Chief Executive Officer Bruce Jensen said the bank’s profits have resulted from general operations and cost control measures, and don’t include any unusual or one-time gains. “We’ve benefited from improving economic conditions in Southern Utah over the past year,” he said. “Though no one is forecasting unbridled expansion during the remainder of the year, we’re cautiously optimistic
"There are distinct trouble spots in the economy, but looking forward, bank earnings should be helped by perceptible growth trends in our market.” Jensen said that area loan demand has increased and that a growing number of financial institutions are becoming more aggressive in lending funds. Town & Country reports that it remains well capitalized, with a total risk-based capital ratio of 15.41% as of June 30th.
