Q2 unaudited results
It’s worth mentioning that on July 30, 2021, the bank announced unaudited results for the second quarter of 2021. Since the results were not particularly impressive, Board Chair and CEO Betsy Lawer stated:
“The bank continues to monitor the changing landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic to assure protocols are in place to maintain the health and safety of our employees and customers.”
By way of explanation, the unaudited net income for the second quarter of 2021 was $13.7 million, or $4.33 per share. In 2020, the company earned $14.6 million in net income or $4.60 per share for the same period.
Conversely, unaudited net income was $27.7 million or $8.74 per share, as opposed to $28.7 million or $9.07 per share in 2020 for the same time.
