During the year ended December 31, 2012, net interest income totaled $66,248,000 representing an increase of $2,267,000 or 4% from the year ended December 31, 2011 net interest income of $63,981,000. The increased net interest income during 2012 compared with 2011 was driven by a higher level of earning assets including both average loan growth and growth in the securities portfolio. The tax equivalent net interest margin for the year ended December 31, 2012 was 3.74% compared to 3.84% in 2011. The decline in the net interest margin during 2012 compared with the 2011 was largely attributable to the continued downward pressure on earning asset yields being driven by a historically low market interest rate environment and a very competitive marketplace for lending opportunities. Partially mitigating the decline in earning assets yields was a 35 basis points decline in the Company's cost of funds during 2012 compared to 2011 which was driven by a continued decline in deposit rates.
