Purchased credit-impaired (PCI) loans, primarily acquired as part of a transaction with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, totaled $75.3 million at December 31, 2012, as compared to $88.5 million at December 31, 2011. The Company recorded accretion of interest income of $6.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2012.

The Company's securities available-for-sale portfolio totaled $1.28 billion at December 31, 2012, compared to $1.10 billion at December 31, 2011. At December 31, 2012, $1.18 billion of the portfolio consisted of residential mortgage-backed securities issued or guaranteed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or Ginnie Mae. The Company also held residential mortgage-backed securities not guaranteed by these three entities, referred to as "private label securities." The private label securities had an amortized cost of $7.5 million and an estimated fair value of $7.8 million at December 31, 2012. In addition to the above mortgage-backed securities, the Company held $74.4 million in corporate bonds which were all rated investment grade at December 31, 2012, and $13.0 million of equity investments in mutual funds, which focus on investments that qualify under the Community Reinvestment Act and money market mutual funds. 

Interest-bearing deposits in other financial institutions totaled $103.4 million at December 31, 2012, as compared to $49.7 million at December 31, 2011. The increase is primarily attributable to the funds received to purchase stock in our second step stock offering.

Total liabilities increased $404.1 million, or 20.3%, to $2.40 billion at December 31, 2012, from $1.99 billion at December 31, 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in deposits of $463.3 million, of which $240.6 million was from our second step stock offering, partially offset by a decrease in borrowings of $62.8 million.

The increase in deposits for the year ended December 31, 2012 was due to a $372.0 million, or 48.6%, increase in savings and money market accounts from December 31, 2011 (including $240.6 million of deposits from the second step stock offering and $38.4 million in deposits as a result of the Merger), and a $79.1 million, or 31.9%, increase in transaction accounts as compared to December 31, 2011 (including $5.5 million in deposits as a result of the Merger) and a $12.3 million, or 2.6%, increase in certificates of deposit accounts (including $67.6 million in deposits as a result of the Merger).
