Item 2.02 - Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On January 28, 2019, Park National Corporation (“Park”) issued a news release (the “Financial Results News Release”) announcing financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2018. A copy of the Financial Results News Release is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.

Park's management uses certain non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures to evaluate Park's performance. Specifically, management reviews return on average tangible equity, return on average tangible assets, tangible equity to tangible assets and tangible book value per share. Management has included in the Financial Results News Release information relating to the annualized return on average tangible equity, annualized return on average tangible assets, tangible equity to tangible assets and tangible book value per share for the three months ended and at December 31, 2018, September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 and the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017. For purposes of calculating the annualized return on average tangible equity, a non-GAAP financial measure, net income for each period is divided by average tangible equity during the period. Average tangible equity equals average shareholders' equity during the applicable period less average goodwill and other intangibles during the applicable period. For the purpose of calculating the annualized return on average tangible assets, a non-GAAP financial measure, net income for each period is divided by average tangible assets during the period. Average tangible assets equals average assets during the applicable period less average goodwill and other intangibles during the applicable period. For the purpose of calculating tangible equity to tangible assets, a non-GAAP financial measure, tangible equity is divided by tangible assets. Tangible equity equals total shareholders' equity less goodwill and other intangibles, in each case at period end. Tangible assets equals total assets less goodwill and other intangibles, in each case at period end. For the purpose of calculating tangible book value per share, a non-GAAP financial measure, tangible equity is divided by the number of common shares outstanding, in each case at period end. Management believes that the disclosure of return on average tangible equity, return on average tangible assets, tangible equity to tangible assets and tangible book value per share presents additional information to the reader of the consolidated financial statements, which, when read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP, assists in analyzing Park's operating performance, ensures comparability of operating performance from period to period, and facilitates comparisons with the performance of Park's peer financial holding companies and bank holding companies, while eliminating certain non-operational effects of acquisitions. In the Financial Results News Release, Park has provided a reconciliation of average tangible equity to average shareholders' equity, average tangible assets to average assets, tangible equity to total shareholders' equity and tangible assets to total assets solely for the purpose of complying with SEC Regulation G and not as an indication that return on average tangible equity, return on average tangible assets, tangible equity to tangible assets and tangible book value per share are substitutes for return on average equity, return on average assets, total shareholders' equity to total assets and book value per share, respectively, as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Item 5.02 -- Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
In the Financial Results News Release, Park addressed future changes intended to be made with respect to Park’s executive officers. The portions of the Financial Results News Release which address these intended future changes are incorporated herein by this reference.
On January 28, 2019, the Board of Directors of Park (the “Park Board”) considered changes in the executive leadership of Park intended to be made in the second quarter of 2019. The Park Board proposes to take action at the meeting of the Park Board to be held on April 22, 2019 (the “April 2019 Park Board Meeting”), immediately following the 2019 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, to implement changes to Park’s executive officers. At the April 2019 Park Board Meeting, the Park Board intends to: (i) increase the number of directors of Park from 13 to 14, with the additional director to serve in the class of directors whose terms will expire in 2020; (ii) elect Matthew R. Miller (“Mr. M.R. Miller”) to fill the vacancy in the Park Board, and in the class of directors whose terms will expire in 2020, created by such increase, with such election to be effective as of May 1, 2019; and (iii) elect Mr. M.R. Miller as President of Park, with such election to also be effective as of May 1, 2019. In addition, the Board of Directors (the “PNB Board”) of The Park National Bank, Park’s national bank subsidiary (“PNB”), intends to elect Mr. M.R. Miller as President of PNB as well as a director of PNB at the meeting of the PNB Board to be held on April 22, 2019 (the “PNB Board April 2019 Meeting”), with such elections to also be effective as of May 1, 2019.
Mr. M.R. Miller, who is 40, has served as Executive Vice President of each of Park and PNB since April 2017. Prior thereto, Mr. M.R. Miller served as Chief Accounting Officer and principal accounting officer of Park and Chief Accounting Officer of PNB from December 2012 to March 2017; as a Vice President of PNB from April 2009 to March 2017; and as Vice President of Accounting of PNB from April 2009 to December 2012. Mr. M.R. Miller does not have any family relationship with any member of the Park Board or any of Park’s executive officers.
Mr. M.R. Miller and members of his immediate family are customers of and have had banking relationships with PNB in the ordinary course of business and in compliance with applicable federal and state laws and regulations. It is expected that similar banking relationships will occur in the future. Mr. M.R. Miller’s brother, Mark H. Miller (“Mr. M.H. Miller”), is a salaried employee of PNB serving in a non-executive officer position. Mr. M.H. Miller’s compensation is established by PNB in accordance with PNB’s compensation practices applicable to employees with comparable qualifications and responsibilities and holding similar positions and without the involvement of Mr. M.R. Miller.
At the April 2019 Park Board Meeting, the Park Board intends to elect David L. Trautman (“Mr. Trautman”) as Chairman of the Board of Park, effective as of May 1, 2019. In addition, the PNB Board intends to elect Mr. Trautman as Chairman of the Board of PNB at the PNB Board April 2019 Meeting. Mr. Trautman would continue to serve as Chief Executive Officer and a director of each of Park and PNB.
Mr. Trautman, who is 57, has served as Chief Executive Officer of each of Park and PNB since January 2014 and as President of each of Park and PNB since January 2005. Mr. Trautman also served as Secretary of Park from July 2002 to December 2013. Prior to his current positions, Mr. Trautman served in executive positions with PNB and the First-Knox National Bank Division of PNB for over ten years. Mr. Trautman does not have any family relationship with any member of the Park Board or any of Park’s executive officers. Mr. Trautman and members of his immediate family are customers of and have had banking relationships with PNB in the ordinary course of business and in compliance with applicable federal and state laws and regulations. It is expected that similar banking relationships will occur in the future.
As a result of the actions intended to be taken by the Park Board and the PNB Board at their respective meetings in April 2019, C. Daniel DeLawder (“Mr. DeLawder”) would cease to serve as Chairman of the Board of each of Park and PNB, effective May 1, 2019. Mr. DeLawder would continue to serve as a director of each of Park and PNB and as Chairman of the Executive Committee of each of the Park Board and the PNB Board. Mr. DeLawder would also continue employment with PNB in a reduced capacity.

The category “Parent Company” above excludes the results for SEPH, an entity which is winding down commensurate with the disposition of SEPH's nonperforming assets. Management considers the “Ongoing operations” results, which exclude the results of SEPH, to reflect the business of Park and Park's subsidiaries going forward. The discussion below provides additional information regarding the segments that make up the “Ongoing operations”, followed by additional information regarding SEPH.

During the first quarter of 2018, Park adopted ASU 2017-07, Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Cost.  This ASU requires that an employer report the service cost component in the same line item as other compensation costs arising from services rendered by the pertinent employees during the period.  The other components of net benefit cost are required to be presented in the income statement separately from the service cost.  This ASU is required to be applied retrospectively to all periods presented.  As a result of the adoption of this ASU, all prior periods have been recast to separately record the service cost component and other components of net benefit cost.  For Park, this resulted in an increase in other income and an offsetting increase in other expense with no change to net income.

During the first quarter of 2018, Park adopted ASU 2016-01, Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. Changes reflected in the current U.S. GAAP model primarily affect the accounting for equity investments, financial liabilities under the fair value option, and the presentation and disclosure requirements for financial instruments. As a result of the adoption of this ASU, Park recorded an increase of $1.9 million to beginning retained earnings and a $995,000 increase to beginning accumulated other comprehensive loss.

On July 1, 2018, NewDominion Bank, a North Carolina state-chartered bank (“NewDominion”), merged with and into PNB, with PNB continuing as the surviving entity pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization, dated as of January 22, 2018, by and among Park, PNB, and NewDominion.  On the acquisition date, NewDominion had $328 million in total assets, $278 million in total loans, and $284 million in total deposits. The acquisition was valued at $79.2 million and resulted in Park issuing 435,457 Park common shares and paying $30.7 million in cash as merger consideration in exchange for the NewDominion common stock. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, Park recorded merger-related expenses of $4.6 million associated with the NewDominion acquisition.

Net interest income of $258.5 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 represented a $23.3 million, or 9.9%, increase compared to $235.2 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. The increase was the result of a $24.8 million increase in interest income, partially offset by a $1.5 million increase in interest expense.
The $24.8 million increase in interest income was due to a $22.7 million increase in interest income on loans, along with a $2.1 million increase in interest income on investments. The increase in interest income on loans was partially the result of a $148.4 million increase in average loans from $5.29 billion for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, to $5.44 billion for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. Additionally, the yield on loans increased by 28 basis points to 4.85% for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, compared to 4.57% for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. Included in interest income for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 was $817,000 and $233,000, respectively, in interest income, related to PNB participations in legacy Vision Bank ("Vision") assets. Interest income was also impacted by the acquisition of NewDominion on July 1, 2018. NewDominion contributed $8.1 million to interest income at PNB during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.
The $1.5 million increase in interest expense was due to a $13.1 million increase in interest expense on deposits, partially offset by an $11.6 million decrease in interest expense on borrowings. The increase in interest expense on deposits was partially the result of a $125.9 million, or 2.9%, increase in average interest-bearing deposits from $4.34 billion for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, to $4.47 billion for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. Additionally, the cost of deposits increased by 28 basis points from 0.44% for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 to 0.72% for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. The decrease in interest expense on borrowings was the result of a decrease in long-term debt. During the fourth quarter of 2017, Park utilized excess cash to repay $350 million of long-term debt which matured during November 2017. The effective interest rate on the repaid long-term debt had been 3.22%. Interest expense was also impacted by the acquisition of NewDominion on July 1, 2018. NewDominion contributed $674,000 to interest expense at PNB during 2018.
The provision for loan losses of $7.6 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 represented a decrease of $2.3 million, compared to $9.9 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. Refer to the “Credit Metrics and Provision for (Recovery of) Loan Losses” section for additional details regarding the level of the provision for (recovery of) loan losses recognized in each period presented above.
Other income of $89.0 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 represented an increase of $6.2 million, or 7.5%, compared to $82.7 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. The $6.2 million increase was primarily related to a $2.6 million increase in fiduciary income, a $1.5 million increase in check card fee income, a $1.2 million increase in net gains on sale of OREO, a $993,000 increase in other components of net periodic benefit income, a $833,000 increase in other income on repossessed assets, a $714,000 increase in gains on sale of repossessed assets, net, a $661,000 increase in gain on sale of certain non-performing commercial loans, a $591,000 increase in equity investment income which is included in miscellaneous income, a $462,000 increase in bank owned life insurance income, primarily from the change in death benefits paid on policies during 2018 and 2017, and a $367,000 increase in gains on sale of assets, net, offset by a $2.3 million net loss on sales of securities during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, and a $1.2 million decrease in service charges on deposit accounts. Other income was impacted by the acquisition of NewDominion on July 1, 2018. NewDominion contributed $429,000 to other income at PNB during 2018.
Other expense of $206.8 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 represented an increase of $20.9 million, or 11.3%, compared to $185.9 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. The $20.9 million increase was primarily related to a $7.0 million increase in salaries expense, a $5.2 million increase in employee benefits expense, a $1.7 million increase in professional fees and services expense, a $1.1 million increase in data processing expense, a $1.0 million increase in

occupancy expense, a $937,000 increase in non-loan related losses which are included in miscellaneous expense, a $799,000 increase in furniture and equipment expense, a $762,000 increase in state tax expense, a $732,000 increase in marketing expense, a $578,000 increase in core deposit intangible amortization expense, and a $497,000 increase in contribution expense which is included in miscellaneous expense, offset by a $1.0 million decrease in other insurance. Other expense was also impacted by the acquisition of NewDominion on July 1, 2018. NewDominion contributed $5.8 million to other expense at PNB during 2018.

Income tax expense of $23.6 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 represented a decrease of $11.3 million compared to $34.9 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017.  The decrease in income tax expense was largely due to a decrease in the corporate federal income tax rate from 35% to 21%, effective January 1, 2018.

PNB's results for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016 included income and expense related to participations in legacy Vision assets. The impact of these participations on particular items within PNB's income and expense for these fiscal periods is detailed in the table below:

Net interest income increased to $2.6 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 from $2.1 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. The increase was the result of an increase in interest payments received from SEPH impaired loan relationships.

The $5.4 million increase in other income for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, compared to the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, was primarily the result of a $2.8 million increase in gains on sale of OREO, net, a $2.2 million gain on sale of loans and a $853,000 increase in loan fee income as a result of payments received from SEPH impaired loan relationships, offset by a $247,000 decrease in income related to OREO properties and a $219,000 increase in OREO devaluations.

The $1.3 million decrease in other expense for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, compared to the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, was the result of a $1.3 million decrease in legal fees and a $476,000 decrease in supplemental retirement plan expense which is included in miscellaneous expense, which was offset by a $651,000 increase in management and consulting fees resulting from the collection of payments on certain SEPH impaired loan relationships during 2018.

Note: The table above includes only those loans at PNB and GFSC, as these are the entities that have an allowance for loan loss balance. The table in the "Asset Quality Information" section of the financial information included with the Financial Results News Release, includes all Park loans (including those at SEPH) and thus shows slightly different information.

The allowance for loan losses of $51.5 million at December 31, 2018 represented a $1.5 million, or 3.0%, increase compared to $50.0 million at December 31, 2017. This increase was the result of a $1.6 million increase in specific reserves, which was partially offset by a $65,000 decrease in general reserves. As of December 31, 2018, no allowance had been established for acquired loans. Excluding acquired loans, the general reserve as a percentage of total loans less impaired commercial loans was 0.91%.

customer and employee relationships and business operations may be disrupted by the proposed merger of Park and CAB; Park issued equity securities in the acquisition of NewDominion Bank and may issue equity securities in connection with future acquisitions, including the proposed merger of Park and CAB, if consummated, which could cause ownership and economic dilution to Park's current shareholders; the discontinuation of LIBOR and other reference rates which may

The portion of the Financial Results New Release which addresses the authorization of 500,000 additional Park common shares for repurchase is incorporated herein by this reference.  The authorizations discussed above will be distinct from authorizations by the Park Board to repurchase Park common shares for purposes of funding the Park National Corporation 2017 Long-Term Incentive Plan for Employees and the Park National Corporation 2017 Long-Term Incentive Plan for Directors, which were described in “Item 8.01. Other Events” of the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Park on April 26, 2017.
 
The Park Board also authorized Park to enter into a trading plan under Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act, in accordance with the requirements of that Rule and other applicable regulatory requirements and upon such terms and conditions as the authorized officers of Park deem to be appropriate and in the best interests of Park and Park’s shareholders, which would permit Park common shares to be repurchased when Park might otherwise be precluded from doing so because of self-imposed trading blackout periods or other regulatory restrictions.

Park National Corporation reports 2018 financial results and
announces next step in leadership succession
Board increases quarterly cash dividend and awards special cash dividend
NEWARK, Ohio - Park National Corporation (Park) (NYSE American: PRK) today reported increased net income and earnings per share among its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2018 (three and twelve months ended December 31, 2018).
Park’s net income for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $26.3 million, a 15.0 percent increase from $22.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2017. Fourth quarter 2018 net income per diluted common share was $1.67, compared to $1.48 in the fourth quarter of 2017. Increased net interest income and increased non-interest income helped contribute to Park’s fourth quarter performance.
Park's net income for the full year 2018 was $110.4 million, a 31.0 percent increase from $84.2 million for the same period in 2017. Net income per diluted common share was $7.07 for 2018, compared to $5.47 for 2017.
Park's community-banking subsidiary, The Park National Bank, reported net income of $26.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, a 7.0 percent increase from $24.4 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2017. The bank’s net income was $109.5 million for the full year 2018, compared to $87.3 million for the same period in 2017.
“Our success in 2018 is the result of many factors, none more important than our bankers’ unwavering dedication and consistent hard work. From our most tenured bankers to our newest colleagues, each person played a critical role in producing excellent results,” said Park Chief Executive Officer (CEO) David L. Trautman.
Charlotte-based NewDominion Bank joined Park on July 1, 2018. On September 13, 2018 Park announced a definitive agreement and plan of merger and reorganization with CAB Financial Corporation (OTCQX: CABF) based in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Park expects to close the transaction in the first half of 2019 (subject to customary closing conditions).
Park's board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $1.01 per common share and a special cash dividend of $0.20 per common share, payable on March 8, 2019 to common shareholders of record as of February 15, 2019. The board also authorized Park to repurchase, from time to time following receipt of any required regulatory approvals, up to 500,000 Park common shares in addition to the 500,000 Park common shares which had been authorized for repurchase by Park’s board of directors on January 23, 2017 and currently remain available for repurchase. The authorizations result in an aggregate of up to 1,000,000 Park common shares being available for repurchase under the stock repurchase authorizations in the future.
The Park board proposed to take action to approve a plan for changes in executive leadership and governance at the Park board meeting immediately following Park's annual shareholder meeting on April 22, 2019.
Park's CEO David L. Trautman will be elected chairman of the board, as current Chairman C. Daniel DeLawder will continue employment in a reduced capacity and remain chair of the Park board’s executive committee. Trautman will retain the CEO role, and Park’s Executive Vice President Matthew R. Miller will be elected to serve as president and a member of the boards of directors for each of The Park National Bank and Park National Corporation. These changes will be effective May 1, 2019.

“We have a great history of carefully planned leadership succession at Park, and we’re following the model that has served our organization so well for several generations. Our consistent approach to leadership transition helps preserve our culture and community banking values,” said DeLawder, who has 48 years of service with Park. He has not announced a timeline for his official retirement.
At the April meeting, Park’s board will increase the number of directors from 13 to 14, and the additional director (Miller) will serve in the class of directors whose terms expire in 2020.
Headquartered in Newark, Ohio, Park National Corporation had $7.8 billion in total assets (as of December 31, 2018).

SAFE HARBOR STATEMENT UNDER THE PRIVATE SECURITIES LITIGATION REFORM ACT OF 1995
Park cautions that any forward-looking statements contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K or made by management of Park are provided to assist in the understanding of anticipated future financial performance. Forward-looking statements provide current expectations or forecasts of future events and are not guarantees of future performance.  The forward-looking statements are based on management’s expectations and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties.  Although management believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in such statements.  Risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially include, without limitation: Park's ability to execute our business plan successfully and within the expected timeframe; general economic and financial market conditions, specifically in the real estate markets and the credit markets, either nationally or in the states in which Park and our subsidiaries do business, may experience a slowing or reversal of the recent economic expansion in addition to continuing residual effects of recessionary conditions and an uneven spread of positive impacts of recovery on the economy and our counterparties, resulting in adverse impacts on the demand for loan, deposit and other financial services, delinquencies, defaults and counterparties' ability to meet credit and other obligations and the possible impairment of collectability of loans; changes in interest rates and prices may adversely impact prepayment penalty income, mortgage banking income, the value of securities, loans, deposits and other financial instruments and the interest rate sensitivity of our consolidated balance sheet as well as reduce interest margins and impact loan demand; changes in consumer spending, borrowing and saving habits, whether due to the tax reform legislation, changing business and economic conditions, legislative and regulatory initiatives, or other factors; changes in unemployment; changes in customers', suppliers', and other counterparties' performance and creditworthiness; the adequacy of our risk management program in the event of changes in the market, economic, operational, asset/liability repricing, liquidity, credit and interest rate risks associated with Park's business; disruption in the liquidity and other functioning of U.S. financial markets; our liquidity requirements could be adversely affected by changes to regulations governing bank and bank holding company capital and liquidity standards as well as by changes in our assets and liabilities; competitive factors among financial services organizations could increase significantly, including product and pricing pressures, changes to third-party relationships and our ability to attract, develop and retain qualified banking professionals; customers could pursue alternatives to bank deposits, causing us to lose a relatively inexpensive source of funding; uncertainty regarding the nature, timing, cost and effect of changes in banking regulations or other regulatory or legislative requirements affecting the respective businesses of Park and our subsidiaries, including major reform of the regulatory oversight structure of the financial services industry and changes in laws and regulations concerning taxes, pensions, bankruptcy, consumer protection, rent regulation and housing, financial accounting and reporting, environmental protection, insurance, bank products and services, bank capital and liquidity standards, fiduciary standards, securities and other aspects of the financial services industry, specifically the reforms provided for in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (the “Dodd-Frank Act”) and the Basel III regulatory capital reforms, as well as regulations already adopted and which may be adopted in the future by the relevant regulatory agencies, including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Federal Reserve Board, to implement the Dodd-Frank Act's provisions, and the Basel III regulatory capital reforms; the effects of easing restrictions on participants in the financial services industry; the effect of changes in accounting policies and practices, as may be adopted by the Financial Accounting Standards Board, the SEC, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board and other regulatory agencies, and the accuracy of our assumptions and estimates used to prepare our financial statements; changes in law and policy accompanying the current presidential administration, including the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and uncertainty or speculation pending the enactment of such changes; significant changes in the tax laws, which may adversely affect the fair values of net deferred tax assets and obligations of state and political subdivisions held in Park's investment securities portfolio; the impact of our ability to anticipate and respond to technological changes on our ability to respond to customer needs and meet competitive demands; operational issues stemming from and/or capital spending necessitated by the potential need to adapt to industry changes in information technology systems on which Park and our subsidiaries are highly dependent; the ability to secure confidential information and deliver products and services through the use of computer systems and telecommunications networks; a failure in or breach of our operational or security systems or infrastructure, or those of our third-party vendors and other service providers, resulting in failures or disruptions in

customer account management, general ledger, deposit, loan, or other systems, including as a result of cyber attacks; the existence or exacerbation of general geopolitical instability and uncertainty; the effect of trade policies (including the impact of tariffs, a U.S. withdrawal from or significant renegotiation of trade agreements, trade wars and other changes in trade regulations), monetary and other fiscal policies (including the impact of money supply and interest rate policies to the Federal Reserve Board) and other governmental policies of the U.S. federal government; the impact on financial markets and the economy of any changes in the credit ratings of the U.S. Treasury obligations and other U.S. government - backed debt, as well as issues surrounding the levels of U.S., European and Asian government debt and concerns regarding the creditworthiness of certain sovereign governments, supranationals and financial institutions in Europe and Asia; the uncertainty surrounding the actions to be taken to implement the referendum by United Kingdom voters to exit the European Union; our litigation and regulatory compliance exposure, including the costs and effects of any adverse developments in legal proceedings or other claims and the costs and effects of unfavorable resolution of regulatory and other governmental examinations or other inquiries; continued availability of earnings and excess capital sufficient for the lawful and prudent declaration of dividends; fraud, scams and schemes of third parties; the impact of widespread natural and other disasters, pandemics, dislocations, civil unrest, terrorist activities or international hostilities on the economy and financial markets generally and on us or our counterparties specifically; the effect of healthcare laws in the U.S. and potential changes for such laws which may increase our healthcare and other costs and negatively impact our operations and financial results; Park's ability to integrate recent acquisitions (including NewDominion Bank) as well as any future acquisitions, which may be unsuccessful, or may be more difficult, time-consuming or costly than expected; the ability to complete the proposed merger of Park and CAB Financial Corporation ("CAB") on the proposed terms and within the expected time frame; the risk that the businesses of Park and CAB will not be integrated successfully or such integration may be more difficult, time-consuming or costly than expected; expected revenue synergies and cost savings from the proposed merger of Park and CAB may not be fully realized or realized within the expected time frame; revenues following the proposed merger of Park and CAB may be lower than expected; customer and employee relationships and business operations may be disrupted by the proposed merger of Park and CAB; Park issued equity securities in the acquisition of NewDominion Bank and may issue equity securities in connection with future acquisitions, including the proposed merger of Park and CAB, if consummated, which could cause ownership and economic dilution to Park's current shareholders; the discontinuation of LIBOR and other reference rates which may result in increased expenses and litigation, and adversely impact the effectiveness of hedging strategies; and other risk factors relating to the banking industry as detailed from time to time in Park's reports filed with the SEC including those described in "Item 1A. Risk Factors" of Part I of Park's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. Park does not undertake, and specifically disclaims any obligation, to publicly release the results of any revisions that may be made to update any forward-looking statement to reflect the events or circumstances after the date on which the forward-looking statement was made, or reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except to the extent required by law.

(g) Efficiency ratio is calculated by dividing total other expense by the sum of fully taxable equivalent net interest income and other income. Fully taxable equivalent net interest income reconciliation is shown below assuming a 21% corporate federal income tax rate for 2018 and a 35% corporate federal income tax rate for 2017. Additionally, net interest margin is calculated on a fully taxable equivalent basis by dividing fully taxable equivalent net interest income by average interest earning assets.
