The Company's provision for loan losses was $2.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2007 as compared to $817,000 for the corresponding quarter of 2006.

Professional fees increased $496,000 or 209.3% to $733,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2007 compared to the corresponding period of 2006 due to increased legal, audit, accounting, and compliance fees attributed to the growth of the company and costs associated with being a public company.
