UMB Financial Recognized As Top Performer By Sandler O’Neill And Partners

UMB Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: UMBF) announces it has been recognized by Sandler O’Neill and Partners as a top performer on the “2012 Bank and Thrift Sm-All Stars” report, marking the second time the bank has been recognized with the distinction.

To determine the annual report, Sandler O’Neill and Partners selected the 25 top performers out of 461 publicly traded banks and thrifts in the U.S. with a market capitalization of less than $2 billion. Selections are made based on evaluation criteria measuring growth, profitability, credit quality and capital strength. According to Sandler O’Neill and Partners, the class of 2012 delivered bottom line results that were markedly better than the industry as a whole.

“We were honored to receive recognition on the All Stars list in 2009, and we are pleased to once again be listed among the top performing banks in this category,” said Mariner Kemper, Chairman and CEO of UMB. “We are in a position to be recognized as a top performer because we remain true to our time-tested business model, which allows us to be a stable financial partner our customers can confidently trust today and in the future.”

First published in 2004, Sandler’s stated purpose for the report is to “provide investors with a narrow list from which to uncover the next crop of leading small-mid cap banks and thrifts, and most important, expose them before they are discovered by the rest of the world.” Sandler O’Neill and Partners is a full-service investment banking firm dedicated to providing comprehensive, innovative advisory and transaction execution services to the financial industry.
