Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On October 28, 2011, Encore Bancshares, Inc. publicly disseminated a press release announcing its financial results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2011. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

In addition to financial results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the press release also contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with GAAP. Specifically, Encore reviews tangible book value per share, return on average tangible common equity and the tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Encore also reviews its net interest income, net interest spread and net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis, which is standard practice in the banking industry. Encore's management believes that the inclusion in the press release of these non-GAAP financial measures, together with the accompanying reconciliations, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting Encore's business and allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to management, the entire financial services sector, bank stock analysts and bank regulators.

As provided in General Instruction B.2 to Form 8-K, the information furnished in Item 2.02 and Exhibit 99.1 of this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and such information shall not be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
