(1) Variable effective rate at December 31, 2012, based on one month LIBOR + 0.67 or 0.88%.
(2) Variable effective rate at December 31, 2012, based on one month LIBOR + 2.35 or 2.56%.

Amounts above are net of unamortized discounts and adjustments related to hedging with derivative financial instruments. The derivative instruments, principally interest rate swaps, are used to hedge the fair values of certain fixed-rate debt by converting the debt to a variable rate. See Note 20 for more information regarding such financial instruments.


In 2010, approximately $92.1 million of municipal securities, $86.0 million in Huntington Preferred Capital, Inc. (Real Estate

Investment Trust) Class E Preferred Stock and cash of $6.1 million were transferred to Tower Hill Securities, Inc., an unconsolidated entity, in exchange for $184.1 million of Common and Preferred Stock of Tower Hill Securities, Inc. The municipal securities and the REIT Shares will be used to satisfy $65.0 million of mandatorily redeemable securities issued by Tower Hill Securities, Inc. and are not available to satisfy the general debts and obligations of Huntington or any consolidated affiliates. The transfer did not meet the sale requirement of ASC 860 and therefore has been reflected as a secured financing on the Consolidated Financial Statements of



Other long-term debt maturities for the next five years and thereafter are as follows:


      Other long-term
  (dollar amounts in thousands) debt maturities
  2013   $ 141  
  2014     ---  
  2015     ---  
  2016     ---  
  2017     ---  
  and thereafter     152,086  

These maturities are based upon the par values of the long-term debt.


The terms of the other long-term debt obligations contain various restrictive covenants including limitations on the acquisition of additional debt in excess of specified levels, dividend payments, and the disposition of subsidiaries. As of December 31, 2012, Huntington was in compliance with all such covenants.
