OptimumBank Holdings, Inc. Completes 1-for-4 Reverse Stock Split

Stocks in this article: OPHC

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OptimumBank Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPHC) announced today that it is effecting a one-for-four (1:4) reverse split of its common stock, effective at the close of business today. The reverse stock split, which was authorized by its Board of Directors, was approved by the Company's shareholders on April 30, 2013 at the annual meeting of shareholders. The Company's common stock will commence trading on June 3, 2013 on a split-adjusted basis under the symbol OPHC with a new CUSIP number (68401P304).

The Company has implemented the reverse stock split in order to meet the Nasdaq listing rules that require the Company to maintain at least a $1.00 per share minimum bid price. Reducing the number of outstanding shares of the Company's common stock through the reverse stock split is intended to increase the per share market price of the common stock. The Company's Board of Directors believes that increasing the per share trading price of the common stock will result in the price being increased above, and remaining above, the $1.00 bid price required by the Nasdaq listing rules. However, other factors, such as the Company's financial results, market conditions and the market perception of its business may adversely affect the market price of the Company's common stock. As a result, there can be no assurance that the market price stock will increase following the reverse stock split, that the market price will not decrease in the future, or that the Company will otherwise be able to comply with applicable listing requirements.

In the reverse split, each four shares of issued and outstanding common stock will be converted automatically into one share of common stock. Fractional shares resulting from the reverse stock split will be rounded up to the next whole share. The number of shares of the Company's common stock issued and outstanding will be reduced from approximately 31,511,201 shares of common stock as of May 31, 2013 to approximately 7,877,800 shares outstanding post split. The reverse split will also have a proportionate effect on all stock options outstanding as of May 31, 2013.
