OLD NATIONAL’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19

COMMITTING $1.2 MILLION TO COVID-19 RELIEF EFFORTS WITHIN OUR COMMUNITIES

To best serve our communities during this time of need, Old National is committing $1.2 million for COVID-19 relief.
This includes:

  • $600,000 in funding focused on meeting the immediate needs in our communities, with an emphasis on low-to-moderate income communities. 
  • $600,000 in Old National Bank Foundation grant funding that will focus on longer-term restorative and transformational needs within our communities.

SUPPORTING OUR CLIENTS THROUGH RELIEF MEASURES

To assist our consumer and business clients during this time of need, Old National is providing relief in several ways:

  • Approving loan payment extensions and waiving or refunding certain banking fees for clients experiencing a COVID-19-related hardship.
  • Aiding thousands of our clients by administering the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Through April 16, 2020, we have approved approximately $1.35 billion in total loan volume through the PPP.

THE ONB WAY: OLD NATIONAL’S NEW STRATEGIC PLAN

Old National is implementing a new strategic plan – and overall way of doing business – designed to keep our clients at the center of all we do. Known as The ONB Way, it includes:

  • Realigning the organization into clearly defined segments to align leaders and relationship managers with the client segment they can best serve (while not wavering on our commitment to community).
  • Deepening client relationships through integrated Commercial, Community Banking and Wealth teams.
  • Simplifying and improving the end-to-end banking/borrowing journey while adhering to strong risk management principles.
  • Creating a new Wealth Division that combines wealth management, investments and private banking for a simplified, highly consultative client experience firmly rooted in financial planning.
  • Investing in our operational and IT infrastructure to meet our clients “where they are” and ensure that we keep pace with technology and client digital expectations.

BRANCH NETWORK OPTIMIZATION

Another component of The ONB Way is the optimization of our branch network. This optimization, which includes 31 banking center consolidations scattered throughout the footprint, reflects an ongoing shift among our clients toward digital banking solutions. The consolidation of 12 of these banking centers occurred on April 13, 2020, and the remaining 19 are anticipated to be consolidated on April 24, 2020.  Many of the facilities to be consolidated are in smaller markets, several of which were added in recent years through partnership activity.  By state, these consolidations include 10 banking centers in both Wisconsin and Indiana, five in Michigan, four in Minnesota and two in Kentucky.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Old National Bancorp reported first-quarter 2020 net income of $22.6 million, or $0.13 per diluted share. 

Included in the first quarter were pre-tax charges of $31.2 million for ONB Way.  Excluding these charges from the current quarter and netting out debt securities gains, adjusted net income was $42.1 million, or $0.25 per diluted share.
