North Georgia of Atlantic Capital Bank, N.A., a wholly-owned subsidiary
of Atlantic Capital Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ:ACBI) (collectively,
"Atlantic Capital").

After assuming $598 million in deposits and $385 million in loans with
the acquisition, FirstBank, the third-largest Tennessee-headquartered
bank, has approximately $5.7 billion in assets, $4.1 billion in loans
held for investment and $4.8 billion in deposits on a pro forma basis as

across its footprint and pro forma ranks 5th in Chattanooga, 6th
in Knoxville and 6th in Tennessee in deposit market share,

The acquired Atlantic Capital branches are now fully operational and
have either been rebranded as FirstBank branches or merged into existing
FirstBank locations. Atlantic Capital customer accounts have now been
fully converted to FirstBank accounts.

"This is an outstanding addition in these dynamic markets that
strengthens our position as Tennessee's premier community bank,"
remarked Christopher T. Holmes, President and Chief Executive Officer of
FB Financial. "We are thrilled to welcome Atlantic Capital's customers
and associates to the FirstBank family and look forward to serving you.
We appreciate the efforts that our friends at Atlantic Capital have made
throughout this process, and I expect the integration to be a smooth one
as we focus on continuing to deliver excellent customer service."
