FOOTNOTES:
 

(1)

On December 17, 2012, Boston Private Bank & Trust Company announced that it had entered into an agreement to sell its three offices in the Pacific Northwest region. Accordingly, the assets and liabilities to be sold as part of this transaction have been classified as held for sale at December 31, 2012. Within loans held for sale on the consolidated balance sheet, $276.7 million of the balance at December 31, 2012 relate to the Pacific Northwest transaction. All of the deposits held for sale at December 31, 2012 relate to the Pacific Northwest transaction. All other assets and liabilities that will be included in the Pacific Northwest transaction have been classified as other assets held for sale or other liabilities held for sale and are included within other assets or other liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2012.
 

(2)

In the second quarter of 2012, the Company completed the sale of its affiliate Davidson Trust Company. In 2009, the Company completed the sale of its affiliates Boston Private Value Investors, Inc.; Sand Hill Advisors, LLC; RINET Company, LLC; Gibraltar Private Bank & Trust Company; and Westfield Capital Management Company, LLC. Accordingly, prior period and current financial information related to the divested companies are included with discontinued operations.
 

(3)

Adjustments to Net Income/(Loss) Attributable to the Company to arrive at Net Income/(Loss) Attributable to the Common Shareholders, as presented in these tables, include decrease/ (increase) in Noncontrolling Interests Redemption Value and Dividends on Participating Securities.

 

(4)

When the Company has positive Net Income from Continuing Operations Attributable to the Common Shareholders, the Company adds additional shares to Basic Weighted Average Shares Outstanding to arrive at Diluted Weighted Average Shares Outstanding for the Diluted Earnings Per Share calculation to reflect the assumed exercise, conversion, or contingent issuance of dilutive securities. If the additional shares would result in anti-dilution they would be excluded from the Diluted Earning Per Share calculation. The potential dilutive shares relate to: unexercised stock options, unvested non-participating restricted stock, unexercised stock warrants, and unconverted Convertible Trust Preferred securities. The amount of shares that were anti-dilutive for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012 was 0.3 million in both periods. The amount of shares that were anti-dilutive for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011 were 1.5 million in both periods. The amount of shares that were anti-dilutive for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was 0.8 million. See Part II. Item 8. "Financial Statements and Supplementary Data - Note 1: Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 for additional information.

 

(5)

The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as: Tangible Book Value; the Tangible Common Equity ("TCE") to Tangible Assets ("TA") ratio; the TCE to Risk Weighted Assets ratio; pre-tax, pre-provision earnings; and operating expenses excluding restructuring costs to provide information for investors to effectively analyze financial trends of ongoing business activities, and to enhance comparability with peers across the financial sector.
 
Reconciliations from the Company's GAAP Total Equity to Total Assets ratio to the Non-GAAP TCE to TA ratio, and the Non-GAAP TCE to Risk Weighted Assets ratio, and from GAAP Book Value to Non-GAAP Tangible Book Value are presented below:
 
The Company calculates Tangible Assets by adjusting Total Assets to exclude Goodwill and Intangible Assets.

 

The Company calculates Tangible Common Equity by adjusting Total Equity to exclude Goodwill and Intangible Assets, net and includes the difference between Redemption Value and value per ASC 810, Consolidation ("ASC 810"), for Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests.
