Alliance Bankshares Reports Third Quarter Results

CHANTILLY, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Alliance Bankshares Corporation (NASDAQ – ABVA) today reported a net loss of $170 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Results during the quarter were primarily impacted by reduced interest income, merger-related expenses, OREO expenses and valuation write-downs, and a negative adjustment to the $25 million FHLB advance carried at fair value, the total of which offset gains on the sale of investment securities and favorable reductions in non-interest expenses, interest expense and the provision for loan losses. Due to improvement in the overall risk profile of the loan portfolio and a lower level of total loans, the Company released a portion of its allowance for loan losses into income and also did not recognize a provision expense during the quarter. On a year-to-date basis, the Company has experienced a loss of $1.52 million. The quarterly results represent a loss of $.03 per share versus a loss of $.10 per share for the same period in 2011, while the year-to-date results represent a loss of $.30 per share versus income of $.05 per share for the same period in 2011. Alliance's regulatory capital ratios at September 30, 2012 remain above the levels necessary to be considered a “well capitalized” institution.

At September 30, 2012, total assets amounted to $521.9 million, an increase of 3% as compared to the level at December 31, 2011. Total loans were $288 million at September 30, 2012, reflecting a decline of 6.2% since December 31, 2011. The decline in the loan portfolio results from a combination of strategic repositioning of lending activities, normal amortization and payoffs, the total of which offset new loan production during the period. Investment securities amounted to $79.4 million as of September 30, 2012, a decline of $44.1 million from the December 31, 2011 level of $123.5 million. Total deposits at September 30, 2012, were $414.2, reflecting an 8.9% increase from the level at December 31, 2011. Strong growth in title agency-related deposits, coupled with a strategic shift of funding from repurchase agreements into deposits, contributed to the increase in overall deposits.

Non-performing assets (NPAs) of $15.9 million at September 30, 2012 were 11.6% lower when compared to $18.0 million at December 31, 2011. The overall decrease resulted largely from a reduction of 18.2% in non-accrual loans during the quarter as compared to year end 2011. NPAs-to-total assets declined from 3.51% at December 31, 2011, to 2.94% at September 30, 2012. At September 30, 2011, the allowance for loan losses stood at $4.9 million, or 1.69% of loans.

The Company's net interest margin for the nine months was 3.10%, a decrease from 3.74% when compared to the same period in 2011. The margin decline resulted largely from the reduced yield in the investment portfolio due to pre-payments of CMOs, a change in the mix of investments and lower reinvestment rates available in the market.

On May 3, 2012, the Company and WashingtonFirst Bankshares entered into an agreement to merge. Details regarding the terms of the merger are disclosed in the SEC 8-K filed by the Company on May 8, 2012, and in the SEC DEFM14A filed by the Company on November 9, 2012. The merger is expected to close during the fourth quarter 2012.
