Highlight of Business Operations:

At March 31, 2010, the ACL was $1,527.9 million, or 4.14% of total loans and leases. To illustrate the potential effect on the financial statements of our estimates of the ACL, a 50 basis point increase in the ACL would have required $184.7 million in additional reserves (funded by additional provision for credit losses), which would have negatively impacted net income for the first three-month period of 2010 by approximately $120.0 million after-tax, or $0.17 per common share.

Alt-A mortgage-backed / Private-label CMO securities represent securities collateralized by first-lien residential mortgage loans. At March 31, 2010, our Alt-A securities portfolio had a fair value of $113.7 million, and our CMO securities portfolio had a fair value of $462.7 million. As the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement of these securities in its entirety was a Level 3 input, we classified all securities within these portfolios as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy. The securities were priced with the assistance of an outside third-party specialist using a discounted cash flow approach and the independent third-party’s proprietary pricing model. The model used inputs such as estimated prepayment speeds, losses, recoveries, default rates that were implied by the underlying performance of collateral in the structure or similar structures, discount rates that were implied by market prices for similar securities, collateral structure types, and house price depreciation/appreciation rates that were based upon macroeconomic forecasts.

Our analysis indicated, as of March 31, 2010, a total of 4 Alt-A mortgage-backed securities and 10 private-label CMO securities could experience a loss of principal in the future. The future expected losses of principal on these other-than-temporarily impaired securities ranged from 1.33% to 88.79% of their par value. These losses were projected to occur beginning anywhere from 6 months to 21 months in the future. We measured the amount of credit impairment on these securities using the cash flows discounted at each security’s effective rate. As a result, during the 2010 first quarter, we recorded $0.6 million of other-than-temporary impairment (OTTI) in our Alt-A mortgage-backed securities portfolio and $2.6 million of OTTI in our private-label CMO securities portfolio. These OTTI adjustments negatively impacted our earnings.

OREO property obtained in satisfaction of a loan is recorded at its estimated fair value less anticipated selling costs based upon the property’s appraised value at the date of transfer, with any difference between the fair value of the property, less anticipated selling costs, and the carrying value of the loan charged to the ALLL. Subsequent declines in value are reported as adjustments to the carrying amount, and are charged to noninterest expense. Gains or losses not previously recognized resulting from the sale of OREO are recognized in noninterest expense on the date of sale. At March 31, 2010, OREO totaled $152.3 million, representing a 9% increase compared with $140.1 million at December 31, 2009.
