International Bancshares Corporation (“IBC”), today announced that
yesterday it completed the repurchase of 45,000 shares of the preferred

Troubled Asset Relief Program Capital Purchase Program on December 23,

stock while still retaining our strong capital position and without
issuing any common stock or incurring any Company debt. The Company
intends to repurchase the remaining TARP preferred stock on or before
June 30, 2013; however, the speed with which the Company retires the
remaining shares of the preferred stock will depend upon the Board’s
view of the present and expected economic conditions,” said Dennis E.

categorized as well-capitalized. The following table outlines the
