            Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

   The accompanying consolidated financial statements have not
been audited. The results of operations are not necessarily
indicative of the results of operations for the full year or any
other interim periods.

   The accounting principals followed by United Community Banks,
Inc. ("United") and its bank subsidiaries and the methods of
applying these principals conform with generally accepted
accounting principals and with general practices within the
banking industry. Certain principals which significantly affect
the determination of financial position, results of operation and
cash flows are summarized below and in United's annual report on
Form 10-K for the year ended 
December 31, 1995.


(1) Basis of Presentation
    ---------------------

   The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of
United and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Union County Bank
(UCB), Citizens Bank (Citizens), Peoples Bank (Peoples), Towns
County Bank (Towns) and White County Bank (White) . All
significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been
eliminated in consolidation. Certain items in prior period's
financial statements have been reclassified to conform with the
current financial statement presentation.

   The consolidated financial information furnished herein
reflects all adjustments which are, in the opinion of management,
necessary to present a fair statement of the results of
operations and financial position for the periods covered herein
and are normal and recurring in nature. For further information,
refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes
included in United's annual report on Form 10-K for the year
ended December 31, 1995.

(2) Earnings Per Share
    ------------------

  Earnings per share amounts are based on the weighted average
number of shares outstanding. Fully diluted earnings per share
are not presented because the assumed conversion of the
subordinated debentures do not result in material dilution.

(3) Acquisition of Branch Offices
    -----------------------------

  On May 25, 1995, United executed a Purchase and Assumption
Agreement to acquire certain assets and deposit liabilities of
the Franklin and Waynesville, North Carolina branch offices of
Nations Bank, N.A. These branch offices had total assets of $14.8
million, total loans of $11.1 million and total deposits of $26.1

On  June 6, 1996, United executed a Purchase and Assumption
Agreement to acquire certain assets and deposit liabilities of
the Cornelia, Georgia branch office of the First National Bank of
Commerce. This branch office had total assets of $29 million,
total loans of $28 million and total deposits of $21 million as
of June 30, 1996.  This acquisition is expected to close during
the third quarter.

(4) Recently Issued Accounting Standards
    ------------------------------------

   During 1995, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB)
issued SFAS No. 123,  Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation.  
This new standard became effective January 1, 1996, and will
require United to disclose the fair value of employee stock
options granted in 1995 and subsequent years.  Since United will
not be required to record the options at fair market value,
management does not expect this new standard to have a material
impact on the consolidated financial statements.

(5)     Net Earnings Per Common Share
        -----------------------------

Net earnings per common share are based on the weighted average
number of common shares outstanding during each period.  The
assumed conversion of the convertible subordinated debentures and
exercise of stock options do not result in material dilution. 
All share and per share data have been adjusted to reflect the
October 1995, five-for-one split, effected in the form of a stock
dividend, paid on November 6, 1995.

tem 2.        MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
                                OF
          FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

                      Results of Operations

OVERVIEW
Net earnings for the six months ended June 30, 1996 increased to
$3.6 million or 35 percent over net earnings for the first six
months of 1995.  Net earnings per common share for the first six
months also increased 21 percent from the same period in 1995 to
$.57.  Net interest income increased 38 percent for the six
months ended June 30, 1996 over the same period of 1995 to 14.6
million.  For the first half of 1996, the provision for loan
losses increased 35 percent to $567.000 for the six month period. 
Noninterest income and expense rose 22 percent and 31 percent
respectively over the first half of 1995.

NET INTEREST INCOME
Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 1996
increased $4 million over the first half of 1995.  This increase 
was the result of a $7 million, or 31 percent increase in
interest income, offest by a $3 million, or 25 percent increase
in interest expense.  The increase in interest income was due to
an increase in average earning assets of  $141 million coupled
with an increase in the average yield on earning assets from 8.73
percent to 8.89 percent.

Interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 1996,
increased $3 million , or 25 percent from the prior year, due
primarily to a 30% increase in average core deposits.

NET INTEREST MARGIN 
The difference between the overall interest income on earning
assets and the interest expense paid on all funding sources,
including noninterest bearing deposits, is referred to as the net
interest margin.  For the first six months of 1996 the net
interest margin was 4.63 percent compared to 4.36 percent for the
same period in 1995.  This  27 basis point increase resulted from
a stable rate environment as well as a favorable change in the
core deposit mix.

NONINTEREST INCOME AND EXPENSE  
Noninterest income for the first six months of 1996 increased
$451 thousand, or 22 percent over the same period in 1995. 
Service charges on deposits increased over $372 thousand, or 41
percent during the first six months, principally as a result of
an increased number of depoist accounts being serviced.  This
increase is a result of continued growth and the White County and
the Citizens  branch banking acquisitions.  Mortgage loan and
related fees increased $228 thousand, or  36% as a result of
declining rate environment for a majority of the first six months
of 1996.  Gains on investment securities sold during the first
quarter of 1996 were not material.

                               -8-
<PAGE>
Noninterest expenses increased $2.6 million,  during the first
six months of 1996 over the same period in 1995.  Salaries and
employee benefits increased $1.6 million, or 34 percent, for the
first half.  The increase in salaries and benefits was the result
of an additional 57 employees compared to the same period in
1995.  The number of employees increased primarily as a result of
the White County acquisition as well as the branch banking
facilities acquired by Citizens as discussed earlier.  Net
occupancy expense increased $348 thousand due primarily to an
increase in the depreciation and other occupancy expenses
associated with the increased number of banking facilities.  FDIC
deposit insurance premiums decreased $472 thousand as a result of
the recalculated FDIC assessment.  Other noninterest expense,
including stationary and supplies and advertising , increased
$1.2 million during the first half of 1996.

INCOME TAXES
Income tax expense increased during the first half of 1996
compared to the same period in 1995 by $767 thousand.  The
effective tax rates for the six months ended June 30, 1996 and
1995 were 35 percent and 30 percent, respectively.  The increases
are due primarily to the combined efforts of increased levels of
pretax income, and a lower mix of  tax-exempt securities held in
the investment portfolio.  Management expects the trend of an
increasing effective tax rate to continue.

PROVISION AND ALLOWANCE FOR POSSIBLE LOAN LOSSES
The provision for loan losses for the six months ended June 30,
1996 increased 35 percent to  $567 thousand from the $420
thousand reported for the same period in 1995.   Management
considers the size and character of the loan portfolio, changes
in nonperforming and past due loans, historical loan loss
experience, the existing risk of individual loans, concentrations
of loans to specific borrowers and existing and prospective
economic conditions when determining the adequacy of the
allowance for loan losses.  The allowance for loan losses at June
30, 1996 was $7.2 million compared to $6.5 million at December
31, 1995.  The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to loans
outstanding at June 30, 1996 was 1.42 percent  compared to 1.48
percent at December 31, 1995.  The reduction in the ratio
reflects the improvement in the quality of United's loan
portfolio and a reduction in the net charge-offs.  It is
management's belief that the allowance for loan losses is
adequate to absorb probable loss in the portfolio.

NONPERFORMING ASSETS AND PAST DUE LOANS
Nonperforming assets, comprised of nonaccrual loans, other real
estate owned and loans for which payments are more than 90 days
past due, decreased $900 thousand  to $ 1.3 million at June 30,
1996 from $2.2 million at December 31, 1995.  In addition,
Nonperforming assets as a percentage of total loans and other
real estate owned improved to .26 percent at March 31, 1996 from
 .48 percent at December 31, 1995.

                               -9-
<PAGE>
United regularly monitors selected accruing loans for which
general economic conditions or changes within a particular
industry could cause the borrowers financial difficulties.  This
continuous monitoring of the loan portfolio and the related
identification of loans with a high degree of credit risk are
essential parts of United's credit management.  Management
continues to emphasize maintaining a low level of nonperforming
assets and returning current nonperfroming assets to an earning
status.

At June 30, 1996, management was unaware of any known trends,
events or uncertainties that will have or that are reasonably
likely to have a material effect on United's liquidity, capital
resources or operations.

                       Financial Condition

OVERVIEW
Total assets at June 30, 1996 were $700 million representing a
$40 million or a  6 percent increase from December 31, 1995 and a
$101 million or a 17 percent increase from June 30, 1995.  


ASSETS AND FUNDING
At June 30, 1995, earning assets totaled $650 million, an
increase of $38 million from December 31, 1995.  The earning
assets mix improved slightly in the first six months with loans
representing 77% of the total earning assets as compared to 73%
percent at December 31, 1995.

Interest bearing deposits at June 30, 1996 increased $26 million
from December 31, 1995, while non-interest bearing deposits
increased over $5.7 million since December 31, 1995.  At June 30,
1996, deposits accounted for 89 percent of United's funding, from
90 percent at December 31, 1995.

 
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $9.2 million
for the six months ended June 30, 1996. For the first half of
1996, net cash used from investing activities of $45.2 million
consisted of proceeds from maturities of investments securities
of $29.1 million, proceeds from sales of investment securities of
$12 million, and offset by cash outflows of $27.3 million in
investment securities purchases, a $58.3 million increase in
loans outstanding and purchase of bank premises and equipment of
$616 thousand.  Net cash provided by financing activities
consisted largely of $31.6 million increase in deposit and time
accounts, $6 million from additional FHLB advances, and were
offset slightly by payments of $706 thousand on United's long-
term debt and FHLB repayments.

Total stockholders' equity at June 30, 1996, was 6.70 percent of
total assets compared to 6.67 percent at December 31, 1995. The
slight increase since year end 1995 reflects the asset growth of
$40 million and the change of $698 thousand in the unrealized
loss in United's available for sale investment portfolio offset
by retained earnings from the first six months of 1996.
