Park National Corporation Announces Completion Of Series B Common Share Warrant Capital Raise

NEWARK, Ohio, Nov. 1, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Park National Corporation (Park) (NYSE Amex:PRK) today announced that in the second, third and fourth quarters of 2010, investors holding outstanding Series B Common Share Warrants exercised a portion of the Warrants to purchase 187,200 common shares, generating net proceeds for Park of approximately $12.3 million (net of selling expenses). Park has raised $82.2 million from the sale of common shares (net of selling and administrative costs) since the second quarter of 2009.

The Warrants, which had a strike price of $67.75 per common share, represented 75 percent of the 250,000 common shares subject to the Series B Common Share Warrants Park issued in the registered direct offering which closed on October 30, 2009. The remaining portion of the Series B Common Share Warrants Park issued in October 2009 (covering 62,800 common shares) expired on October 30, 2010.

"We are pleased to have raised additional capital at $67.75 per share. At September 30, 2010, our common book value per common share was $43.10, therefore, we raised this capital at over 1.5 times common book value," said Park Chairman C. Daniel DeLawder. "With the expiration of the Series B Common Share Warrants, we completed a very successful common equity raise with Rodman & Renshaw in which we issued 937,200 common shares, raising common equity of $58.5 million."

Rodman & Renshaw, LLC, a subsidiary of Rodman & Renshaw Capital Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:RODM), acted as the exclusive placement agent for the transaction.

Headquartered in Newark, Ohio, Park National Corporation has $7.1 billion in total assets (as of September 30, 2010). Park consists of 13 community bank divisions and two specialty finance companies. Park's Ohio-based banking operations are conducted through Park subsidiary The Park National Bank and its divisions which include Fairfield National Bank Division, Richland Bank Division, Century National Bank Division, First-Knox National Bank Division, Farmers & Savings Bank Division, United Bank Division, Second National Bank Division, Security National Bank Division, Unity National Bank Division and The Park National Bank of Southwest Ohio & Northern Kentucky Division.
