1                The proration factors have been rounded to nearest hundredth of a percentage point.

The Offers expired at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on December 5, 2013 (the "Expiration Time"). As of the Expiration Time, holders of the Notes had validly tendered and not validly withdrawn the principal amounts set forth in the table above.  The Company has accepted the aggregate principal amount for each Series set forth in the table above. Because the aggregate principal amount of each Series of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn exceeds the applicable Series Maximum, the Company will accept Notes for purchase for each Series up to the applicable Series Maximum on a pro rata basis based on the applicable proration factor set forth in the table above. The Company expects to cause settlement on December 6, 2013 for Notes accepted for purchase. In addition, holders whose Notes are purchased in the Offers will also be paid accrued and unpaid interest from the most recent interest payment date on the Notes up to, but not including, the settlement date.

The purchase price for Notes accepted for purchase by the Company is $1,087.50 per $1,000 principal amount for both the 6% Convertible Notes and the 6% Non-Convertible Notes and $1,085.00 per $1,000 principal amount for both the 5.50% Convertible Notes and 5.50% Non-Convertible Notes. Zions will purchase $249,937,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes in the Offers described above. The total consideration payable by the Company is $271,493,988 for the Notes accepted for purchase, not including accrued interest.

Due to the price paid in excess of par in connection with the purchase of these Notes and the accretion of the discount at which the Notes were carried at on Zions' balance sheet, Zions expects to record a pre-tax charge of approximately $81 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.  Relative to the third quarter of 2013, Zions expects that its annual interest expense would decline approximately $38 million as a result of the retirement of this debt; this estimate reflects this transaction in isolation, and does not contemplate the effect on interest expense of previous debt issuance or other factors.
