3. NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

Accounting Standards Updates

ASU No. 2010-06, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (Topic 820)—Improving Disclosures About Fair Value Measurements.” ASU 2010-06 requires expanded disclosures related to fair value measurements including (i) the amounts of significant transfers of assets or liabilities between Levels 1 and 2 of the fair value hierarchy and the reasons for the transfers, (ii) the reasons for transfers of assets or liabilities in or out of Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy, with significant transfers disclosed separately, (iii) the policy for determining when transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy are recognized and (iv) for recurring fair value measurements of assets and liabilities in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy, a gross presentation of information about purchases, sales, issuances and settlements. ASU 2010-06 further clarifies that (i) fair value measurement disclosures should be provided for each class of assets and liabilities (rather than major category), which would generally be a subset of assets or liabilities within a line item in the statement of financial position and (ii) company’s should provide disclosures about the valuation techniques and inputs used to measure fair value for both recurring and nonrecurring fair value measurements for each class of assets and liabilities included in Levels 2 and 3 of the fair value hierarchy. The disclosures related to the gross presentation of purchases, sales, issuances and settlements of

assets and liabilities included in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy were required for the Company beginning January 1, 2011. The remaining disclosure requirements and clarifications made by ASU 2010-06 became effective for the Company on January 1, 2010.

ASU No. 2010-20, “Receivables (Topic 310)—Disclosures about the Credit Quality of Financing Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Losses.” ASU 2010-20 requires entities to provide disclosures designed to facilitate financial statement users’ evaluation of (i) the nature of credit risk inherent in the entity’s portfolio of financing receivables, (ii) how that risk is analyzed and assessed in arriving at the allowance for credit losses and (iii) the changes and reasons for those changes in the allowance for credit losses. Disclosures must be disaggregated by portfolio segment, the level at which an entity develops and documents a systematic method for determining its allowance for credit losses, and class of financing receivable, which is generally a disaggregation of portfolio segment. The required disclosures include, among other things, a rollforward of the allowance for credit losses as well as information about modified, impaired, non-accrual and past due loans and credit quality indicators. ASU 2010-20 became effective for the Company’s financial statements as of December 31, 2010, as it relates to disclosures required as of the end of a reporting period. Disclosures that relate to activity during a reporting period was required for the Company’s financial statements that include periods beginning on or after January 1, 2011.

ASU No. 2010-28, “Intangibles—Goodwill and Other (Topic 350)—When to Perform Step 2 of the Goodwill Impairment Test for Reporting Units with Zero or Negative Carrying Amounts.” ASU 2010-28 modifies Step 1 of the goodwill impairment test for reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts. For those reporting units, an entity is required to perform Step 2 of the goodwill impairment test if it is more likely than not that a goodwill impairment exists. In determining whether it is more likely than not that a goodwill impairment exists, an entity should consider whether there are any adverse qualitative factors indicating that an impairment may exist such as if an event occurs or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying amount. ASU 2010-28 became effective for the Company on January 1, 2011 and did not have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

ASU No. 2010-29, “Business Combinations (Topic 805)—Disclosure of Supplementary Pro Forma Information for Business Combinations.” ASU 2010-29 provides clarification regarding the acquisition date that should be used for reporting the pro forma financial information disclosures required by Topic 805 when comparative financial statements are presented. ASU 2010-29 also requires entities to provide a description of the nature and amount of material, nonrecurring pro forma adjustments that are directly attributable to the business combination. ASU 2010-29 is effective for the Company prospectively for business combinations occurring after December 31, 2010.

ASU No. 2011-01, “Deferral of the Effective Date of Disclosures About Troubled Debt Restructurings in Update No. 2010-20”. ASU 2011-01 temporarily deferred the effective date for disclosures related to troubled debt restructurings to coincide with the effective date of a proposed accounting standards update related to troubled debt restructurings, which is effective for periods ending after June 15, 2011.

ASU No. 2011-02, “A Creditor’s Determination of Whether a Restructuring is a Troubled Debt Restructuring”. ASU 2011-02 provides additional guidance or clarification to help determine whether a creditor has granted a concession and whether a debtor is experiencing financial difficulties for purposes of determining whether a restructuring constitutes a troubled debt restructuring. ASU 2011-02 will be effective for the Company on July 1, 2011, and applies retrospectively to restructurings occurring on or after January 1, 2011. The adoption of ASU 2011-02 is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

(i) Commercial and Industrial Loans. In nearly all cases, the Company’s commercial loans are made in the Company’s market areas and are underwritten on the basis of the borrower’s ability to service the debt from income. As a general practice, the Company takes as collateral a lien on any available real estate, equipment or other assets owned by the borrower and obtains a personal guaranty of the borrower or principal. Working capital loans are primarily collateralized by short-term assets whereas term loans are primarily collateralized by long-term assets. In general, commercial loans involve more credit risk than residential mortgage loans and commercial mortgage loans and, therefore, usually yield a higher return. The increased risk in commercial loans is due to the type of collateral securing these loans. The increased risk also derives from the expectation that commercial loans generally will be serviced principally from the operations of the business, and those operations may not be successful. Historical trends have shown these types of loans to have higher delinquencies than mortgage loans. As a result of these additional complexities, variables and risks, commercial loans require more thorough underwriting and servicing than other types of loans.

(ii) Commercial Mortgages. The Company makes commercial mortgage loans collateralized by owner-occupied and non-owner-occupied real estate to finance the purchase of real estate. The Company’s commercial mortgage loans are collateralized by first liens on real estate, typically have variable interest rates (or five year or less fixed rates) and amortize over a 15 to 20 year period. Payments on loans secured by such properties are often dependent on the successful operation or management of the properties. Accordingly, repayment of these loans may be subject to adverse conditions in the real estate market or the economy to a greater extent than other types of loans. The Company seeks to minimize these risks in a variety of ways, including giving careful consideration to the property’s operating history, future operating projections, current and projected occupancy, location and physical condition in connection with underwriting these loans. The underwriting analysis also includes credit verification, analysis of global cash flow, appraisals and a review of the financial condition of the borrower. At June 30, 2011, approximately 36.5% of the outstanding principal balance of the Company’s commercial real estate loans was secured by owner-occupied properties. At June 30, 2011, the Company had commercial real estate loans totaling $1.90 billion which include the categories of construction and land development loans, commercial mortgage loans and multi-family residential loans.

(iii) 1-4 Family Residential Loans. The Company originates 1-4 family residential mortgage loans collateralized by owner-occupied residential properties located in the Company’s market areas. The Company offers a variety of mortgage loan products which generally are amortized over five to 25 years. Loans collateralized by 1-4 family residential real estate generally have been originated in amounts of no more than 89% of appraised value or have mortgage insurance. The Company requires mortgage title insurance and hazard insurance. The Company has elected to keep all 1-4 family residential loans for its own account rather than selling such loans into the secondary market. By doing so, the Company is able to realize a higher yield on these loans; however, the Company also incurs interest rate risk as well as the risks associated with nonpayments on such loans.

(iv) Construction and Land Development Loans. The Company makes loans to finance the construction of residential and, to a lesser extent, nonresidential properties. Construction loans generally are collateralized by first liens on real estate and have floating interest rates. The Company conducts periodic inspections, either directly or through an agent, prior to approval of periodic draws on these loans. Underwriting guidelines similar to those described above are also used in the Company’s construction lending activities. Construction loans involve additional risks attributable to the fact that loan funds are advanced upon the security of a project under construction, and the project is of uncertain value prior to its completion. Because of uncertainties inherent in estimating construction costs, the market value of the completed project and the effects of governmental regulation on real property, it can be difficult to accurately evaluate the total funds required to complete a project and the related loan to value ratio. As a result of these uncertainties, construction lending often involves the disbursement of substantial funds with repayment dependent, in part, on the success of the ultimate project rather than the ability of a borrower or guarantor to repay the loan. If the Company is forced to foreclose on a project prior to completion, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to recover all of the unpaid portion of the loan. In addition, the Company may be required to fund additional amounts to complete a project and may have to hold the property for an indeterminate period of time. While the Company has underwriting procedures designed to identify what it believes to be acceptable levels of risks in construction lending, no assurance can be given that these procedures will prevent losses from the risks described above.

(v) Agriculture Loans. The Company provides agriculture loans for short-term crop production, including rice, cotton, milo and corn, farm equipment financing and agriculture real estate financing. The Company evaluates agriculture borrowers primarily based on their historical profitability, level of experience in their particular agriculture industry, overall financial capacity and the availability of secondary collateral to withstand economic and natural variations common to the industry. Because agriculture loans present a higher level of risk associated with events caused by nature, the Company routinely makes on-site visits and inspections in order to identify and monitor such risks.

(vi) Consumer Loans. Consumer loans made by the Company include direct credit automobile loans, recreational vehicle loans, boat loans, home improvement loans, home equity loans, personal loans (collateralized and uncollateralized) and deposit account collateralized loans. The terms of these loans typically range from 12 to 120 months and vary based upon the nature of collateral and size of loan. Generally, consumer loans entail greater risk than do real estate secured loans, particularly in the case of consumer loans that are unsecured or collateralized by rapidly depreciating assets such as automobiles. In such cases, any repossessed collateral for a defaulted consumer loan may not provide an adequate source of repayment for the outstanding loan balance. The remaining deficiency often does not warrant further substantial collection efforts against the borrower beyond obtaining a deficiency judgment. In addition, consumer loan collections are dependent on the borrower’s continuing financial stability, and thus are more likely to be adversely affected by job loss, divorce, illness or personal bankruptcy. Furthermore, the application of various federal and state laws may limit the amount which can be recovered on such loans.

The Company maintains an independent loan review department that reviews and validates the credit risk program on a periodic basis. Results of these reviews are presented to management. The loan review process complements and reinforces the risk identification and assessment decisions made by lenders and credit personnel, as well as the Company’s policies and procedures.

Concentrations of Credit. Most of the Company’s lending activity occurs within the State of Texas, including the four largest metropolitan areas of Austin, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston and San Antonio. The majority of the Company’s loan portfolio consists of commercial real estate loans and commercial and industrial loans. As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, there were no concentrations of loans related to any single industry in excess of 10% of total loans.

Foreign Loans. The Company has U.S. dollar denominated loans and commitments to borrowers in Mexico. The outstanding balance of these loans and the unfunded amounts available under these commitments were not significant at June 30, 2011 or December 31, 2010.

Related Party Loans. As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, loans outstanding to directors, officers and their affiliates totaled $9.6 million and $12.8 million, respectively. All transactions entered into between the Company and such related parties are done in the ordinary course of business, made on the same terms and conditions as similar transactions with unaffiliated persons.

An analysis of activity with respect to these related-party loans is as follows:

 

     June 30,
2011
    December 31,
2010
 
     (Dollars in thousands)

   $ 9,617      $ 12,783   
  

 

 

   

 

 

 

Nonaccrual and Past Due Loans. The Company has several procedures in place to assist it in maintaining the overall quality of its loan portfolio. The Company has established underwriting guidelines to be followed by its officers and the Company also monitors its delinquency levels for any negative or adverse trends. There can be no assurance, however, that the Company’s loan portfolio will not become subject to increasing pressures from deteriorating borrower credit due to general economic conditions.

The Company generally places a loan on nonaccrual status and ceases accruing interest when the payment of principal or interest is delinquent for 90 days, or earlier in some cases, unless the loan is in the process of collection and the underlying collateral fully supports the carrying value of the loan.

The Company’s conservative lending approach has resulted in strong asset quality. The Company had $12.7 million in nonperforming assets at June 30, 2011 compared with $15.8 million at December 31, 2010. If interest on nonaccrual loans had been accrued under the original loan terms, approximately $97,000 would have been recorded as income for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Impaired Loans. Loans are considered impaired when, based on current information and events, it is probable the Company will be unable to collect all amounts due in accordance with the original contractual terms of the loan agreement, including scheduled principal and interest payments. Impairment is evaluated in total for smaller-balance loans of a similar nature and on an individual loan basis for other loans. If a loan is impaired, a specific valuation allowance is allocated, if necessary, so that the loan is reported net, at the present value of estimated future cash flows using the loan’s existing rate or at the fair value of collateral if repayment is expected solely from the collateral. Interest payments on impaired loans are typically applied to principal unless collectability of the principal amount is reasonably assured, in which case interest is recognized on a cash basis. Impaired loans, or portions thereof, are charged off when deemed uncollectible.

Credit Quality Indicators. As part of the ongoing monitoring of the credit quality of the corporations loan portfolio and methodology for calculating the allowance for credit losses, management assigns and tracks loan grades to be used as credit quality indicators. The following is a general description of the loan grades used (1-7):

Grade 1 – Credits in this category are of the highest standards of credit quality with virtually no risk of loss. These borrowers would represent top rated companies and individuals with unquestionable financial standing with excellent global cash flow coverage, net worth, liquidity and collateral coverage and/or secured by CD/savings accounts.

Grade 2 – Credits in this category are not immune for risk but are well-protected by the collateral and paying capacity of the borrower. These loans may exhibit a minor unfavorable credit factor, but the overall credit is sufficiently strong to minimize the possibility of loss.

Grade 3 – Credits graded 3 constitute an undue and unwarranted credit risk, however the factors do not rise to a level of substandard. These credits have potential weaknesses and/or declining trends that, if not corrected, could expose the bank to risk at a future date. Credits graded 3 are monitored on the banks internally generated watch list and evaluated on a quarterly basis.

Grade 4 – Credits in this category are deemed “substandard” loans in accordance with regulatory guidelines. Loans in this category have well-defined weakness that, if not corrected, could make default of principal and interest possible, but it is not yet certain. Loans in this category are still accruing interest and may be dependent upon secondary sources of repayment and/or collateral liquidation.

Grade 5 – Credits in this category are deemed “substandard” and “impaired” pursuant to regulatory guidelines. As such, the Bank has determined that it is probable that less than 100% of the principal and interest will be collected. Loans graded 5 are individually evaluated for a specific reserve valuation and will typically have the accrual of interest stopped.

Grade 6 – Credits in this category include “doubtful” loans in accordance with regulatory guidance. Such loans are on nonaccrual and factors have indicated a loss is imminent. These loans are also deemed “impaired.” While a specific reserve may be in place while the loan and collateral is being evaluated these loans are typically charged down to an amount the bank deems can be collected.

Grade 7 – Credits in this category are deemed a “loss” in accordance with regulatory guidelines and charged off or charged down. The bank may continue collection efforts and may have partial recovery in the future.

Allowance for Credit Losses. The allowance for credit losses is a valuation established through charges to earnings in the form of a provision for credit losses. Management has established an allowance for credit losses which it believes is adequate for estimated losses in the Company’s loan portfolio. The amount of the allowance for credit losses is affected by the following: (i) charge-offs of loans that occur when loans are deemed uncollectible and decrease the allowance, (ii) recoveries on loans previously charged off that increase the allowance and (iii) provisions for credit losses charged to earnings that increase the allowance. Based on an evaluation of the loan portfolio and consideration of the factors listed below, management presents a quarterly review of the allowance for credit losses to the Bank’s Board of Directors, indicating any change in the allowance since the last review and any recommendations as to adjustments in the allowance.

The Company’s allowance for credit losses consists of two components: a specific valuation allowance based on probable losses on specifically identified loans and a general valuation allowance based on historical loan loss experience, general economic conditions and other qualitative risk factors both internal and external to the Company.

In setting the specific valuation allowance, the Company follows a loan review program to evaluate the credit risk in the loan portfolio. Through this loan review process, the Company maintains an internal list of impaired loans which, along with the delinquency list of loans, helps management assess the overall quality of the loan portfolio and the adequacy of the allowance for credit losses. All loans that have been identified as impaired are reviewed on a quarterly basis in order to determine whether a specific reserve is required. For each impaired loan, the Company allocates a specific loan loss reserve primarily based on the value of the collateral securing the impaired loan in accordance with ASC Topic 310, Receivables. The specific reserves are determined on an individual loan basis. Loans for which specific reserves are provided are excluded from the general valuation allowance described below.

In determining the amount of the general valuation allowance, management considers factors such as historical loan loss experience, industry diversification of the Company’s commercial loan portfolio, concentration risk of specific loan types, the volume, growth and composition of the Company’s loan portfolio, current economic conditions that may affect the borrower’s ability to pay and the value of collateral, the evaluation of the Company’s loan portfolio through its internal loan review process, general economic conditions and other qualitative risk factors both internal and external to the Company and other relevant factors in accordance with ASC Topic 450. Based on a review of these factors for each loan type, the Company applies an estimated percentage to the outstanding balance of each loan type, excluding any loan that has a specific reserve allocated to it. The Company uses this information to establish the amount of the general valuation allowance.

In connection with its review of the loan portfolio, the Company considers risk elements attributable to particular loan types or categories in assessing the quality of individual loans. Some of the risk elements include:

 

   

for 1-4 family residential mortgage loans, the borrower’s ability to repay the loan, including a consideration of the debt to income ratio and employment and income stability, the loan to value ratio, and the age, condition and marketability of collateral;

 

   

for commercial mortgage loans and multifamily residential loans, the debt service coverage ratio (income from the property in excess of operating expenses compared to loan payment requirements), operating results of the owner in the case of owner-occupied properties, the loan to value ratio, the age and condition of the collateral and the volatility of income, property value and future operating results typical of properties of that type;

 

   

for construction and land development loans, the perceived feasibility of the project including the ability to sell developed lots or improvements constructed for resale or the ability to lease property constructed for lease, the quality and nature of contracts for presale or prelease, if any, experience and ability of the developer and loan to value ratio;

 

   

for commercial and industrial loans, the operating results of the commercial, industrial or professional enterprise, the borrower’s business, professional and financial ability and expertise, the specific risks and volatility of income and operating results typical for businesses in that category and the value, nature and marketability of collateral;

 

   

for agricultural real estate loans, the experience and financial capability of the borrower, projected debt service coverage of the operations of the borrower and loan to value ratio; and

 

   

for non-real estate agricultural loans, the operating results, experience and financial capability of the borrower, historical and expected market conditions and the value, nature and marketability of collateral.

In addition, for each category, the Company considers secondary sources of income and the financial strength and credit history of the borrower and any guarantors.

At June 30, 2011, the allowance for credit losses totaled $51.9 million or 1.42% of total loans. At December 31, 2010, the allowance aggregated $51.6 million or 1.48% of total loans.

5. FAIR VALUE

Effective January 1, 2008, the Company adopted FASB ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement and Disclosures. ASC Topic 820, which defines fair value, addresses aspects of the expanding application of fair value accounting and establishes a consistent framework for measuring fair value. Fair value represents the estimated price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability, otherwise known as an “exit price”.

Fair Value Hierarchy

ASC Topic 820 specifies a hierarchy of valuation techniques based on whether the inputs to those valuation techniques are observable or unobservable. In accordance with ASC Topic 820, these inputs are summarized in the three broad levels listed below:

 

   

Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Level 1 assets include U.S. Treasury securities that are highly liquid and are actively traded in over-the-counter markets.

 

   

Level 2—Other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities) or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities. The Company’s Level 2 assets include U.S. government and agency mortgage-backed debt securities, corporate securities, municipal bonds and CRA funds.

 

   

Level 3—Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities. Level 3 assets and liabilities include financial instruments whose value is determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, or similar techniques, as well as instruments for which the determination of fair values requires significant management judgment or estimation.

In determining the appropriate levels, the Company performs a detailed analysis of the assets and liabilities that are subject to ASC Topic 820.

The following table summarizes financial assets and financial liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2011, segregated by the level of the valuation inputs within the fair value hierarchy utilized to measure fair value. There were no movements between levels for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Certain assets and liabilities are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis; that is, the instruments are not measured at fair value on an ongoing basis but are subject to fair value adjustments in certain circumstances (for example, when there is evidence of impairment). These instruments include other real estate owned, repossessed assets and impaired loans per ASC Topic 310, Receivables. For the six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company had additions to impaired loans of $2.0 million and additions to other real estate owned of $7.9 million, of which $1.6 million and $2.5 million were outstanding June 30, 2011, respectively. During the reported periods, all fair value measurements for other real estate owned and impaired loans utilized Level 2 inputs with impaired loans reported at the fair value of the underlying collateral when repayment is expected solely from the collateral. The remaining financial assets and financial liabilities measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis that were recorded in 2011 and remained outstanding at June 30, 2011 were not significant.

The fair value of an asset or liability is the price that would be received to sell that asset or paid to transfer that liability in an orderly transaction occurring in the principal market (or most advantageous market in the absence of a principal market) for such asset or liability. In estimating fair value, the Company utilizes valuation techniques that are consistent with the market approach, the income approach and/or the cost approach. Such valuation techniques are consistently applied. Inputs to valuation techniques include the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. FASB ASC Topic 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy for valuation inputs that gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs.

These fair value disclosures represent the Company’s estimates based on relevant market information and information about the financial instruments. Fair value estimates are based on judgments regarding future expected loss experience, current economic conditions, risk characteristics of the various instruments and other factors. These estimates are subjective in nature and involve uncertainties and matters of significant judgment and therefore cannot be determined with precision. Changes in the above methodologies and assumptions could significantly affect the estimates.

The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate that value:

Cash and Cash Equivalents—For these short-term instruments, the carrying amount is a reasonable estimate of fair value.

Federal Funds Sold—The carrying amount is a reasonable estimate of fair value.

Securities —For securities held as investments, fair value equals quoted market price, if available. If a quoted market price is not available, fair value is estimated using quoted market prices for similar securities.

Loans Held for Investment—For fixed rate loans and certain homogeneous categories of loans (such as some residential mortgages and other consumer loans), fair value is estimated by discounting the future cash flows using the risk-free Treasury rate for the applicable maturity, adjusted for servicing and credit risk. The carrying value of variable rate loans approximates fair value because the loans reprice frequently to current market rates.

Deposits —The fair value of demand deposits, savings accounts and certain money market deposits is the amount payable on demand at the reporting date. The fair value of fixed-maturity certificates of deposit is estimated using the rates currently offered for deposits of similar remaining maturities.

Junior Subordinated Debentures—The fair value of the junior subordinated debentures was calculated using the quoted market prices, if available. If quoted market prices are not available, fair value is estimated using quoted market prices for similar subordinated debentures.

Other Borrowings—Rates currently available to the Company for debt with similar terms and remaining maturities are used to estimate the fair value of existing debt using a discounted cash flows methodology.

Securities Sold Under Repurchase Agreements—The fair value of securities sold under repurchase agreements is the amount payable on demand at the reporting date.

Off-Balance Sheet Financial Instruments—The fair value of commitments to extend credit and standby letters of credit is estimated using the fees currently charged to enter into similar agreements, taking into account the remaining terms of the agreement and the present creditworthiness of the counterparties.

The fair value estimates presented herein are based on pertinent information available to management at June 30, 2011. Although management is not aware of any factors that would significantly affect the estimated fair value amounts, such amounts have not been comprehensively revalued for purposes of these financial statements since those dates and, therefore, current estimates of fair value may differ significantly from the amounts presented herein.

Purchase accounting adjustments to prior year acquisitions were made to adjust deferred tax asset and liability balances. Goodwill is recorded on the acquisition date of each entity. The Company may record subsequent adjustments to goodwill for amounts undeterminable at acquisition date, such as deferred taxes and real estate valuations, and therefore the goodwill amounts reflected in the table above may change accordingly. The Company initially records the total premium paid on acquisitions as goodwill. After finalizing the valuation, core deposit intangibles are identified and reclassified from goodwill to core deposit intangibles on the balance sheet. This reclassification has no effect on total assets or liabilities. Management performs an evaluation annually, and more frequently if a triggering event occurs, of whether any impairment of the goodwill and other intangibles has occurred. If any such impairment is determined, a write down is recorded. As of June 30, 2011, there were no impairments recorded on goodwill or other intangibles.

Core deposit intangibles are amortized on an accelerated basis over their estimated lives, which the Company believes is between 8 and 10 years. Gross core deposit intangibles outstanding were $79.2 million at June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively. Net core deposit intangibles outstanding were $24.8 million and $28.8 million at the same dates, respectively. Amortization expense related to intangible assets totaled $1.9 million and $2.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and $4.0 million and $4.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. The estimated aggregate future amortization expense for intangible assets remaining as of June 30, 2011 is as follows (dollars in thousands):

7. STOCK BASED COMPENSATION

At June 30, 2011, the Company had three stock-based employee compensation plans and one stock option plan assumed in connection with acquisitions under which no additional options will be granted. Two of the three plans adopted by the Company have expired and therefore no additional awards may be issued under those plans. The Company accounts for stock-based employee compensation plans using the fair value-based method of accounting in accordance with ASC Topic 718. ASC Topic 718 was effective for companies in 2006; however, the Company has been recognizing compensation expense since January 1, 2003. The Company recognized $1.6 million and $1.5 million in stock-based compensation expense for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and $936,000 and $692,000 in stock-based compensation expense for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. There was approximately $548,000 and $469,000 of income tax benefit recorded for the stock-based compensation expense for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and $314,000 and $217,000 of income tax benefit recorded for the stock-based compensation expense for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

The Company has granted shares of common stock (“restricted stock”) to certain directors and associates under the Company’s 2004 Stock Incentive Plan. The awardee is not entitled to the shares until they vest, which is generally over a 1 to 5 year period, but the awardee is entitled to receive dividends on and vote the shares prior to vesting. The shares granted do not have a cost to the awardee and the only requirement of vesting is continued service to the Company. Compensation cost related to restricted stock is calculated based on the market price of the shares at the date of grant. If the awardee leaves the Company before the shares vest, the unvested shares are forfeited. As of June 30, 2011, there were 385,650 shares of restricted stock outstanding with a weighted average grant date fair value of $37.30.

Stock options are issued at the current market price on the date of the grant, subject to a pre-determined vesting period with a contractual term of 10 years. Options assumed in connection with acquisitions have contractual terms as established in the original option grant agreements entered into prior to acquisition. The fair value of stock options granted is estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. Stock-based compensation expense is recognized ratably over the requisite service period for all awards.

The fair value of options was estimated using an option-pricing model with the following weighted average assumptions:

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations analyzes the major elements of the Company’s interim consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. This section should be read in conjunction with the Company’s interim consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included elsewhere in this report and with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes and other detailed information appearing in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010.

OVERVIEW

The Company, a Texas corporation, was formed in 1983 as a vehicle to acquire the former Allied First Bank in Edna, Texas which was chartered in 1949 as The First National Bank of Edna and is now known as Prosperity Bank. The Company is a registered financial holding company that derives substantially all of its revenues and income from the operation of its bank subsidiary, Prosperity Bank® (“Prosperity Bank®” or the “Bank”). The Bank provides a wide array of financial products and services to small and medium-sized businesses and consumers. As of June 30, 2010, the Bank operated one hundred seventy-five (175) full-service banking locations; with sixty (60) in the Houston area, twenty (20) in the South Texas area including Corpus Christi and Victoria, thirty-three (33) in the Central Texas, ten (10) in the Bryan/College Station area, twenty-one (21) in East Texas and thirty-one (31) in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area. The Company’s headquarters are located at Prosperity Bank Plaza, 4295 San Felipe in Houston, Texas and its telephone number is (281) 269-7199. The Company’s website address is www.prosperitybanktx.com. Information contained on the Company’s website is not incorporated by reference into this quarterly report on Form 10-Q and is not part of this or any other report.

The Company generates the majority of its revenues from interest income on loans, service charges on customer accounts and income from investment in securities. The revenues are partially offset by interest expense paid on deposits and other borrowings and noninterest expenses such as administrative and occupancy expenses. Net interest income is the difference between interest income on earning assets such as loans and securities and interest expense on liabilities such as deposits and borrowings which are used to fund those assets. The level of interest rates and the volume and mix of earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities impact net interest income and margin.

Three principal components of the Company’s growth strategy are internal growth, stringent cost control practices and strategic merger transactions. The Company focuses on continuous internal growth. Each banking center is operated as a separate profit center, maintaining separate data with respect to its net interest income, efficiency ratio, deposit growth, loan growth and overall profitability. Banking center presidents and managers are accountable for performance in these areas and compensated accordingly. The Company also focuses on maintaining stringent cost control practices and policies. The Company has invested significantly in the infrastructure required to centralize many of its critical operations, such as data processing and loan processing. Management believes that this centralized infrastructure can accommodate substantial additional growth while enabling the Company to minimize operational costs through certain economies of scale. The Company also intends to continue to seek expansion opportunities. On March 26, 2010, the Company purchased three (3) retail branches of U.S. Bank. The three banking centers acquired by the Company were the Texas locations U.S. Bank acquired from the FDIC on October 30, 2009 when U.S. Bank acquired the nine (9) subsidiary banks of FBOP Corporation. On April 30, 2010, the Company purchased nineteen (19) Texas retail branches of First Bank, and subsequently consolidated four of these branches into nearby existing Company banking centers.

Total assets were $9.66 billion at June 30, 2011 compared with $9.48 billion at December 31, 2010, an increase of $180.6 million or 1.9%. Total loans were $3.67 billion at June 30, 2011 compared with $3.49 billion at December 31, 2010, an increase of $180.2 million or 5.2%. Total deposits were $7.67 billion at June 30, 2011 compared with $7.45 billion December 31, 2010, an increase of $212.8 million or 2.9%. Total shareholders’ equity was $1.51 billion at June 30, 2011 compared with $1.45 billion at December 31, 2010, an increase of $59.3 million or 4.1%.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The Company’s accounting policies are integral to understanding the financial results reported. Accounting policies are described in detail in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010. The Company believes that of its significant accounting policies, the following may involve a higher degree of judgment and complexity:

Allowance for Credit Losses—The allowance for credit losses is established through charges to earnings in the form of a provision for credit losses. Management has established an allowance for credit losses which it believes is adequate for estimated losses in the Company’s loan portfolio. Based on an evaluation of the loan portfolio, management presents a monthly review of the allowance for credit losses to the Bank’s Board of Directors, indicating any change in the allowance since the last review and any recommendations as to adjustments in the allowance. In making its evaluation, management considers factors such as historical loan loss experience, industry diversification of the Company’s commercial loan portfolio, the amount of nonperforming assets and related collateral, the volume, growth and composition of the Company’s loan portfolio, current economic conditions that may affect the borrower’s ability to pay and the value of collateral, the evaluation of the Company’s loan portfolio through its internal loan review process and other relevant factors. Portions of the

Table of Contents

allowance may be allocated for specific credits; however, the entire allowance is available for any credit that, in management’s judgment, should be charged off. Charge-offs occur when loans are deemed to be uncollectible. The allowance for credit losses includes allowance allocations calculated in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 310, “Receivables,” and allowance allocations determined in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 450, “Contingencies.”

Goodwill and Intangible Assets—Goodwill and intangible assets that have indefinite useful lives are subject to an impairment test at least annually, or more often, if events or circumstances indicate that it is more likely than not that the fair value of Prosperity Bank, the Company’s only reporting unit with assigned goodwill, is below the carrying value of its equity. Goodwill is tested for impairment using a two-step process that begins with an estimation of the fair value of the Company’s reporting unit compared with its carrying value. If the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the reporting unit, a second test is completed comparing the implied fair value of the reporting unit’s goodwill to its carrying value to measure the amount of impairment. The Company estimated the fair value of its reporting unit through several valuation techniques that consider, among other things, the historical and current financial position and results of operations of the Company, general economic and market conditions and exit prices for recent market transactions. The Company had no intangible assets with indefinite useful lives at June 30, 2011. Other identifiable intangible assets that are subject to amortization are amortized on an accelerated basis over the years expected to be benefited, which the Company believes is between eight and ten years. These amortizable intangible assets are reviewed for impairment if circumstances indicate their value may not be recoverable based on a comparison of fair value to carrying value. Based on the Company’s annual goodwill impairment test as of September 30, 2010, management does not believe any of its goodwill is impaired as of June 30, 2011 because the fair value of the Company’s equity exceeded its carrying value. While the Company believes no impairment existed at June 30, 2011 under accounting standards applicable at that date, different conditions or assumptions, or changes in cash flows or profitability, if significantly negative or unfavorable, could have a material adverse effect on the outcome of the Company’s impairment evaluation and financial condition or future results of operations.

Stock-Based Compensation—The Company accounts for stock-based employee compensation plans using the fair value-based method of accounting in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, Stock Compensation. ASC 718 was effective for companies in 2006; however, the Company had been recognizing compensation expense since January 1, 2003. The Company’s results of operations reflect compensation expense for all employee stock-based compensation, including the unvested portion of stock options granted prior to 2003. ASC 718 requires that management make assumptions including stock price volatility and employee turnover that are utilized to measure compensation expense. The fair value of stock options granted is estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. This model requires the input of subjective assumptions.

Other-Than-Temporarily Impaired Securities—The Company’s available for sale securities portfolio is reported at fair value. When the fair value of a security is below its amortized cost, and depending on the length of time the condition exists and the extent the fair market value is below amortized cost, additional analysis is performed to determine whether an impairment exists. Available for sale and held to maturity securities are analyzed quarterly for possible other-than-temporary impairment. The analysis considers (i) the length of time and the extent to which the fair value has been less than cost, (ii) the financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer, (iii) whether the market decline was affected by macroeconomic conditions, and (iv) whether the entity has the intent to sell the debt security or more likely than not will be required to sell the debt security before its anticipated recovery. Often, the information available to conduct these assessments is limited and rapidly changing, making estimates of fair value subject to judgment. If actual information or conditions are different than estimated, the extent of the impairment of the security may be different than previously estimated, which could have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations and financial condition.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Net income available to common shareholders was $35.1 million ($0.75 per common share on a diluted basis) for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 compared with $31.7 million ($0.68 per common share on a diluted basis) for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, an increase in net income of $3.3 million or 10.5%. The Company posted returns on average common equity of 9.36% and 9.12%, returns on average assets of 1.45% and 1.34% and efficiency ratios of 43.58% and 46.04% for the quarters ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. The efficiency ratio is calculated by dividing total noninterest expense (excluding credit loss provisions) by net interest income plus noninterest income (excluding net gains and losses on the sale of securities and assets). Additionally, taxes are not part of this calculation.

For the six months ended June 30, 2011, net income available to common shareholders was $69.0 million ($1.47 per common share on a diluted basis) compared with $62.7 million ($1.34 per common share on a diluted basis) for the same period in 2010, an increase in net income of $6.2 million or 9.9%. The Company posted returns on average common equity of 9.29% and 9.09%, returns on average assets of 1.43% and 1.37% and efficiency ratios of 43.94% and 44.93% for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

Net Interest Income

The Company’s net interest income is affected by changes in the amount and mix of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, referred to as a “volume change.” It is also affected by changes in yields earned on interest-earning assets and rates paid on interest-bearing deposits and other borrowed funds, referred to as a “rate change.”

Net interest income before the provision for credit losses was $83.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 compared with $80.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, an increase of $3.0 million, or 3.8%. Net interest income increased as a result of an increase in average interest-earning assets to $8.35 billion for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 compared with $8.16 billion for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, an increase of $196.3 million, or 2.4%. The increase is net interest income was also partially due to decreased interest expense resulting from lower deposit pricing.

The net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis increased to 4.06% for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 compared with 4.00% for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. The average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities decreased 41 basis points from 1.17% for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 to 0.76% for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. The average yield on earning assets decreased 30 basis points from 4.89% for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 to 4.59% for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. The volume of interest-bearing liabilities decreased $95.6 million and the volume of interest-earning assets increased $196.3 million for the same periods.

Net interest income before the provision for credit losses increased $5.7 million, or 3.6%, to $164.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $158.4 million for the same period in 2010. This increase was mainly attributable to higher average interest-earning assets. The net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis decreased to 4.04% compared with 4.09% for the same periods.

Provision for Credit Losses

Management actively monitors the Company’s asset quality and provides specific loss provisions when necessary. Provisions for credit losses are charged to income to bring the total allowance for credit losses to a level deemed appropriate by management of the Company based on such factors as historical credit loss experience, industry diversification of the Company’s commercial loan portfolio, the amount of nonperforming loans and related collateral, the volume growth and composition of the loan portfolio, current economic conditions that may affect the borrower’s ability to pay and the value of collateral, the evaluation of the loan portfolio through the internal loan review process and other relevant factors.

Table of Contents

Loans are charged-off against the allowance for credit losses when appropriate. Although management believes it uses the best information available to make determinations with respect to the provision for credit losses, future adjustments may be necessary if economic conditions differ from the assumptions used in making the initial determinations.

The Company made a $1.4 million provision for credit losses for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 and a $3.3 million provision for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. Net charge-offs were $1.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 compared with net charge-offs of $2.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. The Company made a $3.1 million provision for credit losses for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and a $7.7 million provision for the six months ended June 30, 2010. Net charge-offs were $2.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $6.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010.

Noninterest Income

The Company’s primary sources of recurring noninterest income are non-sufficient funds fees (NSF fees), debit and ATM card income and service charges on deposit accounts. Noninterest income does not include loan origination fees which are recognized over the life of the related loan as an adjustment to yield using the interest method. Noninterest income totaled $13.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $13.3 million for the same period in 2010, an increase of $234,000 or 1.8%. Noninterest income totaled $27.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $26.3 million for the same period in 2010, an increase of $1.1 million or 4.3%. Both increases were primarily due to the increases in debit card and ATM card income and decreases in net loss on sale of ORE, partially offset by decreases in NSF fees and increases in loss on sale of securities.

The net loss on sale of ORE was $366,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared with a net loss of $1.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. The net loss on sale of ORE was $526,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with a net loss of $2.0 million for the same period in 2010.

(1) Includes stock based compensation expense of $936,000 and $692,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and $1.6 million and $1.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

Salaries and employee benefit expenses were $24.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 compared with $22.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, an increase of $1.6 million, or 7.0%. The increase was principally due to an increase in annual employee incentive pay. For the six months ended June 30, 2011, salaries and employee benefit expenses were $47.2 million, an increase of $3.7 million or 8.4% compared with $43.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. The number of full-time equivalent (FTE) associates employed by the Company was 1,675 at June 30, 2011 and 1,753 at June 30, 2010.

Other expense decreased $555,000 or 20.6% from $2.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010 to $2.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. Other expense decreased $590,000 or 12.2% from $4.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 to $4.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. Overall general expenses were down due to continued efficiencies implemented by the Company.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense increased $2.3 million or 14.7% to $18.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 compared with $15.8 million for the same period in 2010. For the six months ended June 30, 2011, income tax expense totaled $35.2 million, an increase of $3.7 million or 11.9% compared with $31.4 million for the same period in 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to higher pretax net earnings for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with the same respective periods in 2010. The effective tax rate for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 was 34.1% and 33.3%, respectively. The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 was 33.8% and 33.4%, respectively.

Allowance for Credit Losses

Management actively monitors the Company’s asset quality and provides specific loss allowances when necessary. Loans are charged-off against the allowance for credit losses when appropriate. Although management believes it uses the best information available to make determinations with respect to the allowance for credit losses, future adjustments may be necessary if economic conditions differ from the assumptions used in making the initial determinations. As of June 30, 2011, the allowance for credit losses amounted to $51.9 million or 1.42% of total loans compared with $51.6 million or 1.48% of total loans at December 31, 2010.

Set forth below is an analysis of the allowance for credit losses for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and the year ended December 31, 2010:

Management evaluates securities for other-than-temporary impairment (“OTTI”) at least on a quarterly basis, and more frequently when economic or market conditions warrant such an evaluation. The investment securities portfolio is evaluated for OTTI by segregating the portfolio into two general segments and applying the appropriate OTTI model. Investment securities classified as available for sale or held to maturity are generally evaluated for OTTI under FASB ASC Topic 320, Investments—Debt and Equity Securities. Certain purchased beneficial interests, including non-agency mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed securities, and collateralized debt obligations, that had credit ratings at the time of purchase of below AA are evaluated using the model outlined in ASC Topic 325, Investments-Other. The Company currently does not own any securities that are accounted for under ASC Topic 325.

In determining OTTI under ASC Topic 320, management considers many factors, including: (i) the length of time and the extent to which the fair value has been less than cost, (ii) the financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer, (iii) whether the market decline was affected by macroeconomic conditions, and (iv) whether the entity has the intent to sell the debt security or more likely than not will be required to sell the debt security before its anticipated recovery. The assessment of whether an OTTI decline exists involves a high degree of subjectivity and judgment and is based on the information available to management at a point in time. If applicable, the second segment of the portfolio uses the OTTI guidance provided by ASC Topic 325 that is specific to purchased beneficial interests that, on the purchase date, were rated below AA. Under the ASC Topic 325 model, the Company compares the present value of the remaining cash flows as estimated at the preceding evaluation date to the current expected remaining cash flows. An OTTI is deemed to have occurred if there has been an adverse change in the remaining expected future cash flows.

When OTTI occurs under either model, the amount of the OTTI recognized in earnings depends on whether an entity intends to sell the security or more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis less any current period credit loss. If an entity intends to sell or more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis less any current period credit loss, the OTTI shall be recognized in earnings equal to the entire difference between the investment’s amortized cost basis and its fair value at the balance sheet date. If an entity does not intend to sell the security and it is not more likely than not that the entity will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis less any current period loss, the OTTI shall be separated into the amount representing the credit loss and the amount related to all other factors. The amount of the total OTTI related to the credit loss is determined based on the present value of cash flows expected to be collected and is recognized in earnings. The amount of the total OTTI related to other factors shall be recognized in other comprehensive income, net of applicable taxes. The previous amortized cost basis less the OTTI recognized in earnings shall become the new amortized cost basis of the investment.

Management does not intend to sell any debt securities or more likely than not will not be required to sell any debt securities before their anticipated recovery, at which time the Company will receive full value for the securities. Furthermore, management has the intent to hold the securities classified as available for sale that were in a loss position as of June 30, 2011 for a period of time sufficient for an entire recovery of the cost basis of the securities. The unrealized losses are largely due to increases in market interest rates over the yields available at the time the underlying securities were purchased. The fair value is expected to recover as the securities approach their maturity date or repricing date or if market yields for such investments decline. Management does not believe any of the securities are impaired due to reasons of credit quality. Accordingly, as of June 30, 2011, management believes any impairment in the Company’s securities are temporary and no impairment loss has been realized in the Company’s consolidated income statement.
