During the year ended December 31, 2013, provision for loan losses was $122,000 as compared to $270,000 during the ended December 31, 2012.  The provision in the current year was primarily due to reserves set up for general loan losses.

Net occupancy expense increased by $34,000 or 17.4% to $229,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to $195,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012, primarily due to an increase in depreciation expense.  Loss on other real estate owned increased by $103,000, or 572.2% for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to $18,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012, primarily due to a write down of the principal of $92,000, on one of the properties which was subsequently sold.  As of December 31, 2013, the Bank sold one property and added one property to its real estate owned account.  Legal fees increased by $53,000, or 55.2% to $149,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to $96,000 for the period ended December 31, 2012, primarily due to foreclosure issues and the Bank seeking Counsel's advice on policy and procedure matters.  Advertising expense increased by $22,000, or 46.8% to $69,000, for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to $47,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012. This increase was primarily due to Cable Vision advertising and a conscious effort by the Bank to advertise in local events.  Miscellaneous expenses increased by $134,000 to $1.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to $877,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012, primarily due to an increase of $53,000 in Board of Directors fees (addition of a new director), an increase of $20,000 in ATM charges (the Bank converted to a new service provider), $12,000 increase in seminars expense and $8,000 increase in other operating expenses.
