Management restated its financial results for the three month period ended December 31, 2008 due to differences associated with certain assumptions used in the evaluation of a structured pooled trust preferred security for other-than-temporary impairment.  However, the Corporation's net income for the year ended December 31, 2008 was not misstated since the revision only involved the timing of the recognition of an other-than-temporary impairment charge of $1,717,000 between the third and fourth quarters of 2008.
