We have added significantly to our securities and student loan portfolios and have experienced strong commercial loan growth volume over the past few months. In addition, we recruited three experienced officers who will give an added boost to our asset originations in future periods."Mr. Zoeller continued, "To help fund our growth, we opened two new branch office locations in the Richmond metro market last month. Although our additional lenders and branches will slightly constrain profitability in the short term, they are an important part of our strategy to build sustained core profitability in 2015 and beyond."
