The decrease in earnings is primarily due to a $14.7 million decrease in gains on the sale of loans as a result of a 64.4% decrease in mortgage loan originations.
Loans held for investment totaled $468.9 million at June 30, 2010 compared to $486.6 million at December 31, 2009 as loan demand remains soft and management has a continuing guarded economic outlook.

Investment securities have increased from $47.8 million at December 31, 2009 to $128.0 million at June 30, 2010 as a result of deposit growth and the lack of loan demand. The securities purchased are all government agencies, predominantly with maturities of five years or less.
