"While my first few weeks have coincided with the COVID-19 pandemic, I am excited to be a part of Great Western Bank. This unprecedented time has allowed me the opportunity to see the organization's strength and the team's commitment to supporting our customer base as well as ensuring the wellness and safety of our employees," said Mark Borrecco, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe our stable capital position along with specific actions to address the COVID-19 impact to goodwill valuation as well as our loan loss reserves appropriately reflect the current environment."
Impact and Response to COVID-19 Pandemic
Through this time of disruption we have remained open for business supporting our customers while implementing our business continuity plan to mitigate the risks of the spread of COVID-19 to our employees and customers. As of April 24th, we have more than 750 employees working remotely from home with those still in the office appropriately spaced, 97% of our branches open with limited access, increased functionality of ATM, online banking and mobile channels, and processed 2,300 applications approved for Paycheck Protection Program loans totaling over $600.0 million. We have also taken such other actions as social distancing, restrictions on in-person meetings and conferences, Company travel restrictions and increased sanitary protocols. We believe these actions offer the best protection for our employees and customers, an enhance our ability to continue providing our banking services.
Financial results this quarter included several items linked to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most significantly, we recognized an impairment included in noninterest expense of $742.4 million, of which $622.4 million stemmed from goodwill related to the acquisition of Great Western Bank in 2008 by National Australia Bank, $118.2 million from goodwill related to subsequent acquisitions and $1.8 million from certain intangible assets, which were considered impaired given the market and valuation disruption during the quarter. The expense was offset in part by a related benefit from income taxes of $29.3 million.
In addition, the COVID-19 impacts included $73.8 million in several credit and other related charges for loan and other real estate reserves, including a $59.7 million charge for collectively evaluated allowance increases in provision expense under the incurred loss model, $7.1 million and $3.3 million of charges for fair value credit risk and derivative reserves in noninterest income, respectively, a $3.3 million write down on an OREO hotel property negatively impacted by COVID-19 pandemic travel restrictions, and $0.4 million of charges for the reserve on unfunded commitments in noninterest expenses. All of these pretax expenses are offset in part by a related benefit from income taxes of $17.2 million. See also the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliation" section in this document for further discussion of the above items.
