Core factors that largely accounted for earnings decrease through the quarter or an increase in operating expenses, the October 1st implementation of new debit interchange restrictions, compression of our net interest margin and our decision to keep newly originated 10- and 15-year residential mortgages in our portfolio. As a result of this mortgage decision and as to be expected, our sale gains were lower for the quarter.
