The Company’s net interest margin decreased to 1.22% for the third quarter of 2012 from 1.49% in the second quarter of 2012 as a result of compression in portfolio yield. The Company’s cost of funds (including hedges) was 0.94%, unchanged from the second quarter of 2012. The Company’s average repurchase agreement (repo) rate for the third quarter of 2012 was 0.41%, up from 0.36% in the second quarter of 2012. The weighted average interest rate on interest rate swaps declined from 1.54% in the second quarter of 2012 to 1.48% in the third quarter as maturing swaps were generally replaced with new lower-cost swap positions. Operating expenses were relatively flat with prior quarter at $6.0 million for the third quarter of 2012 versus $6.1 million for the second quarter of 2012. Total annualized expenses were 0.84% of average shareholders’ equity for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, slightly below the previous quarter at 0.88%.
