OptimumBank Holdings, Inc. Regains Compliance With NASDAQ Minimum Bid Price Rule

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., June 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OptimumBank Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPHC) ("Company"), the parent company of OptimumBank, announced today that it has received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market ("Nasdaq") advising that the Company has regained compliance with Nasdaq's minimum bid price listing requirements.

As previously disclosed, on June 20, 2012, Nasdaq staff notified the Company that its common stock failed to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 over the previous 30 consecutive business days as required by the Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) of The Nasdaq Stock Market. On June 17, 2013, the Company received notification from Nasdaq that for 10 consecutive business days, from June 3 through June 14, 2013, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock has been at $1.00 per share or greater and the Company has regained compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). The matter is now considered closed.

"We are very pleased that the stock has regained compliance and will continue to be traded on the Nasdaq Capital Market. This is a positive development for the Company and our shareholders and is in line with our desire to remain a public company. The liquidity of public ownership lets shareholders trade easily and encourages greater investor participation. As a public firm we may more easily use our shares as future merger and acquisition currency," stated Moishe Gubin, Chairman of OptimumBank Holdings, Inc.

OptimumBank offers a wide array of lending and retail banking products to individuals and businesses in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties through its executive offices and three branch offices in Broward County, Florida.
