Record profitability helped increase our return on average equity (ROAE) to over 10% during the second quarter, after several capital raises and the Liberty acquisition temporarily reduced our ROAE to the high single digits, stated Thomas G. Caldwell, President and Chief Executive Officer. During the quarter, we had approximately $38 million of loans payoff, which included a $6 million loan that was previously classified as a troubled debt restructuring (TDR). In spite of this impact, our loan portfolio has increased nearly 9% compared to the same period a year ago. Our pipeline of potential new loans remains robust, but we have started to see other lenders within our markets become more aggressive on pricing and less restrictive on covenants and standards. It is important to note that Middlefield will remain focused on our lending standards by appropriately managing credit risk and controlling growth.
