President's Statement

I am pleased to announce Mid Penn's financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.  The second quarter net income available to common shareholders of $1,619,000 was Mid Penn's highest quarterly earnings in our 146-year history, and helped propel Mid Penn to its highest six month earnings total ever. This represents a significant achievement in Mid Penn's progress. As can be seen above, year-to-date net income available to common shareholders improved 60% versus the comparable period last year. Net income available to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2014 increased 27% over the comparable period in 2013. Strong loan and deposit growth, an improved net interest margin, and control of expenses were the driving factors of success. We are encouraged by the financial results for the first half of 2014 and remain focused on quality asset growth, expanding low cost sources 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 $0.10 per common share based on second quarter earnings. This is an increase from the $0.05 per common share dividend declared for the second quarter of 2013 and our fifteenth consecutive quarter of paying a cash dividend. The dividend is payable August 25, 2014 to shareholders of record August 6, 2014.
