Huntington Bank Projected To Be Ranked as Third Largest
SBA 7(a) Lender in the Country

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- April 9, 2009 -- Huntington Bank is projected to become the third largest SBA 7(a) lender in the nation in 2009, based on an analysis by the Coleman Report, a California-based, industry-wide publication that closely follows SBA lending.

According to the March 9 issue of the report, Huntington is expected to rank fourth after Wells Fargo Bank, U.S. Bank and Wachovia Bank. The analysis is based on the SBA's first quarter, fiscal year 2009 results. Moreover, Wells Fargo has purchased Wachovia, moving Huntington up to the third spot.

"Small businesses are vital members of our communities because they create the majority of jobs," said Mary Navarro, senior executive vice president, who leads Huntington's retail banking. "Huntington's SBA lending record underscores our commitment to build relationships with small businesses in order to help them prosper and grow."

In the first quarter of fiscal 2009, Huntington's SBA 7(a) loan volume topped $50 million. The report also indicates that Huntington is one of only two banks out of the top 30 lenders that are projected to increase SBA lending this year.

Huntington's SBA-enhanced loans can be used by small business owners for real estate, business acquisition or expansion, start-up costs, equipment purchases, working capital and more. For more information about Huntington's SBA-guaranteed loan program, visit www.huntington.com.
