Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

To the Plan Trustees and Investment Committee Members of

SWS Group 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan:

We have audited the accompanying statements of net assets available for benefits of SWS Group 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan (the “Plan”) as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the related statement of changes in net assets available for benefits for the year ended December 31, 2013. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Plan’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. We were not engaged to perform an audit of the Plan’s internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Plan’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the net assets available for benefits of SWS Group 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the changes in net assets available for benefits for the year ended December 31, 2013 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Our audits were performed for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic financial statements taken as a whole. The supplemental Schedule H, Part IV, Line 4i – Schedule of Assets (Held at End of Year) as of December 31, 2013 is presented for purposes of additional analysis and is not a required part of the basic financial statements, but is supplementary information required by the Department of Labor’s Rules and Regulations for Reporting and Disclosure under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. This supplemental schedule is the responsibility of the Plan’s management. The supplemental schedule has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audits of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole.

401(k) Profit Sharing Plan

Notes to Financial Statements

December 31, 2013

1. Plan Description

The SWS Group 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan (the “Plan”) is a defined contribution plan covering all employees of SWS Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company” or “Employer”) who meet the eligibility requirements. The Plan is subject to the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 as amended (“ERISA”). Participants should refer to the Plan agreement for a more complete description of the Plan’s provisions.

2. Summary of Significant Accounting and Plan Policies

(a) Basis of Presentation

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

(b) Use of Estimates

The preparation of the Plan’s financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the Plan administrator to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and changes therein, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

(c) Risks and Uncertainties

The Plan provides for various investment options. Investments are exposed to various risks, such as interest rate, market and credit. Due to the level of risk associated with certain investments and the level of uncertainty related to changes in the value of investments, it is at least reasonably possible that changes in risks in the near term would materially affect participants’ account balances and the amounts reported in the statements of net assets available for benefits and the statement of changes in net assets available for benefits.

(d) Administration

The Plan is administered by a Trustee Committee appointed by the Company’s Board of Directors. The Trustee of the Plan is Charles Schwab Trust Company. Certain expenses of the Plan are charged directly to participant accounts. The Plan pays for all administrative expenses unless otherwise paid by the Company at the Company’s sole discretion. In 2013, all administrative expenses were paid by the Plan.

(e) Investments and Investment Income

Investments are reported at fair value. Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. See Note 5 for discussion of fair value measurements.

Purchases and sales of securities are recorded on a trade-date basis. Interest income is recorded as earned and dividends are recorded on the ex-dividend date.

The Plan presents the net appreciation in fair value of investments, which consists of realized gains and losses, unrealized appreciation (depreciation) and any income or capital gain distributions, in the accompanying statement of changes in net assets available for benefits.

Notes to Financial Statements

December 31, 2013

(f) Plan Benefits

The vested portion of the accrued benefit of a participant upon termination or retirement is his or her Plan benefit. Normal retirement age as elected by the Company is 55. Several options for payment are available and all require the agreement of the participant. Under certain circumstances, employees may be allowed to take a distribution for a financial hardship. Benefits are recorded by the Plan when paid.

(g) Notes Receivable from Participants

Notes receivable from participants are carried at the original note balance plus accrued interest, less principal repayments.

(h) Accounting Pronouncements

There were no new accounting pronouncements that were issued or became effective during the period that were applicable to the Plan.

3. Contributions

(a) Employer

The Company contributes a matching contribution equal to 100% of the participant’s salary reduction amount not in excess of 4% of compensation. The Board of Directors of the Company determines the amount of discretionary Employer contributions to the Plan each year. The discretionary contribution is allocated to each participant in the ratio of each participant’s covered compensation to the total covered compensation of all participants subject to maximum limits on annual additions and compensation as required by the Internal Revenue Code. No discretionary Employer contributions were made to the Plan for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.

(b) Participant Contributions

For the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the maximum participant contribution of pre-tax annual compensation, as defined by the Plan, was 50% (subject to the limit described below). Participants may also contribute rollovers of distributions from other qualified defined benefit or defined contribution plans. Participants direct the investment of their contributions into various investment options offered by the Plan. Participant contributions were limited to $17,500 and $17,000 during the 2013 and 2012 Plan years, respectively. Catch up contributions are allowed for participants age 50 or older. In 2013 and 2012, the limit for catch up contributions was $5,500.

Subject to an investment policy established by the Administrator, participants can direct how some (or all) of their account balance will be invested through a self-directed brokerage account. It allows the participant to access and invest in other funds, stocks and bonds outside of the Plan’s core funds. All earnings and losses on the directed investments are credited directly to the participant account, net of an annual administrative fee of $100.

(c) Forfeitures

At December 31, 2013 and 2012, forfeited nonvested accounts totaled $8,552 and $129,842, respectively. These amounts are used to reduce future Employer contributions. During 2013, Employer contributions were reduced by $129,904 from forfeited nonvested accounts.

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820, “ Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures ,” provides the framework for measuring fair value. That framework provides a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under FASB ASC 820 are described as follows:

Level 1 Inputs to the valuation methodology are unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the Plan has the ability to access.

Level 2 Inputs to the valuation methodology include:

• Quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets;

• Quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in inactive markets;

• Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability; and

• Inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.

If the asset or liability has a specified (contractual) term, the Level 2 input must be observable for substantially the full term of the asset or liability.

Level 3 Inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

The asset’s or liability’s fair value measurement level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of any input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Valuation techniques used need to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs.

Notes to Financial Statements

December 31, 2013

The following is a description of the valuation techniques used for assets measured at fair value as well as the general classification of such instruments pursuant to the valuation hierarchy. There have been no changes in the methodologies used at December 31, 2013 and 2012.

Securities classified as Level 1 primarily consist of financial instruments whose value is based on quoted market prices which include common, preferred and employer stock, unit investment trusts and publicly traded limited partnerships. Mutual funds and money market funds are valued at the publicly quoted net asset value (“NAV”) of each fund. The total NAV is calculated by multiplying the NAV per share by the number of shares held as of the measurement date.

Consistent with industry practice, mutual funds and money market funds have been classified as Level 1 as there are no redemption restrictions or lockup provisions.

Securities classified as Level 2 include financial instruments that are valued using models or other valuation methodologies. These models are primarily industry standard models that consider various assumptions, including time value, yield curve, volatility factors, current market and contractual prices for the underlying financial instruments, as well as other relevant economic measures. Substantially all of these assumptions are observable in the marketplace, can be derived from observable data or are supported by observable levels at which transactions are executed in the marketplace. Financial instruments included in Level 2 of the hierarchy are certain common and employer stock balances, collective trusts, unit investment trusts, U.S. government securities, limited partnerships, corporate bonds and debentures and preferred stock. Inputs for common stock, unit investment trusts, limited partnerships and preferred stock valuation methodology include quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in inactive markets. Certain employer stock balances are valued at the net asset value of shares held by the Plan at year end and collective trusts are valued based on their NAV as obtained from audited financial statements prepared on a fair value basis in accordance with GAAP, which represents fair value. The NAV, as provided by the trustee, is used as a practical expedient to estimate fair value. The NAV is based on the fair value of the underlying investments held by the fund less its liabilities. This practical expedient is not used when it is determined to be probable that the fund will sell the investment for an amount different than the reported NAV. Redemption restrictions for collective trusts are less than 60 days. Government securities and corporate bonds and debentures are valued primarily using industry standard models utilizing assumptions which are observable in the marketplace, which represents fair value.

The methods described above may produce a fair value calculation that may not be indicative of net realizable value or reflective of future fair values. Furthermore, while the Plan believes its valuation methods are appropriate and consistent with other market participants, the use of different methodologies or assumptions to determine the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a different fair value measurement at the reporting date.

There were no Level 3 assets as of the years ended December 31, 2013 or 2012.

Annually, the company evaluates, and recognizes, if necessary, transfers of financial instruments between levels. There were no transfers between levels during the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.

6. Notes Receivable from Participants

Notes have been granted to participants in accordance with the provisions of the Plan. Notes are secured by the participant’s account balance and are limited to a maximum term of five years except when the note is used to acquire the principal residence of the participant, in which case the maximum term is 15 years. Note amounts are limited to the lesser of 50% of the respective participant’s vested account balance, or $50,000, reduced by the excess (if any) of the highest outstanding balance of the participant’s notes from the Plan during the one-year period ending the day before the new note is made, over the outstanding balance of the participant’s notes from the Plan on the day the note is made. The interest rate for participant notes as determined by the Plan administrator is the prime lending rate. Interest rates for notes to participants at December 31, 2013 ranged from 3.25% to 9.00%. Related fees are recorded as administrative expenses and are expensed when they are incurred.

Repayments are made through payroll deductions and are reinvested in the individual funds according to the current investment allocations of the participant. Delinquent notes are treated as distributions based on the terms of the Plan document. Participants on military leave or unpaid leave of absence may qualify for a suspension of note payments.

7. Parties-In-Interest

Certain investments are managed by an affiliate of Charles Schwab Trust Company, which is a trustee as defined by the Plan and, therefore, these transactions qualify as party-in-interest transactions. These investments total $46,306,955 and $41,518,019 at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Additionally, the Plan holds investments in the Company’s common stock and notes receivable from participants, both of which constitute party-in-interest transactions.

8. Tax Status

The Plan received a favorable determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) dated December 30, 2003. The Plan has been amended since receiving the determination letter; however, the Plan administrator believes that the Plan is designed and is currently being operated in compliance with the applicable provisions of the Internal Revenue Code.

The Plan Administrator has analyzed the tax positions taken by the Plan and has concluded that as of December 31, 2013, there are no uncertain positions taken or expected to be taken. The Plan has recognized no interest or penalties related to uncertain tax positions. The Plan is subject to routine audits by taxing jurisdictions; however, there are currently no audits for any tax periods in progress. The Plan Administrator believes the Plan is no longer subject to income tax examinations for years prior to 2010.

9. Plan Termination

Although it has not expressed any intent to do so, the Company may terminate the Plan at any time subject to the provisions of ERISA. In the event of Plan termination, the rights of each participant to the amount in his or her account on the date of such termination shall be fully vested and nonforfeitable.

10. Subsequent Events and Merger Agreement

On March 31, 2014, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (“Merger Agreement”) with Hilltop Holdings, Inc. (“Hilltop”) and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hilltop, whereby if the merger contemplated therein is completed, the Company will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hilltop. It is currently anticipated that the completion of the merger will occur by the end of 2014 subject to the receipt of SWS Group stockholder approval, regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. The Merger Agreement provides that, at Hilltop’s written request made not later than 15 days prior to the completion of the merger, the Company will terminate the Plan effective as of immediately prior to, or contingent on, the completion of the merger. As of the date of this report, Hilltop has not made such request.

Plan management has evaluated material events and transactions that have occurred after December 31, 2013 and concluded that no other significant, subsequent events have occurred through June 25, 2014, the date the financial statements were issued, that would require recognition or disclosure in these financial statements.
