Net interest income rose to $69.60 million from $63.77 million, primarily on a decrease in interest expense and higher interest income. Net interest margin grew to 5.49% from 5.00%.

Non-interest income fell to $2.06 million from $8.25 million, due to lower FDIC loss sharing income offset in part by higher gains on sales of leases and securities.

Allowance for credit losses at the end of December 31, 2012 were $72.12 million, down from $93.78 million in the previous year period.

Base efficiency ratio for the fourth quarter rose marginally to 60.7% from 60.4%, while adjusted efficiency ratio fell to 55.7% from 59.0%.
