Western Alliance Reports Second Quarter 2012 Net Income Of $14.0 Million, Or $0.15 Per Share

Stocks in this article: WAL

Ken Vecchione, President and Chief Operating Officer, added, “Our record revenue, coupled with improved efficiency, drove our pre-tax, pre-credit income to $32.1 million during the second quarter, a new high. 1 This quarter, REO valuations/losses declined to less than $1 million as some properties in our REO portfolio experienced increases in appraised values. Offsetting the good news this quarter, charge-offs and the provision for loan losses remained flat to the prior quarter. Nevada asset quality has not exhibited the same rate of improvement as California or Arizona.”

Western Alliance Bancorporation reported net income of $14.0 million, or $0.15 per share, in the second quarter 2012 including a $0.6 million after-tax charge from repossessed assets valuations/sales and a $1.1 million after tax gain from securities sales.

Total loans increased $239 million, or 4.9 percent, to $5.16 billion at June 30, 2012 from $4.93 billion on March 31, 2012. This increase was primarily driven by growth in commercial and industrial loans, commercial leases and commercial real estate loans. Loans increased $753 million from June 30, 2011.

Total deposits increased $102 million, or 1.7 percent, to $6.0 billion at June 30, 2012 from $5.90 billion at March 31, 2012, with growth primarily in money market accounts, non-interest bearing demand and interest bearing demand partially offset by declines in certificates of deposit. Deposits increased $413 million from June 30, 2011.
