“HomeStreet's strong earnings in the fourth quarter concluded what has been a gratifying year for our company and our shareholders,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Mark K. Mason. “Our many accomplishments over the last year included the successful completion of our initial public offering, record earnings and returns on equity and assets, significant growth in mortgage originations and market share, significant improvement in asset quality, the successful restart of portfolio lending in each of our traditional commercial lending lines, and expansion of our deposit and lending branch networks. While we have been, and expect to continue to be successful in growing our mortgage lending business, we are also focused on the long term goal of business diversification. Toward that goal, we have made and we expect to continue to make substantial investments in our commercial and consumer businesses through new branches, increased staffing, new products and services, and related infrastructure improvements, and we are already seeing the return on these investments.”
