Southwest Bancorp Inc. Completes Repurchase Of Capital Purchase Program Securities

Stocks in this article: OKSB

STILLWATER, Okla., Aug. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Southwest Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:OKSB) (Nasdaq:OKSBP), ("Southwest"), announced the completion of the repurchase of all $70.0 million of its preferred securities (the "Series B Preferred") sold to the Department of the Treasury in December 2008. The Series B Preferred was issued under the Treasury's Capital Purchase Program ("CPP").

Rick Green, President and CEO, stated, "Completing this repurchase has been a top priority for us. It follows several other achievements, including significant improvements in profitability and credit quality, the termination of formal and informal agreements with federal regulators, and the resumption of regular distributions on Southwest's trust preferred securities."

All funds for the repurchase were internally generated. Southwest and each of its banking subsidiaries remain well capitalized after the repurchase. Southwest will take a one-time, non-cash equity charge of approximately $1.2 million in the third quarter of 2012 to reflect accelerated accretion of the remaining discount on the Series B Preferred. Prior to the repurchase, dividends on the repurchased Series B Preferred, which reduced net income available to common shareholders, were approximately $1.1 million per quarter.
