The increase was primarily due to a 75 basis point decrease in the cost of average interest-bearing liabilities offset by a 34 basis point decrease in the yield on average earning assets.
During the three-month period ended March 31, 2010, the provision for loan losses was $9.5 million, compared to $14.0 million in the same period of 2009.

For the three months ended March 31, 2010, total noninterest income was $5.6 million the same as reported at March 31, 2009.

These decreases were partially offset by a $0.7 million increase in security gains, a $0.2 million increase in cardholder and merchant service income and trust and investment services income.
Noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2010 was $14.8 million, compared to $15.6 million in the first quarter a year ago.
