Ladies and Gentlemen:
Certain stockholders named in ‎Schedule 2 hereto (the “Selling Shareholders”) of TriState Capital Holdings, Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation (the “Company”), propose to sell to the several underwriters listed in ‎Schedule 1 hereto (the “Underwriters”), for whom you are acting as representative (the “Representative”), an aggregate of 2,200,000 shares of common stock, no par value, of the Company (the “Shares”). The shares of common stock of the Company to be outstanding after giving effect to the sale of the Shares are referred to herein as the “Stock.” To the extent there are no additional underwriters listed on Schedule 1, all references to the “Representative” and the “Underwriters” as used herein shall refer only to Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc. and the term “Underwriters” shall mean either the singular or the plural as the context requires.
The Company and the Selling Shareholders hereby confirm their agreement with the several Underwriters concerning the purchase and sale of the Shares, as follows:

The Company has prepared and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder (collectively, the “Securities Act”), a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-222074), including the base prospectus, relating to the Shares. Such registration statement, as amended at the time it became effective and including any post-effective amendment thereto, including the information, if any, deemed




pursuant to Rule 430A, 430B or 430C under the Securities Act to be part of the registration statement at the time of its effectiveness (“Rule 430 Information”), and including the exhibits and schedules thereto, if any, is referred to herein as the “Registration Statement”; provided, that the “Registration Statement” without reference to a time means such registration statement as amended by any post-effective amendments thereto as of the time of the first contract of sale for the Shares, including the exhibits and schedules thereto as of such time, the documents incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference therein at such time pursuant to Item 12 of Form S-3 under the Securities Act and the documents otherwise deemed to be a part thereof as of such time pursuant to Rule 430B. As used herein, the term “Preliminary Prospectus” means each prospectus included in such registration statement (and any amendments thereto) before effectiveness, any prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(a) under the Securities Act and the prospectus included in the Registration Statement at the time of its effectiveness that omits Rule 430 Information; and the term “Prospectus” means the prospectus in the form first used (or made available upon request of purchasers pursuant to Rule 173 under the Securities Act) in connection with confirmation of sales of the Shares. If the Company has filed an abbreviated registration statement pursuant to Rule 462(b) under the Securities Act (the “Rule 462 Registration Statement”), then any reference herein to the term “Registration Statement” shall be deemed to include such Rule 462 Registration Statement. Any reference in this underwriting agreement (this “Agreement”) to the Registration Statement, any Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus shall be deemed to refer to and include the documents incorporated by reference therein pursuant to Item 12 of Form S-3 under the Securities Act, as of the effective date of the Registration Statement or the date of such Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus, as the case may be. Any reference to “amend,” “amendment” or “supplement” with respect to the Registration Statement, any Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus shall be deemed to refer to and include any documents filed after such date under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder (collectively, the “Exchange Act”) that are deemed to be incorporated by reference therein; and any references in this Agreement to financial statements and schedules and other information which is “contained,” “included” or “stated” (or other references of like import) in the Registration Statement, any Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus shall be deemed to include all such financial statements and schedules and other information incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, any Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus, as the case may be, prior to the Applicable Time (as defined below). Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings given to such terms in the Registration Statement and the Prospectus.

2.    Purchase of the Shares. (a) Each of the Selling Shareholders agrees, severally and not jointly, to sell the Shares to the several Underwriters as provided in this Agreement and each Underwriter, on the basis of the representations, warranties and agreements set forth herein and subject to the conditions set forth herein, agrees, severally and not jointly to purchase from each of the Selling Shareholders at a purchase price per share of $25.71 (the “Purchase Price”) the number of Shares (to be adjusted by you so as to eliminate fractional shares) determined by multiplying the aggregate number of Shares to be sold by each of the Selling Shareholders as set forth opposite their respective names in ‎Schedule 2 hereto by a fraction, the numerator of which is the aggregate number of Shares to be purchased by such Underwriter as set forth opposite the name of such Underwriter in ‎Schedule 1 hereto and the denominator of which is the aggregate number of Shares to be purchased by all the Underwriters from all of the Selling Shareholders hereunder.
(a)    The Selling Shareholders understand that the Underwriters intend to make a public offering of the Shares as soon after the effectiveness of this Agreement as in the judgment of the Representative is advisable, and initially to offer the Shares on the terms set forth in the Pricing Disclosure Package. The Selling Shareholders acknowledge and agree that the Underwriters may offer and sell Shares to or through any affiliate of an Underwriter.
(b)    Payment for the Shares shall be made by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account specified by the Selling Shareholders to the Representative at the offices of Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, 450 Lexington Avenue, New York, New York 10017 at 9:30 a.m., New York City time, on May 25, 2018, or at such other time or place on the same or such other date, not later than the fifth business day thereafter, as the Representative and the Selling Shareholders may agree upon in writing.

(“FINRA”).
(s)    Absence of Proceedings. There is no action, suit, proceeding, inquiry or investigation before or brought by any Governmental Entity, now pending, or, to the knowledge of the Company, threatened, against or affecting the Company or any Subsidiary, which is required to be disclosed in the Registration Statement (other than as disclosed therein), or which would result in a Material Adverse Effect, or which would result in materially and adversely affecting the properties or assets thereof; the aggregate of all pending legal or governmental proceedings to which the Company or any Subsidiary is a party or of which any of their respective property or assets is the subject which are not described in the Registration Statement,

-9-



including ordinary routine litigation incidental to the business, would not result in a Material Adverse Effect.

If during the Prospectus Delivery Period, any event or development shall occur or condition shall exist as a result of which it is necessary, in the opinion of counsel for the Underwriters or for the Company, to amend the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Prospectus (i) in order that the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Prospectus, as the case may be, will not include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the

-21-



circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, or (ii) in order to comply with the requirements of the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, the Company will promptly notify the Representative thereof and forthwith prepare and, subject to Section 5(c) above, file with the Commission and furnish to the Representative such amendments or supplements to the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Prospectus, as the case may be (or any document to be filed with the Commission and incorporated by reference therein), as may be necessary to correct such statement omission or to make the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Prospectus, as the case may be, comply with such requirements.

The Prospectus and any amendments or supplements thereto furnished to the Underwriters will be identical to the electronically transmitted copies thereof filed with the Commission pursuant to EDGAR, except to the extent permitted by Regulation S-T
(g)    Blue Sky Qualification. The Company will use its best efforts, in cooperation with the Underwriters, to qualify the Shares for offering and sale under the applicable securities laws of such states and non-U.S. jurisdictions as the Representative may designate and to maintain such qualifications in effect so long as required for distribution of the Shares; provided, that the Company shall not be obligated to file any general consent to service of process or to qualify as a foreign corporation or as a dealer in securities in any jurisdiction in which it is not so qualified or to subject itself to taxation in respect of doing business in any jurisdiction in which it is not otherwise so subject.

During a period of 45 days from the date of this Agreement, the Company will not, without the prior written consent of the Representative, (i) directly or indirectly offer, pledge, sell, contract to sell, sell any option or contract to purchase, purchase any option or contract to sell, grant any option, right or warrant for the sale of, or lend or otherwise transfer or dispose of, the Shares or any securities that are substantially similar to the Shares, whether owned as of the date hereof or hereafter acquired or with respect to which such person has or hereafter acquires the power of disposition, or file, or cause to be filed, any registration statement under the Securities Act with respect to any of the foregoing or (i) enter into any swap or any other agreement or any transaction that transfers, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, the economic consequence of ownership of the Shares or such other securities, whether any such swap or transaction described in clause ‎(i) or ‎(ii) above is to be settled by delivery of any Shares or such other securities, in cash or otherwise. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company may issue shares or options to purchase shares, or issue shares upon exercise of options or warrants, pursuant to any stock option, stock bonus or other stock plan, arrangement or agreement described in the Registration Statement, the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Prospectus.

The Company represents that it has treated or agrees that it will treat each such free writing prospectus consented to, or deemed consented to, by the Representative as an Issuer Free Writing Prospectus and that it has complied and will comply with the applicable requirements of Rule 433 with respect thereto, including timely filing with the Commission where required, legending and record keeping. If at any time following issuance of an Issuer Free Writing Prospectus during the Prospectus Delivery Period there occurred or occurs an event or condition as a result of which such Issuer Free Writing Prospectus included or would include an untrue statement of a material fact or omitted or would omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances existing at that subsequent time, not misleading, the Company will promptly

-23-



notify the Representative in writing and will promptly amend or supplement, at its own expense, such Issuer Free Writing Prospectus to correct such untrue statement or omission.

(d)    Use of Proceeds. It will not directly or indirectly use the proceeds of the offering of the Shares hereunder, or lend, contribute or otherwise make available such proceeds to a subsidiary, joint venture partner or other person or entity (i) to fund or facilitate any activities of or business with any person that, at the time of such funding or facilitation, is the subject of target of Sanctions, (i) to fund or facilitate any activities of or business in any Sanctioned Country or (i) in any other manner that will result in a violation by any person (including any person participating in the transaction, whether as underwriter, advisor, investor or otherwise) of Sanctions.
7.    Certain Agreements of the Underwriters. Each Underwriter hereby represents and agrees that:
(a)    It has not and will not use, authorize use of, refer to, or participate in the planning for use of, any “free writing prospectus,” as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act (which term includes use of any written information furnished to the Commission by the Company and not incorporated by reference into the Registration Statement and any press release issued by the Company) other than (i) a free writing prospectus that contains no “issuer information” (as defined in Rule 433(h)(2) under the Securities Act) that was not included (including through incorporation by reference) in the Preliminary Prospectus or a previously filed Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, (ii) any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus listed on Annex A or prepared pursuant to Section 3(c) or Section 4(f) above, or (iii) any free writing prospectus prepared by

-27-



supplement thereto), any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, any “issuer information” filed or required to be filed pursuant to Rule 433(d) under the Securities Act, any road show as defined in Rule 433(h) under the Securities Act (a “road show”) or any Pricing Disclosure Package (including any Pricing Disclosure Package that has subsequently been amended), or caused by any omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, in each case except insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities arise out of, or are based upon, any untrue statement or omission or alleged untrue statement or omission made in reliance upon and in conformity with any information relating to any Underwriter furnished to the Company in writing by such Underwriter through the Representative expressly for use therein, it being understood and agreed that the only such information furnished by any Underwriter consists of the information described as such in subsection (c) below.
(b)    Indemnification of the Underwriters by the Selling Shareholders. Each of the Selling Shareholders severally and not jointly in proportion to the number of Shares to be sold by such Selling Shareholder hereunder agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each Underwriter, its affiliates, directors and officers and each person, if any, who controls such Underwriter within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act to the same extent as the indemnity set forth in paragraph (a) above, provided that each Selling Shareholder shall be liable only to the extent that such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission has been made in reliance upon and in conformity with information relating to such Selling Shareholder furnished in writing by or on behalf of such Selling Shareholder expressly for use in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto), any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus or the Pricing Disclosure Package, it being understood and agreed that the only such information consists of only of the name of such Selling Shareholder, the number of Shares to be sold by such Selling Shareholder and the address and other information with respect to such Selling Shareholder (excluding percentages) which appear in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus and the Pricing Disclosure Package in the table (and corresponding footnotes) under the caption “Selling Shareholders.”
(c)    Indemnification of the Company and the Selling Shareholders. Each Underwriter agrees, severally and not jointly, to indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its directors, 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 and each of the Selling Shareholders to the same extent as the indemnity set forth in paragraph (a) above, but only with respect to any losses, claims, damages or liabilities that arise out of, or are based upon, any untrue statement or omission or alleged untrue statement or omission made in reliance upon and in conformity with any information relating to such Underwriter furnished to the Company in writing by such Underwriter through the Representative expressly for use in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto), any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, any road show or any Pricing Disclosure Package (including any Pricing Disclosure Package that has subsequently been amended), it being understood and agreed upon that the only such information furnished by any Underwriter consists of the following information in the Prospectus furnished on behalf of

-28-



each Underwriter: the information contained in the eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth paragraphs under the caption “Underwriting.”
(d)    Notice and Procedures. If any suit, action, proceeding (including any governmental or regulatory investigation), claim or demand shall be brought or asserted against any person in respect of which indemnification may be sought pursuant to the preceding paragraphs of this Section ‎‎9, such person (the “Indemnified Person”) shall promptly notify the person against whom such indemnification may be sought (the “Indemnifying Person”) in writing; provided that the failure to notify the Indemnifying Person shall not relieve it from any liability that it may have under the preceding paragraphs of this Section‎9 except to the extent that it has been materially prejudiced ( through the forfeiture of substantive rights or defenses) by such failure; and provided, further, that the failure to notify the Indemnifying Person shall not relieve it from any liability that it may have to an Indemnified Person otherwise than under the preceding paragraphs of this Section ‎‎9. If any such proceeding shall be brought or asserted against an Indemnified Person and it shall have notified the Indemnifying Person thereof, the Indemnifying Person shall retain counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Person (who shall not, without the consent of the Indemnified Person, be counsel to the Indemnifying Person) to represent the Indemnified Person and any others entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Section that the Indemnifying Person may designate in such proceeding and shall pay the fees and expenses in such proceeding and shall pay the fees and expenses of such counsel related to such proceeding, as incurred. In any such proceeding, any Indemnified Person shall have the right to retain its own counsel, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Indemnified Person unless (i) the Indemnifying Person and the Indemnified Person shall have mutually agreed to the contrary; (ii) the Indemnifying Person has failed within a reasonable time to retain counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Person; (iii) the Indemnified Person shall have reasonably concluded that there may be legal defenses available to it that are different from or in addition to those available to the Indemnifying Person; or (iv) the named parties in any such proceeding (including any impleaded parties) include both the Indemnifying Person and the Indemnified Person and representation of both parties by the same counsel would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between them. It is understood and agreed that the Indemnifying Person shall not, in connection with any proceeding or related proceeding in the same jurisdiction, be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one separate firm (in addition to any local counsel) for all Indemnified Persons, and that all such fees and expenses shall be paid or reimbursed as they are incurred. Any such separate firm for any Underwriter, its affiliates, directors and officers and any control persons of such Underwriter shall be designated in writing by Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc. and any such separate firm for the Company, its directors, its officers who signed the Registration Statement and any control persons of the Company shall be designated in writing by the Company and any such separate firm for the Selling Shareholders shall be designated in writing by the Selling Shareholders. The Indemnifying Person shall not be liable for any settlement of any proceeding effected without its written consent, but if settled with such consent or if there be a final judgment for the plaintiff, the Indemnifying Person agrees to indemnify each Indemnified Person from and against any loss or liability by reason of such settlement or judgment. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, if at any time an Indemnified Person shall have requested that an Indemnifying Person reimburse the Indemnified Person for fees and expenses of counsel as contemplated by this paragraph, such

-29-



Indemnifying Person agrees that it shall be liable for any settlement of any proceeding effected without its written consent if ‎(i) such settlement is entered into more than 60 days after receipt by such Indemnifying Person of the aforesaid request, (ii) such Indemnifying Person shall have received notice of the terms of such settlement at least 45 days prior to such settlement being entered into and (iii) such Indemnifying Person shall not have reimbursed such Indemnified Person in accordance with such request prior to the date of such settlement. No Indemnifying Person shall, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Person, effect any settlement of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which any Indemnified Person is or could have been a party and indemnification could have been sought hereunder by such Indemnified Person, unless such settlement (x) includes an unconditional release of such Indemnified Person, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified Person, from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such proceeding and (y) does not include any statement as to or any admission of fault, culpability or a failure to act by or on behalf of any Indemnified Person.
(e)    Contribution. If the indemnification provided for in paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) above is unavailable to an Indemnified Person or insufficient in respect of any losses, claims, damages or liabilities referred to therein, then each Indemnifying Person under such paragraph, in lieu of indemnifying such Indemnified Person thereunder, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Person as a result of such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (i) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Company and the Selling Shareholders, on the one hand, and the Underwriters on the other, from the offering of the Shares or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause (i) is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to in clause (i) but also the relative fault of the Company and the Selling Shareholders, on the one hand, and the Underwriters on the other, in connection with the statements or omissions that resulted in such losses, claims, damages or liabilities, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative benefits received by the Company and the Selling Shareholders, on the one hand, and the Underwriters on the other, shall be deemed to be in the same respective proportions as the net proceeds (before deducting expenses) received by the Selling Shareholders from the sale of the Shares and the total underwriting discounts and commissions received by the Underwriters in connection therewith, in each case as set forth in the table on the cover of the Prospectus, bear to the aggregate offering price of the Shares. The relative fault of the Company and the Selling Shareholders, on the one hand, and the Underwriters on the other, shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the Company and the Selling Shareholders or by the Underwriters and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission.
(f)    Limitation on Liability. The Company, the Selling Shareholders and the Underwriters agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to paragraph ‎(d) were determined by pro rata allocation (even if the Selling Shareholders or the Underwriters were treated as one entity for such purpose) or by any other method of allocation that does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in paragraph (e) above. The amount paid

-30-



or payable by an Indemnified Person as a result of the losses, claims, damages and liabilities referred to in paragraph (e) above shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth above, any legal or other expenses incurred by such Indemnified Person in connection with any such action or claim. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraphs ‎(d) and ‎(e), in no event shall an Underwriter be required to contribute any amount in excess of the amount by which the total underwriting discounts and commissions received by such Underwriter with respect to the offering of the Shares exceeds the amount of any damages that such Underwriter 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 Underwriters’ obligations to contribute pursuant to paragraphs ‎(d) and ‎(e) are several in proportion to their respective purchase obligations hereunder and not joint.
(g)    Non-Exclusive Remedies. The remedies provided for in this Section ‎9 paragraphs (a) through ‎(e) are not exclusive and shall not limit any rights or remedies which may otherwise be available to any Indemnified Person at law or in equity.
(h)    Other Agreements. The provisions of this Section 9 shall not affect any agreement among the Company and the Selling Shareholders with respect to indemnification or contribution.
10.    Termination. This Agreement may be terminated in the absolute discretion of the Representative, by notice to the Company and the Selling Shareholders, if after the execution and delivery of this Agreement and prior to the Closing Date (i) trading generally shall have been suspended or materially limited on or by any of the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq Stock Market; (i) trading of any securities of the Company shall have been suspended by the Commission or The Nasdaq Global Select Market; (i) a general moratorium on commercial banking activities shall have been declared by federal or New York State authorities; or (i) there shall have occurred any outbreak or escalation of hostilities or any change in financial markets or any calamity or crisis, either within or outside the United States, that, in the judgment of the Representative, is material and adverse and makes it impracticable or inadvisable to proceed with the offering, sale or delivery of the Shares on the Closing Date on the terms and in the manner contemplated by this Agreement, the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Prospectus.
11.    [Reserved]
12.    Payment of Expenses.
(a)    Whether or not the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are consummated or this Agreement is terminated, the Company will pay or cause to be paid all costs and expenses incident to the performance of its obligations hereunder, including without limitation, (i) the costs incident to the authorization, issuance, sale, preparation and delivery of the Shares and any taxes payable in that connection; (i) the costs incident to the preparation, printing and filing under the Securities Act of the Registration Statement, the Preliminary Prospectus, any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Prospectus (including all

-31-

Form of Opinion and 10b-5 Statement of Karla Villatoro de Friedman


May [●], 2018

[●]
as Representative of the several Underwriters

c/o [●]
[●]

Ladies and Gentlemen:
I have acted as counsel to TriState Capital Holdings, Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the sale by LM III TriState Holdings LLC and LM III-A TriState Holdings LLC (the “Selling Shareholders”) on the date hereof of [●] shares (the “Shares”) of common stock, no par value, of the Company (the “Common Stock”) pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, dated May [●], 2018 (the “Underwriting Agreement”), by and among the Company, the Selling Shareholders and [●], individually and acting as representative of each of the other underwriters named in Schedule A thereto (collectively, the “Underwriters”). This letter is delivered to you pursuant to Section 8(g)(i) of the Underwriting Agreement.
Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms used herein have the meanings provided in the Underwriting Agreement.
I have reviewed:
(i)    the Underwriting Agreement;
(ii)    the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-222074) with respect to the Shares (the “Registration Statement”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on December 15, 2017 (the “Registration Statement”), registering, inter alia, the Shares for sale under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”);
(iii)    the preliminary prospectus, consisting of the prospectus, dated December 21, 2017 (the “Base Prospectus”), as supplemented by a preliminary prospectus supplement with respect to the offer and sale of the Shares, which was filed with the Commission on May [●], 2018 pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act (the “Preliminary Prospectus”); and
(iv)    the final Prospectus, consisting of the Base Prospectus, as supplemented by a final prospectus supplement with respect to the offer and sale of the Shares, which was filed with the Commission on May [●], 2018 pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act (the “Prospectus”).

Annex B-1
    




I have also have reviewed such corporate records, certificates and other documents, and such questions of law, as I have deemed necessary or appropriate for the purposes of this opinion. As legal counsel for the Company in connection with the sale of the Shares by the Selling Shareholders, I have also participated in conferences with the Company (acting through its duly authorized officers, including its chief executive and chief financial and accounting officers).
I have assumed that all signatures are genuine, that all documents submitted to me as originals are authentic and that all copies of documents submitted to me conform to the originals. I have relied as to certain matters on information obtained from public officials, officers of the Company and other sources believed by me to be responsible. I have assumed that (a) each of the parties to the Underwriting Agreement (other than the Company) is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of all jurisdictions where it is conducting its businesses or otherwise required to be so qualified, and has full power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its duties under the Underwriting Agreement, (b) the Underwriting Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by, and constitutes a legal, valid and binding agreement of, each such party (other than the Company), (c) no further consent, approval, authorization, declaration or filing by or with any governmental authority is required for the valid execution and delivery of the Underwriting Agreement by any party other than the Company, and (d) each party other than the Company has acted and will act in good faith and will seek to enforce its rights and remedies under the Underwriting Agreement in a commercially reasonable manner.
With respect to my opinion set forth in paragraphs 1 and 2 below regarding the incorporation and good standing of the Company and the chartering and good standing of TriState Capital Bank, a Pennsylvania state banking corporation and wholly owned consolidated subsidiary of the Company (the “Bank”), I have relied with your permission on the good standing certificates of each such entity delivered to you and have assumed without further investigation that such good standing certificates remain in effect as of the date hereof.
The expressions “to my knowledge” and “known to me” mean my actual knowledge, but not my constructive or imputed knowledge, without any representation or implication that any inquiry has been made with respect to such statement.
Based upon the foregoing, and subject to the qualifications and assumptions set forth herein, I am of the opinion that, insofar as the law of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the federal law of the United States of America are concerned:
1.The Company and each of its Significant Subsidiaries have been duly organized and are validly existing and in good standing under the laws of their respective jurisdictions of organization. The Company and each of its Significant Subsidiaries are duly qualified to do business and are in good standing in each jurisdiction in which their respective ownership or lease of property or the conduct of their respective businesses requires such qualification, and have all power and authority necessary to own or hold their respective properties and to conduct the businesses in which they are engaged, except where the failure to be so qualified, in good standing or have such power or authority would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

Annex B-2
    




2.The Company is duly registered as a bank holding company under the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956, as amended. The Bank is validly existing as a Pennsylvania chartered bank under the laws of the Commonwealth.
3.All of the outstanding shares of capital stock or other equity interests of the Company, including the Shares, have been duly and validly authorized and issued, are fully paid and non-assessable.
4.All of the issued shares of capital stock of each subsidiary of the Company have been duly and validly authorized and issued, are fully paid and non-assessable and are owned directly or indirectly by the Company, free and clear of all liens, encumbrances, equities or claims, except for any such lien, encumbrance, equity or claim that would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a Material Adverse Effect.
5.The statements in the Prospectus under the caption “Description of Common Stock” and the description of the Company’s 6.75% Fixed-to-Floating Rate Series A Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, no par value, contained in the Company’s Form 8-A filed on March 20, 2018, insofar as such statements constitute summaries of the laws, regulations, legal matters, agreements or other legal documents referred to therein, are accurate in all material respects and fairly summarize the matters referred to therein.
6.The Company has corporate power and authority to enter into and perform its obligations under the Underwriting Agreement, and the Underwriting Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Company. The execution, delivery and performance by the Company of the Underwriting Agreement will not result in the violation of the Pennsylvania Business Corporation Law. The execution and delivery of the Underwriting Agreement by the Company do not breach the provisions of the Company’s Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws or the organizational documents of any of the Company’s Subsidiaries, and do not breach or conflict with the provisions of, or cause a default under, any agreement or instrument listed on Schedule A attached hereto other than any such violation, breach or default that would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.
7.No consent, approval, authorization, order, registration or qualification of or with any court or governmental agency or body is required under Pennsylvania Business Corporation Law for the execution, delivery and performance by the Company of the Underwriting Agreement, except as have been made or obtained and except for such consents, approvals, authorizations, orders and registrations or qualifications as may be required under applicable state securities laws in connection with the purchase and distribution of the Shares by the Underwriters.
8.Except as described in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus and the Pricing Disclosure Package, there are no legal, governmental or regulatory investigations, actions, suits or proceedings pending or, to my knowledge, any legal, governmental or regulatory investigation, action, suit or proceedings threatened against the Company or any of its subsidiaries or to which any property of the Company or any of its subsidiaries is the subject, which would, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

Annex B-3
    




9.The Company and each subsidiary possess such valid and current certificates, authorizations or permits issued by the appropriate state, federal or foreign regulatory agencies or bodies necessary to conduct their respective businesses, and, to my knowledge, neither the Company nor any subsidiary has received any notice of proceedings relating to the revocation or modification of, or non-compliance with, any such certificate, authorization or permit which, singly or in the aggregate, if the subject of an unfavorable decision, ruling or finding, could have a Material Adverse Effect.
10.After due inquiry, I do not know of any legal or governmental actions, suits or proceedings pending or, to the best of my knowledge, threatened (i) against or affecting the Company or any of its subsidiaries, (ii) which has as the subject thereof any officer or director of, or property owned or leased by, the Company or any of its subsidiaries or (iii) relating to environmental or discrimination matters, where in any such case (A) there is a reasonable possibility that such action, suit or proceeding might be determined adversely to the Company or such subsidiary and (B) any such action, suit or proceeding, if so determined adversely, would reasonably be expected to, singly or in the aggregate, have a Material Adverse Effect or adversely affect the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. After due inquiry, I do not know of any existing or, to the best of my knowledge, threatened or pending, material labor dispute with the employees of the Company or any of its subsidiaries.
11.The documents incorporated by reference in the Prospectus and the Pricing Disclosure Package (other than the financial statements and related schedules therein, as to which no opinion is expressed), when filed with the Commission, complied as to form in all material respects with the requirements of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder.
12.To my knowledge, the offering or the sale of the Shares contemplated by the Underwriting Agreement does not give rise to any rights that entitle or will entitle any person to acquire from the Company any other shares of capital stock of the Company upon the issuance of the Shares.
13.To the best of my knowledge, neither the Company nor any subsidiary is in violation of its charter, by-laws or other organizational document, as the case may be.
The foregoing opinion is subject to the following qualifications:
(a)    I express no opinion as to:
(i)
waivers of defenses, subrogation and related rights, rights to trial by jury, rights to object to venue, or other rights or benefits bestowed by operation of law;
(ii)
releases or waivers of unmatured claims or rights;
(iii)
indemnification, contribution, or exculpation provisions, or provisions for the non-survival of representations, to the extent they purport to indemnify any party against, or release or limit any party’s liability for, its own breach or failure to comply with statutory obligations, or the extent such provisions are contrary to public policy;

Annex B-4
    




(iv)
provisions purporting to supersede equitable principles, including provisions requiring amendments and waivers to be in writing and provisions making notices effective even if not actually received;
(v)
provisions purporting to make a party’s determination conclusive; and
(vi)
exclusive jurisdiction or venue provisions.
(b)    I express no opinion as to any state securities or blue sky law, rule or regulation, or as to any federal or state anti-fraud statute, rule or regulation.
(c)    I express no opinion as to any legal requirements or restrictions applicable to any Underwriter or any investor.
(d)    My opinions in paragraphs 6 and 7 above are limited to laws and regulations that in my experience are normally applicable to transactions of the type contemplated by the Underwriting Agreement and do not extend to any environmental laws or regulations.
This opinion letter is limited to the matters stated herein, and no opinion is implied or may be inferred beyond the matters expressly stated. This opinion is rendered as of the date hereof, and I disclaim any obligation to update this opinion to advise you of matters that occur subsequent to the date hereof and that may affect the opinions expressed herein. This opinion may not be relied upon by any person or entity other than you, quoted in whole or in part or otherwise referred to in any report or document, furnished to any other person or entity (other than your legal counsel and employees) or relied upon for any purpose other than in connection with consummating the transactions described herein without my prior written approval.

Very truly yours,

Karla Villatoro de Friedman

Form of Opinion and 10b-5 Statement of Covington & Burling LLP
    


 

May [●], 2018

[●]
as Representative of the several Underwriters

c/o [●]
[●]

Ladies and Gentlemen:
We have acted as special counsel to TriState Capital Holdings, Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the sale by LM III TriState Holdings LLC and LM III-A TriState Holdings LLC (the “Selling Stockholders”) on the date hereof of [●] shares (the “Shares”) of common stock, no par value, of the Company (the “Common Stock”) pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, dated May [●], 2018 (the “Underwriting Agreement”), by and among the Company, the Selling Shareholders and [●], individually and acting as representative of each of the other underwriters named in Schedule A thereto (collectively, the “Underwriters”). This letter is delivered to you pursuant to Section 8(g)(ii) of the Underwriting Agreement.

Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms used herein have the meanings provided in the Underwriting Agreement.
We have reviewed:
(i)    the Underwriting Agreement;
(ii)    a specimen stock certificate for the Common Stock;
(iii)    the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-222074) with respect to the Shares (the “Registration Statement”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on December 15, 2017 (the “Registration Statement”), registering, inter alia, the Shares for sale under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”);
(iv)    notice of the Registration Statement’s effectiveness, dated December 21, 2017, posted on the website of the Commission at www.sec.gov (the “Notice of Effectiveness”);

Annex C-1
    




(v)    the preliminary prospectus, consisting of the prospectus, dated December 21, 2017 (the “Base Prospectus”), as supplemented by a preliminary prospectus supplement with respect to the offer and sale of the Shares, which was filed with the Commission on May [●], 2018 pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act (the “Preliminary Prospectus”); and
(vi)    the final Prospectus, consisting of the Base Prospectus, as supplemented by a final prospectus supplement with respect to the offer and sale of the Shares, which was filed with the Commission on May [●], 2018 pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act (the “Prospectus”).
We also have reviewed such corporate records, certificates and other documents, and such questions of law, as we have deemed necessary or appropriate for the purposes of this opinion.
We have assumed that all signatures are genuine, that all documents submitted to us as originals are authentic and that all copies of documents submitted to us conform to the originals. We have assumed further that (i) the Company is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and has all legal right, power and authority necessary to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under the Underwriting Agreement, (ii) the execution, delivery and performance by the Company of its obligations under the Underwriting Agreement have been duly authorized by the Company, (iii) the Shares have been duly and validly issued by the Company, (iv) the Underwriting Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by the Company and (v) the execution and delivery of the Underwriting Agreement by the Company does not violate or contravene any judgment, order, decree or permit issued by any court, arbitrator or governmental or regulatory authority or conflict with or result in the breach of, or constitute a default under, any material agreement or instrument binding on or affecting the Company or any subsidiary thereof or any of their respective properties or assets. We have assumed further that the certificates evidencing the shares of Common Stock conform to the specimen thereof examined by us and have been duly countersigned by the transfer agent for the Common Stock and duly registered by the registrar of the Common Stock.
We have relied as to certain matters on information obtained from public officials, officers of the Company and other sources believed by us to be responsible and on information regarding the Company contained in the Registration Statement and the Prospectus.
As used in this opinion, all references to the “Registration Statement,” the “Preliminary Prospectus” and the “Prospectus” include all material incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference therein, to the extent not modified or superseded by statements and other information in the Registration Statement, the Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus or in later-filed material so incorporated. References to the “Registration Statement” also include the information deemed, pursuant to Rule 430B under the Act, to be part of and included in the Registration Statement at the time the Registration Statement is deemed, pursuant to such Rule, to have become effective for purposes of liability of the Underwriters under Section 11 of the Act.

Annex C-2
    




As used in this opinion, “Pricing Disclosure Package” refers to the pricing information listed on Annex A to the Underwriting Agreement, together with the Preliminary Prospectus and each “free-writing prospectus” listed on annex A to the Underwriting Agreement.
Our opinion in paragraph 3 below as to the effectiveness of the Registration Statement is based solely on our review of the Notice of Effectiveness. Our statement in paragraph 3 below as to stop orders and related proceedings is based solely on a review of the list of stop orders on the Commission’s website at http://www.sec.gov/litigation/stoporders.shtml at [●] a.m. (New York City time) on the date hereof.
The expressions “to our knowledge” and “known to us” in paragraph 1 of this letter mean the actual knowledge, but not constructive or imputed knowledge, of the attorneys in our firm who have rendered legal services on behalf of our firm for the Company, without any representation or implication that any inquiry has been made with respect to such statements (other than the review of the Notice of Effectiveness and the website list of stop orders referred to above).
With respect to all matters of the law of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, we understand that you are relying upon the opinion, dated the date hereof, of Karla Villatoro de Friedman, counsel for the Company, delivered to you pursuant to Section 8(f)(i) of the Underwriting Agreement, and our opinion is subject to the same assumptions, qualifications and limitations with respect to such matters as are contained in such opinion.
Based upon the foregoing, and subject to the qualifications and assumptions set forth herein, we are of the opinion that, insofar as the law of the State of New York and the federal law of the United States of America are concerned:
1.The execution and delivery of the Underwriting Agreement by the Company does not violate or conflict with any New York or federal statute, law, rule or regulation or any judgment or decree known to us to which the Company or any of its property or assets is subject other than any such violation that would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.
2.No consent, approval, authorization or other action by or filing with any governmental agency or instrumentality of the United States of America is required on the part of the Company for the execution and delivery of the Underwriting Agreement except those required under federal and state securities laws.
3.The Registration Statement is effective under the Securities Act and no stop order suspending the effectiveness of the Registration Statement has been issued under the Securities Act and no proceedings for that purpose have been instituted or are pending or threatened by the Commission. The Preliminary Prospectus and the Prospectus have each been filed in the manner and within the time period required by Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act.
4.Except as to the financial statements, including the notes thereto, the financial schedules and other financial and statistical data that are included in the Registration Statement or the Prospectus, as to which we express no opinion, each of the Registration Statement, as of the date of its effectiveness, the Preliminary Prospectus, as of its date, and the Prospectus, as of

Annex C-3
    




its date, complied as to form in all material respects with the requirements of the Securities Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder.
5.The statements in the Prospectus under the caption “Certain United States Federal Income Tax Considerations,” insofar as such statements constitute summaries of the laws, regulations, legal matters, agreements or other legal documents referred to therein, are accurate in all material respects and fairly summarize the matters referred to therein.
6.The statements in the Prospectus incorporated by reference from the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 under the caption “Business—Supervision and Regulation,” insofar as such statements constitute summaries of the laws, regulations, legal matters, agreements or other legal documents referred to therein, are accurate in all material respects and fairly summarize the matters referred to therein.
7.The Company is not required to register as an “investment company” as such term is defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.
The foregoing opinion is subject to the following qualifications:
(a)    We express no opinion as to:
(i)
waivers of defenses, subrogation and related rights, rights to trial by jury, rights to object to venue, or other rights or benefits bestowed by operation of law;
(ii)

(iii)
indemnification, contribution, or exculpation provisions, or provisions for the non-survival of representations, to the extent they purport to indemnify any party against, or release or limit any party’s liability for, its own breach or failure to comply with statutory obligations, or the extent such provisions are contrary to public policy;

(b)    We express no opinion as to any state securities or blue sky law, rule, or regulation or as to any federal or state anti-fraud statute, rule or regulation. To the extent we are passing upon the compliance of the Underwriting Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby with the federal securities laws, we have necessarily assumed the accuracy, completeness and fairness of the statements made or included in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus.

Annex C-4
    




(c)    Except as set forth in paragraph 5 above, we express no opinion as to any tax laws or the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 or any comparable state law.
(d)    We express no opinion as to any legal requirements or restrictions applicable to any Underwriter or any investor.
(e)    Our opinions in paragraphs 1 and 2 above are limited to laws and regulations that in our experience are normally applicable to transactions of the type contemplated by the Underwriting Agreement and do not extend to laws or regulations relating to, or to licenses, permits, approvals and filings necessary for, the conduct of the Company’s business including, without limitation, the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956, as amended, and implementing regulations, or to any environmental laws or regulations.
In addition, as special counsel to the Company, we reviewed the Registration Statement, the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Prospectus and participated in discussions with your representatives and those of the Company, your counsel and the Company’s accountants. On the basis of the information which was reviewed by us in the course of the performance of the services referred to above, considered in the light of our understanding of the applicable law and the experience we have gained through our practice under the federal securities laws, we confirm to you that nothing which came to our attention in the course of such review has caused us to believe that (a) the Registration Statement, insofar as it relates to the offering of the Shares, at the time the Registration Statement is deemed, pursuant to Rule 430B under the Act, to have become effective for purposes of liability of the Underwriters under Section 11 of the Act, contained any untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, (b) the Pricing Disclosure Package, as of [●] [a][p].m. on May [●], 2018, contained an untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, or (c) the Prospectus, as of its date contained, or as of the date hereof contains, an untrue statement of a material fact or omitted or omits to state a material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.
The limitations inherent in the independent verification of factual matters and the character of determinations involved in the registration process are such, however, that we do not assume any responsibility for the accuracy, completeness or fairness of the statements contained in the Registration Statement or the Prospectus, except as specified in paragraphs 5 and 6 above. Also, we do not express any opinion or belief as to the financial statements, including the notes thereto, the financial schedules and the other financial and statistical data included or deemed incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Prospectus.
We are members of the bar of the District of Columbia and the State of New York. We do not express any opinion herein on any laws other than the law of the State of New York and the federal law of the United States of America.
This letter is given to you in your capacity as representative of the Underwriters and is solely for your benefit. It may not be disclosed to or relied upon by any other person or in any other capacity without our written consent.

Form of Opinion of Kirkland & Ellis LLP

Re:
Selling Stockholders of TriState Capital Holdings, Inc.
Ladies and Gentlemen:
We are issuing this letter on behalf of the selling stockholders listed on Exhibit A hereto (collectively, the “Selling Stockholders”), in response to the requirement in Section 8(h) of the Underwriting Agreement, dated May [●], 2018 (the “Underwriting Agreement”), among Tristate Capital Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), the persons listed on Schedule II thereto and the underwriter named in Schedule I thereto ( “you” or the “Underwriter”), relating to the sale by the Selling Stockholders to you of an aggregate [●] shares of the Company’s common stock, no par value per share (the “Shares”).
In connection with the preparation of this letter, we have, among other things, read:
(a)
the Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-222074) initially filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on December 15, 2017 and as subsequently amended, for the purpose of registering the offering of the Shares by the Selling Stockholders under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and as constituted at the time it became effective in accordance with Rule 430A promulgated under the Securities Act (the “Registration Statement”);
(b)
the Company’s base prospectus, dated December 21, 2017, as supplemented by the prospectus supplement, dated May [●], 2018, relating to the offering and sale of the Shares (the “Prospectus”);
(c)
an executed copy of the Underwriting Agreement;
(d)
copies of all certificates and other documents delivered today at the closing of the purchase and sale of the Shares to be sold by the Selling Stockholders pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement; and

Annex D-1

(e)
such other documents, records and other instruments as we have deemed necessary or appropriate in order to deliver the opinions set forth herein.
Subject to the assumptions, qualifications and limitations which are identified in this letter, we advise you that:
1.
The Underwriting Agreement has been duly authorized by each of the Selling Stockholders.
2.
The Underwriting Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by or on behalf of each of the Selling Stockholders.
3.
The execution and delivery of the Underwriting Agreement by each Selling Stockholder, and the sale by each Selling Stockholder of the Shares to be sold by such Selling Stockholder in accordance with the provisions of the Underwriting Agreement, do not and will not (i) violate or conflict with any of the terms or provisions of the certificate of formation and/or other organizational document of such Selling Stockholder, (ii) result in any breach of any of the terms and provisions of, or constitute a default (or an event which with notice or lapse of time, or both, would constitute a default) under, any agreement listed on the Specified Contracts Schedule (the “Specified Contracts”), it being expressly understood that in each case we express no opinion as to compliance with any financial covenant or test or cross-default provision in any Specified Contract, (iii) violate or conflict with any judgment, decree or order identified to us by such Selling Stockholder (we note that none were identified) of any court or any judicial, regulatory or other legal or governmental agency or body having jurisdiction over such Selling Stockholder, or (iv) violate any Specified Law, except in each of the cases of clauses (i) and (ii), for any such violation, conflict, breach or default which has been waived by the party or parties with power to waive such violation, conflict, breach or default, and except in each of the cases of clauses (ii), (iii) and (iv), for any such violation, conflict, breach or default which, individually or in the aggregate, would not materially adversely affect such Selling Stockholder’s ability to perform its obligations under the Underwriting Agreement.
4.
To our knowledge, no consent, approval, authorization, or order of, or qualification with, any governmental body or agency is required to be obtained by any Selling Stockholder under any Specified Law with respect to the sale of the Shares by such Selling Stockholder and the performance by such Selling Stockholder of its obligations under the Underwriting Agreement.
5.
Upon payment for the Shares to be sold by the Selling Stockholders to the Underwriter pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, delivery of such Shares, as directed by the Underwriter, to Cede & Co. (“Cede”) or such other nominee as may be designated by The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”), registration of such Shares in the name of Cede or

Annex D-2

May [●], 2018
Page 5




such other nominee and the crediting of such Shares on the records of DTC to securities accounts of the Underwriter: (A) under Section 8‑501 of the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect in the State of New York (the “UCC”), the Underwriter will acquire a “security entitlement” (within the meaning of Section 8-102(a)(17) of the UCC) in respect of such Shares; and (B) assuming the Underwriter has so acquired such security entitlement without notice of any adverse claim (within the meaning of Sections 8‑102(a)(1) and 8-105 of the UCC) to such Shares, no action based on any adverse claim (within the meaning of Sections 8-102(a)(1) and 8‑105 of the UCC) to such Shares may be asserted against the Underwriter. For purposes of our opinion in this paragraph 5, we have assumed that when such payment, delivery, registration and crediting occur, (x) the Shares being sold by the Selling Stockholders will have been registered in the name of Cede or such other nominee as may be designated by DTC, in each case on the Company’s share registry in accordance with its certificate of incorporation, by-laws and applicable law, (y) DTC will be a “clearing corporation” and thus a “securities intermediary” within the meaning of Section 8‑102 of the UCC and its jurisdiction for purposes of Article 8 of the UCC will be the State of the New York and (z) appropriate entries to the securities account or accounts in the name of the Underwriter on the records of DTC will have been made pursuant to the UCC.

Except for the activities described in this letter, we have not undertaken any investigation to determine the facts upon which the advice in this letter is based.
We have not undertaken any investigation or search of court records for purposes of this letter. We have assumed for purposes of this letter that: each document we have reviewed for purposes of this letter is accurate and complete, each such document that is an original is authentic, each such document that is a copy conforms to an authentic original, and all signatures on each such document are genuine; the parties to the Underwriting Agreement, other than the Selling Stockholders, had the power, corporate or other, to enter into and perform all obligations thereunder; each such document was duly authorized by all requisite corporate action of parties, other than the Selling Stockholders, and such documents were duly executed and delivered by each party thereto, other than the Selling Stockholders; and you have acted in good faith and without notice of any fact which has caused you to reach any conclusion contrary to any of the advice provided in this letter.
In preparing this letter, we have relied without independent verification upon: (i) information contained in certificates obtained from governmental authorities; (ii) factual information represented to be true in the Underwriting Agreement and other documents specifically identified at the beginning of this letter as having been read by us; (iii) factual information provided to us by the Selling Stockholders or their representatives; and (iv) factual

information we have obtained from such other sources as we have deemed reasonable. We have assumed that there has been no relevant change or development between the dates as of which the information cited in the preceding sentence was given and the date of this letter and that the information upon which we have relied is accurate and does not omit disclosures necessary to prevent such information from being misleading.
Whenever this letter provides advice about (or based upon) our knowledge of any particular information, such advice is based entirely on the actual knowledge at the time this letter is delivered on the date it bears by the lawyers with Kirkland & Ellis LLP who have spent substantial time representing the Selling Stockholders in connection with the sale of the Shares effected pursuant to the Prospectus.
Our advice on any legal issue addressed in this letter is based exclusively on the internal law of the State of New York, the Delaware Limited Liability Company Act, or the federal laws of the United States (collectively, the “Specified Laws”), without our having made any investigation as to the applicability of any specific law unless such advice expressly references a specific law, except that the opinions expressed in paragraph 5 of this letter are limited to the effect of Article 8 of the UCC. Our advice in this letter represents our opinion as to how that issue would be resolved were it to be considered by the highest court in the jurisdiction which enacted such law. None of the opinions or other advice contained in this letter considers or covers, and the term “Specified Law” does not include: (i) any disclosure requirement or any antifraud laws, rules or regulations or prohibition against misrepresentation, (ii) the federal securities, laws, rules and regulations and any state securities (or “blue sky”) laws, rules or regulations, (iii) laws, rules or regulations with respect to any financial statements or supporting schedules (or any notes to any such statements or schedules) or other financial information derived therefrom set forth in (or omitted from) the Registration Statement, the Prospectus, (iv) any laws, rules or regulations of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc.; and (v) any laws, statutes, governmental rules or regulations or decisions which in our experience are not usually considered for or covered by opinions like those contained in this letter or are not generally applicable to transactions of the type covered by the Underwriting Agreement, including any specific to the industry in which you, the Company or any Selling Stockholder is engaged. We express no opinion as to what law might be applied by any courts to resolve any issue addressed by our opinion and we express no opinion as to whether any relevant difference exists between the laws upon which our opinions are based and any other laws which may actually be applied to resolve issues which may arise. The manner in which any particular issue would be treated in any actual court case would depend in part on facts and circumstances particular to the case and would also depend on how the court involved chose to exercise the wide discretionary authority generally available to it. This letter is not intended to guarantee the outcome of any legal dispute that may arise in the future.

We do not assume any obligation to provide you with any subsequent opinion or advice by reason of any fact about which we did not have actual knowledge at that time, by reason of any change subsequent to that time in any law covered by any of our opinions, or for any other reason.
This letter is being provided to you pursuant to the provision in the Underwriting Agreement cited in the initial paragraph of this letter and may not be relied upon by you for any other purpose. Without our written consent: (i) no person (including any person that acquires securities from you) other than you may rely on this letter for any purpose; (ii) this letter may not be cited or quoted in any financial statement, prospectus, private placement memorandum or other similar document; (iii) this letter may not be cited or quoted in any other document or communication which might encourage reliance upon this letter by any person or for any purpose excluded by the restrictions in this paragraph; and (iv) copies of this letter may not be furnished to anyone for purposes of encouraging such reliance.
