Item 8.01. Other Events.

On August 11, 2022, First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC, the parent mutual holding company of First Seacoast Bancorp, adopted a Plan of Conversion and Reorganization (the “Plan”) pursuant to which First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC will undertake a “second-step” conversion and First Seacoast Bank, the wholly-owned subsidiary of First Seacoast Bancorp, will reorganize from the two-tier mutual holding company structure to the fully-public stock holding company structure. Following the conversion and reorganization, First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC will cease to exist and a newly-chartered stock holding company (the “New Holding Company”) will succeed to First Seacoast Bancorp as the stock holding company of First Seacoast Bank. First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC currently owns approximately 55.7% of the outstanding shares of common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp.

Pursuant to the Plan, (i) First Seacoast Bank will become the wholly-owned subsidiary of the New Holding Company, (ii) the shares of common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp owned by persons other than First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC (the shares owned by First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC will be canceled) will be converted into shares of common stock of the New Holding Company based on an exchange ratio designed to preserve the percentage ownership interests of such persons (excluding shares of common stock of the New Holding Company purchased in the stock offering described below and cash received in lieu of issuance of fractional shares of common stock of the New Holding Company, and as adjusted to reflect certain assets held by First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC), and (iii) the New Holding Company will offer and sell shares of common stock, representing the ownership interest of First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC in First Seacoast Bancorp, in a subscription offering and, if necessary, in a community offering and a syndicated community offering. The Plan establishes June 30, 2021 as the eligibility record date for determining the eligible account holders of First Seacoast Bank entitled to receive first priority non-transferable subscription rights to subscribe for shares of common stock of the New Holding Company in the subscription offering. The number and price of shares of common stock of the New Holding Company to be sold in the offering and the exchange ratio will be based on the pro forma market value of the New Holding Company, as determined by an independent appraisal.

The Plan is subject to regulatory approval as well as approval by the members of First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC (depositors and certain borrowers of First Seacoast Bank) and by stockholders of First Seacoast Bancorp (including approval by the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp owned by persons other than First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC).

The foregoing summary of the Plan is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Plan, which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 to this Form 8-K and which is incorporated into this Item 8.01 by reference.

Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On August 12, 2022, First Seacoast Bancorp issued a press release announcing the adoption of the Plan. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated into this Item 7.01 by reference.

PLAN OF CONVERSION AND REORGANIZATION
OF
FIRST SEACOAST BANCORP, MHC

1.
INTRODUCTION
This Plan of Conversion and Reorganization (the “Plan”) provides for the conversion and reorganization of First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC, a federally-chartered mutual holding company (the “Mutual Holding Company”), from the mutual to the capital stock form of organization (the “Conversion”).  Currently, the Mutual Holding Company owns approximately 55.7% of the outstanding shares of common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp, a federally-chartered stock corporation (the “Mid-Tier Holding Company”), and the Mid-Tier Holding Company owns 100% of the outstanding shares of common stock of First Seacoast Bank (the “Bank”), a federally-chartered stock savings bank.  As part of the Conversion, (i) a new stock holding company (the “Holding Company”) will be established to succeed to all of the rights and obligations of the Mutual Holding Company and the Mid-Tier Holding Company, and (ii) the Holding Company will issue shares of Holding Company Common Stock in the Offering and the Exchange Offering.  The Subscription Shares will be offered for sale in the Offering upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Plan.  The subscription rights granted to Participants in the Subscription Offering are set forth in Sections 8 through 11 of this Plan.  All sales of Subscription Shares in the Community Offering, in the Syndicated Community Offering or in the Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering, or in any other manner permitted by the Bank Regulators, will be at the sole discretion of the Boards of Directors of the Bank and the Holding Company.  As part of the Conversion, each Minority Stockholder will receive Exchange Shares in exchange for its Minority Shares in the Exchange Offering.  The Conversion will have no impact on depositors, borrowers or other customers of the Bank.  After the Conversion, the Bank’s insured deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC to the extent provided by applicable law.  The purpose of the Conversion is to convert the Mutual Holding Company to the capital stock form of organization, which will provide the Bank and the Holding Company with additional capital to grow and respond to changing regulatory and market conditions.  The Conversion will also provide the Bank and the Holding Company with greater flexibility to undertake corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions and branch expansions.
This Plan has been unanimously adopted by the Boards of Directors of the Mutual Holding Company, the Mid-Tier Holding Company and the Bank.  This Plan also must be approved by at least: (i) a majority of the total votes eligible to be cast by Voting Members at the Members Meeting; (ii) two-thirds of the total votes eligible to be cast by Stockholders at the Stockholders Meeting; and (iii) a majority of the total votes eligible to be cast by Minority Stockholders at the Stockholders Meeting.  Approval of this Plan by the Voting Members and by the Stockholders shall constitute approval of each of the constituent transactions necessary to implement this Plan, including the MHC Merger and the Mid-Tier Merger.  The Federal Reserve must approve this Plan before it is presented to Voting Members and Stockholders for their approval.

The Mid-Tier Holding Company will mail to all Stockholders as of the Stockholder Voting Record Date a proxy statement describing this Plan, which will be submitted to a vote of Stockholders at the Stockholders Meeting. The Holding Company also will mail to all Participants a Prospectus and Order Form for the purchase of Subscription Shares.  In addition, all Participants will receive, or will be given the opportunity to request by either telephone or by letter addressed to the Bank’s Secretary, a copy of this Plan as well as the articles of incorporation and bylaws of the Holding Company.  This Plan must be approved by at least: (i) a majority of the total votes eligible to be cast by Voting Members at the Members Meeting; (ii) two-thirds of the total votes eligible to be cast by Stockholders at the Stockholders Meeting; and (iii) a majority of the total votes eligible to be cast by Minority Stockholders at the Stockholders Meeting.  Upon such approval of this Plan, the Mutual Holding Company, the Mid-Tier Holding Company, the Holding Company and the Bank will take all other necessary steps pursuant to applicable laws and regulations to consummate the Conversion.  The Conversion must be completed within twenty-four (24) months of the approval of this Plan by Voting Members.

8


C. The period for the Subscription Offering will be not less than twenty (20) days nor more than forty-five (45) days from the date Participants are first mailed a Prospectus and Order Form, unless extended.  Any Subscription Shares for which subscriptions have not been received in the Subscription Offering may be issued in a Community Offering, and/or a Syndicated Community Offering or a Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering, or in any other manner permitted by the Bank Regulators.  All sales of Subscription Shares must be completed within forty-five (45) days after the last day of the Subscription Offering unless the offering period is extended by the Mutual Holding Company and the Holding Company with the approval of the Bank Regulators.

D. The Conversion will be effected as follows, or in any other manner that is consistent with the purposes of this Plan and applicable laws and regulations.  The choice of which method to effect the Conversion will be made by the Boards of Directors of the Mutual Holding Company, the Mid-Tier Holding Company and the Bank immediately before the closing of the Conversion.  Each of the steps set forth below shall be deemed to occur in such order as is necessary to consummate the Conversion pursuant to this Plan, the intent of the Boards of Directors of the Mutual Holding Company, the Mid-Tier Holding Company and the Bank, and applicable federal and state regulations and policy.  Approval of this Plan by Voting Members and Stockholders also shall constitute approval of each of the transactions necessary to implement this Plan.

(1)
The Holding Company will be organized as a first-tier stock subsidiary of the Mid-Tier Holding Company.
(2)
The Mutual Holding Company will merge with the Mid-Tier Holding Company, with the Mid-Tier Holding Company as the surviving entity, pursuant to the Agreement of Merger attached hereto as Exhibit A, whereby the shares of Mid-Tier Holding Company common stock held by the Mutual Holding Company will be canceled and Members will constructively receive liquidation interests in the Mid-Tier Holding Company in exchange for their ownership interests in the Mutual Holding Company.
(3)
Immediately after the MHC Merger, the Mid-Tier Holding Company will merge with the Holding Company, with the Holding Company as the surviving entity, pursuant to the Agreement of Merger attached hereto as Exhibit B, whereby the Bank will become the wholly-owned subsidiary of the Holding Company.  As part of the Mid-Tier Merger, the liquidation interests in the Mid-Tier Holding Company constructively received by Members as part of the MHC Merger will automatically, without further action on the part of the holders thereof, be exchanged for interests in the Liquidation Account, and each Minority Share shall automatically, without further action on the part of the holder thereof, be converted into and become the right to receive an Exchange Share based upon the Exchange Ratio.
(4)
Immediately after the Mid-Tier Merger, the Holding Company will offer for sale the Subscription Shares in the Offering.

9

(5)
The Holding Company will contribute at least 50% of the net proceeds of the Offering to the Bank in constructive exchange for additional shares of common stock of the Bank and in exchange for the Bank Liquidation Account.
E. As part of the Conversion, the Minority Shares outstanding immediately before the consummation of the Conversion shall automatically, without further action on the part of the holders thereof, be converted into and become the right to receive Exchange Shares based upon the Exchange Ratio.  The basis for exchange of Minority Shares for Exchange Shares shall be fair and reasonable.  Options to purchase shares of Mid-Tier Holding Company common stock that are outstanding immediately before the consummation of the Conversion shall be converted into options to purchase shares of Holding Company Common Stock, with the number of shares subject to the option and the exercise price per share to be adjusted based upon the Exchange Ratio so that the aggregate exercise price remains unchanged, and with the duration of the option remaining unchanged.

F. The Holding Company shall register the Conversion Stock with the SEC and any appropriate state securities authorities.  In addition, the Mid-Tier Holding Company shall prepare preliminary proxy materials as well as other applications and information for review by the SEC in connection with the solicitation of Stockholder approval of this Plan.

G. All assets, rights, interests, privileges, powers, franchises and property (real, personal and mixed) of the Mid-Tier Holding Company and the Mutual Holding Company shall be automatically transferred to and vested in the Holding Company by virtue of the Conversion without any deed or other document of transfer.  The Holding Company, without any order or action on the part of any court or otherwise and without any documents of assumption or assignment, shall hold and enjoy all of the properties, franchises and interests, including appointments, powers, designations, nominations and all other rights and interests as the agent or other fiduciary in the same manner and to the same extent as such rights, franchises, and interests and powers were held or enjoyed by the Mid-Tier Holding Company and the Mutual Holding Company.  The Holding Company shall be responsible for all of the liabilities, restrictions and duties of every kind and description of the Mid-Tier Holding Company and the Mutual Holding Company immediately before the consummation of the Conversion, including liabilities for all debts, obligations and contracts of the Mid-Tier Holding Company and the Mutual Holding Company, matured or unmatured, whether accrued, absolute, contingent or otherwise and whether or not reflected or reserved against on balance sheets, books of accounts or records of the Mid-Tier Holding Company and the Mutual Holding Company.

H. The home office and branch offices of the Bank shall be unaffected by the Conversion.  The executive offices of the Holding Company shall be located at the current executive offices of the Mutual Holding Company and Mid-Tier Holding Company.

4.
HOLDING COMPANY APPLICATIONS AND APPROVALS
The Boards of Directors of the Mutual Holding Company, the Mid-Tier Holding Company, the Holding Company and the Bank shall take all necessary steps to convert the Mutual Holding Company to stock form, form the Holding Company and complete the Offering.  The Mutual Holding Company, Mid-Tier Holding Company, Bank and Holding Company shall make timely applications to the Bank Regulators and filings with the SEC for any requisite regulatory approvals to complete the Conversion.

5.
SALE OF SUBSCRIPTION SHARES
The Subscription Shares will be offered for sale in the Subscription Offering to the Participants in the respective priorities set forth in this Plan.  The Subscription Offering may begin as early as the mailing of the proxy statement for the Members Meeting.  The Holding Company Common Stock will not be insured by the FDIC.  The Bank will not extend credit to any Person to purchase shares of Holding Company Common Stock.
Any Subscription Shares for which subscriptions have not been received in the Subscription Offering may be issued in the Community Offering, subject to the terms and conditions of this Plan.  The Community Offering, if any, will involve an offering of unsubscribed Subscription Shares directly to the general public with a first preference given to natural persons and trusts of natural persons residing in the Local Community and a second preference given to Minority Stockholders as of the Stockholder Voting Record Date.  The Community Offering may begin concurrently with, or at any time during or after the Subscription Offering. The offer and sale of Subscription Shares before the Members Meeting, however, is subject to the approval of this Plan by the Voting Members and by the Stockholders, including Minority Stockholders.
If feasible, any Subscription Shares remaining unsold after the Subscription Offering and any Community Offering may be offered for sale in a Syndicated Community Offering or a Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering, or in any manner approved by the Bank Regulators that will achieve a widespread distribution of the Subscription Shares.  The issuance of Subscription Shares in the Subscription Offering and any Community Offering will be consummated simultaneously on the date the sale of Subscription Shares is consummated in any Syndicated Community Offering or Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering, and only if the required minimum number of Subscription Shares will be issued.
6.
PURCHASE PRICE AND NUMBER OF SUBSCRIPTION SHARES
The total number of shares of Conversion Stock to be offered in the Conversion will be determined jointly by the Boards of Directors of the Mutual Holding Company, the Mid-Tier Holding Company and the Holding Company immediately before the commencement of the Subscription Offering, and will be based on the Appraised Value Range and the Subscription Price.  The Offering Range will be equal to the Appraised Value Range multiplied by the Majority Ownership Interest (as adjusted to reflect assets held by the Mutual Holding Company (other than shares of stock of the Mid-Tier Holding Company)).  The estimated pro forma consolidated market value of the Holding Company will be subject to adjustment within the Appraised Value Range if necessitated by market or financial conditions, with the receipt of any required approvals of the Bank Regulators, and the maximum of the Appraised Value Range may be increased by up to 15% after the commencement of the Subscription Offering to reflect changes in market and financial conditions or demand for the shares.  The number of shares of Conversion Stock issued in the Conversion will be equal to the estimated pro forma consolidated market value of the Holding Company, as may be amended, divided by the Subscription Price, and the number of Subscription Shares issued in the Offering will be equal to the product of (i) the estimated pro forma consolidated market value of the Holding Company, as may be amended, divided by the Subscription Price, and (ii) the Majority Ownership Interest (as adjusted to reflect assets held by the Mutual Holding Company (other than shares of stock of the Mid-Tier Holding Company)).

11

If the product of the Subscription Price multiplied by the number of shares of Conversion Stock to be issued in the Conversion is below the minimum of the Appraised Value Range, or materially above the maximum of the Appraised Value Range, a resolicitation of purchasers may be required, provided that up to a 15% increase above the maximum of the Appraised Value Range will not be deemed material so as to require a resolicitation.  Any resolicitation shall be effected in such manner and within such time as the Mutual Holding Company, the Mid-Tier Holding Company and the Holding Company shall establish, if all required regulatory approvals are obtained.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, shares of Conversion Stock will not be issued unless, before the consummation of the Conversion, the Independent Appraiser confirms to the Bank, the Mutual Holding Company, the Holding Company, and the Bank Regulators, that, to the best knowledge of the Independent Appraiser, nothing of a material nature has occurred which, taking into account all relevant factors, would cause the Independent Appraiser to conclude that the number of shares of Conversion Stock issued in the Conversion multiplied by the Subscription Price is incompatible with its estimate of the aggregate consolidated pro forma market value of the Holding Company.  If such confirmation is not received, the Holding Company may cancel the Offering and the Exchange Offering, extend the Offering and establish a new Subscription Price and/or Appraised Value Range, hold a new Offering and Exchange Offering after canceling the Offering and the Exchange Offering, or take such other action as the Bank Regulators may permit.
The Holding Company Common Stock to be issued in the Conversion shall be fully paid and nonassessable.
7.
RETENTION OF CONVERSION PROCEEDS BY THE HOLDING COMPANY
The Holding Company may retain up to 50% of the net proceeds of the Offering.  The Holding Company believes that the Offering proceeds will provide economic strength to the Holding Company and the Bank for the future in a highly competitive and regulated financial services environment, and would support the growth in the operations of the Holding Company and the Bank through increased lending, acquisitions of financial service organizations, continued diversification into other related businesses and other business and investment activities, including the possible payment of dividends and possible repurchases of the Holding Company Common Stock as permitted by applicable state law and by applicable federal regulations and policy.

SUBSCRIPTION RIGHTS OF ELIGIBLE ACCOUNT HOLDERS (FIRST PRIORITY)
A. Each Eligible Account Holder shall have nontransferable subscription rights to subscribe for in the Subscription Offering up to the greater of $400,000 of Subscription Shares, 0.10% of the total number of Subscription Shares issued in the Offering, or fifteen times the product (rounded down to the next whole number) obtained by multiplying the number of Subscription Shares offered in the Offering by a fraction of which the numerator is the amount of the Eligible Account Holder’s Qualifying Deposit and the denominator is the total amount of Qualifying Deposits of all Eligible Account Holders, in each case on the Eligibility Record Date, subject to the purchase limitations specified in Section 14.

B. If Eligible Account Holders exercise subscription rights for a number of Subscription Shares in excess of the total number of such shares eligible for subscription, the Subscription Shares shall be allocated among the subscribing Eligible Account Holders so as to permit each subscribing Eligible Account Holder to purchase a number of shares sufficient to make his or her total allocation of Subscription Shares equal to the lesser of 100 shares or the number of shares for which such Eligible Account Holder has subscribed.  Any remaining shares will be allocated among the subscribing Eligible Account Holders whose subscriptions remain unsatisfied in the proportion that the amount of the Qualifying Deposit of each Eligible Account Holder whose subscription remains unsatisfied bears to the total amount of the Qualifying Deposits of all Eligible Account Holders whose subscriptions remain unsatisfied.  If the amount so allocated exceeds the amount subscribed for by any one or more Eligible Account Holders, the excess shall be reallocated (one or more times as necessary) among those Eligible Account Holders whose subscriptions are still not fully satisfied on the same principle until all available shares have been allocated.

C. Subscription rights as Eligible Account Holders received by Directors and Officers and their Associates that are based on deposits made by such persons during the twelve (12) months preceding the Eligibility Record Date shall be subordinated to the subscription rights of all other Eligible Account Holders, except as permitted by the Bank Regulators.

SUBSCRIPTION RIGHTS OF EMPLOYEE PLANS (SECOND PRIORITY)
The Employee Plans shall have subscription rights to purchase in the aggregate up to 10% of the Subscription Shares issued in the Offering, including any Subscription Shares to be issued as a result of an increase in the maximum of the Offering Range after commencement of the Subscription Offering and before the completion of the Conversion.  Consistent with applicable laws and regulations and practices and policies, the Employee Plans may use funds contributed by the Holding Company or the Bank and/or borrowed from an independent financial institution or from the Holding Company to exercise such subscription rights, and the Holding Company and the Bank may make scheduled discretionary contributions thereto, provided that such contributions do not cause the Holding Company or the Bank to fail to meet any applicable regulatory capital requirements.  The Employee Plans shall not be deemed to be Associates or Affiliates of or Persons Acting in Concert with any Director or Officer of the Holding Company or the Bank.  Alternatively, if permitted by the Bank Regulators, the Employee Plans may purchase all or a portion of such shares in the open market after the completion of the Conversion.

10.
SUBSCRIPTION RIGHTS OF SUPPLEMENTAL ELIGIBLE ACCOUNT HOLDERS (THIRD PRIORITY)
A. Each Supplemental Eligible Account Holder shall have nontransferable subscription rights to subscribe for in the Subscription Offering up to the greater of $400,000 of Subscription Shares, 0.10% of the total number of Subscription Shares issued in the Offering, or fifteen times the product (rounded down to the next whole number) obtained by multiplying the number of Subscription Shares offered in the Offering by a fraction of which the numerator is the amount of the Supplemental Eligible Account Holder’s Qualifying Deposit and the denominator is the total amount of Qualifying Deposits of all Supplemental Eligible Account Holders, in each case on the Supplemental Eligibility Record Date, subject to the availability of sufficient shares after filling in full all subscription orders of Eligible Account Holders and Employee Plans and subject to the purchase limitations specified in Section 14.

B. If Supplemental Eligible Account Holders exercise subscription rights for a number of Subscription Shares in excess of the total number of such shares eligible for subscription following subscriptions by Eligible Account Holders and Employee Plans, Subscription Shares shall be allocated among the subscribing Supplemental Eligible Account Holders so as to permit each subscribing Supplemental Eligible Account Holder, to the extent possible, to purchase a number of shares sufficient to make his or her total allocation of Subscription Shares equal to the lesser of one hundred (100) shares or the number of shares for which such Supplemental Eligible Account Holder has subscribed.  Any remaining shares will be allocated among the subscribing Supplemental Eligible Account Holders whose subscriptions remain unsatisfied in the proportion that the amount of the Qualifying Deposit of such Supplemental Eligible Account Holder whose subscription remains unsatisfied bears to the total amount of the Qualifying Deposits of all Supplemental Eligible Account Holders whose subscriptions remain unsatisfied.  If the amount so allocated exceeds the amount subscribed for by any one or more Supplemental Eligible Account Holders, the excess shall be reallocated (one or more times as necessary) among those Supplemental Eligible Account Holders whose subscriptions are still not fully satisfied on the same principle until all available shares have been allocated.

11.
SUBSCRIPTION RIGHTS OF OTHER MEMBERS (FOURTH PRIORITY)
A. Each Other Member shall have nontransferable subscription rights to subscribe for in the Subscription Offering up to the greater of $400,000 of Subscription Shares or 0.10% of the total number of shares of Subscription Shares issued in the Offering, subject to the availability of sufficient shares after filling in full all subscription orders of Eligible Account Holders, Employee Plans and Supplemental Eligible Account Holders and subject to the purchase limitations specified in Section 14.

B. If Other Members exercise subscription rights for a number of Subscription Shares is in excess of the total number of such shares available for subscription following subscriptions by Eligible Account Holders, Employee Plans and Supplemental Eligible Account Holders, Subscription Shares will be allocated among Other Members so as to permit each such subscribing Other Member, to the extent possible, to purchase a number of shares sufficient to make his or her total allocation of Subscription Shares equal to the lesser of one hundred (100) shares or the number of shares for which each such Other Member has subscribed.  Any remaining shares will be allocated among the subscribing Other Members whose subscriptions remain unsatisfied in the proportion that the amount of the subscription of each such Other Member bears to the total amount of the subscriptions of all Other Members whose subscriptions remain unsatisfied.

14


12.
COMMUNITY OFFERING
If subscriptions are not received for all Subscription Shares offered for sale in the Subscription Offering, shares for which subscriptions have not been received may be offered for sale in the Community Offering through a direct community marketing program which may use a broker, dealer, consultant or investment banking firm experienced and expert in the sale of savings institutions securities.  Such entities may be compensated on a fixed fee basis or on a commission basis, or a combination thereof.  If orders for Subscription Shares in the Community Offering exceed the number of shares available for sale, shares shall be allocated (to the extent shares remain available) first to cover orders of natural persons (including trusts of natural persons) residing in the Local Community, second to cover orders of Minority Stockholders as of the Stockholder Voting Record Date, and thereafter to cover orders of other members of the general public. If orders for Subscription Shares exceed the number of shares available for sale in a category pursuant to the purchase priorities described above, shares will be allocated within the category so that each member of that category will receive the lesser of one hundred (100) shares or the amount ordered, and thereafter remaining shares will be allocated on an equal number of shares basis per order. In connection with the allocation, orders received for Subscription Shares in the Community Offering will first be filled up to a maximum of two percent (2%) of the shares sold in the Offering, and thereafter any remaining shares will be allocated on an equal number of shares basis per order. The Mutual Holding Company and the Holding Company shall use their best efforts consistent with this Plan to distribute Subscription Shares sold in the Community Offering in such a manner as to promote the widest distribution practicable of such shares.  The Holding Company reserves the right to reject any or all orders, in whole or in part, that are received in the Community Offering.  Any Person may purchase up to $400,000 of Subscription Shares in the Community Offering, subject to the purchase limitations specified in Section 14.

13.
SYNDICATED COMMUNITY OFFERING OR FIRM COMMITMENT UNDERWRITTEN OFFERING
If feasible, the Board of Directors of the Holding Company may determine to offer Subscription Shares not sold in the Subscription Offering or the Community Offering, if any, for sale in a Syndicated Community Offering using a broker, dealer, consultant or investment banking firm experienced and expert in the sale of savings institutions securities.  Such entities may be compensated on a fixed fee basis or on a commission basis, or a combination thereof.  The Syndicated Community Offering shall be subject to such terms, conditions and procedures as may be determined by the Mutual Holding Company and the Holding Company, in a manner that will achieve the widest distribution of Subscription Shares, subject to the right of the Holding Company to accept or reject in whole or in part any orders received in the Syndicated Community Offering. In the Syndicated Community Offering, any Person may purchase up to $400,000 of Subscription Shares, subject to the purchase limitations specified in Section 14.  In addition, unless otherwise approved or permitted by the Federal Reserve, orders received for Subscription Shares in the Syndicated Community Offering will first be filled up to a maximum of two percent (2%) of the shares sold in the Offering, and thereafter any remaining shares will be allocated on an equal number of shares basis per order. Provided that the Subscription Offering has begun, the Holding Company may begin the Syndicated Community Offering at any time.  The Holding Company reserves the right to reject any or all orders, in whole or in part, that are received in the Syndicated Community Offering.

15

Alternatively, if feasible, the Board of Directors may determine to offer Subscription Shares not sold in the Subscription Offering or any Community Offering for sale in a Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering subject to such terms, conditions and procedures as may be determined by the Mutual Holding Company and the Holding Company, subject to the right of the Holding Company to accept or reject in whole or in part any orders in the Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering.  In the Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering, any Person may purchase up to $400,000 of Subscription Shares, subject to the purchase limitations specified in Section 14.  In addition, unless otherwise approved or permitted by the Federal Reserve, orders received for Subscription Shares in the Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering will first be filled up to a maximum of two percent (2%) of the shares sold in the Offering, and thereafter any remaining shares will be allocated on an equal number of shares basis per order.  Provided the Subscription Offering has begun, the Holding Company may begin the Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering at any time.  The Holding Company reserves the right to reject any or all orders, in whole or in part, that are received in the Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering.
If, for any reason, a Syndicated Community Offering or Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering of Subscription Shares not sold in the Subscription Offering or any Community Offering cannot be effected, or if any insignificant residue of Subscription Shares is not sold in the Subscription Offering, Community Offering, or any Syndicated Community Offering or Firm Commitment Underwritten Offering, the Holding Company will use its best efforts to make other arrangements for the disposition of unsubscribed shares aggregating at least the minimum of the Offering Range.  Such other purchase arrangements will be subject to receipt of any required approval of the Bank Regulators.
14.
LIMITATIONS ON PURCHASES
The following limitations shall apply to all purchases and issuances of shares of Conversion Stock:
A. The maximum number of Subscription Shares that may be subscribed for or purchased in all categories in the Offering by any Person or Participant, together with any Associate or group of Persons Acting in Concert, shall not exceed $400,000 of Subscription Shares, except that the Employee Plans may subscribe for up to 10% of the Subscription Shares issued in the Offering (including shares issued in the event of an increase in the maximum of the Offering Range of 15%).

16

B. The maximum number of shares of Holding Company Common Stock that may be issued to or purchased in all categories of the Offering by Officers and Directors and their Associates in the aggregate shall not exceed 25% of the shares of Conversion Stock.
C. The maximum number of Subscription Shares that may be subscribed for or purchased in all categories of the Offering by any Person or Participant together with purchases by any Associate or group of Persons Acting in Concert, combined with Exchange Shares received by any such Person or Participant together with any Associate or group of Persons Acting in Concert, shall not exceed 9.9% of the shares of Conversion Stock, except that this ownership limitation shall not apply to the Employee Plans.  However, Minority Stockholders will not be required to sell any shares of Holding Company Common Stock or be limited from receiving any Exchange Shares or be required to divest themselves of any Exchange Shares as a result of this limitation.
D. A minimum of twenty-five (25) Subscription Shares must be purchased by each Person or Participant purchasing shares in the Offering to the extent those shares are available; provided, however, that if the product of the minimum number of Subscription Shares purchased multiplied the Subscription Price exceeds $500, then such minimum purchase requirement shall be reduced to such number of shares which when multiplied by the price per share shall not exceed $500, as determined by the Board.
E. If the number of shares of Holding Company Common Stock otherwise allocable pursuant to Sections 8 through 13, inclusive, to any Person or that Person’s Associates would be in excess of the maximum number of shares permitted as set forth above, the number of shares of Holding Company Common Stock allocated to each such person shall be reduced to the lowest limitation applicable to that Person, and then the number of shares allocated to each group consisting of a Person and that Person’s Associates shall be reduced so that the aggregate allocation to that Person and his or her Associates complies with the above limits.
Depending upon market or financial conditions, the Boards of Directors of the Holding Company and the Mutual Holding Company, with the receipt of any required approvals of the Bank Regulators and without further approval of Voting Members, may decrease or increase the purchase limitations in this Plan, provided that the maximum purchase limitations may not be increased to a percentage in excess of 5% of the shares issued in the Offering except as provided below.  If the Mutual Holding Company and the Holding Company increase the maximum purchase limitations, the Mutual Holding Company and the Holding Company are only required to resolicit Participants who subscribed for the maximum purchase amount in the Subscription Offering and who indicated a desire to be resolicited on the Order Form and may, in the sole discretion of the Mutual Holding Company and the Holding Company, resolicit certain other large purchasers.  In the event of such a resolicitation, the Mutual Holding Company and the Holding Company shall have the right, in their sole discretion, to require such persons to supply immediately available funds for the purchase of additional Subscription Shares.  Such persons will be prohibited from paying with a personal check, but the Mutual Holding Company and the Holding Company may allow payment by wire transfer.  If the maximum purchase limitation is increased to 5% of the shares issued in the Offering, such limitation may be further increased to 9.99%, provided that orders for Subscription Shares exceeding 5% of the Subscription Shares issued in the Offering shall not exceed in the aggregate 10% of the total Subscription Shares issued in the Offering.  Requests to purchase additional Subscription Shares, if the purchase limitation is so increased, will be determined by the Board of Directors of the Holding Company in its sole discretion.

17

In the event of an increase in the total number of shares offered in the Offering due to an increase in the maximum of the Offering Range of up to 15% (the “Adjusted Maximum”), the additional shares may be used to fill the Employee Plans’ orders before all other orders and then will be allocated in accordance with the priorities set forth in this Plan.
For purposes of this Section 14, (i) Directors, Officers and Employees of the Bank, the Mid-Tier Holding Company, the Mutual Holding Company and the Holding Company or any of their subsidiaries shall not be deemed to be Associates or a group affiliated with each other or otherwise Acting in Concert solely as a result of their capacities as such, (ii) shares purchased by Tax-Qualified Employee Stock Benefit Plans shall not be attributable to the individual trustees or beneficiaries of any such plan for purposes of determining compliance with the limitations set forth in paragraphs A. and B. of this Section 14, and (iii) shares purchased by a Tax-Qualified Employee Stock Benefit Plan pursuant to instructions of an individual in an account in such plan in which the individual has the right to direct the investment, including any plan of the Bank qualified under Section 401(k) of the Code shall be aggregated and included in that individual’s purchases and not attributed to the Tax-Qualified Employee Stock Benefit Plan.
Each Person purchasing Subscription Shares in the Offering shall be deemed to confirm that such purchase does not conflict with the above purchase limitations contained in this Plan.
15.
PAYMENT FOR SUBSCRIPTION SHARES
All payments for Subscription Shares subscribed for in the Subscription Offering and Community Offering must be delivered in full to the Bank or Holding Company, together with a properly completed and executed Order Form, on or before the expiration date of the Offering; provided, however, that if the Employee Plans subscribe for shares in the Subscription Offering, such plans will not be required to pay for the shares at the time they subscribe but rather may pay for such shares subscribed for by such plans at the Subscription Price upon consummation of the Conversion.  Subscription funds will be held in a segregated account at the Bank.
Except as set forth in Section 14.E., above, payment for Subscription Shares shall be made by personal check, money order or bank draft from the subscriber.  Alternatively, subscribers in the Subscription and Community Offerings may pay for the shares for which they have subscribed by authorizing the Bank on the Order Form to make a withdrawal from the designated types of Deposit Accounts at the Bank in an amount equal to the aggregate Subscription Price of such shares.  Such authorized withdrawal shall be without penalty as to premature withdrawal.  If the authorized withdrawal is from a certificate account, and the remaining balance does not meet the applicable minimum balance requirement, the certificate shall be canceled at the time of withdrawal, without penalty, and the remaining balance will earn interest at the passbook rate.  Funds for which a withdrawal is authorized will remain in the subscriber’s Deposit Account but may not be used by the subscriber during the Offering.  Thereafter, the withdrawal will be given effect only to the extent necessary to satisfy the subscription (to the extent it can be filled) at the Subscription Price per share.  Interest will continue to be earned on any amounts authorized for withdrawal until such withdrawal is given effect.  Interest on funds received by check, draft or money order will be paid by the Bank at not less than the passbook rate.  Such interest will be paid from the date payment is processed by the Bank until consummation or termination of the Offering.  If for any reason the Offering is not consummated, all payments made by subscribers in the Subscription and Community Offerings will be refunded to them, with interest.  In case of amounts authorized for withdrawal from Deposit Accounts, refunds will be made by canceling the authorization for withdrawal.  The Bank is prohibited by regulation from knowingly making any loans or granting any lines of credit for the purchase of Subscription Shares in the Offering.

18

16.
MANNER OF EXERCISING SUBSCRIPTION RIGHTS THROUGH ORDER FORMS
As soon as practicable after the registration statement prepared by the Holding Company has been declared effective by the SEC and the stock offering materials have been approved by the Bank Regulators, Order Forms will be distributed to the Eligible Account Holders, Employee Plans, Supplemental Eligible Account Holders and Other Members at their last known addresses appearing on the records of the Bank for the purpose of subscribing for shares of Holding Company Common Stock in the Subscription Offering and will be made available for use by those Persons to whom a Prospectus is delivered.  Each Order Form will be preceded or accompanied by a Prospectus describing the Mutual Holding Company, the Mid-Tier Holding Company, the Holding Company, the Bank, the Holding Company Common Stock and the Offering.  Each Order Form will contain, among other things, the following:
A. A specified date by which all Order Forms must be received by the Holding Company, or its agent, which date shall be not less than twenty (20) days, nor more than forty-five (45) days, following the date on which the Order Forms are first mailed to Participants by the Mutual Holding Company or the Holding Company, and which date will constitute the termination of the Subscription Offering unless extended;
B. The Subscription Price for the Subscription Shares to be sold in the Offering;
C. A description of the minimum and maximum number of Subscription Shares which may be subscribed for pursuant to the exercise of subscription rights or otherwise purchased in the Subscription and Community Offerings;
D. Instructions as to how the recipient of the Order Form is to indicate thereon the number of Subscription Shares for which such Person elects to subscribe and the available alternative methods of payment therefor;
E. An acknowledgment that the recipient of the Order Form has received a final copy of the Prospectus before the execution of the Order Form;
F. A statement to the effect that all subscription rights are nontransferable, will be void at the end of the Subscription Offering, and can only be exercised by delivering to the Holding Company or its agent within the subscription period such properly completed and executed Order Form, together with payment in the full amount of the aggregate purchase price as specified in the Order Form for the Subscription Shares for which the recipient elects to subscribe in the Subscription Offering (or by authorizing on the Order Form that the Bank withdraw said amount from the subscriber’s Deposit Account(s) at the Bank); and

19

G. A statement to the effect that the executed Order Form, once received by the Mutual Holding Company or the Holding Company, may not be modified or amended by the subscriber without the consent of the Holding Company.
Notwithstanding the above, the Mutual Holding Company and the Holding Company reserve the right in their sole discretion to accept or reject orders received on photocopied or facsimiled order forms.
17.
UNDELIVERED, DEFECTIVE OR LATE ORDER FORM; INSUFFICIENT PAYMENT
If Order Forms (a) are not delivered or are not timely delivered by the United States Postal Service, (b) are not received by the Holding Company or are received by the Holding Company or its agent after the expiration date specified thereon, (c) are defectively completed or executed, (d) are not accompanied by the full required payment for the Subscription Shares subscribed for (including cases in which deposit accounts from which withdrawals are authorized are insufficient to cover the amount of the required payment), or (e) are not mailed pursuant to a “no mail” order placed in effect by the Account Holder, the subscription rights of the Participant to whom such rights have been granted will lapse as though such Participant failed to return the completed Order Form within the time period specified thereon; provided, however, that the Holding Company may, but will not be required to, waive any immaterial irregularity on any Order Form or require the submission of corrected Order Forms or the remittance of full payment for subscribed shares by such date as the Holding Company may specify.  The interpretation by the Holding Company of terms and conditions of this Plan and of the Order Forms will be final, subject to the authority of the Bank Regulators.
18.
RESIDENTS OF FOREIGN COUNTRIES AND CERTAIN STATES
The Holding Company will make reasonable efforts to comply with the securities laws of all states in the United States in which Persons entitled to subscribe for Subscription Shares pursuant to this Plan reside.  However, no such Person will be issued subscription rights or be permitted to purchase Subscription Shares in the Subscription Offering if such Person resides in a foreign country; or in a state of the United States with respect to which any of the following apply: (a) a small number of Persons otherwise eligible to subscribe for shares under this Plan reside in such state; (b) the issuance of subscription rights or the offer or sale of Subscription Shares to such Persons would require the Holding Company under the securities laws of such state, to register as a broker, dealer, salesman or agent or to register or otherwise qualify its securities for sale in such state; or (c) such registration or qualification would be impracticable for reasons of cost or otherwise.
19.
ESTABLISHMENT OF LIQUIDATION ACCOUNTS
The Holding Company shall establish a Liquidation Account at the time of the Conversion in an amount equal to the product of (i) the Majority Ownership Interest and (ii) the Mid-Tier Holding Company’s total stockholders’ equity as reflected in the latest statement of financial condition contained in the final Prospectus used in the Conversion, plus the value of the net assets of the Mutual Holding Company as reflected in the latest statement of financial condition of the Mutual Holding Company before the effective date of the Conversion (excluding its ownership of Mid-Tier Holding Company common stock).  Following the Conversion, the Liquidation Account will be maintained for the benefit of the Eligible Account Holders and Supplemental Eligible Account Holders who continue to maintain their Deposit Accounts at the Bank.  Each Eligible Account Holder and Supplemental Eligible Account Holder shall, with respect to his Deposit Account, hold a related inchoate interest in a portion of the Liquidation Account balance in relation to his Deposit Account balance at the Eligibility Record Date or Supplemental Eligibility Record Date, respectively, or to such balance as it may be subsequently reduced, as hereinafter provided.  The Holding Company also shall cause the Bank to establish and maintain the Bank Liquidation Account for the benefit of Eligible Account Holders and Supplemental Eligible Account Holders who continue to maintain their Deposit Accounts at the Bank.

20

In the unlikely event of a complete liquidation of (i) the Bank or (ii) the Bank and the Holding Company (and only in such event) following all liquidation payments to creditors (including those to Account Holders to the extent of their Deposit Accounts), each Eligible Account Holder and Supplemental Eligible Account Holder shall be entitled to receive a liquidating distribution from the Liquidation Account, in the amount of the then adjusted subaccount balance for such Eligible Account Holder’s or Supplemental Eligible Account Holder’s Deposit Account, before any liquidation distribution may be made to any holders of the Holding Company’s capital stock.  A merger, consolidation or similar combination with another depository institution or holding company thereof, in which the Holding Company and/or the Bank is not the surviving entity, shall not be deemed to be a complete liquidation for this purpose.  In such transactions, the Liquidation Account shall be assumed by the surviving holding company or institution.
In the unlikely event of a complete liquidation of either (i) the Bank or (ii) the Bank and the Holding Company (and only in such event) following all liquidation payments to creditors of the Bank (including those to Account Holders to the extent of their Deposit Accounts), at a time when the Bank has a positive net worth and the Holding Company does not have sufficient assets (other than the stock of the Bank) at the time of liquidation to fund its obligations under the Liquidation Account, the Bank, with respect to the Bank Liquidation Account shall immediately pay directly to each Eligible Account Holder and Supplemental Eligible Account Holder an amount necessary to fund the Holding Company’s remaining obligations under the Liquidation Account before any liquidating distribution may be made to any holders of the Bank’s capital stock and without making such amount subject to the Holding Company’s creditors.  Each Eligible Account Holder and Supplemental Eligible Account Holder shall be entitled to receive a distribution from the Bank Liquidation Account, in the amount of the then adjusted subaccount balance for its Deposit Account then held, before any distribution may be made to any holders of the Holding Company’s or Bank’s capital stock.
In the event of a complete liquidation of the Holding Company where the Bank is not also completely liquidating, or in the event of a sale or other disposition of the Holding Company apart from the Bank, each Eligible Account Holder and Supplemental Eligible Account Holder shall be treated as surrendering such Person’s rights to the Liquidation Account and receiving from the Holding Company an equivalent interest in the Bank Liquidation Account.  Each such holder’s interest in the Bank Liquidation Account shall be subject to the same rights and terms as if the Bank Liquidation Account were the Liquidation Account (except that the Holding Company shall cease to exist).

21

The initial subaccount balance for a Deposit Account held by an Eligible Account Holder and Supplemental Eligible Account Holder shall be determined by multiplying the opening balance in the Liquidation Account by a fraction, the numerator of which is the amount of the Qualifying Deposits of such Eligible Account Holder or Supplemental Eligible Account Holder and the denominator of which is the total amount of all Qualifying Deposits of all Eligible Account Holders and Supplemental Eligible Account Holders.  For Deposit Accounts in existence at both the Eligibility Record Date and the Supplemental Eligibility Record Date, separate initial subaccount balances shall be determined on the basis of the Qualifying Deposits in such Deposit Account on each such record date.  Such initial subaccount balance shall not be increased, but shall be subject to downward adjustment as described below.
If, at the close of business on any fiscal year end closing date, commencing on or after the effective date of the Conversion, the deposit balance in the Deposit Account of an Eligible Account Holder or Supplemental Eligible Account Holder is less than the lesser of (i) the balance in the Deposit Account at the close of business on any other annual closing date after the Eligibility Record Date or Supplemental Eligibility Record Date, or (ii) the amount of the Qualifying Deposit in such Deposit Account as of the Eligibility Record Date or Supplemental Eligibility Record Date, then the subaccount balance for such Deposit Account shall be adjusted downward by reducing such subaccount balance in an amount proportionate to the reduction in such deposit balance.  In the event of a downward adjustment, the subaccount balance shall not be subsequently increased, notwithstanding any subsequent increase in the deposit balance of the related Deposit Account.  If any such Deposit Account is closed, the related subaccount shall be reduced to zero.
The creation and maintenance of the Liquidation Account and the Bank Liquidation Account shall not operate to restrict the use or application of any capital of the Holding Company or the Bank, except that neither the Holding Company nor the Bank shall declare or pay a cash dividend on, or repurchase any of, its capital stock if the effect thereof would cause its equity to be reduced below:  (i) the amount required for the Liquidation Account or the Bank Liquidation Account, as applicable; or (ii) the regulatory capital requirements of the Holding Company (to the extent applicable) or the Bank.  Neither the Holding Company nor the Bank shall be required to set aside funds in connection with its obligations hereunder relating to the Liquidation Account and the Bank Liquidation Account, respectively.  Eligible Account Holders and Supplemental Eligible Account Holders do not retain any voting rights in either the Holding Company or the Bank based on their interests in the Liquidation Account or the Bank Liquidation Account.
The amount of the Bank Liquidation Account shall equal at all times the amount of the Liquidation Account, and the Bank Liquidation Account shall be reduced by the same amount and upon the same terms as any reduction in the Liquidation Account.  In no event will any Eligible Account Holder or Supplemental Eligible Account Holder be entitled to a distribution that exceeds such holder’s subaccount balance in the Liquidation Account.

22

For the three (3)-year period following the completion of the Conversion, the Holding Company will not without prior Federal Reserve approval (i) sell or liquidate the Holding Company, or (ii) cause the Bank to be sold or liquidated.  Upon the written request of the Federal Reserve the Holding Company shall, or upon the prior written approval of the Federal Reserve the Holding Company may, at any time after two (2) years from the completion of the Conversion, transfer the Liquidation Account to the Bank, at which time the Liquidation Account shall be assumed by the Bank and the interests of Eligible Account Holders and Supplemental Eligible Account Holders will be solely and exclusively established in the Bank Liquidation Account.  In the event such transfer occurs, the Holding Company shall be deemed to have transferred the Liquidation Account to the Bank and such Liquidation Account shall be subsumed into the Bank Liquidation Account and shall not be subject in any manner or amount to the claims of the Holding Company’s creditors.  Approval of this Plan by the Voting Members and Stockholders shall constitute approval of the transactions described herein.
20.
VOTING RIGHTS OF STOCKHOLDERS
Following consummation of the Conversion, the holders of the voting capital stock of the Holding Company shall have the exclusive voting rights with respect to the Holding Company.
21.
RESTRICTIONS ON RESALE OR SUBSEQUENT DISPOSITION OF SUBSCRIPTION SHARES

B. The restriction on disposition of Subscription Shares set forth above in this Section shall not apply to the following:

For a period of three (3) years following the Conversion, no Officer, Director or their Associates shall purchase, without the prior written approval of the Bank Regulators, any outstanding shares of Holding Company Common Stock except from a broker-dealer registered with the SEC.  This provision shall not apply to negotiated transactions involving more than 1% of the outstanding shares of Holding Company Common Stock, the exercise of any options pursuant to a stock option plan or purchases of Holding Company Common Stock made by or held by any Tax-Qualified Employee Stock Benefit Plan or Non-Tax-Qualified Employee Stock Benefit Plan of the Bank or the Holding Company (including the Employee Plans) which may be attributable to any Officer or Director.  As used herein, the term “negotiated transaction” means a transaction in which the securities are offered and the terms and arrangements relating to any sale are arrived at through direct communications between the seller or any person acting on its behalf and the purchaser or his investment representative.  The term “investment representative” shall mean a professional investment advisor acting as agent for the purchaser and independent of the seller and not acting on behalf of the seller in connection with the transaction.
23.
TRANSFER OF DEPOSIT ACCOUNTS
Each person holding a Deposit Account at the Bank at the time of Conversion shall retain an identical Deposit Account at the Bank following Conversion in the same amount and subject to the same terms and conditions (except as to voting and liquidation rights) applicable to such Deposit Account in the Bank immediately before the completion of the Conversion.
24.
REGISTRATION AND MARKETING
For the time period required by applicable laws and regulations, the Holding Company will register the securities issued in connection with the Conversion pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and will not deregister such securities for a period of at least three (3) years thereafter, except that the requirement to maintain the registration of such securities for three (3) years may be fulfilled by any successor to the Holding Company.  In addition, the Holding Company will use its best efforts to encourage and assist a market-maker to establish and maintain a market for the Conversion Stock and to list those securities on a national or regional securities exchange unless otherwise permitted by the Federal Reserve.

C. The Holding Company and the Bank are authorized to adopt stock option plans, restricted stock award plans and other Non-Tax-Qualified Employee Stock Benefit Plans, provided that such plans conform to any applicable regulations.

First Seacoast Bancorp Announces Adoption of Plan of Conversion and Reorganization
to Undertake Second Step Conversion

Dover, New Hampshire; August 12, 2022 – First Seacoast Bancorp (Nasdaq: “FSEA”), the holding company for First Seacoast Bank, announced today that the Board of Directors of its parent mutual holding company, First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC, has adopted a Plan of Conversion and Reorganization pursuant to which First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC will undertake a “second step” conversion from the mutual holding company structure to the stock holding company structure.

First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC currently owns approximately 55.7% of the outstanding shares of common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp which it acquired in connection with the reorganization of First Seacoast Bank into the mutual holding company structure and the related initial public offering by First Seacoast Bancorp in July 2019.

As a result of the proposed transaction, a new stock holding company for First Seacoast Bank, to be named First Seacoast Bancorp, Inc. and which will succeed to First Seacoast Bancorp, will offer for sale shares of its common stock, representing First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC’s ownership interest in First Seacoast Bancorp, to depositors of First Seacoast Bank and others in a subscription offering and, if necessary, a community offering and/or a syndicated community offering.  Eligible account holders of First Seacoast Bank as of the close of business on June 30, 2021 have first priority non-transferable subscription rights to subscribe for shares of common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp, Inc.  The total number of shares of common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp, Inc. to be issued in the proposed stock offering will be based on the aggregate pro forma market value of the common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp, Inc., as determined by an independent appraisal.  In addition, each share of common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp owned by persons other than First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC (the “minority stockholders”) will be converted into and become the right to receive a number of shares of common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp, Inc. pursuant to an exchange ratio established at the completion of the proposed transaction.  The exchange ratio is designed to preserve in First Seacoast Bancorp, Inc. the same aggregate percentage ownership interest that the minority stockholders will have in First Seacoast Bancorp immediately before the completion of the proposed transaction, exclusive of the purchase of any additional shares of common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp, Inc. by minority stockholders in the stock offering and the effect of cash received in lieu of issuance of fractional shares of common stock of First Seacoast Bancorp, Inc., and adjusted to reflect certain assets held by First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC.




The proposed transaction is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2023, subject to regulatory approval, approval by the members of First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC (i.e., depositors and certain borrowers of First Seacoast Bank), and approval by the stockholders of First Seacoast Bancorp, including by a separate vote of approval by First Seacoast Bancorp’s minority stockholders.  Detailed information regarding the proposed transaction, including the stock offering, will be sent to stockholders of First Seacoast Bancorp and members of First Seacoast Bancorp, MHC following regulatory approval.
