Explanatory Note

 

Access National Corporation (the “Corporation”) filed its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 (the “Original Filing”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2016. The Original Filing reported the regulatory components of the Corporation’s capital and risk based capital ratios in Part I, Item 2 (Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations).

 

Very shortly after filing the Original Filing, we learned that the regulatory components and capital and risk based capital ratios were reported incorrectly in the Original Filing. The Original Filing presented the June 30, 2016 capital and risk based capital ratios under the September 30, 2016 column. This Amendment No. 1 to the Original Filing corrects the error. This correction presents the September 30, 2016 capital and risk based capital ratios under the September 30, 2016 column as originally intended.

 

We are not amending any other part of the Original Filing. This amendment speaks as of the date of the Original Filing. Accordingly, this Amendment No. 1 should be read in conjunction with the Original Filing and the Corporation’s other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The Corporation’s consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP. In preparing the Corporation’s financial statements management makes estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses. Management believes that the most significant subjective judgments that it makes include the following:

 

Allowance for Loan Losses

 

The allowance for loan losses is an estimate of the losses that may be sustained in our loan portfolio. The allowance is based on two basic principles of accounting: (i) FASB ASC 450-10, which requires that losses be accrued when they are probable of occurring and can be estimated, and (ii) FASB ASC 310-10, which requires that losses be accrued based on the differences between the value of collateral, present value of future cash flows or values that are observable in the secondary market and the loan balance. An allowance for loan losses is established through a provision for loan losses based upon industry standards, known risk characteristics, management’s evaluation of the risk inherent in the loan portfolio, and changes in the nature and volume of loan activity. Such evaluation considers, among other factors, the estimated market value of the underlying collateral and current economic conditions. For further information about our practices with respect to allowance for loan losses, please see Note 4 to the consolidated financial statements.

 

Other Than Temporary Impairment of Securities

 

Securities in the Corporation’s securities portfolio are classified as either available-for-sale or held-to-maturity. At September 30, 2016, there were no non-agency mortgage backed securities or trust preferred securities in the portfolio. The estimated fair value of the portfolio fluctuates due to changes in market interest rates and other factors. Changes in estimated fair value are recorded in shareholders’ equity as a component of other comprehensive income. Securities are monitored to determine whether a decline in their value is other than temporary. Management evaluates the securities portfolio on a quarterly basis to determine the collectability of amounts due per the contractual terms of each security. A decline in the fair value of an investment below its amortized cost attributable to factors that indicate the decline will not be recovered over the anticipated holding period of the investment will cause the security to be considered other than temporarily impaired. Other than temporary impairments result in reducing the security’s carrying value by the amount of the estimated credit loss. The credit component of the other than temporary impairment loss is realized through the statement of income and the remainder of the loss remains in other comprehensive income. At September 30, 2016, there were no securities with other than temporary impairment.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Corporation uses the liability method of accounting for income taxes. This method results in the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities that are reflected at currently enacted income tax rates applicable to the period in which the deferred tax assets or liabilities are expected to be realized or settled. As changes in tax laws or rates are enacted, deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted through the provision for income taxes. The deferred provision for income taxes is the result of the net change in the deferred tax asset and deferred tax liability balances during the year. This amount combined with the current taxes payable or refundable results in the income tax expense for the current year. The Corporation’s evaluation of the deductibility or taxability of items included in the Corporation’s tax returns has not resulted in the identification of any material, uncertain tax positions.

 

 - 2 -

 

 

Fair Value

 

Fair values of financial instruments are estimated using relevant market information and other assumptions. Fair value estimates involve uncertainties and matters of significant judgment regarding interest rates, credit risk, prepayments and other factors, especially in the absence of broad markets for particular items. Changes in assumptions or in market conditions could significantly affect the estimates. The fair value estimates of existing on and off-balance sheet financial instruments do not include the value of anticipated future business or the values of assets and liabilities not considered financial instruments. For additional information about our financial assets carried at fair value, please see Note 9 to the consolidated financial statements.

 

Pending Acquisition of Middleburg Financial Corporation

 

On October 24, 2016, the Corporation announced the signing of a definitive agreement and plan of reorganization, dated as of October 21, 2016, pursuant to which the Corporation and Middleburg will merge. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Middleburg shareholders will receive a fixed exchange ratio of 1.3314 Corporation shares for each share of Middleburg common stock owned. For more information on this pending acquisition refer to Note 12 to the consolidated financial statements and the Corporation’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on October 24, 2016.

 

FINANCIAL CONDITION

 

Executive Summary

 

At September 30, 2016, the Corporation’s assets totaled $1.36 billion and grew $184.3 million when compared to December 31, 2015. The increase in assets was primarily due to a growth in loans held for investment of $79.0 million, a $25.0 million increase in investment securities, a $26.9 million growth in loans held for sale, and $43.2 million of growth in interest-bearing balances. The first nine months of 2016 reflected growth in all categories of loans held for investment from December 31, 2015 with the exception of consumer loans. The $79.0 million increase in loans held for investment as compared to December 31, 2015 is primarily attributable to a $26.8 million or 18.13% growth in commercial real estate – non-owner occupied loans, a $18.3 million or 8.34% increase in commercial real estate – owner occupied loans, a $13.6 million or 20.63% increase in real estate construction loans, and a $22.3 million or 9.18% increase in commercial loans. Overall, the portfolio of loans held for investment grew at an annualized rate of 11.9%. At September 30, 2016, loans secured by real estate collateral comprised 71.89% of our total loan portfolio, with loans secured by commercial real estate contributing 42.69% of our total loan portfolio, loans secured by residential real estate contributing 20.96% and real estate construction loans contributing 8.24%. Loans held for sale totaled $71.0 million at September 30, 2016, compared to $44.1 million at December 31, 2015. Loans held for sale fluctuates with the volume of loans originated during any given month and the length of time the loans are held prior to selling them in the secondary market. Deposits totaled $1.115 billion at September 30, 2016, compared to $913.7 million at December 31, 2015, an increase of $201.3 million. Noninterest-bearing deposits increased $101.8 million from $307.8 million at December 31, 2015 to $409.6 million at September 30, 2016. Savings and interest-bearing deposits increased $143.2 million from $293.7 million at December 31, 2015 to $436.9 million at September 30, 2016. Non-wholesale time deposits increased from $136.0 million at December 31, 2015 to $163.7 million at September 30, 2016, an increase of $27.7 million, while wholesale funding time deposits saw a net decrease of $71.0 million, from $176.4 million at December 31, 2015 to $105.4 million at September 30, 2016.

 

Net income for the third quarter of 2016 totaled $4.4 million compared to $3.9 million for the same period in 2015. Earnings per diluted share were $0.41 for the third quarter of 2016, compared to $0.37 per diluted share in the same period of 2015. Third quarter 2016 pretax earnings increased $879 thousand or 14.58% when compared to third quarter 2015 pretax earnings.

 

The banking segment had a decrease in pre-tax earnings when compared to the third quarter 2015 of $210 thousand, driven by an increase in our provision for loan loss of $750 thousand. The banking segment’s interest income increased $1.6 million when compared to third quarter 2015 which was partially offset by an increase in salaries and benefits and interest expense of $444 thousand and $577 thousand, respectively. The mortgage segment had an increase in gains on the sale of loans of $2.5 million that resulted from an increase in the secondary margins on mortgage loans held for sale over third quarter 2015.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 totaled $13.4 million compared to $11.5 million for the same period in 2015. Earnings per diluted share were $1.26 for the first nine months of 2016, compared to $1.09 per diluted share in the same period of 2015. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2016, the banking segment saw an increase in pretax income of $989 thousand when compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2015 due to an increase in net interest income of $3.1 million and an increase in non-interest income of $648 thousand which was partially offset by an increase in salaries and employee benefits of $2.0 million due to continued staffing expansion. When comparing the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 to the same period in 2015, the mortgage segment saw a pretax earnings increase of $2.1 million. The mortgage segment had an increase in gains on the sale of loans of $4.3 million when comparing the nine months ended September 30, 2016 to the same period in 2015 due to an increase in the secondary margins on mortgage loans held for sale, the increase was offset by a $1.6 million increase in salaries and employee benefits.

 

Non-performing assets (“NPAs”) totaled $5.8 million, or 0.43%, of total assets at September 30, 2016, down from $7.4 million, or 0.63% of total assets as of December 31, 2015. The Bank did not have other real estate owned at September 30, 2016. During the third quarter 2016, Access Real Estate sold its other real estate owned property with a carrying value of $500 thousand for $463 thousand. The allowance for loan loss was $14.7 million and $13.6 million at September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, and represented 1.52% and 1.53% of total loans held for investment at September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively.

 

The unemployment rate for Fairfax County, Virginia was at 3.2% as of July 2016 and still well below the 4.0% unemployment rate for the state of Virginia at the end of September 2016 and 5.0% for the nation at the end of September 2016. Information reviewed at the Federal Open Market Committee’s (FOMC) November 2016 meeting indicated the labor market strengthened and economic activity has picked up from the modest pace seen in the first half of the year with solid job gains. The FOMC reaffirmed its view that the current target rate for the federal funds rate remains accommodative to support further improvement in labor market conditions and a return to 2% inflation. The historically low interest rate environment continues to negatively impact yields of variable loans and the securities portfolio. The Corporation’s net interest margin for the three months ended September 30, 2016 decreased to 3.49% from the three months ended September 30, 2015 percentage of 3.70%. While there is no certainty to the magnitude of any impact, the continued extended period of low short-term interest rates, as presently forecasted by the Federal Reserve, will continue to have an adverse effect on the net interest margin.

 

The latest Case-Shiller Home Price data available shows home prices increased 5.3% for the twelve months ended August 2016. The Consumer Confidence Index increased in August 2016, to 101.1, up from 96.7 in July 2016. Retail sales for August 2016 were 1.9% greater than a year earlier. As such, we remain cautious and have generally retained more cautious loan underwriting criteria established during the financial crisis period of 2007 – 2009. In spite of these challenges, we are proactive in seeking new client relationships driven by our target market profile: business-to-business and business-to-government companies with annual revenue of $1 million to $100 million and the various banking services needed by the business and the professionals associated with the businesses. The Corporation is optimistic with a strong capital base and being positioned for continued growth.

 

Securities

 

The Corporation’s securities portfolio is comprised of U.S. government agency securities, mortgage backed securities, corporate bonds, a CRA mutual fund, certificates of deposit, and asset backed securities as well as municipal bonds. The portfolio does not have any non-agency mortgage backed securities or trust preferred securities.

 

At September 30, 2016 the fair value of the securities portfolio totaled $199.7 million, compared to $174.5 million at December 31, 2015. Included in the fair value totals are held-to-maturity securities with an amortized cost of $9.2 million (fair value of $9.5 million) and $14.3 million (fair value of $14.3 million) at September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively. Securities classified as available-for-sale are accounted for at fair market value with unrealized gains and losses recorded directly to a separate component of shareholders' equity, net of associated tax effect while held-to-maturity securities are carried at amortized cost. Investment securities are used to provide liquidity, to generate income, and to temporarily supplement loan growth as needed.

Restricted Stock

 

Restricted stock consists of FHLB stock and FRB stock. These stocks are classified as restricted stocks because their ownership is restricted to certain types of entities and they lack a market. Restricted stock is carried at cost on the Corporation’s financial statements. Dividends are paid semiannually on FRB stock and quarterly on FHLB stock.

 

Loans

 

The loan portfolio constitutes the largest component of earning assets and is comprised of commercial real estate – owner occupied, commercial real estate – non-owner occupied, residential real estate, commercial, real estate construction, and consumer loans. All lending activities of the Bank and its subsidiaries are subject to the regulations and supervision of the Comptroller. The loan portfolio does not have any pay option adjustable rate mortgages, loans with teaser rates or subprime loans or any other loans considered “high risk loans”. Loans totaled $966.5 million at September 30, 2016 compared to $887.5 million at December 31, 2015, an increase of $79.0 million or 8.9%. Comprising the growth, commercial real estate – owner occupied loans increased $18.3 million, commercial loans increased $22.3 million, real estate construction loans increased $13.6 million, residential real estate loans increased $1.1 million, and commercial real estate – non-owner occupied increased $26.8 million. Offsetting the growth was a decrease in consumer loans of $3.1 million. The overall increase in loans reflects results from our marketing outreach as well as continued improvement in loan demand by local businesses. Please see Note 4 to the consolidated financial statements for a table that summarizes the composition of the Corporation’s loan portfolio. The following is a summary of the loan portfolio at September 30, 2016.

 

Commercial Real Estate Loans – Owner Occupied: This category of loans represented the second largest segment of the loan portfolio and was comprised of owner occupied loans secured by the commercial property, totaling $238.2 million, representing 24.65% of the loan portfolio at September 30, 2016. Commercial real estate loans are secured by the subject property and underwritten to policy standards. Policy standards approved by the Board of Directors from time to time set forth, among other considerations, loan-to-value limits, cash flow coverage ratios, and the general creditworthiness of the obligors.

 

Commercial Real Estate Loans – Non-Owner Occupied: This category of loans represented the fourth largest segment of the loan portfolio and was comprised of loans secured by income producing commercial property, totaling $174.3 million and representing 18.04% of the loan portfolio at September 30, 2016. Commercial real estate loans are secured by the subject property and underwritten to policy standards as listed above.

 

Residential Real Estate Loans: This category represented the third largest segment of the loan portfolio and included loans secured by first or second mortgages on one to four family residential properties. This segment totaled $202.6 million and comprised 20.96% of the loan portfolio as of September 30, 2016. Of this amount, the following sub-categories existed as a percentage of the whole residential real estate loan portfolio as of September 30, 2016: home equity lines of credit, 21.7%; first trust mortgage loans, 71.4%; and junior trust loans, 6.9%.

 

Home equity lines of credit are extended to borrowers in our target market. Real estate equity is often the largest component of consumer wealth in our marketplace. Once approved, this consumer finance tool allows the borrowers to access the equity in their homes or investment properties and use the proceeds for virtually any purpose. Home equity lines of credit are most frequently secured by a second lien on residential property. The proceeds of first trust mortgage loans are used to acquire or refinance the primary financing on owner occupied and residential investment properties. Junior trust loans are loans to consumers wherein the proceeds have been used for a stated consumer purpose. Examples of consumer purposes are education, refinancing debt, or purchasing consumer goods. The loans are generally extended in a single disbursement and repaid over a specified period of time. Loans in the residential real estate portfolio are underwritten to standards within a traditional consumer framework that is periodically reviewed and updated by management and the Board of Directors and takes into consideration repayment source and capacity, value of the underlying property, credit history, savings pattern, and stability.

 

 - 5 -

 

 

Commercial Loans: Commercial loans represented the largest segment of the loan portfolio, totaling $264.8 million and representing 27.40% of the loan portfolio as of September 30, 2016. These loans are made to businesses or individuals within our target market for business purposes. Typically the loan proceeds are used to support working capital and the acquisition of fixed assets of an operating business. We underwrite these loans based upon our assessment of the obligor(s)’ ability to generate operating cash flows in the future necessary to repay the loan. To address the risks associated with the uncertainties of future cash flows, these loans are generally well secured by assets owned by the business or its principal shareholders/owners and the principal shareholders/owners are typically required to guarantee the loan.

 

Real Estate Construction Loans: Real estate construction loans, also known as construction and land development loans represented the fifth largest segment of the loan portfolio and totaled $79.6 million and represented 8.24% of the loan portfolio as of September 30, 2016. These loans generally fall into one of three categories: first, loans to individuals that are ultimately used to acquire property and construct an owner occupied residence; second, loans to builders for the purpose of acquiring property and constructing homes for sale to consumers; and third, loans to developers for the purpose of acquiring land that is developed into finished lots for the ultimate construction of residential or commercial buildings. Loans of these types are generally secured by the subject property within limits established by the Board of Directors based upon an assessment of market conditions and updated from time to time. The loans typically carry recourse to principal owners. In addition to the repayment risk associated with loans to individuals and businesses, loans in this category carry construction completion risk. To address this additional risk, loans of this type are subject to additional administration procedures designed to verify and ensure progress of the project in accordance with allocated funding, project specifications and time frames.

 

Consumer Loans: Consumer loans, the smallest segment of the loan portfolio, totaled $7.0 million and represented 0.71% of the loan portfolio as of September 30, 2016. Most loans in this category are well secured with assets other than real estate, such as marketable securities or automobiles. Very few consumer loans are unsecured. As a matter of operation, management discourages unsecured lending. Loans in this category are underwritten to standards within a traditional consumer framework that is periodically reviewed and updated by management and the Board of Directors and takes into consideration repayment capacity, collateral value, savings pattern, credit history, and stability.

 

Loans Held for Sale (“LHFS”)

 

LHFS are residential mortgage loans originated by the Mortgage Division of the Bank to consumers and underwritten in accordance with standards set forth by an institutional investor to whom we expect to sell the loans for a profit. Loan proceeds are used for the purchase or refinance of the property securing the loan. Loans are sold with the servicing released to the investor. At September 30, 2016, LHFS at fair value totaled $71.0 million compared to $44.1 million at December 31, 2015.

 

The LHFS are closed by the Mortgage Division and held on average fifteen to thirty days pending their sale to government sponsored entities as well as mortgage banking subsidiaries of large financial institutions. During the third quarter of 2016 we originated $168.8 million of loans processed in this manner, compared to $120.0 million for the third quarter of 2015. Loans are sold without recourse and subject to industry standard representations and warranties that may require the repurchase by the Bank of loans previously sold. The repurchase risks associated with this activity center around early payment defaults and borrower fraud.

 

Allowance for Loan Losses

 

The allowance for loan losses totaled $14.7 million at September 30, 2016 compared to $13.6 million at December 31, 2015. The allowance for loan losses was equivalent to 1.52% and 1.53% of total loans held for investment at September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively. Adequacy of the allowance is assessed and increased by provisions for loan losses charged to expense no less than quarterly. Charge-offs are taken when a loan is identified as uncollectible. For additional information about the allowance for loan losses, please see Note 4 to the consolidated financial statements.

Shareholders’ Equity

 

Shareholders’ equity totaled $121.3 million at September 30, 2016 compared to $109.1 million at December 31, 2015. The increase in shareholders’ equity is due mainly to retained earnings net of dividends paid. Banking regulators have defined minimum regulatory capital ratios that the Corporation and the Bank are required to maintain. These risk based capital guidelines take into consideration risk factors, as defined by the banking regulators, associated with various categories of assets, both on and off the balance sheet. Both the Corporation and Bank are classified as well capitalized, which is the highest rating.

 

Beginning January 1, 2015, the Corporation calculates its regulatory capital under the Basel III Final Rules which modified the definition of “well capitalized” and implemented changes in the risk weights of assets. The following table outlines the regulatory components of the Corporation’s capital and risk based capital ratios under these new rules.

Liquidity Management

 

Liquidity is the ability of the Corporation to meet current and future cash flow requirements. The liquidity of a financial institution reflects its ability to convert assets into cash or cash equivalents without significant loss and to raise additional funds by increasing liabilities. Liquidity management involves maintaining the Corporation’s ability to meet the daily cash flow requirements of both depositors and borrowers. Management monitors liquidity through a regular review of asset and liability maturities, funding sources, and loan and deposit forecasts. Asset and liability management functions not only serve to assure adequate liquidity in order to meet the needs of the Corporation’s customers, but also to maintain an appropriate balance between interest sensitive assets and interest sensitive liabilities so that the Corporation can earn an appropriate return for its shareholders.

 

The asset portion of the balance sheet provides liquidity primarily through loan principal repayments and maturities of investment securities. Other short-term investments such as federal funds sold and interest-bearing deposits with other banks provide an additional source of liquidity funding. At September 30, 2016, overnight interest-bearing balances totaled $67.8 million and unpledged available-for-sale investment securities totaled approximately $29.0 million.

 

The Bank proactively manages a portfolio of short-term time deposits issued to local municipalities and wholesale depositors in order to fund loans held for sale and short-term investments.

Management believes the Corporation is well positioned with liquid assets, the ability to generate liquidity through liability funding and the availability of borrowed funds, to meet the liquidity needs of depositors and customers’ borrowing needs. The Corporation’s ability to maintain sufficient liquidity may be affected by numerous factors, including economic conditions nationally and in our markets. Depending on the Corporation’s liquidity levels, its capital position, conditions in the capital markets and other factors, the Corporation may from time to time consider the issuance of debt, equity or other securities, or other possible capital markets transactions, the proceeds of which could provide additional liquidity for its operations.
