The bank’s first quarter momentum continued through the second quarter as AB&T saw improvements in several key areas. To provide a clearer picture of that performance some changes have been made to the quarterly Checkpoint that will hopefully provide a better understanding of AB&T’s success.
The bank saw a 9.0% improvement in Net Revenue compared to 2Q16 and an 11.4% increase year to date when compared to the same period last year. That swell came as a direct result of increases in Net Interest Income (up 7.9% compared to 2Q16 and 7.6% year to date compared to that period in 2016) and Non-Interest Income (up 15.1% compared to 2Q16 and 32.7% year to date).
Those improvements, combined with a reduction in Non-Interest Expense, led to an increase in Net Income of 55.0% for 2Q17 compared to 2Q16 and an increase of 93.8% when comparing the first two quarters of 2017 to those of 2016, thus giving the bank an improved Efficiency Ratio of 77.55% for 2Q17 compared to 83.94% for the same period in 2016.
There was also continued growth in loans and deposits with a 7.5% increase in Average Loans and 11.6% growth in Average Deposits when comparing 2Q17 and 2Q16. Additionally the bank remains well capitalized and once again reports excellent asset quality.
