FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 6, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OptimumBank Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPHC) (the "Company"), bank holding company for OptimumBank, today announced that on June 29, 2010, the Company received a letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") indicating that the Company is not in compliance with Marketplace Rule 5450(a)(1) (the "Bid Price Rule") because the closing bid price per share of its common stock has been below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days.

In accordance with Marketplace Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided with a 180 calendar day grace period, or until December 27, 2010, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule. To regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock must remain at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days.

The Company is evaluating its options to resolve the deficiency, including a possible reverse stock split.

Effective July 1, 2010, the Company transferred the listing of its common stock to The Nasdaq Capital Market because the Company's market value of publicly held shares fell below the minimum $5 million requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Global Market.

Through its executive offices and three bank branches in Broward County, Florida, the Company offers real estate lending and retail banking products to individuals and businesses in Broward, Dade and Palm Beach Counties.
