First Defiance Financial Corp. in Ohio has revised its fourth-quarter earnings.

The $2 billion-asset company said late Monday that it increased its loan-loss provision by $1.5 million, to $8.5 million, largely as a result of one loan that was still performing yet considered impaired.

The higher provision reduced fourth-quarter earnings, previously announced as $1.6 million, to $500,000. In the fourth quarter of 2008 First Defiance earned $880,000.
