Southern National Bancorp Of Virginia Inc. Announces Signing Of A Definitive Agreement To Acquire Prince George's Federal Savings Bank Which Is To Be Merged Into Its Subsidiary, Sonabank

MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Southern National Bancorp of Virginia, Inc. (Nasdaq:SONA) ("Southern National"), the holding company of Sonabank, and Prince George's Federal Savings Bank ("Prince George's FSB") jointly announced today the signing of a definitive merger agreement, under which Southern National has agreed to acquire Prince George's FSB in a cash and stock transaction with a total current value of approximately $11.5 million or $12.75 per share, subject to the terms of the definitive merger agreement.

Upon completion of the transaction, the combined company will have approximately $805 million in total assets, $700 million in total deposits, and $600 million in total loans. The transaction will add four new banking locations for Sonabank within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan statistical area, two in Prince George's County, Maryland and two in Calvert County, Maryland.  This will give Sonabank a total of 24 locations, 20 of which, with over $500 million in deposits, will be in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan statistical area.  The merger agreement has been approved by the Board of Directors of each company.  Closing of the transaction, which is expected to occur late in the second quarter of 2014, is subject to customary conditions, including regulatory approval and approval by the shareholders of Prince George's FSB. 

Per the merger agreement, 50% of the consideration will be paid in cash and 50% will be in newly-issued shares of Southern National common stock, based on an election by the shareholders of Prince George's FSB and subject to proration.  The exchange ratio for the stock component of the transaction will be determined by dividing $12.75 by Southern National's weighted average stock price during a twenty trading day period ending five business days before the closing of the transaction.

Prince George's FSB was founded in 1931 and is headquartered in Upper Marlboro, which is the County Seat of Prince George's County, Maryland. Prince George's FSB has four offices, all of which are in Maryland, including a main office in Upper Marlboro and three branch offices in Dunkirk, Brandywine and Huntingtown. Prince George's FSB has an excellent core deposit base reflecting its tenure in the communities it serves, and its lending activities have historically been focused on residential mortgages.
