Greer Bancshares Incorporated Issues Aggregate Principal Amount of $1,980,000 of Series A 5% Subordinated Notes Due 2022

On June 11, 2014, after receiving regulatory approval, Greer Bancshares Incorporated issued an aggregate principal amount of $1,980,000 of Series A 5% Subordinated Notes due 2022 in a private placement pursuant to certain exemptions from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and state securities laws. All of the Series A Notes were issued to accredited investors as that term is defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act. Also on June 11, 2014, after receiving regulatory approval, the company used the entire proceeds from the Series A Notes to repurchase an aggregate principal amount of $1,980,000 of the company's preferred stock that was issued to the U.S. Treasury Department in January 2009 under the Troubled Assets Relief Program. The sole purpose of the Series A Note offering was to repurchase a portion of the company's outstanding TARP Preferred. The dividend rate on most of the TARP Preferred increased from 5% to 9% on February 16, 2014. (The dividend rate on $500,000 in principal amount of the TARP Preferred was 9% from the date of issuance.) The remaining outstanding principal amount of the company's TARP Preferred is $5,363,000. The Series A Notes will initially accrue interest at a rate of 5% per annum, payable at the end of each calendar quarter. The interest rate will increase to 7% per annum, effective July 1, 2017. Delay of payment prior to the maturity date due to restrictions imposed by applicable law or government regulatory agencies will not constitute a default under, or breach of, the Series A Notes. The Series A Notes mature on June 30, 2022. The company may prepay all or any part of the outstanding principal amount of the Series A Notes at any time after June 30, 2016. The Series A Notes are not convertible into the common stock or any other securities of the company and are not secured by any collateral, guaranty, insurance, sinking fund or other form of security. There is no limitation on the company's right to issue additional indebtedness on par with or senior to the Series A Notes.
