Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

The following discussion and analysis presents factors that the Company believes are relevant to an assessment and understanding of the Company's financial position and results of operations for the three years ended December 31, 2013. This discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto and the selected consolidated financial data included herein.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

SUMMARY

BancFirst Corporation's net income for 2013 was $54.3 million, or $3.49 per diluted share, compared to $51.9 million, or $3.36 per diluted share for 2012 and $45.6 million, or $2.93 per diluted share for 2011.

In 2013, net interest income was $163.5 million, compared to $164.8 million in 2012 and $156.9 million in 2011. The Company's net interest margin was 3.04% for 2013, compared to 3.13% for 2012 and 3.20% for 2011, as interest rates have remained at historically low levels. Provision for loan losses was $1.3 million in 2013 compared to $3.1 million in 2012 and $4.5 million in 2011. The decrease was primarily due to reductions in adversely graded loans. Net charge-offs to average loans for 2013 was 0.03%, compared to 0.07% for 2012 and 0.09% for 2011. Noninterest income totaled $90.2 million in 2013 compared to $87.7 million in 2012 and $77.0 million in 2011. Noninterest expense was $171.6 million in 2013 compared to $170.4 million in 2012 and $158.6 million in 2011.

The Company's assets at year end 2013 totaled $6.0 billion, compared to $6.0 billion at December 31, 2012 and $5.6 billion at December 31, 2011. Loans totaled $3.4 billion versus $3.2 billion for 2012 and $3.0 billion for 2011. Total deposits were $5.4 billion for 2013 and 2012, and $5.0 billion for 2011. The annual inflow of deposits at both year end 2013 and 2012 were responsible for much of the increase in total assets and total deposits over year end 2011. The Company's liquidity remained strong as its average loan-to-deposit ratio was 62.7% for 2013, compared to 60.3% for 2012 and 60.6% for 2011. Stockholders' equity was $557.0 million compared to $519.6 million for 2012 and $483.0 million for 2011. Average stockholders' equity to average assets was 9.23% at December 31, 2013, compared to 8.79% at December 31, 2012 and 8.85% at December 31, 2011.

Asset quality remained strong. Nonperforming and restructured assets continued on a downward trend, decreasing to 0.69% of total assets at December 31, 2013, compared to 0.81% at December 31, 2012 and 0.71% at December 31, 2011. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans decreased slightly to 1.15% for 2013 compared to 1.19% for 2012 and 1.25% for 2011.

On January 24, 2014, BancFirst, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BancFirst Corporation, announced that it had entered into a purchase and assumption agreement, without loss sharing, with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC"), to assume all of the deposits and purchase certain assets of The Bank of Union, El Reno, Oklahoma ("The Bank of Union"). The Bank of Union was closed on that day by the Oklahoma State Banking Department. At the time of the closing, The Bank of Union had total deposits of approximately $302 million that were assumed by BancFirst. BancFirst initially purchased approximately $121 million of loans, the majority of which were classified as performing, $4.8 million of securities, and only $10,000 of other real estate. Its bid

included a discount for the loans purchased and no material amount of gain is expected to be recognized. BancFirst had bid on, but was not awarded, loan pools that were classified as nonperforming by the FDIC. The acquisition is not expected to have a material effect on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

On January 19, 2012, Council Oak Investment Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BancFirst completed the sale of one of its investments that resulted in a pretax gain of approximately $4.5 million. After related expenses and income taxes, the increase in net income approximated $2.6 million.

On July 12, 2011, the Company completed the acquisition of FBC Financial Corporation and its subsidiary bank, 1st Bank Oklahoma with banking locations in Claremore, Verdigris, and Inola, Oklahoma. The Company paid a premium of $1.5 million above the equity capital of FBC Financial Corporation. At acquisition, 1st Bank Oklahoma had approximately $217 million in total assets, $116 million in loans, $178 million in deposits and $18 million in equity capital. 1st Bank Oklahoma operated as a subsidiary of BancFirst Corporation until it was merged into BancFirst on February 17, 2012. The acquisition did not have a material effect on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

In November 2010, the FDIC issued a final rule to implement provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act that provide for temporary unlimited coverage for noninterest-bearing transaction accounts. The separate coverage for noninterest-bearing transaction accounts became effective on December 31, 2010 and terminated on December 31, 2012.

In November 2009, the FDIC issued a rule that required insured depository institutions to prepay their estimated quarterly risk-based assessments for the fourth quarter of 2009 and for all of 2010, 2011 and 2012. In June 2013, the Company received a refund of $9.6 million for overpayment of this assessment.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

The Company's significant accounting policies are described in Note (1) to the consolidated financial statements. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States inherently involves the use of estimates and assumptions, which affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and the related disclosures. These estimates relate principally to the allowance for loan losses, income taxes, intangible assets and the fair value of financial instruments. Such estimates and assumptions may change over time and actual amounts realized may differ from those reported. The following is a summary of the accounting policies and estimates that management believes are the most critical.

Allowance for Loan Losses

The allowance for loan losses is management's estimate of the probable losses incurred in the Company's loan portfolio through the balance sheet date.

The allowance for loan losses is increased by provisions charged to operating expense and is reduced by net loan charge-offs. The amount of the allowance for loan losses is based on past loan loss experience, evaluations of known impaired loans, levels of adversely classified loans, general economic conditions and other environmental factors. A loan is considered impaired when it is probable that the Company will be unable to collect all amounts due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement. The majority of the Company's impaired loans are collateral dependent. For collateral dependent loans, the amount of impairment is measured based upon the fair value of the underlying collateral and is included in the allowance for loan losses.

The amount of the allowance for loan losses is first estimated by each business unit's management based on their evaluation of their unit's portfolio. This evaluation involves identifying impaired and adversely classified loans. Specific allowances for losses are determined for impaired loans based on either the loans' estimated discounted cash flows or the fair values of the collateral. Allowances for adversely classified loans are estimated


Table of Contents

using historical loss percentages for each type of loan adjusted for various economic and environmental factors related to the underlying loans. An allowance is also estimated for non-adversely classified loans using a historical loss percentage based on losses arising specifically from non-adversely classified loans, adjusted for various economic and environmental factors related to the underlying loans. Each month the Company's Senior Loan Committee reviews each business unit's allowance, and the aggregate allowance for the Company and, on a quarterly basis, adjusts and approves the adequacy of the allowance. In addition, annually or more frequently as needed, the Senior Loan Committee evaluates and establishes the loss percentages used in the estimates of the allowance based on historical loss data, and giving consideration to their assessment of current economic and environmental conditions. To facilitate the Senior Loan Committee's evaluation, the Company's Asset Quality Department performs periodic reviews of each of the Company's business units and reports on the adequacy of management's identification of impaired and adversely classified loans, and their adherence to the Company's loan policies and procedures.

The process of evaluating the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses necessarily involves the exercise of judgment and consideration of numerous subjective factors and, accordingly, there can be no assurance that the estimate of incurred losses will not change in light of future developments and economic conditions. Different assumptions and conditions could result in a materially different amount for the allowance for loan losses.

Income Taxes

The Company files a consolidated income tax return. Deferred taxes are recognized under the liability method based upon the future tax consequences of temporary differences between the carrying amounts and tax basis of assets and liabilities, using the tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the periods when the related temporary differences are expected to be realized.

The amount of accrued current and deferred income taxes is based on estimates of taxes due or receivable from taxing authorities either currently or in the future. Changes in these accruals are reported as tax expense, and involve estimates of the various components included in determining taxable income, tax credits, other taxes and temporary differences. Changes periodically occur in the estimates due to changes in tax rates, tax laws and regulations, and implementation of new tax planning strategies. The process of determining the accruals for income taxes necessarily involves the exercise of considerable judgment and consideration of numerous subjective factors.

Management performs an analysis of the Company's tax positions annually and believes it is more likely than not that all of its tax positions will be utilized in future years.

Intangible Assets and Goodwill

Core deposit intangibles are amortized on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of seven to ten years and customer relationship intangibles are amortized on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life of three to eighteen years. Mortgage servicing rights are amortized based on current prepayment assumptions. Goodwill is not amortized, but is evaluated at a reporting unit level at least annually for impairment or more frequently if other indicators of impairment are present. At least annually in the fourth quarter, intangible assets, excluding mortgage servicing rights, are evaluated for possible impairment. Impairment losses are measured by comparing the fair values of the intangible assets with their recorded amounts. Any impairment losses are reported in the statement of comprehensive income. Mortgage servicing rights are adjusted to fair value quarterly, if impaired.

The evaluation of remaining core deposit intangibles for possible impairment involves reassessing the useful lives and the recoverability of the intangible assets. The evaluation of the useful lives is performed by reviewing the levels of core deposits of the respective branches acquired. The actual life of a core deposit base may be longer than originally estimated due to more successful retention of customers, or may be shorter due to more

rapid runoff. Amortization of core deposit intangibles would be adjusted, if necessary, to amortize the remaining net book values over the remaining lives of the core deposits. The evaluation for recoverability is only performed if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the intangibles may not be recoverable.

The evaluation of goodwill for possible impairment is performed by comparing the fair values of the related reporting units with their carrying amounts including goodwill. The fair values of the related business units are estimated using market data for prices of recent acquisitions of banks and branches.

The evaluation of intangible assets and goodwill for the years ended December 31, 2013, 2012 and 2011 resulted in no impairments.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Securities that are being held for indefinite periods of time, or that may be sold as part of the Company's asset/liability management strategy, to provide liquidity or for other reasons, are classified as available for sale and are stated at estimated fair value. Unrealized gains or losses on securities available for sale are reported as a component of stockholders' equity, net of income tax. Securities that are determined to be impaired, and for which such impairment is determined to be other than temporary, are adjusted to fair value and a corresponding loss is recognized in earnings.

The estimates of fair values of securities and other financial instruments are based on a variety of factors. In some cases, fair values represent quoted market prices for identical or comparable instruments. In other cases, fair values have been estimated based on assumptions concerning the amount and timing of estimated future cash flows and assumed discount rates reflecting varying degrees of risk. Accordingly, the fair values may not represent actual values of the financial instruments that could have been realized as of year-end or that will be realized in the future.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Net Interest Income

Net interest income, which is the Company's principal source of operating revenue, decreased in 2013 by $1.3 million, to a total of $163.5 million, compared to an increase of $7.9 million in 2012 and an increase of $14.1 million in 2011. In 2013, net interest income decreased slightly due to lower loan rates offset by lower deposit rates and increased loan volume. In 2012, net interest income increased due primarily to higher loan volume and lower deposit rates. In 2011, $12.0 million of the increase in net interest income was related to the Company's acquisitions made in the latter part of 2010 and during 2011.

Net interest margin is the ratio of taxable-equivalent net interest income to average earning assets for the period. The Company's net interest margin was 3.04% for 2013, compared to 3.13% for 2012 and 3.20% for 2011. Net interest margin has decreased in recent years due to continued historically low interest rates and the maturity or pay down of higher-yielding earning assets.


Table of Contents

Changes in the volume of earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities and changes in interest rates, determine the changes in net interest income. The following volume/rate analysis summarizes the relative contribution of each of these components to the changes in net interest income in 2013 and 2012. If interest rates and/or earning asset volume do not increase, management would expect its net interest margin to continue to compress in 2014 as higher yielding loans and securities mature and are replaced at current market rates.

(1) The effects of changes in the mix of earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities have been combined with the changes due to volume.

The following interest rate sensitivity analysis measures the sensitivity of the Company's net interest margin to changes in interest rates by analyzing the repricing relationship between its earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities. This analysis is limited by the fact that it presents a static position as of a single day and is not necessarily indicative of the Company's position at any other point in time, and does not take into account the sensitivity of rates of specific assets and liabilities to changes in market rates. The Company's approach to managing the interest sensitivity gap limits risk while taking advantage of the Company's stable core deposit base and the historical existence of a positively sloped yield curve.

The Analysis of Interest Rate Sensitivity presents the Company's earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities based on maturity and repricing frequency at December 31, 2013. The Company's cumulative negative gap position in the one year interval decreased to $57 million at December 31, 2013 from $65 million at December 31, 2012, and decreased as a percentage of total earning assets to 1.0% from 1.2% at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. This negative gap position assumes that the Company's core savings and transaction deposits are immediately rate sensitive. In a falling rate or sustained low rate environment, the benefit of the Company's noninterest-bearing funds is decreased, resulting in a decrease in the Company's net interest margin over time.

The Company's provision for loan losses was $1.3 million for 2013, compared to $3.1 million for 2012 and $4.5 million for 2011. The decrease in the provision for loan losses during the last two years reflects a decreasing trend in the level of adversely graded loans. During 2011, $1.7 million of the increase in the provision for loan losses was related to the Company's bank acquisitions made in the latter part of 2010 and 2011. The Company establishes an allowance as an estimate of the probable inherent losses in the loan portfolio at the balance sheet date. Management believes the allowance for loan losses is appropriate based upon management's best estimate of probable losses that have been incurred within the existing loan portfolio. Should any of the factors considered by management in evaluating the appropriate level of the allowance for loan losses change, the Company's estimate of probable loan losses could also change, which could affect the amount of future provisions for loan losses. Net loan charge-offs were $949,000 for 2013 compared to $2.0 million for 2012 and $2.6 million for 2011. The net charge-offs equated to 0.03%, 0.07% and 0.09% of average loans for 2013, 2012 and 2011, respectively. A more detailed discussion of the allowance for loan losses is provided under "Loans (Including Acquired Loans)."

The Company had fees from debit card usage totaling $18.1 million, $16.5 million and $15.1 million for the years 2013, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The Dodd-Frank Act has given the Federal Reserve the authority to establish rules regarding debit card interchange fees charged for electronic debit transactions by payment card issuers. Because of the uncertainty as to any future rulemaking by the Federal Reserve and the inability to forecast competitive responses, the Company cannot provide any assurance as to the ultimate impact of the Dodd-Frank Act on the amount of revenue from debit card usage reported in future periods.
