Dean Withers, President and CEO, commented, "Second quarter earnings increased 30.9% versus prior year, to $1.484 million. We are very pleased to report that this is a record for any single quarter in our history. The sharp increase is due primarily to continued growth in our net interest margin, which increased to 4.35%.The primary drivers of the improved net interest margin are a continued decrease in the cost of deposits and a reduction in low yielding federal funds deposits as a result of loan growth." Withers continued, "Loans held for investment have increased $24.5 million in the last twelve months as a result of continued strong growth in our Dealer Finance Division and our Fishersville Loan Production Office."

Withers stated, "Also contributing to our improved earnings is the decrease in the provision for loan losses as a result of improvements in non-performing loans. Non-performing loans at $7.4 million decreased $6.5 million (46.8%) compared to the same period in 2013 and $3.7 million (33.2%) compared to the first quarter 2014. We are ahead of pace to meet our 2014 goals for improvement in both our non-performing and criticized asset ratios." Withers continued, "On July 17, 2014, our Board of Directors declared a second quarter dividend of $0.17 per share. Based on our most recent trade price of $17.95 per share, this dividend constitutes a 3.79% yield on an annualized basis. The dividend will be paid on August 8, 2014, to shareholders of record as of July 29, 2014." A summary balance sheet and income statement are included below.
