First Capital, Inc. (the "Company" or "First Capital") was incorporated under Indiana law on September 11, 1998. On December 31, 1998, the Company became the holding company for First Federal Bank, A Federal Savings Bank (the "Bank") upon the Bank's reorganization as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company resulting from the conversion of First Capital, Inc., M.H.C. (the "MHC"), from a federal mutual holding company to a stock holding company. On January 12, 2000, the Company completed a merger of equals with HCB Bancorp, the former holding company for Harrison County Bank, and the Bank changed its name to First Harrison Bank. On March 20, 2003, the Company acquired Hometown Bancshares, Inc. ("Hometown"), a bank holding company located in New Albany, Indiana. On December 4, 2015, the Company acquired Peoples Bancorp, Inc. of Bullitt County and its wholly-owned bank subsidiary, Peoples Bank of Bullitt County ("Peoples"), headquartered in Shepherdsville, Kentucky.
On September 20, 2017, the Bank filed applications with the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions ("IDFI") and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") to convert from a federal savings association into an Indiana chartered commercial bank (the "Conversion"). The Conversion has been completed and, as of June 30, 2018, the IDFI is the Bank's primary regulator and the FDIC is the Bank's primary federal regulator. The Conversion did not affect the Bank's clients in any way and did not affect FDIC deposit insurance on eligible accounts as the Bank's deposits are federally insured by the FDIC under the Deposit Insurance Fund. The Bank is a member of the Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") System.
Additionally, in connection with the Conversion, the Company filed an application with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis to change from a savings and loan holding company to a financial holding company. This change occurred simultaneously with the Conversion discussed above.
