National Law Journal is a reader survey of the top solutions
providers spanning many areas that nationally serve the legal industry.

"Our client base consists of many types of commercial clients, including
professional services organizations of which law firms are a large part. The
National Law Journal reader ranking citing Signature Bank as a top

"will," would," "plan," "estimate" or other similar expressions. As you
consider forward-looking statements, you should understand that these
statements are not guarantees of performance or results. They involve
risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to
differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements and can
change as a result of many possible events or factors, not all of which
are known to us or in our control. These factors include but are not
limited to: (i) prevailing economic conditions; (ii) changes in interest

materially affect origination levels and gain on sale results in our
business, as well as other aspects of our financial performance,

Governors of the Federal Reserve System; (v) changes in the banking and
other financial services regulatory environment and (vi) competition for
