SUPPLEMENT DATED SEPTEMBER 12, 2018
TO THE JOINT PROXY STATEMENT/PROSPECTUS DATED AUGUST 2, 2018
SPECIAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS
TO BE HELD ON SEPTEMBER 14, 2018
The following information is related to the Allegiance Bancshares, Inc. (Allegiance) Special Meeting of Shareholders and amends and supplements the related Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 3, 2018 (the Proxy Statement).
In our Proxy Statement, we stated that brokers, banks or other nominees who hold shares of Allegiance common stock in street name only have discretionary authority to vote shares without instruction from the beneficial owner for matters considered routine, and that the Allegiance Charter Amendment Proposal (which is the proposal to approve an amendment to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Formation of Allegiance to increase the amount of authorized capital stock of Allegiance from 41,000,000 shares to 81,000,000 shares) was not a routine proposal.
We have been informed that New York Stock Exchange member organizations may vote proxies on the Allegiance Charter Amendment Proposal discretionarily. Therefore, if your shares of Allegiance common stock are held in street name, your broker, bank or other nominee, in its discretion, will be permitted to vote for you without instruction with respect to the Allegiance Charter Amendment Proposal.
Except as specifically supplemented by the information contained herein, all information set forth in the Proxy Statement remains unchanged.
From and after the date of this supplement, all references to the Proxy Statement are to the Proxy Statement as supplemented hereby.
