“We are gratified by our strong growth in loans and deposits as we enter into the fourth quarter of 2016,” stated David W. Pijor, chairman, president and CEO. “Our team of loan and deposit relationship managers continue to expand their reach and our quality bankers and technology enable us to continue to grow efficiently.”
Total assets increased to $837.0 million, compared with $682.1 million as of September 30, 2016, and 2015, respectively, an increase of $154.9 million, or 22.7%. Loans receivable totaled $687.7 million as of September 30, 2016, compared with $562.4 million as of September 30, 2015, an increase of $125.3 million, or 22.3%. For the quarter, loans increased $23.6 million, or 14.2% on an annualized basis.
Total deposits increased to $729.2 million as of September 30, 2016, compared with $596.2 million as of September 30, 2015, an increase of $133.0 million, or 22.3%. Noninterest-bearing deposits increased to $170.7 million from $121.3 million as of September 30, 2016, and 2015, respectively, an increase of $49.2 million, or 40.8%. Noninterest-bearing deposits comprised 23.4% and 20.3% of total deposits at September 30, 2016, and 2015, respectively. Wholesale deposits totaled $60.7 million as of September 30, 2016, compared with $52.5 million as of September 30, 2015, representing only 8.3% and 8.8% of total deposits for the respective periods. The increase in core deposits, and specifically, noninterest-bearing deposits, is primarily attributable to the Company’s relationship-banking strategy with our commercial, not-for-profit and municipal customers.

Net interest income increased 4.1% on an annualized basis compared with the second quarter of 2016 and includes a full quarter of the Company’s $25 million, 6% subordinated debt issued on June 20, 2016. The Company’s net interest margin was 3.47% and 3.63% for the quarters ended September 30, 2016, and 2015, respectively. On a linked quarter basis, the margin decreased to 3.47% from 3.57%, primarily due to the subordinated debt issuance noted above.
Noninterest expenses increased $355 thousand, or 9.5% to $4.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, compared with the quarter ended September 30, 2015. The efficiency ratio improved to 56.9%, compared with 61.5%, for the quarters ended September 30, 2016, and 2015, respectively.
The Company’s pre-provision net revenue increased $760 thousand to $3.1 million from $2.3 million, or 32.7% for the quarters ended September 30, 2016, and 2015, respectively. The improved performance is attributable to strong loan growth and continued operating efficiencies for the period.
Asset quality remains sound as nonperforming assets and loans 90 days or more past due totaled only $73 thousand, or 0.01% of total assets. The Company recognized charge-offs totaling $1.0 million related to the disposition of three nonaccrual loans. The Company had specific reserves in excess of the amounts charged-off related to these loans and will diligently pursue further recoveries. FVCBank continues its credit discipline of monitoring the loan portfolio to identify issues early.
