Craig M. Dwight, President and CEO, stated: “Horizon’s record quarterly and nine-month results once again demonstrated our ability to grow in spite of the less than robust economic conditions. Our commitment to a balanced revenue stream has continued to support earnings growth and has enabled us to build our capital position and return some of this income to shareholders through increased dividends. Redeeming the Treasury Department’s investment under the Capital Purchase Program also enabled us to increase our dividend to shareholders.”
