"We are proud to report our fourth consecutive year of record earnings," stated Eugene J. Draganosky, President and Chief Executive Officer. As of yearend, loans advanced $31 million, or 8%, while deposits grew a robust $64 million, or 16%. This boosted net interest income by $1,770,000, or 12%. Falling short-term interest rates continued to put pressure on our net interest margin, which fell ten basis points to 3.41% in the fourth quarter compared to the same period last year. Gains on sale of residential mortgages, driven by significant purchase money financing volume, remained strong throughout the year, increasing $639,000, or 16%. Driven by 12% year-over-year balance sheet expansion, salary and self-funded medical insurance costs combined with elevated occupancy and equipment investments caused the majority of the Other Expense increase. After enjoying reduced medical costs through 2018 and much of 2019, claims began to rise in the latter half of 2019. Loan quality remains satisfactory. Net charge-offs were $149,000 for 2019, and non-performing assets to total assets ended the year at 0.22%. We remained well capitalized and look forward to 2020."

Yesterday, York Traditions Bank announced plans to open a new full-service branch and banking center at 1687 Oregon Pike in Lancaster, PA. Subject to regulatory approvals, this 3,600-square-foot office will begin serving the needs of Lancaster County business and individual clients in the Fall of 2020.
