“Our financial performance in 2019 remains strong and on track with our expectations,” said Phil DiPofi, President and CEO. “The majority of our customers across the Pacific Northwest are experiencing a reasonable year despite pockets of continuing trade, political and weather-related challenges.”
Earnings for the nine months ended September 30th came in at $206.7 million, slightly below the $220.5 million reported a year earlier.
The nine months ended Sept. 30, 2018, included an additional patronage distribution from CoBank and a larger refund of premiums previously paid to the Farm Credit System Insurance Corporation, which were the primary contributors to the change in net income.
