Loans, net of premiums, discounts and deferred fees and costs, increased to $5.6 billion at December 31, 2012 from $4.1 billion at December 31, 2011.

Covered loans declined to $1.9 billion at December 31, 2012 from $2.4 billion at December 31, 2011.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, new commercial loans, including commercial loans, commercial real estate loans and leases, grew $1.5 billion to $2.7 billion, primarily reflecting the Company’s continued expansion of market share in Florida. New residential loans grew by $459.2 million to $922.7 million during 2012, primarily as a result of the purchase of residential loans outside of Florida to diversify credit risk within the residential portfolio.

In the fourth quarter of 2012, new commercial loans grew by $319.7 million while the Company’s new residential portfolio grew by $114.1 million.

A comparison of portfolio composition at December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 follows:

Asset Quality

Asset quality remained strong. Credit risk continues to be limited, though to a declining extent, by the Loss Sharing Agreements with the FDIC. At December 31, 2012, covered loans represented 33% of the total loan portfolio, as compared to 59% at December 31, 2011.
