THIS AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”), made and entered into by and between the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, as Receiver of Horizon Bank (“Receiver”) and Horizon Bancorporation, Inc. (the “Holding Company”) (together with the Receiver the “Parties”, each individually a “Party”) on their own behalf and on behalf of their respective successors and assigns,


WHEREAS, on September 10, 2010, Horizon Bank (the “Institution”) was closed by the Florida Office of Financial Regulation and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation was appointed as receiver of the Institution. Under the laws of the United States, the Receiver is charged with the duty of winding up the affairs of the former Institution;

WHEREAS, the Holding Company is a corporation organized and doing business pursuant to the laws of Florida, with its principal place of business in Bradenton, Florida. The Holding Company was the sole shareholder of the Institution at the time of its failure;

WHEREAS, to protect the Institution’s depositors, the Receiver entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with the Bank of the Ozarks to assume substantially all of the deposits and assets of the Institution;

WHEREAS, the Institution occupied and operated its main branch at the building and real estate located at 900 53rd Avenue East, Bradenton, Florida (the “Premises”);

WHEREAS, the Holding Company has asserted that it is the holder of fee simple title to the Premises;

WHEREAS, the Receiver has asserted that, based upon the books and records of the Institution maintained at the time of its failure, equitable title and beneficial ownership of the Premises lawfully resided with the Institution, and thus, with the Receiver;

WHEREAS, the Holding Company has asserted that its promissory note to 1st Manatee Bank in the original amount of $1,100,000 represented a debt incurred by the Holding Company solely for the benefit of the Institution; and

WHEREAS, the aforesaid promissory note was renewed on September 28, 2011 in the amount of $1,013,500 and is purportedly secured by a mortgage on the Premises dated September 28, 2011 and recorded September 29, 2011;

WHEREAS, the Receiver has asserted that said mortgage was and remains voidable;

WHEREAS, the Holding Company has filed federal income tax returns seeking to claim refunds based on net operating losses applied against taxes paid in prior years;

WHEREAS, the Receiver has claimed that the refunds are properly payable to the Receiver to the extent that they represent taxes paid by and losses incurred by the Institution;

WHEREAS, the Holding Company has filed a claim against the Receiver for unpaid rent and real estate taxes on the Premises, as well as expenses allegedly incurred by the Holding Company related to seeking additional capital for the Institution;

WHEREAS; the Receiver has alleged that the books and records of the Institution show an additional obligation due and owing from the Holding Company in the amount of $355,265;

WHEREAS; the Receiver, and by extension, the Bank of the Ozarks has maintained from the date of failure, and continues to maintain, possession and control of the Premises;

WHEREAS; in order to avoid undue disruption of banking services to the former depositors of the failed Institution; the Receiver wishes to arrange for the Bank of the Ozarks to continue maintaining possession of the Premises for a reasonable amount of time; and

WHEREAS, the Receiver and the Holding Company desire to amicably resolve their differences and seek by this agreement to reach a final and complete settlement of the above-described disputes upon the terms and conditions set forth herein.
