First Midwest Bancorp (NASDAQ: FMBI) reported Q4 EPS of $0.33, $0.06 better than the analyst estimate of $0.27.

"The best of First Midwest has been on display in what has been an unprecedented and turbulent period for our country," said Michael L. Scudder, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "While the year's financial performance was impacted by the severe economic conditions caused by both the rapid onset and the magnitude of the pandemic, I am extremely proud of our 2,100 colleagues, who represent First Midwest each day. Amid the demands of a global health crisis, they were able to be agile, resilient and successfully pivot within our dramatically changed operating environment, working tirelessly to help support our clients, communities, and each other."

Mr. Scudder continued, "Importantly, earnings momentum for the quarter showed continued improvement, reflecting higher revenue, lower credit costs and controlled expenses. The quarter also saw the benefit of efforts undertaken to better position our balance sheet and efficiently manage our business to navigate today's low rate environment."

Mr. Scudder concluded, "As we look forward, we expect economic recovery to continue in 2021, complemented by COVID-19 vaccinations and execution of the federal government's fiscal policy. As these unfold, we remain centered on our collective drive to help our clients achieve financial success. While challenges certainly remain, times such as these also present an opportunity to build on that drive, leveraging our financial strength to best serve the needs of our clients and communities, as well as grow and enhance the value of our franchise."
