The improvement in operating results for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, as compared to the same period in 2010, is primarily a result of a $2.3 million decline in the provision for loan losses, as well as an $801,000 decline in noninterest expenses.

These improvements were partially offset by higher costs associated with foreclosed real estate and lower net interest income earned on a smaller asset base. During the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $2.2 million compared to $4.1 million during the same period in 2010. Expenses and losses associated with foreclosed real estate were $1.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2011 as compared to $889,000 for 2010.
