Summary. Total assets increased $17.9 million, or 2.1%, to $890.3 million at September 30, 2010 from $872.4 million at December 31, 2009, principally due to increases of $27.7 million in cash and cash equivalents and $6.7 million in loans held for sale, offset by decreases of $9.8 million in securities, $3.1 million in net loans receivable, $1.4 million in other real estate owned, $806,000 in net deferred tax assets, $782,000 in premises and equipment and $734,000 in prepaid FDIC deposit insurance assessment. Cash and cash equivalents increased as a result of an increase in deposits and security sales. The sale of mortgage-backed securities and U.S. government and agency obligations contributed to the decline in securities. The increase in net unrealized gains on available for sale securities resulted in a decrease in net deferred tax assets. Accumulated depreciation and amortization expense contributed to the decrease in premises and equipment at September 30, 2010.

Summary. Total liabilities were $808.4 million at September 30, 2010 compared to $794.9 million at December 31, 2009. Deposits, excluding escrow accounts, increased $15.5 million, or 2.4%, which included increases in NOW and money market accounts of $26.3 million and savings accounts of $1.5 million, offset by decreases in certificates of deposit of $11.6 million and noninterest-bearing deposits of $699,000. Deposit growth was attributable to marketing and promotional initiatives and competitively-priced deposit products. Borrowings decreased $1.9 million from $124.3 million at December 31, 2009 to $122.4 million at September 30, 2010, resulting from net repayments of Federal Home Loan Bank advances.

Summary. Total stockholders equity increased $4.4 million from $77.5 million at December 31, 2009 to $81.9 million at September 30, 2010. The increase in stockholders equity was attributable to an increase in net unrealized gains on securities aggregating $2.6 million (net of taxes) and earnings of $2.0 million, offset by dividends of $250,000 and a net unrealized loss on an interest rate swap derivative of $223,000. On July 1, 2010, the Company recognized a cumulative effect adjustment for a change in accounting principle of $652,000 as a reduction in retained earnings and a corresponding increase in accumulated other comprehensive income as a result of electing to fair value two investments in the Companys securities portfolio in accordance with guidance provided by FASBs Scope Exception Related to Embedded Credit Derivatives. See Note 1 under Recent Accounting Pronouncements for more details.

Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income.

Unrealized losses on available for sale securities at December 31, 2009 resulted from a decline in the market value of primarily the debt securities portfolio, which was recognized in accumulated other comprehensive loss on the consolidated balance sheets and a component of comprehensive income on the consolidated statement of changes in stockholders equity. A majority of the unrealized losses at December 31, 2009 related to the Companys collateralized debt obligations and non-agency mortgage-backed securities. The Company does not intend to sell such securities and it is not more likely than not that it will be required to sell such securities prior to the recovery of its amortized cost basis, which may be at maturity, less any credit losses.
