HAMBURG, N.Y., Dec. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evans Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:EVBN), a community financial services company serving Western New York since 1920, announced today that it is transferring its stock exchange listing from the NASDAQ Global Market to the New York Stock Exchange Amex LLC ("NYSE Amex"). The NYSE is home to many leading companies, including 93% of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, 82% of the S&P 500, and 81% of the Fortune 500.

The Company expects to begin trading on the NYSE on December 27, 2010, using the current symbol "EVBN." It will continue to trade on the NASDAQ Global Market until the transfer is completed. 

"We are very pleased about our move to the NYSE Amex, a premier global trading platform with an unparalleled premium brand," stated David J. Nasca, Evans' President and CEO. "We believe this move will avail us of a unique market trading structure, provide the benefits of the designated market maker platform, and benefit Evans and our shareholders through decreased volatility, added visibility in the financial markets, and increased liquidity of our common stock. Additionally, we believe our move to the NYSE Amex will further enhance our investor outreach as we continue to build shareholder value."

"We welcome Evans Bancorp to the NYSE Euronext family of listed companies," said Scott Cutler, EVP and Co-Head of U.S. Listings and Cash Execution, NYSE Euronext. "Evans Bancorp and its shareholders will benefit from the superior market quality, services and technology provided by NYSE Amex. We look forward to a strong, lasting partnership."
