Exhibit 10.1

INVESTMENT AGREEMENT

THIS INVESTMENT AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”), dated as of March 13, 2017, is made by and among MVB Financial Corp. (the “Company”), and Larry F. Mazza, the Chief Executive Officer of the Company (the “Investor”).

WHEREAS, the Company proposes to conduct a rights offering (the “Rights Offering”) by distributing, at no charge, to each holder of record as of the Record Date (as defined below) of shares (“Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), one non-transferable right (the “Rights”), for each Share held by such shareholder, to purchase Shares which Rights, if exercised in full by each holder of record as of the Record Date, will provide gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $5.0 million (the “Aggregate Offering Amount”);
WHEREAS, each holder of a whole Right will be entitled to purchase up to its pro rata portion of the 434,783 Shares (the “Offered Shares”) offered in the Rights Offering (the “Basic Subscription Right”) at a price equal to $11.50 per Share (as appropriately adjusted for any stock split, combination, reorganization, recapitalization, stock dividend, stock distribution or similar event, the “Exercise Price”);
WHEREAS, each holder of Rights who exercises all of its Rights will be entitled, on a pro rata basis, to subscribe for additional Shares at the Exercise Price (the “Over-Subscription Right”), to the extent that other holders of Rights do not exercise all of their respective Basic Subscription Rights in full, up to that number of Shares equal to 434,783 minus the number of Shares such holder was entitled to purchase pursuant to the its Basic Subscription Right;
WHEREAS, in order to facilitate the Rights Offering, the Investor has agreed to subscribe for and purchase, at the Exercise Price, upon expiration of the Rights Offering, that number of Shares, if any, equal to the amount by which 100,000 exceeds the number of Shares purchased by the Investor pursuant to the exercise of his Basic Subscription Right and Over-Subscription Right upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein;
WHEREAS, the Board of Directors has approved the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby (including, without limitation, the issuance of the Shares to the Investor on the terms hereof).
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises, agreements, representations, warranties and covenants contained herein, each of the parties hereto hereby agrees as follows:

(a)    On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein, the Company will distribute, at no charge, one Right to each holder of record of Common Stock (each, an “Eligible Holder”) for each share of Common Stock held by such holder as of the close of business on a record date to be determined by the Board of Directors (the “Record Date”).  Each such Right shall be non-transferable.  Each whole Right will entitle the holder thereof to purchase, at the election of the holder thereof, 0.04349 of a Share at the Exercise Price.  Each fractional Right will be rounded down to the nearest whole number, and fractional Rights will not entitle any holder to purchase any Shares.  No fractional Shares will be issued in the Rights Offering.
(b)    The Basic Subscription Right and the Over-Subscription Right may be exercised during a period (the “Rights Exercise Period”) commencing on the date on which Rights are issued to Eligible Holders (the “Rights Offering Commencement Date”) and ending at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on a Business Day that shall not be less than fifteen (15) days after the Rights Offering Commencement Date. “Business Day” means each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday that is not a day on which banking institutions in New York City are generally authorized or obligated by law or executive order to close.
(c)    If the Investor is unable to acquire at least 100,000 Shares under in the Rights Offering having an aggregate purchase price of $1,150,000, the Company shall issue at the Closing additional Shares, if any, to the Investor

The parties acknowledge and agree that the number of additional Shares purchased by the Investor pursuant to this Section 1(c) shall have no effect on the number of Shares to be sold in the Rights Offering.
(d)    The closing of the purchase of the additional Shares, if any, to be purchased by the Investor hereunder (the “Closing”) will occur at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on the fourth (4th) Business Day following the expiration of the Rights Offering (the “Closing Date”).  Delivery to the Investor of the additional Shares, if any, acquired hereunder (the “Investor Shares”) will be made by the Company to account of the Investor.  The documents to be delivered on the Closing Date by or on behalf of the parties hereto and the Investor Shares will be delivered at the offices of Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP, Cincinnati, Ohio, on the Closing Date.
