Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Team Capital, a Pennsylvania chartered savings bank, will merge with and into Provident Bank, a New Jersey chartered savings bank, with Provident Bank as the surviving entity.

Under the terms of the agreement, 75% of Team Capital's common shares will be converted into Company common stock and the remaining 25% will be exchanged for cash. Team Capital's stockholders will have the option to elect to receive either 0.8575 shares of the Company's common stock or $16.25 in cash for each Team Capital common share, subject to proration to ensure that, in the aggregate, 75% of Team Capital's common shares will be converted into Company stock.

The transaction has been approved by the Boards of Directors of the Company, Provident Bank and Team Capital. Completion of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including the receipt of required regulatory approvals and the approval of Team Capital's stockholders.

The Merger Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company and Provident Bank, together, and Team Capital made to each other as of specific dates. The assertions embodied in those representations and warranties were made solely for purposes of the contract by and among the Company, Provident Bank and Team Capital and are not intended to provide factual, business, or financial information about the Company, Provident Bank and Team Capital. Moreover, some of those representations and warranties may not be accurate or complete as of any specified date, may be subject to a contractual standard of materiality different from those generally applicable to stockholders or different from what a stockholder might view as material, may have been used for purposes of allocating risk between the Company, Provident Bank and Team Capital rather than establishing matters as facts, may have been qualified by certain disclosures not reflected in the Merger Agreement that were made to the other party in connection with the negotiation of the Merger Agreement and generally were solely for the benefit of the parties to that agreement. Team Capital has agreed to operate its business in the ordinary course consistent with past practice until the closing of the transaction and not to engage in certain kinds of transactions during such period (without the prior written consent of the Company).

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement is included to provide information regarding its terms and does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is incorporated into this report by reference.
