Louise A. Walker, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are pleased to report that we have started the year with positive financial results. Asset quality continues to experience improvement, requiring less provision for loan losses, reduced loan write downs, and less need for expenditures in the areas of collection and legal activities. Coupled with our reduction in Other Operating Expense, we made nice strides in improving our Other Operating Income; loan servicing income, electronic delivery channel income, and gains on the sales of other real estate owned were the categories that saw the greatest improvement. Furthermore, the Company’s relationship management business model is the foundation for our success. Market share, particularly in the area of business core deposits, continues to grow, demonstrating what we believe stems from both trust and confidence in our Company, as well as an indication that the economy may be recovering.”
