Results of Operations
Net loss was $806 thousand in the first quarter of 2013 while net income was $57 thousand in the 2012 Successor Period and $529 thousand in the 2012 Predecessor Period. After preferred stock dividends, net loss attributable to common stockholders was $0.03 per common share in the first quarter of 2013.

On November 30, 2012, VantageSouth Bank ("Legacy VantageSouth") was merged with and into Crescent State Bank, a wholly-owned banking subsidiary of Crescent Financial Bancshares, Inc. ("Crescent Financial"), and the combined bank was re-branded as VantageSouth Bank. This merger was a combination of commonly controlled companies since both banks were subsidiaries of Piedmont, and it was accounted for in a manner similar to a pooling of interests transaction. Thus, the Company's financial statements were retrospectively adjusted to combine the financial condition and results of operations of Crescent Financial and Legacy VantageSouth from the date the two companies became commonly controlled. Due to the application of push-down accounting to Legacy VantageSouth's books on February 1, 2012 when Piedmont purchased the bank's remaining non-controlling equity interests, periods prior to this date are denoted as "Predecessor Company" and periods after this date are denoted as "Successor Company."
Net Interest IncomeNet interest income in the first quarter of 2013 totaled $9.9 million while net interest income totaled $6.9 million in the 2012 Successor Period and $3.6 million in the 2012 Predecessor Period. Taxable equivalent net interest margin decreased from 4.55 percent in the 2012 Predecessor Period and 4.42 percent in the 2012 Successor Period to 4.24 percent in the first quarter of 2013. The decrease in net interest margin was primarily due to a decline in earning asset yields resulting from the origination of new loans at lower current market rates and the reinvestment of matured or sold securities at lower current market rates. The average yield on loans declined from 6.15 percent in the 2012 Predecessor Period and 6.05 percent in the 2012 Successor Period to 5.54 percent in the first quarter of 2013, and the average yield on investment securities declined from 2.74 percent in the 2012 Predecessor Period and 2.75 percent in the 2012 Successor Period to 2.42 percent in the first quarter of 2013. The cost of interest-bearing liabilities partially offset lower earning asset yields as it fell from 0.95 percent in the 2012 Predecessor Period and 0.92 percent in the 2012 Successor Period to 0.76 percent in the first quarter of 2013.
