Hancock Holding Company Announces Preliminary Results For Cash Tender Offer For Whitney Bank Notes

The amount of Notes purchased in the Offer is subject to the Maximum Tender Amount and may result in proration if, at the Expiration Date, the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn exceeds the Maximum Tender Amount.  In such case, the sum of each holder's validly tendered Notes accepted for payment will be determined by multiplying the principal amount of each holder's tender by the proration factor, and rounding the product down to the nearest integral multiple of $1,000, as determined by the Bank in its sole discretion.  The Bank will not accept any tender of Notes that would result in the purchase of less than $1,000 principal amount of Notes after proration.  The proration factor will be determined by the Bank as soon as practicable after the Expiration Date and announced by press release or other permitted means.

Sandler O'Neill & Partners, L.P. is the Dealer Manager for the Offer.  Persons with questions regarding the Offer should contact Sandler O'Neill & Partners, L.P. at 212-466-7807 (collect) or 866-805-4128 (toll-free).  Requests for copies of the Offer to Purchase, the related Letter of Transmittal and other related materials should be directed to Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the Information Agent and Depositary for the Offer, at 212-430-3774 (for banks and brokers only) or 866-873-7700 (for all others and toll-free) or in writing at 65 Broadway - Suite 404, New York, NY 10006, Attention: Corporate Actions.

This press release is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell the Notes or any other securities, nor shall it constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful. The Offer is made only by and pursuant to the terms of the Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal.  None of the Bank, the dealer manager or the information agent and depositary makes any recommendations as to whether holders should tender their Notes pursuant to the Offer.  Holders must make their own decisions as to whether to tender Notes and, if so, the principal amount of Notes to tender.
