FAIRFAX, Va.--()--The Freedom Bank of Virginia (Bank) (Bulletin Board: FDVA.OB) earned a Net Profit Before Taxes of $452,617 for the quarter ending September 30, 2012, its fourteenth consecutive quarterly profit. Net Profit for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 was $618,321. Net Profit Before Taxes was $1,013,472 for the first nine months of 2012 compared to a Net Profit for the first nine months of 2011 of $1,420,358. The reduction in profit in 2012 versus 2011 was principally due to an increase in the provision for loan losses as well as expenses associated with hiring additional commercial lenders in the third quarter.

In 2012 the Bank made a decision to deregister its shares under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS). The Bank filed its application on June 26, 2012 and deregistration became effective September 26, 2012. The Bank’s requirement to file reports with the Federal Reserve including forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K has been suspended. However, the Bank will continue to provide quarterly press releases of financial performance and to post annual and quarterly financial reports on our website at www.freedombankva.com. As part of our effort to be more environmentally responsible, we will now mail out quarterly reports only upon request.
