Noninterest income decreased $114,000, or 19.5%, to $471,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $585,000 for the same period in 2010, due to decreases in mortgage origination fee income and service charges and fees, combined with an increase in net losses on the disposition of other real estate owned (“OREO”). For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011, noninterest income remained stable at $4.0 million compared to the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010, and included an increase in gain on investment securities totaling $802,000 that offset an increase in net losses on the disposition of OREO totaling $614,000 and a decrease in service charges and fees totaling $331,000.

At June 30, 2011, total assets were $562.1 million compared to $630.8 million at June 30, 2010. Investment securities increased $12.0 million, or 19.1%, to $75.0 million at June 30, 2011 compared to $63.0 million at June 30, 2010, primarily due to new purchases exceeding sales and calls of securities. Net loans decreased $54.6 million, or 12.6%, to $379.8 million at June 30, 2011, compared to $434.4 million at June 30, 2010, due primarily to a combination of reduced loan demand and normal pay-downs on existing loans. Reduced loan demand is primarily the result of continued economic weakness in the Bank’s market areas.
