As previously announced, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a fiscal year-end change from March 31 to a calendar year-end of December 31. This change was effective as of December 31, 2012; therefore the Company operated a short year from April 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012 and then began a new fiscal year on January 1, 2013. Conversion of the fiscal year to a calendar year is intended to simplify reporting and more closely align the Company with its peer banks.
