Item 1.01     Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Merger Agreement

On May 31, 2018, Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. (“Orrstown”), the holding company for Orrstown Bank, entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Mercersburg Financial Corporation (“Mercersburg”), the holding company for First Community Bank of Mercersburg, pursuant to which Mercersburg will merge with and into Orrstown, the separate corporate existence of Mercersburg will thereupon cease, and Orrstown will continue as the surviving corporation (the “Merger”).
Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), each outstanding share of common stock, no par value per share, of Mercersburg (“Mercersburg Common Stock”) will be converted into the right to receive at the election of the holder thereof either (1) $40.00 in cash, without interest, or (2) 1.5291 shares of common stock, no par value per share, of Orrstown (“Orrstown Common Stock”), subject to proration to ensure that in the aggregate 85% of Mercersburg Common Stock will be converted to Orrstown Common Stock and the remaining 15% of Mercersburg Common Stock will be converted to cash.
  In connection with the Merger, one Mercersburg director will be appointed to the Board of Directors of both Orrstown and Orrstown Bank at the Effective Time of the Merger.
The Merger Agreement provides each of Mercersburg and Orrstown with specified termination rights. If the Merger is not consummated under specified circumstances, including if Mercersburg terminates the Merger Agreement for a Superior Proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement), Mercersburg has agreed to pay Orrstown a termination fee of $1,250,000.
The transaction is intended to qualify as a reorganization for federal income tax purposes and, as a result, the receipt of Orrstown Common Stock is intended to be tax-free. The consummation of the Merger is subject to customary closing conditions, including the receipt of regulatory approvals and approval by Mercersburg shareholders owning at least 60% of the shares of Mercersburg common stock outstanding. The Merger is currently expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2018.
The Merger Agreement has been unanimously approved by the Boards of Directors of each of Mercersburg and Orrstown.
The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference.
The Merger Agreement contains usual and customary representations and warranties that Orrstown and Mercersburg made to each other as of specific dates. The assertions embodied in those representations and warranties were made solely for purposes of the Merger Agreement



between Orrstown and Mercersburg and may be subject to important qualifications and limitations agreed to by Orrstown and Mercersburg in connection with negotiating its terms, including being qualified by confidential disclosures exchanged between the parties in connection with the execution of the Merger Agreement. Moreover, the representations and warranties are subject to a contractual standard of materiality that may be different from what may be viewed as material to shareholders, and the representations and warranties may have been used to allocate risk between Orrstown and Mercersburg rather than establishing matters as facts.
Voting Agreements
Simultaneously with the execution of the Merger Agreement, the members of Mercersburg’s Board of Directors and certain executive officers of Mercersburg have entered into voting agreements with Orrstown (collectively, the “Voting Agreements”) pursuant to which such individuals have agreed, among other things, to vote their respective shares of Mercersburg common stock in favor of the approval of the Merger Agreement at a special meeting of Mercersburg’s shareholders to be held for the purpose of approving the Merger Agreement.
The persons signing the Voting Agreements currently beneficially own an aggregate of approximately 5% of the outstanding Mercersburg common stock. The foregoing description of the Voting Agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Voting Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
Employment Agreement and Change In Control Agreement
Upon execution of the Merger Agreement, Orrstown and Orrstown Bank entered into an Employment Agreement (the “Employment Agreement”) and a Change in Control Agreement (the “Change in Control Agreement”), in each case with Robert J. Fignar, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mercersburg (the “Executive”), to be effective as of the closing date of the Merger.
The Employment Agreement provides that the Executive shall serve as the Market President for the Southern Region, defined as Franklin and Perry counties in Pennsylvania and Washington County, Maryland, of Orrstown Bank. During the term of the Employment Agreement, the Executive’s minimum annual base salary will be $230,000.  The Employment Agreement provides for a term of four years, plus an automatic extension of such term for an additional year, unless the executive is given at least sixty days’ notice of non-renewal. If the Executive is still employed upon attaining age 65, the Executive may provide notice of retirement in which event the Executive will receive salary continuation for a period of six months plus payment of 150% of the premium cost to maintain the Executive’s group life insurance benefit for a period of three years. Such retirement may be delayed, upon request of the Executive and approval of the Board of Directors, in one year increments. 
In the event that the Executive’s employment is terminated on or prior to the second anniversary of the closing date of the Merger by Orrstown or Orrstown Bank without



“Cause” (as defined in the Employment Agreement) or by the Executive for any reason, then the Executive will be paid severance equal to 2.99 times the sum of (1) his highest annual base salary during the three calendar years immediately preceding the closing date of the Merger and (2) the highest cash bonus and other cash incentive compensation earned by him with respect to one of the three calendar years immediately preceding the closing date of the Merger. The Executive would also be entitled to continue to participate in employee benefit plans for three years or receive a cash contribution in lieu thereof.
In the event that the Executive’s employment is terminated after the second anniversary of the closing date of the Merger by Orrstown or Orrstown Bank without Cause, or by Executive for “Good Reason” (as defined in the Employment Agreement), then the Executive will be paid severance equal to his base salary plus the average cash bonus amount received during the past three years for a period equal to the greater of (1) the remaining term of the agreement or (2) six months. The Executive would also be entitled to continue to participate in employee benefit plans for six months or receive a cash contribution in lieu thereof.
The Change in Control Agreement becomes effective after the second anniversary of the closing date of the Merger and provides that Orrstown and Orrstown Bank are to pay to the Executive the specified amounts of cash compensation and provide the specified health and welfare benefits in the event that the Executive’s employment is terminated by Orrstown or Orrstown Bank or any successor, without Cause, within the 90 day period immediately preceding, or the two years following, the occurrence of a “Change in Control” (as defined in the Employment Agreement) or if such termination is initiated by the Executive for any reason within six months following a Change in Control.
Upon a termination pursuant to a Change in Control occurring after the second anniversary of the closing date of the Merger, Orrstown and Orrstown Bank or any successor are obligated to pay to the Executive cash compensation in an amount equal to 2.99 times the sum of (1) his annual base salary immediately prior to the change in control and (2) his highest annual cash bonus and other annual incentive cash compensation awarded over the past three years. The Executive will also receive (A) an amount equal to any unvested employer contribution to the Executive’s 401(k), profit sharing, deferred compensation or other similar individual account plan plus an amount sufficient to pay federal, state and local income taxes on such unvested employer contributions and (B) up to $10,000 for outplacement services in which a cash bonus or other incentive compensation was awarded. Payment of this cash compensation is to be made in a single lump sum within thirty five days after the termination of employment.  The Change in Control Agreement further provides that, upon a Change in Control, if the plans governing the vesting and exercise rights of stock options, shares of restricted stock and other equity-based compensation units are silent on the subject of Change in Control, all such options, shares and units shall immediately become vested and exercisable as to all or part of the shares and rights covered thereby. In addition, Orrstown and Orrstown Bank or any successor are obligated to provide to the Executive for a two year term the life, disability, medical/health insurance and other health and welfare benefits in effect with respect to the Executive immediately prior to the termination pursuant to the Change in Control. The Executive, however, will continue to be responsible for the costs of such benefits to the same extent as other similarly situated active



employees of Orrstown Bank and the Executive’s spouse and/or eligible dependents will continue to be covered on the same terms that they were covered prior to the termination of employment.
The Change in Control Agreement provides that in the event any benefit or payment from Orrstown to the Executive shall be deemed to be an “Excess Parachute Payment”, as defined in Section 280G(b)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, then the aggregate present value of amounts or benefits payable to the Executive shall be reduced to the greater of (1) the highest aggregate present value of the amount due under the agreement that can be made without causing any payments or benefits to be an Excess Parachute Payment or (2) the largest portion of the amount due under the agreement that after taking into account all applicable state and federal taxes, including any taxes payable pursuant to Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code, results in a greater after-tax benefit to the Executive than the after-tax benefit to the Executive calculated under (1) above.
Pursuant to the Employment Agreement and Change In Control Agreement, the Executive has agreed, for a one year period following termination of employment, not to directly or indirectly engage in business competition with Orrstown or Orrstown Bank with respect to its services, products, processes, customers, methods of doing business and similar matters (1) within a 35 mile radius from any Mercersburg banking office if the Executive’s employment is terminated on or prior to the second anniversary of the closing date of the Merger and (2) within a 75 mile radius of Orrstown’s then current headquarters if the Executive’s employment is terminated after the second anniversary of the closing date of the Merger.  In addition, during the employment period and for one year thereafter, the Executive will not solicit or attempt to solicit, divert or appeal to any employees, customers, clients or referral sources of Orrstown, Orrstown Bank or any of their respective subsidiaries.
The foregoing descriptions of the Employment Agreement and Change in Control Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Employment Agreement and the Change in Control Agreement, copies of which are filed as Exhibit 10.2 and Exhibit 10.3, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference. 
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND WHERE TO FIND IT
In connection with the Merger, Orrstown will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) a Registration Statement on Form S-4 that will include a proxy statement of Mercersburg and a prospectus of Orrstown, as well as other relevant documents concerning the Merger. Investors and shareholders are urged to read the Registration Statement and the Proxy Statement/Prospectus regarding the Merger when it becomes available and any other relevant documents filed with the SEC, as well as any amendments or supplements to those documents, because they will contain important information. A free copy of the Registration Statement and Proxy Statement/Prospectus, as well as other filings containing information about Orrstown and Mercersburg, when they become available, may be obtained at the SEC’s Internet site (www.sec.gov). Copies of the Registration Statement and Proxy Statement/Prospectus (when they become available) and the filings that will be incorporated by reference therein may also be



obtained, free of charge, from Orrstown’s website at www.orrstown.com or by contacting Orrstown’s Chief Financial Officer, David P. Boyle, at (717) 530-2294, or by contacting Mercersburg’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Robert J. Fignar, at (717) 328-3121.
FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements reflect the current views of Orrstown’s management with respect to, among other things, future events and Orrstown’s financial performance. These statements are often, but not always, made through the use of words or phrases such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “predict,” “potential,” “believe,” “will likely result,” “expect,” “continue,” “will,” “anticipate,” “seek,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “project,” “forecast,” “goal,” “target,” “would” and “outlook,” or the negative variations of those words or other comparable words of a future or forward-looking nature. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts, and are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about Orrstown’s industry, management’s beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and beyond Orrstown’s control. Accordingly, Orrstown cautions you that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, assumptions and uncertainties that are difficult to predict.  Although Orrstown believes that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable as of the date made, actual results may prove to be materially different from the results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. The following factors, among others listed in Orrstown’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, could cause the actual results of Orrstown’s operations to differ materially from expectations: failure to obtain the approval of the shareholders of Mercersburg in connection with the proposed acquisition; the timing to consummate the proposed acquisition; the risk that a condition to closing of the proposed acquisition may not be satisfied; the risk that a regulatory approval that may be required for the proposed acquisition is not obtained or is obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; the parties’ ability to achieve the synergies and value creation contemplated by the proposed acquisition; the parties’ ability to successfully integrate operations in the proposed acquisition; the effect of the announcement of the proposed acquisition on the ability of Mercersburg to maintain relationships with its key partners, customers and employees, and on its operating results and business generally; competition; changes in economic conditions, interest rates and financial markets; and changes in legislation or regulatory requirements. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive.
If one or more events related to these or other risks or uncertainties materialize, or if Orrstown’s underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual results may differ materially from what Orrstown anticipates. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made, and Orrstown does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise. New risks and uncertainties arise from time to time, and it is not possible for Orrstown to predict those events or how they may affect it. In addition, Orrstown cannot assess



the impact of each factor on Orrstown’s business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements, expressed or implied, included in this press release are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement.  This cautionary statement should also be considered in connection with any subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements that Orrstown or persons acting on Orrstown’s behalf may issue.

1.11    Dissenters’ Rights.    
(a)    Each outstanding share of Company Common Stock, the holder of which has perfected his right to dissent under applicable law and has not effectively withdrawn or lost such right as of the Effective Time (the “Dissenting Shares”), shall not be converted into or represent a right to receive the Merger Consideration hereunder, and the holder thereof shall be entitled only to such rights as are granted by the PBCL. The Company shall give Buyer prompt notice upon receipt by the Company of any such demands for payment of the fair value of such shares of Company Common Stock and of withdrawals of such notice and any other related communications served pursuant to the applicable provisions of the PBCL (any stockholder duly making such demand being hereinafter called a “Dissenting Stockholder”), and Buyer shall have the right to participate in all discussions, negotiations and proceedings with respect to any such demands. The Company shall not, except with the prior written consent of Buyer, voluntarily make any payment with respect to, or settle or offer to settle, any such demand for payment, or waive any failure to timely deliver a written demand for appraisal or the taking of any other action by such Dissenting Stockholder as may be necessary to perfect appraisal rights under the PBCL. Any payments made in respect of Dissenting Shares shall be made by the Surviving Corporation.
(b)    If any Dissenting Stockholder withdraws or loses (through failure to perfect or otherwise) his, her or its right to such payment at or prior to the Effective Time, such holder’s shares of Company Common Stock shall be converted into a right to receive the Merger Consideration in accordance with the applicable provisions of this Agreement. If such holder withdraws or loses (through failure to perfect or otherwise) his right to such payment after the Effective Time, each share of Company Common Stock of such holder shall be entitled to receive the Merger Consideration.
ARTICLE II MERGER CONSIDERATION;
ELECTION AND EXCHANGE PROCEDURES
2.1    Merger Consideration. Subject to the provisions of this Agreement, at the Effective Time, automatically by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of Buyer, the Company or any stockholder of the Company:
(a)Each share of common stock, no par value per share, of Buyer (“Buyer Common Stock”) that is issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall remain outstanding following the Effective Time and shall be unchanged by the Merger.
(b)Each share of Company Common Stock held in the treasury of the Company (“Treasury Stock”) immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be canceled and retired at the Effective Time without any conversion thereof, and no payment shall be made with respect thereto.
(c)Each share of Company Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than Treasury Stock and Dissenting Shares) shall become and be converted into, as provided in and subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement, the right to receive at the election of the holder thereof as provided in Section 2.4 either (1) $40.00 in cash, without interest (the “Cash Consideration”), or (2) 1.5291 shares (the “Exchange Ratio”) of Buyer Common Stock (the “Stock

3


Consideration”). The Cash Consideration and the Stock Consideration are sometimes referred to herein collectively as the “Merger Consideration.”
2.2    Rights as Stockholders; Stock Transfers. All shares of Company Common Stock, when converted as provided in Section 2.1(c), shall no longer be outstanding and shall automatically be canceled and retired and shall cease to exist and, except as to Dissenting Shares, each certificate (a “Certificate”) previously evidencing such shares shall thereafter represent only the right to receive, for each such share of Company Common Stock, the Merger Consideration and, if applicable, any cash in lieu of fractional shares of Buyer Common Stock in accordance with Section 2.3. At the Effective Time, holders of Company Common Stock shall cease to be, and shall have no rights as, stockholders of the Company, other than the right to receive the Merger Consideration and cash in lieu of fractional shares of Buyer Common Stock as provided under this Article II. After the Effective Time, there shall be no transfers on the stock transfer books of the Company of shares of Company Common Stock, other than transfers of Company Common Stock that have occurred prior to the Effective Time.
2.3    Fractional Shares. Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, no fractional shares of Buyer Common Stock and no certificates or scrip therefor, or other evidence of ownership thereof, will be issued in the Merger. In lieu thereof, Buyer shall pay to each holder of a fractional share of Buyer Common Stock an amount of cash (without interest) determined by multiplying the fractional share interest to which such holder would otherwise be entitled by the average of the daily closing prices during the regular session of Buyer Common Stock on The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”) (as reported in The Wall Street Journal or, if not reported therein, in another authoritative source) for the ten consecutive trading days ending on the fifth Business Day immediately prior to the Closing Date, rounded to the nearest whole cent.
2.4    Election Procedures.
(a)    An election form and other appropriate and customary transmittal materials (which shall specify that delivery shall be effected, and risk of loss and title to Certificates shall pass, only upon proper delivery of such Certificates to a bank or trust company designated by Buyer and reasonably satisfactory to the Company (the “Exchange Agent”)) in such form as the Company and Buyer shall mutually agree (the “Election Form”), shall be mailed no less than 20 Business Days prior to the anticipated Closing Date or such other date as the Company and Buyer shall mutually agree (the “Mailing Date”) to each holder of record of Company Common Stock as of five Business Days prior to the Mailing Date. Each Election Form shall permit the holder of record of Company Common Stock (or in the case of nominee record holders, the beneficial owner through proper instructions and documentation) to (i) elect to receive the Cash Consideration for all or a portion of such holder’s shares (a “Cash Election”), (ii) elect to receive the Stock Consideration for all or a portion of such holder’s shares (a “Stock Election”), or (iii) make no election with respect to the receipt of the Cash Consideration or the Stock Consideration (a “Non-Election”); provided, however, that, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, but subject to Section 2.5, eighty-five percent (85%) of the shares of Company Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (the “Stock Conversion Number”) shall be converted into the Stock Consideration and the remaining shares of Company Common Stock shall be converted into the Cash Consideration. A record holder acting in different capacities or acting on behalf of other Persons (as defined in Section 9.3) in any way will be entitled to submit an Election Form for each capacity in which such record holder so acts with respect to each Person for which it so acts. Shares of Company Common Stock as to which a Cash Election has been made are referred to herein as “Cash Election Shares.” Shares of Company Common Stock as to which a Stock Election has been made are referred to herein as “Stock Election Shares.” Shares of Company Common Stock as to which no election has been made (or as to which an Election Form is not properly completed and returned in a timely

4


fashion) are referred to herein as “Non-Election Shares.” The aggregate number of shares of Company Common Stock with respect to which a Stock Election has been made is referred to herein as the “Stock Election Number.”
(b)    To be effective, a properly completed Election Form shall be received by the Exchange Agent on or before 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on the 25th day following the Mailing Date (or such other time and date as mutually agreed upon by the parties (which date shall be publicly announced by Buyer as soon as practicable prior to such date)) (the “Election Deadline”), accompanied by the Certificates as to which such Election Form is being made or by an appropriate guarantee of delivery of such Certificates, as set forth in the Election Form, from a member of any registered national securities exchange or a commercial bank or trust company in the United States (provided, however, that such Certificates are in fact delivered to the Exchange Agent by the time required in such guarantee of delivery; failure to deliver shares of Company Common Stock covered by such guarantee of delivery within the time set forth on such guarantee shall be deemed to invalidate any otherwise properly made election, unless otherwise determined by Buyer, in its sole discretion). If a holder of Company Common Stock either (i) does not submit a properly completed Election Form in a timely fashion or (ii) revokes the holder’s Election Form prior to the Election Deadline (without later submitting a properly completed Election Form prior to the Election Deadline), the shares of Company Common Stock held by such holder shall be designated Non-Election Shares. Subject to the terms of this Agreement and of the Election Form, the Exchange Agent shall have reasonable discretion to determine whether any election, revocation or change has been properly or timely made and to disregard immaterial defects in any Election Form, and any good faith decisions of the Exchange Agent regarding such matters shall be binding and conclusive. Neither Buyer nor the Exchange Agent shall be under any obligation to notify any Person of any defect in an Election Form.
(c)    Subject to Section 1.11, the allocation among the holders of shares of Company Common Stock of rights to receive the Cash Consideration and the Stock Consideration will be made as set forth in this Section 2.4(c) (with the Exchange Agent to determine, consistent with Section 2.4(a), whether fractions of Cash Election Shares, Stock Election Shares or Non-Election Shares, as applicable, shall be rounded up or down).
(i)If the Stock Election Number exceeds the Stock Conversion Number, then all Cash Election Shares and all Non-Election Shares shall be converted into the right to receive the Cash Consideration, and, subject to Section 2.3 hereof, each holder of Stock Election Shares will be entitled to receive the Stock Consideration in respect of that number of Stock Election Shares held by such holder equal to the product obtained by multiplying (x) the number of Stock Election Shares held by such holder by (y) a fraction, the numerator of which is the Stock Conversion Number and the denominator of which is the Stock Election Number, with the remaining number of such holder’s Stock Election Shares being converted into the right to receive the Cash Consideration;
(ii)If the Stock Election Number is less than the Stock Conversion Number (the amount by which the Stock Conversion Number exceeds the Stock Election Number being referred to herein as the “Shortfall Number”), then all Stock Election Shares shall be converted into the right to receive the Stock Consideration and the Non-Election Shares and the Cash Election Shares shall be treated in the following manner:
(A)if the Shortfall Number is less than or equal to the number of Non-Election Shares, then all Cash Election Shares shall be converted into the right to receive the Cash Consideration and, subject to Section 2.3 hereof, each holder of Non-Election Shares shall receive the Stock Consideration in respect of that number of Non-Election Shares held by such holder equal to the product obtained by multiplying (x) the number of Non-Election Shares held by such holder by (y) a

5


fraction, the numerator of which is the Shortfall Number and the denominator of which is the total number of Non-Election Shares, with the remaining number of such holder’s Non-Election Shares being converted into the right to receive the Cash Consideration; or
(B)if the Shortfall Number exceeds the number of Non-Election Shares, then all Non-Election Shares shall be converted into the right to receive the Stock Consideration, and, subject to Section 2.3 hereof, each holder of Cash Election Shares shall receive the Stock Consideration in respect of that number of Cash Election Shares equal to the product obtained by multiplying (x) the number of Cash Election Shares held by such holder by (y) a fraction, the numerator of which is the amount by which (1) the Shortfall Number exceeds (2) the total number of Non-Election Shares and the denominator of which is the total number of Cash Election Shares, with the remaining number of such holder’s Cash Election Shares being converted into the right to receive the Cash Consideration.
2.5    Adjustments to Preserve Tax Treatment. If either the tax opinion referred to in Section 7.2(b) or the tax opinion referred to in Section 7.3(b) cannot be rendered (as reasonably determined, in each case, by the counsel charged with giving such opinion) as a result of the Merger potentially failing to satisfy the “continuity of interest” requirements under applicable federal income tax principles relating to reorganizations under Section 368(a) of the Code, then Buyer shall increase the Stock Conversion Number to the minimum extent necessary to enable the relevant tax opinions to be rendered.
2.6    Exchange Procedures.
(a)    On or before the Closing Date, for the benefit of the holders of Certificates, (i) Buyer shall cause to be delivered to the Exchange Agent, for exchange in accordance with this Article II, certificates representing the shares of Buyer Common Stock issuable pursuant to this Article II (“New Certificates”) and (ii) Buyer shall deliver, or shall cause to be delivered, to the Exchange Agent an aggregate amount of cash sufficient to pay the aggregate amount of cash payable pursuant to this Article II (including the estimated amount of cash to be paid in lieu of fractional shares of Buyer Common Stock) (such cash and New Certificates, being hereinafter referred to as the “Exchange Fund”).
(b)    As promptly as practicable following the Effective Time, and provided that the Company has delivered, or caused to be delivered, to the Exchange Agent all information which is necessary for the Exchange Agent to perform its obligations as specified herein, the Exchange Agent shall mail to each holder of record of a Certificate or Certificates who has not previously surrendered such Certificate or Certificates with an Election Form, a form of letter of transmittal (which shall specify that delivery shall be effected, and risk of loss and title to the Certificates shall pass, only upon delivery of the Certificates to the Exchange Agent) and instructions for use in effecting the surrender of the Certificates in exchange for the Merger Consideration into which the shares of Company Common Stock represented by such Certificate or Certificates shall have been converted pursuant to Sections 2.1, 2.3 and 2.4 of this Agreement. Upon proper surrender of a Certificate for exchange and cancellation to the Exchange Agent, together with a properly completed letter of transmittal, duly executed, the holder of such Certificate shall be entitled to receive in exchange therefor, as applicable, (i) a New Certificate representing that number of shares of Buyer Common Stock (if any) to which such former holder of Company Common Stock shall have become entitled pursuant to this Agreement, (ii) a check representing that amount of cash (if any) to which such former holder of Company Common Stock shall have become entitled pursuant to this Agreement and/or (iii) a check representing the amount of cash (if any) payable in lieu of a fractional share of Buyer Common Stock which such former holder has the right to receive in respect of the Certificate surrendered pursuant to this Agreement, and the Certificate so surrendered shall forthwith be canceled. Until surrendered as contemplated by this Section 2.6(b), each Certificate (other than Certificates representing Treasury Stock and Dissenting Shares) shall be deemed at any time after the Effective Time to represent only the right to receive upon such surrender the Merger Consideration

6


provided in Sections 2.1, 2.3 and 2.4 and any unpaid dividends and distributions thereon as provided in Section 2.6(c). No interest shall be paid or accrued on (x) any cash constituting Merger Consideration (including any cash in lieu of fractional shares) or (y) any such unpaid dividends and distributions payable to holders of Certificates.
(c)    No dividends or other distributions with a record date after the Effective Time with respect to Buyer Common Stock shall be paid to the holder of any unsurrendered Certificate until the holder thereof shall surrender such Certificate in accordance with this Section 2.6. After the surrender of a Certificate in accordance with this Section 2.6, the record holder thereof shall be entitled to receive any such dividends or other distributions, without any interest thereon, which theretofore had become payable with respect to shares of Buyer Common Stock represented by such Certificate.
(d)    The Exchange Agent and Buyer, as the case may be, shall not be obligated to deliver cash and/or a New Certificate or New Certificates representing shares of Buyer Common Stock to which a holder of Company Common Stock would otherwise be entitled as a result of the Merger until such holder surrenders the Certificate or Certificates representing the shares of Company Common Stock for exchange as provided in this Section 2.6, or an appropriate affidavit of loss and indemnity agreement and/or a bond in an amount as may be required in each case by Buyer. If any New Certificates evidencing shares of Buyer Common Stock are to be issued in a name other than that in which the Certificate evidencing Company Common Stock surrendered in exchange therefor is registered, it shall be a condition of the issuance thereof that the Certificate so surrendered shall be properly endorsed or accompanied by an executed form of assignment separate from the Certificate and otherwise in proper form for transfer, and that the Person requesting such exchange pay to the Exchange Agent any transfer or other tax required by reason of the issuance of a New Certificate for shares of Buyer Common Stock in any name other than that of the registered holder of the Certificate surrendered or otherwise establish to the satisfaction of the Exchange Agent that such tax has been paid or is not payable.
(e)    Any portion of the Exchange Fund that remains unclaimed by the stockholders of the Company for six months after the Effective Time (as well as any interest or proceeds from any investment thereof) shall be delivered by the Exchange Agent to Buyer. Any stockholders of the Company who have not theretofore complied with Section 2.6(b) shall thereafter look only to the Surviving Corporation for the Merger Consideration deliverable in respect of each share of Company Common Stock such stockholder holds as determined pursuant to this Agreement, in each case without any interest thereon. If outstanding Certificates for shares of Company Common Stock are not surrendered, or the payment for them is not claimed prior to the date on which such shares of Buyer Common Stock or cash would otherwise escheat to or become the property of any governmental unit or agency, the unclaimed items shall, to the extent permitted by abandoned property and any other applicable law, become the property of Buyer (and to the extent not in its possession shall be delivered to it), free and clear of all claims or interest of any Person previously entitled to such property. Neither the Exchange Agent nor any party to this Agreement shall be liable to any holder of shares of Company Common Stock represented by any Certificate for any consideration paid to a public official pursuant to applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar laws. Buyer and the Exchange Agent shall be entitled to rely upon the stock transfer books of the Company to establish the identity of those Persons entitled to receive the Merger Consideration specified in this Agreement, which books shall be conclusive with respect thereto. In the event of a dispute with respect to ownership of any shares of Company Common Stock represented by any Certificate, Buyer and the Exchange Agent shall be entitled to deposit any Merger Consideration represented thereby in escrow with an independent third party and thereafter be relieved with respect to any claims thereto.

7


(f)    Buyer (through the Exchange Agent, if applicable) shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from any amounts otherwise payable pursuant to this Agreement to any holder of shares of Company Common Stock such amounts as Buyer is required to deduct and withhold under applicable law. Any amounts so deducted and withheld shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to the holder of Company Common Stock in respect of which such deduction and withholding was made by Buyer.
2.7    Anti-Dilution Provisions. In the event Buyer or the Company changes (or establishes a record date for changing) the number of, or provides for the exchange of, shares of Buyer Common Stock or Company Common Stock issued and outstanding prior to the Effective Time as a result of a stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, reclassification, or similar transaction with respect to the outstanding Buyer Common Stock or Company Common Stock and the record date therefor shall be prior to the Effective Time, the Exchange Ratio and/or the Cash Consideration shall be proportionately and appropriately adjusted; provided, however, that, for the avoidance of doubt, no such adjustment shall be made with regard to the Buyer Common Stock if (i) Buyer issues additional shares of Buyer Common Stock and receives consideration for such shares in a bona fide third party transaction or (ii) Buyer issues employee or director stock grants or similar equity awards or shares of Buyer Common Stock underlying the same.
2.8    Reservation of Right to Revise Structure. Buyer may at any time change the method of effecting the business combination contemplated by this Agreement if and to the extent that it deems such a change to be desirable; provided, however, that no such change shall (a) alter or change the amount of the consideration to be issued to holders of Company Common Stock as merger consideration as currently contemplated in this Agreement, (b) reasonably be expected to materially impede or delay consummation of the Merger, (c) adversely affect the federal income tax treatment of holders of Company Common Stock in connection with the Merger, or (d) require submission to or approval of the Company’s stockholders after the plan of merger set forth in this Agreement has been approved by the Company’s stockholders. In the event that Buyer elects to make such a change, the parties agree to execute appropriate documents to reflect the change.

contracted) beneficially, directly or indirectly, any equity securities or similar interests of any Person, or any interest in a partnership or joint venture of any kind.
(c)    Each of the Company’s Subsidiaries has been duly organized and qualified under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization and is duly qualified to do business and in good standing in the jurisdictions where its ownership or leasing of property or the conduct of its business requires it to be so qualified, except where the failure to so qualify has not had and would not reasonably be expected to have, individually or in the aggregate, a Company Material Adverse Effect. A complete and accurate list of all such jurisdictions is set forth on Schedule 3.4(c) of the Company Disclosure Schedule.

Except as set forth on Schedule 3.13 of the Company Disclosure Schedule:
(a)    The Company and each of its Subsidiaries has filed all Tax Returns that it was required to file under applicable laws and regulations, other than Tax Returns that are not yet due or for which a request for extension was filed consistent with requirements of applicable law or regulation. All such Tax Returns are true, correct and complete in all material respects and have been prepared in substantial compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Taxes due and owing by the Company and each of its Subsidiaries (whether or not shown on any Tax Return) have been timely paid other than Taxes that have been properly reserved or accrued on the balance sheet of the Company and which the Company is contesting in good faith through appropriate proceedings. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is the beneficiary of any extension of time within which to file any Tax Return and neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries currently has waived any statute of limitations in respect of Taxes or agreed to any extension of time with respect to any Tax payment, assessment, deficiency or collection, which waiver or extension is still in effect. No claim has ever been made by an authority in a jurisdiction where the Company or any of its Subsidiaries does not file Tax Returns that it is or may be subject to taxation by that jurisdiction. There are no Liens for Taxes (other than Taxes not yet due and payable) upon any of the assets of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries.

Other than with respect to audits that have already been completed and resolved, neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries has received from any foreign, federal, state, or local taxing authority (including jurisdictions where the Company or any of its Subsidiaries has not filed Tax Returns) any (i) notice indicating an intent to open an audit or other review, (ii) request for information related to Tax matters, or (iii) notice of deficiency or proposed adjustment for any amount of Tax proposed, asserted, or assessed by any taxing authority against the Company or any of its Subsidiaries.

Section 1.1502-6 (or any similar provision of state, local, or foreign law), as a transferee or successor, by contract, or otherwise.
(g)    The unpaid Taxes of the Company and each of its Subsidiaries (i) did not, as of December 31, 2017, exceed the reserve for Tax liability (which reserve is distinct and different from any reserve for deferred Taxes established to reflect timing differences between book and Tax income) set forth on the face of the Company Financial Statements (rather than in any notes thereto), and (ii) do not exceed that reserve as adjusted for the passage of time in accordance with the past custom and practice of the Company and each of its Subsidiaries in filing its Tax Returns. Since December 31, 2017, neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries has incurred any liability for Taxes arising from extraordinary gains or losses, as that term is used in GAAP, outside the ordinary course of business consistent with past custom and practice.
(h)    Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries will be required to include any item of income in, or exclude any item of deduction from, taxable income for any taxable period (or portion thereof) ending after the Closing Date as a result of any: (i) change in method of accounting for a taxable period ending on or prior to the Closing Date; (ii) “closing agreement” as described in Code Section 7121 (or any corresponding or similar provision of state, local or foreign income Tax law) executed on or prior to the Closing Date; (iii) intercompany transactions or any excess loss account described in Treasury Regulations under Code Section 1502 (or any corresponding or similar provision of state, local or foreign income Tax law); (iv) installment sale or open transaction disposition made on or prior to the Closing Date; (v) prepaid amount received on or prior to the Closing Date; (vi) election with respect to the discharge of indebtedness under Section 108(i) of the Code; (vii) Tax incurred pursuant to Section 965 of the Code (or any corresponding or similar provision of state, local, or foreign Tax law); or (viii) any similar election, action, or agreement that would have the effect of deferring any liability for Taxes of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries from any period ending on or before the Closing Date to any period ending after the Closing Date.
(i)    The Company and each of its Subsidiaries has been treated as a subchapter C corporation for U.S. federal income Tax purpose since its formation. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries own any stock or other ownership interests in (i) any corporation which is a passive foreign investment company within the meaning of Section 1297 of the Code or a controlled foreign corporation within the meaning of Section 957 of the Code or (ii) any partnership, joint venture, limited liability company, or other entity taxed as a partnership or other pass-through entity for U.S. federal income tax purposes (or other arrangement or contract which could be treated as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes).

15


(j)    Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries has distributed stock of another Person or had its stock distributed by another Person in a transaction that was purported or intended to be governed in whole or in part by Section 355 or Section 361 of the Code.

(c)    Each Company Employee Program that is intended to qualify under Section 401(a) or 501(c)(9) of the Code is so qualified and has received a favorable determination or approval letter from the IRS with respect to such qualification, or may rely on an opinion letter issued by the IRS with respect to a prototype plan adopted in accordance with the requirements for such reliance, or has time remaining for application to the IRS for a determination of the qualified status of such Company Employee Program for any period for which such Company Employee Program would not otherwise be covered by an IRS determination and, to the Knowledge of the Company, no event or omission has occurred that would cause any Company Employee Program to lose such qualification.
(d)    Each Company Employee Program is, and has been operated, in compliance with applicable laws and regulations and is and has been administered in accordance with applicable laws and regulations and with its terms, in each case, in all material respects. No litigation or governmental administrative proceeding, audit or other proceeding (other than those relating to routine claims for benefits) is pending or, to the Knowledge of the Company, threatened with respect to any Company Employee Program or any fiduciary or service provider thereof and, to the Knowledge of the Company, there is no reasonable basis for any such litigation or proceeding. Except as disclosed in Schedule 3.14(d) of the Company Disclosure Schedules, all payments and/or contributions required to have been made with respect to all Company Employee Programs either have been made or have been accrued in accordance with the terms of the applicable Company Employee Program and applicable law and with respect to any such contributions, premiums, or other payments required to be made under or with respect to any Company Employee Program that are not yet due or payable, to the extent required by GAAP, adequate reserves are reflected on the Company Balance Sheet. The Company Employee Programs satisfy in all material respects the minimum coverage and discrimination requirements under the Code.
(e)    No Company Employee Program is a single employer pension plan (within the meaning of Section 4001(a)(15) of ERISA (as defined below)) for which the Company or any ERISA Affiliate could incur liability under Section 4063 or 4064 of ERISA or a plan maintained by more than one employer as described in Section 413(c) of the Code.

16


(f)    Neither the Company nor any ERISA Affiliate maintains or contributes to, or has ever maintained or contributed to, any Company Employee Program that is or was subject to Title IV of ERISA, Section 412 of the Code, Section 302 of ERISA or is a Multiemployer Plan (as defined below) and neither the Company nor any ERISA Affiliate has incurred any liability under Title IV of ERISA that has not been paid in full.
(g)    None of the Company Employee Programs provides health care or any other non-pension welfare benefits to any employees after their employment is terminated (other than as required by Part 6 of Subtitle B of Title I of ERISA or similar state law) and the Company has never promised to provide such post-termination benefits.
(h)    Each Company Employee Program may be amended, terminated, or otherwise modified by the Company to the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, including the elimination of any and all future benefit accruals thereunder and no employee communications or provision of any Company Employee Program has failed to effectively reserve the right of the Company or the ERISA Affiliate to so amend, terminate or otherwise modify such Company Employee Program. Neither the Company nor any of its ERISA Affiliates has announced its intention to modify or terminate any Company Employee Program or adopt any arrangement or program which, once established, would come within the definition of a Company Employee Program. Each asset held under each Company Employee Program may be liquidated or terminated without the imposition of any redemption fee, surrender charge or comparable liability.
(i)    Each Company Employee Program that constitutes in any part a nonqualified deferred compensation plan within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code has been operated and maintained in all material respects in operational and documentary compliance with Section 409A of the Code and applicable guidance thereunder. No payment to be made under any Company Employee Program is, or to the Knowledge of the Company, will be, subject to the penalties of Section 409A(a)(1) of the Code.
(j)    No Company Employee Program is subject to the laws of any jurisdiction outside the United States.
(k)    Except as set forth and quantified in reasonable detail on Schedule 3.14(k) of the Company Disclosure Schedule, neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement, the stockholder approval of this Agreement, nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby could (either alone or in conjunction with any other event) (i) result in, or cause the accelerated vesting payment, funding or delivery of, or increase the amount or value of, any payment or benefit to any employee, officer, director or other service provider of the Company or any of its ERISA Affiliates; (ii) limit the right of the Company or any of its ERISA Affiliates to amend, merge, terminate or receive a reversion of assets from any Company Employee Program or related trust; (iii) result in any “parachute payment” as defined in Section 280G(b)(2) of the Code (whether or not such payment is considered to be reasonable compensation for services rendered); or (iv) result in a requirement to pay any tax “gross-up” or similar “make-whole” payments to any employee, director or consultant of the Company or an ERISA Affiliate. Schedule 3.14(k) of the Company Disclosure Schedule lists the Company’s “disqualified individuals” for purposes of Section 280G of the Code. Each payment to be made under any Company Employee Program is, or to the Knowledge of the Company, will be deductible under Section 162(m) of the Code.

To the extent that any Contingent Workers are engaged by the Company, the Company classifies and has properly classified and treated them as Contingent Workers  in accordance with applicable law and for the purpose of all employee benefit plans and perquisites for at least the past three years. Schedule 3.15(c) of the Company Disclosure Schedule identifies each employee of the Company who is subject to an agreement that includes non-disclosure, non-competition and/or non-solicitation obligations to the

18


Company and includes a form of each such agreement.

No work stoppage involving the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is pending, or to the Knowledge of the Company, threatened. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is involved in, or, to the Knowledge of the Company, threatened with or affected by, any dispute, arbitration, lawsuit or administrative proceeding relating to labor or employment matters that would reasonably be expected to interfere in any respect with the respective business activities represented by any labor union, and to the Knowledge of the Company, no labor union is attempting to organize employees of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or has so attempted in at least the past three years.
3.16    Insurance. The Company and each of its Subsidiaries is insured, and during each of the past three calendar years has been insured, for reasonable amounts with financially sound and reputable insurance companies against such risks as companies engaged in a similar business would, in accordance with good business practice customarily be insured, and has maintained all insurance required by applicable laws and regulations. Schedule 3.16 of the Company Disclosure Schedule lists all insurance policies maintained by the Company and each of its Subsidiaries as of the date hereof, including, without limitation, any bank-owned life insurance policies (“BOLI”).

The value of the BOLI set forth on Schedule 3.16 of the Company Disclosure Schedule is fairly and accurately reflected on the Company Balance Sheet.

(c)    The Company shall promptly (and in any event within 24 hours) notify Buyer in writing if any inquiries, proposals or offers are received by, any information is requested from, or any negotiations or discussions are sought to be initiated or continued with, the Company or the Company Representatives, in each case in connection with any Acquisition Proposal, and such notice shall indicate the name of the Person initiating such discussions or negotiations or making such inquiry, proposal, offer or information request and the material terms and conditions of any proposals or offers and, in the case of written materials relating to such inquiry, proposal, offer, information request, negotiations or discussion, providing copies of such materials (including e-mails or other electronic communications).

(e)    Notwithstanding Section 6.5(d), prior to the date of the Company Meeting, the Company Board may withdraw, qualify, amend or modify the Company Recommendation (a “Company Subsequent Determination”) after the fifth Business Day following Buyer’s receipt of a notice (the “Notice of Superior Proposal”) from the Company advising Buyer that the Company Board has decided that a bona fide unsolicited written Acquisition Proposal that it received (that did not result from a breach of this Section 6.5) constitutes a Superior Proposal if, but only if, (i) the Company Board has reasonably determined in good faith, after consultation with outside legal counsel, that it is required to take such actions to comply with the standard of conduct required of a board of directors under the PBCL or other fiduciary duties owed to the Company’s stockholders under applicable law, (ii) during the five Business Day period after receipt of the Notice of Superior Proposal by Buyer (the “Notice Period”), the Company and the Company Board shall have cooperated and negotiated in good faith with Buyer to make such adjustments, modifications or amendments to the terms and conditions of this Agreement as would enable the Company to proceed with the Company Recommendation without a Company Subsequent Determination; provided, however, that Buyer shall not have any obligation to propose any adjustments, modifications or amendments to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and (iii) at the end of the Notice Period, after taking into account any such adjusted, modified or amended terms as may have been proposed by Buyer since its receipt of such Notice of Superior Proposal, the Company Board has again in good faith made the determination (A) in clause (i) of this Section 6.5(e) and (B) that such Acquisition Proposal constitutes a Superior Proposal. In the event of any material revisions to the Superior Proposal, the Company shall be required to deliver a new Notice of Superior Proposal to Buyer and again comply with the requirements of this Section 6.5(e), except that the Notice Period shall be reduced to three Business Days.
(f)    Notwithstanding any Company Subsequent Determination, this Agreement shall be submitted to the Company’s stockholders at the Company Meeting for the purpose of voting on, the approval of this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby (including the Merger) and nothing contained herein shall be deemed to relieve the Company of such obligation; provided, however, that if the Company Board shall have made a Company Subsequent Determination, then the Company Board may submit this Agreement to the Company’s stockholders without recommendation (although the resolutions adopting this Agreement as of the date hereof may not be rescinded), in which event the Company Board may communicate the basis for its lack of a recommendation to the Company’s stockholders in the Proxy Statement/Prospectus or an appropriate amendment or supplement thereto. In

45


addition to the foregoing, the Company Board shall not submit to the vote of its stockholders any Acquisition Proposal other than the Merger at the Company Meeting.

6.9    Indemnification; Directors’ and Officers’ Insurance.
(a)    Buyer agrees that all rights to indemnification and all limitations of liability existing in favor of any director, officer or employee of the Company or its Subsidiaries (the “Indemnified Parties”) as provided in the Company’s Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws or in the similar governing documents of the Company’s Subsidiaries or as provided in applicable law as in effect as of the date hereof with respect to matters occurring on or prior to the Effective Time shall survive the Merger.
(b)    Prior to the Effective Time, the Company shall purchase an extended reporting period endorsement under the Company’s existing directors’ and officers’ liability insurance coverage for the Company’s directors and officers in a form acceptable to the Company which shall provide such directors and officers with coverage for six years following the Effective Time of not less than the existing coverage under, and have other terms at least as favorable to, the insured persons than the directors’ and officers’ liability insurance coverage presently maintained by the Company, so long as the aggregate cost is not more than 200% of the annual premium currently paid by the Company for such insurance (the “Premium Limit”). In the event that the Premium Limit is insufficient for such coverage, the Company may enter into an agreement to spend up to that amount to purchase such lesser coverage as may be obtained with such amount.
(c)    In the event Buyer or any of its successors or assigns (i) consolidates with or merges into any other Person and shall not be the continuing or surviving corporation or entity of such consolidation or merger, or (ii) transfers or conveys all or substantially all of its properties and assets to any Person, then, and in each such case, to the extent necessary, proper provision shall be made so that the successors and assigns of Buyer shall assume the obligations set forth in this Section 6.9.
(d)    The provisions of this Section 6.9 are intended to be for the benefit of, and to grant third party rights to, and shall be enforceable by, each Indemnified Party and his or her heirs and representatives.
6.10    Employees and Benefit Plans.
(a)    From and for, at least, the 12 month period after the Effective Time, Buyer agrees to provide the employees of the Company and any of its Subsidiaries who remain employed after the Effective Time (collectively, the “Company Employees”) with at least the types and levels of employee benefits substantially comparable in the aggregate to those then maintained by Buyer for similarly-situated employees of Buyer. Buyer will treat, and cause its applicable Buyer Employee Programs to treat, the service of the Company Employees with the Company or any of its Subsidiaries as service rendered to Buyer or any of its Subsidiaries for purposes of eligibility to participate, vesting and for level of benefits (but not for benefit accrual under any defined benefit plan) attributable to any period before the Effective Time. Without limiting the foregoing, but subject to the terms and conditions of Buyer’s applicable Employee Programs, Buyer shall take commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Company’s employees to receive credit for their prior service for eligibility and vesting purposes in Buyer’s 401(k) plan and for purposes of determining the length of vacation, sick time, paid time off and severance under Buyer’s applicable plan or policy. Buyer shall also provide that the Company’s employees shall not be treated as “new” employees for purposes of any exclusions under any health or similar plan of Buyer for a pre-existing medical condition to the extent that any such exclusion did not apply under a health or similar plan of the Company or its Subsidiaries immediately prior to the Effective Time, and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide that any deductibles, co-payments or out-of-pocket expenses paid under any of the Company’s or any of its Subsidiaries’ health plans shall be credited towards deductibles, co-payments or out-of-pocket expenses under Buyer’s health plans upon delivery to Buyer of appropriate documentation, subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable Employee Program.

47


Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 6.10, service and other amounts shall not be credited to Company Employees (or their eligible dependents) to the extent the crediting of such service or other amounts would result in the duplication of benefits. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing to the contrary, none of the provisions contained herein shall operate to duplicate any benefit provided to any Company Employee or the funding of any such benefit.
(b)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Buyer shall have sole discretion with respect to the determination as to whether or when to terminate, merge or continue any employee benefit plans and programs of the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, unless a Company Employee affirmatively terminates coverage (or causes coverage to terminate) under a Company health plan prior to the time such Company Employee becomes eligible to participate in a health plan of Buyer or Buyer’s Subsidiary, no coverage of any of the Company Employees or their dependents shall terminate under any of the Company health plans prior to the time such Company Employees and their dependents become eligible to participate in the health plans, programs and benefits common to all employees of Buyer or any Buyer Subsidiary and their dependents.
(c)    From and after the Effective Time, Buyer agrees to honor and continue to be obligated to perform, or to cause Buyer Bank to honor and continue to be obligated to perform, in accordance with their terms, all contractual rights of current and former employees of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries listed or described in Schedule 6.10(c) of the Company Disclosure Schedule.
(d)    If requested by Buyer, the Company shall terminate its 401(k) plan effective as of the day prior to the Effective Time (but contingent upon the occurrence thereof) and adopt all required compliance amendments pursuant to written resolutions, the form and substance of which shall be reasonably satisfactory to Buyer. If the Company 401(k) plan is terminated, Buyer agrees to permit participants in the Company 401(k) plan who are Company Employees to roll over their account balances and outstanding loan balances from such plan to Buyer’s 401(k) plan, and such Company Employees who satisfy the eligibility requirements of Buyer’s 401(k) plan (taking into account credit for prior years of service with the Company pursuant to Section 6.10(a), other than for purposes of profit-sharing contribution) shall be eligible to immediately participate in Buyer’s 401(k) plan.
(e)    The Company shall contribute an amount necessary to ensure that the Company Bank’s Group Pension Plan is fully funded at the Effective Time.
(f)    Buyer agrees to honor the severance guidelines attached as Schedule 6.10(f) in connection with the termination of employment of any Company Employee, other than an employee who is a party to an employment agreement, change in control agreement or other separation agreement that provides a benefit on a termination of employment, whose employment is terminated involuntarily (other than for Cause, as defined in Schedule 6.10(f)) by the Company at the request of Buyer prior to the Effective Time or by Buyer within six (6) months following the Effective Time. Any such terminated Company Employee shall receive a lump sum severance payment in such amounts, at such times, and upon such conditions as set forth on said Schedule.
(g)    From the date hereof through the Closing, the Company shall, and shall cause its applicable Subsidiaries or Affiliates to, provide Buyer with reasonable access (at reasonable times, upon reasonable notice and in a manner that will not materially interfere with the normal operations of the Company) to the (i) employees of the Company and any of its Subsidiaries and (ii) the Company’s human resources personnel and personnel records (to the extent not prohibited by applicable law) for purposes of (A) facilitating an orderly transition of such employees from and after the Closing, (B) making announcements concerning, and preparing for the consummation of, the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and (C) engaging, communicating or meeting with and/or presenting to such employees on

48


either an individual or group basis with respect to matters related to their prospective continued employment with Buyer on and after the Closing. The Company and Buyer shall use reasonable best efforts to consult with each other, and will consider in good faith each other’s advice, prior to sending any notices or other communication materials to the employees of the Company and its Subsidiaries regarding this Agreement, the Merger or the effects thereof on the employment, compensation or benefits of such employees and, in any case, any such notice or communication materials shall comply with applicable law.
(h)    Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing contained in this Section 6.10 shall (i) be treated as an amendment of any particular Employee Program or any other employee benefit plan, program, policy, agreement or arrangement or (ii) give any third party, including any Company Employee, any former employee of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or any beneficiary representative thereof, any right to enforce the provisions of this Section 6.10. Nothing contained in this Agreement is intended to (x) confer upon any Company Employee or any other Person any right to continued employment after the Effective Time or (y) prevent Buyer or any of its Affiliates from amending, modifying or terminating any Employee Program or any other employee benefit plan, program, policy, agreement or arrangement.
(i)    Buyer shall designate, in mutual agreement with the Company, certain employees of Company and Company Bank who shall remain employed by Company and Company Bank through certain dates following the Effective Time and such employees may be eligible to receive retention bonuses. The amount, allocation and timing of payment of each such bonus will be determined by Buyer, in mutual agreement with the Company.
(j)    Buyer shall provide offer letters to the Persons set forth on Schedule 6.10(j), offering them employment with Buyer Bank, with such offers of employment to become effective at Closing.
6.11    Notification of Certain Matters. Each of Buyer and the Company shall give prompt notice to the other of any fact, event or circumstance known to it that (a) is reasonably likely, individually or taken together with all other facts, events and circumstances known to it, to result in any condition set forth in Article VII not being satisfied, or (b) notwithstanding the standards set forth in Section 9.1, would cause or constitute a material breach of any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements contained herein. No such notice by Buyer or the Company shall affect or be deemed to modify or waive any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement in this Agreement, or the conditions to Buyer’s or the Company’s obligations to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
6.12    Financial Statements and Other Current Information. As soon as reasonably practicable after they become available, but in no event more than 30 days after the end of each calendar month ending after the date of this Agreement, the Company shall furnish to Buyer (a) consolidated financial statements (including balance sheets, statements of operations and stockholders’ equity) of the Company and each of its Subsidiaries as of and for such month then ended, (b) internal management financial control reports showing actual financial performance against plan and previous period and (c) any reports provided to the Company Board or any committee thereof relating to the financial performance and risk management of the Company and its Subsidiaries.

6.18    Reasonable Best Efforts. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including, without limitation, Section 6.8), each of the parties to the Agreement agrees to use reasonable best efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all actions, and to do, or cause to be done, all things necessary, proper or advisable under applicable laws, so as to permit consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby as promptly as practicable, including the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Article VII hereof, and shall cooperate fully with the other parties hereto to that end.

(c)    by Buyer or the Company (provided that the terminating party is not then in material breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or other agreement contained herein), in the event of a breach by the other party of any representation, warranty, covenant or other agreement contained herein, which breach cannot be or has not been cured within 30 days after the giving of written notice to the breaching party of such breach or the Outside Date, if earlier, and such breach would entitle the non-breaching party not to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby under Article VII;
(d)    by Buyer or the Company, (i) in the event the approval of any Governmental Authority required for consummation of the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall (A) impose any term, condition or restriction upon Buyer or any of its Subsidiaries that Buyer reasonably determines, after consultation with the Company, is a Burdensome Condition, or (B) have been denied by final nonappealable action of such Governmental Authority, or (ii) any governmental entity of competent jurisdiction shall have issued a final nonappealable order, injunction or decree enjoining or otherwise prohibiting the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; provided, however, that subject to Section 6.8, the party seeking to terminate this Agreement shall have used its reasonable best efforts to have such order, injunction or decree lifted or to prevent such Burdensome Condition from being imposed;

If any company belonging to the Index Group or the Buyer declares or effects a stock dividend, reclassification, recapitalization, split-up, combination, exchange of shares, or similar transaction between the date of this Agreement and the Determination Date, the prices for the common stock of such company or the Buyer Common Stock shall be appropriately adjusted for the purposes of applying this Section 8.1(g).

For purposes of this Section 8.2(c), all references in the definition of Acquisition Transaction to “15%” shall instead refer to “50%.”
(d)    In the event that this Agreement is terminated by Buyer pursuant to Section 8.1(c) and (i) an Acquisition Proposal with respect to the Company shall have been announced, disclosed or otherwise communicated to the Company Board or senior management of the Company prior to any breach by the Company of any representation, warranty, covenant or other agreement giving rise to such termination by Buyer or during the cure period therefor provided in Section 8.1(c) and (ii) within 12 months of such termination, the Company shall have (x) recommended to its stockholders or consummated a transaction qualifying as an Acquisition Transaction or (y) entered into a definitive agreement with respect to an Acquisition Transaction, then the Company shall pay to Buyer an amount equal to the Termination Fee.

WHEREAS, concurrently with the execution of this Agreement, Buyer and the Company have entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (as such agreement may be subsequently amended or modified, the “Merger Agreement”), providing for the merger of the Company with and into Buyer (the “Merger”);
WHEREAS, the Stockholder beneficially owns (as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) and has sole voting power with respect to the number of shares of Common Stock indicated opposite the Stockholder’s name on Schedule 1 attached hereto (as used herein, the term “Shares” means all shares of Common Stock, whether such shares of Common Stock are held by the Stockholder on the date of this Agreement or are subsequently acquired prior to the Expiration Date (as defined in Section 2));
WHEREAS, it is a condition to the willingness of Buyer to enter into the Merger Agreement that the Stockholder execute and deliver this Agreement; and
WHEREAS, all capitalized terms used in this Agreement without definition herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Merger Agreement.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing recitals, the mutual covenants and agreements contained herein, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the Stockholder and Buyer agree as follows:
1.Agreement to Vote Shares. The Stockholder agrees that, prior to the Expiration Date, at any meeting of the stockholders of the Company, or any adjournment or postponement thereof, or in connection with any written consent of the stockholders of the Company, with respect to the Merger Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated thereby (including the Merger) or any Acquisition Proposal, the Stockholder shall:
(a)
appear at such meeting or otherwise cause the Shares to be counted as present thereat for purposes of calculating a quorum; and
(b)
vote (or cause to be voted) by person or by proxy, or deliver a written consent (or cause a written consent to be delivered) with respect to all of the Shares that such Stockholder shall be entitled to so vote (i) in favor of adoption and approval of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the Merger; (ii) against any action or agreement that would result in a breach in any material respect of any covenant, representation or warranty, or any other obligation or agreement of the Company contained in the Merger Agreement or of the Stockholder contained in this Agreement, or that would preclude fulfillment of a condition under the Merger Agreement to the Company’s and Buyer’s respective obligations to consummate the Merger; and (iii) against any Acquisition Proposal, or any agreement or transaction that is intended, or could reasonably be expected,



to impede, interfere with, delay, postpone, discourage or adversely affect the consummation of the Merger or any of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement.
Any such vote shall be cast or consent shall be given in accordance with such procedures relating thereto so as to ensure that it is duly counted for purposes of determining that a quorum is present and for purposes of recording the results of such vote or consent.
2.Expiration Date. As used in this Agreement, the term “Expiration Date” shall mean the earliest to occur of (i) the Effective Time of the Merger, (ii) such date and time as the Merger Agreement shall be terminated pursuant to Article VIII thereof, or (iii) upon mutual written agreement of the parties hereto to terminate this Agreement. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, no party shall have any further obligations or liabilities under this Agreement; provided, however, that such termination or expiration shall not relieve any party from liability for any willful breach of this Agreement prior to the termination or expiration hereof.
3.Subsequently Acquired Shares; Agreement to Retain Shares. The Stockholder agrees that any shares of Common Stock which are acquired after the date of this Agreement (whether by purchases in the open market, privately or otherwise) shall be bound by and subject to the terms of this Agreement. The Stockholder shall not, except as contemplated by this Agreement or the Merger Agreement, directly or indirectly, (a) sell, assign, transfer, or otherwise dispose of (including, without limitation, by the creation of a lien, claim, charge or other encumbrance or restriction of any kind whatsoever), any Shares, (b) enter into any contract, option, commitment or other arrangement or understanding with respect to the sale, transfer, assignment or other disposition of, any Shares, (c) deposit any Shares in a voting trust or enter into a voting agreement or similar agreement with respect to any Shares or grant any proxy or power of attorney with respect thereto other than in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, or (d) take any action that would make any representation or warranty of the Stockholder contained herein untrue or incorrect or have the effect of preventing or disabling the Stockholder from performing the Stockholder’s obligations under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Stockholder may make transfers of Shares (a) by will or by operation of law, in which case this Agreement shall bind the transferee, (b) in connection with estate and charitable planning purposes, including transfers to relatives, trusts and charitable organizations, subject to the transferee agreeing in writing to be bound by the terms of, and perform the obligations of the Stockholder under, this Agreement, and (c) as Buyer may otherwise agree in writing in its sole discretion. Upon the effective transfer of shares pursuant to this Section 3, the transferred shares shall no longer be considered “Shares” for purposes of the Stockholder’s rights and obligations hereunder.
4.Representations and Warranties of Stockholder. Except as disclosed on Schedule 1 hereto, the Stockholder hereby represents and warrants to Buyer as follows:
(a)
the Stockholder has the full power and authority to execute and deliver this Agreement and to perform the Stockholder’s obligations hereunder;
(b)
this Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by the Stockholder and (assuming this Agreement constitutes a valid and binding agreement of Buyer) is a valid and legally binding agreement with respect to the Stockholder, enforceable in accordance with its terms (except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent transfer and similar laws of general applicability relating to or affecting creditors’ rights or by general equity principles); and

(c)
the Stockholder beneficially owns the number of Shares indicated opposite such Stockholder’s name on Schedule 1, free and clear of any liens, claims, charges or other encumbrances or restrictions of any kind whatsoever, and has sole, and otherwise unrestricted, voting and investment power with respect to such Shares.
5. No Solicitation. From and after the date hereof until the Expiration Date, the Stockholder, in his or her capacity as a Stockholder of the Company, shall not, nor shall such Stockholder authorize any partner, officer, director, advisor or representative of, such Stockholder or any of his or her affiliates, other than the Company in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement (and, to the extent applicable to the Stockholder, such Stockholder shall use reasonable best efforts to prevent any of his or her representatives or affiliates, other than the Company in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement), to (a) initiate, solicit, induce or knowingly encourage, or take any action to facilitate the making of, any inquiry, offer or proposal which constitutes, or could reasonably be expected to lead to, an Acquisition Proposal, (b) participate in any discussions or negotiations regarding any Acquisition Proposal, or furnish, or otherwise afford access, to any person (other than Buyer) any information or data with respect to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or otherwise relating to an Acquisition Proposal, (c) enter into any agreement, agreement in principle or letter of intent with respect to an Acquisition Proposal, (d) solicit proxies or become a “participant” in a “solicitation” (as such terms are defined in Regulation 14A under the Exchange Act) with respect to an Acquisition Proposal (other than the Merger Agreement) or otherwise encourage or assist any party in taking or planning any action that would compete with, restrain or otherwise serve to interfere with or inhibit the timely consummation of the Merger in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement, (e) initiate a stockholders’ vote or action by consent of the Company’s stockholders with respect to an Acquisition Proposal, or (f) except by reason of this Agreement, become a member of a “group” (as such term is used in Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act) with respect to any voting securities of the Company that takes any action in support of an Acquisition Proposal.
6.Specific Enforcement. The parties hereto agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event any provision of this Agreement was not performed in accordance with the terms hereof or was otherwise breached. It is accordingly agreed that the parties shall be entitled to specific relief hereunder, including, without limitation, an injunction or injunctions to prevent and enjoin breaches of the provisions of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof, in any state or federal court located in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, in addition to any other remedy to which they may be entitled at law or in equity.

Exhibit
Exhibit 10.2

EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT


This Employment Agreement (“Agreement”) made as of May 31, 2018, by and among Orrstown Financial Services, Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation (“Orrstown”), Orrstown Bank, a bank and trust company organized under the Pennsylvania Banking Code of 1965 and a wholly owned subsidiary of Orrstown (the “Bank”) (Orrstown and the Bank are hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Employer”) and Robert J. Fignar, an adult individual (the “Executive”). This Agreement is being executed in connection with the Agreement and Plan of Merger by and between Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. and Mercersburg Financial Corporation dated May 31, 2018, (the “Merger Agreement”). The date on which the Effective Time (as defined by Section 1.2 of the Merger Agreement) of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement occurs shall be the effective date of this Agreement (the “Effective Date”). The Employer and Executive are also entering into a Change in Control Agreement (the “Change in Control Agreement”), to be effective on the second anniversary of the Effective Date, to provide certain rights and benefits to Executive in the event of a change of control of Orrstown.

BACKGROUND

Executive is currently party to an employment agreement with Mercersburg Financial Corporation and First Community Bank of Mercersburg (the “Mercersburg Employment Agreement”). Following the Closing, the Employer desires to retain the service of Executive and to enter into this comprehensive Agreement with the Executive, which supersedes the Mercersburg Employment Agreement (except as otherwise specified herein) and addresses the terms and conditions of Executive’s employment with the Employer, including but not limited to the consequences if the Executive’s employment is terminated for Good Reason or without Cause, each as defined herein. The Executive desires to be employed by Employer on the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants and agreements contained herein and intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties hereto agree as follows:

ARTICLE I. Capacity and Duties.
1.1    Capacity and Duties.
(a)Executive shall serve hereunder initially as Market President for the Southern Region, defined as Franklin and Perry Counties in Pennsylvania and Washington County, Maryland, and thereafter during the Employment Period (as defined in Section 2.1 below) in such other or additional positions as may be assigned by the Board of Directors of the Employer and/or the Bank (collectively, the “Board”) or by the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Employer acting on behalf of the Board. Executive shall perform such duties and shall have such authority consistent with Executive’s position as may from time to time reasonably be specified by the Board or by the President and Chief Executive Officer acting on behalf of the Board. Executive shall report directly to the Chief Executive Officer of the Employer and shall perform Executive’s duties for the Employer principally at the Employer’s then current headquarters, or at such other locations as may be determined by the Board or by the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Employer acting on behalf of the Board, except for periodic travel that may be necessary or appropriate in connection with the performance of Executive’s duties hereunder. The terms and conditions of this Agreement have been reviewed and approved by the Board’s Executive Compensation Committee, and such Committee shall review the Agreement on a four-



year cycle, or more frequently, to assess the continuing appropriateness of this Agreement in light of the then-current needs of the Employer. No change in duties of Executive shall in any way diminish the Base Salary payable to him pursuant to the provisions of Section 3 herein.
(b)Executive shall devote Executive’s full working time, energy, skill and best efforts to the performance of Executive’s duties hereunder, in a manner that will faithfully and diligently further the business and interests of the Employer, and shall not be employed by or participate or engage in or be a part of in any manner the management or operation of any business enterprise other than the Employer, (including, without limitation, participation by Executive on any unaffiliated profit or non-profit board of directors) except: (i) upon the prior written notice to and consent of Executive Committee of the Board or the Chief Executive Officer, or (ii) solely as an investor in real or personal property, the management of which shall not detract from the performance of his duties hereunder; provided, however, that the engagement by Executive in any such business activity shall at all times be in conformity with the Employer’s Code of Ethics, as the same may be amended or supplemented from time to time. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Executive shall terminate any such activity upon thirty (30) days’ written request by the Employer.
ARTICLE II. Term of Employment.
2.1    Term. The term of Executive’s employment under this Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and continue for a four (4) year-period if not sooner terminated or further extended pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (such period, as earlier terminated or further extended, the “Employment Period”). The Employment Period shall be extended automatically for one (1) additional year on each anniversary of the Effective Date, unless either the Employer or Executive gives contrary written notice to the other at least sixty (60) days prior to the anniversary date. It is the intention of the parties that this Agreement continue until (i) the expiration date if either party has given written notice to the other party of his or its intention not to renew this Agreement as provided above or (ii) the earliest of (a) the voluntary termination of Executive’s employment with the Employer by Executive other than for Good Reason (as defined in Section 4.2), (b) the voluntary termination of Executive’s employment by Executive for Good Reason, (c) the termination of Executive’s employment by the Employer for Cause (as defined in Section 4.4), (d) the termination of Executive’s employment by the Employer without Cause, (e) termination of Executive’s employment with the Employer due to the Disability (as defined in Section 4.5), (f) the termination of Executive’s employment with the Employer due to his Retirement (as defined in Section 4.1), or (g) the death of Executive. For the avoidance of doubt, written notice given by any party of an intention not to renew this Agreement does not, in and of itself, establish a right to any payments contemplated in Section 4 of this Agreement.
ARTICLE III. Compensation.
3.1    Basic Compensation. As compensation for Executive’s services hereunder, the Employer shall pay to Executive a salary at an initial annual rate equal to Two Hundred Thirty Thousand Dollars and No Cents ($230,000.00), payable in periodic installments in accordance with the Employer’s regular payroll practices in effect from time to time. Executive’s annual salary, as determined in accordance with this Section 3.1, is hereinafter referred to as Executive’s “Base Salary.” For years subsequent to the initial year of the Employment Period, Executive’s Base Salary shall be set by the Employer at an amount no less than the initial Base Salary. For each year in the Employment Period, Executive shall be a participant in any bonus and/or incentive compensation program for executives, including in particular any annual cash bonus plan and/or equity-based long term incentive plan, that the Employer may implement and administer from time to time during the Employment Period, and the amount and form of such bonus and incentive compensation shall be determined annually by the Employer consistent with its

2


Board’s executive compensation practices. Any annual bonus payable to Executive shall be paid in the first quarter of the following fiscal year on the date annual bonuses are paid to senior management employees generally, subject to Executive’s continued employment through such date. References herein to the amount of Executive’s Base Salary or annual cash bonus or cash incentive compensation shall be to the gross amount of such compensation element, exclusive of any elective compensation deferral agreements entered into by Executive from time to time. The determination of compensation payable by the Employer hereunder shall be made by the Executive Compensation Committee of the Board, or its designee, which shall perform an annual review of this Agreement, the Employee’s performance with the Employer and compensation payable hereunder. In such annual review, the Executive Compensation Committee shall consider the recommendations of the Board. The results of such review, including recommendation as to base salary adjustment and bonus, shall be reported to the Board and shall be memorialized in the minutes of the meetings of the Board or held in a confidential file by the Employer’s Human Resources Department.
3.2    Employee Benefits. In addition to the compensation provided for in Section 3.1, during the Employment Period, Executive shall participate in those of the Employer’s broad-based employee retirement plans, welfare benefit plans, and other benefit programs for which Executive is eligible under the terms of the plan or program, on the same terms and conditions that are applicable to employees generally. In addition, Executive may be eligible, as determined by the Executive Compensation Committee of the Board from time to time, during the Employment Period to participate in any of the Employer’s executive-only retirement plan, deferred compensation plan, welfare benefit plan, or other benefit programs, as and to the extent any such benefit programs, plans or arrangements are or may from time to time be in effect during the Employment Period.
3.3    Vacation and Leave. Executive shall be entitled to annual paid vacation, leave of absence and leave for illness or temporary disability in conformity with the Employer’s regular policies and practices, and any leave on account of illness or temporary disability shall not constitute a breach by Executive of Executive’s agreements hereunder.
3.4    Expense Reimbursement. During the Employment Period, the Employer shall reimburse Executive for all reasonable expenses incurred by Executive in connection with the performance of Executive’s duties hereunder in accordance with its regular reimbursement policies as in effect from time to time and upon receipt of itemized vouchers therefor and such other supporting information as the Employer may reasonably require.
ARTICLE IV. Termination of Employment.
4.1    Voluntary Termination or Retirement. In the event Executive’s employment is voluntarily terminated by the Executive other than for Good Reason (as defined in Section 4.2), Employer shall not thereafter be obligated to make any further payments hereunder other than amounts (including salary, expense reimbursement, and employee benefits) accrued under this Agreement as of the date of such termination in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Termination of Executive’s employment based on “Retirement” shall mean voluntary termination of Executive’s employment by Executive at any time after Executive reaches age 65 or in accordance with any retirement policy establish by the Board with Executive’s consent as it applies to him. In the event Executive’s employment terminates due to Retirement, the Employer shall be obligated to pay Executive an amount equal to six (6) months’ Base Salary payable during such six-month period in accordance with the Employer’s normal payroll processing intervals in effect from time to time at the rate in effect immediately prior to the date of termination, together with a lump sum payment within thirty-five (35) days after Executive’s termination date in an amount equal to 150% of the Employer’s actual premium cost of providing group term life insurance coverage to Executive for the three year period following Executive’s termination date,

3


applicable expense reimbursements and all accrued and unpaid benefits and vested benefits in accordance with the applicable employee benefit plans. Upon making the payments described in this Section 4.1, the Employer shall have no further compensation obligation to Executive hereunder.
4.2    Termination for Good Reason; Termination Without Cause.
(a)    Except as expressly provided in Section 2.2(a) and 2.2(b) of the Change in Control Agreement, in the event:
(i)Executive’s employment is terminated during the Employment Period by Executive for Good Reason (as defined herein) within two (2) years of the initial existence of the Good Reason condition; or
(ii)Executive’s employment is terminated during the Employment Period hereof by the Employer for any reason other than Cause (as defined herein):
then the Employer shall pay (or cause to be paid) to Executive, within thirty-five (35) days following termination, a one-time lump sum cash payment equal to (i) Executive’s Base Salary for: (A) six (6) months following such termination or (B) the remaining duration of the Employment Period (whichever is greater) and (ii) an amount equal to the average annual cash bonus over the past three calendar years preceding the calendar year in which the Executive’s termination of employment is effective (exclusive of any election to defer receipt of compensation Executive may have made). The amount paid in this Section 4.2 shall be subject to federal, state and local tax withholding. Executive shall also continue to be eligible to participate in the employee benefit plans referred to in Section 3.2 for a period of one (1) year (continuing to pay the employee portion of the premium costs for the active plan). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the applicable rules and regulations under Federal or Pennsylvania law prohibit the Employer from providing Executive with the post-termination group health or other benefits coverage, either directly or through COBRA, or if providing such coverage would subject the Employer to penalties or excise taxes, then the Employer shall continue to pay to the Executive the monthly amount equal to the COBRA premium amount being paid by its former employees who are eligible for such COBRA participation or other benefits coverage continuation, but the Employer shall not be required to provide the Executive with enrollment and participation in the actual plans in which the Employer’s employees are actually enrolled. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in lieu of ongoing coverage under the group term life insurance program, the Employer shall pay Executive a lump sum payment within thirty-five (35) days after Executive’s termination date in an amount equal to 150% of the Employer’s actual premium cost of providing group term life insurance coverage to Executive for the three year period following Executive’s termination date. If Executive is unable to continue to participate in any employee benefit plan or program provided for under this Agreement, Executive shall be compensated in respect of such inability to participate for a period of one (1) year through payment by the Employer to Executive, of an amount equal to the cost that would have been incurred by the Employer if Executive were able to participate in such plan or program (less the employee portion of the premium costs for the active plan) plus an amount which, when added to the Employer annual cost to the Employer, would be sufficient after Federal, state and local income and payroll taxes (based on the tax returns filed by Executive most recently prior to the date of termination) to enable the Executive to net an amount equal to the Employer annual cost to the Employer. The period of continued health coverage required by Section 4980(B)(f) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (“COBRA”) shall run concurrently with the coverage provided herein.

4



(b)    As used herein, Executive shall have “Good Reason” to terminate his employment if one of the following conditions (i) through (iii) comes into existence, Executive provides notice to the Employer of the existence of the condition within 90 days of its initial existence, and the Employer fails to remedy the condition within 30 days of receiving notice of its existence:
(i)    The Employer has materially breached its material obligations under this Agreement;
(ii)    The Employer, without Executive’s prior written consent, changes or attempts to change in any material respect the authority, duties, compensation, incentive compensation, benefits or other terms or conditions of Executive’s employment, or Executive’s reporting structure, in a manner that is adverse to the Executive; or
(iii)    The Employer requires Executive to relocate his principal business location 75 miles or more from the Employer’s then current headquarters.
(c)    For the avoidance of doubt, if Executive terminates his employment for any reason, including Good Reason, within two (2) years of the Effective Date, the provisions of Section 4.3 shall apply in lieu of this Section 4.2.
4.3    Voluntary Termination or Termination Without Cause Within Two Years of Effective Date.
(a)    In the event Executive’s employment is terminated either by (i) the Executive, for any reason, including death or Disability (as defined below) or (ii) the Employer, without Cause, within two (2) years of the Effective Date, in place of any amounts otherwise owed and payable by the Employer under Sections 4.1, 4.2 or 4.5, Executive shall be entitled to receive from the Employer the following compensation and benefits:
(i)    Executive shall be paid a cash payment equal to two point ninety-nine (2.99) times the sum of: (1) the highest annual Base Salary and (2) the highest cash bonus and other cash incentive compensation earned by him, in each case during the three (3) calendar years preceding the Effective Date; and
(ii)    For a period of thirty-six (36) months from the date of termination of employment, Executive shall be permitted to continue participation in, and Employer shall maintain the same level of, contribution for Executive’s participation in the Employer’s life, disability, medical/health insurance and other health and welfare benefits in effect with respect to Executive during the one (1) year prior to his termination of employment, or, if Employer is not permitted by the insurance carriers to provide such benefits because Executive is no longer an employee, a dollar amount equal to the cost to Executive of obtaining such benefits (or substantially similar benefits).
(b)    Limitation on Payment and Benefits.
(i)    Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event that a Change in Control occurs and it shall be determined that any payment or distribution by the Employer to or for the benefit of Executive, whether paid or payable or distributed or distributable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or otherwise (“Total Payments”) would otherwise exceed the amount (the “Safe Harbor Amount”) that may be received by Executive without the imposition of an excise tax under section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) and the Department of the Treasury (the

5


Department”) Regulations relating thereto, then the Total Payments shall be reduced to the extent, and only to the extent, necessary to assure that their aggregate present value, as determined in accordance with the applicable provisions of section 280G of the Code, does not exceed the greater of the following dollar amounts (the “Benefit Limit”):
A)    The Safe Harbor Amount, or
B)    The greatest after-tax amount payable to Executive after taking into account any excise tax imposed under section 4999 of the Code on the Total Payments.
(ii)    All determinations to be made under this Section 4.3(b) shall be made by an independent public accounting firm chosen by the Employer (the Accounting Firm”). In determining whether such Benefit Limit is exceeded, the Accounting Firm shall make a reasonable determination of the value to be assigned to the restrictive covenants in effect for Executive pursuant to this Agreement, and the amount of Executive’s potential parachute payment under section 280G of the Code shall be reduced by the value of those restrictive covenants to the extent consistent with section 280G of the Code.
(iii)    In the event the Internal Revenue Service notices Executive of an inquiry with respect to the applicability of section 280G of the Code or section 4999 of the Code to any payment by the Employer or its affiliates, or assessment of tax under section 4999 of the Code with respect to any payment by the Employer or its affiliates, Executive shall provide notice to Employer of such inquiry or assessment within ten (10) days, and shall take no action with respect to such inquiry or assessment until the Employer has responded thereto (provided such response is timely with respect to the inquiry or assessment). The Employer shall have the right to appoint an attorney or accountant to represent Executive with respect to such inquiry or assessment, and Executive shall fully cooperate with such representative as a condition of this Agreement with respect to such inquiry or assessment.
(iv)    All of the fees and expenses of the Accounting Firm in performing the determinations referred to in Section 4.3(b)(ii) or any attorney or accountant appointed to represent Executive pursuant to Section 4.3(b)(iii) shall be borne solely by Employer.
(v)    To the extent a reduction to the Total Payment is required to be made in accordance with this Section 4.3(b), such reduction and/or cancellation of acceleration of equity awards shall occur in the order that provides the maximum economic benefit to Executive. In the event that acceleration of equity awards is to be reduced, such acceleration of vesting also shall be canceled in the order that provides the maximum economic benefit to Executive. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any reduction shall be made in a manner consistent with the requirements of section 409A of the Code and where two economically equivalent amounts are subject to reduction but payable at different times, such amounts shall be reduced on a pro rata basis, but not below zero.
4.4    Termination for Cause. Executive’s employment hereunder shall terminate immediately upon notice of termination for Cause (as defined herein), in which event the Employer shall not thereafter be obligated to make any further payments hereunder other than amounts (including salary, expense reimbursement, and employee benefits) accrued under this Agreement or accrued or vested under the terms of any employee benefit plan or incentive and/or equity-based long term incentive plan as of the date of such termination in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. As used herein, “Cause” shall mean the following:

6


(a)    Executive shall have committed an act of personal dishonesty with respect to material communications with the Board or anyone to whom Executive reports;
(b)    Executive’s willful misconduct in the performance of his duties as an employee of the Employer;
(c)    the issuance of a final cease-and-desist order by a state or federal agency having jurisdiction over the Employer or any entity which controls the Employer to the extent such cease-and-desist order requires the termination of Executive’s employment;
(d)    Executive’s breach of fiduciary duty;
(e)    Executive’s material breach of any provision of this Agreement;
(f)    Executive’s willful violation of any law, rule or regulation that constitutes a felony (other than traffic violations or similar offenses);
(g)    Executive’s deliberate and intentional refusal or failure (for reasons other than incapacity due to accident or physical or mental illness) to perform Executive’s duties to the Employer, where such refusal or failure continues for a period of at least thirty (30) consecutive days following the receipt by Executive of written notice from the Employer setting forth in reasonable detail the facts upon which the Employer relies in concluding that Executive has deliberately and intentionally refused or failed to perform such duties; or
(h)    Executive’s conduct that brings public discredit on or injures the reputation of the Employer, in the Employer’s reasonable opinion.
4.5    Benefits Following Death or Disability.
(a)    Following Executive’s total disability (as defined below) or death during the Employment Period, the employment of the Executive will terminate automatically, in which event the Bank shall not thereafter be obligated to make any further payments hereunder other than amounts (including salary, expense reimbursement, and employee benefits) accrued under this Agreement or accrued or vested under the terms of any employee benefit plan, or incentive and/or equity based long-term incentive plan as of the date of such termination in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles or as otherwise specifically provided herein. For purposes hereof, “Disability” shall mean that the Executive, by reason of a medically determinable physical or medical impairment that can be expected to result in death or expected to last for a continuous period of at least twelve (12) months, (i) is unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity, or (ii) has received income replacement benefits for a period of at least three (3) months under an accident or health plan of the Employer.
(b)    In the event of a termination of this Agreement as a result of Executive’s death, the Employer shall, as soon as administratively practicable, pay Executive’s designated beneficiaries an amount equal to six months’ Base Salary at the rate and as required by Section 3.1 and in effect immediately prior to the date of death, together with payment in an amount equal to 100% of the premium cost of COBRA continuation coverage under the applicable health plan of the Employer or its Affiliates pursuant to Code Section 4980B for Executive’s (i) surviving spouse for the period commencing as of the first day of the first month next following Executive’s death and continuing for the duration of the applicable COBRA continuation period and (ii) dependent children for the period commencing as of the first day of the first month next following Executive’s death and continuing until the earlier of (A) the duration of the applicable COBRA continuation period, or (B) the date such dependent children cease to be “qualifying children”

7


under the Employer’s health plan, at the COBRA rate then in effect as of the date of Executive’s death (as reasonably determined by the Employer) (less the employee portion of the premium costs for the active plan) and assuming an annual 10% increase in the amount of such COBRA premium over the applicable periods of time described in this sentence. The period of continued health coverage required by COBRA shall run concurrently with the coverage provided herein. Executive’s dependents, beneficiaries and estate, as the case may be, will also receive such survivor’s income and other benefits as they may be entitled under the terms of the benefit programs, plans, and arrangements described in Section 3.2 which provide benefits upon the death of Executive.
(c)    In the event of a termination of this Agreement as a result of the Executive’s Disability, (A) the Employer shall pay Executive an amount equal to six (6) months’ Base Salary at the rate and as required by Section 3.1 and in effect immediately prior to the date of Disability, together with a payments in an amount equal to 100% of the premium cost of COBRA continuation coverage under the applicable health plan of the Employer or its affiliates pursuant to Code Section 4980B for Executive’s (i) individual coverage and that of his spouse for the period commencing as of the first day of the first month next following Executive’s termination as a result of Disability and continuing for the duration of the applicable COBRA continuation period and (ii) dependent children for the period commencing as of the first day of the first month next following Executive’s termination as a result of Disability and continuing until the earlier of (A) the applicable COBRA continuation period or (B) the date such dependent children cease to be “qualifying children” under the Employer’s health plan, at the COBRA rate then in effect as of the date of Executive’s termination as a result of Disability (as reasonably determined by the Employer) (less the employee portion of the premium costs for the active plan) and assuming an annual 10% increase in the amount of such COBRA premium over the applicable periods of time described in this sentence. The Employer shall also pay Executive payments within thirty-five (35) days after Executive’s termination date equal to 150% of the Employer’s actual premium cost of providing group term life insurance coverage to Executive for the three year period following Executive’s date of Disability and (A) thereafter for as long as Executive continues to be disabled, the Employer shall continue to pay an amount equal to at least 60% of Base Salary in effect immediately prior to the date of Disability until the earlier of Executive’s death or December 31 of the calendar year in which Executive attains age 65, reduced by any disability payments from any Employer provided disability insurance plans or programs and any benefits payments received from the Federal Social Security or applicable state disability benefits programs; and (B), to the extent not duplicative of the foregoing, Executive shall receive those benefits customarily provided by the Employer to disabled former employees, which benefits may include, but shall not be limited to, life, medical, health, accident insurance and a survivor’s income benefit. The period of continued health coverage required by COBRA shall run concurrently with the coverage provided herein.
(d)    For the purposes of (b) and (c) above, Executive or Executive’s dependents shall pay the same percentage of the total cost of coverage under the applicable employee benefit plans as Executive was paying, if any, when Executive’s employment terminated. The total cost of Executive’s continued coverage shall be determined using the same rates for health, life and/or disability coverage that apply from time to time to similarly situated active employees.
4.6    Death or Disability Following Termination of Employment. Executive’s disability or death following Executive’s termination of employment pursuant to Section 4.2 shall not affect Executive’s right, or if applicable, the right of Executive’s beneficiaries, to receive the payments for the balance of the period described in Section 4.2 or 4.3, as applicable, nor will it affect the right of Executive or Executive’s

8


beneficiaries to receive the balance of any other payments due hereunder and/or under the Change in Control Agreement.
4.7    Beneficiary Designation. Executive may, at any time, by written notice to the Employer, name one or more beneficiaries of any benefits which may become payable by the Employer pursuant to this Agreement. If Executive fails to designate a beneficiary any benefits to be paid pursuant to this Agreement shall be paid to Executive’s estate.
4.8    Preemptive Consideration. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, if Executive is suspended and/or temporarily prohibited from participating in the conduct of the Employer’s, or any of its affiliates’, affairs by a notice served under Section 8(e)(3) or (g)(1) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1818 (e)(3) and (g)(1) or any amendments or supplements thereto), the Employer’s obligations under this Agreement shall be suspended as of the date of service unless stayed by appropriate proceedings. If the charges in the notice are dismissed, the Employer may in its discretion (i) pay Executive all or part of the compensation withheld while this Agreement’s obligations were suspended, and (ii) reinstate (in whole or in part) any of its obligations which were suspended. If Executive is removed or permanently prohibited from participating in the conduct of the Employer’s, or any of its affiliates’, business affairs by an order issued by the FDIC or SEC, or equivalent provisions relating to a regulator with supervisory authority over the Employer or any of its affiliates, all obligations of the Employer and any of its affiliates under this Agreement shall terminate as of the effective date of the order, but vested rights of the parties shall not be affected.
4.9    FDIC Compliance. Notwithstanding anything herein contained to the contrary, any payments to Executive by the Employer, whether pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise, are subject to and conditioned upon their compliance with Section 18(k) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, 12 U.S.C. §1828(k) and FDIC regulation 12 C.F.R. Part 359, Golden Parachute and Indemnification Payments.

Executive acknowledges a duty of confidentiality owed to the Employer and shall not, at any time during or after Executive’s employment by the Employer, retain in writing, use, divulge, disclose, furnish, or make accessible to any person or entity, without the express authorization of the Board or senior management of the Employer, any trade secret, private or confidential information or knowledge of the Employer or any of their affiliates learned, obtained or acquired by Executive while so employed, including but not limited to, proprietary business information, products, processes, services, formulas, materials and formulations, research and development, techniques or know-how, financial records, sales records and data, customer lists, customer contact information and customer preference information, historical volumes, business strategies and competitive sales or marketing strategies and trade secrets as defined by Pennsylvania law. All computer software, business cards, customer lists, price lists, contract forms, catalogs, books, records, files and know-how acquired while an employee of the Employer are acknowledged to be the property of the Employer (or the applicable affiliate) and shall not be duplicated, removed from the Employer’s possession or made use of other than in pursuit of the Employer’s business. Upon the termination of the employment hereunder, the Executive shall deliver to the Bank all correspondence, reports, customer files, customer lists, office keys, manuals, advertising brochures, sample contracts, price lists, employee lists, prospective employee or customer lists, mailing lists, letters, records and any and all other documents pertaining to or containing information relative to the business of the Bank, and the Executive shall not remove any of such records either during the course of employment or upon the termination thereof.

Executive understands that in the event of a violation of the provisions of this Section 5.1, the Bank shall have the right to seek injunctive relief, in addition to any other existing rights provided herein or by operation of law, without the requirement of posting bond. The remedies provided in this Section 5.1 shall be in addition to any legal or equitable remedies existing between Executive, and shall not be construed as a limitation upon, or as alternative or in lieu of, such remedies.
5.2    Intellectual Property Rights. Executive agrees that all literary work, copyrightable material or other proprietary information or materials developed by the Executive during the term of this Agreement and relating to, or capable of being used or adopted for use in, the business of the Employer or any Affiliates shall inure to and be the property of the Employer and Affiliates and must be promptly disclosed to the Employer. Employee hereby transfers and assigns to Employer all rights in and to such Intellectual Property. Both during employment by the Employer and thereafter, the Executive shall, at the expense of the Employer, execute such documents and do such things as the Employer reasonably may request to enable the Employer or their nominee (i) to apply for copyright or equivalent protection in the United States, Canada and elsewhere for any literary work hereinabove referred in this paragraph, or (ii) to be vested with any such copyright protection in the United States, Canada and elsewhere.
5.3    Non-Competition and Non-solicitation.
(a)    During the Employment Period and for a Restricted Period (as defined below) after Executive ceases to be employed by or provide services to Employer, the Executive shall not:
(i)    be engaged (other than by the Employer), either directly or indirectly, as an officer, owner, shareholder (except as an investor owning less than 5% of the outstanding publicly traded stock of any corporation so engaged), general or limited partner, director, or employee or as an agent of, or a consultant to, or otherwise give financial or other assistance to, any person or entity engaged in (1) the banking or financial services industry, (2) starting a new bank, or (3) any other activity in which the Employer or any of its subsidiaries were engaged during the Employment Period, in any case within a seventy-five (75) mile radius from the headquarters of Employer at the time Executive ceases to be employed by Employer. Notwithstanding the above, if Executive voluntarily terminates his employment or is terminated by the Employer without Cause within two (2) years after the Effective Date, the geographic scope of this Section 5.3 shall be reduced to a thirty-five (35) mile radius of the headquarters of the legal or principal executive office of First Community Bank of Mercersburg and any branch banking office or other office of First Community Bank of Mercersburg as of the Effective Date.
(ii)    solicit, either directly or indirectly, current or former customers of the Employer or any of its subsidiaries to divert their business from the Employer or its subsidiaries;
(iii)    solicit, either directly or indirectly, any person who is employed by the Employer or any of its subsidiaries to leave the employment of the Employer.
(b)    The provisions of Section 5.3(a) shall be applicable commencing on the date of this Agreement and continue for two (2) years after the effective date of the termination of Executive’s employment in the case of Section 5.3(a)(i) and twelve (12) months in the cases of Sections 5.3(a)(ii) and (iii) (the “Restricted Period”). The covenants in this Section 5.3 shall not be affected by the circumstances surrounding termination of Executive’s employment, except as

10


expressly provided in the Change in Control Agreement or Section 5.3(a)(i) above, with respect to the timing of the termination of Executive’s employment.
(c)    The parties expressly acknowledge that the restrictions contained in this Section 5.3 are reasonable in order to preserve the Employer’s good will and other proprietary rights. Notwithstanding this acknowledgment, if a court having jurisdiction makes a final judicial determination that the duration or geographic scope of the restrictions in this Section 5.3 are unreasonable or otherwise unenforceable, the covenants in Section 5.3 shall not be rendered void but shall be amended to apply the maximum duration and geographic scope that such court may judicially deem or indicate to be reasonable.
(d)    For the purpose of Sections 5.2 and 5.3, the Employer shall be deemed to refer to the Employer and all of their present or future affiliates.
5.4    Injunctive and Other Relief.
(a)    Executive acknowledges and agrees that the covenants contained herein are fair and reasonable in light of the additional consideration paid hereunder, which Executive acknowledges is adequate and sufficient consideration, and that damages alone shall not be an adequate remedy for any breach by Executive of Executive’s covenants which then apply and accordingly expressly agrees that, in addition to any other remedies which the Employer may have, the Employer shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction for any breach or threatened breach of any such covenants by Executive without the requirement of posting a bond. Nothing contained herein shall prevent or delay the Employer from seeking, in any court of competent jurisdiction, specific performance or other equitable remedies in the event of any breach or intended breach by Executive of any of its obligations hereunder.
(b)    In the event Executive breaches Executive’s obligations under Section 5.3, the period specified therein shall be tolled during the period of any such breach and any litigation seeking remedies for such breach and shall resume upon the conclusion or termination of any such breach and any such litigation. The remedies set forth in this Section are cumulative and in addition to any and all other remedies available to the Employer at law or in equity.
(c)    In addition to other remedies contained in this Agreement to which the Employer may be entitled, the Employer shall receive attorney’s fees and any other expenses incident to the maintenance of any action to enforce its rights under this Agreement if such litigation is concluded or terminated, in whole or in part, in the Employer’s favor.
5.5    Disclosure. Executive agrees to disclose the restrictive covenants contained in Sections 5.2 and 5.3 of this Agreement to any prospective employer prior to employment with the prospective employer both during his employment by the Employer and for a period of two (2) years following termination of employment with the Employer.
5.6    Clawback. Executive acknowledges that the Executive is subject to any clawback policy that may be adopted by the Board. Absent any formal clawback policy, the Executive agrees that Executive shall be required to forfeit and pay back to the Employer any bonus or other incentive compensation paid to Executive if: (a) a court makes a final determination that the Executive directly or indirectly engaged in fraud or misconduct that caused or partially caused the need for a material financial restatement by the Employer; or (b) the independent members of the Board determine that the Executive has committed a material violation of the Employer’s Code of Conduct.

11


ARTICLE VI. Miscellaneous.
6.1    Invalidity. If any provision hereof is determined to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, Executive shall negotiate in good faith to provide the Employer with protection as nearly equivalent to that found to be invalid or unenforceable and if any such provision shall be so determined to be invalid or unenforceable by reason of the duration or geographical scope of the covenants contained therein, such duration or geographical scope, or both, shall be considered to be reduced to a duration or geographical scope to the extent necessary to cure such invalidity.
6.2    Assignment: Benefit. This Agreement shall not be assignable by Executive, and shall be assignable by the Employer only to any affiliate or to any person or entity which may become a successor in interest (by purchase of assets or stock, or by merger, or otherwise) to the Employer in the business or a portion of the business presently operated by it.

6.4    Entire Agreement and Modification. This Agreement between the parties, of even date herewith, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the matters contemplated herein and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings with respect thereto. Any amendment, modification, or waiver of this Agreement shall not be effective unless in writing and agreed and executed by the Employer and Executive. Neither the failure nor any delay on the part of any party to exercise any right, remedy, power or privilege shall preclude any other or further exercise of the same or of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege with respect to any occurrence and such failure or delay to

12


exercise any right shall be construed as a waiver of any right, remedy, power, or privilege with respect to any other occurrence.
6.5    Governing Law, Forum. This Agreement is made pursuant to, and shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (and United States federal law, to the extent applicable), without giving effect to otherwise applicable principles of conflicts of law. All actions hereunder shall be filed in the appropriate courts located in Cumberland and Franklin Counties, Pennsylvania and Executive consents to venue and jurisdiction therein.
6.6    Headings; Counterparts. The headings of sections and subsections in this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not affect its interpretation. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original and all of which, when taken together, shall be deemed to constitute but one and the same Agreement.
6.7    Further Assurances. Each of the parties hereto shall execute such further instruments and take such other actions as any other party shall reasonably request in order to effectuate the purposes of this Agreement.
6.8    Attorneys’ Fees and Related Expenses. All reasonable attorneys’ fees and related expenses incurred by Executive in connection with or relating to the review and negotiation of this Agreement or, if Executive prevails in connection with enforcing Executive’s rights under this Agreement, the enforcement by Executive of Executive’s rights under this Agreement, shall be paid in full by the Employer.
6.9    Mitigation. Executive shall not be required to mitigate the amount of any payment or benefit provided for in Section 4 herein or pursuant to the Change in Control Agreement by seeking employment or otherwise and shall not be entitled to set-off against the amount of any payments made pursuant to Section 4 or pursuant to the Change in Control Agreement herein with respect to any compensation earned by Executive arising from other employment.
6.10    Indemnification. Except to the extent inconsistent with the Employer’s certificate of incorporation or bylaws, the Employer will indemnify the Executive and hold Executive harmless to the fullest extent permitted by law with respect to Executive’s service as an officer and employee of the Employer and its subsidiaries, which indemnification shall be provided following termination of employment for so long as Executive may have liability with respect to Executive’s service as an officer or employee of the Employer and its subsidiaries. The Executive will be covered by a directors’ and officers’ insurance policy with respect to Executive’s acts as an officer to the same extent as all other officers of the Employer under such policies.
6.11    409A Safe Harbor. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, in no event shall the Employer be obligated to commence payment or distribution to the Executive of any amount that constitutes nonqualified deferred compensation within the meaning of Code Section 409A (“Section 409A”) earlier than the earliest permissible date under Section 409A that such amount could be paid without additional taxes or interest being imposed under Section 409A. The Employer and Executive agree that they will execute any and all amendments to this Agreement as they mutually agree in good faith may be necessary to ensure compliance with the distribution provisions of Section 409A and to cause any and all amounts due under this Agreement, the payment or distribution of which is delayed pursuant to Section 409A, to be paid or distributed in a single sum payment at the earliest permissible date under Section 409A. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event Executive is to receive a payment of compensation hereunder that is on account of a separation from service, such payment is subject to the provisions of Section 409A, and Executive is a key employee of the Employer, then payment shall not be made before the date that is six months after the date of separation from service (or,

13


if earlier than the end of the six month period, the date of the Executive’s death). Amounts otherwise payable during such six month payment shall be accumulated and paid in a lump sum on the first day of the seventh month. For purposes hereof, Executive is a key employee of the Employer if, on his date of separation from service, the Employer is publicly traded and he met the definition of key employee found in Code Section 416(i)(1)(A)(i), (ii) or (iii) (disregarding Section 416(i)(5)) as of the last day of the calendar year preceding the date of separation.
6.12    Taxes and Withholdings. All amount paid to Executive under this Agreement during for following the Employment Period shall be subject to withholding and other employment taxes imposed by applicable law. Executive shall be solely responsible for the payment of all taxes relating to the payment or provision of any amounts or benefits paid to Executive hereunder or otherwise.
6.13    Non-Disparagement: Upon termination of employment hereunder, Executive shall not malign, criticize or otherwise disparage Orrstown, the Bank or any of their affiliates or any of their respective officers, employees or directors.
6.14    Release. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, any severance or termination payments or benefits described are conditioned on Executive’s execution and delivery to the Employer of an effective general release and non-disparagement agreement in a form prescribed by the Employer and in substantial conformity with such agreement attached hereto as Annex A and in a manner consistent with the requirements of the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act and any applicable state law.
6.15    Other Rights. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to limit Executive’s right to (a) payment or reimbursement for welfare benefit claims incurred prior to the cessation of his employment under any group insurance plan, policy or arrangement of the Employer in accordance with the terms of such plan, policy or arrangement, (b) elect COBRA benefits in accordance with the applicable law, or (c) receive a distribution of vested accrued benefits from any employee pension benefit plan in accordance with the terms of that plan. Furthermore, nothing in this Agreement limits Executive’s ability to communicate with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including providing documents or other information, without notice to Orrstown or the Bank.
6.16    Survival. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the parties agree that the Employee’s obligations under Article 5 of this Agreement shall continue despite the expiration of the term of this Agreement or its termination.

Except for the payment provided in (iii) above, such payments shall be made in one lump sum within thirty-five (35) days of the Date of Termination following a Change in Control.

2


(b)    Except as provided in Section 2.2(d), if Executive’s employment is terminated by Employer for any reason in connection with a Change in Control within the Change in Control Period, or by Executive for any reason within six (6) months following a Change in Control, Executive shall continue to be eligible to participate in the expense reimbursement plan in Section 3.4 of the Employment Agreement and the employee benefit plans referred to in Section 3.2 of the Employment Agreement for a period of two (2) years (continuing to pay the employee portion of the premium costs for the active plan). Executive shall pay the same percentage of the total cost of coverage under the applicable employee benefit plans as Executive was paying when Executive’s employment terminated. The total cost of Executive’s continued coverage shall be determined using the same rates for health, life and/or disability coverage that apply from time to time to similarly situated active employees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the applicable rules and regulations under Federal or Pennsylvania law prohibit the Employer from providing Executive with the post-termination group health or other benefits coverage, either directly or through COBRA, or if providing such coverage would subject the Employer to penalties or excise taxes, then the Employer shall continue to pay to Executive the monthly amount equal to the COBRA premium amount being paid by its former employees who are eligible for such COBRA participation or other benefits coverage continuation, but the Employer shall not be required to provide Executive with enrollment and participation in the actual plans in which the Employer’s employees are actually enrolled. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in lieu of ongoing coverage under the group term life insurance program, the Employer shall pay Executive a lump sum payment within thirty-five (35) days after the Date of Termination, in an amount equal to 150% of the Employer’s actual premium cost of providing group term life insurance coverage to Executive for the three (3) year period following the Date of Termination. In addition, the Employer shall pay to Executive, in a single lump sum within thirty-five (35) days after the Date of Termination, an aggregate amount equal to two (2) additional years of the Employer retirement plan contributions by the Employer under each tax qualified or nonqualified defined contribution type of retirement plan in which Executive was a participant immediately prior to Executive’s termination of employment and equal to the actuarial present value of two (2) additional years of benefit accruals under each tax qualified or nonqualified defined benefit type of retirement plan in which Executive was a participant immediately prior to Executive’s termination or resignation, calculated in each case as if Executive had continued as a plan participant for the number of additional years indicated below, Executive’s annual compensation for plan purposes in the most recently completed plan year of each plan continued unchanged through these additional years, and the retirement plans continued to operate unchanged through the additional years. The actuarial equivalence factors and assumptions generally in use under any defined benefit plan shall be applied in determining lump sum present values of any defined benefit plan additional accruals payable hereunder. The period of continued health coverage required by Section 4980(B)(f) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (“COBRA”) shall run concurrently with the coverage provided herein.
(c)    Upon the occurrence of a Change of Control, the vesting and exercise rights of all stock options, shares of restricted stock, and other equity-based compensation units held by Executive pursuant to any stock option plan, stock option agreement, restricted stock agreement, or other long term incentive plan shall be governed by the terms of such plan or agreement, but in the event the plan or agreement is silent on the subject of change in control, all such options, shares, and units shall immediately become vested and exercisable as to all or any part of the shares and rights covered thereby.

3


(d)    Executive is to receive no payments under Section 2.2(a) and no benefits under Section 2.2(b) if Executive’s employment is terminated during a Change in Control Period by the death or “Disability” of Executive or if Executive is terminated during a Change in Control Period for “Cause” (as those terms are defined in Section 4 of the Employment Agreement). In an instance of death or Disability of the Executive, however, Executive and Executive’s dependents, beneficiaries and estate shall receive any benefits payable to them under the Employment Agreement.
(e)    References in this Section 2.2 to “the Employer” shall include the successors of the Employer, as applicable.
(f)    If any benefit or payment from the Employer to Executive (whether paid or payable or distributed or distributable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or otherwise) (a “Payment”) shall be determined to be an “Excess Parachute Payment,” as defined in Section 280G(b)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), then the aggregate present value of amounts or benefits payable to Executive pursuant to this Agreement (“Agreement Payments”) shall be reduced (but not below zero) to the Reduced Amount. The “Reduced Amount” shall be the greater of (i) the highest aggregate present value of Agreement Payments that can be paid without causing any payments or benefits hereunder to be an Excess Parachute Payment or (ii) the largest portion, up to and including the total, of the Agreement Payments that after taking into account all applicable state and federal taxes (computed at the highest applicable marginal rate) including any taxes payable pursuant to Section 4999 of the Code, results in a greater after-tax benefit to Executive than the after-tax benefit to Executive of the amount calculated under (i) hereof (computed at the highest applicable marginal rate). For purposes of this Section 2.2, present value shall be determined in accordance with Section 280G(d)(4) of the Code.
2.3    Revisions of Restrictive Covenants. If Executive’s employment is terminated in connection with a Change in Control, the “Restricted Period” under Section 5.3 of the Employment Agreement shall be revised automatically to equal the greater of six (6) months or the period extending from the Date of Termination to the first anniversary of the Change in Control.
2.4    Transition Services. For one (1) year following termination of employment after any Change in Control, Executive agrees to remain available to provide the Employer with transition assistance on matters with which Executive was involved during his employment. Executive shall render such assistance in a timely manner on reasonable notice from the Employer. Executive shall not be entitled to any separate compensation for the services described in this paragraph (other than reimbursement for reasonable out of pocket expenses actually incurred). The Employer agrees to provide reasonable advance notice of the need for Executive’s assistance and shall exercise reasonable efforts to schedule and limit such matters so as to avoid interfering with Executive’s personal and other professional obligations.
ARTICLE III. Miscellaneous.

3.1    Invalidity. If any provision hereof is determined to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, Executive shall negotiate in good faith to provide the Employer with protection as nearly equivalent to that found to be invalid or unenforceable and if any such provision shall be so determined to be invalid or unenforceable by reason of the duration or geographical scope of the covenants contained therein, such duration or geographical scope, or both, shall be considered to be reduced to a duration or geographical scope to the extent necessary to cure such invalidity.

Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. to Acquire Mercersburg Financial Corporation

SHIPPENSBURG, PA--May 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: ORRF) ("Orrstown") and Mercersburg Financial Corporation (OTC Pink: MCBG) ("Mercersburg") today announced the signing of a definitive agreement under which Mercersburg will merge with and into Orrstown. Mercersburg shareholders will receive a combination of stock and cash currently valued at $32.4 million.
Under the terms of the agreement, Mercersburg shareholders may elect to receive either 1.5291 Orrstown shares or $40.00 in cash for each Mercersburg share, subject to proration to ensure that, in the aggregate, 85% of Mercersburg's shares will be converted into Orrstown common stock and 15% of Mercersburg's shares will be exchanged for cash. The transaction is intended to qualify as a tax-free reorganization for federal income tax purposes.
The combination is expected to create significant value for both Orrstown and Mercersburg shareholders. Including the impact of merger-related benefits and charges, the transaction is projected to result in GAAP earnings per share accretion of approximately 8.7% in 2019, with an internal rate of return of approximately 18% and a tangible book value earn back period of approximately three years. In addition, Orrstown anticipates improvements in both its return on assets and return on tangible common equity - increases of approximately 10 basis points and 100 basis points, respectively - as the transaction leverages the company’s previous investments in personnel, infrastructure and technology.
Upon completion of the transaction, the combined bank is expected to have approximately $2 billion in assets, $1.3 billion in loans and $1.6 billion in deposits. With its combined lending teams, business development officers and branch network in south central Pennsylvania and Maryland, the combined organization will be better positioned to serve the businesses and consumers in its marketplaces.
The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2018. Following the closing, one of Mercersburg’s current directors, to be mutually agreed upon, will be added to the boards of directors of Orrstown and Orrstown Bank. In addition, Robert (“Bob”) J. Fignar, President and CEO of Mercersburg, will join Orrstown as Market President for Franklin and Perry counties in Pennsylvania and Washington County, Maryland.
Mr. Fignar commented, “This combination of two community banks with similar cultures will enable us to better meet the needs of our customers through enhanced products and services, including an outstanding mobile banking platform, and increased lending capacity. I am enthusiastic about what the combined organization can bring to the region and look forward joining the Orrstown team.”
Thomas R. Quinn, Jr., President and CEO of Orrstown, added, “Bob Fignar and his team are committed to the communities they serve. As Market President, Bob will have the autonomy and oversight for all aspects of financial services in Franklin, Perry, and Washington counties, including commercial banking, retail banking, wealth management and brokerage, and mortgage lending. Bob’s leadership and vision, combined with our increased market share, will serve as a great benefit to our customers. This is a big win for our region, our customers and our shareholders.”
William E. Sanders, Jr., Mercersburg’s Chairman, stated, “Mercersburg is excited to partner with a strong, well-managed company like Orrstown. The merger provides our shareholders with greater value for their investment, greater advancement opportunities for the staff, and increased service opportunities for our customers.”
Joel R. Zullinger, Orrstown’s Chairman, added, “Mercersburg and Orrstown share many similarities--from their founding in the first two decades of the 20th century through expansion beginning in the 1970s and 1980s woven together through personalized service and a community-first mentality. The customers and shareholders of both organizations can look forward to a continuation and expansion of the community banking model.”




The definitive agreement has been unanimously approved by the boards of directors of Orrstown and Mercersburg. The completion of the transaction is subject to Mercersburg’s stockholder approval and customary regulatory approvals. All Mercersburg directors, who own shares of Mercersburg's outstanding common stock, have entered into voting agreements to vote their shares in favor of the transaction.
Hovde Group, LLC served as financial advisor and Goodwin Procter LLP served as legal counsel to Orrstown. Ambassador Financial Group served as financial advisor and Stevens & Lee served as legal counsel to Mercersburg.

Special Note Concerning Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements include statements regarding the anticipated closing date of the transaction, estimated cost savings, tangible book value dilution and expected earn-back, the amount of accretion of the transaction to Orrstown’s earnings, internal rate of return, return on average assets and return on tangible common equity, and reflect the current views of Orrstown’s management with respect to, among other things, future events and Orrstown’s financial performance. These statements are often, but not always, made through the use of words or phrases such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “predict,” “potential,” “believe,” “will likely result,” “expect,” “continue,” “will,” “anticipate,” “seek,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “project,” “forecast,” “goal,” “target,” “would” and “outlook,” or the negative variations of those words or other comparable words of a future or forward-looking nature. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts, and are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about Orrstown’s industry, management’s beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and beyond Orrstown’s control. Accordingly, Orrstown cautions you that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, assumptions and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. Although Orrstown believes that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable as of the date made, actual results may prove to be materially different from the results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. The following factors, among others listed in Orrstown’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, could cause the actual results of Orrstown’s operations to differ materially from expectations: failure to obtain the approval of the shareholders of Mercersburg in connection with the proposed acquisition; the timing to consummate the proposed acquisition; the risk that a condition to closing of the proposed acquisition may not be satisfied; the risk that a regulatory approval that may be required for the proposed acquisition is not obtained or is obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; the parties’ ability to achieve the synergies and value creation contemplated by the proposed acquisition; the parties’ ability to successfully integrate operations in the proposed acquisition; the effect of the announcement of the proposed acquisition on the ability of Mercersburg to maintain relationships with its key partners, customers and employees, and on its operating results and business




generally; competition; changes in economic conditions, interest rates and financial markets; and changes in legislation or regulatory requirements. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive.
If one or more events related to these or other risks or uncertainties materialize, or if Orrstown’s underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual results may differ materially from what Orrstown anticipates. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on any such forward looking statements. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made, and Orrstown does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or review any forward looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise. New risks and uncertainties arise from time to time, and it is not possible for Orrstown to predict those events or how they may affect it. In addition, Orrstown cannot assess the impact of each factor on Orrstown’s business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements, expressed or implied, included in this press release are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. This cautionary statement should also be considered in connection with any subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements that Orrstown or persons acting on Orrstown’s behalf may issue. Annualized, pro forma, projected and estimated numbers are used for illustrative purposes only, are not forecasts and may not reflect actual results.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This document makes references to non-GAAP financial measures incorporating tangible equity and related measures, as well as core deposits. These measures are commonly used by investors in evaluating business combinations and financial conditions.
The calculation of tangible book value dilution includes transaction costs related to the business combination, including professional fees, severance, contract terminations, system conversion costs, and other one-time costs of the transaction. These costs are subtracted from equity as if they are all recorded by Orrstown at the time the acquisition is completed. These adjustments are stated net of a tax benefit based on the estimated tax deductibility of the projected costs.
Transaction costs are not included in reference to related earnings, including references to earnings accretion, the payback period for dilution to tangible book value, and cost save estimates. Orrstown anticipates that the transaction costs will total $3.0 million, pre-tax. It is presently undetermined as to which of these transaction costs will be recorded by Orrstown and which will be recorded by Mercersburg. [Accordingly, Orrstown is presently unable to estimate GAAP earnings related measures.]
Non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP measures; they should be read and used in conjunction with Orrstown’s GAAP financial information. In all cases, it should be understood that non-GAAP per share measures do not depict amounts that accrue directly to the benefit of shareholders.




Additional Information and Where to Find It
In connection with the proposed acquisition, Orrstown will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a Registration Statement on Form S-4 that will include a Proxy Statement of Mercersburg and a Prospectus of Orrstown as well as other relevant documents concerning the proposed acquisition.
