Access National Reports Record Quarterly Earnings, Declares Dividend

Access National Corporation (NASDAQ: ANCX), parent company for Access National Bank, reported third quarter net income of $3.1 million, a record level of quarterly earnings and a 27.8% increase over the $2.4 million recorded in the third quarter of 2010.

Net income per diluted common share was $0.30, an increase of 30.4% over the $0.23 reported in the third quarter of 2010. The increase in net income is primarily due to a combination of a decrease in interest expense and an increase in non-interest income.

While mortgage banking earnings rose in the year over year period, the core commercial banking segment contributed 83.5% of the year to date earnings in 2011 compared to 76% in 2010.
