Blue Ridge Bankshares, Inc. Releases 2014 2nd Quarter Results

Company reports strong growth

LURAY, Va., July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Ridge Bankshares, Inc. (OTCQB: BRBS), parent company of Blue Ridge Bank, announced today its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.  The Company reported net income of $994,650 for the first six months of 2014, or $1.04 per common share, compared to $973,085 of net income for the same period in 2013, or $0.98 per common share.  The increase in earnings per common share represented growth of 6.1%.  In addition, the Company was pleased to declare a dividend of $0.11 during the second quarter of 2014, which is an increase of 37.5% compared to the 2013 second quarter dividend of $0.08.         

The Company experienced asset growth of 4.8% during the first six months of the year, a majority of which is attributable to growth in the Company's held-for-investment loan portfolio of approximately $9,100,000.  The Company's asset quality continues to be strong with no significant write-offs during the past six months, and no additional provision to the loan loss reserve being necessary. "The continued growth of the loan portfolio with high-performing loans is not only a testament to our quality underwriting standards, but also to the communities in which the Bank serves and the continuous referrals from our existing customer base," stated Monte L. Layman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

The second quarter also brought a new opportunity for the Company with the opening of a new branch in Harrisonburg, VA on April 21, 2014.  "We are excited to be a part of the Harrisonburg market. We have served individuals and businesses in this community for years and are excited to have increased our efforts with a physical presence," stated Mr. Layman.  "Our Harrisonburg branch builds on the deep personal and professional connections the Bank has with the Harrisonburg and Rockingham market, and supports the Bank's plan to grow in a prudent and meaningful fashion by providing competitive loan and deposit products in all of our markets while maintaining our track record of favorable asset quality."
