Key Balance Sheet Highlights:
“We are very pleased with our strong financial performance in the second quarter of 2019,” says Laurence S. Bolchoz, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and the Bank. “We experienced dramatic asset and deposit growth of $36 million by continuing our focus on establishing quality retail and commercial deposit relationships in all of our markets. Our deposit growth for the quarter was bolstered by a large temporary deposit of approximately $8 million on the last day of the quarter. Excluding this temporary deposit, we still had $28 million in deposit and asset growth figures for the quarter, which is quite significant. Our diligent focus on deposit generation continues to provide good results in a very competitive environment. We also had solid loan portfolio growth of $6 million in the second quarter and $25 million for the first six months of 2019. We continue to grow our loan portfolio while maintaining very strong asset quality as evidenced by our excellent credit quality metrics. I am very proud of our entire CCNB team for the way they continue to demonstrate daily our “We Can Do That” spirit by going the extra mile to provide exemplary customer service to our clients. As a true community bank, we are eager to assist our clients in meeting their financial needs while we enhance value for our shareholders,” says Bolchoz.
