Melanie Dressel, President and Chief Executive Officer of Columbia Banking System and Columbia Bank (NASDAQ: COLB) ("Columbia") said today upon the release of Columbia’s second quarter 2015 earnings, "We accomplished a lot this quarter, generating solid financial performance, especially in light of the after tax impact to earnings of $3.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, resulting from acquisition-related expense and FDIC acquired loan accounting. Despite intense competition, our bankers continue to expand existing and source new relationships. Their production of over $280 million in new loans represents our second highest quarterly total ever."

Ms. Dressel continued, "We completed the core operating system conversion for our latest acquisition during the quarter and are nearing the end of the integration process. The successful conversion was the result of the outstanding efforts of everyone involved to ensure there was minimal disruption to our customers and new team members."
