PRESS RELEASE

- HERMITAGE, PA

F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB) announced today that it will fully redeem all of the preferred stock it sold to the U.S. Treasury (UST) in January 2009. The preferred stock was issued to the Treasury Department pursuant to the Capital Purchase Program (CPP). The Company is paying $100.3 million to the UST to redeem the preferred stock, which includes the original investment amount of $100 million plus accrued unpaid dividends of $0.3 million. 

F.N.B. was approved to pay the funds back without any conditions from regulators. "We believe that our repurchase of the preferred shares is in the best long-term interest of our shareholders," said Stephen J. Gurgovits, President and Chief Executive Officer of F.N.B. Corporation. “Based upon our strong capital position, we have a solid foundation to continue to meet the needs of our customers, while sending a strong message to our customers, employees and shareholders that we are a well capitalized, stable and secure financial institution.” In conjunction with its participation in the CPP, F.N.B. Corporation issued to the UST a warrant to purchase up to 1,302,083 shares of FNB common stock.  In June 2009, F.N.B. completed a common stock offering that raised approximately $125.8 million. With the Company’s successful capital raise in June, the number of Company shares subject to the warrant was reduced by one half to 651,041.5. The Company has 15 days to notify the UST whether it intends to repurchase the warrant.
