The stabilization of property values resulted in fewer and less severe write-downs of previously identified problem assets. We are also encouraged by the reduction in non-performing assets for the second consecutive quarter, lower delinquencies, and reduction in troubled debt restructure.Net charge-offs were also a factor in the improved earnings as they were down compared to both the linked quarter and the first quarter 2010. We anticipate the level of charge-offs s will be choppy over the next several quarters as more of the problem assets work through this system. However we are confident that we’ve adequately reserved for these assets.
