Executive Commentary - Andrew Murstein, President of Medallion

We are very pleased with our second quarter results. Net interest income grew 20% over the prior year quarter and importantly grew 7% from just one quarter ago. As we have been saying since interest rates started to increase, we believe we will be able to manage through the current interest rate environment by growing our loan portfolio and passing along a portion of those increases. Our consumer teams originated over $300 million of loans in the quarter, which is a record second quarter for us, and led to our loan portfolio exceeding $2 billion for the first time in our history. We had another strong quarter of cash collections related to our medallion assets, with over $10 million collected. This helped us deliver one of our strongest quarters ever, with earnings per share of $0.62.
