Christopher J. Murphy III, Chairman of 1st Source, commented, “This was an excellent quarter for 1st Source Corporation and I’m pleased we continue to grow organically, one client at a time. The Bank broke ground on a new location in Lafayette, Indiana, our consumer loan area had robust demand although new mortgage production slowed, and our year to date average deposits and loans and leases increased 3.95% and 7.09% respectively.”
“Credit was a major contributor to the strong quarterly financial performance. We saw the direct benefit of operating with strong capital and reserves giving us the capability of working through problems with our customers over the long term. During the quarter we recovered $2.07 million in interest payments and expense recoveries from clients we have been working with for as long as 10 or more years as they restored their businesses to strong operating positions. Our financial strength is an advantage for our clients as it gives us the ability to work with troubled businesses over the long term - helping them return to health, retain jobs, and make the communities we serve stronger. We believe this is another distinct advantage of 1st Source. Our overall credit quality continues to improve, leading to a recovery of loan and lease loss provision for the quarter. Of course, we are ever mindful of the volatility in markets around the world that can have an adverse impact on our clients here, and of the increased pressure on interest rate margins.”
