Item 8.01 Other Events.

On January 7, 2014, Old National Bancorp ("ONB") and United Bancorp, Inc. ("United") entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement"). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, United will merge with and into ONB whereupon the separate corporate existence of United will cease and ONB will survive (the "Merger"). In connection with the Merger, United Bank & Trust, a Michigan chartered commercial bank and wholly owned subsidiary of United, will be merged with and into Old National Bank, a national banking association and wholly owned subsidiary of ONB, with Old National Bank as the surviving bank (the "Bank Merger"). The Merger Agreement is described in more detail in ONB's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 8, 2014.

ONB has received regulatory approval of the Merger from the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. The Merger is expected to be effective on July 31, 2014, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The Bank Merger is also expected to be effective July 31, 2014, subject to receipt of the approval of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (the "OCC") of the Bank Merger.
