The Bank reports total assets of $322 million, gross loans of $256 million and total deposits of $288.4 million. The Bank remains very well capitalized. Loan quality remains very strong.
“The Bank’s performance is definitely trending well,” said Jon Holtaway, co-portfolio manager for Ategra. “I’ve had a good relationship with MainStreet’s leadership team since the very beginning, and I can see that they are building a strong core for future growth.”
MainStreet operates five branches in Herndon, Fairfax, Fairfax City, McLean and Clarendon. In addition, MainStreet has 55,000 free ATMs and an online banking solution called “airbanking®”.
