Revenue in the most recent quarter totaled $744 million, down from $803 million in 2018, due to the sale of ExpressJet in January 2019.

It has more than 14,000 employees.
“2020 represents the start of the next phase of our fleet transition as we increase new E175 aircraft and invest in our older CRJ fleet, driven by strong demand for both aircraft types,” Chip Childs, CEO and president, said in announcing the results. “We expect this will make 2020 a pivot year to position us for a new trajectory in 2021 and 2022.”
People’s Utah Bancorp
People’s Utah Bancorp, based in American Fork, reported net income of $10.7 million, or 61 cents per share, for the fourth quarter of 2019. That compares with $11.1 million, or 56 cents per share, for the same quarter a year earlier.
For the full year 2019, the company reported net income of $44.3 million, or $2.33 per share. That compares with $40.6 million, or $2.14 per share, for 2018.
People’s Utah Bancorp is a $2.4 billion bank holding company for Altabank, which has 26 branches from Preston, Idaho, to St. George.
“People’s Utah Bancorp achieved strong financial performance in the quarter and the year ended Dec. 31, 2019,” Len Williams, president and CEO, said in announcing the results. “We are pleased with the company’s return on average equity of 14.1 percent for 2019, given our tangible common equity to tangible assets increased to 12.8 percent.
“Our total assets grew 10.2 percent from a year ago, primarily as a result of strong low-cost deposit growth. Total deposits grew $179 million, or 9.6 percent year-over-year, as our retail branches and commercial treasury management team focused on raising commercial deposits from existing commercial clients, as well as the acquisition of new client relationships. Our loan portfolio remained flat from a year ago as we have increased selectivity and managed our overall loan concentrations.”
In the fourth quarter, the company announced it would change its bank’s name from People’s Intermountain Bank to Altabank, combining its three existing brand names — Bank of American Fork, Lewiston State Bank and People’s Town & Country Bank — under a unified name.
