Non-interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, was down $169,000, or 10.2%, to $1.5 million from the comparable period in 2011, partially due to a non-cash, pre-tax impairment of $57,000 related to the Bank’s write-down of a single asset-backed security during the second quarter of 2012. The impairment charge was attributable to a significant decline in the market value of a bond that is not expected to be recovered over its term. During the nine month period ended September 30, 2011, the Bank recognized a total gain of $88,000 due to the sale of investments, as well as a recovery on previously impaired investments.Third quarter 2012 non-interest expense increased $96,000, or 3.5%, to $2.9 million compared to the prior year period. This increase reflected higher salary and benefit expenses and increased professional service costs which were partially offset by lower advertising and other expenses.
