President's Statement

I am pleased to announce our fourth quarter 2013 financial results and our final results for the full year. As can be seen above, net income available to common shareholders improved almost 24% for the quarter, versus the comparable quarter last year, and 4% for the year. That success was driven by healthy loan growth, improvement in net interest margin, control of expenses and improvement in asset quality - all important metrics for Mid Penn.

Weighing against those positives was an erosion in noninterest income, led by a decline in mortgage banking income. The last few years in the residential mortgage market were strong as low rates generated healthy refinance activity.  With rates increasing modestly over the last two years, refinance activity has slowed dramatically.  While we remain committed to the residential mortgage market, we do so recognizing that the overall market will likely remain challenged for months to come.  We also remain committed to developing the remainder of our noninterest income sources, such as fiduciary activity, interchange activity, merchant activity, and the development of our insurance business.

We are encouraged by 2013 as another step forward in the turnaround of Mid Penn.  We enter 2014 cautiously optimistic that it too will bring another year of improvement with our continued focus on quality asset growth, low cost source of funds, control of operating expenses and increased noninterest income.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I announce today that Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc. is declaring a cash dividend of $0.05 per share on our common stock, our thirteenth consecutive quarter of paying a cash dividend. The dividend is payable February 24, 2014 to shareholders of record February 5, 2014.
