MVB Financial Corp.

FAIRMONT, W.Va. — MVB Financial Corp. and its bank-holding company, MVB Bank Inc., announced on Aug. 14 its quarterly results for the period ending June 30.

Second-quarter 2012 net income of $817,000 increased by 28.4 percent compared to the second quarter of 2011.

MVB’s net interest income was $4.2 million for the second quarter of 2012, an increase of $857,000, or 25.7 percent from the same time period in 2011 resulting, in part, from continued firm commercial loan demand, as well as in mortgage lending, including a spike in refinancing created by historic low 30-year mortgage rates.

Deposits increased by $108.8 million, or 31.2 percent, to $458 million for the first six months of 2012 compared to the first half of 2011.


Despite the continued gain in deposits, interest expense decreased by $16,000 to $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2012. Total interest income in the second quarter of 2012 was $5.4 million, an increase of $841,000, or 18.4 percent compared to the second quarter of 2011 due primarily to continued growth in loan volume.

MVB also recently announced plans to open the first of four new branches during the next year.

This fall, MVB Bank will open the first new branch in downtown Clarksburg, W.Va.’s historic district, the first new bank branch to open in Harrison County’s financial hub in 15 years.

Other new branches are planned for Morgantown, Fairmont and Martinsburg, W.Va.
