Exhibit 99
Review Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm



The Board of Directors
First Midwest Bancorp, Inc.

We have reviewed the consolidated statement of financial condition of First Midwest Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) as of March 31, 2015, and the related condensed consolidated statements of income, consolidated statements of comprehensive income and changes in stockholders’ equity, and condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2015 and 2014. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management.

We conducted our review in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). A review of interim financial information consists principally of applying analytical procedures and making inquiries of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters. It is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements taken as a whole. Accordingly, we do not express such an opinion.

Based on our review, we are not aware of any material modifications that should be made to the consolidated financial statements referred to above for them to be in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

We have previously audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated statement of financial condition of the Company as of December 31, 2014, and the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, changes in stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the year then ended (not presented herein) and we expressed an unqualified opinion on those consolidated financial statements in our report dated March 2, 2015.
