Loan originations for the first six months of 2012 totaled $11.3 million, compared to $2.3 million for the first six months of 2011. Loan repayments for the first six months of 2012 totaled $34.7 million, compared to $12.8 million for the comparable period in 2011. The increase in loan repayments was primarily attributable to a higher level of refinancings by borrowers who could take advantage of historically low interest rates and new financing opportunities in the stabilized commercial and single family markets. Loans transferred to REO during the first six months of 2012 totaled $2.7 million, compared to $6.4 million during the first six months of 2011. There were no loans transferred to loans held for sale during the first six months of 2012, compared to $1.1 million of loans transferred to loans held for sale during the first six months of 2011.

Loans held for sale decreased from $13.0 million at December 31, 2011 to $12.6 million at June 30, 2012. The $409 thousand decrease during the first six months of 2012 was primarily due to loan repayments and charge-offs.

Since year-end 2011, FHLB borrowings remained unchanged at $83.0 million and were equal to 21% and 20% of total assets at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. During the second quarter of 2012, $13.5 million of FHLB advances were restructured which resulted in a decrease of the weighted average cost of advances from 3.09% at December 31, 2011 to 2.56% at June 30, 2012.
