The report said there were 229 CAMEL 4/5 credit unions as of the end of the first quarter, up from 211 in December.

The NCUSIF quarterly report, presented to the board by NCUA Chief Financial Officer Mary Ann Woodson, also projected a 2008 net income of $159.3 million. For the past 10 years, that figure has ranged from a low in 2003 of $28.9 million to a high in 2000 of $204.2 million.
