Forward Looking Statements Forward - Looking Statements This presentation contains, and future oral and written statements by us and our management may contain, forward - looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These forward - looking statements represent plans, estimates, objectives, goals, guidelines, expectations, intentions, projections, and statements of our beliefs concerning future events, bu siness plans, objectives, expected operating results, and the assumptions upon which those statements are based. Forward - looking statements include without limitat ion, any statement that may predict, forecast, indicate or imply future results, performance or achievements, and are typically identified with words suc h a s “may,” “could,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “aim,” “intend,” “plan,” or words or phases of similar meaning. We ca uti on that the forward - looking statements are based largely on our expectations and are subject to a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties tha t a re subject to change based on factors which are, in many instances, beyond our control. Such forward - looking statements are based on various assumptions (some of which may be beyond our control) and are subject to risks and uncertainties, which change overtime, and other factors which could cause actual result s t o differ materially from those currently anticipated. New risks and uncertainties may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict their occurre nce or how they will affect us. If one or more of the factors affecting our forward - looking information and statements proves incorrect, then our actual results, performa nce or achievements could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, forward - looking information and statements contained in this presentation. Th erefore, we caution you not to place undue reliance on our forward - looking information and statements. We disclaim any duty to revise or update the forward - looking s tatements, whether written or oral, to reflect actual results or changes in the factors affecting the forward - looking statements, except as specifically required by law. Industry Information This presentation includes statistical and other industry and market data that we obtained from government reports and other thi rd - party sources. Our internal data, estimates, and forecasts are based on information obtained from government reports, trade and business organizations and othe r c ontacts in the markets in which we operate and our management’s understanding of industry conditions. Although we believe that this information (including th e i ndustry publications and third party research, surveys, and studies) is accurate and reliable, we have not independently verified such information. In addit ion , estimates, forecasts and assumptions are necessarily subject to a high degree of uncertainty and risk due to a variety of factors. Finally, forward - looking informati on obtained from these sources is subject to the same qualifications and the additional uncertainties regarding the other forward - looking statements in this presentation . Non - GAAP Financial Measures We present tangible shareholders’ equity to tangible assets and efficiency ratios to help us describe our operating performance. Our presentation of these non - GAAP measures is intended as a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance wi th, U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These non - GAAP measures should not be considered as an alternative to performance measures deriv ed in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Our presentation of these non - GAAP measures should not be construed to imply that our future results will be unaffected by these items. See the appendix to this presentation for a reconciliation of these non - GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures . 2
