  1st Source Corporation Reports Record Annual Earnings, History of Increased
  Dividends Continues

Business Wire

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- January 22, 2013

1st Source Corporation (Nasdaq:SRCE), parent company of 1st Source Bank, today
announced record net income of $49.63 million for the year of 2012, an
increase of 2.98% over the $48.20 million in 2011. The annual net income sets
a record as the highest in company history. Fourth quarter net income was
$12.35 million, up 10.41% compared to $11.18 million in the fourth quarter of
2011, due to higher mortgage banking income along with reduced loan and lease
collection and repossession expenses.

Diluted net income per common share for the year was $2.02, an all-time record
and an increase of 3.06% over the $1.96 per common share a year earlier.
Diluted net income per common share for the fourth quarter was $0.50, up
11.11% compared to $0.45 per common share reported in the fourth quarter of
the previous year.

At the January 2013 meeting, the Board of Directors approved a cash dividend
of $0.17 per common share. The cash dividend is payable on February 15, 2013
to shareholders of record on February 4, 2013. Dividends for 2012 increased
3.13% over the previous year and achieved 25 years of consecutive dividend
growth.

Christopher J. Murphy, III, Chairman of 1st Source, commented, "In spite of
the rocky economy, 2012 was a good year for 1st Source Corporation. We set a
record for annual net income. We continue our record of 25 years of
consecutive dividend growth which puts us in a very select group nationally.”

“We also had a busy fourth quarter. New banking centers were opened in
Nappanee and Columbia City, Indiana; mobile banking and purchase rewards for
our checking account clients were rolled out; and 1st Source Mortgage Express
was introduced – a quick and easy online mortgage application that is
especially handy for our clients wishing to refinance.”

“Credit continues to improve. Our 30 day delinquency rate ended 2012 at 0.16%
of total loans and leases; our net charge-offs for 2012 were 0.13% to average
net loans and leases; while our net charge-offs in dollars were $4.09 million
compared to $8.36 million a year earlier. Credit performance is strong, but
our net interest margin is being squeezed. We continue to focus on controlling
expenses to compensate.”

“At 1st Source, we strive to be distinctively convenient, provide straight
talk and sound advice for our clients, and always keep their best interests in
mind – treating them in a very personal way. I am proud of what my colleagues
throughout the Bank have accomplished this year. It is their focus and
dedication to serving our clients well that has led to our success.” Mr.
Murphy concluded.

The net interest margin was 3.64% for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus 3.66%
for the same period in 2011. The net interest margin was 3.69% for the years
ending December 31, 2012 and 2011. Tax-equivalent net interest income was
$39.00 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $37.89 million for
2011’s fourth quarter. For the twelve months of 2012, tax-equivalent net
interest income was $153.84 million, compared to $150.91 million for the
twelve months of 2011.

As of December 31, 2012, the common equity-to-assets ratio was 12.28%,
compared to 11.98% at December 31, 2011 and its tangible common
equity-to-tangible assets ratio was 10.56% at December 31, 2012 compared to
10.18% at December 31, 2011. Common shareholders’ equity was $558.66 million,
up from $523.92 million a year ago. Total assets at the end of 2012 were $4.55
billion, up 4.04% from the same period last year. Total loans and leases at
December 31, 2012 were $3.33 billion, up 7.67%, and total deposits at December
31, 2012 were $3.62 billion, up 2.96% from the comparable figures at the end
of 2011.

Reserve for loan and lease losses as of December 31, 2012 was 2.50% of total
loans and leases, compared to 2.64% as of December 31, 2011. Net charge-offs
were $0.98 million for the fourth quarter 2012, compared to $2.17 million in
the fourth quarter 2011. Net charge-offs for the full year were $4.09 million
in 2012 compared to $8.36 million in 2011. The ratio of nonperforming assets
to net loans and leases was 1.25% on December 31, 2012, compared to 2.28% on
December 31, 2011.

Noninterest income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $20.57 million, up 1.52%
compared to $20.27 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The fourth quarter
increase was a result of higher mortgage banking income and investment
securities and other investment gains offset by lower equipment rental income.
For the year, noninterest income was $81.19 million, up slightly from the
$80.87 million in 2011. The year-to-date increase was due to higher mortgage
banking income and insurance commissions reduced by lower equipment rental
income and investment securities and other investment gains.

Noninterest expense for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $39.72 million, down
2.62% compared to $40.79 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The leading
factors for the fourth quarter decrease were reduced depreciation on leased
equipment and lower loan and lease collection and repossession expenses offset
by higher salary and employee benefits expense. For the year ending December
31, 2012, noninterest expense was $151.54 million, down from $152.35 million
one year ago. The annual difference was a result of reduced depreciation on
leased equipment, reductions to provisions for unfunded loan commitments, loan
and lease collection and repossession expenses, and lower net occupancy
expenses. These decreases were  offset by increased salary and employee
benefit expenses and furniture and equipment expenses.
