Securities held to maturity decreased to $440 million at September 30, 2012 from $700 million at December 31, 2011, reflecting calls of securities exceeding new purchases. A portion of the resulting proceeds was used to fund planned deposit outflow and a portion was being held temporarily in cash and short-term investments as denoted above. At September 30, 2012, the securities portfolio, which represented 25% of total assets and was comprised nearly all of U.S. government agency debt ($347 million) and residential mortgage-backed pass through securities ($89 million), had a weighted-average expected yield, remaining life and remaining contractual maturity of 1.32%, 1.3 years and 7.2 years, respectively.
Loans totaled $1.15 billion at September 30, 2012, compared to $1.16 billion at December 31, 2011. The decrease reflected $132 million of payoffs, $33 million of amortization and $2.5 million of chargeoffs, mostly offset by $159 million of new loans. Loans paid off had a weighted-average yield of 6.24%. New loans, nearly all with fixed interest rates, had a weighted-average yield, term and loan-to-value ratio of 4.64%, 6.0 years and 58%, respectively.
Nonaccrual loans and REO aggregated to $70 million, or 4.0% of total assets, at September 30, 2012, compared to $86 million, or 4.3%, at December 31, 2011. Nonaccrual loans totaled $48 million at September 30, 2012 and $57 million at December 31, 2011, and included $39 million (12 loans) and $46 million (12 loans) of TDRs that were current at each date, respectively. One loan ($5.5 million) was upgraded and classified as an accruing TDR in June 2012. All the TDRs classified as nonaccrual have performed as agreed under their renegotiated terms and interest income is being recorded on a cash basis. Based on annual updated appraisals received on the underlying collateral properties, a portion of four TDRs (or $1.6 million of aggregate principal) was charged off for financial statement purposes during 9mths-12. The borrowers remain obligated to pay all contractual principal due on the TDRs.
