The overall decline in operating results for the 2011 periods compared to the same periods in 2010 is a result of the ongoing losses associated with the loan portfolio and foreclosed real estate. During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011, the Company recorded provisions for loan losses of $1.4 million and $1.5 million compared to $570,000 and $704,000 during the same periods in 2010.

The Company reduced non-performing assets (non-accrual loans and foreclosed real estate) by 33.6% from $14.9 million at March 31, 2011 to $9.9 million at June 30, 2011. As a result of this improvement and the Company’s continued strategy focused on reducing excess balance sheet liquidity and reducing the cost of our interest-bearing liabilities, the Company’s net interest income improved by approximately $84,000 and $194,000 for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011 as compared to the prior year periods. In addition, the Company increased non-interest income by approximately $213,000 and $888,000 for the three and six month periods as a result of strength in the Company’s electronic banking, investment brokerage and mortgage origination businesses.
