“We achieved much success during the fourth quarter of 2011 as we experienced net loan growth while continuing to expand our franchise by opening de novo locations in Starkville, Miss., and Tuscaloosa and Montgomery, Ala.,” said Renasant chairman and CEO E. Robinson McGraw. “In addition to our market expansions, we continued to experience a decrease in our nonperforming loans and other real estate owned. Our nonperforming loans not subject to loss-share decreased 35 percent during the year and represented only 1.56 percent of total loans at the end of 2011.”
