Mid Penn's earnings for the first quarter of 2013 were below our expectations for the start of the new year. Loans outstanding started the year on a decline stemming from a combination of early payoffs and lack of new lending volume. This situation stabilized late in the quarter, and we were able to record an increase in loans year over year. The depressed loan levels throughout much of the first quarter contributed to the reduced net interest income, but we anticipate a rebound in interest income from the growth in earning assets going forward. The provision for loan and lease losses is reflective of specific issues, as well as the growth in the portfolio. Noninterest expenses are being negatively impacted by actual medical claims in Mid Penn's self-funded medical insurance plan.
