Under the terms of the proposal, public shareholders of Newport Bancorp will have the right to elect to receive either $17.55 in cash or 1.5129 shares of SIFI for each share of Newport Bancorp they own, subject to the proration procedures so that 50 percent of the outstanding Newport Bancorp common shares is converted into SIFI common stock and the balance is converted into cash consideration.
