Item 8.01.  Other Events.


East West Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Form 8-K”) to present the financial information in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008, filed on March 2, 2009 (the “Form 10-K”), to reflect revised financial information and disclosures as a result of changes in the Company’s segment reporting as described below.


During the first quarter of 2009, the Company implemented changes to the composition and alignment of its reportable segments under SFAS No. 131, “Disclosure about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information,” (“SFAS No. 131”).  As a result of these changes, the Company’s previous five reportable segments have now been aggregated into three reportable segments: Retail Banking, Commercial Banking, and Other.  Specifically, the changes effected during the first quarter of 2009 are as follows:


·      The Residential Lending segment has been aggregated into the Retail Banking reportable segment due to the consumer-centric nature of the products and services offered by these two segments as well as the synergistic relationship between these two segments in generating consumer mortgage loans.


·      The Commercial Lending reportable segment has been renamed “Commercial Banking” and now includes East West Insurance Services, Inc. (“EWIS”), the Company’s insurance brokerage agency whose operations had historically been aggregated into the “Other” reportable segment.   Over the years, the operations of EWIS have increasingly become more integrated with the Company’s commercial banking operations.


·      The Treasury segment has been aggregated into the Other reportable segment which provides broad administrative support to the Retail Banking and Commercial Banking segments, the two core reportable segments of the Company.


Management of the Company believes that this new reporting structure better aligns its service structure with its customer base and provides a more efficient platform to manage the complexities and challenges impacting the Company’s current business environment.
