Jeffrey G. Ludwig, Midland States president and CEO, said, “We continue to execute well on our strategic priorities and deliver solid financial results for our shareholders. We had another strong quarter of production in our equipment finance business, generated significant non-interest income from a diverse range of business lines, and continued to drive improved efficiencies throughout our organization. We were very pleased to complete our acquisition of HomeStar Financial Group in just over three months after announcing the transaction. With its leading market position in Kankakee, Illinois, attractive deposit base, excess liquidity, and strong team of community bankers, we believe that HomeStar adds significant value to our franchise.”
Net interest income for the second quarter of 2019 was $46.1 million, an increase of 1.0% from $45.6 million for the first quarter of 2019. Excluding accretion income, net interest income decreased $0.4 million from the prior quarter. Accretion income associated with purchased loan portfolios totaled $3.4 million for the second quarter of 2019, compared with $2.5 million for the first quarter of 2019.

The decrease in total loans from March 31, 2019 was primarily attributable to declines in the commercial real estate and residential real estate portfolios, which was partially offset by organic growth in commercial loans and leases and construction and land development loans.
Equipment finance balances increased $74.0 million from March 31, 2019, which are booked within the commercial loans and leases portfolio, reflecting management’s efforts to grow the equipment finance business.
