On November 22, 2019, Security Federal Corporation, a South Carolina corporation (the “Company”) entered into two Subordinated Note Purchase Agreements (each, a “Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional accredited investors and qualified institutional buyers (the “Purchasers”) to which the Company sold and issued $17.5 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.25% fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes due 2029 (the “10-Year Notes”) and $12.5 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.25% fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes due 2034 (the “15-Year Notes”, and together with the 10-Year Notes, the “Notes”).
The Purchase Agreements contain certain customary representations, warranties and covenants made by the Company, on the one hand, and the Purchasers, severally and not jointly, on the other hand. The Notes were offered and sold by the Company to eligible purchasers in a private offering in reliance on the exemption from the registration requirements of Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the provisions of Rule 506 of Regulation D thereunder (the “Offering”).
The 10-Year Notes have a stated maturity of November 22, 2029, and bear interest at a fixed rate of 5.25% per year, from and including November 22, 2019 but excluding November 22, 2024, computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months, payable semi-annually in arrears on June 1 and December 1 of each year commencing June 1, 2020. From and including November 22, 2024 to but excluding the maturity date or early redemption date, the interest rate shall reset semi-annually to an interest rate equal to the then-current three-month LIBOR rate plus 369 basis points, computed on the basis of a 360-day year and the actual number of days elapsed, payable semi-annually in arrears on June 1 and December 1.

From and including November 22, 2029 to but excluding the maturity date or early redemption date, the interest rate for the 15-Year Notes shall reset semi-annually to an interest rate equal to the then-current three-month LIBOR rate plus 357 basis points, computed on the basis of a 360-day year and the actual number of days elapsed, payable semi-annually in arrears on June 1 and December 1.
The Notes are not convertible into or exchangeable for any other securities or assets of the Company or any of its subsidiaries. The Notes are not subject to redemption at the option of the holder. Prior to November 22, 2024, with respect to the 10-Year Notes, and November 22, 2029, with respect to the 15-Year Notes, the Company may redeem the Notes, in whole at any time, or in part from time to time, only under certain limited circumstances set forth in the Notes. On or after November 22, 2024, with respect to the 10-Year Notes, and November 22, 2029, with respect to the 15-Year Notes, the Company may redeem the Notes at its option, in whole at any time, or in part from time to time, or in part on any interest payment date. Any redemption by the Company would be at a redemption price equal to 100% of the outstanding principal amount of the Notes being redeemed, together with any accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes being redeemed to but excluding the date of redemption.
