As a result of continued account growth over recent periods and increased customer activity, deposit fees and other service charges were $6.3 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared to $5.9 million in the preceding quarter and a 10% increase compared to $5.7 million in the second quarter a year ago. Significant homeowner refinance activity contributed to strong revenues from mortgage banking activities, which increased 8% to $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared to $2.6 million in the immediately preceding quarter. Income from mortgage banking operations was $855,000 in the second quarter of 2011.“Operating expenses declined for the second quarter compared to the preceding quarter and the second quarter a year ago, largely due to lower costs associated with the real estate owned portfolio, particularly valuation adjustments, and a reduction in our deposit insurance premiums,” said Grescovich. “We believe credit costs, including REO expenses, will continue to decline as we continue to resolve remaining problem assets.”
