Bank of Maryland parent posts 2nd-quarter profit

July 24, 1993

Bank Maryland Corp. of Towson said yesterday that it posted a profit in the second quarter as distressed loans declined under a restructuring plan.

The company, parent of the Bank of Maryland, had net income of $128,000, or 6 cents a share, for the three months ended June 30 in contrast to a loss of $150,000, or 7 cents a share, a year earlier.

"The profit for the second quarter is further evidence that our turnaround plan for the company is continuing to take a stronger hold and show measurable results," said H. David Shumpert, president and chief executive.

Bank Maryland, operating under Mr. Shumpert since mid-1991, said it developed and implemented a plan to achieve profitability and increase capital by improving loan quality and reducing operating costs.

The company added $175,000 to its reserves a year earlier. In all, loan loss reserves fell to $2.84 million from $4.25 million a year ago.
