Item 8.01. Other Events


On November 23, 2015, Entegra Financial Corp. (“Entegra Financial”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Combination and Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among Entegra Financial, Entegra Bank, EFC Merger Sub Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Entegra Financial (“Merger Sub”) and Oldtown Bank (“Oldtown”), pursuant to which (i) Merger Sub will be merged with and into Oldtown, with Oldtown as the surviving entity (the “Merger”), and (ii) immediately thereafter, Oldtown will merge with and into Entegra Bank, with Entegra Bank as the surviving bank.


Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, shareholders of Oldtown will receive a cash payment equal to eleven dollars and five cents ($11.05) in exchange for each share of Oldtown common stock held immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger. The aggregate merger consideration is approximately $13.5 million, which amount includes the cash-out of in-the-money stock options. Entegra Financial will not issue any shares of its common stock in connection with the Merger.


The transaction has been unanimously approved by the board of directors of each company and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2016. Completion of the Merger is subject to customary closing conditions, including the receipt of required regulatory approvals and the approval of Oldtown’s shareholders.


The Merger Agreement provides certain termination rights for both Entegra Financial and Oldtown and further provides that a termination fee of $250,000 will be payable by either Entegra Financial or Oldtown, as applicable, upon termination of the Merger Agreement under certain circumstances. In addition, under certain circumstances, documented out-of-pocket transaction expenses of up to $100,000 will be payable by either Entegra Financial or Oldtown.


A copy of a press release dated November 24, 2015, announcing the Merger is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
