LAKEVILLE, Conn., Dec. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Salisbury Bancorp, Inc. ("Salisbury") (NYSE MKT:SAL), the holding company for Salisbury Bank and Trust Company, announced today that it has been approved for listing on The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC, where it will trade on the NASDAQ Capital Market under its current symbol "SAL." Trading on the NASDAQ is expected to commence on December 26, 2012. Salisbury's common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE Amex until the market close on December 24, 2012.

Richard J. Cantele, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We believe that the move to NASDAQ will improve the visibility of our stock and enhance trading liquidity in our shares. By moving to NASDAQ we will be joining our banking peers, where approximately 81% of banks are listed, compared with 3% on NYSE Amex and 16% on NYSE.
