MCLEAN, Va., Oct. 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Southern National Bancorp of Virginia Inc. (Nasdaq:SONA), the holding company for Sonabank, announced today that net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 was $1.1 million and $3.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 compared to $88 thousand and $637 thousand during the third quarter and the first nine months of 2009. The earnings for the quarter and the nine months were reasonably good as we continued to slog through a difficult environment. Our loan pipeline appears strong, but in more and more cases we are finding serious problems during the underwriting process where the potential borrower is in default or on the edge of default with other lenders. As a result, and with payoffs in the Greater Atlantic FDIC covered portfolio, loan growth has slowed.
