Virginia Commerce Bancorp Third Quarter 2011 Net Income Falls

Common Shareholders will get less per diluted common share as Arlington-based Virginia Commerce Bancorp (Nasdaq: VCBI) posted a slightly lower net income in its third quarter 2011 financial results compared to the same period a year ago.

The parent company of Virginia Commerce Bank reported a net income of $5.2 million in the third quarter ended September 30, 2011 or $0.17 cents per diluted common share compared to a net income of $5.7 million or $0.20 cents per diluted common share in the third quarter 2010.
