Impact of Tax Reform on FCB Financial Holdings, Inc.
FCB Financial Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") announced today that as a result of the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” (the “TCJA”), the Company is required to revalue its deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities to account for the future impact of lower corporate tax rates on these deferred amounts. The reduction in the federal corporate tax rate will negatively impact the Company’s fourth quarter 2017 results but is expected to positively impact the Company’s future after-tax earnings.
The Company has performed a preliminary analysis as of December 31, 2017 estimating the impact of this one-time non-cash charge to the income statement of approximately $14.3 million that will reduce the Company’s fourth quarter 2017 results. to the Company’s analysis, the fourth quarter earnings impact will be approximately $(0.31) per share and the tangible book value impact will be approximately $(0.32) per share based on fourth quarter weighted average diluted shares of 46,565,052 and total shares outstanding of 44,380,580 at year end, respectively.
These preliminary estimates of the impact of the TCJA on the Company should not be viewed as a substitute for full financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, and are not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved for any future periods. The estimates have been prepared by management and the Company's independent auditors have not completed their audit or review of such information.
