TROY, Mich., Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Flagstar Bancorp, Inc. (NYSE: FBC) ("Flagstar" or the "Company") announced that effective at 4:15 p.m. EDT today, shares of its common stock will be subject to a reverse split on a one-for-ten basis.

Flagstar stockholders will receive one new share of Flagstar common stock for every ten shares held at the effective time. The reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of outstanding common stock from approximately 558.3 million to approximately 55.8 million. The number of authorized shares of common stock will be reduced from 700 million to 70 million. Proportional adjustments will be made to Flagstar's outstanding options, warrants and other securities entitling their holders to purchase or receive shares of Flagstar common stock. In lieu of fractional shares, stockholders will receive cash. Cash payments for fractional shares will be determined on the basis of the stock's closing price on October 9, 2012, adjusted for the reverse stock split.
