“The Board is extremely proud of the work that our team did in the second quarter of 2020 as we dealt with the full effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shutdown of the U.S. economy for most of the quarter. The Bank transitioned to remote working very smoothly because we have encouraged remote working for several years so that part was largely a non-event. At the same time, our investment in Interactive Teller Machines (“ITMS”) several years ago proved their worth as our customers could still bank one-on-one with a live teller in a safe manner for them and our team. This is also promising for our future as consumer behavior significantly changed to more convenient transaction methods like mobile
“In the second quarter the team was “all-in” on the Small Business Administration’s (“SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”). As noted in past communications, we have strong SBA expertise in-house so combined with our previous investment in remote working, we were able to help over 1,300 small business in our community by providing $245 million in PPP loans. Our team recognized immediately that not only should we help our existing clients but there would be many non-clients who equally would need our help. We helped approximately 800 new business customers with the requirement that they open a business checking account and their commitment to moving their full relationship to us.
Results to date have been promising with new clients largely meeting the relationship commitment. We believe this is happening because of their gratitude for our team working 12 to 16-hour days, seven days a week to help them and provided a great experience doing it. The $245 million in PPP loans were made over an eightweek time frame and represent almost 2 years of normal loan production.
Again, the Board and myself could not be more proud of what the team did for our community”.
“As we look forward to the remainder of 2020 and 2021 there are no doubt big challenges looming, but uncertainty is too high to quantify adequately today. Like many small business-oriented banks, we are
not seeing issues yet because of the government programs to help borrowers. However, we do expect to see issues late 2020 and 2021 so the Bank will continue to provision at a heightened level.”
