NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Columbia Banking System, Inc.
1.
Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
The interim unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Columbia Banking System, Inc. (“we”, “our”, “Columbia” or the “Company”) and its subsidiaries, including its wholly owned banking subsidiary Columbia State Bank (“Columbia Bank” or the “Bank”) and West Coast Trust Company, Inc. (“West Coast Trust”). All intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated in consolidation. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented have been included. The results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of results to be anticipated for the year ending December 31, 2014. The accompanying interim unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and related notes contained in the Company’s 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Due to the timing of the acquisition of West Coast Bancorp (“West Coast”), our results of operations for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 include the acquisition for the full six month period, however the prior year period only includes the acquisition for three months of the six month period. See Note 3, Business Combinations, for further information regarding this acquisition.
Significant Accounting Policies
The significant accounting policies used in preparation of our consolidated financial statements are disclosed in our 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K. There have not been any changes in our significant accounting policies compared to those contained in our 2013 Form 10-K disclosure for the year ended December 31, 2013.

Accounting Pronouncements Recently Issued
In June 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-12, Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Services Period. The amendments in ASU 2014-12 provide guidance for determining compensation cost under specific circumstances when an employee is eligible to vest in an award regardless of whether the employee is rendering service on the date the performance target is achieved. ASU 2014-12 becomes effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2015 with early adoption permitted. As of June 30, 2014, the Company did not have any share-based payment awards that include performance targets that could be achieved after the requisite service period. As such, the adoption of ASU No. 2014-12 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
In June 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-11, Repurchase-to-Maturity Transactions, Repurchase Financings, and Disclosures. The amendments in ASU 2014-11 change the accounting for repurchase-to-maturity transactions and linked repurchase financings to secured borrowing accounting, which is consistent with accounting for other repurchase agreements. Additionally, the amendment requires new disclosures on transfers accounted for as sales in transactions that are economically similar to repurchase agreements and requires increased transparency on collateral pledged in secured borrowings. The amendments in this update will be effective for the first interim or annual period beginning after December 31, 2014, with the exception of the collateral disclosures which will be effective for interim periods beginning after March 15, 2015. Early application is not permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact that this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements, but does not expect the guidance to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-04 No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The guidance in this update supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in ASC Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, and most industry-specific guidance throughout the industry topics of the codification. For public companies, this update will be effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016. The Company is currently assessing the impact that this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements, but does not expect the guidance to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Table of Contents

In April 2014, the the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-08, Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity. ASU 2014-08 raises the threshold for a disposal to qualify as a discontinued operation and requires new disclosures of both discontinued operations and certain other disposals that do not meet the definition of a discontinued operation. It is effective for annual periods beginning on or after December 15, 2014. Early adoption is permitted but only for disposals that have not been reported in financial statements previously issued. The Company is assessing the impact of the new guidance on its consolidated financial statements.
In January 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-04, Reclassification of Residential Real Estate Collateralized Consumer Mortgage Loans Upon Foreclosure. The Update clarifies when a creditor would be considered to have received physical possession of residential real estate property collateralizing a consumer mortgage loan such that all or a portion of the loan would be derecognized and the real estate property recognized. Under the guidance, a consumer loan collateralized by residential real estate should be reclassified to other real estate owned when (1) the creditor obtains legal title to the residential property or (2) the borrower conveys all interest in the property to the creditor to satisfy the loan by completing a deed in lieu of foreclosure or similar agreement. In addition, an entity is required to disclose the amount of residential real estate meeting the conditions above, and the recorded investment in consumer mortgage loans secured by residential real estate that are in the process of foreclosure. ASU 2014-04 is effective for annual and interim reporting periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2014. Adoption of the new guidance is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
In January 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-01, Accounting for Investments in Qualified Affordable Housing Projects. The Update provides guidance on accounting for investments by a reporting entity in flow-through limited liability entities that manage or invest in affordable housing projects that qualify for the low-income housing tax credit. The amendments in this Update permit the reporting entity to make an accounting policy election to account for its investments in qualified affordable housing projects using the proportional amortization method if certain conditions are met. Under the proportional amortization method, the cost of the investment is amortized each reporting period in proportion to the tax credits received. Under the new guidance, classification of the amortization would change from noninterest expense to income tax expense. ASU 2014-01 is effective for annual and interim reporting periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2014. The guidance is to be applied retrospectively to all periods presented. The Company is assessing the impact of the new guidance on its consolidated financial statements.
3.
Business Combinations
On April 1, 2013, the Company completed its acquisition of West Coast. The Company paid $540.8 million in total consideration to acquire 100% of the voting equity interests of West Coast. The primary reason for the acquisition was to expand the Company’s geographic footprint consistent with its ongoing growth strategy. The fair value of the net assets acquired totaled $312.4 million, including $1.88 billion of deposits, $1.41 billion of loans and $15.3 million of other intangible assets. Goodwill of $228.4 million was recorded as part of the acquisition. The goodwill is not deductible for income tax purposes.
The operating results of the Company include the operating results produced by the acquired assets and assumed liabilities for the period April 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014. Disclosure of the amount of West Coast’s revenue and net income (excluding integration costs) included in Columbia’s consolidated income statement is impracticable due to the integration of the operations and accounting for this acquisition.

Table of Contents

The following table presents certain unaudited pro forma information for the six month period ended June 30, 2013, for illustrative purposes only. This unaudited pro forma information was calculated as if West Coast had been acquired as of the beginning of the year prior to the acquisition. The unaudited estimated pro forma information combines the historical results of West Coast with the Company’s consolidated historical results and includes certain adjustments reflecting the estimated impact of certain fair value adjustments for the respective periods. The pro forma information is not indicative of what would have occurred had the acquisition occurred as of the beginning of the year prior to the acquisition. In particular, no adjustments have been made to eliminate the impact of other-than-temporary impairment losses and losses recognized on the sale of securities that may not have been necessary had the investment securities been recorded at fair value as of the beginning of the year prior to the acquisition. The unaudited pro forma information does not consider any changes to the provision for credit losses resulting from recording loan assets at fair value. Additionally, Columbia expects to achieve further operating cost savings and other business synergies, including revenue growth, as a result of the acquisition which are not reflected in the pro forma amounts that follow. As a result, actual amounts would have differed from the unaudited pro forma information presented.

At June 30, 2014, there were 54 U.S. government agency and government-sponsored enterprise mortgage-backed securities and collateralized mortgage obligations securities in an unrealized loss position, of which 45 were in a continuous loss position for 12 months or more. The decline in fair value is attributable to changes in interest rates relative to where these investments fall within the yield curve and their individual characteristics. Because the Company does not intend to sell these securities nor does the Company consider it more likely than not that it will be required to sell these securities before the recovery of amortized cost basis, which may be upon maturity, the Company does not consider these investments to be other-than-temporarily impaired at June 30, 2014.
At June 30, 2014, there were 88 state and municipal government securities in an unrealized loss position, of which 64 were in a continuous loss position for 12 months or more. The unrealized losses on state and municipal securities were caused by interest rate changes or widening of market spreads subsequent to the purchase of the individual securities. Management monitors published credit ratings of these securities for adverse changes. As of June 30, 2014, none of the rated obligations of state and local government entities held by the Company had a below investment grade credit rating. Because the credit quality of these securities are investment grade and the Company does not intend to sell these securities nor does the Company consider it more likely than not that it will be required to sell these securities before the recovery of amortized cost basis, which may be upon maturity, the Company does not consider these investments to be other-than-temporarily impaired at June 30, 2014.
At June 30, 2014, there were 27 U.S. government agency and government-sponsored enterprise securities in an unrealized loss position, 22 of which were in a continuous loss position for 12 months or more. The decline in fair value is attributable to changes in interest rates relative to where these investments fall within the yield curve and their individual characteristics. Because the Company does not currently intend to sell these securities nor does the Company consider it more likely than not that it will be required to sell these securities before the recovery of amortized cost basis, which may be upon maturity, the Company does not consider these investments to be other-than-temporarily impaired at June 30, 2014.

Table of Contents

At June 30, 2014, there were two U.S. government securities in an unrealized loss position, both of which were in a continuous loss position for 12 months or more. The decline in fair value is attributable to changes in interest rates relative to where these investments fall within the yield curve and their individual characteristics. Because the Company does not currently intend to sell these securities nor does the Company consider it more likely than not that it will be required to sell these securities before the recovery of amortized cost basis, which may be upon maturity, the Company does not consider these investments to be other-than-temporarily impaired at June 30, 2014.
At June 30, 2014, there were two other securities in an unrealized loss position, both of which were in a continuous unrealized loss position for 12 months or more. The decline in fair value is attributable to changes in interest rates and the additional risk premium investors are demanding for investment securities with these characteristics. The Company does not consider these investments to be other-than-temporarily impaired at June 30, 2014 as it has the intent and ability to hold the investments for sufficient time to allow for recovery in the market value.

The aggregate dollar amount of these loans was $11.6 million at June 30, 2014 and $14.2 million at December 31, 2013. During the first six months of 2014, advances on related party loans totaled $1.1 million and repayments totaled $3.7 million.
