CPB's parent finalizes $125M share buyback

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:31 a.m. HST, Mar 28, 2014

The parent of Central Pacific Bank said final results have been confirmed and it will repurchase more than 6.1 million shares worth $125 million, following an auction that concluded March 21, and separate agreements with its two largest shareholders.

The state's fourth-largest bank said Friday it will buy back $68.8 million worth of its Central Pacific Financial Corp. common stock at the price of $20.20 from shareholders who tendered shares via the auction. Central Pacific also will repurchase $56.2 million worth of shares through agreements with its two largest shareholders, Carlyle Financial Services Harbor LP and ACMO-CPF LLC, at the price of $20.20 per share. The bank will repurchase $28.1 million worth of shares from each of the two shareholders.

Carlyle and ACMO-CPF were the lead investors which each purchased $98.6 million worth of Central Pacific Financial Corp. stock in February 2011 at the price of $10 a share as part of the bank's $325 million recapitalization. Carlyle and ACMO-CPF each currently owns 22.5 percent of the company's 42.1 million outstanding shares.

The private repurchases are expected to occur April 7, and the shares accepted for purchase through the tender offer will be paid "promptly" according to the terms of the tender offer.

Upon completion of the tender offer and private purchases, Central Pacific will have about 35.9 million shares outstanding.

 Central Pacific's stock closed up 25 cents Friday at $20.05 on the New York Stock Exchange.

Banks buying back seems like insider trading they have the most and current information ...the small investor is getting less and less chance ; dividend vs capital gain the bank president and staff always wins they have with the most intell.

That makes no sense. Share buybacks aren't limited to financial institutions. Any company can buy back shares off the market. Apple purchased $50 billion of their stock this year via their share buyback program. It actually increases shareholder value by decreasing share dilution (total amount of stock available). Small investors aren't restricted from following CPB in buying shares on the open market if they want to follow the bank's buyback program. Shareholders are the ones who "win" here.
