EASTERN VIRGINIA BANKSHARES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements

(unaudited)

 

Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Eastern Virginia Bankshares, Inc. (the “Company”) and its subsidiaries, EVB Statutory Trust I (the “Trust”), which is unconsolidated, and EVB (the “Bank”) and its subsidiaries, are in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, these financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2016. These interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 (the “2015 Form 10-K”).

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, the Bank and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. In addition, the Company owns the Trust which is an unconsolidated subsidiary. The subordinated debt owed to the Trust is reported as a liability of the Company.

 

Nature of Operations

 

Eastern Virginia Bankshares, Inc. is a bank holding company headquartered in Tappahannock, Virginia that was organized and chartered under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia on September 5, 1997 and commenced operations on December 29, 1997. The Company conducts its primary operations through its wholly-owned bank subsidiary, EVB. Two of EVB’s three predecessor banks, Bank of Northumberland, Inc. and Southside Bank, were established in 1910. The third bank, Hanover Bank, was established as a de novo bank in 2000. In April 2006, these three banks were merged and the surviving bank was re-branded as EVB. Additionally, the Company acquired Virginia Company Bank (“VCB”) (see Note 2 – Business Combinations) on November 14, 2014 and merged VCB with and into the Bank, with the Bank surviving, thus adding three additional branches to the Bank located in Newport News, Williamsburg, and Hampton, respectively. The Bank provides a full range of banking and related financial services to individuals and businesses through its network of retail branches. With twenty-four retail branches, the Bank serves diverse markets that primarily are in the counties of Essex, Gloucester, Hanover, Henrico, King and Queen, King William, Lancaster, Middlesex, New Kent, Northumberland, Southampton, Surry, Sussex and the cities of Colonial Heights, Hampton, Newport News, Richmond and Williamsburg. The Bank also operates a loan production office in Chesterfield County, Virginia, that the Bank opened during the second quarter of 2014. The Bank operates under a state bank charter and as such is subject to regulation by the Virginia State Corporation Commission Bureau of Financial Institutions (the “Bureau”) and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “Federal Reserve Board”).

 

The Bank owns EVB Financial Services, Inc., which in turn has a 100% ownership interest in EVB Investments, Inc. EVB Investments, Inc. is a full-service brokerage firm offering a comprehensive range of investment services. On May 15, 2014, the Bank acquired a 4.9% ownership interest in Southern Trust Mortgage, LLC. Pursuant to an independent contractor agreement with Southern Trust Mortgage, LLC, the Company advises and consults with Southern Trust Mortgage, LLC and facilitates the marketing and brand recognition of their mortgage business. In addition, the Company provides Southern Trust Mortgage, LLC with offices at three retail branches in the Company’s market area and access to office equipment at these locations during normal business hours. For its services, the Company receives fixed monthly compensation from Southern Trust Mortgage, LLC in the amount of $2 thousand, which is adjustable on a quarterly basis.

 

The Bank had a 75% ownership interest in EVB Title, LLC, which primarily sold title insurance to the mortgage loan customers of the Bank and EVB Mortgage, LLC. Effective January 2014, the Bank ceased operations of EVB Title, LLC due to low volume and profitability. On October 1, 2014, the Bank acquired a 6.0% ownership interest in Bankers Title, LLC. Bankers Title, LLC is a multi-bank owned title agency providing a full range of title insurance settlement and related financial services. The Bank has a 2.87% ownership interest in Bankers Insurance, LLC, which primarily sells insurance products to customers of the Bank, and other financial institutions that have an equity interest in the agency. The Bank also has a 100% ownership interest in Dunston Hall LLC, POS LLC, Tartan Holdings LLC and ECU-RE LLC which were formed to hold the title to real estate acquired by the Bank upon foreclosure on property of real estate secured loans. The financial position and operating results of all of these subsidiaries are not significant to the Company as a whole and are not considered principal activities of the Company at this time. The Company’s common stock trades on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol “EVBS.”

Basis of Presentation

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Material estimates that are particularly susceptible to significant change in the near term relate to the determination of the allowance for loan losses, impairment of loans, impairment of securities, the valuation of other real estate owned (or “OREO”), the projected benefit obligation under the defined benefit pension plan, the valuation of deferred taxes, goodwill impairment and fair value of financial instruments. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, which are necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations in these interim financial statements, have been made. Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the 2016 presentation. These reclassifications have no effect on previously reported net income.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-15, “Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40): Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern.” This update is intended to provide guidance about management’s responsibility to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern and to provide related footnote disclosures. Management is required under the new guidance to evaluate whether there are conditions or events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt about the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date the financial statements are issued when preparing financial statements for each interim and annual reporting period. If conditions or events are identified, the ASU specifies the process that must be followed by management and also clarifies the timing and content of going concern footnote disclosures in order to reduce diversity in practice. The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual periods and interim periods within those annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2014-15 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01, “Financial Instruments – Overall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities.” The amendments in ASU 2016-01, among other things: 1) require equity investments (except those accounted for under the equity method of accounting, or those that result in consolidation of the investee) to be measured at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income; 2) require public business entities to use the exit price notion when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purposes; 3) require separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by measurement category and form of financial asset (i.e., securities or loans and receivables); and 4) eliminate the requirement for public business entities to disclose the method(s) and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost. The amendments in this ASU are effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently assessing the impact that ASU 2016-01 will have on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842).” Among other things, in the amendments in ASU 2016-02, lessees will be required to recognize the following for all leases (with the exception of short-term leases) at the commencement date: 1) a lease liability, which is a lessee‘s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease, measured on a discounted basis; and 2) a right-of-use asset, which is an asset that represents the lessee’s right to use, or control the use of, a specified asset for the lease term. Under the new guidance, lessor accounting is largely unchanged. Certain targeted improvements were made to align, where necessary, lessor accounting with the lessee accounting model and Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. Lessees (for capital and operating leases) and lessors (for sales-type, direct financing, and operating leases) must apply a modified retrospective transition approach for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements. The modified retrospective approach would not require any transition accounting for leases that expired before the earliest comparative period presented. Lessees and lessors may not apply a full retrospective transition approach. The Company is currently assessing the impact that ASU 2016-02 will have on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-07, “Investments – Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323): Simplifying the Transition to the Equity Method of Accounting.” The amendments in this ASU eliminate the requirement that when an investment qualifies for use of the equity method as a result of an increase in the level of ownership interest or degree of influence, an investor must adjust the investment, results of operations, and retained earnings retroactively on a step-by-step basis as if the equity method had been in effect during all previous periods that the investment had been held. The amendments require that the equity method investor add the cost of acquiring the additional interest in the investee to the current basis of the investor’s previously held interest and adopt the equity method of accounting as of the date the investment becomes qualified for equity method accounting. Therefore, upon qualifying for the equity method of accounting, no retroactive adjustment of the investment is required. In addition, the amendments in this ASU require that an entity that has an available-for-sale equity security that becomes qualified for the equity method of accounting recognize through earnings the unrealized holding gain or loss in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) at the date the investment becomes qualified for use of the equity method. The amendments are effective for all entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2016. The amendments should be applied prospectively upon their effective date to increases in the level of ownership interest or degree of influence that result in the adoption of the equity method. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2016-07 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

During March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, “Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Shares-Based Payment Accounting.” The amendments in this ASU simplify several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment award transactions including: a) income tax consequences; b) classification of awards as either equity or liabilities; and c) classification on the statement of cash flows. The amendments are effective for public companies for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those annual periods. The Company is currently assessing the impact that ASU 2016-09 will have on its consolidated financial statements.

 

Note 2. Business Combinations

 

On November 14, 2014, the Company completed its acquisition of VCB. Pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Reorganization dated May 29, 2014, VCB's common shareholders received for each share of VCB common stock they owned either (i) cash at a rate of $6.25 per share of VCB common stock, or approximately $2.4 million in the aggregate, or (ii) the Company’s common stock at a rate of 0.9259 shares of the Company’s common stock per share of VCB common stock, which totaled approximately $6.7 million based on the Company’s closing common stock price on November 14, 2014 of $6.27 per share. In addition, the Company purchased VCB’s Series A Preferred Stock for $4.3 million. VCB was established in 2005 and was headquartered in Newport News, Virginia. VCB operated three branches, one each in Hampton, Newport News and Williamsburg, Virginia. Additional information regarding this acquisition is included in the Company’s 2015 Form 10-K.

 

The net effect of the amortization and accretion of premiums and discounts associated with the Company’s acquisition accounting adjustments to assets acquired and liabilities assumed from VCB had the following impact on the consolidated statements of income during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015:

There were no investment securities classified as “Trading” at March 31, 2016 or December 31, 2015. During the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company transferred investment securities with an amortized cost of $35.5 million, previously designated as “Available for Sale”, to “Held to Maturity” classification. The fair value of those investment securities as of the date of the transfer was $34.5 million, reflecting a gross unrealized loss of $994 thousand. The gross unrealized loss, net of tax at the time of transfer remained in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) and is being accreted over the remaining life of the investment securities as an adjustment to interest income.

 

At March 31, 2016, the Company’s mortgage-backed investment securities consisted of commercial and residential mortgage-backed investment securities. The Company’s mortgage-backed investment securities are all backed by an Agency of the U.S. government and rated Aaa and AA+ by Moody and S&P, respectively, with no subprime issues.

The Company reviews the investment securities portfolio on a quarterly basis to monitor its exposure to other-than-temporary impairment that may result due to adverse economic conditions and associated credit deterioration. A determination as to whether an investment security’s decline in market value is other-than-temporary takes into consideration numerous factors and the relative significance of any single factor can vary by security. Some factors the Company may consider in the other-than-temporary impairment analysis include the length of time the security has been in an unrealized loss position, changes in security ratings, financial condition of the issuer, as well as security and industry specific economic conditions. In addition, the Company may also evaluate payment structure, whether there are defaulted payments or expected defaults, prepayment speeds, and the value of any underlying collateral. For certain investment securities in unrealized loss positions, the Company will enlist independent third-party firms to prepare cash flow analyses to compare the present value of cash flows expected to be collected from the investment security with the amortized cost basis of the investment security.

 

Based on the Company’s evaluation, management does not believe any unrealized losses at March 31, 2016, represent an other-than-temporary impairment as these unrealized losses are primarily attributable to current financial market conditions for these types of investments, particularly changes in interest rates, and are not attributable to credit deterioration. Interest rates have generally declined since December 31, 2015, thereby reducing the amount of unrealized losses present at that time. At March 31, 2016, there were 82 debt investment securities with fair values totaling $100.8 million considered temporarily impaired. Of these debt investment securities, 30 with fair values totaling $36.1 million were in an unrealized loss position of less than 12 months and 52 with fair values totaling $64.7 million were in an unrealized loss position of 12 months or more. Because the Company intends to hold these investments in debt securities until recovery of the amortized cost basis and it is more likely than not that the Company will not be required to sell these investments before a recovery of unrealized losses, the Company does not consider these investments to be other-than-temporarily impaired at March 31, 2016 and no impairment has been recognized. At March 31, 2016, there were no equity securities in an unrealized loss position.

 

Investment securities in an unrealized loss position at December 31, 2015, by duration of the period of the unrealized loss, are shown below:

The Company’s investment in Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta (“FHLB”) stock totaled $6.0 million and $5.9 million at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively. FHLB stock is generally viewed as a long-term investment and as a restricted investment security, which is carried at cost, because there is no market for the stock other than the FHLBs or member institutions. Therefore, when evaluating FHLB stock for impairment, its value is based on the ultimate recoverability of the par value rather than by recognizing temporary declines in value. Because the FHLB generated positive net income for each quarterly period beginning April 1, 2015, and ending March 31, 2016, the Company does not consider this investment to be other-than-temporarily impaired at March 31, 2016 and no impairment has been recognized. FHLB stock is included in a separate line item on the consolidated balance sheets (Restricted securities, at cost) and is not part of the Company’s investment securities portfolio. The Company’s restricted securities also include investments in the Reserve Bank and Community Bankers Bank, which are carried at cost.

(dollars in thousands)  March 31, 2016   December 31, 2015 
Nonaccrual loans  $6,616   $6,175 
Loans past due 90 days and accruing interest   1,127    1,117 
Troubled debt restructurings (accruing)   15,158    15,535 

 

At March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, there were approximately $1.2 million and $1.3 million, respectively, in troubled debt restructurings (“TDRs”) included in nonaccrual loans.

 

The past due status of a loan is based on the contractual due date of the most delinquent payment due. Loans, including impaired loans, are generally classified as nonaccrual if they are past due as to maturity or payment of principal or interest for a period of more than 90 days, unless such loans are well-secured and in the process of collection. Loans greater than 90 days past due may remain on an accrual status if management determines it has adequate collateral to cover the principal and interest. If a loan or a portion of a loan is adversely classified, or is partially charged off, the loan is generally classified as nonaccrual. Additionally, whenever management becomes aware of facts or circumstances that may adversely impact the collectability of principal or interest on loans, it is management’s practice to place such loans on a nonaccrual status immediately, rather than delaying such action until the loans become 90 days past due.

 

When a loan is placed on nonaccrual status, previously accrued and uncollected interest is reversed, and the amortization of related deferred loan fees or costs is suspended. While a loan is classified as nonaccrual and the future collectability of the recorded loan balance is doubtful, collections of interest and principal are generally applied as a reduction to principal outstanding. When the future collectability of the recorded loan balance is expected, interest income may be recognized on a cash basis. In the case where a nonaccrual loan has been partially charged off, recognition of interest on a cash basis is limited to that which would have been recognized on the recorded loan balance at the contractual interest rate. Cash interest receipts in excess of that amount are recorded as recoveries to the allowance for loan losses until prior charge-offs have been fully recovered. These policies are applied consistently across our loan portfolio.

 

A loan (including a TDR) may be returned to accrual status if the borrower has demonstrated a sustained period of repayment performance (typically six months) in accordance with the contractual terms of the loan and there is reasonable assurance the borrower will continue to make payments as agreed.

The Company uses a risk grading system for real estate (including multifamily residential, construction, farmland and non-farm, non-residential) and commercial loans. Loans are graded on a scale from 1 to 9. Non-impaired real estate and commercial loans are assigned an allowance factor which increases with the severity of risk grading. A general description of the characteristics of the risk grades is as follows:

 

Pass Grades

·Risk Grade 1 loans have little or no risk and are generally secured by cash or cash equivalents;
·Risk Grade 2 loans have minimal risk to well qualified borrowers and no significant questions as to safety;
·Risk Grade 3 loans are satisfactory loans with strong borrowers and secondary sources of repayment;
·Risk Grade 4 loans are satisfactory loans with borrowers not as strong as risk grade 3 loans but may exhibit a higher degree of financial risk based on the type of business supporting the loan; and
·Risk Grade 5 loans are loans that warrant more than the normal level of supervision and have the possibility of an event occurring that may weaken the borrower’s ability to repay.

 

Special Mention

·Risk Grade 6 loans have increasing potential weaknesses beyond those at which the loan originally was granted and if not addressed could lead to inadequately protecting the Company’s credit position.

 

Classified Grades

·Risk Grade 7 loans are substandard loans and are inadequately protected by the current sound worth or paying capacity of the obligor or the collateral pledged. These have well defined weaknesses that jeopardize the liquidation of the debt with the distinct possibility the Company will sustain some loss if the deficiencies are not corrected;
·Risk Grade 8 loans are doubtful of collection and the possibility of loss is high but pending specific borrower plans for recovery, its classification as a loss is deferred until its more exact status is determined; and
·Risk Grade 9 loans are loss loans which are considered uncollectable and of such little value that their continuance as a bank asset is not warranted.

 

The Company uses a past due grading system for consumer loans, including one to four family residential first and seconds and home equity lines. The past due status of a loan is based on the contractual due date of the most delinquent payment due. The past due grading of consumer loans is based on the following categories: current, 1-29 days past due, 30-59 days past due, 60-89 days past due and over 90 days past due. The consumer loans are segregated between performing and nonperforming loans. Performing loans are those that have made timely payments in accordance with the terms of the loan agreement and are not past due 90 days or more. Nonperforming loans are those that do not accrue interest, or are greater than 90 days past due and accruing interest. Non-impaired consumer loans are assigned an allowance factor which increases with the severity of past due status. This component of the allowance reflects the margin of imprecision inherent in the underlying assumptions used in the methodologies for estimating specific and general losses in the loan portfolio.

 

The allocation methodology applied by the Company includes management’s ongoing review and grading of the loan portfolio into criticized loan categories (defined as specific loans warranting either specific allocation, or a classified status of substandard, doubtful or loss). The allocation methodology focuses on evaluation of several factors, including but not limited to: evaluation of facts and issues related to specific loans, management’s ongoing review and grading of the loan portfolio, consideration of migration analysis tracking movement of loans through past due classifications and delinquency experience on each portfolio category, trends in past due and nonaccrual loans, the level of classified loans, the risk characteristics of the various classifications of loans, changes in the size and character of the loan portfolio, concentrations of loans to specific borrowers or industries, existing economic conditions, the fair value of underlying collateral, and other qualitative and quantitative factors which could affect potential credit losses. Because each of the criteria used is subject to change, the allocation of the allowance for loan losses is made for analytical purposes and is not necessarily indicative of the trend of future loan losses in any particular loan category. The total allowance is available to absorb losses from any segment of the portfolio. In determining the allowance for loan losses, the Company considers its portfolio segments and loan classes to be the same.

A loan is considered impaired when, based on current information and events, it is probable that the Company will be unable to collect the scheduled payments of principal or interest when due, according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement. The Company measures impaired loans based on the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the effective interest rate of the loan or, as a practical expedient, at the loan’s observable market price or the fair value of the collateral if the loan is collateral dependent. The Company maintains a valuation allowance to the extent that the measure of the impaired loan is less than the recorded investment. TDRs are considered impaired loans. TDRs occur when we agree to modify the original terms of a loan by granting a concession due to the deterioration in the financial condition of the borrower. These concessions can be temporary and are made in an attempt to avoid foreclosure and with the intent to restore the loan to a performing status once sufficient payment history can be demonstrated. These concessions could include, without limitation, rate reductions to below market rates, payment deferrals, forbearance, and, in some cases, forgiveness of principal or interest.

 

At the time of a TDR, the loan is placed on nonaccrual status. A loan (including a TDR) may be returned to accrual status if the borrower has demonstrated a sustained period of repayment performance (typically six months) in accordance with the contractual terms of the loan and there is reasonable assurance the borrower will continue to make payments as agreed.

Determining the fair value of purchased credit-impaired (“PCI”) loans required the Company to estimate cash flows expected to result from those loans and to discount those cash flows at appropriate rates of interest. For such loans, the excess of the cash flows expected at acquisition over the estimated fair value is recognized as interest income over the remaining lives of the loans and is called the accretable yield. The difference between contractually required payments at acquisition and the cash flows expected to be collected at acquisition is the nonaccretable difference and is not recorded. In accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company did not “carry over” any allowances for loan losses that were reserved for the VCB loan portfolio prior to the Company’s acquisition of VCB. PCI loans had unpaid principal balances of $8.7 million and $8.8 million and recorded carrying values of $7.8 million and $7.9 million at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively.

*The period end balances are inclusive of all partial paydowns and charge-offs since the modification date. Loans modified as TDRs that were fully paid down, charged-off, or foreclosed upon by period end are not reported.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, there were no defaults (i.e., 90 days or more past due) on loans modified as TDRs within the prior 12 months. At March 31, 2016, $761 thousand in foreclosed residential real estate properties were included in OREO, and $2.4 million in residential real estate loans were in the process of foreclosure.

 

Note 5. Deferred Income Taxes

 

As of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company had recorded net deferred income tax assets of approximately $13.0 million and $15.1 million, respectively. The realization of deferred income tax assets is assessed quarterly and a valuation allowance is recorded if it is “more likely than not” that all or a portion of the deferred tax asset will not be realized. “More likely than not” is defined as greater than a 50% chance. Management considers all available evidence, both positive and negative, to determine whether, based on the weight of that evidence, a valuation allowance is needed.  Management’s assessment is primarily dependent on historical taxable income and projections of future taxable income, which are directly related to the Company’s core earnings capacity and its prospects to generate core earnings in the future.  Projections of core earnings and taxable income are inherently subject to uncertainty and estimates that may change given the uncertain economic outlook, banking industry conditions and other factors. Further, management has considered future reversals of existing taxable temporary differences and limited, prudent and feasible tax-planning strategies, such as changes in investment security income (tax-exempt to taxable), additional sales of loans and sales of branches/buildings with an appreciated asset value over the tax basis. Based upon an analysis of available evidence, management has determined that it is “more likely than not” that the Company’s deferred income tax assets as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 will be fully realized and therefore no valuation allowance to the Company’s deferred income tax assets was recorded. However, the Company can give no assurance that in the future its deferred income tax assets will not be impaired because such determination is based on projections of future earnings and the possible effect of certain transactions which are subject to uncertainty and based on estimates that may change due to changing economic conditions and other factors.  Due to the uncertainty of estimates and projections, it is possible that the Company will be required to record adjustments to the valuation allowance in future reporting periods.

 

The Company’s ability to realize its deferred income tax assets may be limited if the Company experiences an ownership change as defined by Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”). For additional information see Part I, Item 1A. “Risk Factors” included in the Company’s 2015 Form 10-K.

Note 6. Bank Premises and Equipment

 

Bank premises and equipment are summarized as follows:

 

(dollars in thousands)  March 31, 2016   December 31, 2015 
Land and improvements  $6,837   $6,837 
Buildings and leasehold improvements   28,715    28,487

Less accumulated depreciation   (29,566)   (29,009)
Net balance  $27,773   $27,836 

 

Depreciation and amortization of bank premises and equipment for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 amounted to $633 thousand and $631 thousand, respectively.

 

Note 7. Borrowings

 

Federal funds purchased and repurchase agreements. The Company has unsecured lines of credit with SunTrust Bank, Community Bankers Bank and Pacific Coast Bankers Bank for the purchase of federal funds in the amount of $20.0 million, $15.0 million and $5.0 million, respectively. These lines of credit have a variable rate based on the lending bank’s daily federal funds sold rate and are due on demand. Repurchase agreements are secured transactions and generally mature the day following the day sold. Customer repurchases are standard transactions that involve a Bank customer instead of a wholesale bank or broker. The Company offers this product as an accommodation to larger retail and commercial customers that request safety for their funds beyond the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) deposit insurance limits. The Company does not use or have any open repurchase agreements with broker-dealers.

 

The tables below present selected information on federal funds purchased and repurchase agreements during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and the year ended December 31, 2015:

Weighted average rate for the period   0.47%   0.57%
Weighted average rate at period end   0.47%   0.47%

 

Short-term borrowings. Short-term borrowings consist of advances from the FHLB, which are secured by a blanket floating lien on all qualifying closed-end and revolving open-end loans that are secured by one to four family residential properties. Short-term advances from the FHLB at March 31, 2016 consisted of $12.0 million using a daily rate credit, which is due on demand, and $102.6 million in fixed rate one month advances. Short-term advances from the FHLB at December 31, 2015 consisted of $114.4 million in fixed rate one month advances. Outstanding accrued interest at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 totaled $37 thousand and $14 thousand, respectively.

The table below presents selected information on short-term borrowings during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and the year ended December 31, 2015:

 

Short-term borrowings        
(dollars in thousands)  March 31, 2016   December 31, 2015 
Balance outstanding at period end  $114,560   $114,413

Weighted average rate for the period   0.43%   0.22%
Weighted average rate at period end   0.45%   0.32%

 

Long-term borrowings. From time to time, the Company may obtain long-term borrowings from the FHLB, which consist of advances from the FHLB that are secured by a blanket floating lien on all qualifying closed-end and revolving open-end loans that are secured by one to four family residential properties. At March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company had no long-term FHLB advances outstanding.

 

The Company’s line of credit with the FHLB can equal up to 30% of the Company’s gross assets or approximately $380.9 million at March 31, 2016. This line of credit totaled $227.0 million with approximately $112.5 million available at March 31, 2016. As of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, loans with a carrying value of $304.3 million and $307.2 million, respectively, are pledged to the FHLB as collateral for borrowings. Additional loans are available that can be pledged as collateral for future borrowings from the FHLB above the current lendable collateral value.

 

Note 8. Net Income Per Common Share

 

The Company applies the two-class method of computing basic and diluted net income per common share.  Under the two-class method, net income per common share is determined for each class of common stock and participating security according to dividends declared and participation rights in undistributed earnings.  Based on FASB guidance, the Company considers its Series B Preferred Stock (defined below) to be a participating security. FASB guidance requires that all outstanding unvested share-based payment awards that contain voting rights and rights to nonforfeitable dividends participate in undistributed earnings with common shareholders.  Accordingly, the weighted average number of shares of the Company’s common stock used in the calculation of basic and diluted net income per common share includes unvested shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding.

 

The following table shows the computation of basic and diluted net income per common share for the periods presented: 

 

   Three Months Ended 
(dollars in thousands, except share and per share amounts)  March 31, 2016   March 31, 2015 
Basic Net Income Per Common Share          
Net income available to common shareholders  $2,227   $1,389 
Less: Net income allocated to participating securities, Series B Preferred Stock   639    400 
Net income allocated to common shareholders  $1,588   $989 
Weighted average common shares outstanding for basic net income per common share   13,035,249    12,985,429 
Basic net income per common share  $0.12   $0.08 
           
Diluted Net Income Per Common Share          
Net income available to common shareholders  $2,227   $1,389 
Weighted average common shares outstanding for basic net income per common share   13,035,249    12,985,429 
Effect of dilutive securities, stock options   -    - 
Effect of dilutive securities, Series B Preferred Stock   5,240,192    5,240,192 
Weighted average common shares outstanding for diluted net income per common share   18,275,441    18,225,621 
Diluted net income per common share  $0.12   $0.08 

 

At March 31, 2016 and 2015, options to acquire 67,525 and 103,887 shares of common stock, respectively, were not included in computing diluted net income per common share for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 because their effects were anti-dilutive.

 

 26 

 

  

On June 12, 2013, the Company issued 5,240,192 shares of non-voting mandatorily convertible non-cumulative preferred stock, Series B (the “Series B Preferred Stock”) through private placements to certain investors. Each share of Series B Preferred Stock can, under certain limited circumstances as set forth in the Company’s articles of incorporation, be converted into one share of the Company’s common stock, and is therefore reflected in the dilutive weighted average common shares outstanding. For more information related to the conversion rights of these preferred shares, see Note 12 – Preferred Stock and Warrant.

 

Additionally, the impact of warrants to acquire shares of the Company’s common stock that were issued to the U.S. Department of the Treasury (“Treasury”) in connection with the Company’s participation in the Capital Purchase Program is not included, as the warrants were anti-dilutive. As previously disclosed, these warrants were repurchased by the Company during May 2015. For additional information on preferred stock warrants, see Note 12 – Preferred Stock and Warrant.

 

The Company identified and corrected an immaterial error affecting the calculation of basic net income per common share for certain periods prior to the second quarter of 2015.  Previously, the Company did not consider the Series B Preferred Stock as a participating security when calculating basic net income per common share.  The Company has corrected basic net income per common share for historical periods as such measures were disclosed in subsequent public reports, filings and statements.  This immaterial error had no impact on previously reported diluted net income per common share for any historical periods.

 

Note 9. Stock Based Compensation Plans

 

On September 21, 2000, the Company adopted the Eastern Virginia Bankshares, Inc. 2000 Stock Option Plan (the “2000 Plan”) to provide a means for selected key employees and directors to increase their personal financial interest in the Company, thereby stimulating their efforts and strengthening their desire to remain with the Company. Under the 2000 Plan, up to 400,000 shares of Company common stock could be granted in the form of stock options. On April 17, 2003, the shareholders approved the Eastern Virginia Bankshares, Inc. 2003 Stock Incentive Plan, amending and restating the 2000 Plan (the “2003 Plan”) and still authorizing the issuance of up to 400,000 shares of common stock under the plan, but expanding the award types available under the plan to include stock options, stock appreciation rights, common stock, restricted stock and phantom stock. Under the terms of the 2003 Plan, after April 17, 2013 no additional awards may be granted under the 2003 Plan. Any awards previously granted under the 2003 Plan that were outstanding as of April 17, 2013 remain outstanding and will vest in accordance with their regular terms.

 

On April 19, 2007, the Company’s shareholders approved the Eastern Virginia Bankshares, Inc. 2007 Equity Compensation Plan (the “2007 Plan”) to enhance the Company’s ability to recruit and retain officers, directors, employees, consultants and advisors with ability and initiative and to encourage such persons to have a greater financial interest in the Company. The 2007 Plan authorizes the Company to issue up to 400,000 additional shares of common stock pursuant to grants of stock options, stock appreciation rights, common stock, restricted stock, performance shares, incentive awards and stock units. There were 162,057 shares still available to be granted as awards under the 2007 Plan as of March 31, 2016.

 

Accounting standards require companies to recognize the cost of employee services received in exchange for awards of equity instruments, such as stock options, based on the fair value of those awards at the date of grant.

 

Accounting standards also require that new awards to employees eligible for accelerated vesting at retirement prior to the awards becoming fully vested be recognized as compensation cost over the period through the date that the employee first becomes eligible to retire and is no longer required to provide service to earn the award.

 

Stock option compensation expense is the estimated fair value of options granted, amortized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for each stock option award. There were no stock options granted or exercised in the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015. There was no remaining unrecognized compensation expense related to stock options at March 31, 2016, and there was no stock option compensation expense for three months ended March 31, 2016 or 2015.

 

A summary of the Company’s stock option activity and related information is as follows:

 

           Remaining   Aggregate 
   Options   Weighted Average   Contractual Life   Intrinsic Value* 
   Outstanding   Exercise Price   (in years)   (in thousands) 
Stock options outstanding at December 31, 2015   67,525   $18.12           
Stock options outstanding at March 31, 2016   67,525   $18.12    1.36   $- 
                     
Stock options exercisable at March 31, 2016   67,525   $18.12    1.36   $- 

 

*Intrinsic value is the amount by which the fair value of the underlying common stock exceeds the exercise price of a stock option on exercise date.

On March 24, 2016, the Company granted 65,000 shares of restricted stock under the 2007 Plan to its executive officers. Fifty percent (50%) of the shares are subject to time vesting in five equal annual installments beginning on March 31, 2017.  The remaining fifty percent (50%) of the shares are subject to performance vesting and will vest on March 31, 2019 to the extent certain financial performance requirements for fiscal year 2018 are met. On March 19, 2015, the Company granted 45,000 shares of restricted stock under the 2007 Plan to its executive officers. Fifty percent (50%) of the shares are subject to time vesting in five equal annual installments beginning on March 31, 2016.  The remaining fifty percent (50%) of the shares are subject to performance vesting and will vest on March 31, 2018 to the extent certain financial performance requirements for fiscal year 2017 are met. On October 15, 2014, the Company granted 42,500 shares of restricted stock under the 2007 Plan to its executive officers.  Fifty percent (50%) of the shares are subject to time vesting in five equal annual installments beginning on March 31, 2015.  The remaining fifty percent (50%) of the shares are subject to performance vesting and will vest on March 31, 2017 to the extent certain financial performance requirements for fiscal year 2016 are met.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, restricted stock compensation expense was $61 thousand compared to restricted stock compensation expense of $52 thousand for the same period in 2015, and was included in salaries and employee benefits expense in the consolidated statements of income. Restricted stock compensation expense is accounted for using the fair value of the Company’s common stock on the date the restricted shares were awarded, which was $6.80 per share for the March 24, 2016 awards, $6.28 per share for the March 19, 2015 awards and $6.10 per share for the October 15, 2014 awards.

 

A summary of the status of the Company’s nonvested shares in relation to the Company’s restricted stock awards as of March 31, 2016, and changes during the three months ended March 31, 2016, is presented below; the weighted average price is the weighted average fair value at the date of grant:

 

       Weighted-Average 
   Shares   Price 
Nonvested as of  December 31, 2015   121,271   $6.01 
Granted   65,000    6.80 
Vested   (8,750)   6.19 
Nonvested as of  March 31, 2016   177,521   $6.29 

 

At March 31, 2016, there was $874 thousand of total unrecognized compensation expense related to restricted stock awards. This unearned compensation is being amortized over the remaining vesting period for the time and performance based shares.

Note 10. Employee Benefit Plan – Pension

 

The Company has historically maintained a defined benefit pension plan covering substantially all of the Company’s employees. The plan was amended January 28, 2008 to freeze the plan with no additional contributions for a majority of participants. Employees age 55 or greater or with 10 years of credited service were grandfathered in the plan. No additional participants have been added to the plan. The plan was again amended February 28, 2011 to freeze the plan with no additional contributions for grandfathered participants. Benefits for all participants have remained frozen in the plan since such action was taken. Effective January 1, 2012, the plan was amended and restated as a cash balance plan. Under a cash balance plan, participant benefits are stated as an account balance. An opening account balance was established for each participant based on the lump sum value of his or her accrued benefit as of December 31, 2011 in the original defined benefit pension plan. Each participants’ account will be credited with an “interest” credit each year. The interest rate for each year is determined as the average annual interest rate on the 2 year U.S. Treasury securities for the month of December preceding the plan year. Components of net periodic pension benefit related to the Company’s pension plan were as follows for the periods indicated:

 

   Three Months Ended 
   March 31, 
(dollars in thousands)  2016   2015 
 Components of net periodic pension (benefit)          
 Interest cost  $98   $101 
 Expected return on plan assets   (158)   (178)
 Amortization of prior service cost   2    2 
 Recognized net actuarial loss   27    27 
 Net periodic pension (benefit)  $(31)  $(48)

 

The Company made no contributions to the pension plan during 2015. The Company has not determined at this time how much, if any, contributions to the plan will be made for the year ending December 31, 2016.

 

Note 11. Fair Value Measurements

 

Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. U.S. GAAP requires that valuation techniques maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. U.S. GAAP also establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the valuation inputs into three broad levels. Based on the underlying inputs, each fair value measurement in its entirety is reported in one of the three levels. These levels are:

 

*Level 1 – Valuation is based upon quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical instruments traded in active markets.

 

*Level 2 – Valuation is based upon quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

*Level 3 – Valuation is determined using model-based techniques with significant assumptions not observable in the market.

 

U.S. GAAP allows an entity the irrevocable option to elect fair value (the fair value option) for the initial and subsequent measurement for certain financial assets and liabilities on a contract-by-contract basis. The Company has not made any fair value option elections as of March 31, 2016.

 

Following is a description of the valuation methodologies used for instruments measured at fair value, as well as the general classification of such instruments pursuant to the valuation hierarchy.

 

Assets Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

 

Securities Available For Sale. Securities available for sale are recorded at fair value on a recurring basis. Fair value measurement is based upon quoted market prices, when available (Level 1). If quoted market prices are not available, fair values are measured utilizing independent valuation techniques of identical or similar securities for which significant assumptions are derived primarily from or corroborated by observable market data. Third party vendors compile prices from various sources and may determine the fair value of identical or similar securities by using pricing models that consider observable market data (Level 2). In certain cases where there is limited activity or less transparency around inputs to the valuation, securities are classified within Level 3 of the valuation hierarchy. Currently, all of the Company’s available for sale securities are considered to be Level 2 securities.

Assets Measured at Fair Value on a Non-Recurring Basis

 

Certain assets are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These adjustments to fair value usually result from the application of fair value accounting or impairment write-downs of individual assets.

 

Impaired Loans. Loans are designated as impaired when, in the judgment of management based on current information and events, it is probable that all amounts due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement will not be collected when due. The measurement of loss associated with impaired loans can be based on either the observable market price of the loan or the fair value of the collateral. Collateral may be in the form of real estate or business assets including equipment, inventory, and accounts receivable. The vast majority of the collateral is real estate. The value of real estate collateral is determined utilizing an income or market valuation approach based on an appraisal conducted by an independent, licensed appraiser outside of the Company using observable market data (Level 2). However, if the collateral value is significantly adjusted due to differences in the comparable properties, or is discounted by the Company because of marketability, then the fair value is considered Level 3.

 

The value of business equipment is based upon an outside appraisal if deemed significant, or the net book value on the applicable business’ financial statements if not considered significant. Likewise, values for inventory and accounts receivables collateral are based on financial statement balances or aging reports (Level 3). Impaired loans allocated to the allowance for loan losses are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis. Any fair value adjustments are recorded in the period incurred as provision for loan losses on the consolidated statements of income.

 

 30 

 

  

Other Real Estate Owned. OREO is measured at fair value less cost to sell, based on an appraisal conducted by an independent, licensed appraiser outside of the Company using observable market data (Level 2). If the collateral value is significantly adjusted due to differences in the comparable properties, or is discounted by the Company because of marketability, then the fair value is considered Level 3. OREO is measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis. Any initial fair value adjustment is charged against the allowance for loan losses. Subsequent fair value adjustments are recorded in the period incurred and included in other noninterest expense on the consolidated statements of income.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

U.S. GAAP requires disclosure of the fair value of financial assets and financial liabilities, including those financial assets and financial liabilities that are not measured and reported at fair value on a recurring basis or non-recurring basis. The methodologies and assumptions for estimating the fair value of financial assets and financial liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring or non-recurring basis are discussed above. The methodologies and assumptions for other financial assets and financial liabilities are discussed below:

 

Cash and Short-Term Investments. For those short-term instruments, the carrying amount is a reasonable estimate of fair value.

 

Investment Securities. For securities and marketable equity securities held for investment purposes, fair values are based on quoted market prices or dealer quotes. For other securities held as investments, fair value equals quoted market price, if available. If a quoted market price is not available, fair value is estimated using quoted prices for similar securities. All securities prices are provided by independent third party vendors.

 

Restricted Securities. The carrying amount approximates fair value based on the redemption provisions of the correspondent banks.

 

Loans. The fair value of performing loans is estimated by discounting the future cash flows using the current rates at which similar loans would be made to borrowers with similar remaining maturities. This calculation ignores loan fees and certain factors affecting the interest rates charged on various loans such as the borrower’s creditworthiness and compensating balances and dissimilar types of real estate held as collateral. The fair value of impaired loans is measured as described within the Impaired Loans section of this note.

 

Bank Owned Life Insurance. Bank owned life insurance represents insurance policies on officers of the Company. The cash values of the policies are estimated using information provided by insurance carriers. The policies are carried at their cash surrender value, which approximates fair value.

 

 32 

 

  

Deposits. The fair value of demand deposits, savings accounts, and certain money market deposits is the amount payable on demand at the reporting date. The fair value of fixed maturity certificates of deposit is estimated using market rates for deposits of similar remaining maturities.

 

Short-Term Borrowings. The carrying amounts of federal funds purchased and other short-term borrowings maturing within 90 days approximate their fair values. Fair values of other short-term borrowings are estimated using discounted cash flow analyses based on the current incremental borrowing rates for similar types of borrowing arrangements.

 

Long-Term Borrowings. The fair values of the Company’s long-term borrowings are estimated using discounted cash flow analyses based on the Company’s current incremental borrowing rates for similar types of borrowing arrangements.

 

Accrued Interest Receivable and Accrued Interest Payable. The carrying amounts of accrued interest approximate fair value.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Financial Instruments. The fair value of commitments to extend credit is estimated using the fees currently charged to enter similar agreements, taking into account the remaining terms of the agreements and the present credit worthiness of the counterparties. For fixed-rate loan commitments, fair value also considers the difference between current levels of interest rates and the committed rates.

 

The fair value of standby letters of credit is based on fees currently charged for similar agreements or on the estimated cost to terminate them or otherwise settle the obligations with the counterparties at the reporting date. The fair value of guarantees of credit card accounts previously sold is based on the estimated cost to settle the obligations with the counterparty at the reporting date. At March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the fair value of loan commitments, standby letters of credit and credit card guarantees are not significant and are not included in the table below.
