On February 18, 2021, FB Financial Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release. A copy of the press released is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Report”).

The Company announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized and empowered a special committee (the “Repurchase Committee”) to commence a stock repurchase program (the “Repurchase Plan”) pursuant to which the Company may purchase up to $100,000,000 in shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock, par value $1.00 per share. The purchase authorizations granted under the Repurchase Plan will terminate either on the date on which the maximum dollar amount is repurchased under the Repurchase Plan or on March 31, 2022, whichever date occurs earlier.

Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements

Certain statements contained in this Report are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, those statements relating to the compliance of the Program with Rule 10b-18 promulgated under the Exchange Act. These statements, which are based upon certain assumptions and estimates and describe the Company’s future plans, results, strategies and expectations, can generally be identified by the use of the words and phrases “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “goal,” “plan,” “potential,” “estimate,” “project,” “believe,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “target,” “aim,” “predict,” “continue,” “seek,” “projection” and other variations of such words and phrases and similar expressions. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts, and are based upon current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company’s industry, management’s beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and beyond the Company’s control. The inclusion of these forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation by the Company or any other person that such expectations, estimates and projections will be achieved. Accordingly, the Company cautions investors that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, assumptions and uncertainties that are difficult to predict and that are beyond the Company’s control. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable as of the date of this Report, actual results may prove to be materially different from the results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements in this Report including, without limitation, the risks and other factors set forth in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K under the captions “Cautionary note regarding forward-looking statements” and “Risk factors” and periodic and current reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K. Many of these factors are beyond the Company’s ability to control or predict. If one or more events related to these or other risks or uncertainties materialize, or if the Company’s underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual results may differ materially from the forward-looking statements. Accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date of this Report, and the Company does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as required by law. New risks and uncertainties may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the Company to predict their occurrence or how they will affect the Company.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
