SAN FRANCISCO -- Aided by a one-time $135 million gain from the sale of its Florida operations, California Federal Bank said Monday that it earned $149.5 million in the third quarter. The profit, equal to $2.67 a share, reversed a $56.8 million loss for the comparable 1993 period.

In the third quarter, California Federal wrote off all its goodwill, totaling $270 million. The charge was taken retroactively in the 1994 first quarter, contributing to a $436.1 million net loss reported for the first nine months of 1994.
