CenterState Banks in Davenport, Fla., will record a first-quarter $17.5 million net loss on the early termination of its loss-share agreements associated with seven failed banks.

The $2.3 billion-asset holding company for CenterState Bank of Florida received a $5.5 million payment from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., to end the loss-share agreements. The payment will result in a pretax loss of about $17.5 million, which will reduce CenterState's first-quarter earnings by about 25 cents per share.

The termination will produce a loss because CenterState will write off its remaining FDIC indemnification asset balance and settlement charges payable to the FDIC.

Assets that were covered by the loss-share agreements, including covered loans totaling $177.3 million and other real estate owned totaling $9.6 million, will be reclassified as noncovered assets.

The early termination will also eliminate CenterState's FDIC receivable for loss-share agreements, which totaled $25.8 million at Dec. 31. About $21.5 million of the receivable had been scheduled to be amortized against future earnings.

CenterState acquired five failed banks in Florida between 2010 and 2012 and entered loss-share agreements on all five banks. Those banks were First Guaranty Bank & Trust in Jacksonville; Central Florida State Bank in Belleview; Independent National Bank in Ocala; Community National Bank in Bartow; and Olde Cypress Community Bank in Clewiston.

Additionally, as part of its June 2014 acquisition of First Southern Bank in Boca Raton, Fla., CenterState assumed loss-share agreements related to two additional banks, First Commercial Bank of Florida in Orlando; and Haven Trust Bank in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

CenterState is the latest bank to end its loss-share agreements early, as the FDIC has loosened requirements, making them eligible for early termination.
