James Rickard, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our operating results for the first quarter reflect the progress our Company has made in several areas. First, we continue to maintain a stable and improved net interest margin versus both our Company’s historical average and our peer group1 for the first quarter of 2011. Second, we remain committed to working through a challenging credit cycle. Credit trends have shown stability and slight improvement in recent quarters. In addition to credit resolutions, our loan officers have originated $42.0 million in loans to local businesses over the past two quarters, which is both an encouraging bright spot and a margin driver.”
Rickard continued, “We continue to invest in new technologies to improve all aspects of our business. Our Company’s drive to improve process efficiencies, analytics, margin, and ultimately profitability are rooted in each investment we have made to move this Company forward. These new investments paired with the talent, energy, and passion of our team members will be the key drivers of our success.”
