Net income for the year ended Dec. 31, 2019 continues to be positively impacted by an increase in net interest income due to a higher volume of loans and an increase in the overall yield on the loan portfolio. Interest expense increased for the same period and can be attributed to an increase in the cost of borrowings expense and the rates paid on deposit liabilities. Net income for the same period was negatively impacted by an increase in the provision for probable loan losses due to a specific reserve and subsequent charge-off of $7.5 million, net of tax, on a relationship that was secured by real property on which car dealerships are operated.

The reformed tax laws have benefitted us, the economy and the communities we serve. We are confident in the strength of our balance sheet and our strong capital position, which continue to be enhanced by our earnings success for over 50 years. We continue to exceed most of our peers based on Bank Holding Company Performance Reports compiled by the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council,” said Dennis E.
