The 2019 Annual Meeting of Shareholders of ACNB Corporation (NASDAQ: ACNB) was held May 7, at the ACNB Corporation Operations Center, 100 V-Twin Drive, Gettysburg. ACNB Corporation is the financial holding company for the wholly-owned subsidiaries of ACNB Bank, Gettysburg, and Russell Insurance Group Inc., Westminster, Md.

“2018 was a record financial year in ACNB Corporation’s history with reported net income of $21.7 million, an increase of 122 percent over prior year results. The primary driver of this significant increase in net income was the first full year of combined banking operations and positive momentum experienced following the acquisition of New Windsor Bancorp Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, New Windsor State Bank, effective July 1, 2017. Also contributing to the corporation’s strong 2018 financial performance was enhanced revenue growth attributable to subsidiary activities through both ACNB Bank Wealth Management and Russell Insurance Group Inc.,” said ACNB Corporation President & Chief Executive Officer James P. Helt to the company’s shareholders at the meeting.

“ACNB Corporation remains a strong, profitable and growing organization with a solid foundation in community banking,” Helt said. “A long history of commitment distinguishes ACNB Corporation and its subsidiaries from its competition. Our pledge of commitment is dependent upon people. At ACNB Corporation, we are indeed thankful for the committed people who serve our customers every business day and who provide oversight on our board of directors. Likewise, we are grateful for our shareholders’ continued investment in ACNB Corporation’s future as we pursue our vision to be the independent financial services provider of choice in the core markets served by building relationships and finding solutions.”

During the business portion of the annual meeting, ACNB Corporation’s shareholders approved proposals related to executive compensation and ratification of the selection of RSM US LLP as ACNB Corporation’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending Dec. 31, 2019.
