Third Quarter 2012 Results(All comparisons refer to the second quarter of 2012, except as noted) Net Interest Income Net interest income for the third quarter of 2012 totaled $49.5 million, decreasing $2.4 million or 4.7% from the prior quarter. The decrease was primarily driven by a 3.8% reduction in average earning assets as we successfully exited non-strategic loans and slightly reduced the investment portfolio. In addition, the third quarter net interest margin equaled 3.92% representing a narrowing of 8 basis points from the prior quarter as the continued low interest rate environment provided lower reinvestment yields for the investment portfolio coupled with lower prepayments on acquired non 310-30 loans, thereby decreasing the accelerated recognition of acquisition discounts. The cost of interest bearing liabilities continued its downward trend, declining 10 basis points from the second quarter of 2012.
