In closing, Inverso commented, "The Company's balance sheet remains strong. As previously cited, the reduction in deposits has been tactically driven as one facet of our goal to reduce excess liquidity and improve our interest rate risk by lowering rates on our deposit products. As measured by current regulatory standards we remain well capitalized. We look forward to the consummation of our merger with Investors Bancorp."
