Total Expenses Increase in Q4 Due to Non-Cash Benefit Charges and Liabilities Restructuring

For the full year of 2012, Total Expenses (including restructuring costs of $5.9 million) were $231.9 million, down 1% from Total Expenses (including restructuring costs of $8.1 million) of $233.9 million for the full year of 2011.

“Total Expenses in the quarter were impacted by unusual items totaling $7.6 million, including non-cash benefit charges of $2.0 million, seasonal marketing costs of $1.1 million, liability restructuring costs of $2.0 million, severance costs of $1.6 million and variable compensation costs of $900 thousand,” said David J. Kaye, Chief Financial Officer. “It is important to note that the costs associated with the restructuring of expenses and liabilities will benefit the Company in 2013.”

Provision for Loan Losses in the fourth quarter was a credit of ($5.0) million, compared to a provision credit of ($4.0) million in the third quarter of 2012. The ($5.0) million provision credit was primarily driven by the agreement to sell the Pacific Northwest offices, which the Company announced in December.
