Access National Reports 91% Increase In Fourth Quarter Earnings, Dividend Increased

Access National Corporation (NASDAQ: ANCX), parent company for Access National Bank, reported record fourth quarter net income of $6.3 million, a $3.0 million increase over the $3.3 million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2011. This represents the company’s 7 th consecutive record quarterly earnings and its 50 th consecutive quarterly profit over its 13 year history. Net income per diluted common share was $0.60, an increase of 87.5% over the $0.32 reported in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Based on record earnings, strong capital and favorable outlook, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.09 per share for holders of record as of February 11, 2013 and payable on February 25, 2013. This dividend is in addition to the $0.70 non-routine dividend paid in the fourth quarter of 2012 and represents a 1 cent increase from the prior quarter and an 8 cent cumulative increase over the past 2 years.

The $3.0 million increase in net income between the fourth quarter of 2012 and 2011 is mainly attributable to activity in our mortgage division. Net income increased 55.6% for the year ended December 31, 2012 totaling $17.7 million compared to $11.4 million for the year 2011. Net interest margin was 3.94% for 2012 compared to 3.82% for 2011. Diluted earnings per share were $1.71 compared to $1.10 in 2011.

Annualized return on average assets was 2.97% for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 1.61% for the same quarter of 2011. Annualized return on average equity was 26.80% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to 15.87% for last year.

Total assets amounted to $863.9 million compared to $809.8 million at December 31, 2011. The increase in assets is mainly attributable to a $46.8 million or 8% growth in net loans held for investment as well as a $16.4 million or 17% growth in loans held for sale. The growth in loans held for investment was driven by a 13.3% growth in commercial and industrial loans to the bank’s target market. The asset growth was funded by a 4% growth in total deposits as well as short-term borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank.
