Christopher J. Murphy III, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased that the strong start in 2023 continued throughout the second quarter. In the second quarter of 2023, average loans grew $104.95 million, up 1.74% while average deposits grew $70.08 million, up 1.02% from the previous quarter. Credit quality during the quarter remained steady with low levels of nonperforming assets. Our liquidity position is solid, our strong capital position continued, and deposit balances increased modestly during the period from expected seasonal trends. The tax-equivalent net interest margin continues to be under pressure at 3.48%, down 12 basis points from the prior quarter, as rate competition on deposits remains elevated.
“We were incredibly pleased to learn during the second quarter that 1st Source was included on the Forbes ‘Best In State Banks’ list, ranking #1 in Indiana! The list was compiled in partnership with market research firm Statista, and the result of an independent survey conducted of bank customers across the state. Being named among the ‘Best In State Banks’ in Indiana by our clients for the second consecutive year, and #1 in the state for the first time, is an important and gratifying recognition for us. We strive every day to show our clients they have made the right choice for their financial future by entrusting us to be their partner. Being named the best bank in Indiana by our clients lets us know that we are living our mission to help people achieve security, build wealth and realize their dreams in all that we do.
“We were also happy to learn that 1st Source was named among the Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc. (KBW) Bank Honor Roll for the fifth consecutive year. We are proud to be one of the 14 honorees, placing us among the top 4% of eligible banks in the country. To be considered for this recognition, banks must be publicly traded institutions with more than $500 million in total assets and must have had 10 consecutive years of increased earnings per share. We strive to strike the right balance in our performance over the longer term and the ways we deliver positive results for our clients, shareholders, colleagues and communities. Receiving this honor once again is welcome recognition that our efforts are successful.
“As part of a strategic initiative to grow our commercial banking footprint and refocus the efforts of some of our leadership team, two significant changes were made this quarter as well. The first being, we opened a loan production office in the Indianapolis area, currently open by appointment only, which serves the community with small business loans and other commercial credit needs. The team will grow over time, and we look forward to serving business clients in this market. It was also announced that Larry Mayers, who has long served as Fort Wayne Regional President and Business Banking Group Head, would step away from his regional duties to focus solely on his business banking responsibilities. Luke Squires was named as his successor, taking over the role of Regional President of the Fort Wayne region and Cecile Weir replaced Luke as head of Business Banking in Fort Wayne. These changes align with 1st Source Bank’s community banking model. They continue our tradition of promoting from within and enhance our position as a community bank with a strong client focus and local leaders who strongly live the 1st Source values and who have the authority and responsibility to serve clients well and grow the Bank.
“We announced in April the re-election of three board members – Christopher J. Murphy III, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of 1st Source Corporation and Chairman of 1st Source Bank; Timothy K. Ozark, Chairman, TKO Finance Corporation; and Todd F. Schurz, Former President and Chief Executive Officer, Schurz Communications, Inc. – and the election of Andrea G. Short, President and Chief Executive Officer of 1st Source Bank as a new addition to the 1st Source Corporation Board of Directors. They all bring unique and valuable perspective to the Board and are knowledgeable business leaders with passion for 1st Source’s mission, making them ideal stewards for the future of the Company.
“Lastly, I must mention, after the quarter ended, just last week, we lost a friend, a partner, and a leader in the Bank and the community when Ernestine Raclin, our Chairman Emeritus died at the age of 95. The community joined us in celebrating her life and we acknowledge here the role she played in establishing the vision of who we are today – focusing on our Mission and living our values. Her legacy will live on in the way we serve our clients, and communities for generations to come. I thank you all for the outpouring of condolences and the messages celebrating her spirit. She loved this organization and the people here so dearly, and we’ll all miss her and honor her well into the future,” Mr. Murphy concluded.
