First NBC Bank Holding Company Announces 2013 Second Quarter Results

Taxes

The Company's tax benefit for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 was $4.2 million and $8.2 million, an increase of 42.2% and 68.3%, respectively, compared to the prior year three and six month periods. The increase is due to the Company's participation in various tax credit programs.

The Company expects to experience an effective tax rate below the statutory rate of 35% due primarily to its receipt of New Market Tax Credits, Low-Income Housing Tax Credits and Federal Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits.

Shareholders' Equity and Regulatory Capital

Shareholders' equity totaled $363.1 million at June 30, 2013, an increase of $115.0 million from year-end 2012. The increase was primarily attributable to the results of the Company's initial public offering and retained earnings over the period. At June 30, 2013, the Company and First NBC Bank exceeded all applicable regulatory guidelines, and First NBC Bank was considered "well capitalized" for purposes of the FDIC's prompt corrective action regulations. The Company's regulatory capital ratios at June 30, 2013 were as follows:

   
Tier 1 leverage  12.54%
Tier 1 risk-based capital  14.81%
Total risk-based capital  15.95%
