Executive Summary

CoBiz Financial Inc. is a $3.5 billion financial holding company offering a broad array of financial service products to its target market of professionals, small and medium-sized businesses, and high-net-worth individuals primarily in Arizona and Colorado. Our operating segments include Commercial Banking and Fee-Based Lines.

Earnings are derived primarily from our net interest income, which is interest income less interest expense, and our noninterest income earned from fee-based business lines and banking service fees, offset by noninterest expense. As the majority of our assets are interest-earning and our liabilities are interest-bearing, changes in interest rates impact our net interest margin, the largest component of our operating revenue (defined as net interest income plus noninterest income). We manage our interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities to reduce the impact of interest rate changes on our operating results. We also have focused on reducing our dependency on the net interest margin by increasing our noninterest income.

Industry Overview

At its September 2016 meeting, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) kept the target range for the federal funds rate at 25-50 basis points. The FOMC noted that the case for an increase in the federal funds rate had strengthened, but decided to wait for further progress before raising the rate. The FOMC will continue to monitor progress towards the objectives of maximum employment and 2% inflation.

manner that will warrant only gradual increases in the federal funds rate and that the federal funds rate will likely remain below levels expected to prevail in the longer run for some time.

The national unemployment rate was 5.0% at September 2016 and December 2015. As of August 2016, Colorado's unemployment rate was estimated to be 3.8%, compared to 3.5% at the end of 2015. Arizona's unemployment rate was estimated to be 5.4% in August 2016, compared to 5.9% at the end of 2015.

In the second quarter of 2016, FDIC insured commercial banks and savings institutions reported net operating revenue that was 3.3% higher than the second quarter of 2015. The increase in net operating revenue was due to loan growth that increased net interest income. For the twelve months ended June 30, 2016, total loans and leases increased 6.7%. The provision for loan losses increased 44.2% compared to a year-ago, partly due to rising levels of troubled loans to commercial and industrial borrowers, particularly in the energy sector.
