We are gratified that the company's focus on increasing shareholder value through prudent asset growth, and improved asset quality is reflected by consistent growth in our book value per share and shareholders' equity. "Our second quarter and first half year-over-year earnings comparisons in part reflect the investments we have made in new hires to drive revenue in future quarters, technology to enhance the company's capabilities, and branch upgrades to accommodate increased business and provide a welcoming environment for customers. We are further streamlining our retail banking business line, and initiatives we've taken have contributed to the reduction in our funding cost and gains in consumer lending. We recently launched a mortgage banking division, and we expect traction in this area to accelerate in future periods. Our growing consumer service capability is complementing our traditional commercial banking business, which remains a strong focus."
