“We continued to enhance our operating and financial platform during 2017, which will be the base of our long-term success going forward,” stated Thomas G. Caldwell, President and Chief Executive Officer. During the year, we successfully integrated the Liberty Bank N.A. merger, and significantly grew our loan portfolio, which included a $44.7 million increase during the past three months. We ended the year with record total assets and net income, despite one-time merger related expenses, and the write down in our deferred tax asset.”

“Middlefield’s community-oriented banking values and customer-centric approach is helping us differentiate the Bank within our Northeast and Central Ohio markets. To this end, I am pleased with the growth we are achieving in Central Ohio. In 12 months and ahead of schedule, Middlefield’s Sunbury location that was opened during the 2016 fourth quarter has become profitable. We expect Middlefield’s brand will continue to grow throughout Central Ohio, and we anticipate opening our fourth Central Ohio location in Powell during 2018.”
