FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Alan D. Eskow
Senior Executive Vice President and
Chief Financial Officer
Loan Portfolio: Loans increased $387.6 million, or 6.2 percent on an annualized basis, to approximately $25.4 billion at March 31, 2019 from December 31, 2018. The increase was largely due to solid organic loan growth within the commercial and industrial loan and commercial real estate loan categories. Additionally, we sold approximately $193 million of residential mortgage loans and a small retail credit card portfolio resulting in total pre-tax gains of $4.6 million during the first quarter of 2019.
Non-interest Income: Non-interest income increased $73.0 million to $107.7 million for the first quarter of 2019 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2018 largely due to a $78.5 million gain on the sale leaseback of 25 branches and 1 corporate location recognized during the first quarter, partially offset by a decline in other income caused by a $6.5 million gain realized on the sale of our Visa Class B shares during the fourth quarter of 2018. See "Sale Leaseback" section below for more details.
Non-interest Expense: Non-interest expense decreased $5.9 million, or 3.8 percent, to $147.8 million for the first quarter of 2019 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2018 primarily due to declines in several expense categories due, in part, to our continued focus on operational efficiencies. Infrequent charges related to severance expense and other than temporary impairment of certain tax credit investments totaled $4.8 million and $2.4 million, respectively, within non-interest expense for the first quarter of 2019.
