Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On April 29, 2020, BankUnited, Inc. (the “Company”) reported its results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. A copy of the Company’s press release containing this information and slides containing supplemental information related to this release are being furnished as Exhibit 99.1 and Exhibit 99.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
Item 8.01 Other Events.
The following risk factor supplements the disclosure in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019. As used in the risk factor, the terms the “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to BankUnited, Inc. and its subsidiaries unless the context otherwise requires.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused substantial disruption to the global economy which has adversely affected, and is expected to continue to adversely affect, the Company’s business and results of operations. The future impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy and the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition remains uncertain.
In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as a global pandemic. The pandemic has resulted in governmental authorities implementing numerous measures attempting to contain the spread and impact of COVID-19 such as travel bans and restrictions, quarantines, shelter in place orders, and limitations on business activities, including in major markets in which the Company and its clients are located or do business. The COVID-19 pandemic, and governmental responses to the pandemic, have severely negatively impacted the global economy, disrupted global supply chains, lowered equity market valuations, created significant volatility and disruption in financial markets, and increased unemployment levels.
This macroeconomic environment has had, and could continue to have, an adverse effect on the Company’s business and operations. Should current economic impacts persist or continue to deteriorate, this macroeconomic environment could have a continued adverse effect on our business and operations, including, but not limited to, decreased demand for the Company’s products and services, protracted periods of lower interest rates, loss of income resulting from forbearances, deferrals and fee waivers provided by the Company to its consumer and commercial borrowers, increased credit losses due to deterioration in the financial condition of our consumer and commercial borrowers, including declining asset and collateral values, which may continue to increase our provision for credit losses and net charge-offs and possible constraints on liquidity and capital, whether due to increases in risk-weighted assets related to supporting client activities or to regulatory actions. The business operations of the Company may also be disrupted if significant portions of its workforce or those of vendors or third-party service providers are unable to work effectively, including because of illness, quarantines, government actions, restrictions in connection with the pandemic, and technology limitations and/or disruptions. The Company also faces an increased risk of litigation and governmental and regulatory scrutiny as a result of the effects of the pandemic on market and economic conditions and actions taken by governmental authorities in response to those conditions.
The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts the Company’s business, results of operations, and financial condition, as well as its regulatory capital and liquidity ratios, will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain, including the scope and duration of the pandemic and actions taken by governmental authorities and other third parties in response to the pandemic. Moreover, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic may heighten many of the other risks described in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and any subsequent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or Current Report on Form 8-K including, but not limited to, financial market conditions, economic conditions, credit risk, interest rate risk, risk of security breaches and technology changes.
