If the Merger shall not have been consummated on or before March 31, 2017 (subject to extension by Buyer BHC until June 30, 2017, if Buyer BHC shall have provided Bank with evidence reasonably satisfactory to Bank that an application for approval of the Merger has, on or before March 31, 2017, been filed with and accepted for processing by the Federal Reserve System), or such later date as may be agreed upon in writing by the parties, any party may, if it is not itself in breach of a representation, warranty, covenant or agreement hereunder, and if any condition to the obligation of a party to consummate the Merger is impossible to be satisfied by such date or such other date as may be agreed upon by the parties, terminate this Agreement (except those surviving provisions referred to in Section 10(b)) upon written notice to the other parties. In no event shall a party or person be entitled to the remedies provided in Section 10(c), whether termination is made pursuant to Section 10(b), 10(c), or 10(d) or otherwise, if such party or person was, at the time of termination, in material breach of any of its covenants or agreements herein.

5. This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts (which may be delivered by facsimile, email, or other similar means of electronic transmission), each of which, when duly executed, shall be deemed an original and all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

6. This Amendment shall in all respects be governed by and construed, interpreted, and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Tennessee, without regard to principles of conflict of laws.

7. Ratification. Except as expressly amended by this Amendment, the Agreement is ratified and confirmed in all respects and shall remain in full force and effect in accordance with its terms.
