We owe our achievements to the exceptional efforts of our hard working and dedicated bankers along with the support we received from our loyal shareholders and customers. Allegiance enters the year 2017 with a strong balance sheet, a stable and diversified portfolio and a continued focus on superior asset quality," continued Martinez. 

"We are focused on the execution of our business plan and positioning ourselves for significant growth in the future.  Over the past year, we built upon our talented lending team by hiring 12 new lenders and further enhanced our infrastructure.  We are strengthening our internal processes and systems which will provide our platform the requisite technology and capacity we will need to support our ambitious growth plans. We believe these efforts position us well for continued growth and shareholder value creation in 2017 and beyond," concluded Martinez.
