Highlight of Business Operations:

Jay S. Yoo joined Hanmi Financial and Hanmi Bank as President and Chief Executive Officer as of June 23, 2008. His Employment Agreement, effective June 23, 2008, has a two-year initial term, with an option to renew for an additional three years at the discretion of the Board of Directors of Hanmi Financial, and provides for a yearly base salary of $330,000, with a target bonus of up to seventyfive percent (75%) of his annual base salary. Per the Employment Agreement, Mr. Yoos annual base salary was to be increased by $10,000 in June 2009. Mr. Yoo voluntarily relinquished the increase in base salary and the Board of Directors accepted his request as a well intentioned gesture towards the staff who did not receive a base salary adjustment in 2009.

In 2009, he received an annual base salary of $270,000, as well as an auto allowance of $700 per month, a cell phone allowance of $100 per month, a gas card, and other general benefits afforded to all employees.

Mr. Park also was entitled to an automobile allowance of $700 per month, reimbursement of cell phone expenses of $100 per month, and other general benefits afforded to all employees.

Mr. Jung Hak Son served as Senior Vice President and District Leader for the past 4 years and was promoted to the position of Interim Chief Credit Officer on October 21, 2009. His employment is at-will and there is no employment agreement between the bank and Mr. Son. His compensation package was not changed at the time of appointment to the Interim Chief Credit Officer position. His compensation at the time of his appointment included a base salary of $180,000, plus a bonus of up to forty percent of his base salary. The bonus payable to Mr. Son is wholly dependent on the banks performance and his individual performance. He is also entitled to an auto allowance of $700 per month, a $100 per month cell phone allowance, and other general benefits afforded to all employees.
