Average first-quarter deposits were $22.4 billion, up 11 percent from the year-ago period but down 4 percent from the fourth quarter of 2012. Period-end deposits totaled $22.9 billion, up 10 percent from March 31, 2012 but down 2 percent from December 31, 2012. The declines from the fourth quarter of 2012 reflect traditional seasonal business patterns.

First-quarter average commercial loans were up 29 percent from the same period in 2012 and 8 percent higher than the fourth quarter of 2012. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to organic loan growth, as well as the acquisition of First American Equipment Finance in the second quarter of 2012.
