Tri-County Financial Corporation (OTCBB: TCFC) (the “Company”), the holding company for Community Bank of Tri-County (the “Bank”), reported today that it has commenced an underwritten public offering of 1,400,000 shares of its common stock. The Company intends to grant the underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 15 percent of the amount sold to cover over-allotments, if any.

The Company has applied to have its common stock listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “TCFC”, such listing to occur concurrently with the close of the public offering.

The Company expects to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, which may include, among other uses, contributing capital to the Bank and supporting organic growth and opportunistic acquisitions of whole banking institutions or branch locations, should appropriate acquisition opportunities arise. The Company does not have any specific plans for acquisitions at this time.

Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, a Stifel Company, is the sole book-running manager in this offering and Sandler O’Neill & Partners is acting as co-manager.

The Company initially filed a registration statement (including a preliminary prospectus) with the SEC on September 12, 2013 for the offering to which this communication relates. Prospective investors should read the preliminary prospectus in that registration statement and other documents that the Company has filed with the SEC for more complete information about the Company and the offering. Investors may obtain these documents without charge on the SEC website at www.sec.gov. Alternatively, copies of the preliminary prospectus may be obtained from Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc., Attention: Equity Capital Markets, 787 Seventh Avenue, 4th Floor, New York, New York 10019, or by calling (800) 966-1559.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
