HOUSTON, July 26, 2018. Allegiance Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: ABTX) ("Allegiance"), the holding company of Allegiance Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $7.6 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.55 for the second quarter 2018 compared to $5.4 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.40 for the second quarter 2017. The second quarter 2018 results include $1.1 million and $625 thousand of core system conversion and merger related expenses, respectively. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $15.3 million, or $1.12 per diluted share, compared to $11.4 million, or $0.85 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

"This quarter was an exciting one for us as we further executed our growth strategies. We generated continued organic loan and deposit growth, successfully completed our core technology conversion and advanced our acquisition strategy by announcing a transaction with Post Oak Bancshares, Inc. headquartered in Houston, Texas," said George Martinez, Allegiance's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Allegiance and Post Oak share the same tradition of customer, employee and community bank focus and we continue to anticipate that the acquisition will close in the fourth quarter of 2018. We are excited about this partnership and the opportunities that will further enhance our value as Houston's largest community bank," commented Martinez.

"I would like to thank our outstanding team of dedicated employees for a remarkable job well done as we effectively enhanced our core system during the quarter. Our employees continue to ensure an outstanding customer experience every day to help our bank grow and innovate while working diligently to deliver great results. We believe that this quarter's results reflect our commitment to our customers and the enhancement of shareholder value," concluded Martinez.

Second Quarter 2018 Results

Net interest income before provision for loan losses in the second quarter 2018 increased $2.7 million, or 10.8%, to $27.8 million from $25.1 million for the second quarter 2017 primarily due to organic loan growth partially offset by interest expense on the subordinated debt that was issued in December 2017. Net interest income before provision for loan losses in the second quarter 2018 increased slightly from $26.9 million in the first quarter 2018. The net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis decreased eight basis points to 4.21% for the second quarter 2018 from 4.29% for the second quarter 2017 and increased one basis point from 4.20% for the first quarter 2018. The decrease from the prior year is primarily due to the increase in interest expense on interest-bearing liabilities driven in part by the subordinated debt issuance in December 2017.

Noninterest income for the second quarter 2018 was $1.8 million, an increase of $328 thousand, or 22.2%, compared to $1.5 million for the second quarter 2017 and increased $159 thousand compared to $1.6 million for the first quarter 2018.
