Enviroscore Client Makes Top Listing

MidSouth National Bank is Named Top Performing Small Cap Bank

Baton Rouge, LA, July 19, 2007: Louisiana based MidSouth National Bank has been named one of the country's top performing small capitalization banks by the investment banking firm of Sandler O'Neill + Partners. MidSouth Bank has seen high growth in the last few years and has recently branched out into the Texas market. MidSouth was one of 24 banks to make the list. The list was open to banks with a market cap of less than $2 billion.

In announcing the 2007 list, Sandler O’Neill Partners called the institutions’ performance metrics outstanding, noting that they delivered bottom line results that are markedly better than the industry as a whole. Specifically, in the last 12 months, the Sm All-Stars team’s deposit growth and loan growth were 20.6 percent and 23.9 percent, respectively, compared to 7.5 percent and 9.9 percent for its peers.

"What Sandler O’Neill aims to do is get the jump on helping investors uncover the next generation of leading mid-cap banks and thrifts, in essence hinting at who they may be before they are discovered by Wall Street and the rest of the world", said MidSouth Bancorp President and Chief Executive Officer C.R. Rusty Cloutier. "This is an exciting opportunity to have the respected firm shine the spotlight on us, a bank it has never before covered in its research reports", he continued. "It puts us in a new arena, and we plan to maintain the integrity of the list by continuing to outperform our peers in every way possible."

"We are very proud to be part of the Midsouth Bank Team.", Diane Baum, CEO of Enviroscore remarked. "We are looking forward to growing with MidSouth Bank and offering the best and most afforable environmental solutions for commercial loans to the bank and its customers."
