Regulation FD Disclosure


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

In responding to questions on the Company's quarterly earning conference call with analysts, officers of the Company disclosed the following additional information regarding (i) the auction rate securities the Company has announced it will offer to purchase from clients and (ii) RJ Bank's proposed purchase of a portfolio of Canadian-dollar-denominated loans from Allied Irish Bank.

Regarding the $45 million loss provision for auction rate securities which was recorded during the quarter-ended June 30, 2011, the Company anticipates that approximately $64 million of Jefferson County, Alabama Limited Obligation School Warrants auction rate securities, and approximately $28 million of Jefferson County, Alabama Sewer Revenue Refunding Warrants auction rate securities, will be tendered for repurchase. Of the total estimated loss provision, approximately one-half is associated with potential credit losses related to those specific securities.

RJ Bank has entered into an agreement with Allied Irish Bank to purchase a portfolio of commercial loans totaling approximately $650 million in commitments, of which approximately $500 million is outstanding. The bank is still awaiting approvals from its U.S. banking regulators that are required because it is acquiring foreign assets. At the time that RJ Bank consummates the purchase, it will determine the appropriate amount of the increase to its allowance for loan losses and provision expense. Based upon its current estimate, it expects this increase to be approximately $7.25 million. Of the 25 loans, eight are commercial real estate, six are commercial & industrial loans, and 11 are project finance loans in the power and infrastructure sector. The approximate pre-hedged yield to maturity of these loans is 7.40% based on the purchase price and current floating interest rates being paid by these borrowers.
