Item 2.06   Material Impairments

            (a) The Registrant and its subsidiary, MetaBank (the "Bank"), on
            November 30, 2006 determined that a material amount of its assets
            were impaired under generally accepted accounting principles. The
            assets affected include commercial operating loans totaling
            approximately $3.9 million. The loans are secured by construction
            equipment, accounts receivable, and other assets of a road paving
            company (the "Company"). Upon review of the assets of the Company,
            the Bank has determined that it is probable that it will be unable
            to collect all principal and interest amounts due according to the
            contractual terms of the loan agreements.

            (b) The Registrant has estimated its range of possible loss on the
            impaired assets at between $1.05 million and $1.96 million. The Bank
            had previously established a specific allowance against these assets
            of $756,000, and plans to increase this allowance by an additional

            (c) The Registrant has estimated that future cash expenditures
            associated with the resolution of all matters surrounding these
            impaired assets, including legal and other costs will be between
            $50,000 and $175,000.


         Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
