Non-interest income increased $12.72 million, or 174 percent, to $20.03 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 from $7.31 million in the same period of fiscal 2012, primarily as a result of an $11.98 million increase in the gain on sale of loans. On a sequential quarter basis, non-interest income decreased $2.12 million, or 10 percent, primarily as a result of a $2.72 million decrease in the gain on sale of loans, partly offset by a $522,000 increase in the net gain on sale and operations of real estate owned acquired in the settlement of loans.
