PART III – NARRATIVE

State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

Access National Corporation (the “Corporation”) was unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 (the “2017 Form 10-K”) by March 16, 2018 without unreasonable effort or expense for the reasons described below.

Management was unable to produce all deliverables to its independent auditor on a timely basis to allow the independent auditor to complete its required procedures without unreasonable effort or expense.  Management does not expect the delivery of further information required by the independent auditor or the independent auditor’s review of such data to produce any material adverse adjustment to the Statement of Income or the value or growth in earning assets and customer deposit balances previously reported for the period ended December 31, 2017 contained in the Earnings Release filed on Form 8-K February 2, 2018.  Management views the delay as administrative in nature stemming from the elevated volume of activity and operational changes in connection with the April 1, 2017 acquisition of Middleburg Financial Corporation.

Management fully understands and agrees with the necessity of timely and reliable financial reporting and is significantly disappointed in filing this Notification of Late Filing.  Management believes the Company has the appropriate level of competency and staff to make the subject 10-K filing within the prescribed time frame and meet or exceed reporting future reporting obligations.

The Corporation expects to file the 2017 Form 10-K within the extension period of fifteen calendar days provided under Rule 12b-25 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

The Corporation’s expectation regarding the timing of the filing of the 2017 Form 10-K and the Corporation’s belief with respect to anticipated changes from the results of operation from the corresponding period of the last fiscal year are forward-looking statements as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and actual events may differ materially from those contemplated by these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, including the inability of the Corporation or its independent auditor to complete the work necessary in order to file the 2017 Form 10-K in the time frame that is anticipated. The Corporation undertakes no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof.
