|SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES [Abstract]
Headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation (Nasdaq: AUB) is the holding company for Atlantic Union Bank. Atlantic Union Bank has 114 branches and approximately 130 ATMs located throughout Virginia, and in portions of Maryland and North Carolina as of June 30, 2022. Certain non-bank financial services affiliates of Atlantic Union Bank include: Atlantic Union Equipment Finance, Inc., which provides equipment financing; Atlantic Union Financial Consultants, LLC, which provides brokerage services; and Union Insurance Group, LLC, which offers various lines of insurance products.
Effective June 30, 2022, the Company completed the sale of DHFB, which was formerly a subsidiary of the Bank.
The unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. The unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP for interim financial information and follow general practice within the banking industry. Accordingly, the unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements; however, in the opinion of management all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the results of the interim periods presented have been made. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year or any other period.
The unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s 2021 Form 10-K. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current period presentation.
|Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash and Cash Equivalents
For purposes of reporting cash flows, the Company defines cash and cash equivalents as cash, cash due from banks, interest-bearing deposits in other banks, short-term money market investments, other interest-bearing deposits, and federal funds sold.
Restricted cash is disclosed in Note 7 “Commitments and Contingencies” in Part I, Item I of this Quarterly Report and is comprised of cash maintained at various correspondent banks as collateral for the Company’s derivative portfolio and is included in interest-bearing deposits in other banks in the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets. In addition, the Company is required to maintain reserve balances with the FRB based on the type and amount of deposits; however, on March 15, 2020 the Federal Reserve announced that reserve requirement ratios would be reduced to zero percent effective March 26, 2020 due to economic conditions, which eliminated the reserve requirement for all depository institutions. The reserve requirement is still at zero percent as of June 30, 2022.
|Accrued Interest Receivable
Accrued Interest Receivable
The Company has elected to exclude accrued interest from the amortized cost basis in its determination of the ALLL, as well as the ACL reserve for securities. Accrued interest receivable totaled $44.5 million and $43.3 million on , $8.2 million and $7.0 million on , and $14.4 million and $14.5 million on at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, and is included in “Other assets” on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company’s policy is to write off accrued interest receivable through reversal of interest income when it becomes probable the Company will not be able to collect the accrued interest. For the quarters ended June 30, 2022 and June 30, 2021, accrued interest receivable write offs were not material to the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
Operating segments are components of a business about which separate financial information is available and evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision makers in deciding how to allocate resources and assessing performance. The Bank is the Company’s only reportable operating segment upon which management makes decisions regarding how to allocate resources and assess performance. While the Company’s chief operating decision makers do have some limited financial information about its various financial products and services, that information is not complete since it does not include a full allocation of revenue, costs, and capital from key corporate functions; therefore, the Company evaluates financial performance on the Company-wide basis. Management continues to evaluate these business units for separate reporting as facts and circumstances change.
