(a) Within sixty (60) days from the effective date of this ORDER, the Board of Directors shall develop a written plan ("Loan Risk Plan") to lessen the Bank's risk position with respect to each borrower who or which had outstanding principal debt owing to the Bank in excess of $100,000 and classified "Substandard" or "Doubtful," in whole or in part, in the 2004 Examination report. The Bank shall add to its Loan Risk Plan loans in excess of $100,000 which are so classified in any subsequent examination. In developing such plan, the Bank shall, at a minimum:

    (i) in the case of loans, review the financial position of each such borrower, including source of repayment, repayment ability, and alternative repayment sources; and

    (ii) evaluate the available collateral for each such credit, including possible actions to improve the Bank's collateral position.

Based upon such review and evaluation, the Loan Risk Plan shall:

    (i) establish target dollar levels to which the Bank shall reduce the aggregate dollar volume of "Substandard" or "Doubtful" classifications as of the 2004 Examination, as well as any additional assets that are in need of criticism according to internal Bank review; and

    (ii) provide for the submission of written monthly progress reports to the Bank's Board of Directors for review and notation in the minutes of the Board of Directors. Exhibit A provides the form for the progress report.

As used in this paragraph 8, "reduce" means to (1) collect, (2) charge off, or (3) improve the quality of such assets so as to warrant removal of any adverse classification by the FDIC and the Bureau of Financial Institutions. Payment of loans with the proceeds of the loans made by the Bank, other than loans to qualified third party borrowers, does not constitute "reduction", "collection", "charge-off", or "improvement" for purposes of this paragraph.

(b) The Loan Risk Plan described by paragraph 8(a) of this Order shall be submitted to the Regional Director and the Superintendent for review and comment within sixty (60) days from the effective date of this ORDER. No sooner than thirty (30) days, but under no circumstances more than sixty (60) days after such submission, the Board of Directors shall approve the Loan Risk Plan, taking into consideration any regulatory comments, and such approval shall be recorded in the minutes of the Board of Directors. Subsequent modifications to the Loan Risk Plan may be made only after giving the Regional Director and the Superintendent written notice of the proposed modifications, and after consideration of any responsive comments submitted by the Regional Director and the Superintendent within thirty (30) days from their receipt of the notice of proposed modifications. No such modification shall become effective until approved by the Board of Directors, and such approval shall be recorded in the minutes of the Board of Directors. The Bank, its directors, officers and employees shall follow the Loan Risk Plan and any subsequent modification thereto.

[.9] 9. The Bank shall not extend or renew, directly or indirectly, credit to, or for the benefit of, any borrower who or which has a loan or other extension of credit with the Bank that had been charged off or classified, in whole or in part, "Loss," "Doubtful," or "Substandard," and is uncollected, unless a majority of the Bank's Board of Directors: (a) determines that such extension or renewal is in the best interest of the Bank; (b) determines that the Bank has satisfied the requirements set out in paragraph 8 of this ORDER as to such borrower; and (c) approves such extension or renewal. A written record of the Board of Directors' determination and approval of any extension or renewal under the terms of this paragraph 9 shall be maintained in the credit file of the affected borrower(s) as well as the minutes of the Board of Directors.

[.10] 10. The Bank shall not accrue interest on any loan that is, or becomes, ninety (90) days or more delinquent as to principal or interest, unless the loan is both well secured and in the process of collection. For purposes of this paragraph 10, "well secured" and "in the process of collection" shall have the same meaning as those terms
{{06-30-05 p.12389.7}}

have in the prevailing Instructions. The Bank shall reverse on its books all previously accrued but uncollected interest on any loan that has ceased to accrue interest pursuant to this provision.

[.11] 11. Within ninety (90) days of the effective date of this ORDER, the Bank shall significantly reduce the dollar volume of assets subject to Special Mention as listed in the 2004 Examination report, or otherwise sufficiently improve such assets so as to warrant removal from the Special Mention Category.
