CUSIP No.   694552100

 

This Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D originally filed by the Reporting Persons on April 20, 2012 with respect to the common stock (“Common Stock”) of Pacific Mercantile Bancorp (the “Company” or the “Issuer”), as amended by Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D filed by the Reporting Persons on April 10, 2013 (“Amendment No. 1”).  This Amendment is being filed to report the sale of all of the equity interests of the Company held by Carpenter Community BancFund, LP and Carpenter Community BancFund-A, LP, which may have been deemed to be beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons.  Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined in this Amendment have the meanings set forth in the original Schedule 13D or Amendment No. 1, as the case may be. This Amendment amends and restates, or supplements, as the case may be, Items 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the original Schedule 13D (as amended by Amendment No.1) as set forth below. Except as set forth herein, the original Schedule 13D, as amended by this Amendment and Amendment No. 1, is unmodified.

 

Item 4.        Purpose of Transaction.

 

Item 4 of the original Schedule 13D is hereby supplemented by adding the following information:

 

On September 14, 2018, Carpenter Community BancFund, LP and Carpenter Community BancFund-A, LP (the “Carpenter Funds”) sold all of their equity interest in the Company to certain accredited investors in privately negotiated transactions (the “Carpenter Disposition Transactions”).  The Carpenter Disposition Transactions included the sale of 1,467,155 shares of a new series of non-voting preferred stock designated as Series A Non-Voting Preferred Stock (the “Series A Non-Voting Preferred Stock”) that the Company issued to the Carpenter Funds in exchange for 1,467,155 shares of the Company’s common stock, no par value per share (the “Common Stock”), owned by the Carpenter Funds.  The shares of Series A Non-Voting Preferred Stock were issued to the Carpenter Funds to facilitate the Carpenter Disposition Transactions and have substantially the same rights, preferences and privileges of the Common Stock, except that the Series A Non-Voting Preferred Stock is not entitled to vote on any matter other than where required under California law and that each share of Series A Non-Voting Preferred Stock has a liquidation preference of $0.0001 per share over the Common Stock.

 

The lead investor in the Carpenter Disposition Transactions, Patriot Financial Partners III, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Patriot”), acquired 2,169,208 shares of Common Stock and 1,467,155 shares of the Series A Non-Voting Preferred Stock from the Carpenter Funds.  The remaining 3,781,230 shares of Common Stock held by the Carpenter Funds were sold to other accredited investors in privately negotiated transactions. After giving effect to the Carpenter Disposition Transactions, Patriot holds a 15.6% equity interest in the Company and the Carpenter Funds hold no shares of Common Stock or other equity interests in the Company.

 

Item 5.        Interest in Securities of the Issuer

 

Item 5 of the original Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

 

(a) and (b)

 

Edward J. Carpenter holds 12,409 shares of Common Stock and John D. Flemming holds 9,330 shares of Common Stock.  Each of the Reporting Persons disclaims beneficial ownership of all such securities except to the extent of his or its pecuniary interest therein.  Except as set forth in the first sentence of this paragraph, none of the Reporting Persons hold any shares of Common Stock or other equity interests of the Company.

 

(c)

 

Other than as reported in this Amendment and the Schedule 13D (as amended to date), none of the Reporting Persons has effected any transactions involving the Common Stock or any other equity interests of the Company in the 60 days prior to filing this Amendment.

 

10



 

CUSIP No.   694552100

 

(d)

 

As stated above, (i) Edward J. Carpenter holds 12,409 shares of Common Stock, (ii) John D. Flemming holds 9,330 shares of Common Stock, and (iii) Patriot holds a 15.6% equity interest in the Company, in each case, as of September 14, 2018.

 

(e)

 

Each Reporting Person ceased to be the beneficial owner of more than five percent of the Common Stock following the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Patriot SPA and the Other SPAs (each, as defined below) on September 14, 2018. Accordingly, this is an exit filing and the Reporting Persons’ final amendment to Schedule 13D.

 

Item 6.        Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer

 

Item 6 of the original Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated as follows:

 

Exchange Agreement

 

On September 14, 2018, the Company entered into an Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with the Carpenter Funds pursuant to which the Carpenter Funds exchanged an aggregate of 1,467,155 shares of the Common Stock, on a one-for-one basis, for 1,467,155 shares of Series A Non-Voting Preferred Stock.  The Exchange Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit A and incorporated by reference herein.

 

Stock Purchase Agreements

 

Patriot acquired the 2,169,208 shares of Common Stock  and 1,467,155 shares of the Series A Non-Voting Preferred Stock referred to in Item 4 above pursuant to the terms of a Stock Purchase Agreement, dated as of September 14, 2018 (the “Patriot SPA”), by and among the Company, Patriot and the Carpenter Funds.  The Patriot SPA is attached hereto as Exhibit B and incorporated by reference herein. The remaining 3,781,230 shares of Common Stock previously held by the Carpenter Funds were sold to other accredited investors in the Carpenter Disposition Transactions pursuant to stock purchase agreements (the “Other SPAs”) in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit C, which is incorporated by reference herein.

 

Item 7.                       Material to be Filed as Exhibits

 

Reference is made to the Exhibit Index to this Amendment, the contents of which are incorporated by reference herein.

(c)                                  The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by the Seller will not: (i) contravene any law, rule or regulation of any state or of the United States, or any order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award, or cause the suspension or revocation of any authorization, consent, approval or license, presently in effect to which the Seller is subject; (ii) conflict with or violate any provision of the certificate of formation, bylaws or equivalent organizational documents, each as amended to date, of the Seller and each of its subsidiaries or (iii) conflict with, accelerate the performance of or result in a breach of or default of any indenture or loan or credit agreement or any other agreement or instrument to which the Seller is a party or by which the Seller or its properties may be affected or bound.

 

(d)                                 The Seller’s delivery of the Shares to the Purchaser pursuant to Section 2(a) on the Closing Date shall transfer to the Purchaser good, marketable and unencumbered title to the Shares, free and clear of any charge, claim, condition, equitable interest, lien, option, pledge, security interest, right of first offer or first refusal, buy/sell agreement or any other restriction or covenant with respect to, or condition governing, voting, transfer, receipt of distribution or exercise of any other attribute of ownership (“Encumbrance”), other than (1) those created by the Purchaser, (2) those set forth in the Certificate of Determination, and (3) those created under federal and state securities laws, and provided that the Purchaser and the Shares acquired by the Purchaser shall be subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Other Agreements.  The Seller is, and immediately prior to the Closing the Seller will be the record and beneficial owner of, the Shares to be sold by the Seller.  The Shares owned by the Seller and to be transferred hereunder have been duly authorized and validly issued and are free of any preemptive rights. There are no voting trusts or other agreements or understandings to which the Seller is a party with respect to the voting of the Shares transferred hereunder.

 

(e)                                  The Assignment Separate from Certificate, if necessary, upon execution by the Seller, and any other instruments, agreements or instructions executed and delivered by the Seller to the Purchaser, the Company or the Company’s transfer agent pursuant to Section 2(a) will be valid and binding obligations of the Seller, enforceable in accordance with their respective terms, in order to effect the delivery and transfer of the Shares as set forth in Section 2(a).

(f)                                   The Seller has not relied upon any representation or other information from the Purchaser (whether oral or written) with respect to the Company other than as set forth in this Agreement.

 

(g)                                  The Seller has adequate information concerning the business and financial condition of the Company to make an informed decision regarding the sale of the Shares, pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Other Agreements, and has made its own analysis and decision to sell the Shares independently and without reliance upon the Purchaser or the Purchaser’s agents.

 

(h)                                 No orders, permissions, consents, approvals or authorizations of any Governmental Entity or other third party are required to be obtained by the Seller and no application, notification, request, registration or declaration is required to be filed with any Governmental Entity or other third party by the Seller in connection with the execution and delivery of this Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, except as may have been obtained prior to the Closing Date.  For purposes of this clause, “Governmental Entity” means any governmental or regulatory authority, agency, commission, body, court, tribunal or other governmental entity or authority having jurisdiction over the Seller.

 

(i)                                     There is no action, suit, proceeding or investigation pending, or to the Seller’s knowledge, currently threatened that questions the validity of this Agreement or the Other Agreements or the right of Seller to enter into this Agreement or to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby.

(k)                                 Neither the Seller nor any affiliate of the Seller, nor, to the Seller’s knowledge, any of its or their respective officers, directors, employees or agents, has employed any broker or finder or incurred any liability for any financial advisory fees, brokerage fees, finder’s fees or any other commissions or similar fees in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, except for the placement agent fees to be paid by the Seller to Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc (the “Placement Agent”).

 

(l)                                     To such Seller’s knowledge, the transactions contemplated under this Agreement and the Other Agreements will not be deemed a change in control of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or constitute any other triggering event which would result in (i) the obligation of the Company or any subsidiary thereof to make any payments under any employment, change in control or other agreements to which the Company or any of its subsidiaries is a party or (ii) the acceleration of vesting of any benefits under any employee benefit plan of the Company or any subsidiary thereof (a “Triggering Event”).

 

(m)                             During the period from July 11, 2018 through the date hereof, the Seller has not entered into any additional, or modified any existing, agreements, arrangements or understandings with any existing or future investors in the Company or any of its subsidiaries

that have the effect of establishing rights or otherwise benefiting such investor in a manner more favorable to such investor than the rights and benefits established in favor of the Purchaser by this Agreement and the Other Agreements, unless, in any such case, the Purchaser has been provided with such rights and benefits.

 

(n)                                 Neither the Seller, nor any of its affiliates, nor any person acting on its behalf, has engaged in any form of general solicitation or general advertising (within the meaning of Regulation D under the Securities Act (“Regulation D”)) in connection with the offer or sale of the Shares.

(b)                                 This Agreement has been duly and validly executed and delivered by the Purchaser, and constitutes the valid and binding obligations of the Purchaser, enforceable against the Purchaser in accordance with its terms, except (a) as limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other laws of general application affecting enforcement of creditors’ rights, and/or (b) as limited by general principles of equity that restrict the availability of equitable remedies.

 

(c)                                  The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by the Purchaser will not: (i) contravene any law, rule or regulation of any state or of the United States, or any order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award, or cause the suspension or revocation of any authorization, consent, approval or license, presently in effect that affects or binds the Purchaser; (ii) conflict with or violate any provision of the Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws or equivalent organizational documents, each as amended to date, of the Purchaser and each of its subsidiaries or (iii) conflict with, accelerate the performance of or result in a breach of or default of any indenture or loan or credit agreement or any other agreement or instrument to which the Purchaser is a party or by which the Purchaser or its properties may be affected or bound.

(j)                                    The Purchaser: (i) became aware of the offering of the Shares, and the Shares were offered to the Purchaser, solely by direct contact between the Purchaser and the Sellers or the Placement Agent, and not by any other means, including any form of “general solicitation” or “general advertising” (as such terms are used in Regulation D); (ii) reached its decision to invest in the Company independently from any other investor; (iii) has entered into no agreements with shareholders of the Company or other investors for the purpose of controlling the Company or any of its subsidiaries; and (iv) has entered into no agreements with shareholders of the Company or other investors regarding voting or transferring the Purchaser’s interest in the Company.

 

6.                                      Covenants of CompanyIf the transactions contemplated under this Agreement and the Other Agreements constitute a change in control of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or constitute any other triggering event which would result in (i) the obligation of the Company or any subsidiary thereof to make any payments under any employment, change in control or other agreements to which the Company or any of its subsidiaries is a party or (ii) the acceleration of vesting of any benefits under any employee benefit plan of the Company or any subsidiary thereof (a “Triggering Event”), the Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain waivers from the parties involved waiving (a) the right to receive any payments

(c)                                  Except with respect to claims based on fraud, after the Closing Date, (i) the rights of the Purchaser Indemnified Parties under Section 7(a) shall be the exclusive remedy of the Purchaser Indemnified Parties with respect to claims resulting from or relating to any misrepresentation, breach of warranty or failure to perform any covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement, and (ii) the rights of the Seller Indemnified Parties under Section 7(b) shall be the exclusive remedy of the Seller Indemnified Parties with respect to claims resulting from or relating to any misrepresentation or breach of warranty contained in this Agreement.

(d)                                 Construction.  This Agreement is the result of negotiations among and has been reviewed by each of the parties hereto and their respective counsel, if any; accordingly, this Agreement shall be deemed to be the product of all of the parties, and no ambiguity shall be construed in favor of or against any one of the parties; provided that the parties acknowledge and agree that each of the economic terms of this Agreement and the Other Agreements (including the Per Share Purchase Price) is the result of negotiations solely between the Seller and the Purchaser on an arms’ length basis without any role of the Company in setting such economic terms (including the Per Share Purchase Price).

(h)                                 Expenses.  If any action at law or in equity is necessary to enforce or interpret the terms of this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable, documented out-of-pocket attorneys’ fees, costs and necessary disbursements in addition to any other relief to which such party may be entitled.

 

(i)                                     Delays or Omissions.  No delay or omission to exercise any right, power or remedy accruing to any party under this Agreement, upon any breach or default of any other

 

9



 

party under this Agreement, shall impair any such right, power or remedy of such non-breaching or non-defaulting party nor shall it be construed to be a waiver of any such breach or default, nor an acquiescence therein, nor a waiver of or acquiescence in any similar breach or default thereafter occurring; nor shall any waiver of any single breach or default be deemed a waiver of any other breach or default theretofore or thereafter occurring.  Any waiver, permission, consent or approval of any kind or character on the part of any party of any breach or default under this Agreement, or any waiver on the part of any party of any provisions or conditions of this Agreement, must be in writing and shall be effective only to the extent specifically set forth in such writing.  All remedies, either under this Agreement or by law or otherwise afforded to any party, shall be cumulative and not alternative.

3.                                      Closing.  The closing of the sale to, and purchase by, the Purchaser of the Shares (the “Closing”) shall occur simultaneously with the execution of this Agreement on the date hereof, electronically or at such location as the Sellers and the Purchaser may mutually agree (the “Closing Date”).

(c)                                  The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by the Purchaser will not: (i) contravene any law, rule or regulation of any state or of the United States, or any order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award, or cause the suspension or revocation of any authorization, consent, approval or license, presently in effect that affects or binds the Purchaser; (ii) conflict with or violate any provision of the organizational documents (if Purchaser is an entity) of the Purchaser or any of its subsidiaries or (iii) conflict with, accelerate the performance of or result in a breach of or default of any indenture or loan or credit agreement or any other agreement or instrument to which the Purchaser is a party or by which the Purchaser or its properties may be affected or bound.

 

(d)                                 The Shares being acquired by the Purchaser are being acquired for investment for the Purchaser’s own account only, and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any “distribution” of the Shares within the meaning of the Securities Act.

 

(e)                                  The Purchaser has not relied upon any representation or other information from the Sellers (whether oral or written) or any of its directors, officers, employees, attorneys, agents or representatives, including the Placement Agent, with respect to the Company other than those as set forth in this Agreement.

4



 

(g)                                  Neither the Purchaser nor any affiliate of the Purchaser, nor, to the Purchaser’s knowledge, any of its or their respective officers, directors, employees or agents, has employed any broker or finder or incurred any liability for any financial advisory fees, brokerage fees, finder’s fees or any other commissions or similar fees in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.

 

(h)                                 After giving effect to the purchase of the Shares hereunder, Purchaser will not, either acting alone or together with any other person that may be affiliated with Purchaser, or may be considered to be acting in concert with Purchaser pursuant to 12 C.F.R.

(i)                                     The Purchaser has no present intention of acquiring control of the Company, will not acquire control of the Company in the future without the prior approval of applicable federal, state or local governmental entities, and is not participating in any joint activity or parallel action towards a common goal between or among such purchasers of acquiring control of the Company.

 

(j)                                    The Purchaser: (i) became aware of the offering of the Shares, and the Shares were offered to the Purchaser, solely by direct contact between the Purchaser and the Sellers or the Placement Agent, and not by any other means, including any form of “general solicitation” or “general advertising” (as such terms are used in Regulation D); (ii) reached its decision to invest in the Company independently from any other investor; (iii) has entered into no agreements with shareholders of the Company or other investors for the purpose of controlling the Company or any of its subsidiaries; and (iv) has entered into no agreements with shareholders of the Company or other investors regarding voting or transferring the Purchaser’s interest in the Company.

 

(k)                                 The Purchaser understands that the Shares are characterized as “restricted securities” under the Securities Act inasmuch as they are being acquired in a transaction not involving a public offering and that under the Securities Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, such securities may be resold without registration under the Securities Act only in limited circumstances. The Purchaser represents that it understands the resale limitations imposed by Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act and by the Securities Act on the Shares.

(i)                                     Delays or Omissions.  No delay or omission to exercise any right, power or remedy accruing to any party under this Agreement, upon any breach or default of any other party under this Agreement, shall impair any such right, power or remedy of such non-breaching or non-defaulting party nor shall it be construed to be a waiver of any such breach or default, nor an acquiescence therein, nor a waiver of or acquiescence in any similar breach or default thereafter occurring; nor shall any waiver of any single breach or default be deemed a waiver of any other breach or default theretofore or thereafter occurring.  Any waiver, permission, consent or approval of any kind or character on the part of any party of any breach or default under this Agreement, or any waiver on the part of any party of any provisions or conditions of this Agreement, must be in writing and shall be effective only to the extent specifically set forth in such writing.  All remedies, either under this Agreement or by law or otherwise afforded to any party, shall be cumulative and not alternative.
