On September 21, 2009, Waccamaw Bankshares, Inc. and First-Citizens Bank & Trust Company amended the terms of a warrant agreement between Waccamaw and First-Citizens dated September 18, 2006. First-Citizens serves as Waccamaws stock transfer agent. The warrant agreement governs a series of warrants to purchase shares of Waccamaws common stock. These warrants were issued in 2006. Each warrant allows the holder to purchase one share of Waccamaws common stock at a price of $24.00 (subsequently adjusted to $21.82 per share to account for a stock dividend). Waccamaw issued a warrant certificate to each warrant holder specifying the total number of shares for which the warrants are exercisable. Under the terms of the warrant agreement, the warrants were set to expire and become unexercisable after 5:00 p.m. on September 30, 2009. The amendment to the warrant agreement extends the exercise period of the warrants until September 30, 2014. All other provisions of the warrant agreement are unchanged and remain in full force and effect.
A copy of the first amendment to the warrant agreement is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this report.
In conjunction with the amendment of the warrant agreement described in Item 1.01, Waccamaw has issued an addendum to the certificates representing warrants to purchase shares of Waccamaws common stock issued in 2006. The addendum, dated September 24, 2009, reflects the amendment of the warrant agreement and the new expiration date of September 30, 2014.
A form of the addendum to the warrant certificates is included as Exhibit 4.1 to this report.
On September 25, 2009, Waccamaw issued a press release announcing the extension of the warrant exercise period from September 30, 2009, until September 30, 2014. A copy of the press release is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
