Article I – Purposes
 
Section 1.01       Purpose. This corporation is organized for any and all lawful purposes for which corporations may be organized under the Utah Revised Business Corporation Act, as amended, as set forth in the corporation’s Articles of Incorporation, including, without limitation, to engage in the commercial banking business under the provisions of Chapter 3 of Title 7 of the Utah Code Annotated.
 
Article II – Offices

Section 2.01       Offices. The principal office of the corporation may be located at any place, either in or outside the State of Utah, as designated in the corporation’s most current Annual Report filed with the Utah Division of Corporations and Commercial Code. The corporation may have such other offices, either in or outside the State of Utah, as the board of directors may designate or as the business of the corporation may require from time to time. The corporation shall maintain at its principal office a copy of certain records, as specified in Section 16-10a-1601 of the Utah Revised Business Corporation Act.
 
Section 2.02       Registered Office. The registered office of the corporation, required by Section 16-10a-501 of the Utah Revised Business Corporation Act, shall be located in the State of Utah and may be, but need not be, identical with the corporation’s principal office (if located in the State of Utah). The address of the registered office may be changed from time to time.
 
Article III – Shareholders
 
Section 3.01       Annual Meeting. The corporation shall hold an annual meeting of shareholders at such time, date and place as the board of directors shall determine, for the purpose of electing directors and for the transaction of such other business as may come before the meeting. No business may be transacted at an annual meeting of shareholders, other than business that is either (x) specified in the notice of meeting (or any supplement thereto) given by or at the direction of the board of directors (or any duly authorized committee thereof); (y) otherwise properly brought before the annual meeting by or at the direction of the board of directors (or any duly authorized committee thereof); or (z) otherwise properly brought before the annual meeting by any shareholder of the corporation (i) who is a shareholder of record on the date notice is given as provided for in Section 3.05 and has remained a shareholder of record through the record date for the determination of shareholders entitled to vote at such annual meeting and (ii) who complies with the notice procedures set forth in Section 3.13(b) and this Section 3.01. In addition to any other applicable requirements, for business to be properly brought before an annual meeting by a shareholder, such shareholder must have given timely notice thereof in proper written form pursuant to Section 3.15 hereof, delivered or mailed by first class mail, postage prepaid, to the corporation’s secretary. To be timely, a shareholder’s notice to the corporation’s secretary must be delivered to or mailed and received at the principal executive offices of the corporation not less than one hundred fifty (150) days nor more than one hundred eighty (180) days prior to the first anniversary date of the preceding year’s annual meeting of shareholders; provided, however, that in the event that the date of the annual meeting is changed by more than thirty (30) days from such anniversary date, notice by the shareholder will be considered timely if it is delivered not earlier than the 180th day prior to such annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 150th day prior to such annual meeting or the tenth day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made. No business shall be conducted at the annual meeting of shareholders except business brought before the annual meeting in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 3.15 hereof, except that once business has been properly brought before the annual meeting in accordance with such procedures, nothing in this Section 3.01 or Section 3.15 shall be deemed to preclude discussion by any shareholder of any such business.

-1-

Section 3.02       Special Meeting. A special meeting of shareholders may be called at any time by (a) the chairman of the board of directors, the president or the secretary at the request in writing, or by resolution, of a majority of the board of directors or (b) by the secretary at the request in writing by any one or more shareholders that hold, in the aggregate, at least ten percent (10%) of the outstanding registered shares of the corporation entitled to vote at such meeting, which request shall state the purpose of such meeting. No other person or persons are permitted to call a special meeting. The business transacted at any special meeting shall be limited to the purpose of such meeting, which shall be stated in the notice of such meeting. If the chairman of the special meeting determines that business was not properly brought before the special meeting in accordance with the procedures contained in these Bylaws and the corporation’s Articles of Incorporation, the chairman shall declare to the meeting that the business was not properly brought before the meeting and such business shall not be transacted.
 
Section 3.03        Place of Meetings. The board of directors may designate any place, either in or outside the State of Utah, as the place at which any annual or special meeting is to be held. If no designation is made, the meeting shall be held at the corporation’s principal office.
 
Section 3.04        Action Without a Meeting.

(a)        Action by Written Consent. Any action required to be taken or which may be taken at any annual or special meeting of shareholders of the Corporation may be taken without a meeting if a consent in writing, setting forth the action so taken, is signed by all of the shareholders entitled to vote with respect to the subject matter thereof.
 
(b)        Withdrawal of Consent. Any shareholder giving a written consent, or the shareholder’s proxyholder, or a transferee of the shares or a personal representative of the shareholder or their respective proxyholder, may revoke the consent by a signed writing describing the action and stating that the shareholder’s prior consent is revoked, if the writing is received by the corporation prior to the effectiveness of the action.
 
(c)       Effective Date of Action. An action taken pursuant to this Section 3.04 is not effective unless all written consents on which the corporation relies for the taking of an action pursuant to subsection (a) are received by the corporation within a sixty (60) day period and not revoked pursuant to subsection (c). Action taken pursuant to this Section 3.04 is effective as of the date the last written consent necessary to effect the action is received by the corporation, unless all of the written consents necessary to effect the action specify a later date as the effective date of the action, in which case the later date shall be the effective date of the action. If the corporation has received written consents as contemplated by subsection (a) signed by all shareholders entitled to vote with respect to the action, the effective date of the action may be any date that is specified in all the written consents as the effective date of the action.
 
-2-

(d)         Record Date. If not otherwise determined under Section 3.06 of these Bylaws, the record date for determining shareholders entitled to take action without a meeting or entitled to be given notice under subsection (b) of action so taken is the date the first shareholder delivers to the corporation a writing upon which the action is taken pursuant to subsection (a).
 
Section 3.05        Notice of Meeting.
 
(a)         Notice Required. The corporation shall give notice to shareholders of the date, time and place of each annual and special shareholders’ meeting no fewer than ten (10) nor more than sixty (60) days before the meeting date.

(b)         Exception to Notice Requirement. Notwithstanding any requirement in these Bylaws or elsewhere that notice be given, the corporation shall not be required to give notice to any shareholder to whom:
 
(i)          a notice of two (2) consecutive annual meetings, and all notices of meetings during the period between the two (2) consecutive annual meetings, have been mailed, addressed to the shareholder at the shareholder’s address as shown on the corporation’s records, and have been returned undeliverable; or
 
(ii)        at least two (2) payments, if sent by first class mail, of dividends or interest on securities during a twelve (12) month period, have been mailed, addressed to the shareholder at the shareholder’s address as shown on the records of the corporation, and have been returned undeliverable.
 
(c)          Contents of Notice.
 
(i)          The notice of every shareholders’ meeting must state the place, day and time of the meeting.

-3-

(iii)        Notice of a special meeting must include a description of the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called.
 
(d)        Waiver of Notice. A shareholder may waive any notice required by these Bylaws, before or after the date and time stated in the notice as the date or time when any action will occur or has occurred. The waiver must be in writing, be signed by the shareholder entitled to the notice, and be delivered to the corporation for inclusion in the minutes or filing with the corporate records.
 
(e)         Waiver by Attendance. A shareholder’s attendance at a meeting:
 
(i)         waives objection to lack of notice or defective notice of the meeting, unless the shareholder at the beginning of the meeting objects to holding the meeting or transacting business at the meeting because of lack of notice or defective notice; and
 
(ii)        in the case of a special meeting, waives objection to consideration of a particular matter at the meeting that is not within the purposes described in the meeting notice, unless the shareholder objects to considering the matter when it is presented.
 
Section 3.06        Record Date for Meetings and Other Actions. In order that the corporation may determine the shareholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of shareholders or any adjournment thereof or to express consent to or dissent from any proposal without a meeting, or entitled to receive payments of any dividend or allotment of any rights, or entitled to exercise any rights in respect of any change, conversion or exchange of stock or for the purpose of any other lawful action, the board of directors may fix, in advance, a record date, which shall not be more than sixty (60) nor less than fifteen (15) days before the date of such meeting, nor more than sixty (60) days prior to any other action. If no record date is fixed: (1) the record date for determining shareholders entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of shareholders shall be at the close of business on the day preceding the day on which notice is first given; and (2) the record date for determining shareholders for any other purpose shall be at the close of business on the day on which the board of directors adopts the resolution relating thereto. A determination of shareholders of record entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of shareholders shall apply to any adjournment of the meeting; provided, however, that the board of directors may fix a new record date for the adjourned meeting.
 
Section 3.07       Record Date of Dividends and Other Distributions. The board of directors may fix a future date as the record date for determining shareholders entitled to dividends and other distributions, other than one involving a purchase, redemption, or other acquisition of the corporation’s shares.

Section 3.08      Meetings by Telecommunication. Shareholders may participate in a meeting by, or the meeting may be conducted through the use of, conference telephone or similar means of communication by which all persons participating in the meeting can hear one another during the meeting.

(a)         Vote Required. Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast by the shares entitled to vote in the election, at a meeting of shareholders at which a quorum is present. Cumulative voting, as defined in Utah Code Annotated § 16-10a-728, shall not be used to elect directors.
 
(b)        Notice of Nomination.

Section 3.15        Proper Written Form of Shareholder’s Notice.
 
  (a)       Proper Written Form. To be in proper written form pursuant to Section 3.01 or Section 3.13(b) hereof, a shareholder’s notice to the corporation’s secretary shall set forth in writing as to each matter the shareholder proposes to bring before the annual meeting: (i) as to each person whom the shareholder proposes to nominate for election or re-election as a director, the name, age, and business address of each such person, the principal occupation or employment of such person, the number of shares of stock of the corporation which are beneficially owned by such person, and all other information relating to such person that is required to be disclosed in solicitations of proxies for election of directors in an election contest, or is otherwise required pursuant to Regulation 14A under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), (including such person’s written consent to being named in the proxy statement as a nominee and to serving as a director if elected); (ii) as to any other business that the shareholder proposes to bring before the meeting, a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the annual meeting, the text of the proposal or business (including the text of any resolutions proposed for consideration) and the reasons for conducting such business at the annual meeting, and in the event that such business includes a proposal to amend the Articles of Incorporation or the Bylaws of the corporation, the language of the proposed amendment; (iii) the name and address, as they appear on the corporation’s books, of the shareholder proposing such business or nomination and the name and address of the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the nomination or proposal is being made; (iv) the class or series and number of shares of the corporation which are beneficially owned or owned of record by the shareholder proposing such business or nomination and name of the beneficial owner if different from the shareholder; (v) a description of any agreement, arrangement or understanding (including any derivative or short positions, profit interests, options, warrants, stock appreciation or similar rights, hedging transactions, and borrowed or loaned shares) that has been entered into as of the date of the shareholder’s notice by, or on behalf of, such shareholder and/or such beneficial owners, the effect or intent of which is to mitigate loss to, manage risk or benefit of share price changes for, or increase or decrease the voting power of, such shareholder and/or such beneficial owner, with respect to shares of stock of the corporation; (vi) any material interest of the shareholder and/or such beneficial owners in any such business; (vii) a representation that the shareholder is a holder of record of stock of the corporation entitled to vote at such annual meeting and intends to appear in person or by proxy at such meeting to propose such business; and (viii) if the shareholder intends to solicit proxies in support of such shareholder’s proposal, a representation to that effect. The foregoing notice requirements shall be deemed satisfied by a shareholder if the shareholder has notified the corporation of his or her intention to make a nomination or present a proposal at an annual meeting and such shareholder’s nominee or proposal has been included in a proxy statement that has been prepared by management of the corporation to solicit proxies for such annual meeting; provided, however, that if such shareholder does not appear or send a qualified representative to present such nominee or proposal at such annual meeting, the Corporation need not present such nominee or proposal for a vote at such meeting notwithstanding that proxies in respect of such vote may have been received by the corporation. For purposes of this Section 3.15, to be considered a qualified representative of the shareholder, a person must be authorized by a writing executed by such shareholder or an electronic transmission delivered by such shareholder to act for such shareholder as proxy at the meeting of shareholders and such person must produce such writing or electronic transmission, or a reliable reproduction of such writing or electronic transmission, at the meeting of shareholders. The corporation may require any proposed nominee to furnish such other information as it may reasonably require to determine the eligibility of such proposed nominee to serve as a director of the corporation.
 

(b)        Defective Nomination. The chairman of the meeting may, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that the business or nomination was not properly brought before the annual meeting in accordance with the foregoing procedures, and if he should so determine, he shall so declare to the meeting and the defective nomination or business shall be disregarded.

Article IV –Board of Directors
 
Section 4.01        General Powers. The business and affairs of the corporation shall be managed under the direction of its board of directors.
 
Section 4.02        Number. The number of directors of the corporation shall be not less than five (5) nor more than nine (9), with the exact number of directors within such parameters to be set by resolution of the board of directors from time to time; provided that no decrease in the number of directors shall have the effect of shortening the term of any incumbent director.
 
Section 4.03        Chair. One (1) director may be designated by a majority of the full board of directors as chair of the board. The chair of the board shall preside at all meetings of the board of directors.
 
Section 4.04        Election. The directors shall be elected at each annual meeting of the shareholders. If the directors are not elected at an annual meeting, or if an annual meeting is not held, then the directors may be elected at any special meeting of the shareholders held for that purpose.
 
Section 4.05       Term and Classification of Directors. The Board shall be divided into three classes, the members of each class to serve for three years. The number of directors serving in each class shall be equal as nearly as possible. At the annual meeting of shareholders at which an amendment to the articles of incorporation is approved to divide the board into classes, the directors of one class (Class III) shall be elected for a three year term, the directors of the second class (Class II) shall be elected for a two year term, and the directors of the third class (Class I) shall be elected for a one year term, each term ending at the annual meeting of shareholders held at or near the end of such term. At each annual meeting thereafter, directors shall be elected to fill the directorships of the class of directors whose terms have expired. Those directors shall hold office for a three year term following their election or until such time as their successors shall have been elected and qualified.
 
Section 4.06        Qualifications. Directors need not be residents of the State of Utah or shareholders of the corporation. However, a majority of the directors shall be directors who do not have “control” over the corporation as the term “control” is defined herein. For purposes of this Bylaw, a director shall be deemed to have “control” over the corporation if: (a) such director directly or indirectly or acting through one or more other persons owns, controls, or has power to vote 25 per centum or more of any class of voting securities of the corporation; (b) such director controls in any manner the election of a majority of the directors of the corporation; or (c) the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the Utah Commissioner of Financial Institutions determines, after notice and opportunity for hearing in the manner contemplated by 12 U.S.C. § 1841(a)(2)(C), that such director directly or indirectly exercises a controlling influence over the management or policies of the corporation.
 
-8-

Section 4.07       Resignation. Any director of the corporation may resign at any time by giving written notice to the corporation. A resignation is effective when the notice is received by the corporation unless the notice specifies a later effective date.
 
Section 4.08        Vacancies. Any vacancies in the board of directors for any reason, and any created directorships resulting from any increase in the number of directors, may be filled by the vote of not less than 66 2/3% of the members of the board of directors then in office, although less than a quorum, and any directors so chosen shall hold office, in the event that the board of directors is classified pursuant to this Article V, until the next election of the class for which such directors shall have been chosen and until their successors shall be elected and qualified, and in the event that the board of directors is not classified pursuant to this Article V, until the next annual meeting of shareholders and until such director’s successor is elected and has qualified.
 
Section 4.09        Election by Plurality.  Directors shall be elected by a plurality of the votes cast at a meeting of shareholders by the holders of shares entitled to vote in the election. Cumulative voting, as defined in Utah Code Annotated § 16-10a-728, shall not be used to elect directors.
 
Section 4.10        Removal. The notice of the meeting at which a director is to be removed must state that the purpose, or one of the purposes, of the meeting is to remove the director.
 
Section 4.11        Compensation. By resolution of the board of directors, the directors may be paid their expenses, if any, of attendance at each meeting of the board of directors, and may be paid a fixed sum for attendance at each meeting of the board of directors or stated salaries as directors. No such payment shall preclude any director from serving the corporation in any other capacity and receiving compensation therefor.
 
Section 4.12        Regular Meetings. By resolution, the board of directors may determine the time and place, either within or without the State of Utah, for the holding of regular meetings without other notice than such resolution; provided, that a quorum of the board of directors shall meet at least as frequently as required at any time by the provisions of Utah Code Annotated § 7-3-32, as amended from time to time.
 
Section 4.13        Special Meetings. Special meetings of the board of directors may be called by or at the request of the chairman of the board, the president/chief executive officer or any three (3) directors. The person or persons authorized to call special meetings of the board of directors may fix any place, either within or without the State of Utah, as the place for holding any special meeting of the board of directors called by them. Notice of any special meeting of the board of directors shall be given to each director in person, by telephone, by facsimile or electronic mail, or by next-day delivery courier service, at least 24 hours before the special meeting, directed to each director at that director’s address, telephone number, facsimile number of electronic mail address, as the case may be, as shown on the corporation’s records.
 
Section 4.14       Action Without a Meeting. Any action required or permitted to be taken at a meeting of the board of directors may be taken without a meeting if a consent in writing, setting forth the action so taken, is signed by all of the directors. Such consent has the same force and effect as a unanimous vote of the directors. Action taken under this provision is effective at the time the last director signs a writing describing the action taken, unless, prior to that time, any director has revoked a consent by a writing signed by the director and received by the secretary or any other person authorized by the Bylaws or the board of directors to receive the revocation, or unless the consent specifies a different effective time. This section shall not substitute for the requirement that a quorum of the board of directors of the corporation meet at least as frequently as required under the provisions of Utah Code Annotated § 7-3-32, as amended from time to time.

-15-

(b)        The indemnification and advancement or expenses provided by, or granted pursuant to, this Article X shall (i) not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those seeking indemnification or advancement of expenses may be entitled under these Bylaws or any agreement, vote of shareholders or disinterested directors or otherwise, both as to action in his official capacity and as to action in another capacity while holding such office; and (ii) continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors and administrators of such person.

(c)        The corporation may indemnify any person, including any employee or agent of the corporation, to whom the corporation is permitted by applicable law to provide indemnification or the advancement of expenses, whether pursuant to rights granted pursuant to, or provided by, the Utah Code Annotated Sections 16-10a-902 and -907 or other rights created by (i) a resolution of the shareholders, (ii) a resolution of directors, or (iii) an agreement providing for such indemnification, it being expressly intended that these Bylaws authorize the creation of other rights in any such manner. The right to be indemnified and to the reimbursement or advancement of expenses incurred in defending a proceeding in advance of its final disposition authorized by this Article X shall not be exclusive of any other right which any person may have or hereafter acquire under any statute, common law, provision of the corporation’s Articles of Incorporation, these Bylaws, agreement, vote of shareholders or disinterested directors or otherwise.

(d)        The right to indemnification conferred by Section 10.01(a) or Section 10.03(b) of this Article X shall, and any indemnification extended under Section 10.01(c) of this Article X may, be retroactive to events occurring prior to the adoption of this Article X and shall continue to exist after the rescission or restrictive modification hereof with respect to events occurring prior thereto, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

(e)          Any person entitled to be indemnified as a matter of right pursuant to this Article X may elect, to the extent permitted by law, to have the right to indemnification interpreted on the basis of the applicable law in effect at the time of the occurrence of the event or events giving rise to the action or proceeding, or on the basis of the applicable law in effect at the time indemnification is sought.

-16-

(b)         Any indemnification under Section 10.01(a) of this Article X (unless ordered by a court) shall be paid by the corporation unless a determination is made (i) by the board by a majority vote or a quorum consisting of directors who were not parties to such action, suit or proceeding, or (ii) if such a quorum is not obtainable, or even if obtainable a quorum of disinterested directors so directs, by independent legal counsel in a written opinion that indemnification of the director or officer is not proper in the circumstances because he had not met the applicable standards of conduct under Utah law.

(c)        The right to be indemnified pursuant to this Article X shall be a contract right and shall include the right to be paid by the corporation expenses incurred in defending any action, suit or proceeding (including investigations by any governmental or quasi-governmental agency and all costs, charges and expenses incurred in preparing for any threatened action, suit or proceeding) in advance of its final disposition; provided, however, that the payment of such expenses incurred by a director or officer in his capacity as a director or officer (and not in any other capacity in which service was or is rendered by such person while a director or officer, including without limitation, service to an employee benefit plan) in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or proceeding, shall be made only upon delivery to the corporation of an undertaking, by or on behalf of such director or officer, to repay all amounts so advanced if it should ultimately be determined by final judicial decision from which there is no further right to appeal that such director or officer is not entitled to be indemnified under this provision. No security shall be required for such undertaking and such undertaking shall be accepted without reference to the recipient’s financial ability to make repayment. The repayment of such charges and expenses incurred by other employees and agents of the corporation which are paid by the corporation in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or proceeding as permitted by this Article X may be required upon such terms and conditions, if any, as the board of directors deems appropriate. The board of directors may, in the manner set forth above, and subject to the approval of the person entitled to be indemnified, authorize the corporation’s counsel to represent such person, in any action, suit or proceeding, whether or not the corporation is a party to such action, suit or proceeding.

(d)        Any indemnification under Section 10.01(a) or (b) or Section 10.03(a) of this Article X or advancement of costs, charges and expenses under Section 10.03(c) of this Article X shall be made promptly, and in any event within sixty (60) days, upon the written request of the director or officer, directed to the corporation’s secretary. The right to indemnification or advances as granted by Section 10.03(d) of this Article X shall be enforceable by the director or officer in any court of competent jurisdiction if the corporation denies such request, in whole or in part, or if no disposition thereof is made within sixty (60) days. Such person’s costs and expenses incurred in connection with successfully establishing his right to indemnification or advances, in whole or in part, in any such action shall also be indemnified by the corporation. It shall be a defense to any such action (other than an action brought to enforce a claim for the advance of costs, charges and expenses under Section 10.03(d) where the required undertaking, if any, has been received by the corporation) that the claimant has not met the standard of conduct under applicable law, but the burden of proving that such standard of conduct has not been met shall be on the corporation. Neither the failure of the corporation (including its board, its independent legal counsel and its shareholders) to have made a determination prior to the commencement of such action that indemnification of the claimant is proper in the circumstances because he has met the applicable standard of conduct under applicable law, nor the fact that there has been an actual determination by the corporation (including its board, its independent legal counsel and its shareholders) that the claimant has not met such applicable standard of conduct, shall be a defense to the action or create a presumption that the claimant has not met the applicable standard of conduct.
