Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 10, 2017, to that certain Real Estate Sales Agreement by and between National Bank of Commerce (“the Bank”), a subsidiary of National Commerce Corporation (the “Company”), as buyer, and 280 Associates, L.L.C., an Alabama limited liability company, as seller (the “Seller”), as originally entered into on May 3, 2017 and subsequently amended on June 26, 2017, July 3, 2017, July 21, 2017 and July 28, 2017 (together, the “Agreement”), the Bank, through its counsel, notified the Seller in writing of the Bank’s completion of its due diligence investigation (subject to the receipt of certain estoppels) on a parcel of real property and the commercial office building thereon located at 600 Luckie Drive in unincorporated Jefferson County, Alabama (the “Property”) for a total purchase price of $13,750,000 (the “Purchase Price”). As further described in the Agreement, the delivery of the notice caused the Agreement to become binding on the Bank by effectively terminating the Bank’s unilateral right to terminate the Agreement for any reason without penalty.

The Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants that are customary of real estate purchase and sale agreements. The Bank entered into the transaction in furtherance of its banking activities and the Company’s growth and expansion strategy. The Bank intends to relocate its main office to the Property and to operate a retail bank branch from the location. The Property includes approximately 68,843 square feet of usable space, of which the Bank expects to initially utilize approximately 33%, with the remaining space expected to be leased to other commercial tenants. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has approved the relocation, subject to the requirement that the Bank seek re-approval if the relocation has not been completed within eighteen months of the approval date.

The Agreement stipulates that the closing of the Bank’s purchase of the Property will occur on or before August 24, 2017. The Purchase Price, net of earnest money payments made by the Bank during the due diligence period, is expected to be funded from cash currently held by the Bank.

Copies of the original Agreement and the amendments thereto are attached as exhibits to this Current Report on Form8-K and are incorporated by reference herein. The foregoing description of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibits.
