Non-interest expense increased $2.590 million or 6.9% to $40.176 million for the fourth quarter of 2009 compared with $37.586 million for the fourth quarter of 2008. The increase was mainly attributable to increased FDIC assessments.

Non-interest income increased $7.727 million or 14.8% to $60.097 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared with $52.370 million for the same period in 2008.

Non-interest expense increased $25.904 million or 18.0% to $169.700 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared with $143.796 million for the same period in 2008. The increase was due primarily to (i) an increase in salaries and benefits expense due to associates added in connection with the Franklin Bank transaction and the acquisition of Banco Popular and 1st Choice; (ii) an increase in FDIC assessments and (iii) an increase in general operating costs associated with the banking centers acquired in 2008 and the banking offices that were previously locations of Franklin Bank. Total non-interest expense for the twelve months ended December 31, 2008 included a $14.025 million impairment charge on write-down of securities.

Acquisition of U. S. Bank's Texas Branches

On January 19, 2010, Prosperity announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire the three (3) Texas retail bank branches of U.S. Bank (USB). Prosperity Bank will pay a premium for approximately $420 million in deposits, as well as purchase certain loans and other assets attributable to the branches.

The three locations being acquired by Prosperity are the Texas locations U.S. Bank acquired from the FDIC on October 30, 2009 when U.S. Bank acquired the nine (9) subsidiary banks of FBOP Corporation. The Texas banks were Madisonville State Bank in Madisonville, Texas; Citizens National Bank in Teague, Texas; and North Houston Bank in Houston, Texas.

The agreement has been approved by both banks and is expected to close during the first quarter of 2010, although delays could occur. The transaction is subject to certain conditions, including customary regulatory approvals.

Assumption of deposits and acquisition of certain assets from the FDIC as receiver for Franklin Bank, SSB

On November 7, 2008, Prosperity Bank® assumed approximately $3.6 billion of deposits, including all uninsured deposits, from the FDIC, acting in its capacity as receiver for Franklin Bank. The FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Prosperity Bank, which paid a premium to ensure that all deposits of Franklin Bank, both insured and uninsured, were transferred to Prosperity Bank. Under terms of the purchase and assumption agreement, Prosperity acquired certain assets from the FDIC, including approximately $350 million in US Treasury and Agency Securities and approximately $350 million in performing loans. The remaining net proceeds were predominately invested in US Agency Securities.

While Franklin Bank operated forty-five (45) full service banking offices, Prosperity is operating thirty-three (33) of the locations as full-service banking centers following the completion of the operational integration which occurred during the first quarter of 2009. The former Franklin Bank locations not operated by Prosperity were closed and consolidated into nearby Prosperity Bank locations.

Acquisition of 1st Choice Bancorp, Inc.

Prosperity's management uses certain non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures to evaluate its performance. Specifically, Prosperity reviews tangible book value per share, return on average tangible common equity and the tangible equity to tangible assets ratio for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Prosperity also reviews its net income, earnings per share, non-interest expense and related performance ratios for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2008 excluding the non-recurring impairment charge on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac perpetual preferred securities. Prosperity has included in this Earnings Release information relating to these non-GAAP financial measures for the applicable periods presented. Prosperity believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide information useful to investors in understanding Prosperity's financial results and Prosperity believes that its presentation, together with the accompanying reconciliations, provides a better understanding of factors and trends affecting Prosperity's business and allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to management, the entire financial services sector, bank stock analysts and bank regulators. Further, Prosperity believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of its core operating earnings and business outlook. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for GAAP basis measures and results and Prosperity strongly encourages investors to review its consolidated financial statements in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names.
