Independent Bank Corporation Receives Nasdaq Notification

IONIA, Mich., Dec. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Independent Bank Corporation (Nasdaq: IBCP), a Michigan-based community bank, announced that it was notified by The Nasdaq Stock Market that the Company no longer meets the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Global Select Market under Listing Rule 5450(a)(1). This notice does not result in the immediate delisting of the Company's common stock from The Nasdaq Global Select Market because the Company has a grace period of 180 calendar days under the listing rules, or until June 21, 2010, in which to regain compliance with the minimum bid price rule.

The deficiency letter, dated Dec. 21, 2009, states that if the bid price of the Company's common stock closes at or above $1.00 per share for at least 10 consecutive business days by June 21, 2010, Nasdaq will notify the Company that the matter will be closed. If the Company does not regain compliance by June 21, 2010, Nasdaq will notify the Company that its securities are subject to delisting, which delisting determination could be appealed by the Company.  Alternatively, the Company may be eligible for an additional grace period if it meets the initial listing standards, with the exception of bid price, of The Nasdaq Capital Market and the Company applies to transfer the listing of its common stock to The Nasdaq Capital Market.

The Company is evaluating its options following receipt of this notification and, where possible and deemed in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders, currently intends to take appropriate actions in order to retain the listing of its common stock on the Nasdaq stock market.
