PremierWest Bancorp Outlines Reasons for, and Urges All Shareholders to Vote "FOR," the Proposed Merger

MEDFORD, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 -- PremierWest Bancorp (NASDAQ: PRWT) ("PremierWest"), parent company of PremierWest Bank, today outlined the primary reasons for its Board of Directors' recommendation to the company's shareholders to vote "FOR" the proposals in its proxy statement for the upcoming Special Meeting of shareholders. This meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time at the Rogue Valley Country Club located at 2660 Hillcrest Road, Medford, Oregon 97504. At the Special Meeting the shareholders are being asked to consider and vote on the approval of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated October 29, 2012, among PremierWest, Starbuck Bancshares, Inc. ("Starbuck") and Pearl Merger Sub Corp, pursuant to which PremierWest will merge with and into Pearl Merger Sub Corp., with Pearl Merger Sub Corp. as the surviving entity.

The Board of Directors of PremierWest determined that the proposed merger is in the best interests of PremierWest and its shareholders and recommends a vote "FOR" the proposed merger, in part, for the following reasons:

  • PremierWest needs to substantially increase its capital base to meet regulatory requirements, resolve remaining credit issues and remain competitive;
  • Efforts to raise capital from private equity and institutional investors have not been acceptable to the US Treasury as our preferred shareholder through the TARP program and any capital raise would be highly dilutive to existing shareholders;
  • Despite significant efforts, no other acquirer stepped forward with an offer to acquire PremierWest at a value that was higher than that being offered by Starbuck; and
  • Starbuck will pay-off or assume PremierWest's obligations under its $30.9 million of junior subordinated debentures issued in connection with its trust preferred securities ("TruPS"). If the merger is not completed, the twenty quarter permissible deferral period for payments on the TruPS will expire in the fourth quarter of 2014, and if our Consent Order with state and federal regulators remains in effect and we are unable to obtain consent from our regulators to pay accrued interest at the end of the permissible deferral period, we would default on the TruPS.

PremierWest shareholders are urged to read the full definitive proxy statement filed by PremierWest with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on January 4, 2013 and previously sent to shareholders for additional information regarding the proposed merger.

If you haven't already voted, we encourage you to vote. Shareholders of record may vote in person at the Special Meeting. Please note: If you hold your shares at a brokerage firm, and you wish to vote in person, you must obtain a legal proxy document from your firm and present it at the time you vote at the meeting. Contact your brokerage firm for instructions on how to obtain a legal proxy. Ballots will be available at the meeting for those shareholders whose shares are not held at a brokerage firm or who hold a valid legal proxy.

If you have any questions or need any assistance voting your shares, please call Georgeson Inc., PremierWest's proxy solicitor, toll-free at 1-877-278-9670.
