On April 24, 2020, Investar Holding Corporation (“Investar”) furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to its Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original Report”) a presentation (the “Earnings Presentation”) to accompany the release of its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The Earnings Presentation included on page 10 a “Loan Credit Portfolio Summary” table, presenting Investar’s loan portfolio by category and credit quality indicator as of March 31, 2020. Subsequent to the filing of the Original Report, Investar discovered that the Loan Credit Portfolio Summary included certain inadvertent numerical errors. Investar is filing this Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A (this “Amendment”) solely to amend Item 9.01 of the Original Report to correct and replace the Loan Credit Portfolio Summary Table. The errors included an understatement of the volume of loans in Investar’s credit portfolio with a credit indicator of “Pass” by approximately $21.9 million, an overstatement of the volume of loans with a credit indicator of “Special Mention” by approximately $40.0 million and an understatement of the volume of loans with a credit indicator of “Substandard” by approximately $12.1 million.
This Amendment on Form-8-K/A is being filed solely to correct the numerical errors in the above-referenced Loan Credit Portfolio Summary Table. All other information in the Original Report and the Earnings Presentation remains unchanged, and nothing in this Amendment constitutes a determination by Investar as to the materiality of the corrected information provided herein. This Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Original Report.
