Fairness Opinion of Sandler O’Neill & Partners, L.P., dated November 11, 2009

 

 

The tender offers described in this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Report”) and the exhibit attached hereto have not yet commenced.

The Company will file a Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) upon the commencement of the Exchange Offers. Eligible holders of Preferred Stock should read the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO and other related materials when those materials become available, because they will contain important information about the Exchange Offers.

 

The written materials described above and other documents filed by the Company with the SEC are available free of charge from the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. In addition, free copies of these documents may also be obtained by directing a written request to: Hampton Roads Bankshares, Inc., John A.B.
