Milford, Michigan – Huron Valley State Bank reported the above financials demonstrating continued strong growth and income gains for the 3rd Quarter of 2014. Contributing to this is primarily loan and retail deposit growth, along with an increasing net interest margin. Loans increased 26% from the previous year, and 9% in the 3rd quarter alone. Deposits also experienced a 12% increase from the previous year.
The loan growth is due to a combination of factors including increased efficiencies in operations, strategic additions to the lending team, and focused sales strategies for small business and residential lending. Looking ahead, the bank is actively investigating niche products to attract small to medium sized businesses and plans to hire additional staff for the mortgage lending team.
Also, the bank has once again been recognized as a superior 5-Star rated bank by BauerFinancial, Inc. of Coral Gables, Florida, the nation's leading bank rating and research firm. To earn this rating Huron Valley State Bank must report strong capital levels and have a solid loan portfolio with negligible levels of delinquent loans. Its 5-Star Superior rating on Huron Valley State Bank denotes the highest level of strength and performance that a bank can receive.
"I am pleased with our 3rd quarter results and to have once again earned this distinction from BauerFinancial," said Jack Shubitowski, the bank's President and CEO. "The strong commercial and residential mortgage activity has led to impressive growth for the quarter. The growth, coupled with continued expense control, has resulted in a 38% increase in net income year to date. We are proud to say we have grown organically, by serving our community, which has made us the successful community bank that we are today".
