"Safe Harbor" Statement Under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995
This report, including the exhibit attached hereto, may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Congress passed the Private Securities Litigation Act of 1995 in an effort to encourage corporations to provide information about companies' anticipated future financial performance. This act provides a safe harbor for such disclosure, which protects the companies from unwarranted litigation if actual results are different from management expectations. This report, including the exhibit attached hereto, may contain forward looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act and reflects management's current views and estimates of future economic circumstances, industry conditions, company performance, and financial results. These forward looking statements are subject to a number of factors and uncertainties which could cause Renasant's, First M&F's or the combined company's actual results and experience to differ from the anticipated results and expectations expressed in such forward looking statements. Forward looking statements speak only as of the date they are made and neither Renasant nor First M&F assumes any duty to update forward looking statements. In addition to factors previously disclosed in Renasant's and First M&F's reports filed with the SEC and those identified elsewhere herein, these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements about (i) the expected benefits of the transaction between Renasant and First M&F and between Renasant Bank and Merchants and Farmers Bank, including future financial and operating results, cost savings, enhanced revenues and the expected market position of the combined company that may be realized from the transaction, and (ii) Renasant and First M&F's plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements contained herein that are not historical facts. Other statements identified by words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," "targets," "projects" or words of similar meaning generally are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of Renasant's and First M&F's management and are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond their respective control. In addition, these forward-looking statements are subject to assumptions with respect to future business strategies and decisions that are subject to change. Actual results may differ materially from those indicated or implied in the forward-looking statements.
The following risks, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from the anticipated results or other expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements: (1) the businesses of Renasant and First M&F may not be integrated successfully or the integration may be more difficult, time-consuming or costly than expected; (2) the expected growth opportunities or costs savings from the transaction may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected; (3) revenues following the transaction may be lower than expected as a result of losses of customers or other reasons; (4) deposit attrition, operating costs, customer loss and business disruption following the transaction, including difficulties in maintaining relationships with employees, may be greater than expected; (5) governmental approvals of the transaction may not be obtained on the proposed terms or expected timeframe; (6) Renasant's or First M&F's shareholders may fail to approve the transaction; (7) the terms of the proposed transaction may need to be modified to satisfy such approvals or conditions; (8) reputational risks and the reaction of the companies' customers to the transaction; (9) diversion of management time on merger related issues;
(10) changes in asset quality and credit risk; (11) inflation; (12) customer acceptance of the combined company's products and services; (13) customer borrowing, repayment, investment and deposit practices; (14) the introduction, withdrawal, success and timing of


business initiatives; (15) the impact, extent, and timing of technological changes; (16) a weakening of the economies in which the combined company will conduct operations may adversely affect its operating results; (17) the U.S. legal and regulatory framework, including those associated with the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, could adversely affect the operating results of the combined company; (18) the interest rate environment may compress margins and adversely affect net interest income; and (19) competition from other financial services companies in the company's markets could adversely affect operations. Additional factors that could cause Renasant's, First M&F's or the combined company's results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements can be found in Renasant's and First M&F's reports (such as Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K) filed with the SEC and available at the SEC's website (www.sec.gov). All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements concerning Renasant, First M&F or the proposed merger or other matters and attributable to Renasant, First M&F or any person acting on either of their behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements above. Renasant and First M&F do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether written or oral, to reflect circumstances or events that occur after the date the forward-looking statements are made.
