In his own words: We reported strong results grounded in positive economic trends and sustained incremental organic growth across our businesses,”
He further talked about the increase in net interest income. It was observed that apart from paycheck protection program loans there was growth in the portfolio as he said :
“ Excluding the impact of Paycheck Protection Program loans, we grew the total loan portfolio by 2.2% from June 30th and our loan pipelines remain healthy. Net interest income increased, and we remain focused on the optimal investment of excess liquidity.”
Well, it’s not that they did not face any difficulty, he also mentions that there was a prominent increase in investment but they managed everything well. He explained by mentioning how expenses were going up in the quarter but they managed to generate strong noninterest income driven by their insurance and wealth subsidiaries and investments in limited partnerships, resulting in an efficiency ratio of 58%.
On the other hand, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer W. Jack Plants II also had something to add as he talked about the noninterest expenses. Noninterest expenses were significantly higher than the second quarter of 2021 with a major portion of the increase attributable to salaries and benefits. But now improvements are in action which will probably allow an increase in about $690 thousand in commission and incentive compensation.
