I am pleased to report earnings available to common shareholders of $1,138,000 for the third quarter of 2012; our fifth consecutive quarter with over $1,000,000 in such earnings. Our performance in 2012 continues to be driven by steady improvement in cost of funds; a good year in most noninterest income business lines; continued stability in loan portfolio quality; and success in managing controllable noninterest expenses. While we are satisfied with a double digit percentage increase in earnings available to common shareholders over 2011, we know we can achieve more. We remain confident in our ability to deliver.
