Tangible book value per share, the ratio of tangible equity to tangible assets, and the efficiency ratio are not financial measures recognized
under GAAP and, therefore, are considered non-GAAP financial measures. Our management, banking regulators, many financial analysts and
other investors use these non-GAAP financial measures to compare the capital adequacy of banking organizations with significant amounts of
preferred equity and/or goodwill or other intangible assets, which typically stem from the use of the purchase accounting method of accounting
for mergers and acquisitions. Tangible equity, tangible assets, tangible book value per share or related measures should not be considered in
isolation or as a substitute for total stockholders’ equity, total assets, book value per share or any other measure calculated in accordance with
GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate tangible equity, tangible assets, tangible book value per share and any other related
measures may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names. The following table reconciles, as of the dates set
forth below, stockholders’ equity (on a GAAP basis) to tangible equity and total assets (on a GAAP basis) to tangible assets and calculates our
tangible book value per share.
