This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial disclosures for tangible common equity; pre-tax earnings before net credit costs, securities gains and losses, acquisition and integration costs, and debt termination expense, which we refer to as "adjusted earnings before income taxes"; and efficiency ratios adjusted to exclude FDIC loss sharing income, securities gains and losses, OREO expenses, acquisition and integration costs, and debt termination expense. The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operational performance and to enhance investors' overall understanding of such financial performance. Given the use of tangible common equity amounts and ratios is prevalent among banking regulators, investors and analysts, we disclose our tangible common equity ratio in addition to equity-to-assets ratio. Also, as analysts and investors view adjusted earnings before income taxes as an indicator of the Company's ability to absorb credit losses, we disclose this amount in addition to pre-tax earnings. We disclose the adjusted efficiency ratio as it shows the trend in recurring overhead-related noninterest expense relative to recurring net revenues. Please refer to the tables at the end of this release for a presentation of performance ratios in accordance with GAAP and a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the GAAP financial measures.
