The issuance of the shares in the private placement was previously approved by the Company's shareholders at the 2013 annual meeting. Emerald and the group of institutional investors have each agreed to purchase up to 2,400,000 shares of Class A common stock in the private placement. The Company was pleased to be able to attract seasoned financial services institutional investors in the private placement.

Royal's obligation to issue such shares in the private placement, and the purchasers' obligation to purchase such shares, is contingent on, among other things (i) Royal receiving approval from the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve to bid to purchase shares of Royal's Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A issued in 2009 to the United States Department of the Treasury under the TARP program in an auction of such shares to be conducted by the Treasury, and (ii) at least part of Royal's bid to purchase such shares being accepted in such auction. The number of shares to be issued in the private placement is subject to adjustment based on the total purchase price of the Series A TARP shares that Royal is successful in purchasing in the auction. In addition, no purchaser will be obligated to purchase, and Royal will not be obligated to issue shares to any purchaser, if after giving effect to the issuance of such shares such purchaser would own more than 9.9% of the Class A common stock outstanding, except for existing shareholders who currently own in excess of that amount. All shares issued in the private placement will be sold at a price of $1.20 per share. The date of the auction has not been scheduled.

As previously announced, the Company has filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission with respect to a shareholder rights offering for up to 5,000,000 Class A shares that the Company expects to conduct in connection with the auction described above. The purchase price for the Company's Class A shares in the shareholder rights offering will be $1.20 per share.
