Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
 
On August 21, 2020, Nicolet Bankshares, Inc. (“Nicolet”), completed its merger (the “Merger”) with Advantage Community Bancshares, Inc. (“Advantage”) pursuant to the terms of the definitive merger agreement, dated March 2, 2020, whereby Advantage was merged with and into Nicolet, and Advantage Community Bank, the wholly owned bank subsidiary of Advantage, was merged with and into Nicolet National Bank. Advantage's four branches in Dorchester, Edgar, Mosinee, and Wausau opened as Nicolet branches on August 24, 2020. Due to the small size of the transaction, terms of the all-cash deal were not disclosed.

At the merger date, Advantage had total assets of approximately $158 million (representing approximately 3% of Nicolet's pre-merger asset size), loans of $88 million, and deposits of $141 million. Management has not yet fully completed its initial accounting for this business combination.
