In the opinion of management, the consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as of June 30, 2014, December 31, 2013, and June 30, 2013, the results of its operations and comprehensive income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 and the changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013.  Operating results or comprehensive income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results or comprehensive income that may be expected for any other interim period or the full year ending December 31, 2014.
 
Certain information and note disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  The unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 (the “2013 Annual Report”).
 
The Company accounts for its investments in its wholly owned special purpose entity, PPBI Trust I, under the equity method whereby the subsidiary’s net earnings are recognized in the Company’s statement of operations.
 
 
Note 2 – Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
 
Accounting Standards Adopted in 2014
 
In July 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the "FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2013-11,"Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists."  The provisions of ASU No. 2013-11 require an entity to present an unrecognized tax benefit, or portion thereof, in the statement of financial position as a reduction to a deferred tax asset for a net operating loss carryforward or a tax credit carryforward, with certain exceptions related to availability.  The Company adopted the provisions of ASU No. 2013-11 effective January 1, 2014.  The adoption of ASU No. 2013-11 had no impact on the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements. 
 
Accounting Standards Pending Adoption
 
In January 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-01,"Accounting for Investments in Qualified Affordable Housing Projects."  ASU No. 2014-01 permits reporting entities to make an accounting policy election to account for their investments in qualified affordable housing projects using the proportional amortization method if certain conditions are met.  Under the proportional amortization method, an entity amortizes the initial cost of the investment in proportion to the tax credits and other tax benefits received and recognizes the net investment performance in the income statement as a component of income tax expense.  This new guidance also requires new disclosures for all investors in these projects.  ASU No. 2014-01 is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2014.  Upon adoption, the guidance must be applied retrospectively to all periods presented.  However, entities that use the effective yield method to account for investments in these projects before adoption may continue to do so for these pre-existing investments.  The Company currently accounts for such investments using the effective yield method and plans to continue to do so for these pre-existing investments after adopting ASU No. 2014-01 on January 1, 2015.  The Company expects investments made after January 1, 2015 to meet the criteria required for the proportional amortization method and plans to make such an accounting policy election.  The adoption of ASU No. 2014-01 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements.
 
In January 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-04,"Reclassification of Residential Real Estate Collateralized Consumer Mortgage Loans upon Foreclosure."  The objective of this guidance is to clarify when an in substance repossession or foreclosure occurs, that is, when a creditor should be considered to have received physical possession of residential real estate property collateralizing a consumer mortgage loan such that the loan receivable should be derecognized and the real estate property recognized.  ASU No. 2014-04 states that an in substance repossession or foreclosure occurs, and a creditor is considered to have received physical possession of residential real estate property collateralizing a consumer mortgage loan, upon either (1) the creditor obtaining legal title to the residential real estate property upon completion of a foreclosure or (2) the borrower conveying all interest in the residential real estate property to the creditor to satisfy that loan through completion of a deed in lieu of foreclosure or through a similar legal agreement. Additionally, ASU No. 2014-04 requires interim and annual disclosure of both (1) the amount of foreclosed residential real estate property held by the creditor and (2) the recorded investment in consumer mortgage loans collateralized by residential real estate property that are in the process of foreclosure according to local requirements of the applicable jurisdiction.  ASU No. 2014-04 is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2014.  The adoption of ASU No. 2014-04 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements.
 
 
Note 3 – Significant Accounting Policies
 
Certain Acquired Loans:  As part of business acquisitions, the Bank acquires certain loans that have shown evidence of credit deterioration since origination.  These acquired loans are recorded at the allocated fair value, such that there is no carryover of the seller’s allowance for loan losses.  Such acquired loans are accounted for individually.  The Bank estimates the amount and timing of expected cash flows for each purchased loan, and the expected cash flows in excess of the allocated fair value is recorded as interest income over the remaining life of the loan (accretable yield).  The excess of the loan’s contractual principal and interest over expected cash flows is not recorded (non-accretable difference).  Over the life of the loan, expected cash flows continue to be estimated.  If the present value of expected cash flows is less than the carrying amount, a loss is recorded through the allowance for loan losses.  If the present value of expected cash flows is greater than the carrying amount, it is recognized as part of future interest income.
 
Goodwill and Core Deposit Intangible: Goodwill is generally determined as the excess of the fair value of the consideration transferred, plus the fair value of any noncontrolling interests in the acquiree, over the fair value of the net assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of the acquisition date.  Goodwill and intangible assets acquired in a purchase business combination and determined to have an indefinite useful life are not amortized, but tested for impairment at least annually or more frequently if events and circumstances exist that indicate the necessity for such impairment tests to be performed.  The Company has selected December 31 as the date to perform the annual impairment test.  Intangible assets with definite useful lives are amortized over their estimated useful lives to their estimated residual values.  Goodwill is the only intangible asset with an indefinite life on our balance sheet.
 
Core deposit intangible assets arising from whole bank acquisitions are amortized on an accelerated method over their estimated useful lives, which range from 6 to 10 years.
 
Use of Estimates:  The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.  The allowance for loan losses, the fair value of stock-based compensation awards, the fair values of financial instruments and the status of contingencies are particularly subject to change.
 
 
Note 4 –  Acquisitions
 
The Company accounted for the following transactions under the acquisition method of accounting which requires purchased assets and liabilities assumed to be recorded at their respective fair values at the date of acquisition.  The Company determined the fair value of the core deposit intangible, securities and deposits with the assistance of third party valuations.  The fair value of other real estate owned (“OREO”) was based on recent appraisals of the properties.
 
The estimated fair values in these acquisitions are subject to refinement as additional information relative to the closing date fair values become available through the measurement period, which can extend for up to one year after the closing date of the transaction.  While additional significant changes to the closing date fair values are not expected, any information relative to the changes in these fair values will be evaluated to determine if such changes are due to events and circumstances that existed as of the acquisition date.  During the measurement period, any such changes will be recorded as part of the closing date fair value.
 
Infinity Franchise Holdings Acquisition
 
On January 30, 2014, the Company completed its acquisition of Infinity Franchise Holdings, LLC (“Infinity Holdings”) and its wholly owned operating subsidiary Infinity Franchise Capital, LLC (“IFC” and together with Infinity Holdings, “IFH”), a national lender to franchisees in the quick service restaurant (“QSR”) industry, and other direct and indirect subsidiaries utilized in its business.  The value of the total consideration paid for the IFH acquisition was $17.4 million, which consisted of $8.3 million paid in cash and the issuance of 562,469 shares of the Corporation’s stock, which was valued at $16.02 per share as measured by the 10-day average closing price immediately prior to closing of the transaction.
 
The acquisition of IFH is expected to further diversify our loan portfolio with commercial and industrial and owner-occupied commercial real estate loans, to deploy excess liquidity into higher yielding assets, to positively impact our net interest margin and to further leverage our strong capital base.  The QSR franchisee lending business is a niche market that we believe provides attractive growth opportunities for the Company in the future.  IFH had no delinquent loans or adversely classified assets as of the acquisition date; and the acquisition is expected to be accretive to our 2014 earnings per share.
 
Goodwill in the amount of $5.5 million was recognized in the IFH acquisition.  Goodwill represents the future economic benefits arising from net assets acquired that are not individually identified and separately recognized and is attributable to synergies expected to be derived from the combination of the two entities.  Goodwill recognized in this transaction is not deductible for income tax purposes.
 
The following table represents the assets acquired and liabilities assumed of IFH as of January 30, 2014 and the provisional fair value adjustments and amounts recorded by the Company in 2014 under the acquisition method of accounting:

San Diego Trust Bank Acquisition
 
On June 25, 2013, the Company completed its acquisition of San Diego Trust Bank (“SDTB”) in exchange for consideration valued at $30.6 million which consisted of $16.2 million of cash and 1,198,255 shares of the Corporation’s common stock.
 
SDTB was a San Diego, California based state-chartered bank.  The acquisition was an opportunity for the Company to acquire a banking network that complemented our existing banking franchise and expanded into a new market area.  Additionally, the SDTB acquisition improved the Company’s deposit base by lowering our cost of deposits and providing an opportunity to accelerate future core deposit growth in the San Diego, California, market area.
 
Goodwill in the amount of $5.6 million was recognized in the SDTB acquisition.  Goodwill recognized in this transaction is not deductible for income tax purposes.

First Association Bank Acquisition
 
On March 15, 2013, the Company completed its acquisition of First Association Bank (“FAB”) in exchange for consideration valued as of the closing at $57.9 million which consisted of $43.0 million of cash and 1,279,217 shares of the Corporation’s common stock.
 
FAB was a Dallas, Texas, based bank which specialized in providing commercial banking services to home owner association (“HOA”) management companies throughout the United States.  The FAB acquisition was an opportunity for the Company to acquire a highly efficient, consistently profitable and niche-focused business that complimented our banking franchise.  Additionally, this acquisition improved the Company’s deposit base by lowering our cost of deposits and providing a platform to accelerate future core deposit growth from HOAs.
 
Goodwill in the amount of $11.9 million was recognized in the FAB acquisition.  Goodwill recognized in this transaction is not deductible for income tax purposes.

From time to time, we may purchase or sell loans in order to manage concentrations, maximize interest income, change risk profiles, improve returns and generate liquidity.
 
The Company makes residential and commercial loans held for investment to customers located primarily in California.  Consequently, the underlying collateral for our loans and a borrower’s ability to repay may be impacted unfavorably by adverse changes in the economy and real estate market in the region.
 
Under applicable laws and regulations, the Bank may not make secured loans to one borrower in excess of 25% of the Bank’s unimpaired capital plus surplus and likewise in excess of 15% for unsecured loans.  These loans-to-one borrower limitations result in a dollar limitation of $51.5 million for secured loans and $30.9 million for unsecured loans at June 30, 2014.  At June 30, 2014, the Bank’s largest aggregate outstanding balance of loans to one borrower was $34.4 million of secured credit.
