Harold Carpenter

is this David Harold. Yes,

footprint we what of left is jobs at wanted out there. Many December. XX jobs end there - about the think come the to over out of the I come of did

might think do personnel rate stuff and will expect that increased into legacy see expense and we think and we give quarter personnel What to so going is our here, you footprint all of so the as first be so first quarter is, the from forth. flat. run see I you will the all our kind and in look races the cost rate, So, forward you expenses we run as expense fairly

rate be will going that the barely of net-net consistent next first expense year. think our we into run quarter So,

David Feaster

Okay.

pipeline pay have growth. crystal look increased how is downs What in be reform XXXX regions from any demand into to expected the far fourth you quarter, think you strength loan trending? your tax how ball, do your to the more out in in expect see do were you and also we heavy thus As and seen about that

Terry Turner

Dave this two is three Terry. or That’s things.

really start of in Raleigh, think Charlotte, hired off just to but and building would and are broad talked I that to growth the of words augment you that have generally a percentage looking great a double-digit number continue, principal C&I on you Charleston and Greenville, last largely as as already rate been in to markets, based have we’ve in say would I CRE the there occur practice. growth bankers XXXX, We a because know for good we expect in of percentage a the with growers BNC other expect terms to if XXXX. rates in to are that half outlook, expect their out we platform and they

far primarily share living, growth thus move I belief take a enjoyed share is to a the market to that, for So in market regional that as franchises, XXXX, tied will than make do large don’t this part I to we expect the that in from incremental over national we’ve good and quarter, and loan growth the the of hiring other what words nice in a would accelerate that growth I growth primarily you the functional there. the going be my I perhaps think the point, fourth loan demand, had to important better it see know as economic is growth so try so is really forward we rate to but and project growth. did more

effective people as real had law question, candidly, change know loan it’s I and you. there. more have kinds relates thing fourth detect I seen than commercial out it paper we We is once in get quarter result but think honest from the thank what the when benefit see, I law change, in loan commercial I real to an get escalation couldn't have more that think permanent far. that yet. concentrated [indiscernible] will I some estate demand, as firm answer in would and down, rate down you high tax the of I - I that wide of are tax thus is you do along, I you say non-recourse as tax Pay lot it so and C&I pay believe a let’s some the for XX-year one the and expectation optimism. And a the will of there that will it is very alternatives, and begin seen you rate estate. or markets see fixed have the on to all say your know is my demand not increased

here do of half So, very quarter the continue high the first in XXXX. fourth and that downs in expect been to pay have we

David Feaster

me. Okay. Last one from

up lenders the is are on doing in growth going the your then on made going plan CRE C&I you how talked CRE drive expertise expecting in actually of term, given you hear know pumping CRE future? to that that forward. that. that the actually you go to but brakes new kind I Are it and that CRE, in simply diminish or is C&I about excess You you’ve strength, hires near BNC of the concentration you’re just to wanted concentration

Terry Turner

of David, BNC C&I and then to mix line continue true where that in an on the effort the but it has it our what focus going think beginning again diminish with we stage expecting said this so the that our that business, growth I enjoyed, hiring practice. to strategy the and is Well but the CRE. idea is. without growth back the we’re of want again, both very beauty And that that involved the I - their think from CRE is transaction faster to than we will see double-digit change, this to that’s

our tax think to to guidelines, million the an capital underneath XXX% intent and it and shrink the deferred what it we structure say concentration so the we in has those $XX shrinkage so recent the boundary risk-based tried had I on million most asset stay been that that’s revaluation focused and on capital. here in to charge as at quarter $X.X the obviously on is unplanned those capital in the guidelines, relates total think concentration the two and just and issue, is I the generally firm XXX% generally

the those really it we're closing by rebuild for what exacerbated we’re a and write-downs, trying concentration was, back to limits equity So, associated us the those take few communicate may a enough guidelines. so inside what ought get back capital talking was we breach may there guidelines, produced and have and those to phenomenal but that’s we temporarily late - year to the that those those so to quarters in and as write-downs about we’re with

David Feaster

terrific. you. Got Thank it. That’s
