Combined with continued strong asset quality and diligence in managing our balance sheet, this controlled growth will continue to create shareholder value for the long term. Because of the confidence in our strategy, the Board of Directors approved an increase in our quarterly dividend from $0.05 to $0.07 per common share, as announced in January."
