Highlight of Business Operations:

Summary We incurred a net loss of $18.3 million and a net loss applicable to common stock of $19.4 million during the three months ended September 30, 2009, compared to a net loss of $5.3 million during the comparable period in 2008. The 2009 loss is primarily due to increases in the provision for loan losses and non-interest expenses. These changes were partially offset by increases in net interest income and non-interest income.

We incurred a net loss of $42.1 million and a net loss applicable to common stock of $45.3 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to a net loss of $1.6 million during the comparable period in 2008. The reasons for the changes in the year-to-date comparative periods are generally commensurate with the quarterly comparative periods.

We review yields on certain asset categories and our net interest margin on a fully taxable equivalent basis. This presentation is not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) but is customary in the banking industry. In this non-GAAP presentation, net interest income is adjusted to reflect tax-exempt interest income on an equivalent before-tax basis. This measure ensures comparability of net interest income arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources. The adjustments to determine tax equivalent net interest income were $0.5 million and $1.1 million for the third quarters of 2009 and 2008, respectively, and were $1.8 million and $3.8 million for the first nine months of 2009 and 2008, respectively. These adjustments were computed using a 35% tax rate.

Average interest-earning assets totaled $2.761 billion and $2.765 billion during the three- and nine-month periods in 2009, respectively. The decreases in average interest-earning assets since 2008 are due primarily to declines in both loans and securities.

Our tax equivalent net interest income is also adversely impacted by our level of non-accrual loans. In the third quarter and first nine months of 2009 non-accrual loans averaged $119.5 million and $122.8 million, respectively compared to $115.4 million and $101.0 million, respectively for the same periods in 2008. In addition, in the third quarter and first nine months of 2009 we reversed $0.4 million and $2.0 million, respectively, of accrued and unpaid interest on loans placed on non-accrual during each period compared to $0.3 million and $1.8 million, respectively during the same periods in 2008.

Non-interest income totaled $12.8 million during the three months ended September 30, 2009, a $7.3 million increase from the comparable period in 2008. This increase was primarily due to increases in gains on mortgage loans and securities. For the first nine months of 2009 non-interest income totaled $45.4 million, a $16.3 million increase from the comparable period in 2008. The components of the year to date changes are generally commensurate with the quarterly changes.
