GLEN ALLEN, Va., July 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Capital Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:FCVA) parent company to First Capital Bank (the "Bank") reported today its financial results for the second quarter and first half of 2014. For the three months ended June 30, 2014, the Company had net income available to common shareholders of $1.0 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to net income available to common shareholders of $915 thousand, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the same period in 2013. This represents a $94 thousand or 10.27% increase in net income available to common shareholders in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company had net income available to common shareholders of $2.0 million or $0.13 per diluted share compared to net income available to common shareholders of $1.6 million or $0.12 per diluted share for the same period in 2013. This represents a $339 thousand or 20.89% increase over the same period in 2013.

Factors contributing to the Company's increase in net income during the second quarter of 2014 are as follows:

  • Net interest income improved to $4.8 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $4.4 million in the second quarter of 2013, an increase of $351 thousand or 7.95%, driven primarily from loan growth.
  • The increase in net interest income was somewhat offset by a decrease in non interest income. Non interest income was $483 thousand for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $744 thousand in the second quarter of 2013, a $261 thousand or 35.08% decrease from the prior year. Strategic decisions were made to exit the wholesale mortgage business in the first quarter of 2014, causing a decrease in noninterest income of $303 thousand, but which the Company expects will be accretive to earnings overall.
  • The net interest margin was 3.63% for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to 3.61% for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, a 2 basis point increase. This increase was driven by the utilization of the bond portfolio to fund the average increase in loans outstanding and the continued decline in cost of funds primarily from CD products, as well as FHLB advance repricings.
  • Non-interest expense was essentially unchanged from the second quarter of 2013.
  • There was no provision for loan losses in either the second quarter of 2014 or the second quarter of 2013.

Growth

At June 30, 2014, total assets were $578.1 million, compared to $547.9 million at December 31, 2013, a $30.2 million or 5.52% increase. This growth is primarily attributable to the Bank's increased visibility in and commitment to the local marketplace and the continued improvement in the market area's economic stability. In the first half of 2014, loan growth, net of the allowance, was $30.5 million or 7.21%, or 14.43% on an annualized basis.

Gross loans at June 30, 2014, were $461.6 million compared to $431.3 million at December 31, 2013, a $30.3 million or a 7.02% increase. The Company continues to see a rise in loan demand in our market as the economy and consumer confidence improves.

Total deposits at June 30, 2014, were $467.8 million, an increase of $11.8 million or 2.59%, from $456.0 million at December 31, 2013. Non-interest bearing deposits increased to $74.5 million compared to $67.7 million at December 31, 2013 an increase of $6.8 million or 10.03%.

First Capital Bank President and CEO, Bob Watts stated, "The second quarter growth in loans and deposits continue the trends from recent quarters. We opened our eighth branch during the quarter in the Swift Creek Kroger store and were pleased with the reception we have been given and the new business we are starting to attract."

Capital

Total Risk Based Capital at June 30, 2014, was 13.62%, compared to 13.78% at December 31, 2013. Tier 1 Risk Based Capital at June 30, 2014, was 10.84%, compared to 12.34% at December 31, 2013. Additionally, tangible common equity increased to 8.16% at June 30, 2014 from 8.06% at December 31, 2013.

First Capital Bancorp, Inc. Managing Director and CEO, John Presley, commented "Maintaining strong capital levels continues to be a key focus as our team manages our growth in 2014. We completed a strategic capital initiative early in 2014 whereby we replaced the remaining preferred securities with subordinated debt to both reduce the expense associated with the funds and maintain total capital levels. The continued improvement in capital represents an enterprise wide focus on managing capital in all aspects of daily operations, from loan growth and investment strategy to liability management. We are pleased to see successful results from these efforts."

On January 10, 2014, the Company redeemed the remaining 5,531 shares of its Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A ("Preferred Stock"), for $5.6 million. The Preferred Stock paid a cumulative dividend quarterly at a rate of 5% per annum. Effective April 2014, the dividend rate would have increased to 9% per annum. The Preferred Stock was redeemable at the option of the Company subject to regulatory approval, which was received in November 2013. No shares of the Preferred Stock remain outstanding.

The Company funded the redemption by executing a variable rate subordinated note for $6.5 million with a financial institution. The subordinated note, which qualifies as Tier 2 capital for regulatory purposes, carries an interest rate of 30-day Libor plus 5.00% per annum with a floor of 5.50% and a maturity of 10 years. Principal is repaid $8 thousand per month for the first 60 months and $103 thousand per month for the remaining 60 months.

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income, including gains on sales of securities, totaled $483 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, a decrease of $261 thousand or 35.08% from $744 thousand earned in the quarter ended June 30, 2013. The primary driver in this decrease was a $303 thousand decline in gain on sale of loans from wholesale mortgage. During the first quarter of 2014, the Company closed its wholesale mortgage operation. The slowdown in the mortgage originations business coupled with the increased regulatory burden made the business difficult to sustain. The Company expects this decision will be accretive to 2014 earnings.

Non-interest Expense

Total noninterest expense was $3.8 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $3.7 million in the second quarter of 2013, an increase of $48 thousand or 1.29%.

The Bank currently operates eight branches in Innsbrook, Chesterfield Towne Center, near Willow Lawn on Staples Mill Road, in Ashland, at Three Chopt and Patterson in Henrico County, at the James Center in downtown, Richmond, in Bon Air and inside the Village at Swift Creek Kroger Store in Chesterfield County.
