Bank of Virginia Reports Profit for the First Quarter of 2012

MIDLOTHIAN, Va., May 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bank of Virginia (the "Bank") (Nasdaq:BOVA) (, reported net income of $345,000, or $0.03 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, compared to a net loss of $1.8 million, or $0.16 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. The quarterly earnings were boosted by recoveries on loans previously charged down, a reduction in loss reserves maintained against the Bank's loan portfolio, and gains on sale of securities.

"These results confirm the success of the Bank's credit risk management strategy and the renewed pulse of the Central Virginia regional economy," said Jack Zoeller, Chairman and CEO. "We are making a concerted effort to partner with our customers who have survived and, in many cases, thrived in a down economy.   Our $40 million loan campaign has been well received by borrowers who appreciate our responsiveness and the insights afforded by our rebuilt lending staff. The Bank's proactive but disciplined approach is bearing fruit for customers and shareholders alike."

"We are especially pleased with the improvement in asset quality and reduction in our cost of funds, as they reflect the hard work of our staff, management and board of directors," said Jack Zoeller, Chairman and CEO. "We are charting an aggressive path toward sustained profitability that will lay a foundation for the longer-term strategic growth of the Bank."
