SALT LAKE CITY -- May 13, 2013

Security National Financial Corporation (NASDAQ Symbol “SNFCA”) announced
today the purchase of a $3.8 million portfolio of performing loans secured by
multifamily and mixed-use properties located in Southern California. The
properties securing the loan portfolio consist of three multifamily properties
in Beverly Hills and Englewood, California, as well as two mixed-use and a
commercial property in Lawndale and San Diego, California.

Due to the low loan-to-value and long-standing performance of these loans, the
Company believes these to be conservative, low-risk investments yielding a
strong rate of return, which aligns with the Company’s long-term investment
objectives. With favorable growth in Southern California retail and housing
markets, these loans give the Company a greater presence in economically
viable and established neighborhoods in Southern California.

Garrett Sill, Acting Chief Financial Officer of SNFC, noted: “After thorough
site visits and due diligence, we found this portfolio to be a great addition
to our existing mortgage portfolio. The low loan-to-values and strong payment
histories combined with an above market yield made this an attractive purchase
for the Company.”
