Highlight of Business Operations:

The aggregate market value of the registrant s common stock (“Common Stock”) held by non-affiliates is approximately $1.2 billion (based on the June 30, 2010 closing price of Common Stock of $47.47 per share). As of January 31, 2011, there were 68,274,150 shares of Common Stock outstanding.

Substantially all of the deposits held by the Banks are insured up to applicable limits by the Deposit Insurance Fund (“DIF”) of the FDIC and are subject to deposit insurance assessments to maintain the DIF. The FDIC utilizes a risk-based assessment system that imposes insurance premiums based upon a risk matrix that takes into account a bank s capital level and supervisory rating (“CAMELS rating”). The risk matrix includes four risk categories, distinguished by capital levels and supervisory ratings. For large Risk Category 1 institutions (generally those with assets in excess of $10 billion) that have long-term debt issuer ratings, including Bank of Oklahoma, assessment rates are determined from weighted-average CAMELS component ratings and long-term debt issuer ratings. The minimum annualized assessment rate for large institutions is 12 basis points per $100 of deposits and the maximum annualized assessment rate for large institutions is 50 basis points per $100 of deposits. Quarterly assessment rates for large institutions in Risk Category 1 may vary within this range depending upon changes in CAMELS component ratings and long-term debt issuer ratings.

On November 12, 2009 the board of directors of the FDIC voted to require insured institutions to prepay over three years of estimated insurance assessments on December 30, 2009 in order to strengthen the cash position of the DIF. As of December 31, 2009 and each quarter thereafter, the regular quarterly assessment will be applied against the prepaid assessment until the asset is exhausted. Any prepaid assessment not exhausted as of June 30, 2013 will be returned. Collectively, the Banks prepaid $78 million of deposit insurance assessments. As of December 31, 2010, $57 million of prepaid deposit insurance assessments are included in Other assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheet of the Company.

The primary source of liquidity for BOK Financial is dividends from the Banks, which are limited by various banking regulations to net profits, as defined, for the year plus retained profits for the preceding two years and further restricted by minimum capital requirements. In consideration of our bank charter consolidation, Bank of Oklahoma, N.A. declared and paid a dividend of $175 million to BOK Financial Corporation for general corporate purposes. Subsequent to the consolidation of the existing bank charters into BOKF, NA, based on the most restrictive limitations as well as management s internal capital policy, BOKF, NA had excess regulatory capital and could declare up to $82 million of dividends without regulatory approval as of January 1, 2011. This amount is not necessarily indicative of amounts that may be available to be paid in future periods.
