Despite the increase in non-accrual loans at December 31, 2010, the classified loan portfolio has been reasonably stable throughout most of 2010 and we do not appear to be seeing significant net migration into classified status. That said, we remain cautious as the economy appears to be stabilizing with signs of modest growth re-appearing for the first time in several years. Meaningful loan growth continues to be a struggle but as previously reported, we are seeing better quality relationship opportunities than at any time in the past few years.The Allowance for Loan Losses amounted to $33.1 million at December 31, 2010 representing almost 3% of total loans and 223% of total non-performing loans. In these difficult economic periods with uncertainty still high, this loan loss allowance enables us to maintain our aggressive credit remediation posture.
