"Operating performance for the quarter was strong, reflecting successful execution on multiple business fronts," said Michael L. Scudder, Chairman of the Board, President, and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "Our solid commercial loan production, the benefits of earning asset growth and higher interest rates on margins, controlled spending and tax reform resulted in comparative improvement in our underlying operating performance of 15% and 39% compared to the prior quarter and a year ago, respectively. Additionally, performance for the quarter was aided by a net $0.06 per share, largely due to the recognition of certain income tax benefits modestly offset by costs attendant to our Delivering Excellence initiative."

Mr. Scudder continued, "As we look ahead, our focus remains centered on helping our clients achieve financial success, meeting those needs with the superior service which they have come to expect and which sets us apart. Continued execution on our Delivering Excellence initiative, the strength of our core deposit foundation and business momentum leave us well positioned to benefit from a growing economy and evolving rate environment."
