Non-Interest ExpenseNon-interest expense increased to $54.8 million in the second quarter of 2011 compared with $11.5 million in the second quarter of 2010. The increase was due largely to a one-time goodwill impairment charge of $23.8 million and a significant increase in OREO expense compared with the second quarter of 2010. OREO expense increased to $22.1 million in the second quarter of 2011 compared with $3.9 million in the second quarter of 2010, due primarily to increased losses on sales of OREO, OREO write-downs to reflect current market values, the result of our strategy change in regard to certain projects, and OREO maintenance expense. Loan collection expense increased to $925,000 in the 2011 second quarter compared with $182,000 in the prior year second quarter, due primarily to a confidential settlement in a lawsuit during the month of June. FDIC insurance premiums rose to $855,000 in the second quarter of 2011 compared with $706,000 in the second quarter of 2010. Salaries and employee benefits expense increased to $4.2 million in the second quarter of 2011 compared with $3.9 million in the prior year’s second quarter due to merit raises and increases in staff, primarily in the credit and problem asset workout areas.
