Banner Corporation Earns $85.4 Million, or $2.52 per Diluted Share in 2016;
Net Income Totaled $22.8 Million, or $0.69 per Diluted Share, in the Fourth Quarter of 2016;
Highlighted by Continued Revenue Growth and an Expanded Net Interest Margin

Walla Walla, WA - January 25, 2017 - Banner Corporation (NASDAQ GSM: BANR), the parent company of Banner Bank and Islanders Bank, today reported continued strong revenue generation contributed to solid fourth quarter and full year 2016 operating results.  Net income in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $22.8 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, compared to $23.9 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, in the preceding quarter and $6.9 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter a year ago.  The current quarter results were impacted by $788,000 of acquisition-related expenses which, net of tax benefit, reduced net income by $0.02 per diluted share.  The results for the preceding quarter included $1.7 million of acquisition-related expenses which, net of tax benefit, reduced net income by $0.03 per diluted share, while operating results in the fourth quarter a year ago included $18.4 million of acquisition-related expenses which, net of tax benefit, reduced net income by $0.37 per diluted share.
For the year ended December 31, 2016, net income increased to $85.4 million, or $2.52 per diluted share, compared to $45.2 million, or $1.89 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2015.  Acquisition-related expenses were $11.7 million (or $0.22, net of tax, per diluted share) for 2016, compared to $26.1 million (or $0.76, net of tax, per diluted share) for 2015.
"Our 2016 operating performance continued to reflect the success of our proven client acquisition, balance sheet management and product pricing strategies, which produced solid core revenue and additional core deposit growth," stated Mark J. Grescovich, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "We also benefited from the successful completion of the integration of the AmericanWest Bank acquisition, which made a dramatic impact on our scale and reach and is providing enhanced opportunity for future client and revenue growth.  During the fourth quarter, we made additional progress in generating operating synergies as a result of the consolidation of overlapping locations and integration of operational activities earlier in the year.  However, during the quarter we also incurred increased expenses related to enhanced infrastructure and regulatory compliance costs as we prepared to cross the threshold of $10 billion in total assets.  While increasing regulatory costs are a significant headwind as we enter 2017, through the hard work of our employees across the franchise, we expect to continue successfully executing on our strategies and priorities to deliver sustainable profitability and revenue growth to our shareholders while maintaining our moderate risk profile."
At December 31, 2016, Banner Corporation had $9.79 billion in assets, $7.37 billion in net loans and $8.12 billion in deposits.  The Company operates 190 branch offices located in nine of the top 20 largest western Metropolitan Statistical Areas by population.

Provision for loan losses was $2.0 million, increasing the allowance for loan losses to $86.0 million or 1.15% of total loans.
Core deposits increased 1% during the current quarter and represented 87% of total deposits at December 31, 2016.
Quarterly dividends to shareholders were $0.23 per share, providing a current yield of 1.6% based on our December 31, 2016 closing price.
Repurchased 1,145,250 shares of common stock at an average price of $44.29 per share during the year 2016, including 660,900 shares at an average price per share of $44.86 during the fourth quarter.
Common shareholders' tangible equity per share* was $31.06 at December 31, 2016, compared to $31.14 at the preceding quarter end and $29.64 a year ago.
The ratio of tangible common shareholders' equity to tangible assets* remained strong at 10.83% at December 31, 2016, compared to 11.03% at the preceding quarter end and 10.67% a year ago.

*Revenues from core operations and non-interest income from core operations (both of which exclude fair value adjustments and gains and losses on the sale of securities), acquisition accounting impact on net interest margin, non-interest expense from core operations (which excludes acquisition-related costs), the adjusted allowance for loan losses to adjusted loans (which includes net loan discounts on acquired loans) and references to tangible common stockholders' equity per share and the ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets (both of which exclude goodwill and other intangible assets, net) represent non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) financial measures. Management has presented these non-GAAP financial measures in this earnings release because it believes that they provide useful and comparative information to assess trends in Banner's core operations reflected in the current quarter's results and facilitate the comparison of our performance with the performance of our peers.  Where applicable, comparable earnings information using GAAP financial measures is also presented.  See also Non-GAAP Financial Measures reconciliation tables on the last three pages of this press release.
Acquisition of AmericanWest Bank
Effective October 1, 2015, Banner completed the acquisition of Starbuck Bancshares, Inc. ("Starbuck") and its wholly owned subsidiary AmericanWest Bank.  The merger was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting.  Accordingly, the acquired assets (including identifiable intangible assets) and assumed liabilities of Starbuck were recognized at their respective estimated fair values as of the merger date.  The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the net assets acquired was allocated to goodwill.  The fair value on the merger date represents management's best estimates based on available information and facts and circumstances in existence on the merger date.  The acquisition accounting was subject to adjustment within a post-closing measurement period of one year from the acquisition date.  During the fourth quarter of 2016, there were no post-closing adjustments to goodwill as the measurement period has lapsed; however, post-closing adjustments reduced goodwill by $3.2 million during the year ended December 31, 2016.
In addition to the acquisition of AmericanWest Bank, the acquisition of Siuslaw Financial Group and its wholly-owned subsidiary Siuslaw Bank ("Siuslaw") on March 6, 2015 had an impact on the current and historical operating results of Banner.  For additional details regarding acquisitions and merger related expenses, see the tables under Business Combinations on page 12 of this press release.
Income Statement Review
Banner's fourth quarter net interest income, before the provision for loan losses, increased 4% to $97.2 million, compared to $93.7 million in the preceding quarter.  Fourth quarter 2016 net interest income, before the provision for loan losses, increased 6% compared to $92.1 million in the fourth quarter a year ago.  For the year, Banner's net interest income, before the provision for loan losses, increased 55% to $375.1 million compared to $242.3 million in 2015 largely reflecting the acquisition of AmericanWest Bank and continued client acquisition.
"Our net interest margin increased 17 basis points compared to the preceding quarter and increased 27 basis points compared to the fourth quarter a year ago, as a result of higher average loan yields and increased accretion from acquisition accounting loan discounts, as well as modest changes in our asset mix and slightly reduced funding costs," said Grescovich.  "Excluding the impact of acquisition accounting, the net interest margin increased 12 basis points compared to the preceding quarter, and increased by 24 basis points compared to a year ago.*"
Net interest margin is enhanced by the amortization of acquisition accounting discounts on loans acquired in the acquisitions, which are accreted into loan interest income, as well as by net premiums on non-market-rate certificate of deposit liabilities assumed, which are amortized as a reduction to deposit interest expense.  Banner's net interest margin was 4.32% for the fourth quarter of 2016, which included 16 basis points as a result of accretion from acquisition accounting loan discounts, one basis point from the amortization of deposit premiums and two basis points as a result of the impact of the net loan acquisition discounts on average earning assets from both the AmericanWest Bank and Siuslaw acquisitions, compared to a net interest margin of 4.15% in the preceding quarter and 4.05% in the fourth quarter a year ago.  Excluding the effects of acquisition accounting, the net interest margin was 4.13%* in the fourth quarter, 4.01% in the preceding quarter and 3.89%* in the fourth quarter a year ago.
Average interest-earning asset yields increased 15 basis points to 4.49% compared to 4.34% for the preceding quarter and increased 25 basis points compared to 4.24% in the fourth quarter a year ago.  Loan yields increased 15 basis points compared to the preceding quarter and increased

21 basis points from the fourth quarter a year ago.  Loan yields were positively impacted by increased market interest rates late in the fourth quarter due primarily to the impact of the December 2016 increase in the federal funds rate and related increases in Prime and LIBOR rates.  Loan yields in the current quarter were also aided by $1.1 million in prepayment fees related to a single credit relationship.  The accretion of discounts and related balance sheet impact on the loans acquired through the acquisitions added 21 basis points to reported loan yields for the quarter.  Deposit costs decreased one basis point compared to the preceding quarter and decreased two basis points compared to the fourth quarter a year ago.  Amortization of acquisition accounting net premiums on certificates of deposit reduced the cost of deposits by two basis points in the fourth quarter of 2016.  The total cost of funds decreased one basis point to 0.18% during the fourth quarter compared to the preceding quarter and declined two basis points compared to 0.20% for the fourth quarter a year ago, reflecting the decreased deposit costs and a reduction in Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) advances as part of a strategy to remain below $10 billion in total assets at December 31, 2016.
"As expected, due to loan growth and the renewal of acquired loans out of the discounted loan portfolio, we recorded a $2.0 million provision for loan losses during the fourth quarter, the same as in the preceding quarter," added Grescovich.  In the fourth quarter a year ago, Banner did not record a provision.
Mortgage banking revenues, including gains on one- to four-family and multifamily loan sales and loan servicing fees, decreased significantly to $5.1 million in the fourth quarter compared to $8.1 million in the preceding quarter but increased 15% compared to $4.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.  For the full year, mortgage banking revenues increased 45% to $25.6 million compared to $17.7 million in 2015.  The decrease in mortgage banking revenues compared to the third quarter reflected an expected seasonal pattern for one- to four- family loans, but also reflected meaningfully narrower spreads on sales compared to exceptionally wide spread levels in the preceding quarter.   In addition, sales of multifamily loans were significantly less in the current quarter resulting in gains of only $254,000, while sales of multifamily loans resulted in $1.4 million of gains in the third quarter.  Home purchase activity accounted for 58% of fourth quarter one- to four-family mortgage banking loan originations.
Also reflecting seasonal factors, Banner's deposit fees and other service charges decreased 6% to $12.2 million in the fourth quarter compared to $12.9 million in the preceding quarter and, principally as a result of changes in certain fee structures for accounts acquired in the AmericanWest Bank merger, decreased 7% compared to $13.2 million in the fourth quarter a year ago.  Nonetheless, reflecting the significant increase in core deposits compared to a year earlier, deposit fees and other service charges increased 21% to $49.2 million for the year, compared to $40.6 million in 2015.
Total revenues were $116.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to $117.2 million in the preceding quarter and $110.5 million in the fourth quarter a year ago.  Revenues from core operations* (revenues excluding gains and losses on the sale of securities and net change in valuation of financial instruments) was $117.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, the same as the preceding quarter.  Revenues from core operations* increased 5% compared to $112.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.  Total revenues for 2016 were $458.5 million compared to $304.6 million in 2015, with the significant increase largely attributable to the acquisition of AmericanWest Bank.  For the year ended December 31, 2016, revenues from core operations* increased 50% to $460.3 million compared to $305.9 million in 2015.
Fourth quarter 2016 results included a $1.1 million net loss for fair value adjustments as a result of changes in the valuation of financial instruments carried at fair value that was partly offset by a $311,000 net gain on the sale of securities.  In the preceding quarter, results included a $1.1 million net loss for fair value adjustments that was partly offset by a $891,000 net gain on the sale of securities.  In the fourth quarter a year ago, results included a $1.5 million net loss for fair value adjustments and a $3,000 net loss on the sale of securities.  In 2016 results included a $2.6 million net loss for fair value adjustments as a result of changes in the valuation of financial instruments carried at fair value that was partly offset by an $843,000 net gain on the sale of securities.  A year ago, results included an $813,000 net loss for fair value adjustments and a $540,000 net loss on the sale of securities.
Total non-interest income, which includes the changes in the valuation of financial instruments carried at fair value and gains and losses on the sale of securities, was $19.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to $23.5 million in the third quarter of 2016 and $18.4 million in the fourth quarter a year ago.  Non-interest income from core operations,* which excludes gains and losses on sale of securities and net changes in the valuation of financial instruments, was $20.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to $23.7 million for the third quarter of 2016 and $19.9 million in the fourth quarter a year ago.  For the year ended December 31, 2016, Banner's total non-interest income was $83.5 million compared to $62.3 million a year ago and non-interest income from core operations* was $85.2 million compared to $63.6 million for the same periods, respectively.
Banner's total non-interest expenses were $79.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to $79.1 million in the preceding quarter and $100.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.  For the year, total non-interest expenses were $322.9 million compared to $236.6 million in 2015.  The year's increase in non-interest expenses was largely attributable to the incremental costs associated with operating the branches and the related operations acquired in the AmericanWest Bank merger on October 1, 2015, as well as generally increased compensation, occupancy and payment and card processing services reflecting increased transaction volume.  The current quarter's non-interest expenses also included increased advertising and marketing expenses, elevated costs for professional services largely as result of seasonal factors relating to accounting,

audit and examination processes, and costs incurred in anticipation of enhanced regulatory compliance requirements.  There was $788,000 in acquisition-related expenses in the current quarter compared to $1.7 million in the preceding quarter and $18.4 million in the fourth quarter a year ago.
For the fourth quarter of 2016, Banner recorded $11.9 million in state and federal income tax expense for an effective tax rate of 34.4%, which reflects normal statutory tax rates reduced by the effect of tax-exempt income and certain tax credits.
Balance Sheet Review
As part of Banner's previously announced strategy to maintain total assets below $10.0 billion through the year 2016, total assets decreased to $9.79 billion at December 31, 2016, from $9.84 billion at September 30, 2016 and $9.80 billion a year ago.  The total of securities and interest-bearing deposits held at other banks was $1.16 billion at December 31, 2016, compared to $1.39 billion at September 30, 2016 and $1.54 billion a year ago.  The decrease in the securities portfolio during the current quarter reflects the temporary deleveraging strategy.  The average effective duration of Banner's securities portfolio was approximately 3.8 years at December 31, 2016 compared to 3.3 years at December 31, 2015.
"Total loans increased again during the quarter, with good production in targeted loan types, including increases in commercial real estate and construction and development loans.  The regional economy remains solid and we continue to see significant potential for growth in our loan origination pipelines," said Grescovich.
Net loans receivable increased 1% to $7.37 billion at December 31, 2016, compared to $7.31 billion at September 30, 2016 and increased 2% compared to $7.24 billion a year ago.  Commercial real estate and multifamily real estate loans increased 2% to $3.59 billion at December 31, 2016, compared to $3.53 billion at September 30, 2016, but increased modestly compared to $3.57 billion a year ago, reflecting significant sales earlier in the year of multifamily loans acquired in the AmericanWest Bank merger, which had been held for investment.  Commercial business loans increased 2% to $1.21 billion at December 31, 2016, compared to $1.19 billion three months earlier but were unchanged compared to a year ago.  Agricultural business loans, which are seasonal by nature, decreased to $369.2 million at December 31, 2016, compared to $383.3 million three months earlier and $376.5 million a year ago.  Total construction, land and land development loans increased 3% to $823.1 million at December 31, 2016, compared to $797.3 million at September 30, 2016, and increased 43% compared to $574.4 million a year earlier.  One- to four-family loans continued to decline as a result of repayments, with nearly all newly originated mortgage loans being sold in the secondary market.
Loans held for sale increased significantly to $246.4 million at December 31, 2016, compared to $123.1 million at September 30, 2016 and $44.7 million at December 31, 2015, principally as a result of multifamily loan originations that outpaced loan sales.  Loans held for sale at December 31, 2016, included $216.3 million of multifamily loans and $30.1 million of one- to four-family loans.
Total deposits were $8.12 billion at December 31, 2016, a modest increase compared to $8.11 billion at September 30, 2016, and $8.06 billion a year ago.  In connection with certain product changes earlier in the year, Banner converted approximately $420 million of former AmericanWest Bank interest-bearing deposits to non-interest-bearing deposits during the first quarter of 2016.  As a result of the product changes as well as organic growth, non-interest-bearing account balances increased 20% to $3.14 billion at December 31, 2016, compared to $2.62 billion a year ago.  Interest-bearing transaction and savings accounts decreased 4% to $3.94 billion compared to $4.08 billion a year ago as the product change more than offset organic growth.  Certificates of deposit decreased 23% to $1.05 billion at December 31, 2016, compared to $1.35 billion a year earlier.  Brokered deposits totaled $34.1 million at December 31, 2016, compared to $60.3 million at September 30, 2016 and $162.9 million a year ago.
In part reflecting expected seasonal trends but also as a result of additional account growth, core deposits (non-interest bearing and interest-bearing transaction and savings accounts) increased by 1% during the current quarter.  Core deposits represented 87% of total deposits at December 31, 2016, compared to 86% of total deposits at September 30, 2016 and 83% of total deposits a year earlier.  As a result of this improved deposit mix, as well as modest pricing adjustments, the cost of deposits was 0.13% for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, a one basis point decline compared to the preceding quarter, and a two basis points decline compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2015.
At December 31, 2016, total common shareholders' equity was $1.31 billion, or $39.34 per share, compared to $1.33 billion at September 30, 2016 and $1.30 billion a year ago.  The decrease in shareholders' equity compared to the prior quarter primarily reflects the repurchase of 660,900 shares of common stock at an average price of $44.86 per share as well as the $0.23 per share quarterly dividend, which was partially offset by net income for the quarter.  The decrease in shareholders' equity for the quarter also reflects an adverse change of $11.5 million in other comprehensive income for the quarter principally related to changes in the value securities available for sale as a result of increased market interest rates.  At December 31, 2016, tangible common shareholders' equity*, which excludes goodwill and other intangible assets, was $1.03 billion, or 10.83% of tangible assets*, compared to $1.05 billion, or 11.03% of tangible assets, at September 30, 2016, and $1.01 billion, or 10.67% of tangible assets, a year ago.  Banner's tangible book value per share* increased to $31.06 at December 31, 2016, compared to $29.64 per share a year ago.

Banner Corporation and its subsidiary banks continue to maintain capital levels in excess of the requirements to be categorized as "well-capitalized" under the Basel III and Dodd Frank regulatory standards.  At December 31, 2016, Banner Corporation's common equity Tier 1 capital ratio was 11.13%, its Tier 1 leverage capital to average assets ratio was 11.83%, and its total capital to risk-weighted assets ratio was 13.32%.
Credit Quality
In accordance with acquisition accounting, loans acquired from AmericanWest Bank and Siuslaw were recorded at their estimated fair value, which resulted in a net discount to the loans' contractual amounts, of which a portion reflects a discount for possible credit losses.  Credit discounts are included in the determination of fair value, and as a result, no allowance for loan and lease losses is recorded for acquired loans at the acquisition date.  Although the discount recorded on the acquired loans is not reflected in the allowance for loan losses or related allowance coverage ratios, we believe it should be considered when comparing the current ratios to similar ratios in periods prior to the acquisitions of AmericanWest Bank and Siuslaw.
The allowance for loan losses was $86.0 million at December 31, 2016, or 1.15% of total loans outstanding and 381% of non-performing loans compared to $78.0 million at December 31, 2015, or 1.07% of total loans outstanding and 512% of non-performing loans.  Banner had net charge-offs of $253,000 in the fourth quarter compared to net recoveries of $902,000 in the third quarter of 2016 and net recoveries of $688,000 in the fourth quarter a year ago.  Primarily as a result of loan growth and the renewal of acquired loans out of the discounted loan portfolio, Banner recorded a $2.0 million provision for loan losses in the current quarter which was the same amount as recorded in the prior quarter.  Banner did not record a provision for the fourth quarter of 2015.  If the allowance for loan losses included the remaining loan discount*, the adjusted allowance for loan losses to adjusted loans would have been 1.57% as of December 31, 2016 as compared to 1.65% a year ago.  Non-performing loans were $22.6 million at December 31, 2016, compared to $27.3 million at September 30, 2016 and $15.2 million a year ago.  Real estate owned and other repossessed assets were $11.2 million at December 31, 2016, compared to $4.9 million at September 30, 2016, and $11.9 million a year ago.
Banner's non-performing assets were $33.8 million, or 0.35% of total assets, at December 31, 2016, compared to $32.2 million, or 0.33% of total assets, at September 30, 2016 and $27.1 million, or 0.28% of total assets, a year ago.  In addition to non-performing assets, purchased credit-impaired loans decreased to $32.3 million at December 31, 2016, compared to $38.7 million at September 30, 2016, and $58.6 million a year ago.
