TriState Capital Closes $105 Million Capital Raise, Issuing Common Equity, Convertible Preferred Stock and Warrants to Funds Managed by Stone Point Capital LLC

PITTSBURGH, PA – December 30, 2020 – TriState Capital Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: TSC) (“TriState Capital” or the “company”) on Wednesday completed its previously announced plans to raise $105 million in capital, pursuant to its October 10, 2020 definitive investment agreement with funds managed by Stone Point Capital LLC (“Stone Point”).

The company issued 2,770,083 shares of TriState Capital common stock to the Stone Point-managed funds for $40 million in the company’s first common equity raise since its 2013 initial public offering. Following the investment, these shares of common stock will represent approximately 8.5% of TriState Capital’s common stock outstanding. Under the definitive investment agreement and consistent with applicable banking regulations, at no time may the Stone Point-managed funds own, control or have the power to vote 10% or more of TriState Capital’s voting securities.

The company also issued 650 shares of a new Series C perpetual non-cumulative convertible non-voting preferred stock, no par value (the “Series C Preferred Stock”), to the Stone Point-managed funds for $65 million. The Series C Preferred Stock will pay a quarterly dividend in cash or additional shares of Series C Preferred Stock at an annualized rate of 6.75% and, after the second anniversary of the closing of the investment, may convert into shares of a future series of non-voting common stock or, when transferred under certain limited circumstances to a holder other than Stone Point, voting common stock, at the price of $13.75 per share. Stone Point will not be entitled to acquire additional shares of TriState Capital’s voting common stock through a conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock. Subject to certain exceptions, the Series C Preferred Stock will be convertible into common stock of the company when transferred to a holder other than Stone Point.

In addition, the company issued warrants to the Stone Point-managed funds that are exercisable for an aggregate of 922,438 shares at an exercise price of $17.50, subject to certain adjustments. The warrants are exercisable for a future series of TriState Capital non-voting common stock or, only in the event of certain transfers to third-party holders, voting common stock. Stone Point will not be entitled to acquire additional shares of TriState Capital’s voting common stock through an exercise of the warrants.

Based on the entirety of this transaction, on a fully diluted basis, a total of 8,419,793 shares of common stock will be issued or become issuable upon the conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock and exercise of the warrants (exclusive of shares issuable in connection with potential in-kind dividend payments on the Series C Preferred Stock) and, in each case, included in the company’s computation of diluted earnings per share (regardless of whether such shares are issued as common stock or a future series of non-voting common stock).

The foregoing summary of the terms of the definitive investment agreement and the exhibits thereto does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the definitive investment agreement, as amended, and the exhibits thereto.

The securities sold to Stone Point in this transaction have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or applicable state securities laws, and accordingly may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and such applicable state securities laws.

This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, any security, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
