Item 1.01   Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
     Effective as of March 15, 2010, Citizens First National Bank, Princeton, Illinois (the “Bank”), a subsidiary of Princeton National Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a formal written agreement (the “Agreement”) with the Comptroller of the Currency (the “Comptroller”) that contains provisions to lower nonperforming loan levels and foster improvement in the Bank’s policies and procedures with respect to the Bank’s allowance for loan and lease losses, and loan risk rating system. The Bank has begun addressing all of these requirements.
     Pursuant to the Agreement, the Bank’s board is required to review the adequacy of the Bank’s allowance for loan and lease losses and to establish a program for the maintenance of an adequate allowance. A copy of the board’s program is required to be submitted to the Comptroller for review. The Bank is also required to take immediate action to protect its interest in criticized assets identified in the Bank’s most recent Report of Examination with the Comptroller and to adopt individual written workout plans with respect to such assets. A copy of the workout plans is required to be submitted to the Comptroller with respect to any criticized asset equal to or exceeding $100,000. The Bank is prohibited from extending any additional credit to any borrower whose loan is criticized, unless a majority of the Bank’s board (or appropriate committee) has determined that the extension is necessary to promote the best interests of the Bank and such determination is properly recorded. Under the Agreement, the board must ensure that the Bank’s internal ratings of credit relationships are timely, accurate, and consistent with the regulatory credit classification criteria set forth in the Comptroller’s Handbook and related authority. The board must also ensure that any loan relationship with a high probability of payment default or other well-defined weakness is rated no better than “substandard,” regardless of the existence of certain mitigants that reduce credit risk.
     The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
