Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains certain "forward-looking statements" that are subject to risks and uncertainties. These statements include, but are not limited to, descriptions of Northrim BanCorp's and Alaska Pacific Bancshares' financial condition, results of operations, asset and credit quality trends and profitability and statements about the expected timing, completion, financial benefits and other effects of the proposed merger. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, regarding the financial position, business strategy and respective management's plans and objectives for future operations of each of Northrim BanCorp and Alaska Pacific Bancshares are forward-looking statements. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which reflect management's views only as of the date hereof. When used in this report, the words "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "expect," and "intend" and words or phrases of similar meaning, as they relate to Northrim BanCorp, Northrim BanCorp management, Alaska Pacific Bancshares, or Alaska Pacific Bancshares management are intended to help identify forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Although we believe that management's respective expectations as reflected in forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot assure readers that those expectations will prove to be correct. Forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially and adversely from expectations as indicated in the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include: expected cost savings, synergies and other


financial benefits from the proposed merger might not be realized within the expected time frames and costs or difficulties relating to integration matters might be greater than expected; the requisite shareholder and regulatory approvals for the proposed merger might not be obtained; and the ability of Northrim BanCorp and Alaska Pacific Bancshares to execute their respective business plans (including the proposed merger). Further, actual results may be affected by the ability to compete on price and other factors with other financial institutions; customer acceptance of new products and services; the regulatory environment in which we operate; and general trends in the local, regional and national banking industry and economy as those factors relate to the cost of funds and return on assets. In addition, there are risks inherent in the banking industry relating to collectibility of loans and changes in interest rates. Many of these risks, as well as other risks that may have a material adverse impact on our operations and business, are identified in other filings of Northrim BanCorp and Alaska Pacific Bancshares made with the SEC. However, you should be aware that these factors are not an exhaustive list, and you should not assume these are the only factors that may cause our actual results to differ from our expectations. Northrim BanCorp and Alaska Pacific Bancshares undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement to reflect new information, events, conditions or otherwise.
