In addition, the following risks related to the transaction in particular could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements: ability to obtain regulatory approvals and meet other closing conditions to the merger, including approval by First American shareholders, on the expected terms and schedule; delay in closing the merger; difficulties and delays in integrating the RBB and First American businesses or fully realizing cost savings and other benefits; business disruption following the proposed transaction Any statements about future operating results, such as those concerning accretion and dilution to RBB’s earnings or shareholders, are for illustrative purposes only, are not forecasts, and actual results may differ.

Non-GAAP Reconciliation: Tangible Common Equity and Tangible Assets Some of the financial measures included in this presentation are not measures of financial performance recognized by GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures include “tangible common equity to tangible assets,” “tangible book value per share,” and “return on average tangible common equity.” Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in its analysis of our performance. The following table reconciles shareholders’ equity (on a GAAP basis) to tangible common equity and total assets (on a GAAP basis) to tangible assets, calculates our tangible book value per share, and reconciles return on average tangible common equity to its most comparable GAAP measure: (Dollars in thousands, except per share data) As of and for the three months As of and for the Year Ended December 31, ended March 31, 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 Tangible Common Equity: Total Shareholders' Equity $108,113 $137,992 $151,981 $163,645 $181,585 $265,176 $275,822 Adjustments Goodwill (789) (4,001) (4,001) (4,001) (29,940) (29,940) (29,940) Core Deposit Intangible - (714) (582) (466) (1,793) (1,438) (1,357) Tangible Common Equity $107,324 $133,277 $147,398 $159,178 $149,852 $233,798 $244,525 Tangible Assets: Total Assets - GAAP 576,484 723,410 925,891 1,023,084 1,395,551 1,691,059 1,708,504 Adjustments Goodwill (789) (4,001) (4,001) (4,001) (29,940) (29,940) (29,940) Core Deposit Intangible - (714) (582) (466) (1,793) (1,438) (1,357) Tangible Assets $575,695 $718,695 $921,308 $1,018,617 $1,363,818 $1,659,681 $1,677,206 Common Shares Outstanding 10,455,135 12,547,201 12,720,659 12,770,571 12,827,803 15,908,893 16,288,928 Tangible Common Equity to Tangible Assets Ratio 18.64% 18.54% 16.00% 15.63% 10.99% 14.09% 14.58% Tangible Book Value Per Share $10.27 $10.62 $11.59 $12.46 $11.68 $14.70 $15.01 Average Tangible Common Equity: Average Shareholders' Equity $90,872 $124,103 $145,781 $157,615 $172,140 $218,717 $270,430 Adjustments Goodwill (789) (2,804) (4,001) (4,001) (25,167) (29,940) (29,940) Core Deposit Intangible - (479) (649) (526) (1,779) (1,620) (1,405) Average Tangible Common Equity $90,083 $120,820 $141,131 $153,088 $145,194 $187,157 $239,085 Net Income Available to Common Shareholders $4,046 $7,004 $10,428 $12,973 $19,079 $25,528 $8,847 Return on Average Tangible Common Equity 4.49% 5.80% 7.39% 8.47% 13.14% 13.64% 15.01% 28


Regulatory Reporting to Financial Statements: Adjusted Core Deposits Some of the financial measures included in this presentation and in forms 10-Q & 10-K filed with the SEC differ from those reported on the FRB Y-9(c) report. These financial measures include “core deposits to total deposits.” Our management uses this financial measure in its analysis of our performance. The Bank measures core deposits by reviewing all relationships over $250,000 on a quarterly basis. After discussions with our regulators on the proper way to measure core deposits, we now track all deposit relationships over $250,000 on a quarterly basis and consider a relationship to be core if there are any three or more of the following: (i) relationships with us (as a director or shareholder); (ii) deposits within our market area; (iii) additional non-deposit services with us; (iv) electronic banking services with us; (v) active demand deposit account with us; (vi) deposits at market interest rates; and (vii) longevity of the relationship with us. We consider all deposit relationships under $250,000 as a core relationship except for time deposits originated through an internet service. This differs from the traditional definition of core deposits which is demand and savings deposits plus time deposits less than $250,000. As many of our customers have more than $250,000 on deposit with us, we believe that using this method reflects a more accurate assessment of our deposit base. The following table reconciles the adjusted core deposit to total deposits: (Dollars in thousands) (Dollars in thousands) As of and for the three months ended March 31, As of and for the Year Ended December 31, 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 Core Depositsą $315,943 $422,252 $507,376 $567,980 $781,940 $990,824 $1,008,826 Adjustments to Core Deposits Time Deposits > $250,000 Considered as Core Deposits² 82,373 118,756 115,572 174,038 325,453 180,751 273,935 Less: Internet and Other Deposit Originator Deposits - - (44,562) (21,418) (30,971) (29,467) (26,883) < $250,000 Considered Non-Core³ Less: Other Deposits Not Considered Core⁴ - - - (70,759) (171,800) (136,943) (201,803) Adjusted Core Deposits $398,316 $541,008 $578,386 $649,841 $904,622 $1,005,165 $1,054,075 Total Deposits 442,678 574,079 767,365 853,417 1,152,763 1,337,281 1,373,504 Adjusted Core Deposits to Total Deposits Ratio 89.98% 94.24% 75.37% 76.15% 78.47% 75.16% 76.74% (1) All demand and savings deposits of any amount plus time deposits less than $250,000 (2) Time deposits to core customers over $250,000 as defined in the lead-in to the table above (3) Comprised of internet and outside deposit originator time deposits less than $250,000 which are not considered to be core deposits (4) Comprised of demand and savings deposits in relationships over $250,000 which are considered non-core deposits because they do not satisfy the definition of core deposits set forth in the lead-in to the table above 29
