FLINT, Mich., Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Citizens Republic Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq: CRBC) announced today that it was modifying its December 11 announcement regarding the resumption of payments on its 7.50% junior subordinated debentures due September 2066 and related trust preferred securities (NYSE: CTZ-PrA). The previous announcement stated that the deferred payments would be paid on December 27, 2012 to holders of record on December 19, 2012. Due to certain terms of the underlying trust preferred documentation, the company regrettably is not permitted to pay the deferred payments (currently totaling approximately $12 million) until March 15, 2013.

Citizens intends to pay the deferred payments on March 15, 2013 to holders of record as of a new record date in March 2013, to be determined in accordance with the underlying trust preferred documentation. Citizens also intends to resume the regular quarterly interest payment schedule on that date.
