Item 6. Indemnification of Officers and Directors.

Missouri Revised Statutes (RSMo) Section 351.355 (2015) provides as follows:

1. A corporation created under the laws of this state may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit, or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, other than an action by or in the right of the corporation, by reason of the fact that he or she is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses, including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with such action, suit, or proceeding if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful. The termination of any action, suit, or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, shall not, of itself, create a presumption that the person did not act in good faith and in a manner which he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had reasonable cause to believe that his or her conduct was unlawful.

2. The corporation may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that he or she is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against expenses, including attorneys’ fees, and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with the defense or settlement of the action or suit if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation; except that no indemnification shall be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been adjudged to be liable for negligence or misconduct in the performance of his or her duty to the corporation unless and only to the extent that the court in which the action or suit was brought determines upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability and in view of all the circumstances of the case, the person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses which the court shall deem proper.

3. Except as otherwise provided in the articles of incorporation or the bylaws, to the extent that a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any action, suit, or proceeding referred to in subsections 1 and 2 of this section, or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, he or she shall be indemnified against expenses, including attorneys’ fees, actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with the action, suit, or proceeding.

4. Any indemnification under subsections 1 and 2 of this section, unless ordered by a court, shall be made by the corporation only as authorized in the specific case upon a determination that indemnification of the director, officer, employee or agent is proper in the circumstances because he or she has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in this section. The determination shall be made by the board of directors by a majority vote of a quorum consisting of directors who were not parties to the action, suit, or proceeding, or if such a quorum is not obtainable, or even if obtainable a quorum of disinterested directors so directs, by independent legal counsel in a written opinion, or by the shareholders.

5. Expenses incurred in defending any civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative action, suit or proceeding may be paid by the corporation in advance of the final disposition of the action, suit, or proceeding as authorized by the board of directors in the specific case upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the director, officer, employee or agent to repay such amount unless it shall ultimately be determined that he or she is entitled to be indemnified by the corporation as authorized in this section.


6. The indemnification provided by this section shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those seeking indemnification may be entitled under the articles of incorporation or bylaws or any agreement, vote of shareholders or disinterested directors or otherwise, both as to action in his or her official capacity and as to action in another capacity while holding such office, and shall continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors and administrators of such a person.

7. A corporation created under the laws of this state shall have the power to give any further indemnity, in addition to the indemnity authorized or contemplated under other subsections of this section, including subsection 6, to any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent, or to any person who is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, provided such further indemnity is either (i) authorized, directed, or provided for in the articles of incorporation of the corporation or any duly adopted amendment thereof or (ii) is authorized, directed, or provided for in any bylaw or agreement of the corporation which has been adopted by a vote of the shareholders of the corporation, and provided further that no such indemnity shall indemnify any person from or on account of such person’s conduct which was finally adjudged to have been knowingly fraudulent, deliberately dishonest or willful misconduct. Nothing in this subsection shall be deemed to limit the power of the corporation under subsection 6 of this section to enact bylaws or to enter into agreements without shareholder adoption of the same.

8. The corporation may purchase and maintain insurance or another arrangement on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against any liability asserted against him or her and incurred by him or her in any such capacity, or arising out of his or her status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify him against such liability under the provisions of this section. Without limiting the power of the corporation to procure or maintain any kind of insurance or other arrangement the corporation may for the benefit of persons indemnified by the corporation create a trust fund, establish any form of self-insurance, secure its indemnity obligation by grant of a security interest or other lien on the assets of the corporation, or establish a letter of credit, guaranty, or surety arrangement. The insurance or other arrangement may be procured, maintained, or established within the corporation or with any insurer or other person deemed appropriate by the board of directors regardless of whether all or part of the stock or other securities of the insurer or other person are owned in whole or in part by the corporation. In the absence of fraud the judgment of the board of directors as to the terms and conditions of the insurance or other arrangement and the identity of the insurer or other person participating in an arrangement shall be conclusive and the insurance or arrangement shall not be voidable and shall not subject the directors approving the insurance or arrangement to liability on any ground regardless of whether directors participating in the approval are beneficiaries of the insurance arrangement.

9. Any provision of this chapter to the contrary notwithstanding, the provisions of this section shall apply to all existing and new domestic corporations, including but not limited to banks, trust companies, insurance companies, building and loan associations, savings bank and safe deposit companies, mortgage loan companies, corporations formed for benevolent, religious, scientific or educational purposes and nonprofit corporations.

10. For the purpose of this section, references to “the corporation” include all constituent corporations absorbed in a consolidation or merger as well as the resulting or surviving corporation so that any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of such a constituent corporation or is or was serving at the request of such constituent corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise shall stand in the same position under the provisions of this section with respect to the resulting or surviving corporation as he or she would if he or she had served the resulting or surviving corporation in the same capacity.

11. For purposes of this section, the term “other enterprise” shall include employee benefit plans; the term “fines” shall include any excise taxes assessed on a person with respect to an employee benefit plan; and the term “serving at the request of the corporation” shall include any service as a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation which imposes duties on, or involves services by, such director, officer, employee, or agent with respect to an employee benefit plan, its participants, or beneficiaries; and a person who acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries of an employee benefit plan shall be deemed to have acted in a manner “not opposed to the best interests of the corporation” as referred to in this section.


Article IX, Section 4 of the Bylaws of UMB Financial Corporation provides as follows:

Section 4. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

a. Any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative (other than an action, suit, or proceeding by or in the right of the Company) by reason of the fact that he or she is or was a director or officer of the Company or any of its subsidiaries (a subsidiary being defined as another corporation or other entity included in a controlled group of corporations or other entities of which the Company is a common parent), or is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director or officer of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, or other enterprise (which shall be deemed to include service in a fiduciary capacity or otherwise with respect to any employee benefit plan of the Company or any other corporation or other entity) shall, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement (which shall include any excise taxes assessed against a person with respect to an employee benefit plan) actually and reasonably incurred by him or her in connection with such action, suit or proceeding, if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Company or the participants or beneficiaries of any employee benefit plan, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful. Any employee of the Company or its subsidiaries, when acting in a supervisory or managerial capacity, may likewise be indemnified, but such indemnification is not mandatory. The termination of any action, suit, or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, shall not, of itself, create a presumption that the person did not act in good faith and in a manner which he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Company, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had reasonable cause to believe that his or her conduct was unlawful.

b. Any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending, or completed action, suit or proceeding by or in the right of the Company to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that he or she is or was a director or officer of the Company, or is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director or officer of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise shall, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him or her in connection with the defense or settlement of the action, suit or proceeding if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Company. Any employee of the Company or its subsidiaries, when acting in a supervisory or managerial capacity, may likewise be indemnified, but such indemnification is not mandatory. However, no indemnification shall be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which any person shall have been adjudged to be liable for negligence or misconduct in the performance of his or her duty to the Company unless and only to the extent that a court determines that, despite the adjudication of liability and in view of all the circumstances of the case, the person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses which the court shall deem proper.

c. Except as may otherwise be provided in the Restated Articles of Incorporation or the Bylaws, any person who has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to in subsections (a) or (b) above, or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, shall be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by him or her in connection therewith.

d. Except as provided in subsection (e), indemnification of anyone under subsections (a) or (b), unless ordered by a court, shall be made by the Company only as authorized in each case upon a determination that it is proper because the director, officer or employee has met the applicable standard of conduct. Such a determination may be made by the board of directors by a majority vote of a quorum consisting of directors who were not parties to the action, suit or proceeding, or if such a quorum is not obtainable, or even if obtainable, a quorum of disinterested directors (by independent legal counsel in a written opinion) or by the shareholders.


e. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, unless required by applicable law, no director, officer, or employee shall be indemnified against any expenses, penalties or other payments incurred:

i. in an administrative action, suit or proceeding instituted by a bank regulatory agency to the extent that such indemnification would constitute a “prohibited indemnification payment” (as such term is defined under applicable provisions of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and regulations thereunder), except under circumstances specifically permitted by such Act and regulations, or otherwise would constitute an indemnification payment that is prohibited by applicable law, or

ii. unless he or she notifies the Company in writing of the threatened, pending or completed action, suit, or proceeding promptly on becoming aware thereof and, before incurring expense of any kind therein or in connection therewith, gives the Company or its insurer the opportunity to provide an independent attorney to represent him or her in, and to otherwise counsel him or her in connection with, any such action, suit, or proceeding, or

iii. in connection with any settlement of a claim asserted or action, suit, or proceeding brought or threatened against him or her unless the board of directors (A) approved the amount of such settlement as (I) reasonable and (II) not affecting the Company’s safety and soundness or (B) could not, by reason of the action, intervention or threat of a court, government agency or instrumentality, act with complete independence and free of circumscription in relation to the subject matter, or

iv. in connection with any claim made against him or her for an accounting of profits made from the purchase or sale by him or her of securities of the Company within the meaning of Section 16b of the Exchange Act or similar provisions of any applicable law, or

v. in connection with any action, suit, or proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by such person claiming indemnification unless such action, suit, or proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by such person was authorized by the board of directors.

f. The right to indemnification of officers and directors shall include the right, to the extent permissible under applicable law, to be paid by the Company reasonable expenses, including attorneys’ fees (but not including any retainers or prepayments of fees, unless such retainers or prepayments are approved by the Board), incurred in defending any such action, suit or proceeding, in advance of its final disposition; provided, however, that the payment of such expenses in advance of the final disposition of such proceeding shall be made only:

i. upon delivery to the Company of a written agreement, by or on behalf of such director or officer, in which such director or officer agrees to repay all amounts so advanced if it should be ultimately determined by a court or other tribunal or by the board of directors, that (A) such person is not entitled to be indemnified under this Section or otherwise or (B) such director or officer is assessed a civil money penalty imposed by a bank regulatory agency, is removed or prohibited from banking or is required under a final order to cease an action or take an affirmative action by a bank regulatory agency, and

ii. until such time as the board of directors has made a final determination regarding indemnification under subsection (d). If the board of director’s final determination is that indemnification is not proper, further advancement of expenses, including attorneys’ fees, will immediately cease. If the board of director’s final determination is that indemnification is proper, indemnification of expenses, including attorneys’ fees, will continue.

g. If the claim of an officer or director for indemnification under the Bylaws is not paid in full by the Company within thirty (30) days after a written claim therefor has been received by the Company, the claimant may any time thereafter bring suit against the Company to recover the unpaid amount of the claim and, if successful in whole or in part, the claimant shall be entitled to be paid also the expense of prosecuting such claim. Neither the failure of the Company (including the board of directors, independent legal counsel, or shareholders) to have made a determination prior to the commencement of such action that the claimant is entitled to indemnification or advancement under the circumstances, nor an actual determination by the Company (including the board of directors, independent legal counsel, or shareholders) that the claimant is not entitled to indemnification or advancement, shall be a defense to the action or create a presumption that the claimant is not entitled to indemnification or advancement.


h. The Company may purchase and maintain insurance or another arrangement on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, or employee of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer or employee of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against any liability asserted against him or her and incurred by him or her in any such capacity, or arising out of his or her status as such, whether or not the Company would have the power to indemnify him or her against such liability under the Bylaws or applicable law; provided, however, that such insurance or other arrangement shall not provide coverage inconsistent with that permitted by applicable law.

i. The indemnification provided for directors, officers or employees of the Company shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those officers, directors, or employees may be entitled under the Restated Articles of Incorporation, the Bylaws or any agreement, vote of shareholders or disinterested directors, or otherwise, both as to actions in his or her official capacity and as to actions in another capacity while holding such office, and shall continue as to any person who has ceased to be a director, officer, or employee of the Company and shall inure to the benefit of his or her heirs, executors, and administrators.

j. The right of any officer or director to be indemnified, reimbursed, or advanced amounts pursuant hereto:

i. is a contract right based upon good and valuable consideration, pursuant to which the person entitled thereto may bring suit as if the provisions hereof were set forth in a separate written contract between the Company and the director or officer,

ii. is intended to be retroactive and shall be available with respect to events occurring prior to the adoption hereof, and,

iii. shall continue to exist after the rescission or restrictive modification hereof with respect to events occurring prior thereto.

The Company maintains insurance policies that indemnify its directors and officers against various liabilities arising under the Exchange Act and the Securities Act that might be incurred by any director or officer in his or her capacity as such.

Item 9. Undertakings.

The undersigned Company hereby undertakes:

(1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

(i) to include any prospectus required by section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;

(ii) to reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if total dollar value securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and

(iii) to include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;

provided, however, that paragraphs (1)(i) and (1)(ii) do not apply if the registration statement is on Form S-8 and information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the Company pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference herein.

(2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

The Company hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the Company’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Company pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Company has been advised that in the opinion of the Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Company of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Company in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Company will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.


SIGNATURES

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the Company certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused this registration statement to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of Kansas City, State of Missouri, on May 1, 2018.

  Re: UMB Financial Corporation Registration Statement on Form S-8 for the UMB Financial Corporation Omnibus Incentive Compensation Plan

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We have acted as counsel to UMB Financial Corporation, a Missouri corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the issuance of an opinion under the Registration Statement on Form S-8 (the “Registration Statement”) to be filed by the Company on or about the date hereof with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), and regulations promulgated thereunder.

The Registration Statement relates to, among other things, the registration under the Act of 5,397,215 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $1.00 per share, which Shares may be issued and sold from time to time pursuant to the UMB Financial Corporation Omnibus Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Plan”).

As the basis for the opinion expressed herein, we have examined originals or copies, certified or otherwise identified to our satisfaction, of (i) the Registration Statement, (ii) the Restated Articles of Incorporation of the Company, as amended to date, (iii) the Bylaws of the Company, as amended to date, (iv) the Plan, (v) resolutions and the record of actions taken by the Company’s board of directors and committees thereof and by the Company’s stockholders, in each case, with respect to, among other things, the Plan, the Shares and the authorization of the preparation and filing of the Registration Statement, and (vi) such other instruments, documents and corporate records as we have deemed necessary or appropriate for purposes of the opinion expressed herein. In addition, we have reviewed certain certificates of public officials and of officers of the Company and we have relied on such certificates with respect to certain factual matters that we have not independently established. As to any facts material to the opinion expressed herein which we have not independently established or verified, we have relied upon the statements and representations of officers and other representatives of the Company and others.

For purposes of the opinion expressed herein, we have assumed (i) the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals, (ii) the conformity to original documents of all documents submitted to us as certified or photostatic copies and the authenticity of the originals of all documents submitted to us as copies, (iii) the genuineness of the signatures of persons signing all documents in connection with which the opinion herein is rendered, the authority of such persons signing on behalf of the parties thereto other than the Company and the due authorization, execution and delivery of all documents by the parties thereto other than the Company, and (iv) the consideration to be received by the Company in exchange for each Share to be issued pursuant to the Plan constitutes adequate consideration therefor.


We express no opinion herein as to matters involving the laws of any jurisdiction other than the present federal laws of the United States of America, The General and Business Corporation Law of Missouri, and the present judicial interpretations thereof. We advise you that the issues addressed by this letter may be governed in whole or in part by other laws, and we express no opinion as to whether any relevant difference exists between the laws upon which our opinion herein is based and any other laws that may actually govern.

Based on the foregoing and subject to the limitations and assumptions set forth herein, we are of the opinion that the Shares to be issued by the Company pursuant to the Plan, when issued in accordance with the terms of the Plan, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.

The opinion expressed herein is limited to the specific issues addressed therein, and we express no opinion, whether by implication or otherwise, as to any matters beyond that expressly stated herein. The opinion expressed herein shall not be construed as or deemed to be a guaranty or insuring agreement. The opinion expressed herein is rendered as of the date first written above and we have no continuing obligation hereunder to inform you of changes of law, including judicial interpretations of law, or of facts, circumstances, events or developments of which we become aware after the date hereof and which may alter, affect or modify the opinion expressed herein.

We hereby consent to the filing of this letter as Exhibit 5.1 to the Registration Statement. In giving this consent, we do not thereby admit that we are within the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Act, or the rules of the Commission promulgated thereunder.

 

Very truly yours,
