Access National Reports 33% Increase In Third Quarter Earnings, Dividend Increased

Access National Corporation (NASDAQ: ANCX), parent company for Access National Bank, reported record third quarter net income of $4.1 million, a $1.0 million increase over the $3.1 million recorded in the third quarter of 2011. This represents the company’s 5 th consecutive quarterly earnings in excess of $3 million and its 49 th consecutive quarterly profit over its 12¾ year history. Net income per diluted common share was $0.40, an increase of 33.3% over the $0.30 reported in the third quarter of 2011.

Based on record earnings, strong capital and favorable outlook, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.08 per share for holders of record as of November 07, 2012 and payable on November 23, 2012. This dividend represents a 2 cent increase from the prior quarter and a 7 cent cumulative increase over the past 2 years.

Net income increased 42% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 totaling $11.5 million compared to $8.1 million for the same period in 2011. Net interest margin remained steady at 3.95% for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to 3.85% for the same period in 2011. Diluted earnings per share were $1.11 compared to $0.78 in 2011.

Annualized return on average assets was 1.98% for the third quarter of 2012 compared to 1.69% for the same quarter of 2011. Annualized return on average equity was 17.93% for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to 15.92% for the same period last year.

Total assets amounted to $849.3 million compared to $809.8 million at December 31, 2011. The increase in assets is mainly attributable to an increase in both loans held for investment and investment securities, and was funded by a significant increase in core deposits.

Total deposits at September 30, 2012 increased $60.8 million or 9.42% from December 31, 2011. As a result of management’s continued focus on expanding business banking relationships, noninterest bearing deposits increased $78.9 million or 69.31% from December 31, 2011 and comprised 27.32% of the deposit portfolio, up from 17.66% at December 31, 2011. The overall increase in deposits allowed the Company to decrease its borrowings which, coupled with other factors, contributed to the increase in net interest margin.
