1 Western Financial Group Q2 2009 Financial Results Conference Call August 18, 2009

2 Forward-Looking Statements This presentation contains certain forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements regarding the future financial position, business strategy, budgets, litigation, projected costs, capital expenditures, financial results, taxes and plans and objectives of or involving Western Financial Group Inc. (the “Company”) or its subsidiaries. Many of these statements can be identified by looking for words such as ‘‘believe’’, ‘‘expects’’, ‘‘expected’’, ‘‘will’’, ‘‘intends’’, ‘‘projects’’, ‘‘anticipates’’, ‘‘estimates’’, ‘‘continues’’ or similar words. The Company believes the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable but no assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward-looking statements should not be unduly relied upon. Forward- looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve a number of risks and uncertainties only some of which are described herein. Many factors could cause the Company’s actual results, performance or achievements to, or future events or developments to, differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, the risk factors, which are discussed in greater detail in the ‘‘Risk Factors’’ section of the prospectus. Any forward-looking statements are made as of the date hereof and the Company does not assume any obligation to publicly update or revise such statements to reflect new information, subsequent events or otherwise. Non-GAAP Measures Throughout this presentation, the Company may use the term ‘‘operating income’’ to refer to earnings, including investment income, before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization of intangible and capital assets, excluding gain (loss) from the sale of assets and income (loss) from equity investments. The Company uses ‘‘operating income’’ to assist it in measuring corporate performance before the costs of capital and amortization of capital and intangible assets. Operating income is not a measure recognized by GAAP and does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. Therefore, this measure may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers and investors are cautioned that it should not be used as an alternative to ‘‘net income’’ or other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP.
