“We are seeing increasing loan volume and a decrease in problem assets,” said Chairman and CEO, Johan Mehlum. “Steps implemented to improve the balance sheet in the problem loan area have taken hold and Siuslaw recorded no provision for loan losses in the third quarter, this reflects improved credit quality and recoveries recorded during the quarter.”
