Porter Bancorp, Inc. Raises Additional $4.25 Million In Stock Offering

In addition, the Company granted the new purchaser an option to purchase an additional 64,784 shares of common stock and a warrant for 32,392 shares of its non-voting common stock, which will enable the new investor to make a total investment of $5 million. The option will not be exercisable until the Company obtains shareholder approval and will have a term of five business days.

More detailed information regarding the private placement will be included in the Company’s 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Company and its directors and officers may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from Company shareholders in connection with (1) the proposal to issue common stock upon the conversion of Series B Preferred Stock, Series C Preferred Stock, and Non-Voting Common Stock in accordance with NASDAQ Rule 5635; and (2) the proposal to authorize the new class of Non-Voting Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants. Information about the Company’s directors and executive officers and their ownership of Company stock is set forth in the proxy statement for the Company’s 2010 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

Shareholders can obtain more information when the proxy statement relating to shareholder approval of the foregoing proposals becomes available. This proxy statement, and any other documents filed by the Company with the SEC, may be obtained free of charge at the SEC website at www.sec.gov. Shareholders should read the proxy statement carefully, when it becomes available, before making any voting decision because it will contain important information.
