Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities
On April 16, 2021, First Northwest Bancorp (the “Company”) issued 29,719 shares of the Company’s common stock under the terms of an Amended and Restated Joint Venture Agreement dated April 15, 2021 (the “Joint Venture Agreement”), with POM Peace of Mind, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“POM”), Quin Ventures, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Quin”), and the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Port Angeles (the “Bank”). The shares were issued to POM and had a value of approximately $500,000. The benefits received by the Company pursuant to the Joint Venture Agreement constituted the consideration for the issuance of the shares. The shares were issued in reliance on the exemption from registration provided in Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
Under the Joint Venture Agreement, the Company and POM have established Quin to develop a digital financial wellness platform that will offer personal financial services to the general public. The Company has also committed to extend $15,000,000 to Quin under a capital financing agreement and related promissory note.
The parties also entered into a Marketing and Banking Services Agreement dated April 15, 2021, under which Quin will promote the services offered through the digital financial wellness platform and the Bank will provide banking services to the customers who utilize the platform. The Marketing and Banking Services Agreement sets forth the terms that govern the parties’ commercial and economic commitments and responsibilities, including the fees to be paid by the Bank to fund the costs of acquiring customers and the distribution of interchange fees.
The board of directors of Quin initially will have five positions, with two directors nominated by the Company, two directors nominated by POM, and one independent director position that will be filled in due course. The four directors elected on April 15, 2021, are Matthew Deines, the Company’s President and CEO, Christopher Riffle, the Company’s COO and General Counsel, and the CEO and COO of Quin.
