and Madison County in West Tennessee."

publicly traded community bank will enhance our relationship opportunities and allow us to continue to
provide the highest quality of service to our communities. By partnering with Heritage, we can enjoy
the benefits provided by a larger institution while keeping the community bank focus that we enjoy

If approved, the deal will close in the third quarter. HopFed would have consolidated assets over $1.1 billion afterwards, and deposits over $900 million.
