Integrity Bank Reports the Continuation of Unprecedented Growth Through Close of Second Quarter
Camp Hill, PA (January 15, 2004)---Integrity Bank closed its second full quarter of operations continuing a record-breaking level of growth in cumulative loans and deposits, unprecedented by any de novo bank in the history of Pennsylvania banking.
The dynamic growth has vastly accelerated the expected timeframe to projected profitability. The bank ended its second full quarter with assets of $47 million, loans of $32 million, and more importantly, closed $52 million of loans during the first six months of operations excluding numerous secondary market loans. The bank’s high level of growth has positively impacted the operating results which were a loss of $185,000 that included a $108,000 allocation to loan loss reserves. “This unprecedented momentum and level of success further documents our firm belief that the area needed a service-oriented, community bank with local control and a deep understanding of, and connection to, the area’s business and banking needs.” said Jim Gibson, Integrity Bank’s President and CEO.
