CAMDEN, ME, September 25, 2019 – Camden National Corporation (NASDAQ: CAC), the parent company of Camden National Bank, has been named to the Sandler O’Neill Sm-All Stars Class of 2019. Camden National was one of 30 publicly traded banks and thrifts – and the only bank headquartered in New England – to be recognized.
“The objective of the Sm-All Stars remains the same: to identify the top performing small-cap banks and thrifts in the country,” Sandler O’Neill announced. “In doing this, we hope to uncover the next crop of stellar mid-cap banks before they are discovered by the rest of the world.”
To earn Sm-All Star status, companies needed to have a market capitalization below $2.5 billion, a category that includes 394 depository institutions nationally. Companies were selected based on various financial screening criteria, including growth, profitability, credit quality and capital strength.
“Camden National is thrilled to be selected for the Sandler O'Neill Sm-All Stars amongst the highest performing institutions nationwide,” said Camden National Corporation President & CEO, Greg Dufour. “This recognition is a testament to the success of our measured, balanced approach and to the outstanding dedication of our talented employees.”
