TIB's 30th Anniversary

IBAT
congratulates The Independent Bankers Bank (TIB) which celebrated its 30 year
anniversary at its annual shareholders' meeting in Irving last week. "It
was a truly memorable event with over 250 shareholders, directors and past
directors in attendance," said IBAT President and CEO Chris Williston.

And
there was plenty to celebrate, including TIB's record consolidated net income
of $15.9 million and a record-setting return of revenue to TIB customer banks
of $25.5 million. TIB now boasts customer banks in all 50 states and Guam.

IBAT
was instrumental in passing legislation in the 1981 Texas Legislative
session that authorized the creation of the Bankers Bank.
