Americas United Bank (OTCBB: AUNB) today announced its unaudited 2011 third-quarter results.
“The third-quarter results reflect a quarterly operating profit of $233,000 or $0.08 per basic share. Total assets decreased to $102.0 million. The actions taken during the last few months of reducing expenses, exiting selected business lines, decreasing non-core relationships and improving credit quality have resulted in a trend of two successive quarters of profitability. We continue to look forward to our future and successes of the Bank and its customers,” said Adriana M. Boeka, President and Chief Executive Officer.
Boeka continued, “The management team will spend the remainder of 2011 focused on organic growth, cost control, and balance sheet management. Revenue growth is the primary driver and the team will target the improvement of net interest margin and profitability. One aspect of the strategy will be to deploy excess liquidity in order to maximize the earning asset return. We believe there are deposit growth opportunities in the marketplace and we seek new profitable client relationships.”
“Our team has begun the next phase of our growth and development and we are focused on providing outstanding service to our existing customers and building market share. We remain optimistic about our future,” said Manuel Remon, Chairman.Third-quarter financial highlights include:
