The $257,000 or 48.0% increase reflects a $169,000 increase in net interest income, decreases in non-interest expense and the provision for loan losses of $81,000 and $250,000, respectively, offset by a $138,000 decrease in non-interest income and by an increase of $105,000 in the provision for income taxes.

Total assets increased $11.9 million or 4.5% to $276.5 million at December 31, 2012 compared to $264.6 million at December 31, 2011. The increase primarily reflected an $18.1 million decrease in cash and cash equivalents, a $15.2 million or 20.9% increase in investment securities and a $15.0 million or 11.4% increase in net loans. The Company continued its efforts to expand its loan portfolio during 2012. Total deposits increased by $10.3 million or 4.6% to $234.0 million at December 31, 2012. The increase reflected normal seasonal growth. 

Stockholders' equity increased by $1.3 million or 3.3% to $40.3 million at December 31, 2012 as compared to $39.0 million at December 31, 2011.
