DALLAS, Dec. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Triumph Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:TBK) today announced that it had received all necessary regulatory approvals to redeem all of the outstanding shares of Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series T1 and Series T2 (the "TARP Preferred Stock") issued by its wholly-owned subsidiary, National Bancshares, Inc. ("NBI"). Triumph previously disclosed its intent to redeem the TARP Preferred Stock with a portion of the proceeds from its recently completed initial public offering. The TARP Preferred Stock was initially issued by NBI to the U.S. Department of Treasury under the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) and was subsequently auctioned off to private investors prior to Triumph's acquisition of NBI in October 2013.  The TARP Preferred Stock will be redeemed for $26.2 million (which is a price equal to the liquidation amount of such TARP Preferred Stock, which totals $25.9 million in aggregate, plus accrued and unpaid dividends to, but excluding, the redemption date, which total $0.3 million in aggregate). It is anticipated that the redemption will be consummated on or about December 31, 2014.  The redemption of the TARP Preferred Stock is not expected to impact net income to common shareholders in the fourth quarter of 2014, as the TARP Preferred Stock is carried, and will be redeemed, at par value.
