Interest income on loans declined primarily due to the $666 million decrease in the average loan balance. The primary cause of this decrease in loan balances was due to loan sales as discussed in Note 5, Loan Sales and Transactions of the Consolidated Financial Statements of this Form 10-Q. An additional reason for the decrease in interest from loans is the growth in nonperforming assets which were $467.3 million at March 31, 2010 compared to $271.1 million at March 31, 2009. The Company is not accruing interest on these loans.
Interest income from securities decreased as a result of selling a majority of the trading securities during the third quarter of 2009 and from sales of securities from the AFS portfolio during the last two quarters. During the first quarter of 2010, $35.1 million of MBS securities and $9.1 million of other types of securities from the AFS securities portfolio were sold and $138.9 million of U.S. Agency AFS securities were called, reducing the balance of AFS securities held. A $4.5 million gain on sale of securities sold during the first quarter of 2010 was realized. At the same time, the interest rate for some of the adjustable rate securities has adjusted lower due to the decrease in long term interest rates.
