AmericanWest Bancorp. of Spokane reported a third-quarter loss of $96.9 million, or $5.63 a share, compared with a profit of $5.3 million, or 31 cents a share, a year earlier.

The loss was primarily driven by an $82 million goodwill impairment charge and a surge in nonperforming loans that led to a $27.6 million loan-loss provision, up 2,200% from a year earlier, AmericanWest said Friday.
