Capital Bank Announces Withdrawal Of Common Stock Offering

RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Capital Bank Corporation (Nasdaq: CBKN), the parent company of Capital Bank, today announced that it has withdrawn its registration statement with respect to the public offering of approximately $55 million in common stock due to unfavorable market conditions.

"As a result of the prevailing poor market conditions, the likely pricing for our previously announced common stock offering did not meet our criteria and was not at a level that was in the best interests of our shareholders," noted B. Grant Yarber, President and CEO. "We remain focused on preserving and building shareholder value and believe that raising capital in the current environment and the resulting potential dilution to our current shareholders would conflict with our goals."

Yarber added, "While the offering was well-received, poor industry market conditions in recent weeks have adversely impacted the capital raising environment. We are fortunate to control our own destiny. The withdrawal of our registration statement does not change the overall fundamentals of our business, which remain quite strong. Our bank remains 'well-capitalized' for regulatory purposes, our growth prospects remain favorable, and we believe we continue to be well-positioned for continued profitability and growth. Moving forward, we plan to continue to focus our efforts on growing our business and taking care of our customers, as we have always done. We remain focused on enhancing shareholder value and implementing our strategic corporate objectives."

The Company will continue to monitor market conditions and may recommence the offering should conditions improve and may explore other capital growth alternatives.
