Temporary Suspension of Trading Under Registrant's Employee Benefit Plans, F

Item 5.04 Temporary Suspension of Trading Under Registrant's Employee Benefit
The FirstMerit Corporation and Affiliates Employees' Salary Savings Retirement Plan (the "Salary Savings Plan") and Citizens Republic Bancorp 401(k) Plan (the "Citizens 401(k) Plan" and, together with the Salary Saving Plan, the "Plans") will be experiencing a blackout period. The blackout period is required due to the merger of the Plans and the transition to a new record keeper. During the blackout period, participants in the Plans will be unable to (i) obtain a loan or distribution from the Plans or (ii) change existing investment elections or execute a fund transfer, including with respect to FirstMerit Corporation common stock.

This notice was required pursuant to Section 306 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and Section 104 of Regulation BTR under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

A copy of the notice to the directors and executive officers is attached as Exhibit 99.1. During the Blackout Period and for a period of two years after the ending date of the Blackout Period, shareholders or other interested parties may obtain, without charge, information about the actual beginning and ending dates of the Blackout Period by contacting the Company's Investor Relations department by telephone at (330) 996-6300 or by mail at Investor Relations, III Cascade Plaza, 7th Floor, Akron, Ohio 44308.
