In connection with the signing of the definitive agreement, Pacific Premier entered into an employment agreement with San Diego Trust Bank’s current Chief Operating Officer Toby Reschan, which will become effective upon consummation of the acquisition. Mr. Reschan will become the senior executive for Pacific Premier in the San Diego region going forward and will be responsible for overseeing the existing offices and continued expansion. Michael E. Perry, San Diego Trust Bank's founder, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, will remain engaged as a shareholder and supporter of the combined entity.
The transaction is currently valued at approximately $30.6 million. San Diego Trust Bank shareholders will have a choice between electing to receive $13.41 per share in cash or 1.114x shares of PPBI common stock for each share of San Diego Trust Bank or a combination thereof, subject to the overall requirement that 50% of the consideration will be in the form of cash and 50% will be in the form of PPBI stock. The number of shares of Pacific Premier common stock to be issued to San Diego Trust Bank shareholders is based on a fixed exchange ratio provided that Pacific Premier’s stock price remains between $10.83 and $13.24 as measured by the 10-day average closing price immediately prior to closing of the transaction. The value of the stock portion of consideration will fluctuate based on the value of PPBI common stock. To the extent the average closing price of Pacific Premier common stock is outside this price range for Pacific Premier common stock, then the exchange ratio will adjust to reflect the increase or decrease of Pacific Premier common stock that is outside of this range.
On a pro forma combined basis with Pacific Premier’s pending acquisition of First Associations Bank (“FAB”) and the proposed acquisition of San Diego Trust Bank, Pacific Premier would have total assets of $1.7 billion, total loans outstanding of $1.0 billion and total deposits of $1.4 billion as of December 31, 2012 (unaudited).
