[1] Covered loans represent loans acquired in the Westernbank FDIC-assisted transaction that are covered under FDIC loss sharing agreements.
[2] During the second quarter, the Corporation discontinued the elimination of its proportionate ownership share of intercompany transactions with EVERTEC from their respective revenue and expense categories to reflect them as an equity pick-up adjustment in Other Operating Income. This results in a gross up of operating expenses with a corresponding increase in other operating income. The results of operations for all periods presented have been adjusted to reflect this change.
