(b) On July 16, 2013, John H. Crane formally gave notice of his desire to retire from the Board of Directors of Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida ("Seacoast" or the "Company") effective immediately. Mr. Crane will remain on the Board of Directors of the Company's principal operating subsidiary, Seacoast National Bank (the "Bank").

On July 12, 2013, the Company announced that H. Russell Holland, III will be leaving his role as Executive Vice President and Chief Lending Officer of Seacoast and the Bank effective July 19, 2013. Mr. Holland will continue to serve as a consultant to the Company pursuant to the terms of the consulting agreement described below.

(e) As noted above, H. Russell Holland, III will resign from his position as Executive Vice President and Chief Lending Officer of Seacoast effective July 19, 2013. Mr. Holland is party to an employment agreement with the Company, dated as of January 2, 2007 (the "Employment Agreement"), the terms of which are described in the Company's definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 9, 2013. Mr. Holland will not receive any severance benefits under the Employment Agreement in connection with his resignation.

On July 10, 2013, the Company entered into a separation agreement and general release (the "Separation Agreement") with Mr. Holland related to his resignation from the Company. The Separation Agreement includes a release by Mr. Holland of claims against the Company and certain related parties and also amends the Employment Agreement to reduce the periods of the covenant not to compete and the covenant not to solicit employees contained therein from two (2) years following termination of employment to one (1) year. In addition, the Company agreed to accelerate the vesting of 55,810 shares of restricted stock granted under the Company's 2008 Long-Term Incentive Plan.

On July 10, 2013, the Company also entered into a Consulting Agreement (the "Consulting Agreement") with Mr. Holland, which has an original term of six months that is terminable at the will of either party with fifteen (15) days written notice, provided, however, that if the Company terminates the Consulting Agreement prior to the end of the original six month term other than by reason of Mr. Holland's (i) breach of the Consulting Agreement, (ii) engaging in criminal conduct or conduct harmful to the Company, or (iii) breach of any applicable noncompetition, confidentiality or other restrictive covenants, then the Company will pay to Mr. Holland a termination fee equal to the consulting fee for each full month of the original term for which he has not yet been paid. Under the Consulting Agreement, the Company will pay Mr. Holland a monthly rate of $26,320.00 per month for certain services performed and will reimburse Mr. Holland for reasonable business expenses. The Consulting Agreement includes covenants related to non-disclosure of the Company's confidential information and assigns all work developed by him during his engagement with Company solely to the Company.
