Results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2014

Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 was $4.5 million, compared with $3.6 million for the same period in 2013. Net income per diluted common share was $0.20 for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, compared with $0.17 for the same period in 2013. The increase in net income was principally due to increased interest income resulting from growth in loans. Other factors also contributed to the increase, including an increase in noninterest income and a decrease in interest expense, offset by increases in noninterest expense, provision for income taxes and provision for loan losses. Returns on average assets and average common equity, each on an annualized basis, for the three months ended September 30, 2014 were 0.98% and 7.58%, respectively. Green Bancorp's efficiency ratio, which represents noninterest expense divided by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income, was 63.3% for the three months ended September 30, 2014.

Net interest income before provision for loan losses for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, was $17.5 million, an increase of $3.2 million, or 22.5%, compared with $14.3 million during the same period in 2013. The increase was primarily due to a 15.9% increase in average loan volume, a 14 basis point decrease in the cost of interest-bearing deposits and a $78 thousand decrease in interest expense on other borrowed funds resulting from pay-down of term borrowings. The net interest margin for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 increased to 3.90%, compared with 3.47% for the same period in 2013 and increased from 3.87% for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. Increases in noninterest-bearing deposits and shareholders' equity contributed to the improvement in the net interest margin. Average noninterest-bearing deposits for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 were $374.8 million, an increase of $110.2 million compared with the same period in 2013, and an increase of $56.8 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2014. Average shareholders' equity for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 was $237.2 million, an increase of $43.5 million compared with the same period in 2013, and an increase of $31.7 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2014. Net interest income before provision for loan losses during the quarter ended September 30, 2014 increased 4.8% or $806 thousand, compared with $16.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, primarily due to a 3.5% increase in average loan volume.

Noninterest income for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 was $2.3 million, an increase of $1.2 million, or 109.9%, compared with $1.1 million for the same period in 2013. This increase was primarily due to an $810 thousand, or 337.5%, increase in gain on sale of the government guaranteed portion of certain loans and a $224 thousand, or 47.7%, increase in customer service fees. When comparing the quarter ended September 30, 2014 to the quarter ended June 30, 2014, noninterest income increased $356 thousand, or 18.0%, from $2.0 million primarily due to a $257 thousand, or 32.4%, increase in gain on sale of the government guaranteed portion of certain loans.

Noninterest expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 was $12.6 million, an increase of $2.8 million, or 29.0%, compared with $9.7 million for the same period in 2013. This increase was primarily due to a $1.5 million increase in salaries and employee benefits resulting primarily from recognizing $925 thousand in stock-based compensation expense to reflect the increased valuation of our stock following our initial public offering related to our legacy Stock Appreciation Rights Plan, and increased compensation due to our portfolio banker compensation program and general merit compensation increases. The increase in noninterest expense is also attributable to a $726 thousand increase in professional expenses related to M&A and public company activities, with M&A related expenses totaling $550 thousand, and expenses related to being a public company totaling $103 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. The final material contribution to the increase in noninterest expense was in net real estate acquired by foreclosure expense, resulting from a gain of $461 thousand and rental income of $201 thousand in the quarter ended September 30, 2013. When comparing the quarter ended September 30, 2014 to the quarter ended June 30, 2014, noninterest expense increased 10.2%, or $1.2 million, from $11.4 million, primarily due to the $925 thousand stock-based compensation expense described above, and the recovery of other losses of $360 thousand in the prior period, slightly offset by a decrease of $279 thousand in professional expenses related to M&A activities.

Loans at September 30, 2014 were $1.5 billion, an increase of $234.4 million, or 18.5%, compared with $1.3 billion at September 30, 2013, primarily due to continued opportunities for our portfolio bankers to generate new loans and expand existing relationships within our target markets. Loans at September 30, 2014 increased $71.3 million, or 5.0%, from June 30, 2014 due mainly to the continued marketing activity of our portfolio bankers within our target markets. Average loans increased 15.9% or $200.9 million to $1.5 billion for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, compared with $1.3 billion for the same period in 2013. Average loans for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 increased 3.5% or $50.0 million from the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Deposits at September 30, 2014 were $1.6 billion, an increase of $94.4 million, or 6.4%, compared to September 30, 2013, primarily due to our customer focused strategy resulting in an increase in our commercial deposits, public fund deposits, and bankruptcy trustee deposits after allowing certain promotional deposits to run off at the end of 2013 and early 2014. Deposits at September 30, 2014 increased $43.1 million or 2.8% from June 30, 2014 due primarily to an increase in commercial noninterest-bearing deposits. Noninterest-bearing deposits at September 30, 2014 were $393.6 million, an increase of $125.4 million, or 46.8%, compared to September 30, 2013 and an increase of $51.0 million, or 14.9%, compared to June 30, 2014. Average deposits increased 5.9% or $87.1 million to $1.6 billion for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, compared with the same period of 2013. Average deposits for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 increased 3.2% or $48.1 million compared with the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $12.7 million, compared with $9.5 million for the same period in 2013. Net income per diluted common share was $0.58 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, compared with $0.46 for the same period in 2013. The increase in net income was principally due to increased interest income resulting from growth in loans. Other factors also contributed to the increase, including an increase in noninterest income and a decrease in interest expense, offset by increases in noninterest expense, provision for income taxes and provision for loan losses. Returns on average assets and average common equity, each on an annualized basis, for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were 0.95% and 7.90%, respectively. Green Bancorp's efficiency ratio was 61.9% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

Net interest income before provision for loan losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, was $49.9 million an increase of $8.2 million, or 19.8%, compared with $41.7 million during the same period in 2013. The increase was primarily due to a 15.3% increase in average loan volume, a 12 basis point decrease in the cost of interest-bearing deposits, a 27 basis point increase in the yield on securities and a $296 thousand decrease in interest expense on other borrowed funds resulting from the pay-down of term borrowings, partially offset by a 9 basis point decrease in loan yields. The net interest margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 increased to 3.86%, compared with 3.42% for the same period in 2013. Average noninterest-bearing deposits for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were $323.2 million, an increase of $67.5 million compared with the same period in 2013. Average shareholders' equity for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $214.7 million, an increase of $23.2 million compared with the same period in 2013.

This increase was primarily due to a $1.2 million increase in gain on sale of the guaranteed portion of certain loans, a $509 thousand increase in customer service fees primarily related to bankruptcy trustee and commercial account treasury management service charges, and a $503 thousand increase in miscellaneous loan fees primarily prepayment fees.

Noninterest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, was $34.6 million, an increase of $5.3 million, or 18.2%, compared with $29.2 million for the same period in 2013. This increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and employee benefits of $2.8 million, or 14.6%, resulting from the previously discussed stock-based compensation expense, increased staffing levels and increased compensation due to our portfolio banker compensation program and general merit compensation increases, a $1.7 million increase in professional expenses related to M&A and public company activities with M&A related expenses totaling $1.5 million and expenses related to being a public company totaling $132 thousand for the nine months ended September 30, 2014; and a $940 thousand increase in real estate acquired by foreclosure expense resulting primarily from gain and rental income in the prior period.

Notes to Financial Highlights

(Unaudited)

We identify certain financial measures discussed in this release as being "non‑GAAP financial measures." In accordance with the SEC's rules, we classify a financial measure as being a non‑GAAP financial measure if that financial measure excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding or including amounts, that are included or excluded, as the case may be, in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles as in effect from time to time in the United States in our statements of income, balance sheet or statements of cash flows. Non‑GAAP financial measures do not include operating and other statistical measures or ratios or statistical measures calculated using exclusively either financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, operating measures or other measures that are not non‑GAAP financial measures or both.

The non‑GAAP financial measures that we discuss in this release should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable or other financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate the non‑GAAP financial measures that we discuss in this prospectus may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names. You should understand how such other banking organizations calculate their financial measures similar or with names similar to the non‑GAAP financial measures we have discussed in this release when comparing such non‑GAAP financial measures.

Tangible Book Value Per Common Share. Tangible book value is a non‑GAAP measure generally used by financial analysts and investment bankers to evaluate financial institutions. We calculate: (a) tangible common equity as shareholders' equity less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; and (b) tangible book value per common share as tangible common equity (as described in clause (a)) divided by shares of common stock outstanding. For tangible book value, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is our book value.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in changes from period to period in book value per common share exclusive of changes in intangible assets. Goodwill and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing total book value while not increasing our tangible book value.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, total shareholders' equity to tangible common equity and presents our tangible book value per common share compared with our book value per common share:

Tangible Common Equity to Tangible Assets. Tangible common equity to tangible assets is a non‑GAAP measure generally used by financial analysts and investment bankers to evaluate financial institutions. We calculate: (a) tangible common equity as shareholders' equity less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; (b) tangible assets as total assets less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; and (c) tangible common equity to tangible assets as tangible common equity (as described in clause (a)) divided by tangible assets (as described in clause (b)). For common equity to tangible assets, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is total shareholders' equity to total assets.

Notes to Financial Highlights

(Unaudited)

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in the relative changes from period to period in common equity and total assets, each exclusive of changes in intangible assets. Goodwill and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing both total shareholders' equity and assets while not increasing our tangible common equity or tangible assets.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, total shareholders' equity to tangible common equity and total assets to tangible assets and presents our tangible common equity to tangible assets:
