For the quarter, net interest income was $17.7 million, a decrease of $6.5 million from $24.18 million for the fourth quarter of 2007. The company’s net interest margin of 3.55% for the fourth quarter 2008 reflected a decline of 120 basis points from the same quarter of 2007.

For the year ended December 31, 2008, the company’s net interest income declined by $22.7 million from the same period in 2007. This decline is due primarily to an $18.9 million unfavourable rate variance in connection with an 88 basis point decrease in the net interest margin, said Guaranty Bancorp.
