LETTER FROM TRACY FRENCH:Few would disagree that 2020 was a year of many challenges,including painful times for our nation as a whole and for ourfriends and neighbors. Here at Centennial Bank, we willremember the year not only for its difficulties, but also for theway our team members rose to the call to help our communitiesget through these tough times together.We saw unforgettable moments for more than 400 of ourbankers whose support of the Paycheck Protection Programhelped our customers, over and over again, to save theirbusinesses and all the jobs that depended on them.In a time of crisis, we saw our team step up more than ever, as we reimagined how to effectivelywork with and care for our customers, employees and shareholders.And in the midst of serious trials, there were significant successes as well.Our continued focus on ‘Best in Class’ performance metrics resulted in being named to theForbes list of ‘World’s Best Banks’ as well as securing a spot on Forbes ‘Best Banks in America’for the 7th straight year.During one of the hardest years for business and the economy, I’m proud of how our bankersworked to assist their customers in their time of need while still churning out impressive best-inclass numbers throughout the year. That strength is vital: it guarantees Centennial Bank’s abilityto continue to be the bank our customers can rely on, as stable in hard years as in good ones.In 2020, we also became more intentional about our focus on disclosing our efforts surroundingenvironmental, social and governance aspects of our business.As we move into a new year with the hope of better times ahead for our communities,Centennial Bank continues its focus on customer service, shareholder return and the importantpillars of corporate social responsibility.It is always an honor to serve the people of our communities, but perhaps never more so than intimes such as these. We look forward to continuing to support and safeguard your journey toopportunity and prosperity.Sincerely,Tracy FrenchPresident and CEOCentennial Bank2

PANDEMIC RESPONSESupporting our customers, team members and communities during COVID-19CENTENNIAL BANK took a variety of steps to support individuals and businesses impacted by the economic shock ofCOVID-19.

Mobile banking allows customers to manage their accounts anywhere, at any time. The federal government created the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) through the Small BusinessAdministration to help businesses keep their workforce employed during COVID-19. Because PPP was anewly created program, the process had to be built from the ground up. Over 400 of Centennial Bank’semployees were involved in this process. In 2020, Centennial Bank closed over 8,500 loans, and we continueto participate in the program, which has helped save tens of thousands of jobs. Deferred Payments – Centennial Bank offered payment deferrals to customers so their businesses couldcontinue to operate during this unprecedented time.SUPPORTING OUR EMPLOYEES Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) was putinto place quickly for all branch locations andstaff as a precaution/safety enhancement.

PANDEMIC RESPONSESupporting our customers, team members and communities during COVID-19BUSINESS CONTINUITY ENGAGEMENT Hurricane Michael devastated the Alabama/Florida coast in 2018. The Mexico City Beach branch wasdamaged and had to be completely rebuilt. Centennial Bank used the mobile Interactive Teller Machine(ITM) to provide services to the disaster area until the branch could be reopened in 2020. The small,coastal community was without any bank and the mobile ITM was a great resource for a community inneed. The ITM provided a “real-time teller” to the customers and allowed for services such as checkcashing, loan payments, transfers and more. Crisis Communications Team (CCT) was created and activatedfor response and recovery efforts. Satellite phones were purchased to ensure communicationsafter disasters. In 2019, the CEN-SAFE Hotline was created. This emergencyhotline was born out of the need for communication after arecent hurricane hit Florida. This useful tool can be used foremployees to ‘mark themselves safe’ as well as to retrieveimportant information from the bank.EMPLOYEE HIGHLIGHTSTORI WHITEBusiness Continuity Program Manager, Conway ARTori started at the bank in 2017 as the business continuity specialist, when the businesscontinuity program was first developed.
