Net income for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $15.0 million, down $4.5 million or 23.3% compared to the $19.5 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2022. Contributing to the lower quarterly results were increased funding costs and increased operating expenses, which included costs related to three branch closures during the fourth quarter of 2023 as well as personnel-related charges.

Net income for 2023 was $9.5 million, a decrease of $75.5 million compared to the year ended December 31, 2022. Significant contributors to the year-over-year decrease in net income included a previously announced after-tax loss of $52.9 million, or $3.69 loss per diluted share, related to the sale of $510.5 million of available-for-sale debt securities, increased funding costs and an increase in operating expenses.

The sale of securities and subsequent reinvestment in the second and third quarters of 2023 is favorably impacting securities revenue as the securities sold had an average yield of 0.86%, while the proceeds of the sale were largely reinvested into securities with an estimated yield of approximately 5.09%.

TMP shares closed Thursday at $54.34.
