Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On January 12, 2015, Nancy Reinhard notified Doral Financial Corporation (the “Company”) that she was considering resigning her position as Acting Chief Financial Officer and Principal Accounting Officer of the Company. On January 16, 2015, Ms. Reinhard did in fact resign from these positions effective January 19, 2015. The Company is working to fill the positions of Chief Financial Officer and Principal Accounting Officer.


This communication contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of, and subject to the protection of, the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended. In addition, the Company may make forward-looking statements in its other press releases, filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) or in other public or shareholder communications and its senior management may make forward-looking statements orally to analysts, investors, the media and others.

Forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts, but instead represent the Company’s current expectations regarding future events. Such forward-looking statements may be generally identified by the use of words or phrases such as “would be,” “will allow,” “intends to,” “will likely result,” “are expected to,” “will continue,” “is anticipated,” “estimate,” “project,” “believe,” “expect,” “predict,” “forecast,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “outlook,” “target,” “goal,” and similar expressions and future conditional verbs such as “would,” “should,” “could,” “might,” “can” or “may” or similar expressions.

The Company cautions readers not to place undue reliance on any of these forward-looking statements since they speak only as of the date made and represent the Company’s expectations of future conditions or results and are not guarantees of future performance. The Company does not undertake and specifically disclaims any obligations to update any forward-looking statements to reflect occurrences or unanticipated events or circumstances after the date of those statements other than as required by law, including the requirements of applicable securities laws.

Forward-looking statements are, by their nature, subject to risks and uncertainties and changes in circumstances, many of which are beyond the Company’s control. Factors that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements include the adequacy of the Company’s allowance for loan and lease losses, delinquency trends, market risk and the impact of general economic conditions, interest rate changes, capital markets conditions, capital adequacy and liquidity, whether purchase price adjustments or claims of indemnification will be made in connection with the sale of performing and non-performing assets by the Company and Doral Bank and whether Doral Bank will have liability in respect of any such claim, Doral Bank’s ability to obtain the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s consent to a new Capital Restoration Plan and Contingency Plan and to successfully execute it if approved, the Company’s ability to continue to operate its business as a going concern, and the effect of legal or regulatory proceedings, tax legislation and tax rules, the Company’s ability to use its deferred tax assets and related reserves, the Company’s ability to collect the monies due to the Company or its subsidiaries from the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (the “Commonwealth”) and to qualify payment obligations from the Commonwealth as Tier 1 Capital at Doral Bank, compliance and regulatory matters and new accounting standards and guidance on the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. These factors and additional factors that may cause the Company’s results to differ from forward-looking statements are described more completely under the heading “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, which was filed with the SEC on March 21, 2014 and is available on the Company’s website at www.doralbank.com, as updated from time to time with the Company’s periodic and other reports filed and to be filed with the SEC.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
