Patriot National Bancorp Announces The Results Of Its Special Meeting Of Shareholders

Patriot National Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:PNBK), parent of Patriot National Bank, announced the results of its Special Meeting of Shareholders held on August 25, 2010, including approval of the issuance and sale by the Company of shares to PNBK Holdings LLC (“Holdings”) pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement entered into in December 2009, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Securities Purchase Agreement.

The following matters were approved by the Company’s shareholders at the Special Meeting:

  • An amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to reduce the par value of a share of Company common stock from $2.00 per share to $0.01 per share;
  • An amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of Company common stock from 60,000,000 to 100,000,000 shares; and
  • The Securities Purchase Agreement between the Company, Patriot National Bank and Holdings and the issuance and sale by the Company of approximately 33,333,333 shares of Company common stock (as adjusted) to Holdings.

“The approval of Patriot shareholders represents the completion of a required step in the Holdings transaction,” said Angelo De Caro, Chairman of Patriot.

“We are very excited that Patriot shareholders demonstrated such overwhelming support for the Holdings transaction,” said Mr. Michael Carrazza of Holdings. “We believe that this transaction provides the means to restore the Bank to ‘well-capitalized’ status and positions Patriot for recovery and long-term sustainable growth.”
