Increased Earnings and Record Deposits at FNB

Continued loan demand, record deposits, and a favorable net interest
margin added up to $10.2 million in total earnings during third quarter 2001, reported D.H. Cuddy, chairman and president First National Bank Alaska. The figure represents a 16% increase over the same time last year when total earnings were $8.8 million.

According to Cuddy, third quarter earnings equaled $29.17 per share, up
from $24.28 per share for third quarter 2000. Outstanding loans reached $895 million, exceeding the same mark of the period last year by $127 million, when outstanding loans totaled $768 million. Total deposits reached an all time reported high at $1.05 billion, a $81 million increase over September 30, 2000, when deposits were $969 million. Assets grew to $1.78 billion.

Our employees have done an excellent job of identifying and
meeting the needs of Alaskans during the uncertainty of this years economy, said Cuddy.
