III.  Acquiring Financial Institution and Your Insured Deposits

All insured deposit accounts have been transferred to The Citizens Banking Company, Sandusky, OH ("assuming institution") and will be available immediately.  Your bank will re-open during regular business hours at the former Miami Valley Bank main office and branch.

You may view more information about The Citizens Banking Company by visiting their web site at The Citizens Banking Company (CITIZENSBANK)

Principal and interest on insured accounts, through October 4, 2007, 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 may 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 mail you a Receiver Certificate. This certificate entitles you to share proportionately in any funds recovered through the assets of Miami Valley Bank. This means that you may eventually recover some of your uninsured funds.

All accounts that exceed the $100,000 insurance limit, and/or all accounts that appear to be related and exceed this limit, are reviewed by the FDIC to determine their ownership and insurance coverage. If it appears that you have potentially uninsured funds, an FDIC Claim Agent will contact you, by either telephone or mail, regarding your account(s). Or, you may call 1-800-451-1093 between 9:00 am and 10:00 pm EST to arrange for a telephone interview with a Claim Agent.  The Claim Agent may direct you to download and submit a particular form that will assist in expediting the processing of your claim.

Your transferred deposits will be separately insured from any accounts you may already have at The Citizens Banking Company for six months after the failure of Miami Valley Bank. Checks that were drawn on Miami Valley Bank that did not clear before the institution closed will be honored up to the insurance limit. If you have questions about your account(s) transferred to the assuming bank, you may speak to an FDIC representative regarding deposit insurance by calling 1-800-451-1093.

FDIC as Receiver of Miami Valley Bank,
1601 Bryan Street
Dallas, TX 75201
Attention: Claims Agent

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 4, 2007, Miami Valley Bank, Lakeview, Ohio, (FIN #10002) was closed by the Department of Financial Institutions for the State of Ohio, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (''FDIC'') was appointed as its receiver (''Receiver''). In complying with its statutory duty to resolve the institution in the method that is least costly to the deposit insurance fund, see 12 U.S.C. 1823(c)(4)), the FDIC facilitated a transaction with The Citizens Banking Company, Sandusky, Ohio, to assume the insured deposits of the failed institution, while retaining the remaining assets of the bank for later disposition.

Section 11(d)(11)(A) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, 12 U.S.C. 1821(d)(11)(A), sets forth the order of priority for distribution of amounts realized from the liquidation or other resolution of an insured depository institution to pay claims. Under the statutory order of priority, administrative expenses and deposit liabilities must be paid in full before any distribution may be made to general unsecured creditors or any lower priority claims.

As of December 31, 2010, the value of assets available for distribution by the Receiver, together with all expected recovery sources, was $14,671,702. As of the same date, administrative expenses and depositor liabilities equaled $41,374,312, exceeding available assets by at least $26,702,610. Accordingly, the FDIC has determined that insufficient assets exist to make any distribution on general unsecured creditor claims (and any lower priority claims) and therefore all such claims, asserted or unasserted, will recover nothing and have no value.
