"We continue to work with our advisors to meet all regulatory requirements, and our regularly scheduled annual exam was in the second quarter last year," said Martin. "With more than 20 years of experience as a bank regulator with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, I fully understand the complexities of this process and believe we have made substantial progress in complying with our regulatory order. Our three top priorities are to improve the regulatory status of the bank, to prevent any further deterioration of book value, and to achieve profitability in the near term and maximize profitability in the long term."
