“While assets have dipped slightly (1.07%), our earning engine is strong and continues to provide us the necessary flexibility to address any developing credit issues swiftly and in the best interest of both the Bank and our clients,” she said. “It should be noted that the change in net income overall was positively impacted by the reduced need in provision for loan loss for the comparable periods – $637,000 for YTD June 30, 2011 compared to $2,122,000 for YTD June 30, 2010.”
Gurney continued, “Our credit portfolio continues to improve, as demonstrated by the fact that non-performing loans to total loans have decreased to 2.32% (from 4.84% at June 30, 2010) and non-performing assets to total assets are currently at 1.66% (from 3.43% for the same period last year). Both are strong indicators that MVB has turned a very positive corner.”
Mission Valley continues to far exceed all requirements as a well-capitalized institution with a Tier 1 Risk Based Capital to Assets Ratio of 18.2%, providing significant insulation to assist in managing whatever asset quality issues that may arise as our community continues to rebuild.
Gurney concluded, “Although we remain cautious, we continue to see the early signs of steady improvement in the economy and we trust that 2011 will maintain its course as a much improved year for our Bank and our clients. We look forward to seeing the positive impact of this continued steady improvement of our economy on the financial performance of our clients, our company and our community.”
