Item 1.01. Entry Into A Material Definitive Agreement.

Term Loan Agreement

On November 6, 2012, Enterprise Financial Services Corp (the "Company") entered into a $12 million unsecured term loan agreement (the "Term Loan") with US Bank National Association the proceeds of which are to be used to redeem the Company's preferred stock held by the U.S. Treasury.

The Term Loan has a maturity date of November 6, 2015. The interest rate on the Term Loan is based on one-month LIBOR plus 250 to 325 basis points, depending on the remaining principal balance of the Term Loan (with the current rate set at 325 basis points). Quarterly principal payments in the amount of $300,000 each are due and payable on March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31, commencing on December 31, 2012. The Term Loan may be paid prior to maturity in whole or in part at the Company's option without penalty or premium.

The Term Loan is subject to the Company's ongoing compliance with a number of customary affirmative and negative covenants and financial covenants.

Any failure to comply with the financial and operating covenants of the Term Loan after any applicable cure periods would constitute a default, which could result in, among other things, the amounts outstanding, including all accrued interest, becoming immediately due and payable.

The Company paid an aggregate purchase price of approximately $35.4 million to the Treasury, which included a $1,000 per share liquidation amount and approximately $399,000 for accrued and unpaid dividends.
