08:44 EDTASRVAmeriserve Financial reports impairment charges and profitability improvement
AmeriServ Financial expects to record a Q3 non-cash goodwill impairment charge of approximately $675K related to West Chester Capital Advisors, its registered investment advisor subsidiary. The company's Q3 financial results will also include approximately $150K of non-recurring expenses related to a profitability improvement project. The company engaged a consulting firm which provided the company with recommendations to reduce expenses and improve future profitability beginning in Q4 and continuing into 2015. The company also recently offered an early retirement incentive program to employees that were at least age 60 with 15 years of pension benefit service. A total of 46 employees, or approximately 13% of our workforce, are eligible for the program. The company expects to incur a one-time charge in Q4 currently anticipated to be approximately $550K at maximum if all 46 eligible employees elect to participate. The company initially expects that between the profitability improvement project and the early retirement incentive program, it should be able to reduce future non-interest expenses by $1.5M annually once these programs are fully implemented.
