There were no measurement period adjustments recorded during the year ended December 31, 2015. All adjustments were recorded in the year ended December 31, 2014.
The application of the acquisition method of accounting resulted in a bargain purchase gain of $14.6 million. The operations of CBI are included in our operating results since the acquisition date. Acquisition-related costs of $2.0 million and $6.6 million for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively, were expensed as incurred as merger and integration costs. These expenses are comprised primarily of system conversion costs and professional fees. The $297.3 million estimated fair value of loans acquired from CBI was determined by utilizing a discounted cash flow methodology considering credit and interest rate risk. Cash flows were determined by estimating future loan losses and the rate of prepayments. Projected monthly cash flows were then discounted to present value based on a current market rate for similar loans. There was no carryover of CBI’s allowance for loan losses associated with the loans acquired as loans were initially recorded at fair value.

The core deposit intangible (“CDI”) of $2.2 million was recognized for the core deposits acquired from CBI. The CDI is amortized over its useful life of approximately 10 years on an accelerated basis and reviewed for impairment as circumstances warrant. The CDI amortization expense for the years ended December 31, 2016, 2015 and 2014 was $326,000, $379,000 and $132,000, respectively.
The fair value of savings and transactional deposit accounts was assumed to approximate the carrying value as these accounts have no stated maturity and are payable on demand. Expected cash flows were utilized for the fair value calculation of the certificates of deposit based on the contractual terms of the certificates of deposit and the cash flows were discounted based on a current market rate for certificates of deposit with corresponding maturities. The premium of $11.3 million was recognized for certificates of deposit acquired from CBI. The accretion of time deposits premium for the years ended December 31, 2016, 2015 and 2014 was $2.7 million, $5.6 million and $2.3 million, respectively.
The fair value of subordinated debentures was determined by estimating projected future cash flows and discounting them at a market rate of interest. A discount of $8.3 million was recognized for subordinated debentures, which will be amortized over their contractual term. The amortization of discount for the years ended December 31, 2016, 2015 and 2014 was $275,000, $176,000 and $71,000, respectively.
