									Bankers’ Bank of Kansas

BBOK Bancshares, Inc.

Annual Report 2006



Dear investors, customers and friends, The momentum continued in 2006! Your BBOK posted all-time high earnings and increased total assets under management and participation loans sold to our shareholders. We continued as the market leader in correspondent services to Kansas banks. BBOK came to life through the collaboration of a core group of visionary bankers almost 20 years ago. It has evolved as a real success story as a result of the firm commitment of a dedicated board of directors willing to contribute their time and talent to the BBOK project. Since its inception BBOK has been fortunate to have 48 different Kansas bankers serve on its board.

We’re Primed for Success.

Behind the scenes we have a talented batch of officers and employees who bring professionalism, dedication and talent to focus on the needs of our customers and owners. The thing that impresses me most about our staff is that they are never reluctant to take on a project if it will benefit BBOK and our stakeholders. We have successfully “taken on the big guys” with products such as ABIL Web, several large loan syndications and, most recently, our decision to get into the image-exchange market through the development of our KIX network. All of these undertakings would have been easy to defer in another direction; by tackling them with our own talent we are able to control our destiny for the benefit of Kansas banks. The year 2007 will be no different. In fact, in many aspects it may be our most challenging yet. Issues are becoming more complex and the successful execution of solutions takes talent, vision, focus, patience and capital. We believe, however, that we are primed for success. That said, it won’t be the same in 2007 as three directors complete their terms on the board. Tim Kohart, Dean Mann and Steve Jay have been rock-solid contributors, boosters and stewards of BBOK for the past six years. We all feel that time flies but it seems like only a year ago that they came on the scene. Thank you, gentlemen, on behalf of our 177 shareholders. If you’ll permit the pun and the youthful euphemism, you rock.

Bruce Schriefer President/CEO

The Strategy of Progress.
Growth can happen by accident. Unforeseen windfall. Emerging opportunity. Being in the right place at the right time. Since our inception in 1988, we have grown to exceed $100 million in assets. That level of progress, however, has not happened by chance. We have employed people and processes to ensure that our growth is largely calculated, the byproduct of pressing strategy.


“Paper-Scissors-Rock,” also known as rochambeau, originated 200 BC in Japan where it was and is called “Jan-Ken.” Referred to as the “ultimate decision-making tool,” the game has been played across ages and continents to decide small and large matters. A study of side-blotched lizards at the University of California, Santa Cruz, for example, revealed that the throat color of the species is the result of a sort of paper-scissors-rock game in nature. The strategy of the game is simple: paper covers rock, scissors cut paper, rock breaks scissors. Players count together to three counts—a sort of one-two-three Ro! Sham! Bo! priming position. At the end of the third count players simultaneously change their fists into any of three objects, which they then “throw” towards their opponent. Each of the three basic hand-signs beats one of the other two.

Paper Scissors Rock
While the officers and staff of BBOK certainly don’t assemble and assume the priming stance to settle issues on your behalf, we do employ our own strategic methodology. And at a high level it’s about as simple as a game of paper-scissorsrock. Our ideas for solutions to better serve Kansas community banks start out on a piece of paper. These ideas are circulated, closely scrutinized, discussed and filtered. On the basis of solid review, some end up on the cutting-room floor.

Regularly, however, ideas are brought to the table with the strategic and operational sensibility to improve the way Kansas banks do business. The best of these ideas translate into new products and solutions that become the solid rock of our enterprise. Through all of this, your successes—including the positive financial outcomes and greater ease of doing business you tell us you enjoy—pipe inspiration into our strategic processes and lead us to take the priming position on your behalf again and again. We return to paper to build on the foundation of existing products and solutions. Paper covers rock. We continue to test the merit of emerging solutions. Scissors cut paper. Annually, we deliver a competitive, progressive lineup of financial solutions to ensure you continue to operate efficiently and win market share. Rock breaks scissors.

The Evolution of an Idea.
Ideas, practices or solutions with the potential to positively impact or improve Kansas banking and benefit Kansas banks begin their journey on a piece of paper—the physical or virtual memorandums that create a trail of calculated thought and synthesis. Our team brought a half ream of new ideas to the table in 2006. The concept of a Kansas image exchange network had moved from discussion to proposal by midyear.


Following is an excerpt from a BBOK Cash Letter Processing Situation Analysis presented by Lisa Valentine, vice president, to the board in July 2006:

Bankers’ Bank of Kansas currently acts as a settlement agent in the cash letter clearing process. BBOK customers send nightly cash letters (Forward Items) to either the Federal Reserve Bank in Kansas City or to a Fiserv itemprocessing center, both of which settle with BBOK the following morning. These settlement dollars are then passed to the depositing bank’s BBOK account. In addition to settling the Forward Credits, BBOK also settles the Payor Bank items by passing the applicable debit entries as instructed by the processor. Since the Check 21 Act became effective in October 2004 the move to electronification has been slow. Many Kansas banks, however, have begun to incorporate check imaging at some level. As a result, the volume of checks being remitted electronically is on the rise. The Federal Reserve Bank has been the most aggressive electronic processor in the state with a focus on gaining initial acceptance with the Forward Items and then creating incentives for banks to accept their Payor Bank items electronically. The FRB recently announced it would close the Kansas City checks operation in 2007 and move that center to St. Louis. This closing will result in earlier nightly deadlines to allow the FRB to accommodate the additional transportation time needed to send cash letters to St. Louis. Kansas banks that continue to send their checks to the FRB will need to evaluate their current procedures and determine how the earlier deadlines will affect their backroom operations.

Impact of Check 21
The introduction of Check 21 has created many new opportunities and many new challenges. Electronification of checks means that geography no longer limits a bank’s processing options. Checks can now be processed, exchanged and settled anywhere in the country, driving the demand for lower costs and better service. With this proposition, BBOK must position itself in a more active role in the delivery, clearing and settlement processes. By taking on a greater role with item processing, BBOK can add value by improving deadlines and availability and offering better pricing.

will create additional staffing needs. As the On-We network grows, the cash letter settlement implications grow as well. Due to the nature of the On-We network, BBOK will see a direct impact to its balance sheet. As items are electronically sorted, some items will not be able to clear within the On-We Network. BBOK will “buy” these items so that they can be forwarded for processing under one routing number. The depositing bank will remain the “bank of first deposit,” but adjustments and returns will be routed through BBOK. As a result, these totals will be carried on the BBOK balance sheet, creating new financial and operational responsibilities. BBOK will also offer technical assistance for customers looking for imaging solutions. Through a relationship with Lending Tools, BBOK can provide customers with the hardware and software necessary for creating and transmitting image files for processing. These services would include a remote capture functionality that could be deployed to a branch office or commercial customer and incorporated into the depositing bank’s daily electronic deposits. While the long-term goal is to build the electronic environment, the processing of paper will not become obsolete overnight and continued support and monitoring of existing service providers will be necessary. Both Fiserv and the FRB will eventually make the processing of paper a very cost-prohibitive process. In the meantime, BBOK will need to continue to support the existing business and be flexible enough to adapt as these check processors change their models.

To address the changing needs of our customers, BBOK should expand its operations into check services. This means continuing to foster existing relationships for the processing of paper where it makes sense, while at the same time establishing a BBOK clearing network, Kansas Image eXchange (KIX)* for electronic items. BBOK will , need to employ the services of a third party technology company to provide the technical infrastructure. The long-term goal should be to create the BBOK “On-We” network, clearing items among BBOK customers and creating exchanges with other local networks.

Incorporating item processing into the BBOK core product line will have significant operational implications. Establishing a new department

Our People are Sharp.
It’s hard to describe a typical week at BBOK but it starts every Monday morning with an 8 a.m. officer meeting. In this setting, we take the time to plan our week and bring each other up to date on timely issues and activities. It’s our way of getting everyone on the same page.


It could be the status of a loan participation syndication that Jay Olsen and his team are putting together, information about the new Platinum Visa card that Peg Baldwin and her group have designed, feedback from Calvin Coady and his team about customer issues from the field, or what the next step is in our Kansas Image eXchange project that Lisa Valentine and Shari Bevan are spearheading. It could be the seed of an idea that has germinated on the basis of a team member’s industry watch or a prevalently stated need. With 441 years of

financial experience creating the fulcrum and/or the tipping point it all gets filtered, discussed and plotted as the moving parts come together. Some of our most promising ideas don’t make it to the boardroom table. Our scissors cut paper. But those that pass the critical test of reasonableness and suggest strong benefit for our banks will enter the due diligence and testing phase of a carefully managed process.

Our Foundation for the Future is Rock Solid.
In 2006, a number of new initiatives were inked. The solutions outlined on the following pages have moved successfully through the development stage to become part of our 2007 solutions platform, or are in a final process of refinement.

14 Kansas Image eXchange
BBOK developed KIX as a next step in check image file processing. A boulder in our solutions lineup, it is a leading-edge response to the need for low cost, regional check image exchange. • KIX exchanges images among our customer banks at a much lower cost to you. Items within the KIX network (BBOK banks) will be cleared among our banks. KIX clears items outside our bank network through the Fed and other major image exchange networks to further reduce costs. • KIX interacts with ABIL Web, making it easy to support. • KIX reduces per item processing cost and float expense. KIX extends your hours of operation and enhances customer service. • Cost savings will increase incrementally as more BBOK customer banks enter the KIX environment. • Value-added option: BBOK offers cost-effective solutions for both retail and branch remote capture.

Kansas Bankers’ Mortgage Services
It takes specialized knowledge and expertise to navigate the mortgage banking opportunities that exist today for consumers served by our customer banks. With Kansas Bankers’ Mortgage, our banks can access the secondary mortgage market, offer the full range of mortgage products, generate fee income and satisfy customer needs with first-class service. • Because KBM is a correspondent of the top wholesale investors in the nation, BBOK customer banks gain access to the most competitive pricing available for every product every day. KBM’s volume is leveraged on behalf of our banks. MISC minimizes the effort and responsibility required from participating BBOK banks. But because our banks are in control of information they remain completely responsive to their customers at all times. Accountability is easy. KBM provides product knowledge and process and sales training for bank staff and meets with and educates realtors upon request.

• • Kansas Bankers’ Mortgage Services is exclusively sponsored by BBOK and operated by Mortgage Investment Services in Olathe, Kan. MISC is an independent, Kansas-based, mortgage banking company that serves only community banks and their customers. It is licensed in Oklahoma, Missouri, Colorado and Kansas. • • Owned and operated by veteran mortgage bankers with traditional banking backgrounds, Kansas Bankers’ Mortgage is committed to service and a relationship orientation in an industry that is now driven by technology. • KBM assumes the burden of remaining current in a complex, risky business and keeps it simple for BBOK customer banks. • KBM works with multiple investors to offer Kansas community banks a full spectrum of the best mortgage loan products and solutions, including products not offered by other Kansas mortgage providers.

Credit Card Portfolio Development
Today, BBOK’s credit card department serves more than 30,000 consumer and business cardholders across all participating customer banks. In 2006 American Banker ranked the BBOK credit card portfolio 10th largest in the nation among banks under $1 billion in assets. To support significant growth due to acquisitions and new banks joining BBOK’s custom and universal agent card programs, we added portfolio development to our infrastructure last year. Our new credit card marketing support staff helps our customer banks grow their credit card programs by leveraging the most current product information and education and wholesale marketing ideas. Our portfolio development team also regularly evaluates credit card products for consumer appeal.

ACH Risk Management
Mid-2006 a document was published by the Comptroller of the Currency instructing banks to closely monitor their ACH risk. The document outlined specific pieces of data a bank needs to closely watch and periodically report to its board. Discussions began around the need for a BBOK ABIL Web enhancement, programmed with specific new reports and features designed to help our customer banks manage their ACH risk. In October, we broadcast a message over ABIL Web asking for customer suggestions for ACH risk management reports we would design and make available over the system. We took the comprehensive feedback we received, determined what was systematically possible and most needed, and then developed a prototype ACH Risk Management module. That prototype was sent to eight customer banks for their review and suggested modifications.

In this first quarter of 2007, BBOK is in the final stages of completing the protocol and reporting functionality of our new ACH risk management module: Customer Reports #1: listing of all international ACH transactions submitted through ABIL Web to Mexico for user-defined time periods #2: listing of originators with ACH items returned over a predefined percentage #3: listing of received ACH returns by reason code #4: listing of originated ACH returns by reason code #5: listing of originated ACH returns by standard entry class code #6: listing of received ACH returns by standard entry class code #7: originated dollars and volume by standard entry class code #8: dollars, volume and return-item percentages by originator Future Enhancements • New function to generate an ACH originator profile (allowing batch control limits, dates of financial statements, collateral used, etc.) • New function with OFAC scanning on domestic ACH transactions

Loans-decision ongoing. The goal is to create a naturally evolving and improving system.
When Jay Olsen joined BBOK in February 1996 loan volume was $17.4 million. At the close of business in 2006, loan volume exceeded $211 million—$127 million plus in loans sold to customer banks and $84 million on our books. BBOK paid more in interest to participating banks in 2006— $7.1 million—than it had loans sold a decade ago. But as Jay Olsen pointed out in the second quarter 2006 issue of The Kansas Correspondent, “BBOK is looking for the loans under $500K that represent 51 percent of our volume by number. “We’re absolutely in business to serve our banks. If it’s (a loan) important to our banks, it’s important to us. “Any loan is fair game! With the big deals comes a big spotlight and big responsibility. Our banks watch these high-profile deals and consequently think we’re in the market for big loans…In fact, we are just as responsive to the $50,000 participation opportunity as the $500,000 or $5-million deal.”

Prairie Horizon Agri-Energy plant in Phillipsburg, Kan.— a multimillion-dollar loan deal for BBOK and 51 participating shareholders.

BBOK managed two of the largest participation loans in its history in 2006.

Park Place, a $250 million, urban-style, mixed-use project at 117th Street and Nall Avenue in Leawood, Kan.— a $45 million loan. BBOK, in partnership with Bankers’ Bank Syndication Services, Inc., has $22.5 million participated to 30 stockholder banks.


We’re Always in the Priming Position.
As a partner to Kansas community banks, BBOK is charged with continual exploration of and investment in new ideas and paradigms. We can’t rest on our laurels. As the face of banking changes, we remain committed to change the way we do business. This requires that we return to paper over and over again, ultimately creating the trail to new or better ways of doing business so that you remain competitive. Progressiveness, we believe, is a precursor to success. Facilitating your success is our #1 core value.


“Having served as a director for the past six years and chairman of the board for the past year, I can testify that BBOK has and will continue to be ambitious in its delivery of new products and services to its customer correspondent. A recent example, of course, is KIX, which will allow BBOK customers to exchange image items among themselves efficiently and cost-effectively. “Further, BBOK provides a valuable resource to correspondent banks to enhance and diversify their portfolios. Loan participations in the past six years have grown more than 500 percent to over $125,000,000. “Never satisfied with doing business as usual, BBOK continually strives to be innovative and progressive, yet strong and secure in its role as your main correspondent bank.” —Tim Kohart, president, Valley State Bank, Syracuse, and 2006-2007 BBOK board chairman
