Net income increased by $l.5 million or $ .42 per share as a result of the adoption of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes, in the first quarter of 1993. Net income, exclusive of the adoption of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, increased 5.5 percent for the first nine months of l993 compared with the same period in l992.
 William T. McConnell, President and Chief Executive Officer of Park, said that the volume of new loans continues at a brisk pace with loan balances up nine percent over a year ago. Favorable trends are also evident in the reduction of non performing assets - non performing loans and foreclosed real estate. McConnell noted that despite improved asset quality at Park and in the banking sector in general, Park would continue the practice of maintaining conservative loan loss reserves.
 McConnell also noted that equity capital is approximately $l05 million and that Park's capital ratios have steadily increased since the acquisition of Mutual Federal Savings in August l990. He said the management of Park will continue to search out and make acquisitions which will grow earnings per share in order to leverage equity capital.
 Park National Corporation, is a $l.3 billion asset bank holding company with 37 full service offices located in Central Ohio.
