President's Statement

It is with great pleasure I announce today that Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc. is declaring a cash dividend of $0.05 per share on our common stock based upon both our results of operations for the 4th quarter and year ended December 31, 2010, the results of which are summarized above.  While 2010 presented us with asset quality, economic, regulatory, and legislative challenges, we still managed an improvement in net income available to common shareholders of $5,043,000, or $1.45 per common share, over our 2009 results.  The success of 2010 versus 2009 is attributed to better overall performance in asset quality, net interest income improvement as a result of solid deposit growth, and a mission-critical-only spending policy.
