Rosemore, Chairman of the Board of Trust Managers, stated; "Because there continued to be a lack of liquidity in the marketplace, we redirected our efforts towards originating loans under the SBA 7(a) Program. The secondary market for these loans remains strong. Due in part to government programs and our increased emphasis, we were successful in ramping up our SBA 7(a) volume to $28 million in 2009 compared to $11 million in 2008. We anticipate originating between $30 and $40 million in these loans in 2010. Our year-end 2009 serviced portfolio totaled $273 million which was relatively unchanged from December 31, 2008. "Even though our portfolio continues to perform relatively well with loan losses totaling only 0.5% of our retained portfolio, we did increase our loan loss reserves during 2009. We anticipate that overall economic weakness may continue for several quarters. Fortunately, we are beginning to see early indications of economic recovery, which should benefit our borrowers."
