Synovus Financial Corp. said it expects to report that its fourth-quarter loan-loss provision nearly quintupled from a year earlier, to $250 million. The Columbus, Ga., company also expects to report a chargeoff ratio of 2.2%, mostly because of problems in its Atlanta residential real estate portfolio.

Additionally, Synovus said it is assessing its goodwill for potential impairment during the fourth quarter.
Synovus is scheduled to issue its fourth-quarter report Jan. 22.
