IV.  Acquiring Financial Institution

All insured non-brokered deposit accounts have been transferred to SunTrust Bank based in Atlanta, Georgia ("assuming institution") and will be available immediately.  Your bank will re-open on Monday during regular business hours at the former First Priority Bank main office and branch locations.

Principal and interest on insured accounts, through August 1, 2008, are fully insured by the FDIC, up to the insurance limit of $100,000.  You will receive full payment for your insured account.  Certain entitlements and different types of accounts can be insured for more than the $100,000 limit.  IRA funds are insured separately from other types of accounts, up to a $250,000 limit.

If it is determined that you have uninsured funds, the FDIC will generate and mail to you a Receiver Certificate.  This certificate entitles you to share proportionately in any funds recovered through the disposal of the assets of First Priority Bank.  This means that you will eventually recover some of your uninsured funds.

Checks that were drawn on First Priority Bank will be honored up to your available balance or the insured amount.  You may withdraw funds from any transferred account without an early withdrawal penalty until you enter into a new deposit agreement with SunTrust Bank.  A hold may be in place on deposits accounts due to delinquent loans where the depositor is the borrower or guarantor.  Additionally, any account pledged as collateral for a loan will be held.
