Deposit costs decreased by four basis points in the second quarter compared to the preceding quarter and 32 basis points compared to the second quarter a year earlier. Total funding costs for the second quarter of 2012 decreased 11 basis points compared to the previous quarter and 37 basis points from the second quarter a year ago. Asset yields increased four basis points compared to the prior quarter and decreased 19 basis points from the second quarter a year ago. Loan yields increased four basis points compared to the preceding quarter and decreased 16 basis points from the second quarter a year ago. Nonaccrual loans reduced the margin by approximately eight basis points in the second quarter of 2012 compared to approximately 13 basis points in the preceding quarter and approximately 23 basis points in the second quarter of 2011. The collection of previously unrecognized interest on certain nonaccrual loans added five basis points to the margin in the current quarter ended June 30, 2012.
“The continued growth in core deposits and the reduced drag from non-performing assets over the past year have led to a solid increase in our revenues from core operations* compared to the second quarter a year ago,” said Grescovich. Second quarter net interest income, before the provision for loan losses, was $42.3 million, compared to $41.1 million in the preceding quarter and $41.2 million in the second quarter a year ago. In the first six months of 2012, net interest income, before the provision for loan losses, was $83.4 million compared to $81.3 million in the first six months of 2011. Revenues from core operations* were $52.3 million in the second quarter compared to $50.4 million in the first quarter of 2012 and $48.5 million in the second quarter a year ago. Year-to-date revenues from core operations* increased 7% to $102.7 million compared to $95.6 million in the same period a year ago.
