WEST POINT, Va. and POWHATAN, Va., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- C&F Financial Corporation ("C&F") (NASDAQ: CFFI), the one-bank holding company for Citizens and Farmers Bank (or C&F Bank), and Central Virginia Bankshares, Inc. ("CVB") (OTCQB: CVBK), the one-bank holding company for Central Virginia Bank, jointly announce that at a special meeting reconvened on September 24, 2013, the shareholders of CVB approved the acquisition of CVB by C&F. In addition, C&F has received all regulatory approvals to proceed with the acquisition of CVB. C&F and CVB intend to complete the merger in October 2013 following the satisfaction of all closing conditions.

"We are pleased to have the support of CVB shareholders for creating a stronger combined organization," said Larry G. Dillon, C&F's President and CEO. "We look forward to welcoming the customers, teammates, and communities of CVB to the C&F family.

"I would like to personally thank our CVB shareholders for their support of this combination," said Herbert E. Marth, Jr., CVB's President and CEO. "This marks a very positive transition for what has been a difficult past few years for CVB employees and shareholders.
