Highlight of Business Operations:

United’s total assets as of June 30, 2009 were $7.85 billion which was a decline of $254.58 million or 3.14% from December 31, 2008. The decrease was primarily the result of decreases in portfolio loans, investment securities, and cash and cash equivalents of $124.00 million or 2.06%, $153.60 million or 11.89% and $11.64 million or 5.45%, respectively. The decrease in total assets is reflected in a corresponding decrease in total liabilities of $274.25 million or 3.72% from year-end 2008. The decrease in total liabilities was due mainly to a reduction of $351.75 million or 21.57% in borrowings while accrued expenses and other liabilities decreased $10.65 million or 12.64%. Deposits increased $87.96 million or 1.56% from year-end 2008. Shareholders’ equity increased $19.67 million or 2.67% from year-end 2008.

Loans held for sale increased $11.32 million as loan originations exceeded loan sales in the secondary market during the first six months of 2009. Portfolio loans, net of unearned income decreased $124.00 million or 2.06% from year-end 2008 due mainly to a decrease in commercial loans (not secured by real estate) of $155.10 million or 12.17%. Single-family residential real estate loans, commercial real estate loans and installment loans were relatively flat from year-end 2008, declining $3.68 million and increasing $3.72 million and $1.71 million, respectively. All of these changes were less than 1%. Construction loans and other real estate loans increased $19.67 million or 3.27% and $8.35 million or 3.40%, respectively.

The decrease in interest-bearing deposits was due mainly to a decline in time deposits under $100,000 of $349.85 million or 18.55%. Most of this decline was due mainly to a shift in Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS) balances to certificate of deposits over $100,000 as a result of the temporary increase in the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insurance coverage from $100,000 to $250,000. Interest bearing money market accounts (MMDAs) decreased $66.77 million or 4.96%. Time deposits over $100,000 increased $247.86 million or 24.50%. Regular savings balances increased $22.80 million or 7.07% and interest-bearing checking deposits increased $73.81 million or 42.16%.

Net income for the first six months of 2009 was $37.79 million or $0.87 per diluted share compared to $50.84 million or $1.17 per diluted share for the first six months of 2008. Net income for the second quarter of 2009 was $8.16 million or $0.19 per diluted share, as compared to $25.15 million or $0.58 per diluted share reported for the prior year second quarter.

Net interest income for the first six months of 2009 was $123.13 million, a decrease of $2.30 million or 1.84% from the prior year’s first six months. Net interest income for the second quarter of 2009 was $62.21 million, a decrease of $943 thousand or 1.49% from prior year’s second quarter. The provision for credit losses was $31.28 million and $23.25 million for the first six months and second quarter of 2009, respectively, as compared to $6.45 million or $4.35 million for the first six months and second quarter of 2008, respectively.

Net interest income for the first six months of 2009 was $123.13 million, a decrease of $2.30 million or 1.84% from the first six months of 2008. The $2.30 million decrease in net interest income occurred because total interest income declined $32.73 million while total interest expense only declined $30.42 million from the first six months of 2008. Net interest income for the second quarter of 2009 was $62.21 million, a decrease of $943 thousand or 1.49% from the second quarter of 2008. The $943 thousand decrease in net interest income occurred because total interest income declined $13.89 million while total interest expense only declined $12.94 million from the second quarter of 2008. On a linked-quarter basis, net interest income for the second quarter of 2009 increased $1.29 million or 2.12% from the first quarter of 2009. The $1.29 million increase in net interest income occurred because total interest income declined $2.17 million while total interest expense declined $3.47 million from the first quarter of 2009. For the purpose of this remaining discussion, net interest income is presented on a tax-equivalent basis to provide a comparison among all types of interest earning assets. The tax-equivalent basis adjusts for the tax-favored status of income from certain loans and investments. Although this is a non-GAAP measure, United’s management believes this measure is more widely used within the financial services industry and provides better comparability of net interest income arising from taxable and tax-exempt sources. United uses this measure to monitor net interest income performance and to manage its balance sheet composition.
