While the levels of non-performing assets and net charge-offs reflect a certain amount of stability in credit quality, the Company recognizes that the ongoing decline in asset values often makes a favorable resolution of problem loans difficult. As part of its efforts to manage credit issues and boost the Company's allowance for loan losses in the face of a still-elevated level of net charge-offs and non-performing loans, Ameriana recorded a $658,000 provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2010. The Company's allowance for loan losses was $4.0 million or 1.32% of total loans at June 30, 2010, up from 1.23% of total loans at December 31, 2009 and 1.07% of total loans at June 30, 2009.Ameriana Bancorp is a bank holding company.
