FORWARD – LOOKING STATEMENT This presentation contains forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to: • The expected revenues, cost savings, synergies and other benefits from our other merger and acquisition activities might not be realized within the anticipated time frames or at all, and costs or difficulties relating to integration matters, including but not limited to, customer and employee retention, might be greater than expected; • The credit and concentration risks of lending activities; • Changes in general economic conditions, either nationally or in our market areas; • Competitive market pricing factors and interest rate risks; • Market interest rate volatility; • Balance sheet (for example, loan) concentrations; • Fluctuations in demand for loans and other financial services in our market areas; • Changes in legislative or regulatory requirements or the results of regulatory examinations; • The ability to recruit and retain key management and staff; • Risks associated with our ability to implement our expansion strategy and merger integration; • Stability of funding sources and continued availability of borrowings; • Adverse changes in the securities markets; • The inability of key third-party providers to perform their obligations to us; • Changes in accounting policies and practices and the use of estimates in determining fair value of certain of our assets, which estimates may prove to be incorrect and result in significant declines in valuation; and • These and other risks as may be detailed from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Heritage cautions readers not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Moreover, you should treat these statements as speaking only as of the date they are made and based only on information then actually known to Heritage. Heritage does not undertake and specifically disclaims any obligation to revise any forward-looking statements to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances after the date of such statements. These risks could cause our actual results for the second quarter of 2019 and beyond to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements by, or on behalf of, us, and could negatively affect Heritage’s operating and stock price performance. 2
