SECONDARY SALE PURCHASER AGREEMENT, dated as of September 19, 2013 (this “Agreement”), by and between Anchor BanCorp Wisconsin Inc., a Wisconsin corporation (the “Company”), and the undersigned entity (the “Investor”).

RECITALS:

 

  A. Bankruptcy Case. On August 12, 2013 (the “Petition Date”), the Company filed a voluntary bankruptcy petition (the “Bankruptcy Case”) under Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Code, 11 U.S.C. §§ 101, et seq. (the “Bankruptcy Code”), in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Wisconsin (the “Bankruptcy Court”). The Company intends for the Transactions (as defined below) to be effected under a plan of reorganization of the Company to be confirmed by order of the Bankruptcy Court (the “Plan of Reorganization”). A draft of the Plan of Reorganization has been provided to the Investor prior to delivery of the Investor’s executed signature page hereto.

 

  B. Investment. Following the confirmation of the Plan of Reorganization by the Bankruptcy Court, the Company intends to sell in several private placement transactions (collectively, the “Primary Investment Transactions”) to investors identified by the Company a number of shares of common stock, par value $0.10, of the Company (the “Common Stock”) at a price per share of Common Stock equal to $0.10 (the “Per Share Purchase Price”) on the terms and conditions described in the stock purchase agreements for the Primary Investment Transactions.

 

  C. Senior Debt. In connection with the Primary Investment Transactions and under the Plan of Reorganization, the Company intends to settle in full all of the Company’s obligations (including with respect to unpaid principal balance, accrued but unpaid interest thereon and all administrative and other fees or penalties) under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of June 9, 2008 (as amended from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”), among the Company, U.S. Bank National Association, as administrative agent (“U.S. Bank”), and the lenders from time to time party thereto (collectively with U.S. Bank, the “Lenders”), for an amount of cash equal to $49,000,000 (plus expense reimbursement as contemplated under the Credit Agreement) (the “Senior Debt Settlement”). On or prior to the Petition Date, the Company received from the Lenders written consents to vote (including written ballots themselves) in sufficient amount and number to cause the class of Lenders under the Plan of Reorganization to accept such Plan of Reorganization.

 

  D. U.S. Treasury. In connection with the Primary Investment Transactions and under the Plan of Reorganization, the Company intends to (i) exchange the 110,000 shares of Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series B of the Company (the “TARP Preferred Stock”) currently held by the United States Department of the Treasury (the “Treasury”) for 60,000,000 shares of Common Stock in the aggregate (the “Treasury Issuance”) and (ii) cancel the related warrant to purchase 7,399,103 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $2.23 per share held by the Treasury (the “TARP Warrant”) in its entirety (collectively, the “TARP Exchange”).


  E. Secondary Treasury Sale. Immediately following the TARP Exchange, the Treasury intends to sell to the Investor, and the Investor will purchase from the Treasury, as an investment in the Company, a number of shares of Common Stock specified on the Investor’s signature page hereto in respect of certain shares of Common Stock delivered to the Treasury in connection with the TARP Exchange at a purchase price per share equal to the Per Share Purchase Price (the “Investment”) on the terms and conditions described in the securities purchase agreement between the Investor and Treasury (the “Secondary Sale Agreement”). In connection with the Investment, the Company desires to make certain representations and warranties to the Investor and provide certain rights to the Investor as a stockholder of the Company.

 

  F. Other Secondary Treasury Sales. Contemporaneously with the Investment, the Treasury intends to sell in several other private placement transactions to other investors to be identified by the Company and acceptable to the Treasury shares of Common Stock at the Per Share Purchase Price contemporaneously with the closing of the Investment (collectively, the “Other Secondary Sales”). The Investment and the Other Secondary Sales are collectively referred to as the “Secondary Treasury Sales”).

 

  G. Debt Issuance. In connection with the Primary Investment Transactions, the Company intends to issue to certain investors up to $30 million of newly-issued unsecured indebtedness, on the terms contemplated by Exhibit A (the “Debt Issuance”).

 

  H. Delaware Conversion and Amended Charter. Under the Plan of Reorganization, the Company will (i) convert from a Wisconsin corporation to a Delaware corporation in accordance with Section 265 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “Delaware Conversion”) and (ii) file the Articles of Incorporation in the form contemplated by Exhibit B (the “Amended Charter”) with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in order to, among other things, increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock to at least 2,000,000,000 shares or such larger number as the board of directors of the Company (the “Board of Directors”) determines is necessary to effectuate the Primary Investment Transactions and the TARP Exchange and adopt certain restrictions on acquisitions and dispositions of securities and to make certain other changes.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises, and of the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements set forth herein, the parties agree as follows:

(b) As used in this Agreement, the term “Material Adverse Effect” means any fact, event, change, condition, development, circumstance or effect that, individually or in the aggregate, (1) would reasonably be expected to be material and adverse to the business, assets, liabilities, properties, results of operations or condition (financial or otherwise) of the Company and the Company Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, other than any such fact, event, change, condition, development, circumstance or effect attributable to, resulting from, arising out of or relating to (i) the Bankruptcy Case, (ii) any change or proposed change, after the date hereof, in banking or similar laws, rules or regulations of general applicability or interpretations thereof by Governmental Entities, (iii) any change, after the date hereof, in U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) or interpretations thereof, (iv) changes, after the date hereof, affecting the financial services industry generally, the United States economy or general economic conditions, including changes in prevailing interest rates, credit markets, secondary or mortgage market conditions or housing price appreciation/depreciation trends, including changes to any previously correctly applied asset marks resulting therefrom, (v) national or international political or social conditions, including the engagement by the United States in hostilities or escalation thereof, whether or not pursuant to the declaration of a national emergency or war, or the occurrence of any military or terrorist attack upon the United States, or any of its territories,

No partner, member or other equityholder in the Investor will indirectly own a five percent (5%) or greater interest in the Company solely as a result of such person’s interest in the Investor; provided, however, that the foregoing representation shall not be deemed breached if such person will indirectly own a five percent (5%) or greater interest in the Company solely as a result of such person’s interest in the Investor if (i) such person has no other direct or indirect interest in the Company and (ii) such person has no partner, member or other equityholder of its own that will indirectly own a five percent (5%) or greater interest in the Company as a result of such person’s interest in it. The Investor agreed to enter into this Agreement based, in part, on its expectation, following its discussions with the Placement Agent and the Company, that the Primary Investment Transactions and the Secondary Treasury Sales would be at least adequately subscribed. Such decisions to enter into this Agreement were not based on the identity of any other investor or potential investor (including whether management of the Company would or would not invest) in the Primary Investment Transactions or the Secondary Treasury Sales.

Each party hereto agrees to keep the other party apprised of the status of matters relating to completion of the transactions contemplated hereby. The Investor and the Company shall promptly furnish each other to the extent permitted by applicable laws with copies of written communications received by them or their Affiliates from, or delivered by any of the foregoing to, any Governmental Entity (other than public filings with the Bankruptcy Court) in respect of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Secondary Sale Agreement; provided that the party

 

29


delivering any such document may redact any confidential information contained therein. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, nothing contained in this Agreement shall require the Investor or any of its Affiliates to (i) take any action that would result in the Investor or any of its Affiliates being deemed to control the Company or the Bank for purposes of the Change in Bank Control Act of 1978, the HOLA or the cross-guaranty liability provisions of the FDI Act, or that would require any such entity to register as a savings and loan holding company, (ii) take or refrain from taking or agree to take or refrain from taking any action or suffer to exist any condition, limitation, restriction or requirement that would result in a Burdensome Condition or (iii) provide to the Company any of its, its Affiliates’, its investment advisor’s or its or their control persons’ or equity holders’ nonpublic, proprietary, personal or otherwise confidential information including the identities of limited partners, shareholders or members of the Investor or its Affiliates or their investment advisors. So long as the Investor holds any securities of the Company, the Company will not, without the consent of the Investor, take any action, directly or indirectly through its subsidiaries or otherwise, that the Board of Directors believes in good faith would reasonably be expected to cause the Investor to be subject to transfer restrictions or other covenants of the FDIC Statement of Policy on Qualifications for Failed Bank Acquisitions as in effect at the time of taking such action or thereunder.

3.2 Access, Information and Confidentiality.

(a) From the date of this Agreement, until the date when the Investor no longer beneficially owns at least fifty percent (50%) or more of all of the Purchased Shares (a “Qualifying Ownership Interest”), subject to applicable law or regulatory requirements, the Company will use reasonable efforts to afford the Investor and its representatives (including employees of the Investor, and counsel, accountants, investment advisors and other professionals retained by the Investor) such access during normal business hours to its and the Company Subsidiaries’ books, records, properties and personnel and to such other information as the Investor may reasonably request.

(b) Each party to this Agreement will hold, and will cause its respective subsidiaries and their directors, officers, employees, agents, consultants, and advisors to hold, in strict confidence, unless disclosure to a Governmental Entity (and, solely with respect to the Company, the Bankruptcy Court) is necessary or appropriate in connection with any necessary regulatory approval or unless compelled to disclose by judicial or administrative process or by other requirement of law or the applicable requirements of any Governmental Entity (and, solely with respect to the Company, the Bankruptcy Court), all nonpublic records, books, contracts, instruments, computer data and other data and information (collectively, “Information”) concerning the other party hereto furnished to it by such other party or its representatives pursuant to this Agreement (except to the extent that such Information can be shown to have been (1) previously known by such party on a nonconfidential basis, (2) in the public domain through no fault of such party, or (3) later lawfully acquired from other sources by the party to which it was furnished), and neither party hereto shall release or disclose such Information to any other person, except its auditors, attorneys, financial advisors, other consultants, and advisors and, to the extent permitted above, to bank regulatory authorities. Prior to any disclosure of Information permitted by the prior sentence, the party proposing to disclose such Information shall, to the extent legally permissible, provide notice to the other party so that the other party may, at its own expense, seek an protective order or other appropriate remedy and/or waive

 

30


compliance with the provisions of this Section 3.2(b). If such protective order or other remedy is denied, the party proposing to disclose such Information shall (x) furnish only that portion of the Information that, based upon the advice of counsel, is necessary to be disclosed in connection with such necessary regulatory approval or is compelled to be disclosed by such judicial or administrative process or by such other requirement of law or such applicable requirements and (y) use its reasonable best efforts to obtain assurances that confidential treatment will be accorded to the Information.

3.3 Reasonable Best Efforts. Subject to the other provisions of this Agreement, each of the Company and the Investor agree to use their respective reasonable best efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all actions, and to do, or cause to be done, and to assist and cooperate with the other in doing, all things necessary, proper or advisable to consummate and make effective, in the most expeditious manner practicable, the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Secondary Sale Agreement, including using reasonable best efforts to accomplish the following: (a) the taking of all reasonable acts necessary to cause the conditions to Closing to be satisfied; (b) the making of all necessary registrations and filings and the taking of all reasonable steps necessary to obtain an approval, order or waiver from, or to avoid an action or proceeding by any Governmental Entity (and, solely with respect to the Company, the Bankruptcy Court) or third party, and the obtaining of all necessary actions or nonactions, waivers, consents and approvals from Governmental Entities (and, solely with respect to the Company, the Bankruptcy Court) or third parties, including the Required Approvals and, solely with respect to the Company, the confirmation of the Plan of Reorganization by the Bankruptcy Court; (c) solely with respect to the Company, the TARP Exchange; (d) solely with respect to the Company, the Senior Debt Settlement; (e) solely with respect to the Company, the Debt Issuance; (f) solely with respect to the Company, the confirmation by the Bankruptcy Court of the Plan of Reorganization; (g) solely with respect to the Company, the Delaware Conversion and the Amended Charter; (h) solely with respect to the Company, file the Bankruptcy Case with the Bankruptcy Court on the Petition Date; (i) solely with respect to the Company, assume this Agreement and the stock purchase agreements in the Primary Investment Transactions under Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code in the Bankruptcy Case at the confirmation of the Plan of Reorganization; and (j) the execution and delivery of any additional instruments necessary to consummate the transactions contemplated by, and to fully carry out the purposes of, this Agreement.

ARTICLE IV

ADDITIONAL AGREEMENTS

4.1 Governance Matters. Subject to the satisfaction of all legal, regulatory and governance requirements, immediately or as promptly as practicable following the Closing, the Company shall cause the Board of Directors to be reconstituted to consist of eight (8) members as follows: Chris Bauer, one representative designated by an investor in the Primary Investment Transactions, one representative designated by another investor in the Primary Investment Transactions, one representative designated by a third investor in the Primary Investment Transactions, and four (4) independent directors reasonably acceptable to the Company.

 

31


4.2 Transfers; Legend; Form D.

(a) The Investor acknowledges that the Purchased Shares have not been, and, subject to Section 4.5, will not be, registered under the Securities Act or under any state securities laws and agrees that it will not sell or otherwise dispose of any of the Purchased Shares, except in compliance with the registration requirements or exemption provisions of the Securities Act and any other applicable securities laws. Any attempt to sell or otherwise dispose of any Purchased Shares not in compliance with this Agreement shall be null and void ab initio, and the Company shall not, and shall cause any transfer agent not to, give any effect in the Company’s stock records to such attempted sale or disposition.

(b) The Investor agrees that all certificates or other instruments representing the Purchased Shares subject to this Agreement will bear a legend substantially to the following effect:

“(1) THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS INSTRUMENT HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED, SOLD OR OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF EXCEPT WHILE A REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATING THERETO IS IN EFFECT UNDER SUCH ACT AND APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS OR PURSUANT TO AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER SUCH ACT OR SUCH LAWS.

(2) THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO TRANSFER AND OTHER RESTRICTIONS SET FORTH IN A SECONDARY SALE PURCHASER AGREEMENT, DATED AS OF SEPTEMBER 19, 2013, COPIES OF WHICH ARE ON FILE WITH THE SECRETARY OF THE ISSUER.”

(c) Upon request of the Investor, upon receipt by the Company of an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Company to the effect that such legend is no longer required under the Securities Act or applicable state laws, as the case may be, the Company shall promptly cause the legend to be removed from any certificate for any Purchased Shares.

(d) The Company agrees to timely file a Form D with respect to the Purchased Shares as required under Regulation D. The Company, on or before the Closing Date, shall take such action as the Company shall reasonably determine is necessary in order to obtain an exemption for or to qualify the Common Stock for sale to the Treasury in connection with the TARP Exchange under applicable securities or blue sky laws of the states of the United States (or to obtain an exemption from such qualification). The Company shall make all filings and reports relating to the offer and sale of the Purchased Shares required under applicable securities or blue sky laws of the states of the United States following the Closing Date.

 

32


4.3 Indemnity.

(a) From and after the Closing, the Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Investor and its Affiliates and each of their respective officers, directors, direct or indirect partners or members, employees, agents and investment advisors, and each person who controls the Investor within the meaning of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, to the fullest extent lawful, from and against any and all actions, suits, claims, proceedings, costs, losses, liabilities, damages, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements), amounts paid in settlement and other costs (collectively, “Losses”) arising out of or resulting from (1) any inaccuracy in or breach of any of the Company’s representations or warranties in Section 2.2 of this Agreement, (2) the Company’s material breach of any agreements or covenants made by the Company in this Agreement or (3) any Losses arising out of or resulting from any legal, administrative or other proceedings instituted by any Governmental Entity, stockholder of the Company or any other person (other than the Investor and its Affiliates and the Company and the Company Subsidiaries) arising out of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (other than any Losses attributable to the acts, errors or omissions on the part of the Investor, but not including the transactions contemplated hereby).

(b) A party entitled to indemnification hereunder (each, an “Indemnified Party”) shall give written notice to the party indemnifying it (the “Indemnifying Party”) of any claim with respect to which it seeks indemnification promptly (and in no event more than thirty (30) days) after the discovery by such Indemnified Party of any matters giving rise to a claim for indemnification; provided that the failure of any Indemnified Party to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations under this Section 4.3 unless and to the extent that the Indemnifying Party shall have been materially and adversely prejudiced by the failure of such Indemnified Party to so notify such party. Such notice shall describe in reasonable detail such claim to the extent known by the Indemnified Party. In case any such action, suit, claim or proceeding is brought against an Indemnified Party, the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to hire, at the cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party, counsel and conduct the defense thereof; provided, however, that the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to assume and conduct the defense thereof, unless the counsel to the Indemnified Party advises such Indemnifying Party in writing that such claim involves a conflict of interest (other than one of a monetary nature) that would make it inappropriate for the same counsel to represent both the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party, in which case the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to retain its own counsel at the cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party (except that the Indemnifying Party shall only be liable for the legal fees and expenses of one law firm for all Indemnified Parties, taken together with respect to any single action or group of related actions). If the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of any claim, all Indemnified Parties shall thereafter deliver to the Indemnifying Party copies of all notices and documents (including court papers) received by the Indemnified Party relating to the claim, and each Indemnified Party shall cooperate in the defense or prosecution of such claim. Such cooperation shall include the retention and (upon the Indemnifying Party’s request) the provision to the Indemnifying Party of records and information that are reasonably relevant to such claim, and making employees available on a mutually convenient basis to provide additional information and explanation of any material provided hereunder. The Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any settlement of any action, suit, claim or proceeding effected without its written consent; provided, however, that the Indemnifying Party shall not unreasonably withhold or delay its consent. The Indemnifying Party further agrees that it will not, without the Indemnified Party’s prior written consent, settle or compromise any claim or consent to entry of any judgment in respect thereof in any pending or threatened action, suit, claim or proceeding in respect of which indemnification

 

33


has been sought hereunder unless such settlement or compromise (A) includes an unconditional release of such Indemnified Party from all liability arising out of such action, suit, claim or proceeding, (B) provides solely for the payment of money damages and not any injunctive or equitable relief or criminal penalties and (C) does not create any financial or other obligation on the part of an Indemnified Party which would not be indemnified in full by the Indemnifying Party.

(c) For purposes of the indemnity contained in Sections 4.3(a)(1), all qualifications and limitations set forth in the parties’ representations and warranties as to “materiality,” “Material Adverse Effect” and words of similar import, shall be disregarded in determining whether there shall have been any inaccuracy in or breach of any representations and warranties in this Agreement.

(d) The Company shall not be required to indemnify the Indemnified Parties pursuant to Section 4.3(a)(1) (i) with respect to any claim for indemnification if the amount of Losses with respect to such claim are less than $25,000 (any claim involving Losses less than such amount being referred to as a “De Minimis Claim”) and (ii) unless and until the aggregate amount of all Losses incurred with respect to all claims (other than De Minimis Claims) pursuant to Section 4.3(a)(1) exceed the product of (x) 2.85%, multiplied by (y) the Purchase Price (the “Threshold Amount”), in which event the Company shall be responsible for all Losses incurred by the Indemnified Party (without regard to the Threshold Amount). The cumulative indemnification obligations of the Company hereunder shall in no event exceed the Purchase Price.

(e) In the event of any transfer of the Purchased Shares to a third party that is not an Affiliate of the Investor, the Company shall have no obligations under this Section 4.3 to such transferee. The indemnity provided for in this Section 4.3 shall be the sole and exclusive monetary remedy of Indemnified Parties after the Closing for any inaccuracy of any of the representations and warranties contained in Sections 2.2 and 2.3 of this Agreement or any other breach of any covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement; provided that nothing herein shall limit in any way any such party’s remedies in respect of fraud, intentional misrepresentation or omission or intentional misconduct by the other party in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby. No party to this Agreement (or any of its Affiliates) shall, in any event, be liable or otherwise responsible to any other party (or any of its Affiliates) for any punitive damages of such other party (or any of its Affiliates) arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the performance or breach hereof.

(f) Any indemnification payments pursuant to this Section 4.3 shall be treated as an adjustment to the Purchase Price for the Purchased Shares for U.S. federal income and applicable state and local Tax purposes, unless a different treatment is required by applicable law.

4.4 Preemptive Rights.

(a) Following the Closing, for so long as the Investor has a Qualifying Ownership Interest, if the Company proposes to issue (a “New Issuance”) any equity (including shares of Common Stock or shares of Company Preferred Stock), or any securities, options or debt that are convertible or exchangeable into equity or that include an equity component (any

 

34


such security, a “New Security”), the Company shall provide written notice of such proposed New Issuance to the Investor no later than fifteen (15) business days prior to the anticipated issuance date (the “Preemptive Rights Notice”). The Investor shall have the right to purchase for cash, at the price and on the same terms and conditions and at the same time as the New Issuance, such number of New Securities as are required to enable it to maintain its proportionate Common Stock-equivalent interest in the Company immediately prior to any such issuance of New Securities (the “Preemptive Amount”). The Preemptive Rights Notice shall set forth all material terms and conditions of the New Issuance, including the number New Securities proposed to be issued, the issue price and the maximum number of New Securities that the Investor may purchase in the New Issuance pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence.

(b) The Investor may elect to participate in the New Issuance to the extent described in Section 4.4(a) by delivering an irrevocable written notice to the Company by the date specified by the Company in the Preemptive Rights Notice (which shall be no later than three (3) business days before the anticipated date of the New Issuance), setting forth the number of shares the Investor wishes to purchase in the New Issuance up to its Preemptive Amount; provided that in order to exercise rights under this Section 4.4 (“Preemptive Rights”), the Investor must execute all customary transaction documentation in connection with such New Issuance on the same terms as any other participant in the New Issuance; provided, further, that in the event that the Company is issuing more than one type or class of New Securities in connection with such New Issuance, the Investor participating in such issuance shall be required to acquire the same percentage of all such types and classes of securities.

(c) The closing of the acceptances of the Preemptive Rights shall take place at the same time as the closing(s) under definitive agreements with other participants in the New Issuance, which in any event shall occur within ninety (90) days after the anticipated date of the New Issuance as set forth in the Preemptive Rights Notice. In the event that the New Issuance is not consummated within the time frame described above, the Company’s right to consummate such New Issuance shall expire and the Company shall be required to comply with the procedures set forth in this Section 4.4 prior to any subsequent New Issuance. At the consummation of any New Issuance, the Company shall issue certificates to the Investor promptly following payment by the Investor of the purchase price for such exercise in accordance with the terms and conditions as specified in the Preemptive Rights Notice.

(d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Investor shall not have any Preemptive Rights in connection with (i) any issuance of New Securities to management, consultants, employees, officers or directors of the Company pursuant to management or employee incentive programs or plans approved by the Board of Directors (including any such programs or plans in existence on the date hereof), (ii) any issuance, delivery or sale of New Securities by the Company to any person as consideration in connection with (but not in connection with raising capital to fund) (1) an acquisition or strategic business combination approved by the Board of Directors or (2) an investment by the Company approved by the Board of Directors in any party which is not prior to such transaction an Affiliate of the Company (whether by merger, consolidation, stock swap, sale of assets or securities, or otherwise), (iii) any issuance, delivery or sale of New Securities in any registered public offering or (iv) any issuance of New Securities in connection with any stock split, stock dividend paid on a proportionate basis to all holders of the affected class of capital stock or recapitalization approved by the Board of Directors (any such issuance, an “Exempted Issuance”).

 

35


(e) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 4.4, if a majority of the directors of the Board of Directors determines that the Company must issue equity or debt securities on an expedited basis, then the Company may consummate the proposed issuance or sale of such securities (“Expedited Issuance”) and then comply with the provisions of this Section 4.4 provided that (i) the purchaser(s) of such New Securities has consented in writing to the issuance of additional New Securities in accordance with the provisions of this Section 4.4, and (ii) the sale of any such additional New Securities under this Section 4.4(e) to the Investor and certain other investors in the Primary Investment Transactions and Secondary Treasury Sales pursuant to this Section 4.4 and similar provisions in the other stock purchase agreements in the Primary Investment Transactions and Secondary Treasure Sales shall be consummated as promptly as is practicable but in any event no later than ninety (90) days subsequent to the date on which the Company consummates the Expedited Issuance under this Section 4.4(e). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the consent of the purchasers of such New Securities shall not be required in connection with any Expedited Issuance undertaken at the written direction of the applicable federal regulator of the Company or the Bank.

(f) In addition, the Investor shall not have any Preemptive Rights in connection with any issuance of New Securities to the extent that a majority of the Board of Directors determines that such issuance would materially increase the risk of or cause an “ownership change” within the meaning of Section 382 of the Code.

4.5 Registration Rights.

(a) Registration.

(1) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Company covenants and agrees that as promptly as practicable after the Closing Date (and in any event, no later than the date that is ninety (90) days after the Closing Date), (i) the Company shall have prepared and filed with the SEC one or more Shelf Registration Statements on Form S-1 covering the resale of Registrable Securities and the Company shall use reasonable best efforts to cause such Shelf Registration Statement to be declared or become effective and to keep such Shelf Registration Statement continuously effective and in compliance with the Securities Act and usable for resale of such Registrable Securities for a period from the date of its initial effectiveness until the time as there are no such Registrable Securities remaining (including by refiling such Shelf Registration Statement (or a new Shelf Registration Statement) if the initial Shelf Registration Statement expires) and (ii) the Company shall register the Registrable Securities on Form S-3 promptly after such form is available.

(2) Any registration pursuant to this Section 4.5(a) shall be effected by means of a shelf registration under the Securities Act (a “Shelf Registration Statement”) in accordance with the methods and distribution set forth in the Shelf Registration Statement and Rule 415. If the Investor or any other holder of Registrable Securities to whom the registration rights conferred by this Agreement have been transferred in

 

36


compliance with this Agreement intends to distribute any Registrable Securities by means of an underwritten offering it shall promptly so advise the Company and the Company shall take all reasonable steps to facilitate such distribution, including the actions required pursuant to Section 4.5(c). The lead underwriters in any such distribution shall be selected by the holders of a majority of the Registrable Securities to be distributed hereunder (provided that such lead underwriters shall be reasonably acceptable to the Company).

(3) The Company shall not be required to effect a registration (including a resale of Registrable Securities from an effective Shelf Registration Statement):

(i) with respect to securities that are not Registrable Securities or with respect to Registrable Securities that cannot be sold under a registration statement as a result of the transfer restrictions set forth herein;

(ii) during any Scheduled Black-out Periods, with respect to any resale of Registrable Securities from an effective Shelf Registration Statement by the Investor only if the Investor, at such time, has contractually designated (1) an individual to serve as a member of the Board of Directors (an “Investor Designated Director”), and such Investor Designated Director has been elected or appointed to the Board of Directors, or (2) an individual to attend meetings of the Board of Directors, the Bank Board or any committees thereof as a non-voting observer (an “Observer”); or

(iii) if the Company has notified the Investor and all other Holders that in the good faith judgment of the Board of Directors, it would be materially detrimental to the Company or its security holders for such registration to be effected at such time, in which event the Company shall have the right to defer such registration for a period of not more than forty five (45) days after receipt of the request of the Investor or any other Holder; provided that such right to delay a registration pursuant to this clause (iii) shall be exercised by the Company (x) only if the Company has generally exercised (or is concurrently exercising) similar black-out rights (if any) against holders of similar securities that have registration rights and (y) not more than two times in any twelve (12)-month period and not more than ninety (90) days in the aggregate in any twelve (12)-month period.

The Company shall provide the Investor written notice of any Scheduled Black-out Period, if applicable to such Investor, no later than five (5) business days prior to the commencement of such Scheduled Black-out Period.

(4) If during any period when the Shelf Registration Statement is not effective or available, the Company proposes to register any of its securities, other than a registration pursuant to Section 4.5(a)(1) or a Special Registration, and the registration form to be filed may be used for the registration or qualification for distribution of Registrable Securities, the Company shall give prompt written notice to the Investor and

 

37


all other Holders of its intention to effect such a registration (but in no event less than ten (10) business days prior to the anticipated filing date) and shall include in such registration all Registrable Securities with respect to which the Company has received written requests for inclusion therein within ten (10) business days after the date of the Company’s notice (a “Piggyback Registration”). Any such person that has made such a written request may withdraw its Registrable Securities from such Piggyback Registration by giving written notice to the Company and the managing underwriter, if any, on or before the fifth (5th) business day prior to the planned effective date of such Piggyback Registration. The Company may terminate or withdraw any registration under this Section 4.5(a)(4) prior to the effectiveness of such registration, whether or not the Investor or any other Holders have elected to include Registrable Securities in such registration.

(5) If the registration referred to in Section 4.5(a)(4) is proposed to be underwritten, the Company shall so advise the Investor and all other Holders as a part of the written notice given pursuant to Section 4.5(a)(4). In such event, the right of the Investor and all other Holders to registration pursuant to this Section 4.5(a) shall be conditioned upon such persons’ participation in such underwriting and the inclusion of such person’s Registrable Securities in the underwriting, and each such person shall (together with the Company and the other persons distributing their securities through such underwriting) enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the underwriter or underwriters selected for such underwriting by the Company. If any participating person disapproves of the terms of the underwriting, such person may elect to withdraw therefrom by written notice to the Company, the managing underwriter and the Investor.

(6) Except for the registration rights granted to certain other investors in the Primary Investment Transactions and Secondary Treasury Sales, the Company represents and warrants that it has not granted to any holder of its securities and agrees that it shall not grant “piggyback” registration rights to one or more third parties to include their securities in the Shelf Registration Statement or in an underwritten offering under the Shelf Registration Statement pursuant to Section 4.5(a)(2). If (x) the Company grants “piggyback” registration rights to certain other investors in the Primary Investment Transactions and Secondary Treasury Sales to include their securities in an underwritten offering under the Shelf Registration Statement pursuant to Section 4.5(a)(2) or (y) a Piggyback Registration under Section 4.5(a)(4) relates to an underwritten primary offering on behalf of the Company, and in either case the managing underwriters advise the Company that in their reasonable opinion the number of securities requested to be included in such offering exceeds the number which can be sold without adversely affecting the marketability of such offering (including an adverse effect on the per share offering price), the Company shall include in such registration or prospectus only such number of securities that in the reasonable opinion of such underwriters can be sold without adversely affecting the marketability of the offering (including an adverse effect on the per share offering price), which securities shall be so included in the following order of priority: (i) first, in the case of a Piggyback Registration under Section 4.5(a)(4), the securities the Company proposes to sell, (ii) second, Registrable Securities of the Investor and all other Holders who have requested registration of Registrable Securities pursuant to Sections 4.5(a)(2) or 4.5(a)(4) of this Agreement, as applicable, pro rata on the basis of the aggregate number of such securities or shares subject to such request and (iii) third, any other securities of the Company that have been requested to be so included, subject to the terms of this Agreement.

 

38


(b) Expenses of Registration. All Registration Expenses incurred in connection with any registration, qualification or compliance hereunder shall be borne by the Company. Without limiting the foregoing, the Company shall bear its internal expenses (including all salaries and expenses of their officers and employees performing legal, accounting or other duties) and expenses of any person, including special experts, retained by the Company. All Selling Expenses incurred in connection with any registrations hereunder shall be borne by the Holders selling in such registration pro rata on the basis of the aggregate number of securities or shares being sold.

(c) Obligations of the Company. The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts for so long as there are Registrable Securities outstanding, to take such actions as are under its control to remain a well-known seasoned issuer (as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act) if it becomes eligible for such status in the future and not become an ineligible issuer (as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act). In addition, whenever required to effect the registration of any Registrable Securities or facilitate the distribution of Registrable Securities pursuant to an effective Shelf Registration Statement, the Company shall, as expeditiously as reasonably practicable:

(1) By 9:30 a.m., New York City time on the first business day after the Effective Date of a Shelf Registration Statement, file a final prospectus with the SEC as required by Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act.

(2) Provide to each Holder a copy of any disclosure regarding the plan of distribution or the selling Holder, in each case, with respect to such Holder, at least three (3) business days in advance of any filing with the SEC of any registration statement or any amendment or supplement thereto that amends such information.

(3) Prepare and file with the SEC a prospectus supplement with respect to a proposed offering of Registrable Securities pursuant to an effective registration statement and, subject to this Section 4.5(c), keep such registration statement effective or such prospectus supplement current.

(4) Prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements to the applicable registration statement and the prospectus or prospectus supplement used in connection with such registration statement as may be necessary to comply with the provisions of the Securities Act with respect to the disposition of all securities covered by such registration statement.

(5) Furnish to the Holders and any underwriters such number of correct and complete copies of the applicable registration statement and each such amendment and supplement thereto (including in each case all exhibits) and of a prospectus, including a preliminary prospectus, in conformity with the requirements of the Securities Act, and such other documents as they may reasonably request in order to facilitate the disposition of Registrable Securities owned or to be distributed by them.

 

39


(6) Use its reasonable best efforts to register and qualify the securities covered by such registration statement under such other securities or blue sky laws of such jurisdictions as shall be reasonably requested by the Holders or any managing underwriter(s), to keep such registration or qualification in effect for so long as such registration statement remains in effect, and to take any other action which may be reasonably necessary to enable such seller to consummate the disposition in such jurisdictions of the securities owned by such Holder; provided that the Company shall not be required in connection therewith or as a condition thereto to qualify to do business or to file a general consent to service of process in any such states or jurisdictions.

(7) Notify each Holder of Registrable Securities at any time when a prospectus relating thereto is required to be delivered under the Securities Act of the happening of any event as a result of which the applicable prospectus, as then in effect, includes an untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in light of the circumstances then existing (which notice shall not contain any material non-public information).

(8) Give written notice to the Holders:

 

  (A) when any registration statement filed pursuant to Section 4.5(a) or any amendment thereto has been filed with the SEC (except for any amendment effected by the filing of a document with the SEC pursuant to the Exchange Act) and when such registration statement or any post-effective amendment thereto has become effective;

 

  (B) of any request by the SEC for amendments or supplements to any registration statement or the prospectus included therein or for additional information;

 

  (C) of the issuance by the SEC of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of any registration statement or the initiation of any proceedings for that purpose;

 

  (D) of the receipt by the Company or its legal counsel of any notification with respect to the suspension of the qualification of the Common Stock for sale in any jurisdiction or the initiation or threatening of any proceeding for such purpose;

 

  (E) of the happening of any event that requires the Company to make changes in any effective registration statement or the prospectus related to the registration statement in order to make the statements therein not misleading (which notice shall be accompanied by an instruction to suspend the use of the prospectus until the requisite changes have been made); and

 

40


  (F) if at any time the representations and warranties of the Company contained in any underwriting agreement contemplated by Section 4.5(c)(12) cease to be true and correct, in each case which notice shall not contain any material nonpublic information.

(9) Use its reasonable best efforts to prevent the issuance or obtain the withdrawal of any order suspending the effectiveness of any registration statement referred to in Section 4.5(c)(8)(C) at the earliest practicable time.

(10) Upon the occurrence of any event contemplated by Section 4.5(c)(7) or 4.5(c)(8)(E) and subject to the Company’s rights under Section 4.5(d), the Company shall promptly prepare a post-effective amendment to such registration statement or a supplement to the related prospectus or file any other required document so that, as thereafter delivered to the Holders and any underwriters, the prospectus shall not contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.

(11) Use reasonable best efforts to procure the cooperation of the Company’s transfer agent in settling any offering or sale of Registrable Securities, including with respect to the transfer of physical stock certificates into book-entry form in accordance with any procedures reasonably requested by the Holders or any managing underwriter(s).

(12) If an underwritten offering is requested pursuant to Section 4.5(a)(2), enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form, scope and substance and take all such other actions reasonably requested by the Holders of a majority of the Registrable Securities being sold in connection therewith or by the managing underwriter(s), if any, to expedite or facilitate the underwritten disposition of such Registrable Securities, and in connection therewith in any underwritten offering (including making members of management and executives of the Company available to participate in “road shows,” similar sales events and other marketing activities), (i) make such representations and warranties to the Holders that are selling stockholders and the managing underwriter(s), if any, with respect to the business of the Company and the Company Subsidiaries, and the Shelf Registration Statement, prospectus and documents, if any, incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference therein, in each case, in customary form, substance and scope, and, if true, confirm the same if and when requested, (ii) use its reasonable best efforts to furnish the underwriters with opinions of counsel to the Company, addressed to the managing underwriter(s), if any, covering the matters customarily covered in such opinions requested in underwritten offerings, (iii) use its reasonable best efforts to obtain “cold comfort” letters from the independent certified public accountants of the Company (and, if necessary, any other independent

 

41


certified public accountants of any business acquired by the Company for which financial statements and financial data are included in the Shelf Registration Statement) who have certified the financial statements included in such Shelf Registration Statement, addressed to each of the managing underwriter(s), if any, such letters to be in customary form and covering matters of the type customarily covered in “cold comfort” letters, (iv) if an underwriting agreement is entered into, the same shall contain indemnification provisions and procedures customary in underwritten offerings, and (v) deliver such documents and certificates as may be reasonably requested by the Holders of a majority of the Registrable Securities being sold in connection therewith, their counsel and the managing underwriter(s), if any, to evidence the continued validity of the representations and warranties made pursuant to clause (i) above and to evidence compliance with any customary conditions contained in the underwriting agreement or other agreement entered into by the Company.

(13) Make available for inspection by a representative of Holders that are selling stockholders, the managing underwriter(s), if any, and any attorneys or accountants retained by such Holders or managing underwriter(s), at the offices where normally kept, during reasonable business hours, financial and other records, pertinent corporate documents and properties of the Company, and cause the officers, directors and employees of the Company to supply all information, in each case, reasonably requested by any such representative, managing underwriter(s), attorney or accountant in connection with such Shelf Registration Statement.

(14) Cause all such Registrable Securities to be listed on each securities exchange on which similar securities issued by the Company are then listed or, if no similar securities are then listed on any securities exchange, use its reasonable best efforts to cause all such Registrable Securities to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange or the NASDAQ, as determined by the Company, including, but not limited to, using commercially reasonable efforts to effect a reverse stock split (including any shareholder approvals in connection therewith), at a ratio sufficient to satisfy the minimum bid price requirements for listing the Common Stock on the New York Stock Exchange or the NASDAQ.

(15) If requested by Holders of a majority of the Registrable Securities being registered and/or sold in connection therewith, or the managing underwriter(s), if any, promptly include in a prospectus supplement or amendment such information as the Holders of a majority of the Registrable Securities being registered and/or sold in connection therewith or managing underwriter(s), if any, may reasonably request in order to permit the intended method of distribution of such securities and make all required filings of such prospectus supplement or such amendment as soon as practicable after the Company has received such request.

(16) Timely provide to its security holders earning statements satisfying the provisions of Section 11(a) of the Securities Act and Rule 158 thereunder.

 

42


(d) Suspension of Sales. During (i) any Scheduled Black-out Period (other than with respect to any resale of Registrable Securities from an effective Shelf Registration Statement if the Investor, at such time, does not have an Investor Designated Director or has not appointed an Observer) or (ii) upon receipt of written notice from the Company that a registration statement, prospectus or prospectus supplement contains or may contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omits or may omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading or that circumstances exist that make inadvisable use of such registration statement, prospectus or prospectus supplement, each Holder of Registrable Securities shall forthwith discontinue disposition of Registrable Securities pursuant to such registration statement until termination of such Scheduled Black-out Period (if applicable) or until such Holder has received copies of a supplemented or amended prospectus or prospectus supplement, or until such Holder is advised in writing by the Company that the use of the prospectus and, if applicable, prospectus supplement may be resumed, and, if so directed by the Company, such Holder shall deliver to the Company (at the Company’s expense) all copies, other than permanent file copies then in such Holder’s possession, of the prospectus and, if applicable, prospectus supplement covering such Registrable Securities current at the time of receipt of such notice. The total number of days that any such suspension under clause (ii) of the foregoing may be in effect in any twelve (12)-month period shall not exceed ninety (90) days.

(e) Termination of Registration Rights. A Holder’s registration rights as to any securities held by such Holder (and its Affiliates, partners, members and former members) shall not be available unless such securities are Registrable Securities.

(f) Furnishing Information.

(1) Neither the Investor nor any Holder shall use any free writing prospectus (as defined in Rule 405) in connection with the sale of Registrable Securities without the prior written consent of the Company.

(2) It shall be a condition precedent to the obligations of the Company to take any action pursuant to Section 4.5(c) that the Investor and/or the selling Holders and the underwriters, if any, shall furnish to the Company such information regarding themselves, the Registrable Securities held by them and the intended method of disposition of such securities as shall be required to effect the registered offering of their Registrable Securities.

(g) Indemnification.

(1) The Company agrees to indemnify each Holder and, if a Holder is a person other than an individual, such Holder’s officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, investment advisors and Affiliates, and each person, if any, that controls a Holder within the meaning of the Securities Act (each, an “Indemnitee”), against any and all Losses, joint or several, arising out of or based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of material fact contained in any registration statement, including any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein or any amendments or supplements thereto or any documents incorporated therein by reference or contained in any free writing prospectus (as such term is defined in Rule 405) prepared by the Company or authorized by it in writing for use by such Holder (or any amendment

 

43


or supplement thereto); or any omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; provided that the Company shall not be liable to such Indemnitee in any such case to the extent that any such Losses arise out of or are based upon (i) an untrue statement or omission made in such registration statement, including any such preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein or any such amendments or supplements thereto or contained in any free writing prospectus (as such term is defined in Rule 405) prepared by the Company or authorized by it in writing for use by such Holder (or any amendment or supplement thereto), in reliance upon and in conformity with information regarding such Indemnitee or its plan of distribution or ownership interests which was furnished in writing to the Company by such Indemnitee expressly for use in connection with such registration statement, including any such preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein or any such amendments or supplements thereto, or (ii) offers or sales effected by or on behalf such Indemnitee “by means of” (as defined in Rule 159A) a “free writing prospectus” (as defined in Rule 405) that was not authorized in writing by the Company. In the event of any third party claim asserted against any Indemnitee, the procedures set forth in Section 4.3(b) shall apply to the defense of any such claim.

(2) If the indemnification provided for in Section 4.5(g)(1) is unavailable to an Indemnitee with respect to any Losses or is insufficient to hold the Indemnitee harmless as contemplated therein, then the Company, in lieu of indemnifying such Indemnitee, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnitee as a result of such Losses in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Indemnitee, on the one hand, and the Company, on the other hand, in connection with the statements or omissions which resulted in such Losses as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of the Company, on the one hand, and of the Indemnitee, on the other hand, shall be determined by reference to, among other factors, whether the untrue statement of a material fact or omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the Company or by the Indemnitee and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission; the Company and each Holder agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 4.5(g)(2) were determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation that does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in Section 4.5(g)(1). No Indemnitee guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from the Company if the Company was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.

(3) The indemnity and contribution agreements contained in this Section 4.5(g) are in addition to any liability that the Company may have to the Indemnitees and are not in diminution or limitation of the indemnification provisions under Section 4.3 of this Agreement.

 

44


(h) Assignment of Registration Rights. The rights of the Investor to registration of Registrable Securities pursuant to Section 4.5(a) may be assigned by the Investor to a transferee or assignee of Registrable Securities to which (i) there is transferred to such transferee no less than twenty five percent (25%) of all Registrable Securities held by it and (ii) such Transfer is permitted under the terms hereof; provided, however, that the transferor shall, within ten (10) days after such transfer, furnish to the Company written notice of the name and address of such transferee or assignee and the number and type of Registrable Securities that are being assigned.

(i) Holdback. With respect to any underwritten offering of Registrable Securities by the Investor or other Holders pursuant to this Section 4.5, the Company agrees not to effect (other than pursuant to such registration or pursuant to a Special Registration) any public sale or distribution, or to file any Shelf Registration Statement (other than such registration or a Special Registration) covering any of its equity securities, or any securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for such securities, during the period not to exceed ten (10) days prior and sixty (60) days following the effective date of such offering or such longer period up to ninety (90) days as may be requested by the managing underwriter. The Company also agrees to cause each of its directors and senior executive officers to execute and deliver customary lockup agreements in such form and for such time period up to ninety (90) days as may be requested by the managing underwriter. “Special Registration” means the registration of (i) equity securities and/or options or other rights in respect thereof solely registered on Form S-4 or Form S-8 (or successor form) or (ii) shares of equity securities and/or options or other rights in respect thereof to be offered to directors, members of management, employees, consultants, customers, lenders or vendors of the Company or Company Subsidiaries or in connection with dividend reinvestment plans.

(j) Rule 144. With a view to making available to the Investor and Holders the benefits of certain rules and regulations of the SEC which may permit the sale of the Registrable Securities to the public without registration, the Company agrees to use its reasonable best efforts to:

(1) make and keep adequate and current public information with respect to the Company available, as those terms are understood and defined in Rule 144(c)(1) or any similar or analogous rule promulgated under the Securities Act, at all times after the effective date of this Agreement;

(2) file with the SEC, in a timely manner, all reports and other documents required of the Company under the Exchange Act, and if at any time the Company is not required to file such reports, make available, upon the request of any Holder, such information necessary to permit sales pursuant to Rule 144A (including the information required by Rule 144A(d)(4) and the Securities Act);

(3) so long as the Investor or a Holder owns any Registrable Securities, furnish to the Investor or such Holder forthwith upon request: (x) a written statement by the Company as to its compliance with the reporting requirements of Rule 144 under the Securities Act, and of the Exchange Act; (y) a copy of the most recent annual or quarterly report of the Company; and (z) such other reports and documents as the Investor or Holder may reasonably request in availing itself of any rule or regulation of the SEC allowing it to sell any such securities without registration; and

 

45


(4) to take such further action as any Holder may reasonably request, all to the extent required from time to time to enable such Holder to sell Registrable Securities without registration under the Securities Act.

(k) As used in this Section 4.5, the following terms shall have the following respective meanings:

(1) “Holder” means the Investor and any other holder of Registrable Securities to whom the registration rights conferred by this Agreement have been transferred in compliance with Section 4.5(h) hereof.

(2) “Holders’ Counsel” means one counsel for the selling Holders chosen by Holders holding a majority interest in the Registrable Securities being registered.

(3) “Register,” “registered” and “registration” shall refer to a registration effected by preparing and (a) filing a registration statement in compliance with the Securities Act and applicable rules and regulations thereunder, and the declaration or ordering of effectiveness of such registration statement or (b) filing a prospectus and/or prospectus supplement in respect of an appropriate effective registration statement on Form S-3.

(4) “Registrable Securities” means (A) all Common Stock held by the Investor from time to time and (B) any equity securities issued or issuable directly or indirectly with respect to the Common Stock referred to in the foregoing clause (a) by way of conversion, exercise or exchange thereof or stock dividend or stock split or in connection with a combination of shares, recapitalization, reclassification, merger, amalgamation, arrangement, consolidation or other reorganization, provided that, once issued, such securities shall not be Registrable Securities when (i) they are sold pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act, (ii) they may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 without limitation thereunder on volume or manner of sale and without the requirement for the Company to be in compliance with the current public information requirements under Rule 144(c)(1) (or Rule 144(i)(2), if applicable), (iii) they shall have ceased to be outstanding or (iv) they have been sold in a private transaction in which the transferor’s rights under this Agreement are not assigned to the transferee of the securities. No Registrable Securities may be registered under more than one registration statement at one time.

(5) “Registration Expenses” means all expenses incurred by the Company in effecting any registration pursuant to this Agreement (whether or not any registration or prospectus becomes effective or final) or otherwise complying with its obligations under this Section 4.5, including, without limitation, all registration, filing and listing fees, printing expenses, fees and disbursements of counsel for the Company, blue sky fees and expenses, expenses incurred in connection with any “road show,” the reasonable fees and disbursements of Holders’ Counsel (not to exceed $50,000), and expenses of the Company’s independent accountants in connection with any regular or special reviews or audits incident to or required by any such registration, but shall not include Selling Expenses.

 

46


(6) “Rule 144,” “Rule 144A,” “Rule 158,” “Rule 159A,” “Rule 405”, “Rule 415” and “Rule 424” mean, in each case, such rule promulgated under the Securities Act (or any successor provision), as the same shall be amended from time to time.

(7) “Scheduled Black-out Period” means the period from and including the fifteenth (15th) day of the third (3rd) month of a fiscal quarter of the Company to and including the business day after the day on which the Company publicly releases its earnings for such fiscal quarter.

(8) “Selling Expenses” means all discounts, selling commissions and stock transfer taxes applicable to the sale of Registrable Securities and fees and disbursements of counsel for any Holder (other than the fees and disbursements of Holders’ Counsel included in Registration Expenses).

(l) At any time, any holder of Registrable Securities (including any Holder) may elect to forfeit its rights set forth in this Section 4.5 from that date forward; provided, that a Holder forfeiting such rights shall nonetheless be entitled to participate under Sections 4.5(a)(4)-(6) in any Pending Underwritten Offering to the same extent that such Holder would have been entitled to if the holder had not withdrawn; and provided, further, that no such forfeiture shall terminate a Holder’s rights or obligations under Section 4.5(f) with respect to any prior registration or Pending Underwritten Offering. “Pending Underwritten Offering” means, with respect to any Holder forfeiting its rights pursuant to this Section 4.5(l), any underwritten offering of Registrable Securities in which such Holder has advised the Company of its intent to register its Registrable Securities either pursuant to Section 4.5(a)(2) or Section 4.5(a)(4) prior to the date of such Holder’s forfeiture.

4.6 Takeover Laws; No Rights Triggered.

(a) If any Takeover Law may become, or may purport to be, applicable to the Transactions or the Secondary Treasury Sales, the Company and the members of the Board of Directors shall grant such approvals and take such actions as are necessary so that the Transactions or the Secondary Treasury Sales may be consummated, as promptly as practicable, on the terms contemplated by this Agreement and the Secondary Sale Agreement, as the case may be, and otherwise act to eliminate or minimize the effects of any Takeover Law on any of the Transactions or the Secondary Treasury Sales.

(b) The Company and the Board of Directors hereby agree not to deem or treat the Investor and each of its “Permissible Transferees” as an “Acquiring Person” (as defined in the Company Rights Agreement) as a result of the consummation of the Transactions and the Secondary Treasury Sale, including the purchase of the Purchased Shares or the transfer of any Purchased Shares to a “Permissible Transferee.”

 

47


4.7 Avoidance of Control.

(a) Each of the Company and the Investor agrees to cooperate and use its reasonable best efforts to ensure that none of the Investor nor any of its Affiliates will become, control, or be deemed to control a “savings and loan holding company” within the meaning of the HOLA. The Company shall not knowingly take any action which would reasonably be expected to result in any of the Investor or its Affiliates becoming, or controlling, a “savings and loan holding company” within the meaning of the HOLA.

(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, neither the Company nor any Company Subsidiary shall knowingly take any action (including any redemption, repurchase, or recapitalization of Common Stock or securities or rights, options or warrants to purchase Common Stock, or securities of any type whatsoever that are, or may become, convertible into or exchangeable into or exercisable for Common Stock in each case, where the Investor is not given the right to participate in such redemption, repurchase or recapitalization to the extent of the Investor’s pro rata portion), that would reasonably be expected to pose a substantial risk that (i) the Investor’s equity of the Company (together with equity of the Company owned by the Investor’s Affiliates (as such term is used under the HOLA)) would exceed 24.99% of the Company’s total equity or (ii) the Investor’s ownership of any class of voting securities of the Company (together with the ownership by Investor’s Affiliates (as such term is used under the HOLA) of voting securities of the Company) would exceed 9.9% of such class, in each case without the prior written consent of Investor.

(c) The Investor shall not take, permit or allow any action that would cause any Company Subsidiary to become a “commonly controlled insured depository institution” (as that term is defined for purposes of 12 U.S.C. §1815(e), as may be amended or supplemented from time to time, and any successor thereto) with respect to any institution that is not a direct or indirect Company Subsidiary.

(d) In the event that either party hereto, as applicable, breaches its obligations under this Section 4.7 or believes that it is reasonably likely to breach such obligations, it shall immediately notify the other party and shall cooperate in good faith with such other party to modify an ownership or other arrangements or take any other action, in each case, as is necessary to cure or avoid such breach.

4.8 ERISA Matters. Investor and, at the Investor’s request, each Affiliate thereof that directly or indirectly has an interest in the Investor, the Company or the Bank, in each case, that is intended to qualify as a “venture capital operating company” as defined in the regulations (the “Plan Asset Regulations”) issued by the Department of Labor at Section 2510.3 101 of Part 2510 of Chapter XXV, Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, as the same may be amended from time to time (a “VCOC” and each such person a “VCOC Investor”), will have customary VCOC rights, including the right to receive regular financial reports (including, but not limited to, audited annual and quarterly financial reports), information regarding significant corporate actions, the right to inspect the books and records of the Company, and the right to consult with management of the Company on matters relating to the business and affairs of the Company; provided, however, that this provision shall not entitle any VCOC Investor to (a) designate any members of the Board of Directors, except as provided above under Section 4.1 or

 

48


(b) consult with management of the Company on matters relating to the business and affairs of the Company more than once per quarter. The Company agrees to consider, in good faith, the recommendations of the VCOC Investor or its designated representative in connection with the matters on which it is consulted as described above, recognizing that the ultimate discretion with respect to all such matters shall be retained by the Company and each of the Company Subsidiaries, as the case may be.

6.11 Captions. The article, section, paragraph and clause captions herein are for convenience of reference only, do not constitute part of this Agreement and will not be deemed to limit or otherwise affect any of the provisions hereof.

6.12 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement or the application thereof to any person (including the officers and directors of the Investor and the Company) or circumstance is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions hereof, or the application of such provision to persons or circumstances other than those as to which it has been held invalid or unenforceable, will remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, impaired or invalidated thereby, so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party. Upon such determination, the parties shall negotiate in good faith in an effort to agree upon a suitable and equitable substitute provision to effect the original intent of the parties. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed to require the Company or the Board of Directors or any other person or entity to take any action or fail to take any action that is contrary to law, whether statutory, common law or otherwise.

The representations and warranties set forth in ARTICLE II and the covenants set forth in ARTICLE III and ARTICLE IV have been made solely for the benefit of the parties to this Agreement and (a) may be intended not as statements of fact, but rather as a way of allocating the risk to one of the parties if those statements prove to be inaccurate; (b) have been qualified by reference to the Disclosure Schedule, which contains certain disclosures that are not reflected in the text of this Agreement; and (c) may apply standards of materiality in a way that is different from what may be viewed as material by shareholders of, or other investors in, the Company.
