TIMBERVILLE, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- F & M Bank Corp. (OTCQB: FMBM), parent company of Farmers & Merchants Bank, announces its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ending December 31, 2012 and its recently declared fourth quarter dividend.
Year to date net income for 2012 totaled $4.901 million, an increase of 4.54% over 2011 earnings which totaled $4.688 million. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $1.244 million, compared to $1.433 million of earnings for the same period in 2011.
Selected Financial Highlights: 2012 YTD 2011 YTD 2012 Q4 2011 Q4 -------- -------- -------- -------- Net Income (000's) $ 4,901 $ 4,688 $ 1,244 $ 1,433 Earnings per share 1.96 1.91 0.49 0.57 Net Interest Margin 3.95% 3.87% 4.03% 3.98% Allowance for loan losses 1.75% 1.54% 1.75% 1.54% Provision for loan losses (000's) $ 4,200 $ 4,000 $ 1,500 $ 900 Non-Performing Loans (000's) $ 13,386 $ 14,776 $ 13,386 $ 14,776 Equity to Assets 8.27% 8.15% 8.27% 8.15% Efficiency Ratio 54.03% 55.43% 50.82% 53.40%
Dean Withers, President and CEO, commented, "This is our third consecutive year of earnings improvement and, for the first time since 2005, we have achieved record earnings on a nominal basis. While we are pleased with these results, this level of earnings does not reflect our pre-recession performance relative to traditional measures of Return on Assets and Return on Equity." Withers continued, "We are cautiously optimistic that 2013 will result in the further, slow progress in reducing non-performing loans. As I stated in our last quarterly earnings announcement, we are seeing signs of modest improvement in both the local housing and commercial real estate markets. However, we still believe at this time that it is important to build our reserves, as there are still some borrowers that are struggling to recover from the lingering effects of the recession."
Withers stated, "Economic activity in our markets appears to be picking up, as we've seen an improvement in recent loan demand. This improved demand crosses multiple business lines, as we are seeing good growth in our Dealer Finance Division, strong interest in our new Fishersville Loan Production Office and improved loan demand in our established markets. On January 17, 2013, our Board of Directors declared a fourth quarter dividend of $0.17 per share. This is an increase of $.01 per share, compared to the prior year and prior quarter. Based on our most recent trade price of $16 per share, this dividend constitutes a 4.25% yield on an annualized basis. The dividend will be paid on February 8, 2013, to shareholders of record as of January 29, 2013." Highlights of the company's financial performance are included below.

And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
