Form 8-K for WEST BANCORPORATION INC


6-Jun-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Financia


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 4, 2013, West Bancorporation, Inc. (the "Company") entered into a Stock Repurchase Agreement (the "Agreement") with American Equity Investment Life Holding Company ("AEL") and American Equity Life Insurance Company ("AELC" and together with AEL, the "seller") pursuant to which the Company agreed to repurchase 1,440,592 shares of its common stock. The shares represented 8.27 percent of the total common shares outstanding on June 4, 2013. The purchase price was $10.95 per share. The repurchased shares will be canceled, thus reducing the Company's total issued and outstanding common shares to 15,969,464.

This transaction is the result of the seller indicating a desire to sell these shares. The Company, with the assistance of an investment banking firm, evaluated the merits of repurchasing these shares and decided it was beneficial to do so. The investment banking firm also represented the Company in negotiations with the seller.

The foregoing summary of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the agreement, which is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference. The Company's press release dated June 6, 2013, is attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.



Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The Company has accepted a loan commitment with a commercial bank to borrow $16,000,000 to fund the repurchase of the shares described in item 1.01. The note will be payable quarterly over five years. The interest rate will be variable at 195 basis points over the 30 day LIBOR rate. The Company expects to close on this loan transaction in June 2013.
