FirstMerit Completes Acquisition of Citizens Republic Bancorp 
 Transaction forms 6th largest bank headquartered in Midwest 
Akron, Ohio, April 12, 2013 - FirstMerit Corporation (Nasdaq: FMER) announced today 
that it has consummated its acquisition of Flint, Michigan-based Citizens' Republic 
With pro-forma combined assets of$24.5 billion, the acquisition makes FirstMerit the 
sixth-largest bank headquartered in the Midwest. FirstMerit's footprint now extends 
through the contiguous states of Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois and Pennsylvania. 
The expanded company employs approximately 5,000 employees and offers customers 
more than 400 conveniently located branches and more than 440 ATM locations
The transaction, the largest in FirstMerit's history, marks FirstMerit's entrance into 
Michigan and Wisconsin and expands its presence in Northeast Ohio. On Saturday, April 
13, 2013, all former Citizens branches will reopen as FirstMerit locations. Full signage 
change will occur later this year. 
"I am excited to welcome our new employees and clients to FirstMerit," said Paul G. 
Greig, chairman, president and CEO. "It will be business as usual for customers of all 
former Citizens branches as they become a part of FirstMerit. Customers will recognize 
the familiar faces from Citizens who will continue to take care of their banking needs." 
 "We are pleased to bring the FirstMerit brand to Michigan and Wisconsin and look 
forward to serving the needs of retail, business and wealth management clients in our 
communities across the Midwest," said Sandy Pierce, vice chairman of FirstMerit and 
chairman and CEO of FirstMerit Michigan. "Our proven value proposition and 'you first' 
philosophy have kept us strong and profitable throughout the economic cycle and 
position us well to be the bank of choice with new and existing customers." 
Other FirstMerit Aquisitions:


FirstMerit signs a definitive purchase and assumption agreement to acquire $1.2 billion of deposits and 24 Chicago-area branches from St. Louis-based First Bank. FirstMerit also acquires substantially all of the asset-based loans from an affiliate of First Bank under a separate loan purchase agreement. This transaction closes in the fourth quarter of 2009.


FirstMerit closes on and converts First Bank branches in Chicago to FirstMerit. FirstMerit also acquires and converts George Washington Savings Bank in Chicago with assistance from the FDIC. In May, FirstMerit acquires Midwest Bank and Trust in Chicago from the FDIC.
