Nationally recognized distinctive and focused commercial bank has
thrived on organic growth

MIAMI LAKES, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ringing the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange, the leadership
of BankUnited, Inc. (NYSE: BKU) celebrated the company’s 10th
anniversary since its creation during the financial crisis. The company
has since grown to become Florida’s largest independent bank.

From its onset, BankUnited has successfully executed a dynamic organic
growth strategy unique in the banking industry focused on two of the
most attractive banking markets in the country: Florida and New York.
Today, BankUnited is the No. 2 Most Profitable Bank in Florida (Florida
Business Journals
) and one of the Top 25 New York Area’s Largest
Commercial Banks (Crain’s New York Business).

BankUnited Chairman, President and CEO Rajinder P. Singh is one of the
bank’s founders who coordinated the purchase of the failed thrift from
the FDIC in 2009 and guided the bank through one of the largest bank
IPOs in U.S. history when BankUnited went public in 2011.

“In the first decade, BankUnited shareholders have seen the company’s
book value grow from approximately $10.00 per share to $29.71 per
share,” said Singh. “During this time, we have nearly tripled our
deposit base to $23.7 billion and have grown our loan portfolio
prudently from virtually nothing to $22.2 billion. We did this the
old-fashioned way, by building the bank one relationship at a time, and
we are proud to be able to celebrate what we have built.

“As we look forward, we are well-positioned to continue our journey to
becoming a premier regional commercial bank known for its focus on
client experience and operational excellence. Expect the next ten years
to be even more momentous and exciting than the first.”
