It was an extraordinary year by many measures for First Business in 2019. We reported record levels of earnings and top line revenue, as well as solid loan growth and improved credit quality metrics. Deposits grew to an all-time high, benefiting from exceptional in-market deposit gathering efforts by our team. During 2019 we also made important investments in talent and infrastructure that allowed us to achieve these very strong operating results and position us well for solid financial performance in the future.
The trends behind First Business’s outstanding performance validate our approach and demonstrate important progress toward our goal of delivering above-average total shareholder returns among our peers.
