"Overall financial results for the third quarter were mixed as the continued positive momentum in Union's community bank segment was tempered by the poor results from our mortgage segment," said G. William Beale, chief executive officer of Union First Market Bankshares. "Given the current economic environment in Virginia, I am pleased with the solid financial performance from our community bank segment as Union continued to gain net new deposit households and turned in another quarter of steady loan growth.  In addition, the Bank's asset quality trends continued to improve across the footprint.  Our top-tier financial performance work continues to deliver positive results in the community bank segment as evidenced by the improvements to our key financial performance metrics, including year-over-year improvement in the community bank's operating return on assets and return on equity as well as its efficiency ratio.

"The performance from the mortgage segment was disappointing this quarter, as a significant reduction in mortgage loan originations demand due to rising interest rates as well as lower gain on sale margins and elevated expense levels resulted in a net loss for the third quarter.  The mortgage company is taking steps to recalibrate its cost structure to better align with the reduction in loan demand in order to return the mortgage banking segment to profitability as quickly as possible.

"We continue to be excited at the prospect of building the next great Virginia bank through the combination of Union and StellarOne Corporation, which will create the largest community banking institution headquartered in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The combination of two of Virginia's largest community banks provides Union with the growth opportunities, asset base and synergies to continue to deliver a best in class customer experience, offer superior financial services and solutions, provide a rewarding experience for our teammates and generate top-tier financial performance for our shareholders.  We have made significant progress in our merger integration planning efforts and recently received regulatory approval from the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond and from the Virginia State Corporation Commission to move forward with the acquisition. We also finalized the decision to consolidate 13 overlapping branches as a result of the merger.  The acquisition remains on track to close on or around January 1, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions, including shareholder approvals."

Select highlights:

  • The Company's community banking segment reported operating net income(1) of $9.7 million (or $0.39 per share), an increase of $885,000 (or $0.05 per share) from the same quarter in the prior year and a decrease of $436,000 (or $0.02 per share) from the prior quarter.
  • The Company's mortgage segment reported a net loss of $1.2 million (or $0.05 per share), a decrease of $2.1 million (or $0.08 per share) and $1.5 million (or $0.06 per share) from the same quarter in the prior year and the prior quarter, respectively.
  • Operating Return on Average Equity(1) ("ROE") decreased to 7.74% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared to operating ROE(1) of 8.70% and 9.58% for the same quarter of the prior year and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. Including current quarter acquisition-related costs, ROE was 7.31%. The operating ROE(1) of the community bank segment was 9.08% compared to the prior quarter of 9.52% and 8.06% at September 30, 2012.
  • Operating Return on Average Assets(1) ("ROA") decreased to 0.83% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared to operating ROA(1) of 0.96% and 1.03% for the same quarter of the prior year and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. Including current quarter acquisition-related costs, ROA was 0.78%. The operating ROA(1) of the community bank segment was 0.95% compared to the prior quarter of 1.01% and 0.87% at September 30, 2012.
  • Operating efficiency ratio(1) of 69.56% increased 283 basis points when compared to the prior quarter and increased 344 basis points when compared to the same quarter of the prior year. The operating efficiency ratio(1) of the community bank segment improved to 63.84%, compared to the prior quarter of 64.09% and 65.52% at September 30, 2012.
  • Loan demand continued to improve with an increase in average loans outstanding of $123.5 million, or 4.3%, since September 30, 2012. Average loan balances increased $21.9 million, or 2.9% on an annualized basis, from the prior quarter.
  • During the quarter, the Company added almost 1,000 net new core household accounts consistent with growth in the prior quarter and the 4.4% annualized growth rate in 2012. Deposit balances increased $25.1 million, or 0.8%, from September 30, 2012 while deposit balances declined $72.8 million since year end primarily due to net run-off in higher cost time deposits.
  • Credit quality metrics continued to improve as nonperforming assets ("NPAs") and the ratio of NPAs compared to total loans declined from the same quarter last year and prior quarter.

On a linked quarter basis, tax-equivalent net interest income was $39.2 million, an increase of $476,000, or 1.2%, from the second quarter of 2013.  The third quarter tax-equivalent net interest margin increased by 2 basis points to 4.20% from 4.18% in the previous quarter.  The increase in net interest margin was principally attributable to the reduction in the cost of funds (4 bps) outpacing the decline in earning asset yields (2 bps).  The increase in net interest income was driven by higher average loan balances, the decline in the cost of funds and the higher daycount in the current quarter. Loan yields continued to be negatively affected by the low rate environment as new and renewed loans were originated and repriced at lower rates.  Yields on investment securities were largely unchanged for the quarter, as prepayment speeds in taxable securities slowed and a shift in mix from taxable securities to higher yielding tax-exempt securities continued.  The cost of interest-bearing liabilities declined during the quarter largely driven by lower time deposit account balances.

For the three months ended September 30, 2013, tax-equivalent net interest income decreased $640,000, or 1.6%, when compared to the same period last year.  The tax-equivalent net interest margin decreased by 11 basis points to 4.20% from 4.31% in the prior year.  The decline in net interest margin was principally due to the continued decline in accretion on the acquired net earning assets (4 bps) and declines in earning asset yields exceeding the reduction in interest-bearing liabilities rates paid (7 bps).  Lower earning asset interest income was principally due to lower yields on loans as new and renewed loans were originated and repriced at lower rates, faster prepayments on mortgage-backed securities, and cash flows from securities investments reinvested at lower yields.  The decline in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities from the prior year's third quarter was driven by a shift in mix from time deposits to demand deposits, reductions in deposit rates and lower wholesale borrowing costs.

The Company continues to believe that net interest margin will decline modestly over the next several quarters as decreases in earning asset yields are projected to outpace declines in interest-bearing liabilities rates.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, tax-equivalent net interest income was $116.9 million, a decrease of $1.4 million, or 1.2%, when compared to the same period last year.  The tax-equivalent net interest margin decreased by 16 basis points to 4.20% from 4.36% in the prior year.  The decline in the net interest margin was principally due to the continued decline in accretion on the acquired net earning assets (7 bps) and a decline in the yield on interest-earning assets that outpaced the reduction in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities (9 bps).  Lower interest-earning asset income was principally due to lower yields on loans as new loans and renewed loans were originated and repriced at lower rates and declining investment securities yields driven by faster prepayments on mortgage-backed securities and cash flows from securities investments reinvested at lower yields.

The Company's fully taxable equivalent net interest margin includes the impact of acquisition accounting fair value adjustments.  The 2013 and remaining estimated discount/premium and net accretion impact are reflected in the following table (dollars in thousands):

ASSET QUALITY/LOAN LOSS PROVISION

Overview During the third quarter, the Company continued to reduce the levels of impaired loans, troubled debt restructurings, and nonperforming assets, which were at their lowest levels since the fourth quarter of 2009. Additionally, total past due loans remained stable from the prior quarter and declined from the same quarter last year. Net charge-offs, the related ratio of net charge-offs to total loans, and the loan loss provision also decreased from the same quarter of the previous year but increased from the prior quarter; the increase in charge-offs was related to the charge-off of loans specifically reserved for in prior periods, while the increase in provision was due to the impact of the increased charge-offs on the historical loss factor.  The allowance to nonperforming loans coverage ratio was at the highest level since the fourth quarter of 2008.  The magnitude of any change in the real estate market and its impact on the Company is still largely dependent upon continued recovery of residential housing and commercial real estate and the pace at which the local economies in the Company's operating markets improve.

Nonperforming Assets ("NPAs") At September 30, 2013, nonperforming assets totaled $55.7 million, a decline of $10.9 million, or 16.4%, from a year ago and a decrease of $6.5 million, or 10.5%, from the second quarter.  In addition, NPAs as a percentage of total outstanding loans declined 44 basis points from 2.29% a year earlier and decreased 22 basis points from 2.07% last quarter to 1.85% in the current quarter.

Nonperforming assets at September 30, 2013 included $19.9 million in nonaccrual loans (excluding purchased impaired loans), a net decrease of $12.3 million, or 38.2%, from September 30, 2012 and a net decrease of $7.1 million, or 26.3%, from the prior quarter.  The following table shows the activity in nonaccrual loans for the quarter ended (dollars in thousands):

(1) Includes closed branch property and land previously held for branch sites.

 

Included in land development is $9.4 million related to a residential community in the Northern Neck region of Virginia, which includes developed residential lots, a golf course, and undeveloped land.  Foreclosed properties were adjusted to their fair values at the time of each foreclosure and any losses were taken as loan charge-offs against the allowance for loan losses at that time.  OREO asset balances are evaluated at least quarterly by the Bank's Special Asset Loan Committee and any necessary write downs to fair values are recorded as impairment. 

Past Due Loans At September 30, 2013, total accruing past due loans were $30.5 million, or 1.02% of total loans, a decrease from $39.0 million, or 1.34% of total loans, a year ago and a slight increase from $29.7 million, or 0.99% of total loans, at June 30, 2013. 

Charge-offs For the quarter ended September 30, 2013, net charge-offs of loans were $2.3 million, or 0.30% on an annualized basis, compared to $3.5 million, or 0.48%, for the same quarter last year and $1.1 million, or 0.14%, for the second quarter of 2013.  The increase in charge-offs from the prior quarter related to loans that were previously considered impaired and specifically reserved for in prior periods.  Of the $2.3 million in net charge-offs in the current quarter, $1.8 million, or 78%, related to impaired loans specifically reserved for in the prior period.  Net charge-offs in the current quarter included commercial loans of $1.7 million

Provision The provision for loan losses for the current quarter was $1.8 million, a decrease of $600,000 from the same quarter a year ago and an increase of $800,000 from the previous quarter.  The increase in provision for loan losses in the current quarter compared to the prior quarter is driven by the impact of the increased charge-offs on the historical loss factor.  The provision to loans ratio for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was 0.24% on an annualized basis compared to 0.33% for the same quarter a year ago and to 0.13% last quarter.

Allowance for Loan Losses  The allowance for loan losses ("ALL") as a percentage of the total loan portfolio, adjusted for acquired loans (non-GAAP), was 1.30% at September 30, 2013, a decrease from 1.66% at September 30, 2012 and 1.33% from the prior quarter.  In acquisition accounting, there is no carryover of previously established allowance for loan losses.  The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of the total loan portfolio was 1.13% at September 30, 2013, 1.37% at September 30, 2012, and 1.14% at June 30, 2013.  The decrease in the allowance and related ratios was primarily attributable to the charge-off of impaired loans specifically reserved for in prior periods and improving credit quality metrics.

Impaired loans have declined from $177.9 million at September 30, 2012 and from $133.8 million at June 30, 2013 to $119.2 million at September 30, 2013.  The nonaccrual loan coverage ratio was at the highest level since the last quarter of 2008 at 169.9% at September 30, 2013, an increase from 124.1% from the same quarter last year and 127.1% at June 30, 2013.  The current level of the allowance for loan losses reflects specific reserves related to nonperforming loans, current risk ratings on loans, net charge-off activity, loan growth, delinquency trends, and other credit risk factors that the Company considers in assessing the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses. 

Troubled Debt Restructurings ("TDRs") The total recorded investment in TDRs as of September 30, 2013 was $47.9 million, a decline of $15.9 million, or 24.9%, from $63.8 million at September 30, 2012 and a decrease of $5.1 million, or 9.7%, from $53.0 million at June 30, 2013.  Of the $47.9 million of TDRs at September 30, 2013, $39.3 million, or 82.0%, were considered performing while the remaining $8.6 million were considered nonperforming.  The decline in the TDR balance from the prior quarter is attributable to $3.0 million in net payments, $1.6 million in transfers to OREO, and $777,000 in charge-offs, partially offset by additions of $306,000

On a linked quarter basis, noninterest income decreased $2.1 million, or 18.4%, to $9.2 million from $11.3 million in the second quarter.  Excluding mortgage segment operations, noninterest income increased $524,000, or 7.7%.  Service charges on deposit accounts increased $128,000 primarily related to higher overdraft and returned check fees.  Other operating income increased $454,000, or 43.5%, related to income that was previously deferred and earned in the current quarter, a credit card service performance rebate, and receipt of insurance policy proceeds.  Gains on sales of mortgage loans, net of commissions, decreased $2.6 million, or 55.8%, as rising mortgage interest rates led to declines in mortgage loan originations, which decreased by $79.3 million, or 26.6%, in the current quarter to $218.9 million from $298.2 million in the second quarter.  Of the loan originations in the current quarter, 28.6% were refinances, which was down from 38.4% in the second quarter.  Included in the current quarter gain on sale of mortgage loans was an increase of $246,000 in the indemnification reserve related to mortgage loans previously sold.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2013, noninterest income decreased $1.3 million, or 12.2%, to $9.2 million from $10.5 million in the prior year's third quarter.  Excluding mortgage segment operations, noninterest income increased $1.5 million, or 24.9%, from the same period a year ago.  Service charges on deposit accounts increased $252,000 primarily related to higher overdraft and returned check fees as well as service charges on savings accounts.  Other service charges, commissions and fees increased $417,000 primarily due to higher net interchange fee income and fees on letters of credit.  Losses on bank premises declined $302,000 due to the write down of a former branch location in the prior year.  Other operating income increased $431,000, or 40.4%, related to income that was previously deferred and earned in the current quarter, a credit card service performance rebate, and receipt of insurance policy proceeds.  Gains on sales of mortgage loans, net of commissions, decreased $2.7 million, or 56.7%, primarily due to lower loan origination volume and gain on sale margin compression due to rising mortgage interest rates. Mortgage loan originations decreased by $104.2 million, or 32.3%, in the current quarter to $218.9 million from $323.1 million in the third quarter of 2012.  Included in the current quarter gain on sale of mortgage loans was an increase of $246,000 in the indemnification reserve related to mortgage loans previously sold.

For the nine months ending September 30, 2013, noninterest income increased $1.1 million, or 3.8%, to $30.3 million, from $29.2 million a year ago.  Excluding mortgage segment operations, noninterest income increased $2.0 million, or 11.2%, from the same period a year ago.  Service charges on deposit accounts increased $450,000 primarily related to higher overdraft and returned check fees as well as service charges on savings accounts.  Other account service charges and fees increased $1.1 million due to higher net interchange fee income, revenue on retail investment products, and fees on letters of credit. Other operating income increased $667,000 primarily related to increased income on bank owned life insurance and insurance related revenues.  Conversely, gains on bank premises decreased $371,000 as the Company recorded a loss in the current year on the closure of bank premises coupled with gains in the prior year related to sale of bank premises.  Gains on sales of mortgage loans, net of commissions, decreased $771,000 driven by lower gain on sale margins in 2013, partly due to reductions resulting from valuation reserves of $363,000 related to aged mortgage loans held-for-sale as well as an increase of $277,000 in the indemnification reserve related to mortgage loans previously sold.

 (1) OREO related costs include foreclosure related expenses, gains/losses on the sale of OREO, valuation reserves, and asset resolution related legal expenses.

 

On a linked quarter basis, noninterest expense decreased $151,000, or 0.4%, to $34.1 million from $34.3 million when compared to the second quarter.  Excluding mortgage segment operations and acquisition-related costs, noninterest expense increased $557,000, or 1.9%, compared to the second quarter.  OREO and credit-related costs increased $617,000 from the prior quarter due to valuation adjustments of $491,000, higher losses on the sales of OREO of $66,000, and increased credit-related legal fees of $108,000 in the current quarter.  Salary-related expenses declined $496,000 primarily related to reduced levels of incentive compensation and seasonal payroll taxes in the current quarter and severance expense recorded in the prior quarter related to the relocation of Union Mortgage Group, Inc.'s headquarters to Richmond.  

For the quarter ended September 30, 2013, noninterest expense increased $864,000, or 2.6%, to $34.1 million from $33.3 million for the third quarter of 2012.  Excluding mortgage segment operations and acquisition-related costs, noninterest expense declined $278,000, or 0.9%, compared to the third quarter of 2012.  Salaries and benefits expenses increased $300,000 primarily related to the costs associated with strategic investments in mortgage segment personnel in 2012 and 2013.  OREO and credit-related costs increased $566,000, as the Company recorded valuation adjustments of $491,000 and incurred higher losses on the sales of OREO of $50,000 in the current quarter compared to the same quarter in 2012.  These increases were partially offset by declines in occupancy expenses of $442,000 and furniture and equipment expenses of $144,000, primarily due to branch closures in 2012.

 (1) OREO related costs include foreclosure related expenses, gains/losses on the sale of OREO, valuation reserves, and asset resolution related legal expenses.

 

For the nine months ending September 30, 2013, noninterest expense increased $2.8 million, or 2.8%, to $101.9 million, from $99.1 million a year ago. Excluding mortgage segment operations and acquisition-related costs of $1.4 million incurred in 2013, noninterest expense declined $1.9 million, or 2.2%, compared to the same period in 2012.  Salaries and benefits expense increased $2.3 million due to costs associated with strategic investments in mortgage segment personnel in 2012 and 2013, severance expense recorded in the current year related to the relocation of Union Mortgage Group, Inc.'s headquarters to Richmond, group insurance cost increases, and management incentive payments related to higher earnings.  Occupancy expenses decreased $562,000 and furniture and equipment expenses declined $190,000, primarily due to branch closures in 2012.

BALANCE SHEET

At September 30, 2013, total assets were $4.0 billion, a decrease of $9.4 million from June 30, 2013, and an increase of $18.9 million from September 30, 2012.  Total cash and cash equivalents were $75.1 million at September 30, 2013, an increase of $12.7 million from the same period last year, and an increase of $3.5 million from June 30, 2013.  Investment in securities declined $32.7 million, or 5.2%, from $622.1 million at September 30, 2012 to $589.4 million at September 30, 2013, and increased $7.1 million from June 30, 2013.  Mortgage loans held for sale were $58.2 million, a decrease of $83.8 million from September 30, 2012, and a decline of $51.2 million from June 30, 2013.

At September 30, 2013, loans (net of unearned income) were $3.0 billion, an increase of $93.7 million, or 3.2%, from September 30, 2012, and an increase of $1.4 million from June 30, 2013.  Average loans outstanding increased $123.5 million, or 4.3%, since September 30, 2012 and $21.9 million, or 2.9% on an annualized basis, from the prior quarter.

As of September 30, 2013, total deposits were $3.2 billion, an increase of $25.1 million, or 0.8%, when compared to September 30, 2012, and a decrease of $41.0 million, or 1.3%, from June 30, 2013.  Year over year deposit growth was driven by increases in low cost deposit levels, which grew $92.9 million, while the drop in linked quarter deposits was driven by lower time deposit balances of $54.1 million, partially offset by an increase in low cost deposits of $28.9 million.

Net short term borrowings declined as a result of lower mortgage loans held for sale funding requirements during the quarter.  During the third quarter of 2012, the Company modified its fixed rate convertible Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta ("FHLB") advances to floating rate advances, which resulted in reducing the Company's FHLB borrowing costs.  In connection with this modification, the Company incurred a prepayment penalty of $19.6 million which is being amortized, as a component of interest expense on borrowing, over the life of the advances.  The prepayment amount is reported as a component of long-term borrowings in the Company's consolidated balance sheet. 

The Company's capital ratios continued to be considered "well capitalized" for regulatory purposes.  The Company's ratio of total capital to risk-weighted assets was 14.40% and 15.00% on September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.  The Company's ratio of Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets was 13.13% and 13.44% at September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.  The Company's common equity to asset ratios at September 30, 2013 and 2012 were 10.72% and 11.00%, respectively, while its tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio was 9.09% and 9.27% at September 30, 2013 and 2012.  During the first quarter, the Company entered into an agreement to purchase 500,000 shares of its common stock from Markel Corporation, the Company's largest shareholder, for an aggregate purchase price of $9,500,000, or $19.00 per share.  The repurchase was funded with cash on hand and the shares were retired.  During the third quarter, the Company did not repurchase any shares.  The Company is authorized to repurchase an additional 250,000 shares under its current repurchase program authorization, which expires December 31, 2013.  Also, the Company paid a dividend of $0.14 per share during the current quarter, an increase of $0.01 from the prior quarter and an increase of $0.04 per share from the same quarter a year ago.

MORTGAGE SEGMENT INFORMATION

On a linked quarter basis, the mortgage segment's net loss of $1.2 million for the third quarter represents a decrease of $1.5 million from net income of $294,000 in the second quarter.  Beginning in May 2013, rising mortgage interest rates have negatively affected mortgage loan origination volumes and gain on sale margins resulting in lower net gains on sales revenue.  During the quarter, the mortgage segment experienced a decline in mortgage originations of $79.3 million, or 26.6%, from $298.2 million in the second quarter to $218.9 million.  Refinanced volume decreased $51.9 million, or 45.3%, from $114.5 million, which represented 38.4% of total originations, in the prior quarter to $62.6 million, which represented 28.6% of total originations.  As a result, gains on sales of mortgage loans sold, net of commission expenses, decreased $2.6 million, or 55.8%, to $2.1 million from $4.7 million in the second quarter.  Included in the current quarter gain on sale of mortgage loans was a reduction resulting from a $246,000 increase in the indemnification reserve related to mortgage loans previously sold.  Salaries and benefits expenses declined $522,000, primarily related to severance expenses incurred in the second quarter and lower current quarter salaries and overtime expenses due to management actions taken as a result of lower loan origination levels.

For the three months ended September 30, 2013, the net loss of $1.2 million for the mortgage segment declined by $2.1 million from net income of $859,000 in the same period last year.  Mortgage loan originations decreased by $104.2 million, or 32.3%, to $218.9 million from $323.1 million in the prior year driven by higher mortgage interest rates and lower refinanced loan demand.  Refinanced volume decreased $123.5 million, or 66.4%, from $186.1 million, which represented 57.6% of total originations, in the third quarter of 2012 to $62.6 million, which represented 28.6% of total originations.  During the current quarter, the Company recorded gains on the sale of mortgage loans, net of commission expenses, of $2.1 million, which were $2.7 million, or 56.7%, lower than the same period last year primarily due to lower loan origination volumes and gain on sale margin compression driven by the rise in mortgage loan interest rates in the current quarter.  Included in the current quarter gain on sale of mortgage loans was a reduction resulting from a $246,000 increase in the indemnification reserve related to mortgage loans previously sold.  Expenses increased $720,000, or 19.6%, over the same quarter last year primarily related to increases in contract labor of $245,000, loan-related expenses of $174,000, and legal and other professional fees of $110,000.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the mortgage segment incurred a net loss of $761,000, a decline of $2.3 million from net income of $1.6 million during the same period last year.  Mortgage loan originations increased by $20.8 million, or 2.7%, to $785.2 million from $764.4 million during the same period last year due to the full year impact of the additional mortgage loan officers added in the first half of 2012.    Gains on sales of mortgage loans, net of commission expenses, decreased $771,000, or 6.8%, driven by lower gain on sale margins in 2013, partly due to reductions resulting from valuation reserves of $363,000 related to aged mortgage loans held-for-sale as well as an increase of $277,000 in the indemnification reserve related to mortgage loans previously sold.  Expenses increased by $3.5 million, or 35.6%, over the same period last year primarily due to increases in salary and benefit expenses of $2.3 million related to the costs associated with the addition of mortgage loan originators and support personnel in 2012, investments made in the current year to enhance the mortgage segment's operating capabilities, and severance payments made in the second quarter related to the relocation of Union Mortgage Group, Inc.'s headquarters to Richmond. In addition, expenses increased due to higher mortgage branch rent expenses of $226,000, loan-related expenses of $356,000, and legal and other professional fees of $206,000.

While management is taking steps to recalibrate the mortgage segment's cost structure to align with declining mortgage origination levels, in the near term, the return to profitability in the mortgage segment is dependent on increased mortgage production volumes and/or higher gain on sale margins from third quarter levels.

(1)  The core net interest margin, fully taxable equivalent ("FTE") excludes the impact of acquisition accounting accretion and amortization adjustments in net interest income.

(2) The allowance for loan losses, adjusted for acquired loans (non-GAAP) ratio includes the allowance for loan losses to the total loan portfolio less acquired loans without additional credit deterioration above the original credit mark.  Loans with credit deterioration subsequent to being acquired have been provided for in accordance with the Company's ALL methodology.  GAAP requires the acquired allowance for loan losses not be carried over in an acquisition or merger.  The Company believes the presentation of the allowance for loan losses, adjusted for acquired loans ratio is useful to investors because the acquired loans were purchased at a market discount with no allowance for loan losses carried over to the Company.  Therefore, acquired loans without additional credit deterioration above the original credit mark are adjusted out of the loan balance denominator.

(3) The Company has provided supplemental performance measures which the Company believes may be useful to investors as they exclude non-operating adjustments resulting from acquisition and allow investors to see the combined economic results of the organization. These measures are a supplement to GAAP used to prepare the Company's financial statements and should not be viewed as a substitute for GAAP measures. In addition, the Company's non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to non-GAAP measures of other companies.

(4) Tangible common equity is used in the calculation of certain capital and per share ratios.  The Company believes tangible common equity and the related ratios are meaningful measures of capital adequacy because they provide a meaningful base for period-to-period and company-to-company comparisons, which the Company believes will assist investors in assessing the capital of the Company and its ability to absorb potential losses.
