Critical Accounting Policies

The Company’s significant accounting policies are described in Note 1 to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in the 2008 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and to disclose contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Management has identified accounting for the allowance for credit losses, valuation and analysis for impairment of goodwill/other intangible assets, and the analysis of other-than-temporary impairment for its investment securities, income taxes and pension and other post retirement benefits as the Company’s most critical accounting policies and estimates in that they are important to the portrayal of the Company’s financial condition and results, and they require management’s most subjective and complex judgment as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. These accounting policies, including the nature of the estimates and types of assumptions used, are described throughout this Item 2, Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and Part II, Item 7, the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in the 2008 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
