Jacksonville Bancorp, Inc. Board Approves Reverse Stock Split

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacksonville Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: JAXB), holding company for The Jacksonville Bank, announced today that its Board of Directors (the "Board") has approved a 1-for-20 reverse stock split of its common stock and nonvoting common stock.  The Company anticipates that the reverse stock split will be effective on or about October 24, 2013.  The Company's shareholders had authorized the Board to approve a reverse stock split at a ratio of up to 1-for-20 at the special meeting of shareholders in February.

The reverse stock split is being implemented primarily for the purpose of regaining compliance with the $1.00 per share minimum closing bid price requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market, although there is no assurance that this will be achieved. 

When the reverse split becomes effective, every 20 shares of common stock held by a shareholder will automatically combine into one (1) new share of common stock, and every 20 shares of nonvoting common stock held by a shareholder will automatically combine into one (1) new share of nonvoting common stock.  No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split; any fractional shares that would have resulted from the reverse split will be rounded up to the nearest whole share.  The number of authorized shares of common stock and nonvoting common stock will be proportionately reduced as a result of the reverse split; there will be no change in par value for such shares.
