SmartFinancial and Entegra disclaim any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements contained in this communication, which speak only as of the date hereof, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresStatements included in this presentation include non-GAAP financial measures and should be read along with the accompanying tables, which provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures used in this presentation include: (i) tangible common equity, (ii) tangible book value per share, (iii) core net interest margin, (iv) operating efficiency ratio, (v) operating return on average assets, (vi) operating earnings per share, and (vii) operating return on tangible common equity. Tangible common equity excludes total preferred stock, preferred stock paid in capital, goodwill, and other intangible assets, and tangible book value per share reflects the per share value of tangible common equity. Core net interest margin adjusts net interest margin to exclude the impact of purchase accounting. The operating efficiency ratio excludes securities gains and losses and merger related expenses from the efficiency ratio. Net operating income excludes securities gains and losses and merger related expenses, and the effect of the December, 2017 tax law change on deferred tax assets, and the income tax effect of adjustments, and operating return on average assets is net operating income divided by GAAP total average assets. Operating earnings per share is net operating income divided by GAAP total average assets. Operating return on tangible common equity is net operating income divided by tangible common equity. Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide additional useful information that allows readers to evaluate the ongoing performance of the company and provide meaningful comparisons to its peers. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to any measure of performance or financial condition as promulgated under GAAP, and investors should consider SmartFinancial's performance and financial condition as reported under GAAP and all other relevant information when assessing the performance or financial condition of the company. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the results or financial condition as reported under GAAP.3
