The non-accretable discount decreased to $54.2 million at the end of the third quarter of 2012 from $66.5 million on a linked-quarter basis, primarily driven by the clearing of $3.6 million of discount in conjunction with the resolution of FDIC-assisted loans and transfers to accretable discount of $8.7 million. The accretable discount increased to $24.4 million for the third quarter of 2012 from $18.8 million on a linked-quarter basis, primarily due to the transfer from the non-accretable discount as a result of the improvement in cash flows, partially offset by loan discount accretion of $4.8 million for the current quarter which compares with $2.1 million on a linked-quarter basis.
Annualized net charge-offs to average outstanding loans, excluding loans acquired in FDIC-assisted acquisitions, were down to 0.24% for the third quarter of 2012 versus 0.73% for the third quarter of 2011. Total non-performing assets, excluding assets acquired in FDIC-assisted acquisitions, reversed an improving trend as a percentage of assets compared with the prior year and were $17.8 million or 1.68% of total assets for the third quarter of 2012 compared with $9.8 million or 0.89% of total assets for the same quarter in 2011. The primary reason for the increase in non-performing assets was the migration of two relationships totaling $6.0 million to non-performing status. One of the relationships totaling $3.5 million was classified a troubled-debt restructuring and additional collateral of $6.1 million has been secured. The other relationship was a Chapter 11 bankruptcy where the collateral deficiency is fully reserved as of the current quarter. Both of these relationships were previously identified as criticized assets. Other real estate owned and repossessed assets, excluding assets acquired in FDIC-assisted acquisitions, totaled $1.4 million for the third quarter of 2012, down from $1.8 million for the same quarter in 2011.
The provision for loan losses on non-FDIC-acquired loans decreased 25% to $750,000 for the third quarter of 2012 from $1.0 million for the same quarter in 2011, primarily driven by improving net charge-off trends. For the third quarter in 2012, the allowance for loan losses represented 1.57% of total loans outstanding, excluding loans acquired in FDIC-assisted acquisitions, versus 1.65% for the same quarter in 2011.
