NEW YORK -- October 25, 2013

Juan E. Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national
securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of
Directors of Home Federal Bancorp (“Home Federal” or the “Company”) (HOME) for
potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct
related to the sale of the Company to Cascade Bancorp (CACB) in a cash and
stock deal valued at approximately $265.7 million. Earlier this month Home
Federal announced the Company had entered into a merger agreement with Banner
Corporation (BANR). The termination of this merger will cost Home Federal
approximately $3 million in fees.

The investigation focuses on whether Home Federal’s Board of Directors
breached their fiduciary duties to the Company’s stockholders by failing to
conduct an adequate and fair sales process prior to agreeing to this proposed
transaction, whether and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the
Company to the detriment of Home Federal’s shareholders.
