FAIRMONT, W.Va., Feb. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MVB Financial Corp. (OTC Markets Group OTCQB: MVBF) ("MVB" or the "Company"), announced today that it intends to conduct a rights offering (the "Rights Offering") to issue shares of MVB common stock for a total value of approximately $5,000,000.
Pursuant to the Rights Offering, MVB will distribute non-transferable subscription rights ("Rights") entitling the holder to subscribe for their pro rata share of common stock at a price of $11.50 per share. No fractional Rights will be distributed and no fractional shares of common stock will be issued. MVB currently plans to fix a record date for the Rights Offering and to thereafter distribute Rights to holders of common stock as of the record date and to consummate the Rights Offering in the first quarter of 2017. The purchase price per share for shares of common stock in the Rights Offering is the same price paid by certain institutional investors who purchased shares of common stock in the previously announced $22 million private placement that closed on December 6, 2016 (the "Private Placement").
Rights holders who fully exercise their Rights will be entitled to subscribe for additional shares of common stock not purchased by other Rights holders through their basic subscription privilege, subject to proration. The Company intends to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") a prospectus supplement to the Company's existing shelf registration statement on Form S-3 in order to effect the issuance of shares of common stock in the Rights Offering.
The Company also intends to permit Larry F. Mazza, the Company's Chief Executive Officer and a director, to participate in the rights offering in an amount that would result in an aggregate purchase by Mazza of up to $1,150,000 of common stock through his participation in the Rights Offering, with the participation of all other existing stockholders in the remaining amount that will be eligible for purchase in the Rights Offering. This ownership participation by Mazza is in accordance with his commitment made in the summer of 2016, to certain institutional investors to make such an investment following the Company's Private Placement.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the securities, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of the securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification of the securities under the securities laws of such state or jurisdiction. The rights offering will be made only by means of a prospectus supplement, copies of which will be mailed to all eligible record date shareholders and can be accessed through the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.
