FIRST SUPPLEMENTAL INDENTURE, dated as of June 11, 2020 (this “Supplemental Indenture”), between BankUnited, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and U.S. Bank National Association, a national banking association, as trustee (the “Trustee”).
WHEREAS, the Company and the Trustee executed and delivered the base indenture, dated as of June 11, 2020 (the “Base Indenture”, as supplemented by this Supplemental Indenture, the “Indenture”), to provide for the issuance of the Company’s subordinated debt securities (the “Securities”), to be issued in one or more series;
WHEREAS, pursuant to the terms of the Base Indenture, the Company desires to provide for the establishment of a new series of its notes under the Base Indenture to be known as its “5.125% Subordinated Notes due 2030” (the “Subordinated Notes”), the form and substance and the terms, provisions and conditions thereof to be set forth as provided in the Base Indenture and this Supplemental Indenture;
WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of the Company pursuant to the resolutions duly adopted by the Board of Directors on May 29, 2020 and the resolutions duly adopted by the Pricing Committee of the Board of Directors on June 4, 2020 have duly authorized the issuance of the Subordinated Notes and has authorized the proper officers of the Company to execute any and all appropriate documents necessary or appropriate to effect each such issuance;
WHEREAS, this Supplemental Indenture is being entered into pursuant to the provisions of Section 14.01 of the Base Indenture;
WHEREAS, the Company has requested and hereby requests that the Trustee execute and deliver this Supplemental Indenture; and
WHEREAS, all things necessary to make this Supplemental Indenture a valid and legally binding agreement of the Company, in accordance with its terms, and to make the Subordinated Notes, when executed by the Company and authenticated and delivered by the Trustee, the valid and legally binding obligations of the Company, have been performed, and the execution and delivery of this Supplemental Indenture has been duly authorized in all respects;
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the purchase and acceptance of the Subordinated Notes by the Holders thereof, and for the purpose of setting forth, as provided in the Base Indenture, the forms and terms of the Subordinated Notes, the Company covenants and agrees, with the Trustee, as follows:
Section 1.01. Rules of Construction. In addition to the rules of construction in the introductory paragraph of Article I of the Base Indenture, except as otherwise
expressly provided or unless the context otherwise requires, the following provisions shall also be applied wherever appropriate herein:
(a) each term defined in the Base Indenture has the same meaning when used in this Supplemental Indenture; provided, however, that where a term is defined both in this Supplemental Indenture and in the Base Indenture, the meaning given to such term in this Supplemental Indenture shall control for purposes of (i) this Supplemental Indenture and (ii) in respect of the Subordinated Notes, but not any other series of Securities, the Base Indenture;
(b) the singular includes the plural and vice versa;
(c) headings are for convenience of reference only and do not affect interpretation;
(d) to the extent any provision of any Subordinated Note conflicts with the express provisions of the Indenture, the provisions of the Indenture shall govern and be controlling; and
(e) a reference to a Section or Article is to a Section or Article of this Supplemental Indenture unless otherwise indicated.
Section 1.02. Definitions. Unless the context otherwise requires, the following terms have the meanings given to them in this Section 1.02:
(i) “1940 Act Event,” means the Company becoming required to register as an investment company pursuant to the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.
(ii) “Bankruptcy Law” means title 11, U.S. Code or any similar federal or state law for the relief of debtors.
(iii) “Bankruptcy Custodian” means any receiver, trustee, assignee, liquidator or other similar official under any Bankruptcy Law.
(iv) “Business Day” means any Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday that is not a day on which banking institutions in New York, New York or the place of payment with respect to the Subordinated Notes are authorized or required by law or executive order to close.
(v) “Capital Stock” of any Person means any and all shares, interests, rights to purchase, warrants, options, participations or other equivalents of, or interests in (however designated), equity of such Person, including preferred stock, but excluding any debt securities convertible into such equity.
(vi) “Senior Indebtedness” means the principal of, premium, if any, and interest (including interest accruing on or after the filing of any petition in bankruptcy or for reorganization relating to the Company) on and any other
payment due pursuant to any of the following, whether incurred on or prior to the date hereof or hereafter incurred:
(a) all obligations of the Company (other than obligations pursuant to any other Subordinated Notes issued under the Indenture) for money borrowed;
(b) all obligations of the Company evidenced by securities, notes, debentures, bonds or other similar instruments (other than any Subordinated Notes issued under the Indenture), including obligations incurred in connection with the acquisition of property, assets or businesses;
(c) all capital lease obligations of the Company;
(d) all obligations of the Company arising from off-balance sheet guarantees and direct credit substitutes, including obligations in respect of any letters of credit, banker’s acceptance, security purchase facilities and similar credit transactions;
(e) all obligations to general creditors of the Company;
(f) all obligations of the Company issued or assumed as the deferred purchase price of property or services, including all obligations under master lease transactions pursuant to which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries has agreed to be treated as owner of the subject property for U.S. federal income tax purposes;
(g) all obligations of the Company associated with derivative products including, but not limited to, securities contracts, foreign currency exchange contracts, swap agreements (including interest rate and foreign exchange rate swap agreements), cap agreements, floor agreements, collar agreements, interest rate agreements, foreign exchange rate agreements, options, commodity futures contracts, commodity option contracts and similar financial instruments; and
(h) all obligations of the type referred to in clauses (a) through (g) of this definition of another Person the payment of which, in either case, the Company has assumed or guaranteed or for which the Company is responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, jointly or severally, as obligor, guarantor or otherwise;
provided that “Senior Indebtedness” shall not include (i) any Capital Stock of the Company, (ii) any obligations to trade creditors created or assumed by the Company in the ordinary course of business, (iii) any obligation of the Company to any Subsidiary of the Company or to any Person with respect to which the Company is a Subsidiary, and (iv) any indebtedness that (x) expressly states that it is junior to or ranks
equally in right of payment with the Subordinated Notes, (y) is identified as junior to, or equal in right of payment with, the Subordinated Notes in any board resolution establishing such indebtedness (or otherwise approving the assumption or issuance of such Indebtedness by the Company) or in any supplemental indenture or (z) which is subordinated to indebtedness of the Company to substantially the same extent as, or to a greater extent than, the Subordinated Notes are subordinated.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Federal Reserve (or other competent regulatory agency or authority) promulgates any rule or issues any interpretation that defines general creditor(s), the main purpose of which is to establish criteria for determining whether the subordinated debt of a bank holding company is to be included in its capital, then the term ‘‘general creditors’’ as used in this definition of “Senior Indebtedness” will have the meaning as described in that rule or interpretation.
Notwithstanding anything in the Indenture to the contrary, Senior Indebtedness will continue to be Senior Indebtedness and entitled to the benefits of the subordination provisions of the Indenture irrespective of any amendment, modification or waiver of any term of the Senior Indebtedness or extension or renewal of the Senior Indebtedness.
(vii) “Default” means any Event of Default or events which, after notice or lapse of time or both would become, an Event of Default.
(viii) “Issue Date” means the date on which the Subordinated Notes are first issued.
(ix) “Payment or Covenant Event of Default” has the meaning assigned to such term in Section 7.01 of the Base Indenture as amended by this Supplemental Indenture.
(x) “Subsidiary” means, with respect to any specified Person: (1) any corporation, association or other business entity of which more than 50% of the total voting power of shares of Capital Stock entitled (without regard to the occurrence of any contingency and after giving effect to any voting agreement or stockholders’ agreement that effectively transfers voting power) to vote in the election of directors, managers or trustees of the corporation, association or other business entity is at the time owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, by that Person or one or more of the other Subsidiaries of that Person (or a combination thereof); and (2) any partnership (a) the sole general partner or the managing general partner of which is such Person or a Subsidiary of such Person or (b) the only general partners of which are that Person or one or more Subsidiaries of that Person (or any combination thereof).
(xi) “Tax Event” means the Company’s good-faith determination that, as a result of: (a) an amendment to or change (including any announced prospective amendment or change) in any law or treaty, or any regulation thereunder, of the United States or any of its political subdivisions or taxing authorities; (b) a judicial decision, administrative action, official administrative pronouncement, ruling, regulatory procedure, regulation, notice or announcement (any of the foregoing, an “administrative or judicial action”); or (c) an amendment to or change in any official position with respect to, or any interpretation of, an administrative or judicial action or a law or regulation of the United States that differs from the previously generally accepted position or interpretation, in each case, which amendment or change becomes effective or which administrative or judicial action is taken, announced or issued on or after the original issue date of the Subordinated Notes, there is more than an insubstantial risk that interest payable by the Company on the Subordinated Notes is not, or, within 90 days of the date of such determination, will not be, deductible by the Company, in whole or in part, for United States federal income tax purposes.
(xii) “Tier 2 Capital Event” means the Company’s good-faith determination that, as a result of: (a) any amendment to, or change in, the laws, rules, or regulations of the United States (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any agency or instrumentality of the United States, including the Federal Reserve and other federal bank regulatory agencies) or any political subdivision of or in the United States that is enacted or becomes effective after the original issue date of the Subordinated Notes; (b) any proposed change in those laws, rules or regulations that is announced or becomes effective after the original issue date of the Subordinated Notes; or (c) any official administrative decision or judicial decision or administrative action or other official pronouncement interpreting or applying those laws, rules, regulations, policies, or guidelines with respect thereto that is announced after the original issue date of the Subordinated Notes, there is more than an insubstantial risk that the Company will not be entitled to treat the Subordinated Notes then Outstanding as “Tier 2 Capital” (or its equivalent) for purposes of the capital adequacy rules or regulations of the Federal Reserve (or any successor appropriate federal banking agency) as then in effect and applicable to the Company, for so long as any Subordinated Notes are Outstanding.
General Terms and Conditions of the Subordinated Notes
Section 2.01. Designation and Principal Amount. There is hereby authorized and established a new series of Securities under the Base Indenture, designated as the “5.125% Subordinated Notes due 2030,” which is not limited in aggregate principal amount.

Section 2.02. Maturity. The stated maturity of principal for the Subordinated Notes will be June 11, 2030.
Section 2.03. Further Issues. The Company may from time to time, without the consent of the Holders of the Subordinated Notes, issue additional Subordinated Notes in an unlimited aggregate principal amount. Any such additional notes will have the same ranking, interest rate, Stated Maturity and other terms as the Subordinated Notes, except for any differences in the issue date and, in certain cases, the issue price and the first interest payment date, either of which may differ from the respective terms of any previously issued Subordinated Notes. The Subordinated Notes and any such additional notes subsequently issued under the Indenture would be treated as a single series of Securities for all purposes under the Indenture, including, without limitation, waivers, amendments, redemptions and offers to purchase; provided, that if any such additional notes subsequently issued under the Indenture are not fungible for U.S. federal income tax purposes with the Subordinated Notes, such additional notes shall trade separately from the Subordinated Notes under a separate CUSIP number, but shall otherwise be treated as a single series with the Subordinated Notes and all other such additional notes issued under the Indenture.

Section 2.06. Interest. The Subordinated Notes will bear interest at an annual rate equal to 5.125%. Interest on the Subordinated Notes will be payable semi-annually in arrears on June 11 and December 11 of each year (each such date, an “Interest Payment Date”), beginning on December 11, 2020, to the holders of record at the close of business on the preceding May 28 and November 27 of each year. Interest on the Subordinated Notes will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year comprised of twelve 30-day months. Interest payments on the Subordinated Notes will be the amount of interest accrued from, and including, June 11, 2020 or the most recent Interest Payment Date on which interest has been paid to, but excluding, the Interest Payment Date or the Stated Maturity, as the case may be.
If an Interest Payment Date, Redemption Date or the Stated Maturity falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the related payment of interest and principal will be made on the next day that is a Business Day, and no interest on the Subordinated Notes or such payment will accrue for the period from and after such Interest Payment Date, Redemption Date or Stated Maturity, as the case may be.
Section 2.07. Discount at Issuance. The Subordinated Notes issued on the date hereof are being purchased at the purchase price therefor set forth in that certain Underwriting Agreement, dated as of June 4, 2020, by and among the Company and BofA Securities, Inc., J.P.

In the case of an Event of Default that is a Payment or Covenant Event of Default, neither the Trustee nor the Holders of Subordinated Notes may act to accelerate the maturity of the Subordinated Notes. In such case, the Trustee may proceed to enforce any
covenant and other rights of the Holders of the Subordinated Notes. For the avoidance of doubt, there is no right of acceleration in the case of a default in the payment of principal of, premium (if any), or interest on the Subordinated Notes or in case of the Company’s nonperformance of any other covenant under the Subordinated Notes or the Indenture.
Section 5.08. Replacement of Provisions with Respect to Other Remedies. Section 7.03 of the Base Indenture is hereby replaced in its entirety with the following:
If any Payment or Covenant Event of Default shall occur that relates to the Company’s failure to make any payment of interest due and payable, and such Payment or Covenant Event of Default continues for 30 days or such Payment or Covenant Event of Default is made in the payment of the principal or any premium at its Maturity, then the Trustee may demand payment of the amounts then due and payable and may proceed to prosecute any failure on the Company’s part to make such payments (including by recovering judgment, in its own name and as trustee of an express trust, against the Company for the whole amount of such payments). Every recovery of judgment in any such action or other proceeding, subject to the payment to the Trustee of all amounts owing the Trustee and any predecessor trustee hereunder under Section 11.01(a), shall be for the ratable benefit of the Holders of such series of Securities which shall be the subject of such action or proceeding. All rights of action upon or under any of the Securities or this Indenture may be enforced by the Trustee without the possession of any of the Securities and without the production of any thereof at any trial or any proceeding relative thereto.
Section 5.09. Replacement of Provisions with Respect to Control by Securityholders; Waiver of Past Defaults. Section 7.06 of the Base Indenture is hereby replaced in its entirety with the following:
The Holders of a majority in principal amount of the Subordinated Notes at the time Outstanding may direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the Trustee hereunder, or of exercising any trust or power hereby conferred upon the Trustee with respect to the Subordinated Notes, provided, however, that, subject to the provisions of Sections 11.01 and 11.02 in the Indenture, the Trustee shall have the right to decline to follow any such direction if the Trustee being advised by counsel determines that the action so directed may not lawfully be taken or would be unduly prejudicial to Holders not joining in such direction or would involve the Trustee in personal liability. The Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the then-Outstanding Subordinated Notes by notice to the Trustee may, on behalf of the Holders of all of the Subordinated Notes, rescind an acceleration or waive any existing Default or Event of Default and its consequences under the Indenture except a continuing Event of Default in the payment of interest or premium, if any, on, or the principal of, the Subordinated Notes and except as to a covenant or condition which under Section 14.02 cannot be modified or amended without the consent of the Holder of each Outstanding Subordinated Note, in which case the consent of the Holder of each Outstanding Subordinated Note shall be required for such waiver. Upon any such waiver the
Company, the Trustee and the Holders of the Subordinated Notes shall be restored to their former positions and rights hereunder, respectively; but no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other Default or Event of Default or impair any right consequent thereon. Whenever any Default or Event of Default hereunder shall have been waived as permitted by this Section 7.06, said Default or Event of Default shall for all purposes of the Subordinated Notes and this Indenture be deemed to have been cured and to be not continuing. For the avoidance of doubt, any consent provided by Holders in connection with a waiver as permitted by this Section 7.06 shall include, without limitation, consents obtained in connection with a purchase of, or tender offer or exchange offer for, Subordinated Notes.
Section 5.10. Replacement of Provisions with Respect to Limitation on Suits. Section 7.07 of the Base Indenture is hereby replaced in its entirety with the following:
Subject to the provisions of the Indenture relating to the duties of the Trustee, if an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, the Trustee will be under no obligation to exercise any of the rights or powers under the Indenture at the request or direction of any Holders of Subordinated Notes unless such Holders have offered to the Trustee reasonable indemnity or security against any loss, liability or expense. Except to enforce the right to receive payment of principal, premium, if any, or interest, when due, no Holder of Subordinated Notes may pursue any remedy with respect to the Indenture or the Subordinated Notes unless:
(a) such Holder has previously given the Trustee notice that an Event of Default is continuing;
(b) Holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the then-Outstanding Subordinated Notes have requested the Trustee to pursue the remedy;
(c) such Holders have offered the Trustee reasonable security or indemnity against any loss, liability or expense;
(d) the Trustee has not complied with such request within 60 days after the receipt of the request and the offer of security or indemnity; and
(e) Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the then-Outstanding Subordinated Notes have not given the Trustee a direction inconsistent with such request within such 60-day period;
it being understood and intended that no one or more of the Holders of Subordinated Notes shall have any right in any manner whatsoever by his, her, its or their action to enforce any right hereunder, except in the manner herein provided, and that every action, suit or proceeding at law or in equity shall be instituted, had and maintained in the manner herein provided and for the equal benefit of all Holders of the Outstanding Subordinated Notes; provided, however, that nothing in this Section or this Indenture or in the Subordinated Notes shall affect or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on the Subordinated Notes to the respective Holders of such Subordinated Notes at the
