“BOK Financial is pleased to announce results for the first quarter of 2012,” said President and CEO Stan Lybarger. “The year has started with strong growth in revenues and loans.

In addition, net loans charged-off and nonperforming asset balances continue to decline. The Company’s sustained performance and strong capital position allows us to increase our quarterly cash dividend. This is the seventh consecutive annual increase since we paid our first cash dividend in 2005.”

  • Net interest revenue increased to $173.6 million for the first quarter of 2012 from $171.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net interest margin was 3.19% for the first quarter of 2012 compared to 3.20% for the fourth quarter of 2011.
