CapitalMark Records 14th Consecutive Quarterly Profit
Chattanooga, Tennessee – July 18, 2012 – CapitalMark Bank & Trust today reported earnings of $1.9 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.
“We are pleased to report our 14th consecutive profitable quarter, a notable achievement in light of the sustained economic and regulatory hurdles facing our industry. Although CapitalMark’s earnings were supported by a one-time securities gain, our pre-tax income excluding the gain reflects growth of 9% for the quarter and 27% year-to-date when compared to the same periods last year. Our continued balance sheet growth places CapitalMark at a record $740 million in total assets. While we maintain steady growth, I want to underscore our conservative management reflected in the bank’s favorable credit quality metrics,” said R. Craig Holley, CapitalMark’s Chairman, President and CEO.
