The first quarter 2016 included a $1.3 million after tax gain on the sale of two Central Texas branch locations that were sold in order to focus on the Houston MSA. Excluding the gain on the sale of these branches during the first quarter 2016, net income for the first quarter 2017 increased 20.4% and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter 2017 increased 15.4% compared to the same period in 2016.

"We are excited to report another solid quarter driven by a record level of core loan growth that grew at an annualized rate of over 21% in the first quarter. Our continued focus is on leveraging the recruiting successes that we have experienced over the past several quarters. Our success is due in large part to our bankers and to their existing and new customer relationships within the Houston MSA. In addition to adding high quality lenders, we have recruited experienced operations specialists and retained consultants to help us enhance our policies, procedures and infrastructure to position the Bank for continued growth," commented George Martinez, Allegiance's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"Credit quality remains a core foundational strength with key metrics remaining favorable. We continue to monitor current events and economic trends that could impact our market and clients. We are fortunate to be located in Houston where customers are continuing to make investments in the increasingly diversified local economy," concluded Martinez.
