1st Source Corporation (NASDAQ:SRCE), parent company of 1st Source
Bank, today reported a record high net income of $21.96 million for the
second quarter of 2018, an improvement of 31.77% compared to $16.67
million reported in the second quarter a year ago, bringing the 2018
year-to-date net income to $41.08 million compared to $32.88 million in
2017, an increase of 24.96%. Income before taxes was $27.50 million
compared to $26.15 million in the second quarter of 2017 and $52.49
million for the first six months of 2018 compared to $51.07 million for
the same period in 2017. The year-to-date pretax income comparison was
positively impacted by increased net interest income of $14.11 million
primarily due to rising lending rates, higher average loan and lease
balances, and recognition of a $0.62 million unaccreted purchase loan
discount and $0.41 million prepayment penalty on two separate early loan
payoffs. These positives were offset by a $4.87 million increase in the
provision for loan and lease losses to support loan and lease growth
along with additional specific reserves on nonaccrual loans and a $9.21
million rise in noninterest expense. Non-recurring 2018 costs were
approximately $2.40 million.

Diluted net income per common share for the second quarter of 2018 was a
record high $0.84, versus $0.64 in the second quarter of 2017. Diluted
net income per common share for the first half of 2018 was $1.57
compared to $1.26 earned a year earlier.

At its July 2018 meeting, the Board of Directors approved a cash
dividend of $0.25 per common share, up 31.58% from the $0.19 per common
share declared a year ago, and up 4.17% from the $0.24 per common share
in the prior quarter. The cash dividend is payable to shareholders of
record on August 6, 2018 and will be paid on August 15, 2018.

According to Christopher J. Murphy III, Chairman, "We are pleased with
our record net income in the second quarter as 1st Source Corporation
continues to experience healthy growth in loans and leases and deposits.
Credit quality remains stable with some deterioration in the
nonperforming loan ratio but with year-to-date net charge-offs of only
$479,000 or 0.02% of average loans and leases. Average loans and leases
were up a solid 10.73% for the quarter, compared to the same period a
year ago. Average deposits were also up with a strong increase of 11.37%
from this time last year. Net interest income has increased 15.94% from
the second quarter 2017, and noninterest income increased 3.68% while
noninterest expense growth increased by 11.61% over the same quarter in
2017."

"We have had a busy summer with renovations in the South Bend region. In
May, we celebrated the completion of our Granger Martin's banking center
remodel, leading the way to bring side-by-side banking to the S.R. 23
corridor, in the Mishawaka-Granger area. In August, we will complete the
remodels for our BankMart and Granger banking centers. Also coming in
August, we will open a banking center on the campus of Indiana
University South Bend - subject to final regulatory approval. With many
of our own colleagues achieving a diploma or attending classes at the
University, it is an outstanding partner for us. This expansion will
help build upon our already strong relationship with the University and
underscores our commitment to relationship banking, distinctive
convenience, and community partnerships."

"We are pleased to announce that Forbes has identified 1st Source
Bank as the top ranked bank headquartered in Indiana. Forbes
recently conducted a survey to rank the best banks and credit unions in
every state. Banks and credit unions were rated by more than 25,000

Average loans and leases of $4.77 billion increased $462.09 million, up
10.73% in the second quarter of 2018 from the year ago quarter and have
increased $181.58 million, up 3.96% from the first quarter. Year-to-date
average loans and leases of $4.68 billion increased $431.99 million, up
10.17% from the first six months of 2017.

Deposits

Average deposits of $4.96 billion grew $506.50 million, up 11.37% for
the quarter ended June 30, 2018 from the year ago quarter and have
increased $253.03 million, up 5.37% compared to the first quarter.
Average deposits for the first six months of 2018 were $4.84 billion, an
increase of $458.26 million, up 10.47% from the same period a year ago.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Second quarter 2018 net interest income of $53.17 million increased
$7.31 million, up 15.94% from the second quarter a year ago and
increased $2.64 million, up 5.22% from the first quarter.

For the first six months of 2018, tax-equivalent net interest income was
$104.12 million, an increase of $13.61 million, up 15.04% compared to
the same period a year ago.

Second quarter 2018 net interest margin was 3.69%, an improvement of 16
basis points from the 3.53% for the same period in 2017 and remained
stable with the first quarter. Second quarter 2018 net interest margin
on a fully tax-equivalent basis was 3.71%, an increase of 14 basis
points from the 3.57% for the same period in 2017 and also remained
stable with the first quarter.

Net interest margin for the first six months of 2018 was 3.69%, an
increase of 18 basis points from the 3.51% for the same period in 2017.
Net interest margin on a fully tax-equivalent basis for the first six
months of 2018 was 3.71%, an increase of 16 basis points from the 3.55%
for the same period in 2017.

Noninterest Income

Second quarter 2018 noninterest income of $25.02 million increased $0.89
million, up 3.68% from the second quarter a year ago and increased $1.22
million, up 5.11% from the first quarter.

For the first six months of 2018, noninterest income was $48.83 million,
an increase of $1.39 million, up 2.92% compared to the same period a
year ago.

The growth in noninterest income during 2018 compared to a year ago was
mainly due to higher equipment rental income resulting from an increase
in the average lease portfolio, improved debit card income due to growth
in those transactions, higher customer swap fees, improved insurance
commissions due to new business, and increased trust and wealth advisory
fees, which were offset by reduced gains on the sale of
available-for-sale equity securities and lower mortgage banking income.

The increase in noninterest income from the first quarter of 2018 was
primarily the result of seasonal trust and wealth advisory tax fees,
increased equipment rental income resulting from an increase in the
average lease portfolio, and further improvement in debit card income
offset by lower insurance contingent commissions and reduced partnership
investment gains.

Noninterest Expense

Second quarter 2018 noninterest expense of $45.88 million increased
$4.77 million or 11.61% from the second quarter a year ago and was flat
from the prior quarter.

For the first six months of 2018, noninterest expense was $91.43
million, an increase of $9.21 million, or 11.20% compared to the same
period a year ago.

Excluding depreciation on leased equipment, noninterest expenses were up
12.59% and 11.49% for the second quarter and first six months of 2018,
respectively.

The increase in noninterest expense from the same periods a year ago was
primarily due to higher salaries as a result of normal merit increases
and incentive compensation, increased group insurance costs, a rise in
furniture and equipment expense due to increased software maintenance
costs and computer processing charges, higher depreciation on leased
equipment as the lease portfolio grew and higher valuation adjustments
on repossessed assets. In addition, non-recurring 2018 costs were
approximately $2.40 million due to consulting fees for a customer
relationship management project, a regulatory compliance project, and
information technology projects of $1.20 million, repossessed asset
valuation adjustments of $0.90 million, and trust losses of $0.30
million.

Noninterest expense was relatively flat from the first quarter of 2018.
Increased group insurance costs were offset by reduced valuation
adjustments on repossessed assets as the primary factors.

Credit

The reserve for loan and lease losses as of June 30, 2018 was 2.13% of
total loans and leases compared to 2.10% at March 31, 2018 and June 30,
2017. Net charge-offs of $0.14 million were recorded for the second
quarter of 2018 compared with net charge-offs of $0.94 million in the
same quarter a year ago and down from the $0.34 million of net
charge-offs in the first quarter. Year-to-date net charge-offs of $0.48
million have been recorded in 2018, compared to net charge-offs of $0.37
million for the first half of 2017.

The provision for loan and lease losses was $4.82 million for the second
quarter and $8.60 million for the first six months of 2018, an increase
of $2.08 million and $4.87 million, respectively, compared with the same
periods in 2017.

The ratio of nonperforming assets to loans and leases was 0.89% as of
June 30, 2018, compared to 0.66% on June 30, 2017 and 0.74% on March 31,
2018.

Capital

As of June 30, 2018, the common equity-to-assets ratio was 11.71%,
compared to 11.99% at March 31, 2018 and 12.29% a year ago. The tangible
common equity-to-tangible assets ratio was 10.52% at June 30, 2018 and
10.75% at March 31, 2018 compared to 10.98% a year earlier. The Common
Equity Tier 1 ratio, calculated under banking regulatory guidelines, was
12.15% at June 30, 2018 compared to 12.22% at March 31, 2018 and 12.43%
a year ago.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The accounting and reporting policies of 1st Source conform to generally
accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States and
prevailing practices in the banking industry. However, certain non-GAAP
performance measures are used by management to evaluate and measure the
Company's performance. Although these non-GAAP financial measures are
frequently used by investors to evaluate a financial institution, they
have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in
isolation, or as a substitute for analyses of results as reported under
GAAP. These include taxable-equivalent net interest income (including
its individual components), net interest margin (including its
individual components), the efficiency ratio, tangible common
equity-to-tangible assets ratio and tangible book value per common
share. Management believes that these measures provide users of the
Company's financial information a more meaningful view of the
performance of the interest-earning assets and interest-bearing
liabilities and of the Company's operating efficiency. Other financial
holding companies may define or calculate these measures differently.

Management reviews yields on certain asset categories and the net
interest margin of the Company and its banking subsidiaries on a fully
taxable-equivalent ("FTE") basis. In this non-GAAP presentation, net
interest income is adjusted to reflect tax-exempt interest income on an
equivalent before-tax basis. This measure ensures comparability of net
interest income arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources. Net
interest income on a FTE basis is also used in the calculation of the
Company's efficiency ratio. The efficiency ratio, which is calculated by
dividing non-interest expense by total taxable-equivalent net revenue
(less securities gains or losses and lease depreciation), measures how
much it costs to produce one dollar of revenue. Securities gains or
losses and lease depreciation are excluded from this calculation to
better match revenue from daily operations to operational expenses.
Management considers the tangible common equity-to-tangible assets ratio
and tangible book value per common share as useful measurements of the
Company's equity.

See the table marked "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for
a reconciliation of certain non-GAAP financial measures used by the
Company with their most closely related GAAP measures.
