Western Alliance Bancorporation And Western Liberty Bancorp Announce Filing Of Proxy Statement/Prospectus Supplement

The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from the anticipated results or other expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements:

  • the failure of the parties to satisfy the closing conditions in the merger agreement in a timely manner or at all;
  • the failure of the stockholders of Western Liberty to adopt the merger agreement;
  • the failure to settle the pending litigation involving the merger;
  • disruptions to the parties’ businesses as a result of the announcement and pendency of the merger;
  • costs or difficulties related to the integration of the businesses following the merger;
  • dependency on real estate and events that negatively impact real estate;
  • high concentration of commercial real estate, construction and development, commercial and industrial loans;
  • actual credit losses may exceed expected losses in the loan portfolio;
  • possible need for a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets;
  • the effects of interest rates and interest rate policy;
  • exposure of financial instruments to certain market risks may cause volatility in earnings;
  • dependence on low-cost deposits;
  • ability to borrow from Federal Home Loan Bank, or FHLB, or Federal Reserve Bank, or FRB;
  • events that further impair goodwill;
  • increase in the cost of funding as the result of changes to our credit rating;
  • expansion strategies may not be successful;
  • the ability of the parties to control costs;
  • risk associated with changes in internal controls and processes;
  • the ability of the parties to compete in a highly competitive market;
  • the effects of terrorist attacks or threats of war;
  • risk of audit of U.S. federal tax deductions;
  • perpetration of internal fraud;
  • risk of operating in a highly regulated industry and our ability to remain in compliance;
  • possible need to revalue our deferred tax assets if stock transactions result in limitations on deductibility of net operating losses or loan losses;
  • exposure to environmental liabilities related to the properties to which we acquire title;
  • recent and proposed legislative and regulatory changes including the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 and the rules and regulations that might be promulgated thereunder and the Basel III rulemaking proceedings of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and other federal regulators;
  • cyber security risks; and
  • risks related to ownership and price of our common stock.

Additional factors that could cause Western Alliance’s and Western Liberty’s results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements can be found in Western Alliance’s and Western Liberty’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC, including Western Alliance’s and Western Liberty’s respective Annual Reports on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, as, in the case of Western Liberty, amended, and their respective Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ending March 30, 2012 and June 30, 2012.
