NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The accompanying unaudited consolidated interim financial statements of PrivateBancorp, Inc. (“PrivateBancorp” or the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and do not include certain information and footnote disclosures required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete annual financial statements. Accordingly, these financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015.

The accompanying unaudited consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and (where applicable) in accordance with accounting and reporting guidelines prescribed by bank regulation and authority, and reflect all adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for the fair presentation of the financial position and results of operations for the periods presented. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year or any other period.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts and results of operations of the Company and its subsidiary, The PrivateBank and Trust Company (the “Bank”), after elimination of all significant intercompany accounts and transactions. Certain reclassifications have been made to prior period amounts to conform to the current period presentation. The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

In preparing the consolidated financial statements, we have considered the impact of events occurring subsequent to March 31, 2016, for potential recognition or disclosure.

2. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period - On January 1, 2016, we adopted new accounting guidance issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) that clarifies the accounting for a performance target that affects vesting of a share-based payment award and that could be achieved after the requisite service period. The guidance indicates that such a performance target would not be reflected in the estimation of the award’s grant date fair value. Rather, compensation cost for such an award would be recognized over the requisite service period, if it is probable that the performance target will be achieved. The total amount of compensation cost recognized during and after the requisite service period would reflect the number of awards that are expected to vest and would be adjusted to reflect those awards that ultimately vest. The guidance is applied prospectively to awards that are granted or modified after the effective date. The adoption of this guidance did not impact our consolidated financial position or consolidated results of operations.

Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis - On January 1, 2016, we adopted new accounting guidance issued by the FASB that changes certain aspects of the variable interest and voting interest consolidation models. The amendments modify existing guidance on (1) the evaluation of whether limited partnerships and similar legal entities are variable interest entities (“VIEs”) or voting interest entities, (2) when fee arrangements represent variable interests in a VIE, and (3) the primary beneficiary determination for VIEs. Additionally, the guidance eliminates the presumption that a general partner controls a limited partnership under the voting interest model and exempts reporting entities from consolidating money market funds that are required to comply with or operate in accordance with requirements that are similar to those in Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act of 1940. The Company elected to apply the guidance through a cumulative effect adjustment as of January 1, 2016. The adoption of this guidance did not impact our consolidated financial position or consolidated results of operations.

Debt Issuance Costs - On January 1, 2016, we adopted new accounting guidance issued by the FASB that clarifies the presentation of debt issuance costs within the balance sheet. This guidance requires that an entity present debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability on the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, not as a separate asset. The standard does not affect the current guidance for the recognition and measurement for debt issuance costs. This guidance was applied retrospectively. The adoption of this guidance did not materially impact our consolidated financial position or consolidated results of operations.

Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting - In March 2016, the FASB issued guidance that amends certain aspects of share-based payment accounting. The new guidance (1) requires all income tax effects of awards to be recognized in the income statement when the awards vest or are settled, and eliminates the accounting for additional paid-in-capital (“APIC”) pools; (2) allows the Company to repurchase more of an employee's shares for tax withholding purposes without triggering liability accounting; (3) requires the Company to make an accounting policy election to either recognize forfeitures as they occur or estimate the number of awards expected to be forfeited; (4) requires the Company to present excess tax benefits as an operating activity on the statement of cash flows; and (5) clarifies that the Company must classify cash paid to a tax authority when shares are withheld to satisfy its statutory income tax withholding obligation as a financing activity on the statement of cash flows. Regarding the accounting policy election related to the accounting for forfeitures, the Company has elected to estimate the number of awards expected to be forfeited, consistent with our past practice of estimating forfeitures. As permitted under the new guidance, the Company has elected to early adopt the guidance for the Company’s financial statements that include periods beginning on January 1, 2016. The Company has applied the guidance related to items (1) and (4) prospectively; the guidance related to item (5) retrospectively; and the guidance related to items (2) and (3) using a modified retrospective transition method with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings. In the first quarter 2016, the Company recognized a $2.1 million tax benefit in the consolidated statements of income within the income tax provision, representing the prospective application of the accounting change described in (1) above. Adoption of all other changes did not have an impact on our consolidated financial position or consolidated results of operations.

Accounting Pronouncements Pending Adoption

Revenue from Contracts with Customers - In May 2014, August 2015 and March 2016, the FASB issued new revenue recognition guidance that will replace most of the existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP. All arrangements involving the transfer of goods or services to customers are within the scope of the guidance, except for certain contracts subject to other U.S. GAAP guidance, including lease contracts and rights and obligations related to financial instruments. The standard’s core principle is that an entity should recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance also includes new disclosure requirements related to the nature, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. The guidance is effective for the Company’s financial statements beginning January 1, 2018. The Company may choose to apply the new standard either retrospectively or through a cumulative effect adjustment as of January 1, 2018. The Company is in the process of determining the effect of the new guidance on our financial position and consolidated results of operations, as well as which transition method to use.

Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern - In August 2014, the FASB issued guidance that requires management to evaluate whether there are conditions and events that raise substantial doubt about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern. The guidance requires new disclosures to the extent management concludes there is substantial doubt about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern. The guidance will be effective for the Company’s annual financial statements dated December 31, 2016, as well as interim periods thereafter. The adoption of this guidance is not expected to have a material impact on our financial position or consolidated results of operations.

Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities - In January 2016, the FASB issued guidance that amends the accounting for certain financial asset and financial liabilities. The guidance will require the Company to (1) measure certain equity investments at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in earnings, (2) record changes in instrument-specific credit risk for financial liabilities measured under the fair value option in other comprehensive income, and (3) assess the realizability of deferred tax assets related to available-for-sale debt securities in combination with the Company’s other deferred tax assets. The standard does not change the guidance for classifying and measuring investments in debt securities and loans. The guidance amends certain disclosure requirements related to financial assets and financial liabilities. The guidance will be effective for the Company’s financial statements that include periods beginning January 1, 2018. Certain provisions of the standard will be applied through a cumulative-effect adjustment as of January 1, 2018, and other provisions will be applied prospectively. The Company is in the process of determining the effect of the new guidance on our financial position and consolidated results of operations.

Leases - In February 2016, the FASB issued guidance that amends the accounting for leases. Under the new guidance, lessees will need to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for the vast majority of leases. Operating leases will result in straight-line expense, while finance leases will result in a front-loaded expense pattern. Classification will be based on criteria that are largely similar to those applied in current lease accounting. Lessor accounting will remain similar to the current model. Lessors will classify leases as operating, direct financing, or sales-type, consistent with the current model. The new guidance will also require extensive quantitative and qualitative disclosures related to the revenue and expense recognized and expected to be recognized over the lease term, as well as significant judgments made by management. The guidance will be effective for the Company’s financial statements that include periods beginning January 1, 2018, and early adoption is permitted. The new standard

must be applied using a modified retrospective transition. The Company is in the process of determining the effect of the new guidance on our financial position and consolidated results of operations.

There were $192.2 million of securities with $1.4 million in an unrealized loss position for greater than 12 months at March 31, 2016. At December 31, 2015, there were $248.5 million of securities with $5.8 million in an unrealized loss position for greater than 12 months. The Company does not consider these unrealized losses to be credit-related. These unrealized losses relate to

12


changes in interest rates and market spreads. We do not intend to sell the securities and we do not believe it is more likely than not that we will be required to sell the investments before recovery of their amortized cost bases, which may be at maturity.

We conduct a quarterly assessment of our investment portfolio to determine whether any securities are other-than-temporarily impaired. During the year ended December 31, 2015, we identified three municipal debt securities from the same issuer totaling $1.1 million, which had credit rating downgrades during the period. We determined that the difference between amortized cost and fair value was other-than-temporary and accordingly, recognized the $466,000 difference as a component of net securities gains in the consolidated statement of income. The securities were sold in January 2016 with no further losses recognized. No other securities were considered other-than-temporary impaired during the first quarter 2016.

The following table presents the remaining contractual maturity of securities as of March 31, 2016, by amortized cost and fair value.

Impaired Loans

Impaired loans consist of nonaccrual loans (which include nonaccrual troubled debt restructurings (“TDRs”)) and loans classified as accruing TDRs. A loan is considered impaired when, based on current information and events, either (i) management believes that it is probable that we will be unable to collect all amounts due (both principal and interest) according to the original contractual terms of the loan agreement, or (ii) it has been classified as a TDR due to providing a concession to a borrower that is inconsistent with the risk profile.

The following two tables present our recorded investment in impaired loans outstanding by product segment, including our recorded investment in impaired loans, which represents the principal amount outstanding, net of unearned income, deferred loan fees and costs, and any direct principal charge-offs.

Credit Quality Indicators

We attempt to mitigate risk through loan structure, collateral, monitoring, and other credit risk management controls. We have adopted an internal risk rating policy in which each loan is rated for credit quality with a numerical rating of 1 through 8. Loans rated 5 and better (1-5 ratings, inclusive) are considered “pass” rated credits that we believe exhibit acceptable financial performance, cash flow, and leverage. Credits rated 6 are performing in accordance with contractual terms but are considered “special mention” as they demonstrate potential weakness that, if left unresolved, may result in deterioration in our credit position and/or the repayment prospects for the credit. Borrowers rated special mention may exhibit adverse operating trends, high leverage, tight liquidity or other credit concerns. Loans rated 7 may be classified as either accruing (“potential problem”) or nonaccrual (“nonperforming”). Potential problem loans, like special mention, are loans that are performing in accordance with contractual

16


terms, but for which management has some level of concern (greater than that of special mention loans) about the ability of the borrowers to meet existing repayment terms in future periods. Potential problem loans continue to accrue interest but the ultimate collection of these loans in full is a risk due to the same conditions that characterize a 6-rated credit. These credits may also have somewhat increased risk profiles as a result of the current net worth and/or paying capacity of the obligor or guarantors or a declining value of the collateral pledged. These loans generally have a well-defined weakness that may jeopardize collection of the debt and are characterized by the distinct possibility that we may sustain some loss if the deficiencies are not resolved. Although these loans are generally identified as potential problem loans and require additional attention by management, they may never become nonperforming. Nonperforming loans include nonaccrual loans risk-rated 7 or 8 and have all the weaknesses inherent in a 7-rated potential problem loan with the added characteristic that the weaknesses make collection or liquidation in full, on the basis of currently-existing facts, conditions and values, highly questionable and improbable. Special mention, potential problem and nonperforming loans are reviewed, at a minimum, on a quarterly basis, while all other rated credits over a certain dollar threshold, depending on loan type, are reviewed annually or more frequently as the circumstances warrant.
