Provision for Loan LossesThe provision for loan losses was $2.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $14.8 million, from $17.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. The provision decreased between the periods primarily because there were fewer decreases in the estimated value of the underlying collateral supporting commercial real estate loans that required additional allowances or charge offs in 2012 when compared to 2011. The provision also decreased because of the $106 million decrease in the loan portfolio between the periods. Total non-performing assets were $40.6 million at December 31, 2012, a decrease of $10.0 million, or 19.8%, from $50.6 million at December 31, 2011. Non-performing loans decreased $4.0 million and foreclosed and repossessed assets decreased $6.0 million during 2012. The non-performing loan and foreclosed and repossessed asset activity for 2012 was as follows:

Gains on sales of loans increased $1.9 million, or 115.8%, between the periods primarily because of an increase in single family loan originations and sales. Gain on sale of branch office increased $0.6 million as a result of the sale of the Toledo, Iowa branch in the first quarter of 2012. Fees and service charges decreased $0.4 million primarily because of a decrease in overdraft charges between the periods.

Compensation and benefits expense decreased $1.1 million between the periods primarily as a result of having fewer employees and also because of a decrease in pension benefit costs. Other non-interest expenses decreased $1.0 million between the periods primarily because of a decrease in real estate taxes and legal fees related to other real estate owned. Occupancy expense decreased $0.4 million primarily because of a decrease in depreciation and other expenses as a result of having fewer branch facilities.
