At June 30, 2014, the commercial real estate and commercial loan and lease portfolios totaled $3.4 billion, or 73.7 percent of total loans and leases, as compared to $3.3 billion, or 73.6 percent at March 31, 2014, and $3.2 billion, or 72.6 percent at December 31, 2013. Strong loan growth continued in our total commercial real estate and commercial loan and lease portfolios, which increased $105.6 million during the second quarter of 2014, or 12.9 percent on an annualized basis.

Cash, cash equivalents, and investment securities increased $8.3 million quarter over quarter to $608.8 million, or 10.9 percent of total assets at June 30, 2014, as compared to $600.5 million, or 11.1 percent of total assets at March 31, 2014, and $585.4 million, or 11.0 percent of total assets at December 31, 2013.

Total deposits of $3.9 billion at June 30, 2014 increased $13.5 million from March 31, 2014, and increased $26.1 million from December 31, 2013.

NET INTEREST INCOME

Net interest income decreased $1.3 million to $46.4 million during the second quarter of 2014 from the linked quarter, largely as a result of a $2.8 million decrease in accretion on the acquired loan and lease portfolio, offset by a $1.5 million increase in interest income from loans and leases due to volume. Net interest margin decreased 21 basis points to 3.61 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2014, primarily due to the decrease in accretion on the acquired loan and lease portfolio.

PROVISION FOR LOAN LOSSES

The Company recorded a provision for loan and lease losses of $2.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to $2.4 million during the first quarter of 2014. The decrease of $0.2 million quarter over quarter is due to improved credit quality in the originated and acquired loan and lease portfolios.

Net charge-offs remained constant at $0.7 million for the second and first quarter of 2014. The ratio of net charge-offs to average loans on an annualized basis also remained constant at 0.06 percent for the second and first quarter of 2014.

The allowance for loan losses represented 1.12 percent of total loans and leases at June 30, 2014, compared to 1.13 percent at March 31, 2014. The allowance for loan losses related to originated loans and leases as a percentage of originated loans and leases was 1.31 percent at June 30, 2014, compared to 1.33 percent at March 31, 2014.

NON-INTEREST INCOME

Non-interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 decreased $1.8 million to $3.3 million from the linked quarter. The decrease was largely driven by a decrease in the net gain on sale/disposals of premises and equipment of $1.5 million and a $0.5 million decrease in the gain on sales of loans and leases held-for sale.

NON-INTEREST EXPENSE

Non-interest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 decreased $2.4 million to $31.2 million from the linked quarter. This decrease was largely a result of a $1.3 million decrease in occupancy expense, a $0.7 million decrease in compensation and employee benefits expense and a $0.2 million decrease in professional services expense.

RETURNS ON AVERAGE ASSETS AND AVERAGE EQUITY

The return on average assets decreased during the second quarter of 2014 to 0.73 percent at June 30, 2014 from 0.78 percent for the first quarter of 2014. The return on average tangible assets decreased to 0.75 percent for the second quarter of 2014 from 0.80 percent for the first quarter of 2014.

The return on average stockholders' equity decreased during the second quarter of 2014 to 6.37 percent from 6.70 percent for the first quarter of 2014. The return on average tangible stockholders’ equity decreased to 8.44 percent for the second quarter of 2014 from 8.92 percent for the first quarter of 2014.

The ratio of nonperforming loans and leases to total loans and leases decreased 4 basis points to 0.37 percent at June 30, 2014 from the linked quarter.
