Subscription Agreement

Exhibit 10.1
     THIS SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”) by and between Flagstar Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”), a corporation organized under the laws of the State of Michigan, with its principal offices at 5151 Corporate Drive, Troy, Michigan 48098-2639, and the undersigned subscriber (the “Subscriber”) is made effective as of the date on which the Company accepts this Agreement by executing the acceptance form below.
     WHEREAS, the Company has entered into an Investment Agreement made as of December 17, 2008 with MP Thrift Investments L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“MP Thrift”), pursuant to which MP Thrift agreed to purchase from the Company 250,000 shares of a series of mandatory convertible participating voting preferred stock, $0.01 par value per share, of the Company (the “Convertible Preferred Stock”), at a purchase price of $1,000 per share, with each share convertible into common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company (the “Common Stock”), at the liquidation preference divided by $0.80 (the “MP Thrift Investment Agreement”);
     WHEREAS, in order to induce MP Thrift to enter into the MP Thrift Investment Agreement, the Subscribers have agreed to purchase shares of Common Stock (the “Management Shares”) for an aggregate purchase price of not less than $4 million and not more than $5 million at a price per Management Purchased Share of $0.80 per share, provided, however, that if the Company does not have sufficient shares of Common Stock available for issuance prior to an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares thereunder, then the Subscribers shall instead purchase an equivalent number shares of Convertible Preferred Stock on an as converted basis as would have been purchased if sufficient shares of Common stock were available for issuance.
     SECTION 1. Subscription for the Management Shares. At the completion of the purchase and sale of the Management Shares (the “Closing”), the Subscriber hereby offers to purchase from the Company, upon the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth,                      shares of Common Stock at a purchase price of $.80 per share (the “Purchase Price”).
     SECTION 2. Acceptance of Subscriptions. Subscriber understands that the Company may accept this offer for all or any portion of the aggregate principal amount subscribed for herein or may reject this subscription without notice, in full or in part, with or without cause. Subscriber understands that the execution and delivery of this Agreement will not constitute an agreement between Subscriber and the Company until this Agreement has been accepted by the Company. The undersigned Subscriber will be notified of the acceptance of this subscription, or its rejection, by the Company.
     SECTION 3. Delivery of the Shares at the Closing. At the Closing, the Subscriber shall deliver, in immediately available funds, the full amount of the Purchase Price for the Management Shares being subscribed for hereunder to an account designated by the Company and the Company will issue                      shares of Common Stock sold in the offering against

 


 

receipt of subscription funds from Subscribers. Such shares will bear an appropriate legend referring to the fact that the Management Shares were sold in reliance upon the exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), provided by Section 4(2) thereof and Rule 506 thereunder. The Management Shares, along with a copy of this Agreement accepted by the Company, will be delivered to Subscriber within five business days of the Closing.
     SECTION 4. Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Subscriber. The Subscriber hereby represents and warrants to, and covenants with, the Company that:
     4.1 Experience. (i) The Subscriber is knowledgeable, sophisticated and experienced in financial and business matters, in making, and is qualified to make, decisions with respect to investments in shares representing an investment decision like that involved in the purchase of the Management Shares, including investments in securities issued by the Company and comparable entities, has the ability to bear the economic risks of an investment in the Management Shares and has reviewed carefully the information provided by the Company to the Subscriber in connection with this Agreement and the purchase of the Management Shares hereunder, and has requested, received, reviewed and considered all information it deems relevant in making an informed decision to purchase the Management Shares; (ii) the Subscriber is acquiring the number of Management Shares set forth in Section 2.1 above in the ordinary course of its business and for its own account for investment only and with no present intention of distributing any of the Management Shares or any arrangement or understanding with any other persons regarding the distribution of such Management Shares (this representation and warranty not limiting the Subscriber’s right to sell pursuant to the Registration Statement or in compliance with the Securities Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (the “Rules and Regulations”)); and (iii) the Subscriber will not, directly or indirectly, offer, sell, pledge, transfer or otherwise dispose of (or solicit any offers to buy, purchase or otherwise acquire or take a pledge of) any of the Management Shares, nor will the Subscriber engage in any short sale that results in a disposition of any of the Management Shares by the Subscriber, except in compliance with the Securities Act and the Rules and Regulations and any applicable state securities laws.
     4.2 Reliance on Exemptions. The Subscriber understands that the Management Shares are being offered and sold to it in reliance upon specific exemptions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, the Rules and Regulations and state securities laws and that the Company is relying upon the truth and accuracy of, and the Subscriber’s compliance with, the representations, warranties, agreements, acknowledgments and understandings of the Subscriber set forth herein in order to determine the availability of such exemptions and the eligibility of the Subscriber to acquire the Management Shares.
     4.3 Investment Decision. The Subscriber understands that nothing in this Agreement or any other materials presented to the Subscriber in connection with the purchase and sale of the Management Shares, constitutes legal, tax or investment advice. The Subscriber has consulted such legal, tax and investment advisors as it, in its sole discretion, has deemed necessary or appropriate in connection with its purchase of the Management Shares.
     4.4 Risk of Loss. The Subscriber understands that its investment in the Management Shares involves a significant degree of risk, including a risk of total loss of the Subscriber’s

investment, and the Subscriber has full cognizance of and understands all of the risk factors related to the Subscriber’s purchase of the Securities. The Subscriber understands that the market price of the Common Stock has been volatile, and that no representation is being made as to the future value of the Management Shares.
     4.5 Legend. The Subscriber understands that, until such time as the Registration Statement has been declared effective or the Management Shares may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act without any restriction as to the number of securities as of a particular date that can then be immediately sold, the Management Shares will bear a restrictive legend in substantially the following form:
“THE SHARES EVIDENCED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”) OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE OR OTHER JURISDICTION. THE SHARES MAY NOT BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED EXCEPT (1) PURSUANT TO AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR (2) PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT, IN EACH CASE IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS AND THE SECURITIES LAWS OF OTHER JURISDICTIONS, AND IN THE CASE OF A TRANSACTION EXEMPT FROM REGISTRATION, UNLESS THE COMPANY HAS RECEIVED AN OPINION OF COUNSEL REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO IT THAT SUCH TRANSACTION DOES NOT REQUIRE REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT AND SUCH OTHER APPLICABLE LAWS.”
     4.6 Transfer Restrictions. Consistent with the legend set forth in Section 3.5, the Management Shares may only be disposed of in compliance with state and federal securities laws.
     SECTION 5. Termination of the Offering. The offering of the Management Shares can be terminated at any time by the Company regardless of whether this Agreement has theretofore been accepted by the Company. In the event of termination of this offering, the amount paid for the Management Shares previously remitted by Subscriber, without interest thereon, will be promptly refunded to Subscriber and this Agreement, and the parties’ obligations hereunder, shall terminate.
     SECTION 6. Subscription Irrevocable. This Agreement and the subscription for the Management Shares hereby shall be irrevocable after delivery to the Company.
     SECTION 7. Notices.
