Item 1.01  Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement

On December 5, 2016, MVB Financial Corp. (OTC Markets Group OTCQB: MVBF) entered into Securities Purchase Agreements (the “Purchase Agreements”) with certain accredited investors (the “Investors”). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreements, the Investors agreed to purchase an aggregate of 1,913,044 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $1.00 per share (the “Common Stock”), at a price of $11.50 per share, as part of a private placement (the “Private Placement”). The Private Placement closed on or about December 6, 2016. The gross proceeds to the Company from the Private Placement were approximately $22 million. The proceeds from the Private Placement will be used by the Company to pay related transaction fees and expenses and for general corporate purposes. A portion of the proceeds may be used for the redemption of the preferred stock issued to the United States Department of Treasury in connection with the Company’s participation in the Small Business Lending Fund.
The Purchase Agreements contain representations and warranties and covenants of the Company and the Investors that are customary in private placement transactions. The provisions of the Purchase Agreements also include an agreement by the Company to indemnify the Investors against certain liabilities.
The Purchase Agreements require the Company to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to register for resale the 1,913,044 shares of common stock issued to the Investors in the Private Placement. The registration statement must be filed no later than 30 days after the closing of the Private Placement and the Company must use best efforts to cause such registration statement to be declared effective, subject to certain exceptions, the earlier of (i) the 120th calendar day following the closing of the Private Placement in the event that such registration statement is subject to review by the SEC and (ii) if the Company is notified by the SEC that such registration statement will not be reviewed, then 90 calendar days following the closing of the Private Placement.

The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreements in the form filed as Exhibits 10.1, which is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 3.02  Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities


The information regarding the Private Placement set forth under Item 1.01 is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02. The issuance of shares of Common Stock pursuant to the Private Placement is a private placement to “accredited investors” (as that term is defined under Rule 501 of Regulation D), and is exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 (“Securities Act”), in reliance upon Section 4(2) of the Securities Act and Regulation D Rule 506, as a transaction by an issuer not involving a public offering.


Item 8.01  Other Events

On December 6, 2016, the Company issued a press release announcing entry into the Purchase Agreements and closing of the Private Placement. A copy of the Press Release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

Section 2: EX-10.1 (EXHIBIT 10.1)

Exhibit

Exhibit 10.1

SECURITIES PURCHASE AGREEMENT
THIS SECURITIES PURCHASE AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”) is made as of the 5th day of December, 2016, by and between MVB Financial Corp. (the “Company”), a corporation organized under the laws of the State of West Virginia, with its principal offices at 301 Virginia Avenue, Fairmont, West Virginia 26554 and the purchaser whose name and address is set forth on the signature page hereof (the “Purchaser”).
IN CONSIDERATION of the mutual covenants contained in this Agreement, the Company and the Purchaser agree as follows:
SECTION 1.Authorization of Sale of the Shares. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreements (as defined below), the Company has authorized the issuance and sale of up to an aggregate of 1,913,044 shares (the “Shares”) of common stock, $1.00 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), of the Company.
SECTION 2.    Agreement to Sell and Purchase the Shares. At the Closing (as defined in Section 3), the Company will, subject to the terms of this Agreement, issue and sell to the Purchaser and the Purchaser will buy from the Company, upon the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, the number of Shares set forth on the signature page attached hereto at the purchase price per share of $11.50. The Company proposes to enter into the same form of securities purchase agreement with certain other investors (the “Other Purchasers”) and expects to complete sales of the Shares to them. The Purchaser and the Other Purchasers are hereinafter sometimes collectively referred to as the “Purchasers,” and this Agreement and the securities purchase agreements executed by the Other Purchasers are hereinafter sometimes collectively referred to as the “Agreements.” The term “Placement Agent” shall mean Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to permit or require the Purchaser to purchase a number of Shares that, after taking into account all Shares to be issued pursuant to the Agreements, would cause the Purchaser, together with any other person whose Company securities would be aggregated with the Purchaser’s Company securities for purposes of any banking regulation or law, to collectively be deemed to own, control or have the power to vote shares of Common Stock which would represent more than 9.9% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding (the “Ownership Limitation”). If, but for this sentence, after taking into account all Shares to be issued pursuant to the Agreements, the purchase of Shares at the Closing would otherwise cause the Purchaser to exceed the Ownership Limitation, then the number of Shares to be purchased by the Purchaser hereunder at the Closing shall be automatically reduced by the minimum amount necessary to ensure that the Ownership Limitation is not exceeded by the Purchaser at Closing (in which case the Purchaser’s aggregate purchase price shall be proportionately reduced).





SECTION 3.    Delivery of the Shares at the Closing. The completion of the purchase and sale of the Shares (the “Closing”) shall occur at the offices of LeClairRyan, 919 East Main Street, 24th Floor, Richmond, Virginia 23219 as soon as practicable and as agreed to by the parties hereto, within seven days following the execution of the Agreements (but no earlier than the first business day after the date of this Agreement), or on such later date or at such different location as the parties shall agree in writing, but not prior to the date that the conditions for Closing set forth below have been satisfied or waived by the appropriate party (the “Closing Date”).
At the Closing, (i) the Company shall deliver to the Purchaser (or its designated custodian per its delivery instructions) one or more stock certificates (or facsimiles or .pdf scanned copies of stock certificates with physical stock certificates to follow) registered in the name of the Purchaser, or in such nominee name(s) as designated by the Purchaser in writing, representing the number of Shares set forth on the signature page attached hereto and bearing an appropriate legend referring to the fact that the 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(a)(2) thereof and Rule 506 thereunder and (ii) upon receipt of the facsimiles or .pdf scanned copies of stock certificates, the Purchaser shall deliver, in immediately available funds, the full amount of the purchase price for the Shares being purchased hereunder by wire transfer to an account designated by the Company. For purposes of clarity, the Purchaser shall not be required to wire its aggregate purchase price until it (or its designated custodian per its delivery instructions) confirms receipt of its Shares. The Company will promptly substitute one or more replacement certificates without the legend at such time as the registration statement filed by the Company pursuant to Section 7.1 hereof (the “Registration Statement”) becomes effective. The name(s) in which the stock certificates are to be registered are set forth in the Securities Certificate Questionnaire attached hereto as Appendix I.
The Company’s obligation to complete the purchase and sale of the Shares and deliver such stock certificates to the Purchaser at the Closing shall be subject to the following conditions, any one or more of which may be waived by the Company: (a) following the Purchaser’s receipt of its Shares, receipt by the Company of same-day funds in the full amount of the purchase price for the Shares being purchased hereunder; (b) concurrent completion of the purchases and sales under the Agreements with the Other Purchasers; and (c) the accuracy of the representations and warranties made by the Purchasers and the fulfillment of any and all undertakings of the Purchasers prior to the Closing.
The Purchaser’s obligation to accept delivery of such stock certificates and to pay for the Shares evidenced thereby shall be subject to the following conditions:
(i)    each of the representations and warranties of the Company made herein shall be accurate in all material respects as of the date of this Agreement and as of the Closing date, as

-2-




though made on and as of such date, except for such representations and warranties that speak as of a specific date;
(ii)    the delivery to the Placement Agent on behalf of the Purchaser by Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP, counsel to the Company, and Spilman Thomas & Battle, PLLC, counsel to the Company with respect to certain matters of West Virginia law, of legal opinions in a form reasonably satisfactory to counsel for the Placement Agent, and the Purchaser shall be expressly permitted to rely on such opinions;
(iii)    receipt by the Purchaser of a certificate executed by the chief executive officer or the chief financial or accounting officer of the Company, dated as of the Closing Date, to the effect that the representations and warranties of the Company set forth herein are true and correct in all material respects (except to the extent that any of such representations and warranties is qualified by materiality or Material Adverse Effect (as defined in Section 4.5 below), in such case, such representations and warranties shall be accurate in all respects) as of the date of this Agreement and as of such Closing Date, as though made on and as of such date, except for such representations and warranties that speak as of a specific date, and that the Company has complied in all material respects with all the agreements and satisfied all the conditions herein on its part to be performed or satisfied on or prior to such Closing Date;
(iv)    receipt by the Purchaser of a certificate executed by the secretary of the Company, dated as of the Closing Date, (a) certifying the resolutions adopted by the Board of Directors of the Company or a duly authorized committee thereof approving the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the issuance of the Shares, (b) certifying the current versions of the Company’s articles of incorporation and bylaws, each as amended, and (c) certifying as to the signatures and authority of persons signing the this Agreement and the related transaction documents on behalf of the Company;
(v)    the fulfillment in all material respects of those undertakings of the Company to be fulfilled prior to Closing;
(vi)    The Company shall receive at the Closing aggregate gross proceeds from the sale of Shares to all Purchasers of at least $22 million, at a price per share equal to $11.50, and shall simultaneously issue and deliver at the Closing to the Purchasers an aggregate number of Shares equal to such gross proceeds divided by such price per share;
(vii)    The purchase of Shares by the Purchaser shall not (i) cause the Purchaser or any of its affiliates to violate any banking regulation, (ii) require the Purchaser or any of its affiliates to file a prior notice under the Change in Bank Control Act (the “CIBC Act”), or otherwise seek prior approval of any banking regulator, (iii) require the Purchaser or any of its affiliates to become a bank holding company or otherwise serve as a source of strength for the Company or any subsidiary

-3-




or (iv) cause the Purchaser, together with any other person whose Company securities would be aggregated with the Purchaser’s Company securities for purposes of any banking regulation or law, to collectively be deemed to own, control or have the power to vote securities which would represent more than 9.9% of any class of voting securities of the Company outstanding at such time;
(viii)    since the date hereof, there shall not be any action taken, or any law, rule or regulation enacted, entered, enforced or deemed applicable to the Company or its subsidiaries, the Purchaser (or its affiliates) or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, by any bank regulatory authority which imposes any restriction or condition on the Company or its subsidiaries or the Purchaser or any of its affiliates (other than such restrictions as are described in any passivity or anti-association commitments, as may be amended from time to time, entered into by the Purchaser) which the Purchaser determines, in its reasonable good faith judgment, is materially and unreasonably burdensome on the Company’s business following the Closing or on the Purchaser (or any of its affiliates) or would reduce the economic benefits of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement to the Purchaser to such a degree that the Purchaser would not have entered into this Agreement had such condition or restriction been known to it on the date hereof (any such condition or restriction, a “Burdensome Condition”), and, for the avoidance of doubt, any requirements to disclose the identities of limited partners, shareholders or non-managing members of the Purchaser or its affiliates or its investment advisers shall be deemed a Burdensome Condition unless otherwise determined by the Purchaser in its sole discretion;
(ix)    the Common Stock (i) shall be designated for listing and quotation on the OTC Markets Group, Inc.’s OTCQB and (ii) shall not have been suspended, as of the Closing Date, by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) or the OTC Markets Group, Inc. from trading on the OTCQB nor shall suspension by the Commission or the OTC Markets Group, Inc. have been threatened, as of the Closing Date, either (A) in writing by the Commission or the OTC Markets Group, Inc. or (B) by falling below the minimum listing maintenance requirements of the OTC Markets Group, Inc.; and
(x)    no Material Adverse Effect (as defined below) shall have occurred since the date of this Agreement.
SECTION 4.    Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Company. The Company hereby represents and warrants to, and covenants with, the Purchaser as follows:
4.1    Organization and Qualification. The Company is a corporation duly incorporated, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of West Virginia and the Company is duly qualified to do business as a foreign corporation in each jurisdiction in which qualification is required, except where failure to so qualify would not have a Material Adverse Effect.

-7-

5.6    Risk of Loss. The Purchaser understands that its investment in the Shares involves a significant degree of risk, including a risk of total loss of the Purchaser’s investment, and the Purchaser has full cognizance of and understands all of the risk factors related to the Purchaser’s purchase of the Shares. The Purchaser understands that no representation is being made as to the future value or market price of the Common Stock.
5.7    Legend. The Purchaser understands that, until such time as the Registration Statement has been declared effective or the 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 Shares will bear a restrictive legend in substantially the following form:

-22-




“THE SECURITIES 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 SECURITIES 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.”
5.8    Stop Transfer. The certificates representing the Shares will be subject to a stop transfer order with the Company’s transfer agent that restricts the transfer of such shares except upon receipt by the transfer agent of a written confirmation, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Company, from the Purchaser to the effect that (A) the Shares have been sold in accordance with the Registration Statement or otherwise in accordance with the Securities Act, including, without limitation, pursuant to Rule 144 thereunder, and (B) in the case of a transfer pursuant to the Registration Statement, the prospectus delivery requirement effectively has been satisfied. At such time as the Shares are no longer required to bear a restrictive legend, the Company agrees that it will, no later than five business days after delivery by the Purchaser to the Company or its transfer agent of a certificate (in the case of a transfer, in the proper form for transfer) representing Shares issued with the foregoing restrictive legend, deliver or cause to be delivered to the Purchaser a certificate representing such Shares that is free from all restrictive and other legends.
5.9    Residency. The Purchaser’s principal executive offices are in the jurisdiction set forth immediately below the Purchaser’s name on the signature pages hereto.
5.10    Public Sale or Distribution. The Purchaser hereby covenants with the Company not to make any sale of the Shares under the Registration Statement without complying with the provisions of this Agreement and without effectively causing the prospectus delivery requirement under the Securities Act to be satisfied (whether physically or through compliance with Rule 172 under the Securities Act or any similar rule), and the Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that such Shares are not transferable on the books of the Company unless the certificate submitted to the transfer agent evidencing the Shares are accompanied by written confirmation, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Company, from the Purchaser to the effect that (A) the Shares have been sold in accordance with the Registration Statement or otherwise in accordance with the Securities Act, including, without limitation, pursuant to Rule 144 thereunder, and (B) in the case of a transfer pursuant to the Registration Statement, the prospectus delivery requirement

-23-




effectively has been satisfied. The Purchaser acknowledges that there may occasionally be times when the Company must suspend the use of the prospectus (the “Prospectus”) forming a part of the Registration Statement (a “Suspension”) until such time as an amendment to the Registration Statement has been filed by the Company and declared effective by the Commission, or until such time as the Company has filed an appropriate report with the Commission pursuant to the Exchange Act. Without the Company’s prior written consent, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld or delayed, the Purchaser shall not use any written materials to offer the Shares for resale other than the Prospectus, including any “free writing prospectus” as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act. The Purchaser covenants that it will not sell any Shares pursuant to said Prospectus during the period commencing at the time when Company gives the Purchaser written notice of the suspension of the use of said Prospectus and ending at the time when the Company gives the Purchaser written notice that the Purchaser may thereafter effect sales pursuant to said Prospectus. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company agrees that no Suspension shall be for a period of longer than 60 consecutive days, and aggregate Suspensions in any 365-day period shall not be for a period longer than 90 days in the aggregate.
5.11    Organization; Validity; Enforcements. The Purchaser further represents and warrants to, and covenants with, the Company that (i) the Purchaser has full right, power, authority and capacity to enter into this Agreement and to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby and has taken all necessary action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement, (ii) the making and performance of this Agreement by the Purchaser and the consummation of the transactions herein contemplated will not violate any provision of the organizational documents of the Purchaser or conflict with, result in the breach or violation of, or constitute, either by itself or upon notice or the passage of time or both, a default under any material agreement, mortgage, deed of trust, lease, franchise, license, indenture, permit or other instrument to which the Purchaser is a party or, any statute or any authorization, judgment, decree, order, rule or regulation of any court or any regulatory body, administrative agency or other governmental agency or body applicable to the Purchaser, (iii) assuming the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the Company in the Agreements and the performance of the agreements and covenants of the Company contained in the Agreements, no consent, approval, authorization or other order of any court, regulatory body, administrative agency or other governmental agency or body is required on the part of the Purchaser for the execution and delivery of this Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, (iv) upon the execution and delivery of this Agreement, this Agreement shall constitute a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Purchaser, enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other laws of general application relating to or the enforcement of creditor’s rights and the application of equitable principles relating to the availability of remedies, and except as rights to indemnity or contribution, including, but not limited to, the indemnification provisions set forth in Section 7.3 of this Agreement, may be limited by

-24-




federal or state securities laws or the public policy underlying such laws and (v) there is not in effect any order enjoining or restraining the Purchaser from entering into or engaging in any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
5.12    Short Sales. Since November 1, 2016, the Purchaser has not taken, and prior to the public announcement of the transaction after the Closing the Purchaser shall not take, any action that has caused or will cause the Purchaser to have, directly or indirectly, sold or agreed to sell any shares of Common Stock, effected any short sale, whether or not against the box, established any “put equivalent position” (as defined in Rule 16a-1(h) under the Exchange Act with respect to the Common Stock, granted any other right (including, without limitation, any put or call option) with respect to the Common Stock or with respect to any security that includes, relates to or derived any significant part of its value from the Common Stock. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of a Purchaser that is a multi-managed investment vehicle whereby separate portfolio managers manage separate portions of such Purchaser’s assets and the portfolio managers have no direct knowledge of the investment decisions made by the portfolio managers managing other portions of such Purchaser’s assets, the representation set forth above shall only apply with respect to the portion of assets managed by the portfolio manager that made the investment decision to purchase the Shares covered by this Agreement.
SECTION 6.    Survival of Agreements; Non-Survival of Company Representations and Warranties. Notwithstanding any investigation made by any party to this Agreement or by the Placement Agent, all covenants and agreements made by the Company and the Purchaser herein and in the certificates for the Shares delivered pursuant hereto shall survive the execution of this Agreement, the delivery to the Purchaser of the Shares being purchased and the payment therefor. Each Purchaser shall be responsible only for its own representations and warranties, agreements and covenants hereunder. The representations and warranties made by the Company and the Purchaser herein and in the certificates for the Shares delivered pursuant hereto shall survive for a period of one year following the later of the execution of this Agreement or the delivery to the Purchaser of the Shares being purchased and the payment therefor.
SECTION 7.    Registration of the Shares and Compliance with the Securities Act.
7.1    Registration Procedures and Expenses. The Company shall:
(a)    as soon as practicable, but in no event later than thirty (30) days following the Closing Date (the “Filing Deadline”), prepare and file with the Commission the Registration Statement on Form S‑3 relating to the resale of the Shares by the Purchaser and the Other Purchasers from time to time on the facilities of any national securities exchange or over-the-counter market on which the Common Stock is then traded or in privately-negotiated transactions; not less than three (3) business days prior to filing, the

-25-




Company shall provide the Purchaser an opportunity to review and comment on the disclosure regarding the Purchaser;
(b)    use its best efforts, subject to receipt of necessary information from the Purchasers, to cause the Commission to declare the Registration Statement effective by the earlier of (i) 90 days after the Closing Date or, if the Registration Statement is selected for review by the Commission, 120 days after the Closing Date and (ii) the 5th business day after the date the Company is notified (orally or in writing, whichever is earlier) by the Commission that the Registration Statement will not be reviewed or will not be subject to further review (such earlier date, the “Effective Deadline”);
(c)    promptly prepare and file with the Commission such amendments and supplements to the Registration Statement and the prospectus used in connection therewith as may be necessary to keep the Registration Statement effective until the earliest of (i) two years after the effective date of the Registration Statement, (ii) such time as all of the Shares have been sold pursuant to the Registration Statement, or (iii) such time as the Shares become eligible for resale by non-affiliates without any volume limitations or other restrictions pursuant to Rule 144(b)(1)(i) under the Securities Act or any other rule of similar effect, 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);
(d)    furnish to the Purchaser with respect to the Shares registered under the Registration Statement (and to each underwriter, if any, of such Shares) such number of copies of prospectuses and such other documents as the Purchaser may reasonably request, in order to facilitate the public sale or other disposition of all or any of the Shares by the Purchaser;
(e)    bear all expenses in connection with the procedures in paragraphs (a) through (e) of this Section 7.1 and the registration of the Shares pursuant to the Registration Statement, other than fees and expenses, if any, of counsel or other advisers to the Purchaser or the Other Purchasers or underwriting discounts, brokerage fees and commissions incurred by the Purchaser or the Other Purchasers, if any in connection with the offering of the Shares pursuant to the Registration Statement;
(f)    file a Form D with respect to the Shares as required under Regulation D and to provide a copy thereof to the Purchaser promptly after filing; and
(g)    in order to enable the Purchasers to sell the Shares under Rule 144 to the Securities Act, for a period of one year from Closing, use its commercially reasonable efforts to comply with the requirements of Rule 144, including without limitation, use its commercially reasonable efforts to comply with the requirements of Rule 144(c)(1) with

-26-




respect to public information about the Company and to timely file all reports required to be filed by the Company under the Exchange Act.
The Company understands that the Purchaser disclaims being an underwriter. The Purchaser shall not be named as an “underwriter” in any Registration Statement without the Purchaser’s prior written consent. A draft of the proposed form of the questionnaire related to the Registration Statement to be completed by the Purchaser is attached hereto as Appendix I.
7.2    Transfer of Securities After Registration. The Purchaser agrees that it will not effect any disposition of the Shares or its right to purchase the Shares that would constitute a sale within the meaning of the Securities Act or pursuant to any applicable state securities laws, except as contemplated in the Registration Statement referred to in Section 7.1 or as otherwise permitted by law, including, without limitation, pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act.
7.3    Indemnification. For the purpose of this Section 7.3: (i) the term “Purchaser/Affiliate” shall mean any affiliate of the Purchaser, including, without limitation, any general partner or managing member of the Purchaser, any investment adviser of the Purchaser, or any transferee who is an affiliate of the Purchaser, and any person who controls the Purchaser or any affiliate of the Purchaser within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act; and (ii) the term “Registration Statement” shall include any preliminary prospectus, final prospectus, free writing prospectus, exhibit, supplement or amendment included in or relating to, and any document incorporated by reference in, the Registration Statement referred to in Section 7.1.
(a)    The Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Purchaser and each Purchaser/Affiliate, against any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses, joint or several, that the Purchaser or Purchaser/Affiliate incurs, under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, or any other federal or state statutory law or regulation, or at common law or otherwise (including in settlement of any litigation, if such settlement is effected with the written consent of the Company), insofar as such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses (or actions in respect thereof as contemplated below) (i) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the Registration Statement, including the Prospectus, financial statements and schedules, and all other documents filed as a part thereof, as amended at the time of effectiveness of the Registration Statement, including any information deemed to be a part thereof as of the time of effectiveness pursuant to paragraph (b) of Rule 430A, or pursuant to Rules 430B, 430C or 434, of the Rules and Regulations, or the Prospectus, in the form first filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) of the Regulations, or filed as part of the Registration Statement at the time of effectiveness if no Rule 424(b) filing is required or any amendment or supplement thereto, or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission

-27-




to state in any of them a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements in the Registration Statement or any amendment or supplement thereto not misleading or in the Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto not misleading in light of the circumstances under which they were made or (ii) arise out of or are based in whole or in part on any inaccuracy in the representations or warranties of the Company contained in this Agreement, or any failure of the Company to perform its obligations hereunder or under law, and will promptly reimburse each Purchaser and each Purchaser/Affiliate for any legal and other out-of-pocket expenses as such expenses are reasonably incurred and documented by such Purchaser or such Purchaser/Affiliate in connection with investigating, defending or preparing to defend, settling, compromising or paying any such loss, claim, damage, liability, expense or action; provided, however, that the Company will not be liable in any such case to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage, liability or expense arises out of or is based upon (i) the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Purchaser, or (ii) an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by or on behalf of the Purchaser expressly for use therein, or (iii) the failure of such Purchaser to comply with the covenants and agreements contained in Sections 5.10 or 7.2 hereof respecting the sale of the Shares, or (iv) the inaccuracy of any representation or warranty made by such Purchaser herein or (v) any statement or omission in any Prospectus that is corrected in any subsequent Prospectus that was delivered to the Purchaser prior to the pertinent sale or sales by the Purchaser. Any such indemnified Purchaser shall return all payments made hereunder if it is determined, by a final, non-appealable judgment by a court or arbitral tribunal that the losses for which such payments were made resulted from such indemnified Purchaser’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.
(b)    Each Purchaser will severally, but not jointly, indemnify and hold harmless the Company, each of its directors, each of its officers who signed the Registration Statement and each person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act, against any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses that the Company, each of its directors, each of its officers who signed the Registration Statement or controlling person incurs, under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, or any other federal or state statutory law or regulation, or at common law or otherwise (including in settlement of any litigation, but only if such settlement is effected with the written consent of such Purchaser) insofar as such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses (or actions in respect thereof as contemplated below) arise out of or are based upon (i) any failure to comply with the covenants and agreements contained in Sections 5.10 or 7.2 hereof respecting the sale of the Shares or (ii) the inaccuracy of any representation or warranty made by such Purchaser herein or (iii) any untrue or alleged untrue statement

-28-




of any material fact contained in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto, or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements in the Registration Statement or any amendment or supplement thereto not misleading or in the Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto not misleading in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission was made in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto, in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by or on behalf of any Purchaser expressly for use therein; and will reimburse the Company, each of its directors, each of its officers who signed the Registration Statement or controlling person for any legal and other expense reasonably incurred by the Company, each of its directors, each of its officers who signed the Registration Statement or controlling person in connection with investigating, defending, settling, compromising or paying any such loss, claim, damage, liability, expense or action; provided, however, that the Purchaser’s aggregate liability under this Section 7 shall not exceed the amount of net proceeds received by the Purchaser on the sale of the Shares pursuant to the Registration Statement.
(c)    Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under this Section 7.3 of notice of the threat or commencement of any action, such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against an indemnifying party under this Section 7.3 promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing thereof, but the omission to notify the indemnifying party will not relieve it from any liability that it may have to any indemnified party for contribution or otherwise under the indemnity agreement contained in this Section 7.3 to the extent it is not prejudiced as a result of such failure. In case any such action is brought against any indemnified party and such indemnified party seeks or intends to seek indemnity from an indemnifying party, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate in, and, to the extent that it may wish, jointly with all other indemnifying parties similarly notified, to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party; provided, however, if the defendants in any such action include both the indemnifying party and the indemnified party, and the indemnifying party and the indemnified party shall have reasonably concluded, based on an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnifying party, that there may be a conflict of interest between the positions of the indemnifying party and the indemnified party in conducting the defense of any such action or that there may be legal defenses available to it and/or other indemnified parties that are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party, the indemnified party or parties shall have the right to select separate counsel to assume such legal defenses and to otherwise participate in the defense of such action on behalf of such indemnified party or parties. Upon receipt of notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified

-29-




party of its election to assume the defense of such action and approval by the indemnified party of counsel, the indemnifying party will not be liable to such indemnified party under this Section 7.3 for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof unless (i) the indemnified party shall have employed such counsel in connection with the assumption of legal defenses in accordance with the proviso to the preceding sentence (it being understood, however, that the indemnifying party shall not be liable for the expenses of more than one separate counsel, reasonably satisfactory to such indemnifying party, representing all of the indemnified parties who are parties to such action) or (ii) the indemnifying party shall not have employed counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party to represent the indemnified party within a reasonable time after notice of commencement of action, in each of which cases the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel shall be at the expense of the indemnifying party. In no event shall any indemnifying party be liable in respect of any amounts paid in settlement of any action unless the indemnifying party shall have approved in writing the terms of such settlement; provided that such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. No indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the indemnified party, effect any settlement of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which any indemnified party is or could have been a party and indemnification could have been sought hereunder by such indemnified party, unless such settlement includes an unconditional release of such indemnified party from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such proceeding.
(d)    If the indemnification provided for in this Section 7.3 is required by its terms but is for any reason held to be unavailable to or otherwise insufficient to hold harmless an indemnified party under paragraphs (a), (b) or (c) of this Section 7.3 in respect to any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses referred to herein, then each applicable indemnifying party shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses referred to herein (i) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Company and the Purchaser from the private placement of Shares hereunder or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause (i) above is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to in clause (i) above but the relative fault of the Company and the Purchaser in connection with the statements or omissions or inaccuracies in the representations and warranties in this Agreement and/or the Registration Statement that resulted in such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative benefits received by the Company on the one hand and the Purchaser on the other shall be deemed to be in the same proportion as the amount paid by the Purchaser to the Company pursuant to this Agreement for the Shares purchased by the Purchaser that were sold pursuant to the Registration Statement bears to

-30-




the difference (the “Difference”) between the amount the Purchaser paid for the Shares that were sold pursuant to the Registration Statement and the amount received by the Purchaser from such sale. The relative fault of the Company on the one hand and the Purchaser on the other shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact or the inaccurate or the alleged inaccurate representation and/or warranty relates to information supplied by the Company or by the Purchaser and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission. The amount paid or payable by a party as a result of the losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses referred to above shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth in paragraph (c) of this Section 7.3, any legal or other fees or expenses reasonably incurred by such party in connection with investigating or defending any action or claim. The provisions set forth in paragraph (c) of this Section 7.3 with respect to the notice of the threat or commencement of any threat or action shall apply if a claim for contribution is to be made under this paragraph (d); provided, however, that no additional notice shall be required with respect to any threat or action for which notice has been given under paragraph (c) for purposes of indemnification. The Company and the Purchaser agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 7.3 were determined solely by pro rata allocation (even if the Purchaser were treated as one entity for such purpose) or by any other method of allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in this paragraph. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 7.3, the Purchaser shall not be required to contribute any amount in excess of the amount by which the Difference exceeds the amount of any damages that such Purchaser has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission. No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. The Purchasers’ obligations to contribute pursuant to this Section 7.3 are several and not joint.
7.4    Termination of Conditions and Obligations. The restrictions imposed by Section 5.10 or Section 7.2 upon the transferability of the Shares shall cease and terminate as to any particular number of the Shares upon the earlier of (i) the passage of two years from the effective date of the Registration Statement covering such Shares and (ii) at such time as an opinion of counsel satisfactory in form and substance to the Company shall have been rendered to the effect that such conditions are not necessary in order to comply with the Securities Act.
7.5    Information Available. The Company, upon the reasonable request of the Purchaser, shall make available for inspection by each Purchaser, any deemed underwriter participating in any disposition pursuant to the Registration Statement and any attorney, accountant

-31-




or other agent retained by the Purchaser or any deemed underwriter, all financial and other records, pertinent corporate documents and properties of the Company.
SECTION 8.    Broker’s Fee. The Purchaser acknowledges that the Company intends to pay to the Placement Agent a fee in respect of the sale of the Shares to the Purchaser. The Purchaser and the Company agree that the Purchaser shall not be responsible for such fee and that the Company will indemnify and hold harmless the Purchaser and each Purchaser/Affiliate against any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses, joint or several, that such Purchaser or Purchaser/Affiliate incurs with respect to such fee. Each of the parties hereto represents that, on the basis of any actions and agreements by it, there are no other brokers or finders entitled to compensation in connection with the sale of the Shares to the Purchaser.
SECTION 9.    Independent Nature of Purchasers’ Obligations and Rights. The obligations of the Purchaser under this Agreement are several and not joint with the obligations of any Other Purchaser, and no Purchaser shall be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any Other Purchaser under the Agreements. The decision of each Purchaser to purchase the Shares pursuant to the Agreements has been made by such Purchaser independently of any other Purchaser. Nothing contained in the Agreements, and no action taken by any Purchaser pursuant thereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Purchasers as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Purchasers are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by the Agreements. The Purchaser acknowledges that no Other Purchaser has acted as agent for the Purchaser in connection with making its investment hereunder and that no Other Purchaser will be acting as agent of the Purchaser in connection with monitoring its investment in the Shares or enforcing its rights under this Agreement. The Purchaser shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce its rights, including without limitation the rights arising out of this Agreement, and it shall not be necessary for any Other Purchaser to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.
SECTION 10.    Notices. All notices, requests, consents and other communications hereunder shall be in writing, shall be mailed by first-class registered or certified airmail, e-mail, confirmed facsimile or nationally recognized overnight express courier postage prepaid, and shall be deemed given when so mailed and shall be delivered as addressed as follows:

Each of the Company and the Purchaser submits to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and of any

-33-




New York State court sitting in New York City for purposes of all legal proceedings arising out of or relating to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby. Each of the Company and the Purchaser irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any such proceeding brought in such a court and any claim that any such proceeding brought in such a court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.
SECTION 15.    Counterparts.

The term “successor and assigns” shall not include any subsequent purchaser, as such purchaser, of the Shares sold to the Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement.
SECTION 19.    Further Assurances. Each party agrees to cooperate fully with the other parties and to execute such further instruments, documents and agreements and to give such further written assurance as may be reasonably requested by any other party to evidence and reflect the transactions described herein and contemplated hereby and to carry into effect the intents and purposes of this Agreement.
SECTION 20.    Third-Party Beneficiary. The Company agrees that the Placement Agent shall be, and is hereby, named as an express third-party beneficiary of this Agreement solely with respect to the representations and warranties of the Company contained in Section 4 with full rights as such.

-34-




SECTION 21.    No Change of Control. The Company shall use reasonable best efforts to obtain all necessary irrevocable waivers, adopt any required amendments and make all appropriate determinations so that the issuance of the Shares to the Purchasers will not trigger a “change of control” or other similar provision in any of the agreements to which the Company or any of its subsidiaries is a party, including without limitation any employment, “change in control,” severance or other agreements and any benefit plan, which results in payments to the counterparty or the acceleration of vesting of benefits.
SECTION 22.    Avoidance of Control. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, neither the Company nor any subsidiary shall take any action (including, without limitation, any redemption, repurchase, rescission 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 Purchaser is not given the right to participate in such redemption, repurchase, rescission or recapitalization to the extent of the Purchaser’s pro rata proportion), that would cause the Purchaser’s ownership of any class of voting securities of the Company (together with the ownership by such Purchaser’s affiliates (as such term is used under the BHC Act) of voting securities of the Company) to exceed 9.9%, without the prior written consent of the Purchaser, or to increase to an amount that would constitute “control” under the BHC Act, the CIBC Act or any rules or regulations promulgated thereunder (or any successor provisions) or otherwise cause the Purchaser to “control” the Company under and for purposes of the BHC Act, the CIBC Act or any rules or regulations promulgated thereunder (or any successor provisions). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no Purchaser (together with its affiliates (as such term is used under the BHC Act)) shall have the ability to purchase more than 9.9% of the total outstanding voting securities of the Company. In the event either the Company or the Purchaser breaches its obligations under this Section 22 or believes that it is reasonably likely to breach such an obligation, it shall promptly notify the other party hereto and shall cooperate in good faith with such party to modify ownership or make other arrangements or take any other action, in each case, as is necessary to cure or avoid such breach.
SECTION 23.    Termination. This Agreement may be terminated and the sale and purchase of the Shares abandoned at any time prior to the Closing by either the Company or the Purchaser upon written notice to the other, if the Closing has not been consummated on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the fifteenth (15th) day following the date of this Agreement; provided that if such day is not a business day, the first day following such day that is a business day; provided, however, that the right to terminate this Agreement under this Section 23 shall not be available to any person whose failure to comply with its obligations under this Agreement has been the cause of or resulted in the failure of the Closing to occur on or before such time. Nothing in this Section 23 shall be deemed to release any party from any liability for any breach by such party of the terms and provisions of this Agreement or to impair the right of any party to compel specific performance

-35-




by any other party of its obligations under this Agreement. In the event of a termination pursuant to this Section, the Company shall promptly notify all non-terminating Purchasers. Upon a termination in accordance with this Section, the Company and the Purchaser shall not have any further obligation or liability (including arising from such termination) to the other.

SCHEDULE 4.12
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

The Company received a letter, dated August 16, 2013 (the “Letter”), from Middletown Valley Bank (“Middletown”) notifying the Company that Middletown is a small community bank operating under the trade name “MVB” in Western Frederick County and Eastern Washington County, Maryland. The Letter indicated that the Company’s operations and use and advertising of the “MVB” trade name in Berkeley and Jefferson Counties, West Virginia (which are adjacent to Washington County, Maryland) had caused some confusion among Middletown’s clients in the West Virginia counties. On September 26, 2013, Middletown filed an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) to register the word mark “MVB.” The USPTO issued such registration on May 26, 2014. The Company filed an application to register “MVB” on March 19, 2014, which application was denied by the USPTO due to Middletown’s registration. The Company and Middletown have since continued their respective operations under the “MVB” trade name.
