Cadence Bank Awarded Second Consecutive Five-Star Rating

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Sept. 9, 2013 — Cadence Bank was honored with its second consecutive Five-Star (“Superior”) Rating from Bauer Financial, Inc., the nation’s leading bank rating and research firm. The rating is based on the quarter ending June 30, 2013.

Bauer’s Five Star-Rating, the highest performance ranking available, attests to a financial institution’s safety and soundness position and is based on independent, unbiased analysis. Cadence has been recommended by Bauer for seven consecutive quarters.

Paul Murphy, chairman of Cadence Bank, said, “We are proud to be considered among the strongest regional banks in the country. Maintaining a financially solid organization is crucial to our ability to serve our clients continually regardless of the economic climate. Since we began operating in 2011, we have grown steadily through thoughtful acquisitions and core organic growth. We attribute much of our success to the hiring of experienced, service-oriented bankers across our footprint and the development of relevant products and services that meet the needs of today’s consumers.”
