Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are not historical facts or guarantees of future performance or events but instead express only management’s beliefs regarding future results or events, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside of management’s control. It is possible that actual results and events may differ, possibly materially, from the anticipated results or events indicated in these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements also are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and assumptions and may include projections relating to our future financial performance, including our growth strategies and anticipated trends in our business, and the timing of the closing of the offering and the timing and amount of the exercise, if any, of the underwriters’ option. For a detailed discussion of these and other risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results and events to differ materially from such forward-looking statements, you should refer to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, including the sections entitled “Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A of that report (as supplemented by the risk factors discussed under Part II, Item 1A of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020) and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in Part II, Item 7 of that report, as well as our subsequent periodic and current reports filed with the SEC. These risks and uncertainties are not exhaustive however. Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time, and it is not possible to predict all risks and uncertainties, nor can we assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. First Midwest cautions you not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. These statements speak only as of the date made, and we are under no duty to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform our prior statements to actual results or revised expectations, and we do not intend to do so.
