Gerard R. Host, President and CEO, stated, “2012 was a year of significant achievement for Trustmark, particularly in light of prevailing economic conditions. We continued to build upon and expand customer relationships, the success of which is reflected in our strong financial performance. Thanks in part to the low interest rate environment, the profitability of our mortgage banking business reached record levels. We also experienced increased profitability in our insurance and wealth management businesses. Credit quality significantly improved in our banking business which, in turn, increased profitability. During the year, we completed an acquisition in Florida and announced plans to acquire Mobile, Alabama-based BancTrust Financial Group, which is expected to close during the first quarter of 2013 pending regulatory approval. We also made investments in technology designed to increase revenue and improve efficiency. 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.”
