Gerard R. Host, President and CEO, stated, “Trustmark continued to achieve solid financial performance in the second quarter. Total revenue for the quarter exceeded $130 million due in part to solid performance in our banking, mortgage banking, wealth management and insurance businesses. Credit quality continued to improve as evidenced by significantly lower nonaccrual loans and provisioning levels. In May, we announced plans to acquire BancTrust Financial Group, a $2.0 billion financial institution based in Mobile, Alabama. This transaction, which is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2012, is subject to approval by regulatory authorities and BancTrust’s shareholders. Thanks to our dedicated associates, solid profitability and strong capital base, Trustmark remains well-positioned to continue meeting the needs of our customers and creating value for our shareholders.”

Credit Quality

  • Classified and criticized loans declined $20.7 million and $35.2 million, respectively, relative to the prior quarter
  • Allowance for loan losses represented 186.5% of nonperforming loans, excluding impaired loans

Trustmark continued to experience significant improvements in credit quality. Nonperforming loans totaled $99.7 million at June 30, 2012, a decline of 5.8% from the prior quarter and 17.6% from the prior year. Foreclosed other real estate experienced similar improvement, declining 2.7% from the prior quarter and 18.1% from levels one year earlier to total $73.7 million. Collectively, nonperforming assets totaled $173.4 million at June 30, 2012, the lowest level since year end 2008. All of the above metrics exclude acquired loans and other real estate covered by FDIC loss-share agreements.
