James Black, President and CEO stated, "Continuing the strong positive trends for the year, third quarter results showed moderate loan and deposit growth, increasing 3.1% and 1.4%, respectively, over the second quarter. Delinquencies remained at historical lows and the modest provision for loan losses was due predominately to loan growth. The bank continues to monitor economic and credit conditions along with preparation for the Current Expected Credit Losses ("CECL") adoption effective January 2023. Operating costs remained elevated due principally to talent acquisition and retention and overall inflation impacts. With continued focus and execution from the Touchstone team, we anticipate profitability metrics to improve."

On the liability side of the balance sheet, deposits totaled $546.9 million at September 30, 2022, as compared to $517.4 million at December 31, 2021. The Bank is beginning to experience pressure on deposit pricing as it looks to continue its deposit growth.

Shareholders' Equity totaled $41.6 million at September 30, 2022. The Company's accumulated other comprehensive loss total $11.4 million at September 30, 2022.
