Denver – FirstSun Capital Bancorp (“FirstSun”) (OTCQX: FSUN) reported net income of $28.0 million for the second quarter of 2023 compared to net income of $0.4 million for the second quarter of 2022.  Earnings per diluted share were $1.11 for the second quarter of 2023 compared to $0.02 for the second quarter of 2022.

Neal Arnold, FirstSun’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are very pleased with our record earnings this quarter and our continued strong results driven by our well diversified business mix. Highlights this quarter include a net interest margin of 4.24%, along with growth in both loans and deposits. We believe our growth amidst the difficult banking environment, including declining deposit trends and rising funding costs, will position us uniquely among our peers. Additionally, with growing concern about economic uncertainty and rising commercial real estate pressures, we are heartened by the vitality of the Southwest region that we operate in and our lower exposure to commercial real estate relative to our peers. Further, we believe our strong capital base, our granular deposit base, our securities portfolio positioning, our loan portfolio credit quality and our overall asset sensitive profile provides us with the flexibility to continue to deliver responsible growth in this slowing economic environment.”
