NEWARK, Ohio – Park National Corporation (Park) (NYSE MKT: PRK) today announced increased net income and other financial results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016 (three and nine months ended September 30, 2016). The board of directors also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.94 per common share, payable on December 9, 2016 to common shareholders of record as of November 18, 2016.

Park’s third quarter net income in 2016 was $27.4 million, a 37.0 percent increase from $20.0 million for the same period in 2015. Net income per diluted common share for the third quarter of 2016 was $1.78, compared to $1.30 in the third quarter of 2015. Park cited substantial recoveries from loans in its Southeast Property Holdings unit as part of the boost in income for the quarter.

“Our results this year position us well as we look ahead and make plans for the future,” said Park President and CEO David L. Trautman. “We lead our organization with long-run performance in mind. While any given quarter may contain one-time income items or expenses, it’s the consistency of our community banks that demonstrates our strength and steady success.”
