Despite the decline in net interest margin over the past 12 months, net interest income of $28.0 million for the second quarter of 2011 was down less than 1.0% when compared to the same quarter last year. Growth in earning assets, primarily in the securities portfolio, helped mitigate the earnings impact of the decline in margin.

Fee income from investment services, insurance, and card services were all up for both the quarter and year-to-date periods, while service charges on deposit accounts declined. The lower level of service charges on deposit accounts was impacted by regulatory changes that went into effect in the third quarter of 2010.
