Item 8.01 Other Events.


As part of its continuing review of operations and in order to reduce expenses and achieve greater operational efficiencies, on January 23, 2013, MainSource Financial Group, Inc. (the “Company”) informed employees of its plan to close 8 branch offices of MainSource Bank effective April 26, 2013.  The branch offices to be closed are located in Redkey, Cambridge City, Fountain City, East Enterprise, Trafalgar, Covington and Fortville, Indiana, and the northside branch located in Troy, Ohio. Customer accounts in the affected branches will be serviced by the nearest MainSource Bank branch location.  As of December 31, 2012, the 8 branches had approximately $88 million in total deposits.  In connection with the branch closures the Company anticipates taking a pre-tax charge in the first quarter of 2013 of approximately $1.0 million.  The Company anticipates annualized cost savings of approximately $1.3 million as a result of the closures.
