Under the contract reported on this form, Promerica will deliver to the bank up to 102,722 shares of the Issuer's common stock depending on market prices at maturity on December 9, 2009. If the market price per share at maturity is equal to or less than the floor price of $7.343 per share, Promerica will deliver 102,722 shares to the bank.
