(Insured State Nonmember Bank)
ORDER OF PROHIBITION
FROM FURTHER
PARTICIPATION

FDIC-99-034e

   Anthony S. Battaglia, Jr., (``Respondent'') has been advised of the right to receive a NOTICE OF INTENTION TO PROHIBIT FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION (``NOTICE'') issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (``FDIC'') detailing the unsafe or unsound practices and/or breaches of fiduciary duty, previously engaged in by the Respondent while employed in the securities industry, for which an ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION (``ORDER'') may issue, and has been further advised of the right to a hearing on the charges under section 8(e) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (``Act''), 12 U.S.C. §1818(e), and the FDIC's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 12 C.F.R. Part 308. Having waived those rights, the Respondent entered into a STIPULATION AND CONSENT TO THE ISSUANCE OF AN ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION (``CONSENT AGREEMENT'') with a representative of the Legal Division of the FDIC, whereby solely for the purpose of this proceeding and without admitting or denying any such unsafe or unsound practices and/or breaches of fiduciary duty, Respondent consented to the issuance of this ORDER by the FDIC.
   The FDIC considered the matter and determined it had reason to believe that:
   (a) The Respondent has engaged or participated in unsafe or unsound practices as a Branch Manager of Paine-Webber, Inc., St. Petersburg, Florida (``Paine-Webber'');
   (b) By reason of such practices and/or breaches of fiduciary duty, Paine-Webber has suffered or will probably suffer financial loss or other damage and/or Respondent has received financial gain or other benefit; and
   (c) Such practices and/or breaches of fiduciary duty involve personal dishonesty on the part of the Respondent or demon strate the Respondent's willful and/or con-

tinuing disregard for the safety or soundness of Paine-Webber.
   The FDIC further determined that such practices and/or breaches of fiduciary duty demonstrate the Respondent's unfitness to serve as a director, officer, person participating in the conduct of the affairs or as an institution-affiliated party of Republic Bank, St. Petersburg, Florida, (``Bank''), any other insured depository institution, or any other agency or organization enumerated in section 8(e)(7)(A) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. §1818(e)(7)(A).1
   The FDIC, therefore, accepted the CONSENT AGREEMENT and issued the following:

ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM
FURTHER PARTICIPATION

   1. Anthony S. Battaglia, Jr., is hereby, without the prior written approval of the FDIC and the appropriate Federal financial institutions regulatory agency, as that term is defined in section 8(e)(7)(D) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. §1818(e)(7)(D), prohibited from:

   [.1] (a) participating in any manner in the conduct of the affairs of any financial institution or organization enumerated in section 8(e)(7)(A) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. §1818( e) (7)(A);2

   [.2] (b) soliciting, procuring, transferring, attempting to transfer, voting, or attempting to vote any proxy, consent or authorization with respect to any voting rights in any financial institution enumerated in section 8(e)(7)(A) of the Act 12 U.S.C. §1818(e) (7)(A);3
   (c) violating any voting agreement previously approved by the appropriate Federal banking agency; or
   (d) voting for a director, or serving or acting as an institution-affiliated party.
   2. This ORDER will become effective ten (10) days after its issuance. The provisions of this ORDER will remain effective and enforceable except to the extent that, and until such time as, any provision of this ORDER shall have been modified, terminated, suspended, or set aside by the FDIC.
   Pursuant to delegated authority.
   Dated this 10th day of June, 1999.
