First Capital Bancorp, Inc. Reports Net Income Of $1.1 Million For The Third Quarter 2013 Net Income Of $.07 Per Diluted Share Outstanding

GLEN ALLEN, Va., Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Capital Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:FCVA) parent company to First Capital Bank (the "Bank") reported today its financial results for the third quarter of 2013. For the three months ended September 30, 2013, the Company had net income of $1.1 million compared to $828 thousand for the same period in 2012, an increase of $249 thousand or 30.07%. Net income available to common shareholders was $991 thousand or $.07 per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $743 thousand or $.06 per diluted share for the same period in 2012, an increase of $248 thousand or 33.38%.

Earnings

Net interest income improved to $4.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to $4.2 million in the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $358 thousand or 8.55%. The net interest margin for the third quarter of 2013 was 3.65% compared to 3.54% in the third quarter of 2012, an 11 basis point improvement year over year and a 4 basis point improvement over the 3.61% net interest margin reported in the second quarter of 2013.

Recoveries during the quarter ended September 30, 2013, resulting from previously charged off loans, provided an increase in the allowance for loan losses such that a provision was not needed. The allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2013, increased to $8.6 million or 2.06% of total loans from $7.2 million or 1.97% of total loans at September 30, 2012, and from $7.3 million or 1.93% of total loans at December 31, 2012.

Noninterest income was $459 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to $621 thousand in the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of $162 thousand or 26.09%, driven by the decrease in gain on sale of mortgage loans to $142 thousand in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $253 thousand in the third quarter of 2012, and a decrease on gains on the sale of securities of a loss of $7 thousand compared to a gain of $53 thousand for the third quarter of 2012.

Total noninterest expense was $3.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to $3.4 million in the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $51 thousand or 1.48%. Salaries and employee benefits increased $276 thousand or 14.78% to $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $1.9 million in the third quarter of 2012. This increase was primarily due to incentive accruals in 2013 that did not exist in 2012. This increase was offset by decreases in FDIC assessments and gains on the sale of Other Real Estate Owned.

First Capital Bancorp, Inc. Chief Executive Officer, John Presley commented: "The Board of Directors and management are pleased with the results for both the third quarter and for the first nine months of 2013. Earnings are strong, credit quality metrics are solid, and the growth in core deposits and loans have us well positioned for the rest of the year."

Growth

At September 30, 2013, total assets were $536.7 million compared to $529.5 million at September 30, 2012, a $7.2 million or 1.37% increase.

Gross loans, excluding loans held for sale, at September 30, 2013, were $417.2 million compared to $366.6 million at September 30, 2012, a $50.6 million or 13.82% increase year over year. The increase in loan balances was due primarily to increased production resulting largely from a new lending team member hired in the middle of 2012 and an increase in demand from our customers.

Investment securities at September 30, 2013, were $82.8 million compared to $93.1 million at September 30, 2012, a decrease of $10.3 million or 11.01%. To fund the increased loan demand, some higher risk rated bonds were sold and cash flows generated from the investment portfolio were redirected to meet this demand.

Total deposits at the end of the third quarter of 2013 decreased $434 thousand or 0.10% to $446.9 million compared to $447.3 million at September 30, 2012; however, noninterest bearing deposits increased $10.9 million or 21.25% to $62.4 million from $51.5 million at September 30, 2012.

The decrease in the bond portfolio and increase in noninterest bearing deposits contributed to the favorable rise in net interest margin during the third quarter of 2013.

First Capital Bank President and CEO, Bob Watts stated, "We are very pleased with the performance of our team as they attract new relationships, expand and enhance existing relationships and overall grow the Bank. It is gratifying to see the demand for the products and customer service a community bank such as ours can provide. We continue to embrace helping more customers in Central Virginia get to work."

Asset Quality

The allowance for loan losses was $8.6 million or 2.06% of total loans at September 30, 2013, compared to $7.2 million or 1.97% of total loans at September 30, 2012. The increase in the allowance for loan losses was primarily a result of recoveries of amounts previously charged off.  We believe that the growth in the level of the allowance for loan losses is reasonable in light of our loan growth and the uncertainty that remains in the economy.

Delinquencies, categorized as loans past due 30-89 days, continue to show improvement as well, reported at $665 thousand, or 0.16% of gross loans, at the end of the third quarter of 2013, down from $1.7 million, or 0.47% of gross loans, at the end of the same period last year.
