Net income available to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2010 decreased by 10.3% and net income available to common shareholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 decreased by 6.4% as compared to the same periods in 2009. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was positively affected by gains on investment securities sales totaling $20 million, net of tax, that occurred in the first and second quarters. The sales of the securities were to facilitate a re-positioning of the Companys investment portfolio. Net income was negatively affected by a dispute related to certain tax matters that were inherited by the Company in its 2004 acquisition of LFIN. The dispute involves claims by the former controlling shareholders of LFIN related to approximately $14 million of tax refunds received by the Company based on deductions taken in 2003 by LFIN in connection with losses on loans acquired from a failed thrift and a dispute LFIN had with the FDIC regarding the tax benefits related to the failed thrift acquisition which originated in 1988. On March 5, 2010, judgment was entered on a jury verdict rendered against the Company in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. Other than the tax refunds that are in dispute, the Company does not have any other disputes regarding tax refunds received by the Company in connection with the LFIN acquisition. While judgment has been entered in the case, certain additional issues related to fees and other matters are to be determined by the Court in the future prior to the judgment becoming final and appealable. Company management is currently reviewing the judgment, its implications and the Companys intention to appeal, as well as, take other paths of action to mitigate the impact of the judgment. The Company is disappointed with the judgment but believes it has a number of valid grounds for appeal which it intends to pursue. During the first quarter of 2010, the Company recorded an additional reserve of $14.2 million, after tax, related to this matter. As of September 30, 2010, the Company has determined that the reserve currently established for this matter is still appropriate. Management will continue to review the developments in this dispute and make appropriate adjustments to the amount reserved, as needed.
