Joseph B. Bower, Jr., President and CEO, stated, “We are pleased to announce another quarter that reflects the earnings power of our Corporation.

Mr. Bower went on to say, “It is very exciting for us to bring our banking model to Roanoke and southwest Virginia. Our expansion continues to provide the Corporation with organic growth and positive capital management, without the disruption of culture that mergers create. With this new market, along with our existing presence in Buffalo, Cleveland, Columbus and Erie, we believe our model has years of built-in opportunities for growth.”

Executive Summary

  • In July 2021, the Corporation expanded its footprint by entering the Roanoke, Virginia market through the establishment of its newest brand, Ridge View Bank. Ridge View Bank’s focus is on commercial lending, cash management and private banking. A loan production office will open for business in August 2021, in Roanoke.
  • Also during the second quarter of 2021, the Corporation sold $85 million aggregate principal amount of its 3.25% fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes due 2031 (the “2031 Notes”) to certain eligible purchasers in a private offering in reliance on the exemption from the registration requirements of Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the provisions of Rule 506 of Regulation D thereunder. The Corporation intends to use the net proceeds to, among other things, redeem its existing $50 million in subordinated indebtedness, which indebtedness is redeemable on or after October 15, 2021.

  • At June 30, 2021, total deposits of $4.5 billion increased 7.7%, or 15.6% annualized, from December 31, 2020, primarily due to organic growth and the impact of government stimulus initiatives.

(1) Management uses non-GAAP financial information in its analysis of the Corporation’s performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide a greater understanding of ongoing operations, enhance comparability of results of operations with prior periods and show the effects of significant gains and charges in the periods presented. The Corporation’s management believes that investors may use these non-GAAP measures to analyze the Corporation’s financial performance without the impact of unusual items or events that may obscure trends in the Corporation’s underlying performance. This non-GAAP data should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and is not a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. Limitations associated with non-GAAP financial measures include the risks that persons might disagree as to the appropriateness of items included in these measures and that different companies might calculate these measures differently. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures is provided below (dollars in thousands, except per share data).          
(2) Beginning with the quarter ended December 31, 2020 the Corporation adopted ASU 2016-13. Prior to the quarter ended December 31, 2020, the results were based on incurred loss methodology and these results have not been restated.          
(3) Nonperforming TDR loans are also included in the balance of non-accrual loans in the previous table.
