SOUTH BEND, Ind.--(Business Wire)--
1st Source Bank has been recognized by Forbes as one of America`s Best Banks in
its annual review of the nation`s 100 largest publicly held financial
institutions. 1st Source ranked #25 on the list based on an analysis of asset
quality, capital adequacy and profitability. 1st Source ranked higher than any
other bank based in Indiana or southwestern Michigan. 

"I`m very pleased that Forbes has named 1st Source one of the best banks in the
country," said Christopher J. Murphy III, Chairman and CEO of 1st Source. "Our

SNL gauged each bank based on eight criteria: return on average equity, net
interest margin, nonperforming loans; nonperforming assets; reserves; a leverage
ratio and two capital ratios. The data is based on regulatory filings of public
banks and thrifts through the third quarter of 2012.

billion and is the largest locally controlled financial institution
