Our goal is to continue to grow commercial loans and deposits while also growing our national retail business. As expected, our mortgage banking unit was not immune to the increase in interest rates which caused a reduction in our mortgage originations and spreads over the last three months. We have made significant progress in shifting our focus to purchase loans versus refinancings.
