Share:
RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Access National Corporation (NASDAQ: ANCX), parent company for Access National Bank (Bank), reported third quarter 2016 net income of $4.4 million, or $0.42 per common share. This represents the Corporation's 65th consecutive quarterly profit over its 67 quarter history. Consistent with management's stated objective of a 40%-50% payout ratio against core earnings, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.15 per share for holders of record as of October 31, 2016 and payable on November 25, 2016. The routine dividend affirms Management's favorable outlook on forward earnings and capital adequacy.

Third quarter 2016 pretax earnings rose by $879 thousand or 14.6% when compared to third quarter 2015 pretax earnings. Third quarter 2016 pretax income for the banking segment decreased $210 thousand from third quarter 2015 due mainly to an increase of $750 thousand in the provision for loan loss. The banking segment interest income increased $1.6 million when compared to third quarter 2015 which was partially offset by an increase in salaries and benefits and interest expense of $444 thousand and $577 thousand, respectively. The mortgage segment's pretax earnings increase of $1.2 million over third quarter 2015 was due mainly to an increase in gains recorded on secondary mortgage activity due to more favorable gain on sale margins.

The net interest margin decreased from 3.70% to 3.49% when comparing third quarter 2015 to third quarter 2016. On a linked quarter basis, the margin decreased from 3.51% for the three months ended June 30, 2016 when compared to 3.49% for the three months ended September 30, 2016.

On a consolidated basis, the Corporation reported annualized return on average assets of 1.34% and 1.40% for the three month periods ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Meanwhile, the annualized return on average equity was 14.92% and 15.09% for the three month periods ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Total assets were $1.4 billion at September 30, 2016 and grew $184.3 million and $244.6 million when compared to December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, respectively. The $184.3 million growth in assets since December 31, 2015 was due mainly to an increase in loans held for investment of $79.1 million and a $43.2 million increase in interest-bearing balances. Additionally, loans held for sale increased $26.9 million while investment securities increased $25.0 million from December 31, 2015. Commercial loan growth continues to remain the leading driver in the year-over-year growth rate of loans held for investment of 13.8%.

Total deposits at September 30, 2016 were $1.115 billion, an increase of $201.3 million and $183.6 million when compared to December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, respectively. At September 30, 2016, non-interest bearing deposits were $409.6 million, an increase of $101.8 million from the December 31, 2015 figure and an increase of $75.3 million from the September 30, 2015 figure. The year-over-year growth rate in non-interest bearing deposits of 22.5% was due to management's continued focus on expanding business banking relationships. Interest-bearing deposits increased to $705.5 million at September 30, 2016, an increase of $99.5 million since December 31, 2015 and an increase of $108.3 million when compared to the September 30, 2015 balances. A targeted marketing campaign was the majority of the reason for growth in this category which saw a year-over-year increase in savings and money market accounts of $123.4 million and an increase in time deposits of $29.2 million. These increases were offset by a $48.7 million reduction in wholesale funding when comparing September 30, 2016 to September 30, 2015.

Non-performing assets (NPAs) decreased to $5.8 million at September 30, 2016 from $6.6 million at September 30, 2015, representing 0.43% and 0.59% of total assets, respectively. The allowance for loan loss was $14.7 million and $13.5 million at September 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015, respectively, and represented 1.52% and 1.59% of total loans held for investment at September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Book value per common share increased from $10.23 at September 30, 2015 to $11.44 at September 30, 2016. The tangible common equity ratio for Access National Corporation and its subsidiary bank was 8.78% at September 30, 2016, within the Corporation's target range of 8.00% to 10.50%.
