Access National Grows Deposits and Loans, Hikes Dividend


Reston, Virginia. Access National Corporation (NASDAQ: ANCX) (the “Corporation” or “Access”), parent company for Access National Bank (the “Bank”) and Middleburg Investment Group, reported third quarter 2018 net income of $9.6 million, or $0.46 per diluted share. This represents the Corporation’s 73rd consecutive quarterly profit over its 75 quarter history. Consistent with management’s objective of a 40% dividend payout ratio against level and sustainable earnings, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.17 per share for common shareholders of record as of November 08, 2018 and payable on November 23, 2018. This dividend reflects a $0.01 increase from the prior quarter.



·For the three month period ended September 30, 2018, net income increased 7.2% compared to the preceding period and 37.2% compared to the same period of the prior year;
·Gross loans held for investment increased $110.1 million (22.2% annualized) during the three-month period to $2.1 billion at September 30, 2018;
·Excluding brokered deposits, customer deposits increased $131.8 million (25.0% annualized) during the three month period ended September 30, 2018 to $2.2 billion;
·Demand deposits of $1.2 billion at September 30, 2018 comprised 52.9% of total deposits, inclusive of $757.9 million of non-interest bearing demand deposits or 33.0% of the deposit portfolio. Non-interest bearing demand deposits increased $38.0 million and $47.2 million during the three month and twelve month periods ended September 30, 2018, respectively; and
·Tangible book value1 per common share was $12.33 at September 30, 2018, an increase of $0.34 from the linked quarter.


According to CEO Michael Clarke, “Third quarter 2018 reflects strong performance against our stated strategic growth and profitability measures as customer deposits and loans exceeded a linked quarter growth rate in excess of $200 million per annum. We experienced strong increases in nominal earnings during the period and exceeded our strategic profitability measures with Return on Tangible Common Average Equity (ROTCAE) of 15.20% compared to the target of 13.25%, and Return on Average Assets of 1.30% compared to the target of 1.25%.Mr. Clarke continued, “The announced merger with Union Bankshares Corporation (“Union”) will enable us to further accelerate growth and opportunity in our markets. We are excited about being an important part of the Union team and the combined positioning as Virginia’s regional bank.”


On a linked quarter basis, the mortgage segment margins increased while origination volume decreased, resulting in pretax earnings of $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $0.9 million for the linked quarter.


During the period, we evaluated the accounting for our low income housing tax credits as well as investments in small business investment company funds (SBICs) and elected to change the policy for these investments. We believe the change better reflects our economic interest in these investments. We believe that the results of this change are immaterial to the results of our operations and they were recorded through the current period as a one-time after-tax gain of $882 thousand or $0.04 per share on a fully diluted basis. This includes $608 thousand ($445 thousand pre-tax credit to income with a $163 thousand credit to income tax provision) related to low income housing tax credits and a $466 thousand pre-tax gain related to equity investments.
