Change in Net Interest Income and Rate/Volume Analysis

As shown in the following table, the increase in net interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis for the second quarter of 2013 over the same period of 2012 was primarily due to an increase in the level of interest earning assets. Lower yields on interest earning assets were partially offset by a reduction in the Company's cost of funds.
