White River Capital, Inc. Announces Signing Of Merger Agreement To Be Acquired By Parthenon Capital Partners

Additional Information for Shareholders

In connection with the proposed merger, White River will prepare a proxy statement to be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). When completed, a definitive proxy statement and a form of proxy will be mailed to the shareholders of White River. WHITE RIVER’S SHAREHOLDERS ARE URGED TO READ THE PROXY STATEMENT REGARDING THE PROPOSED MERGER BECAUSE IT WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROPOSED MERGER. White River’s shareholders will be able to obtain, without charge, a copy of the proxy statement (when available) and other relevant documents filed with the SEC from the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov. White River’s shareholders will also be able to obtain, without charge, a copy of the proxy statement and other relevant documents (when available) by directing a request by mail or telephone to White River Capital, Inc., 6051 El Tordo, P.O. Box 9876, Rancho Santa Fe, California 92067, Attention: Corporate Secretary, or from White River’s website, http://www.whiterivercap.com.

White River and its directors and officers may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from White River’s shareholders with respect to the special meeting of shareholders that will be held to consider the proposed merger. Information about White River’s directors and executive officers and their ownership of White River’s common stock is set forth in the proxy statement for White River’s 2012 annual meeting of shareholders, as filed with the SEC on Schedule 14A on March 30, 2012. Shareholders may obtain additional information regarding the interests of White River and its directors and executive officers in the proposed merger, which may be different than those of White River’s shareholders generally, by reading the proxy statement and other relevant documents regarding the proposed merger, when filed with the SEC.
