Item 2.01.Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.


On May 24, 2019, BayCom Corp, a California corporation (“BayCom”) completed its previously announced acquisition of Uniti Financial Corporation (“Uniti”) pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated December 7, 2018 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and between BayCom and Uniti. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Uniti merged with and into BayCom (the “Merger”), with BayCom as the surviving corporation in the Merger. Immediately following the Merger, Uniti Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Uniti, merged with and into United Business Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BayCom (the “Bank Merger”), with United Business Bank as the surviving bank in the Bank Merger.


Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the "Effective Time"), BayCom paid aggregate consideration to Uniti shareholders of 1,115,006 shares of BayCom common stock and $35.5 million in cash. Each share of common stock of Uniti outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, excluding certain specified shares including any dissenting shares, converted into the right to receive 0.07234 shares of BayCom common stock and $2.30 per share in cash. Options to purchase Uniti common stock outstanding at the Effective Time were cancelled and if applicable, a cash payment equal to the positive difference between $4.00 and the corresponding exercise price of such option was paid.
