Dean Withers, President and CEO, commented, "This is our third consecutive year of earnings improvement and, for the first time since 2005, we have achieved record earnings on a nominal basis. While we are pleased with these results, this level of earnings does not reflect our pre-recession performance relative to traditional measures of Return on Assets and Return on Equity." Withers continued, "We are cautiously optimistic that 2013 will result in the further, slow progress in reducing non-performing loans. As I stated in our last quarterly earnings announcement, we are seeing signs of modest improvement in both the local housing and commercial real estate markets. However, we still believe at this time that it is important to build our reserves, as there are still some borrowers that are struggling to recover from the lingering effects of the recession."

Withers stated, "Economic activity in our markets appears to be picking up, as we've seen an improvement in recent loan demand. This improved demand crosses multiple business lines, as we are seeing good growth in our Dealer Finance Division, strong interest in our new Fishersville Loan Production Office and improved loan demand in our established markets. On January 17, 2013, our Board of Directors declared a fourth quarter dividend of $0.17 per share. This is an increase of $.01 per share, compared to the prior year and prior quarter. Based on our most recent trade price of $16 per share, this dividend constitutes a 4.25% yield on an annualized basis. The dividend will be paid on February 8, 2013, to shareholders of record as of January 29, 2013." Highlights of the company's financial performance are included below.
