EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

The Registrant hereby amends its Registration Statement on Form S-4 (File No. 333-228455), filed with the Commission on November 16, 2018, as amended on December 10, 2018, and declared effective by the Commission on December 12, 2018 (the “Form S-4”), by filing this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 on Form S-8 (the “Post-Effective Amendment No. 1”).

Item 4. Description of Securities

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 5. Interests of Named Experts and Counsel

 

The validity of the Registrant Common Stock to be issued in connection with the Merger will be passed upon for the Registrant by Rachael R. Lape, Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of the Registrant. As of February 1, 2019, Ms. Lape held 1,789 shares of Registrant Common Stock and 1,685 shares of Registrant Common Stock subject to unvested restricted stock awards.

 

Item 6. Indemnification of Directors and Officers

 

The laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia pursuant to which the Registrant is incorporated permit it to indemnify its officers and directors against certain liabilities with the approval of its shareholders. The articles of incorporation of the Registrant, as amended to date (the “Union articles of incorporation”), provide that, to the full extent permitted by the Virginia Stock Corporation Act (the “VSCA”), the Registrant is required to indemnify a director or officer against liabilities, fines, penalties and claims imposed upon or asserted against him or her (including amounts paid in settlement) by reason of having been a director or officer and against all expenses (including counsel fees) reasonably incurred in connection therewith, except in relation to matters in which he or she has been adjudged liable because of willful misconduct or a knowing violation of the criminal law in his performance of his duty as such director or officer.

 

The Registrant has purchased officers’ and directors’ liability insurance policies. Within the limits of their coverage, the policies insure (i) the directors and officers of the Registrant against certain losses resulting from claims against them in their capacities as directors and officers to the extent that such losses are not indemnified by the Registrant and (ii) the Registrant to the extent that it indemnifies such directors and officers for losses as permitted under the laws of Virginia.

 

The VSCA establishes a statutory limit on liability of directors and officers of a corporation for damages assessed against them in a suit brought by or in the right of the corporation or brought by or on behalf of shareholders of the corporation and authorizes a corporation to specify a lower monetary limit on liability (including the elimination of liability for monetary damages) in the corporation’s articles of incorporation or bylaws; however, the liability of a director or officer will not be limited if such officer or director engaged in willful misconduct or a knowing violation of the criminal law or of any federal or state securities law. The Union articles of incorporation eliminate the personal liability of directors and officers to the Registrant or its shareholders for monetary damages to the full extent permitted by Virginia law.

Item 9. Undertakings

 

(a) The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:

 

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

 

(i) To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;

 

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

 

(iii) To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the Registration Statement or any material change to such information in this Registration Statement; provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in periodic reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement.

 

(2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

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

 

(b) The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the Registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that is incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(c) Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

Exhibit 5.1

 

 

 

 

 

February 1, 2019

 

Union Bankshares Corporation

1051 East Cary Street, Suite 1200

Richmond, Virginia 23219

 

Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

I am the Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of Union Bankshares Corporation, a Virginia corporation (the “Company”), and have acted as counsel to the Company in connection with the Company’s Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to Form S-4 on Form S-8 (the “Registration Statement”) filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 1, 2019, filed pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Registration Statement registers an aggregate of 448,750 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $1.33 per share (the “Shares”), issuable upon exercise or settlement of certain equity awards previously granted under the Access National Corporation 2017 Equity Compensation Plan (the “Access 2017 Plan”) and the Access National Corporation 2009 Stock Option Plan (together with the Access 2017 Plan, the “Access Plans”), each of which was assumed by the Company in connection with the Company’s acquisition of Access National Corporation, a Virginia corporation (“Access”), pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Reorganization, dated as of October 4, 2018, as amended on December 7, 2018 (as amended from time to time, the “Agreement”), by and between the Company and Access, which was consummated on February 1, 2019.

 

I have reviewed the Registration Statement, the Agreement, the Articles of Incorporation of the Company, the Bylaws of the Company, the resolutions of the Board of Directors of the Company relating to the Registration Statement and the offering and sale of the Shares, each as amended as of the date hereof, and such other corporate records, certificates and other documents, and such questions of law, as I have considered necessary for the purposes of this opinion. I have assumed that all signatures are genuine, that all documents submitted to me as originals are authentic and that all copies of such documents submitted to me conform to the originals. I have relied as to certain matters on information obtained from public officials, officers of the Company and other sources believed by me to be appropriate for purposes of this opinion.

 

Based upon the foregoing, I am of the opinion that the Shares have been duly authorized and, when issued and sold in the manner contemplated in the Access Plans and the Registration Statement, will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.

 

I am a member of the bar of the Commonwealth of Virginia. I do not express any opinion herein on any laws other than the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, applicable provisions of the Virginia Stock Corporation Act and the federal laws of the United States of America.

 

I do not find it necessary for the purposes of this opinion, and accordingly I do not purport to cover herein, the application of the securities or “Blue Sky” laws of the various states to the issuance and sale of the Shares.

 

 

 

  

My opinion is as of the date hereof and I have no responsibility to update this opinion for events and circumstances occurring after the date hereof or as to facts relating to prior events that are subsequently brought to my attention and I disavow any undertaking to advise you of any changes in law.

 

I hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as Exhibit 5.1 to the Registration Statement. I also hereby consent to the reference to my name under the heading “Interests of Named Experts and Counsel” in the Registration Statement. In giving such consent, I do not thereby admit that I am in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act.

 

 

  Very truly yours,

 

 

 

/s/ Rachael R. Lape
