Additional Discussion and Analysis

Consolidated net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, was $5.3 million and $9.8 million, respectively, representing increases of $0.9 million and $1.5 million, or 21% and 17%, respectively, over the $4.4 million and $8.3 million earned during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively. Net income per diluted common share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 was $0.40 and $0.74, respectively, representing increases of 18% and 16%, respectively, over the $0.34 and $0.64 per diluted common share earning during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively.

As of June 30, 2017, total assets were $2.1 billion, compared to $2.0 billion as of December 31, 2016, and $1.9 billion as of June 30, 2016. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, total loans held for investment increased $104.2 million or 6.8% to $1.6 billion. This increase is attributable to organic loan growth from our existing lending team. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, total deposits increased $222.0 million or 14.6% to $1.7 billion. The increase in deposits is primarily attributable to deposit growth in our branch network and commercial customers.

The net interest margin was 3.51% and 3.49% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively, compared to 3.37% and 3.44% for the same periods in 2016. This increase is primarily attributable to increases in market rates. On a linked quarter basis, our net interest margin increased from 3.47% for the three months ended March 31, 2017, to 3.51% for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The Company remains focused on its pricing discipline on both sides of the balance sheet and on all factors contributing to net income.

The adjusted allowance for loan losses to adjusted total loans held for investment, which includes credit purchase accounting marks, was 1.05% as of June 30, 2017, compared to 1.22% as of June 30, 2016. This decrease is attributable to net charge-offs of $1.4 million, which had been substantially reserved for previously, and credit mark accretion during the quarter ended June 30, 2017. A reconciliation of the allowance for loan losses and related ratios to the adjusted allowance for loan losses and related ratios is included herein. Non-performing assets increased by $10.5 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2017, primarily due to the default of two commercial real estate loans, related to a common guarantor, totaling $13.1 million. The Company is pursuing collection efforts on these loans and believes the collateral to be of sufficient value to protect the Company against loss with tenant rent payments sufficient to service the loans. As a result of these payment defaults, the ratio of non-performing assets to total assets increased to 0.92% as of June 30, 2017, compared to 0.71% as of June 30, 2016.

Non-interest income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, was $6.6 million and $11.4 million, respectively, each representing a decrease of $1.9 million compared to the $8.5 million and $13.3 million of non-interest income for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2016, respectively. Non-interest income was negatively impacted by higher interest rates which resulted in lower mortgage origination volume during the first half of 2017, compared to the same period last year. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, the mortgage subsidiary originated $200.0 million and $314.3 million in total mortgage loan volume, a slight decrease from the $216.9 million and $339.6 million in total mortgage volume originated during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively. As of June 30, 2017, the Company's wealth management business unit had $313.8 million in assets under management, an increase of 28.0% over the same period last year. The Company did not sell any investment securities during 2017; however, during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company sold investment securities resulting in $1.1 million and $1.2 million, respectively, of gains on the sale of investments.

Non-interest expense decreased during the three months ended June 30, 2017, by $0.5 million, and increased during the six months ended June 30, 2017, by $0.7 million compared to the same periods ended June 30, 2016, primarily as a result of $0.5 million in merger expenses incurred during the second quarter of 2017 and a one-time $1.0 million debt termination expense incurred during the second quarter of 2016.

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, total shareholders' equity increased $10.9 million, or 5.7%, to $203.6 million due primarily to earnings and additional paid in capital from the exercise of stock options offset by dividends of $1.8 million and changes in accumulated other comprehensive loss. Tangible book value per common share increased to $14.58 as of June 30, 2017, compared to $13.62 as of June 30, 2016. The Company remains "well-capitalized" under the regulatory framework.
