ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST

FDIC-02-090b
OBRE No. 2002-BBTC-38

   Raritan State Bank, Raritan, Illinois ("Bank"), having been advised of its right to a NOTICE OF CHARGES AND OF HEARING detailing the unsafe or unsound banking practices and violations of law or regulation alleged to have been committed by the Bank, and of its right to a hearing on the charges under section 8(b) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act ("Act"), 12 U.S.C. §1818(b), and under 38 Ill. Adm. Code, section 392.30, regarding hearings before the Office of Banks and Real Estate for the State of Illinois ("OBRE"), and having waived those rights, entered into a STIPULATION AND CONSENT TO THE ISSUANCE OF AN ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST ("CONSENT AGREEMENT") with representatives of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") and OBRE dated September 24, 2002, whereby, solely for the purpose of this proceeding and without admitting or denying the charges of unsafe or unsound banking practices and violations of laws and regulations, the Bank consented to the issuance of an ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST ("ORDER") by the FDIC and OBRE.

   The FDIC and OBRE considered the matter and determined that there was reason to believe that the Bank had engaged in unsafe or unsound banking practices and had violated laws or regulations. The FDIC and OBRE, therefore, accepted the CONSENT AGREEMENT and issued the following:

ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST

   IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, that the Bank, its institution-affiliated parties, as that term is defined in section 3(u) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. §1813(u), and its successors and assigns, cease and desist from the following unsafe or unsound banking practices and violations of laws and regulations:

    •   Section 215.5(d)(4) of Regulation O of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System ("Regulation O"), 12 C.F.R. §215.5(d)(4), which requires that a "due and payable" clause be included in certain extensions of credit to executive officers.

    •   Section 326.8 of the FDIC Rules and Regulations, 12 C.F.R. §326.8, which requires each bank to develop a Bank Secrecy Act compliance program.

    •   Section 450.4 of the Department of the Treasury regulation implementing the Government Securities Act, 17 C.F.R. §450.4, which requires a bank to comply with certain custodial holding requirements.

   D. Operating with an excessive level of adversely classified assets.

   E. Operating with inadequate allowance for loans and lease losses for the volume, kind, and quality of loans and leases held.

   F. Operating with inadequate internal routines and controls.

   H. Failing to keep accurate books and records.

   I. Operating with management whose policies and practices are detrimental to the Bank and jeopardize the safety of its deposits.

   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, that the Bank, its institution-affiliated parties, and its successors and assigns, take affirmative action as follows:

   [.1]1. (a) Within 30 days from the last day of each calendar quarter following the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall determine from its Report of Condition and Income its level of Tier 1 capital as a percentage of its total assets ("capital ratio") for that calendar quarter. If the capital ratio is less than 7.0 percent, the Bank shall, within 60 days of the date of the required determination, increase its capital ratio to not less than 7.0 percent calculated as of the end of that preceding quarterly period. For purposes of this ORDER, Tier 1 capital and total assets shall be calculated in accordance with Part 325 of the FDIC Rules and Regulations ("Part 325"), 12 C.F.R. Part 325.

   (b) Any such increase in Tier 1 capital may be accomplished by the following:

       (i) The sale of common stock and noncumulative perpetual preferred stock constituting Tier 1 capital under Part 325; or

   (c) If all or part of the increase in capital required by this paragraph is to be accomplished by the sale of new securities, the board of directors of the Bank shall adopt and implement a plan for the sale of such additional securities, including the voting of any shares owned or proxies held by or controlled by them in favor of said plan. Should the implementation of the plan involve public distribution of Bank securities, including a distribution limited only to the Bank's existing shareholders, the Bank shall prepare detailed offering materials fully describing the securities being offered, including an accurate description of the financial condition of the Bank and the circumstances giving rise to the offering, and other material disclosures necessary to comply with federal and state securities laws. Prior to the implementation of the plan and, in any event, not less than 20 days prior to the dissemination of such materials, the materials used in the sale of the securities shall be submitted to

   [.2]2. (a) Within 90 days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall have and retain qualified management. At a minimum, such management shall include:
