Patterson, and two other members of CapStone Bank's board of directors selected by NewBridge, to the Boards of Directors of NewBridge and NewBridge Bank following the closing of the merger of CapStone Bank with and into NewBridge Bank. Additionally, NewBridge agreed, subject to the good faith consideration by its Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the selection criteria set forth in its charter, these former directors of CapStone Bank will be nominated for election by the shareholders of NewBridge at the 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders and, if so elected, will be appointed to the Board of Directors of NewBridge Bank, and, at a minimum, will continue to be so nominated at the following five Annual Meetings of Shareholders of NewBridge.

Accordingly, on April 1, 2014, the Board of Directors of NewBridge and NewBridge Bank appointed Michael S. Patterson, Robert A. Boyette and Richard A.
