JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Regional banker Trustmark Corp. says it nearly doubled its second-quarter profit through the combination of more revenue and reductions in problem loans.
For the three months ending June 30, Trustmark earned $26.2 million, or 41 cents per share, compared with year-ago earnings in the second quarter of $13.4 million, or 23 cents per share.
Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters, on average, had forecast per-share earnings of 35 cents for the latest quarter.
Trustmark operates in Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee and Texas.
