Description of 2007 Bonus Incentive Plan

On January 24, 2007, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a cash incentive bonus plan for 2007 (the “2007 Bonus Plan”) for all officers and employees of the Company and the Bank. The 2007 Bonus Plan is essentially the same as the 2006 Bonus Plan. Bonuses will be paid under the 2007 Bonus Plan in early 2008 if and to the extent the Company’s performance in 2007 meets or exceeds certain minimum levels on certain key performance indicators.

The key performance indicators used to determine whether any bonuses will be paid under the 2007 Bonus Plan will be the same for all employees. The amounts of the bonuses under the 2007 Bonus Plan, if earned, will be determined, in part, by multiplying the employee’s salary by an the employee’s payout percentage up to a maximum of 45% of salary, plus a discretionary component which may or may not be paid in whole or in part based on the Compensation Committee’s qualitative assessment of individual contributions toward the Company’s success relative to Customer Service, Deposit Growth, Compliance, Loan Originations and Portfolio Growth, Loan Charge-Off and Delinquency Ratios. While the payout percentages will vary from employee to employee, they will increase proportionately for all employees if and to the extent the Company attains a net income level above the minimum threshold. All named executive officers are eligible under the plan.

Discretionary Bonus 2007: The total discretionary amount available for distribution to all employees will not to exceed 4% of after-tax net income.
