Form 8-K for BANK OF THE CAROLINAS CORP


24-Apr-2014

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On April 18, 2014, Bank of the Carolinas Corporation (the "Company") entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") with the United States Department of the Treasury (the "Treasury"). The Agreement sets forth the terms of the Company's repurchase from the Treasury of shares of its Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A (the "Series A Preferred Stock") and a ten-year warrant to purchase shares of the Company's common stock (the "Warrant").

Background. On April 17, 2009, the Company issued and sold to the Treasury 13,179 shares of the Series A Preferred Stock for an aggregate purchase price of $13,179,000. The Series A Preferred Stock pays quarterly dividends. The dividend rate on the Series A Preferred Stock is currently 5% per annum. From and after May 15, 2014, the dividend rate will increase to 9% per annum. The Company has deferred all quarterly dividend payments on the Series A Preferred Stock since February 2011.

In conjunction with the sale of its Series A Preferred Stock, the Company also issued the Warrant to the Treasury. The Warrant gave the Treasury the right to purchase up to 475,204 shares of the Company's common stock at a price of $4.16 per share. As of the date of this report, the Treasury has not exercised its right to purchase any shares of common stock under the Warrant.

Securities Purchase Agreement. Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company may repurchase the 13,179 shares of Series A Preferred Stock and the Warrant currently held by the Treasury. The aggregate purchase price for the shares of Series A Preferred Stock, including all accrued and unpaid dividends, and the Warrant, will be $3,294,750. The closing of the transaction will occur at such time as is agreed to in writing by the Company and the Treasury. The Treasury has agreed not to transfer its shares of the Series A Preferred Stock or the Warrant before the closing, and has also agreed not to exercise the Warrant without the prior written consent of the Company.

The Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of the Company and is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approval of the transaction. There can be no guarantee that the Company will receive regulatory approval for the transaction or have sufficient funds available to consummate the transaction.

The Agreement may be terminated by mutual agreement of the Company and the Treasury. The Agreement may also be terminated by either party in the event that the transaction does not close on or before August 15, 2014. The Treasury may also terminate the Agreement in the event the Company does not receive all necessary regulatory approvals for the transaction on or before July 31, 2014.
