Net interest and fee margin increased in the third quarter of 2012, to 13.51% from 13.22% in the second quarter of 2012, and has increased 74 basis points from the third quarter a year ago.
The company’s cost of funds improved 39 basis points from the second quarter of 2012 and 168 basis points from the third quarter of 2011. The improvement resulted from the Company’s continuing shift in funding mix to lower-cost insured deposits issued by the Company’s subsidiary, Marlin Business Bank.
