Virginia Commerce Bancorp, Inc. is the parent bank holding company for Virginia Commerce Bank, a Virginia state chartered bank that commenced operations in May 1988. The Bank pursues a traditional community banking strategy, offering a full range of business and consumer banking services through twenty-eight branch offices, one residential mortgage office and one wealth management services office, principally to individuals and small-to-medium size businesses in Northern Virginia and the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. area.


The Company prepares its financial statements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or “GAAP”. However, this press release also refers to certain non-GAAP financial measures that we believe, when considered together with GAAP financial measures, provide investors with important information regarding our operational performance. An analysis of any non-GAAP financial measure should be used in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted operating earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure that reflects net income available to common stockholders excluding impairment loss on securities, realized gains and losses on sale of securities, death benefits received from bank-owned life insurance, and other certain non-recurring items. These excluded items are difficult to predict and we believe that adjusted operating earnings provides the Company and investors with a valuable measure of the Company’s operational performance and a valuable tool to evaluate the Company’s financial results. Calculation of adjusted operating earnings for the three months ended December 31, 2012, December 31, 2011, and September 30, 2012, is as follows:

Three Months Three Months
Ended Ended
December 31,   September 30,
(Dollars in thousands) 2012   2011   2012
Net Income Available to Common Stockholders $4,230 $ 5,434 $7,122
Adjustments to net income available to common stockholders:
Realized gain on sale of securities (1,454) -- (2,056)
Net tax effect adjustment 509 -- 720
Acceleration of the accretion of the preferred stock discount 2,061 -- --
Adjusted Operating Earnings $5,346 $ 5,434 $5,786
Earnings per common share-diluted $ 0.12 $0.17 $0.21
Adjustments to earnings per common share-diluted
Realized gain on sale of securities, net tax affect $(0.02) -- $(0.04)
Acceleration of the accretion of the preferred stock discount $ 0.06 -- --
Adjusted operating earnings per common share-diluted $ 0.16 $0.17 $0.17

The adjusted efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP financial measure that is computed by dividing non-interest expense by the sum of net interest income on a tax equivalent basis, and non-interest income excluding impairment loss on securities, realized gains and losses on sale of securities, and death benefits received from bank-owned life insurance. We believe that this measure provides investors with important information about our operating efficiency. Comparison of our adjusted efficiency ratio with those of other companies may not be possible because other companies may calculate the adjusted efficiency ratio differently. Calculation of the adjusted efficiency ratio for the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, and December 31, 2011, is as follows:

Three Months Ended Twelve Months Ended
