Press Release




RALEIGH, N.C. – Sept. 10, 2008 – RBC Bank will open its newest banking center Sept. 15 in downtown Raleigh
as part of the bank’s move to the RBC Plaza.

“We are excited to continue to be part of downtown Raleigh and look forward to continue serving our clients
from this state-of-the-art facility,” said Chris Suggs, RBC Bank regional manager. “The new RBC Plaza banking
center offers downtown clients convenience and access to an array of financial services.”

The opening of the RBC Plaza banking center will be the latest milestone in the final phases of the building’s
completion. RBC Bank also recently celebrated the lighting of RBC Plaza’s signs and spire – the tallest point of
Raleigh’s skyline.

The new banking center will celebrate its opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in September, followed by a
grand opening event in October.

At 33 stories and 540 feet, the RBC Plaza is the tallest building in downtown, helping take the skyline – and
RBC Bank – to new heights.

Brookey Hardee, RBC Bank banking center manager, will oversee the new full-service banking center, which
offers 24-hour ATM service.

The RBC Plaza banking center lobby will be open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The banking
center phone number is (919) 839-4400.
