BEND, Ore., Aug. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cascade Bancorp (NASDAQ: CACB) ("Company") the holding company for Bank of the Cascades ("Bank"), announced 2013 second quarter results showing continued growth. Net income and shareholder equity was significantly and positively affected by the non-recurring release of our deferred tax asset ("DTA") valuation allowance. The release of the DTA allowance is recorded as a non-recurring $51.7 million benefit to income taxes in the Company's income statement. The recognition of DTA indicates that it is more likely than not that future taxable income will be sufficient to realize the benefit of the Company's tax profile over time. Also during the second quarter of 2013 the Company recorded non-recurring charges which we anticipate will position the Company for improved profitability going forward. The largest of these charges was a $3.8 million prepayment penalty to extinguish high rate FHLB advances. This payoff is expected to reduce Company borrowing costs in the future by approximately $500 thousand per quarter.
With the release of DTA at June 30, 2013, stockholders' equity increased to $187.9 million or $3.95 per share as compared to $140.8 million or $2.97 per share at December 31, 2012 when net DTA was nil.
The full details of the Company's second quarter 2013 results were filed with the SEC in the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q on August 9, 2013.
