HERMITAGE, Pa., March 10, 2014

HERMITAGE, Pa., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB)
today announced that it executed a balance sheet strategy to sell its entire
portfolio of pooled trust preferred securities (TPS) with net proceeds of
$51.6 million and a resulting pre-tax gain of $13.8 million. FNB expects to
utilize a portion of the gain to sell certain low-yielding securities to
enhance future net interest income.

The TPS portfolio consisted of twenty-three pooled securities, with a current
amortized cost of $37.8 million and a fair value at December 31, 2013 of $31.6
million. Of the twenty-three pools sold, one was determined to be a
disallowed investment under the Volcker Rule.

Exclusive of the net gain, these actions are expected to be neutral to
operating earnings in 2014 and generate a slight benefit to FNB's overall
financial position, including its capital levels.
