The $2.8 million or $.38 per common share increase in net income for the third quarter of 2012 compared to the same quarter a year ago was mainly driven by a decrease of $3.5 million or 108% and $2.0 million or 57.1% in the provision for loan losses and expenses associated with repossessed real estate, respectively, partially offset by an increase in income tax expense of $1.9 million. Further information related to the more significant components making up the increase in net income follows.

Net Interest Income

The overall interest rate environment at September 30, 2012, as measured by the Treasury yield curve, remains at very low levels in historical terms. Shorter-term yields for three and six-month maturities have increased 8 basis points and 7 basis points, respectively since year-end 2011. For longer-term maturities, three year maturities decreased 5 basis points while the five, ten, and thirty year maturity periods declined 21, 24, and 7 basis points, respectively. At September 30, 2012, the short-term federal funds target interest rate was between zero and .25%, which has remained unchanged since December 2008. The Federal Reserve Board has indicated an objective of holding short-term interest rates at exceptionally low levels through mid-2015. The near historical low rate environment makes managing the Company's net interest margin very challenging.

Net interest income was $13.1 million for the current quarter, a decrease of $330 thousand or 2.5% compared to $13.4 million for the prior-year third quarter. The decrease in net interest income is attributed mainly to a $1.9 million or 9.8% decrease in interest income, primarily on loans, which was partially offset by a $1.6 million or 26.0% decrease in interest expense, primarily on deposits. The decrease in total interest income and interest expense is attributed to both rate and volume declines related mainly to loans and deposits and are the result of the overall weak economic environment combined with the Company's balance sheet management strategy. The overall weak economy has generally resulted in lower interest rates while the Company has become more selective in pricing deposits and extending loans, chiefly to reduce its costs of funds and improve net interest margin, overall profitability, and its capital position. The Company is generally earning and paying less interest from its earning assets and funding sources as the average rates earned and paid have decreased. This includes repricing of variable and floating rate assets and liabilities that have reset to overall lower amounts since their previous repricing date as well as activity related to new earning assets and funding sources. Additionally, an increase in available funds has been invested in lower yielding investment securities or cash equivalents in response to a decrease in high quality loan demand.


Interest income and interest expense related to nearly all categories of the Company's earning assets and interest paying liabilities have declined in the quarterly comparison. The $1.9 million decrease from interest income in the comparison is primarily made up of lower interest on loans and investment securities of $1.4 million or 8.9% and $550 thousand or 13.1%, respectively. The decrease in interest on loans was driven primarily by an $86.7 million or 7.7% decrease in average volume and, to a lesser extent, a decrease in the average rate earned of six basis points to 5.4% from 5.5%. For investment securities, the decrease in interest income is rate driven, as a 50 basis point decrease in the average rate earned of 2.5% more than offset a higher average balance outstanding of $40.0 million or 6.8%.

The $1.6 million decrease in interest expense is primarily a result of lower interest expense on deposits of $1.4 million or 39.7% followed by lower interest on borrowings of $173 thousand or 6.8%. The decrease in interest expense on deposits was driven by lower interest on time deposits of $1.2 million or 39.1% due to both a decrease in the average rate paid and volume declines. The average rate paid on time deposits was 1.3% and 1.8% for the current and prior years' third quarter, respectively. Average outstanding balances of time deposits were $574 million for the current quarter, a decrease of $107 million or 15.7% compared to a year earlier. Interest expense on borrowings decreased mainly as a result of maturities related to outstanding long-term Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advances.

The net interest margin on a taxable equivalent basis increased six basis points to 3.13% for the third quarter of 2012 compared to 3.07% in the same quarter of 2011. The increase in net interest margin was driven by an eight basis point increase in the spread between the average rate earned on earning assets and the average rate paid on interest bearing liabilities to 2.91% in the current quarter from 2.83% for the same quarter of 2011. The Company expects its net interest margin to trend upward in the near term according to internal modeling using expectations about future market interest rates, the maturity structure of the Company's earning assets and liabilities, and other factors. In particular, the Company's cost of funds is expected to decrease in the near term primarily from the maturity of $50.0 million of 3.98% fixed rate FHLB borrowings combined with $23.2 million of 6.60% fixed rate borrowings that reprice downward to a floating interest rate of three-month LIBOR plus 132 basis points. Each of these events occur during the fourth quarter of 2012. Future results could be significantly different than expectations.


The following tables present an analysis of net interest income for the quarterly periods ended September 30.
