"Commercial loan growth and mortgage loan production volume both continued to be strong during the quarter. Outstanding commercial loan balances were up $290 million and mortgage loan production grew $240 million," said President and CEO Stan Lybarger. "Fee-based revenues grew $2.8 million over the first quarter, despite the impact of higher interest rates in the second quarter.
