Western Alliance Reports Fourth Quarter 2011 Net Income Of $7.1 Million, Or $0.07 Per Share

Ken Vecchione, President and Chief Operating Officer, added, “As the economy continues to recover, Western Alliance Bancorporation stands ready to support the businesses and communities we serve by providing continued access to credit. Our capital strength and commitment to serve our customers leads us to be optimistic regarding our loan and deposit pipelines in 2012.” Mr. Vecchione further added, “Our disciplined approach to pricing both loans and deposits, and the management of our investment portfolio produced a fourth quarter net interest margin of 4.51 percent and full year net interest margin of 4.37 percent. Higher net interest income and contained expenses supported our record $31.5 million pre-tax, pre-credit income. 1 Our core earnings momentum and favorable trends in asset quality, position us for increased operating net income in future quarters.”

Western Alliance Bancorporation reported net income of $7.1 million, or $0.7 per share in the fourth quarter 2011. Income from continuing operations before income tax was $9.6 million, including pre-tax net unrealized losses from assets/liabilities measured at fair value of $0.6 million. The income included a $0.06 per common share charge from repossessed assets valuations/sales.

Full year net income was $31.5 million compared to a $7.2 million loss in 2010. Full year earnings per share were $0.19 compared to a $0.23 per share loss for 2010.

Total loans increased $254 million to $4.78 billion at December 31, 2011 from $4.53 billion on September 30, 2011. This increase was driven by growth in commercial and industrial loans and commercial real estate loans. Loans increased $540 million, or 12.7 percent from December 31, 2010.

Total deposits increased $26 million to $5.66 billion at December 31, 2011 from $5.63 billion at September 30, 2011, with growth primarily in non-interest bearing demand, interest bearing demand and savings and money market accounts, partially offset by declines in certificates of deposit. Deposits increased $320 million, or 6.0 percent from December 31, 2010.
