FB Financial Corporation Announces Expected Effect of Reduction in Federal Corporate Tax Rate and Fourth Quarter Earnings Release Dates


Reduction in Net Deferred Tax Liability Expected to Benefit Fourth Quarter Net Income by $5.0 - $7.5 Million

2018 Effective Tax Rate Estimated at 24.5% - 25.5%

Announces 2017 Fourth Quarter and Year End Earnings Call on January 23, 2018

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FB Financial Corporation (“FB Financial” or “the Company”) (NYSE: FBK) announced today that the reduction in the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% mandated by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted on December 22, 2017, will benefit fourth quarter 2017 net income by approximately $5.0 million to $7.5 million ($0.16 to $0.24 cents per diluted share) due to a reduction in its net deferred tax liability.

The reduction in the Company’s net deferred tax liability is driven by the requirement that the Company’s deferred tax assets and liabilities be valued at year end 2017 at the newly enacted lower federal tax rate. Furthermore, the Company anticipates its effective tax rate will be approximately 24.5% to 25.5% for the year ending December 31, 2018, which reflects the newly enacted federal tax rate of 21%, projected 2018 nontaxable income, the estimated benefit of deductions for equity-based compensation and the Company’s historic effective state and local income tax rates.

Additionally, the Company announced today that it will release its 2017 fourth quarter and year end results on Monday, January 22, 2018, after the close of the market. The Company will host a fourth quarter and year end earnings conference call at 8:00 a.m. CST on Tuesday, January 23, 2018.
