(2) Includes $12.7 million for unfunded credit commitments at March 31, 2011.
The activity in the second quarter of 2011 reflects the previously disclosed sale of certain performing, sub-performing and non-performing loans, which resulted in approximately $87.6 million in charge-offs and an increase in the provision for credit losses of approximately $50 million.
