Financial Highlights

Net interest income, on a taxable-equivalent basis, for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $92.7 million, down $3.5 million from net interest income of $96.2 million in the third quarter of 2012 and down $4.5 million from net interest income of $97.2 million in the fourth quarter last year. Net interest income, on a taxable-equivalent basis, for the full year of 2012 was $386.7 million, a decrease of $5.6 million from net interest income of $392.3 million in 2011. Analyses of changes in net interest income are included in Tables 8a, 8b and 8c.

The net interest margin was 2.87 percent for the fourth quarter of 2012, an 11 basis point decrease from the previous quarter and a 17 basis point decrease from the same quarter last year. The net interest margin for the full year of 2012 was 2.97 percent, a 16 basis point decrease from 3.13 percent in 2011. The reduction in the net interest margin was largely the result of lower interest rates which resulted in decreased yields on loans and investments.

During the fourth and third quarters of 2012, the Company did not record a provision for credit losses. Net loans and leases charged-off were $2.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2012.

The increase compared with the prior year quarter was largely due to strong mortgage banking revenue of $11.3 million during the fourth quarter of 2012 compared with $3.4 million in the fourth quarter last year. Noninterest income for the full year of 2012 was $200.3 million compared with noninterest income of $197.7 million in 2011.
