Diluted Earnings per Class A Common Share increased to $0.46 for the quarter. ROA and ROE were both solid during the quarter at 1.16% and 7.17%, respectively. As a result of Republic’s continued strong performance, the Company announced a 7% increase to its regular quarterly cash dividend payable in July. This represents the 12 th consecutive year Republic has raised dividend payouts to its shareholders.

Steve Trager, Republic’s President and CEO, commented: “We are pleased with the second quarter results as we continue to experience solid organic loan growth while maintaining our conservative lending standards and strong capital base. Also, during the second quarter, we made great progress in integrating our recent acquisition of the loans and deposits of Tennessee Commerce Bank (“TCB”) and look forward to growing our customer base in the Nashville, Tennessee market. Not only was the TCB acquisition an immediate positive impact to our strong capital base the day we acquired it, it has also allowed the Company to gain valuable experience and knowledge that we look forward to utilizing in future acquisitions.”

Republic Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: RBCAA), headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, is the holding company for Republic Bank & Trust Company (“RB&T”) and Republic Bank.

Results of Operations for the Second Quarter of 2012 Compared to the Second Quarter of 2011

Traditional Banking and Mortgage Banking (collectively “Core Banking”)

Net income from Core Banking decreased slightly from $7.4 million during the second quarter of 2011 to $7.2 million during the second quarter of 2012. The decrease in Core Bank earnings was primarily the result of the pre-conversion operational costs associated with the TCB acquisition during the second quarter of 2012 and a $1.9 million security gain that the Company recorded during the second quarter of 2011. The Core Bank’s operations achieved positive results during the second quarter of 2012 from increased net interest income driven by solid year-over-year loan growth.
