Item 1.01  
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Fidelity Southern Corporation (the Company) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) and a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Rights Agreement”) on May 26, 2011. Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, 11 separate accredited investors agreed to purchase an aggregate of 2,167,166 shares of common stock in a private placement exempt from registration under the Securities Act in reliance upon Rule 506 of Regulation D, for a purchase price of $6.65 per share, with gross proceeds of $14.4 million. No investor purchasing shares in this private placement resulted in such investors having beneficial ownership of more than 9.9% of the Company’s common stock. The sale of the common stock was completed on May 27, 2011. A press release was issued on May 27, 2011 describing the sale, a copy of which is filed as an exhibit to this Form 8-K.
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company made certain representations, warranties, and covenants that are customary for private placement transactions. Pursuant to the Rights Agreement, the Company has agreed to register the shares of common stock sold to the purchasers with the Securities and Exchange Commission to permit resale of the shares, which registration statement is required to be filed by the Company on or before June 27, 2011.
