DEREGISTRATION OF SECURITIES

(the “Registrant”) is filing these Post-Effective Amendments to each of the following Registration Statements on Form S-8 (collectively, the “Registration Statements”) to terminate all offerings under such Registration Statements and deregister any and all securities that remain unsold pursuant to the Registration Statements:

 

  1.

Registration Statement No. 333-187714, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 4, 2013, registering the offer and sale of an aggregate of 631,770 shares the Registrant’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Registrants Common Stock”), issuable pursuant to the following plans:

  3.

Registration Statement No. 333-227564 filed with the SEC on September 27, 2018, registering the offer and sale of 250,000 shares of the Registrant’s Common Stock, issuable pursuant to the Howard Bancorp, Inc. 2017 Employee Stock Purchase Plan

Pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger between F.N.B. Corporation (“F.N.B.”) and the Registrant, dated as of July 12, 2021 (the “Merger Agreement”), the Registrant merged with and into F.N.B., effective as of January 22, 2022, with F.N.B. being the surviving corporation (the “Merger”). As a result of completion of the Merger, each outstanding share of the Registrant’s Common Stock was converted into the right to receive 1.8 common shares of F.N.B., par value $0.01 per share (except certain shares of the Registrant’s Common Stock held by F.N.B., the Registrant and their respective subsidiaries, which were cancelled without receipt of the merger consideration), with cash paid in lieu of any fractional shares of F.N.B. common stock.

Due to completion of the Merger, the Registrant has terminated any offering of the Registrant’s securities pursuant to any registration statement. In accordance with an undertaking made by the Registrant in each of the Registration Statements to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any of the securities that had been registered for issuance that remain unsold at the termination of the offering, the Registrant hereby removes from registration all of such securities of the Registrant registered but unsold under the Registration Statements, if any.
