The reason for the increase in net income was due to a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $542,000, or 64.4%, for the three months ended September 30, 2010 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2009. Also, for the three month period ended September 30, 2010, net interest income increased by $244,000 compared to the three month period ended September 30, 2009.

There was also a decrease in non-interest expense of $120,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2010 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2009.
