Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligatio

Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
On August 26, 2014, First Business Financial Services, Inc. (the "Company") entered into a Subordinated Note Purchase Agreement with three accredited investors under which the Company issued an aggregate of $15,000,000 of subordinated notes (the "Notes") to the accredited investors. The Notes have a maturity date of September 1, 2024 and will bear interest at a fixed rate of 6.50% per annum for the first five years of the instrument. From and including September 1, 2019 to the maturity date, the interest rate shall reset quarterly to an interest rate per annum equal to the then-current three-month LIBOR rate plus 470 basis points, payable quarterly in arrears.

The Company may, at its option, beginning with the interest payment date of September 1, 2019 and on any interest payment date thereafter, redeem the Notes, in whole or in part at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest to the date of redemption. Any partial redemption will be made pro rata among all of the holders. The Notes are not subject to repayment at the option of the holders.

The Company intends to pay approximately $13.5 million of the net proceeds as the cash portion of the merger consideration in the previously announced acquisition of Aslin Group, Inc. and its subsidiary, Alterra Bank. The Company also plans to retain a portion of the net proceeds to increase its regulatory capital and for general corporate purposes.

The Notes were offered and sold in reliance on the exemptions from registration provided by Section 4(a)(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 Fixed-to-Floating Rate Subordinated Note which is attached as Exhibit 4.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
