[MISSING IMAGE: 397967052_lg_richmond-mutual.jpg]
(Proposed Holding Company for First Bank Richmond)
Up to 11,327,500 Shares of Common Stock
(Subject to increase to up to 13,026,625 shares)
Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, Inc., a newly formed Maryland corporation, is offering up to 11,327,500 shares of common stock for sale to the public at $10.00 per share on a best efforts basis in connection with the conversion and reorganization of First Bank Richmond from the mutual holding company form of organization, which we refer to in this document as the “reorganization.” When the reorganization is completed, all of the outstanding common stock of First Bank Richmond will be owned by the newly formed Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, Inc., and all of the outstanding common stock of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, Inc. will be owned by public stockholders. In addition to the shares that we will sell in the offering, we intend to contribute a total of  $6.25 million to a charitable foundation that we are establishing in connection with the reorganization, which contribution will consist of $1.25 million of cash and $5.0 million (500,000 shares) of common stock. Currently, there is no established trading market for our common stock. We expect that our common stock will be traded on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “RMBI” upon conclusion of the stock offering. We are an “emerging growth company” as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012.
The shares of common stock are first being offered in a subscription offering to eligible depositors and certain borrowers of First Bank Richmond and to First Bank Richmond’s tax-qualified employee benefit plans. Shares not purchased in the subscription offering may be offered for sale to the general public in a community offering, with a preference given to residents of the communities served by First Bank Richmond. Any shares of common stock not purchased in the subscription or community offerings may be offered for sale to the public in a syndicated community offering through a syndicate of broker-dealers managed by Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc., a Stifel company (“KBW”). The syndicated community offering may commence before the subscription and community offerings (including any extensions) have expired. However, shares purchased in the subscription offering or the community offering will not be issued until the completion of any syndicated community offering. The subscription, community and syndicated community offerings are sometimes collectively referred to as the “offering.”
We may sell up to 13,026,625 shares of common stock as a result of demand for the shares of common stock or changes in market conditions, without resoliciting subscribers. We must sell a minimum of 8,372,500 shares in order to complete the offering. KBW will use its best efforts to assist us in selling our common stock, but is not obligated to purchase any of the common stock that is being offered for sale. Subscribers will not pay any commissions to purchase shares of common stock in the offering.
The minimum order is 25 shares of common stock. Generally, no individual or individuals through a single account held jointly may purchase more than 30,000 shares of common stock, and no individual or other person, along with their associates and those with whom they are acting in concert, may purchase more than 40,000 shares of common stock.
The subscription and community offerings are expected to expire at 2:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on June 11, 2019. We may extend this expiration time and date, without notice to you, until July 26, 2019. Once submitted, stock orders are irrevocable unless the subscription and community offerings are terminated or extended, with regulatory approval, beyond July 26, 2019, or the number of shares of common stock offered for sale is increased to more than 13,026,625 shares or decreased to less than 8,372,500 shares. If the subscription and community offerings are extended beyond July 26, 2019, we will notify all subscribers and give them an opportunity to confirm, change or cancel their orders. If you do not respond to this notice, we will promptly return your funds with interest or cancel your deposit account withdrawal authorization. If the number of shares to be sold in the offerings is increased to more than 13,026,625 shares or decreased to less than 8,372,500 shares, we will resolicit subscribers, and all funds delivered to us to purchase shares of common stock in the subscription and community offerings will be returned promptly with interest. Funds received in the subscription and the community offerings will be held in a segregated account at First Bank Richmond and will earn interest at 0.24% per annum until completion or termination of the offering.
In addition, our officers, directors and employees may participate in the solicitation of offers to purchase common stock in reliance upon Rule 3a4-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. They will pay the same $10.00 per share offering price as paid by all other persons who purchase shares in the offering.

SUMMARY
The following summary explains material information in this prospectus, but it may not contain all of the information that is important to you. Before making an investment decision, you should read carefully this entire document, including the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto and the section entitled “Risk Factors.”
Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, Inc., a Delaware corporation, which is referred to in this document as “Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Delaware,” owns 100% of the outstanding shares of common stock of First Bank Richmond. Upon the completion of the reorganization Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Delaware will cease to exist, and First Bank Richmond will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, our newly formed Maryland corporation, which is hereafter referred to in this document as “Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland.” In certain circumstances, where appropriate, the terms “we, “us” and “our” refer collectively to (i) Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Delaware and First Bank Richmond with respect to discussions in this document involving matters occurring prior to completion of the reorganization and (ii) Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland and First Bank Richmond with respect to discussions in this document involving the offering and matters occurring post-reorganization, in each case unless the context indicates another meaning.
The Companies
Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, Inc.   Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, Inc., a Maryland corporation, was incorporated in February 2019. The offering of common stock by means of this prospectus is being made by Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland in connection with the reorganization of First Bank Richmond from the mutual holding company form of organization. Upon completion of the reorganization and offering, Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will become the bank holding company for First Bank Richmond by owning all of the outstanding shares of capital stock of First Bank Richmond, and will be regulated by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “Federal Reserve Board”) and the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions. Our corporate office is located at 31 North 9th Street, Richmond, Indiana, and our telephone number is (765) 962-2581.
To date, Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland has engaged in organizational activities only. Following the reorganization and offering, Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland’s primary business activity will relate to owning all of the outstanding shares of capital stock of First Bank Richmond. In the future, Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will be authorized to pursue other business activities permitted by applicable laws and regulations for bank holding companies, which may include the acquisition of banking and financial services companies. We have no plans for any mergers or acquisitions, or other diversification of the activities of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland at the present time.
Our cash flow will depend on earnings from the investment of the net proceeds received in the offering that we retain, and any dividends received from First Bank Richmond. Initially, Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will neither own nor lease any property, but will instead use the premises, equipment and furniture of First Bank Richmond. At the present time, we intend to employ only persons who are officers of First Bank Richmond to serve as officers of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland. We will also use the support staff of First Bank Richmond from time to time. These persons will not be separately compensated by Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland. Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland may hire additional employees, as appropriate, to the extent it expands its business in the future. The initial directors of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland consist of the current directors of First Bank Richmond. See “Management.”
First Bank Richmond.   First Bank Richmond is an Indiana state-chartered commercial bank headquartered in Richmond, Indiana. The bank was originally established in 1887 as an Indiana state-chartered mutual savings and loan association and in 1935 converted to a federal mutual savings and loan association operating under the name First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Richmond. In 1993, the bank converted to a state-chartered mutual savings bank and changed its name to First Bank Richmond, S.B. In 1998, the bank, in connection with its non-stock mutual holding company

reorganization, converted to a national bank charter operating as First Bank Richmond, National Association. In July 2007, Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Delaware, the bank’s current holding company, acquired Mutual Federal Savings Bank headquartered in Sidney, Ohio, which it operated independently as a separately chartered, wholly owned subsidiary of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Delaware until 2016 when Mutual Federal Savings Bank was combined with the bank through an internal merger transaction that consolidated both banks into a single, more efficient commercial bank charter. In 2017, the bank converted to an Indiana state-chartered commercial bank and changed its name to First Bank Richmond. Mutual Federal Savings Bank continues to operate in Ohio under the name Mutual Federal, a division of First Bank Richmond.
First Bank Richmond provides full banking services through its seven full- and one limited-service offices located in Cambridge City (1), Centerville (1), Richmond (5) and Shelbyville (1), Indiana, its five full service offices located in Piqua (2), Sidney (2) and Troy (1), Ohio, and its loan production office in Columbus, Ohio. Administrative, trust and wealth management services are conducted through First Bank Richmond’s Corporate Office/Financial Center located in Richmond, Indiana. As an Indiana-chartered commercial bank, First Bank Richmond is subject to regulation by the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (which we sometimes refer to herein as the “FDIC”). At December 31, 2018, on a consolidated basis, we had total assets of  $849.6 million, total deposits of  $620.6 million and stockholders’ equity of  $85.9 million.
First Bank Richmond generates commercial, mortgage and consumer loans and leases and receives deposits from customers located primarily in Wayne and Shelby Counties, in Indiana and Shelby, Miami and Franklin (no deposits) Counties, in Ohio. We sometimes refer to these counties as our primary market area. First Bank Richmond’s loans are generally secured by specific items of collateral including real property, consumer assets and business assets. Our leasing operation consists of direct investments in equipment that we lease (referred to as direct finance leases) to small businesses located throughout the United States. Our lease portfolio consists of various kinds of equipment, generally technology related, such as computer systems, medical equipment and general manufacturing, industrial, construction and transportation equipment. We seek leasing transactions where we believe the equipment leased is integral to the lessee’s business.
We also provide trust and wealth management services, including serving as executor and trustee under wills and deeds and as guardian and custodian of employee benefits, and manage private investment accounts for individuals and institutions. Total wealth management assets under management and administration were $126.0 million at December 31, 2018.
Our corporate offices are located at 31 North 9th Street, Richmond, Indiana, and our telephone number is (765) 962-2581. Our website addresses are www.firstbankrichmond.com and http://www.mutualbancorp.com. Information on these websites should not be considered a part of this prospectus.
Our Current Organizational Structure
In 1998, First Bank Richmond’s mutual predecessor reorganized into the mutual holding company form of organization by forming First Mutual of Richmond, Inc. (“First Mutual of Richmond-MHC”), a mutual holding company that has no stockholders and is controlled by its members. First Mutual of Richmond-MHC owns 100% of the outstanding shares of common stock of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Delaware. Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Delaware owns 100% of the outstanding shares of common stock of First Bank Richmond.
Pursuant to the terms of our plan of reorganization and stock offering, First Mutual of Richmond-MHC will convert from a mutual holding company to the stock holding company corporate structure. Upon the completion of the transaction, First Mutual of Richmond-MHC and Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Delaware will cease to exist, and First Bank Richmond will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland, our newly formed Maryland corporation.

First Mutual of Richmond-MHC owns all of the common stock of First Mutual of Richmond Statutory Trust (the “Trust”), which was formed to issue trust preferred securities to the public. All of the trust preferred securities issued by the Trust and outstanding following the reorganization will be redeemed with proceeds from the offering, after which the Trust will be dissolved.
After the reorganization and offering are completed, we will be organized as a fully public stock holding company, as follows:

Business Strategy
We are a community-oriented financial institution dedicated to serving the needs of customers in our primary market area. Our commitment is to offer a full array of consumer and commercial banking products and services to meet the needs of our customers. We offer mortgage lending products to qualified borrowers to give them the broadest access to home ownership in our markets. We offer commercial lending products and services tailored to complement their businesses. Our goal is to maintain asset quality while continuing to build our strong capital position while looking for growth opportunities in the markets we serve. To achieve these goals, we will focus on the following strategies:
Lending.   We believe that commercial lending offers an opportunity to enhance our profitability while managing credit, interest rate and operational risk. We seek quality commercial loan opportunities in our existing markets and purchase loan participations that complement our existing portfolios. We will continue to focus our efforts on our existing markets as well as to further develop the Columbus, Ohio market through our loan production office. We anticipate that the majority of our commercial and multi-family real estate and commercial construction loan originations will range in size from $1.0 million to $8.0 million, while the majority of our commercial and industrial loan originations will range in size from $250,000 to $1.5 million. At December 31, 2018, our commercial loan portfolio, which includes commercial and multi-family real estate loans, commercial and industrial loans and construction loans, totaled $399.9 million, or 60.5% of total loans and leases, with approximately $95.7 million of these loans, or 14.5% of our total loans and leases, located in the Columbus, Ohio market.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
A large portion of our commercial loan portfolio is unseasoned, meaning they were originated recently. Our limited experience with these borrowers does not provide us with a significant payment history pattern with which to judge future collectability. Further, these loans have not been subjected to unfavorable economic conditions. As a result, it is difficult to predict the future performance of this part of our loan portfolio. These loans may have delinquency or charge-off levels above our historical experience, which could adversely affect our future performance.
Deposit Services.   Deposits are our primary source of funds for lending and investment. We intend to continue to focus on increasing core deposits (which we define as all deposits except for certificates of deposit greater than $250,000 and brokered certificates of deposit) in our primary market area, with a particular emphasis on non-interest bearing deposits. We will continue to enhance our offering of retail deposit products to maintain and increase our market share, while continuing to build our product offering of commercial deposit products to strengthen our relationships with our business customers. Core deposits represented 75.0% of our total deposits as of December 31, 2018.
Balance Sheet Growth.   As a result of our efforts to build our management and infrastructure, we believe we are well-positioned to increase the size of our balance sheet without a proportional increase in overhead expense or operating risk. Accordingly, we intend to increase, on a managed basis, our assets and liabilities, particularly loans and deposits.
Asset Quality.   We believe that strong asset quality is a key to long-term financial success. Our strategy for credit risk management focuses on an experienced team of credit professionals, well-defined credit policies and procedures, appropriate loan underwriting criteria and active credit monitoring. Our non-performing loans as a percentage of total loans was 0.69% at December 31, 2018.
Capital Position.   Our policy has always been to protect the safety and soundness of First Bank Richmond through credit and operational risk management, balance sheet strength and sound operations. The end result of these activities has been a capital ratio in excess of the well-capitalized standards set by our regulators. We believe that maintaining a strong capital position safeguards the long-term interests of First Bank Richmond.
Interest Rate Risk Management.   Changes in interest rates are our primary market risk as our balance sheet is almost entirely comprised of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities. As such, fluctuations in interest rates have a significant impact not only upon our net income but also upon the cash flows related to those assets and liabilities and the market value of our assets and liabilities. In order to maintain what we believe to be acceptable levels of net interest income in varying interest rate environments, we actively manage our interest rate risk and assume a moderate amount of interest rate risk consistent with board policies.
Reasons for the Reorganization and Offering
Our primary reasons for reorganizing and raising additional capital through the offering are to:
Enhance our capital base to support continued growth on a prudent basis.   We intend to continue to grow our franchise, both organically and through strategic transactions as opportunities arise, on a prudent basis. While we currently exceed all regulatory capital requirements, the offering proceeds will strengthen our capital position and support our planned growth.
Offer our customers, employees and directors an equity ownership interest in Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland.   We believe that offering stock to our depositors will provide them with an economic interest in our future success should they decide to invest. The offering will also further enable us to attract and retain directors, management and employees through various stock-based benefit plans, including an employee stock ownership plan and one or more equity incentive plans.
Support our local communities through establishing and funding a charitable foundation.   The contribution to the charitable foundation will complement our existing charitable activities, and should enable the communities that we serve to share in our long-term growth.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Facilitate future mergers and acquisitions, if available, on a prudent basis.   Although we do not currently have any understandings or agreements regarding any specific transactions, the additional capital raised in the offering may be used to finance mergers with, and acquisitions of, other financial institutions, asset portfolios and branch offices when and if attractive opportunities arise.
Terms of the Offering
We are offering between 8,372,500 and 11,327,500 shares of common stock of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland to eligible depositors and certain borrowers of First Bank Richmond and to our tax-qualified employee benefit plans, and, to the extent shares remain available, to the general public in a community offering. If necessary, we will also offer shares to the general public in a syndicated community offering. The number of shares of common stock to be sold may be increased to up to 13,026,625 shares as a result of demand for the shares of common stock in the offering or changes in market conditions. Unless the number of shares of common stock to be offered is increased to more than 13,026,625 shares or decreased to fewer than 8,372,500 shares, or the subscription and community offerings are extended beyond July 26, 2019, subscribers will not have the opportunity to change or cancel their stock orders once submitted. If the subscription and community offerings are extended past July 26, 2019, all subscribers will be notified and given an opportunity to confirm, change or cancel their orders. If you do not respond to this notice, we will cancel your order and promptly return your funds with interest at 0.24% per annum or cancel your deposit account withdrawal authorization. If the number of shares to be sold is increased to more than 13,026,625 shares or decreased to less than 8,372,500 shares, all subscribers’ stock orders will be canceled, all withdrawal authorizations will be canceled, and all funds delivered to us to purchase shares of common stock in the subscription and community offerings will be returned promptly with interest at the same rate. We will then resolicit subscribers, giving them an opportunity to place new orders for a period of time. No shares purchased in the subscription offering and community offering will be issued until the completion of any syndicated community offering.
Subscription priorities have been established for the allocation of common stock to the extent the subscription offering is oversubscribed. See “The Reorganization and Offering — Subscription Offering and Subscription Rights” for a description of allocation procedures in the event of an oversubscription.
The purchase price of each share of common stock offered for sale in the offering is $10.00. All investors will pay the same purchase price per share, regardless of whether the shares are purchased in the subscription offering, the community offering or the syndicated community offering. Investors will not be charged a commission to purchase shares of common stock in the offering. KBW, our marketing agent in the subscription and community offerings, will use its best efforts to assist us in selling shares of our common stock in the subscription and community offerings but is not obligated to purchase any shares of common stock in the subscription and community offerings.
How We Determined the Offering Range and the $10.00 Price Per Share
The amount of common stock we are offering for sale is based on an independent appraisal of the estimated market value of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland, assuming the offering has been completed and the charitable foundation has been established and the contribution of shares of common stock and cash to it has been made. RP Financial, LC., our independent appraiser, has estimated that, at February 8, 2019, and assuming we were undertaking the offering, this market value, including the shares to be issued to the charitable foundation, was $103.5 million. Based on applicable regulations, this market value forms the midpoint of a valuation range with a minimum of  $88.7 million and a maximum of $118.3 million. Based on this valuation range and the offering price of  $10.00 per share, Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland is offering for sale a range of shares of common stock, from 8,372,500 shares to 11,327,500 shares. The $10.00 per share price was selected primarily because it is the price most commonly used in mutual-to-stock conversion transactions undertaken by financial institutions. If demand for shares or market conditions warrant, the appraisal can be increased by 15%, which would result in an appraised value of  $135.3 million, and we may sell up to 13,026,625 shares of common stock.
The appraisal is based in part on our financial condition and results of operations, the pro forma effect of the additional capital raised by the sale of shares of common stock in the offering, and an analysis of a peer group of 10 publicly traded savings and loan holding companies that RP Financial considers

The independent appraisal will be updated before we complete the reorganization and offering. If the pro forma market value of the common stock at that time is either below $88.7 million or above $135.3 million, then Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland, after consulting with the Federal Reserve Board, may terminate the plan of reorganization and return all funds promptly with interest; extend or hold a new subscription or community offering, or both; establish a new offering range and commence a resolicitation of subscribers; or take such other actions as may be permitted by the Federal Reserve Board and the Securities and Exchange Commission. If we resolicit subscribers in this instance, then all funds delivered to us to purchase shares of common stock in the subscription and community offerings will be returned promptly with interest.
Two measures investors use to analyze an issuer’s stock are the ratio of the offering price to the issuer’s tangible book value and the ratio of the offering price to the issuer’s annual net income. RP Financial considered these ratios, among other factors, in preparing its independent appraisal. Tangible book value is the same as total stockholders’ equity less any intangible assets, and represents the difference between the issuer’s assets and liabilities.
The following table presents a summary of selected pricing ratios for Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland (on a pro forma basis) at and for the 12-months ended December 31, 2018, and for the peer group companies based on earnings and other information at and for the 12-months ended December 31, 2018, with stock prices at February 8, 2019, as reflected in the appraisal report. Compared to the average pricing of the peer group, our pro forma pricing ratios at the midpoint of the offering range indicated a discount of 42.4% on a price-to-book value basis, a discount of 47.1% on a price-to-tangible book value basis and a discount of 6.5% on a price-to-earnings basis.

Price-to-earnings multiples calculated by RP Financial are based on reported earnings, and assumes all shares are outstanding, including shares owned by the ESOP, for purposes of earnings per share calculations. These ratios are different than those presented in “Pro Forma Data.”
The pro forma calculations for Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland include the following assumptions:

A number of shares equal to 8% of the shares sold in the offering and contributed to the charitable foundation are purchased by the employee stock ownership plan, with the expense to be amortized over 20 years;

A number of shares equal to 4% of the shares sold in the offering and contributed to the charitable foundation are purchased by a stock-based benefit plan, with the expense to be amortized over five years; and

A number of options equal to 10% of the shares sold in the offering and contributed to the charitable foundation are granted under a stock-based benefit plan, with option expense of $2.95 per option amortized over five years; and

offering expenses would equal 2.5% of the offering amount at the midpoint of the offering range.
The independent appraisal does not indicate market value. Do not assume or expect that Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland’s valuation as indicated above means that the common stock will trade at or above the $10.00 purchase price after the reorganization and offering. Furthermore, the pricing ratios presented in the appraisal were used by RP Financial to estimate our pro forma appraised value for regulatory purposes and not to compare the relative value of shares of our common stock with the value of the capital stock of the peer group. The value of the capital stock of a particular company may be affected by a number of factors such as financial performance, asset size and market location.
For a more complete discussion of the amount of common stock we are offering for sale and the independent appraisal, see “The Reorganization and Offering — Stock Pricing and Number of Shares to be Issued.”
How We Intend to Use the Proceeds from the Offering
We intend to (i) invest at least 50% of the net proceeds from the offering in First Bank Richmond, (ii) fund the loan to our employee stock ownership plan to finance its purchase of shares of common stock in the offering, (iii) contribute $1.25 million in cash to the charitable foundation, (iv) use approximately $5.0 million to redeem outstanding subordinated debentures and related trust preferred securities issued by First Mutual of Richmond-MHC which will be assumed by Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland in connection with the reorganization and (v) retain the remainder of the net proceeds from the offering at Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland. Therefore, assuming we sell 11,327,500 shares of common stock in the offering at the maximum of the offering range, resulting in net proceeds of  $110.6 million, we intend to invest $55.3 million in First Bank Richmond, lend $9.5 million to our employee stock ownership plan to fund its purchase of shares of common stock (which may include, subject to market conditions, open market purchases after the completion of the reorganization and offering if the employee stock ownership plan is unable to purchase its shares in the subscription offering due to an oversubscription by our eligible account holders), use $1.25 million of the net proceeds to fund the cash contribution to the charitable foundation, use approximately $5.0 million to redeem outstanding subordinated debentures, and retain the remaining $39.6 million of the net proceeds at Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland expects to initially invest the net proceeds it retains from the offering in interest-earning deposits and securities issued by the U.S. government and its agencies or government sponsored enterprises, and as otherwise permitted under our investment policy. Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland may use a portion of the net proceeds to repurchase shares of our common stock in the future, although we are generally not permitted to do so during the first year following our reorganization, and may use a portion of the net proceeds to finance the possible acquisition of other financial institutions or other financial service businesses. We may also use the net proceeds for other general corporate purposes.
First Bank Richmond intends to use approximately $9.8 million, after tax, of the funds it receives from Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland to terminate its participation in the Pentegra Defined Benefit Plan for Financial Institutions (the “Pentegra DB Plan”), an industry-wide, tax-qualified defined-benefit pension plan, and generally intends to use the remaining proceeds it receives to originate loans. As a result of the termination expense associated with the Pentegra DB Plan and based on our historical earnings, we expect to report a net loss for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019. Funds used to pay the termination expense related to the Pentegra DB Plan may be higher or lower depending on a number of factors, including but not limited to the interest rate environment and the valuation of plan assets. First Bank Richmond may also purchase securities as permitted under our investment policy, expand its banking franchise organically through de novo branching, or expand through acquisitions of other financial institutions, branch offices, or other financial service businesses. It may also use the proceeds it receives to support new loan, deposit or other financial products and services, and for general corporate purposes. Neither First Bank Richmond nor Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland has any plans or agreements for any specific acquisition transactions at this time.
See “How We Intend to Use the Proceeds from the Offering.”
Persons Who May Order Stock in the Offerings
We are offering the shares of common stock of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland in a “subscription offering” in the following descending order of priority:
(1)
To depositors who had accounts at First Bank Richmond with aggregate balances of at least $50 at the close of business on December 31, 2017;
(2)
To our tax-qualified employee benefit plans (including First Bank Richmond’s employee stock ownership plan, but excluding our 401(k) plan) which may subscribe for, in the aggregate, up to 10% of the shares of common stock sold in the offering and contributed to the charitable foundation. We expect our employee stock ownership plan to purchase 8% of the shares of common stock sold in the offering and contributed to the charitable foundation;
(3)
To depositors who had accounts at First Bank Richmond with aggregate balances of at least $50 at the close of business on March 31, 2019; and
(4)
depositors of First Bank Richmond at the close of business on May 1, 2019 and borrowers of First Bank Richmond as of October 16, 1997 whose borrowings remained outstanding at the close of business on May 1, 2019, to the extent not already included in a prior category.
Shares of common stock not purchased in the subscription offering will be offered for sale to the general public in a community offering, with a preference given first to natural persons (including trusts of natural persons) residing in Wayne, Fayette, Henry, Randolph, Shelby and Union counties, Indiana and Darke, Franklin, Miami, Preble and Shelby counties, Ohio. The community offering may commence concurrently with, during or promptly after the subscription offering. The community offering must be completed within 45 days of the end of the subscription offering, unless extended with Federal Reserve Board approval.
In addition, any shares of our common stock not purchased in the subscription offering or community offering are expected to be offered for sale to the general public in a syndicated community offering through a syndicate of selected dealers. We may begin the syndicated community offering at any time following the commencement of the subscription offering. The syndicated community offering will be managed by

TABLE OF CONTENTS
KBW acting as our agent. In such capacity, KBW may form a syndicate of other broker-dealers. Neither KBW nor any registered broker-dealer will have any obligation to take or purchase any shares of the common stock in the syndicated community offering; however, KBW has agreed to use its best efforts in the sale of shares in any syndicated community offering. See “The Reorganization and Offering — Syndicated Community Offering.”
We have the right to accept or reject, in our sole discretion, any orders received in the community offering or the syndicated community offering.
To ensure proper allocation of stock, each eligible account holder must list on his or her stock order form all accounts in which he or she had an ownership interest at December 31, 2017, March 31, 2019 or May 1, 2019, as applicable. Failure to list an account or providing incorrect information could result in the loss of all or part of a subscriber’s stock allocation. We will attempt to identify your ownership in all accounts, but cannot guarantee we will identify all accounts in which you had an ownership interest. Our interpretations of the terms and conditions of the stock issuance plan and of the acceptability of the order forms will be final.
If we receive orders for more shares than we are offering, we may not be able to fully or partially fill your order. Shares of common stock will be allocated first to categories in the subscription offering in accordance with our plan of reorganization. A detailed description of share allocation procedures can be found in the section entitled “The Reorganization and Offering — Subscription Offering and Subscription Rights.”
Limits on the Amount of Common Stock You May Purchase
The minimum number of shares of common stock that may be purchased is 25 shares.
Generally, no individual, or individuals through a single account held jointly, may purchase more than 30,000 shares ($300,000) of common stock. If any of the following persons purchase shares of common stock, their purchases when combined with your purchases cannot exceed 40,000 shares ($400,000) of common stock:

Any person who is related by blood or marriage to you and who either lives in your home or who is a director or officer of First Bank Richmond;

Companies or other entities in which you are an officer or partner or have a 10% or greater beneficial ownership interest;

Trusts or other estates in which you have a substantial beneficial interest or as to which you serve as a trustee or in another fiduciary capacity; and

Any other persons who may be your associates or persons acting in concert with you.
Persons having the same address and persons exercising subscription rights through qualifying accounts registered to the same address will be subject to the overall purchase limitation of 40,000 shares ($400,000). We have the right to determine, in our sole discretion, whether prospective purchasers are associates or acting in concert.
Subject to regulatory approval, we may increase or decrease the purchase limitations in the offering at any time. A detailed discussion of the limitations on purchases of common stock by an individual and persons acting in concert is set forth under the caption “The Reorganization and Offering — Additional Limitations on Common Stock Purchases.”
We expect that the employee stock ownership plan will purchase 8.0% of our outstanding shares (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation). Subject to the approval of the Federal Reserve Board, the employee stock ownership plan may purchase some or all of these shares in the open market following the completion of the offering. Our employee stock ownership plan purchases will range from 709,800 shares to 1,082,130 shares of common stock, respectively, at the minimum and adjusted maximum of the offering range.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
How You May Purchase Shares of Common Stock in the Subscription and Community Offering
In the subscription offering and the community offering, you may pay for your shares only by:
(i)
personal check, bank check or money order payable to Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, Inc. (cash and third-party checks will not be accepted); or
(ii)
authorizing us to withdraw available funds (without any early withdrawal penalty) from the types of deposit account(s) maintained with First Bank Richmond designated on the stock order form.
First Bank Richmond is not permitted to knowingly lend funds for the purpose of purchasing shares of common stock in the offering. You may not pay by wire transfer, use a check drawn on a First Bank Richmond line of credit, or use a third-party check to pay for shares of common stock. Please do not submit cash.
You can subscribe for shares of common stock in the offering by delivering a signed and completed original stock order form, together with full payment, before the expiration date of the subscription offering. You may submit your stock order form in one of three ways: by mail, using the reply envelope provided; by overnight courier to the address indicated on the stock order form; or by bringing your stock order form and payment to First Bank Richmond’s office located at 20 North 9th Street, Richmond, Indiana. Please do not mail stock order forms to First Bank Richmond. Once submitted, your order is irrevocable. We do not intend to accept incomplete stock order forms, unsigned stock order forms, or copies or facsimiles of stock order forms. For orders paid for by check or money order, the funds must be available in the account. Funds received prior to the completion of the offering will be held in a segregated account at First Bank Richmond. Subscription funds will earn interest at 0.24%. If the offering is terminated, we will promptly return your subscription funds with interest.
Withdrawals from certificate of deposit accounts at First Bank Richmond for the purpose of purchasing common stock in the offering may be made without incurring an early withdrawal penalty. All funds authorized for withdrawal from deposit accounts with First Bank Richmond must be in the deposit accounts at the time the stock order form is received; no credit to purchase shares will be given for future interest to be earned on the funds in your deposit account or submitted for payment for the shares. However, funds will not be withdrawn from the accounts until the offering is completed and will continue to earn interest at the applicable deposit account rate until the completion of the offering. A hold will be placed on those funds when your stock order is received, making the designated funds unavailable to you. If a withdrawal results in a certificate of deposit account with a balance less than the applicable minimum balance requirement, the certificate of deposit will be canceled at the time of withdrawal without penalty, and the remaining balance will earn interest at 0.24% thereafter, until such funds are withdrawn. After we receive an order, the order cannot be revoked or changed.
By signing the stock order form, you are acknowledging receipt of this prospectus and that the shares of our common stock are not deposits or savings accounts that are federally insured or otherwise guaranteed by First Bank Richmond, the FDIC or any other government agency.
Using Retirement Account Funds to Purchase Shares of Common Stock in the Subscription and Community Offerings
You may be able to subscribe for shares of common stock using funds in your IRA or other retirement account. If you wish to use some or all of the funds in your IRA or other retirement account held at First Bank Richmond, the applicable funds must be transferred to an IRA, or other retirement account that can hold common stock, maintained by an independent custodian or trustee, such as a brokerage firm, before you place your stock order. If you do not have such an account, you will need to establish one. A one-time and/or annual administrative fee may be payable to the independent custodian or trustee. Because individual circumstances differ, and the processing of retirement fund orders takes additional time, we recommend that you contact our Stock Information Center promptly, preferably at least two weeks before the June 11, 2019 offering deadline, for assistance with purchases using funds in your IRA or other retirement account held at First Bank Richmond or elsewhere. Whether you may use such funds for the
10

TABLE OF CONTENTS
purchase of shares in the offering may depend on timing constraints and, possibly, limitations imposed by the institution where the funds are held. For a complete description of how to use IRA funds to purchase shares in the offering, see “The Reorganization and Offering — Using Retirement Account Funds to Purchase Shares.”
You May Not Sell or Transfer Your Subscription Rights
Applicable regulations prohibit you from selling, giving, or otherwise transferring your subscription rights. If you order shares of common stock in the subscription offering, you will be required to state that you are purchasing the shares of common stock for yourself and that you have no agreement or understanding to sell or transfer your subscription rights. We intend to take legal action, including reporting persons to federal or state regulatory agencies, against anyone who we believe has sold or given away his or her subscription rights. We will not accept your order if we have reason to believe that you have sold or transferred your subscription rights. On the stock order form, you cannot add the name(s) of person who do not have subscription rights or who qualify only in a lower purchase priority than you do. Doing so may jeopardize your subscription rights. In addition, the stock order form requires that you list all accounts, giving all names on each account and the account number at the applicable eligibility record date. Your failure to provide this information, or providing incomplete or incorrect information, may result in a loss of part or all of your share allocation, if there is an oversubscription. Eligible subscribers who enter into agreements to allow ineligible investors to participate in the subscription offering may be violating federal and state law and may be subject to civil enforcement actions or criminal prosecution.
Deadline for Orders of Common Stock
The deadline for submitting orders to purchase shares of the common stock in the subscription and community offerings is 2:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on June 11, 2019, unless we extend this deadline. If you wish to purchase shares of common stock, your properly completed and signed original stock order form, together with full payment for the shares, must be received (not postmarked) by this time. Orders received after 2:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on June 11, 2019 will be rejected unless the offering is extended.
Although we will make reasonable attempts to provide a prospectus and offering materials to holders of subscription rights, the subscription offering and all subscription rights will expire at 2:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on June 11, 2019, whether or not we have been able to locate each person entitled to subscription rights.
See “The Reorganization and Offering — Offering Deadline” for a complete description of the deadline for purchasing shares in the offering.
Once Submitted, Your Stock Purchase Order May Not Be Revoked Except Under Certain Circumstances
Funds that you use to purchase shares of our common stock in the offering will be held in a segregated account until the termination or completion of the offering, including any extension of the expiration date. Because completion of the reorganization and offering is subject to the receipt of all required regulatory approvals, including an update of the independent appraisal, among other factors, there may be one or more delays in the completion of the reorganization. Any orders that you submit to purchase shares of our common stock in the offering are irrevocable, and you will not have access to subscription funds unless the offering is terminated, or extended beyond July 26, 2019, or the number of shares to be sold in the offering is increased to more than 13,026,625 shares or decreased to fewer than 8,372,500 shares.
Termination of the Offering
The subscription offering will expire at 2:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on June 11, 2019. We expect that the community offering, if one is conducted, would expire at the same time. We may extend this expiration date without notice to you until July 26, 2019, or such later date as the applicable regulators may approve. If the offerings are extended beyond July 26, 2019, we will be required to resolicit subscriptions before proceeding with the offering. In such event, all subscribers will be afforded the opportunity to confirm, cancel or change their orders. If you choose to cancel your order or you do not respond to the resolicitation notice,
11

TABLE OF CONTENTS
your funds will be promptly returned to you with interest and deposit account withdrawal authorizations will be canceled. All further extensions, in the aggregate, may not last beyond June 19, 2021, which is two years after the special meeting of members of First Mutual of Richmond-MHC to be held on June 19, 2019 to vote on the plan of reorganization.
Steps We May Take If We Do Not Receive Orders for the Minimum Number of Shares
If we do not receive orders for at least 8,372,500 shares of common stock, we may take several steps in order to sell the minimum number of shares of common stock in the offering range. Specifically, we may (a) increase the purchase limitations, (b) seek regulatory approval to extend the offering beyond the July 26, 2019 expiration date, and/or (c) reduce the valuation and offering range, provided that any such extension or reduction will require us to resolicit subscriptions received in the offering and provide subscribers with the opportunity to increase, decrease or cancel their subscriptions. If the offering is extended beyond July 26, 2019, subscribers will have the right to confirm, cancel or change their orders. If the number of shares to be sold in the offering is increased to more than 13,026,625 shares or decreased to less than 8,372,500 shares, we will resolicit subscribers, and all funds delivered to us to purchase shares of common stock in the subscription and community offerings will be returned promptly with interest.
Market for the Common Stock
We have never issued capital stock and there is no established market for our common stock. We expect that our common stock will be traded on the on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “RMBI” upon conclusion of the offering. See “Market for the Common Stock.”
Our Dividend Policy
Following completion of the reorganization and offering, our board of directors will have the authority to declare dividends on our shares of common stock, subject to statutory and regulatory requirements. We currently intend to pay quarterly cash dividends but have not determined the amount or when payment would start. The payment and amount of any dividends will depend upon a number of factors, including the following: regulatory capital requirements; our financial condition and results of operations; our other uses of funds for the long-term value of stockholders; tax considerations; statutory and regulatory limitations; and general economic conditions. See “Our Policy Regarding Dividends” in this prospectus for additional information regarding our dividend policy.
Possible Change in the Offering Range
RP Financial will update its appraisal before we complete the offering. If, as a result of demand for the shares or changes in market conditions, RP Financial determines that our pro forma market value has increased, we may sell up to 13,026,625 shares in the offering without further notice to you. If our pro forma market value at that time is either below $88.7 million or above $135.3 million, then, after consulting with the Federal Reserve Board, we may:

terminate the offering, cancel deposit account withdrawal authorizations and promptly return all funds received in the offering with interest at 0.24%;

set a new offering range; or

take such other actions as may be permitted by the Federal Reserve Board, the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) and the Securities and Exchange Commission.
If we set a new offering range, we will promptly return funds, with interest at 0.24% for funds received in the offering, cancel deposit account withdrawal authorizations and commence a resolicitation. In connection with the resolicitation, we will notify subscribers of their right to place a new stock order for a specified period of time.
Possible Termination of the Offering
We may terminate the offering at any time prior to the special meeting of members of First Mutual of Richmond-MHC that is being called to vote on the reorganization and offering, and at any time after
12

TABLE OF CONTENTS
member approval with applicable regulatory approval. If we terminate the offering, we will promptly return your funds, with interest at 0.24%, and we will cancel deposit account withdrawal authorizations.
Our Officers, Directors and Employees Will Receive Additional Benefits and Compensation After the Reorganization and Offering
In connection with the reorganization, we are establishing an employee stock ownership plan, and, subject to stockholder approval, we intend to implement a stock-based benefit plan that will provide for grants of stock options and restricted stock.
Employee Stock Ownership Plan.    The boards of directors of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland and First Bank Richmond have adopted an employee stock ownership plan, which will award shares of our common stock to all eligible employees primarily based on their compensation. We expect the employee stock ownership plan to purchase up to 8.0% of the shares of common stock sold in the offering (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation) from the proceeds of a loan to be made by Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland to the plan. If market conditions warrant, in the judgment of its trustees and with the approved of the Federal Reserve Board, the employee stock ownership plan may elect to purchase shares in the open market following the completion of the reorganization to the extent its subscription order is not filled in the offering.
Stock-Based Benefit Plan.   In addition to shares purchased by the employee stock ownership plan, we intend to adopt a stock-based benefit plan. The plan will be designed to attract and retain qualified personnel in key positions and provide directors, officers and key employees with an ownership interest in Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland, which will be an incentive to contribute to our success and will reward key employees for their performance. The number of options and shares of restricted common stock awarded under a stock-based benefit plan may not exceed 10.0% and 4.0%, respectively, of the shares of common stock sold in the offering (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation), provided that if First Bank Richmond’s tangible capital at the time of adoption of the stock-based benefit plan is less than 10% of its assets, then the amount of shares of restricted common stock may not exceed 3.0% of our outstanding shares. If a stock-based benefit plan is adopted more than 12 months after the completion of the offering, it would not be subject to the percentage limitations set forth above.
Under applicable regulations, a stock-based benefit plan cannot be established sooner than six months after the offering, and if adopted within one year after the offering, the plan must be approved by a majority of the votes eligible to be cast by our stockholders. If a stock-based benefit plan is established more than one year after the offering, it must be approved by a majority of votes cast by our stockholders.
The following additional restrictions would apply to our stock-based benefit plan only if such plan is adopted within one year after completion of the offering:

non-employee directors in the aggregate may not receive more than 30% of the options and shares of restricted common stock authorized under the plan;

no non-employee director may receive more than 5% of the options and shares of restricted common stock authorized under the plan;

no individual may receive more than 25% of the options and shares of restricted common stock authorized under the plan;

options and shares of restricted common stock may not vest more rapidly than 20% per year, beginning on the first anniversary of stockholder approval of the plan; and

accelerated vesting is not permitted except for death, disability or upon a change in control of First Bank Richmond or Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland.
We have not determined whether we will present a stock-based benefit plan for stockholder approval prior to or more than 12 months after the completion of the offering. In the event federal regulators change their regulations or policies regarding stock-based benefit plans, including any regulations or policies restricting the size of awards and vesting of benefits as described above, the restrictions described above may not be applicable.
13

TABLE OF CONTENTS
The shares needed for our stock-based benefit plan may be obtained either by issuing additional shares of common stock from authorized but unissued shares or through stock repurchases.
Equity Plan Expenses.   The implementation of an employee stock ownership plan and a stock-based benefit plan will increase our future compensation costs, thereby reducing our earnings. For example, we will be required to recognize an expense each year under our employee stock ownership plan equal to the fair market value of the shares committed to be released for that year to the participating employees. Similarly, if we issue restricted stock awards under a stock-based benefit plan, we would be required to recognize an expense as the shares vest equal to their fair market value on the grant date. Finally, if we issue stock options, we would be required to recognize an expense as the options vest, equal to their estimated value on the grant date. See “Risk Factors — Risks Related to the Offering — Our stock-based and other benefit plans will increase our costs, which will reduce our net income” and “Management — Existing and Future Benefit Plans and Agreements.”
Benefits to Management.   The following table summarizes the stock benefits that our officers, directors and employees may receive following the reorganization and offering, at the adjusted maximum of the offering range and assuming that our employee stock ownership plan purchases 8.0% of the total shares of common stock sold in the offering (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation) and that we implement a stock-based benefit plan granting options to purchase 10.0% of the total shares of common stock sold in the offering (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation) and awarding shares of restricted common stock equal to 4.0% of the total shares of common stock sold in the offering (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation).

The fair value of stock options has been estimated at $2.95 per option using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: a grant-date share price and option exercise price of $10.00; no dividend yield; expected option life of 10 years; risk free interest rate of 2.69%; and a volatility rate of 13.53% based on an index of publicly traded financial institutions.
The actual value of the shares of restricted common stock awarded under the stock-based benefit plan would be based on the price of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland’s common stock at the time the shares are awarded. The following table presents the total value of all shares of restricted common stock to be available for award and issuance under the stock-based benefit plan, assuming receipt of stockholder approval and that the shares are awarded in a range of market prices from $8.00 per share to $14.00 per share.

Restrictions on the Acquisition of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland and First Bank Richmond
Federal and state regulations, as well as provisions contained in the articles of incorporation of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland, restrict the ability of any person, firm or entity to acquire Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland or a controlling interest in its capital stock. These restrictions include the requirement that a potential acquirer of common stock obtain the prior approval of the Federal Reserve Board before acquiring in excess of 10% of the voting stock of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland, as well as a provision in Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland’s articles of incorporation that generally provides that in no event will any person who beneficially owns more than 10% of the then-outstanding shares of common stock of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland, be entitled or permitted to vote any of the shares of common stock held in excess of the 10% limit. See “Risk Factors — Risks Related to the Offering — Various factors may make takeover attempts more difficult to achieve.”
Proposed Stock Purchases by Management
Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland’s directors and executive officers and their associates are expected to purchase, for investment purposes, approximately 225,100 shares ($2,251,000) of common stock in the offering, which represents 2.5% of the shares of common stock to be issued in the offering (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation) at the minimum of the offering range. If more shares are sold in the offering, then officers and directors will own a lesser percentage of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland. Like all of our eligible subscribers, our directors and executive officers and their associates have subscription rights based on their deposits and, in the event of an oversubscription, their orders will be subject to the allocation provisions set forth in our plan of reorganization. Directors and executive officers will pay the same $10.00 per share price paid by all other persons who purchase shares in the offering. These shares will be counted in determining whether the minimum of the offering range is reached.
The plan of reorganization provides that the aggregate number of shares acquired in the offering by our directors and executive officers (and their associates) may not exceed 25% of the shares of common stock sold in the offering, except with the approval of federal regulators. We may seek approval from the federal regulators to allow purchases by our directors and executive officers (and their associates) to exceed the 25% limit to the extent needed to enable us to sell the minimum number of shares of common stock in the offering range.
These proposed purchases of common stock by our directors and executive officers (2.5% of the aggregate shares sold in the offering and contributed to the charitable foundation at the minimum of the offering range, together with the purchase by the employee stock ownership plan (8.0% of the aggregate shares sold in the offering and contributed to the charitable foundation), as well as the potential acquisition
15

TABLE OF CONTENTS
of common stock through the proposed equity incentive plan (an amount equal to 14% of the aggregate shares sold in the offering and contributed to the charitable foundation) will result in ownership by insiders of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland of 24.5% of the total shares sold in the offering (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation) at the minimum of the offering range. As a result, it could be more difficult to obtain majority support for stockholder proposals opposed by the board and management. See “Risk Factors — Risks Related to This Offering — Various factors make takeover attempts more difficult to achieve.
Conditions to Completing the Reorganization and Offering
We cannot complete the reorganization and offering unless:

we sell at least 8,372,500 shares, the minimum of the offering range;

the members of First Mutual of Richmond-MHC vote to approve the reorganization and offering; and

we receive final approval from the Federal Reserve Board to complete the reorganization and offering, as well as any additional required approvals from the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions.
Federal Reserve Board and Indiana Department of Financial Institutions approval do not constitute a recommendation or endorsement of an investment in our stock.
Delivery of Prospectus
To ensure that each person receives a prospectus at least 48 hours before the deadline for orders for common stock, we may not mail prospectuses any later than five days prior to such date or hand-deliver prospectuses later than two days prior to that date. Stock order forms may only be delivered if accompanied or preceded by a prospectus. We are not obligated to deliver a prospectus or stock order form by means other than U.S. mail.
We will make reasonable attempts to provide a prospectus and offering materials to holders of subscription rights. The subscription offering and all subscription rights will expire at 2:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on June 11, 2019, whether or not we have been able to locate each person entitled to subscription rights.
Our Contribution of Cash and Shares of Common Stock to the Charitable Foundation
To further our commitment to our local community, we intend to establish and fund a charitable foundation as part of the reorganization and offering. Assuming we receive member approval, we intend to contribute a total of  $6.25 million to the charitable foundation, consisting of  $1.25 million of cash and $5.0 million (500,000 shares) of common stock (with the contribution of common stock representing 6.0% and 3.8% of the shares of our common stock at the minimum and adjusted maximum of the offering range, respectively).
The charitable foundation will be dedicated exclusively to supporting charitable causes and community development activities in the communities in which we operate. The contribution of common stock and cash to the charitable foundation will:

with respect to the contribution of shares of common stock, dilute the voting interests of purchasers of shares of our common stock in the offering; and

result in an expense, and a reduction in capital, during the quarter in which the contribution is made, equal to the full amount of the contribution to the charitable foundation, which we expect to be offset in part by a corresponding tax benefit.
The amount of common stock that we would offer for sale would be greater if the offering were to be completed without the establishment and funding of the charitable foundation. For a further discussion of the financial impact of the charitable foundation, including its effect on those who purchase shares in the offering, see “Risk Factors — Risks Related to the Charitable Foundation — The contribution to the

charitable foundation will dilute your ownership interest and adversely affect net income in 2019”, “Risk Factors — Risks Related to the Charitable Foundation — Our contribution to the charitable foundation may not be tax deductible, which could reduce our profits.” “Comparison of Valuation and Pro Forma Information With and Without the Charitable Foundation” and “First Bank Richmond, Inc. Community Foundation.”
Delivery of Shares of Common Stock
All shares of common stock sold will be issued in book entry form. Stock certificates will not be issued. A statement reflecting ownership of shares of common stock issued in the subscription and community offerings will be mailed by our transfer agent to the persons entitled thereto at the registration address noted by them on their stock order forms as soon as practicable following consummation of the offering. Shares of common stock sold in the syndicated community offering may be delivered electronically through the services of The Depository Trust Company, subject to any necessary regulatory approval. We expect trading in the stock to begin on the day of completion of the offering or the next business day. Until a statement reflecting ownership of shares of common stock is available and delivered to purchasers, purchasers might not be able to sell the shares of common stock that they purchased, even though the common stock will have begun trading. Your ability to sell your shares of common stock before receiving your statement will depend on arrangements you may make with a brokerage firm.
Tax Consequences
First Bank Richmond and Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland have received an opinion of counsel, Silver, Freedman, Taff  & Tiernan LLP, regarding the material federal income tax consequences of the reorganization, including an opinion that it is more likely than not that the fair market value of the nontransferable subscription rights to purchase the common stock will be zero and, accordingly, no gain or loss will be recognized by members upon the distribution to them of the nontransferable subscription rights to purchase the common stock and no taxable income will be realized by members as a result of the exercise of the nontransferable subscription rights. First Bank Richmond and Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland have also received an opinion of BKD LLP regarding the material Indiana state tax consequences of the reorganization. As a general matter, the reorganization will not be a taxable transaction for purposes of federal or state income taxes to First Bank Richmond, Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland or persons eligible to subscribe in the subscription offering. See the section of this prospectus entitled “Taxation” for additional information regarding taxes.
Emerging Growth Company Status
We qualify as an “emerging growth company” under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”). For as long as we are an emerging growth company, we may choose to take advantage of exemptions from various reporting requirements applicable to other public companies but not to emerging growth companies. See “Risk Factors — Risks Related to the Offering — We are an emerging growth company, and any decision on our part to comply only with certain reduced reporting and disclosure requirements applicable to emerging growth companies could make our common stock less attractive to investors” and “Regulation and Supervision — Emerging Growth Company Status.”
An emerging growth company may elect to use the extended transition period to delay adoption of new or revised accounting pronouncements applicable to public companies until such pronouncements are made applicable to private companies, but must make such election when the company is first required to file a registration statement. Such an election is irrevocable during the period a company is an emerging growth company. We have elected to use the extended transition period to delay adoption of new or revised accounting pronouncements applicable to public companies until such pronouncements are made applicable to private companies. Accordingly, our financial statements may not be comparable to the financial statements of public companies that comply with such new or revised accounting standards.
Summary of Risk Factors
An investment in our company is subject to a number of risks, including risks relating to our business, risks related to our common stock and risks related to our charitable foundation. Set forth below is a
17

TABLE OF CONTENTS
high-level summary of some, but not all, of these risks. Please read the information in the section captioned “Risk Factors,” beginning on page 20 of this prospectus, for a more thorough description of these and other risks.
Risks Related to Our Business

We have a substantial amount of commercial and multi-family real estate and commercial and industrial loans, and intend to continue to increase originations of these types of loans. These loans involve credit risks that could adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations.

Our portfolio of loans with a higher risk of loss is increasing and the unseasoned nature of our commercial loan portfolio may result in errors in judging its collectability, which may lead to additional provisions for loan losses or charge-offs, which would hurt our profits.

If our allowance for loan and lease losses is not sufficient to cover actual losses, our earnings could decrease.

A worsening of economic conditions in our market area could reduce demand for our products and services and/or result in increases in our level of non-performing loans, which could adversely affect our operations, financial condition and earnings.

Changes in the valuation of our securities portfolio could hurt our profits and reduce our capital levels.

A tightening of credit markets and liquidity risk could impair our ability to fund operations and jeopardize our financial condition.

Our utilization of time deposits, including brokered certificates of deposit, as a source of funds for loans and our other liquidity needs could have an adverse effect on our operating results.

Our size makes it more difficult for us to compete.

As a community bank, maintaining our reputation in our market area is critical to the success of our business, and the failure to do so may materially adversely affect our performance.

We face significant operational risks because the financial services business involves a high volume of transactions and because of our reliance on technology.

Future changes in interest rates could reduce our profits and affect the value of our assets and liabilities.

Changes in laws and regulations and the cost of regulatory compliance with new laws and regulations may adversely affect our operations and/or increase our costs of operations.

The cost of additional finance and accounting systems, procedures, compliance and controls in order to satisfy our new public company reporting requirements will increase our expenses.

Changes in management’s estimates and assumptions may have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements and our financial condition or operating results.
Risks Related to the Offering

The future price of our common stock may be less than the purchase price in the offering.

The capital we raise in the offering may negatively impact our return on equity until we can fully implement our business plan. This could negatively affect the trading price of our shares of common stock.

We have broad discretion in using the proceeds of the offering. Our failure to effectively deploy the net proceeds of the offering may have an adverse effect on our financial performance and the value of our common stock.
18

TABLE OF CONTENTS

There may be a limited trading market in our common stock, which would hinder your ability to sell our common stock and may lower the market price of the stock.

We will incur a substantial expense in connection with the termination of First Bank Richmond’s participation in the Pentegra DB Plan, which will most likely eliminate all of our earnings for 2019 and result in us reporting a net loss for the year ending 2019.

Our stock-based and other benefit plans will increase our costs, which will reduce our net income.

The implementation of a stock-based benefit plan may dilute your ownership interest.

Our management team has limited experience managing a public company, and regulatory compliance may divert its attention from the day-to-day management of our business.

You may not receive dividends on our common stock.

You may not be able to sell your shares of common stock until you have received a statement reflecting ownership of shares, which will affect your ability to take advantage of changes in the stock price immediately following the offering.

We are an emerging growth company, and any decision on our part to comply only with certain reduced reporting and disclosure requirements applicable to emerging growth companies could make our common stock less attractive to investors.
Risks Related to the Charitable Foundation

The contribution to the charitable foundation will dilute your ownership interest and adversely affect net income in 2019.

Our contribution to the charitable foundation may not be tax deductible, which could reduce our profits.
How You May Obtain Additional Information Regarding the Reorganization and Offering

TABLE OF CONTENTS
RISK FACTORS
You should consider carefully the following risk factors, in addition to all other information in this prospectus, in evaluating an investment in our common stock.
Risks Related to Our Business
We have a substantial amount of commercial and multi-family real estate and commercial and industrial loans, and intend to continue to increase originations of these types of loans. These loans involve credit risks that could adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations.
We intend to continue to originate and purchase commercial and multi-family real estate loans and commercial and industrial loans. At December 31, 2018, our commercial real estate, multi-family real estate and commercial and industrial loans totaled $326.9 million, or 49.5% of our total loans and leases, with approximately $77.2 million of these loans, or 11.7% of our total loans and leases, located in the Columbus, Ohio market. While these types of loans are potentially more profitable than residential mortgage loans, they are generally more sensitive to regional and local economic conditions, making loss levels more difficult to predict. These loans also generally have relatively large balances to single borrowers or related groups of borrowers. Given their larger balances and the complexity of the underlying collateral, commercial and multi-family real estate and commercial and industrial loans generally have more risk than the one- to four-family residential real estate loans we originate. Because the repayment of these types of loans depends on the successful management and operation of the borrower’s properties or related businesses, repayment can be affected by adverse conditions in the local, regional and national real estate market or economy. A downturn in the real estate market or the local, regional and national economy could adversely impact the value of properties securing the loan or the revenues from the borrower’s business, thereby increasing the risk of non-performing loans. Further, unlike residential mortgage loans, commercial and industrial loans may be secured by collateral other than real estate, such as inventory and accounts receivable, the value of which may depreciate over time, may be more difficult to appraise or liquidate and may be more susceptible to fluctuation in value at default. As our commercial and multi-family real estate and commercial and industrial loan portfolios increase, the corresponding risks and potential for losses from these loans may also increase.
Our portfolio of loans with a higher risk of loss is increasing and the unseasoned nature of our commercial loan portfolio may result in errors in judging its collectability, which may lead to additional provisions for loan losses or charge-offs, which would hurt our profits.
Our commercial loan portfolio, which includes commercial and multi-family real estate loans, commercial and industrial loans and construction loans, has increased to $399.9 million, or 60.5% of total loans and leases, at December 31, 2018 from $226.9 million, or 48.5% of total loans and leases, at December 31, 2016. A large portion of our commercial loan portfolio is unseasoned, meaning they were originated recently. Our limited experience with these borrowers does not provide us with a significant payment history pattern with which to judge future collectability. Further, these loans have not been subjected to unfavorable economic conditions. As a result, it is difficult to predict the future performance of this part of our loan portfolio. These loans may have delinquency or charge-off levels above our historical experience, which could adversely affect our future performance.
If our allowance for loan and lease losses is not sufficient to cover actual losses, our earnings could decrease.
We periodically review our allowance for loan and lease losses for adequacy considering economic conditions and trends, collateral values and credit quality indicators, including past charge-off experience and levels of past due loans and non-performing assets. We cannot be certain that our allowance for loan and lease losses will be adequate over time to cover credit losses in our portfolio because of unanticipated adverse changes in the economy, market conditions or events adversely affecting specific customers, industries or markets, and changes in borrower behaviors. Differences between our actual experience and assumptions and the effectiveness of our models may adversely affect our business, financial condition, including liquidity and capital, and results of operations.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
The Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB, adopted Accounting Standards Update, or ASU, No. 2016-13 “Financial Instruments — Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments,” or CECL, on June 16, 2016, which changed the loss model to take into account current expected credit losses. This accounting pronouncement is expected to be applicable to us, as an emerging growth company, effective for our fiscal year beginning January 1, 2022. The federal banking regulators, including the Federal Reserve Board and the FDIC, have adopted a rule that gives a banking organization the option to phase in over a three-year period the day-one adverse effects of CECL on its regulatory capital.
CECL substantially changes how we calculate our allowance for loan and lease losses. We are evaluating CECL and when we will be required to adopt it. We cannot predict when and how it will affect our results of operations and financial condition, including our regulatory capital. See “— We are subject to an extensive body of accounting rules and best practices. Periodic changes to such rules may change the treatment and recognition of critical financial line items and affect our profitability.”
A worsening of economic conditions in our market area could reduce demand for our products and services and/or result in increases in our level of non-performing loans, which could adversely affect our operations, financial condition and earnings.
Local economic conditions have a significant impact on the ability of our borrowers to repay loans and the value of the collateral securing loans. A deterioration in economic conditions could have the following consequences, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, liquidity and results of operations:

demand for our products and services may decline;

loan delinquencies, problem assets and foreclosures may increase;

collateral for loans, especially real estate, may decline in value, thereby reducing customers’ future borrowing power, and reducing the value of assets and collateral associated with existing loans; and

the net worth and liquidity of loan guarantors may decline, impairing their ability to honor commitments to us.
Moreover, a significant decline in general local, regional or national economic conditions caused by inflation, recession, acts of terrorism, an outbreak of hostilities or other international or domestic calamities, unemployment or other factors beyond our control could further impact these local economic conditions and could further negatively affect the financial results of our banking operations. In addition, deflationary pressures, while possibly lowering our operating costs, could have a significant negative effect on our borrowers, especially our business borrowers, and the values of underlying collateral securing loans, which could negatively affect our financial performance.
Changes in the valuation of our securities portfolio could hurt our profits and reduce our capital levels.
Our securities portfolio may be impacted by fluctuations in market value, potentially reducing accumulated other comprehensive income and/or earnings. Fluctuations in market value may be caused by changes in market interest rates, lower market prices for securities and limited investor demand. Management evaluates securities for other-than-temporary impairment on a quarterly basis, with more frequent evaluation for selected issues. In analyzing a debt issuer’s financial condition, management considers whether the securities are issued by the federal government or its agencies, whether downgrades by bond rating agencies have occurred, industry analysts’ reports and, to a lesser extent given the relatively insignificant levels of depreciation in our debt portfolio, spread differentials between the effective rates on instruments in the portfolio compared to risk-free rates. In analyzing an equity issuer’s financial condition, management considers industry analysts’ reports, financial performance and projected target prices of investment analysts within a one-year time frame. If this evaluation shows impairment to the actual or projected cash flows associated with one or more securities, a potential loss to earnings may occur. Changes in interest rates can also have an adverse effect on our financial condition, as our available-for-sale securities are reported at their estimated fair value, and therefore are impacted by fluctuations in interest rates. We
21

TABLE OF CONTENTS
increase or decrease our stockholders’ equity by the amount of change in the estimated fair value of the available-for-sale securities, net of taxes. Declines in market value could result in other-than-temporary impairments of these assets, which would lead to accounting charges that could have a material adverse effect on our net income and capital levels. As of December 31, 2018, we have no securities that are deemed impaired.
A tightening of credit markets and liquidity risk could impair our ability to fund operations and jeopardize our financial condition.
Liquidity is essential to our business. A tightening of the credit markets and the inability to obtain adequate funding to replace deposits and fund continued loan growth may affect asset growth, our earnings capability and capital levels negatively. We rely on a number of different sources in order to meet our potential liquidity demands. Our primary sources of liquidity are increases in deposit accounts, including brokered deposits, as well as cash flows from loan payments and our securities portfolio. Borrowings, especially from the Federal Home Loan Bank and repurchase agreements, also provide us with a source of funds to meet liquidity demands. An inability to raise funds through deposits, borrowings, the sale of loans and other sources could have a substantial negative effect on our liquidity. Our access to funding sources in amounts adequate to finance our activities or on terms that are acceptable to us could be impaired by factors that affect us specifically, or the financial services industry or economy in general. Factors that could detrimentally impact our access to liquidity sources include adverse regulatory action against us or a decrease in the level of our business activity as a result of a downturn in the markets in which our loans are concentrated. Our ability to borrow also could be impaired by factors that are not specific to us, such as a disruption in the financial markets, negative views and expectations about the prospects for the financial services industry or deterioration in credit markets.
Our utilization of time deposits, including brokered certificates of deposit, as a source of funds for loans and our other liquidity needs could have an adverse effect on our operating results.
We rely primarily on deposits for funds to make loans and provide for our other liquidity needs, including time deposits and brokered certificates of deposit. As of December 31, 2018, brokered certificates of deposit represented 20.1% of our total deposits. Such deposits may not be as stable as other types of deposits and, in the future, depositors may not renew those time deposits when they mature, or we may have to pay a higher rate of interest to attract or keep them or to replace them with other deposits or with funds from other sources. Not being able to attract those deposits or to keep or replace them as they mature would adversely affect our liquidity. Additionally, we are regulated by the FDIC, which requires us to maintain certain capital levels to be considered “well capitalized.” If we fail to maintain these capital levels, we could lose our ability to obtain funding through brokered deposits. In addition, we may also be restricted from paying higher deposit rates to attract, keep or replace those deposits, which could have a negative effect on our operating results and the value of our common stock.
We may be adversely affected by recent changes in U.S. tax laws.
Changes in tax laws contained in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which was enacted in December 2017, include a number of provisions that will have an impact on the banking industry, borrowers and the market for single-family residential real estate. Changes include (i) a lower limit on the deductibility of mortgage interest on single-family residential mortgage loans, (ii) the elimination of interest deductions for home equity loans, (iii) a limitation on the deductibility of business interest expense and (iv) a limitation on the deductibility of property taxes and state and local income taxes. The recent changes in the tax laws may have an adverse effect on the market for, and valuation of, residential properties, and on the demand for such loans in the future, and could make it harder for borrowers to make their loan payments. If home ownership becomes less attractive, demand for mortgage loans could decrease. The value of the properties securing loans in our loan portfolio may be adversely impacted as a result of the changing economics of home ownership, which could require an increase in our provision for loan and lease losses, which would reduce our profitability and could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
22

TABLE OF CONTENTS
We use estimates in determining the fair value of certain assets, such as mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”). If our estimates prove to be incorrect, we may be required to write down the value of these assets which could adversely affect our earnings.
We sell a portion of our one- to four-family loans in the secondary market. We generally retain the right to service these loans through First Bank Richmond. At December 31, 2018, the book value of our MSRs was $1.2 million. We use a financial model that uses, wherever possible, quoted market prices to value our MSRs. This model is complex and also uses assumptions related to interest and discount rates, prepayment speeds, delinquency and foreclosure rates and ancillary fee income. Valuations are highly dependent upon the reasonableness of our assumptions and the predictability of the relationships that drive the results of the model. The primary risk associated with MSRs is that they will lose a substantial portion of their value as a result of higher than anticipated prepayments occasioned by declining interest rates. Conversely, these assets generally increase in value in a rising interest rate environment to the extent that prepayments are slower than anticipated. If prepayment speeds increase more than estimated, or delinquency and default levels are higher than anticipated, we may be required to write down the value of our MSRs which could have a material adverse effect on our net income and capital levels. We obtain independent valuations annually to determine if impairment in the asset exists.
If our investment in the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis becomes impaired, our earnings and stockholders’ equity could decrease.
At December 31, 2018, we owned $6.4 million in Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) of Indianapolis stock. We are required to own this stock to be a member of and to obtain advances from the FHLB of Indianapolis. This stock is not marketable and can only be redeemed by the FHLB of Indianapolis. The most recent stock buyback initiated by the FHLB of Indianapolis was in 2015. The FHLB of Indianapolis’ financial condition is linked, in part, to the eleven other members of the FHLB System and to accounting rules and asset quality risks that could materially lower their capital, which would cause our FHLB of Indianapolis stock to be deemed impaired, resulting in a decrease in our earnings and assets.
Our size makes it more difficult for us to compete.
Our asset size makes it more difficult to compete with other financial institutions that are larger and can more easily afford to invest in the marketing and technologies needed to attract and retain customers. Because our principal source of income is the net interest income we earn on our loans and investments after deducting interest paid on deposits and other sources of funds, our ability to generate the revenues needed to cover our expenses and finance such investments is limited by the size of our loan and investment portfolios. Accordingly, we are not always able to offer new products and services as quickly as our competitors. Our lower earnings may also make it more difficult to offer competitive salaries and benefits. In addition, our smaller customer base may make it difficult to generate meaningful non-interest income from such activities as securities brokerage or the sale of insurance products. Finally, as a smaller institution, we are disproportionately affected by the continually increasing costs of compliance with new banking and other regulations.
As a community bank, maintaining our reputation in our market area is critical to the success of our business, and the failure to do so may materially adversely affect our performance.
We are a community bank, and our reputation is one of the most valuable components of our business. A key component of our business strategy is to rely on our reputation for customer service and knowledge of local markets to expand our presence by capturing new business opportunities from existing and prospective customers in our current market and contiguous areas. As such, we strive to conduct our business in a manner that enhances our reputation. This is done, in part, by recruiting, hiring and retaining employees who share our core values of being an integral part of the communities we serve, delivering superior service to our customers and caring about our customers and associates. We operate in many different financial service businesses and rely on the ability of our employees and systems to process a significant number of transactions. Operational risk is the risk of loss from operations, including fraud by employees or outside persons, employees’ execution of incorrect or unauthorized transactions, data processing and technology errors or hacking and breaches of internal control systems. If our reputation is negatively affected by the actions of our employees, by our inability to conduct our operations in a manner that is appealing to current or prospective customers, or otherwise, our business and, therefore, our operating results may be materially adversely affected.
23

TABLE OF CONTENTS
We face significant operational risks because the financial services business involves a high volume of transactions and because of our reliance on technology.
Our business requires us to collect, process, transmit and store significant amounts of confidential information regarding our customers, employees and our own business, operations, plans and business strategies. Our operational and security systems infrastructure, including our computer systems, data management and internal processes, as well as those of third parties, are integral to our performance. Our operational risks include the risk of malfeasance by employees or persons outside our company, errors relating to transaction processing and technology, systems failures or interruptions, breaches of our internal control systems and compliance requirements, and business continuation and disaster recovery. Insurance coverage may not be available for such losses, or where available, such losses may exceed insurance limits. This risk of loss also includes the potential legal actions that could arise as a result of operational deficiencies or as a result of non-compliance with applicable regulatory standards or customer attrition due to potential negative publicity.
In the event of a breakdown in our internal control systems, improper operation of systems or improper employee actions, or a breach of our security systems, including if confidential or proprietary information were to be mishandled, misused or lost, we could suffer financial loss, face regulatory action, civil litigation and/or suffer damage to our reputation. Although to date we have not experienced any technology failures, cyber-attacks or other information or security breaches, there can be no assurance that we will not suffer such losses or other consequences in the future. Our risk and exposure to these matters remain heightened because of, among other things, the evolving nature of these threats and our role as a provider of financial services, our continuous transmission of sensitive information to, and storage of such information by, third parties, including our vendors and regulators, the outsourcing of some of our business operations, threats of cyber-terrorism, and system and customer account updates and conversions. As a result, cyber-security and the continued development and enhancement of our controls, processes and practices designed to protect our systems, computers, software, data and networks from attack, damage or unauthorized access remain a priority.
Our information technology systems may be subject to failure, interruption or security breaches.
Information technology systems are critical to our business. We use various technology systems to manage our customer relationships, general ledger, securities investments, deposits, and loans. We have established policies and procedures to prevent or limit the impact of system failures, interruptions and security breaches, including privacy breaches and cyber-attacks, and, although we have not experienced any such events to date, such failures, interruptions or breaches may still occur or may not be adequately addressed if they do occur.
There have been increasing efforts by third parties to breach data security at financial institutions. Such attacks include computer viruses, malicious or destructive code, phishing attacks, denial of service or information or other security breaches that could result in the unauthorized release, gathering, monitoring, misuse, loss or destruction of confidential, proprietary and other information, damages to systems, or other material disruptions to network access or business operations. There have been several recent instances involving financial services and consumer-based companies reporting the unauthorized disclosure of client or customer information or the destruction or theft of corporate data. Although we take protective measures, the security of our computer systems, software, and networks may be vulnerable to breaches, unauthorized access, misuse, computer viruses, or other malicious code and cyber-attacks that could have an impact on information security. Because the techniques used to cause security breaches change frequently, we may be unable to proactively address these techniques or to implement adequate preventative measures.
In addition, we outsource a majority of our data processing requirements to certain third-party providers. If these third-party providers encounter difficulties, or if we have difficulty communicating with those service providers, our ability to adequately process and account for transactions could be affected, and our business operations could be adversely affected. Threats to information security also exist in the processing of customer information through various other vendors and their personnel. To our knowledge, the services and programs provided to us by third parties have not suffered any security breaches. However, the existence of cyber-attacks or security breaches at third parties with access to our data, such as vendors, may not be disclosed to us in a timely manner.
24

TABLE OF CONTENTS
The occurrence of any system failures, interruption, or breach of security could damage our reputation and result in a loss of customers and business, subject us to additional regulatory scrutiny, or could expose us to litigation and possible financial liability. Any of these events could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.
Future changes in interest rates could reduce our profits and affect the value of our assets and liabilities.
Net income is the amount by which net interest income and non-interest income exceed non-interest expense, the provision for loan and lease losses and taxes. Net interest income makes up a majority of our net income and is based on the difference between:

the interest income we earn on interest-earning assets, such as loans and securities; and

the interest expense we pay on interest-bearing liabilities, such as deposits and borrowings.
The rates we earn on our assets and the rates we pay on our liabilities are generally fixed for a contractual period of time. Like many financial institutions, our liabilities generally have shorter contractual maturities than our assets. This imbalance can create significant earnings volatility because market interest rates change over time. In addition, changes in interest rates can affect the average life of loans and mortgage-backed and related securities. In a period of rising interest rates, the interest income we earn on our assets may not increase as rapidly as the interest we pay on our liabilities. A decline in interest rates results in increased prepayments of loans and mortgage-backed and related securities as borrowers refinance their debt to reduce their borrowing costs. This creates reinvestment risk, which is the risk that we may not be able to reinvest prepayments at rates that are comparable to the rates we earned on the prepaid loans or securities. Furthermore, an inverted interest rate yield curve, where short-term interest rates (which are usually the rates at which financial institutions borrow funds) are higher than long-term interest rates (which are usually the rates at which financial institutions lend funds for fixed-rate loans) can reduce a financial institution’s net interest margin and create financial risk for financial institutions that originate longer-term, fixed-rate mortgage loans. At December 31, 2018, 44.6% of our loan and lease portfolio consisted of fixed-rate loans and leases.
Any substantial, unexpected, prolonged change in market interest rates could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, liquidity and results of operations. Changes in the level of interest rates also may negatively affect the value of our assets and liabilities and ultimately affect our earnings.
We monitor interest rate risk through the use of simulation models, including estimates of the amounts by which the fair value of our assets, liabilities and equity (our economic value of equity or “EVE”) would change in the event of a range of assumed changes in market interest rates. As of December 31, 2018, in the event of an instantaneous 200 basis point increase in interest rates, we estimate that we would experience a 10.1% decrease in EVE. For further discussion of how changes in interest rates could impact us, see “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations — Management of Market Risk.”
Strong competition within our market areas may limit our growth and profitability.
Competition in the banking and financial services industry is intense. In our market area, we compete with commercial banks, savings institutions, mortgage brokerage firms, credit unions, finance companies, mutual funds, insurance companies, and securities brokerage firms and unregulated or less regulated non-banking entities, operating locally and elsewhere. Many of these competitors have substantially greater resources and higher lending limits than we have and offer certain services that we do not or cannot provide. In addition, some of our competitors offer loans with lower interest rates and fees on more attractive terms than loans we offer. Competition also makes it increasingly difficult and costly to attract and retain qualified employees. Our profitability depends upon our continued ability to successfully compete in our market area. If we must raise interest rates paid on deposits or lower interest rates charged on our loans due to competition, our net interest margin and profitability could be adversely affected.
The financial services industry could become even more competitive as a result of new legislative, regulatory and technological changes and continued consolidation. Banks, securities firms and insurance companies can merge under the umbrella of a financial holding company, which can offer virtually any type
25

of financial service, including banking, securities underwriting, insurance (both agency and underwriting) and merchant banking. Also, technology has lowered barriers to entry and made it possible for non-banks to offer products and services traditionally provided by banks, such as automatic transfer and automatic payment systems. Many of our competitors have fewer regulatory constraints and may have lower cost structures. Additionally, due to their size, many competitors may be able to achieve greater economies of scale and, as a result, may offer a broader range of products and services as well as better pricing for those products and services than we can. We expect competition to increase in the future as a result of legislative, regulatory and technological changes and the continuing trend of consolidation in the financial services industry. For additional information see “Business of First Bank Richmond — Market Area” and “— Competition.”
Changes in laws and regulations and the cost of regulatory compliance with new laws and regulations may adversely affect our operations and/or increase our costs of operations.
First Bank Richmond is subject to extensive regulation, supervision and examination by the FDIC and the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions, and Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will be subject to extensive regulation, supervision and examination by the Federal Reserve Board. Such regulation and supervision govern the activities in which an institution and its holding company may engage and are intended primarily for the protection of the federal deposit insurance fund and the depositors of First Bank Richmond, rather than for our stockholders. Regulatory authorities have extensive discretion in their supervisory and enforcement activities, including the imposition of restrictions on our operations, the classification of our assets and determination of the level of our allowance for loan and lease losses. These regulations, along with existing tax, accounting, securities, insurance and monetary laws, rules, standards, policies, and interpretations, control the methods by which financial institutions conduct business, implement strategic initiatives and tax compliance, and govern financial reporting and disclosures. Any change in such regulation and oversight, whether in the form of regulatory policy, regulations, legislation or supervisory action, may have a material impact on our operations. Further, changes in accounting standards can be both difficult to predict and involve judgment and discretion in their interpretation by us and our independent accounting firm. These changes could materially impact, potentially even retroactively, how we report our financial condition and results of operations. See “— We are subject to an extensive body of accounting rules and best practices. Periodic changes to such rules may change the treatment and recognition of critical financial line items and affect our profitability.”
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”) has significantly changed the regulation of banks and savings institutions and affects the lending, deposit, investment, trading and operating activities of financial institutions and their holding companies. The Dodd-Frank Act requires various federal agencies to adopt a broad range of new implementing rules and regulations, and to prepare numerous studies and reports for Congress. The federal agencies have exercised significant discretion in drafting the implementing rules and regulations. It will be some time before the full effect of the Dodd-Frank Act and the regulations thereunder can be assessed. Compliance with the Dodd-Frank Act and its implementing regulations and policies has already resulted in changes to our business and operations, as well as additional costs, and has diverted management’s time from other business activities, all of which have adversely affected our financial condition and results of operations.
We are subject to an extensive body of accounting rules and best practices. Periodic changes to such rules may change the treatment and recognition of critical financial line items and affect our profitability.
The nature of our business makes us sensitive to the large body of accounting rules in the United States. From time to time, the governing bodies that oversee changes to accounting rules and reporting requirements may release new guidance for the preparation of our financial statements. These changes can materially impact how we record and report our financial condition and results of operations. In some instances, we could be required to apply a new or revised standard retroactively, resulting in the restatement of prior period financial statements. Changes which have been approved for future implementation, or which are currently proposed or expected to be proposed or adopted include requirements that we calculate the allowance for loan and lease losses on the basis of the current expected credit losses over the lifetime of our loans, referred to as the CECL model, which is expected to be applicable to us, as an emerging growth company, beginning in 2022. CECL adoption will have broad impact on our financial statements, which will
26

TABLE OF CONTENTS
affect key profitability and solvency measures, including, but not limited to higher loan loss reserve levels and related deferred tax assets. Increased reserve levels also may lead to a reduction in capital levels. Any such changes could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
Under the CECL model, banks will be required to present certain financial assets carried at amortized cost, such as loans held for investment and held-to-maturity debt securities, at the net amount expected to be collected. The measurement of expected credit losses is to be based on information about past events, including historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the collectability of the reported amount. This measurement will take place at the time the financial asset is first added to the balance sheet and periodically thereafter. This differs significantly from the “incurred loss” model required under current GAAP, which delays recognition until it is probable a loss has been incurred. The forward-looking modeling required by CECL relies on a number of macroeconomic variables. Unexpected changes to such indicators between periods could potentially result in greater earnings volatility from period to period. Our reserves may need to be adjusted in response to not only our actual experience, but also to external factors. If we are required to materially increase the level of the allowance for loan and lease losses for any reason, such increase could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
An additional impact of CECL will be the asymmetry in accounting between loan related income, which will continue to be recognized on a periodic basis based on the effective interest method, and the related credit losses, which will be recognized up front at origination. This will make periods of loan expansion seem less profitable due to the immediate recognition of expected credit losses. Periods of stable or declining loan levels will look comparatively more profitable as the income trickles in for loans, where losses had been previously recognized.
We are evaluating the impact the CECL accounting model will have on our accounting, but expect to recognize a one-time cumulative-effect adjustment to the allowance for loan and lease losses as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the new standard is effective. We cannot yet determine the magnitude of any such one-time cumulative adjustment or of the overall impact of the new standard on our financial condition or results of operations. The federal banking regulators, including the Federal Reserve Board and the FDIC, have adopted a rule that gives a banking organization the option to phase in over a three-year period the day-one adverse effects of CECL on its regulatory capital.
Non-compliance with the USA PATRIOT Act, Bank Secrecy Act, or other laws and regulations could result in fines or sanctions.
The USA PATRIOT and Bank Secrecy Acts require financial institutions to develop programs to prevent financial institutions from being used for money laundering and terrorist activities. If such activities are suspected, financial institutions are obligated to file suspicious activity reports with the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. These rules require financial institutions to establish procedures for identifying and verifying the identity of customers seeking to open new financial accounts. Failure to comply with these regulations could result in fines or sanctions, including restrictions on pursuing acquisitions or establishing new branches. The policies and procedures we have adopted that are designed to assist in compliance with these laws and regulations may not be effective in preventing violations of these laws and regulations. Furthermore, these rules and regulations continue to evolve and expand. Although to date we have not been subject to any fines or other sanctions related to these rules and regulations, there can be no assurance that we will not suffer any penalties or other consequences in the future.
We have become subject to more stringent capital requirements, which may adversely impact our return on equity, require us to raise additional capital, or limit our ability to pay dividends or repurchase shares.
Federal regulations establish minimum capital requirements for insured depository institutions, including minimum risk-based capital and leverage ratios, and defines “capital” for calculating these ratios. The minimum capital requirements are: (i) a common equity Tier 1 capital ratio of 4.5%; (ii) a Tier 1 to risk-based assets capital ratio of 6%; (iii) a total capital ratio of 8%; and (iv) a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 4%. The regulations also establish a “capital conservation buffer” of 2.5% which results in the following
27

TABLE OF CONTENTS
minimum ratios: (i) a common equity Tier 1 capital ratio of 7.0%; (ii) a Tier 1 to risk-based assets capital ratio of 8.5%; and (iii) a total capital ratio of 10.5%. An institution will be subject to limitations on paying dividends, engaging in share repurchases and paying discretionary bonuses if its capital level falls below the buffer amounts.
The application of more stringent capital requirements could, among other things, result in lower returns on equity, and result in regulatory actions if we are unable to comply with such requirements. Specifically, following the completion of the offering, First Bank Richmond’s ability to pay dividends to Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will be limited if it does not have the capital conservation buffer required by the capital rules, which may further limit Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland’s ability to pay dividends to stockholders. See “Regulation and Supervision — Federal Banking Regulation — Capital Requirements.”
The cost of additional finance and accounting systems, procedures, compliance and controls in order to satisfy our new public company reporting requirements will increase our expenses.
As a result of the completion of this offering, we will become a public reporting company. We expect that the obligations of being a public company, including the substantial public reporting obligations, will require significant expenditures and place additional demands on our management team. We have made, and will continue to make, changes to our internal controls and procedures for financial reporting and accounting systems to meet our reporting obligations as a stand-alone public company. However, the measures we take may not be sufficient to satisfy our obligations as a public company. Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the “Sarbanes Oxley Act”) requires annual management assessments of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting, starting with the second annual report that we would expect to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Any failure to achieve and maintain an effective internal control environment could have a material adverse effect on our business and stock price. In addition, we may need to hire additional compliance, accounting and financial staff with appropriate public company experience and technical knowledge, and we may not be able to do so in a timely fashion. As a result, we may need to rely on outside consultants to provide these services for us until qualified personnel are hired. These obligations will increase our operating expenses and could divert our management’s attention from our operations.
Changes in accounting standards could affect reported earnings.
The bodies responsible for establishing accounting standards, including the Financial Accounting Standards Board, the Securities and Exchange Commission and other regulatory bodies, periodically change the financial accounting and reporting guidance that governs the preparation of our financial statements. In some cases, we could be required to apply new or revised guidance retroactively. These changes can be hard to predict and can materially impact how we record and report our financial condition and results of operations.
Changes in management’s estimates and assumptions may have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements and our financial condition or operating results.
In preparing this prospectus as well as periodic reports we will be required to file under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including our consolidated financial statements, our management is and will be required under applicable rules and regulations to make estimates and assumptions as of a specified date. These estimates and assumptions are based on management’s best estimates and experience as of that date and are subject to substantial risk and uncertainty. Materially different results may occur as circumstances change and additional information becomes known. Areas requiring significant estimates and assumptions by management include our evaluation of the adequacy of our allowance for loan and lease losses and our determinations with respect to amounts owed for income taxes.
Legal and regulatory proceedings and related matters could adversely affect us.
We have been and may in the future become involved in legal and regulatory proceedings. We consider most of the proceedings to be in the normal course of our business or typical for the industry; however, it is inherently difficult to assess the outcome of these matters, and we may not prevail in any proceedings or litigation. There could be substantial costs and management diversion in such litigation and proceedings,
28

TABLE OF CONTENTS
and any adverse determination could have a materially adverse effect on our business, brand or image, or our financial condition and results of our operations.
We are subject to environmental liability risk associated with lending activities or properties we own.
A significant portion of our loan portfolio is secured by real estate, and we could become subject to environmental liabilities with respect to one or more of these properties, or with respect to properties that we own in operating our business. During the ordinary course of business, we may foreclose on and take title to properties securing defaulted loans. In doing so, there is a risk that hazardous or toxic substances could be found on these properties. If hazardous conditions or toxic substances are found on these properties, we may be liable for remediation costs, as well as for personal injury and property damage, civil fines and criminal penalties regardless of when the hazardous conditions or toxic substances first affected any particular property. Environmental laws may require us to incur substantial expenses to address unknown liabilities and may materially reduce the affected property’s value or limit our ability to use or sell the affected property. In addition, future laws or more stringent interpretations or enforcement policies with respect to existing laws may increase our exposure to environmental liability. Our policies, which require us to perform an environmental review before initiating any foreclosure action on non-residential real property, may not be sufficient to detect all potential environmental hazards. The remediation costs and any other financial liabilities associated with an environmental hazard could have a material adverse effect on us.
We may elect or be compelled to seek additional capital in the future, but that capital may not be available when it is needed or on terms acceptable to us.
We are required by federal regulatory authorities to maintain adequate levels of capital to support our operations. We believe the net proceeds of this offering will be sufficient to permit Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland to maintain regulatory compliance for the foreseeable future. Nevertheless, we may elect to raise more capital to support our business or to finance acquisitions, if any, or we may otherwise elect or be required to raise additional capital in the future. Our ability to raise additional capital, if needed, will depend on conditions in the capital markets, economic conditions and a number of other factors, many of which are outside our control, and on our financial performance. We cannot assure you of our ability to raise additional capital if needed or on terms acceptable to us. If we cannot raise additional capital when needed, or if the terms of such a capital raise are not advantageous, it may have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations and prospects.
There may be future sales of additional common stock or preferred stock or other dilution of our equity, which may adversely affect the market price of our common stock.
We are not restricted from issuing additional common stock or preferred stock, including any securities that are convertible into or exchangeable for, or that represent the right to receive, common stock or preferred stock or any substantially similar securities. The market value of our common stock could decline as a result of sales by us of a large number of shares of common stock or preferred stock or similar securities in the market or the perception that such sales could occur.
Our board of directors is authorized to allow us to issue additional common stock, as well as classes or series of preferred stock, generally without any action on the part of the stockholders. In addition, the board has the power, generally without stockholder approval, to set the terms of any such classes or series of preferred stock that may be issued, including voting rights, dividend rights and preferences over the common stock with respect to dividends or upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of our business and other terms. If we issue additional preferred stock in the future that has a preference over the common stock with respect to the payment of dividends or upon liquidation, dissolution or winding-up, or if we issue additional preferred stock with voting rights that dilute the voting power of the common stock, the rights of holders of the common stock or the market value of the common stock could be adversely affected.
Risks Related to the Offering
The future price of our common stock may be less than the purchase price in the offering.
If you purchase shares of common stock in the offering, you may not be able to sell them later at or above the $10.00 purchase price in the offering. In some cases, shares of common stock issued by newly
29

TABLE OF CONTENTS
converted financial institutions or mutual holding companies have traded below the initial offering price. The aggregate purchase price of the shares of common stock sold in the offering will be based on an independent appraisal. The independent appraisal is not intended, and should not be construed, as a recommendation of any kind as to the advisability of purchasing shares of common stock. The independent appraisal is based on certain estimates, assumptions and projections, all of which are subject to change from time to time. After the shares begin trading, the trading price of our common stock will be determined by the marketplace, and may be influenced by many factors, including prevailing interest rates, the overall performance of the economy, changes in federal tax laws, new regulations, investor perceptions of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland and the outlook for the financial services industry in general. Price fluctuations in our common stock may be unrelated to our operating performance.
The capital we raise in the offering may negatively impact our return on equity until we can fully implement our business plan. This could negatively affect the trading price of our shares of common stock.
Net income divided by average equity, known as “return on equity,” is a ratio many investors use to compare the performance of a financial institution to its peers. Although we anticipate increasing net interest income using proceeds of the offering, our return on equity will be reduced by the capital raised in the offering, higher expenses from the costs of being a public company, and added expenses associated with our employee stock ownership plan and the stock-based benefit plans we intend to adopt. Until we can implement our business plan and increase our net interest income through investment of the proceeds of the offering, we expect our return on equity to remain relatively low compared to our peer group, which may reduce the value of our shares.
We have broad discretion in using the proceeds of the offering. Our failure to effectively deploy the net proceeds of the offering may have an adverse effect on our financial performance and the value of our common stock.
We intend to invest between $40.7 million and $55.3 million, or $63.7 million if the offering is increased by 15%, of the net proceeds of the offering in First Bank Richmond. We also expect to use a portion of the net proceeds we retain to fund a loan to the employee stock ownership plan for the purchase of shares of common stock in the offering by the employee stock ownership plan, will contribute $1.25 million in cash to the charitable foundation that we are establishing in connection with the reorganization and will use approximately $5.0 million to redeem outstanding subordinated debentures and related trust preferred securities issued by First Mutual of Richmond-MHC which will be assumed by Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland in connection with the reorganization. We may use the remaining net proceeds to invest in short-term investments and for general corporate purposes, including, subject to regulatory limitations, the repurchase of shares of common stock and the payment of dividends. First Bank Richmond intends to use approximately $9.8 million, after tax, of the funds it receives from Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland in the offering to terminate its participation in the Pentegra DB Plan and generally intends to use the remaining net proceeds it receives to fund new loans, expand its retail banking franchise by establishing or acquiring new branches or by acquiring other financial institutions or other financial services companies, or for other general corporate purposes. Funds used to pay the termination expense related to the Pentegra DB Plan may be higher or lower depending on a number of factors, including but not limited to the interest rate environment and the valuation of plan assets. With the exception of the loan to the employee stock ownership plan, the contribution to the charitable foundation, the redemption of the subordinated debentures and related trust preferred securities, and the termination expense of the Pentegra DB Plan, we have not allocated specific amounts of the net proceeds for any purposes, and we will have significant flexibility in determining the amount of the net proceeds we apply to different uses and the timing of such applications. Also, certain of these uses, such as any potential acquisition, paying dividends and repurchasing common stock, may require prior regulatory approval. We have not established a timetable for reinvesting the net proceeds, and we cannot predict how long it will take to reinvest the net proceeds. Our failure to utilize these funds effectively and timely would reduce our profitability and may adversely affect the value of our common stock.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
At December 31, 2018, on a consolidated basis, Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Delaware reported stockholders’ equity of  $85.9 million and a return on average equity of 6.89%. Upon completion of the reorganization, Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland, on a consolidated basis, will have stockholders’ equity of between $141.1 million and $181.6 million at the minimum and adjusted maximum of the offering range, respectively.
For additional information see “How We Intend to Use the Proceeds from the Offering.”
There may be a limited trading market in our common stock, which would hinder your ability to sell our common stock and may lower the market price of the stock.
We have never issued capital stock and there is no established market for our common stock. We expect that our common stock will be quoted on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “RMBI” upon conclusion of the offering, subject to completion of the offering and compliance with certain conditions, including having 300 “round lot” stockholders (stockholders owning more than 100 shares) and at least three companies making a market for our common stock. KBW has advised us that it intends to make a market in shares of our common stock following the offering, but it is not obligated to do so or to continue to do so once it begins. While we will attempt before completion of the offering to obtain commitments from at least two other broker-dealers to make a market in shares of our common stock, we may not be able to obtain such commitments. This would result in our common stock not being listed for trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market, which could reduce the liquidity of our common stock.
The development of an active trading market depends on the existence of willing buyers and sellers, the presence of which is not within our control, or that of any market maker. The number of active buyers and sellers of the shares of common stock at any particular time may be limited. Under such circumstances, you could have difficulty selling your shares of common stock on short notice, and, therefore, you should not view the shares of common stock as a short-term investment.
We will incur a substantial expense in connection with the termination of First Bank Richmond’s participation in the Pentegra DB Plan, which will most likely eliminate all of our earnings for 2019 and result in us reporting a net loss for the year ending 2019.
First Bank Richmond participates in the Pentegra DB Plan, an industry-wide, tax-qualified defined-benefit pension plan, which covers substantially all of its employees. First Bank Richmond intends to use funds it receives from Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland in the offering to terminate its participation in the Pentegra DB Plan, which will require us to pay an amount based on the underfunded status of the plan, referred to as a withdrawal liability, which we currently estimate to be approximately $9.8 million after tax. Our actual termination expense may be higher or lower depending on a number of factors, including but not limited to the interest rate environment and the valuation of plan assets. For the year ended December 31, 2018, we reported net income before income taxes of  $7.0 million. As a result of the one-time termination expense and based on our historical earnings, we expect to report a net loss for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019.
Our stock-based and other benefit plans will increase our costs, which will reduce our net income.
We intend to adopt a new stock-based benefit plan after the reorganization and offering, subject to shareholder approval, which will increase our annual compensation and benefit expenses related to the stock options and stock awards granted to participants under the new stock-based benefit plan. The actual amount of these new stock-related compensation and benefit expenses will depend on the number of options and stock awards actually granted under the plan, the fair market value of our stock or options on the date of grant, the vesting period, and other factors that we cannot predict at this time. If we adopt stock-based benefit plans within 12 months following the offering, the total shares of common stock reserved for issuance pursuant to awards of restricted stock and grants of options under such plans would be limited to 4% and 10%, respectively, of the total shares of our common stock sold in the offering and contributed to the charitable foundation. If we award restricted shares of common stock or grant options in excess of these amounts under stock-based benefit plans adopted more than 12 months after the completion of the offering, our costs would increase further.
31

TABLE OF CONTENTS
We also will recognize expense for our employee stock ownership plan when shares are committed to be released to participants’ accounts, and we will recognize expense for restricted stock awards and stock options over the vesting period of awards made to recipients. The expense in the first year following the offering for shares purchased by the employee stock ownership plan in the offering and for our new stock-based benefit plans has been estimated to be approximately $2.4 million ($1.9 million after tax) at the adjusted maximum of the offering range as set forth in the pro forma financial information under “Pro Forma Data,” assuming the $10.00 per share offering price as fair market value. Actual expense may be higher if the price of our common stock at the time the shares are allocated or awarded is greater than $10.00 per share.
For further discussion of our proposed stock-based plans, see “Management — Existing and Future Benefit Plans and Agreements — Proposed Employee Stock Ownership Plan” and “— Proposed Stock-Based Incentive Plan.”
In addition, First Bank Richmond entered into a nonqualified deferred compensation plan with Garry Kleer, its Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, which will result in a $1.9 million ($1.4 million after tax) expense to First Bank Richmond in 2019. For a discussion of the non-qualified deferred compensation plan, see “Management — Existing and Future Benefit Plans and Agreements —  Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan.”
The implementation of a stock-based benefit plan may dilute your ownership interest.
We intend to adopt a stock-based benefit plan following the reorganization and offering. The stock-based benefit plan will be funded through either open market purchases, if permitted, or from the issuance of authorized but unissued shares. Our ability to repurchase shares of common stock to fund these plans will be subject to many factors, including applicable regulatory restrictions on common stock repurchases, the availability of stock in the market, the trading price of the stock, our capital levels, alternative uses for our capital and our financial performance. While our intention is to fund the new stock-based benefit plan through open market purchases, stockholders would experience a reduction in ownership interest totaling 12.3% in the event newly issued shares are used to fund stock options and restricted stock awards in an amount equal to 10.0% and 4.0%, respectively, of the total shares issued in the reorganization and offering (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation).
We have not determined when we will adopt our new stock-based benefit plan. Stock-based benefit plans adopted more than 12 months following the completion of the reorganization and offering may exceed regulatory restrictions on the size of stock-based benefit plans adopted within 12 months, which would further increase our costs.
If we adopt a stock-based benefit plan more than 12 months following the completion of the offering, then grants of shares of common stock or stock options under our existing and proposed stock-based benefit plan may exceed 4% and 10%, respectively, of shares of common stock sold in the offering and contributed to the charitable foundation. Stock-based benefit plans that provide for awards in excess of these amounts would increase our costs beyond the amounts estimated in “— Our stock-based and other benefit plans will increase our costs, which will reduce our net income.” Stock-based benefit plans that provide for awards in excess of these amounts could also result in dilution to shareholders in excess of that described in “— The implementation of a stock-based benefit plan may dilute your ownership interest.” Although the implementation of stock-based benefit plans would be subject to shareholder approval, the timing of the implementation of such plans will be at the discretion of our board of directors. Historically, shareholders have approved these stock-based benefit plans.
Various factors may make takeover attempts more difficult to achieve.
Certain provisions of our articles of incorporation and bylaws and state and federal banking laws, including regulatory approval requirements, could make it more difficult for a third party to acquire control of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland without our board of directors’ prior approval.
Under Federal Reserve Board regulations no person may directly or indirectly acquire or offer to acquire beneficial ownership of more than 10% of our common stock without prior approval of the Federal Reserve Board. Under federal law, subject to certain exemptions, a person, entity or group must notify the
32

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Federal Reserve Board before acquiring control of a bank holding company. Acquisition of 10% or more of any class of voting stock of a bank holding company creates a rebuttable presumption that the acquirer “controls” the bank holding company. Also, a bank holding company must obtain the prior approval of the Federal Reserve Board before, among other things, acquiring direct or indirect ownership or control of more than 5% of any class of voting shares of any bank, including First Bank Richmond.
There also are provisions in our articles of organization that may be used to delay or block a takeover attempt, including a provision that prohibits any person from voting more than 10% of the shares of common stock outstanding and a provision governing certain business combinations. Furthermore, shares of restricted stock and stock options that we may grant to employees and directors, stock ownership by our management and directors and other factors may make it more difficult for companies or persons to acquire control of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland without the consent of our board of directors. Taken as a whole, these statutory provisions and provisions in our articles of incorporation could result in our being less attractive to a potential acquirer and thus could adversely affect the market price of our common stock.
See “Restrictions on Acquisition of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, Inc. (Maryland)” for a discussion of applicable Federal Reserve Board regulations regarding acquisitions and provisions in our articles of incorporation and bylaws that could impact acquisitions of control of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland.
Our management team has limited experience managing a public company, and regulatory compliance may divert its attention from the day-to-day management of our business.
Our management team has limited experience managing a publicly traded company or complying with the complex laws pertaining to public companies. Our management team may not successfully or efficiently manage our transition to a public company, which will be subject to significant regulatory oversight and reporting obligations under the federal securities laws. In particular, these new obligations will require substantial attention from our management team and may divert their attention away from the day-to-day management of our business, which could materially and adversely impact our business operations.
You may not receive dividends on our common stock.
Holders of our common stock are only entitled to receive such dividends as our board of directors may declare out of funds legally available for such payments. The declaration and payment of future cash dividends will be subject to, among other things, regulatory restrictions, our then current and projected consolidated operating results, financial condition, tax considerations, future growth plans, general economic conditions, and other factors our board of directors deems relevant. Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will depend primarily upon the proceeds it retains from the offering as well as earnings of First Bank Richmond to provide funds to pay dividends on our common stock. The payment of dividends by First Bank Richmond also is subject to certain regulatory restrictions. Federal law generally prohibits a depository institution from making any capital distributions (including payment of a dividend) to its parent holding company if the depository institution would thereafter be or continue to be undercapitalized, and dividends by a depository institution are subject to additional limitations. As a result, any payment of dividends in the future by Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will depend, in large part, on First Bank Richmond’s ability to satisfy these regulatory restrictions and its earnings, capital requirements, financial condition and other factors.
You may not be able to sell your shares of common stock until you have received a statement reflecting ownership of shares, which will affect your ability to take advantage of changes in the stock price immediately following the offering.
A statement reflecting ownership of shares of common stock purchased in the offering may not be delivered for several days after the completion of the offering and the commencement of trading in the common stock. Your ability to sell the shares of common stock before receiving your ownership statement will depend on arrangements you may make with a brokerage firm, and you may not be able to sell your shares of common stock until you have received your ownership statement. As a result, you may not be able to take advantage of fluctuations in the price of the common stock immediately following the offering.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
We are an emerging growth company, and any decision on our part to comply only with certain reduced reporting and disclosure requirements applicable to emerging growth companies could make our common stock less attractive to investors.
We are an emerging growth company, and, for as long as we continue to be an emerging growth company, we may choose to take advantage of exemptions from various reporting requirements applicable to other public companies but not to “emerging growth companies,” including, but not limited to, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in our periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation or on any golden parachute payments not previously approved. As an emerging growth company, we also will not be subject to Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, which would require that our independent auditors review and attest as to the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting. We have also elected to use the extended transition period to delay adoption of new or revised accounting pronouncements applicable to public companies until such pronouncements are made applicable to private companies. Accordingly, our financial statements may not be comparable to the financial statements of public companies that comply with such new or revised accounting standards.
We could remain an “emerging growth company” for up to five years, or until the earliest of  (a) the last day of the first fiscal year in which our annual gross revenues exceed $1.07 billion, (b) the date that we become a “large accelerated filer” as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which would occur if the market value of our common stock that is held by non-affiliates exceeds $700 million as of the last business day of our most recently completed second fiscal quarter, or (c) the date on which we have issued more than $1.0 billion in non-convertible debt during the preceding three-year period.
As a result, our stockholders may not have access to certain information they may deem important, and investors may find our common stock less attractive if we choose to rely on these exemptions. This could result in a less active trading market for our common stock and the price of our common stock may be more volatile.
Risks Related to the Charitable Foundation
The contribution to the charitable foundation will dilute your ownership interest and adversely affect net income in 2019.
We intend to establish and fund a new charitable foundation in connection with the reorganization and offering, subject to approval of the members of First Mutual of Richmond-MHC. We intend to contribute a total of  $6.25 million to the charitable foundation, which contribution will consist of  $5.0 million (500,000 shares) of common stock and $1.25 million of cash. The 500,000 shares of common stock contributed to the charitable foundation will represent approximately 6.0%, 5.1%, 4.4% and 3.8% of the common stock sold in the offering at the minimum, midpoint, maximum and adjusted maximum of the offering range, respectively. The contribution will have an adverse effect on our net income for the quarter and year in which we make the issuance and contribution to the charitable foundation. The after-tax expense of the contribution is expected to reduce net income in fiscal 2019 by approximately $4.6 million. Our fiscal 2018 net income was $5.7 million. In addition, persons purchasing shares in the offering will have their ownership and voting interests in Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland diluted by up to 5.6% and 3.7% at the minimum and adjusted maximum of the offering range, respectively due to the contribution of shares of common stock to the charitable foundation.
Our contribution to the charitable foundation may not be tax deductible, which could reduce our profits.
We may not have sufficient profits to be able to fully use the tax deduction from our contribution to the charitable foundation. Under the Internal Revenue Code, an entity is permitted to deduct up to 10% of its taxable income (generally income before federal income taxes and charitable contributions expense) in any one year for charitable contributions. Any contribution in excess of the 10% limit may be deducted for federal income tax purposes over each of the five years following the year in which the charitable contribution is made. Accordingly, a charitable contribution could, if necessary, be deducted over a six-year period and expires thereafter.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
As previously stated, we will incur a substantial expense in connection with the termination of First Bank Richmond’s participation in the Pentegra DB Plan, which will most likely eliminate all of our earnings for 2019 and result in us reporting a net loss for the year. As a result, we do not expect to be able to use the tax deduction in 2019 from our contribution to the charitable foundation. There are no assurances that we will have sufficient profits in the future to be able to fully use the tax deduction from our contribution to the charitable foundation.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Act”) was enacted on December 22, 2017 reducing our federal corporate tax rate from 34% to 21%, effective January 1, 2018. As a result of the Tax Act, our provision for income taxes and net income in 2018 were positively impacted by a $676,000 tax benefit related to tax rate changes, while our provision for income taxes and net income in 2017 were negatively impacted by an additional $1.5 million in tax expense related to an adjustment to our deferred tax asset.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Financial Condition at March 31, 2019 Compared to December 31, 2018
General.   Total assets increased $33.2 million, or 3.9%, to $882.8 million at March 31, 2019 from $849.6 million at December 31, 2018. This increase primarily was driven by a $17.3 million increase in the loan and lease portfolio, net of allowance for loan and lease losses, and a $16.4 million increase in cash and investments. The increase in cash and investments was driven by a $16.0 million, or 106.7%, increase in cash and cash equivalents resulting from the inflow of deposits during the first quarter of 2019.
Loans and Leases.   Our loan and lease portfolio, net of allowance for loan and lease losses, increased $17.3 million, or 2.6%, to $672.1 million at March 31, 2019 from $654.8 million at December 31, 2018. The majority of the growth occurred in our Columbus, Ohio market area in the commercial real estate and the construction and development portfolios. The Columbus, Ohio area is experiencing some of the strongest economic activity in the Midwest. We also experienced some modest growth in our one- to four-family loan portfolio during the first quarter of 2019. We continue to sell longer term fixed-rate mortgage loans, whenever possible, to reduce related interest rate risk.
Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses.   Our allowance for loan and lease losses increased $236,000, or 4.2%, to $5.8 million at March 31, 2019 from $5.6 million at December 31, 2018, primarily as a result of the increased commercial real estate and construction loans in our loan and lease portfolio. At March 31, 2019, the allowance for loan and lease losses totaled 0.86% of total loans and leases outstanding compared to 0.85% at December 31, 2018. Net charge-offs during the first quarter of 2019 were $289,000.
Deposits.     Total deposits increased $21.5 million, or 3.5%, to $642.1 million at March 31, 2019 from $620.6 million at December 31, 2018. This increase occurred primarily due to growth in money market accounts and retail certificates of deposit. Brokered deposits decreased $7.8 million during the first quarter of 2019. At March 31, 2019, our brokered deposits totaled $116.7 million, or 18.2% of total deposits. Our reliance on brokered deposits may increase our overall cost of funds.
Borrowings.   Total borrowings, consisting solely of FHLB advances, increased $9.0 million, or 6.6%, to $145.1 million at March 31, 2019 from $136.1 million at December 31, 2018. The increase in borrowings, along with deposit growth, were used to fund loan growth during the period.
Stockholders’ Equity.   Stockholders’ equity totaled $89.1 million as of March 31, 2019, an increase of $3.3 million, or 3.8%, from December 31, 2018. The increase in stockholders’ equity was due to net income of  $1.4 million and a $1.8 million reduction in the accumulated other comprehensive income (loss). First Bank Richmond’s tangible common equity ratio and its risk-based capital ratios exceeded “well-capitalized” levels as defined by all regulatory standards as of March 31, 2019.
Comparison of Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2019 and 2018.
General.   Net income increased $160,000, or 13.2%, to $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to $1.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The primary reasons for the increase in net income were a $569,000 increase in net interest income and a $65,000 increase in non-interest income, partially offset by increases of  $366,000 in non-interest expense and $75,000 in the provision for loan and lease losses.
Interest Income.   Total interest income increased $1.6 million, or 19.5%, to $9.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to $8.2 million for the same the three month period in 2018. The increase was primarily attributable to a $85.2 million increase in the average balance of loans and leases outstanding and a 28 basis point increase in the yield on loans and leases for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018.
Interest Expense.   Total interest expense increased $1.0 million, or 63.6%, to $2.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to $1.6 million during the same period in 2018. The increase primarily was attributable to the higher average balances of certificates of deposit and FHLB advances in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the first quarter of 2018, as well as higher overall rates on certificates of deposits and FHLB advances. The average balances of certificates of deposit and FHLB advances in the first quarter of 2019 increased $53.8 million and $27.8 million, respectively, over the average balances

TABLE OF CONTENTS
during the three months ended March 31, 2018. The average rates paid on certificates of deposit and FHLB advances during the three months ended March 31, 2019 increased 57 basis points and 54 basis points, respectively, over the rates paid during the comparable period in 2018.
Net Interest Income.   Net interest income before the provision for loan and lease losses increased $569,000, or 8.7%, in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the first quarter of 2018. This was due to an increase in interest-earning assets during the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to the comparable period in 2018. Net interest margin in the first quarter of 2019 declined to 3.49% compared to 3.64% in the first three months of 2018.
Provision for Loan and Lease Losses.   The provision for loan and lease losses for the three months ended March 31, 2019 totaled $525,000 compared to $450,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018, a $75,000, or 16.7%, increase. The higher provision was due to the increase in the size of the loan portfolio, primarily commercial real estate and construction and development loans, and higher net charge-offs during the period. Net charge-offs during the first quarter of 2019 were $289,000, compared to a net recovery of $1,000 in the first quarter of 2018.
Non-Interest Income.   Total non-interest income increased $65,000, or 7.8%, to $904,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to $839,000 for the same period in 2018. The increase was primarily due to a $74,000 increase in loan and lease servicing fees resulting from a higher volume of loan and lease originations during the period. In addition, we recorded a $25,000 net gain on securities during the three months ended March 31, 2019, with no similar gain recorded during the comparable period in 2018. These increases were partially offset by a $21,000 decrease in service charges on deposit accounts during the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.
Non-Interest Expense.   Total non-interest expense increased $366,000, or 6.7%, to $5.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to the same period in 2018. Salaries and employee benefits increased $65,000, or 1.9%, in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the first quarter of 2018, primarily due to merit increases and higher related benefits. Data processing fees increased $43,000, or 11.6%, and FDIC assessments increased $29,000, or 27.4%, during the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to March 31, 2018. The increase in data processing fees primarily was a result of higher transaction volume while the increase in FDIC assessments was attributable to the increase in our asset size and the higher amount of brokered deposits held in the first quarter of 2019 compared with the first quarter of 2018. Legal and professional fees also increased $155,000, or 109.4%, in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018, primarily as a result of the reorganization.
Income Tax Expense.   Income tax expense increased by $34,000, or 11.9%, to $322,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to the same period in 2018. This increase primarily was due to pre-tax income increasing by $194,000 during the first quarter of 2019 over the first quarter of 2018.

HOW WE INTEND TO USE THE PROCEEDS FROM THE OFFERING
Although we will not be able to determine the amount of actual net proceeds we will receive from the sale of shares of common stock until the offering is completed, we anticipate that the net proceeds will be between $81.4 million and $110.6 million, or $127.5 million if the offering is increased by 15%.
Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland intends to distribute the net proceeds from the offering as follows:

The employee stock ownership plan (“ESOP”) will purchase 8.0% of the shares of common stock sold in the offering (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation) with the ESOP obtaining the funds to purchase the shares from a loan made available by Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland to the ESOP. The loan will be repaid principally through First Bank Richmond’s contribution to the ESOP and dividends payable on common stock held by the ESOP over the anticipated 20-year term of the loan. The interest rate for the ESOP loan is expected to be equal to the prime rate, as published in The Wall Street Journal, on the closing date of the offering.
The net proceeds may vary because total expenses relating to the reorganization and offering may be more or less than our estimates. For example, our expenses would increase if a syndicated community offering were used to sell shares of common stock not purchased in the subscription offering and the community offering. See “The Reorganization and Offering — Plan of Distribution and Marketing Arrangements” for a discussion of fees to be paid in the event that shares are sold in a syndicated community offering. Payments for shares made through withdrawals from existing deposit accounts will not result in the receipt of new funds for investment but will result in a reduction of First Bank Richmond’s deposits. First Bank Richmond will receive at least 50% of the net proceeds of the offering.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Use of Proceeds Retained by Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland
Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland:

intends to initially invest the proceeds that it retains in interest-earning deposits and in securities, including securities issued by the U.S. government and its agencies or government sponsored enterprises, mortgage-backed securities, and other securities as permitted by our investment policy. See “Business of First Bank Richmond — Investment Activities;”

may, in the future, use a portion of the proceeds that it retains to pay cash dividends or to repurchase shares of our common stock, although under current federal regulations we may not repurchase shares of our common stock during the first year following the reorganization and offering, except to fund stock-based benefit plans or when extraordinary circumstances exist with prior regulatory approval;

may, in the future, use a portion of the proceeds that it retains to finance acquisitions of financial institutions, or branches thereof, or other financial services businesses, or to expand through de novo branching, although no specific transactions are being considered at this time and no specific expansion is being considered at this time; and

expects to use the proceeds that it retains from time to time for other general corporate purposes.
See “Our Policy Regarding Dividends” for a discussion of our expected dividend policy following the completion of the offering.
Use of Proceeds Received by First Bank Richmond
First Bank Richmond:

intends to use approximately $9.8 million, after tax, to terminate its participation in the Pentegra DB Plan (as a result of which, and based on our historical earnings, we expect to report a net loss for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019); however, this amount may be higher or lower depending on a number of factors, including but not limited to the interest rate environment and the valuation of plan assets;

intends to use a portion of the proceeds received to fund new loans;

may use a portion of the proceeds received to support new loan, deposit and other financial products and services if our board of directors determines that such products will help us compete more effectively in our market area or increase our financial performance;

may invest a portion of the proceeds received in securities issued by the U.S. government and its agencies or government sponsored enterprises, mortgage-backed securities, and other securities as permitted by our investment policy;

may, in the future, use a portion of the proceeds received to expand our retail banking franchise, by acquiring other financial institutions, branch offices or other financial services businesses, or establishing new branches or loan production offices, although no specific transactions are being considered at this time; and

expects to use the proceeds received from time to time for other general corporate purposes.
The use of the proceeds by Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland and First Bank Richmond may change based on changes in interest rates, equity markets, laws and regulations affecting the financial services industry, our relative position in the financial services industry, the attractiveness of potential acquisitions to expand our operations, and overall market conditions.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
OUR POLICY REGARDING DIVIDENDS
Following completion of the reorganization, our board of directors will have the authority to declare dividends on our shares of common stock, subject to statutory and regulatory requirements. We currently intend to pay quarterly cash dividends but have not determined the amount or when payment would start. The payment and amount of dividends would depend upon a number of factors, including: regulatory capital requirements; our financial condition and results of operations; our other uses of funds for the long-term value of stockholders; tax considerations; statutory and regulatory limitations; and general economic conditions. No assurances can be given that any dividends will be paid or that, if paid, they will not be reduced or eliminated in the future. Special cash dividends, stock dividends or returns of capital, to the extent permitted by applicable law, regulations and policy, may be paid in addition to, or in lieu of, regular cash dividends.
The Federal Reserve Board has issued a policy statement providing that dividends should be paid only out of current earnings and only if our prospective rate of earnings retention is consistent with our capital needs, asset quality and overall financial condition. Regulatory guidance also provides for prior regulatory consultation with respect to capital distributions in certain circumstances such as where the holding company’s net income for the past four quarters, net of dividends previously paid over that period, is insufficient to fully fund the dividend or the holding company’s overall rate of earnings retention is inconsistent with its capital needs and overall financial condition. In addition, First Bank Richmond’s ability to pay dividends will be limited if it does not have the capital conservation buffer required by the applicable capital rules, which may limit our ability to pay dividends to stockholders. See “Regulation and Supervision — Federal Banking Regulation — Capital Requirements.” No assurances can be given that any dividends will be paid or that, if paid, will not be reduced or eliminated in the future.
Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will file a consolidated federal tax return with First Bank Richmond. Accordingly, it is anticipated that any cash distributions that Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland makes to its stockholders would be treated as cash dividends and not as a non-taxable return of capital for federal and state tax purposes. Additionally, pursuant to regulations of the Federal Reserve Board, during the three-year period following the offering, Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will not take any action to declare an extraordinary dividend to its stockholders that would be treated by recipients as a tax-free return of capital for federal income tax purposes.
Pursuant to Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland’s articles of incorporation, we are authorized to issue preferred stock. If we issue preferred stock, the holders thereof may have a priority over the holders of our shares of common stock with respect to the payment of dividends. For a further discussion concerning the payment of dividends on our shares of common stock, see “Description of Capital Stock of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, Inc. (Maryland) — Common Stock.” Dividends we can declare and pay will depend, in part, upon receipt of dividends from First Bank Richmond, because initially we will have no source of income other than dividends from First Bank Richmond and earnings from the investment of the net proceeds from the sale of shares of common stock retained by Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland and interest payments received in connection with the loan to the employee stock ownership plan. Indiana banking law imposes limitations on “capital distributions” by First Bank Richmond. See “Regulation and Supervision — Indiana Banking Regulation — Dividends.”
Any payment of dividends by First Bank Richmond to Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland that would be deemed to be drawn out of First Bank Richmond’s bad debt reserves, if any, would require a payment of taxes at the then-current tax rate by First Bank Richmond on the amount of earnings deemed to be removed from the reserves for such distribution. First Bank Richmond does not intend to make any distribution to Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland that would create such a federal tax liability. See “Taxation.”

TABLE OF CONTENTS
MARKET FOR THE COMMON STOCK
Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland has never issued capital stock. Accordingly, there is no established market for our common stock. Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland expects that its common stock will be listed for trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “RMBI”, subject to completion of the reorganization and offering, and compliance with certain listing conditions, including the presence of at least three registered and active market makers. KBW has advised us that it intends to make a market in shares of our common stock following the offering, but it is not obligated to do so or to continue to do so once it begins. While we will attempt before completion of the offering to obtain commitments from at least two other broker-dealers to make a market in shares of our common stock, there can be no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining such commitments.
The development and maintenance of an active trading market, having the desirable characteristics of depth, liquidity and orderliness, depends on the existence of willing buyers and sellers, which is not within our control or that of any market maker. The number of active buyers and sellers of shares of our common stock at any particular time may be limited. Under such circumstances, you could have difficulty selling your shares of common stock on short notice, and, therefore, you should not view the shares of common stock as a short-term investment. Furthermore, we cannot assure you that, if you purchase shares of common stock, you will be able to sell them at or above $10.00 per share. Purchasers of common stock in this offering should have long-term investment intent and should recognize that there may be a limited trading market in the common stock. This may make it difficult to sell the common stock after the offering and may have an adverse impact on the price at which the common stock can be sold.

Does not reflect withdrawals from deposit accounts for the purchase of shares of common stock in the offering. Such withdrawals would reduce pro forma deposits by the amount of such withdrawals.
(3)
The sum of the par value and the additional paid-in capital equals the net offering proceeds plus Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Delaware’s historical retained earnings. No effect has been given to the issuance of additional shares of common stock pursuant to the exercise of options under one or more stock-based benefit plans that we expect to adopt following completion of the reorganization and offering. See “Management — Existing and Future Benefit Plans and Agreements.”

The retained earnings of First Bank Richmond will be substantially restricted after the offering. See “Regulation and Supervision — Indiana Banking Regulation — Dividends.”

Represents the expense of the contribution to the charitable foundation based on a 25.9% tax rate. The realization of the deferred tax benefit is limited annually to a maximum deduction for charitable donations equal to 10% of our annual taxable income, subject to our ability to carry forward any unused portion of the deduction for five years following the year in which the contribution is made.
(7)
Assumes that 8.0% of the shares of common stock outstanding following the reorganization and offering (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation) will be purchased by the employee stock ownership plan at a price of  $10.00 per share and that the funds used to acquire the employee stock ownership plan shares will be borrowed from Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland and will represent unearned compensation, reflected as a reduction of stockholders’ equity. First Bank Richmond will provide the funds to repay the employee stock ownership plan loan. See “Management — Existing and Future Benefit Plans and Agreements.”
(8)
Assumes a number of shares of common stock equal to 4.0% of the shares of common stock outstanding following the reorganization and offering (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation) will be purchased for grant by one or more stock-based benefit plans. The funds to be used by such plans to purchase the shares will be provided by Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland. The dollar amount of common stock to be purchased is based on the $10.00 per share offering price and represents unearned compensation. This amount does not reflect possible increases or decreases in the value of common stock relative to the offering price. Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will accrue compensation expense to reflect the vesting of shares pursuant to such stock-based benefit plans and will credit capital in an amount equal to the charge to operations. Implementation of such plans will require stockholder approval. See “Management —  Existing and Future Benefit Plans and Agreements.”

At December 31, 2018, we had no intangible assets, other than our MSRs which are included for purposes of calculating tangible stockholder equity.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
PRO FORMA DATA
The following tables summarize our historical data and the pro forma data of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland at and for the year ended December 31, 2018. This information is based on assumptions set forth below, and in the table and related footnotes, and should not be used as a basis for projections of market value of the shares of common stock following the reorganization.
The net proceeds disclosed in the tables are based upon the following assumptions:
(i) 
all shares of common stock will be sold in the subscription and community offerings;
(ii)
our directors, executive officers, and their associates will purchase 225,100 shares of common stock;
(iii)
our employee stock ownership plan will purchase an amount of shares equal to 8.0% of our outstanding shares, including shares contributed to the charitable foundation, with a loan from Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland. The loan will be repaid in substantially equal principal payments over a period of 20 years. Interest income that we earn on the loan will offset the interest paid by First Bank Richmond;
(iv)
Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will contribute $1.25 million in cash to the charitable foundation;
(v)
we will pay KBW a fee equal to 1.0% of the aggregate amount of common stock sold in the subscription and community offerings, excluding any shares of common stock purchased by our tax-qualified and non-qualified employee stock benefit plans or contributed to the charitable foundation; and
(vi)
total expenses of the offering, other than fees and commissions to be paid to KBW, will be $1.6 million.
We calculated the pro forma consolidated net income of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland for the year as if the shares of common stock had been sold at the beginning of the year and the net proceeds had been invested at 2.51% (1.86% on an after-tax basis), which is equal to the yield on the five-year U.S. Treasury Note as of December 31, 2018. In light of current interest rates, we consider this rate to more accurately reflect the pro forma reinvestment rate than the arithmetic average method, which assumes reinvestment of the net proceeds at a rate equal to the average of the yield on interest-earning assets and the cost of deposits for those periods.
We further believe that the reinvestment rate is factually supportable because:

the yield on the U.S. Treasury Note can be determined and/or estimated from third-party sources; and

we believe that U.S. Treasury securities are not subject to credit losses due to a U.S. Government guarantee of payment of principal and interest.
We calculated historical and pro forma per share amounts by dividing historical and pro forma amounts of net income and stockholders’ equity by the indicated number of shares of common stock. For pro forma income calculations, we adjusted these figures to give effect to the shares of common stock purchased by the employee stock ownership plan. We computed per share amounts for each period as if the common stock was outstanding at the beginning of the periods, but we did not adjust per share historical or pro forma stockholders’ equity to reflect the earnings on the estimated net proceeds.
The pro forma tables give effect to the implementation of one or more stock-based benefit plans. We have assumed that the stock-based benefit plans will acquire an amount of common stock equal to 4.0% of our outstanding shares of common stock (including shares contributed to the charitable foundation) at the same price for which they were sold in the offering. We assume that shares of common stock are granted under the plan in awards that vest over a five-year period.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
We have also assumed that the stock-based benefit plans will grant options to acquire common stock equal to 10.0% of our outstanding shares of common stock (including shares of common stock contributed to the charitable foundation). In preparing the following tables, we also assumed that stockholder approval was obtained, that the exercise price of the stock options and the market price of the stock at the date of grant were $10.00 per share and that the stock options had a term of ten years and vested over five years. We applied the Black-Scholes option pricing model to estimate a grant-date fair value of  $2.95 for each option. In addition to the terms of the options described above, the Black-Scholes option pricing model incorporated an estimated volatility rate of 13.53% for the common stock based on an index of publicly traded thrifts, no dividend yield, an expected option life of 10 years and a risk-free interest rate of 2.69%.
As disclosed under “How We Intend to Use the Proceeds from the Offering,” Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland intends to contribute 50% of the net proceeds from the offering to First Bank Richmond and will retain the remainder of the net proceeds from the offering. Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland will use a portion of the proceeds it retains for the purpose of making a loan to the employee stock ownership plan, will utilize its funds to make the cash contribution to the foundation and retain the rest of the proceeds for future use. First Bank Richmond intends to use approximately $9.8 million, after tax, of the proceeds it receives from Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland to terminate its participation in the Pentegra DB Plan. Funds used to pay the termination expense related to the Pentegra DB Plan may be higher or lower depending on a number of factors, including but not limited to the interest rate environment and the valuation of plan assets.
The pro forma table does not give effect to:

withdrawals from deposit accounts for the purpose of purchasing shares of common stock in the offering;

our results of operations after the offering;

increased fees and expenses that we would pay KBW and other broker-dealers if we conducted a syndicated offering; or

changes in the market price of the shares of common stock after the offering.
The following pro forma information may not represent the financial effects of the offering at the date on which the offering actually occurs and you should not use the tables to indicate future results of operations. Pro forma stockholders’ equity represents the difference between the stated amounts of assets and liabilities of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation-Maryland, computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We did not increase or decrease stockholders’ equity to reflect the difference between the carrying value of loans and other assets and their market value. Pro forma stockholders’ equity is not intended to represent the fair market value of the common stock, and may be different than the amounts that would be available for distribution to stockholders if we were liquidated. Pro forma stockholders’ equity does not give effect to the impact of tax bad debt reserves in the event we were to be liquidated.
