Excessive Or Luxury Expenditures Policy
THIS POLICY is hereby adopted and approved by the Board of Directors of DUKE
FINANCIAL GROUP, INC. in order to fulfill the requirement under Section 111 of the
Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, as amended by the American Recovery
Investment Act of 2009 or otherwise from time to time (“EESA”), and rules, regulations,
guidance or other requirements issued thereunder (collectively, the “EESA Restrictions”) that an “excessive or luxury expenditures policy” be adopted, which Policy shall apply to Duke
Financial Group, Inc. and to each affiliate of the Financial Institution treated as being the same
employer under the EESA Restrictions (collectively, “Duke”).
Duke prohibits any excessive or luxury expenditures relating to entertainment or events, office
and facility renovations, aviation or other transportation services and other items, activities or
events that are not reasonable expenditures for staff development, reasonable performance
incentives or other similar measures conducted in the normal course of business operations.
Entertainment or Events: This category of expenditure relates to activities that any officer or
employee would use corporate funds for business development purposes relating to current or
prospective customers or to further marketing efforts on behalf of Duke.
It is the expectation of Duke that all expenses incurred in this category will be for company
purposes and used to generate business for Duke. Occasional events such as taking customers or prospects to sporting events, playing golf, dinners or other meals or similar events or parties that might build or enhance the relationship with the customer/prospect is a normal and necessary part of marketing efforts and are not considered to be in violation of this Policy. The expenses related to these events should be documented and detailed by the officer or employee through the normal reimbursement process. Events that will take place outside of the markets in which Duke does business will require prior approval of the Board of Directors. Also, the costs for all of these activities should be kept in mind and monitored and should avoid the appearance to the shareholders of being extraordinary or excessive.
Office and Facility Renovations: Renovations should relate to projects approved by the Board of
Directors and included in the capital expenditure plan for Duke. Approved renovations should
avoid the appearance of being extraordinary or excessive from the perspective of the
shareholders or general public. Exceptions to approved projects will be permitted if management must deal with an emergency situation, such as the need to make a facility operational for customer use.
Aviation and Transportation Services: Transportation for officers and employees of Duke should be conducted in the most cost appropriate way for Duke. Modes of transportation to be used may consist of car, commercial air or rail service. For certain officers/employees, this may
include the use of a company car. The selection of transportation services should consider the
cost, efficiency and timeliness of the travel as well as the confidentiality of customer
information. Private air services will not be allowed without approval of the Board of Directors.
Other Activities: Activities such as conferences and board or management retreats are a normal and expected practice for Duke, and at times it may be appropriate that spouses attend along with the officers/employees. Duke recognizes that these activities provide significant educational, business planning and team building benefits to Duke and therefore should not be discouraged.
Likewise, employee recognition and holiday parties, including reasonable service awards and
nominal door prizes, are part of the normal operations of Duke and will not violate the Policy.
However, the costs for all of these activities should be kept in mind and monitored and should
avoid the appearance to the shareholders of being extraordinary or excessive.
Compliance with this Policy will be monitored by the SVP/CFOs of Duke Financial Group, Inc.
and each of its subsidiary banks, by report to the Board of Directors of Duke Financial Group,
Inc. Any noncompliance will be promptly reported to the Board of Directors. Any officer or
employee who engages in extravagant spending will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action up to and including termination.
