On a period end basis, covered loans acquired from CSB, Orion, and Century declined $109.1 million. Organic growth of $64.1 million offset the decreases on the covered assets. As a result, the total loan portfolio decreased $45.0 million, or 0.8%, during the first quarter of 2010.
The consumer loan portfolio decreased $7.8 million, or 0.7%, compared to December 31, 2009, driven primarily by the decrease in the covered consumer loan portfolio. Consumer loans covered by loss share agreements decreased $6.1 million, or 4.2%, during 2010. Consumer loan growth was also impacted by the Companys tightened underwriting standards, a response to a weakened national and regional economy. Offsetting the slight declines in consumer loan originations was an increase of $1.1 million in the Companys indirect automobile portfolio.
A $29.2 million decrease in mortgage loans to $979.1 million also contributed to the decrease for the first quarter. Of the decrease, $16.6 million, or 57.0%, was a result of a decrease in mortgage loans covered by loss share agreements. The remaining decrease was attributable to legacy assets, as loans were paid down and new mortgage loan originations slowed. The Company generally retains certain residential mortgage loans to high net worth individuals made through the private banking area. These mortgage loans traditionally have shorter durations and lower servicing costs and provide an opportunity to deepen client relationships. The Company does not originate or hold high loan to value, negative amortization, optional ARM, or other exotic mortgage loans in its portfolio.
