Item 5.02

Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

(e) Adoption of Amended and Restated Supplemental Nonqualified Retirement Plan

Effective as of January 1, 2024, Civista Bancshares, Inc. (the “Company”) amended and restated its Supplemental Nonqualified Retirement Plan (the “SERP”), which was originally established effective as of January 1, 2011, to incorporate prior amendments to the SERP, to clarify certain provisions and eliminate duplicate provisions, and to make certain changes to the calculation and vesting of benefits. In particular, the amended and restated SERP (i) increases the benefit at age 65 for certain participants, (ii) provides that the early retirement benefit for a vested participant who retires before age 65 will be calculated as the present value of the age 65 benefit, calculated using the five-year United States Treasury Constant Maturity rate for the month of December preceding the start of the year in which the benefit is calculated, and (iii) provides that the late retirement benefit for a vested participant who retires after age 65 but before age 75 will be calculated based on the deferred present value of the age 65 benefit calculated using a 5% interest rate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event will a participant’s benefit be lower than the benefit would have been under the terms of the pre-amendment SERP.

Under the SERP, as amended and restated, a participant generally will vest in his or her retirement benefit over 10 years of service. Vesting will be accelerated in the event that a participant becomes disabled before completing 10 years of service. Except when delayed pursuant to the requirements of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code, payment of the SERP retirement benefit will begin on the first day of the second month following the participant’s separation from service and continue for a period of 10 years thereafter. Generally, if a participant dies or is terminated for cause (as defined in the SERP) before payment of the retirement benefit has commenced, the participant will forfeit any right to payment of a retirement benefit.

The Company or one of its subsidiaries has purchased split dollar life insurance policies in order to fund the obligations under the SERP. Generally, these policies provide participants with a death benefit equal to the retirement benefit a participant would have received under the SERP had the participant not died before separating from service.

The foregoing summary does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the SERP, as amended and restated effective as of January 1, 2024, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
