NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - UNAUDITED
March 31, 2015


Note 1    Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
BankUnited, Inc. ("BankUnited, Inc." or "BKU"), is a national bank holding company with one wholly-owned subsidiary, BankUnited, National Association ("BankUnited" or the "Bank"), collectively, the Company. BankUnited, a national banking association headquartered in Miami Lakes, Florida, provides a full range of banking and related services to individual and corporate customers through 100 branches located in 15 Florida counties and 6 banking centers located in the New York metropolitan area at March 31, 2015.
On May 21, 2009, BankUnited acquired substantially all of the assets and assumed all of the non-brokered deposits and substantially all of the other liabilities of BankUnited, FSB from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") in a transaction referred to as the "FSB Acquisition." Neither the Company nor the Bank had any substantive operations prior to May 21, 2009. In connection with the FSB Acquisition, BankUnited entered into two loss sharing agreements with the FDIC (the "Loss Sharing Agreements"). The Loss Sharing Agreements consist of a single family shared-loss agreement (the "Single Family Shared-Loss Agreement"), and a commercial and other loans shared-loss agreement, (the "Commercial Shared-Loss Agreement"). The Single Family Shared-Loss Agreement provides for FDIC loss sharing and the Bank’s reimbursement for recoveries to the FDIC through May 21, 2019 for single family residential loans and other real estate owned ("OREO"). Loss sharing under the Commercial Shared-Loss Agreement terminated on May 21, 2014. The Commercial Shared-Loss Agreement continues to provide for the Bank’s reimbursement of recoveries to the FDIC through May 21, 2017 for all other covered assets, including commercial real estate, commercial and industrial and consumer loans, certain investment securities and commercial OREO. Gains realized on the sale of formerly covered investment securities are included in recoveries subject to reimbursement. The assets covered under the Loss Sharing Agreements are collectively referred to as the “covered assets.” Pursuant to the terms of the Loss Sharing Agreements, the covered assets are subject to a stated loss threshold whereby the FDIC will reimburse BankUnited for 80% of losses related to the covered assets up to $4.0 billion and 95% of losses in excess of this amount, beginning with the first dollar of loss incurred. 
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required for a fair presentation of financial position, results of operations and cash flows in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto appearing in BKU’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 filed with the SEC. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected in future periods. 
Certain amounts presented for prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.
Accounting Estimates
In preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ significantly from these estimates.
Significant estimates include the allowance for loan and lease losses ("ALLL"), the amount and timing of expected cash flows from covered assets and the FDIC indemnification asset, and the fair values of investment securities and other financial instruments. Management has used information provided by third party valuation specialists to assist in the determination of the fair values of investment securities.

The Company monitors its investment securities available for sale for other-than-temporary impairment ("OTTI") on an individual security basis. No securities were determined to be other-than-temporarily impaired during the three months ended March 31, 2015 or 2014.  The Company does not intend to sell securities that are in significant unrealized loss positions and it is not more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell these securities before recovery of the amortized cost basis, which may be at maturity. At March 31, 2015, 30 securities were in unrealized loss positions. The amount of impairment related to eight of these securities was considered insignificant, totaling approximately $60 thousand and no further analysis with respect to these securities was considered necessary. The basis for concluding that impairment of the remaining securities was not other-than-temporary is further described below:

BANKUNITED, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - UNAUDITED
March 31, 2015

U.S. Government agency and sponsored enterprise residential mortgage-backed securities:
At March 31, 2015, six U.S. Government agency and sponsored enterprise residential mortgage-backed securities were in unrealized loss positions. The unrealized losses were primarily attributable to an increase in medium and long-term market interest rates subsequent to the date the securities were acquired. The amount of impairment of each of the individual securities was 2% or less of amortized cost.  The timely payment of principal and interest on these securities is explicitly or implicitly guaranteed by the U.S. Government. Given the limited severity of impairment and the expectation of timely payment of principal and interest, the impairments were considered to be temporary.
Private label residential mortgage-backed securities and CMOs:
At March 31, 2015, four private label residential mortgage-backed securities were in unrealized loss positions.  The unrealized losses were primarily due to widening credit spreads on certain variable rate securities and an increase in medium and long-term market rates subsequent to acquisition. These securities were assessed for OTTI using third-party developed credit and prepayment behavioral models and CUSIP level constant default rates, voluntary prepayment rates and loss severity and delinquency assumptions.  The results of these assessments were not indicative of credit losses that would result in the Company recovering less than its amortized cost basis related to any of these securities as of March 31, 2015. Given the limited severity of impairment and the expectation of timely recovery of outstanding principal, the impairments were considered to be temporary.
Private label commercial mortgage-backed securities:
At March 31, 2015, five private label commercial mortgage-backed securities were in unrealized loss positions. The unrealized losses were primarily attributable to an increase in medium and long-term market interest rates subsequent to the date the securities were acquired and widening credit spreads on one less liquid security. The amount of impairment of each of the individual securities was less than 1% of amortized cost.  These securities were assessed for OTTI using third-party developed models, incorporating assumptions consistent with the collateral characteristics of each security.  The results of this analysis were not indicative of expected credit losses.  Given the limited severity of impairment and the expectation of timely recovery of outstanding principal, the impairments were considered to be temporary.
Single family rental real estate-backed securities:
At March 31, 2015, six single family rental real estate-backed securities were in unrealized loss positions. The unrealized losses were primarily due to widening credit spreads. The securities had been in unrealized loss positions for nine months or less and the amount of impairment of each of the individual securities was 2% or less of amortized cost.  Management's analysis of the credit characteristics and levels of subordination for each of the securities is not indicative of projected credit losses. Given the limited duration and severity of impairment and the absence of projected credit losses, the impairments were considered to be temporary.
Collateralized loan obligations:
At March 31, 2015, one collateralized loan obligation was in an unrealized loss position, due to widening credit spreads. This security had been in an unrealized loss position for seven months and the amount of impairment was less than 1% of amortized cost. Given the limited duration and severity of impairment and the results of independent analysis of the credit quality of loans underlying the security, the impairment was considered to be temporary.
Note 4   Loans and Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses 
The Company’s loan portfolio includes loans acquired in the FSB Acquisition. Residential loans acquired in the FSB Acquisition are covered under the Single Family Shared-Loss Agreement (the “covered loans”). Loans acquired in the FSB Acquisition may be further segregated between those acquired with evidence of deterioration in credit quality since origination (“Acquired Credit Impaired” or “ACI” loans) and those acquired without evidence of deterioration in credit quality since origination (“non-ACI” loans).

For the three months ended March 31, 2014, covered 1-4 single family residential loans with UPB of $16 million were sold from a pool of ACI loans with a zero carrying value. Proceeds of the sale of loans from this pool, representing realization of accretable yield, were recorded in interest income. The gain or loss on the sale of loans from the remaining pools, representing the difference between the recorded investment and consideration received, was recorded in “Gain (loss) on sale of loans, net” in the accompanying consolidated statements of income.
During the three months ended March 31, 2014, in accordance with the terms of the Commercial Shared-Loss Agreement, the Bank requested and received approval from the FDIC to sell certain covered commercial and consumer loans. These loans were transferred to loans held for sale at the lower of carrying value or fair value, determined at the individual loan level, upon receipt of FDIC approval and sold in March 2014. The reduction of carrying value to fair value for specific loans was recognized in the provision for loan losses. The following table summarizes the pre-tax impact of these sales, as reflected in the consolidated statements of income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 (in thousands):

Credit quality information 
New commercial relationships on non-accrual status with internal risk ratings of substandard or doubtful and with committed balances greater than or equal to $750,000 as well as loans that have been modified in troubled debt restructurings (“TDRs”) are individually evaluated for impairment. ACI loans or loan pools are considered to be impaired when there has been further deterioration in the cash flows expected at acquisition plus any additional cash flows expected to be collected arising from changes in estimates after acquisition, other than due to decreases in interest rate indices and changes in prepayment assumptions. Discount continues to be accreted on ACI loans or pools as long as there are expected future cash flows in excess of the current carrying amount; therefore, these loans are not classified as non-accrual even though they may be contractually delinquent. ACI 1-4 single family residential and home equity loans accounted for in pools are evaluated for impairment on a pool basis and the amount of any impairment is measured based on the expected aggregate cash flows of the pools. ACI commercial and commercial real estate loans are evaluated individually for impairment.
