GreenStone Farm Credit Services recently released its second-quarter stockholder report, detailing earnings of $40.1 million for the three months that ended June 30. Comparatively, net income was $33.4 million for the same period last year. Year-to-date earnings for the first half of 2018 were $85.9 million, a 20 percent increase over the first six months of 2017. Owned and managed loan volume totaled $8.6 billion at June 30.
“When compared to the second quarter of 2017, our owned and managed total loan volume was up 6.1 percent,” said Travis Jones, GreenStone’s chief financial officer. “The increase was driven by growth in all market segments but led by our capital markets and country living segments. Growth in these segments shows the diversity of our business and better allows us to remain in a solid position to serve our members. The financial strength of our member-owned cooperative is highlighted by our patronage program. Over the last 13 years, we have returned $318 million in patronage dividends to our member-owners.”
