Old National Bancorp Announces Early Termination of its FDIC Loss Share Agreements

EVANSVILLE, Ind., June 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Old National Bancorp (NASDAQ:ONB) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Old National Bank (“Old National” or “Bank”), has entered into an agreement with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) on June 22, 2016, that terminates Old National’s loss share agreements with the FDIC. These loss share agreements were entered into by the Bank in 2011 in connection with the Bank’s acquisition of substantially all of the assets and assumption of substantially all of the liabilities of Integra Bank National Association.

Under the terms of the agreement, the FDIC made a final payment of $8.7 million to Old National as consideration for the early termination of the loss share agreements. After the elimination of the FDIC indemnification asset and payment of settlement charges, the Bank expects to realize a pre-tax gain of approximately $220,000.

“The early termination of our loss share agreements with the FDIC creates several benefits for Old National and our stakeholders, including reduced operating costs, retention of all loss recoveries and simplified financial reporting,” said Jim Ryan, Old National Bancorp’s Chief Financial Officer. “It is also a testament to the hard work and dedication of our Credit Department in the work-out and recovery of these troubled assets.”

As a result of entering into the early termination agreements, the remaining assets that were covered by the loss share arrangements will be reclassified as non-covered as of June 30, 2016. Old National had $95.4 million of covered loans and $6.5 million of covered real estate owned as of March 31, 2016. The termination of the FDIC loss share agreements has no impact on the yields of these assets.

All rights and obligations of the Bank and the FDIC under the FDIC loss share agreements, including the settlement of loss share and expense reimbursement claims, have been eliminated under the early termination.
