PART II – RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)

If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed.  (Check box if appropriate.)

(a)           The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;
(b)           The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and
(c)           The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.


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.

(Attach extra sheets if needed.)
Bay Banks of Virginia, Inc. (the "Company") was unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 (the "2017 10-K") by the scheduled due date of April 2, 2018 without unreasonable effort or expense, as explained below.

Management of the Company has been working diligently to prepare the 2017 10-K, and a substantial part of the information required for the 2017 10-K has been completed as of this date, however there has been a delay in the collection and compilation of certain final financial and other information required to be included in the 2017 Form 10-K. Such delay is related, in part, to the Company's system-wide computer conversion that occurred in November 2017 following the Company's April 1, 2017 merger with Virginia BanCorp Inc. (the "Virginia BanCorp Merger"). The Company requires additional time to (i) collect and compile such certain financial and other information and (ii) allow its independent registered public accounting firm to complete certain audit procedures. Management views the delay as administrative in nature stemming from the elevated volume of activity and operational changes in connection with the Virginia BanCorp Merger.
The 2017 Form 10-K will be filed as soon as possible and no later than the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date.

Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed?  If the answer is no, identify report(s).
[ X  ] Yes    [     ] No

Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?
[ X  ] Yes    [     ] No

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

The Company's results of operations for the year ended December 31, 2017 will be significantly different from that reported for the year ended December 31, 2016, primarily due to the Virginia BanCorp Merger.  The Company acquired approximately $330.5 million in total assets from Virginia BanCorp Inc. at the time of the merger. The merger was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting and, accordingly, Virginia BanCorp Inc.'s operating results have been included in the Company's consolidated financial statements from the acquisition date, which was April 1, 2017. The Company's fiscal 2017 financial results reflect nine months of combined operations, whereas the results of operations for fiscal 2016 relate to the Company on a standalone basis. As a result, the Company's 2017 financial results may not be comparable to financial results in prior periods.

On March 26, 2018, the Company released preliminary unaudited financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017, which information remains preliminary, subject to completion of the audit procedures referenced in Part III above and subject to change in the Company's 2017 Form 10-K.
