Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition

On October 25, 2012, United Bankshares, Inc. ("United") announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2012. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report. The press release is being furnished under Item 2.02 of this Form 8-K.



Item 8.01. Other Events

On October 24, 2012, United and its wholly owned subsidiary, United Bank, Inc. of West Virginia, agreed to settle two putative class actions. The class actions allege that United Bank improperly posted, processed, and paid consumer checking account debit card transactions, which allegedly resulted in the assessment of improper overdraft fees. These cases are virtually identical to cases filed against more than 70 other United States banks over the last three years.

The first case has been consolidated, with similar cases against a myriad of other banks, into a federal multidistrict litigation pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida that is known as In re Checking Account Overdraft Litigation, Case No. 1:09-md-02036-JLK. The second case is pending in the Circuit Court of Jackson County, West Virginia. Without admitting liability or any wrongdoing and to avoid further litigation expense, United Bankshares, Inc. and United Bank, Inc. of West Virginia agreed to settle these cases in exchange for a payment of $3.3 million and an agreement to pay certain settlement-related expenses.

The settlement is subject to court approval.
