Special Redemption: The Company may redeem the Notes, in whole but not in part, at any time, including prior to June 15, 2027, subject to obtaining the prior approval of the Federal Reserve and the holders of our senior indebtedness to the extent such approval is then required under the capital adequacy rules of the Federal Reserve or terms governing our senior indebtedness, respectively, if (1) the Company receives an opinion from independent tax counsel to the effect that (a) there has been an amendment or change (including any announced prospective amendment or change) in law, (b) an administrative or judicial action has been announced or taken, (c) there has been an amendment to or change in any official position with respect to, or interpretation of, an administrative or judicial action or a law or regulation that differs from the previously generally accepted position or interpretation, or (d) there is a threatened challenge in connection with an audit of the Company or a similar issuer, in each case, as a result of which, there is a more than insubstantial increase in the risk that interest payable by the Company on the Notes is not, or within 90 days of the date of such opinion, will not be deductible by the Company, in whole or in part, for U.S. federal income tax purposes; (2) the Company makes a good faith determination that as a result of a change or proposed change in law, rules or regulation, or an official administration action or pronouncement, there is a more than an insubstantial risk that the Notes could not be recognized as Tier 2 Capital for regulatory capital purposes, or (3) the Company is required to register as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, in each case, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed plus any accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date.

Ranking:

The Notes will be unsecured, subordinated obligations
of the Company and:

 

·      will
rank junior in right of payment and upon the Company’s liquidation to any of the Company’s existing and all future Senior
Debt (as defined in the indenture pursuant to which the Notes will be issued and described under “Description of the Notes”
in the preliminary prospectus supplement);

 

·      will
rank equal in right of payment and upon our liquidation with any of the Company’s existing and all of its future indebtedness the
terms of which provide that such indebtedness ranks equally with the Notes;

 

·      will rank senior in right of payment and upon the Company’s liquidation to (i) its existing junior subordinated
debentures and (ii) any of its future indebtedness the terms of which provide that such indebtedness ranks junior in right of
payment to note indebtedness such as the Notes; and

 

·      will
be effectively subordinated to the Company’s future secured indebtedness to the extent of the value of the collateral securing such
indebtedness, and structurally subordinated to the existing and future indebtedness of the Company’s subsidiaries, including without
limitation West Bank’s depositors, liabilities to general creditors and liabilities arising in the ordinary course of business or
otherwise.

 

As of March 31, 2022, on a consolidated
basis, the Company’s outstanding debt and deposits totaled approximately $3.3 billion, which included approximately $3.1 billion
of deposit liabilities at West Bank. In addition, as of March 31, 2022, the Company (at the holding company level) had $40 million
of indebtedness that would rank senior to the Notes, no indebtedness that would rank pari passu to the Notes, and $20.5 million
of indebtedness that would rank junior to the Notes.

We
expect that delivery of the Notes will be made against payment for the Notes on or about Settlement Date indicated above, which will be
the
third business day following the trade date of June 9, 2022 (this settlement cycle being referred to as “T+3”).
Under Rule 15c6-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market generally will be required to
settle in two business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade
the Notes on any date prior to the second business day preceding the Settlement Date will be required, by virtue of the fact that the
notes will initially settle in 3 business days (T+3), to specify alternative settlement arrangements to prevent a failed settlement and
should consult their own investment advisor.]
