Richmond, Va., January 23, 2013 - Union First Market Bankshares Corporation (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: UBSH) today reported net income of $9.4 million and earnings per share of $0.37 for its fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012. The quarterly results represent a decrease of $184,000, or 1.9%, in net income from the most recent quarter and an increase of $1.1 million, or 12.9%, from the same quarter ended December 31, 2011. Reported earnings per share of $0.37 for the current quarter were unchanged from the most recent quarter and increased $0.09, or 32.1%, from the prior year’s fourth quarter. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $35.4 million, an increase of $5.0 million, or 16.3%, from 2011 resulting in earnings per share of $1.37, an increase of $0.30, or 28.0%, from $1.07 for the year ended December 31, 2011. Earnings per share for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2011 included preferred dividends and discount accretion on preferred stock of $1.1 million and $2.7 million, respectively.

“The fourth quarter and full year results demonstrate the continued success and resilience of our business strategy as Union remains committed to achieving top quartile financial performance nationally and providing our shareholders with above average returns on their investment,” said G. William Beale, Chief Executive Officer of Union First Market Bankshares. “Our disciplined approach to loan and deposit growth and related pricing, focus on increasing revenues through new product and service offerings, our ongoing pursuit to more efficiently deliver best in class service to our customers and to diligently manage expenses, as well as our steadfast focus on asset quality served us well in 2012 and effectively positions us to deliver sustainable top tier financial performance in the future.”

“During the quarter, our growth strategy continued to yield results as the company experienced loan growth for the fifth consecutive quarter, customer deposit levels grew at a strong pace and Union Mortgage continued to increase its contribution to the Company’s bottom line. In addition, asset quality trends remained positive during the quarter as nonperforming assets declined to their lowest levels in three years. As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the Company’s efficiency ratio we completed the implementation of several initiatives that will result in increased non-interest income and expense savings in 2013. Finally, during the quarter we increased the Company’s dividend for the third time in 2012 and repurchased 750,000 shares as part of our commitment to shareholder returns and effective capital management. All in all, it was another solid quarter and year for Union and one that we expect to build upon in the quarters ahead,” Beale concluded.
