“Our financial results continue to be very good and we are being recognized by banking organizations as a top performer in our industry. However, we are taking precautions for the future as the national and local economic situation is certainly precarious,” said Mark Francis, President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Our staff showed their commitment and dedication to our local communities by working around the clock to submit over 450 Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Plan loans during the second quarter getting funds to businesses as quickly as possible. We’ve kept our doors open throughout this challenging time and we’ve proven that we have the best bankers in town,” added Francis.
Asset quality continues to be excellent as only .04% of total assets are considered to be non-performing. By comparison, the average was .88% of total assets for the Bank’s national peer group, based on data provided as of March 31, 2020 (the most recent data available). The company has set aside $3.0 million in loan loss reserves to protect it from future economic uncertainties and is prepared to increase that amount substantially with little to no effect on continuing revenues should economic conditions were to erode. Golden Valley continues to be a well-capitalized bank and far exceeds minimum regulatory requirements. More complete financial information can be viewed on the Bank’s website.
