“We started 2018 with another quarter of increased profitability, supported by strong loan and deposit growth and a stable net interest margin,” said Brian M. Riley, president and CEO. “We are well-positioned to continue growing, as we focus on building a steady, well-diversified community bank in Arizona. At the same time, we maintain high levels of liquidity to fund internal growth or to provide capital for opportunities in our market.”

Total assets were $630.4 million at March 31, 2018, an increase an increase of $40.1 million from a year ago.

Community banking organizations, including State Bank Corp. and Mohave State Bank, became subject to increased capital requirements on Jan. 1, 2015, and certain provisions of the new rules will be phased in from 2015 through 2019. The company’s consolidated capital ratios and the bank’s capital ratios exceeded the regulatory guidelines for a well-capitalized financial institution under the Basel III and Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform requirements at March 31, 2018.
