    Company Release - 06/18/2010 21:34

    Adds Northern Nevada to Footprint;

    Fourth FDIC-assisted Acquisition Since 2009

    PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Umpqua Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: UMPQ) announced that its subsidiary, Umpqua Bank, has acquired the banking operations of Nevada Security Bank, Reno, Nev., and its California division, Silverado Bank, in a purchase and assumption agreement with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). This is the third FDIC-assisted transaction for Umpqua Bank this year and the fourth since 2009. The transaction expands the bank’s footprint from three to four Western states: Oregon, Washington, California and now Nevada, with three new locations in Reno and one in Lake Tahoe’s Incline Village.

    As of March 31, 2010, Nevada Security Bank had $492 million in assets and $480 million in deposits. Nevada Security Bank’s $342 million in loans are subject to a loss-sharing agreement with the FDIC. Umpqua Bank expects the acquisition to be immediately accretive to operating earnings per share. The transaction will increase Umpqua’s assets to approximately $11 billion and deposits to approximately $8.6 billion, based on Umpqua’s balances as of March 31, 2010.

    “While Umpqua Bank is a new name in Nevada, we have 57 years of history in the Pacific Northwest and are considered one of the strongest and most well capitalized community banks in the country,” said Ray Davis, chief executive officer of Umpqua Holdings Corporation. “We are pleased to help restore financial footing and welcome former Nevada Security Bank and Silverado Bank customers to Umpqua. Customers’ deposits are safe and secure, and we look forward to bringing new lending opportunities to the community. We anticipate this to be a smooth transition, and we are looking forward to becoming an active member of the Northern Nevada region.”

    Today’s acquisition announcement follows a decision by the Nevada Financial Institutions Division to close Nevada Security Bank and have the FDIC accept receivership.

    Umpqua Bank participated in a competitive bid process with the FDIC. The accepted bid included no deposit premium and a discount bid of 4.9 percent on assets acquired.

    Starting Monday, June 21, all five of Nevada Security Bank’s locations, including its Silverado Bank division in Roseville, Calif., will open as Umpqua Bank stores at normal hours, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The transaction increases Umpqua’s network to 181 store locations throughout Northern Nevada, Northern California, Oregon and Washington. Customers of Nevada Security Bank and Silverado Bank are now customers of Umpqua Bank and deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC up to the maximum permitted by law.

    Umpqua Bank is working closely with former Nevada Security Bank and Silverado Bank employees to ensure that customers will be able to conduct business as usual, with full access to deposits, loans, ATM/debit cards, online banking, automatic billpay service and other electronic banking services. Checks drawn on Nevada Security Bank and Silverado Bank will continue to be processed. Loan customers should continue to make their payments as they normally would.

    Umpqua Bank expects to convert Nevada Security Bank’s consumer banking, residential lending, commercial and small business services to the Umpqua Bank brand over the next several months. Umpqua Bank, Nevada Security Bank and Silverado Bank customers will be able to access the combined network of 201 ATMs without fees within two weeks.

    Umpqua Bank representatives are on-site at all former Nevada Security Bank and Silverado Bank locations to assist in the transition, address customer needs and begin integrating operations.
