Company Release - 10/22/2018 10:00 AM ET

WARRENTON, Va., Oct. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Fauquier Bankshares, Inc. (the Company) (NASDAQ: FBSS), parent company of The Fauquier Bank, reported net income of $1.3 million, or $0.35 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared with $1.7 million, or $0.44 per diluted share for the prior quarter and $1.3 million or $0.34 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2017.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, net income was $4.6 million, or $1.21 per diluted share compared with $3.0 million, or $0.81 per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2018, the Company's return on average equity (ROE) and return on average assets (ROA) were 8.96% and 0.79%, respectively, compared with 11.66% and 1.02% for the prior quarter, respectively, and 8.96% and 0.80%, for the third quarter of 2017, respectively.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, ROE and ROA were 10.66% and 0.93%, respectively, compared with 7.27% and 0.65%, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Marc Bogan, President and CEO said, "While financial performance in the third quarter of 2018 was good, it was slightly below the previous two quarters based on one-time events in each of those quarters.  Loan growth was strong during the quarter, which we expect will contribute to future earnings, however, deposit growth was a challenge due to rising interest rates, competitive markets, and deposit alternatives.  As we look to the fourth quarter, we will continue to focus on achieving our strategic goals and objectives for the year."

Total assets were $670.0 million on September 30, 2018 compared with $651.5 million for the prior quarter and $631.7 million on September 30, 2017.  Net loans increased $22.2 million to $527.8 million on September 30, 2018 compared with the prior quarter and increased $42.5 million compared with September 30, 2017.  Total deposits were $566.2 million on September 30, 2018 compared with $565.8 million for the prior quarter and $556.2 million on September 30, 2017.  Low cost transaction deposits (demand and interest checking accounts) were $345.9 million on September 30, 2018 compared with $345.1 million for the prior quarter and $348.0 million on September 30, 2017.

Net interest margin was 3.81% for the third quarter of 2018 compared with 3.88% for the prior quarter, and 3.75% for the third quarter of 2017.  Net interest income was $5.8 million for the third quarter of 2018 compared with $5.9 million for the prior quarter and $5.5 million for the third quarter of 2017.  The decline in net interest income and margin from the prior quarter was due primarily to the payoff of a nonaccrual loan in the prior quarter that resulted in the recovery of interest income.  Net interest margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was 3.81% and 3.62%, respectively.

The Company's allowance for loan loss methodology determines the level of loan provision at the end of each quarter.  Based on loan portfolio growth, net charge-off history, asset quality indicators, impaired loans and other qualitative factors, the provision for loan losses increased to $195,000 for the third quarter compared with $12,000 for the prior quarter and $110,000 for the third quarter of 2017.  This resulted in the allowance for loan losses of $5.2 million or 0.98% of total loans on September 30, 2018 compared with $5.0 million or 0.98% of total loans for the prior quarter and $4.4 million or 0.90% of total loans on September 30, 2017.

Nonperforming assets were $9.0 million on September 30, 2018, compared with $9.1 million for the prior quarter and $10.8 million on September 30, 2017.  Included in nonperforming assets for the quarter were $7.6 million of nonperforming loans and $1.4 million of other real estate owned.  Net loan recoveries were $41,000 for the third quarter of 2018 compared with net loan charge-offs of $434,000 for the prior quarter and net loan recoveries of $39,000 for the third quarter of 2017.

Noninterest income was $1.3 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared with $1.6 million for the prior quarter and $1.3 million for the third quarter of 2017.  Noninterest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $4.8 million and $4.1 million, respectively.  The decline in noninterest income for the quarter compared to the prior quarter was due to the call of a pooled trust preferred security which resulted in a gain of $303,000 for the second quarter of 2018. 

Noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2018 was $5.5 million compared with $5.6 million for the prior quarter and $5.0 million for the third quarter of 2017.  Noninterest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $16.5 million and $15.6 million, respectively.  The increase in noninterest expense was the result of increases in incentives and commissions in 2018 and the reduction of performance based stock expense in the third quarter of 2017.

Shareholders' equity was $58.3 million on September 30, 2018 compared with $57.7 million for the prior quarter and $57.2 million on September 30, 2017.  Book value per common share was $15.44 on September 30, 2018 compared with $15.29 for the prior quarter and $15.20 on September 30, 2017.
