William A. Loving, Jr., President & CEO, commented, “Rapidly rising interest rates are tightening margins for all financial institutions, and we are no exception. Although our margin for the second quarter has changed minimally compared to second quarter 2022, our second quarter 2023 margin at 3.58% is down fifteen basis points compared to 3.73% for the 2022 full year. This margin compression has placed downward pressure on earnings; however, I am pleased with our overall financial results and reflecting slightly higher year-to-date revenue compared to 2022. A major component of the net income increase is continued balance sheet growth.

We continue to experience strong loan growth and year over year have increased the Dealer Finance portfolio $80.6 million, the Commercial portfolio $57.6 million, and the Residential Real Estate portfolio $25.6 million. During the second quarter, PCB was proud to be named a ‘Top Lender’ by the Independent Community Bankers Association (ICBA) for the Consumer/Mortgage segment. Ranked thirteenth in the nation among peers of similar asset size, our team was honored to be recognized for the combined Consumer and Mortgage loan growth over the prior year.

Building customer relationships while equipping our team with competitive products and services has been key in growing our deposit balance. Our financial results illustrate the efforts of our team, and we were once again proud to be publicly recognized for those efforts in two local contests. For the second year, PCB was honored to win the titles of ‘Best Bank’, ‘Best Mortgage Company’, and ‘Best Company to Work For’ in the Daily News Record’s Best of the Valley competition. Additionally, we were grateful to win gold for ‘Best Ag Lender’ and ‘Best Home Mortgage’ and silver for ‘Best Bank’ in Harrisonburg Radio Group’s Shenandoah Valley Best contest. I want to publicly thank our team for their delivery of PCB’s brand of community banking and allowing us to be recognized by the communities we serve.

Our team members continue to focus on deposit growth through relationship building and community involvement, and our brand of community banking is positively recognized. While the industry was impacted by the financial uncertainty during the first quarter of this year with many seeing deposit outflows, I am pleased to report that we continued to see deposit growth both on a year-over year basis, as well as when looking at the trailing twelve month results. I am confident that as we stay committed to fulfilling our mission, vision, and core values, success will continue to follow.”
