    Average first-quarter loan and lease balances, excluding FDIC-covered
    loans, grew to $14.8 billion, up 19 percent from the first quarter of last
    year.
  *First-quarter deposit balances averaged $22.4 billion, up 11 percent from
    the first quarter of 2012. Average core deposits, which equal 97 percent
    of total balances, were up 12 percent from the first quarter of 2012.
  *Revenue for the first quarter of 2013 reached $294.6 million, up 7 percent
    from the year-ago period but down 3 percent from the fourth quarter of
    2012.
  *Excluding FDIC-covered loans, first-quarter 2013 results included no
    provision for loan and lease losses.City National recorded no provision
    in the first quarter of 2012 and a $7.0million provision in the fourth
    quarter of 2012.The company remains appropriately reserved at 1.86
    percent of total loans, excluding FDIC-covered loans.
  *City National's assets under management or administration grew to $59.0
    billion, up 18percent from the first quarter of 2012 and 4 percent from

    up 39 percent from the first quarter of 2012 and 6percent higher than the
    fourth quarter of 2012.

"City National continued to grow revenue and net income in the first quarter,
thanks to strong loan production, sound credit quality and the addition of new
clients across the bank," said President and CEO Russell Goldsmith."Earnings
increased despite low interest rates pressuring asset yields and a modest
seasonal reduction in deposits.The fundamental strength of our business and
our organization is evident in the fact that loans, deposits and noninterest
income all grew at double-digit rates from the first quarter of
2012.Expenses, excluding two acquisitions, declined slightly even as we
continued to invest in the company's future growth with the strategic addition
of talented colleagues, innovative products, state-of-the-art technology and
five new offices that will open this year.

"City National has now been profitable in every quarter for 20 consecutive
years, and the company has more capital, capabilities, talent, resources and
opportunities than ever before. All in all, it was a good quarter."

ASSETS

Total assets at March 31, 2013 were $27.4 billion, up 14 percent from the
first quarter of 2012, but down 4 percent from the fourth quarter of last
year.The change from the fourth quarter reflects a seasonal decline in
deposits, which led to lower levels of securities.

NET INTEREST INCOME

Fully taxable-equivalent net interest income was $206.3 million in the first
quarter of 2013, virtually unchanged from the same period of 2012 but down 1
percent from the fourth quarter of last year.

Average first-quarter deposits were $22.4 billion, up 11 percent from the
year-ago period but down 4 percent from the fourth quarter of 2012.Period-end
deposits totaled $22.9billion, up 10 percent from March 31, 2012 but down 2
percent from December 31, 2012.The declines from the fourth quarter of 2012
reflect traditional seasonal business patterns.

First-quarter 2013 average noninterest-bearing deposits were up 21 percent
from the same period of 2012, but down 6 percent from the fourth quarter of
last year.

Treasury Services deposit balances, which consist primarily of title, escrow
and property management deposits, averaged $2.3 billion in the first quarter
of 2013, up 15 percent from the same period of last year but down 6 percent
from the fourth quarter of 2012.

First-quarter average loan balances, excluding FDIC-covered loans, were $14.8
billion, up 19 percent from the first quarter of 2012 and up 6 percent from
the fourth quarter of last year.

First-quarter average commercial loans were up 29 percent from the same period
in 2012 and 8percent higher than the fourth quarter of 2012.The
year-over-year increase was primarily due to organic loan growth, as well as
the acquisition of First American Equipment Finance in the second quarter of
2012.

Average balances for commercial real estate mortgages were up 32 percent from
the first quarter of 2012, and they increased 11percent from the fourth
quarter of last year.Average balances for commercial real estate construction
loans declined 25percent from the first quarter of 2012, but were virtually
unchanged from the fourth quarter of last year.

Average balances for single-family residential mortgage loans were up
5percent from the year-ago period and 1 percent higher than the fourth
quarter of 2012.

Average securities for the first quarter of 2013 totaled $9.8 billion, up 24
percent from the first quarter of 2012 and up 1 percent from the fourth
quarter of last year.Total available-for-sale securities amounted to $7.7
billion at March 31, 2013, up from $6.8 billion at the end of the first
quarter of 2012 but down from $9.2 billion at December 31, 2012.The average
duration of available-for-sale securities at March 31, 2013 was 2.8, compared
with 2.5 at March 31, 2012 and 2.3 at the end of the fourth quarter of last
year, as short-term securities holdings were reduced to fund loan growth in
light of stable deposit balances.

City National's net interest margin in the first quarter of 2013 averaged 3.21
percent, compared with 3.74 percent in the first quarter of last year and
3.27percent in the fourth quarter of 2012.The decline from the fourth
quarter of 2012 was due largely to lower income from covered loans due to
repayments and expected portfolio run-off.

First-quarter net interest income included $15.6 million from the FDIC-covered
loans that were repaid or charged off during the quarter.This compares with
$15.7 million in the first quarter of 2012 and $17.5 million in the fourth
quarter of last year.

At March 31, 2013, City National's prime lending rate was 3.25 percent,
unchanged from both March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2012.

COVERED ASSETS

Loans and other real estate owned (OREO) assets acquired in City National's
FDIC‑assisted bank acquisitions totaled $953.3 million at the end of the first
quarter of 2013, compared to $1.4 billion at March 31, 2012 and $1.0 billion
at December 31, 2012.

In the first quarter of 2013, the company recorded a $0.1 million non-cash net
impairment charge to reflect results of the quarterly update of cash-flow
projections for the FDIC-covered loans.In the fourth quarter of 2012, the
company recorded a $3.5 million net gain.The first-quarter charge reflects a
$9.9 million provision for losses on covered loans and an offsetting $9.8
million of noninterest income related to CityNational's loss-sharing
agreements with the FDIC. In addition to the $0.1 million non-cash net
impairment charge for the quarter, the company recognized $0.1million of
other covered assets expense.Net expense from FDIC-covered assets, excluding
the base yield, totaled $0.2 million in the first quarter of 2013, compared
with net income of $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.(The base yield
is the yield on covered assets, excluding income related to covered loans that
are repaid or charged off.)

City National will continue to update cash-flow projections for covered loans
on a quarterly basis.Due to the uncertainty in the future performance of the
covered loans, additional impairments may be recognized in the future.

OREO assets acquired by City National in its four FDIC-assisted bank
acquisitions and subject to loss-sharing agreements totaled $43.8million at
March 31, 2013, compared to $78.5 million at the end of the first quarter of
2012 and $58.3million at December 31, 2012.

NONINTEREST INCOME

Noninterest income was $93.5 million in the first quarter of 2013, up 24
percent from the first quarter of 2012 but down 6 percent from the fourth
quarter of 2012.The increase from the year-earlier period was due largely to
City National's third-quarter 2012 acquisition of Rochdale Investment
Management, its second-quarter 2012 acquisition of First American and higher
cash management income.The decrease from the fourth quarter of 2012 was
primarily attributable to lower distribution income from investments and lower
income from client swap transactions and international services fees, as well
as higher FDIC loss-sharing expense.

In the first quarter of 2013, noninterest income accounted for 32 percent of
CityNational's total revenue, compared to 27percent in the first quarter of
2012 and 33percent in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Wealth Management

City National's assets under management or administration totaled $59.0
billion as of March 31, 2013, up 18percent from the same period of 2012 and 4
percent higher than the fourth quarter of 2012.

Trust and investment fees were $46.7 million, up 39 percent from the first
quarter of 2012 and 6percent higher than the fourth quarter of 2012.The
year-over-year increase was due primarily to the Rochdale acquisition, as well
as higher sales and market appreciation.

Brokerage and mutual fund fees totaled $8.1 million, up 60 percent from the
year-earlier period but down 4 percent from the fourth quarter of 2012.The
year-over-year increase in brokerage and mutual fund fees was due to the
acquisition of Rochdale, as well as slightly higher short-term interest rates.

ownership interest as of March 31, 2013, December 31, 2012 and March 31, 2012,
respectively.
(2) Assets under administration were revised to exclude City National's
investments that were held in custody and serviced by the company's wealth
management business. Prior period balances were reclassified to conform to
current period presentation.

Other Noninterest Income

First-quarter income from cash management and deposit transaction fees was
$13.0million, up 16 percent from the first quarter of 2012 and up 13 percent
from the fourth quarter of last year.The increases were due to higher sales
volume.

Fee income from foreign exchange services and letters of credit totaled $9.6
million in the first quarter of 2013, up 9 percent from the first quarter of
2012, reflecting increased client activity and the addition of new
relationships.Fee income was down 15 percent from the fourth quarter of 2012,
which included unusually strong year-end foreign exchange activity.

Other income was $18.4 million in the first quarter of 2013, up 36 percent
from the first quarter of 2012 but down 24percent from the fourth quarter of
2012.The increase from the year-ago period was due largely to the First
American acquisition, as well as higher gains on transfers of covered loans to
OREO.The decrease from the fourth quarter of last year reflects reduced
income from client swap transactions, lower distribution income from
investments and lower lease residual income.This was partly offset by higher
gains on transfers of covered loans to OREO.

NONINTEREST EXPENSE

City National's first-quarter 2013 noninterest expense amounted to $211.3
million, up 5percent from the first quarter of 2012.Excluding the Rochdale
and First American acquisitions, noninterest expense fell 2 percent from the
first quarter of last year.^1

Noninterest expense was down 5 percent from the fourth quarter of 2012.The
decrease largely reflects lower legal and professional fees and OREO expense,
which were partly offset by higher compensation costs, including seasonally
higher payroll taxes.Fourth-quarter 2012 results included $4.7million in
legal and professional fees and charges related to the resolution of a legal
claim.

loss-sharing agreements involving City National's FDIC-assisted transactions:

percent, down from 31.8 percent in the year-earlier period.The lower tax rate
was due to the recognition of higher tax credits and tax refunds resulting
from the closure of ordinary tax audits.

CAPITAL LEVELS

City National remains well-capitalized, ending the first quarter of 2013 with
a Tier 1 common shareholders' equity ratio of 8.7 percent, compared to 10.2
percent at March31, 2012 and 8.5 percent at December 31, 2012.^1 The change
from the year-earlier period is a reflection of asset growth and the
acquisitions of Rochdale and First American.

Total risk-based capital and Tier 1 risk-based capital ratios at March 31,
2013 were 12.7percent and 9.6 percent, respectively.City National's Tier 1
leverage ratio at March31, 2013 was 6.7percent.All of City National's
capital ratios are above minimum regulatory standards for "well-capitalized"
institutions.

Total risk-based capital, Tier 1 risk-based capital and Tier 1 leverage ratios
at December31, 2012 were 12.5 percent, 9.4 percent and 6.6percent,
respectively.

The period-end ratio of equity to total assets at March 31, 2013 was
9.3percent, compared to 9.2percent at March 31, 2012 and 8.8 percent at
December 31, 2012.

2013 OUTLOOK

Management continues to expect net income growth in 2013 to be
modest.Nonetheless, loan and deposit balances are expected to increase, and
credit quality should remain strong, though rising loan balances may require a
slightly higher loan-loss provision.Low interest rates and a very flat yield
curve will continue to put pressure on the company's net interest margin.This
outlook reflects management's expectations for moderate economic growth
throughout 2013.

(1) In accordance with applicable bank regulatory guidelines, risk-weighted
assets are calculated by assigning assets and credit equivalent amounts of
derivatives and off-balance sheet items to one of several broad risk
categories according to the obligor, or, if relevant, the guarantor or the
nature of the collateral. The aggregate dollar amount in each risk category is
then multiplied by the risk weight associated with that category. The
resulting weighted values from each of the risk categories are added together
for determining risk-weighted assets.
(2) The Tier 1 common equity to risk-weighted assets ratio, tangible equity to
tangible assets ratio, and tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio are
non-GAAP financial measures. See pages 15 and 16 for notes on non-GAAP
measures.

COMPUTATION OF BASIC AND DILUTED EARNINGS PER COMMON SHARE
(unaudited)
                                                              
                                                              
City National applies the two-class method of computing basic and diluted
earnings per common share ("EPS").Under the two-class method, EPS is
determined for each class of common stock and participating security according
to dividends declared and participation rights in undistributed earnings. The
company grants restricted stock and restricted stock units under a share-based
compensation plan that qualify as participating securities.The computation of
basic and diluted EPS is presented in the following table:

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(unaudited)
                                                                              
                                                                              
(a) Noninterest expense, excluding the operating expenses of First American Equipment Finance
and Rochdale Investment Management
                                                                              
Noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2013 was $211.3 million, an increase of 5 percent
from the first quarter of 2012. Excluding the operating expenses of First American Equipment
Finance (acquired in April 2012) and Rochdale Investment Management (acquired in July 2012),
noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2013 was $196.1 million, a decrease of 2 percent
from the first quarter of 2012. Management believes this non-GAAP financial measure enhances the
comparability of the financial results with prior periods.
                                                                              
                                                                              
(b) Return on average tangible common equity ratio (annualized)
                                                                              
Return on average tangible common equity is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents the
return on average common equity excluding goodwill and other intangible assets and their related
amortization expense. Management reviews this measure in evaluating the company's performance
and believes that investors may find it useful to evaluate the return on average common equity
without the impact of goodwill and other intangible assets. A reconciliation of the GAAP to
non-GAAP measure is set forth below:

Tier 1 common equity to risk-weighted assets ratio, also known as Tier 1 common ratio, is
calculated by dividing (a) Tier 1 capital less non-common components including qualifying
perpetual preferred stock, qualifying noncontrolling interest in subsidiaries and qualifying
trust preferred securities by (b) risk-weighted assets.Tier 1 capital and risk-weighted assets
are calculated in accordance with applicable bank regulatory guidelines.This ratio is a
non-GAAP measure that is used by investors, analysts and bank regulatory agencies to assess the
capital position of financial services companies.Management reviews this measure in evaluating
the company's capital levels and has included this ratio in response to market participants'
interest in the Tier 1 common equity to risk-weighted assets ratio.
