RENASANT CORP MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (form 10-Q)

05/06/2022 | 11:50am EDT

(In Thousands, Except Share Data)


This Form 10-Q may contain or incorporate by reference statements regarding
Renasant Corporation (referred to herein as the "Company", "we", "our", or "us")
that constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A
of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Statements preceded by, followed by or that
otherwise include the words "believes," "expects," "projects," "anticipates,"
"intends," "estimates," "plans," "potential," "possible," "may increase," "may
fluctuate," "will likely result," and similar expressions, or future or
conditional verbs such as "will," "should," "would" and "could," are generally
forward-looking in nature and not historical facts. Forward-looking statements
include information about the Company's future financial performance, business
strategy, projected plans and objectives and are based on the current beliefs
and expectations of management. The Company's management believes these
forward-looking statements are reasonable, but they are all inherently subject
to significant business, economic and competitive risks and uncertainties, many
of which are beyond the Company's control. In addition, these forward-looking
statements are subject to assumptions with respect to future business strategies
and decisions that are subject to change. Actual results may differ from those
indicated or implied in the forward-looking statements, and such differences may
be material. Prospective investors are cautioned that any such forward-looking
statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and
uncertainties and, accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on
these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made.

Important factors currently known to management that could cause our actual
results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include
the following: (i) the Company's ability to efficiently integrate acquisitions
into its operations, retain the customers of these businesses, grow the acquired
operations and realize the cost savings expected from an acquisition to the
extent and in the timeframe anticipated by management; (ii) the effect of
economic conditions and interest rates on a national, regional or international
basis; (iii) timing and success of the implementation of changes in operations
to achieve enhanced earnings or effect cost savings; (iv) competitive pressures
in the consumer finance, commercial finance, insurance, financial services,
asset management, retail banking, mortgage lending and auto lending industries;
(v) the financial resources of, and products available from, competitors; (vi)
changes in laws and regulations as well as changes in accounting standards;
(vii) changes in policy by regulatory agencies; (viii) changes in the securities
and foreign exchange markets; (ix) the Company's potential growth, including its
entrance or expansion into new markets, and the need for sufficient capital to
support that growth; (x) changes in the quality or composition of the Company's
loan or investment portfolios, including adverse developments in borrower
industries or in the repayment ability of individual borrowers; (xi) an
insufficient allowance for credit losses as a result of inaccurate assumptions;
(xii) general economic, market or business conditions, including the impact of
inflation and changes in monetary policy by the Federal Reserve Board; (xiii)
changes in demand for loan products and financial services; (xiv) concentration
of credit exposure; (xv) changes or the lack of changes in interest rates, yield
curves and interest rate spread relationships; (xvi) increased cybersecurity
risk, including potential network breaches, business disruptions or financial
losses; (xvii) civil unrest, natural disasters, epidemics (including the
re-emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic) and other catastrophic events in the
Company's geographic area; (xviii) the impact, extent and timing of
technological changes; and (xix) other circumstances, many of which are beyond
management's control. Management believes that the assumptions underlying the
Company's forward-looking statements are reasonable, but any of the assumptions
could prove to be inaccurate.

The Company undertakes no obligation, and specifically disclaims any obligation,
to update or revise forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new
information or to reflect changed assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated
events or changes to future operating results over time, except as required by
federal securities laws.

December 31, 2021. The Company acquired Southeastern Commercial Finance, LLC, an

The securities portfolio is used to provide a source for meeting liquidity needs
and to supply securities to be used in collateralizing certain deposits and
certain types of borrowings. The securities portfolio also serves as an outlet
to deploy excess liquidity and generate interest income rather than hold such
excess funds as cash. The following table shows the carrying value of our
securities portfolio by investment type and the percentage of such investment
type relative to the entire securities portfolio as of the dates presented:

                                                           March 31, 2022                                         December 31, 2021

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we deployed a portion of our
excess liquidity into the securities portfolio and purchased $365,069 in
investment securities. Mortgage-backed securities and collateralized mortgage
obligations ("CMOs"), in the aggregate, comprised approximately 72% of these
purchases. CMOs are included in the "Mortgage-backed securities" line item in
the above table. The mortgage-backed securities and CMOs held in our investment
portfolio are primarily issued by government sponsored entities. Obligations of
state and political subdivisions comprised approximately 11% of purchases made
during the first three months of 2022. Other debt securities in our investment
portfolio, consisting of corporate debt securities and issuances from the Small
Business Administration ("SBA"), comprised approximately 17% of purchases made
during the first three months of 2022.

Rising interest rates in the first quarter of 2022 had a negative impact on the
value of our securities portfolio resulting in a fair market value adjustment of
our available for sale securities of $134,756, which contributed to our
accumulated other comprehensive loss.

Proceeds from maturities, calls and principal payments on securities during the
first three months of 2022 totaled $135,775. The Company did not sell any
securities during the first three months of 2022. Proceeds from the maturities,
calls and principal payments on securities during the first three months of 2021
totaled $95,382. The Company sold municipal securities, residential mortgage
backed securities and trust preferred securities with a carrying value of
$154,034 at the time of sale for net proceeds of $155,391, resulting in a net
gain on sale of $1,357 during the first three months of 2021.

For more information about the Company's security portfolio, see Note 2, "Securities," in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company in Item 1, Financial Statements, in this report.

Loans Held for Sale


Loans held for sale, which consist of residential mortgage loans being held
until they are sold in the secondary market, were $280,464 at March 31, 2022, as
compared to $453,533 at December 31, 2021. Mortgage loans to be sold are sold
either on a "best efforts" basis or under a mandatory delivery sales agreement.
Under a "best efforts" sales agreement, residential real estate originations are
locked in at a contractual rate with third party private investors or directly
with government sponsored agencies, and the Company is obligated to sell the
mortgages to such investors only if the mortgages are closed and funded. The
risk we assume is conditioned upon loan underwriting and market conditions in
the national mortgage market. Under a mandatory delivery sales agreement, the
Company commits to deliver a certain principal amount of mortgage loans to an
investor at a specified price and delivery date. Penalties are paid to the
investor if we fail to satisfy the contract. Gains and losses are realized at
the time consideration is received and all other criteria for sales treatment
have been met. Our standard practice is to sell the loans within 30-40 days
after the loan is funded. Although loan fees and some interest income are
derived from mortgage loans held for sale, the main source of income is gains
from the sale of these loans in the secondary market.

Loan concentrations are considered to exist when there are amounts loaned to a
number of borrowers engaged in similar activities that would cause them to be
similarly impacted by economic or other conditions. At March 31, 2022, there
were no concentrations of loans exceeding 10% of total loans which are not
disclosed as a category of loans separate from the categories listed above.

Deposits


The Company relies on deposits as its major source of funds. Total deposits were
$13,990,897 and $13,905,724 at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021,
respectively. Noninterest-bearing deposits were $4,706,256 and $4,718,124 at
March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, while interest-bearing
deposits were $9,284,641 and $9,187,600 at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021,
respectively.

Management continues to focus on growing and maintaining a stable source of
funding, specifically noninterest-bearing deposits and other core deposits (that
is, deposits excluding time deposits greater than $250,000). Noninterest bearing
deposits represented 33.64% of total deposits at March 31, 2022, as compared to
33.93% of total deposits at December 31, 2021. Under certain circumstances,
management may elect to acquire non-core deposits (in the form of time deposits)
or public fund deposits (which are deposits of counties, municipalities or other
political subdivisions). The source of funds that we select depends on the terms
and how those terms assist us in mitigating interest rate risk, maintaining our
liquidity position and managing our net interest margin. Accordingly, funds are
acquired to meet anticipated funding needs at the rate and with other terms
that, in management's view, best address our interest rate risk, liquidity and
net interest margin parameters.

Public fund deposits may be readily obtained based on the Company's pricing bid
in comparison with competitors. Because public fund deposits are obtained
through a bid process, these deposit balances may fluctuate as competitive and
market forces change. Although the Company has focused on growing stable sources
of deposits to reduce reliance on public fund deposits, it participates in the
bidding process for public fund deposits when pricing and other terms make it
reasonable given market conditions or when management perceives that other
factors, such as the public entity's use of our treasury management or other
products and services, make such participation advisable. Our public fund
transaction accounts are principally obtained from public universities and
municipalities, including school boards and utilities. Public fund deposits were
$1,825,839 and $1,787,414 at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

Borrowed Funds

Total borrowings include federal funds purchased, securities sold under
agreements to repurchase, advances from the FHLB, subordinated notes and junior
subordinated debentures and are classified on the Consolidated Balance Sheets as
either short-term borrowings or long-term debt. Short-term borrowings have
original maturities less than one year and typically include federal funds
purchased, securities sold under agreements to repurchase, and short-term FHLB
advances. The following table presents our short-term borrowings by type as of
the dates presented:

                                             March 31, 2022       December 31, 2021

The Company has hedged the interest rate risk associated with the short-term
borrowings from the FHLB using an interest rate swap, which became effective in
March 2022, in which it pays a fixed rate of interest. The effect of this
interest rate hedge was to significantly reduce the cost to the Company of
borrowing from the FHLB, and so the Company elected to take advantage of the
availability of this low-cost funding in the first quarter of 2022.

At March 31, 2022, long-term debt consists of long-term FHLB advances, our junior subordinated debentures and our subordinated notes. The following table presents our long-term debt by type as of the dates presented:


                                  March 31, 2022       December 31, 2021
Long-term FHLB advances          $           408      $              417
Junior subordinated debentures           111,518                 111,373
Subordinated notes                       323,490                 359,419

Long-term funds obtained from the FHLB are used to match-fund fixed rate loans
in order to minimize interest rate risk and to meet day-to-day liquidity needs,
particularly when the cost of such borrowing compares favorably to the rates
that we would be required to pay to attract deposits. At March 31, 2022, all of
our outstanding long-term FHLB advances were scheduled to mature within twelve
months or less. The Company had $4,047,128 of availability on unused lines of
credit with the FHLB at March 31, 2022, as compared to $4,214,274 at
December 31, 2021.

The Company has issued subordinated notes, the proceeds of which have been used for general corporate purposes, including providing capital to support the Company's growth organically or through strategic acquisitions, repaying indebtedness and financing investments and capital expenditures, and for investments in Renasant Bank (the "Bank") as regulatory capital. The subordinated notes qualify as Tier 2 capital under the current regulatory guidelines.

On March 1, 2022, the Company redeemed at par the remaining $30,000 of its $60,000 5.00% fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes. The Company redeemed the initial $30,000 of these notes in December 2021.


The Company owns the outstanding common securities of business trusts that
issued corporation-obligated mandatorily redeemable preferred capital securities
to third-party investors. The trusts used the proceeds from the issuance of
their preferred capital securities and common securities (collectively referred
to as "capital securities") to buy floating rate junior subordinated debentures
issued by the Company (or by companies that the Company subsequently acquired).
The debentures are the trusts' only assets and interest payments from the
debentures finance the distributions paid on the capital securities.

Results of Operations

Net Income

Net income for the first quarter of 2022 was $33,547 compared to net income of $57,908 for the first quarter of 2021. Basic and diluted earnings per share ("EPS") for the first quarter of 2022 were $0.60 as compared to basic and diluted EPS of $1.03 and $1.02, respectively, for the first quarter of 2021.

From time to time, the Company incurs expenses and charges or recognizes valuation adjustments in connection with certain transactions with respect to which management is unable to accurately predict when these items will be incurred or, when incurred, the amount of such items. The following table presents the impact of these items on reported EPS for the dates

primarily consists of (a) employee overtime and employee benefit accruals
directly related to the Company's response to both the COVID-19 pandemic itself
and federal legislation enacted to address the pandemic, such as the CARES Act,
and (b) expenses associated with supplying branches with protective equipment
and sanitation supplies (such as floor markings and cautionary signage for
branches, face coverings and hand sanitizer) as well as more frequent and
rigorous branch cleaning.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income, the difference between interest earned on assets and the
cost of interest-bearing liabilities, is the largest component of our net
income, comprising 73.02% of total revenue (i.e., net interest income on a fully
taxable equivalent basis and noninterest income) for the first quarter of 2022.
The primary concerns in managing net interest income are the volume, mix and
repricing of assets and liabilities.

Net interest income was $99,629 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, as
compared to $109,648 for the same period in 2021. On a tax equivalent basis, net
interest income was $101,383 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, as
compared to $111,264 same period in 2021.

The following tables set forth average balance sheet data, including all major
categories of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, together
with the interest earned or interest paid and the average yield or average rate
paid on each such category for the periods presented:

(1)U.S. Government and some U.S. Government Agency securities are tax-exempt in
the states in which the Company operates.
(2)Interest-bearing demand deposits include interest-bearing transactional
accounts and money market deposits.

The average balances of nonaccruing assets are included in the tables above.
Interest income and weighted average yields on tax-exempt loans and securities
have been computed on a fully tax equivalent basis assuming a federal tax rate
of 21% and a state tax rate of 4.45%, which is net of federal tax benefit.

Net interest margin and net interest income are influenced by internal and
external factors. Internal factors include balance sheet changes in volume, mix
and pricing decisions. External factors include changes in market interest
rates, competition and the shape of the interest rate yield curve. As discussed
in more detail below, the decline in loan yields due to the low interest rate
environment during the past year as well as changes in the mix of earning assets
over the past year due to increased liquidity on the balance sheet were the
largest contributing factors to the decrease in net interest margin and net
interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2022, as compared to the
same period in 2021. The Company has continued to focus on lowering the cost of
funding through growing noninterest-bearing deposits and aggressively lowering
interest rates on interest-bearing deposits. The Company has also increased its
purchases of investment securities and continues to evaluate options to mitigate
the pressure on net interest margin.

The following table sets forth a summary of the changes in interest earned, on a
tax equivalent basis, and interest paid resulting from changes in volume and
rates for the Company for the three months ended March 31, 2022, as compared to
the same period

Interest income, on a tax equivalent basis, was $111,945 for the three months
ended March 31, 2022, as compared to $123,378, for the same period in 2021. This
decrease in interest income, on a tax equivalent basis, is due primarily to the
Federal Reserve maintaining low interest rates since March 2020 (until the
Federal Reserve's first rate increase in March 2022) and changes in the mix of
earning assets during the year due to increased liquidity on the balance sheet.

The following table presents the percentage of total average earning assets, by type and yield, for the periods presented:

For the first quarter of 2022, interest income on loans held for investment, on
a tax equivalent basis, decreased $16,071 to $97,001 from $113,072 for the same
period in 2021. Interest income on loans held for investment decreased primarily
due to the Federal Reserve maintaining low interest rates since March 2020.
Interest income attributable to PPP loans included in loan interest income for
the three months ended March 31, 2022, was $619, which consisted of $94 in
interest income and $526 in accretion of net origination fees, as compared to
$10,687 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, which consisted of $2,392 in
interest income and $8,295 in accretion of net origination fees. The PPP
origination fees, net of agent fees paid and other origination costs, are being
accreted into interest income over the life of the loan. If a PPP loan is
forgiven in whole or in part, as provided under the CARES Act, the Company will
recognize the non-accreted portion of the net origination fee attributable to
the forgiven portion of such loan as of the date of the final forgiveness
determination. PPP loans increased margin and loan yield by one basis point each
during the first quarter of 2022. PPP loans increased margin and loan yield by
eight basis points and two basis points, respectively, in the first quarter of
2021.

(1)Includes additional interest income recognized in connection with the
acceleration of paydowns and payoffs from purchased loans of $373 and $1,272,
for the first quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively. This additional interest
income increased total loan yield by one basis point and five basis points for
the first quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively, while increasing net interest
margin by one and four basis points for the same respective periods.

For the first quarter of 2022, interest income on loans held for sale (consisting of mortgage loans held for sale) decreased $136 to $2,863 from $2,999 for the same period in 2021.


Investment income, on a tax equivalent basis, increased $4,293 to $11,417 for
the first quarter of 2022 from $7,124 for the first quarter of 2021. The tax
equivalent yield on the investment portfolio for the first quarter of 2022 was
1.55%, down 53 basis points from 2.08% for the same period in 2021. The decrease
in taxable equivalent yield on securities was a result of the low interest rate
environment over the period. The growth in the Company's investment securities
portfolio during the year has helped offset the loss of investment income due to
lower yield on securities.

Interest expense was $10,562 for the first quarter of 2022 as compared to $12,114 for the same period in 2021.

Interest expense on deposits was $5,637 and $8,279 for the three months ended
March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The cost of total deposits was 0.17% and
0.27% for the same respective periods. The decrease in both deposit expense and
cost is attributable to the Company's efforts to reduce deposit rates as they
repriced in a low interest rate environment, although the Company expects that
the rising rate environment will limit its ability to achieve further reductions
in deposit interest rates and in fact may result in increased deposit costs in
future periods. During 2022, the Company has continued its efforts to grow and
maintain non-interest bearing deposits. Such deposits stayed relatively flat
over the first quarter, representing 33.64% of total

                                       57
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Table of Contents
deposits at March 31, 2022 compared to 33.93% of total deposits at December 31,
2021. Low cost deposits continue to be the preferred choice of funding; however,
the Company may rely on wholesale borrowings when rates are advantageous.

Interest expense on total borrowings was $4,925 and $3,835 for the three months
ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The increase in interest expense is
a result of higher average borrowings, primarily due to the Company's issuance
of $200,000 of subordinated notes in November 2021.

A more detailed discussion of the cost of our funding sources is set forth below under the heading "Liquidity and Capital Resources" in this Item.

Total noninterest income includes fees generated from deposit services and other
fees and commissions, income from our insurance, wealth management and mortgage
banking operations, realized gains on the sale of securities and all other
noninterest income. Our focus is to develop and enhance our products that
generate noninterest income in order to diversify revenue sources. Noninterest
income was $37,458 for the first quarter of 2022 as compared to $81,037 for the
same period in 2021. This decrease is primarily due to the reduction in mortgage
banking income during the first quarter of 2022 (discussed in more detail below)
as compared to the record production during the first quarter of 2021.

Service charges on deposit accounts include maintenance fees on accounts, per
item charges, account enhancement charges for additional packaged benefits and
overdraft fees (which encompasses traditional overdraft fees as well as
non-sufficient funds fees). Service charges on deposit accounts were $9,562 and
$8,023 for the first quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively. Overdraft fees, the
largest component of service charges on deposits, were $5,178 for the three
months ended March 31, 2022, as compared to $3,955 for the same period in 2021.
The Company recently announced its plans to eliminate consumer non-sufficient
funds fees as well as transfer fees to linked customer accounts. These changes
will take effect January 1, 2023. The fees to be eliminated totaled
approximately $1,300 in the first quarter of 2022.

Fees and commissions were $3,982 during the first quarter of 2022 as compared to
$3,900 for the same period in 2021. Fees and commissions include fees related to
deposit services, such as ATM fees and interchange fees on debit card
transactions. For the first quarter of 2022, interchange fees were $2,431 as
compared to $2,392 for the same period in 2021.

Through Renasant Insurance, we offer a range of commercial and personal
insurance products through major insurance carriers. Income earned on insurance
products was $2,554 and $2,237 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and
2021, respectively. Contingency income is a bonus received from the insurance
underwriters and is based both on commission income and claims experience on our
clients' policies during the previous year. Increases and decreases in
contingency income are reflective of corresponding increases and decreases in
the number of claims paid by insurance carriers. Contingency income, which is
included in "Other noninterest income" in the Consolidated Statements of Income,
was $534 and $1,006 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021,
respectively.

Our Wealth Management segment has two primary divisions: Trust and Financial
Services. The Trust division operates on a custodial basis which includes
administration of benefit plans, as well as accounting and money management for
trust accounts. The division manages a number of trust accounts inclusive of
personal and corporate benefit accounts, IRAs, and custodial accounts. Fees for
managing these accounts are based on changes in market values of the assets
under management in the account, with the amount of the fee depending on the
type of account. The Financial Services division provides specialized products
and services to our customers, which include fixed and variable annuities,
mutual funds, and stocks offered through a third party provider. Wealth
Management revenue was $5,924 for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $4,792
for the same period in 2021. The market value of assets under management or
administration was $5,021,299 and $4,453,355 at March 31, 2022 and March 31,
2021, respectively.

Mortgage banking income is derived from the origination and sale of mortgage
loans and the servicing of mortgage loans that the Company has sold but retained
the right to service. Although loan fees and some interest income are derived
from mortgage loans held for sale, the main source of income is gains from the
sale of these loans in the secondary market. Originations of mortgage loans to
be sold totaled $595,045 in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $1,143,349 for
the same period in 2021. During the first quarter of 2022 mortgage loan
originations continued to normalize and trend toward pre-pandemic levels while
margins on the sale of loans in the secondary market compressed as interest
rates rose and housing inventories remained below

Bank-owned life insurance ("BOLI") income is derived from changes in the cash
surrender value of the bank-owned life insurance policies and proceeds received
upon the death of covered individuals. BOLI income was $2,153 for the three
months ended March 31, 2022 as compared to $2,072 for the same period in 2021.
The Company purchased an additional $80,000 in BOLI policies during the first
three months of 2022.

Other noninterest income was $3,650 and $7,923 for the three months ended March
31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Other noninterest income includes income from
our SBA banking division and other miscellaneous income and can fluctuate based
on production in our SBA banking division and recognition of other seasonal
income items.

Noninterest Expense

                                           Noninterest Expense to Average Assets

Noninterest expense was $94,105 and $115,935 for the first quarter of 2022 and 2021.


Salaries and employee benefits decreased $16,457 to $62,239 for the first
quarter of 2022 as compared to $78,696 for the same period in 2021. The decrease
in salaries and employee benefits is primarily due to a decrease in mortgage
commissions and incentives, driven by the decrease in mortgage production
described above.

Data processing costs decreased to $4,263 in the first quarter of 2022 from
$5,451 for the same period in 2021. The decline in the first quarter of 2022 as
compared to the same period in 2021 is primarily due to the Company's
renegotiation of certain vendor contracts. The Company continues to examine new
and existing contracts to negotiate favorable terms to offset the increased
variable cost components of our data processing costs, such as new accounts and
increased transaction volume.

Net occupancy and equipment expense for the first quarter of 2022 was $11,276,
down from $12,538 for the same period in 2021. The decrease in occupancy and
equipment expense is primarily attributable to the restructuring and non-renewal
of certain branch leases.

For the first quarter of 2022 the Company experienced a net gain of $241 in
other real estate expense as compared to expenses of $41 for the same period in
2021. Expenses on other real estate owned included write downs of the carrying
value to fair value on certain pieces of property held in other real estate
owned of $14 and $70 for the first three months of 2022 and 2021, respectively.
For the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, other real estate owned with
a cost basis of $665 and $1,906, respectively, was sold, resulting in a net gain
of $291 and net gain of $56, respectively.

Professional fees include fees for legal and accounting services, such as
routine litigation matters, external audit services as well as assistance in
complying with newly-enacted and existing banking and governmental regulations.
Professional fees were $3,151 for the first quarter of 2022 as compared to
$2,921 for the same period in 2021.

Advertising and public relations expense was $4,059 for the first quarter of
2022 as compared to $3,252 for the same period in 2021. During the first quarter
of 2022, the Company contributed approximately $1,000 to charitable
organizations throughout Mississippi and Georgia, which is included in our
advertising and public relations expense, for which it received a dollar for
dollar tax credit.

Amortization of intangible assets totaled $1,366 and $1,598 for the first
quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively. This amortization relates to
finite-lived intangible assets which are being amortized over the useful lives
as determined at acquisition. These finite-lived intangible assets have
remaining estimated useful lives ranging from approximately 1 year to 8 years.

Communication expenses, those expenses incurred for communication to clients and between employees, were $2,027 for the first quarter of 2022 as compared to $2,292 for the same period in 2021.


Other noninterest expense includes the provision for unfunded commitments,
business development and travel expenses, other discretionary expenses, loan
fees expense and other miscellaneous fees and operating expenses. Other
noninterest expense was $5,733 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 as
compared to $8,854 for the same periods in 2021. During the first quarter of
2022 there was a recovery of provision for unfunded commitments of $550. There
was no provision for unfunded commitments recorded for the same period in 2021.

The efficiency ratio is a measure of productivity in the banking industry. (This
ratio is a measure of our ability to turn expenses into revenue. That is, the
ratio is designed to reflect the percentage of one dollar that we must expend to
generate a dollar of revenue.) The Company calculates this ratio by dividing
noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income on a fully tax equivalent
basis and noninterest income. The table above shows the impact on the efficiency
ratio of items that (1) the Company does not consider to be part of its core
operating activities, such as amortization of intangibles, or (2) the Company
incurred in connection with certain transactions where management is unable to
accurately predict the timing of when these items will be incurred or, when
incurred, the amount of such items, such as, for the first quarter of 2022,
merger and conversion related expenses, restructuring benefits and a recovery of
a portion of the reserve for unfunded commitments. We remain committed to
aggressively managing our costs within the framework of our business model. Our
goal is to improve the efficiency ratio over time from currently reported levels
as a result of revenue growth while at the same time controlling noninterest
expenses.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense for the first quarter of 2022 and 2021 was $7,935 and
$16,842, respectively. In addition to lower earnings in the first quarter of
2022 as compared to the first quarter of 2021, the Company also recognized tax
credits of approximately $1,000 in the first quarter of 2022 as mentioned above
in the advertising and public relations discussion.

Risk Management


The management of risk is an on-going process. Primary risks that are associated
with the Company include credit, interest rate and liquidity risk. Credit risk
and interest rate risk are discussed below, while liquidity risk is discussed in
the next subsection under the heading "Liquidity and Capital Resources."

Credit Risk and Allowance for Credit Losses on Loans and Unfunded Commitments


Management of Credit Risk. Inherent in any lending activity is credit risk, that
is, the risk of loss should a borrower default. Credit risk is monitored and
managed on an ongoing basis by our credit administration department, our problem
asset resolution committee and the Board of Directors Credit Review Committee.
Oversight of the Company's lending operations (including adherence to our
policies and procedures governing the loan approval and monitoring process),
credit quality and loss mitigation are major concerns of credit administration
and these committees. The Company's central appraisal review department reviews
and approves third-party appraisals obtained by the Company on real estate
collateral and monitors loan maturities to ensure updated appraisals are
obtained. This department is managed by a State Certified General Real Estate
Appraiser and employs three additional State Certified General Real Estate
Appraisers and four real estate evaluators. In addition, we maintain a loan
review staff to independently monitor loan quality and lending practices. Loan
review personnel

                                       60

  Table of Contents
monitor and, if necessary, adjust the grades assigned to loans through periodic
examination, focusing their review on commercial and real estate loans rather
than consumer and small balance consumer mortgage loans, such as 1-4 family
mortgage loans.

In compliance with loan policy, the lending staff is given lending limits based
on their knowledge and experience. In addition, each lending officer's prior
performance is evaluated for credit quality and compliance as a tool for
establishing and enhancing lending limits. Before funds are advanced on consumer
and commercial loans below certain dollar thresholds, loans are reviewed and
scored using centralized underwriting methodologies. Loan quality, or
"risk-rating," grades are assigned based upon certain factors, which include the
scoring of the loans. This information is used to assist management in
monitoring credit quality. Loan requests of amounts greater than an officer's
lending limit are reviewed for approval by senior credit officers.

For loans with a commercial purpose, risk-rating grades are assigned by lending,
credit administration and loan review personnel, based on an analysis of the
financial and collateral strength and other credit attributes underlying each
loan. Loan grades range from 1 to 9, with 1 rated loans having the least credit
risk.

Management's problem asset resolution committee and the Board of Directors'
Credit Review Committee monitor loans that are past due or those that have been
downgraded to criticized due to a decline in the collateral value or cash flow
of the borrower. This information is used to assist management in monitoring
credit quality. When the ultimate collectability of a loan's principal is in
doubt, wholly or partially, the loan is placed on nonaccrual.

After all collection efforts have failed, collateral securing loans may be
repossessed and sold or, for loans secured by real estate, foreclosure
proceedings initiated. The collateral is sold at public auction for fair market
value (based upon recent appraisals as described above), with fees associated
with the foreclosure being deducted from the sales price. The purchase price is
applied to the outstanding loan balance. Any remaining balance is charged-off,
which reduces the allowance for credit losses on loans. Charge-offs reflect the
realization of losses in the portfolio that were recognized previously through
the provision for credit losses on loans.

The Company's practice is to charge off estimated losses as soon as management
believes the uncollectability of a loan balance is confirmed and such losses are
reasonably quantified. Net charge-offs for the first quarter of 2022 were $851,
or 0.03% of average loans (annualized), compared to net charge-offs of $3,038,
or 0.11% of average loans (annualized), for the same period in 2021. The
charge-offs were fully reserved for in the Company's allowance for credit losses
on loans. Subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance for
credit losses on loans.

Allowance for Credit Losses on Loans; Provision for Credit Losses on Loans. The
allowance for credit losses is available to absorb credit losses inherent in the
loans held for investment portfolio. Management evaluates the adequacy of the
allowance on a quarterly basis.

The appropriate level of the allowance is based on an ongoing analysis of the
loan portfolio and represents an amount that management deems adequate to
provide for inherent losses, including loans evaluated on a collective (pooled)
basis and those evaluated on an individual basis as set forth in ASC 326. The
credit loss estimation process involves procedures to appropriately consider the
unique characteristics of the Company's loan portfolio segments. Credit quality
is assessed and monitored by evaluating various attributes, and the results of
those evaluations are utilized in underwriting new loans and in the Company's
process for the estimation of expected credit losses. Credit quality monitoring
procedures and indicators can include an assessment of problem loans, the types
of loans, historical loss experience, new lending products, emerging credit
trends, changes in the size and character of loan categories, and other factors,
including our risk rating system, regulatory guidance and economic conditions,
such as the unemployment rate and GDP growth in the national and local economies
as well as trends in the market values of underlying collateral securing loans,
all as determined based on input from management, loan review staff and other
sources. This evaluation is complex and inherently subjective, as it requires
estimates by management that are inherently uncertain and therefore susceptible
to significant revision as more information becomes available. In future
periods, evaluations of the overall loan portfolio, in light of the factors and
forecasts then prevailing, may result in significant changes in the allowance
and provision for credit loss in those future periods.

The methodology for estimating the amount of expected credit losses reported in
the allowance for credit losses has two basic components: first, a collective or
pooled component for estimated expected credit losses for pools of loans that
share similar risk characteristics; and second, an asset-specific component
involving individual loans that do not share risk characteristics with other
loans and the measurement of expected credit losses for such individual loans.

•The allowance for credit losses for loans that share similar risk
characteristics with other loans is calculated on a collective (or pooled)
basis, where such loans are segregated into loan portfolio segments based upon
similarity of credit risk. In determining the allowance for credit losses on
loans evaluated on a collective basis, the Company categorizes loan pools based
on loan type and/or risk rating. The Company uses two CECL models: (1) a loss
rate model, based on average
                                       61
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Table of Contents
historical life-of-loan loss rates, is used for the Real Estate - 1-4 Family
Mortgage, Real Estate - Construction and the Installment Loans to Individuals
portfolio segments, and (2) for the Commercial, Real Estate - Commercial
Mortgage and Lease Financing portfolio segments, the Company uses a probability
of default/loss given default model, which calculates an expected loss
percentage for each loan pool by considering (a) the probability of default,
based on the migration of loans from performing (using risk ratings) to default
using life-of-loan analysis periods, and (b) the historical severity of loss,
based on the aggregate net lifetime losses incurred per loan pool.

The historical loss rates calculated as described above are adjusted, as
necessary, for both internal and external qualitative factors where there are
differences in the historical loss data of the Company and current or projected
future conditions. Internal factors include loss history, changes in credit
quality (including movement between risk ratings) and/or credit concentration
and the nature and volume of the respective loan portfolio segments. External
factors include current and reasonable and supportable forecasted economic
conditions and changes in collateral values. These factors are used to adjust
the historical loss rates (as described above) to ensure that they reflect
management's expectation of future conditions based on a reasonable and
supportable forecast period. To the extent the lives of the loans in the
portfolio extend beyond the period for which a reasonable and supportable
forecast can be made, when necessary, the models immediately revert back to the
historical loss rates adjusted for qualitative factors related to current
conditions.

•For loans that do not share similar risk characteristics with other loans, an
individual analysis is performed to determine the expected credit loss. If the
respective loan is collateral dependent (that is, when the borrower is
experiencing financial difficulty and repayment is expected to be provided
substantially through the operation or sale of the collateral), the expected
credit loss is measured as the difference between the amortized cost basis of
the loan and the fair value of the collateral. The fair value of collateral is
initially based on external appraisals. Generally, collateral values for loans
for which measurement of expected losses is dependent on the fair value of such
collateral are updated every twelve months, either from external third parties
or in-house certified appraisers. Third-party appraisals are obtained from a
pre-approved list of independent, third-party, local appraisal firms. The fair
value of the collateral derived from the external appraisal is then adjusted for
the estimated cost to sell if repayment or satisfaction of a loan is dependent
on the sale (rather than only on the operation) of the collateral. Other
acceptable methods for determining the expected credit losses for individually
evaluated loans (typically used for loans that are not collateral dependent) is
a discounted cash flow approach or, if applicable, an observable market price.
Once the expected credit loss amount is determined, an allowance equal to such
expected credit loss is included in the allowance for credit losses.

In addition to its quarterly analysis of the allowance for credit losses, on a
regular basis management and the Board of Directors review loan ratios. These
ratios include the allowance for credit losses as a percentage of total loans,
net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans, the provision for credit
losses as a percentage of average loans, nonperforming loans as a percentage of
total loans and the allowance coverage on nonperforming loans, among others.
Also, management reviews past due ratios by officer, community bank and the
Company as a whole.

The following table presents the allocation of the allowance for credit losses
on loans by loan category and the percentage of loans in each category to total
loans as of the dates presented:

The provision for credit losses on loans charged to operating expense is an
amount which, in the judgment of management, is necessary to maintain the
allowance for credit losses on loans at a level that is believed to be adequate
to meet the inherent risks of losses in our loan portfolio. The Company recorded
a provision for credit losses of $1,500 during the first quarter of 2022, as
compared to no provision for credit losses recorded in the first quarter of
2021. The Company's allowance for credit losses model considers economic
projections, primarily the national unemployment rate and GDP, over a reasonable

Allowance for Credit Losses on Unfunded Commitments; Provision for Credit Losses
on Unfunded Commitments. The Company maintains a separate allowance for credit
losses on unfunded loan commitments, which is included in the "Other
liabilities" line item on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Management estimates
the amount of expected losses on unfunded loan commitments by calculating a
likelihood of funding over the contractual period for exposures that are not
unconditionally cancellable by the Company and applying the loss factors used in
the allowance for credit losses on loans methodology described above to unfunded
commitments for each loan type. No credit loss estimate is reported for
off-balance-sheet credit exposures that are unconditionally cancellable by the
Company. A roll-forward of the allowance for credit losses on unfunded
commitments is shown in the table below.

Nonperforming Assets. Nonperforming assets consist of nonperforming loans and
other real estate owned. Nonperforming loans are those on which the accrual of
interest has stopped or loans which are contractually 90 days past due on which
interest continues to accrue. Generally, the accrual of interest is discontinued
when the full collection of principal or interest is in doubt or when the
payment of principal or interest has been contractually 90 days past due, unless
the obligation is both well secured and in the process of collection.
Management, the problem asset resolution committee and our loan review staff
closely monitor loans that are considered to be nonperforming.

Other real estate owned consists of properties acquired through foreclosure or
acceptance of a deed in lieu of foreclosure. These properties are carried at the
lower of cost or fair market value based on appraised value less estimated
selling costs. Losses arising at the time of foreclosure of properties are
charged against the allowance for credit losses on loans. Reductions in the
carrying value subsequent to acquisition are charged to earnings and are
included in "Other real estate owned" in the Consolidated Statements of Income.

The following tables provide details of the Company's non purchased and purchased nonperforming assets as of the dates presented.

Total nonperforming loans as a percentage of total loans were 0.51% as of
March 31, 2022 as compared to 0.51% and 0.52% as of December 31, 2021 and
March 31, 2021, respectively. The Company's coverage ratio, or its allowance for

Management has evaluated the aforementioned loans and other loans classified as
nonperforming and believes that all nonperforming loans have been adequately
reserved for in the allowance for credit losses at March 31, 2022. Management
also continually monitors past due loans for potential credit quality
deterioration. Total loans 30-89 days past due but still accruing interest were
$30,617 at March 31, 2022 as compared to $27,604 at December 31, 2021 and
$21,801 at March 31, 2021.

Although not classified as nonperforming loans, restructured loans are another
category of assets that contribute to our credit risk. Restructured loans are
those for which concessions have been granted to the borrower due to a
deterioration of the borrower's financial condition and are performing in
accordance with the new terms. Such concessions may include reduction in
interest rates or deferral of interest or principal payments. In evaluating
whether to restructure a loan, management analyzes the long-term financial
condition of the borrower, including guarantor and collateral support, to
determine whether the proposed concessions will increase the likelihood of
repayment of principal and interest. Restructured loans that are not performing
in accordance with their restructured terms that are either contractually 90
days past due or placed on nonaccrual status are reported as nonperforming
loans.

As shown below, restructured loans totaled $25,320 at March 31, 2022 as compared
to $20,259 at December 31, 2021 and $20,370 at March 31, 2021. At March 31,
2022, loans restructured through interest rate concessions represented 23% of
total restructured loans, while loans restructured by a concession in payment
terms represented the remainder. The following table provides further details of
the Company's restructured loans in compliance with their modified terms as of
the dates presented:

Interest Rate Risk


Market risk is the risk of loss from adverse changes in market prices and rates.
The majority of assets and liabilities of a financial institution are monetary
in nature and therefore differ greatly from most commercial and industrial
companies that have significant investments in fixed assets and inventories. Our
market risk arises primarily from interest rate risk inherent in lending and
deposit-taking activities. Management believes a significant impact on the
Company's financial results stems from our ability to react to changes in
interest rates. A sudden and substantial change in interest rates may adversely
impact our earnings because the interest rates borne by assets and liabilities
do not change at the same speed, to the same extent or on the same basis.

Because of the impact of interest rate fluctuations on our profitability, the
Board of Directors and management actively monitor and manage our interest rate
risk exposure. We have an Asset/Liability Committee ("ALCO") that is authorized
by the Board of Directors to monitor our interest rate sensitivity and to make
decisions relating to that process. The ALCO's goal is to structure our
asset/liability composition to maximize net interest income while managing
interest rate risk so as to minimize the adverse impact of changes in interest
rates on net interest income and capital. The ALCO uses an asset/liability model
as the primary quantitative tool in measuring the amount of interest rate risk
associated with changing market rates. The model is used to perform both net
interest income forecast simulations for multiple year horizons and economic
value of equity ("EVE") analyses, each under various interest rate scenarios,
which could impact the results presented in the table below.

Net interest income simulations measure the short and medium-term earnings
exposure from changes in market interest rates in a rigorous and explicit
fashion. Our current financial position is combined with assumptions regarding
future business to calculate net interest income under various hypothetical rate
scenarios. EVE measures our long-term earnings exposure from changes in market
rates of interest. EVE is defined as the present value of assets minus the
present value of liabilities at a point in time for a given set of market rate
assumptions. An increase in EVE due to a specified rate change indicates an
improvement in the long-term earnings capacity of the balance sheet assuming
that the rate change remains in effect over the life of the current balance
sheet.

The following table presents the projected impact of a change in interest rates
on (1) static EVE and (2) earnings at risk (that is, net interest income) for
the 1-12 and 13-24 month periods commencing April 1, 2022, in each case as
compared to the result under rates present in the market on March 31, 2022. The
changes in interest rates assume an instantaneous and parallel shift in the
yield curve and do not account for changes in the slope of the yield curve.

The rate shock results for the net interest income simulations for the next
twenty-four months produce an asset sensitive position at March 31, 2022 and are
all within the parameters set by the Board of Directors. The preceding measures
assume no change in the size or asset/liability compositions of the balance
sheet, and they do not reflect future actions the ALCO may undertake in response
to such changes in interest rates.

The scenarios assume instantaneous movements in interest rates in increments of
plus 100, 200, 300 and 400. As interest rates are adjusted over a period of
time, it is our strategy to proactively change the volume and mix of our balance
sheet in order to mitigate our interest rate risk. The computation of the
prospective effects of hypothetical interest rate changes requires numerous
assumptions, including asset prepayment speeds, the impact of competitive
factors on our pricing of loans and deposits, how responsive our deposit
repricing is to the change in market rates and the expected life of non-maturity
deposits. These business assumptions are based upon our experience, business
plans and published industry experience; however, such assumptions may not
necessarily reflect the manner or timing in which cash flows, asset yields and
liability costs respond to changes in market rates. Because these assumptions
are inherently uncertain, actual results will differ from simulated results.

The Company utilizes derivative financial instruments, including interest rate
contracts such as swaps, caps and/or floors, forward commitments, and interest
rate lock commitments, as part of its ongoing efforts to mitigate its interest
rate risk exposure. For more information about the Company's derivatives, see
the information under the heading "Loan Commitments and Other Off-Balance Sheet
Arrangements" in the Liquidity and Capital Resources section below and Note 10,
"Derivative Instruments," in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of
the Company in Item 1, Financial Statements.

Liquidity and Capital Resources


Liquidity management is the ability to meet the cash flow requirements of
customers who may be either depositors wishing to withdraw funds or borrowers
needing assurance that sufficient funds will be available to meet their credit
needs.

Core deposits, which are deposits excluding time deposits greater than $250,000,
are the major source of funds used by the Bank to meet cash flow needs.
Maintaining the ability to acquire these funds as needed in a variety of markets
is the key to assuring the Bank's liquidity. Management continually monitors the
Bank's liquidity and non-core dependency ratios to ensure compliance with
targets established by the Asset/Liability Management Committee.

Our investment portfolio is another alternative for meeting liquidity needs.
These assets generally have readily available markets that offer conversions to
cash as needed. Within the next twelve months, the securities portfolio is
forecasted to generate cash flow through principal payments and maturities equal
to approximately 13.31% of the carrying value of the total securities portfolio.
Securities within our investment portfolio are also used to secure certain
deposit types, short-term borrowings and derivative instruments. At March 31,
2022, securities with a carrying value of $702,992 were pledged to secure public
fund deposits and as collateral for short-term borrowings and derivative
instruments as compared to securities with a carrying value of $629,174
similarly pledged at December 31, 2021.

Other sources available for meeting liquidity needs include federal funds
purchased and short-term and long-term advances from the FHLB. Interest is
charged at the prevailing market rate on federal funds purchased and FHLB
advances. There were $100,000 in short-term borrowings from the FHLB at
March 31, 2022, as compared to no such borrowings at December 31, 2021.
Long-term funds obtained from the FHLB are used to match-fund fixed rate loans
in order to minimize interest rate risk and also are used to meet day-to-day
liquidity needs, particularly when the cost of such borrowing compares favorably
to the rates that we would be required to pay to attract deposits. At March 31,
2022, the balance of our outstanding long-term advances with the FHLB was $408
compared to $417 at December 31, 2021. The total amount of the remaining credit
available to us from the FHLB at March 31, 2022 was $4,047,128. We also maintain
lines of credit with other commercial banks totaling $180,000. These are
unsecured lines of credit with the majority maturing at various times within the
next twelve months. There were no amounts outstanding under these lines of
credit at March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021.

Finally, we can access the capital markets to meet liquidity needs, as we did in
2016, 2020 and 2021 in the form of subordinated notes. The Company maintains a
shelf registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission
("SEC"). The shelf registration statement, which was effective upon filing,
allows the Company to raise capital from time to time through the sale of common
stock, preferred stock, depositary shares, debt securities, rights, warrants and
units, or a combination thereof, subject to market conditions. Specific terms
and prices will be determined at the time of any offering under a separate
prospectus supplement that the Company will file with the SEC at the time of the
specific offering. The proceeds of the sale of securities, if and when offered,
will be used for general corporate purposes or as otherwise described in the
prospectus supplement applicable to the offering and could include the expansion
of the Company's banking, insurance and wealth management operations as well as
other business opportunities. The carrying value of the subordinated notes, net
of unamortized debt issuance costs, was $323,490 at March 31, 2022. We redeemed
$30,000 of subordinated notes in the first quarter of 2022.

Our strategy in choosing funds is focused on minimizing cost in the context of
our balance sheet composition and interest rate risk position. Accordingly,
management targets growth of noninterest-bearing deposits. While we do not
control the types of deposit instruments our clients choose, we do influence
those choices with the rates and the deposit specials we offer. We constantly
monitor our funds position and evaluate the effect that various funding sources
have on our financial position.

Cash and cash equivalents were $1,607,493 at March 31, 2022, as compared to
$1,261,916 at March 31, 2021. Cash used in investing activities for the three
months ended March 31, 2022 was $584,800, as compared to cash provided by
investing activities of $29,466 for the three months ended March 31, 2021.
Proceeds from the sale, maturity or call of securities within our investment
portfolio were $135,775 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, as compared
to $250,773 for the same period in 2021. These proceeds were primarily
reinvested into the investment portfolio. Purchases of investment securities
were $365,069 for the first three months of 2022, as compared to $465,245 for
the same period in 2021.

Cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2022
was $108,512, as compared to $656,035 for the same period in 2021. Deposits
increased $85,173 and $677,827 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and
2021, respectively.

Restrictions on Bank Dividends, Loans and Advances


The Company's liquidity and capital resources, as well as its ability to pay
dividends to its shareholders, are substantially dependent on the ability of the
Renasant Bank to transfer funds to the Company in the form of dividends, loans
and advances. Under Mississippi law, a Mississippi bank may not pay dividends
unless its earned surplus is in excess of three times capital stock. A
Mississippi bank with earned surplus in excess of three times capital stock may
pay a dividend, subject to the approval of the Mississippi Department of Banking
and Consumer Finance (the "DBCF"). In addition, the FDIC also has the authority
to prohibit the Bank from engaging in business practices that the FDIC considers
to be unsafe or unsound, which, depending on the financial condition of the
bank, could include the payment of dividends. Accordingly, the approval of the
DBCF is required prior to the Bank paying dividends to the Company, and under
certain circumstances the approval of the FDIC may be required.

                                       70
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Table of Contents
Federal Reserve regulations also limit the amount the Bank may loan to the
Company unless such loans are collateralized by specific obligations. At
March 31, 2022, the maximum amount available for transfer from the Bank to the
Company in the form of loans was $171,473. The Company maintains a $3,000 line
of credit collateralized by cash with the Bank. There were no amounts
outstanding under this line of credit at March 31, 2022.

These restrictions did not have any impact on the Company's ability to meet its
cash obligations in the three months ended March 31, 2022, nor does management
expect such restrictions to materially impact the Company's ability to meet its
currently-anticipated cash obligations.

Loan Commitments and Other Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements


The Company enters into loan commitments and standby letters of credit in the
normal course of its business. Loan commitments are made to accommodate the
financial needs of the Company's customers. Standby letters of credit commit the
Company to make payments on behalf of customers when certain specified future
events occur. Both arrangements have credit risk essentially the same as that
involved in extending loans to customers and are subject to the Company's normal
credit policies, including establishing a provision for credit losses on
unfunded commitments. Collateral (e.g., securities, receivables, inventory,
equipment, etc.) is obtained based on management's credit assessment of the
customer.

Loan commitments and standby letters of credit do not necessarily represent future cash requirements of the Company in that while the borrower has the ability to draw upon these commitments at any time, these commitments often expire without being drawn upon. The Company's unfunded loan commitments and standby letters of credit outstanding were as follows as of the dates presented:


                               March 31, 2022       December 31, 2021
Loan commitments              $     3,254,402      $        3,104,940
Standby letters of credit              89,723                  89,830



The Company closely monitors the amount of remaining future commitments to
borrowers in light of prevailing economic conditions and adjusts these
commitments and the provision related thereto as necessary. The Company will
continue this process as new commitments are entered into or existing
commitments are renewed. For a more detailed discussion related to the allowance
and provision for credit losses on unfunded loan commitments, refer to the "Risk
Management" section above.

The Company utilizes derivative financial instruments, including interest rate
contracts such as swaps, caps and/or floors, as part of its ongoing efforts to
mitigate its interest rate risk exposure and to facilitate the needs of its
customers. The Company enters into derivative instruments that are not
designated as hedging instruments to help its commercial customers manage their
exposure to interest rate fluctuations. To mitigate the interest rate risk
associated with these customer contracts, the Company enters into an offsetting
derivative contract position with other financial institutions. The Company
manages its credit risk, or potential risk of default by its commercial
customers, through credit limit approval and monitoring procedures. At March 31,
2022, the Company had notional amounts of $179,648 on interest rate contracts
with corporate customers and $179,648 in offsetting interest rate contracts with
other financial institutions to mitigate the Company's rate exposure on its
corporate customers' contracts and certain fixed rate loans.

Additionally, the Company enters into interest rate lock commitments with its
customers to mitigate the interest rate risk associated with the commitments to
fund fixed-rate and adjustable rate residential mortgage loans and also enters
into forward commitments to sell residential mortgage loans to secondary market
investors.

The Company also enters into forward interest rate swap contracts on its FHLB
borrowings and its junior subordinated debentures that are accounted for as cash
flow hedges. Under each of these contracts, the Company pays a fixed rate of
interest and receives a variable rate of interest based on the three-month or
one-month LIBOR plus a predetermined spread. The Company entered into an
interest rate swap contract on its subordinated notes that is accounted for as a
fair value hedge. Under this contract, the Company pays a variable rate of
interest based on the three-month LIBOR plus a predetermined spread and receives
a fixed rate of interest.

For more information about the Company's derivatives, see Note 10, "Derivative
Instruments," in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company
in Item 1, Financial Statements.


Shareholders' Equity and Regulatory Matters

                                       71
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Table of Contents
Total shareholders' equity of the Company was $2,137,642 at March 31, 2022
compared to $2,209,853 at December 31, 2021. Book value per share was $38.25 and
$39.63 at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The decrease in
shareholders' equity was attributable to changes in accumulated other
comprehensive income and dividends declared, partially offset by current period
earnings.

On October 26, 2021, the Company's Board of Directors approved a new stock
repurchase program, authorizing the Company to repurchase up to $50,000 of its
outstanding common stock, either in open market purchases or
privately-negotiated transactions. The new repurchase program will remain in
effect for one year or, if earlier, the repurchase of the entire amount of
common stock authorized to be repurchased. The Company did not repurchase any of
its common stock under the stock repurchase plan in the first quarter of 2022.

The Company has junior subordinated debentures with a carrying value of $111,518
at March 31, 2022, of which $107,927 is included in the Company's Tier 1
capital. Federal Reserve guidelines limit the amount of securities that, similar
to our junior subordinated debentures, are includable in Tier 1 capital, but
these guidelines did not impact the debentures we include in Tier 1 capital at
March 31, 2022. Although our existing junior subordinated debentures are
currently unaffected by these Federal Reserve guidelines, on account of changes
enacted as part of the Dodd-Frank Act, any new trust preferred securities are
not includable in Tier 1 capital. Further, if as a result of an acquisition of a
financial institution we exceed $15,000,000 in assets, or if we make any
acquisition of a financial institution after we have exceeded $15,000,000 in
assets, we will lose Tier 1 treatment of our junior subordinated debentures.

The Company has subordinated notes with a par value of $340,000 at March 31, 2022, of which $335,244 is included in the Company's Tier 2 capital.


The Federal Reserve, the FDIC and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency
have issued guidelines governing the levels of capital that bank holding
companies and banks must maintain. Those guidelines specify capital tiers, which
include the following classifications:

                                                    Tier 1 Capital to                                                 Tier 1 Capital to

The Company has elected to take advantage of transitional relief offered by the
Federal Reserve and FDIC to delay for two years the estimated impact of CECL on
regulatory capital, followed by a three-year transitional period to phase out
the capital benefit provided by the two-year delay. The three-year transitional
period began on January1, 2022.

Company and Renasant Bank, please refer to Note 15, "Regulatory Matters," in the

Critical Accounting Estimates

We have identified certain accounting estimates which involve significant judgment and estimates which can have a material impact on our financial condition or results of operations. Our accounting policies are more fully described in Note 1,

                                       73

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Table of Contents


"Significant Accounting Policies," in the Notes to Consolidated Financial
Statements of the Company in Item 8, Financial Statements and Supplementary
Data, in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021,
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 25, 2022. Actual
amounts and values as of the balance sheet dates may be materially different
than the amounts and values reported due to the inherent uncertainty in the
estimation process. Also, future amounts and values could differ materially from
those estimates due to changes in values and circumstances after the balance
sheet date.

The critical accounting estimates which we believe to be the most critical in
preparing our consolidated financial statements relate to allowance for credit
losses and acquisition accounting, which are described under "Critical
Accounting Policies and Estimates" in Item 7, Management's Discussion and
Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, in our Annual Report
on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. Since December 31, 2021,
there have been no material changes in these critical accounting estimates.


Non-GAAP Financial Measures


In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted
accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"), this document
contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, namely, an adjusted efficiency
ratio and the allowance for credit losses on loans to total loans, excluding PPP
loans (the "adjusted allowance ratio"). The adjusted allowance ratio only
excludes PPP loans; the adjusted efficiency ratio adjusts GAAP financial
measures to exclude the amortization of intangible assets and certain items
(such as, among others, merger and conversion related expenses, COVID-19 related
expenses, restructuring benefit, and a recovery of a portion of the reserve for
unfunded commitments, gains on sales of securities and asset valuation
adjustments) with respect to which the Company is unable to accurately predict
when these items will be incurred or, when incurred, the amount thereof. With
respect to COVID-19 related expenses in particular, management added these
expenses as a charge to exclude when calculating non-GAAP financial measures
because the expenses included within this line item are readily quantifiable and
possess the same characteristics with respect to management's inability to
accurately predict the timing or amount thereof as the other items excluded when
calculating non-GAAP financial measures. Management uses the adjusted efficiency
ratio when evaluating capital utilization and adequacy, while it uses the
adjusted allowance ratio to determine the adequacy of our allowance with respect
to loans not fully guaranteed by the U.S. Small Business Administration. In
addition, the Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures facilitate the
making of period-to-period comparisons and are meaningful indicators of its
operating performance, particularly because these measures are widely used by
industry analysts for companies with merger and acquisition activities. Also,
because the amortization of intangible assets and items such as restructuring
charges and COVID-19 related expenses can vary extensively from company to
company and, as to intangible assets, are excluded from the calculation of a
financial institution's regulatory capital, the Company believes that the
presentation of this non-GAAP financial information allows readers to more
easily compare the Company's results to information provided in other regulatory
reports and the results of other companies. The reconciliations from GAAP to
non-GAAP for these financial measures are below.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be
considered in isolation or as a substitute for any measure prepared in
accordance with GAAP. Readers of this Form 10-Q should note that, because there
are no standard definitions for the calculations as well as the results, the
Company's calculations may not be comparable to a similarly-titled measure
presented by other companies. Also, there may be limits in the usefulness of
this measure to readers of this document. As a result, the Company encourages
readers to consider its consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto
in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.
