PROSPERITY BANCSHARES, INC. ® AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO INTERIM CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2009

(UNAUDITED)

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Prosperity Bancshares, Inc. ® (the “Company”) and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Prosperity Bank ®(the “Bank”) and Prosperity Holdings of Delaware, LLC. All significant inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated. The Company operates its business as one domestic segment.

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the statements reflect all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company on a consolidated basis, and all such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. These financial statements and the notes thereto should be read in conjunction with the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008. Operating results for the three month period ended March 31, 2009 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2009 or any other period.

2. INCOME PER COMMON SHARE

The following table illustrates the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share:

 

     Three Months Ended
March 31,
     2009    2008
     (In thousands, except per share data)

Net income available to shareholders

   $ 25,478    $ 22,938
             

Weighted average shares outstanding

     46,086      44,188

Potential dilutive shares

     53      140
             

Weighted average shares and equivalents outstanding

     46,139      44,328
             

Basic earnings per share

   $ 0.55    $ 0.52
             

Diluted earnings per share

   $ 0.55    $ 0.52
             

The incremental shares for the assumed exercise of the outstanding options were determined by application of the treasury stock method. There were no stock options exercisable during the quarter ended March 31, 2009 or 2008 that would have had an anti-dilutive effect on the above computation.

3. NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

Statements of Financial Accounting Standards

Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 141, “Business Combinations (Revised 2007).” SFAS 141R replaces SFAS 141, Business Combinations, and applies to all transactions and other events in which one entity obtains control over one or more other businesses. SFAS 141R requires an acquirer, upon initially obtaining control of another entity, to recognize the assets, liabilities and any non-controlling interest in the acquiree at fair value as of the acquisition date. Contingent consideration is required to be recognized and measured at fair value on the date of acquisition rather than at a later date when the amount of that consideration may be determinable beyond a reasonable doubt. This fair value approach replaces the cost-allocation process required under SFAS 141 whereby the cost of an acquisition was allocated to the individual assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair value. SFAS 141R requires acquirers to expense acquisition-related costs as incurred rather than allocating such costs to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, as was previously the case under SFAS 141. Under SFAS 141R, the requirements of SFAS 146, “Accounting for Costs

Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities,” would have to be met in order to accrue for a restructuring plan in purchase accounting. Pre-acquisition contingencies are to be recognized at fair value, unless it is a non-contractual contingency that is not likely to materialize, in which case, nothing should be recognized in purchase accounting and, instead, that contingency would be subject to the probable and estimable recognition criteria of SFAS 5, “Accounting for Contingencies.” SFAS 141R was effective for the Company on January 1, 2009. The adoption of SFAS 141R will have a significant impact on the Company’s accounting for business combinations closing on or after January 1, 2009.

In April 2009, the FASB issued three Final Staff Positions (FSPs) to provide additional guidance and disclosures regarding fair value measurements and impairments of securities:

FSP FAS 157-4. “Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for the Asset or Liability Have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly”, provides guidance for estimating fair value when the volume and level of activity for an asset or liability have significantly decreased. The Company does not expect that FSP FAS 157-4 will have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

FSP FAS 115-2 and FAS 124-2, Recognition and Presentation of Other-Than-Temporary Impairments, amends the other-than-temporary impairment guidance for debt securities to make the guidance more operational and to improve the presentation and disclosure of other-than-temporary impairments on debt and equity securities in financial statements. The Company does not expect that FSP FAS 115-2 and FAS 124-2 will have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

FSP FAS 107-1 and APB 28-1, Interim Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments, requires disclosure about fair value of financial instruments for interim reporting periods of publicly traded companies as well as in annual financial statements. The Company will review the requirements of FSP FAS 107-1 and comply with its requirements.

These three FSPs are effective for interim and annual periods ending after June 15, 2009.

4. FAIR VALUE DISCLOSURES

Effective January 1, 2008, the Company adopted SFAS 157, Fair Value Measurements, which defines fair value, addresses aspects of the expanding application of fair value accounting and establishes a consistent framework for measuring fair value. Fair values represent the estimated price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability, otherwise knows as an “exit price”.

Fair Value Hierarchy

SFAS 157 specifies a hierarchy of valuation techniques based on whether the inputs to those valuation techniques are observable or unobservable. In accordance with SFAS 157, these inputs are summarized in the three broad levels listed below:

 

   

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Level 1 assets include U.S. Treasury securities that are highly liquid and are actively traded in over-the-counter markets.

 

   

Level 2 – Other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities) or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities. Level 2 assets include U.S. government and agency mortgage-backed debt securities, corporate securities, municipal bonds and CRA funds.

 

   

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities. Level 3 assets and liabilities include financial instruments whose value is determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, or similar techniques, as well as instruments for which the determination of fair values requires significant management judgment or estimation.

MARCH 31, 2009

(UNAUDITED)

 

In determining the appropriate levels, the Company performed a detailed analysis of the assets and liabilities that are subject to SFAS 157.

The following table presents fair value measurements as of March 31, 2009:

 

     Level 1    Level 2    Level 3    Total
     (Dollars in thousands)

Measured on a recurring basis:

           

Interest bearing deposits in financial institutions

   $ —      $ —      $ —      $ —  

Available for sale securities (at fair value)

     —        706,052      —        706,052
                           

TOTAL

   $ —      $ 706,052    $ —      $ 706,052
                           

Certain assets and liabilities are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis; that is, the instruments are not measured at fair value on an ongoing basis but are subject to fair value adjustments in certain circumstances (for example, when there is evidence of impairment). These instruments include other real estate owned, repossessed assets and impaired loans per SFAS 114, Accounting by Creditors for Impairment of a Loan—an amendment of FASB Statements No. 5 and 15. For the three months ended March 31, 2009, the Company had additions to impaired loans of $8.5 million and additions to other real estate owned of $6.5 million, which were outstanding March 31, 2009. Remaining financial assets and financial liabilities measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis that were recorded in 2009 and remained outstanding at March 31, 2009 were not significant.

5. GOODWILL AND CORE DEPOSIT INTANGIBLES

Changes in the carrying amount of the Company’s goodwill and core deposit intangibles for three months ended March 31, 2009 were as follows:

 

     Goodwill     Core
Deposit
Intangibles
 
     (Dollars in thousands)  

Balance as of December 31, 2008

   $ 874,654     $ 38,196  

Amortization

     —         (2,664 )

Acquisition of Banco Popular branches

     50       —    

Acquisition of 1st Choice Bancorp, Inc

     7       —    

Acquisition of Franklin Bank

     (3 )     7,264  
                

Balance as of March 31, 2009

   $ 874,708     $ 42,796  
                

Purchase accounting adjustments to prior year acquisitions were made to adjust deferred tax asset and liability balances. Goodwill is recorded on the acquisition date of each entity. The Company may record subsequent adjustments to goodwill for amounts undeterminable at acquisition date, such as deferred taxes and real estate valuations, and therefore the goodwill amounts reflected in the table above may change accordingly. The Company initially records the total premium paid on acquisitions as goodwill. After finalizing the valuation, core deposit intangibles are identified and reclassified from goodwill to core deposit intangibles on the balance sheet. This reclassification has no effect on total assets, liabilities, shareholders’ equity, net income or cash flows. Management performs an evaluation annually, and more frequently if a triggering event occurs, of whether any impairment of the goodwill and other intangibles has occurred. If any such impairment is determined, a write down is recorded. As of March 31, 2009, there were no impairments recorded on goodwill.

MARCH 31, 2009

(UNAUDITED)

During the quarter ended March 31, 2009, the Company completed the valuation of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the Franklin Bank acquisition and allocated $7.3 million to core deposit intangibles and $7.2 million to certificates of deposit. Both amounts had previously been reflected in goodwill as of December 31, 2008 pending the completed valuations.

Core deposit intangibles are amortized on an accelerated basis over their estimated lives, which the Company believes is between 8 and 10 years. Gross core deposit intangibles outstanding were $76.7 million and $69.5 million at March 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008, respectively. Net core deposit intangibles outstanding were $42.8 million and $38.2 million at the same dates, respectively. Amortization expense related to intangible assets totaled $2.7 million and $2.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively. The increase in amortization expense was primarily due to the core deposit intangibles from the acquisition of Franklin Bank. The estimated aggregate future amortization expense for intangible assets remaining as of March 31, 2009 is as follows (dollars in thousands):

 

Remaining 2009

6. STOCK BASED COMPENSATION

At March 31, 2009, the Company had three stock-based employee compensation plans adopted by the Company and five stock option plans assumed in connection with acquisitions under which no additional options will be granted. Two of the three plans adopted by the Company have expired and therefore no additional awards may be issued under the plans. Prior to 2003, the Company accounted for those plans under the recognition and measurement provisions of APB Opinion No. 25, Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees, and related Interpretations. Effective January 1, 2003, the Company prospectively adopted the fair value recognition provisions of SFAS No. 123, Accounting for Stack-Based Compensation. The Company accounts for stock-based employee compensation plans using the fair value-based method of accounting in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123R, Share-Based Payment (Revised 2004) (“SFAS 123R”). SFAS 123R was effective for companies in 2006, however, the Company had been recognizing compensation expense since January 1, 2003. The Company’s results of operations reflect compensation expense for all employee stock-based compensation, including the unvested portion of stock options granted prior to 2003. SFAS No. 123R requires that management make assumptions including stock price volatility and employee turnover that are utilized to measure compensation expense. The fair value of stock options granted is estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The Company recognized $326,000 and $248,000 in stock-based compensation expense for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively. There was approximately $79,000 and $36,000 of income tax benefit recorded for the stock-based compensation expense for the same periods.

During 2004, the Company’s Board of Directors and shareholders approved the Prosperity Bancshares, Inc. 2004 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2004 Plan”). The Company has granted shares (“restricted stock”) to certain directors and associates under the 2004 Plan. The awardee is not entitled to the shares until they vest, which is generally over a 1 to 5 year period, but the awardee is entitled to receive dividends on and vote the shares prior to vesting. The shares granted do not have a cost to the awardee and the only requirement of vesting is continued service to the Company. Compensation cost related to restricted stock is calculated based on the fair value of the shares at the date of grant. If the awardee leaves the Company before the shares vest, the unvested shares are forfeited. As of March 31, 2009, there were 59,475 shares of restricted stock outstanding with a weighted average grant date fair value of $31.52.

Stock options are issued at the current market price on the date of the grant, subject to a pre-determined vesting period with a contractual term of 10 years. Options assumed in connection with acquisitions also have a contractual term of 10 years from date of original issuance under the original plan. The fair value of stock options granted is estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. Stock-based compensation expense is recognized ratably over the requisite service period for all awards.

The fair value of options was estimated using an option-pricing model with the following weighted average assumptions as of the dates indicated:

7. CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS AND OFF-BALANCE SHEET ITEMS

Contractual Obligations

The following table summarizes the Company’s contractual obligations and other commitments to make future payments as of March 31, 2009 (other than deposit obligations). The payments do not include pre-payment options that may be available to the Company. The Company’s future cash payments associated with its contractual obligations pursuant to its junior subordinated debentures, FHLB notes payable and operating leases as of March 31, 2009 are summarized below. Payments for junior subordinated debentures include interest of $96.4 million that will be paid over the future periods. The future interest payments were calculated using the current rate in effect at March 31, 2009.

OVERVIEW

The Company, a Texas corporation, was formed in 1983 as a vehicle to acquire the former Allied First Bank in Edna, Texas which was chartered in 1949 as The First National Bank of Edna. The Company is a registered financial holding company that derives substantially all of its revenues and income from the operation of its bank subsidiary, Prosperity Bank® (“Prosperity Bank®” or the “Bank”). The Bank provides a wide array of financial products and services to small and medium-sized businesses and consumers. As of March 31, 2009, the Bank operated one hundred fifty-eight (158) full-service banking locations; with fifty-one (51) in the Greater Houston Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Area (“CMSA”), twenty-seven (27) in the South Texas area including Corpus Christi and Victoria, thirty-six (36) in the Central Texas area including Austin and Bryan/College Station,, twenty (20) in East Texas and twenty-four (24) in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area. The Greater Houston CMSA includes Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Montgomery, San Jacinto and Waller counties. The Company's headquarters are located at Prosperity Bank Plaza, 4295 San Felipe in Houston, Texas and its telephone number is (281) 269-7199. The Company’s website address is www.prosperitybanktx.com. Information contained on the Company’s website is not incorporated by reference into this quarterly report on Form 10-Q and is not part of this or any other report.

The Company generates the majority of its revenues from interest income on loans, service charges on customer accounts and income from investment in securities. The revenues are partially offset by interest expense paid on deposits and other borrowings and non-interest expenses such as administrative, occupancy and general operating expenses. Net interest income is the difference between interest income on earning assets such as loans and securities and interest expense on liabilities such as deposits and borrowings which are used to fund those assets. The level of interest rates and the volume and mix of earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities impact net interest income and margin.

Three principal components of the Company’s growth strategy are internal growth, stringent cost control practices and strategic merger transactions. The Company focuses on continual internal growth. Each banking center is operated as a separate profit center, maintaining separate data with respect to its net interest income, efficiency ratio, deposit growth, loan growth and overall profitability. Banking center presidents and managers are accountable for performance in these areas and compensated accordingly. The Company also focuses on maintaining stringent cost control practices and policies. The Company has invested significantly in the infrastructure required to centralize many of its critical operations, such as data processing and loan processing. Management believes that this centralized infrastructure can accommodate substantial additional growth while enabling the Company to minimize operational costs through certain economies of scale. The Company also intends to continue to seek expansion opportunities. On January 10, 2008, the Company purchased six (6) branches of Banco Popular North America. On June 1, 2008 the Company purchased 1st Choice Bancorp, Inc. (the “1st Choice acquisition”) which added one (1) banking center after consolidation. On November 7, 2008, the Bank assumed approximately $3.6 billion of deposits and acquired certain assets from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”), acting in its capacity as receiver for Franklin Bank (the “Franklin acquisition” or the “Franklin Bank acquisition”). The transaction added thirty-five (35) banking centers after consolidations with existing Prosperity Bank locations.

Total assets were $8.80 billion at March 31, 2009 compared with $9.07 billion at December 31, 2008, a decrease of $273.2 million or 3.0%. Total loans were $3.50 billion at March 31, 2009 compared with $3.57 billion at December 31,

2008, a decrease of $65.8 million or 1.8%. Total deposits were $7.21 billion at March 31, 2009 compared with $7.30 billion at December 31, 2008, a decrease of $96.4 million or 1.3%. Shareholders’ equity increased $25.4 million or 2.0%, to $1.28 billion at March 31, 2009 compared with $1.26 billion at December 31, 2008.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The Company’s accounting policies are integral to understanding the financial results reported. Accounting policies are described in detail in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008. The Company believes that of its significant accounting policies, the following may involve a higher degree of judgment and complexity:

Allowance for Credit Losses—The allowance for credit losses is a reserve established through charges to earnings in the form of a provision for credit losses. Management has established an allowance for credit losses which it believes is adequate for estimated losses in the Company’s loan portfolio. Based on an evaluation of the loan portfolio, management presents a monthly review of the allowance for credit losses to the Bank’s Board of Directors, indicating any change in the allowance since the last review and any recommendations as to adjustments in the allowance. In making its evaluation, management considers factors such as historical loan loss experience, industry diversification of the Company’s commercial loan portfolio, the amount of nonperforming assets and related collateral, the volume, growth and composition of the Company’s loan portfolio, current economic changes that may affect the borrower’s ability to pay and the value of collateral, the evaluation of the Company’s loan portfolio through its internal loan review process and other relevant factors. Portions of the allowance may be allocated for specific credits; however, the entire allowance is available for any credit that, in management’s judgment, should be charged off. Charge-offs occur when loans are deemed to be uncollectible. The allowance for credit losses includes allowance allocations calculated in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 114, Accounting by Creditors for Impairment of a Loan, as amended by SFAS 118, Accounting by Creditors for Impairment of a Loan-Income Recognition and Disclosures, and allowance allocations determined in accordance with SFAS No. 5, Accounting for Contingencies.

Goodwill and Intangible Assets—Goodwill and intangible assets that have indefinite useful lives are subject to at least an annual impairment test and more frequently if circumstances indicate their value may not be recoverable. Goodwill is tested for impairment using a two-step process that begins with an estimation of the fair value of each of the Company’s reporting units compared with its carrying value. If the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of a reporting unit, a second test is completed comparing the implied fair value of the reporting unit’s goodwill to its carrying value to measure the amount of impairment. Intangible assets that are not amortized will be tested for impairment at least annually by comparing the fair values of those assets to their carrying values. Other identifiable intangible assets that are subject to amortization are amortized on an accelerated basis over the years expected to be benefited. These amortizable intangible assets are reviewed for impairment if circumstances indicate their value may not be recoverable based on a comparison of fair value to carrying value. Based on the Company’s annual goodwill impairment test as of September 30, 2008 and in the absence of any triggering events occurring during the quarter, management does not believe any of its goodwill is impaired as of March 31, 2009. While the Company believes no impairment existed at March 31, 2009 under accounting standards applicable at that date, different conditions or assumptions, or changes in cash flows or profitability, if significantly negative or unfavorable, could have a material adverse effect on the outcome of the Company’s impairment evaluation and financial condition or future results of operations.

Stock-Based Compensation—The Company accounts for stock-based employee compensation plans using the fair value-based method of accounting in accordance with SFAS No. 123R, Share-Based Payment (Revised 2004) (“SFAS 123R”). SFAS 123R was effective for companies in 2006, however, the Company had been recognizing compensation expense since January 1, 2003. The Company’s results of operations reflect compensation expense for all employee stock-based compensation, including the unvested portion of stock options granted prior to 2003. SFAS No. 123R requires that management make assumptions including stock price volatility and employee turnover that are utilized to measure compensation expense. The fair value of stock options granted is estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. This model requires the input of subjective assumptions.

Valuation of Securities—The Company’s available for sale securities portfolio is reported at fair value. When the fair value of a security is below its amortized cost, and depending on the length of time the condition exists and the extent the fair value is below amortized cost, additional analysis is performed to determine whether an impairment exists. Available for sale and held to maturity securities are analyzed quarterly for possible other-than-temporary impairment. The analysis considers the financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer, as well as the value of any security the Company may have in the investment. Often, the information available to conduct these assessments is limited and rapidly changing, making estimates of fair value subject to judgment. If actual information or conditions are different than estimated, the extent of the impairment of the security may be different than previously estimated, which could have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations and financial condition.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Net income available to shareholders was $25.5 million ($0.55 per common share on a diluted basis) for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared with $22.9 million ($0.52 per common share on a diluted basis) for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, an increase of $2.5 million or 11.1%. The Company posted returns on average common equity of 8.02% and 8.02%, returns on average assets of 1.15% and 1.43% and efficiency ratios of 49.47% and 45.03% for the quarters ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively. The efficiency ratio is calculated by dividing total noninterest expense (excluding credit loss provisions) by net interest income plus noninterest income (excluding net gains and losses on the sale of securities and assets and impairment write-down on securities). Additionally, taxes are not part of this calculation.

Net Interest Income

The Company’s net interest income is affected by changes in the amount and mix of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, referred to as a “volume change.” It is also affected by changes in yields earned on interest-earning assets and rates paid on interest-bearing deposits and other borrowed funds, referred to as a “rate change.”

Net interest income before the provision for credit losses was $74.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared with $52.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, an increase of $22.1 million or 42.5%. Net interest income increased primarily as a result of a $2.37 billion or 45.2% increase in average interest-earning assets to $7.63 billion for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared with $5.25 billion for the quarter ended March 31, 2008. The increase in interest-earning assets was primarily due to the Franklin acquisition.

The average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities decreased 110 basis points from 3.21% for the quarter ended March 31, 2008 to 2.11% for the quarter ended March 31, 2009, while the average yield on interest-earning assets decreased 84 basis points from 6.45% for the quarter ended March 31, 2008 compared with 5.61% for the quarter ended March 31, 2009. The average volume of interest-bearing liabilities increased $1.99 billion and the average volume of interest-earning assets increased $2.37 billion for the same period. The net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis decreased five basis points from 4.03% for the quarter ended March 31, 2008 compared with 3.98% for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.

Provision for Credit Losses

Management actively monitors the Company’s asset quality and provides specific loss provisions when necessary. Provisions for credit losses are charged to income to bring the total allowance for credit losses to a level deemed appropriate by management of the Company based on such factors as historical credit loss experience, industry diversification of the commercial loan portfolio, the amount of nonperforming loans and related collateral, the volume growth and composition of the loan portfolio, current economic conditions that may affect the borrower’s ability to pay and the value of collateral, the evaluation of the loan portfolio through the internal loan review function and other relevant factors.

Loans are charged-off against the allowance for credit losses when appropriate. Although management believes it uses the best information available to make determinations with respect to the provision for credit losses, future adjustments may be necessary if economic conditions differ from the assumptions used in making the initial determinations.

The Company made a $6.1 million and $1.2 million provision for credit losses for the quarters ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively. The increase in the provision for credit losses was primarily due to increased charge-offs for the first quarter of 2009 resulting from a general weakening of the economy in the Company’s market areas. For the quarter ended March 31, 2009, net charge-offs were $3.9 million compared with net charge-offs of $1.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2008.

Noninterest Income

The Company’s primary sources of recurring noninterest income are service charges on deposit accounts and other banking service related fees. Noninterest income does not include loan origination fees which are recognized over the life of the related loan as an adjustment to yield using the interest method. Banking related service fees include check cashing fees, official check fees, safe deposit box rent and currency handling fees. Noninterest income totaled $15.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009 compared with $12.7 million for the same period in 2008, an increase of $2.3 million or 18.4%. The increase was primarily due to an increase in insufficient funds charges and customer service charges which resulted from an increase in the number of accounts due to the Franklin and 1st Choice acquisitions. As of March 31, 2009, approximately 108,000 deposit accounts were attributed to these two acquisitions.

Table of Contents

Trust and investment income increased $173,000 to $253,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared with $80,000 for the same quarter of 2008. The increase was due to the acquisition of the trust department acquired in the Franklin acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2008. The trust department was subsequently sold at the end of the first quarter of 2009. Other noninterest income increased $664,000 or 104.9% to $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009 compared with $633,000 for the same period in 2008. The increase was primarily due to loan servicing income paid by the FDIC related to loans of Franklin Bank that the Bank serviced on behalf of the FDIC but did not purchase. The loan servicing agreement ended in April 2009.

The following table presents, for the periods indicated, the major categories of noninterest income:

Noninterest expense totaled $44.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared with $29.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, an increase of $14.9 million or 51.2%. This increase was principally due to increases in salaries and employee benefits, regulatory assessments and FDIC insurance, net occupancy expense and other expense.

(1)   Includes stock-based compensation expense of $326,000 and $248,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

Salaries and employee benefit expenses were $22.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared with $16.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, an increase of $6.5 million or 40.4%. The increase was principally due to the Franklin acquisition and annual merit increases. The number of full-time equivalent (“FTE”) associates employed by the Company increased from 1,374 at March 31, 2008 compared to 1,684 at March 31, 2009.

Regulatory assessments and FDIC insurance increased $2.7 million, or 1,051.0%, to $3.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared with $259,000 during the same period in 2008. The increase was due to higher rates charged by the FDIC for deposit insurance and an increase in deposits due to the Franklin acquisition. In addition to the increase in the regular FDIC assessment rates, the FDIC has proposed an emergency special assessment of 20 basis points on deposits as of June 30, 2009. However legislation has been proposed in Congress that could lower the special assessment to 10 basis points if the FDIC’s borrowing authority is increased. Further, the special assessment could drop below 10 basis points if the recently proposed surcharge on longer-term guaranteed debt issued under the FDIC's Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program is approved. The special assessment will be payable on September 30, 2009.

Net occupancy and equipment expense increased $1.2 million, or 41.6%, from $2.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2008 compared with $4.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2009. The increase was primarily related to the additional banking centers acquired in connection with the Franklin and 1st Choice acquisitions.

Other expense increased $2.4 million from $1.6 million, or 151.1%, for the three months ended March 31, 2008 to $3.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009. The increase was primarily due to increased general operating expenses related to the banking centers acquired in the Franklin and 1st Choice acquisitions.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense increased $2.0 million to $13.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared with $11.4 million for the same period in 2008. The increase was primarily attributable to higher pretax net earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared with the same period in 2008. The Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2009 was 34.6% compared with 33.3% for the same period in 2008.

Table of Contents

The Company generally places a loan on nonaccrual status and ceases accruing interest when the payment of principal or interest is delinquent for 90 days, or earlier in some cases, unless the loan is in the process of collection and the underlying collateral fully supports the carrying value of the loan. The Company generally charges off loans before attaining nonaccrual status.

Allowance for Credit Losses

Management actively monitors the Company’s asset quality and provides specific loss allowances when necessary. The allowance for credit losses is a reserve established through charges to earnings in the form of a provision for credit losses. Loans are charged off against the allowance for credit losses when appropriate. Although management believes it uses the best information available to make determinations with respect to the allowance for credit losses, future adjustments may be necessary if economic conditions differ from the assumptions used in making the initial determinations. As of March 31, 2009, the allowance for credit losses amounted to $39.2 million or 1.12% of total loans compared with $37.0 million or 1.04% of total loans at December 31, 2008.

Liquidity

Liquidity involves the Company’s ability to raise funds to support asset growth or reduce assets to meet deposit withdrawals and other payment obligations, to maintain reserve requirements and otherwise to operate the Company on an ongoing basis. The Company’s largest source of funds is deposits and its largest use of funds is loans. The Company does not expect a change in the source or use of its funds in the future. Although access to purchased funds from correspondent banks is available and has been utilized on occasion to take advantage of investment opportunities, the Company does not generally rely on these external funding sources. The cash and federal funds sold position, supplemented by amortizing investment and loan portfolios, has generally created an adequate liquidity position.

As of March 31, 2009, the Company had outstanding $564.6 million in commitments to extend credit and $15.2 million in commitments associated with outstanding standby letters of credit. Since commitments associated with letters of credit and commitments to extend credit may expire unused, the total outstanding may not necessarily reflect the actual future cash funding requirements.

Table of Contents

The Company has no exposure to future cash requirements associated with known uncertainties or capital expenditures of a material nature.

Asset liquidity is provided by cash and assets which are readily marketable or which will mature in the near future. As of March 31, 2009, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $163.9 million compared with $228.6 million at December 31, 2008, a decrease of $64.8 million. The decrease is primarily due to net repayments of other borrowings of $200.0 million, a decrease in deposits of $101.6 million, purchases of securities of $124.8 million and purchases of premises and equipment of $30.2 million offset by proceeds from the maturities and repayments of securities of $303.9 million, a decrease in loans of $51.1 million, net earnings of $25.5 million and a decrease in other assets of $13.3 million.

Contractual Obligations

The following table summarizes the Company’s contractual obligations and other commitments to make future payments as of March 31, 2009 (other than deposit obligations).

The Company’s future cash payments associated with its contractual obligations pursuant to its junior subordinated debentures, FHLB notes payable and operating leases as of March 31, 2009 are summarized below. Payments for junior subordinated debentures include interest of $96.4 million that will be paid over the future periods. The future interest payments were calculated using the current rate in effect at March 31, 2009. With respect to floating interest rates, the payments were determined based on the 3-month LIBOR in effect at March 31, 2009. The current principal balance of the junior subordinated debentures at March 31, 2009 was $92.3 million. Payments for FHLB notes payable include interest of $6.2 million that will be paid over the future periods.

Off-Balance Sheet Items

In the normal course of business, the Company enters into various transactions, which, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, are not included in its consolidated balance sheets. The Company enters into these transactions to meet the financing needs of its customers. These transactions include commitments to extend credit and standby letters of credit, which involve, to varying degrees, elements of credit risk and interest rate risk in excess of the amounts recognized in the consolidated balance sheets.

The Company’s commitments associated with outstanding standby letters of credit and commitments to extend credit as of March 31, 2009 are summarized below. Since commitments associated with letters of credit and commitments to extend credit may expire unused, the amounts shown do not necessarily reflect the actual future cash funding requirements:

Capital Resources

Total shareholders’ equity was $1.28 billion at March 31, 2009 compared with $1.26 billion at December 31, 2008, an increase of $25.4 million or 2.0%. The increase was due primarily to net earnings of $25.5 million and an increase in the change in unrealized gain on available for sale securities of $5.6 million which was partially offset by dividends paid of $6.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009.
