Atlantic Capital Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ:ACBI) Files An 8-K Other EventsItem 8.01. Other Events.
Atlantic Capital Bancshares, Inc. (the “Company”) has concluded that certain provisions of the tax reform legislation signed into law on December 22, 2017, which among other items reduces the federal corporate tax rate to 21%, will cause the Company’s net deferred tax asset to be revalued. The Company’s net deferred tax asset represents net operating loss carryforwards that will be used to reduce corporate taxes expected to be paid in the future as well as differences between the carrying amounts and tax basis of assets and liabilities carried on the Company’s balance sheet. The Company has performed an analysis to determine the impact of the revaluation of the deferred tax asset. The Company estimates that the value of the deferred tax asset will be reduced by a range of approximately $17 to $20 million. The estimated impact of the revaluation on the Company’s fourth quarter earnings would be approximately ($0.66) to ($0.77) per share and the estimated impact of the revaluation on the Company’s tangible book value would be approximately ($0.66) to ($0.78) per share.
The Company’s revaluation of its net deferred tax asset may be subject to further adjustments, based on clarifications of the recent legislation, that cannot be estimated at this time. As such, the Company is unable to make a final determination of the impact on the quarterly and fiscal year earnings for the period ending December 31, 2017 at this time.
To the extent required, the Company may file one or more amendments to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
