Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On September 10, 2013, Atlantic Coast Financial Corporation (the "Company") announced its decision to name John K. Stephens, Jr., 50, as Chief Executive Officer, President and a director of the Company, contingent upon receipt of regulatory non-objection from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. It is anticipated that Mr. Stephens will serve in the class of directors with a term expiring at the Company's 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

From 2006 to 2011, Mr. Stephens served as the chief lending officer, overseeing a loan portfolio of almost $2 billion and responsible for strategic leadership for all wholesale banking activities for the central and north Florida affiliate banks of Fifth Third Bank, N.A, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fifth Third Bancorp, a diversified financial services company headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. Mr. Stephens began his career in 1986 with Wachovia Bank, N.A., where he started as a regional banking officer, later became a relationship manager responsible for originating and managing senior debt and ancillary service relationships with corporate clients, and was ultimately selected to start and lead a leveraged finance group. Most recently, Mr. Stephens has been the president of Tower Bridge Capital, Inc., a privately held mezzanine debt and strategic advisory firm focused on emerging growth companies, since 2011. Mr. Stephens' extensive understanding of the banking industry, due to his key leadership roles and diversity of experience in bank structures, will provide valuable experience, leadership, insight and perspective to the Company's board of directors.

Mr. Stephens will have an annual base salary of $300,000, and in connection with his relocation to the Jacksonville, Florida area, the Company will pay for ninety (90) days of temporary housing. As of September 10, 2013, Mr. Stephens held no securities in the Company.
