Guaranty Bancorp Announces Third Quarter 2008 Financial Results
DENVER, Nov. 4, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guaranty Bancorp (Nasdaq:GBNK) today reported a third quarter 2008 net loss of $265.8 million, or a $5.21 loss per basic and diluted share, compared to third quarter 2007 net income of $1.5 million, or 3 cents earnings per basic and diluted share. The third quarter 2008 net loss was primarily a result of a $250.7 million non-cash charge related to goodwill impairment recorded during the quarter. This non-cash charge, which had no impact on operations, liquidity or capital, was primarily the result of the current adverse economic climate in our markets and for the overall financial services industry. Additionally, the Company recorded a $22.7 million increase to the provision for loan losses in the third quarter 2008 as compared to the third quarter 2007. These decreases to net income were partially offset by an aggregate $3.1 million decline in all other categories of noninterest expense, excluding the goodwill impairment.
