Credit Quality

Nonperforming loans totaled $946,000, or 1.32% of total loans at March 31, 2012, compared to $1,384,000 or 1.89% of total loans three months earlier and $922,000, or 0.99% of total loans a year ago. During the first quarter of 2012, the reduction in nonperforming loans was primarily due to two loans that migrated out of nonperforming due in part to one being reimbursed by the SBA as it was guaranteed and one being due to sale of the business that netted the bank proceed from the sale. Thus, the net decrease as compared to the prior quarter-end is approximately $437,000.
