Noninterest income for the third quarter of 2012 totaled $13.6 million, a decrease of $0.3 million, or 2.4%, from the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of $0.6 million, or 4.4%, from the third quarter of 2011. The decrease from the second quarter of 2012 was driven primarily by lower wealth management fees (trust fees and retail brokerage fees) of $0.2 million and bank card fees of $0.2 million, partially offset by higher mortgage banking fees of $0.1 million. Compared to the third quarter of 2011, the decrease primarily reflects a reduction in deposit fees of $0.2 million, wealth management fees of $0.2 million, data processing fees of $0.1 million, and other income of $0.5 million, partially offset by higher mortgage banking fees of $0.3 million. For the first nine months of 2012, noninterest income totaled $41.1 million, a decrease of $3.9 million from the same period of 2011 reflective of lower data processing fees of $0.4 million, wealth management fees of $0.4 million, and other income of $4.6 million, partially offset by higher mortgage banking fees of $0.9 million and bank card fees of $0.5 million. Data processing fees declined due to a reduction in the number of banks that we process for as two of our user banks were acquired and discontinued service in early 2011. The reduction in wealth management fees reflects a decline in trust fees reflective of a lower level of assets under management due to account distributions, and a decrease in retail brokerage fees due to lower client trading activity. The decrease in other income was primarily attributable to the Visa gain realized in the first quarter of 2011 and a lower level of gains from the sale of OREO properties. Increased loan origination drove the higher level of mortgage banking fees reflecting increased home purchase activity in our markets. The increase in bank card fees was attributable to an increase in active cards and higher card utilization.
