Item 2.01
Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
 
On November 8, 2019, Nicolet Bankshares, Inc. (“Nicolet”) completed its merger (the “Merger”) with Choice Bancorp, Inc. (“Choice”), pursuant to the terms of Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated June 26, 2019, by and between Nicolet and Choice (the “Merger Agreement”). Choice merged with and into Nicolet, with Nicolet surviving the Merger. Immediately following the Merger, Choice’s wholly owned bank subsidiary, Choice Bank, merged with and into Nicolet’s wholly owned bank subsidiary, Nicolet National Bank (the “Bank”) pursuant to the terms of the Plan of Merger (the “Bank Plan of Merger”) by and between the Bank and Choice Bank (the “Bank Merger”).
 
As a result of the Merger, each shareholder of Choice received a 0.497 share of Nicolet common stock for each share of Choice common stock (the “Exchange Ratio”). The Merger Agreement provided for a cap and collar to potentially re-set the exchange ratio. Because the Nicolet Common Stock Price, as defined in the Merger Agreement, of $67.39 exceeded the $67.00 Cap, the Exchange Ratio was adjusted from 0.5 share to 0.497 share of Nicolet common stock and $67.39 was the value of cash in lieu of any fractional shares. Shares of Choice common stock held in treasury by Choice or held directly or indirectly by Nicolet were canceled. All outstanding Choice stock options were canceled in exchange for a cash payment of approximately $1.7 million. Nicolet issued approximately 1.2 million shares of its common stock to former Choice shareholders.
 
At the merger date, the combined company had totals assets of approximately $3.6 billion, deposits of $2.9 billion, and loans of $2.6 billion. Management has not yet fully completed its initial accounting for this business combination.
 
The foregoing summary of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Merger Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 9.01
