YOY Personnel expense $143.5 $138.9 $147.9 3.3% (3.0)% Other operating expense $109.1 $107.5 $118.0 1.4% (7.6)% Total operating expense $252.6 $246.5 $265.9 2.5% (5.0)% Efficiency Ratio 61.41% 61.68% 65.92% • Personnel expense up in Q3 from equity compensation expense. • Non personnel expense up slightly due to an impairment of a software license coupled with an OREO writedown on a healthcare property. • $1 million of merger-related expenses in both Q3 and Q2. • Mortgage-related cost actions in Q3 – approximately $1.6 million in expense saves. 9

Forecast and Assumptions ▪ Continued loan growth as we integrate CoBiz portfolios into our lines of business. ▪ Slowing growth in net interest margin with continued Fed rate increases. ▪ Revenue from fee-generating businesses down due to continued mortgage headwinds. ▪ Controlled expense growth excluding CoBiz integration costs. ▪ Provision levels moving forward will be influenced by loan growth. Loan loss reserve levels could drop below 1 percent after CoBiz consolidation. ▪ Blended federal and state effective tax rate 22-23% going forward. ▪ CoBiz integration and closing charges expected to be $45 million going forward with approximately 75 percent in the fourth quarter of 2018 and 25 percent in the first quarter of 2019. ▪ We are still comfortable with the 6 percent accretion in 2019 as previously quoted with an expected conversion late in the first quarter of 2019. ▪ Hold on specific 2019 guidance until the budget process is completed. 10
