FIRST FINANCIAL BANKSHARES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

Note 1 - Basis of Presentation

The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, a Texas corporation and a financial holding company registered under the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956, as amended, or BHCA, and its wholly-owned subsidiaries: First Financial Bank, National Association, Abilene, Texas; First Technology Services, Inc.; First Financial Trust & Asset Management Company, National Association; First Financial Investments, Inc.; and First Financial Insurance Agency, Inc.

Through our subsidiary bank, we conduct a full-service commercial banking business. Our banking centers are located primarily in Central, North Central, Southeast and West Texas. As of June 30, 2016, we had 69 financial centers across Texas, with eleven locations in Abilene, three locations in San Angelo and Weatherford, two locations in Cleburne, Conroe, Stephenville and Granbury, and one location each in Acton, Albany, Aledo, Alvarado, Beaumont, Boyd, Bridgeport, Brock, Burleson, Cisco, Clyde, Cut and Shoot, Decatur, Eastland, Fort Worth, Glen Rose, Grapevine, Hereford, Huntsville, Keller, Magnolia, Mauriceville, Merkel, Midlothian, Mineral Wells, Montgomery, Moran, New Waverly, Newton, Odessa, Orange, Port Arthur, Ranger, Rising Star, Roby, Southlake, Sweetwater, Tomball, Trent, Trophy Club, Vidor, Waxahachie, Willis and Willow Park, all in Texas. Our trust subsidiary has eight locations which are located in Abilene, Fort Worth, Lubbock, Odessa, Beaumont, San Angelo, Stephenville and Sweetwater.

In the opinion of management, the unaudited interim consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial position and unaudited results of operations and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements, and notes thereto in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, for the year ended December 31, 2015. All adjustments were of a normal recurring nature. However, the results of operations for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2016, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2016, due to seasonality, changes in economic conditions and loan credit quality, interest rate fluctuations, regulatory and legislative changes and other factors. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) require management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the financial statement date. Actual results could vary. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted under U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) rules and regulations. The Company evaluated subsequent events for potential recognition and/or disclosure through the date the consolidated financial statements were issued.

On April 28, 2015, the Company’s shareholders approved an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Formation to increase the number of authorized common shares to 120,000,000.

Goodwill and other intangible assets are evaluated annually for impairment as of the end of the second quarter. No such impairment has been noted in connection with the current or any prior evaluations.

Note 2 – Stock Repurchase

On October 28, 2014, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to 1,500,000 common shares through September 30, 2017. The stock buyback plan authorizes management to repurchase the stock at such time as repurchases are considered beneficial to shareholders. Any repurchase of stock will be made through the open market, block trades or in privately negotiated transactions in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Under the repurchase plan, there is no minimum number of shares that the Company is required to repurchase. Through June 30, 2016, no shares were repurchased under this authorization.

Note 3 - Earnings Per Share

Basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing net income available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the periods presented. In computing diluted earnings per common share for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, the Company assumes that all dilutive outstanding options to purchase common stock have been exercised at the beginning of the period (or the time of issuance, if later). The dilutive effect of the restricted stock and the outstanding options is reflected by application of the treasury stock method, whereby the proceeds from the restricted stock and exercised options are assumed to be used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the respective periods. The weighted average common shares outstanding used in computing basic earnings per common share for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 were 66,016,562 and 64,148,356 shares, respectively. The weighted average common shares outstanding used in computing basic earnings per common share for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 were 65,995,560 and 64,135,731 shares, respectively. The weighted average common shares outstanding used in computing fully diluted earnings per common share for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 were 66,138,275 and 64,354,720 shares, respectively. The weighted average common shares outstanding used in computing fully diluted earnings per common share for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 were 66,153,579 and 64,328,672 shares, respectively.

Note 4 - Interest-bearing Time Deposits in Banks and Securities

Interest-bearing time deposits in banks totaled $2,427,000, $5,456,000 and $3,495,000 at June 30, 2016 and 2015 and December 31, 2015, respectively, and have original maturities generally ranging from one to three years.

Management classifies debt and equity securities as held-to-maturity, available-for-sale, or trading based on its intent. Debt securities that management has the positive intent and ability to hold to maturity are classified as held-to-maturity and recorded at cost, adjusted for amortization of premiums and accretion of discounts, which are recognized as adjustments to interest income using the interest method. Securities not classified as held-to-maturity or trading are classified as available-for-sale and recorded at fair value, with all unrealized gains and unrealized losses judged to be temporary, net of deferred income taxes, excluded from earnings and reported in the consolidated statements of comprehensive earnings. Available-for-sale securities that have unrealized losses that are judged other-than-temporary are included in gain (loss) on sale of securities and a new cost basis is established. Securities classified as trading are recorded at fair value with unrealized gains and losses included in earnings.

The Company records its available-for-sale and trading securities portfolio at fair value. Fair values of these securities are determined based on methodologies in accordance with current authoritative accounting guidance. Fair values are volatile and may be influenced by a number of factors, including market interest rates, prepayment speeds, discount rates, credit ratings and yield curves. Fair values for investment securities are based on quoted market prices, where available. If quoted market prices are not available, fair values are based on the quoted prices of similar instruments or an estimate of fair value by using a range of fair value estimates in the market place as a result of the illiquid market specific to the type of security.

Table of Contents

When the fair value of a security is below its amortized cost, and depending on the length of time the condition exists and the extent the fair value is below amortized cost, additional analysis is performed to determine whether an other-than-temporary impairment condition exists. Available-for-sale and held-to-maturity securities are analyzed quarterly for possible other-than-temporary impairment. The analysis considers (i) whether we have the intent to sell our securities prior to recovery and/or maturity, (ii) whether it is more likely than not that we will have to sell our securities prior to recovery and/or maturity, (iii) the length of time and extent to which the fair value has been less than amortized cost, and (iv) the financial condition of the issuer. Often, the information available to conduct these assessments is limited and rapidly changing, making estimates of fair value subject to judgment. If actual information or conditions are different than estimated, the extent of the impairment of the security may be different than previously estimated, which could have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations and financial condition.

The Company’s investment portfolio consists of U.S. Treasury securities, obligations of U.S. government sponsored enterprises and agencies, obligations of states and political subdivisions, mortgage pass-through securities, corporate bonds and general obligation or revenue based municipal bonds. Pricing for such securities is generally readily available and transparent in the market. The Company utilizes independent third party pricing services to value its investment securities, which the Company reviews as well as the underlying pricing methodologies for reasonableness and to ensure such prices are aligned with pricing matrices. The Company validates quarterly, on a sample basis, prices supplied by the independent pricing services by comparison to prices obtained from other third party sources.

Disclosures related to the Company’s held-to-maturity securities, which totaled $137,000, $295,000 and $278,000 at June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015, respectively, have not been presented due to insignificance.

The Company invests in mortgage-backed securities that have expected maturities that differ from their contractual maturities. These differences arise because borrowers may have the right to call or prepay obligations with or without a prepayment penalty. These securities include collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs) and other asset backed securities. The expected maturities of these securities at June 30, 2016 were computed by using scheduled amortization of balances and historical prepayment rates. At June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015, the Company did not hold CMOs that entail higher risks than standard mortgage-backed securities.

The number of investments in an unrealized loss position totaled 24 at June 30, 2016. We do not believe these unrealized losses are “other-than-temporary” as (i) we do not have the intent to sell our securities prior to recovery and/or maturity and (ii) it is more likely than not that we will not have to sell our securities prior to recovery and/or maturity. In making this determination, we also consider the length of time and extent to which fair value has been less than cost and the financial condition of the issuer. The unrealized losses noted are interest rate related due to the level of interest rates at June 30, 2016 compared to the time of purchase. We have reviewed the ratings of the issuers and have not identified any issues related to the ultimate repayment of principal as a result of credit concerns on these securities. Our mortgage related securities are backed by GNMA, FNMA and FHLMC or are collateralized by securities backed by these agencies. At June 30, 2016, 80.05% of our available-for-sale securities that are obligations of states and political subdivisions were issued within the State of Texas, of which 30.25% are guaranteed by the Texas Permanent School Fund.

At June 30, 2016, $1,718,683,000 of the Company’s securities were pledged as collateral for public or trust fund deposits, repurchase agreements and for other purposes required or permitted by law.

During the quarters ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, sales of investment securities that were classified as available-for-sale totaled $12,829,000 and $6,631,000, respectively. Gross realized gains from security sales during the second quarter of 2016 and 2015 totaled $912,000 and $243,000, respectively. Gross realized losses from security sales during the second quarter of 2015 totaled $4,000. There were no gross realized losses during the second quarter of 2016. During the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, sales of investment securities that were classified as available-for-sale totaled $13,382,000 and $7,760,000, respectively. Gross realized gains from security sales during the six-month period ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 totaled $919,000 and $248,000, respectively. Gross realized losses from security sales during the six-month periods ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 totaled $5,000 and $4,000, respectively.

The specific identification method was used to determine cost in order to compute the realized gains and losses.

Note 5 - Loans and Allowance for Loan Losses

Loans held for investment are stated at the amount of unpaid principal, reduced by unearned income and an allowance for loan losses. Interest on loans is calculated by using the simple interest method on daily balances of the principal amounts outstanding. The Company defers and amortizes net loan origination fees and costs as an adjustment to yield. The allowance for loan losses is established through a provision for loan losses charged to expense. Loans are charged against the allowance for loan losses when management believes the collectability of the principal is unlikely.

The Company has certain lending policies and procedures in place that are designed to maximize loan income with an acceptable level of risk. Management reviews and approves these policies and procedures on an annual basis and makes changes as appropriate. Management receives and reviews monthly reports related to loan originations, quality, concentrations, delinquencies, nonperforming and potential problem loans. Diversification in the loan portfolio is a means of managing risk associated with fluctuations in economic conditions, both by type of loan and geographic location.

Commercial loans are underwritten after evaluating and understanding the borrower’s ability to operate profitably and effectively. Underwriting standards are designed to determine whether the borrower possesses sound business ethics and practices and to evaluate current and projected cash flows to determine the ability of the borrower to repay their obligations as agreed. Commercial loans are primarily made based on the identified cash flows of the borrower and, secondarily, on the underlying collateral provided by the borrower. Most commercial loans are secured by the assets being financed or other business assets, such as accounts receivable or inventory, and include personal guarantees.

Agricultural loans are subject to underwriting standards and processes similar to commercial loans. These agricultural loans are based primarily on the identified cash flows of the borrower and secondarily on the underlying collateral provided by the borrower. Most agricultural loans are secured by the agriculture related assets being financed, such as farm land, cattle or equipment, and include personal guarantees.

Table of Contents

Real estate loans are also subject to underwriting standards and processes similar to commercial and agricultural loans. These loans are underwritten primarily based on projected cash flows and, secondarily, as loans secured by real estate. The repayment of real estate loans is generally largely dependent on the successful operation of the property securing the loans or the business conducted on the property securing the loan. Real estate loans may be more adversely affected by conditions in the real estate markets or in the general economy. The properties securing the Company’s real estate portfolio are generally diverse in terms of type and geographic location within Texas. This diversity helps reduce the exposure to adverse economic events that affect any single market or industry. Generally, real estate loans are owner occupied which further reduces the Company’s risk.

Consumer loan underwriting utilizes methodical credit standards and analysis to supplement the Company’s underwriting policies and procedures. The Company’s loan policy addresses types of consumer loans that may be originated and the collateral, if secured, which must be perfected. The relatively smaller individual dollar amounts of consumer loans that are spread over numerous individual borrowers also minimize the Company’s risk.

The allowance for loan losses is an amount which represents management’s best estimate of probable losses that are inherent in the Company’s loan portfolio as of the balance sheet date. The allowance for loan losses is comprised of three elements: (i) specific reserves determined based on probable losses on specific classified loans; (ii) a historical valuation reserve component that considers historical loss rates; and (iii) qualitative reserves based upon general economic conditions and other qualitative risk factors both internal and external to the Company. The allowance for loan losses is increased by charges to income and decreased by charge-offs (net of recoveries). Management’s periodic evaluation of the appropriateness of the allowance is based on general economic conditions, the financial condition of borrowers, the value and liquidity of collateral, delinquency, prior loan loss experience, and the results of periodic reviews of the portfolio. For purposes of determining our historical valuation reserve, the loan portfolio, less cash secured loans, government guaranteed loans and classified loans, is multiplied by the Company’s historical loss rate. Specific allocations are increased or decreased in accordance with deterioration or improvement in credit quality and a corresponding increase or decrease in risk of loss on a particular loan. In addition, we adjust our allowance for qualitative factors such as current local economic conditions and trends, including, without limitations, unemployment, oil and gas prices, drought conditions, changes in lending staff, policies and procedures, changes in credit concentrations, changes in the trends and severity of problem loans and changes in trends in volume and terms of loans. This qualitative reserve serves to estimate for additional areas of losses inherent in our portfolio that are not reflected in our historic loss factors.

Although we believe we use the best information available to make loan loss allowance determinations, future adjustments could be necessary if circumstances or economic conditions differ substantially from the assumptions used in making our initial determinations. A downturn in the economy and employment could result in increased levels of non-performing assets and charge-offs, increased loan provisions and reductions in income. Additionally, bank regulatory agencies periodically review our allowance for loan losses and methodology and could require, in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, additional provisions to the allowance for loan losses based on their judgment of information available to them at the time of their examination as well as changes to our methodology.

Accrual of interest is discontinued on a loan and payments are applied to principal when management believes, after considering economic and business conditions and collection efforts, the borrower’s financial condition is such that collection of interest is doubtful. Except consumer loans, generally all loans past due greater than 90 days, based on contractual terms, are placed on non-accrual. Loans are returned to accrual status when all the principal and interest amounts contractually due are brought current and future payments are reasonably assured. Consumer loans are generally charged-off when a loan becomes past due 90 days. For other loans in the portfolio, facts and circumstances are evaluated in making charge-off decisions.

Loans are considered impaired when, based on current information and events, management determines that it is probable we will be unable to collect all amounts due in accordance with the loan agreement, including scheduled principal and interest payments. If a loan is impaired, a specific valuation allowance is allocated, if necessary. Interest payments on impaired loans are typically applied to principal unless collectability of the principal amount is reasonably assured, in which case interest is recognized on a cash basis. Impaired loans, or portions thereof, are charged off when deemed uncollectable.

The Company’s policy requires measurement of the allowance for an impaired, collateral dependent loan based on the fair value of the collateral. Other loan impairments for non-collateral dependent loans are measured based on the present value of expected future cash flows or the loan’s observable market price. At June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015, all significant impaired loans have been determined to be collateral dependent and the allowance for loss has been measured utilizing the estimated fair value of the collateral.

From time to time, the Company modifies its loan agreement with a borrower. A modified loan is considered a troubled debt restructuring when two conditions are met: (i) the borrower is experiencing financial difficulty and (ii) concessions are made by the Company that would not otherwise be considered for a borrower with similar credit risk characteristics. Modifications to loan terms may include a lower interest rate, a reduction of principal, or a longer term to maturity. For all impaired loans, including the Company’s troubled debt restructurings, the Company performs a periodic, well-documented credit evaluation of the borrower’s financial condition and prospects for repayment to assess the likelihood that all principal and interest payments required under the terms of the agreement will be collected in full. When doubt exists about the ultimate collectability of principal and interest, the troubled debt restructuring remains on non-accrual status and payments received are applied to reduce principal to the extent necessary to eliminate such doubt. This determination of accrual status is judgmental and is based on facts and circumstances related to each troubled debt restructuring. Each of these loans is individually evaluated for impairment and a specific reserve is recorded based on probable losses, taking into consideration the related collateral, modified loan terms and cash flow. As of June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015, substantially all of the Company’s troubled debt restructured loans are included in the non-accrual totals.

The Company originates certain mortgage loans for sale in the secondary market. Accordingly, these loans are classified as held-for-sale and are carried at the lower of cost or fair value on an aggregate basis. The mortgage loan sales contracts contain indemnification clauses should the loans default, generally in the first three to six months, or if documentation is determined not to be in compliance with regulations. The Company’s historic losses as a result of these indemnities have been insignificant.

Loans acquired, including loans acquired in a business combination, are initially recorded at fair value with no valuation allowance. Acquired loans are segregated between those considered to be credit impaired and those deemed performing. To make this determination, management considers such factors as past due status, non-accrual status and credit risk ratings. The fair value of acquired performing loans is determined by discounting expected cash flows, both principal and interest, at prevailing market interest rates. The difference between the fair value and principal balances at acquisition date, the fair value discount, is accreted into interest income over the estimated life of the acquired loan portfolio.

Purchased credit impaired loans are those loans that showed evidence of deterioration of credit quality since origination and for which it is probable, at acquisition, that the Company will be unable to collect all amounts contractually owed. Their acquisition fair value, which includes a credit component at the acquisition date, was based on the estimate of cash flows, both principal and interest, expected to be collected or estimated collateral values if cash flows are not estimable, discounted at prevailing market rates of interest. The difference between the discounted cash flows expected at acquisition and the investment in the loan is recognized as interest income on a level-yield method over the life of the loan,

unless management was unable to reasonably forecast cash flows in which case the loans were placed on nonaccrual. Contractually required payments for interest and principal that exceed the cash flows expected at acquisition are not recognized as a yield adjustment. Increases in expected cash flows subsequent to the initial investment are recognized prospectively through adjustment of the yield on the loan over its remaining life. Decreases in expected cash flows subsequent to acquisition are recognized as impairment. Valuation allowances on these impaired loans reflect only losses incurred after the acquisition. The carrying amount of purchased credit impaired loans at June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015, was $1,654,000, $1,123,000 and $2,178,000, respectively, compared to a contractual balance of $2,362,000, $1,648,000, and $2,936,000, respectively. Other purchased credit impaired loan disclosures were omitted due to immateriality.

The Company recognized interest income on impaired loans prior to being recognized as impaired of approximately $922,000 during the year ended December 31, 2015. Such amounts for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 were not significant.

From a credit risk standpoint, the Company rates its loans in one of four categories: (i) pass, (ii) special mention, (iii) substandard or (iv) doubtful. Loans rated as loss are charged-off.

The ratings of loans reflect a judgment about the risks of default and loss associated with the loan. The Company reviews the ratings on our credits as part of our on-going monitoring of the credit quality of our loan portfolio. Ratings are adjusted to reflect the degree of risk and loss that are felt to be inherent in each credit as of each reporting period. Our methodology is structured so that specific allocations are increased in accordance with deterioration in credit quality (and a corresponding increase in risk and loss) or decreased in accordance with improvement in credit quality (and a corresponding decrease in risk and loss).

Credits rated special mention show clear signs of financial weaknesses or deterioration in credit worthiness, however, such concerns are not so pronounced that the Company generally expects to experience significant loss within the short-term. Such credits typically maintain the ability to perform within standard credit terms and credit exposure is not as prominent as credits rated more harshly.

Credits rated substandard are those in which the normal repayment of principal and interest may be, or has been, jeopardized by reason of adverse trends or developments of a financial, managerial, economic or political nature, or important weaknesses exist in collateral. A protracted workout on these credits is a distinct possibility. Prompt corrective action is therefore required to strengthen the Company’s position, and/or to reduce exposure and to assure that adequate remedial measures are taken by the borrower. Credit exposure becomes more likely in such credits and a serious evaluation of the secondary support to the credit is performed.

Credits rated doubtful are those in which full collection of principal appears highly questionable, and which some degree of loss is anticipated, even though the ultimate amount of loss may not yet be certain and/or other factors exist which could affect collection of debt. Based upon available information, positive action by the Company is required to avert or minimize loss. Credits rated doubtful are generally also placed on non-accrual.

The following summarizes the Company’s internal ratings of its loans held-for-investment by class of financing receivables and portfolio segments, which are the same, at June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015 (in thousands):

During the three months ended June 30, 2016, one loan was modified as troubled debt restructured loan within the previous 12 months and for which there was a payment default. There were no such defaults in the three months ended June 30, 2015. During the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, one loan was modified in each six month period as a troubled debt restructured loan within the previous 12 months and for which there was a payment default. A default for purposes of this disclosure is a troubled debt restructured loan in which the borrower is 90 days past due or more or results in the foreclosure and repossession of the applicable collateral. The loans with payment default are as follows (dollars in thousands):

As of June 30, 2016, the Company has no commitments to lend additional funds to loan customers whose terms have been modified in troubled debt restructurings.

Our subsidiary bank has established a line of credit with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB) to provide liquidity and meet pledging requirements for those customers eligible to have securities pledged to secure certain uninsured deposits. At June 30, 2016, $2,029,811,000 in loans held by our bank subsidiary were subject to blanket liens as security for this line of credit. At June 30, 2016, $210,000,000 were outstanding under this line of credit.

Note 6 – Borrowings

Borrowings at June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015 consisted of the following (dollars in thousands):

Securities sold under repurchase agreements are generally with significant customers of the Company that require short-term liquidity for their funds for which the Company pledges certain securities that have a fair value equal to at least the amount of the borrowings. The agreements mature daily and therefore the risk arising from a decline in the fair value of the collateral pledged is minimal. The securities pledged are mortgage-backed securities. These agreements do not include “right of set-off” provisions and therefore the Company does not offset such agreements for financial reporting purposes.

Note 7 - Income Taxes

Income tax expense was $8,366,000 for the second quarter of 2016 as compared to $8,080,000 for the same period in 2015. The Company’s effective tax rates on pretax income were 23.78% and 24.20% for the second quarters of 2016 and 2015, respectively. Income tax expense was $16,105,000 for the six months ended June 2016 as compared to $15,845,000 for the same period in 2015. The Company’s effective tax rates on pretax income were 23.47% and 24.32% for the six months ended June 2016 and 2015, respectively. The effective tax rates differ from the statutory federal tax rate of 35% primarily due to tax exempt interest income earned on certain investment securities and loans and the deductibility of dividends paid to our employee stock ownership plan.

Note 8 - Stock Option Plan and Restricted Stock Plan

The Company grants incentive stock options for a fixed number of shares with an exercise price equal to the fair value of the shares at the date of grant to employees. Through June 30, 2016, no options have been granted in 2016. On October 27, 2015, the Company granted 455,000 shares in incentive stock options at an exercise price of $33.89 to its employees. The Company recorded stock option expense totaling $220,000 and $182,000 for the three-month periods ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The Company recorded stock option expense totaling $441,000 and $360,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The additional disclosure requirements under authoritative accounting guidance have been omitted due to immateriality.

On April 28, 2015, shareholders of the Company approved a restricted stock plan for selected employees, officers, non-employee directors and consultants. On July 21, 2015, 7,070 shares were granted to the ten non-employee directors. Total value of these shares totaled $250,000 and was expensed over the period from grant date to April 26, 2016, the annual shareholders’ meeting at which these director’s term expired. On April 26, 2016, upon re-election of existing directors, 7,660 shares with a total value of $250,000 were granted to the ten non-employee directors and is being expensed over the period from grant day to April 25, 2017, the next scheduled annual shareholders’ meeting at which the current directors’ current term will expire. On October 27, 2015, the Company also granted 32,748 shares with a total value of $1,110,000 to certain officers that is being expensed over the vesting period of three years. The Company recorded restricted stock grant expense for directors and officers of $157,000 for the three month period ended June 30, 2016. The Company recorded restricted stock grant expense for directors and officers of $327,000 for the six month period ended June 30, 2016.

Note 9 - Pension Plan

The Company’s defined benefit pension plan was frozen effective January 1, 2004, whereby no new participants will be added to the plan and no additional years of service will accrue to participants, unless the pension plan is reinstated at a future date. The pension plan covered substantially all of the Company’s employees at the time. The benefits for each employee were based on years of service and a percentage of the employee’s qualifying compensation during the final years of employment. The Company’s funding policy was and is to contribute annually the amount necessary to satisfy the Internal Revenue Service’s funding standards. Contributions to the pension plan, prior to freezing the plan, were intended to provide not only for benefits attributed to service to date but also for those expected to be earned in the future. As a result of the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (the “Protection Act”), the Company will be required to contribute amounts in future years to fund any shortfalls. The Company has evaluated the provisions of the Protection Act as well as the Internal Revenue Service’s funding standards to develop a plan for funding in future years. The Company made a contribution totaling $500,000 in 2015 and had made no contributions through June 30, 2016.

Net periodic benefit costs totaling $82,000 and $74,000 were recorded for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Net periodic benefit costs totaling $165,000 and $149,000 were recorded for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Note 10 - Fair Value Disclosures

The authoritative accounting guidance for fair value measurements defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. A fair value measurement assumes that the transaction to sell the asset or transfer the liability occurs in the principal market for the asset or liability or, in the absence of a principal market, the most advantageous market for the asset or liability. The price in the principal (or most advantageous) market used to measure the fair value of the asset or liability shall not be adjusted for transaction costs. An orderly transaction is a transaction that assumes exposure to the market for a period prior to the measurement date to allow for marketing activities that are usual and customary for transactions involving such assets and liabilities; it is not a forced transaction. Market participants are buyers and sellers in the principal market that are (i) independent, (ii) knowledgeable, (iii) able to transact, and (iv) willing to transact.

The authoritative accounting guidance requires the use of valuation techniques that are consistent with the market approach, the income approach and/or the cost approach. The market approach uses prices and other relevant information generated by market transactions involving identical or comparable assets and liabilities. The income approach uses valuation techniques to convert future amounts, such as cash flows or earnings, to a single present amount on a discounted basis. The cost approach is based on the amount that currently would be required to replace the service capacity of an asset (replacement costs). Valuation techniques should be consistently applied. Inputs to valuation techniques refer to the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Inputs may be observable, meaning those that reflect the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from independent sources, or unobservable, meaning those that reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances. In that regard, the authoritative guidance establishes a fair value hierarchy for valuation inputs that gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. The fair value hierarchy is as follows:

 

    Level 1 Inputs – Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the reporting entity has the ability to access at the measurement date.

 

    Level 2 Inputs – Inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (for example, interest rates, volatilities, prepayment speeds, loss severities, credit risks and default rates) or inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.

 

    Level 3 Inputs – Significant unobservable inputs that reflect an entity’s own assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the assets or liabilities.

A description of the valuation methodologies used for assets and liabilities measured at fair value, as well as the general classification of such instruments pursuant to the valuation hierarchy, is set forth below.

In general, fair value is based upon quoted market prices, where available. If such quoted market prices are not available, fair value is based upon internally developed models that primarily use, as inputs, observable market-based parameters. Valuation adjustments may be made to ensure that financial instruments are recorded at fair value. While management believes the Company’s valuation methodologies are appropriate and consistent with other market participants, the use of different methodologies or assumptions to determine the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a different estimate of fair value at the reporting date.

Table of Contents

Securities classified as available-for-sale and trading are reported at fair value utilizing Level 1 and Level 2 inputs. For these securities, the Company obtains fair value measurements from an independent pricing service. The fair value measurements consider observable data that may include market spreads, cash flows, the United States Treasury yield curve, live trading levels, trade execution data, dealer quotes, market consensus prepayments speeds, credit information and the security’s terms and conditions, among other items.

There were no transfers between Level 2 and Level 3 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, and the year ended December 31, 2015.

The following table summarizes financial assets and financial liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015, respectively, segregated by the level of the valuation inputs within the fair value hierarchy utilized to measure fair value (dollars in thousands):

Certain financial assets and financial liabilities are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis, that is, the instruments are not measured at fair value on an ongoing basis but are subject to fair value adjustments in certain circumstances (for example, when there is evidence of impairment). Financial assets and financial liabilities measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis include the following at June 30, 2016:

Impaired Loans – Impaired loans are reported at the fair value of the underlying collateral if repayment is expected solely from the collateral. Collateral values are estimated using Level 2 inputs based on observable market data. At June 30, 2016, impaired loans with a carrying value of $38,904,000 were reduced by specific valuation reserves totaling $7,102,000 resulting in a net fair value of $31,802,000.

Loans Held-for-Sale – Loans held-for-sale are reported at the lower of cost or fair value. In determining whether the fair value of loans held-for-sale is less than cost when quoted market prices are not available, the Company considers investor commitments/contracts. These loans are considered Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. At June 30, 2016, the Company’s mortgage loans held-for-sale were recorded at cost as fair value exceeded cost.

Certain non-financial assets and non-financial liabilities measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis include other real estate owned, goodwill and other intangible assets and other non-financial long-lived assets. Non-financial assets measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis during the three months and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 include other real estate owned which, subsequent to their initial transfer to other real estate owned from loans, were re-measured at fair value through a write-down included in gain (loss) on sale of foreclosed assets. During the reported periods, all fair value measurements for foreclosed assets utilized Level 2 inputs based on observable market data, generally third-party appraisals, or Level 3 inputs based on customized discounting criteria. These appraisals are evaluated individually and discounted as necessary due to the age of the appraisal, lack of comparable sales, expected holding periods of property or special use type of the property. Such discounts vary by appraisal based on the above factors but generally range from 5% to 25% of the appraised value. Re-evaluation of other real estate owned is performed at least annually as required by regulatory guidelines or more often if particular circumstances arise. The following table presents other real estate owned that were re-measured subsequent to their initial transfer to other real estate owned (dollars in thousands):

The Company is required under current authoritative accounting guidance to disclose the estimated fair value of their financial instrument assets and liabilities including those subject to the requirements

discussed above. For the Company, as for most financial institutions, substantially all of its assets and liabilities are considered financial instruments. Many of the Company’s financial instruments, however, lack an available trading market as characterized by a willing buyer and willing seller engaging in an exchange transaction.

The estimated fair value amounts of financial instruments have been determined by the Company using available market information and appropriate valuation methodologies. However, considerable judgment is required to interpret data to develop the estimates of fair value. Accordingly, the estimates presented herein are not necessarily indicative of the amounts the Company could realize in a current market exchange. The use of different market assumptions and/or estimation methodologies may have a material effect on the estimated fair value amounts.

In addition, reasonable comparability between financial institutions may not be likely due to the wide range of permitted valuation techniques and numerous estimates that must be made given the absence of active secondary markets for many of the financial instruments. This lack of uniform valuation methodologies also introduces a greater degree of subjectivity to these estimated fair values.

Cash and due from banks, federal funds sold, interest-bearing deposits and time deposits in banks and accrued interest receivable and payable are liquid in nature and considered Levels 1 or 2 of the fair value hierarchy.

Financial instruments with stated maturities have been valued using a present value discounted cash flow with a discount rate approximating current market for similar assets and liabilities and are considered Levels 2 and 3 of the fair value hierarchy. Financial instrument liabilities with no stated maturities have an estimated fair value equal to both the amount payable on demand and the carrying value and are considered Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy.

The carrying value and the estimated fair value of the Company’s contractual off-balance-sheet unfunded lines of credit, loan commitments and letters of credit, which are generally priced at market at the time of funding, are not material.

Note 11 - Recently Issued Authoritative Accounting Guidance

Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-14, “Receivables – Troubled Debt Restructuring by Creditors.” ASU 2014-14 clarified that an in substance repossession or foreclosure occurs, and a creditor is considered to have received physical possession of residential real estate property collateralizing a consumer mortgage loan, upon either (1) the creditor obtaining legal title to the residential real estate property upon completion of a foreclosure or (2) the borrower conveying all interest in the residential real estate property to the creditor to satisfy that loan through completion of a deed in lieu of foreclosure or through a similar legal agreement. Additionally, the amendment requires interim and annual disclosure of both (1) the amount of foreclosed residential real estate property held by the creditor and (2) the recorded investment in consumer mortgage loans collateralized by residential real estate property that are in the process of foreclosure according to local requirements of the applicable jurisdiction. The new guidance was effective for the Company on January 1, 2015 and did not have a significant impact to the Company’s financial statements.

ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers.” ASU 2014-09 implements a comprehensive new revenue recognition standard that will supersede substantially all existing revenue recognition guidance. The new standard’s core principle is that a company will recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. In doing so, companies will need to use more judgment and make more estimates than under existing guidance. These may include

identifying performance obligations in the contract, estimating the amount of variable consideration to include in the transaction price and allocating the transaction price to each separate performance obligation. The new standard will be effective in the first quarter of 2018. The Company is continuing to evaluate the potential impact to the Company’s financial statements.

ASU 2014-11, “Transfers and Servicing.” ASU 2014-11 amended guidance related to repurchase-to-maturity transactions to require that repurchase-to-maturity transactions be accounted for as secured borrowings consistent with the accounting for other repurchase agreements. In addition, the amendment requires separate accounting for repurchase financings, which entails the transfer of a financial asset executed contemporaneously with a repurchase agreement with the same counterparty. The amendment requires entities to disclose certain information about transfers accounted for as sales in transactions that are economically similar to repurchase agreements. In addition, the amendment requires disclosures related to collateral, remaining contractual term and of the potential risks associated with repurchase agreements, securities lending transactions and repurchase-to-maturity transactions. The amendment was effective for the Company on January 1, 2015 and did not have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

ASU 2015-01, “Income Statement – Extraordinary and Unusual Items.” ASU 2015-01 eliminated from U.S. GAAP the concept of extraordinary items, which, among other things, required an entity to show the item separately in the income statement, net of tax, after income from continuing operations. The new guidance became effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2016, and did not have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

ASU 2015-16, “Business Combinations – Simplifying the Accounting Measurement Period Adjustments.” ASU 2015-16 amended business combination guidance to require that an acquirer recognize adjustments to provisional amounts that are identified during the measurement period in the reporting period in which the adjustment amounts are determined. The acquirer must record, in the same period’s financial statements, the effect of earnings on changes in depreciation, amortization, or other income effects, if any, as a result of the changes to the provisional amounts, calculated as if the accounting had been completed at the acquisition date. Additionally, the entity is required to present separately on the face of the income statement or disclose in the notes the portion of the amount recorded in current-period earnings by line item that would have been recorded in previous reporting periods if the adjustment to the provisional amounts had been recognized as of the acquisition date. The amended guidance became effective for the Company on January 1, 2016, and did not have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

ASU 2016-1, “No. 2016-01, Financial Instruments – Overall: Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities.” ASU 2016-1, among other things, (i) requires equity investments, with certain exceptions, to be measured at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income, (ii) simplifies the impairment assessment of equity investments without readily determinable fair values by requiring a qualitative assessment to identify impairment, (iii) eliminates the requirement for public business entities to disclose the methods and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost on the balance sheet, (iv) requires public business entities to use the exit price notion when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purposes, (v) requires an entity to present separately in other comprehensive income the portion of the total change in the fair value of a liability resulting from a change in the instrument-specific credit risk when the entity has elected to measure the liability at fair value in accordance with the fair value option for financial instruments, (vi) requires separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by measurement category and form of financial asset on the balance sheet or the accompanying notes to the financial statements and (vii) clarifies that an entity should evaluate the need for a valuation allowance on a deferred tax asset related to available-for-sale securities. ASU 2016-1 will be effective for us on January 1, 2018 and is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

ASU 2015-05, “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other – Internal-Use Software – Customer’s Accounting for Fees Paid in a Cloud Computing Arrangement.” ASU 2015-05 addresses accounting for fees paid by a customer in cloud computing arrangements such as (i) software as a service, (ii) platform as a service, (iii) infrastructure as a service and (iv) other similar hosting arrangements. ASU 2015-05 provides guidance to customers about whether a cloud computing arrangement includes a software license. If a cloud computing arrangement includes a software license, then the customer should account for the software license element of the arrangement consistent with the acquisition of other software licenses. If a cloud computing arrangement does not include a software license, the customer should account for the arrangement as a service contract. ASU 2015-05 became effective on January 1, 2016 and did not have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

ASU 2016-09, “Compensation – Stock Compensation: Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting.” ASU 2016-09 will amend current guidance such that all excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies related to share-based payment awards will be recognized as income tax expense or benefit in the income statement during the period in which they occur. Additionally, excess tax benefits will be classified along with other income tax cash flows as an operating activity rather than a financing activity. ASU 2016-09 also provides that any entity can make an entity-wide accounting policy election to either estimate the number of awards that are expected to vest, which is the current requirement, or account for forfeitures when they occur. ASU 2016-09 will be effective January 1, 2017 and is not expected to have a significant impact on our financial statements.

ASU 2016-02, “Leases.” ASU 2016-02 will amend current lease accounting to require lessees to recognize (i) a lease liability, which is a lessee’s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease, measured on a discounted basis, and (ii) a right-of-use asset, which is an asset that represents the lessee’s right to use, or control the use of, a specified asset for the lease term. ASU 2016-02 does not significantly change lease accounting requirements applicable to lessors; however, certain changes were made to align, where necessary, lessor accounting with the lessee accounting model. The amended guidance will be effective in the first quarter of 2019 and will require transition using a modified retrospective approach for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements. The Company is evaluating the potential impact of ASU 2016-02 on the Company’s financial statements.

ASU 2016-13, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses.” ASU 2016-13 implements a comprehensive change in estimating the allowances for loan losses from the current model of losses inherent in the loan portfolio to a current expected credit loss model that generally is expected to result in earlier recognition of allowances for losses. Additionally, purchase accounting rules have been modified as well as credit losses on held-to-maturity debt securities. ASU 2016-13 will be effective in the first quarter of 2020. While the Company expects that the implementation of ASU 2016-13 will increase their allowance for loan losses balance, the Company is evaluating the potential impact on the Company’s financial statements.

Note 12 – Acquisition and Asset Purchase

On April 1, 2015, we entered into an agreement and plan of reorganization to acquire FBC Bancshares, Inc. and its wholly owned bank subsidiary, First Bank, N.A., Conroe, Texas (“First Bank”). On July 31, 2015, the transaction was completed. Pursuant to the agreement, we issued 1,755,374 shares of the Company’s common stock in exchange for all of the outstanding shares of FBC Bancshares, Inc. At closing, FBC Bancshares, Inc. was merged into the Company and First Bank was merged into First Financial Bank, National Association, Abilene, Texas, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The primary purpose of the acquisition was to expand the Company’s market share along Interstate Highway 45 in southern Texas, north of Houston. Factors that contributed to a purchase price resulting in goodwill include First Bank’s historic record of earnings, strong local economic environment and opportunity for growth. The results of operations from this acquisition are included in the consolidated earnings of the Company commencing August 1, 2015.

The fair value of total loans acquired was $248,380,000 at acquisition compared to contractual amounts of $252,458,000. The fair value of purchased credit impaired loans at acquisition was $1,398,000 compared to contractual amounts of $1,704,000. Additional purchased credit impaired loan disclosures were omitted due to immateriality. All other acquired loans were considered performing loans.

First Bank had branches in Conroe, Magnolia, Montgomery, Tomball, Cut and Shoot and Huntsville, all located north of Houston, Texas. On February 26, 2016, the Company closed First Bank’s Huntsville location and consolidated the branch with the Company’s existing Huntsville location.

On April 8, 2015, the Company announced that it had entered into an asset purchase agreement with 4Trust Mortgage, Inc. for a cash purchase price of $1,900,000. The asset purchase was finalized on May 31, 2015, which we refer to herein as the “4Trust asset purchase.” The total asset purchase price exceeded the estimated fair value of assets purchased by approximately $1,750,000 and the Company recorded such excess as goodwill.

Introduction

As a financial holding company, we generate most of our revenue from interest on loans and investments, trust fees, and service charges. Our primary source of funding for our loans and investments are deposits held by our subsidiary, First Financial Bank, National Association, Abilene, Texas. Our largest expense is salaries and related employee benefits. We usually measure our performance by calculating our return on average assets, return on average equity, our regulatory leverage and risk based capital ratios and our efficiency ratio, which is calculated by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income on a tax equivalent basis and noninterest income.

The following discussion and analysis of operations and financial condition should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and accompanying footnotes included in Item 1 of this Form 10-Q as well as those included in the Company’s 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Critical Accounting Policies

We prepare consolidated financial statements based on GAAP and customary practices in the banking industry. These policies, in certain areas, require us to make significant estimates and assumptions.

We deem a policy critical if (1) the accounting estimate required us to make assumptions about matters that are highly uncertain at the time we make the accounting estimate; and (2) different estimates that reasonably could have been used in the current period, or changes in the accounting estimate that are reasonably likely to occur from period to period, would have a material impact on the financial statements.

We deem our most critical accounting policies to be (1) our allowance for loan losses and our provision for loan losses and (2) our valuation of securities. We have other significant accounting policies and continue to evaluate the materiality of their impact on our consolidated financial statements, but we believe these other policies either do not generally require us to make estimates and judgments that are difficult or subjective, or it is less likely they would have a material impact on our reported results for a given period. A discussion of (1) our allowance for loan losses and our provision for loan losses and (2) our valuation of securities is included in note 5 and note 4, respectively, to our notes to consolidated financial statements (unaudited) which begins on page 9.

Results of Operations

Performance Summary. Net earnings for the second quarter of 2016 were $26.81 million compared to $25.31 million for the same quarter in 2015, or a 5.94% increase.

Basic earnings per share for the second quarter of 2016 were $0.41 compared to $0.39 for the same quarter last year. The return on average assets was 1.65% for the second quarter of 2016, as compared to 1.67% for the second quarter of 2015. The return on average equity was 12.76% for the second quarter of 2016 as compared to 14.38% for the second quarter of 2015.

Net earnings for the six-month period ended June 30, 2016 were $52.51 million compared to $49.30 million for the same period in 2015, or a 6.49% increase.

Basic earnings per share for the first six months of 2016 were $0.80 compared to $0.77 for the same period in 2015, or a 3.90% increase. The return on average assets was 1.61% for the first six months of 2016, as compared to 1.66% for the same period in 2015. The return on average equity was 12.65% for the first six months of 2016, as compared to 14.19% a year ago.

Net Interest Income. Net interest income is the difference between interest income on earning assets and interest expense on liabilities incurred to fund those assets. Our earning assets consist primarily of loans and investment securities. Our liabilities to fund those assets consist primarily of noninterest-bearing and interest-bearing deposits.

Tax-equivalent net interest income was $62.72 million for the second quarter of 2016, as compared to $57.97 million for the same period last year. The increase in 2016 compared to 2015 was largely attributable to the increase in volume of interest earning assets due primarily to the First Bank acquisition. Average earning assets increased $407.24 million for the second quarter of 2016 over the same period in 2015. Average loans and tax exempt securities increased $341.06 million and $144.77 million, respectively, for the second quarter of 2016 over the same quarter of 2015. Average interest bearing liabilities increased $240.19 million for the second quarter of 2016, as compared to the same period in 2015. The yield on earning assets increased six basis points and the rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities increased three basis point for the second quarter of 2016 over the second quarter of 2015.

Tax-equivalent net interest income was $125.86 million for the first six months of 2016, as compared to $114.28 million for the same period last year. The increase in 2016 compared to 2015 was largely attributable to the increase in volume of interest earning assets due primarily to the First Bank acquisition. Average earning assets increased $482.66 million for the first six months of 2016 over the same period in 2015. Average loans and tax exempt securities increased $360.90 million and $190.30 million, respectively, for the first six months of 2016 over the same period of 2015. Average interest bearing liabilities increased $318.96 million for the first six months of 2016, as compared to the same period in 2015. The yield on earning assets increased six basis points and the rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities increased three basis points for the first six months of 2016 over the first six months of 2015.

Table 1 allocates the change in tax-equivalent net interest income between the amount of change attributable to volume and to rate.

(1) Computed on a tax-equivalent basis assuming a marginal tax rate of 35%.
(2) Non-accrual loans are included in loans.

The net interest margin for the second quarter of 2016 was 4.12%, an increase of five basis points from the same period in 2015. The net interest margin for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was 4.14%, a increase of five basis points from the same period in 2015. Although the Federal Reserve slightly increased rates in late 2015 and continues to consider future increases in rates in 2016 and future years, we expect interest rates to remain at lower levels which will continue the downward pressure on our net interest margin.

Noninterest Income. Noninterest income for the second quarter of 2016 was $21.44 million, an increase of $3.63 million compared to the same period in 2015. Service charges on deposits and ATM, interchange and credit card fees increased 9.52 percent and 7.25 percent, respectively, to $4.40 million and $5.84 million compared with $4.02 million and $5.45 million, respectively, in the same quarter last year primarily due to the First Bank acquisition and the continued growth in net new accounts and debit cards. Real estate mortgage fees increased 91.28 percent in the second quarter of 2016 to $4.01 million compared with $2.10 million in the same quarter a year ago, primarily resulting from additional loan origination production from the 4Trust asset purchase. Trust fees decreased $14 thousand to $4.73 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared with $4.74 million in the same quarter last year due primarily to a $113 thousand decline in trust oil and gas fee income when compared to the same quarter a year ago. This decline was mostly offset by an increase in the fair value of trust assets managed to $4.11 billion from $3.97 billion a year ago. Gain on sale of available-for-sale securities totaled $912 thousand in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $239 thousand in the same period in 2015.

Noninterest income for the six-month period ended June 30, 2016 was $41.26 million, an increase of $7.55 million compared to the same period in 2015. Service charges on deposits and ATM, interchange and credit card fees increased 13.21 percent and 10.62 percent, respectively, to $8.82 million and $11.52 million compared with $7.79 million and $10.42 million, respectively, in the same period last year due primarily to the First Bank acquisition and the continued growth in net new accounts and debit cards. Real estate mortgage fees increased 99.80 percent in the second quarter of 2016 to $7.15 million compared

with $3.58 million in the same period a year ago, primarily resulting from additional loan origination production from the 4Trust asset purchase. Trust fees decreased $92 thousand to $9.38 million in the first six months of 2016 compared with $9.47 million in the same period in 2015 year due primarily to a $372 thousand decline in trust oil and gas fee income when compared to the same quarter a year ago. This decline was mostly offset by an increase in the fair value of trust assets managed to $4.11 billion from $3.97 billion a year ago. Gain on sale of available-for-sale securities totaled $914 thousand in the first six months of 2016 compared to $244 thousand in the same period in 2015.

ATM and interchange fees are charges that merchants pay to us and other card-issuing banks for processing electronic payment transactions. ATM and interchange fees consist of income from debit card usage, point of sale income for debit card transactions and ATM service fees.

Federal Reserve rules applicable to financial institutions that have assets of $10 billion or more provide that the maximum permissible interchange fee for an electronic debit transaction is the sum of 21 cents per transaction and 5 basis points multiplied by the value of the transaction. While we currently have assets under $10 billion, we are monitoring the effect of this reduction in per transaction fee income as we approach the $10 billion asset level.

Noninterest Expense. Total noninterest expense for the second quarter of 2016 was $40.76 million, an increase of $5.55 million compared to the same period in 2015. An important measure in determining whether a financial institution effectively manages noninterest expense is the efficiency ratio, which is calculated by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income on a tax-equivalent basis and noninterest income. Lower ratios indicate better efficiency since more income is generated with a lower noninterest expense total. Our efficiency ratio for the second quarter of 2016 was 48.43%, compared to 46.46% from the same period in 2015.

Salaries and employee benefits for the second quarter of 2016 totaled $22.15 million, an increase of $2.97 million compared to the same period in 2015. The increase was primarily driven by the addition of 4Trust and First Bank employees and annual merit pay increases. In addition, our healthcare claims increased in the second quarter of 2016 over the same quarter in 2015, which was offset by lower profit sharing expense.

All other categories of noninterest expense for the second quarter of 2016 totaled $18.61 million, an increase of $2.58 million compared to the same quarter in 2015. This increase primarily resulted from increases in equipment, net occupancy, telephone and professional fee expenses also largely driven by the 4Trust asset purchase and First Bank acquisition.

Total noninterest expense for the first six months of 2016 was $81.84 million compared to $69.15 million in the same period of 2015. Our efficiency ratio for the first six months of 2016 was 48.97%, compared to 46.73% from the same period in 2015.

Salaries and employee benefits for the first six months of 2016 totaled $44.74 million, an increase of $7.30 million compared to the same period in 2015. The increase was primarily driven by the addition of 4Trust and First Bank employees and annual pay increases. In addition, our healthcare claims increased in the first six months of 2016 over the same period in 2015, which was offset by lower profit sharing expense.

All other categories of noninterest expense for the first six months of 2016 totaled $37.10 million, an increase of approximately $5.39 million, as compared to the same period in 2015. The increase primarily resulted from increases in equipment, net occupancy, telephone and professional fee expense, also largely driven by the 4Trust asset purchase and First Bank acquisition.

Balance Sheet Review

Loans. Our portfolio is comprised of loans made to businesses, professionals, individuals, and farm and ranch operations located in the primary trade areas served by our subsidiary bank. Real estate loans represent loans primarily for 1-4 family residences and commercial real estate, which are primarily owner-occupied. The structure of loans in the real estate mortgage area generally provides re-pricing intervals to minimize the interest rate risk inherent in long-term fixed rate loans. As of June 30, 2016, total loans held for investment were $3.28 billion, a decrease of $33.40 million, as compared to December 31, 2015 balances. As compared to December 31, 2015, commercial loans decreased $34.50 million, agricultural loans decreased $21.54 million, real estate loans increased $18.16 million, and consumer loans increased $4.49 million. Loans averaged $3.30 billion during the second quarter of 2016, an increase of $341.06 million from the prior year second quarter average balances. Loans averaged $3.30 billion during the six-month period ended June 30, 2016, an increase of $360.90 million from the prior year six-month average balances.

At June 30, 2016, our real estate loans represent approximately 65.61% of our loan portfolio and are comprised of (i) 1-4 family residence loans of 44.75%, (ii) commercial real estate loans of 23.94%, generally owner occupied, (iii) other loans, which includes ranches, hospitals and universities, of 16.65%, (iv) residential development and construction loans of 9.53%, which includes our custom and speculation home construction loans and (v) commercial development and construction loans of 5.13%.

Loans held for sale, consisting of secondary market mortgage loans, totaled $25.73 million, $25.54 million, and $33.54 million at June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015, respectively, which are valued using the lower of cost or market method.

Asset Quality. Our loan portfolio is subject to periodic reviews by our centralized independent loan review group as well as periodic examinations by bank regulatory agencies. Loans are placed on nonaccrual status when, in the judgment of management, the collectability of principal or interest under the original terms becomes doubtful. Nonaccrual, past due 90 days or more and still accruing, and restructured loans plus foreclosed assets were $40.39 million at June 30, 2016, as compared to $18.14 million at June 30, 2015 and $29.77 million at December 31, 2015. As a percent of loans and foreclosed assets, these assets were 1.22% at June 30, 2016, as compared to 0.61% at June 30, 2015 and 0.89% at December 31, 2015. As a percent of total assets, these assets were 0.61% at June 30, 2016, as compared to 0.30% at June 30, 2015 and 0.45% at December 31, 2015. The increase in the Company’s nonperforming assets as a percentage of loans and foreclosed assets ratio at June 30, 2016 primarily resulted from the addition of one commercial loan to the Company’s quarter-end nonaccrual balances. We believe the level of these assets to be manageable and are not aware of any material classified credits not properly disclosed as nonperforming at June 30, 2016.

Supplemental Oil and Gas Information. As of June 30, 2016, the Company’s direct exposure to the oil and gas industry remained at approximately 2.65% of gross loans, or $87.86 million, down slightly from

December 31, 2015 year-end levels, and consisted (based on collateral supporting the loan) of (i) development and production loans of 4.43%, (ii) oil and gas field servicing loans of 14.91%, (iii) real estate loans of 37.30%, (iv) accounts receivable and inventory of 18.95% and (v) other of 24.41%. These loans have experienced increased stress due to continued depressed oil and gas prices. The Company has instituted additional monitoring procedures for these loans and has classified, downgraded and charged-off loans as appropriate. The following oil and gas information is as of and for the quarters ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015:

* Includes $1.65 million, $1.12 million and $2.18 million of purchased credit impaired loans as of June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015, respectively.
** Troubled debt restructured loans of $7.45 million, $6.94 million and $6.11 million, whose interest collection, after considering economic and business conditions and collection efforts, is doubtful are included in non-accrual loans at June 30, 2016 and 2015, and December 31, 2015, respectively.

We record interest payments received on non-accrual loans as reductions of principal. Prior to the loans being placed on non-accrual, we recognized interest income on impaired loans as of December 31, 2015 of approximately $780 thousand during the year ended December 31, 2015. If interest on these impaired loans had been recognized on a full accrual basis during the year ended December 31, 2015, such income would have approximated $2.74 million.

Provision and Allowance for Loan Losses. The allowance for loan losses is the amount we determine as of a specific date to be appropriate to absorb probable losses on existing loans in which full collectability is unlikely based on our review and evaluation of the loan portfolio. For a discussion of our methodology, see note 5 to our notes to the consolidated financial statements (unaudited). The provision for loan losses was $2.06 million for the second quarter of 2016, as compared to $1.55 million for the second quarter of 2015. The provision for loan losses was $4.39 million for the six-month period ended

June 30, 2016, as compared to $2.84 million for the same period in 2015. The continued provision for loan losses in 2016 and 2015 reflects the continued levels of nonperforming and classified assets, gross charge-offs, as well as the economic effects related to the oil and gas industry. The Company’s direct exposure to the oil and gas industry was approximately 2.65% of gross loans at June 30, 2016, down slightly from December 31, 2015 year-end levels. As a percent of average loans, net loan charge-offs were 0.13% for the second quarter of 2016, as compared to 0.05% for the second quarter of 2015. As a percent of average loans, net loan charge-offs were 0.07% for the first six months of 2016, as compared to 0.05% for the first six months of 2015. The allowance for loan losses as a percent of loans was 1.36% as of June 30, 2016, as compared to 1.31% as of June 30, 2015 and 1.25% as of December 31, 2015. Included in Table 7 is further analysis of our allowance for loan losses.

At June 30, 2016, securities with a fair value of $2.80 billion were classified as securities available-for-sale and securities with an amortized cost of $137 thousand were classified as securities held-to-maturity. As compared to December 31, 2015, the available-for-sale portfolio at June 30, 2016 reflected (i) a decrease of $26.20 million in obligations of U.S. government sponsored enterprises and agencies, (ii) an increase of $65.19 million in obligations of states and political subdivisions, (iii) a decrease of $14.55 million in corporate bonds and other, (iv) an increase of $37.00 million in mortgage-backed securities and (v) an increase of $16 thousand in U.S. Treasury securities. Our mortgage related securities are backed by GNMA, FNMA or FHLMC or are collateralized by securities backed by these agencies.
