We have also had respectful increases in our organic deposit growth.” Dennis G. Bedley, Chairman & CEO commented, “The third quarter was a continuation of trends that we have seen in recent quarters and represents an improvement in our overall performance. Rising rates, strong loan growth and increases in our deposit base all contributed to higher net interest income. Credit quality remains sound and the South Florida economy is continuing to be strong. There is more to be done but I continue to be pleased at our progress to produce value for our Shareholders.”
