January 2012 E-News Bulletin

Welcome to the Franklin Financial Network
January 2012 Market Update!

Dear Friends,
January is always a great time to review the previous year but also to take a peak ahead at the year to come. I am very pleased to report that Franklin Synergy ended 2011 with over $460 million in assets; the fourth quarter of 2011 was our twelfth consecutive profitable quarter and the most profitable quarter in our bank’s short history. Our capital position is very strong and our loan and deposit growth have been solid. We welcomed many new customers to our bank in 2011 and were fortunate to retain the loyalty and patronage of customers who have banked with us for many years.
Franklin Synergy Investment Management, established in 2011, is off to a great start. David McDaniel and his team focus on financial planning including tax efficiency, asset protection and retirement income. In these uncertain economic times, they offer our customers the very best financial advice.
The new year of 2012 brings a fresh development for us in Brentwood; our location is now a full service branch. In addition, the drive through is now open for your convenience. Please stop by and meet Barbie Holbrook, our new Customer Service Representative, and Saundra Gregory, our new Head Teller. These new additions in Brentwood join Kay Waller, Carolyn Swearingen, Debbie Marlin, and Stephen Roadman as the local banking team committed to meeting your unique banking needs.
Looking ahead, we are excited to announce our new Franklin Synergy Bank website, planned to be operational by the end of January. Along with an updated look and easier navigation, we’ve improved our website’s search capabilities. Also new is a quick connection to our social media to help you stay current with everything happening at your bank.
We are very optimistic about our future and about 2012, for our bank and our community. Franklin Synergy Bank is in growth mode and we see great opportunities ahead. We are both proud and grateful that you have chosen the bankers at Franklin Synergy to be your bankers. We never forget that you are the reason we are in business.
On behalf of our staff and Board of Directors, I would like to wish you a healthy and prosperous 2012. Thank you for your support and your loyalty.
Happy New Year!
Richard Herrington
