BankUnited, Inc. Reports 2012 Results, Earnings Exceed $211 Million

In addition, as discussed above, the quarter ended December 31, 2012 included approximately $10.1 million of gains on the sale of investment securities, $14.2 million in losses on the extinguishment of FHLB advances and a loss of $8.7 million on the termination of a cash flow hedge.

Non-interest expense

Non-interest expense totaled $78.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 as compared to $75.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, non-interest expense totaled $323.1 million as compared to $455.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Non-interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2011 included a one-time compensation expense of $110.4 million recorded in conjunction with the Company’s IPO.

Employee compensation and benefits (excluding the one-time charge of $110.4 million discussed above) and occupancy and equipment expense increased for 2012 as compared to 2011, reflecting the Company’s continued growth and the opening and refurbishment of branches.

For the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012, the aggregate of foreclosure expense, OREO expense, gain (loss) on sale of OREO and impairment of OREO totaled $4.7 million and $26.0 million, respectively, as compared to $7.5 million and $80.1 million, respectively, for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011. The sharply lower level of expense for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012 reflected lower levels of OREO and foreclosure activity as well as improving real estate market trends as compared to the prior year.
