The increase in net income was primarily due to continued loan growth and loan portfolio restructuring.

The increase in commitments and loans in process is primarily the result of the company's continued focus on growing its lending operations in the lower Hudson Valley.
Total liabilities at December 31, 2016 were USD 625.1m compared to USD 488.6m at December 31, 2015, an increase of USD 136.5m or 27.9%.

In addition, Federal Home Loan Bank advances grew by USD 14.0m to USD 70.2m at December 31, 2016, compared to USD 56.2m at December 31, 2015.
