ITEM 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 9, 2019, Independent Bank Group, Inc., a Texas corporation (“IBTX”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Texas Capital Bancshares, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“TCBI”). The Merger Agreement provides that, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein, TCBI will merge with and into IBTX (the “Merger”), with IBTX as the surviving entity in the Merger. Immediately following the Merger, TCBI’s wholly owned subsidiary, Texas Capital Bank, will merge with and into IBTX’s wholly owned subsidiary, Independent Bank (the “Bank Merger”), with Independent Bank as the surviving entity in the Bank Merger. The Merger Agreement was unanimously approved by the Board of Directors of each of IBTX and TCBI.

Merger Consideration

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), each share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of TCBI (“TCBI Common Stock”) outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, other than certain shares held by TCBI or IBTX, will be converted into the right to receive the merger consideration of 1.0311 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of IBTX (“IBTX Common Stock”). Holders of TCBI Common Stock will receive cash in lieu of fractional shares.

At the Effective Time, (i) each outstanding share of 6.50% Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A, par value $0.01 per share, of TCBI (collectively, “TCBI Preferred Stock”) will be automatically converted into the right to receive one share of a newly issued series of IBTX preferred stock having substantially the same terms as such share of TCBI Preferred Stock (taking into account that TCBI will not be the surviving entity in the Merger and any adjustment to the right of optional redemption by IBTX that is reasonably necessary to obtain Tier 1 Capital treatment from the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “Federal Reserve Board”) for such preferred stock) (“New IBTX Preferred Stock”), and (ii) unless otherwise agreed between TCBI and IBTX, each outstanding TCBI equity award under TCBI’s equity compensation plans will vest and be converted into the right to receive the merger consideration (or, in the case of cash-settled TCBI equity awards, an amount in cash determined based on the value of the merger consideration) in respect of each share of TCBI Common Stock underlying such TCBI equity award (and in the case of TCBI stock appreciation rights, less the applicable exercise price).  Any performance goals applicable to TCBI equity awards will be deemed satisfied at the Effective Time based on the greater of target and actual performance.

Certain Governance Matters

The Merger Agreement also provides, among other things, that effective as of the Effective Time, David R. Brooks, the current Chairman of the Board of Directors, President and Chief Executive Officer of IBTX, will continue to serve as Chairman of the Board of Directors, President and Chief Executive Officer of the surviving entity and of the surviving bank. The Merger Agreement also provides that, effective as of the Effective Time, Larry L. Helm, the current Chairman of TCBI, will be appointed as lead independent director of the surviving entity and C. Keith Cargill, the current President and Chief Executive Officer of TCBI, will be appointed as strategic consultant to Mr. David R. Brooks, the Chairman of the Board of Directors, President and Chief Executive Officer of the surviving entity and the surviving bank.  In addition, the Board of Directors of the surviving entity and the surviving bank will be comprised of 13 directors, of which 7 will be former members of the board of directors of TCBI and of which 6 will be former members of the board of directors of IBTX.  Effective as of the Effective Time, the bylaws of IBTX will be amended to reflect the foregoing and certain related governance matters.  In connection with the completion of the Merger, IBTX’s certificate of formation will also be amended to increase the number of authorized shares of IBTX Common Stock from 100 million to 200 million and the number of authorized shares of IBTX preferred stock from 10 million to 20 million.

The amendment to IBTX’s bylaws to be adopted pursuant to the Merger Agreement provides that, until the third anniversary of the closing of the Merger, the Board of Directors of the surviving entity will have four committees: (1) Audit Committee, (2) Compensation Committee, (3) Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee and (4) Risk Committee.  At the Effective Time and until the third anniversary of the closing of the Merger, the chairperson of the Audit Committee and the Risk Committee will be designated from among the continuing TCBI directors (and their successors), and the chairperson of the Compensation Committee and the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee will be designated from among the continuing IBTX directors (and their successors), and the membership of each of the foregoing committees will be, as practicably as possible, evenly split between continuing TCBI directors (and their successors) and continuing IBTX directors (and their successors).

In addition, the Merger Agreement provides that the corporate headquarters of the surviving entity and of the surviving bank will be located in McKinney, Texas. The name of the surviving entity will be Independent Bank Group, Inc., and the name of the surviving bank will be Texas Capital Bank. The surviving bank will be operated under the name Independent Financial in Colorado and under the name Texas Capital Bank in Texas.

Certain Other Terms and Conditions of the Merger Agreement

The Merger Agreement contains customary representations and warranties from both IBTX and TCBI, and each party has agreed to customary covenants, including, among others, covenants relating to (1) the conduct of its business during the interim period between the execution of the Merger Agreement and the Effective Time, (2) its obligation to call a meeting of its shareholders to adopt and approve the Merger Agreement, and, subject to certain exceptions, to recommend that its shareholders adopt and approve the Merger Agreement, and (3) its non-solicitation obligations related to alternative acquisition proposals.

The completion of the Merger is subject to customary conditions, including (1) adoption and approval of the Merger Agreement by TCBI’s shareholders and by IBTX’s shareholders, (2) authorization for listing on the NASDAQ Stock Market, Inc. Global Select Market System of the shares of IBTX Common Stock and New IBTX Preferred Stock to be issued in the Merger, subject to official notice of issuance, (3) the receipt of required regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Texas Department of Banking, (4) effectiveness of the registration statement on Form S-4 for the IBTX Common Stock and New IBTX Preferred Stock to be issued in the Merger, and (5) the absence of any order, injunction, decree or other legal restraint preventing the completion of the Merger or making the completion of the Merger illegal. Each party’s obligation to complete the Merger is also subject to certain additional customary conditions, including (a) subject to certain exceptions, the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the other party, (b) performance in all material respects by the other party of its obligations under the Merger Agreement and (c) receipt by such party of an opinion from its counsel to the effect that the Merger will qualify as a reorganization within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

The Merger Agreement provides certain termination rights for both IBTX and TCBI and further provides that a termination fee of $115,000,000 will be payable by either IBTX or TCBI, as applicable, upon termination of the Merger Agreement under certain circumstances.

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The representations, warranties and covenants of each party set forth in the Merger Agreement have been made only for the purposes of, and were and are solely for the benefit of the parties to, the Merger Agreement, may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to the Merger Agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts, and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors. Accordingly, the representations and warranties may not describe the actual state of affairs at the date they were made or at any other time, and investors should not rely on them as statements of fact. In addition, such representations and warranties (1) will not survive consummation of the Merger, and (2) were made only as of the date of the Merger Agreement or such other date as is specified in the Merger Agreement. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Merger Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the parties’ public disclosures. Accordingly, the Merger Agreement is included with this filing only to provide investors with information regarding the terms of the Merger Agreement, and not to provide investors with any factual information regarding IBTX or TCBI, their respective affiliates or their respective businesses. The Merger Agreement should not be read alone, but should instead be read in conjunction with the other information regarding IBTX, TCBI, their respective affiliates or their respective businesses, the Merger Agreement and the Merger that will be contained in, or incorporated by reference into, the Registration Statement on Form S-4 that will include a joint proxy statement of IBTX and TCBI and a prospectus of IBTX, as well as in the Forms 10-K, Forms 10-Q and other filings that each of IBTX and TCBI make with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

ITEM 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Brooks, which will replace his existing change in control agreement with IBTX as of, and subject to the occurrence of, the Effective Time. The employment agreement provides that Mr. Brooks will serve as Chairman of the Board of Directors, President and Chief Executive Officer of the surviving entity and surviving bank for an initial five-year term following the Effective Time, subject to automatic one-year renewals thereafter.

Forward Looking Statements

This communication contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 regarding the financial condition, results of operations, business plans and the future performance of IBTX and TCBI.  Words such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “forecasts,” “intends,” “plans,” “projects,” “could,” “may,” “should,” “will” or other similar words and expressions are intended to identify these forward-looking statements.  These forward-looking statements are based on IBTX’s and TCBI’s current expectations and assumptions regarding IBTX’s and TCBI’s businesses, the economy, and other future conditions.  Because forward-looking statements relate to future results and occurrences, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks, and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Many possible events or factors could affect IBTX’s or TCBI’s future financial results and performance and could cause actual results or performance to differ materially from anticipated results or performance.  Such risks and uncertainties include, among others:  the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the right of one or both of the parties to terminate the definitive merger agreement between IBTX and TCBI, the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against IBTX or TCBI, delays in completing the transaction, the failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals (and the risk that such approvals may result in the imposition of conditions that could adversely affect the combined company or the expected benefits of the transaction) and shareholder approvals or to satisfy any of the other conditions to the transaction on a timely basis or at all, the possibility that the anticipated benefits of the transaction are not realized when expected or at all, including as a result of the impact of, or problems arising from, the integration of the two companies or as a result of the strength of the economy and competitive factors in the areas where IBTX and TCBI do business, the possibility that the transaction may be more expensive to complete than anticipated, including as a result of unexpected factors or events, diversion of management’s attention from ongoing business operations and opportunities, potential adverse reactions or changes to business or employee relationships, including those resulting from the announcement or completion of the transaction, the ability to complete the transaction and integration of IBTX and TCBI successfully, and the dilution caused by IBTX’s issuance of additional shares of its capital stock in connection with the transaction.  Except to the extent required by applicable law or regulation, each of IBTX and TCBI disclaims any obligation to update such factors or to publicly announce the results of any revisions to any of the forward-looking statements included herein to reflect future events or developments.  Further information regarding IBTX, TCBI and factors which could affect the forward-looking statements contained herein can be found in IBTX’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods ended March 31, 2019, June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2019, and its other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and in TCBI’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods ended March 31, 2019, June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2019, and its other filings with the SEC.

AGREEMENT AND PLAN OF MERGER
 
AGREEMENT AND PLAN OF MERGER, dated as of December 9, 2019 (this “Agreement”), by and between Texas Capital Bancshares, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“TCBI”), and Independent Bank Group, Inc., a Texas corporation (“IBTX”).
 
W I T N E S S E T H:
 
WHEREAS, the Boards of Directors of IBTX and TCBI have determined that it is in the best interests of their respective companies and their shareholders to consummate the strategic business combination transaction provided for herein, pursuant to which TCBI will, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, merge with and into IBTX (the “Merger”), so that IBTX is the surviving entity (hereinafter sometimes referred to in such capacity as the “Surviving Entity”) in the Merger;
 
WHEREAS, in furtherance thereof, the respective Boards of Directors of IBTX and TCBI have approved the Merger and this Agreement;
 
WHEREAS concurrently with the execution and delivery of this Agreement and as a condition to TCBI’s willingness to enter into this Agreement, TCBI and a certain stockholder of IBTX are entering into a voting agreement, pursuant to which, among other things, such stockholder has agreed to vote to approve this Agreement, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein;
 
WHEREAS, for federal income tax purposes, it is intended that the Merger shall qualify as a “reorganization” within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), and this Agreement is intended to be and is adopted as a plan of reorganization for purposes of Sections 354 and 361 of the Code; and
 
WHEREAS, the parties desire to make certain representations, warranties and agreements in connection with the Merger and also to prescribe certain conditions to the Merger.
 
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants, representations, warranties and agreements contained herein, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties agree as follows:
 
ARTICLE I

THE MERGER
 
1.1      The Merger.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, in accordance with the Texas Business Organizations Code (the “TBOC”) and the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”), at the Effective Time, TCBI shall merge with and into IBTX pursuant to this Agreement.  IBTX shall be the Surviving Entity in the Merger, and shall continue its corporate existence under the laws of the State of Texas.  Upon consummation of the Merger, the separate corporate existence of TCBI shall terminate.
 
-1-


1.2      Closing.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the closing of the Merger (the “Closing”) will take place by electronic exchange of documents at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on a date which shall be no later than three (3) business days after the satisfaction or waiver (subject to applicable law) of all the conditions set forth in Article VII hereof (other than those conditions that by their nature can only be satisfied at the Closing, but subject to the satisfaction or waiver thereof), unless another date, time or place is agreed to in writing by TCBI and IBTX.  The date on which the Closing occurs is referred to as the “Closing Date.”
 
1.3      Effective Time.  On or (if agreed by TCBI and IBTX) prior to the Closing Date, IBTX and TCBI, respectively, shall cause to be filed a certificate of merger with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the “Delaware Secretary”) and a certificate of merger with the Secretary of State of the State of Texas (the “Texas Secretary”) (collectively, the “Certificates of Merger”).  The Merger shall become effective at such time as specified in the Certificates of Merger in accordance with the relevant provisions of the TBOC and DGCL, or at such other time as shall be provided by applicable law (such time hereinafter referred to as the “Effective Time”).
 
1.4      Effects of the Merger.  At and after the Effective Time, the Merger shall have the effects set forth in the applicable provisions of the TBOC and the DGCL.
 
1.5      Conversion of TCBI Common Stock.  At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of IBTX, TCBI or the holder of any securities of IBTX or TCBI:
 
(a)       Subject to Section 2.2(e), each share of the common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of TCBI issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (the “TCBI Common Stock”), except for shares of TCBI Common Stock owned by TCBI or IBTX (in each case other than shares of TCBI Common Stock (i) held in trust accounts, managed accounts, mutual funds and the like, or otherwise held in a fiduciary or agency capacity that are beneficially owned by third parties or (ii) held, directly or indirectly, by TCBI or IBTX in respect of debts previously contracted), shall be converted into the right to receive 1.0311 shares (the “Exchange Ratio” and such shares the “Merger Consideration”) of the common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of IBTX (the “IBTX Common Stock”); it being understood that upon the Effective Time, pursuant to Section 1.6, the IBTX Common Stock, including the shares issued to former holders of TCBI Common Stock, shall be the common stock of the Surviving Entity.
 
(b)      All the shares of TCBI Common Stock converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration pursuant to this Article I shall no longer be outstanding and shall automatically be cancelled and shall cease to exist as of the Effective Time, and each certificate (each, an “Old Certificate,” it being understood that any reference herein to “Old Certificate” shall be deemed to include reference to book‑entry account statements relating to the ownership of shares of TCBI Common Stock) previously representing any such shares of TCBI Common Stock shall thereafter represent only the right to receive (i) a New Certificate representing the number of whole shares of IBTX Common Stock which such shares of TCBI Common Stock have been converted into the right to receive, (ii) cash in lieu of fractional shares which the shares of TCBI Common Stock represented by such Old Certificate have been converted into the right to receive pursuant to this Section 1.5 and Section 2.2(e), without any interest thereon and (iii) any dividends or distributions which the holder thereof has the right to receive pursuant to Section 2.2, in each case, without any interest thereon.  If, prior to the Effective Time, the outstanding shares of IBTX Common Stock or TCBI Common Stock shall have been increased, decreased, changed into or exchanged for a different number or kind of shares or securities as a result of a reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, stock dividend, stock split or reverse stock split, or there shall be any extraordinary dividend or distribution, an appropriate and proportionate adjustment shall be made to the Exchange Ratio to give IBTX and the holders of TCBI Common Stock the same economic effect as contemplated by this Agreement prior to such event; provided that nothing contained in this sentence shall be construed to permit TCBI or IBTX to take any action with respect to its securities or otherwise that is prohibited by the terms of this Agreement.

-2-

(c)       Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, at the Effective Time, all shares of TCBI Common Stock that are owned by TCBI or IBTX (in each case other than shares of TCBI Common Stock (i) held in trust accounts, managed accounts, mutual funds and the like, or otherwise held in a fiduciary or agency capacity that are beneficially owned by third parties or (ii) held, directly or indirectly, by TCBI or IBTX in respect of debts previously contracted) shall be cancelled and shall cease to exist and no IBTX Common Stock or other consideration shall be delivered in exchange therefor.
 
1.6      IBTX Stock.  At and after the Effective Time, each share of IBTX Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall remain an issued and outstanding share of common stock of the Surviving Entity and shall not be affected by the Merger.
 
1.7      TCBI Preferred Stock.  At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of IBTX, TCBI or the holder of any securities of IBTX or TCBI, each share of 6.50% Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A, par value $0.01 per share, of TCBI (“TCBI Preferred Stock”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall automatically be converted into the right to receive a share of a newly created series of preferred stock of IBTX having substantially the same terms as the TCBI Preferred Stock (taking into account that TCBI will not be the surviving entity in the Merger and any adjustment to the right of optional redemption by IBTX that is reasonably necessary to obtain Tier 1 Capital treatment from the Federal Reserve Board for such preferred stock) (all shares of such newly created series, collectively, the “New IBTX Preferred Stock”) and, upon such conversion, the TCBI Preferred Stock shall no longer be outstanding and shall automatically be cancelled and shall cease to exist as of the Effective Time.
 
1.8      Treatment of TCBI Equity Awards.
 
(a)       At the Effective Time, each stock appreciation right to purchase shares of TCBI Common Stock (a “TCBI SAR”) that is outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, shall, automatically and without any required action on part of the holder thereof, be cancelled, with the holder of such TCBI SAR becoming entitled to receive, in full satisfaction of the rights of the holder with respect thereto, the Merger Consideration in respect of each Net Share (as defined below) covered by such TCBI SAR, less applicable Tax withholding, which shall be delivered as soon as reasonably practicable following the Closing Date and in no event later than ten (10) business days following the Closing Date.  For purposes of this Section 1.8(a):

-3-

(i)         “Net Share” means, with respect to a TCBI SAR, the quotient obtained by dividing (A) the product of (i) the excess, if any, of the Per Share Cash Equivalent Consideration over the per share exercise price of such TCBI SAR, multiplied by (ii) the number of shares of TCBI Common Stock subject to such TCBI SAR immediately prior to the Effective Time, by (B) the Per Share Cash Equivalent Consideration.

(ii)        “Per Share Cash Equivalent Consideration” means the product (rounded to the nearest cent) obtained by multiplying (A) the Exchange Ratio by (B) the average of the closing-sale prices of IBTX Common Stock on the NASDAQ Stock Market, Inc. Global Select Market System (the “NASDAQ”) as reported by The Wall Street Journal for the consecutive period of five (5) full trading days ending on the day preceding the Closing Date.

(b)      Except as otherwise agreed between IBTX and TCBI, at the Effective Time, each award in respect of a share of TCBI Common Stock subject to vesting, repurchase or other lapse restriction granted to a non-employee director of the Board of Directors of TCBI in respect of such service (a “TCBI Restricted Stock Award”) that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, automatically and without any required action on the part of the holder thereof, immediately and fully vest and be converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration, less applicable Tax withholding, which shall be delivered as soon as reasonably practicable following the Closing Date and in no event later than ten (10) business days following the Closing Date.
 
(c)       Except as otherwise agreed between IBTX and TCBI, at the Effective Time, each restricted stock unit award in respect of shares of TCBI Common Stock (a “TCBI RSU Award”) that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, automatically and without any required action on the part of the holder thereof, immediately and fully vest and be converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration in respect of the number of shares of TCBI Common Stock subject to such TCBI RSU Award immediately prior to the Effective Time, less applicable Tax withholding, which shall be delivered as soon as reasonably practicable following the Closing Date and in no event later than ten (10) business days following the Closing Date; provided that, any cash-settled TCBI RSU Award shall be converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the Per Share Cash Equivalent Consideration in respect of the number of shares of TCBI Common Stock subject to such TCBI RSU Award immediately prior to the Effective Time, less applicable Tax withholding; provided further, with respect to any TCBI RSU Award that constitutes “deferred compensation” subject to Section 409A of the Code, settlement or payment of such award shall be made on the earliest permissible date that such delivery would not trigger a Tax or penalty under Section 409A of the Code.
 
-4-

(d)      Except as otherwise agreed between IBTX and TCBI, at the Effective Time, each performance unit award in respect of shares of TCBI Common Stock (a “TCBI Performance Unit Award”) that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, automatically and without any required action on the part of the holder thereof, immediately vest (based on the level of achievement of the applicable performance goals set forth below) and be converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration in respect of the number of shares of TCBI Common Stock subject to such TCBI Performance Unit Award immediately prior to the Effective Time as determined pursuant to the following sentence, less applicable Tax withholding which shall be delivered as soon as reasonably practicable following the Closing Date and in no event later than ten (10) business days following the Closing Date; provided, that any cash-settled TCBI Performance Unit Award shall be converted into the right to receive an amount in cash equal to the Per Share Cash Equivalent Consideration in respect of the number of shares of TCBI Common Stock subject to such TCBI Performance Unit Award immediately prior to the Effective Time (based on the level of achievement of the applicable performance goals set forth below), less applicable Tax withholding; provided further, with respect to any TCBI Performance Unit Award that constitutes “deferred compensation” subject to Section 409A of the Code, settlement of such award shall be made on the earliest permissible date that such delivery would not trigger a Tax or penalty under Section 409A of the Code.  For purposes of this Section 1.8(d), the number of shares of TCBI Common Stock subject to TCBI Performance Unit Awards that shall vest and be earned shall be determined based on the greater of (i) the level of actual performance achieved prior to the Effective Time as reasonably determined by the human resources committee of the Board of Directors of TCBI (the “TCBI Compensation Committee”) using the information available through the latest practicable date prior to the Effective Time and otherwise consistent with past practice, and (ii) target level performance.
 
(e)       The TCBI Board of Directors (or appropriate committee thereof) shall take such action as is necessary to ensure that (i) the “offering period” in effect as of the date hereof under the TCBI 2006 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “ESPP”) shall be the last purchase period under the ESPP, (ii) no new purchase period shall commence after the date hereof and prior to the Effective Time, (iii) participation in the ESPP shall be limited to those employees who were participants on the date hereof, (iv) current participants may not increase their payroll deduction election or purchase elections from those in effect on the date hereof, and (v) effective as of the Effective Time, the ESPP shall terminate.
 
(f)       Prior to the Effective Time, TCBI, the Board of Directors of TCBI and the TCBI Compensation Committee, as applicable, shall adopt any resolutions and take any actions that are necessary or appropriate to effectuate the provisions of this Section 1.8.
 
1.9      Certificate of Formation of Surviving Entity.  At the Effective Time, the certificate of formation of IBTX, as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time, as amended as set forth in Exhibit A (the “IBTX Certificate Amendment”), shall be the certificate of formation of the Surviving Entity until thereafter amended in accordance with applicable law.
 
1.10    Bylaws of Surviving Entity.  At the Effective Time, the bylaws of IBTX, as amended as set forth in Exhibit B (such amendment, the “IBTX Bylaw Amendment”), shall be the bylaws of the Surviving Entity until thereafter amended in accordance with applicable law.

-5-

1.11    Tax Consequences.  It is intended that the Merger shall qualify as a “reorganization” within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Code, and that this Agreement is intended to be and is adopted as a plan of reorganization for the purposes of Sections 354 and 361 of the Code.
 
1.12    Bank Merger.  Immediately following the Merger, Texas Capital Bank, a federally-chartered national association and wholly-owned Subsidiary of TCBI (“TCBI Subsidiary Bank”), will merge with and into Independent Bank, a Texas-chartered state bank and wholly-owned Subsidiary of IBTX (“IBTX Subsidiary Bank”) (the “Bank Merger”).  IBTX Subsidiary Bank shall be the surviving entity in the Bank Merger and, following the Bank Merger, the separate corporate existence of TCBI Subsidiary Bank shall cease.  Promptly after the date of this Agreement, IBTX Subsidiary Bank and TCBI Subsidiary Bank will enter into an agreement and plan of merger in form and substance agreed by IBTX and TCBI, which shall be customary for mergers similar to the Bank Merger (the “Bank Merger Agreement”).  Each of IBTX and TCBI shall approve the Bank Merger Agreement and the Bank Merger as the sole shareholder of IBTX Subsidiary Bank and TCBI Subsidiary Bank, respectively, and IBTX and TCBI shall, and shall cause IBTX Subsidiary Bank and TCBI Subsidiary Bank, respectively, to, execute certificates or articles of merger and such other documents and certificates as are necessary to make the Bank Merger effective (“Bank Merger Certificates”) immediately following the Effective Time.  The Bank Merger shall become effective at such time and date as specified in the Bank Merger Agreement in accordance with applicable law, or at such other time as shall be provided by applicable law.
 
ARTICLE II

EXCHANGE OF SHARES
 
2.1      IBTX to Make Consideration Available.  At or prior to the Effective Time, IBTX shall deposit, or shall cause to be deposited, with a bank or trust company mutually agreed upon by IBTX and TCBI (the “Exchange Agent”), for exchange in accordance with this Article II for the benefit of the holders of Old Certificates (which for purposes of this Article II shall be deemed to include certificates or book-entry account statements representing shares of TCBI Preferred Stock), certificates or, at IBTX’s option, evidence in book-entry form, representing shares of IBTX Common Stock or New IBTX Preferred Stock to be issued pursuant to Section 1.5 and Section 1.7, respectively (collectively, referred to herein as “New Certificates”), and cash in lieu of any fractional shares to be paid pursuant to Section 2.2(e) (such cash and New Certificates, together with any dividends or distributions with respect to shares of IBTX Common Stock or New IBTX Preferred Stock payable in accordance with Section 2.2(b), being hereinafter referred to as the “Exchange Fund”).
 
-6-

2.2      Exchange of Shares.
 
(a)       As promptly as practicable after the Effective Time, but in no event later than ten (10) days thereafter, IBTX and TCBI shall cause the Exchange Agent to mail to each holder of record of one or more Old Certificates representing shares of TCBI Common Stock or TCBI Preferred Stock immediately prior to the Effective Time that have been converted at the Effective Time into the right to receive IBTX Common Stock or New IBTX Preferred Stock, as applicable, pursuant to Article I, a letter of transmittal (which shall specify that delivery shall be effected, and risk of loss and title to the Old Certificates shall pass, only upon proper delivery of the Old Certificates to the Exchange Agent) and instructions for use in effecting the surrender of the Old Certificates in exchange for New Certificates representing the number of whole shares of IBTX Common Stock and any cash in lieu of fractional shares or shares of New IBTX Preferred Stock, as applicable, which the shares of TCBI Common Stock or TCBI Preferred Stock represented by such Old Certificate or Old Certificates shall have been converted into the right to receive pursuant to this Agreement as well as any dividends or distributions to be paid pursuant to Section 2.2(b).  Upon proper surrender of an Old Certificate or Old Certificates for exchange and cancellation to the Exchange Agent, together with such properly completed letter of transmittal, duly executed, the holder of such Old Certificate or Old Certificates shall be entitled to receive in exchange therefor, as applicable, (i) (A) a New Certificate representing that number of whole shares of IBTX Common Stock to which such holder of TCBI Common Stock shall have become entitled pursuant to the provisions of Article I and (B) a check representing the amount of (x) any cash in lieu of fractional shares which such holder has the right to receive in respect of the Old Certificate or Old Certificates surrendered pursuant to the provisions of this Article II and (y) any dividends or distributions which the holder thereof has the right to receive pursuant to Section 2.2(b) or (ii) (A) a New Certificate representing that number of shares of New IBTX Preferred Stock to which such holder of TCBI Preferred Stock shall have become entitled pursuant to the provisions of Article I, and (B) a check representing the amount of any dividends or distributions which the holder thereof has the right to receive pursuant to Section 2.2(b), and the Old Certificate or Old Certificates so surrendered shall forthwith be cancelled.  No interest will be paid or accrued on any cash in lieu of fractional shares or dividends or distributions payable to holders of Old Certificates.  Until surrendered as contemplated by this Section 2.2, each Old Certificate shall be deemed at any time after the Effective Time to represent only the right to receive, upon surrender, the number of whole shares of IBTX Common Stock or shares of New IBTX Preferred Stock which the shares of TCBI Common Stock or TCBI Preferred Stock, as applicable, represented by such Old Certificate have been converted into the right to receive and any cash in lieu of fractional shares or in respect of dividends or distributions as contemplated by this Section 2.2.

(b)       No dividends or other distributions declared with respect to IBTX Common Stock or New IBTX Preferred Stock shall be paid to the holder of any unsurrendered Old Certificate until the holder thereof shall surrender such Old Certificate in accordance with this Article II.  After the surrender of an Old Certificate in accordance with this Article II, the record holder thereof shall be entitled to receive any such dividends or other distributions, without any interest thereon, which theretofore had become payable with respect to the whole shares of IBTX Common Stock or shares of New IBTX Preferred Stock that the shares of TCBI Common Stock or TCBI Preferred Stock, as applicable, represented by such Old Certificate have been converted into the right to receive.
 
(c)       If any New Certificate representing shares of IBTX Common Stock or New IBTX Preferred Stock is to be issued in a name other than that in which the Old Certificate or Old Certificates surrendered in exchange therefor is or are registered, it shall be a condition of the issuance thereof that the Old Certificate or Old Certificates so surrendered shall be properly endorsed (or accompanied by an appropriate instrument of transfer) and otherwise in proper form for transfer, and that the person requesting such exchange shall pay to the Exchange Agent in advance any transfer or other similar Taxes required by reason of the issuance of a New Certificate representing shares of IBTX Common Stock or New IBTX Preferred Stock in any name other than that of the registered holder of the Old Certificate or Old Certificates surrendered, or required for any other reason, or shall establish to the satisfaction of the Exchange Agent that such Tax has been paid or is not payable.
 
-7-

(d)       After the Effective Time, there shall be no transfers on the stock transfer books of TCBI of the shares of TCBI Common Stock or TCBI Preferred Stock that were issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time.  If, after the Effective Time, Old Certificates representing such shares are presented for transfer to the Exchange Agent, they shall be cancelled and exchanged for New Certificates representing shares of IBTX Common Stock or New IBTX Preferred Stock, as applicable, as provided in this Article II.
 
(e)       Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no New Certificates or scrip representing fractional shares of IBTX Common Stock shall be issued upon the surrender for exchange of Old Certificates (or in satisfaction of the obligations set forth in Section 1.8 in respect of TCBI Equity Awards), no dividend or distribution with respect to IBTX Common Stock shall be payable on or with respect to any fractional share, and such fractional share interests shall not entitle the owner thereof to vote or to any other rights of a shareholder of IBTX.  In lieu of the issuance of any such fractional share, IBTX shall pay to each former holder of TCBI Common Stock or any TCBI Equity Awards who otherwise would be entitled to receive such fractional share an amount in cash (rounded to the nearest cent) determined by multiplying (i) the average of the closing-sale prices of IBTX Common Stock on the NASDAQ as reported by The Wall Street Journal for the consecutive period of five (5) full trading days ending on the day preceding the Closing Date by (ii) the fraction of a share (after taking into account all shares of TCBI Common Stock held by such holder immediately prior to the Effective Time and rounded to the nearest one-thousandth when expressed in decimal form) of IBTX Common Stock which such holder would otherwise be entitled to receive pursuant to Section 1.5 or Section 1.8.  The parties acknowledge that payment of such cash consideration in lieu of issuing fractional shares is not separately bargained-for consideration, but merely represents a mechanical rounding off for purposes of avoiding the expense and inconvenience that would otherwise be caused by the issuance of fractional shares.
 
(f)       Any portion of the Exchange Fund that remains unclaimed by the shareholders of TCBI for twelve (12) months after the Effective Time shall be paid to the Surviving Entity.  Any former holders of TCBI Common Stock or TCBI Preferred Stock who have not theretofore complied with this Article II shall thereafter look only to the Surviving Entity for payment of the shares of IBTX Common Stock, cash in lieu of any fractional shares and any unpaid dividends and distributions on the IBTX Common Stock deliverable in respect of each former share of TCBI Common Stock such holder holds as determined pursuant to this Agreement, or the shares of New IBTX Preferred Stock and any unpaid dividends and distributions on the New IBTX Preferred Stock deliverable in respect of each former share of TCBI Preferred Stock such holder holds as determined pursuant to this Agreement, in each case, without any interest thereon.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, none of IBTX, TCBI, the Surviving Entity, the Exchange Agent or any other person shall be liable to any former holder of shares of TCBI Common Stock or TCBI Preferred Stock for any amount delivered in good faith to a public official pursuant to applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar laws.

-8-

(g)      IBTX shall be entitled to deduct and withhold, or cause the Exchange Agent to deduct and withhold, from any cash in lieu of fractional shares of IBTX Common Stock, cash dividends or distributions payable pursuant to this Section 2.2 or any other amounts otherwise payable pursuant to this Agreement to any holder of TCBI Common Stock, TCBI Preferred Stock or TCBI Equity Awards, such amounts as it is required to deduct and withhold with respect to the making of such payment under the Code or any provision of state, local or foreign Tax law.  To the extent that amounts are so withheld by IBTX or the Exchange Agent, as the case may be, and paid over to the appropriate governmental authority, the withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to the holder of TCBI Common Stock, TCBI Preferred Stock or TCBI Equity Awards in respect of which the deduction and withholding was made by IBTX or the Exchange Agent, as the case may be.
 
(h)       In the event any Old Certificate shall have been lost, stolen or destroyed, upon the making of an affidavit of that fact by the person claiming such Old Certificate to be lost, stolen or destroyed and, if required by IBTX or the Exchange Agent, the posting by such person of a bond in such amount as IBTX or the Exchange Agent may determine is reasonably necessary as indemnity against any claim that may be made against it with respect to such Old Certificate, the Exchange Agent will issue in exchange for such lost, stolen or destroyed Old Certificate the shares of IBTX Common Stock and any cash in lieu of fractional shares, or the shares of New IBTX Preferred Stock, as applicable, deliverable in respect thereof pursuant to this Agreement.
 
ARTICLE III

REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF TCBI
 
Except (a) as disclosed in the disclosure schedule delivered by TCBI to IBTX concurrently herewith (the “TCBI Disclosure Schedule”); provided, that (i) no such item is required to be set forth as an exception to a representation or warranty if its absence would not result in the related representation or warranty being deemed untrue or incorrect, (ii) the mere inclusion of an item in the TCBI Disclosure Schedule as an exception to a representation or warranty shall not be deemed an admission by TCBI that such item represents a material exception or fact, event or circumstance or that such item would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect and (iii) any disclosures made with respect to a section of Article III shall be deemed to qualify (1) any other section of Article III specifically referenced or cross-referenced and (2) other sections of Article III to the extent it is reasonably apparent on its face (notwithstanding the absence of a specific cross reference) from a reading of the disclosure that such disclosure applies to such other sections or (b) as disclosed in any TCBI Reports filed by TCBI since December 31, 2015 and prior to the date hereof (but disregarding risk factor disclosures contained under the heading “Risk Factors,” or disclosures of risks set forth in any “forward-looking statements” disclaimer or any other statements that are similarly non-specific or cautionary, predictive or forward-looking in nature), TCBI hereby represents and warrants to IBTX as follows:

4.1      Corporate Organization.
 
(a)       IBTX is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Texas and is a bank holding company duly registered under the BHC Act.  IBTX has the corporate power and authority to own, lease or operate all of its properties and assets and to carry on its business as it is now being conducted.  IBTX is duly licensed or qualified to do business and in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the nature of the business conducted by it or the character or location of the properties and assets owned, leased or operated by it makes such licensing, qualification or standing necessary, except where the failure to be so licensed or qualified or to be in good standing would not, either individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on IBTX.  True and complete copies of the amended and restated certificate of formation of IBTX, as amended (the “IBTX Certificate of Formation”) and the amended and restated bylaws of IBTX (the “IBTX Bylaws”), in each case as in effect as of the date of this Agreement, have previously been made available by IBTX to TCBI.
 
(b)       Except as would not, either individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on IBTX, each Subsidiary of IBTX (a “IBTX Subsidiary”) (i) is duly organized and validly existing under the laws of its jurisdiction of organization, (ii) is duly licensed or qualified to do business and, where such concept is recognized under applicable law, in good standing in all jurisdictions (whether federal, state, local or foreign) where its ownership, leasing or operation of property or the conduct of its business requires it to be so licensed or qualified or in good standing and (iii) has all requisite corporate power and authority to own, lease or operate its properties and assets and to carry on its business as now conducted.  There are no restrictions on the ability of IBTX or any Subsidiary of IBTX to pay dividends or distributions except, in the case of IBTX or a Subsidiary that is a regulated entity, for restrictions on dividends or distributions generally applicable to all similarly regulated entities.  The deposit accounts of each Subsidiary of IBTX that is an insured depository institution are insured by the FDIC through the Deposit Insurance Fund (as defined in Section 3(y) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act of 1950) to the fullest extent permitted by law, all premiums and assessments required to be paid in connection therewith have been paid when due, and no proceedings for the termination of such insurance are pending or threatened.  Section 4.1(b) of the IBTX Disclosure Schedule sets forth a true and complete list of all Subsidiaries of IBTX that would constitute “significant subsidiaries” within the meaning of Rule 1-02 of Regulation S-X of the SEC as of the date hereof.  There is no person whose results of operations, cash flows, changes in shareholders’ equity or financial position are consolidated in the financial statements of IBTX other than the IBTX Subsidiaries.

(b)       Except as would not, either individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on IBTX, IBTX owns, directly or indirectly, all the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock or other equity ownership interests of each of the IBTX Subsidiaries, free and clear of any Liens, and all such shares or equity ownership interests are duly authorized and validly issued and are fully paid, nonassessable (except, with respect to Subsidiaries that are depository institutions, as provided under 12 U.S.C. § 55 or any comparable provision of applicable state law) and free of preemptive rights, with no personal liability attaching to the ownership thereof.

4.5      Reports.  IBTX and each of its Subsidiaries have timely filed (or furnished) all reports, forms, correspondence, registrations and statements, together with any amendments required to be made with respect thereto, that they were required to file (or furnish, as applicable) since January 1, 2017 with any Regulatory Agencies, including any report, form, correspondence, registration or statement required to be filed (or furnished, as applicable) pursuant to the laws, rules or regulations of the United States, any state, any foreign entity, or any Regulatory Agency, and have paid all fees and assessments due and payable in connection therewith, except where the failure to file (or furnish, as applicable) such report, form, correspondence, registration or statement or to pay such fees and assessments, either individually or in the aggregate, would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on IBTX.  Subject to Section 9.14, except for normal examinations conducted by a Regulatory Agency in the ordinary course of business of IBTX and its Subsidiaries, no Regulatory Agency has initiated or has pending any proceeding or, to the knowledge of IBTX, investigation into the business or operations of IBTX or any of its Subsidiaries since January 1, 2017, except where such proceedings or investigations would not reasonably be expected to have, either individually or in the aggregate, a Material Adverse Effect on IBTX.  Subject to Section 9.14, there (i) is no unresolved violation, criticism, or exception by any Regulatory Agency with respect to any report or statement relating to any examinations or inspections of IBTX or any of its Subsidiaries and (ii) has been no formal or informal inquiries by, or disagreements or disputes with, any Regulatory Agency with respect to the business, operations, policies or procedures of IBTX or any of its Subsidiaries since January 1, 2017, in each case, which would reasonably be expected to have, either individually or in the aggregate, a Material Adverse Effect on IBTX.

(b)      Except as would not reasonably be expected to have, either individually or in the aggregate, a Material Adverse Effect on IBTX, neither IBTX nor any of its Subsidiaries has any liability of any nature whatsoever (whether absolute, accrued, contingent or otherwise and whether due or to become due), except for those liabilities that are reflected or reserved against on the consolidated balance sheet of IBTX included in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2019 (including any notes thereto) and for liabilities incurred in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice since September 30, 2019, or in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby.
 
(c)       The records, systems, controls, data and information of IBTX and its Subsidiaries are recorded, stored, maintained and operated under means (including any electronic, mechanical or photographic process, whether computerized or not) that are under the exclusive ownership of IBTX or its Subsidiaries or accountants (including all means of access thereto and therefrom), except for any non-exclusive ownership that would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on IBTX.  IBTX (x) has implemented and maintains disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) of the Exchange Act) to ensure that material information relating to IBTX, including its Subsidiaries, is made known to the chief executive officer and the chief financial officer of IBTX by others within those entities as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures and to make the certifications required by the Exchange Act and Sections 302 and 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and (y) has disclosed, based on its most recent evaluation prior to the date hereof, to IBTX’s outside auditors and the audit committee of IBTX’s Board of Directors (i) any significant deficiencies and material weaknesses in the design or operation of internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) of the Exchange Act) which are reasonably likely to adversely affect IBTX’s ability to record, process, summarize and report financial information, and (ii) any fraud, whether or not material, that involves management or other employees who have a significant role in IBTX’s internal controls over financial reporting.  These disclosures were made in writing by management to IBTX’s auditors and audit committee and true, correct and complete copies of such disclosures have previously been made available by IBTX to TCBI.  There is no reason to believe that IBTX’s outside auditors and its chief executive officer and chief financial officer will not be able to give the certifications and attestations required pursuant to the rules and regulations adopted pursuant to Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, without qualification, when next due.

-34-

6.3      Shareholders’ Approvals.  Each of IBTX and TCBI shall call a meeting of its shareholders (the “IBTX Meeting” and the “TCBI Meeting,” respectively) to be held as soon as reasonably practicable after the S-4 is declared effective, for the purpose of obtaining (a) the Requisite TCBI Vote and the Requisite IBTX Vote required in connection with this Agreement and the Merger and (b) if so desired and mutually agreed, a vote upon other matters of the type customarily brought before a meeting of shareholders in connection with the approval of a merger agreement or the transactions contemplated thereby, and each of TCBI and IBTX shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause such meetings to occur as soon as reasonably practicable and on the same date.  Each of IBTX and TCBI and their respective Boards of Directors shall use its reasonable best efforts to obtain from the shareholders of IBTX and TCBI, as applicable, the Requisite IBTX Vote and the Requisite TCBI Vote, as applicable, including by communicating to the respective shareholders of IBTX and TCBI its recommendation (and including such recommendation in the Joint Proxy Statement) that, in the case of IBTX, the shareholders of IBTX approve this Agreement (the “IBTX Board Recommendation”), and in the case of TCBI, that the shareholders of TCBI approve this Agreement (the “TCBI Board Recommendation”), IBTX and each of IBTX and TCBI and their respective Boards of Directors shall not (i) withhold, withdraw, modify or qualify in a manner adverse to the other party the IBTX Board Recommendation, in the case of IBTX, or the TCBI Board Recommendation, in the case of TCBI, (ii) fail to make the IBTX Board Recommendation, in the case of IBTX, or the TCBI Board Recommendation, in the case of TCBI, in the Joint Proxy Statement, (iii) adopt, approve, recommend or endorse an Acquisition Proposal or publicly announce an intention to adopt, approve, recommend or endorse an Acquisition Proposal, (iv) fail to publicly and without qualification (A) recommend against any Acquisition Proposal or (B) reaffirm the IBTX Board Recommendation, in the case of IBTX, or the TCBI Board Recommendation, in the case of TCBI, in each case within ten (10) business days (or such fewer number of days as remains prior to the IBTX Meeting or the TCBI Meeting, as applicable) after an Acquisition Proposal is made public or any request by the other party to do so, or (v) publicly propose to do any of the foregoing (any of the foregoing a “Recommendation Change”).  However, subject to Section 8.1 and Section 8.2, if the Board of Directors of IBTX or TCBI, after receiving the advice of its outside counsel and, with respect to financial matters, its financial advisors, determines in good faith that it would more likely than not result in a violation of its fiduciary duties under applicable law to make or continue to make the IBTX Board Recommendation or the TCBI Board Recommendation, as applicable, such Board of Directors may, in the case of IBTX, prior to the receipt of the Requisite IBTX Vote, and in the case of TCBI, prior to the receipt of the Requisite TCBI Vote, submit this Agreement to its shareholders without recommendation (although the resolutions approving this Agreement as of the date hereof may not be rescinded or amended), in which event such Board of Directors may communicate the basis for its lack of a recommendation to its shareholders in the Joint Proxy Statement or an appropriate amendment or supplement thereto to the extent required by law; provided that such Board of Directors may not take any actions under this sentence unless it (A) gives the other party at least three (3) business days’ prior written notice of its intention to take such action and a reasonable description of the event or circumstances giving rise to its determination to take such action (including, in the event such action is taken in response to an Acquisition Proposal, the latest material terms and conditions and the identity of the third party in any such Acquisition Proposal, or any amendment or modification thereof, or describe in reasonable detail such other event or circumstances) and (B) at the end of such notice period, takes into account any amendment or modification to this Agreement proposed by the other party and, after receiving the advice of its outside counsel and, with respect to financial matters, its financial advisors, determines in good faith that it would nevertheless more likely than not result in a violation of its fiduciary duties under applicable law to make or continue to make the IBTX Board Recommendation or TCBI Board Recommendation, as the case may be.  Any material amendment to any Acquisition Proposal will be deemed to be a new Acquisition Proposal for purposes of this Section 6.3 and will require a new notice period as referred to in this Section 6.3.  IBTX or TCBI shall adjourn or postpone the IBTX Meeting or the TCBI Meeting, as the case may be, if, as of the time for which such meeting is originally scheduled there are insufficient shares of IBTX Common Stock or TCBI Common Stock, as the case may be, represented (either in person or by proxy) to constitute a quorum necessary to conduct the business of such meeting, or if on the date of such meeting TCBI or IBTX, as applicable, has not received proxies representing a sufficient number of shares necessary to obtain the Requisite TCBI Vote or the Requisite IBTX Vote, and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including the immediately preceding sentence), TCBI or IBTX, as applicable, shall continue to use reasonable best efforts to solicit proxies from its shareholders in order to obtain the Requisite TCBI Vote or the Requisite IBTX Vote, respectively.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, but subject to the obligation to adjourn or postpone such meeting as set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, unless this Agreement has been terminated in accordance with its terms, (x) the IBTX Meeting shall be convened and this Agreement shall be submitted to the shareholders of IBTX at the IBTX Meeting and (y) the TCBI Meeting shall be convened and this Agreement shall be submitted to the shareholders of TCBI at the TCBI Meeting, and nothing contained herein shall be deemed to relieve either IBTX or TCBI of such obligation.

(a)       From and after the Effective Time, the Surviving Entity shall indemnify and hold harmless and shall advance expenses as incurred, in each case to the extent (subject to applicable law) such persons are indemnified as of the date of this Agreement by TCBI pursuant to the TCBI Certificate of Incorporation, the TCBI Bylaws, the governing or organizational documents of any Subsidiary of TCBI and any indemnification agreements in existence as of the date hereof and disclosed in Section 6.7(a) of the TCBI Disclosure Schedule, each present and former director, officer or employee of TCBI and its Subsidiaries (collectively, the “TCBI Indemnified Parties”) against any costs or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines, losses, damages or liabilities incurred in connection with any threatened or actual claim, action, suit, proceeding or investigation, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, whether arising before or after the Effective Time, arising out of the fact that such person is or was a director, officer or employee of TCBI or any of its Subsidiaries and pertaining to matters existing or occurring at or prior to the Effective Time, including the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; provided, that in the case of advancement of expenses, any TCBI Indemnified Party to whom expenses are advanced provides an undertaking to repay such advances if it is ultimately determined that such TCBI Indemnified Party is not entitled to indemnification.

(c)       The obligations of the Surviving Entity, TCBI or IBTX under this Section 6.7 shall not be terminated or modified after the Effective Time in a manner so as to adversely affect any TCBI Indemnified Party without the prior written consent of the affected TCBI Indemnified Party.

6.12    Acquisition Proposals.

(a)       Each party agrees that it will not, and will cause each of its Subsidiaries and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, advisors and representatives (collectively, “Representatives”) not to, directly or indirectly, (i) initiate, solicit, knowingly encourage or knowingly facilitate any inquiries or proposals with respect to any Acquisition Proposal, (ii) engage or participate in any negotiations with any person concerning any Acquisition Proposal, (iii) provide any confidential or nonpublic information or data to, have or participate in any discussions with any person relating to any Acquisition Proposal or (iv) unless this Agreement has been terminated in accordance with its terms, approve or enter into any term sheet, letter of intent, commitment, memorandum of understanding, agreement in principle, acquisition agreement, merger agreement or other agreement (whether written or oral, binding or nonbinding) (other than a confidentiality agreement referred to and entered into in accordance with this Section 6.12) in connection with or relating to any Acquisition Proposal.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that after the date of this Agreement and prior to the receipt of the Requisite IBTX Vote, in the case or IBTX, or the Requisite TCBI Vote, in the case of TCBI, a party receives an unsolicited bona fide written Acquisition Proposal, such party may, and may permit its Subsidiaries and its and its Subsidiaries’ Representatives to, furnish or cause to be furnished confidential or nonpublic information or data and participate in such negotiations or discussions with the person making the Acquisition Proposal if the Board of Directors of such party concludes in good faith (after receiving the advice of its outside counsel, and with respect to financial matters, its financial advisors) that failure to take such actions would be more likely than not to result in a violation of its fiduciary duties under applicable law; provided, that, prior to furnishing any confidential or nonpublic information permitted to be provided pursuant to this sentence, such party shall have entered into a confidentiality agreement with the person making such Acquisition Proposal on terms no less favorable to it than the Confidentiality Agreement, which confidentiality agreement shall not provide such person with any exclusive right to negotiate with such party.  Each party will, and will cause its Representatives to, immediately cease and cause to be terminated any activities, discussions or negotiations conducted before the date of this Agreement with any person other than TCBI or IBTX, as applicable, with respect to any Acquisition Proposal.  Each party will promptly (within twenty-four (24) hours) advise the other party following receipt of any Acquisition Proposal or any inquiry which could reasonably be expected to lead to an Acquisition Proposal, and the substance thereof (including the terms and conditions of and the identity of the person making such inquiry or Acquisition Proposal), will provide the other party with an unredacted copy of any such Acquisition Proposal and any draft agreements, proposals or other materials received in connection with any such inquiry or Acquisition Proposal, and will keep the other party apprised of any related developments, discussions and negotiations on a current basis, including any amendments to or revisions of the terms of such inquiry or Acquisition Proposal.  Each party shall use its reasonable best efforts to enforce any existing confidentiality or standstill agreements to which it or any of its Subsidiaries is a party in accordance with the terms thereof.  As used in this Agreement, “Acquisition Proposal” shall mean, with respect to IBTX or TCBI, as applicable, other than the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, any offer, proposal or inquiry relating to, or any third-party indication of interest in, (i) any acquisition or purchase, direct or indirect, of twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the consolidated assets of a party and its Subsidiaries or twenty-five percent (25%) or more of any class of equity or voting securities of a party or its Subsidiaries whose assets, individually or in the aggregate, constitute twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the consolidated assets of the party, (ii) any tender offer (including a self-tender offer) or exchange offer that, if consummated, would result in such third party beneficially owning twenty-five percent (25%) or more of any class of equity or voting securities of a party or its Subsidiaries whose assets, individually or in the aggregate, constitute twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the consolidated assets of the party, or (iii) a merger, consolidation, share exchange, business combination, reorganization, recapitalization, liquidation, dissolution or other similar transaction involving a party or its Subsidiaries whose assets, individually or in the aggregate, constitute twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the consolidated assets of the party.

-61-

(b)       Nothing contained in this Agreement shall prevent a party or its Board of Directors from complying with Rule 14d-9 and Rule 14e-2 under the Exchange Act with respect to an Acquisition Proposal; provided, that such rules will in no way eliminate or modify the effect that any action pursuant to such rules would otherwise have under this Agreement.

6.13    Public Announcements.  TCBI and IBTX agree that the initial press release with respect to the execution and delivery of this Agreement shall be a release mutually agreed to by the parties.  Thereafter, each of the parties agrees that no public release or announcement or statement concerning this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby shall be issued by any party without the prior written consent of the other party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), except (i) as required by applicable law or the rules or regulations of any applicable Governmental Entity or stock exchange to which the relevant party is subject, in which case the party required to make the release or announcement shall consult with the other party about, and allow the other party reasonable time to comment on, such release or announcement in advance of such issuance or (ii) for such releases, announcements or statements that are consistent with other such releases, announcement or statements made after the date of this Agreement in compliance with this Section 6.13.

-62-

6.14    Change of Method.  TCBI and IBTX shall be empowered, upon their mutual agreement, at any time prior to the Effective Time, to change the method or structure of effecting the combination of TCBI and IBTX (including the provisions of Article I), if and to the extent they both deem such change to be necessary, appropriate or desirable; provided, however, that no such change shall (i) alter or change the Exchange Ratio or the number of shares of IBTX Common Stock received by holders of TCBI Common Stock in exchange for each share of TCBI Common Stock, (ii) adversely affect the Tax treatment of TCBI’s shareholders or IBTX’s shareholders pursuant to this Agreement, (iii) adversely affect the Tax treatment of TCBI or IBTX pursuant to this Agreement or (iv) materially impede or delay the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement in a timely manner.  The parties agree to reflect any such change in an appropriate amendment to this Agreement executed by both parties in accordance with Section 9.1.

6.15    Restructuring Efforts.  If either TCBI or IBTX shall have failed to obtain the Requisite TCBI Vote or the Requisite IBTX Vote at the duly convened TCBI Meeting or IBTX Meeting, as applicable, or any adjournment or postponement thereof, each of the parties shall in good faith use its reasonable best efforts to negotiate a restructuring of the transactions provided for herein (it being understood that neither party shall have any obligation to alter or change any material terms, including the amount or kind of the consideration to be issued to holders of the capital stock of TCBI as provided for in this Agreement, or any term that would adversely affect the tax treatment of the transactions contemplated hereby, in a manner adverse to such party or its shareholders) and/or resubmit this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby (or as restructured pursuant to this Section 6.15) to its respective shareholders for approval.

6.16    Takeover Restrictions.  None of TCBI, IBTX or their respective Boards of Directors shall take any action that would cause any Takeover Restriction to become applicable to this Agreement, the Merger, or any of the other transactions contemplated hereby, and each shall take all necessary steps to exempt (or ensure the continued exemption of) the Merger and the other transactions contemplated hereby from any applicable Takeover Restriction now or hereafter in effect.  If any Takeover Restriction may become, or may purport to be, applicable to the transactions contemplated hereby, each party and the members of their respective Boards of Directors will grant such approvals and take such actions as are necessary so that the transactions contemplated by this Agreement may be consummated as promptly as practicable on the terms contemplated hereby and otherwise act to eliminate or minimize the effects of any Takeover Restriction on any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including, if necessary, challenging the validity or applicability of any such Takeover Restriction.

6.17    Treatment of TCBI Indebtedness.

(a)       Upon the Effective Time, IBTX shall assume the due and punctual performance and observance of the covenants to be performed by TCBI under the agreements set forth on Section 6.17 of the TCBI Disclosure Schedule to the extent set forth in such agreements.  In connection therewith, IBTX and TCBI shall cooperate and use reasonable best efforts to execute and deliver any supplemental indentures, officer’s certificates or other documents, and the parties hereto shall cooperate and use reasonable best efforts to provide any opinion of counsel to the trustee thereof, required to make such assumption effective as of the Effective Time.

-63-

(b)      If requested by IBTX, TCBI shall deliver all notices and take all other actions to facilitate the termination at the Effective Time of all commitments in respect of the Credit Agreement, dated as of December 22, 2015, among TCBI, the lenders party thereto and U.S. Bank National Association, as administrative agent (as in effect from time to time), and the repayment in full on the Closing Date of all obligations, and releases of all Liens securing obligations, in respect of the indebtedness thereunder; provided, that IBTX shall provide any funds required to effect all such repayments at or prior to the Closing.  In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, if requested by IBTX, TCBI shall use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver to IBTX at least two business days prior to the Closing Date an executed payoff letter with respect to such credit facility in form and substance customary for transactions of this type, which payoff letter shall, among other things, include the payoff amount.

6.18    Exemption from Liability Under Section 16(b).  TCBI and IBTX agree that, in order to most effectively compensate and retain TCBI Insiders, both prior to and after the Effective Time, it is desirable that TCBI Insiders not be subject to a risk of liability under Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law in connection with the conversion of shares of TCBI Common Stock and TCBI Preferred Stock into shares of IBTX Common Stock and New IBTX Preferred Stock in the Merger and the conversion of TCBI Equity Awards into corresponding IBTX Equity Awards in the Merger consistent with Section 1.8 of this Agreement, and for that compensatory and retentive purpose agree to the provisions of this Section 6.18.  TCBI shall deliver to IBTX in a reasonably timely fashion prior to the Effective Time accurate information regarding those officers and directors of TCBI subject to the reporting requirements of Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act (the “TCBI Insiders”), and the Board of Directors of IBTX and of TCBI, or a committee of non-employee directors thereof (as such term is defined for purposes of Rule 16b-3(d) under the Exchange Act), shall reasonably promptly thereafter, and in any event prior to the Effective Time, take all such steps as may be required to cause (in the case of TCBI) any dispositions of TCBI Common Stock, TCBI Preferred Stock or TCBI Equity Awards by the TCBI Insiders, and (in the case of IBTX) any acquisitions of IBTX Common Stock, New IBTX Preferred Stock, or IBTX Equity Awards by any TCBI Insiders who, immediately following the Merger, will be officers or directors of the Surviving Entity subject to the reporting requirements of Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act, in each case pursuant to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, to be exempt from liability pursuant to Rule 16b-3 under the Exchange Act to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

(ii)        In the event that this Agreement is terminated by IBTX pursuant to Section 8.1(f), then TCBI shall pay IBTX, by wire transfer of same-day funds, the Termination Fee within two (2) business days of the date of termination.

(c)       (i)         In the event that after the date of this Agreement and prior to the termination of this Agreement, a bona fide Acquisition Proposal shall have been communicated to or otherwise made known to the Board of Directors or senior management of IBTX or shall have been made directly to the shareholders of IBTX or any person shall have publicly announced (and not withdrawn at least two (2) business days prior to the IBTX Meeting) an Acquisition Proposal, in each case with respect to IBTX and (A) (x) thereafter this Agreement is terminated by either IBTX or TCBI pursuant to Section 8.1(c) without the Requisite IBTX Vote having been obtained (and all other conditions set forth in Section 7.1 and Section 7.2 were satisfied or were capable of being satisfied prior to such termination) or (y) thereafter this Agreement is terminated by TCBI pursuant to Section 8.1(d) as a result of a willful breach, and (B) prior to the date that is twelve (12) months after the date of such termination, IBTX enters into a definitive agreement or consummates a transaction with respect to an Acquisition Proposal (whether or not the same Acquisition Proposal as that referred to above), then IBTX shall, on the earlier of the date it enters into such definitive agreement and the date of consummation of such transaction, pay TCBI the Termination Fee by wire transfer of same-day funds; provided, that for purposes of this Section 8.2(c)(i), all references in the definition of Acquisition Proposal to “twenty-five percent (25%)” shall instead refer to “fifty percent (50%).”

(ii)        In the event that this Agreement is terminated by TCBI pursuant to Section 8.1(e), then IBTX shall pay TCBI, by wire transfer of same-day funds, the Termination Fee within two (2) business days of the date of termination.

(d)       Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, but without limiting the right of any party to recover liabilities or damages to the extent permitted herein, in no event shall either party be required to pay the Termination Fee more than once.

(e)       Each of IBTX and TCBI acknowledges that the agreements contained in this Section 8.2 are an integral part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and that, without these agreements, the other party would not enter into this Agreement; accordingly, if IBTX or TCBI, as the case may be, fails promptly to pay the amount due pursuant to this Section 8.2, and, in order to obtain such payment, the other party commences a suit which results in a judgment against the non-paying party for the Termination Fee or any portion thereof, such non-paying party shall pay the costs and expenses of the other party (including attorneys’ fees and expenses) in connection with such suit.  In addition, if IBTX or TCBI, as the case may be, fails to pay the amounts payable pursuant to this Section 8.2, then such party shall pay interest on such overdue amounts at a rate per annum equal to the “prime rate” published in the Wall Street Journal on the date on which such payment was required to be made for the period commencing as of the date that such overdue amount was originally required to be paid and ending on the date that such overdue amount is actually paid in full.

9.6                  Interpretation.  The parties have participated jointly in negotiating and drafting this Agreement.  In the event that an ambiguity or a question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the parties, and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or disfavoring any party by virtue of the authorship of any provision of this Agreement.  When a reference is made in this Agreement to Articles, Sections, Exhibits or Schedules, such reference shall be to an Article or Section of or Exhibit or Schedule to this Agreement unless otherwise indicated.  The table of contents and headings contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.  Whenever the words “include,” “includes” or “including” are used in this Agreement, they shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.”  The word “or” shall not be exclusive.  References to “the date hereof” shall mean the date of this Agreement.  As used in this Agreement, the “knowledge” of TCBI means the actual knowledge of any of the officers of TCBI listed on Section 9.6 of the TCBI Disclosure Schedule, and the “knowledge” of IBTX means the actual knowledge of any of the officers of IBTX listed on Section 9.6 of the IBTX Disclosure Schedule.  As used herein, (i) the term “person” means any individual, corporation (including not‑for‑profit), general or limited partnership, limited liability company, joint venture, estate, trust, association, organization, Governmental Entity or other entity of any kind or nature, (ii) an “affiliate” of a specified person is any person that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, such specified person, (iii) the term “made available” means any document or other information that was (a) provided by one party or its representatives to the other party and its representatives at least one (1) day prior to the date hereof, (b) included in the virtual data room of a party at least one (1) day prior to the date hereof or (c) filed by a party with the SEC and publicly available on EDGAR at least one (1) day prior to the date hereof and (iv) references to a party’s shareholders shall mean, in the case of TCBI, its stockholders, and references to such shareholders or stockholders approving this Agreement shall mean approving and adopting this Agreement, as applicable.  The TCBI Disclosure Schedule and the IBTX Disclosure Schedule, as well as all other schedules and all exhibits hereto, shall be deemed part of this Agreement and included in any reference to this Agreement.  Nothing contained herein shall require any party or person to take any action in violation of applicable law.

9.7      Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, all of which shall be considered one and the same agreement and shall become effective when counterparts have been signed by each of the parties and delivered to the other parties, it being understood that all parties need not sign the same counterpart.

-72-

9.8      Entire Agreement.  This Agreement (including the documents and instruments referred to herein) together with the Confidentiality Agreement constitutes the entire agreement among the parties and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, both written and oral, among the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof.

  9.9      Governing Law; Jurisdiction.

(a)       This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to any applicable conflicts of law principles (except that matters relating to the fiduciary duties of the Board of Directors of IBTX shall be subject to the laws of the State of Texas).

(b)       Each party agrees that it will bring any action or proceeding in respect of any claim arising out of or related to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby exclusively in the Delaware Court of Chancery and any state appellate court therefrom within the State of Delaware or, if the Delaware Court of Chancery declines to accept jurisdiction over a particular matter, any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction located in the State of Delaware (the “Chosen Courts”), and, solely in connection with claims arising under this Agreement or the transactions that are the subject of this Agreement, (i) irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Chosen Courts, (ii) waives any objection to laying venue in any such action or proceeding in the Chosen Courts, (iii) waives any objection that the Chosen Courts are an inconvenient forum or do not have jurisdiction over any party and (iv) agrees that service of process upon such party in any such action or proceeding will be effective if notice is given in accordance with Section 9.5.

9.10    Waiver of Jury Trial.  EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT ANY CONTROVERSY WHICH MAY ARISE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IS LIKELY TO INVOLVE COMPLICATED AND DIFFICULT ISSUES, AND THEREFORE EACH SUCH PARTY HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW AT THE TIME OF INSTITUTION OF THE APPLICABLE LITIGATION, ANY RIGHT SUCH PARTY MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT.  EACH PARTY CERTIFIES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT:  (I) NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER, (II) EACH PARTY UNDERSTANDS AND HAS CONSIDERED THE IMPLICATIONS OF THIS WAIVER, (III) EACH PARTY MAKES THIS WAIVER VOLUNTARILY, AND (IV) EACH PARTY HAS BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 9.10.

-73-

9.11    Assignment; Third-Party Beneficiaries.  Neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations hereunder shall be assigned by any of the parties hereto (whether by operation of law or otherwise) without the prior written consent of the other party.  Any purported assignment in contravention hereof shall be null and void.  Subject to the preceding sentence, this Agreement will be binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the parties and their respective successors and assigns.  Except as otherwise  provided in Section 6.7, this Agreement (including the documents and instruments referred to herein) is not intended to confer upon any person other than the parties hereto any rights or remedies hereunder, including the right to rely upon the representations and warranties set forth herein.  The representations and warranties in this Agreement are the product of negotiations among the parties hereto and are for the sole benefit of the parties.  Any inaccuracies in such representations and warranties are subject to waiver by the parties hereto in accordance herewith without notice or liability to any other person.  In some instances, the representations and warranties in this Agreement may represent an allocation among the parties hereto of risks associated with particular matters regardless of the knowledge of any of the parties hereto.  Consequently, persons other than the parties may not rely upon the representations and warranties in this Agreement as characterizations of actual facts or circumstances as of the date of this Agreement or as of any other date.

9.12    Specific Performance.  The parties hereto agree that irreparable damage would occur if any provision of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with the terms hereof and, accordingly, that the parties shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches or threatened breaches of this Agreement or to enforce specifically the performance of the terms and provisions hereof (including the parties’ obligation to consummate the Merger), in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled at law or in equity.  Each of the parties hereby further waives (a) any defense in any action for specific performance that a remedy at law would be adequate and (b) any requirement under any law to post security or a bond as a prerequisite to obtaining equitable relief.

9.13    Severability.  Whenever possible, each provision or portion of any provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision or portion of any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under any applicable law or rule in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provision or portion of any provision in such jurisdiction, and this Agreement shall be reformed, construed and enforced in such jurisdiction such that the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision or portion thereof shall be interpreted to be only so broad as is enforceable.

9.14    Confidential Supervisory Information.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no disclosure, representation or warranty shall be made (or other action taken) pursuant to this Agreement that would involve the disclosure of confidential supervisory information (including confidential supervisory information as defined in 12 C.F.R. § 261.2(c) and as identified in 12 C.F.R. § 309.5(g)(8)) of a Governmental Entity by any party to this Agreement to the extent prohibited by applicable law.  For purposes of clarity, a representation relating to receipt of regulatory approvals on a timely basis shall not be given, or continue to be given, to the extent the reason for it no longer continuing to be accurate involves such confidential supervisory information. To the extent legally permissible, appropriate substitute disclosures or actions shall be made or taken under circumstances in which the limitations of the preceding sentences apply.

-74-

9.15    Delivery by Facsimile or Electronic Transmission.  This Agreement and any signed agreement or instrument entered into in connection with this Agreement, and any amendments or waivers hereto or thereto, to the extent signed and delivered by means of a facsimile machine or by e‑mail delivery of a “.pdf” format data file, shall be treated in all manner and respects as an original agreement or instrument and shall be considered to have the same binding legal effect as if it were the original signed version thereof delivered in person.  No party hereto or to any such agreement or instrument shall raise the use of a facsimile machine or e‑mail delivery of a “.pdf” format data file to deliver a signature to this Agreement or any amendment hereto or the fact that any signature or agreement or instrument was transmitted or communicated through the use of a facsimile machine or e‑mail delivery of a “.pdf” format data file as a defense to the formation of a contract and each party hereto forever waives any such defense.
