Thank you, Charlotte. I would like to welcome and thank everyone joining us for our third quarter earnings announcement. I'm very excited to announce such positive results for the third quarter of 2013. I am delighted to announce that Prosperity Bancshares will increase its quarterly dividend to $0.24 or $0.96 annually, which represents an increase of 11.6% from the $0.86 per share currently being paid. At Prosperity, we strive to continue to share our success with our shareholders and have the shareholders' interest in mind.
Prosperity listed on the NASDAQ stock market in late 1998 and began to pay dividends in 1999 when we paid the first dividend of $0.10 per share annually. That was before any stock splits.
As mentioned before, we are excited about our upcoming merger with First Victoria National Bank. We expect to close the transaction in November of this year and conduct the operational -- I'm sorry, conduct the operational integration in December. As of September 30, 2013, First Victoria National Bank, on a consolidated basis, reported total assets of $2,473,000,000, total loans of $1,648,000,000, and total deposits of $2,195,000,000.
We are also very excited about our recently announced merger with F&M Bankcorporation. We expect to close this merger in the late first quarter of 2014 and conduct the operational integration in the second quarter of 2014. As of September 30, 2013, F&M, on a consolidated basis, had total assets of $2,470,000,000, total loans of $1,882,000,000, and total deposits of $2,257,000,000.
With regard to earnings, we posted earnings of $55,278,000 for the 3 months ending September 30, 2013, and that's compared to $46,176,000 for the same period in 2012, which represents an increase of $9,102,000 or 19.7%.
Our diluted earnings per share for the quarter ending September 30, 2013 came in at $0.91, compared to $0.82 for the same period last year, an increase of 11%.
