We define potential problem loans as performing loans rated substandard that do not meet the definition of a non-performing loan (See “Asset Quality” section above for non-performing loans). Potential problem loans carry a higher probability of default and require additional attention by management. The aggregate principal amount of potential problem loans was $149.8 million, or 2.51% of total loans, as of December 31, 2011, compared to $179.7 million, or 3.09% of total loans, as of September 30, 2011. The decrease was primarily due to loan risk rating upgrades and loan payments, as well as some downward migration to non-performing status.
