Noninterest expense for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 decreased $866,000 to $25.3 million from $26.2 million, as compared to the same period in 2011. The decrease in noninterest expense during 2012 was primarily due to decreases in our FDIC deposit insurance expense of $1.4 million and a decrease of $589,000 in our insurance and bond premiums as a result of the termination of the Consent Order. These decreases were partially offset by proxy and related litigation expenses of $1.1 million, which is net of a refund receivable from our Directors and Officers' insurance incurred during 2012. There were no comparable expenses incurred during 2011.In December 2012, First Financial Northwest, Inc. and the Stilwell Group announced that a settlement was reached regarding the litigation in which the Stilwell Group challenged the counting of votes in a contested director election at the Company's 2012 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.
