DALLAS -- February 8, 2013

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie
Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are
investigating the sale of First M&F Corp. (“FMFC”) (NasdaqGS: FMFC) to
Renasant Corp. for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed merger, FMFC
shareholders will receive 0.6425 shares of Renasant common stock for each
share of FMFC stock owned, which based on Renasant’s 10-day average closing
price (as of February 4), is valued at approximately $12.35 per share.

The FMFC sale investigation centers on whether FMFC’s shareholders are
receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the proposed going private
deal, whether the transaction undervalues FMFC’s stock, and whether FMFC’s
board attempted to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior
to agreeing to the deal. According to shareholder rights attorney Patrick
Powers, “based on the nature of this stock for stock transaction and other
factors, we believe this transaction may undervalue FMFC’s stock. Our proposed
lawsuit will seek to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders.”
