The loss in 2013 was primarily due to an increase in OREO expense along with an increase in the provision for loan losses due to an increase in loan write-downs. In addition, the gain on the sale of investments for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $24,000 compared to $286,000 for the previous year comparable quarter. Net loss per common share was $0.81 (diluted) for the three months ended June 30, 2013, versus net income of $0.01 per common share (diluted) for the same period in 2012. The net loss to common shareholders for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $1.9 million, or $1.07 net loss per share (diluted), compared to a net loss to common shareholders of $178,000 or $0.10 per share (diluted), for the same period in 2012.

Net loans receivable decreased 2.7% to $120.1 million at June 30, 2013 as a result of lower demand and more stringent underwriting standards. Deposits increased $132,000 to $277.6 million at June 30, 2013. Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advances and other borrowings decreased $831,000 to $42.9 million at June 30, 2013 due primarily to the maturation of borrowings. Shareholders' equity decreased $5.7 million, or 46.6%, to $6.5 million at June 30, 2013 from $12.2 million at December 31, 2012 due primarily to a $4.0 million increase in unrealized losses on securities available for sale along with net loss before accrued preferred stock dividends of $1.7 million.
