- The Company's net loss narrowed on both a year-earlier and linked-quarter basis, primarily due to reduced operating expenses along with a higher amount of non-interest income for both comparisons, and a reduced provision for loan losses on a linked-quarter basis.
- Non-performing assets decreased 12.0% to $46.1 million at March 31, 2012, from $52.4 million on December 31, 2011, with improvements in both non-performing loans and other real estate owned. Subsequent to the end of the first quarter, the Company agreed to a short sale of a non-performing commercial real estate loan that, with an anticipated closing in the second quarter, will result in an additional reduction of non-performing assets of $1.3 million.
- Annualized net charge-offs to average loans increased to 3.91% for the first quarter of 2012 from 3.34% for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net charge-offs included $1.7 million related to the short sale discussed above, of which $1.1 million had been reserved for in 2011.
- Total assets were $776.8 million at March 31, 2012, compared with $810.1 million at March 31, 2011, as the Company has continued to manage asset size consistent with its overall capital management strategy.
