2022 – High Growth and Strong Financial Performance
Our 2022 results were a strong end to what was a record year on several measures, surpassing $1.0 billion in total assets at December 31, 2022. We have been growing our Bank at a robust rate, and 2022 was the most profitable year in our Company’s history. ODNB Financial Corporation (the “Company” or “ODNB”), the holding company for Old Dominion National Bank (the “Bank”) continues to serve its growing number of customers across Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, Central Pennsylvania, and the Charlottesville, Virginia area.
In addition, we delivered our twelfth consecutive quarter of profitability for the quarter ended December 31, 2022, as we continued to grow total assets, gross loans and deposits to produce record net revenue. The organic loan growth was primarily driven by our high-performing commercial banking team fostering new client relationships, and their ability to bring prior business relationships to our Bank. This was supported by a back-office team of professionals dedicated to our client service model. Our talented team continues to navigate through the rapidly changing interest rate environment and uncertainties in the economy to maintain healthy net interest margins and pristine credit quality.
We formed our bank holding company effective July 1, 2022, providing us with more capital options to support our growing franchise, in addition to providing revenue generating opportunities. We are also coming off our successful completion of the Company’s oversubscribed $24.0 million subordinated debt offering in the third quarter of 2022, positioning us with a strong capital base for continued growth into 2023.
The success of our Bank has always been driven by our people, who provide highly responsive and personalized services to businesses, entrepreneurs and other leaders in the markets we serve. We are making solid progress in building our franchise, and we believe we are well positioned in our markets to continue to grow.
2021 – Record Earnings, Continued Growth and Stronger Balance Sheet
While maintaining laser focus on meeting the needs of our customers and communities during a challenging year for many across our nation in 2021, ODNB sustained its profitable growth trajectory, achieved record annual earnings, fortified its balance sheet, and maintained excellent credit quality metrics throughout the year.
ODNB secured $301 million in funding for more than 700 small businesses and nonprofits through the federal emergency Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) launched in 2020. ODNB funded $92 million in PPP loans in 2021 alone, after the U.S Small Business Administration (SBA) opened the program’s second round at the beginning of the year. Even as the industry neared completion of this temporary federal stimulus program funded through community banks, ODNB grew loans organically, with non-PPP lending reaching record levels by year-end.
In 2021, ODNB also appointed Robert Hubbell and William Reilly to its Board of Directors.
As a result of its continued strong financial performance and its drive to recruit and keep top-tier talent across the company, the Bank’s total assets have grown to $838 million as of December 31, 2021.
2020 – Record-Breaking Results for ODNB
Despite the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic and associated economic crisis presented, including a near-zero interest rate environment, ODNB achieved record financial results in 2020 by providing credit and capital to their business and individual customers when they needed it most, including through an expanded residential mortgage lending platform and PPP lending. ODNB’s loan portfolio grew by 88%, a key driver that enabled ODNB to achieve its first full year of profitability in 2020. As a result of ODNB's amazing growth, the Washington Business Journal named the bank among the regions fastest growing companies.
ODNB also appointed Daniel Harrington to serve as vice chairman of the Board and Former Washington, D.C. Mayor Anthony Williams and PA State Senator Jacob Corman III as directors of the bank.
Even in the midst of a pandemic, ODNB continued to find ways to support its communities. As a locally owned and managed bank, ODNB is a proud supporter of programs benefitting the people and communities that we serve. Among the incredible organizations that we support is the Organization for Autism Research (OAR), an Arlington, VA-based nonprofit that uses science to address the social, educational, and treatment concerns of self-advocates, parents, professionals, and caregivers in the autism community. In addition to serving as a corporate sponsor of OAR’s 2020 Active for Autism 5k, several of our team members participated in the virtual race, helping OAR exceed its fundraising goal for this event.
2019 – A Pivotal Year for ODNB
In 2019, ODNB achieved significant balance sheet growth designed to provide the scale necessary to reach profitability. During 2019, the bank grew total assets by 62%, loans by 60% and deposits by 67%. ODNB also generated total revenue of $11.9 million, up 78% from the prior year.
As part of our strategic plan, ODNB expanded into the attractive Central Pennsylvania market, with the opening of our first Centre1st Bank branch in State College during 2019. Led by ODNB President Jack Infield, Centre1st made quick progress in attracting local business and consumer customers, supported by Central Pennsylvania-based executives, directors and shareholders who are connected and involved in the local business community.
During 2019, ODNB also took important steps to strengthen its team, executive management group and board leadership. Vishal Gandhi joined ODNB as SVP, Commercial Lender, Todd Rowley signed on as our Capital Region Market Executive, and Rick Schoen joined ODNB as SVP, Commercial Lender. In addition, we announced a strategic partnership with the DC-area founders of the former VisionBank (In Organization), many of whom became important shareholders of and advocates for ODNB, including Rick Horn, who joined ODNB as Executive Vice President and General Counsel. ODNB also strengthened its Board of Directors through the additions of Joseph DiPasquale, Alfred Moses, Jim Abdo and Jennifer Bognet in 2019.
In addition, ODNB successfully completed a $22.4 million private placement offering of common equity at $13.00 per share, or 138% of book value, in the fourth quarter of 2019. Investors in the offering were largely business leaders in the Washington, D.C. metro area. The capital supported the community bank’s continued organic growth and expansion throughout its Washington metro, Central Pennsylvania and Charlottesville markets.
