Timothy T. O’Dell, President and CEO, commented, “We are pleased with our consistently improving performance and increasing earnings. During 2018, net loans grew by $144 million which contributed to increasing net income before taxes by 54% year over year. Fourth quarter results also began to reflect returns from investing earlier in building our residential mortgage lending business. Increased volumes of saleable mortgage loans gave a lift to Noninterest income which more than doubled during the year. We believe that we are well positioned to continue this strong earnings growth performance into 2019, benefitting from increasing scale as well as growth in our fee income businesses, including home mortgage and SBA lending volumes. In addition, we are gaining business opportunities from our growing presence in the Cincinnati market. Cincinnati is our 4th and newest major metro market, which includes Columbus, Cleveland, and Akron/Canton metro markets, along with our two community banks operating in the Columbiana County market. We are proud of the excellent performance gains during 2018, and very bullish about our business prospects and opportunities for 2019.”

Our profitable growth is a direct result of the talent, determination and success driven nature of our management team. We have built a proven team as demonstrated by the fourth quarter and year-to-date results for 2018. My hat is off to the entire team.”
