“I am pleased with our third quarter and nine-month financial results, despite continued industry wide challenges including slowing loan growth and compressing net interest margin. During this period, we remain focused on our long-term strategic plan and value creation. Stability in our net interest margin, the significant year-over-year growth in noninterest income, controlled expense growth, and stable asset quality demonstrate the successful execution of our value-oriented strategies. In addition, according to the FDIC’s annual market share study, Middlefield successfully increased its market share within the state of Ohio as our annual increase in deposits was one of the strongest from June 2018 to June 2019. According to the FDIC’s annual study, we now rank as the 27th largest bank and one of the largest community banks in the State.”
