Our average cost of total deposits was 0.12% for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to our cost of total deposits of 0.17% for the same period last year.

Borrowings and Debentures
At September 30, 2012, we had $198.9 million in borrowings, compared to borrowings of $448.7 million at December 31, 2011. At September 30, 2012, we had $67.0 million in junior subordinated debentures, compared to $115.1 million at December 31, 2011.
On August 28, 2012, we redeemed five outstanding fixed rate loans from the Federal Home Loan Bank, in an aggregate principal amount of $250 million, with an average coupon of 3.39%. The repayment of these advances, which resulted in a $20.4 million termination expense on a pre-tax basis, was funded from Citizens Business Bank deposits at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.
We took this action to deleverage the balance sheet and reduce ongoing funding costs. The Bank focused this set of prepayments on five Federal Home Loan Bank loans, all maturing in 2015.
On September 17, 2012, we redeemed the remaining half of the outstanding capital and common securities issued by CVB Capital Trust I for consideration of $20.6 million.
We have separated the discussion of asset quality into two sections: non-covered loans and covered loans. The non-covered loans represent the legacy Citizens Business Bank loans and exclude all loans acquired in the SJB acquisition. The SJB loans are “covered” loans as defined in the loss sharing agreement with the FDIC. These loans were marked to fair value at the acquisition date.
Citizens Business Bank Asset Quality (Non-covered loans)
The allowance for credit losses decreased to $92.1 million and $91.9 million at September 30, 2012 and June 30, 2012, respectively, from $94.0 million at December 31, 2011. The increase for the third quarter was due to $175,000 in net loan recoveries. The decrease in the allowance for credit losses from December 31, 2011 was due to $1.9 million in net charge-offs for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The allowance for credit losses was 2.85%, 2.89%, 2.89% and 2.92% of total non-covered loans and leases outstanding at September 30, 2012, June 30, 2012, March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. There was zero provision for credit losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.
