Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

Effective June 1, 2014, CenterState Banks, Inc. (the "Company") completed its previously announced merger (the "Merger") with First Southern Bancorp, Inc. ("FSB"), pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of January 29, 2014 (the "Merger Agreement") between the Company and FSB. At closing, FSB merged with and into the Company, with the Company as the surviving corporation in the Merger. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, holders of FSB common stock are entitled to receive for each share of FSB common stock held immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger, 0.30 shares of Company common stock par value $0.01 per share (the "Company Common Stock") and $3.00 in cash. For each fractional share that would otherwise be issued, the Company will pay cash in an amount equal to such fraction multiplied by $10.58. Each outstanding share of the Company's Common Stock remained outstanding and was unaffected by the Merger. As a result of the Merger, the Company will deliver approximately $95.4 million in cash and approximately 9.5 million shares of Company Common Stock to the holders of FSB common stock. The cash portion of the Merger consideration was funded through consolidated cash on hand from the combined entity.
