The EPS growth rate, as it is typically called, is usually expressed as a percentage, which at this time is hard to estimate, but revenue growth has been -0.30 % over the last twelve months. The higher the EPS growth rate, the higher the value that is added to shareholders and a good reflection on the performance of the management at C&F Financial Corporation.

C&F Financial Corp through its subsidiaries offers banking and related financial services to both individuals and businesses.
