MidWestOne Financial Group, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)

1.    Principles of Consolidation and Presentation
MidWestOne Financial Group, Inc. (the “Company,” which is also referred to herein as “we,” “our” or “us”) is an Iowa corporation incorporated in 1983, a bank holding company under the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956 and a financial holding company under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999. Our principal executive offices are located at 102 South Clinton Street, Iowa City, Iowa 52240.
On May 1, 2015, the Company completed its merger with Central Bancshares, Inc. (“Central”), pursuant to which Central was merged with and into the Company. In connection with the merger, Central Bank, a Minnesota-chartered commercial bank and wholly-owned subsidiary of Central, became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. On April 2, 2016, Central Bank merged with and into MidWestOne Bank.
The Company issued 2,723,083 shares of common stock and paid $64.0 million in cash, for total consideration of $141.9 million, in connection with the holding company merger. The results of operations acquired from Central have been included in the Company’s results of operations for the time period since the date of acquisition.
The Company owns all of the common stock of MidWestOne Bank, an Iowa state non-member bank chartered in 1934 with its main office in Iowa City, Iowa, and prior to the bank merger, all of the common stock of Central Bank, a Minnesota state non-member bank chartered in 1988 with its main office in Golden Valley, Minnesota, and all of the common stock of MidWestOne Insurance Services, Inc., Oskaloosa, Iowa. We operate primarily through our bank subsidiaries, MidWestOne Bank and, prior to the bank merger, Central Bank, and MidWestOne Insurance Services, Inc., our wholly-owned subsidiary that operates an insurance agency business through six offices located in central and east-central Iowa.
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and, therefore, do not include all the information and notes necessary for complete financial statements in conformity with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). The information in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q is written with the presumption that the users of the interim financial statements have read or have access to the most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K of the Company, which contains the latest audited financial statements and notes thereto, together with Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations as of December 31, 2015 and for the year then ended. Management believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. In the opinion of management, the accompanying consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring accruals) necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as of March 31, 2016, and the results of operations and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect: (1) the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, (2) the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and (3) the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. These estimates are based on information available to management at the time the estimates are made. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The results for the three months ended March 31, 2016 may not be indicative of results for the year ending December 31, 2016, or for any other period.
All significant accounting policies followed in the preparation of the quarterly financial statements are disclosed in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015. In the consolidated statements of cash flows, cash and cash equivalents include cash and due from banks, interest-bearing deposits in banks, and federal funds sold.
Certain reclassifications have been made to prior periods’ consolidated financial statements to present them on a basis comparable with the current period’s consolidated financial statements.

2.    Business Combination
On May 1, 2015, the Company acquired all of the voting equity interests of Central, a bank holding company and the parent company of Central Bank, a commercial bank headquartered in Golden Valley, Minnesota, through the merger of Central with and into the Company. Among other things, this transaction provided the Company with the opportunity to expand its business into new markets and grow the size of the business. At the effective time of the merger, each share of common stock of Central converted into a pro rata portion of (1) 2,723,083 shares of common stock of the Company, and (2) $64.0 million in cash.

6


This business combination was accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting. Accordingly, the results of operations of the acquired company have been included in the Company’s results of operations since the date of acquisition. Under this method of accounting, assets and liabilities acquired are recorded at their estimated fair values. The excess cost over fair value of net assets acquired is recorded as goodwill. As the consideration paid for Central exceeded the net assets acquired, goodwill of $64.7 million has been recorded on the acquisition. Goodwill recorded in this transaction, which reflects the entry into the geographically new markets served by Central, has been allocated to our Central Bank segment. Goodwill recorded in the transaction is not tax deductible. The amounts recognized for the business combination in the financial statements have been determined to be final as of March 31, 2016.
Estimated fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the Central transaction, as of the closing date of the transaction, were as follows:

Purchased loans acquired in a business combination are recorded and initially measured at their estimated fair value as of the acquisition date. Credit discounts are included in the determination of fair value. An allowance for loan losses is not carried over. These purchased loans are segregated into two types: purchased credit impaired loans and purchased non-credit impaired loans without evidence of significant credit deterioration.
Purchased credit impaired loans are accounted for in accordance with ASC 310-30 “Loans and Debt Securities Acquired with Deteriorated Credit Quality” as they display significant credit deterioration since origination and it is probable, as of the acquisition date, that the Company will be unable to collect all contractually required payments from the borrower.
Purchased non-credit impaired loans are accounted for in accordance with ASC 310-20 “Nonrefundable Fees and Other Costs” as these loans do not have evidence of significant credit deterioration since origination and it is probable all contractually required payments will be received from the borrower.
For purchased non-credit impaired loans, the difference between the estimated fair value of the loans (computed on a loan-by-loan basis) and the principal outstanding is accreted over the remaining life of the loans.

7


For purchased credit impaired loans the difference between contractually required payments at acquisition and the cash flows expected to be collected is referred to as the non-accretable difference. Further, any excess of cash flows expected at acquisition over the estimated fair value is referred to as the accretable yield and is recognized into interest income over the expected remaining life of the loan if the timing and amount of the future cash flows are reasonably estimable. Subsequent to the purchase date, increases in cash flows over those expected at the purchase date are recognized as interest income prospectively. The present value of any decreases in expected cash flows after the purchase date is recognized by recording an allowance for credit losses and a provision for loan losses.

(1) Included in the accretable discount for purchased non-credit impaired loans is approximately $10.4 million of estimated undiscounted principal losses.
Disclosures required by ASC 805-20-50-1(a) concerning the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the ”FDIC”) indemnification assets have not been included due to the immateriality of the amount involved. See Note 6. “Loans Receivable and the Allowance for Loan Losses” to our consolidated financial statements for additional information related to the FDIC indemnification asset.
ASC 805-30-30-7 requires that the consideration transfered in a business combination should be measured at fair value. Since the common shares issued as part of the consideration of the merger included a restriction on their sale, pledge or other disposition, an illiquidity discount has been assigned to the shares based upon the volatility of the underlying shares’ daily returns and the period of restriction.
The Company recorded $2.2 million and $0.5 million in pre-tax merger-related expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, including professional and legal fees of $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively, to directly consummate the bank merger and the holding company merger, respectively. These amounts are included in professional fees in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations. The remainder of merger-related expenses primarily relate to retention and severance compensation costs in the amount of $0.3 million and $0.3 million, for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, which are included in salaries and employee benefits in the consolidated statements of operations, and $1.8 million of data processing service contract termination costs for the three months ended March 31, 2016, which are included in data processing expense.
During the measurement period, specifically the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company recognized adjustments to the provisional amounts reported at December 31, 2015, which reflect new information that existed as of May 1, 2015 that, if known, would have affected the measurement of the amounts recognized as of that date. In its interim financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company adjusted the provisional amounts for deferred taxes. The results of these adjustments are reflected in the $0.1 million increase to goodwill during the quarter ended March 31, 2016. The final adjustments had no impact on earnings, and in accordance with ASU 2015-16 were recorded during the three months ending March 31, 2016.

The following table provides the unaudited pro forma information for the results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2015, as if the acquisition had occurred January 1, 2015. The pro forma results combine the historical results of Central into the Company’s consolidated statement of income including the impact of certain purchase accounting adjustments, including loan discount accretion, investment securities discount accretion, intangible assets amortization, deposit premium accretion and borrowing discount amortization. The pro forma results have been prepared for comparative purposes only and are not necessarily indicative of the results that would have been obtained had the acquisition actually occurred on January 1, 2015. No assumptions have been applied to the pro forma results of operations regarding possible revenue enhancements, expense efficiencies or asset dispositions. Net income in the table below includes merger expenses.

The pro forma information above excludes the impact of any provision recorded related to renewing Central loans. Revenues and earnings included in the consolidated statements of operations of the acquired company were $15.6 million and $1.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

3.    Shareholders’ Equity
Preferred Stock: The number of authorized shares of preferred stock for the Company is 500,000. As of March 31, 2016, none were issued or outstanding.
Common Stock: As of March 31, 2016, the number of authorized shares of common stock for the Company was 15,000,000. As of March 31, 2016, 11,425,035 shares were outstanding.
On May 1, 2015, in connection with the Central merger, the Company issued 2,723,083 shares of its common stock. On June 22, 2015, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with certain institutional accredited investors, pursuant to which, on June 23, 2015, the Company sold an aggregate of 300,000 newly issued shares of the Company’s common stock, $1.00 par value per share, at a purchase price of $28.00 per share. Each of the purchasers was an existing shareholder of the Company.
On July 17, 2014, the board of directors of the Company approved a share repurchase program, allowing for the repurchase of up to $5.0 million of stock through December 31, 2016. The repurchase program replaced the Company’s prior repurchase program. Pursuant to the repurchase program, the Company may continue to repurchase shares from time to time in the open market, and the method, timing and amounts of repurchase will be solely in the discretion of the Company’s management. The repurchase program does not require the Company to acquire a specific number of shares. Therefore, the amount of shares repurchased pursuant to the program will depend on several factors, including market conditions, capital and liquidity requirements, and alternative uses for cash available. During the first quarter of 2016 the Company repurchased no common stock. Of the $5.0 million of stock authorized under the repurchase plan, $3.8 million remained available for possible future repurchases as of March 31, 2016.

4.    Earnings per Share
Basic per-share amounts are computed by dividing net income (the numerator) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding (the denominator). Diluted per-share amounts assume issuance of all common stock issuable upon conversion or exercise of other securities, unless the effect is to reduce the loss or increase the income per common share from continuing operations.

The Company's assessment of other-than-temporary impairment ("OTTI") is based on its reasonable judgment of the specific facts and circumstances impacting each individual security at the time such assessments are made. The Company reviews and considers factual information, including expected cash flows, the structure of the security, the creditworthiness of the issuer, the type of underlying assets and the current and anticipated market conditions.
 At March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company’s mortgage-backed securities and collateralized mortgage obligations portfolios consisted of securities predominantly backed by one- to four-family mortgage loans and underwritten to the standards of and guaranteed by the following government-sponsored agencies: the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, the Federal National Mortgage Association, and the Government National Mortgage Association. The receipt of principal, at par, and interest on mortgage-backed securities is guaranteed by the respective government-sponsored agency guarantor, such that the Company believes that its mortgage-backed securities and collateralized mortgage obligations do not expose the Company to credit-related losses.
At March 31, 2016, approximately 58% of the municipal bonds held by the Company were Iowa-based, and approximately 20% were Minnesota-based. The Company does not intend to sell these municipal obligations, and it is more likely than not that the Company will not be required to sell them until the recovery of their cost. Due to the issuers’ continued satisfaction of their obligations under the securities in accordance with their contractual terms and the expectation that they will continue to do so, management’s intent and ability to hold these securities for a period of time sufficient to allow for any anticipated recovery in fair value, as well as the evaluation of the fundamentals of the issuers’ financial conditions and other objective evidence, the Company believes that the municipal obligations identified in the tables above were temporarily impaired as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015.

12


As of March 31, 2016, the Company also owned $0.3 million of equity securities in banks and financial service-related companies, and $1.0 million of mutual funds invested in debt securities and other debt instruments that will cause units of the fund to be deemed to be qualified under the Community Reinvestment Act. Equity securities are considered to have OTTI whenever they have been in a loss position, compared to current book value, for twelve consecutive months, and the Company does not expect them to recover to their original cost basis. For the three months ended March 31, 2016 and the full year of 2015, no impairment charges were recorded, as the affected equity securities were not deemed impaired due to stabilized market prices in relation to the Company’s original purchase price.
It is reasonably possible that the fair values of the Company’s investment securities could decline in the future if interest rates increase or the overall economy or the financial conditions of the issuers deteriorate. As a result, there is a risk that OTTI may be recognized in the future and any such amounts could be material to the Company’s consolidated statements of operations.
The contractual maturity distribution of investment debt securities at March 31, 2016, is summarized as follows:

Mortgage-backed securities and collateralized mortgage obligations are collateralized by mortgage loans and guaranteed by U.S. government agencies. Our experience has indicated that principal payments will be collected sooner than scheduled because of prepayments. Therefore, these securities are not scheduled in the maturity categories indicated above. Equity securities available for sale with an amortized cost of $1.3 million and a fair value of $1.3 million are also excluded from this table.
Proceeds from the sales of investment securities available for sale during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and March 31, 2015 were $19.7 million and $48.3 million, respectively.
Realized gains and losses on sales are determined on the basis of specific identification of investments based on the trade date. Realized gains on investments for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 are as follows:
