Operating earnings and adjusted net interest margin are considered “non-GAAP” financial measures. More information regarding these measurements and a reconciliation to the comparable GAAP measurements are provided under the heading Non-GAAP Financial Measures below. In previous earnings releases and periodic reports, we referred to adjusted net interest margin as core net interest margin.

“Excellent loan growth, record revenue totals and continued credit quality improvements highlight this quarter’s performance,” said Ray Davis, president and CEO of Umpqua Holdings Corporation. “As we enter 2013, we remain focused on delivering shareholder value through continued loan growth, diversification of our revenue streams in light of the low interest rate environment, and deployment of excess capital.”
