  • The firm’s efficiency ratio, excluding the $2.0 million of securities gains, $1.4 million in ORE expense and $2.1 million of charges related to the restructuring of $60.0 million of FHLB advances, was 58.8 percent for the fourth quarter of 2012.

“Growing high quality loans in the commercial segments of our markets is the foundation for continued acceleration of operating leverage and profitability,” Turner said. “During 2012, our relationship managers continued to penetrate our markets as evidenced by the 12.8 percent increase in loans this year. Also, the addition of several experienced commercial lenders in 2011 and 2012 bolstered our ability to grow organically and move market share in 2012 and should contribute significantly to our anticipated loan growth in 2013.”
