Old National profit rises

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Evansville-based Old National Bancorp on Monday reported a third quarter profit of $11.9 million, nearly triple the amount from the year-ago period.

Profit per common share was 13 cents, beating analysts’ estimates by 2 cents.

“We are quite pleased with our third quarter results as they clearly demonstrate our strong focus on reducing non-interest expenses, maintaining strong capital ratios and holding credit metrics stable,” Old National President and CEO Bob Jones said in a prepared statement.

The bank’s earnings also compared favorably to the previous quarter, when it reported profit of $10.5 million, or 12 cents per common share.

Total loan demand, however, continued to present a challenge for the financial services holding company, which has $7.5 billion in assets and operates banks in Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.

Total loans were $3.7 billion as of Sept. 30, a decline of $30.3 million from the second quarter.

The company said lending activity fell from the previous quarter in three important areas. Consumer loans decreased $36.2 million, commercial loans $25.9 million, and commercial real estate loans $20.9 million.

Old National’s allowance for loan losses as of Sept. 30 was $72.1 million, or 1.95 percent of total loans. That’s up slightly from the previous quarter’s allowance of $71.9 million, or 1.93 percent of total loans.

Bank directors declared a dividend of 7 cents per share payable on Dec. 15.

Old National ranked fifth on IBJ’s most recent list of the largest Indianapolis-area banks, with 432 local employees.

  • About to do the same - credit union with limited locations
    I'm about to switch too. I'm not seeing the value and had the thought of switching to another, bigger bank. I'm really considering an online bank or local credit union. Sad.
  • Agreed
    They started charging me a monthly service charge on my checking based on my monthly balance in September. I opened an account at a local credit union.
  • where to go
    Agreed. But where do you go? The local banks sold or died and only the monsters that cant fail are left.
  • one nickel and dime at a time
    I'm pro-business not anti prophet, but seeing this new at the same time that they want to charge me $15 to replace a broken debit card AND charge me $30 every time I use the line of credit tied to my account. This is why I'm leaving the bank and taking my money to another bank.

    1. OK Larry, let's sign Lance, shore up the PG and let's get to the finals.

    2. A couple of issues need some clarification especially since my name was on the list. I am not sure how this information was obtained and from where. For me, the amount was incorrect to begin with and the money does not come to me personally. I am guessing that the names listed are the Principal Investigators (individual responsible for the conduct of the trail) for the different pharmaceutical trials and not the entity which receives the checks. In my case, I participate in Phase II and Phase III trials which are required for new drug development. Your article should differentiate the amount of money received for consulting, for speaking fees, and for conduct of a clinical trial for new drug development. The lumping of all of these categories may give the reader a false impression of physicians just trying to get rich. The Sunshine Law may help to differentiate these categories in the future. The public should be aware that the Clinical Trial Industry could be a real economic driver for Indiana since these revenues supports jobs and new job creation. Nationally, this account for 10-20 billion which our State is missing out on to a large degree. Yes, new drug and technology development has gotten most of the attention (e.g. CTSI, BioCrossroads, etc.) However, serious money is being left on the table by not participating in the clinical trials to get those new drugs and medical devices on the market!!!! I guess that this is not sexy enough for academia.

    3. The address given for the Goldfish Swim Club is the Ace Hardware, is it closing?

    4. Out of state management and ownership. If Kite controlled it, everything would be leased. Of course, due to the roundabout, there is limited access to the south side of 116th now also. Just have to go down to the light.

    5. Hey smudge, You're opposed to arresting people for minor crimes? Sounds great! We should only focus on murders and such, right? Let's stand around and wait until someone shoots someone before we act. Whatever we do, we should never question anyone, frisk anyone, or arrest anyone unless they are actively engaged in shooting or stabbing. Very sound!
