Paragon Bank today reported a very successful third quarter of 2015, producing record revenues, the highest total loans in bank history and an improved net interest margin. This record-breaking period stems from a 57 percent drop in nonperforming assets, which are at their lowest levels since 2007, and the continued progress of the Small Business Capital Group (SBCG) based in Atlanta. Due to increases in Small Business Administration (SBA) income, mortgage income and solutions product income, core non-interest income for the first three quarters of 2015 increased 82.3 percent over the same period in 2014 to $910,000.
