OLD NATIONAL BANCORP

2013 ANNUAL REPORT ON FORM 10-K

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

In this report, we have made various statements regarding current expectations or forecasts of future events, which speak only as of the date the statements are made. These statements are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are also made from time-to-time in press releases and in oral statements made by the officers of Old National Bancorp (“Old National,” or the “Company”). Forward-looking statements are identified by the words “expect,” “may,” “could,” “intend,” “project,” “estimate,” “believe”, “anticipate” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements also include, but are not limited to, statements regarding estimated cost savings, plans and objectives for future operations, the Company’s business and growth strategies, including future acquisitions of banks, regulatory developments, and expectations about performance as well as economic and market conditions and trends.

Such forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and estimates, which although believed to be reasonable, may turn out to be incorrect. Therefore, undue reliance should not be placed upon these estimates and statements. We can not assure that any of these statements, estimates, or beliefs will be realized and actual results may differ from those contemplated in these “forward-looking statements.” We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. You are advised to consult further disclosures we may make on related subjects in our filings with the SEC. In addition to other factors discussed in this report, some of the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements include the following:

 

  economic, market, operational, liquidity, credit and interest rate risks associated with our business;

 

  economic conditions generally and in the financial services industry;

 

  expected cost savings in connection with the consolidation of recent acquisitions may not be fully realized or realized within the expected time frames, and deposit attrition, customer loss and revenue loss following completed acquisitions may be greater than expected;

 

  unexpected difficulties and losses related to FDIC-assisted acquisitions, including those resulting from our loss-sharing arrangements with the FDIC;

 

  failure to properly understand risk characteristics of newly entered markets;

 

  increased competition in the financial services industry either nationally or regionally, resulting in, among other things, credit quality deterioration;

 

  our ability to achieve loan and deposit growth;

 

  volatility and direction of market interest rates;

 

  governmental legislation and regulation, including changes in accounting regulation or standards;

 

  our ability to execute our business plan;

 

  a weakening of the economy which could materially impact credit quality trends and the ability to generate loans;

 

  changes in the securities markets; and

 

  changes in fiscal, monetary and tax policies.

Investors should consider these risks, uncertainties and other factors in addition to risk factors included in our other filings with the SEC.

PART I

ITEM 1. BUSINESS

GENERAL

Old National is a financial holding company incorporated in the State of Indiana and maintains its principal executive office in Evansville, Indiana. We, through our wholly owned banking subsidiary, provide a wide range of services, including commercial and consumer loan and depository services, investment and brokerage services, lease financing and other traditional banking services. Through our non-bank affiliates, we provide services to supplement the banking business including fiduciary and wealth management services, insurance and other financial services. As of December 31, 2013, we employed 2,608 full-time equivalent associates.

COMPANY PROFILE

Old National Bank, our wholly owned banking subsidiary (“Old National Bank”), was founded in 1834 and is the oldest company in Evansville, Indiana. In 1982, Old National was formed; in 2001 we became a financial holding company and we are currently the largest financial holding company headquartered in the state of Indiana. Also in 2001, we completed the consolidation of 21 bank charters enabling us to operate under a common name with consistent product offerings throughout the financial center locations, consolidating back-office operations and allowing us to provide more convenient service to clients. We provide financial services primarily in Indiana, southeast Illinois, western Kentucky, and southwestern Michigan.

OPERATING SEGMENTS

We operate in three segments: banking, insurance and wealth management. Substantially all of our revenues are, and during the last three fiscal years have been, derived from customers located in, and substantially all of our assets are located in, the United States. A description of each segment follows.

Banking Segment

The banking segment operates through Old National Bank, and has traditionally been the most significant contributor to our revenue and earnings. The primary goal of the banking segment is to provide products and services that address clients’ needs and help clients reach their financial goals by offering a broad array of quality services. Our financial centers focus on convenience factors such as location, space for private consultations and quick client access to routine transactions.

As of December 31, 2013, Old National Bank operated 169 banking financial centers located primarily in Indiana, southeast Illinois, western Kentucky, and southwest Michigan. The banking segment primarily consists of lending and depository activities along with merchant cash management, internet banking and other services relating to the general banking business. In addition, the banking segment includes Indiana Old National Insurance Company (“IONIC”), which reinsures credit life insurance. IONIC also provides property and casualty insurance for Old National and reinsures most of the coverage with non-affiliated carriers.

Lending Activities

We earn interest income on loans as well as fee income from the origination of loans. Lending activities include loans to individuals which primarily consist of home equity lines of credit, residential real estate loans and consumer loans, and loans to commercial clients, which include commercial loans, commercial real estate loans, letters of credit and lease financing. Residential real estate loans are either kept in our loan portfolio or sold to secondary investors, with gains or losses from the sales being recognized.

Table of Contents

Depository Activities

We strive to serve individuals and commercial clients by providing depository services that fit their needs at competitive rates. We pay interest on the interest-bearing deposits and receive service fee revenue on various accounts. Deposit accounts include products such as noninterest-bearing demand, negotiable order of withdrawal (“NOW”), savings and money market, and time deposits. Debit and ATM cards provide clients with access to their accounts 24 hours a day at any ATM location. We also provide 24-hour telephone access and online banking as well as other electronic and mobile banking services.

Insurance

The insurance segment offers full-service insurance brokerage services including commercial property and casualty, surety, loss control services, employee benefits consulting and administration, and personal insurance. Our agencies offer products that are issued and underwritten by various insurance companies not affiliated with us. In addition, we have two affiliated third party claims management companies that collect fees related to the handling of service claims for self-insured clients.

Wealth Management

The wealth management segment includes private banking, trust services, and investment advisory services. A significant portion of this segment’s income is derived from fees, which are generally based on the market values of assets under management. This segment is focused on assisting high-net-worth individuals and families in building and preserving their wealth.

Other

Other corporate administrative units such as Human Resources or Finance, provide a wide-range of support to our other income earning segments. Expenses incurred by these support units are charged to the business segments through an internal cost allocation process, which may not be comparable to that of other companies. The other segment includes the unallocated portion of other corporate support functions, the elimination of intercompany transactions and our Corporate Treasury unit. Corporate Treasury activities consist of corporate asset and liability management. This unit’s assets and liabilities (and related interest income and expense) consist of certain investment securities, corporate-owned life insurance, and borrowings.

Additional information about our business segments is included in Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” and Note 24 to the consolidated financial statements.

MARKET AREA

We own the largest Indiana-based bank and one of the largest independent insurance agencies headquartered in Indiana. Operating from a home base in Evansville, Indiana, we have continued to grow our footprint in Indiana and Kentucky and recently entered the state of Michigan. We have expanded into the attractive Louisville, Indianapolis, Lafayette and southwest Michigan markets. In February 2007, we expanded into Northern Indiana by acquiring St. Joseph Capital Corporation, which had banking offices in Mishawaka and Elkhart, Indiana. In March 2009, we completed the acquisition of the Indiana retail branch banking network of Citizens Financial Group, which consisted of 65 branches and a training facility. The branches are located primarily in the Indianapolis area. On January 1, 2011, we closed on our acquisition of Monroe Bancorp, strengthening our presence in Bloomington, Indiana and the central and south central Indiana markets. On July 29, 2011, we acquired the banking operations of Integra Bank N.A. (“Integra”) in an FDIC-assisted transaction. Integra was a full service community bank headquartered in Evansville, Indiana that operated 52 branch locations, primarily in southwest Indiana, southeastern Illinois and western Kentucky. On September 15, 2012, we closed on our acquisition of Indiana Community Bancorp (“IBT”), strengthening our presence in Columbus, Indiana and the south central Indiana market. On July 12, 2013, we closed on our acquisition of 24 bank branches from Bank of America, which increased our presence in the South Bend/Elkhart area and provided a logical market extension into southwest Michigan.

On September 10, 2013, Old National announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire Tower Financial Corporation (“Tower”). Tower is a bank holding company with seven branches and is headquartered in Fort Wayne, Indiana. On January 8, 2014, Old National announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire United Bancorp, Inc. (“United”). United is a bank holding company headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan and has eighteen branches. The closing of the Tower acquisition is pending regulatory approval and the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The transaction with United remains subject to approval by United’s shareholders and approval by state and federal regulatory authorities, as well as the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions.

ACQUISITION AND DIVESTITURE STRATEGY

Since the formation of Old National in 1982, we have acquired almost 50 financial institutions and other financial services businesses. Future acquisitions and divestitures will be driven by a disciplined financial process and will be consistent with the existing focus on community banking, client relationships and consistent quality earnings. Targeted geographic markets for acquisitions include mid-size markets within or near our existing franchise with average to above average growth rates.

As with previous acquisitions, the consideration paid by us will be in the form of cash, debt or Old National stock. The amount and structure of such consideration is based on reasonable growth and cost savings assumptions and a thorough analysis of the impact on both long- and short-term financial results.

On January 1, 2011, we acquired Monroe Bancorp in an all stock transaction. Monroe Bancorp was headquartered in Bloomington, Indiana and had 15 banking centers. Pursuant to the merger agreement, the shareholders of Monroe Bancorp received approximately 7.6 million shares of Old National stock valued at approximately $90.1 million. On January 1, 2011, unaudited financial statements of Monroe Bancorp showed assets of $808.1 million, which included $509.6 million of loans, $166.4 million of securities and $711.5 million of deposits. The acquisition strengthened our deposit market share in the Bloomington, Indiana market and improved our deposit market share rank to first place in 2011.

On June 1, 2011, Old National’s wholly owned trust subsidiary, American National Trust and Investment Management Company d/b/a Old National Trust Company (“ONTC”), acquired the trust business of Integra. As of the closing, the trust business had approximately $328 million in assets under management. Old National paid Integra $1.3 million in an all cash transaction.

On July 29, 2011, Old National acquired the banking operations of Integra in an FDIC- assisted transaction. Integra was a full service community bank headquartered in Evansville, Indiana that operated 52 branch locations. As part of the purchase and assumption agreement, Old National and the FDIC entered into loss sharing agreements (each, a “loss sharing agreement” and collectively, the “loss sharing agreements”), whereby the FDIC will cover a substantial portion of any future losses on loans (and related unfunded commitments), other real estate owned (“OREO”) and up to 90 days of certain accrued interest on loans. The acquired loans and OREO subject to the loss sharing agreements are referred to collectively as “covered assets.” Under the terms of the loss sharing agreements, the FDIC will reimburse Old National for 80% of losses up to $275.0 million, losses in excess of $275.0 million up to $467.2 million at 0% reimbursement, and 80% of losses in excess of $467.2 million. As of December 31, 2013, we do not expect losses to exceed $275.0 million. Old National will reimburse the FDIC for its share of recoveries with respect to losses for which the FDIC has previously reimbursed the Bank under the loss sharing agreements. The loss sharing provisions of the agreements for commercial and single family residential mortgage loans are in effect for five and ten years, respectively, from the July 29, 2011 acquisition date and the loss recovery provisions for such loans are in effect for eight years and ten years, respectively, from the acquisition date.

On September 15, 2012, Old National acquired IBT in an all stock transaction. IBT was headquartered in Columbus, Indiana and had 17 full-service banking centers serving the South Central Indiana area. Pursuant to the merger agreement, the shareholders of IBT received approximately 6.6 million shares of Old National common stock valued at approximately $88.5 million. Old National assumed assets with a fair value of approximately $906.3 million, including $497.4 million of loans, as well as $784.6 million of deposits. The acquisition strengthened our deposit market share in Columbus, Indiana and south central Indiana market.

On July 12, 2013, Old National acquired 24 bank branches from Bank of America in a cash transaction. Old National paid a deposit premium of 2.94%. The acquisition has doubled Old National’s presence in the South Bend/Elkhart area and provided a logical market extension into southwest Michigan.

Pending Acquisitions

On September 10, 2013, Old National announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire Tower Financial Corporation (“Tower”) through a stock and cash merger. Tower is an Indiana bank holding company with Tower Bank & Trust Company as its wholly-owned subsidiary. Headquartered in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Tower has seven banking centers with approximately $691 million in assets and an additional $743 million in trust assets under management at December 31, 2013. The merger would strengthen Old National’s position as the third largest deposit holder in Indiana. Pursuant to the merger agreement, Tower’s shareholders will receive 1.20 shares of Old National common stock and $6.75 in cash for each share of Tower common stock. As of September 5, 2013, the transaction was valued at approximately $107.7 million. The transaction is subject to approval by federal and state regulatory authorities, as well as the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

On January 8, 2014, Old National announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire United Bancorp, Inc. (“United”) through a stock and cash merger. United is a Michigan bank holding company with United Bank & Trust as its wholly-owned subsidiary. Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, United has eighteen banking centers with approximately $899 million in assets and an additional $670 million in trust assets under management at December 31, 2013. Pursuant to the merger agreement, shareholders of United will receive 0.70 shares of Old National common stock and $2.66 in cash for each share of United common stock. As of January 6, 2014, the transaction was valued at approximately $173.1 million. The transaction is subject to approval by federal and state regulatory authorities and United’s shareholders, as well as the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

COMPETITION

The banking industry and related financial service providers operate in a highly competitive market. Old National competes with financial service providers such as local, regional and national banking institutions, savings and loan associations, credit unions, finance companies, investment brokers, and mortgage banking companies. In addition, Old National’s non-bank services face competition with asset managers and advisory services, money market and mutual fund companies and insurance agencies.

Table of Contents

SUPERVISION AND REGULATION

Old National is subject to extensive regulation under federal and state laws. The regulatory framework is intended primarily for the protection of depositors, federal deposit insurance funds and the banking system as a whole and not for the protection of shareholders and creditors.

Significant elements of the laws and regulations applicable to Old National and its subsidiaries are described below. The description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the statutes, regulations and policies that are described. Also, such statutes, regulations and policies are continually under review by Congress and state legislatures and federal and state regulatory agencies. A change in statutes, regulations or regulatory policies applicable to Old National and its subsidiaries could have a material effect on the business of the Company.

The Dodd-Frank Act. On July 21, 2010, financial regulatory reform legislation entitled the “Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” (the “Dodd-Frank Act”) was signed into law. The Dodd-Frank Act significantly restructured the financial regulatory environment in the United States. The Dodd-Frank Act contains numerous provisions that affect all bank holding companies and banks, including Old National and Old National Bank, some of which are described in more detail below. The scope and impact of many of the Dodd-Frank Act’s provisions will be determined over time as regulations are issued and become effective. While the total impact of the fully implemented Dodd-Frank Act on Old National is not currently known, we expect the impact to be substantial; and it may have an adverse impact on its financial performance and growth opportunities. Provisions in the legislation that affect the payment of interest on demand deposits and interchange fees are likely to increase the costs associated with deposits as well as place limitations on certain revenues those deposits may generate.

The Volcker Rule. Section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Act contains provisions prohibiting proprietary trading and restricting the activities involving private equity and hedge funds (the “Volcker Rule”). Rules implementing the Volcker Rule were adopted in December 2013. Proprietary trading is defined as the trading of securities, derivatives, or futures (or options on any of the foregoing) as principal, where such trading is principally for the purpose of short-term resale, benefiting from actual or expected short-term price movements and realizing short-term arbitrage profits. The rule’s definition of proprietary trading specifically excludes market-making-related activity, certain government issued securities trading and certain risk management activities. Old National and Old National Bank do not engage in any prohibited proprietary trading activities.

The final text of the Volcker Rule contained provisions to the effect that collateralized debt obligations (CDOs), including pooled trust preferred securities, would have to be sold prior to July 15, 2015. The practical implication of this rule provision, which was not expected by the industry, was that those instruments could no longer be accorded “held to maturity” accounting treatment but would have to be switched to “available for sale” accounting, and that all covered CDOs, regardless of the accounting classification, would need to be adjusted to fair value through an other-than-temporary-impairment non-cash charge to earnings. On January 14, 2014, federal banking agencies released an interim final rule regarding the Volcker Rule’s impact on trust preferred CDOs, which included a nonexclusive list of CDOs backed by trust preferred securities that depository institutions will be permitted to continue to hold. All of the trust preferred securities owned by Old National are on this list and held as “available for sale”. Therefore, any unrealized losses associated with these instruments have already impacted our capital and no other-than-temporary-impairment was necessary for such unrealized losses.

Bank Holding Company Regulation. Old National is registered as a bank holding company and has elected to be a financial holding company. It is subject to the supervision of, and regulation by, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (“Federal Reserve”) under the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956, as amended (“BHC Act”). The Federal Reserve has issued regulations under the BHC Act requiring a bank holding company to serve as a source of financial and managerial strength to its subsidiary banks. It is the policy of the Federal Reserve that, pursuant to this requirement, a bank holding company should stand ready to use its resources to provide adequate capital funds to its subsidiary banks during periods of financial stress or adversity. Under this requirement, Old National is expected to commit resources to support Old National Bank, including at times when Old National may not be in a financial position to provide such resources. Any capital loans by a bank holding company to any of its subsidiary banks are subordinate in right of payment to depositors and to certain other indebtedness of such subsidiary banks. In the event of a bank holding company’s bankruptcy, any commitment by the bank holding company to a federal bank regulatory agency to maintain the capital of a subsidiary bank will be assumed by the bankruptcy trustee and entitled to priority of payment.

Table of Contents

The BHC Act requires the prior approval of the Federal Reserve to acquire more than a 5% voting interest of any bank or bank holding company. Additionally, the BHC Act restricts Old National’s non-banking activities to those which are determined by the Federal Reserve to be closely related to banking and a proper incident thereto.

Under the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (“FDICIA”), a bank holding company is required to guarantee the compliance of any insured depository institution subsidiary that may become “undercapitalized” (as defined in FDICIA) with the terms of any capital restoration plan filed by such subsidiary with its appropriate federal bank regulatory agency.

Capital and Liquidity Requirements. Bank holding companies are required to comply with the Federal Reserve’s risk-based capital guidelines. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (“OCC”) have adopted risk-based capital ratio guidelines to which depository institutions under their respective supervision, including Old National Bank, are subject. The guidelines establish a systematic analytical framework that makes regulatory capital requirements more sensitive to differences in risk profiles among banking organizations. Risk-based capital ratios are determined by allocating assets and specified off-balance sheet commitments to four risk-weighted categories, with higher levels of capital being required for the categories perceived as representing greater risk. Old National’s banking affiliate, Old National Bank, exceeded all risk-based minimum capital requirements of the FDIC and OCC as of December 31, 2013. For Old National’s regulatory capital ratios and regulatory requirements as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, see Note 22 to the consolidated financial statements.

The federal regulatory authorities’ current risk-based capital guidelines are based upon the 1988 capital accord of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. The Basel Committee is a committee of central banks and bank regulators from the major industrialized countries that develops broad policy guidelines for use by a country’s regulators in determining appropriate supervisory policies. In December 2010 and January 2011, the Basel Committee published the final texts of reforms on capital and liquidity generally referred to as “Basel III.”

Effective July 2, 2013, the Federal Reserve and the OCC approved final rules known as the “Basel III Capital Rules” substantially revising the risk-based capital and leverage capital requirements applicable to bank holding companies and depository institutions, including Old National and Old National Bank. The Basel III Capital Rules address the components of capital and other issues affecting the numerator in banking institutions’ regulatory capital ratios. Basel III Capital Rules also implement the requirements of Section 939A of the Dodd-Frank Act to remove references to credit ratings from the federal banking agencies’ rules. Certain of the Basel III Capital Rules will come into effect for Old National and Old National Bank on January 1, 2015; these rules are subject to a phase-in period which begins on January 1, 2015.

The Basel III Capital Rules introduce a new capital measure “Common Equity Tier 1” (“CET1”). The rules specify that Tier 1 capital consists of CET1 and “Additional Tier 1 capital” instruments meeting specified requirements. CET1 capital consists of common stock instruments that meet the eligibility criteria in the final rules, retained earnings, accumulated other comprehensive income and common equity Tier 1 minority interest. The rules also define CET1 narrowly by requiring that most adjustments to regulatory capital measures be made to CET1, and not to the other components of capital. They also expand the scope of the adjustments as compared to existing regulations.

When fully phased-in on January 1, 2019, the Basel III Capital Rules will require banking organizations to maintain:

 

    a minimum ratio of CET1 to risk-weighted assets of at least 4.5%, plus a 2.5% “capital conservation buffer” (which is added to the 4.5% CET1 ratio as that buffer is phased-in, effectively resulting in a minimum ratio of CET1 to risk-weighted assets of at least 7.0% upon full implementation);

 

    a minimum ratio of Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets of at least 6.0%, plus the 2.5% capital conservation buffer (which is added to the 6.0% Tier 1 capital ratio as that buffer is phased-in, effectively resulting in a minimum Tier 1 capital ratio of 8.5% upon full implementation);

Table of Contents
    a minimum ratio of total capital (that is, Tier 1 plus Tier 2 capital) to risk-weighted assets of at least 8.0%, plus the 2.5% capital conservation buffer (which is added to the 8.0% total capital ratio as that buffer is phased-in, effectively resulting in a minimum total capital ratio of 10.5% upon full implementation); and

 

    a minimum leverage ratio of 4.0%, calculated as the ratio of Tier 1 capital to adjusted average consolidated assets.

The Basel III Capital Rules also provides for a “countercyclical capital buffer” that is applicable to only certain covered institutions and is not expected to have any current applicability to Old National or Old National Bank.

The aforementioned capital conservation buffer is designed to absorb losses during periods of economic stress. Banking institutions with a ratio of CET1 to risk-weighted assets above the minimum but below the conservation buffer will face limitations on the payment of dividends, common stock repurchases and discretionary cash payments to executive officers based on the amount of the shortfall.

The Basel III Capital Rules provides for a number of deductions from and adjustments to CET1. These include, for example, the requirement that mortgage servicing rights, deferred tax assets dependent upon future taxable income and significant investments in non-consolidated financial entities be deducted from CET1 to the extent that any one such category exceeds 10% of CET1 or all such categories in the aggregate exceed 15% of CET1. Under current capital standards, the effects of accumulated other comprehensive income items included in capital are excluded for the purposes of determining regulatory capital ratios. Under the Basel III Capital Rules, Old National and Old National Bank are given a one-time election (the “Opt-out Election”) to filter certain accumulated other comprehensive income (“AOCI”) components, comparable to the treatment under the current general risk-based capital rule. The AOCI Opt-out Election must be made on the March 31, 2015 Call Report and FR Y-9C for Old National Bank and Old National, respectively.

Implementation of the deductions and other adjustments to CET1 will begin on January 1, 2015 and will be phased-in over a five-year period (20% per year). The implementation of the capital conservation buffer will begin on January 1, 2016 at the 0.625% level and be phased-in over a four-year period (increasing by that amount on each subsequent January 1, until it reaches 2.5% on January 1, 2019).

In addition, the Basel III Capital Rules revise the rules for calculating risk-weighted assets to enhance their risk sensitivity. They establish a new framework under which mortgage-backed securities and other securitization exposures will be subject to risk-weights ranging from 20% to 1,250%. The rules also establish adjusted risk-weights for credit exposures, including multi-family and commercial real estate exposures that are 90 days or more past due or on non-accrual, which will be subject to a 150% risk-weight, except in situations where qualifying collateral and/or guarantees are in place. The existing treatment of residential mortgage exposures will remain subject to either a 50% risk-weight (for prudently underwritten owner-occupied first liens that are current or less than 90 days past due) or a 100% risk-weight (for all other residential mortgage exposures including 90 days or more past due exposures).

Management believes that, as of December 31, 2013, Old National and Old National Bank would meet all capital adequacy requirements under the Basel III Capital Rules on a fully phased-in basis if such requirements were currently effective. Requirements to maintain higher levels of capital or to maintain higher levels of liquid assets could adversely impact the Company’s net income.

The final Basel III Capital Rules are effective for Old National on January 1, 2015. The final rules permit banks with less than $15 billion in assets to continue to treat trust preferred securities as Tier 1 capital. This treatment is permanently grandfathered as Tier 1 capital even if Old National should ever exceed $15 billion assets due to organic growth. Should Old National exceed $15 billion in assets as the result of a merger or acquisition, then the Tier 1 treatment will be phased out, but will still be treated as Tier 2 capital. The final rule also permits banks with less than $250 billion in assets to choose to continue excluding unrealized gains and losses on certain securities holdings for purposes of calculating regulatory capital. Old National must make this choice in the first quarter of 2015. The rules limit a banking organization’s capital distributions and certain discretionary bonus payments if the banking organization does not hold a “capital conservation buffer” consisting of a specified amount of CET1 capital in addition to the amount necessary to meet its minimum risk-based capital requirements.

Historically, the regulation and monitoring of bank and bank holding company liquidity has been addressed as a supervisory matter, without minimum required formulaic measures. The Basel III liquidity framework requires banks and bank holding companies to measure their liquidity against specific liquidity tests that, although similar in some respects to liquidity measures historically applied by banks and regulators for management and supervisory purposes, going forward would be required by regulation. One test, referred to as the liquidity coverage ratio (“LCR”), is designed to ensure that the banking entity maintains an adequate level of unencumbered high-quality liquid assets equal to the entity’s expected net cash outflow for a 30-day time horizon (or, if greater, 25% of its expected total cash outflow) under an acute liquidity stress scenario. The other test, referred to as the net stable funding ratio (“NSFR”), is designed to promote more medium- and long-term funding of the assets and activities of banking entities over a one-year time horizon. These requirements will incent banking entities to increase their holdings of U.S. Treasury securities and other sovereign debt as a component of assets and increase the use of long-term debt as a funding source. The Basel III liquidity framework contemplates that the LCR was subject to an observation period continuing through mid-2013 and, subject to any revisions resulting from the analyses conducted and data collected during the observation period, will be implemented as a minimum standard on January 1, 2015, with a phase-in period ending January 1, 2019. Similarly, it contemplates that the NSFR will be subject to an observation period through mid-2016 and, subject to any revisions resulting from the analyses conducted and data collected during the observation period, implemented as a minimum standard by January 1, 2018. These new standards are subject to further rulemaking and their terms may well change before implementation. The federal banking agencies have not proposed rules implementing the Basel III liquidity framework and have not determined to what extent they will apply to U.S. banks that are not large, internationally active banks.

Management believes that, as of December 31, 2013, Old National Bank would meet the LCR requirement under the Basel III on a fully phased-in basis if such requirements were currently effective. Management’s evaluation of the impact of the NSFR requirement is ongoing as of December 31, 2013. Requirements to maintain higher levels of liquid assets could adversely impact the Company’s net income.

Prompt Corrective Action Regulations. The Federal Deposit Insurance Act (the “FDIA”) requires, among other things, federal bank regulatory authorities to take “prompt corrective action” with respect to banks which do not meet minimum capital requirements. Under current prompt corrective action regulations, a bank will be (i) “well capitalized” if the institution has a total risk-based capital ratio of 10.0% or greater, a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 6.0% or greater, and a leverage ratio of 5.0% or greater, and is not subject to any order or written directive by any such regulatory authority to meet and maintain a specific capital level for any capital measure; (ii) “adequately capitalized” if the institution has a total risk-based capital ratio of 8.0% or greater, a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 4.0% or greater, and a leverage ratio of 4.0% or greater and is not “well capitalized”; (iii) “undercapitalized” if the institution has a total risk-based capital ratio that is less than 8.0%, a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of less than 4.0% or a leverage ratio of less than 4.0%; (iv) “significantly undercapitalized” if the institution has a total risk-based capital ratio of less than 6.0%, a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of less than 3.0% or a leverage ratio of less than 3.0%; and (v) “critically undercapitalized” if the institution’s tangible equity is equal to or less than 2.0% of average quarterly tangible assets. An institution may be downgraded to, or deemed to be in, a capital category that is lower than indicated by its capital ratios if it is determined to be in an unsafe or unsound condition or if it receives an unsatisfactory examination rating with respect to certain matters. A bank’s capital category is determined solely for the purpose of applying prompt corrective action regulations, and the capital category may not constitute an accurate representation of the bank’s overall financial condition or prospects for other purposes.

The FDIA generally prohibits a depository institution from making any capital distributions (including payment of a dividend) or paying any management fee to its parent holding company if the depository institution would thereafter be “undercapitalized.” “Undercapitalized” institutions are subject to growth limitations and are required to submit a capital restoration plan. The agencies may not accept such a plan without determining, among other things, that the plan is based on realistic assumptions and is likely to succeed in restoring the depository institution’s capital. In addition, for a capital restoration plan to be acceptable, the depository institution’s parent holding company must guarantee that the institution will comply with such capital restoration plan. The bank holding company must also provide appropriate assurances of performance. The aggregate liability of the parent holding company is limited to the lesser of (i) an amount equal to 5.0% of the depository institution’s total assets at the time it became undercapitalized and (ii) the amount which is necessary (or would have been necessary) to bring the institution into compliance with all capital standards applicable with respect to such institution as of the time it fails to comply with the plan. If a depository institution fails to submit an acceptable plan, it is treated as if it is “significantly undercapitalized.”

“Significantly undercapitalized” depository institutions may be subject to a number of requirements and restrictions, including orders to sell sufficient voting stock to become “adequately capitalized,” requirements to reduce total assets, and cessation of receipt of deposits from correspondent banks. “Critically undercapitalized” institutions are subject to the appointment of a receiver or conservator.

The Basel III Capital Rules revised the “prompt corrective action” regulations pursuant to Section 38 of the FDIA, by

 

    introducing a CET1 ratio requirement at each level (other than critically undercapitalized), with the required CET1 ratio being 6.5% for well-capitalized status;

 

    increasing the minimum Tier 1 capital ratio requirement for each category, with the minimum Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio for well-capitalized status being 8.0% (as compared to the current 6.0%); and

 

    eliminating the current provision that provides that a bank with a composite supervisory rating of 1 may have a 3.0% leverage ratio and still be well-capitalized.

Management believes that, as of December 31, 2013, Old National Bank was “well capitalized” based on the aforementioned existing ratios and the ratios as modified by the Basel III Capital Rules.

Deposit Insurance. Substantially all of the deposits of Old National Bank are insured up to applicable limits by the Deposit Insurance Fund (“DIF”) of the FDIC and Old National Bank is subject to deposit insurance assessments to maintain the DIF. Deposit insurance assessments are based on average consolidated total assets minus average tangible equity. Under the FDIC’s risk-based assessment system, insured institutions with less than $10 billion in assets, such as Old National Bank, are assigned to one of four risk categories based on supervisory evaluations, regulatory capital level, and certain other factors, with less risky institutions paying lower assessments. An institution’s assessment rate depends upon the category to which it is assigned and certain other factors.

The initial base assessment rate ranges from 5 to 35 basis points on an annualized basis. After the effect of potential base-rate adjustments, the total base assessment rate could range from 2.5 to 45 basis points on an annualized basis. As the DIF reserve ratio grows, the rate schedule will be adjusted downward. Additionally, an institution must pay an additional premium equal to 50 basis points on every dollar (above 3% of an institution’s Tier 1 capital) of long-term, unsecured debt held that was issued by another insured depository institution (excluding debt guaranteed under the Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program). The FDIC has the authority to raise or lower assessment rates, subject to limits, and to impose special additional assessments.

In October 2010, the FDIC adopted a new DIF restoration plan to ensure that the DIF reserve ratio reaches 1.35% by December 31, 2020, as required by the Dodd-Frank Act. At least semi-annually, the FDIC will update its loss and income projections for the fund and, if needed, will increase or decrease assessment rates, following notice-and-comment rulemaking if required.

The temporary unlimited deposit insurance coverage for non-interest-bearing transaction accounts that became effective on December 31, 2010 pursuant to rules adopted in accordance with the Dodd-Frank Act terminated on December 31, 2012. These accounts are now insured under the general deposit insurance coverage rules of the FDIC.

Under the FDIA, the FDIC may terminate deposit insurance upon a finding that the institution has engaged in unsafe and unsound practices, is in an unsafe or unsound condition to continue operations, or has violated any applicable law, regulation, rule, order or condition imposed by the FDIC

Safety and Soundness Regulations In accordance with the FDIA, the federal banking agencies adopted guidelines establishing general standards relating to internal controls, information systems, internal audit systems, loan documentation, credit underwriting, interest rate risk exposure, asset growth, asset quality, earnings, compensation, fees and benefits. In general, the guidelines require, among other things, appropriate systems and practices to identify and manage the risks and exposures specified in the guidelines. The guidelines prohibit excessive compensation as an unsafe and unsound practice and describe compensation as excessive when the amounts paid are unreasonable or disproportionate to the services performed by an executive officer, employee, director or principal shareholder. In addition, regulations adopted by the federal banking agencies authorize the agencies to require that an institution that has been given notice that it is not satisfying any of such safety and soundness standards to submit a compliance plan. If, after being so notified, the institution fails to submit an acceptable compliance plan or fails in any material respect to implement an accepted compliance plan, the agency must issue an order directing corrective actions and may issue an order directing other actions of the types to which an undercapitalized institution is subject under the “prompt corrective action” provisions of FDIA. If the institution fails to comply with such an order, the agency may seek to enforce such order in judicial proceedings and to impose civil money penalties.

Incentive Compensation. The Dodd-Frank Act requires the federal bank regulatory agencies and the SEC to establish joint regulations or guidelines prohibiting incentive-based payment arrangements at specified regulated entities, such as Old National and Old National Bank, having at least $1 billion in total assets that encourage inappropriate risks by providing an executive officer, employee, director or principal shareholder with excessive compensation, fees, or benefits or that could lead to material financial loss to the entity. In addition, these regulators must establish regulations or guidelines requiring enhanced disclosure to regulators of incentive-based compensation arrangements. The agencies proposed such regulations in April 2011, but the regulations have not been finalized. If the regulations are adopted in the form initially proposed, they will impose limitations on the manner in which Old National may structure compensation for its executives.

In June 2010, the Federal Reserve Board, OCC and FDIC issued comprehensive final guidance on incentive compensation policies intended to ensure that the incentive compensation policies of banking organizations do not undermine the safety and soundness of such organizations by encouraging excessive risk-taking. The guidance, which covers all employees that have the ability to materially affect the risk profile of an organization, either individually or as part of a group, is based upon the key principles that a banking organization’s incentive compensation arrangements should (i) provide incentives that do not encourage risk-taking beyond the organization’s ability to effectively identify and manage risks, (ii) be compatible with effective internal controls and risk management, and (iii) be supported by strong corporate governance, including active and effective oversight by the organization’s board of directors. These three principles are incorporated into the proposed joint compensation regulations under the Dodd-Frank Act, discussed above.

The Federal Reserve Board will review, as part of the regular, risk-focused examination process, the incentive compensation arrangements of banking organizations, such as Old National, that are not “large, complex banking organizations.” These reviews will be tailored to each organization based on the scope and complexity of the organization’s activities and the prevalence of incentive compensation arrangements. The findings of the supervisory initiatives will be included in reports of examination. Deficiencies will be incorporated into the organization’s supervisory ratings, which can affect the organization’s ability to make acquisitions and take other actions.

Enforcement actions may be taken against a banking organization if its incentive compensation arrangements, or related risk-management control or governance processes, pose a risk to the organization’s safety and soundness and the organization is not taking prompt and effective measures to correct the deficiencies.

Loans to One Borrower. Old National Bank generally may not make loans or extend credit to a single or related group of borrowers in excess of 15% of unimpaired capital and surplus. An additional amount may be loaned, up to 10% of unimpaired capital and surplus, if the loan is secured by readily marketable collateral, which generally does not include real estate. As of December 31, 2013, Old National Bank was in compliance with the loans-to-one-borrower limitations.

Depositor Preference. The FDIA provides that, in the event of the “liquidation or other resolution” of an insured depository institution, the claims of depositors of the institution, including the claims of the FDIC as subrogee of insured depositors, and certain claims for administrative expenses of the FDIC as a receiver, will have priority over other general unsecured claims against the institution. If an insured depository institution fails, insured and uninsured depositors, along with the FDIC, will have priority in payment ahead of unsecured, non-deposit creditors, including depositors whose deposits are payable only outside of the United States and the parent bank holding company, with respect to any extensions of credit they have made to such insured depository institution.

Community Reinvestment Act. The Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 (“CRA”) requires depository institutions to assist in meeting the credit needs of their market areas consistent with safe and sound banking practice. Under the CRA, each depository institution is required to help meet the credit needs of its market areas by, among other things, providing credit to low- and moderate-income individuals and communities. Depository institutions are periodically examined for compliance with the CRA and are assigned ratings that must be publicly disclosed. In order for a financial holding company to commence any new activity permitted by the BHC Act, or to acquire any company engaged in any new activity permitted by the BHC Act, each insured depository institution subsidiary of the financial holding company must have received a rating of at least “satisfactory” in its most recent examination under the CRA. Furthermore, banking regulators take into account CRA ratings when considering approval of certain applications. Old National Bank received a rating of “outstanding” in its most recent CRA exam for the period ended December 31, 2012.

Financial Privacy. The federal banking regulators adopted rules that limit the ability of banks and other financial institutions to disclose non-public information about consumers to nonaffiliated third parties. These limitations require disclosure of privacy policies to consumers and, in some circumstances, allow consumers to prevent disclosure of certain personal information to a nonaffiliated third party. These regulations affect how consumer information is transmitted through diversified financial companies and conveyed to outside vendors.

Old National Bank is also subject to regulatory guidelines establishing standards for safeguarding customer information. These guidelines describe the federal banking agencies’ expectations for the creation, implementation and maintenance of an information security program, which would include administrative, technical and physical safeguards appropriate to the size and complexity of the institution and the nature and scope of its activities. The standards set forth in the guidelines are intended to ensure the security and confidentiality of customer records and information, protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of such records and protect against unauthorized access to or use of such records or information that could result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any customer.

Anti-Money Laundering and the USA Patriot Act. A major focus of governmental policy on financial institutions in recent years has been aimed at combating money laundering and terrorist financing. The USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 (the “USA Patriot Act”) substantially broadened the scope of United States anti-money laundering laws and regulations by imposing significant new compliance and due diligence obligations of financial institutions, creating new crimes and penalties and expanding the extra-territorial jurisdiction of the United States. Failure of a financial institution to maintain and implement adequate programs to combat money laundering and terrorist financing, or to comply with all of the relevant laws or regulations, could have serious legal and reputational consequences for the institution, including causing applicable bank regulatory authorities not to approve merger or acquisition transactions when regulatory approval is required or to prohibit such transactions even if approval is not required.

Office of Foreign Assets Control Regulation. The United States has imposed economic sanctions that affect transactions with designated foreign countries, nationals and others which are administered by the U.S. Treasury Department Office of Foreign Assets Control. Failure to comply with these sanctions could have serious legal and reputational consequences, including causing applicable bank regulatory authorities not to approve merger or acquisition transactions when regulatory approval is required or to prohibit such transactions even if approval is not required.

Transactions with Affiliates. Transactions between Old National Bank and its affiliates are regulated by the Federal Reserve under sections 23A and 23B of the Federal Reserve Act and related regulations. These regulations limit the types and amounts of covered transactions engaged in by Old National Bank and generally require those transactions to be on an arm’s-length basis. The term “affiliate” is defined to mean any company that controls or is under common control with Old National Bank and includes Old National and its non-bank subsidiaries. “Covered transactions” include a loan or extension of credit, as well as a purchase of securities issued by an affiliate, a purchase of assets (unless otherwise exempted by the Federal Reserve) from the affiliate, certain derivative transactions that create a credit exposure to an affiliate, the acceptance of securities issued by the affiliate as collateral for a loan, and the issuance of a guarantee, acceptance or letter of credit on behalf of an affiliate. In general, these regulations require that any such transaction by Old National Bank (or its subsidiaries) with an affiliate must be secured by designated amounts of specified collateral and must be limited to certain thresholds on an individual and aggregate basis.

Table of Contents

Federal law also limits Old National Bank’s authority to extend credit to its directors, executive officers and 10% shareholders, as well as to entities controlled by such persons. Among other things, extensions of credit to insiders are required to be made on terms that are substantially the same as, and follow credit underwriting procedures that are not less stringent than, those prevailing for comparable transactions with unaffiliated persons. Also, the terms of such extensions of credit may not involve more than the normal risk of repayment or present other unfavorable features and may not exceed certain limitations on the amount of credit extended to such persons, individually and in the aggregate, which limits are based, in part, on the amount of Old National Bank’s capital.

Federal Home Loan Bank System. Old National Bank is a member of the Federal Home Loan Bank System, which consists of 12 regional Federal Home Loan Banks. The Federal Home Loan Bank System provides a central credit facility primarily for member institutions. As a member of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis (“FHLBI”), Old National Bank is required to acquire and hold shares of capital stock of the FHLBI in an amount at least equal to the sum of the membership stock purchase requirement, determined on an annual basis at the end of each calendar year, and the activity-based stock purchase requirement, determined on a daily basis. For Old National Bank, the membership stock purchase requirement is 1.0% of the Mortgage-Related Assets, as defined by the FHLBI, which consists principally of residential mortgage loans and mortgage-backed securities, held by Old National Bank. The activity-based stock purchase requirement is equal to the sum of: (1) a specified percentage ranging from 2.0% to 5.0%, which for Old National Bank is 5.0%, of outstanding borrowings from the FHLBI; (2) a specified percentage ranging from 0.0% to 5.0%, which for Old National Bank is 3.0%, of the outstanding principal balance of Acquired Member Assets, as defined by the FHLBI, and delivery commitments for Acquired Member Assets; (3) a specified dollar amount related to certain off-balance sheet items, [which for Old National Bank is inapplicable]; and (4) a specified percentage ranging from 0.0% to 5.0%, [which for Old National Bank is inapplicable], of the carrying value on the FHLBI’s balance sheet of derivative contracts between the FHLBI and Old National Bank. The FHLBI can adjust the specified percentages and dollar amount from time to time within the ranges established by the FHLBI capital plan. As of December 31, 2013, Old National Bank was in compliance with the minimum stock ownership requirement.

Federal Reserve System. Federal Reserve regulations require depository institutions to maintain cash reserves against their transaction accounts (primarily NOW and demand deposit accounts). A reserve of 3% is to be maintained against aggregate transaction accounts between $12.4 million and $79.5 million (subject to adjustment by the Federal Reserve) plus a reserve of 10% (subject to adjustment by the Federal Reserve between 8% and 14%) against that portion of total transaction accounts in excess of $79.5 million. The first $12.4 million of otherwise reservable balances (subject to adjustment by the Federal Reserve) is exempt from the reserve requirements. Old National Bank is in compliance with the foregoing requirements.

Other Regulations. Old National Bank is subject to federal consumer protection statutes and regulations promulgated under those laws, including, but not limited to, the:

 

    Truth-In-Lending Act, governing disclosures of credit terms to consumer borrowers;

 

    Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, requiring financial institutions to provide certain information about home mortgage and refinanced loans;

 

    Fair Credit Reporting Act, governing the provision of consumer information to credit reporting agencies and the use of consumer information;

 

    Fair Debt Collection Act, governing the manner in which consumer debts may be collected by collection agencies; and

 

    Electronic Funds Transfer Act, governing automatic deposits to and withdrawals from deposit accounts and customers’ rights and liabilities arising from the use of automated teller machines and other electronic banking services.

The Dodd-Frank Act created a new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”), which took over responsibility for enforcing the principal federal consumer protection laws, such as the Truth in Lending Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act and the Truth in Saving Act, among others, on July 21, 2011. Institutions that have assets of $10 billion or less will continue to be supervised and examined in this area by their primary federal regulators (in the case of the Bank, the OCC). Old National Bank currently has less than $10 billion in assets, but if its pending acquisitions are approved, Old National Bank’s assets will exceed $10 billion and be subject to the regulation of the CFPB. The Act also gives the CFPB expanded data collecting powers for fair lending purposes for both small business and mortgage loans, as well as expanded authority to prevent unfair, deceptive and abusive practices. The Dodd-Frank Act also weakened the federal preemption of state laws that had applied to national banks. As a result it is likely Old National Bank will be subject to a wider array of State laws going forward.

Table of Contents

In January 2013, the CFPB issued a series of final rules related to mortgage loan origination and mortgage loan servicing. In particular, on January 10, 2013, the CFPB issued a final rule implementing the ability-to-repay and qualified mortgage (QM) provisions of the Truth in Lending Act, as amended by the Dodd-Frank Act (the “QM Rule”). The ability-to-repay provision requires creditors to make reasonable, good faith determinations that borrowers are able to repay their mortgages before extending the credit based on a number of factors and consideration of financial information about the borrower from reasonably reliable third-party documents. Under the Dodd-Frank Act and the QM Rule, loans meeting the definition of “qualified mortgage” are entitled to a presumption that the lender satisfied the ability-to-repay requirements. The presumption is a conclusive presumption/safe harbor for prime loans meeting the QM requirements, and a rebuttable presumption for higher-priced/subprime loans meeting the QM requirements. The definition of a “qualified mortgage” incorporates the statutory requirements, such as not allowing negative amortization or terms longer than 30 years. The QM Rule also adds an explicit maximum 43% debt-to-income ratio for borrowers if the loan is to meet the QM definition, though some mortgages that meet GSE, FHA and VA underwriting guidelines may, for a period not to exceed seven years, meet the QM definition without being subject to the 43% debt-to-income limits. The QM Rule became effective January 10, 2014.

We are still evaluating the rules recently issued by the CFPB to determine if they will have any long-term impact on our mortgage loan origination and servicing activities. Compliance with these rules will likely increase our overall regulatory compliance costs.

Dividend Limitation. Old National Bank is subject to the provisions of the National Bank Act, is supervised, regulated and examined by the OCC, and is subject to the rules and regulations of the OCC, Federal Reserve and the FDIC. A substantial portion of Old National’s cash revenue is derived from dividends paid to it by Old National Bank. These dividends are subject to various legal and regulatory restrictions as summarized in Note 22 to the consolidated financial statements.

Legislative and Regulatory Initiatives. From time to time, various legislative and regulatory initiatives are introduced in Congress and state legislatures, as well as by regulatory agencies. Such initiatives may include proposals to expand or contract the powers of bank holding companies and depository institutions or proposals to substantially change the financial institution regulatory system. Such legislation could change banking statutes and the operating environment of Old National in substantial and unpredictable ways. If enacted, such legislation could increase or decrease the cost of doing business, limit or expand permissible activities or affect the competitive balance among banks, savings associations, credit unions, and other financial institutions. Old National cannot predict whether any such legislation will be enacted, and, if enacted, the effect that it, or any implementing regulations, would have on the financial condition or results of operations of Old National. A change in statutes, regulations or regulatory policies applicable to Old National or any of its subsidiaries could have a material effect on Old National’s business, financial condition and results of operations.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

Old National’s business could be harmed by any of the risks noted below. In analyzing whether to make or to continue an investment in Old National, investors should consider, among other factors, the following:

Risks Related to the Banking Industry

Old National operates in a highly regulated environment, and changes in laws and regulations to which Old National is subject may adversely affect Old National’s results of operations.

Old National operates in a highly regulated environment and is subject to extensive regulation, supervision and examination by, among others, the OCC, the FDIC, the Federal Reserve and the State of Indiana. Such regulation and supervision of the activities in which an institution may engage is primarily intended for the protection of the depositors and federal deposit insurance funds. In addition, the Treasury has certain supervisory and oversight duties and responsibilities under EESA and the CPP. See “Business - Supervision and Regulation” herein. Applicable laws and regulations may change, and such changes may adversely affect Old National’s business. The Dodd-Frank Act, enacted in July 2010, mandated the most wide-ranging overhaul of financial industry regulation in decades. This legislation, among other things, established the CFPB with broad authority to administer and enforce a new federal regulatory framework of consumer financial regulation, including consumer mortgage banking. Many aspects of the Dodd-Frank Act are subject to rulemaking and will take effect over several years, making it difficult to anticipate the overall financial impact on Old National. Nevertheless, Old National expects the Dodd-Frank Act, including current and future rules implementing its provisions and the interpretations of those rules, will have a detrimental impact on revenues and expenses, require Old National to change certain of its business practices, intensify the regulatory supervision of Old National and the financial services industry, increase Old National’s capital requirements and impose additional assessments and costs on Old National. In addition, certain provisions in the legislation that do not currently apply to Old National will become effective as Old National grows and its consolidated assets increase to over $10 billion. The CFPB has examination and enforcement authority over all banks and savings institutions with more than $10 billion in assets.

Regulatory authorities also have extensive discretion in connection with their supervisory and enforcement activities, including but not limited to the imposition of restrictions on the operation of an institution, the classification of assets by the institution, the adequacy of an institution’s Bank Secrecy Act/Anti Money Laundering program management, and the adequacy of an institution’s allowance for loan losses. Any change in such regulation and oversight, whether in the form of restrictions on activities, regulatory policy, regulations, or legislation, including but not limited to changes in the regulations governing institutions, could have a material impact on Old National and its operations.

Changes in economic or political conditions could adversely affect Old National’s earnings, as the ability of Old National’s borrowers to repay loans, and the value of the collateral securing such loans, decline.

Old National’s success depends, to a certain extent, upon economic or political conditions, local and national, as well as governmental monetary policies. Conditions such as recession, unemployment, changes in interest rates, inflation, money supply and other factors beyond Old National’s control may adversely affect its asset quality, deposit levels and loan demand and, therefore, Old National’s earnings. Because Old National has a significant amount of commercial real estate loans, decreases in real estate values could adversely affect the value of property used as collateral. Adverse changes in the economy may also have a negative effect on the ability of Old National’s borrowers to make timely repayments of their loans, which would have an adverse impact on Old National’s earnings. In addition, substantially all of Old National’s loans are to individuals and businesses in Old National’s market area. Consequently, any economic decline in Old National’s primary market areas, which include Indiana, western Kentucky, southeast Illinois, and southwest Michigan, could have an adverse impact on Old National’s earnings.

Changes in interest rates could adversely affect Old National’s results of operations and financial condition.

Old National’s earnings depend substantially on Old National’s interest rate spread, which is the difference between (i) the rates Old National earns on loans, securities and other earning assets and (ii) the interest rates Old National pays on deposits and other borrowings. These rates are highly sensitive to many factors beyond Old National’s control, including general economic conditions and the policies of various governmental and regulatory authorities. If market interest rates rise, Old National will have competitive pressures to increase the rates that Old National pays on deposits, which could result in a decrease of Old National’s net interest income. If market interest rates decline, Old National could experience fixed rate loan prepayments and higher investment portfolio cash flows, resulting in a lower yield on earnings assets.

Old National continually encounters technological change.

The financial services industry is continually undergoing rapid technological change with frequent introductions of new technology-driven products and services. The effective use of technology increases efficiency and enables financial institutions to better serve customers and to reduce costs. Old National’s future success depends, in part, upon its ability to address customer needs by using technology to provide products and services that will satisfy customer demands, as well as to create additional efficiencies in Old National’s operations. Old National may not be able to effectively implement new technology-driven products and services or be successful in marketing these products and services to its customers. Failure to successfully keep pace with technological change affecting the financial services industry could negatively affect Old National’s growth, revenue and profit.

Changes in consumer use of banks and changes in consumer spending and savings habits could adversely affect Old National’s financial results.

Technology and other changes now allow many customers to complete financial transactions without using banks. For example, consumers can pay bills and transfer funds directly without going through a bank. This process of eliminating banks as intermediaries could result in the loss of fee income, as well as the loss of customer deposits and income generated from those deposits. In addition, changes in consumer spending and savings habits could adversely affect Old National’s operations, and Old National may be unable to timely develop competitive new products and services in response to these changes that are accepted by new and existing customers.

Our earnings could be adversely impacted by incidences of fraud and compliance failure.

Financial institutions are inherently exposed to fraud risk. A fraud can be perpetrated by a customer of Old National, an employee, a vendor, or members of the general public. We are most subject to fraud and compliance risk in connection with the origination of loans, ACH transactions, ATM transactions and checking transactions. Our largest fraud risk, associated with the origination of loans, includes the intentional misstatement of information in property appraisals or other underwriting documentation provided to us by third parties. Compliance risk is the risk that loans are not originated in compliance with applicable laws and regulations and our standards. There can be no assurance that we can prevent or detect acts of fraud or violation of law or our compliance standards by the third parties that we deal with. Repeated incidences of fraud or compliance failures would adversely impact the performance of our loan portfolio.

Risks Related to Old National’s Business

Acquisitions may not produce revenue enhancements or cost savings at levels or within timeframes originally anticipated and may result in unforeseen integration difficulties and dilution to existing shareholder value.

We have acquired, and may continue to acquire, other financial institutions or parts of those institutions in the future, and we may engage in de novo branch expansion. We may also consider and enter into new lines of business or offer new products or services.

We may incur substantial costs to expand, and we can give no assurance such expansion will result in the levels of profits we seek. There can be no assurance that integration efforts for any mergers or acquisitions will be successful. Also, we may issue equity securities in connection with acquisitions, which could cause ownership and economic dilution to our current shareholders. There is no assurance that, following any mergers or acquisitions, our integration efforts will be successful or that, after giving effect to the acquisition, we will achieve profits comparable to, or better than, our historical experience.

 

18


Table of Contents

Acquisitions and mergers involve a number of expenses and risks, including:

 

    the time and costs associated with identifying potential new markets, as well as acquisition and merger targets;

 

    the estimates and judgments used to evaluate credit, operations, management and market risks with respect to the target institution may not be accurate;

 

    the time and costs of evaluating new markets, hiring experienced local management and opening new offices, and the time lags between these activities and the generation of sufficient assets and deposits to support the costs of the expansion;

 

    our ability to finance an acquisition and possible dilution to our existing shareholders;

 

    the diversion of our management’s attention to the negotiation of a transaction, and the integration of the operations and personnel of the combined businesses;

 

    entry into new markets where we lack experience;

 

    the introduction of new products and services into our business;

 

    the incurrence and possible impairment of goodwill associated with an acquisition and possible adverse short-term effects on our results of operations;

 

    closing delays and increased expenses related to the resolution of lawsuits filed by shareholders of targets; and

 

    the risk of loss of key employees and customers.

Old National must generally receive federal regulatory approval before it can acquire a bank or bank holding company. Old National cannot be certain when or if, or on what terms and conditions, any required regulatory approvals will be granted. Old National may be required to sell banks or branches as a condition to receiving regulatory approval.

Future acquisitions could be material to Old National and it may issue additional shares of stock to pay for those acquisitions, which would dilute current shareholder’s ownership interests.

Economic conditions have affected and could continue to adversely affect our revenues and profits.

Old National’s financial performance generally, and in particular the ability of borrowers to pay interest on and repay principal of outstanding loans and the value of collateral securing those loans, as well as demand for loans and other products and services that Old National offers, is highly dependent upon the business environment in the markets where Old National operates and in the United States as a whole. A favorable business environment is generally characterized by, among other factors, economic growth, efficient capital markets, low inflation, low unemployment, high business and investor confidence, and strong business earnings. Unfavorable or uncertain economic and market conditions can be caused by declines in economic growth, business activity or investor or business confidence; limitations on the availability or increases in the cost of credit and capital; increases in inflation or interest rates; high unemployment, natural disasters, terrorist acts or a combination of these or other factors.

Although the domestic economy continued its modest recovery in 2013, the sustained high unemployment rate and the lengthy duration of unemployment have directly impaired consumer finances and pose risks to the financial services industry. There is continued stress in the consumer real estate market; and certain commercial real estate markets continue to pose challenges to domestic economic performance and the financial services industry. Unless and until the economy, loan demand, credit quality and consumer confidence improve, it is unlikely that revenues will increase significantly, and may be reduced further.

If Old National’s actual loan losses exceed Old National’s allowance for loan losses, Old National’s net income will decrease.

Old National makes various assumptions and judgments about the collectibility of Old National’s loan portfolio, including the creditworthiness of Old National’s borrowers and the value of the real estate and other assets serving as collateral for the repayment of Old National’s loans. Despite Old National’s underwriting and monitoring practices, the effect of the declining economy could negatively impact the ability of Old National’s borrowers to repay loans in a timely manner and could also negatively impact collateral values. As a result, Old National may experience significant loan losses that could have a material adverse effect on Old National’s operating results. Since Old National must use assumptions regarding individual loans and the economy, Old National’s current allowance for loan losses may not be sufficient to cover actual loan losses. Old National’s assumptions may not anticipate the severity or duration of the current credit cycle; and Old National may need to significantly increase Old National’s provision for losses on loans if one or more of Old National’s larger loans or credit relationships becomes delinquent or if Old National expands its commercial real estate and commercial lending. In addition, federal and state regulators periodically review Old National’s allowance for loan losses and may require Old National to increase the provision for loan losses or recognize loan charge-offs. Material additions to Old National’s allowance would materially decrease Old National’s net income. There can be no assurance that Old National’s monitoring procedures and policies will reduce certain lending risks or that Old National’s allowance for loan losses will be adequate to cover actual losses.

Old National’s loan portfolio includes loans with a higher risk of loss.

Old National Bank originates commercial real estate loans, commercial loans, agricultural real estate loans, agricultural loans, consumer loans, and residential real estate loans primarily within Old National’s market areas. Commercial real estate, commercial, consumer, and agricultural loans may expose a lender to greater credit risk than loans secured by residential real estate because the collateral securing these loans may not be sold as easily as residential real estate. These loans also have greater credit risk than residential real estate for the following reasons:

 

    Commercial Real Estate Loans. Repayment is dependent upon income being generated in amounts sufficient to cover operating expenses and debt service.

 

    Commercial Loans. Repayment is dependent upon the successful operation of the borrower’s business.

 

    Consumer Loans. Consumer loans (such as personal lines of credit) are collateralized, if at all, with assets that may not provide an adequate source of payment of the loan due to depreciation, damage, or loss.

 

    Agricultural Loans. Repayment is dependent upon the successful operation of the business, which is greatly dependent on many things outside the control of either Old National Bank or the borrowers. These factors include weather, commodity prices, and interest rates.

Our wholesale funding sources may prove insufficient to replace deposits or support our future growth.

As a part of our liquidity management, we use a number of funding sources in addition to core deposit growth and repayments and maturities of loans and investments. These sources include brokered certificates of deposit, repurchase agreements, and federal funds purchased. Negative operating results or changes in industry conditions could lead to an inability to replace these additional funding sources at maturity. Our financial flexibility could be constrained if we are unable to maintain our access to funding or if adequate financing is not available to accommodate future growth at acceptable interest rates. Finally, if we are required to rely more heavily on more expensive funding sources to support future growth, our revenues may not increase proportionately to cover our costs. In this case, our results of operations and financial condition would be negatively affected.

Our accounting estimates and risk management processes rely on analytical and forecasting models

The processes that we use to estimate probable loan losses and to measure the fair value of financial instruments, as well as the processes used to estimate the effects of changing interest rates and other market measures on our financial condition and results of operations, depend upon the use of analytical and forecasting models. These models reflect assumptions that may not be accurate, particularly in times of market stress or other unforeseen circumstances. Even if these assumptions are adequate, the models may prove to be inadequate or inaccurate because of other flaws in their design or their implementation. If our models for determining interest rate risk and asset-liability management are inadequate, we may incur increased or unexpected losses upon changes in market interest rates or other market measures. If our models for determining probable loan losses are inadequate, the allowance for loan losses may not be sufficient to support future charge-offs. If our models to measure the fair value of financial instruments are inadequate, the fair value of such financial instruments may fluctuate unexpectedly or may not accurately reflect what we could realize upon sale or settlement of such financial instruments. Any such failure in our analytical or forecasting models could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

If Old National forecloses on collateral property, Old National may be subject to the increased costs associated with the ownership of real property, resulting in reduced revenues.

Old National may have to foreclose on collateral property to protect Old National’s investment and may thereafter own and operate such property, in which case Old National will be exposed to the risks inherent in the ownership of real estate. The amount that Old National, as a mortgagee, may realize after a default is dependent upon factors outside of Old National’s control, including, but not limited to: (i) general or local economic conditions; (ii) neighborhood values; (iii) interest rates; (iv) real estate tax rates; (v) operating expenses of the mortgaged properties; (vi) environmental remediation liabilities; (vii) ability to obtain and maintain adequate occupancy of the properties; (viii) zoning laws; (ix) governmental rules, regulations and fiscal policies; and (x) acts of God. Certain expenditures associated with the ownership of real estate, principally real estate taxes, insurance, and maintenance costs, may adversely affect the income from the real estate. Therefore, the cost of operating real property may exceed the income earned from such property, and Old National may have to advance funds in order to protect Old National’s investment, or Old National may be required to dispose of the real property at a loss. The foregoing expenditures and costs could adversely affect Old National’s ability to generate revenues, resulting in reduced levels of profitability.

Old National operates in an extremely competitive market, and Old National’s business will suffer if Old National is unable to compete effectively.

In our market area, Old National encounters significant competition from other commercial banks, savings and loan associations, credit unions, mortgage banking firms, consumer finance companies securities brokerage firms, insurance companies, money market mutual funds and other financial intermediaries. Our competitors may have substantially greater resources and lending limits than Old National does and may offer services that Old National does not or cannot provide. Old National’s profitability depends upon Old National’s continued ability to compete successfully in Old National’s market area.

Our business could suffer if we fail to attract and retain skilled people.

Our success depends, in large part, on its ability to attract and retain key people. Competition for the best people in most activities we engage in can be intense. We may not be able to hire the best people or to keep them. The loss of any of our key personnel or an inability to continue to attract, retain and motivate key personnel could adversely affect our business.

A breach in the security of our systems could disrupt our business, result in the disclosure of confidential information, damage our reputation and create significant financial and legal exposure.

Although we devote significant resources to maintain and regularly upgrade our systems and processes that are designed to protect the security of our computer systems, software, networks and other technology assets and the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information belonging to us and our customers, there is no assurance that our security measures will provide absolute security. In fact, many other financial services institutions and companies engaged in data processing have reported breaches in the security of their websites or other systems, some of which have involved sophisticated and targeted attacks intended to obtain unauthorized access to confidential information, destroy data, disable or degrade service, or sabotage systems, often through the introduction of computer viruses or malware, cyberattacks and other means. Certain financial institutions in the United States have also experienced attacks from technically sophisticated and well-resourced third parties that were intended to disrupt normal business activities by making internet banking systems inaccessible to customers for extended periods. These “denial-of-service” attacks have not breached our data security systems, but require substantial resources to defend, and may affect customer satisfaction and behavior.

Despite our efforts to ensure the integrity of our systems, it is possible that we may not be able to anticipate or to implement effective preventive measures against all security breaches of these types, especially because the techniques used change frequently or are not recognized until launched, and because security attacks can originate from a wide variety of sources, including persons who are involved with organized crime or associated with external service providers or who may be linked to terrorist organizations or hostile foreign governments. Those parties may also attempt to fraudulently induce employees, customers or other users of our systems to disclose sensitive information in order to gain access to our data or that of our customers or clients. These risks may increase in the future as we continue to increase our mobile payments and other internet-based product offerings and expand our internal usage of web-based products and applications.

If our security systems were penetrated or circumvented, it could cause serious negative consequences for us, including significant disruption of our operations, misappropriation of our confidential information or that of our customers, or damage our computers or systems and those of our customers and counterparties, and could result in violations of applicable privacy and other laws, financial loss to us or to our customers, loss of confidence in our security measures, customer dissatisfaction, significant litigation exposure, and harm to our reputation, all of which could have a material adverse effect on us.

We have risk related to legal proceedings.

We are involved in judicial, regulatory and arbitration proceedings concerning matters arising from our business activities and fiduciary responsibilities. We establish reserves for legal claims when payments associated with the claims become probable and the costs can be reasonably estimated. We may still incur legal costs for a matter even if we have not established a reserve. In addition, the actual cost of resolving a legal claim may be substantially higher than any amounts reserved for that matter. The ultimate resolution of a pending or future legal proceeding, depending on the remedy sought and granted, could materially adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.

Risks Related to Old National’s Stock

We may not be able to pay dividends in the future in accordance with past practice.

Old National has traditionally paid a quarterly dividend to common stockholders. The payment of dividends is subject to legal and regulatory restrictions. Any payment of dividends in the future will depend, in large part, on Old National’s earnings, capital requirements, financial condition and other factors considered relevant by Old National’s Board of Directors.

The price of Old National’s common stock may be volatile, which may result in losses for investors.

General market price declines or market volatility in the future could adversely affect the price of Old National’s common stock. In addition, the following factors may cause the market price for shares of Old National’s common stock to fluctuate:

 

    announcements of developments related to Old National’s business;

 

    fluctuations in Old National’s results of operations;

 

    sales or purchases of substantial amounts of Old National’s securities in the marketplace;

 

    general conditions in Old National’s banking niche or the worldwide economy;

ITEM 1B. UNRESOLVED STAFF COMMENTS

None.

ITEM 2. PROPERTIES

As of December 31, 2013, Old National and its affiliates operated a total of 169 banking centers, primarily in the states of Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Michigan. Of these facilities, 51 were owned.

The executive offices of Old National are located at 1 Main Street, Evansville, Indiana. This building, which houses Old National’s general corporate functions, is leased from an unaffiliated third party. The lease term expires December 31, 2031, and provides for the tenant’s option to extend the term of the lease for four five-year periods. In addition, we lease 118 financial centers from unaffiliated third parties. The terms of these leases range from six months to twenty-four years. See Note 20 to the consolidated financial statements.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

In the normal course of business, Old National and its subsidiaries have been named, from time to time, as defendants in various legal actions. Certain of the actual or threatened legal actions include claims for substantial compensatory and/or punitive damages or claims for indeterminate amounts of damages.

Old National contests liability and/or the amount of damages as appropriate in each pending matter. In view of the inherent difficulty of predicting the outcome of such matters, particularly in cases where claimants seek substantial or indeterminate damages or where investigations and proceedings are in the early stages, Old National cannot predict with certainty the loss or range of loss, if any, related to such matters, how or if such matters will be resolved, when they will ultimately be resolved, or what the eventual settlement, or other relief, if any, might be. Subject to the foregoing, Old National believes, based on current knowledge and after consultation with counsel, that the outcome of such pending matters will not have a material adverse effect on the consolidated financial condition of Old National, although the outcome of such matters could be material to Old National’s operating results and cash flows for a particular future period, depending on, among other things, the level of Old National’s revenues or income for such period. Old National will accrue for a loss contingency if (1) it is probable that a future event will occur and confirm the loss and (2) the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated.

In November 2010, Old National was named in a class action lawsuit in Vanderburgh Circuit Court challenging Old National Bank’s checking account practices associated with the assessment of overdraft fees. The theory set forth by plaintiffs in this case is similar to other class action complaints filed against other financial institutions in recent years and settled for substantial amounts. On May 1, 2012, the plaintiff was granted permission to file a First Amended Complaint which named additional plaintiffs and amended certain claims. The plaintiffs seek damages and other relief, including restitution. On June 13, 2012, Old National filed a motion to dismiss the First Amended Complaint, which was subsequently denied by the Court. On September 7, 2012, the plaintiffs filed a motion for class certification, which was granted on March 20, 2013, and provides for a class of “All Old National Bank customers in the State of Indiana who had one or more consumer accounts and who, within the applicable statutes of limitation through August 15, 2010, incurred an overdraft fee as a result of Old National Bank’s practice of sequencing debit card and ATM transactions from highest to lowest.” Old National sought an interlocutory appeal on the issue of class certification on April 2, 2013, which was subsequently denied. Old National does not believe there is a cause of action under Indiana law to support the plaintiffs’ claims. Accordingly, on June 11, 2013, Old National moved for summary judgment. On September 16, 2013, a hearing was held on the summary judgment motion and on September 27, 2013, the Court ordered the parties to mediation and informed the parties that “Court will be denying the motion for summary judgment upon receiving the report of the mediator.”

The parties subsequently met on January 30, 2014 with the mediator and were unable to reach an agreement to resolve the dispute. The parties have agreed to meet again with the mediator at a mutually agreed upon date. The case is not currently set for trial. Old National believes it has meritorious defenses to the claims brought by the plaintiffs. At this phase of the litigation, it is not possible for management of Old National to determine the probability of a material adverse outcome or reasonably estimate the amount of any loss.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following discussion is an analysis of our results of operations for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2013, 2012 and 2011, and financial condition as of December 31, 2013 and 2012. This discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and related notes. This discussion contains forward-looking statements concerning our business. Readers are cautioned that, by their nature, forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions and are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors. Actual results may differ materially from our expectations that are expressed or implied by any forward-looking statement. The discussion in Item 1A, “Risk Factors,” lists some of the factors that could cause our actual results to vary materially from those expressed or implied by any forward-looking statements, and such discussion is incorporated into this discussion by reference.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

Old National is a financial holding company incorporated in the State of Indiana and maintains its principal executive offices in Evansville, Indiana. Old National, through Old National Bank, provides a wide range of services, including commercial and consumer loan and depository services, lease financing and other traditional banking services. Old National also provides services to supplement the traditional banking business including fiduciary and wealth management services, investment and brokerage services, investment consulting, insurance and other financial services.

Our basic mission is to be THE community bank in the cities and towns we serve. We focus on establishing and maintaining long-term relationships with customers, and are committed to serving the financial needs of the communities in our market area. Old National provides financial services primarily in Indiana, southeastern Illinois, western Kentucky, and southwest Michigan.

CORPORATE DEVELOPMENTS IN FISCAL 2013

Net income for 2013 was $100.9 million, an increase of $9.2 million from 2012. Diluted earnings per share available to common shareholders were $1.00 per share, an increase of $0.05 per share from 2012.

The improvement in 2013 net income was primarily the result of improved credit and lower cost funding sources.

Old National entered into the southwest Michigan market through the acquisition of 24 branches of Bank of America during the third quarter of 2013 and subsequent to year-end, Old National announced its agreement to acquire Ann Arbor-based United. This acquisition is expected to add an additional 18 branch offices in Southern Michigan, approximately $790 million in deposits, $646 million in loans, and a $670 million wealth management portfolio. This would double Old National’s presence in Michigan to thirty-six banking centers. The closing of the United acquisition is subject to approval by United’s shareholders and approval by state and federal regulatory authorities, as well as the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions.

The United acquisition, which is currently expected to close during the second quarter of 2014, in conjunction with the pending acquisition of Fort Wayne, Indiana-based Tower early in 2014, could lift Old National over the ten billion dollar asset mark, assuming no other balance sheet restructuring. This is significant in that it would re-categorize Old National from a “small” to a “mid-size” bank, subjecting Old National to enhanced regulatory oversight along with higher capital and liquidity standards. Management has been contemplating this for some time and feels we will have the resources, policies, and procedures in place to comply with these higher standards should they become applicable.

Finally, management remains focused on providing an efficient and effective branch banking network consolidating or selling 35 branches during 2013, transitioning the franchise to higher growth markets.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

While we believe the interest rate environment will continue to pose challenges for 2014 revenue growth, our clients are expressing some optimism regarding the state of the economy.

Our goals for 2014 are much the same as they were in 2013 and 2012: increase revenue, reduce expenses and target partnership opportunities that align with our financial and strategic goals.

 

    While we remain committed to a risk-conscious approach to lending, we know how vital it is to generate new loan growth in 2014 and beyond. We believe our new partnerships, and the new client base they represent, position us well to achieve this growth.

 

    As we did in 2013, we will continue to look for ways to enhance our efficiency ratio through process improvements, organizational streamlining and other cost reduction strategies.

 

    We continue to target additional partnerships. We are focused on expanding our insurance and wealth management businesses and continue to seek community banks in growth markets that are either within or near our existing franchise. Such strategic consolidations should improve our bottom line while expanding our distribution network, which helps build long-term shareholder value.

(1) Efficiency ratio is defined as noninterest expense before amortization of intangibles as a percent of fully taxable equivalent net interest income and noninterest income, excluding net gains from securities transactions. This presentation excludes intangible amortization and net securities gains, as is common in other company disclosures, and better aligns with true operating performance. This is a non-GAAP financial measure that management believes to be helpful in understanding Old National’s results of operations.

Comparison of Fiscal Years 2013 and 2012

Net Interest Income

Net interest income is the most significant component of our earnings, comprising over 63% of 2013 revenues. Net interest income and margin are influenced by many factors, primarily the volume and mix of earning assets, funding sources and interest rate fluctuations. Other factors include level of accretion income on purchased loans, prepayment risk on mortgage and investment-related assets and the composition and maturity of earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities. Loans typically generate more interest income than investment securities with similar maturities. Funding from client deposits generally cost less than wholesale funding sources. Factors such as general economic activity, Federal Reserve Board monetary policy and price volatility of competing alternative investments, can also exert significant influence on our ability to optimize the mix of assets and funding and the net interest income and margin.

Net interest income is the excess of interest received from earning assets over interest paid on interest-bearing liabilities. For analytical purposes, net interest income is also presented in the table that follows, adjusted to a taxable equivalent basis to reflect what our tax-exempt assets would need to yield in order to achieve the same after-tax yield as a taxable asset. We used the federal statutory tax rate in effect of 35% for all periods adjusted for the TEFRA interest disallowance applicable to certain tax-exempt obligations. This analysis portrays the income tax benefits associated in tax-exempt assets and helps to facilitate a comparison between taxable and tax-exempt assets. Management believes that it is a standard practice in the banking industry to present net interest margin and net interest income on a fully taxable equivalent basis. Therefore, management believes these measures provide useful information for both management and investors by allowing them to make peer comparisons.

Net interest income was $317.4 million in 2013, a 2.8% increase from the $308.8 million reported in 2012. Taxable equivalent net interest income was $334.3 million in 2013, a 3.8% increase from the $321.9 million reported in 2012. The net interest margin on a fully taxable equivalent basis was 4.02% for 2013, a 21 basis point decrease compared to the 4.23% reported in 2012. Both 2013 and 2012 include accretion income (interest income in excess of contractual interest income) associated with purchased credit impaired loans. Excluding this accretion income in both periods, net interest income on a fully taxable equivalent basis would have been $275.3 million in 2013 compared to $264.4 million; and the net interest margin on a fully taxable equivalent basis would have been 3.31% in 2013 and 3.48% in 2012.

The increase in net interest income year over year is primarily due to the acquisition of IBT on September 15, 2012 combined with a change in the mix of interest earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities. The accretion income associated with the purchased assets from IBT benefited net interest margin by 28 basis points, or $23.7 million, in 2013. We expect this benefit to decline over time.

The yield on average earning assets decreased 38 basis points from 4.70% to 4.32% while the cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased 25 basis points from 0.64% to 0.39%. Average earning assets increased by $695.2 million, or 9.1%. Average interest-bearing liabilities increased $588.0 million, or 10.4%. The increase in average earning assets consisted of a $282.6 million increase in loans, a $419.5 million increase in lower yielding investment securities and a $6.9 million decrease in money market and other interest-earning investments. The increase in average interest-bearing liabilities consisted of a $225.2 million increase in interest-bearing deposits, a $103.7 million increase in short-term borrowings and a $259.1 million increase in other borrowings. Average noninterest-bearing deposits increased by $124.0 million.

Significantly affecting average earning assets during 2013 was the increase in the size of the loan portfolio combined with the increase in the size of the investment portfolio. Included in average earning assets for 2013 are approximately $335.6 million of assets from the IBT acquisition, which was completed on September 15, 2012. Included in average earning assets for 2012 was $169.3 million from the IBT acquisition. The increase in average loans during 2013 is primarily a result of the IBT acquisition. However, we also experienced organic loan growth during the year. Despite the sale of $96.9 million of residential real estate loans during the third quarter of 2013, our residential mortgage loan portfolio grew $34.9 million during 2013. In addition, we experienced growth of $36.6 million in our commercial loan portfolio and $64.4 million in our consumer loan portfolio during 2013. We experienced declines in our commercial real estate loan portfolio of $95.0 million and $154.5 million in our acquired loan portfolio. The loan portfolio, which generally has an average yield higher than the investment portfolio, was approximately 61% of interest earning assets at December 31, 2013.

The $419.5 million increase in the investment portfolio was in anticipation of the pending Bank of America branch acquisition. Old National began buying securities starting in the first quarter of 2013 when rates were favorable in advance of the close in July 2013. The transaction received regulatory approval and we acquired approximately $563 million of cash and assumed approximately $565 million of deposits on July 12, 2013. The investment purchases had been funded with short term borrowings and FHLB advances with short maturities which were retired when the cash was received. We remained below $10 billion in assets and did not become subject to certain provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act as a result of this transaction.

Positively affecting margin was an increase in noninterest-bearing demand deposits, short-term borrowings and FHLB advances with short maturities combined with a decrease in time deposits. The increase in short-term borrowings and FHLB advances, as discussed above, was in anticipation of the branch acquisition from Bank of America. Approximately $537 million of short-term borrowings and FHLB advances were repaid on July 12, 2013 when the transaction closed. Over the past year, we have reduced the cost of our other borrowings by changing the composition of other borrowings. During the first nine months of 2013, we terminated $50.0 million of FHLB advances. We also restructured $33.4 million of FHLB advances in the first quarter of 2013. During the fourth quarter of 2012, we terminated $50.0 million of FHLB advances. On June 30, 2012 we redeemed $13.0 million of subordinated notes and $3.0 million of trust preferred securities. Year over year, time deposits, which have an average interest rate higher than other types of deposits, have decreased as a percent of total funding.

The following table presents a three-year average balance sheet and for each major asset and liability category, its related interest income and yield or its expense and rate for the years ended December 31.

Provision for Loan Losses

The provision for loan losses was a credit of $2.3 million in 2013, compared to $5.0 million of expense recorded in 2012. Impacting the provision over the past twelve months are the following factors: (1) the loss factors applied to our performing loan portfolio have decreased over time as charge-offs were substantially lower, (2) recoveries associated with our purchased credit impaired loans accounted for under ASC310-30, (3) the continuing trend in improved credit quality, and (4) a decrease in our commercial real estate loan balances (which carry higher loss rates than other loan categories) in conjunction with improving average asset quality ratings on the remaining commercial real estate loans in our portfolio. For additional information about non-performing loans, charge-offs and additional items impacting the provision, refer to the “Risk Management - Credit Risk” section of Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”.

Noninterest Income

We generate revenues in the form of noninterest income through client fees and sales commissions from our core banking franchise and other related businesses, such as wealth management, investment consulting, investment products and insurance. This source of revenue has decreased as a percentage of total revenue to 36.8% in 2013 compared to 38.1% in 2012.

Noninterest income for 2013 was $184.8 million, a decrease of $5.0 million, or 2.7% compared to $189.8 million reported for 2012. The decrease in noninterest income in 2013 resulted from a $10.3 million decrease in net securities gains, a $5.9 million decrease from adjustments to the FDIC indemnification asset and a $1.9 million decrease in service charges on deposit accounts. Partially offsetting these decreases were a $3.3 million increase in investment products, $2.9 million of gains from branch divestitures, a $1.9 million increase in wealth management fees, a $1.0 million increase in revenue from company-owned life insurance and a $1.4 million increase in other income.

Table of Contents

Net securities gains were $3.3 million during 2013 compared to $13.6 million for 2012. Included in 2013 is $4.3 million of security gains partially offset by a $1.0 million other-than-temporary-impairment charge on one pooled trust preferred security. Included in 2012 is $15.0 million of security gains partially offset by $1.4 million of other-than-temporary-impairment charges on two pooled trust preferred securities and six non-agency mortgage-backed securities.

Wealth management fees are dependent on the performance of managed assets. Wealth management fees increased by $1.9 million to $23.5 million in 2013. Although aided by improved asset performance, the $1.9 million increase was primarily due to the acquisition of IBT on September 15, 2012.

Service charges and overdraft fees on deposit accounts, our largest source of noninterest income, continued to be challenged. Service charges and overdraft fees were $49.6 million in 2013, a $1.9 million decrease from $51.5 million in 2012. The decrease is primarily attributable to decreases in overdraft charges and changes in customer behavior. These decreases were partially offset by a $2.0 million increase associated with the acquisition of IBT and a $2.9 million increase associated with the acquisition of the bank branches from Bank of America.

Debit card and ATM fees increased by $1.0 million to $25.0 million in 2013 as compared to $24.0 million in 2012. An increase in interchange income resulting from the acquisitions of IBT and the Bank of America branches is the primary reason for the increase.

Insurance premiums and commissions increased $1.4 million to $38.5 million in 2013 compared to $37.1 million in 2012, primarily as a result of higher contingency income and commissions on property and casualty insurance.

Investment product fees were $16.0 million in 2013 compared to $12.7 million in 2012. The $3.3 million increase is primarily a result of increases in annuity fees and mutual fund fees.

Revenue from company-owned life insurance was $7.5 million in 2013 compared to $6.4 million in 2012. The increase is primarily due to a $1.1 million single life insurance benefit that was received in the third quarter of 2013.

During the third quarter of 2012, Old National announced plans to sell the deposits of nine banking centers in southern Illinois and western Kentucky. The sales closed during the first quarter of 2013. During the fourth quarter of 2013, Old National sold three branches with deposits at the time of sale of approximately $28.2 million. We received a deposit premium of $2.9 million on the sales.

Other income increased $1.4 million in 2013 as compared to 2012. The increase was primarily as a result of a $1.6 million credit on the renewal of a contract.

Noninterest Income Related to Covered Assets

The indemnification asset, on the acquisition date, reflects the reimbursements expected to be received from the FDIC. Deterioration in our expectation of credit quality of the loans or OREO would immediately increase the basis of the indemnification asset, with the offset recorded through the consolidated statement of income. Increases in the credit quality or cash flows of loans (reflected as an adjustment to yield and accreted into income over the remaining life of the loans) decrease the basis of the indemnification asset, with the decrease being amortized into income over the same period or the life of the loss share agreements, whichever is shorter.

For 2013, adjustments to the FDIC indemnification asset resulted in noninterest expense of $9.3 million. This compares to noninterest expense of $3.4 million in 2012. The increase in expense is primarily the result of lower levels of impairment of other real estate in 2013.

At December 31, 2013, $32.2 million of the remaining indemnification asset is expected to be amortized and reported in noninterest income over the next 33 months.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for 2013 totaled $362.0 million, a decrease of $3.8 million, or approximately 1.0% from the $365.8 million recorded in 2012. Included in 2013 is approximately $5.0 million of noninterest expense related to the acquisition of the Bank of America branches and $4.5 million of noninterest expense associated with the consolidation of 18 branches. Also included in 2013 is approximately $6.5 million of noninterest expense related to IBT. Offsetting these increases is a $13.0 million decrease in other real estate expense and a $2.6 million decrease in occupancy expense. Included in 2012 is approximately $10.2 million of noninterest expense related to IBT, which was acquired on September 15, 2012. This amount includes approximately $7.8 million of acquisition and integration expenses.

Table of Contents

Salaries and benefits, the largest component of noninterest expense, totaled $202.4 million in 2013, compared to $193.9 million in 2012, an increase of $8.5 million, or 4.4%. Included in 2013 is an increase of $4.3 million for salaries and benefits expense associated with the Bank of America acquisition. Also included in 2013 is $4.5 million of salaries and benefits expense associated with IBT. Included in 2012 is $6.0 million of salaries and benefit expense associated with former IBT associates, which includes severance and retention accruals. Also included in 2013 is a $2.5 million increase in performance-based incentive compensation plan, a $1.6 million increase in commission expense and a $1.7 million increase in hospitalization expense.

Occupancy expense was $48.4 million for 2013 compared to $50.9 million for 2012. Decreases in rent expense and building depreciation expense associated with our recent branch closures and consolidations were the primary reasons for the decrease in occupancy expense.

Other real estate owned expense was $4.1 million for 2013 compared to $17.1 million for 2012. The majority of the 2012 expenses were associated with other real estate properties acquired from the FDIC, 80% of which was offset by a corresponding adjustment to the FDIC indemnification asset.

Other expense was $21.3 million for 2013, an increase of $5.3 million when compared to 2012. Included in 2013 is $2.2 million less benefit associated with the provision for unfunded commitments, a $0.5 million BSA/AML penalty, a $1.0 million increase in director and board committee expenses (primarily associated with an increase in the value of the Directors Deferred Compensation Plan), and a $0.5 million increase in other tax expense.

Noninterest Expense Related to Covered Assets

Noninterest expense related to covered assets are included in OREO expense, legal and professional expense and other covered asset-related expenses, and may be subject to FDIC reimbursement. Expenses must meet certain FDIC criteria in order for the expense amounts to be reimbursed. Certain amounts reflected in these balances may not be reimbursed by the FDIC if they do not meet the criteria.

Approximately $390,000, or twenty percent of the expense associated with holding and maintaining covered assets assumed in the Integra acquisition, are not reimbursable by the FDIC and were recorded as noninterest expense during 2013. The remaining eighty percent was recorded as a receivable from the FDIC. Additional non-reimbursable expenses of approximately $335,000 associated with holding and maintaining covered assets assumed in the Integra acquisition were also recorded in noninterest expense during 2013.

Approximately $828,000, or twenty percent of the expense associated with holding and maintaining covered assets assumed in the Integra acquisition, are not reimbursable by the FDIC and were recorded as noninterest expense during 2012. The remaining eighty percent was recorded as a receivable from the FDIC. Additional non-reimbursable expenses of approximately $444,000 associated with holding and maintaining covered assets assumed in the Integra acquisition were also recorded in noninterest expense during 2012.

Provision for Income Taxes

We record a provision for income taxes currently payable and for income taxes payable or benefits to be received in the future, which arise due to timing differences in the recognition of certain items for financial statement and income tax purposes. The major difference between the effective tax rate applied to our financial statement income and the federal statutory tax rate is caused by interest on tax-exempt securities and loans. The higher tax rate is the result of an increase in pre-tax book income. In 2013, there was an increase in income tax expense of approximately $1.3 million related to a statutory rate change. See Note 13 to the consolidated financial statements for additional details on Old National’s income tax provision.

Comparison of Fiscal Years 2012 and 2011

In 2012, we generated net income of $91.7 million and diluted net income per share of $0.95 compared to $72.5 million and $0.76, respectively, in 2011. The 2012 earnings included a $35.9 million increase in net interest income, a $6.9 million increase in noninterest income and $2.4 million decrease in the provision for loan losses. Offsetting these increases to net income in 2012 was a $17.2 million increase in noninterest expense and an $8.8 million increase in income tax expense.

Taxable equivalent net interest income was $321.9 million in 2012, a 13.1% increase from the $284.7 million reported in 2011. The net interest margin was 4.23% for 2012, a 36 basis point increase compared to 3.87% reported for 2011. Average earning assets increased by $258.0 million during 2012 and the yield on average earning assets increased 10 basis points from 4.60% to 4.70%. Average interest-bearing liabilities increased $28.8 million and the cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased from 0.96% to 0.64%.

The provision for loan losses was $5.0 million in 2012, a $2.5 million decrease from the $7.5 million recorded in 2011. Impacting the provision over the past twelve months are the following factors: (1) the loss factors applied to our performing loan portfolio have decreased over time as charge-offs were substantially lower, (2) the continuing trend in improved credit quality, and (3) the percentage of our legacy loan portfolio consisting of those loans where higher loss factors are applied (commercial and commercial real estate loans) fell while the percentage of our loan portfolio consisting of those loans where lower loss factors are applied (residential loans) increased.

Noninterest income for 2012 was $189.8 million, an increase of $6.9 million, or 3.8% from the $182.9 million reported for 2011. The improvement in 2012 resulted from a $6.3 million increase in net securities gains, a $1.1 million increase in wealth management fees, a $1.6 million increase in investment product fees, a $1.1 million increase in revenue from company-owned life insurance and a $3.0 million increase in other income. Partially offsetting these increases were a $1.2 million decrease in debit card and ATM card fees, a $1.4 million decrease in gain on sale leaseback transactions and a $3.8 million decrease from changes in the FDIC indemnification asset.

Income and expense associated with the FDIC loss sharing agreements is reflected in the change in the FDIC indemnification asset. This balance includes discount accretion, gains on the write-up of the FDIC indemnification asset, and expense from the reduction of the FDIC indemnification asset upon the removal of loans, OREO and unfunded loan commitments. Loans are removed when they have been fully paid off, fully charged off, sold or transferred to OREO. The change in the FDIC indemnification asset also includes income due to the FDIC, as well as the income statement effects of other loss share transactions. For 2012, adjustments to the FDIC indemnification asset resulted in noninterest expense of $3.4 million. The decrease in income is primarily the result of improvements in our loan loss expectations, which was partially offset by impairment of other real estate.

Noninterest expense for 2012 totaled $365.8 million, an increase of $17.3 million, or 4.9% from the $348.5 million recorded in 2011. Included in 2012 is approximately $10.2 million of noninterest expense related to IBT, which was acquired on September 15, 2012. This amount includes approximately $7.8 million of acquisition and integration expenses. Also included in 2012 is approximately $26.6 million of noninterest expense for Integra, which was acquired on July 29, 2011. Noninterest expense for Integra for 2011 was $25.9 million. The 2011 amount for Integra includes approximately $11.1 million of acquisition and integration costs. Also included in 2012 is a $6.4 million increase in expense related to the reinstatement of our performance-based incentive compensation plan.

Table of Contents

Noninterest expense related to covered assets are included in OREO expense, legal and professional expense and other covered asset-related expenses, and may be subject to FDIC reimbursement. Expenses must meet certain FDIC criteria in order for the expense amounts to be reimbursed. Certain amounts reflected in these balances may not be reimbursed by the FDIC if they do not meet the criteria.

Approximately $828,000, or twenty percent of the expense associated with holding and maintaining covered assets assumed in the Integra acquisition, are not reimbursable by the FDIC and were recorded as noninterest expense during 2012. The remaining eighty percent was recorded as a receivable from the FDIC. Additional non-reimbursable expenses of approximately $444,000 associated with holding and maintaining covered assets assumed in the Integra acquisition were also recorded in noninterest expense during 2012.

The provision for income taxes was $36.1 million in 2012 compared to $27.3 million in 2011. Old National’s effective tax rate was 28.3% in 2012 compared to 27.4% in 2011.

The 2013 banking segment profit increased $7.0 million from 2012 levels, primarily as a result of the acquisition of IBT, which occurred on September 15, 2012. The 2012 community banking segment profit increased $18.4 million from 2011 levels, primarily as a result of the acquisitions of IBT and Integra, which occurred on July 29, 2011.

Included in the wealth management segment profit in 2011 is a $2.0 million accrual for a litigation settlement. During the second quarter of 2011, Old National acquired Integra Wealth Management. Old National acquired the wealth management business of Indiana Community Bancorp on September 15, 2012.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

Overview

At December 31, 2013, our total assets were $9.582 billion, a 0.4% increase from $9.544 billion at December 31, 2012. The increase is primarily a result of an increase in the investment portfolio. Partially offsetting the increase in the investment portfolio has been a decrease in the covered loan segment of the loan portfolio. Earning assets, comprised of investment securities, portfolio loans, loans and leases held for sale, money market investments and interest earning accounts with the Federal Reserve, were $8.286 billion at December 31, 2013, an increase of $86.3 million, or 1.1%, from $8.200 billion at December 31, 2012. The increase in earning assets is primarily a result of reinvested cash received in conjunction with the acquisition of 24 branches from Bank of America. Year over year, time deposits, which have an average interest rate higher that other types of deposits, have decreased as a percent of total funding.

Investment Securities

We classify investment securities primarily as available-for-sale to give management the flexibility to sell the securities prior to maturity if needed, based on fluctuating interest rates or changes in our funding requirements. However, we also have $35.4 million of 15- and 20-year fixed-rate mortgage pass-through securities, $170.6 million of U.S. government-sponsored entity and agency securities and $556.7 million of state and political subdivision securities in our held-to-maturity investment portfolio at December 31, 2013. During the third quarter of 2013, state and political subdivision securities with a fair value of $357.8 million were transferred from the available-for-sale portfolio to the held-to-maturity portfolio. We moved these securities to our held-to-maturity portfolio to better align with the percentage of these securities held by our peers and to protect our tangible common equity against rising interest rates. During the third quarter of 2012, approximately $46.1 million of state and political subdivision securities were transferred from the held-to-maturity portfolio to the available-for-sale portfolio due to changes in circumstances associated with the Office of Management and Budget’s report outlining sequestration and the implications for taxable Build America Bonds (see Note 4 to the consolidated financial statements).

Trading securities, which consist of mutual funds held in a trust associated with deferred compensation plans for former Monroe Bancorp directors and executives, are recorded at fair value and totaled $3.6 million at December 31, 2013 compared to $3.1 million at December 31, 2012.

At December 31, 2013, the investment securities portfolio was $3.179 billion compared to $2.945 billion at December 31, 2012, an increase of 8.0%. Investment securities represented 38.4% of earning assets at December 31, 2013, compared to 35.9% at December 31, 2012. The increase in the investment portfolio was related to the reinvested cash received in conjunction with the acquisition of the 24 branches from Bank of America. The transaction received regulatory approval and closed on July 12, 2013. Stronger commercial loan demand in the future or management’s decision to deleverage the balance sheet could result in a reduction in the securities portfolio. As of December 31, 2013, management does not intend to sell any securities with an unrealized loss position and does not believe we will be required to sell such securities.

The investment securities available-for-sale portfolio had net unrealized losses of $34.1 million at December 31, 2013, compared to net unrealized gains of $64.0 million at December 31, 2012. A $1.0 million charge was recorded during 2013 related to other-than-temporary-impairment on one pooled trust preferred security. This charge was not related to the Volcker Rule, and as of December 31, 2013, all of the pooled trust preferred securities owned by Old National are on the nonexclusive list of CDOs backed by trust preferred securities that depository institutions are permitted to continue to hold. A $1.4 million charge was recorded during 2012 related to other-than-temporary-impairment on two pooled trust preferred securities and six non-agency mortgage-backed securities. See Note 3 to the consolidated financial statements for the impact of other-than-temporary-impairment in other comprehensive income and Note 4 to the consolidated financial statements for details on management’s evaluation of securities for other-than-temporary-impairment.

The investment portfolio had an effective duration of 4.84 at December 31, 2013, compared to 3.71 at December 31, 2012. Effective duration measures the percentage change in value of the portfolio in response to a change in interest rates. Generally, there is more uncertainty in interest rates over a longer average maturity, resulting in a higher duration percentage. The weighted average yields on available-for-sale investment securities were 2.48% in 2013 and 2.99% in 2012. The average yields on the held-to-maturity portfolio were 5.02% in 2013 and 3.90% in 2012.

At December 31, 2013, Old National had a concentration of investment securities issued by certain states and their political subdivisions with the following aggregate market values: $297.3 million by Indiana, which represented 25.6% of shareholders’ equity, and $136.5 million by Texas, which represented 11.7% of shareholders’ equity. 97% of the Indiana municipal bonds are rated “A” or better, and the remaining 3% generally represent non-rated local interest bonds where Old National has a market presence. All of the Texas municipal bonds are rated “AA” or better, and the majority of issues are backed by the “AAA” rated State of Texas Permanent School Fund Guarantee Program. At December 31, 2012, Old National had a concentration of investment securities issued by Indiana and its political subdivisions totaling $273.8 million, which represented 22.9% of shareholders’ equity. There were no other concentrations of investment securities issued by an individual state and its political subdivisions that were greater than 10% of shareholders’ equity.

Commercial and Commercial Real Estate Loans

At December 31, 2013, commercial loans increased $10.3 million while commercial real estate loans decreased $195.9 million, respectively, from December 31, 2012. During 2013, we sold $5.9 million of commercial and commercial real estate loans. Net recoveries of $0.2 million were recorded related to these sales. At June 30, 2013, we had taxable finance leases held for sale of $11.6 million. These leases were transferred from the commercial loan category at fair value and a loss of $0.2 million was recognized. The leases were sold in the third quarter of 2013 with no additional loss. We sold $1.7 million of commercial and commercial real estate loans during 2012. Net recoveries of $0.7 million were recorded related to these sales. Loan demand in our markets remains soft. However, we did experience modest loan growth in the commercial portfolio during 2013.

The following table presents the maturity distribution and rate sensitivity of commercial loans and an analysis of these loans that have predetermined and floating interest rates. A significant percentage of commercial loans are due within one year, reflecting the short-term nature of a large portion of these loans.

Consumer Loans

Consumer loans, including automobile loans, personal and home equity loans and lines of credit, increased $45.1 million or 4.5% at December 31, 2013, compared to December 31, 2012.

Residential Real Estate Loans

Residential real estate loans, primarily 1-4 family properties, were $1.387 billion at December 31, 2013, an increase of $26.8 million or 2.0% from December 31, 2012.

Table of Contents

During the third quarter of 2013, Old National sold approximately $96.9 million of residential real estate loans as part of its effort to reduce interest rate risk in the loan portfolio. All of the loans sold were FNMA conforming loans.

Allowance for Loan Losses

To provide for the risk of loss inherent in extending credit, we maintain an allowance for loan losses. The determination of the allowance is based upon the size and current risk characteristics of the loan portfolio and includes an assessment of individual problem loans, actual loss experience, current economic events and regulatory guidance. Additional information about our Allowance for Loan Losses is included in the “Risk Management - Credit Risk” section of Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and Notes 1 and 6 to the consolidated financial statements.

At December 31, 2013, the allowance for loan losses was $47.1 million, a decrease of $7.7 million compared to $54.8 million at December 31, 2012. As a percentage of total loans, the allowance decreased to 0.93% at December 31, 2013, from 1.05% at December 31, 2012. The provision for loan losses was a credit of $2.3 million in 2013, compared to $5.0 million of expense recorded in 2012. Impacting the provision over the past twelve months are the following factors: (1) the loss factors applied to our performing loan portfolio have decreased over time as charge-offs were substantially lower, (2) recoveries associated with our purchased credit impaired loans accounted for under ASC310-30, (3) the continuing trend in improved credit quality, and (4) a decrease in our commercial real estate loan balances (which carry higher loss rates than other loan categories) in conjunction with improving average asset quality ratings on the remaining commercial real estate loans in our portfolio.

For commercial loans, the reserve increased by $0.4 million at December 31, 2013, compared to December 31, 2012. The reserve as a percentage of the commercial loan portfolio decreased to 1.09% at December 31, 2013, from 1.10% at December 31, 2012. For commercial real estate loans, the reserve decreased by $7.4 million at December 31, 2013, compared to December 31, 2012. The reserve as a percentage of the commercial real estate loan portfolio decreased to 1.64% at December 31, 2013, from 2.10% at December 31, 2012. The lower reserve need is the result of improved asset quality. Nonaccrual loans, excluding covered loans, decreased $53.7 million since December 31, 2012. Criticized and classified loans decreased $51.5 million from December 31, 2012. During 2013, other classified assets, which consist of investment securities downgraded below investment grade, decreased $15.3 million.

The reserve for residential real estate loans as a percentage of that portfolio decreased to 0.23% at December 31, 2013, from 0.28% at December 31, 2012. The reserve for consumer loans decreased to 0.47% at December 31, 2013, from 0.48% at December 31, 2012.

Allowance for Losses on Unfunded Commitments

We maintain an allowance for losses on unfunded commercial lending commitments and letters of credit to provide for the risk of loss inherent in these arrangements. The allowance is computed using a methodology similar to that used to determine the allowance for loan losses, modified to take into account the probability of a drawdown on the commitment. This allowance is reported as a liability on the balance sheet within accrued expenses and other liabilities, while the corresponding provision for these loan losses is recorded as a component of other expense. As of December 31, 2013 and 2012, the allowance for losses on unfunded commitments was $2.7 million and $4.0 million, respectively.

Residential Loans Held for Sale

At December 31, 2013, loans held for sale is made up entirely of mortgage loans held for immediate sale in the secondary market with servicing released. These loans are sold at or prior to origination at a contracted price to an outside investor on a best efforts basis and remain on the Company’s balance sheet for a short period of time (typically 30 to 60 days). These loans are sold without recourse and the Company has experienced no material losses. Mortgage originations are subject to volatility due to interest rates and home sales. Residential loans held for sale were $7.7 million at December 31, 2013, compared to $12.6 million at December 31, 2012.

Table of Contents

We elected the fair value option under FASB ASC 825-10, Financial Instruments (SFAS No. 159) for residential loans held for sale. The aggregate fair value exceeded the unpaid principal balances by $0.1 million as of December 31, 2013. At December 31, 2012, the aggregate fair value exceeded the unpaid principal balance by $0.4 million.

Finance Leases Held for Sale

At June 30, 2013, Old National had taxable finance leases held for sale of $11.6 million. These leases were transferred from the commercial loan category at fair value and a loss of $0.2 million was recognized. The portfolio of leases held for sale had an average maturity of 2.7 years and interest rates ranging from 3.57% to 10.22%. The leases held for sale were to a variety of borrowers, with various types of equipment securing the leases, and all of the leases were current. The leases held for sale were sold in the third quarter of 2013. As of December 31, 2013, Old National does not intend to sell its nontaxable leases.

Covered Assets

On July 29, 2011, Old National acquired the banking operations of Integra in an FDIC assisted transaction. We entered into separate loss sharing agreements with the FDIC providing for specified credit loss protection for substantially all acquired single family residential loans, commercial loans, and OREO. Loans comprise the majority of the assets acquired and are subject to loss share agreements with the FDIC whereby Old National is indemnified against 80% of losses up to $275.0 million, losses in excess of $275.0 million up to $467.2 million at 0% reimbursement, and 80% of losses in excess of $467.2 million with respect to covered assets. As of December 31, 2013, we do not expect losses to exceed $275.0 million.

FDIC Indemnification Asset

Because the FDIC will reimburse Old National for losses incurred on certain acquired loans, an indemnification asset is recorded at fair value at the acquisition date. The indemnification asset is recognized at the same time as the indemnified loans, and measured on the same basis, subject to collectibility or contractual limitations. The indemnification asset, on the acquisition date, reflects the reimbursements expected to be received from the FDIC, using an appropriate discount rate, which reflects counterparty credit risk and other uncertainties. Reimbursement claims are submitted to the FDIC and the receivable is reduced when the FDIC pays the claim. At December 31, 2013, the FDIC loss sharing asset was $88.5 million and was comprised of a $73.7 million FDIC indemnification asset and a $14.8 million FDIC loss share receivable. The loss share receivable represents actual incurred losses where reimbursement has not yet been received from the FDIC. The indemnification asset represents future cash flows we expect to collect from the FDIC under the loss sharing agreements and the amount related to the estimated improvements in cash flow expectations that are being amortized over the same period for which those improved cash flows are being accreted into income. At December 31, 2013, $41.5 million of the FDIC indemnification asset is related to expected indemnification payments and $32.2 million is expected to be amortized and reported in noninterest income as an offset to future accreted interest income.

Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets

Goodwill and other intangible assets at December 31, 2013, totaled $378.7 million, an increase of $10.7 million compared to $368.0 million at December 31, 2012. During the third quarter of 2013, we recorded $16.8 million of goodwill and other intangible assets associated with the acquisition of 24 retail bank branches from Bank of America, all of which is included in the “Banking” column for segment reporting. During the second quarter of 2013, Old National recorded $0.6 million of goodwill primarily related to the final pension settlement associated with IBT. This was allocated to the “Banking” segment. During the fourth quarter of 2013, we increased customer business relationships by $1.3 million related to the purchase of an insurance book of business, which is included in the “Insurance” segment.

Assets Held for Sale

Assets held for sale were $9.1 million at December 31, 2013 compared to $15.0 million at December 31, 2012. Included in assets held for sale are four facilities associated with the Monroe Bancorp acquisition. The decrease is due to the branch sales that occurred in the first and fourth quarters of 2013.

Other Assets

Other assets have decreased $14.7 million, or 6.2%, since December 31, 2012 primarily as a result of decreases in deferred tax assets, prepaid FDIC expense and the fair value of derivative financial instruments.

Funding

Total average funding, comprised of deposits and wholesale borrowings, was $8.181 billion at December 31, 2013, an increase of 9.5% from $7.469 billion at December 31, 2012. Total deposits were $7.211 billion, including $6.193 billion in transaction accounts and $1.018 billion in time deposits at December 31, 2013. Total deposits decreased 0.9% or $68.1 million compared to December 31, 2012. The decrease from December 31, 2012 is partially attributable to the $178.3 million of deposits that were sold in conjunction with our branch sales in the first and fourth quarters of 2013 along with a decrease in higher cost certificates of deposit that reached maturity. Offsetting these decreases are $504.6 million from the Bank of America branch acquisition. Noninterest-bearing demand deposits increased 0.9% or $18.7 million compared to December 31, 2012. Savings deposits increased 3.9% or $72.3 million. Money market deposits increased 53.3% or $156.0 million compared to December 31, 2012. NOW deposits decreased 2.8%, or $51.7 million, while time deposits decreased 20.6% or $263.3 million compared to December 31, 2012. Year over year we experienced an increase in noninterest-bearing demand deposits.

We use wholesale funding to augment deposit funding and to help maintain our desired interest rate risk position. Wholesale borrowing as a percentage of total funding was 12.4% at December 31, 2013, compared to 10.2% at December 31, 2012. The increase in wholesale funding was in anticipation of the pending branch acquisition from Bank of America. The deposit funding assumed in the transaction replaced the majority of the increase in short-term and other borrowings that had occurred earlier in 2013. Over the past year, we have reduced the cost of other borrowings by changing the composition of other borrowings. During the first nine months of 2013, we terminated $50.0 million of FHLB advances and restructured $33.4 million of FHLB advances. During the fourth quarter of 2012, we terminated $50.0 million of FHLB advances. On June 30, 2012 we redeemed $13.0 million of subordinated notes and $3.0 million of trust preferred securities. See Notes 11 and 12 to the consolidated financial statements for additional details on our financing activities.

The following table details the average balances of all funding sources for the years ended December 31.

Accrued Expenses and Other Liabilities

Accrued expenses and other liabilities decreased $53.3 million, or 22.0%, since December 31, 2012 primarily as a result of decreases in accrued pension expense and tax liabilities combined with fluctuations in the fair value of derivative financial instruments.

Capital

Shareholders’ equity totaled $1.163 billion or 12.13% of total assets at December 31, 2013, and $1.195 billion or 12.5% of total assets at December 31, 2012.

We paid cash dividends of $0.40 per share in 2013, which decreased equity by $40.3 million. We declared cash dividends on common stock of $0.36 per share in 2012, which decreased equity by $34.7 million. We repurchased shares of our stock, reducing shareholders’ equity by $24.3 million in 2013 and $4.0 million in 2012. During 2013, we repurchased 1,639,124 shares of our common stock under our buyback program. During the fourth quarter of 2012, we repurchased 250,000 shares of our common stock under our buyback program. The remaining repurchases related primarily to our employee stock based compensation plans. The change in unrealized losses on investment securities decreased equity by $80.2 million in 2013 and increased equity by $13.0 million in 2012. Shares issued for reinvested dividends, stock options, restricted stock and stock compensation plans increased shareholders’ equity by $6.0 million in 2013, compared to $4.7 million in 2012.

Capital Adequacy

Old National and the banking industry are subject to various regulatory capital requirements administered by the federal banking agencies. For additional information on capital adequacy see Note 22 to the consolidated financial statements.

RISK MANAGEMENT

Overview

Management, with the oversight of the Board of Directors, has in place company-wide structures, processes, and controls for managing and mitigating risk. The following discussion addresses the three major risks we face: credit, market, and liquidity.

Credit Risk

Credit risk represents the risk of loss arising from an obligor’s inability or failure to meet contractual payment or performance terms. Our primary credit risks result from our investment and lending activities.

Investment Activities

While the overall residential real estate market has stabilized, we carry a higher exposure to loss with certain of our non-agency collateralized mortgage obligations. Of the four non-agency collateralized mortgage obligations we carried at December 31, 2013, three were rated below investment grade. The total market value of these four securities was $17.4 million at December 31, 2013 and represents less than 1% of our available-for-sale securities portfolio. The unrealized gain on these securities at December 31, 2013, was approximately $0.4 million. Deterioration in the performance of the underlying loan collateral could result in deterioration in the performance of our asset-backed securities. During 2013, one non-agency mortgage-backed security that was below investment grade paid down and two non-agency mortgage-backed securities were sold. There was no other-than-temporary-impairment recorded in 2013 on these securities. During the third quarter of 2012, we sold three non-agency mortgage-backed securities with an amortized cost of approximately $39.5 million that were below investment grade. During the second quarter of 2012, we sold one non-agency mortgage-backed security with an amortized cost of approximately $1.4 million that was below investment grade. During 2012, we experienced $0.9 million of other-than-temporary-impairment losses on six of these securities, all of which was recorded as a credit loss in earnings.

We also carry a higher exposure to loss in our pooled trust preferred securities, which are collateralized debt obligations, due to illiquidity in that market and the performance of the underlying collateral. At December 31, 2013, we had pooled trust preferred securities with a fair value of approximately $8.0 million, or 0.34% of the available-for-sale securities portfolio. During 2013, we experienced $1.0 million of other-than-temporary-impairment losses on one of these securities, which was recorded as a credit loss in earnings. These securities remained classified as available-for-sale and at December 31, 2013, the unrealized loss on our pooled trust preferred securities was approximately $11.2 million. During 2012, we experienced $0.5 million of other-than-temporary-impairment on two of these securities, all of which was recorded as a credit loss in earnings.

The remaining mortgage-backed securities are backed by U.S. government-sponsored or federal agencies. Municipal bonds, corporate bonds and other debt securities are evaluated by reviewing the credit-worthiness of the issuer and general market conditions. We do not have the intent to sell these securities and it is likely that we will not be required to sell these securities before their anticipated recovery.

Included in the held-to-maturity category at December 31, 2013 are approximately $35.4 million of agency mortgage-backed securities and $556.7 million of municipal securities at amortized cost. During the third quarter of 2013, municipal securities with a fair value of $357.8 million were transferred from the available-for-sale portfolio to the held-to-maturity portfolio.

Counterparty Exposure

Counterparty exposure is the risk that the other party in a financial transaction will not fulfill its obligation. We define counterparty exposure as nonperformance risk in transactions involving federal funds sold and purchased, repurchase agreements, correspondent bank relationships, and derivative contracts with companies in the financial services industry. Old National’s net counterparty exposure was an asset of $648.2 million at December 31, 2013. Our Discount Committee reviews and approves our exposure limits annually, and collateral is pledged when applicable. We do not have high concentration risk in any given relationship.

Lending Activities

Commercial

Commercial and industrial loans are made primarily for the purpose of financing equipment acquisition, expansion, working capital, and other general business purposes. Lease financing consists of direct financing leases and are used by commercial customers to finance capital purchases ranging from computer equipment to transportation equipment. The credit decisions for these transactions are based upon an assessment of the overall financial capacity of the applicant. A determination is made as to the applicant’s ability to repay in accordance with the proposed terms as well as an overall assessment of the risks involved. In addition to an evaluation of the applicant’s financial condition, a determination is made of the probable adequacy of the primary and secondary sources of repayment, such as additional collateral or personal guarantees, to be relied upon in the transaction. Credit agency reports of the applicant’s credit history supplement the analysis of the applicant’s creditworthiness.

Commercial mortgages and construction loans are offered to real estate investors, developers, and builders primarily domiciled in the geographic market areas we serve, primarily Indiana, southeast Illinois, western Kentucky and southwestern Michigan. These loans are secured by first mortgages on real estate at loan-to-value (“LTV”) margins deemed appropriate for the property type, quality, location and sponsorship. Generally, these LTV ratios do not exceed 80%. The commercial properties are predominantly non-residential properties such as retail centers, apartments, industrial properties and, to a lesser extent, more specialized properties. Substantially all of our commercial real estate loans are secured by properties located in our primary market area.

In the underwriting of our commercial real estate loans, we obtain appraisals for the underlying properties. Decisions to lend are based on the economic viability of the property and the creditworthiness of the borrower. In evaluating a proposed commercial real estate loan, we primarily emphasize the ratio of the property’s projected net cash flows to the loan’s debt service requirement. The debt service coverage ratio normally is not less than 120% and it is computed after deduction for a vacancy factor and property expenses as appropriate. In addition, a personal guarantee of the loan or a portion thereof is often required from the principal(s) of the borrower. We require title insurance insuring the priority of our lien, fire, and extended coverage casualty insurance, and flood insurance, if appropriate, in order to protect our security interest in the underlying property. In addition, business interruption insurance or other insurance may be required.

Construction loans are underwritten against projected cash flows derived from rental income, business income from an owner-occupant or the sale of the property to an end-user. We may mitigate the risks associated with these types of loans by requiring fixed-price construction contracts, performance and payment bonding, controlled disbursements, and pre-sale contracts or pre-lease agreements.

Consumer

We offer a variety of first mortgage and junior lien loans to consumers within our markets, with residential home mortgages comprising our largest consumer loan category. These loans are secured by a primary residence and are underwritten using traditional underwriting systems to assess the credit risks of the consumer. Decisions are primarily based on LTV ratios, debt-to-income (“DTI”) ratios, liquidity and credit scores. A maximum LTV ratio of 80% is generally required, although higher levels are permitted with mortgage insurance or other mitigating factors. We offer fixed rate mortgages and variable rate mortgages with interest rates that are subject to change every year after the first, third, fifth, or seventh year, depending on the product and are based on fully-indexed rates such as the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”). We do not offer interest-only loans, payment-option facilities, sub-prime loans, or any product with negative amortization.

Table of Contents

Home equity loans are secured primarily by second mortgages on residential property of the borrower. The underwriting terms for the home equity product generally permits borrowing availability, in the aggregate, up to 90% of the appraised value of the collateral property at the time of origination. We offer fixed and variable rate home equity loans, with variable rate loans underwritten at fully-indexed rates. Decisions are primarily based on LTV ratios, DTI ratios, liquidity, and credit scores. We do not offer home equity loan products with reduced documentation.

Automobile loans include loans and leases secured by new or used automobiles. We originate automobile loans and leases primarily on an indirect basis through selected dealerships. We require borrowers to maintain collision insurance on automobiles securing consumer loans, with us listed as loss payee. Our procedures for underwriting automobile loans include an assessment of an applicant’s overall financial capacity, including credit history and the ability to meet existing obligations and payments on the proposed loan. Although an applicant’s creditworthiness is the primary consideration, the underwriting process also includes a comparison of the value of the collateral security to the proposed loan amount.

Asset Quality

Community-based lending personnel, along with region-based independent underwriting and analytic support staff, extend credit under guidelines established and administered by our Enterprise Risk Committee. This committee, which meets quarterly, is made up of outside directors. The committee monitors credit quality through its review of information such as delinquencies, credit exposures, peer comparisons, problem loans and charge-offs. In addition, the committee reviews and approves recommended loan policy changes to assure it remains appropriate for the current lending environment.

We lend primarily to small- and medium-sized commercial and commercial real estate clients in various industries including manufacturing, agribusiness, transportation, mining, wholesaling and retailing. At December 31, 2013, we had no concentration of loans in any single industry exceeding 10% of our portfolio and had no exposure to foreign borrowers or sovereign debt. Our policy is to concentrate our lending activity in the geographic market areas we serve, primarily Indiana, southeast Illinois, western Kentucky and southwest Michigan. We are experiencing a slow and gradual improvement in the economy of our principal markets. Management expects that trends in under-performing, criticized and classified loans will be influenced by the degree to which the economy strengthens or weakens.

During the third quarter of 2011, Old National acquired the banking operations of Integra in an FDIC assisted transaction. As of December 31, 2012, acquired loans totaled $259.5 million and there was $13.7 million of other real estate owned. The Company entered into separate loss sharing agreements with the FDIC providing for specified credit loss protection for substantially all acquired single family residential loans, commercial loans, and other real estate owned. In accordance with accounting for business combinations, there was no allowance brought forward on any of the acquired loans, as the credit losses evident in the loans were included in the determination of the fair value of the loans at the acquisition date. At December 31, 2013, approximately $212.4 million of loans, net of allowance, and $13.7 million of other real estate owned are covered by the loss sharing agreements. Under the terms of the loss sharing agreements, the FDIC will reimburse Old National for 80% of losses up to $275.0 million. These covered assets are included in our summary of under-performing, criticized and classified assets found below.

(3) Includes 4 pooled trust preferred securities, 3 non-agency mortgage-backed securities and 4 corporate securities at December 31, 2013.
(4) Because the acquired loans from Monroe, Integra and Indiana Community were recorded at fair value in accordance with ASC 805 at the date of acquisition, the credit risk is incorporated in the fair value recorded. No allowance for loan losses is recorded on the acquisition date.
(5) The Company entered into separate loss sharing agreements with the FDIC providing for specified credit loss protection for substantially all acquired single family residential loans, commercial loans and other real estate owned. At December 31, 2013, we expect eighty percent of any losses incurred on these covered assets to be reimbursed to Old National by the FDIC.
(6) Includes approximately $38.3 million, $156.8 million and $201.3 million for 2013, 2012 and 2011, respectively, of purchased credit impaired loans that are categorized as nonaccrual because the collection of principal or interest is doubtful. These loans are accounted for under FASB ASC 310-30 and accordingly treated as performing assets.

Nonaccrual loans decreased $125.9 million from December 31, 2012 to December 31, 2013 primarily as a result of a decrease in our acquired covered nonaccrual loans. Nonaccrual loans, however, have remained at elevated levels since the acquisition of Monroe Bancorp and the FDIC-assisted acquisition of Integra in 2011. Because the acquired loans from Monroe Bancorp, Integra, IBT and the Bank of America branches were recorded at fair value in accordance with ASC 805 at the date of acquisition, the credit risk is incorporated in the fair value recorded. No allowance for loan losses is recorded on the acquisition date. As a percent of nonaccrual loans (excluding covered loans), the allowance for loan losses was 43.19% at December 31, 2013, compared to 32.61% at December 31, 2012 and 49.53% at December 31, 2011. Included in nonaccrual loans at December 31, 2013, December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were $38.3 million, $156.8 million and $201.3 million, respectively, of purchased credit impaired loans that were included in the nonaccrual category because the collection of principal or interest is doubtful. However, they are accounted for under FASB ASC 310-30 and accordingly treated as performing assets. We would expect our nonaccrual loans to remain at elevated levels until management can work through and resolve these purchased credit impaired loans.

Interest income of approximately $5.9 million and $6.0 million would have been recorded on nonaccrual and renegotiated loans outstanding at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, if such loans had been accruing interest throughout the year in accordance with their original terms. Excluding purchased credit impaired loans accounted for under ASC 310-30, the amount of interest income actually recorded on nonaccrual and renegotiated loans was $1.6 million and $1.7 million in 2013 and 2012, respectively. We had $33.1 million of renegotiated loans which are included in nonaccrual loans at December 31, 2013 and $22.1 million of renegotiated loans which were included in nonaccrual loans at December 31, 2012.

Criticized and classified assets decreased $154.3 million from December 31, 2012 to December 31, 2013, primarily as a result of decreases in covered criticized and classified assets and other classified assets. Other classified assets include investment securities that fell below investment grade rating.

OREO decreased $16.1 million from December 31, 2012 to December 31, 2013, primarily as a result of a decrease in our covered OREO due to sales out-pacing foreclosures.

Old National may choose to restructure the contractual terms of certain loans. The decision to restructure a loan, versus aggressively enforcing the collection of the loan, may benefit Old National by increasing the ultimate probability of collection.

Any loans that are modified are reviewed by Old National to identify if a troubled debt restructuring (“TDR”) has occurred, which is when, for economic or legal reasons related to a borrower’s financial difficulties, the Bank grants a concession to the borrower that it would not otherwise consider. Terms may be modified to fit the ability of the borrower to repay in line with its current financial status. During the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, the terms of certain loans were modified as troubled debt restructurings. The modification of the terms of such loans included one or a combination of the following: a reduction of the stated interest rate of the loan, an extension of the maturity date at a stated rate of interest lower than the current market rate of new debt with similar risk, or a permanent reduction of the recorded investment of the loan.

Loans modified in a troubled debt restructuring are typically placed on nonaccrual status until the Company determines the future collection of principal and interest is reasonably assured, which generally requires that the borrower demonstrate a period of performance according to the restructured terms for six months.

If we are unable to resolve a nonperforming loan issue the credit will be charged off when it is apparent there will be a loss. For large commercial type loans, each relationship is individually analyzed for evidence of apparent loss based on quantitative benchmarks or subjectively based upon certain events or particular circumstances. It is our policy to charge off small commercial loans scored through our small business credit center with contractual balances under $250,000 that have been placed on nonaccrual status or became ninety days or more delinquent, without regard to the collateral position. For residential and consumer loans, a charge off is recorded at the time foreclosure is initiated or when the loan becomes 120 to 180 days past due, whichever is earlier.

For commercial and industrial troubled debt restructurings, an allocated reserve is established within the allowance for loan losses for the difference between the carrying value of the loan and its computed fair value. To determine the fair value of the loan, one of the following methods is selected: (1) the present value of expected cash flows discounted at the loan’s original effective interest rate, (2) the loan’s observable market price, or (3) the fair value of the collateral, if the loan is collateral dependent. The allocated reserve is established as the difference between the carrying value of the loan and the collectable value. If there are significant changes in the amount or timing of the loan’s expected future cash flows, impairment is recalculated and the valuation allowance is adjusted accordingly.

For consumer and residential troubled debt restructurings, an additional amount is added to the loan loss reserve that represents the difference in the present value of the cash flows between the original terms and the new terms of the modified loan, using the original effective interest rate of the loan as a discount rate.

At December 31, 2013, our troubled debt restructurings consisted of $22.5 million of commercial loans, $22.6 million of commercial real estate loans, $1.4 million of consumer loans and $2.4 million of residential loans, totaling $48.9 million. Approximately $33.1 million of the troubled debt restructurings at December 31, 2013 were included with nonaccrual loans. As of December 31, 2013, Old National has allocated specific reserves of $2.1 million to commercial loans and $2.0 million to commercial real estate loans for loans that have been modified in troubled debt restructurings. At December 31, 2012, our troubled debt restructurings consisted of $12.7 million of commercial loans, $18.4 million of commercial real estate loans, $0.5 million of consumer loans and $0.5 million of residential loans, totaling $32.1 million. Approximately $22.1 million of the troubled debt restructurings at December 31, 2012 were included with nonaccrual loans. As of December 31, 2012, Old National had allocated specific reserves of $3.7 million to commercial loans and $2.5 million to commercial real estate loans for loans that had been modified in troubled debt restructurings.

The terms of certain other loans were modified during the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 that did not meet the definition of a troubled debt restructuring. It is our process to review all classified and criticized loans that, during the period, have been renewed, have entered into a forbearance agreement, have gone from principal and interest to interest only, or have extended the maturity date. In order to determine whether a borrower is experiencing financial difficulty, an evaluation is performed of the probability that the borrower will be in payment default on its debt in the foreseeable future without the modification. The evaluation is performed under our internal underwriting policy. We also evaluate whether a concession has been granted or if we were adequately compensated through a market interest rate, additional collateral or a bona fide guarantee. We also consider whether the modification was insignificant relative to the other terms of the agreement or if the delay in a payment was 90 days or less.

Purchased credit impaired (“PCI”) loans are not considered impaired until after the point at which there has been a degradation of cash flows below our expected cash flows at acquisition. If a PCI loan is subsequently modified, and meets the definition of a TDR, it will be removed from PCI accounting and accounted for as a TDR only if the PCI loan was being accounted for individually. If the purchased credit impaired loan is being accounted for as part of a pool, it will not be removed from the pool. As of December 31, 2013, it has not been necessary to remove any loans from PCI accounting.

In general, once a modified loan is considered a TDR, the loan will always be considered a TDR, and therefore impaired, until it is paid in full, otherwise settled, sold or charged off. However, our policy also permits for loans to be removed from troubled debt restructuring status in the years following the restructuring if the following two conditions are met: (1) The restructuring agreement specifies an interest rate equal to or greater than the rate that the Company was willing to accept at the time of the restructuring for a new loan with comparable risk, and (2) the loan is not impaired based on the terms specified by the restructuring agreement.

To provide for the risk of loss inherent in extending credit, we maintain an allowance for loan losses. The allowance is maintained at a level believed adequate by management to absorb probable losses inherent in the loan portfolio. Management’s evaluation of the adequacy of the allowance is an estimate based on reviews of individual loans, pools of homogeneous loans, historical loss experience, and assessments of the impact of current economic conditions on the portfolio.

The allowance for loan losses declined $7.6 million, or 13.9%, from December 31, 2012 to December 31, 2013. The lower allowance for loan losses and provision expense were attributable to the following factors: (1) the loss factors applied to our performing loan portfolio have decreased over time as charge-offs were substantially lower, (2) recoveries associated with our purchased credit impaired loans accounted for under ASC310-30, (3) the continuing trend in improved credit quality, and (4) a decrease in our commercial real estate loan balances (which carry higher loss rates than other loan categories) in conjunction with improving average asset quality ratings on the remaining commercial real estate loans in our portfolio.

Net charge-offs totaled $5.3 million in 2013 and $8.3 million in 2012. There were no industry segments representing a significant share of total net charge-offs. Net charge-offs to average loans declined to 0.10% for 2013 compared to 0.17% for 2012. The allowance to average loans, which ranged from 0.92% to 1.94% for the last five years, was 0.92% at December 31, 2013. Management will continue its efforts to reduce the level of non-performing loans and may consider the possibility of additional sales of troubled and non-performing loans, which could result in additional write-downs to the allowance for loan losses.

Because the acquired loans from Monroe Bancorp, Integra, IBT and the Bank of America branches were recorded at fair value in accordance with ASC 805 at the date of acquisition, the credit risk is incorporated in the fair value recorded. No allowance for loan losses is recorded on the acquisition date. We would expect that as the fair value mark is accreted into income over future periods, a reserve will be established to absorb credit deterioration or adverse changes in expected cash flows. Through December 31, 2013, $2.5 million and $5.5 million had been reserved for these purchased credits from Monroe Bancorp and Integra, respectively.

We also maintain an allowance for losses on unfunded commercial lending commitments and letters of credit to provide for the risk of loss inherent in these arrangements. The allowance is computed using a methodology similar to that used to determine the allowance for loan losses, modified to take into account the probability of a drawdown on the commitment. The $2.7 million reserve for unfunded loan commitments at December 31, 2013 is classified as a liability account on the balance sheet. The reserve for unfunded loan commitments was $4.0 million at December 31, 2012. The lower reserve is the result of lower loss rates and fluctuation in line usage.

The following table details the allowance for loan losses by loan category and the percent of loans in each category compared to total loans at December 31.

Market Risk

Market risk is the risk that the estimated fair value of our assets, liabilities, and derivative financial instruments will decline as a result of changes in interest rates or financial market volatility, or that our net income will be significantly reduced by interest rate changes.

The objective of our interest rate management process is to maximize net interest income while operating within acceptable limits established for interest rate risk and maintaining adequate levels of funding and liquidity.

Potential cash flows, sales, or replacement value of many of our assets and liabilities, especially those that earn or pay interest, are sensitive to changes in the general level of interest rates. This interest rate risk arises primarily from our normal business activities of gathering deposits and extending loans. Many factors affect our exposure to changes in interest rates, such as general economic and financial conditions, customer preferences, historical pricing relationships, and re-pricing characteristics of financial instruments. Our earnings can also be affected by the monetary and fiscal policies of the U.S. Government and its agencies, particularly the Federal Reserve Board.

In managing interest rate risk, we, through the Funds Management Committee, a committee of the Board of Directors, establish guidelines, for asset and liability management, including measurement of short and long-term sensitivities to changes in interest rates. Based on the results of our analysis, we may use different techniques to manage changing trends in interest rates including:

Table of Contents
    adjusting balance sheet mix or altering interest rate characteristics of assets and liabilities;

 

    changing product pricing strategies;

 

    modifying characteristics of the investment securities portfolio; or

 

    using derivative financial instruments, to a limited degree.

A key element in our ongoing process is to measure and monitor interest rate risk using a Net Interest Income at Risk simulation to model the interest rate sensitivity of the balance sheet and to quantify the impact of changing interest rates on Old National. The model quantifies the effects of various possible interest rate scenarios on projected net interest income over a one-year and a two-year cumulative horizon. The model assumes a semi-static balance sheet and measures the impact on net interest income relative to a base case scenario of hypothetical changes in interest rates over 24 months. The scenarios include prepayment assumptions, changes in the level of interest rates, the shape of the yield curve, and spreads between market interest rates in order to capture the impact from re-pricing, yield curve, option, and basis risks.

Our December 31, 2013 simulation scenarios assume the following market interest rates with an instantaneous shift from current interest rates.

A key element in the measurement and modeling of interest rate risk are the re-pricing assumptions of our transaction deposit accounts, which have no contractual maturity dates. We assume this deposit base is comprised of both core and more volatile balances and consists of both non-interest bearing and interest bearing accounts. Core deposit balances are assumed to be less interest rate sensitive and provide longer term funding. Volatile balances are assumed to be more interest rate sensitive and shorter in term. As part of our semi-static balance sheet modeling, we assume interest rates paid on the volatile deposits move in conjunction with changes in interest rates, in order to retain these deposits. This may include current non-interest bearing accounts.

Results of our simulation modeling project that our net interest income could change as follows over one-year and two-year horizons, relative to our base case scenarios at December 31st.

At December 31, 2013, our simulated exposure to an increase in interest rates shows that an immediate increase in rates of 1.00% will decrease our net interest income by $5.5 million (-2.11%) over a one year horizon compared to our base case scenario. Rate increases of 2.00% and 3.00% would cause net interest income to decline by $18.2 million (-6.97%) and $30.4 million (-11.63%), respectively. Over a two-year horizon, an immediate increase in rates of 1.00% will decrease our net interest income by $1.2 million (-0.22%). For the up 2.00% scenario, net interest income decreases by $17.3 million (-3.34%) and, in an up 3.00% scenario, net interest income decreases $35.6 million (-6.86%) compared to our base case scenario. As a result of the already low interest rate environment, we did not include a 1.00% falling scenario.

From December 31, 2012 to December 31, 2013, our net interest income results were primarily impacted by an asset mix change resulting in lower floating rate balances and a repositioning of the investment portfolio. Throughout the year, the liability mix reflected a migration to lower cost deposit products and floating rate liabilities. Finally, since early May 2013 interest rates have increased causing a steepening of the yield curve resulting in greater sensitivity to higher absolute rates.

In addition to reporting our interest rate sensitivity assuming an instantaneous shift in rates of 1.00%, 2.00% and 3.00% across the interest rate curve, we have included the following modeling scenarios; short-end flattening, long-end flattening, short-end steepening, and long-end steepening. The shape of the yield curve can have a significant impact on our net interest income as the above table illustrates. A long-end flattening of the yield curve means that rates on the short-end of the curve remain stationary while long-end rates decline by 1.00%. Our modeling projects in this scenario that our net interest income would decline by $6.3 million (-1.22%) over a two year horizon. This is caused by longer term assets re-pricing at lower rates, while pricing on deposits, which are more closely tied to short-term rates, remains static. By contrast, in a long-end steepening scenario, short-term rates remain constant while rates on the long-end increase by 1.00%. In this scenario, our net interest income is projected to increase by $5.3 million (1.02%) over a two year horizon, since assets re-price at higher rates while rates on our deposits remain constant. This long-end steepening scenario most closely resembles the recent movement in interest rates since early May 2013.

Old National also has longer term interest rate risk exposure, which may not be appropriately measured by Net Interest Income at Risk modeling. We use Economic Value of Equity (“EVE”) sensitivity analysis to evaluate the impact of long term cash flows on earnings and capital. EVE modeling involves discounting present values of all cash flows under different interest rate scenarios. The discounted present value of all cash flows represents our economic value of equity. The amount of base case economic value and its sensitivity to shifts in interest rates provide a measure of the longer term re-pricing and option risk in the balance sheet. EVE simulation results are shown below, relative to base case.

At December 31, 2013, Old National’s EVE scenarios indicate negative changes to EVE in the up 1.00%, 2.00%, and 3.00% scenarios. These changes in EVE modeling results were driven primarily the absolute higher level of interest rates year over year and the changes in mix of the balance sheet noted earlier. Modeling results at December 31, 2013, indicate that we remain within our acceptable risk tolerance levels.

Because the models are driven by expected behavior in various interest rate scenarios and many factors besides market interest rates affect our net interest income and value, we recognize that model outputs are not guarantees of actual results. For this reason, we model many different combinations of interest rates and balance sheet assumptions to understand its overall sensitivity to market interest rate changes.

Old National took several actions in anticipation of further increases in interest rates. We entered in to eight forward starting pay-fixed interest rate swaps against variable-rate Home Loan Bank advances. We also sold approximately $97 million in longer term, fixed rate residential real estate mortgages. Finally, $370 million of longer duration bonds were transferred from the available for sale portfolio to the held to maturity portfolio, lessening the impact to our tangible equity capital in a rising rate environment.

We use derivatives, primarily interest rate swaps, as one method to manage interest rate risk in the ordinary course of business. We also provide derivatives to our commercial customers in connection with managing interest rate risk. Our derivatives had a total estimated fair value gain of $2.36 million at December 31, 2013, compared to an estimated fair value gain of $6.5 million at December 31, 2012. In addition, the notional amount of derivatives increased by $357 million from December 31, 2012. See Note 19 to the consolidated financial statements for further discussion of derivative financial instruments.

Liquidity Risk

Liquidity risk arises from the possibility that we may not be able to satisfy current or future financial commitments, or may become unduly reliant on alternative funding sources. The Funds Management Committee establishes liquidity risk guidelines and, along with the Balance Sheet Management Committee, monitors liquidity risk. The objective of liquidity management is to ensure we have the ability to fund balance sheet growth and meet deposit and debt obligations in a timely and cost-effective manner. Management monitors liquidity through a regular review of asset and liability maturities, funding sources, and loan and deposit forecasts. We maintain strategic and contingency liquidity plans to ensure sufficient available funding to satisfy requirements for balance sheet growth, properly manage capital markets’ funding sources and to address unexpected liquidity requirements.

Loan repayments and maturing investment securities are a relatively predictable source of funds. However, deposit flows, calls of investment securities and prepayments of loans and mortgage-related securities are strongly influenced by interest rates, the housing market, general and local economic conditions, and competition in the marketplace. We continually monitor marketplace trends to identify patterns that might improve the predictability of the timing of deposit flows or asset prepayments.

Our ability to acquire funding at competitive prices is influenced by rating agencies’ views of our credit quality, liquidity, capital and earnings. All of the rating agencies place us in an investment grade that indicates a low risk of default. For both Old National and Old National Bank:

 

    Moody’s Investor Service downgraded Old National Bank’s Long Term Rating from A1 to A2 and changed its outlook from Negative to Stable on November 1, 2011. Old National Bank’s Short Term Rating was unchanged.

 

    Dominion Bond Rating Services (DBRS) confirmed our ratings and stable outlook on November 11, 2013. Subsequent to the confirmation, DBRS withdrew the ratings at its own discretion.

 

    Fitch Rating Service affirmed and withdrew its long-term and short-term ratings for both Old National Bancorp and Old National Bank on January 18, 2013, citing that Old National’s ratings are no longer relevant to Fitch’s rating coverage.

The Parent Company (Old National) has routine funding requirements consisting primarily of operating expenses, dividends to shareholders, debt service, net derivative cash flows and funds used for acquisitions. The Parent Company can obtain funding to meet its obligations from dividends and management fees collected from its subsidiaries, operating line of credit and through the issuance of debt securities. Additionally, the Parent Company has a shelf registration in place with the SEC permitting ready access to the public debt and equity markets. At December 31, 2013, the Parent Company’s other borrowings outstanding were $28.0 million.

Federal banking laws regulate the amount of dividends that may be paid by banking subsidiaries without prior approval. Prior regulatory approval is required if dividends to be declared in any year would exceed net earnings of the current year plus retained net profits for the preceding two years. Prior regulatory approval to pay dividends was not required in 2013 and is not currently required.

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

Off-balance sheet arrangements include commitments to extend credit and financial guarantees. Commitments to extend credit and financial guarantees are used to meet the financial needs of our customers. Our banking affiliates have entered into various agreements to extend credit, including loan commitments of $1.271 billion and standby letters of credit of $62.0 million at December 31, 2013. At December 31, 2013, approximately $1.205 billion of the loan commitments had fixed rates and $66 million had floating rates, with the floating interest rates ranging from 0% to 21%. At December 31, 2012, loan commitments were $1.253 billion and standby letters of credit were $63.4 million. The term of these off-balance sheet arrangements is typically one year or less.

During the second quarter of 2007, we entered into a risk participation in an interest rate swap. The interest rate swap had a notional amount of $8.0 million at December 31, 2013.

We rent certain premises and equipment under operating leases. See Note 20 to the consolidated financial statements for additional information on long-term lease arrangements.

We are party to various derivative contracts as a means to manage the balance sheet and our related exposure to changes in interest rates, to manage our residential real estate loan origination and sale activity, and to provide derivative contracts to our clients. Since the derivative liabilities recorded on the balance sheet change frequently and do not represent the amounts that may ultimately be paid under these contracts, these liabilities are not included in the table of contractual obligations presented above. Further discussion of derivative instruments is included in Note 19 to the consolidated financial statements.

In the normal course of business, various legal actions and proceedings are pending against us and our affiliates which are incidental to the business in which they are engaged. Further discussion of contingent liabilities is included in Note 20 to the consolidated financial statements.

In addition, liabilities recorded under FASB ASC 740-10 (FASB Interpretation No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes – an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109) are not included in the table because the amount and timing of any cash payments cannot be reasonably estimated. Further discussion of income taxes and liabilities recorded under FASB ASC 740-10 is included in Note 13 to the consolidated financial statements.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

Our accounting policies are described in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. Certain accounting policies require management to use significant judgment and estimates, which can have a material impact on the carrying value of certain assets and liabilities. We consider these policies to be critical accounting policies. The judgment and assumptions made are based upon historical experience or other factors that management believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. Because of the nature of the judgment and assumptions, actual results could differ from estimates, which could have a material affect on our financial condition and results of operations.

The following accounting policies materially affect our reported earnings and financial condition and require significant judgments and estimates. Management has reviewed these critical accounting estimates and related disclosures with our Audit Committee.

Table of Contents

Goodwill and Intangibles

 

    Description. For acquisitions, we are required to record the assets acquired, including identified intangible assets, and the liabilities assumed at their fair value. These often involve estimates based on third-party valuations, such as appraisals, or internal valuations based on discounted cash flow analyses or other valuation techniques that may include estimates of attrition, inflation, asset growth rates or other relevant factors. In addition, the determination of the useful lives over which an intangible asset will be amortized is subjective. Under FASB ASC 350 (SFAS No. 142 Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets), goodwill and indefinite-lived assets recorded must be reviewed for impairment on an annual basis, as well as on an interim basis if events or changes indicate that the asset might be impaired. An impairment loss must be recognized for any excess of carrying value over fair value of the goodwill or the indefinite-lived intangible asset.

 

    Judgments and Uncertainties. The determination of fair values is based on valuations using management’s assumptions of future growth rates, future attrition, discount rates, multiples of earnings or other relevant factors.

 

    Effect if Actual Results Differ From Assumptions. Changes in these factors, as well as downturns in economic or business conditions, could have a significant adverse impact on the carrying values of goodwill or intangible assets and could result in impairment losses affecting our financials as a whole and the individual lines of business in which the goodwill or intangibles reside.

Acquired Impaired Loans

 

    Description. Loans acquired with evidence of credit deterioration since inception and for which it is probable that all contractual payments will not be received are accounted for under ASC Topic 310-30, Loans and Debt Securities Acquired with Deteriorated Credit Quality (“ASC 310-30”). These loans are recorded at fair value at the time of acquisition, with no carryover of the related allowance for loan losses. Fair value of acquired loans is determined using a discounted cash flow methodology based on assumptions about the amount and timing of principal and interest payments, principal prepayments and principal defaults and losses, and current market rates. In recording the acquisition date fair values of acquired impaired loans, management calculates a non-accretable difference (the credit component of the purchased loans) and an accretable difference (the yield component of the purchased loans).

Over the life of the acquired loans, we continue to estimate cash flows expected to be collected on pools of loans sharing common risk characteristics, which are treated in the aggregate when applying various valuation techniques. We evaluate at each balance sheet date whether the present value of our pools of loans determined using the effective interest rates has decreased significantly and if so, recognize a provision for loan loss in our consolidated statement of income. For any significant increases in cash flows expected to be collected, we adjust the amount of accretable yield recognized on a prospective basis over the pool’s remaining life.

 

    Judgments and Uncertainties. These cash flow evaluations are inherently subjective as they require management to make estimates about expected cash flows, market conditions and other future events that are highly subjective in nature and subject to change.

 

    Effect if Actual Results Differ From Assumptions. Changes in these factors, as well as changing economic conditions will likely impact the carrying value of these acquired loans as well as the carrying value of any associated indemnification assets, as the FDIC will reimburse usfor losses incurred on certain acquired loans, but the shared-loss agreements may not fully offset the financial effects of such a situation.

FDIC Indemnification Asset

 

    Description. The FDIC Indemnification Asset results from the loss share agreement associated with our FDIC-assisted acquisition of Integra in 2011. This asset is measured separately from the related covered assets (loans and OREO) as it is not contractually embedded in those assets and is not transferable should we choose to dispose of the covered assets. The FDIC indemnification asset represents the discounted amount of estimated reimbursable losses from the FDIC for losses on covered assets. Pursuant to the terms of the loss sharing agreements, covered assets are subject to stated loss thresholds whereby the FDIC will reimburse Old National for 80% of losses up to $275.0 million, losses in excess of $275.0 million up to $467.2 million at 0%, and 80% of losses in excess of $467.2 million. The loss sharing agreements provide for five years of coverage on non-single family loans and ten years of coverage on single family loans. Recoveries associated with non-single family loans are shared with the FDIC for three years beyond the loss share coverage period. The FDIC indemnification asset was recorded at its estimated fair value at the time of the FDIC-assisted transaction. The fair value was estimated using the projected cash flows related to the loss sharing agreements based on the expected reimbursements for losses and the applicable loss sharing percentages. These cash flows are discounted to reflect the uncertainty of the timing of the loss sharing reimbursement from the FDIC.

Accounting for the FDIC indemnification asset is closely related to the accounting for the underlying indemnified assets. We re-estimate the expected indemnification asset cash flows in conjunction with the periodic re-estimation of cash flows on covered loans accounted for under ASC Topic 310-30 and ASC Topic 310-20. Improvements in the credit quality or cash flow expectations of covered loans (reflected as an adjustment to yield and accreted into income over the remaining life of the loans) decrease the basis of the indemnification asset, with such decreases being amortized into income over (1) the remaining life of the loans or (2) the life of the loss share agreements, whichever is shorter. Declines in cash flow expectations on covered loans generally result in an increase in expected indemnification cash flows and are reflected as both FDIC loss sharing income and an increase to the indemnification asset.

 

    Judgments and Uncertainties. The cash flow evaluations are inherently subjective as they require management to make estimates about the amount and timing of expected cash flows, market conditions and other future events that are highly subjective in nature and subject to change.

 

    Effect if Actual Results Differ From Assumptions. Changes in these factors, as well as changing economic conditions will likely impact the carrying value of the indemnification asset. The estimated timing of our expected losses may be wrong and fall outside our coverage period resulting in impairment of our indemnification asset.

Allowance for Loan Losses

 

    Description. The allowance for loan losses is maintained at a level believed adequate by management to absorb probable incurred losses in the consolidated loan portfolio. Management’s evaluation of the adequacy of the allowance is an estimate based on reviews of individual loans, pools of homogeneous loans, assessments of the impact of current and anticipated economic conditions on the portfolio and historical loss experience. The allowance represents management’s best estimate, but significant downturns in circumstances relating to loan quality and economic conditions could result in a requirement for additional allowance. Likewise, an upturn in loan quality and improved economic conditions may allow a reduction in the required allowance. In either instance, unanticipated changes could have a significant impact on results of operations.

The allowance is increased through a provision charged to operating expense. Uncollectible loans are charged-off through the allowance. Recoveries of loans previously charged-off are added to the allowance. A loan is considered impaired when it is probable that contractual interest and principal payments will not be collected either for the amounts or by the dates as scheduled in the loan agreement. Our policy for recognizing income on impaired loans is to accrue interest unless a loan is placed on nonaccrual status. A loan is generally placed on nonaccrual status when principal or interest becomes 90 days past due unless it is well secured and in the process of collection, or earlier when concern exists as to the ultimate collectibility of principal or interest. We monitor the quality of our loan portfolio on an on-going basis and use a combination of detailed credit assessments by relationship managers and credit officers, historic loss trends, and economic and business environment factors in determining the allowance for loan losses. We record provisions for loan losses based on current loans outstanding, grade changes, mix of loans and expected losses. A detailed loan loss evaluation on an individual loan basis for our highest risk loans is performed quarterly. Management follows the progress of the economy and how it might affect our borrowers in both the near and the intermediate term. We have a formalized and disciplined independent loan review program to evaluate loan administration, credit quality and compliance with corporate loan standards. This program includes periodic reviews and regular reviews of problem loan reports, delinquencies and charge-offs.

Table of Contents
    Judgments and Uncertainties. We use migration analysis as a tool to determine the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses for performing commercial loans. Migration analysis is a statistical technique that attempts to estimate probable losses for existing pools of loans by matching actual losses incurred on loans back to their origination. Judgment is used to select and weight the historical periods which are most representative of the current environment.

We calculate migration analysis using several different scenarios based on varying assumptions to evaluate the widest range of possible outcomes. The migration-derived historical commercial loan loss rates are applied to the current commercial loan pools to arrive at an estimate of probable losses for the loans existing at the time of analysis. The amounts determined by migration analysis are adjusted for management’s best estimate of the effects of current economic conditions, loan quality trends, results from internal and external review examinations, loan volume trends, credit concentrations and various other factors.

We use historic loss ratios adjusted for expectations of future economic conditions to determine the appropriate level of allowance for consumer and residential real estate loans.

 

    Effect if Actual Results Differ From Assumptions. The allowance represents management’s best estimate, but significant downturns in circumstances relating to loan quality and economic conditions could result in a requirement for additional allowance. Likewise, an upturn in loan quality and improved economic conditions may allow a reduction in the required allowance. In either instance, unanticipated changes could have a significant impact on results of operations.

Management’s analysis of probable losses in the portfolio at December 31, 2013, resulted in a range for allowance for loan losses of $13.2 million. The range pertains to general (FASB ASC 310, Receivables/SFAS 5) reserves for both retail and performing commercial loans. Specific (FASB ASC 310, Receivables/SFAS 114) reserves do not have a range of probable loss. Due to the risks and uncertainty associated with the economy, our projection of FAS 5 loss rates inherent in the portfolio, and our selection of representative historical periods, we establish a range of probable outcomes (a high-end estimate and a low-end estimate) and evaluate our position within this range. The potential effect to net income based on our position in the range relative to the high and low endpoints is a decrease of $2.2 million and an increase of $6.4 million, respectively, after taking into account the tax effects. These sensitivities are hypothetical and are not intended to represent actual results.

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

    Description. As part of our overall interest rate risk management, we use derivative instruments to reduce exposure to changes in interest rates and market prices for financial instruments. The application of the hedge accounting policy requires judgment in the assessment of hedge effectiveness, identification of similar hedged item groupings and measurement of changes in the fair value of derivative financial instruments and hedged items. To the extent hedging relationships are found to be effective, as determined by FASB ASC 815 (SFAS No. 133 Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities) (“ASC Topic 815”), changes in fair value of the derivatives are offset by changes in the fair value of the related hedged item or recorded to other comprehensive income. Management believes hedge effectiveness is evaluated properly in preparation of the financial statements. All of the derivative financial instruments we use have an active market and indications of fair value can be readily obtained. We are not using the “short-cut” method of accounting for any fair value derivatives.

 

    Judgments and Uncertainties. The application of the hedge accounting policy requires judgment in the assessment of hedge effectiveness, identification of similar hedged item groupings and measurement of changes in the fair value of derivative financial instruments and hedged items.

To the extent hedging relationships are found to be effective, as determined by ASC Topic 815, changes in fair value of the derivatives are offset by changes in the fair value of the related hedged item or recorded to other comprehensive income. However, if in the future the derivative financial instruments used by us no longer qualify for hedge accounting treatment, all changes in fair value of the derivative would flow through the consolidated statements of income in other noninterest income, resulting in greater volatility in our earnings.

Income Taxes

 

    Description. We are subject to the income tax laws of the U.S., its states and the municipalities in which we operate. These tax laws are complex and subject to different interpretations by the taxpayer and the relevant government taxing authorities. We review income tax expense and the carrying value of deferred tax assets quarterly; and as new information becomes available, the balances are adjusted as appropriate. FASB ASC 740-10 (FIN 48) prescribes a recognition threshold of more-likely-than-not, and a measurement attribute for all tax positions taken or expected to be taken on a tax return, in order for those tax positions to be recognized in the financial statements. See Note 13 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for a further description of our provision and related income tax assets and liabilities.

 

    Judgments and Uncertainties. In establishing a provision for income tax expense, we must make judgments and interpretations about the application of these inherently complex tax laws. We must also make estimates about when in the future certain items will affect taxable income in the various tax jurisdictions. Disputes over interpretations of the tax laws may be subject to review/adjudication by the court systems of the various tax jurisdictions or may be settled with the taxing authority upon examination or audit.

 

    Effect if Actual Results Differ From Assumptions. Although management believes that the judgments and estimates used are reasonable, actual results could differ and we may be exposed to losses or gains that could be material. To the extent we prevail in matters for which reserves have been established, or are required to pay amounts in excess of our reserves, our effective income tax rate in a given financial statement period could be materially affected. An unfavorable tax settlement would result in an increase in our effective income tax rate in the period of resolution. A favorable tax settlement would result in a reduction in our effective income tax rate in the period of resolution.

Valuation of Securities

 

    Description. The fair value of our securities is determined with reference to price estimates. In the absence of observable market inputs related to items such as cash flow assumptions or adjustments to market rates, management judgment is used. Different judgments and assumptions used in pricing could result in different estimates of value.

When the fair value of a security is less than its amortized cost for an extended period, we consider whether there is an other-than-temporary-impairment in the value of the security. If, in management’s judgment, an other-than-temporary-impairment exists, the portion of the loss in value attributable to credit quality is transferred from accumulated other comprehensive loss as an immediate reduction of current earnings and the cost basis of the security is written down by this amount.

We consider the following factors when determining an other-than-temporary-impairment for a security or investment:

 

    The length of time and the extent to which the fair value has been less than amortized cost;

 

    The financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer;

 

    The underlying fundamentals of the relevant market and the outlook for such market for the near future;

 

    Our intent to sell the debt security or whether it is more likely than not that we will be required to sell the debt security before its anticipated recovery; and

 

    When applicable for purchased beneficial interests, the estimated cash flows of the securities are assessed for adverse changes.

Table of Contents

Quarterly, securities are evaluated for other-than-temporary-impairment in accordance with FASB ASC 320 (SFAS No. 115, Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities), and FASB ASC 325-10 (Emerging Issues Task Force No. 99-20, Recognition of Interest Income and Impairment on Purchased and Retained Beneficial Interest in Securitized Financial Assets) and FASB ASC 320-10 (FSP No. FAS 115-2 and FAS 124-2, Recognition and Presentation of Other-Than-Temporary Impairments). An impairment that is an “other-than-temporary-impairment” is a decline in the fair value of an investment below its amortized cost attributable to factors that indicate the decline will not be recovered over the anticipated holding period of the investment. Other-than-temporary-impairments result in reducing the security’s carrying value by the amount of credit loss. The credit component of the other-than-temporary-impairment loss is realized through the statement of income and the remainder of the loss remains in other comprehensive income.

 

    Judgments and Uncertainties. The determination of other-than-temporary-impairment is a subjective process, and different judgments and assumptions could affect the timing and amount of loss realization. In addition, significant judgments are required in determining valuation and impairment, which include making assumptions regarding the estimated prepayments, loss assumptions and interest cash flows.

 

    Effect if Actual Results Differ From Assumptions. Actual credit deterioration could be more or less severe than estimated. Upon subsequent review, if cash flows have significantly improved, the discount would be amortized into earnings over the remaining life of the debt security in a prospective manner based on the amount and timing of future cash flows. Additional credit deterioration resulting in an adverse change in cash flows would result in additional other-than-temporary impairment loss recorded in the income statement.

Management has discussed the development and selection of these critical accounting estimates with the Audit Committee and the Audit Committee has reviewed our disclosure relating to it in this “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”.

REPORT OF MANAGEMENT

MANAGEMENT’S RESPONSIBILITY FOR FINANCIAL REPORTING

Management is responsible for the preparation of the financial statements and related financial information appearing in this annual report on Form 10-K. The financial statements and notes have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and include some amounts which are estimates based upon currently available information and management’s judgment of current conditions and circumstances. Financial information throughout this annual report on Form 10-K is consistent with that in the financial statements.

Management maintains a system of internal accounting controls which is believed to provide, in all material respects, reasonable assurance that assets are safeguarded against loss from unauthorized use or disposition, transactions are properly authorized and recorded, and the financial records are reliable for preparing financial statements and maintaining accountability for assets. In addition, Old National has a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, a Senior Financial and Executive Officer Code of Ethics and Corporate Governance Guidelines that outline high levels of ethical business standards. We also had a third party perform an independent validation of our ethics program. Old National has also appointed a Chief Ethics Officer. All systems of internal accounting controls are based on management’s judgment that the cost of controls should not exceed the benefits to be achieved and that no system can provide absolute assurance that control objectives are achieved. Management believes Old National’s system provides the appropriate balance between cost of controls and the related benefits.

 

63


Table of Contents

In order to monitor compliance with this system of controls, Old National maintains an extensive internal audit program. Internal audit reports are issued to appropriate officers and significant audit exceptions, if any, are reviewed with management and the Audit Committee.

The Board of Directors, through an Audit Committee comprised solely of independent outside directors, oversees management’s discharge of its financial reporting responsibilities. The Audit Committee meets regularly with Old National’s independent registered public accounting firm, Crowe Horwath LLP, and the managers of internal audit and loan review. During these meetings, the committee meets privately with the independent registered public accounting firm as well as with internal audit and loan review personnel to review accounting, auditing, loan and financial reporting matters. The appointment of the independent registered public accounting firm is made by the Audit Committee.

The consolidated financial statements in this annual report on Form 10-K have been audited by Crowe Horwath LLP, for the purpose of determining that the consolidated financial statements are presented fairly, in all material respects in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Crowe Horwath LLP’s report on the financial statements follows.

MANAGEMENT’S REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING

The management of Old National is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. A company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Old National’s management assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013. In making this assessment, management used the criteria established in 1992 by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control - Integrated Framework. Based on that assessment Old National has concluded that, as of December 31, 2013, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting is effective. Old National’s independent registered public accounting firm has audited the effectiveness of Old National’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013 as stated in their report which follows.

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Old National Bancorp as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, changes in shareholders’ equity, and cash flows for each of the years in the three-year period ended December 31, 2013. We also have audited Old National Bancorp’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013, based on criteria established in 1992 in Internal ControlIntegrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). Old National Bancorp’s management is responsible for these financial statements, for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting, and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting included in the accompanying Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements and an opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control over financial reporting based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement and whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audits of financial statements included examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. Our audit of internal control over financial reporting included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists and testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. Our audits also included performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinions.

A company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Old National Bancorp as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the three-year period ended December 31, 2013 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Also in our opinion, Old National Bancorp maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013, based on criteria established in 1992 in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the COSO.
