Form 8-K for NEWBRIDGE BANCORP


14-Mar-2014

Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance


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

On March 14, 2014, NewBridge Bancorp (the "Company") entered into a Subordinated Note Purchase Agreement with 14 accredited investors under which the Company issued an aggregate of $15.5 million of subordinated notes (the "Notes") to the accredited investors, including members of the Company's board of directors. The Notes have a maturity date of March 14, 2024. The Notes bear interest, payable on the 1st of January and July of each year, commencing July 1, 2014, at a fixed interest rate of 7.25% per year.

The Notes are not convertible into common stock or preferred stock, and are not callable by the holders. The Company has the right to prepay the Notes, in whole or in part, without premium or penalty, at any time on or after March 14, 2019 and prior to the maturity date, but in all cases in a principal amount with integral multiples of $1,000, plus all accrued and unpaid through the date of prepayment.

If an event of default occurs, such as the bankruptcy of the Company, the holder of a Note may declare the principal amount of the Note to be due and immediately payable. The Notes will be unsecured, subordinated obligations of the Company and will rank junior in right of payment to the Company's senior indebtedness and to the Company's obligations to its general creditors.

The Notes are intended to qualify as Tier 2 capital for regulatory purposes. The Company expects to use most of the net proceeds from the sale of the Notes to redeem its outstanding shares of Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A, which it issued to the U.S. Treasury in 2008 pursuant to its participation in the Capital Purchase Program.

The Notes were offered and sold in reliance on the exemptions from registration provided by Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Rule 506 of Regulation D thereunder. Accordingly, the Notes were offered and sold exclusively to persons who are "accredited investors" within the meaning of Rule 501(a) of Regulation D.

This description of the Notes does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Subordinated Note which is attached as Exhibit 4.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
