.
