The WVS Financial Corp. Employee Stock Ownership Plan and Trust (the “ESOP” or the “Reporting Person”) is an employee benefit plan subject to the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”), with individual accounts for the benefit of participating employees and their beneficiaries. The ESOP’s assets are held in trust by the trustee, currently John A. Howard, Jr. (the “Plan Trustee”). The number of shares listed as beneficially owned represents the entire number of shares of Common Stock held in the ESOP by the Plan Trustee as of December 31, 2021. As of December 31, 2021, of the 290,871 shares of Common Stock held in the ESOP, there were 138,503 shares of Common Stock allocated to individual accounts established for participating employees and their beneficiaries, while 152,365 shares of Common Stock held in the ESOP were unallocated. In general, participating employees and their beneficiaries have the power and authority to direct the voting of shares of Common Stock allocated to their individual accounts through the Plan Trustee (who has shared voting and dispositive power over the allocated shares), subject to the fiduciary duties of the Plan Trustee and applicable law. Any unallocated shares of Common Stock are generally voted by the Plan Trustee in his discretion, subject to the fiduciary duties of the Plan Trustee and applicable law.

 

Item 5.

Dividends on Common Stock allocated to the accounts of participating employees and their beneficiaries, to the extent paid in the form of additional securities, are added to their respective individual accounts. Dividends on Common Stock allocated to the accounts of participating employees and their beneficiaries, to the extent paid in cash, are, at the direction of the Plan Administrator, either (i) credited to the respective individual accounts, or (ii) used to pay principal and interest on outstanding indebtedness incurred by the Reporting Person to acquire Common Stock.
