Cadence Bank Among SNL 25 Best-Performing Regional Banks

HOUSTON, April 25, 2014 — Cadence Bancorp, LLC has taken the #15 spot among the best-performing regional banks in the U.S. in SNL Financial’s 2013 regional bank performance ranking, based on the financial data of its wholly owned subsidiary, Cadence Bank, N.A.

“We are pleased to earn such a favorable position in our first appearance in these rankings,” said Paul B. Murphy, Jr., chairman of Cadence Bank. “This is a testament to the talent of our bankers, our exceptional products and services, and the growing strength of our brand.”

SNL Financial (link sends e-mail) is a leading provider of business intelligence, including real-time financial information and in-depth analysis on the banking, financial services and insurance industries. The SNL ranking used six core financial metrics that accounted for profitability, asset quality and growth for the 12-month period ended Dec. 31, 2013.

Banks considered had less than $50 billion in revenue and at least 60 offices, which included 102 eligible companies. These banks also had to be well-capitalized by regulatory standards.

According to SNL data, Cadence Bank, with $6.5 billion in assets at the end of 2013, reported an 18.27 return on average tangible common equity for the year, a loan growth rate of 21.12 percent year over year, and net interest margin of 5.03 percent.

Cadence Bank CEO Sam Tortorici expects continued organic growth. “We have experienced great success in bringing capital to companies within our footprint and will continue to focus on key markets within Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas.”

In addition to this recognition, Cadence Bank has earned four consecutive superior five-star ratings from independent bank research firm BauerFinancial, Inc.
