Highlight of Business Operations:

Net loss for the second quarter of 2009 was $9.2 million, an increased loss of $7.2 million, or 354.5%, from a net loss of $2.0 million for the second quarter of 2008. Net loss available to common shareholders was $9.6 million for the second quarter of 2009, an increased loss of $7.6 million, or 376.2%, from the net loss available to common shareholders of $2.0 million for the second quarter of 2008. Diluted loss per common share for the second quarter of 2009 was $2.62, an increased loss of $2.06, or 367.9%, from diluted loss per share of $0.56 for the second quarter of 2008. The increase in the net loss for the quarter was primarily due to the $12.2 million increase in the provision for loan losses on commercial and commercial real estate loans. Net loss was also adversely affected by a $3.1 million increase in losses on other real estate owned when compared to the same period of 2008.

Net loss was $11.8 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2009, an increased loss of $11.3 million from the $537,000 loss for the six month period ended June 30, 2008. The net loss available to common shareholders was $12.7 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2009, an increased loss of $12.2 million, from the net loss available to common shareholders of $537,000 for the same period of 2008. Diluted loss per share for the six month period in 2009 was $3.45, an increased loss of $3.30, from the diluted loss per share of $0.15 for the same

The provision for loan losses was $13.3 million for the second quarter of 2009, an increase of $12.2 million, from $1.1 million for the second quarter of 2008. The provision for loan losses increased primarily as the result of an increase in the loan loss allowance recorded for specific commercial real estate loans due to decreases in the estimated value of the underlying collateral supporting the loans. An additional provision for loan losses of $2.9 million was recorded on two non-performing residential development loans and a $3.0 million provision for loan losses was established on two alternative fuel plants based on updated appraised values. An analysis of the loan portfolio during the quarter resulted in a $2.7 million increase in the loan loss provision for other risk rated loans. The loan loss provision for the second quarter of 2009 also includes a $3.7 million increase related to a commercial loan that was charged off after it was determined that the collateral supporting the loan did not exist or was inadequate. The apparently fraudulent actions by the borrower resulted in the same equipment being used as collateral on a number of different loans to various lenders. The borrower currently has a limited capacity to pay back the loan and there is substantial doubt that there will be any recovery related to the loan, therefore, the entire balance of the loan was charged off during the quarter.

Non-interest income was $2.2 million for the second quarter of 2009, an increase of $440,000, or 25.1%, from $1.8 million for the same period in 2008. Gains on sales of loans increased $714,000 between the periods due to increased single family loan originations as a result of increased refinance activity. Fees and service charges decreased $78,000 between the periods primarily because of decreased service charges and overdraft fees. Loan servicing fees increased $16,000 between the periods primarily because of increased commercial loan servicing fees. Other non-interest income decreased $217,000 primarily because of decreased income from the sale of uninsured investment products.

Non-interest expense was $10.5 million for the second quarter of 2009, an increase of $713,000, or 7.3%, from $9.8 million for the same period of 2008. Other non-interest expense increased $4.6 million primarily because of an increase of $3.1 million for losses recognized on real estate owned due to a decrease in the value of the underlying collateral. Other non-interest expense also increased $633,000 due to increased Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) assessments, $461,000 for interest on a pending state tax assessment as a result of

Non-interest expense was $18.9 million for the first six months of 2009, an increase of $2.8 million, or 17.5%, from $16.1 million for the same period of 2008. Other non-interest expense increased $6.3 million primarily because of an increase of $4.2 million for losses recognized on other real estate owned due to a decrease in the value of the underlying collateral. Other non-interest expense also increased $855,000 due to increased Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) assessments, $461,000 for interest on a pending state tax assessment as a result of an unfavorable tax court ruling, $416,000 due to increased foreclosure expenses and costs related to real estate owned as a result of foreclosure, and $223,000 due to increased legal fees primarily related to the state tax assessment challenge. Compensation and benefits increased $737,000 primarily because of increased costs associated with the employment agreement of a former executive officer and increased personnel in the mortgage, computer operations and commercial loan recovery areas. These increases were offset by a $3.8 million decrease in a goodwill impairment charge. Occupancy expense decreased $192,000 primarily because of a decrease in depreciation expense and a reduction in non-capitalized equipment purchases. Data processing costs decreased $264,000 due to decreases in third party vendor charges for internet and other banking services as a result of the system conversion that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2008.
